I want to complete the following application: (select one)*

Freshman I am graduating or already graduated from high school, never attended college after graduation (except for summer following high school). A student who participates in dual enrollment while attending high school is considered a 'freshman' for admission purposes.
Transfer I graduated from high school and have attended at least one college or university, even if no courses have been completed or credit has been earned.
Readmit I attended USC Columbia before, but have not been enrolled for at least one full spring or fall term, nor have I attended any other colleges since leaving USC. (Students who have attended USC as a degree-seeking student in the past and have attended another non-USC institution since leaving USC must complete the Transfer Application above.)
Non-Degree I am not seeking a degree at USC, but will be seeking specific courses for personal interest or for transient credit at another institution. Students planning to earn a bachelors degree from USC must complete the Transfer application. Nondegree students are ineligible for federal student aid.
International I am completing secondary education in a country other than the United States, and I am not a citizen of the United States.
