Tips for Limited Student Applicants
- USC ID: Under "USC Background Information," select 'Yes' for the question 'Have you previously applied or attended USC?' and indicate your existing 10-digit USC ID.
- Academic History:
- Upload a copy of your official, university-issued transcripts on institutional letterhead for all postsecondary institutions attended. Missing transcripts will result in an incomplete status and delayed application review.
- Include USC under 'Colleges Attended' to ensure your Limited Status coursework is included in your application review. You do not need to upload your USC transcripts.
- DEN@Viterbi Status: In the 'Questions' section under 'Program Materials' select 'Yes' under 'Do you intend to pursue your graduate program fully online via DEN@Viterbi?'
Contact DEN@Viterbi.usc.edu if you have any questions before, during, or after the application process. Be sure to include your 10-digit USC ID, full name and the program(s) you have applied to in all email communications.
