Uploading of Test Scores (required for all applicants)
All admissions decisions are made by the Admissions Committee based on unofficial test scores that are uploaded into the online application as follows:
GMAT or GRE score report – All candidates must submit at least one of these exams. The only exception are those candidates who are applying to the MD/MBA dual degree program. These tests must have been taken on or after August 1, 2015. If you have taken both tests, please submit both. Upload unofficial copies (examinee score report or test-day printout) into your online application. Note: You must either upload your score report into the application or provide the intended future test date in the appropriate field in the application. Failure to do this may result in a deny decision.
TOEFL or IELTS – The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or International English Language Testing System (IELTS) score report is required for most international applicants. For details, please review the “Information for International Applicants” tab. These exams must have been taken on or after August 1, 2018. Upload unofficial copies (examinee report or test-day printout) into your online application.
Submitting Official Test Scores (required for all enrolling students)
Test Scores – If admitted, every enrolling candidate will need to submit official test scores (provided to USC by the testing service). To save time, applicants should, at the time of test registration, have the testing service(s) forward the official, confidential school report using the following institution codes:
- GMAT: 389-9C-23
- GRE: 4852
- TOEFL: 4852
- IETLS: Choose “University of Southern California, Graduate Programs.” Do not enter the name and contact information of your specific intended graduate department. USC will only accept electronic IELTS scores. Paper scores are not considered official.
