What does it mean to be "Undeclared" at USC?

Being an “undeclared” student at USC means that you are not yet enrolled in a specific degree-granting major. There are several reasons a student may be undeclared, the most common of which include:

  • Being undecided about academic path, career path, or both
  • Wanting to learn more about what majors are offered at USC
  • Trying to decide between a few majors of interest
  • Waiting until it is possible to move into a major of choice

Regardless of the reason for being undeclared, USC has academic advising and coaching specifically tailored to your needs! To learn more, choose an option below that best describes you.
