April 14th, 2016 in Uncategorized.

Students considering a Fall 2016 leave or withdrawal should speak with a USC staff member before the end of the semester.  It is important to discuss options and implications in the spring, and the best timeline for finalizing a decision and updating records before August 1.   In addition to the regular drop in hours offered in the second half of April, we will offer expanded drop in hours during the May study break and finals period.  Check back on May 1 for a listing of the expanded drop in times.
