Virtual Tours and Programs
As LA County continues to open up, USC has adapted campus guidelines while keeping the health and safety of our campus and community members at the top of our mind. As part of our gradual reopening, limited on-campus tours will resume at reduced-capacity. Please visit our On-Campus Tours page to learn more. Due to limited tour guide staffing and small group sizes, prospective students are still encouraged to first sign up for the virtual programs listed on this page.
Please know that we do not use demonstrated interest in our application reviews. Whether or not you have been able to visit campus will not impact any future or current applications to USC. For the latest on USC’s current plans, visit the We are SC website. It is updated regularly and is the official source for USC information about COVID-19 and its impact on our university. All questions regarding on-campus and virtual programming can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
