Study in one of the world’s most dynamic global cities, with students from over 100 different nations.
Richmond University is pleased to be able to offer the Trojan Transfer Plan (TTP) Freshman Year in London program, in partnership with the University of Southern California (USC).
Transferring to USC
Admission to USC requires a high level of success, in courses likely to be more rigorous than you have experienced in high school. Successfully completing this plan demands hard work and focus, and not all will be successful. If you are able to complete the following requirements during your year at Richmond in the TTP-Freshman Year in London program, USC Admission states with a high degree of confidence that you are likely to be admitted as a transfer student:
- Complete 30 transferable semester units, earning A’s and B’s.
- Earn a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.30 in USC-transferable courses, with no individual grade below C (2.0). You might notice that the Trojan Transfer Plan typically requires a 3.6 GPA or higher; USC grants a modest dispensation on the GPA expectation given the experiential benefits of living and studying abroad.
- Complete a year long course in English composition.
- Complete Intermediate Algebra (if you didn’t complete Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II with C’s or better in every semester in high school).
- Take courses in areas of general education (at least two courses), foreign language (if needed for your major), and any lower division courses needed for your intended major.
Your Richmond academic advisor will be familiar with the conditions of your intended transfer to USC through the TTP-Freshman Year in London program.
