"The most important trip you may take in life is meeting people halfway."

~ Henry Boye

Now is the greatest time to be a USC student. 125 year old university, USC is now one of the most actively recognized professional schools in the United States. It consists of more than 35,000 students and numerous successful alumni who are scattered all around the world. With Trojans in every industry and area of academics, it is easier to meet your self-set goal of success.

For all previous years, the university's acceptance standards have risen greatly and now surpass many outstanding schools in nation. We greatly praise your exceptional achievement and elegant decision for joining USC.


Fortunately, USC Iranian Graduate Students Association is one of the most active Iranian communities in the United States. For new Iranian students we have a special program in order to welcoming them and easing the impact of their relocation. Within the first couple of weeks of upcoming semester, we will offer some programs to dispel the fear and confusion many new students might suffer. To name some, we are going to pick up students, who do not have any relative or friends in Los Angeles, from LAX airport. Also we are trying to help you with your settling process via presenting information sessions, campus orientation, etc. IGSA Newcomers Chapter assures you that you have friends here at USC who care about you and will try to fulfill your needs once you are here.


If you would like to take advantage of our programs, please contact us at igsa@usc.edu. We also recommend you to register as a new member of IGSA and join IGSA mailing list.


We are eagerly looking forward to having you here at USC.
