Event description

Description

Are you a high school junior, high school senior, or prospective transfer applicant for our BFA program? Join us for the Discover USC Open House on Saturday, November 16!

This all-day, university-wide event includes admission and financial aid presentations, campus tours and an academic and student life interest fair. USC Kaufman will offer master classes to students and a Q&A with parents of current students for families. Exciting demos with faculty, tours of the Glorya Kaufman International Dance Center, opportunities to connect with current BFA students and information sessions led by the school’s Assistant Dean of Admission are open to both students and their families.

While not a formal part of this program, there will be performances at 3pm and 7:30pm. Please note that a separate reservation is required for the performances. You can reserve free tickets on our website in early November.

Please find the full schedule below with important details.
