We strongly encourage you to begin your academic career by attending Orientation. Attending Orientation is the best way to acclimate to life at USC, become familiar with the campus, learn about student life and register for your first semester of course work. In addition, you will receive academic advisement, and meet current faculty, staff, and students. Registration for our Winter Orientation opens August 1.
Welcome to USC! One of the reasons we are such a dynamic and diverse community is that, each year, thousands of new students like you bring your talent and experience to our campus. That is likely what attracted you to USC in the first place. Help us continue our tradition of excellence. Make your reservation now.
At USC, we believe Orientation is a process, not just an event. Orientation Programs hosts continued programs and activities for new students throughout the academic year. Continued participation in activities and events is an important step in making the transition to life as a Trojan and is the best way to acclimate yourself to life as a USC student.
USC Orientation Programs is responsible for ensuring a strong solid transition for all new student to the USC community. The leadership team in Orientation programs consists of professional/full-time staff members, graduate student assistants and undergraduate students who have previous experience with Orientation.
