Visiting USC Roski


All potential Roski applicants are encouraged to schedule a video conference with a Roski School admission counselor to learn more about the art programs and the unique opportunities at USC. Roski virtual visits can be scheduled by clicking here. Sessions are held on most Wednesdays at 3pm (PST). 

In the interim, please access our virtual tour of the Roski to see the art studios, facilities, exhibitions, events, and to get a sense of what it's like to be a student here.



For prospective and admitted students who are still hoping to learn more about our university, USC Admission is now hosting both in-person and virtual admission information sessions that include the opportunity to have questions answered by an admission representative and a current undergraduate student. You also have the option to explore a live guided photo tour of campus with a current undergraduate student. For details, please click here.

Please know that we do not use demonstrated interest in our application reviews. Whether or not you are able to visit campus, it will not impact any future or current applications to USC.

Part of Discover USC Open House

Discover USC is a full-day program that provides prospective freshmen (high school seniors) and their families with an opportunity to tour the USC campus; visit with current students, faculty, and staff; and learn more about the university. The Roski School will host an information session in the morning, from 10 - 11:15am, and again in the afternoon, from 1:30 – 2:45pm. The Portfolio Forum will be from 3:00 - 4:30pm.

During the Roski Portfolio Forum, from 3 - 4:30pm, an admissions representative and studio faculty members from the Roski School will be available to offer guidance for portfolio submissions. Students should bring 3-5 easily portable pieces of artwork for critique, which may include drawing, painting, mixed media, photography, sculpture, ceramics, and/or graphic design. We will be unable to critique time-based or interactive digital work at Portfolio Forum. 

To reserve your spot for the Portfolio Forum, please RSVP here.

Due to space constrictions, Portfolio Forum is limited to student applicants only. From 3-4:30 pm, family and friends are welcome to participate in other campus activities scheduled for that day.
