Fall 2021 Enrollment Options
(Last updated on June 1, 2021)
Based on the current situation, the downward trend in COVID-19 cases and the positive vaccination rate, USC plans to be primarily on-campus for Fall 2021. However, this decision is contingent on the aforementioned trends continuing in a positive manner and pending approval from the state of California and Los Angeles county. The Viterbi School of Engineering will offer alternate options for students who cannot attend classes in person on the USC campus.
Below are the options available to all of our newly admitted Fall 2021 students.
Attend as an on-campus student.
Enroll in 1-2 online classes in your home city.
INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS: By taking the Fall 2021 semester online, the earliest you will be eligible for CPT is Spring 2023.
Update your application to Spring or Fall of 2022. Your admission application must undergo review again with no guarantee of the same admission decision.
In order to submit a request for updating to a future term, complete the required online form (link and details to the right).
IMPORTANT: Email requests will not be considered.
