International Transfer
Students should complete the international transfer application if they are non-US citizens who have attended or are currently attending a post-secondary institution.

Change of Campus
If you are currently enrolled as a degree seeking student at another USC campus besides Columbia, and wish to change to the Columbia campus, you must complete this form. You must be currently enrolled to complete this form.

Application for Readmission
