Marshall 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. 

Due to the uncertainty of COVID-19, TSP will be held entirely online through Zoom. Sessions will be highly interactive. Therefore, we expect those participating in the program will be active members and engage with one another. All TSP sessions will also be recorded to provide the most flexibility for students who are unable to make the sessions due to time zone differences.

Benefits of Joining

  • Gain access to a community of peers at Marshall that can be a continuous source of support during the program and throughout your time at USC;

  • Receive personalized assistance in regards to academic and career goals from Marshall staff, including Academic Advisors, Career Advisors, and Marshall faculty;

  • Be introduced to university resources early-on;

  • And strengthen key skills needed to succeed as a Marshall student and business professional.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Must be an incoming transfer student at USC Marshall School of Business or Leventhal School of Accounting for fall 2020.

  • Although open to all transfer students, TSP is intended for students who are historically from underrepresented ethnic and cultural backgrounds, or who identify as first generation (first in their family) to go to college.

  • Must complete the online application by Sunday, August 2 at 11:59pm PST.
  • If selected to participate in the program, you must be available to attend all of the sessions* and events noted below (accommodations  can be made on a case by case basis):
