Meet Us: For Counselors

Events for Counselors

Over the last several years, the quality of students attending USC has risen meteorically. Not only are test scores soaring, but incoming classes comprise students who are gifted academically, creatively and emotionally—many of our students have shown great potential for future success.

We value your role in this process and appreciate the contributions you make to our profession. We invite you to attend special events designed to introduce you to, or update your knowledge of, USC’s application process, academic and professional programs and financial aid.
