Evaluations generally take 10-15 business days, but may take up to 90 business days during busy periods. Once the petition is submitted, you will receive an email with current evaluation estimate.
If your petition is put on "hold for more information," you will be notified of what additional documents are necessary. You are responsible for collecting the requested information. If necessary, please contact your former instructor or the institution where you took the course.
Petitions that are "put on hold" will be held for only one semester. . USC policy requires that review is completed within one semester of the student starting at USC (or of USC receiving the transcript, for summer coursework taken after you start at USC). Please be sure to provide your supporting documentation before the start of the next semester. Please notify our office to make arrangements if you need more time to gather supporting documents. After a semester with no response from the student, the petition will be administratively withdrawn and no further actions will be taken
You will be notified by USC email as soon as a decision has been made on your petition.
