The USC Price School welcomes applications for the International Public Policy and Management Program from international professionals and U.S. professionals interested in working in an international setting. To be considered for admission, applicants must have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited educational institution and 3 or more years of work experience.
The IPPAM course of study begins in the summer semester (generally the third week of June). Applicants are encouraged to apply for the summer semester. In cases where sponsors and employers do not permit summer enrollment, applicants may apply for the fall semester.
Begin the application process early. The deadline for summer semester is March 15. The final deadline for fall semester is May 1 for international applicants and July 1 for domestic applicants. The earlier deadline for international applicants is to ensure adequate time for processing the requirements to obtain a student visa. Applicants should not wait until the final deadline, as the class may already be at capacity.
Applications are submitted online (both the application form and letters of recommendation). Official transcripts, and (for international students) a TOEFL or IELTS score should be submitted after completing the online application.
The following items are required to complete the application process.
Please note that we accept only e-transcripts submitted via the following methods:
If your school does not provide e-transcripts through one of these methods, you must submit a hard copy of your transcripts.
March 15 (for the summer term)
May 1 (international applicant final deadline for the fall term)
July 1 (domestic applicant final deadline for the fall term)
Online: Candidates may apply through USC’s Graduate Online Application System. The online system allows you to electronically submit the entire application — except for official transcripts and a copy of test scores, which should be sent directly to USC Price at the mailing address below.
