Application Deadlines

Applications are accepted for admission for the fall, spring and summer terms, and students may enter into the program at any semester throughout the year.  The priority review deadline (one month before each final deadline) is particularly suggested for international students to ensure visa requirements are met for the expected start date.

Current USC students may apply for the MS program up until two weeks before the start of the semester. USC students who are interested in enrolling in HCDA courses may contact our senior program administrator, Michelle Ton | tonm@usc.edu.
