FAQ: Student Academics

Against a backdrop of global uncertainty brought on by the pandemic, the 8,000 classes being offered this semester will ensure you receive a world-class education that equips you with the skills and experience to succeed in a world that is likely to remain unpredictable and fast-changing for the foreseeable future.

Below are the answers to frequently asked questions related to academics. International students can view additional guidance related to visas, immigration status, travel and more in the FAQs for International Students. Student researchers should see the Research FAQs. For health-related information, view the Health and Safety FAQs.

If you have questions that are not answered in our FAQs, please email covid19@usc.edu. Our response team will help find an answer.

Timeline and Framework

The Spring 2021 semester will begin on January 15. USC has scheduled five Wellness Days throughout the Spring: March 12; March 23; April 7; April 22; and April 30. Following the final Wellness Day on April 30, Study Days will begin. Final exams conclude on May 12 for undergraduate students.

Graduate programs may elect to follow the revised calendar as detailed above or adhere to their original calendars. Please consult with your individual programs if you are unsure.

To minimize the risk of the virus spreading due to travel, there will be no spring break. In its place, the university has scheduled five Wellness Days, on which there will be no classes and no classwork expected of students. Students are encouraged to use this time to rest, exercise, and connect with friends and family.

Spring 2021 Wellness Days

  • Friday, March 12
  • Tuesday, March 23
  • Wednesday, April 7
  • Thursday, April 22
  • Friday, April 30

Graduate and professional students should check with their individual programs for information about Spring 2021 Wellness Days/spring recess.

Students will be able to choose a Pass/No Pass grading option in Spring 2021 through April 30. The deadline to withdraw from a course in Spring is likewise extended through April 30, 2021.

Under the red tier status, the university will take several additional steps that align with Phase 3 of USC’s reopening plan:

-   Research activity will be ramped up from 50% of normal capacity to full capacity, while continuing to adhere to physical distancing, PPE, and testing guidelines.

-   Study canopies are now available for individual students to reserve. Guidelines and information on how to make reservations are available on the USC Student Affairs website.

-   USC libraries will allow for higher density, though at reduced capacity compared to pre-pandemic levels.

Class instruction will remain online for the spring, though some exceptions may be made for coursework that requires students to access labs and studios. Student housing remains by exception only, and indoor dining and the fitness centers will not reopen for the time being.

If conditions continue to improve, we expect to take the following steps towards reopening:

-   Resumption of some in-person courses in the Summer II session (June 30 – August 10) following a mostly remote Summer I session (May 19 – June 29).

-   Undergraduates will be able to work in laboratories, taking into account all appropriate physical distancing and safety protocols. This includes summer programs for non-USC undergraduates.

Undergraduate students who enrolled full-time in Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 and earned fewer than 30 graded units over the course of the academic year may apply for a summer Academic Progress Scholarship. Students who meet the eligibility criteria will be approved for either one or two degree-applicable online courses. The application period opens on April 1. More information is available here.

Looking ahead to fall, we plan to resume a normal range of campus activities, though with some measures to reduce density where needed. Overall, we expect primarily in-person classes.

Undergraduate Student Pass/No Pass FAQs

Yes, the university has extended the deadline to elect Pass/No Pass grades to to Spring 2021. You can change your course grade option on Web Registration in the myCourseBin screen.

Yes, the university has extended the withdrawal deadline to April 30, 2021 for the Spring semester.

You can change your course grade option on Web Registration in the myCourseBin screen.  The deadline to make changes is April 30, 2021.

Courses taken for Pass/No Pass during Spring and Summer 2021 will count towards all major, minor, and university graduation requirements for all undergraduate students. This exception is only applicable to Spring and Summer 2021 courses.  

USC will also allow current undergraduates to take up to 32 units of Pass/No Pass course work for the duration of their undergraduate degree.  For students pursuing a second bachelor’s degree or a Bachelor of Architecture degree, up to 40 units of Pass/No Pass are permitted.

If your STARS report shows you are close to reaching or have already reached 32 units of Pass/No Pass, you should not elect Pass/No Pass for any courses in the current semester that you need to count toward graduation requirements. 

USC recently increased the number of Pass/No Pass units students can take from 24 to 32 to accommodate the ongoing impact of the COVID19 pandemic.  Under this updated policy, you should not exceed 32 units of P/NP courses that you need to count toward degree requirements.  Consult your advisor if you need clarification on this recent P/NP policy update. 

No, you cannot change grade options for prior semesters.  You can use the additional Pass/No Pass units for courses in Spring 2021 or future semesters until you complete your undergraduate degree.   

No, this is not a permanent change in policy.  The increase in Pass/No Pass units applies only to current USC undergraduate students with an active undergraduate degree program. 

After grading final examinations, faculty members will grade you according to the grade option you selected in Web Registration for each course. For any classes for which you select the Pass/No Pass option, a final grade of C- or above will be reflected on your record as a Pass.

Courses taken Pass/No Pass will still count towards pace of progression and maximum time frame for Satisfactory Academic Progress. Grades of Pass/No Pass will not impact GPA; however, a No Pass grade can negatively impact pace of progression. Please review the Satisfactory Academic Progress policy for more details at https://financialaid.usc.edu/docs/SAP_undergraduate.pdf

You may want to consult with your advisor or opt to keep the Letter grade option for your courses.

The Pass/No Pass grade is not counted in the grade point average nor used in the determination of honors.

Maybe.  If your graduate program is allowing P/NP grades, you can elect P/NP for the courses on your approved course plan.  If your program has not approved P/NP, you should take your courses for Letter grade.

It is important that you contact your home institution to determine if and/or how courses graded on a Pass/No Pass basis can count toward your course of study at your home institution.  If you are a visiting student and need to change your grade option, you can contact onestop@usc.edu.

The VA only pays for degree applicable courses.  Courses taken for Pass/No Pass during Spring 2021 will count towards all major, minor, and university graduation requirements for all undergraduate students.

Graduate Student Pass/No Pass FAQs

Graduate students will receive instructions directly from their school dean indicating whether any Spring courses can be taken for the Pass/No Pass grade option.

You can change your course grade option on Web Registration in the myCourseBin screen. The deadline to select the Pass/No Pass option is the last day of classes for the course in question.

Courses taken Pass/No Pass will still count towards pace of progression and maximum time frame for Satisfactory Academic Progress. Grades of Pass/No Pass will not impact GPA; however, a No Pass grade can negatively impact pace of progression. Please review the Satisfactory Academic Progress policy for more details at https://financialaid.usc.edu/graduates/continuing/documents/FA_GRADSAP_UG.pdf

The Pass/No Pass grade is not counted in the grade point average nor used in the determination of honors.

The VA only pays for degree applicable courses.  If your program of study approves the Pass/No Pass option and grants credit toward degree completion, the VA will continue to pay for the course.

Schedule of Classes

USC's courses for Spring semester are available on Web Registration.

You should try to find an alternative class to avoid the time conflict. If it is absolutely necessary that you take the two classes that conflict, you can request approval from the professors teaching the courses to register with a time conflict. You can find the form for 'Approval to Register with a Time Conflict' on our forms page.

If you would like to register for a class that is full, you may request approval from your advisor (if the class is part of your major) or from the department offering the class. If the class is in the Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences, please contact the professor teaching the class.

International Students

International students can view additional guidance related to visas, immigration status, travel and more in the FAQs for International Students.

Please visit the International Students FAQs for guidance on various scenarios if the fall 2020 DHS guidance is extended for spring 2021.

For the complete guidance for Spring 2021 planning, employment and travel for international students, visit https://ois.usc.edu/spring-2021-semester-planning-for-international-students/

On July 24, 2020, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) clarified that for the fall 2020 semester, F-1 students should abide by the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) guidance originally issued in March 2020. This guidance allows distance learning in excess of regulatory limits due to the public health emergency generated by COVID-19.

Continuing students in the United States or abroad can take classes from either location. As long as you enroll in a full course load and maintain your immigration status, USC will continue to keep your Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) record in active status.  

Continuing students who are currently outside the United States but would like to return to the United States remain eligible to do so as long as they have a valid visa, an I-20 endorsed for travel and all other documents listed on the travel section of USC's Office of International Services website. However, given the continuing public health crisis in Los Angeles and the uncertain guidance from state and local authorities, the university is not recommending that students travel back to campus at this time.

Students do not need a replacement I-20 with special language about the mode of instruction offered by USC.

Newly admitted students who are already in the United States (undergraduate transfer students or new graduate students coming directly from another degree program at USC) can remain in the country and maintain F-1 status while completing a full course load online this fall. The USC Office of Admission I-20 processing team will assist these students. Please email usci20@usc.edu if you have not already received your USC transfer I-20.

Students must complete Passport Verification (PPV) and enroll in a full course load for fall 2020. You are permitted to take online classes while in the United States and can study in F-1 status since your Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) record will be activated after PPV. To avoid complications at the port of entry, do not depart the United States until your SEVIS record has been activated. View the PPV instructions.

New students, transfer students, students returning from a Leave of Absence (LOA), students traveling to reinstate status, and all other students with an initial attendance or transfer pending I-20 who are currently outside the United States are not eligible to enter the United States and enroll in 100% online classes.

These students have two options for the fall 2020 semester:

  • Begin your studies from abroad as a non-F-1 student. New and transfer students should email the USC Office of Admission I-20 processing team at usci20@usc.edu to obtain a new I-20 for the spring 2021 semester. All other students with an initial attendance I-20 should email USC's Office of International Services at ois@usc.edu to obtain a new I-20 for the spring 2021 semester.
  • Contact your admissions or academic advisor to inquire about the possibility of postponing your studies to a future semester.

Students can take their classes online for the fall semester. We cannot predict how things will progress in the coming months, although we hope that normal operations will resume in January and that all USC students will be able to return to campus at that time. New students will need an updated I-20, and continuing students should refer to the travel section of USC’s Office of International Services website. 

To maintain active F-1 status, continuing students and new students currently in the United States are required to maintain a full course load during this temporary transition to alternative instructional methods. Continuing students outside the United States must maintain a full course load if they wish to retain an active Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) record.

There is no immigration enrollment requirement for new students outside the United States. However, students should confirm with their academic advisor regarding the minimum course enrollment requirement for their program.

To maintain your SEVIS record, you should not fall below the full course requirement unless you have been permitted to do so either through a  Reduced Course Load (RCL)  or  Leave of Absence (LOA)  approval from your academic advisor and USC’s Office of International Services.

Note: No extra academic difficulty RCLs are available due to COVID-19, but a final semester RCL is still possible.

Below are the full-time unit requirements:

  • Undergraduate students: 12 units
  • Master’s students: 8 units
  • Doctoral students: 6 units

Just like we did last spring, professors will record classes and make them available to students to watch whenever it is convenient for them. 

If a student who has accepted a multi-year funding offer cannot enroll in the fall 2021 due to visa or COVID-19 issues, the Graduate School will hold the multi-year funding offer for this specific student for use beginning in either spring 2022 or fall 2022.

Students should inform their department of their plans by the following deadlines:

  • July 16, 2021: Not planning to enter in fall 2021
  • 15, 2021: Planning to enter in spring 2022
  • April 15, 2022: Planning to enter in fall 2022

 

The deadlines are designed to be late enough for incoming PhD students to be able to assess their own situations and respond to changing global conditions, but early enough for principal investigators (PIs) to plan for lab staffing and assign research assistantships, for schools and programs to assign teaching assistantships, and for the students’ stipend checks to be processed on time. Exceptions will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

Graduate deans will supply lists of students deferring their enrollment and submit them to the Graduate School and Office of Graduate Admissions. The students will then be readmitted to the new term, and the I-20s of international students will be issued to reflect their new start and end dates.

Currently enrolled USC PhD students may face COVID-19-related challenges that prevent their return to campus. To address this situation, the university created the option of a COVID-19-related pause for PhD students. With the approval of the program and school dean, currently enrolled PhD students have the option of pausing their studies in fall 2021 and then resuming them in either spring 2022 or fall 2022.

The pause is unfunded and similar to a leave of absence, but it comes with safeguards for both the student and the program in the form of an academic plan outlining specific expectations for the resumption of the student’s studies, funding and progress toward the degree. The duration of the pause does not count against the student’s progress toward the degree.

PhD students planning to use the COVID-19-related pause must develop an academic plan with their faculty advisor and obtain the signature of the advisor and school dean or dean’s designee indicating approval. The following dates are recommended as deadlines, but there is some room for flexibility.

The deadlines are designed to be late enough for students to be able to assess their own situations and respond to changing global conditions, but early enough for principal investigators (PIs) to plan for lab staffing and assign research assistantships, for schools and programs to assign teaching assistantships, and for the students’ stipend checks to be processed on time. In collaboration with the school dean, the PhD program will handle any exceptions on a case-by-case basis.

  • July 16, 2021: Confirm the pause option for fall 2021 and plan to resume studies in spring 2022 or fall 2022.
  • Oct. 15, 2021: Confirm a return for spring 2022 or confirm the pause option for spring 2022 and plan to resume studies in fall 2022.
  • April 15, 2022: Confirm a plan to resume studies in fall 2022.

The student, student’s home program and school dean’s office will keep a record of the COVID-19-related pause.

Students who are ill and undergoing treatment for COVID-19 or any serious illness should consider the possible advantage of a voluntary health leave.

International students should consult with USC's Office of International Services before making plans for any type of leave. Students who select the pause option must live outside of the United States during the semester(s) they are not enrolled due to U.S. immigration regulations.

USC will be able to process fellowship stipends for both incoming and continuing PhD students who are located in or outside the United States and have at least a semester of fellowship available in their multi-year funding offer. We will process stipends for continuing students per the standard protocol, and we will provide details soon regarding processing stipends for incoming students who are outside the United States.

Individual schools will evaluate the academic value of the remote coursework or research opportunity available to students (both domestic and international) who are not returning to campus in the fall. If a school deems the academic value of the coursework or research opportunity to be insufficient, it will advise students to defer using the option of the pause for continuing students, or the option of the multi-year funding offer deferral for incoming students. (see FAQs above)

We are still finalizing the options for teaching assistantships and research assistantships and will share additional information soon.

Graduate students should check with the department or school to which they were admitted.

Undergraduate students could be granted deferrals in specific cases relating to medical issues, religious obligations, required military/national service and, in the case of international students who will attend classes online from another country, the inability to construct a reasonable online course schedule that is compatible with their home time zone. However, deferral requests for other reasons will generally not be granted.

New students who have committed to enroll at USC but fail to do so will forfeit their spot in the entering class and will need to reapply (with no guarantee of admission) should they wish to attend the university in a future term.

New students living outside the United States who plan to complete their USC coursework online should work with their academic advisor to construct a course schedule that is compatible with their home time zone. If a reasonable schedule is not feasible, students may request a deferral to a future term.

In such cases, USC’s academic advisors will notify the Office of Admission, and staff will then send a deferral form to the student. Once the student completes and submits this form, the Office of Admission will follow up with further information.

Graduate Students

Should you have finished your degree requirements but not have been able to finish the final details, the Graduate School can supply you with a Confirmation Letter certifying that your work toward your degree is finished and that only internal university processing remains if you have a job or postdoc offer – or an Optional Practical Training (OPT) or visa issue that requires a completed PhD – and you have uploaded your dissertation or thesis to Thesis Center, but the rest of the process is not yet completed.

Once the final edited version of the thesis or dissertation has been uploaded to Thesis Center, the Office of the Registrar will be notified and the degree will be posted on the student’s transcript, assuming all other degree requirements have been satisfied.

The university has three official conferral dates – one in the spring, one in the summer and one in the fall – but the degree typically appears on the transcript earlier when the process described above is completed. Students may request transcripts for verification for jobs, postdocs, etc.

We realize that travel critical to your work will likely be delayed or canceled. Please discuss these research delays with your advisor.

Our Graduate Student Support Working Group was formed in conjunction with the Academic Senate and includes student representation. The group is led by Kelly Goulis, Senior Associate Dean – Viterbi Admission and Student Engagement, and meets frequently to discuss and implement solutions to issues critical to graduate students. If you would like to share an issue or a concern for the group to consider, please email vpgp@usc.edu.

Graduate students must adhere to the university's physical distancing and personal protective equipment (PPE) requirements. In shared spaces such as graduate student offices, instructors (including teaching assistants) should stringently observe the practice of staggering scheduled office hours, which already exists in many cases for practical reasons.

Doctoral Students

Remote participation in a dissertation or thesis defense is always an option for a limited number of committee members. With the approval of the student, committee chair, and the dean of the school, the defense can be conducted entirely through Zoom or other videoconferencing tools. The standard rules apply to the defense. This means that all committee members must be part of the same defense “meeting,” whether they are on campus or remote.

Dissertation checklists and manuscripts are submitted electronically via Thesis Center and are not affected by the location of the student.

General Questions

After careful consideration, the USC Board of Trustees has approved a 2 percent tuition increase for the 2021-2022 academic year, the lowest year-over-year increment since 1967 and keeping in line with inflation. Our teams have worked tirelessly to chart a path that keeps tuition as stable as possible, while allowing the university to operate safely in the midst of a pandemic and ensure its financial aid pool continues to be robust. 

Now that we are returning to campus, student fees will return to pre-COVID levels with an increase in the student fee to support new campus health programs. You may recall that all student fees had been consolidated and reduced to $100 during each of the past two semesters.

For the 2021-22 academic year, mandatory fees for undergraduates will be $499 per semester and $475 per semester for graduate students. This represents a $60 increase in our student health fee over Spring 2020 with other fees remaining at the same level.  The increase supports expanded comprehensive health programs, including improving quality of care and patient access in clinical operations; more than doubling the number of mental health providers; increasing programs in sexual assault prevention and survivor care, substance abuse education, and other specialized programs.

USC launched a new online student hub to help students maximize their virtual student experience. The Experience portal is the first step in bringing all of the different facets of college life into a single resource to help enhance your experience across academics, community, wellness, arts and culture, service and career.

The initial version includes integrated event calendars, so you can see all of the online events in a single feed. Soon, many of those events will be directly accessible from within the portal to create a virtual hub for events, including interaction with your friends and fellow students.

The portal also provides access to your class schedule and links to key resources to give you a single starting point that serves as a gateway to other sites. In time, many of those resources will be more deeply integrated to provide a seamless experience.

Please view the latest updates from USC's Office of Research in addition to the Research FAQs.

Under the red-tier status (as of March 2021), USC libraries will allow for higher density, though at reduced capacity compared to pre-pandemic levels.

We realize that attending classes online and completing coursework remotely requires access to technology that not all students possess. If you need resources to successfully participate in your classes, such as a laptop or internet hotspot, you may be eligible for the university’s equipment rental program. To apply, please submit an application.

We are offering a new scholarship opportunity for this year only. Students will be able to apply for a scholarship to provide for up to two free online classes in the 2021 summer session. This is designed to help ensure academic progress. More details on this offering will follow.
