Transfer Students


By the end of your first year, we recommend you:

Understand your transfer credit

Review your Transfer Credit Report to ensure all intended coursework has transferred to USC. Be sure to submit all official transcripts to the Articulation Office before the end of your first semester.

Schedule an appointment with your Academic Advisor if you have any questions or concerns regarding your transfer coursework.

Apply for the Transfer Success Program (TSP)

TSP is a 6-week program that helps incoming transfer students maximize their time at USC Marshall and build a community among other transfer students. Although open to all transfer students, TSP is intended for students who are historically from underrepresented ethnic and cultural backgrounds, and who identify as first generation (or first in their family) to go to college.

Through a series of weekly sessions, participants will be introduced to topics such as: 

  • Getting involved 
  • Academic support services 
  • Career resources 
  • Building relationships with faculty 

For more details, please visit the Transfer Success Program webpage.
