Transfer Planning

Need help with course selection? Wondering if your current courses will transfer to USC? The following pages can help you plan your transfer to USC and answer many of the questions you may have.

Please note: USC has revised its General Education requirements for students starting college in fall 2015 or after. Please check back later this summer for more details, as we will be updating this site and our publications. In the meantime, please refer to the Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences page for more information. If you have immediate questions or concerns, you can contact your Admission Counselor through our Find Your USC Admission Counselor page.

Students who enrolled in college full-time prior to fall 2015 (not including summer semesters) can use these tools to guide their course selection.
