We want you to be academically successful. You fulfill this requirement by maintaining a 3.0 or higher cumulative GPA.
We want you to step outside your comfort zone and set a goal for yourself that challenges you in a meaningful way. This will look differently for each one of you!
You can submit this through the Capstone Scholars organization in Garnet Gate.
We ask that you to enroll in a University 101 section during your first semester at USC, preferably a section created specifically for Capstone Scholars. Certain majors might be required to take a special section or alternate course in place of UNIV101 (e.g. Engineering majors, Teaching Fellows, & nursing students), for which we make an exception.
Capstone Scholars must have a university scholarship to be competitive for admission into the program. Please note that these scholarships are granted and revoked independently of our office, and more information about your standing with a scholarship can be found through the office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.
