Welcome to USC! We are excited that you are joining the Trojan Family and look forward to seeing you at Orientation.
Graduate Student Orientation is designed for certified students* who have been admitted to a graduate or professional program. Students admitted to online programs do not need to plan to attend the in-person graduate orientation.
*Students who have submitted the Intent to Enroll in Graduate Studies and any commitment deposit required by their program of study.
Though most departments will hold their own orientation sessions for new graduate students, our event will introduce you to campus life and the university’s resources, as well as its expectations for graduate-level study and research.
