If I’m admitted to the spring, exactly what do during the fall semester?

As being a spring admit, you have can use the fall semester in a number of ways. Perhaps you will decide to take college courses, maybe traveling abroad is appealing, or maybe it’s that you’re considering working or spending your time volunteering.

We recommend that pupils just take classes at their local community college or as a non-degree seeking student at a regional college. In the event that you do decide to take college courses, be sure to consult with your admission counselor to review which courses transfer to USC.

But, what about planning to football games during the fall?

Spring students are able to shop for football tickets after publishing the Enrollment Commitment Deposit on line.
