The USC Catalogue is published online annually in June. There is no longer a print version though a print-friendly capability is offered. Once the Catalogue is published, changes can only be made to correct inaccuracies. From October to May, the Catalogue Office is in production on the next year's Catalogue, known as the "Preview" or "Production" Catalogue. The Catalogue Office works in conjunction with the Curriculum Coordination Office to update curricular information in the upcoming Catalogue during the production months. For information, contact the Catalogue Office at


The USC Catalogue is published by the Office of the Registrar, Catalogue Office, (213) 740-1207. The catalogue is published online in June 2017 as the document of authority for the following academic year.
