Welcome To
The USC Transfer Success Program & Veteran Student Program!

The Transfer Success Program & Veteran Student Program strives to facilitate a smooth transition into USC for transfer and veteran students that results in a strong connection to the Trojan Family. TVSP achieves this by serving as a comprehensive campus resource that also develops programs to enhance transfer and veteran students' success academically, professionally, and socially, which results in increased retention, persistence and satisfaction. Our vision is to create a transfer and military friendly campus at the University of Southern California.
