It was recently ranked #25 in the nation by US News & World Report. USC enrolls more international students than any other U.S. university and offers extensive opportunities for internships and studying abroad.

Undergraduate Tuition & Mandatory Fees (2014-15 academic year)
Two-semester cost for full-time undergraduate student: $48,347. There are many opportunities for both financial aid and merit-based scholarships. 21% of the 2014 entering freshman class received a merit-based scholarship from USC and over 66% received some form of financial aid. In 2012-13, USC awarded over $464 million in financial aid and scholarships. We encourage you to apply in spite of the price tag.
USC strives to maintain a safe and secure environment for its students, staff, faculty and visitors and employs one of the largest university law enforcement agencies in the nation. The Department of Public Safety operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, with more than 280 full-time members and up to 15 part-time workers. DPS serves the 226-acre University Park Campus and patrols the surrounding North University Park neighborhoods, covering an area of 2.2 miles.
The university’s Campus Cruiser service provides a “safe ride home” for students and staff after dusk, within a two-mile radius of campus. Students are also encouraged to sign up for the free TrojansAlert emergency notification system, which provides real-time updates via e-mail or text message in the event of a campus emergency or natural disaster.
Crime prevention and campus safety are a shared responsibility between DPS; city resources such as the LAPD; and students, staff, faculty and visitors. DPS depends on the campus community to help promote best practices, encourage responsible behavior and report suspicious activity or crimes in progress.
