Considering USC for your NSE Exchange?
If you are interested in coming to USC through NSE, please contact the NSE coordinator on your home campus. Please do not reach out to USC until you have received a placement through the NSE program.
Students who are interested in coming to USC on exchange should check out the USC profile page on the NSE website.
Please note the 2.8 minimum GPA requirement, on-campus housing requirement, associated costs, and closed/limited majors.
Once you have been accepted through the NSE program, you will get your admissions instructions in a detailed packet provided by the USC NSE coordinator. All paperwork must be submitted, and all fees paid, prior to the deadlines listed. Failure to complete items by the listed deadlines could result in your exchange being canceled.
Check the email account listed on your application often and be prepared to attend a required NSE orientation.
Please contact us if you need assistance with the process at email@example.com.
For advisement, please complete the following course registration form and read the information below.
Incoming students who want to take a math course at USC must take a placement exam.
Meet with your home school advisor to plan courses that will transfer back to your home institution. Working in tandem, you can ensure that your coursework meets the academic requirements for major or degree progression.
Get approval for multiple course options, in case first choices are not available
at registration. Please note course restrictions and availability. USC's NSE coordinator
cannot provide course overrides.
Students at USC are considered full-time if they register for 12 credits. However, a student can take up to 16 credits without additional charges. If you are interested in signing up for more than 16 credit hours, please contact the USC Bursar's Office to discuss additional charges.
NSE students who participate at USC are using HOME payment, (also called Plan B), meaning tuition and mandatory fees are paid to the home campus. Housing, meals, and other general fees may need to be paid to the host school.
Incoming NSE students are required to live in on-campus housing. Greek Village is NOT considered on-campus housing. Housing applications are due in late April.
NSE students are frequently housed together, but that is not a guarantee. Housing assignments are at the discretion of University Housing, not the NSE program.
