Grads on the Horseshoe

Accelerated Study Plans

These accelerated study plans help students graduate in less time through a structured program of summer and winter sessions, online courses and individual advising. 

Graduate In Less Time

Our accelerated study plans allow you to complete a traditional bachelor's or graduate degree in less time.

Getting Into an Accelerated Study Plan
After you enroll at USC, you can enter into an accelerated study plan agreement with the university. That will allow you to complete your required coursework in less time.

Who To Contact
Each program has an assigned contact. See the individual degree programs below for your contact's name and email address.

Individual Advising
You will be assigned an adviser in your college or school who can help you make sure you're taking full advantage of fall, spring, summer and winter courses to graduate in your time frame.
