More information on admissions
At the discretion of the admission committee, personal interviews may be required for admission consideration. Other supplementary materials and information may also be required. It is incumbent upon each applicant to visit the appropriate school’s website to understand the filing deadline and materials required.
The WBB admission committee is comprised of program and admission directors from each school acting as full and equal partners. The committee selects the incoming WBB cohort. Interested students are encouraged to visit each school’s website to learn about the specific WBB application processes and recruitment programming. In an effort to accommodate school-specific admission protocols and schedules, WBB applicants are encouraged to select the application channel that best suits their needs.
Each student should submit only one WBB application. Applicants are advised to submit to the university where they want to be considered for admission to its other programs. Similarly, applying to WBB will not influence chances for admission to any of the three universities or other programs of interest.
Prospective freshmen applicants are encouraged to visit campus through one of our visit programs. In addition, USC offers admission programming in many domestic and international city venues. Please see our upcoming event schedule for more details,
