Information Guide

The following is a list of handbooks and useful Websites that are available to help you get acquainted with what USC has to offer.

Catalogue

The online course Catalogue is your academic roadmap for USC. Organized by school, the Catalogue lists detailed descriptions and requirements for every major, minor, certificate and program offered at the university as well as course descriptions. It’s the book both current and prospective students refer to for information regarding everything from school admission requirements to interdisciplinary programs. Published by the Academic Records and Registrar Publications office, the Catalogue is updated annually and is available online at usc.edu/catalogue.

USC Student Affairs and Campus Life Website

The USC Student Affairs and Campus Life Website at studentaffairs.usc.edu features all the news you need to know to make the most of your time at USC. The Website keeps you informed about Trojan life outside the classroom with news articles, videos, an events calendar, profiles, and links to Student Affairs departments and campus partners. Topics range from upcoming events, community service, student government, cultural and leadership opportunities to student-run media, career services, health promotion and the Trojan Marching Band.

The goal of these online resources is to create an integrated learning experience that helps you reach your educational, personal and professional aspirations.
