Step 1: Respond to your offer


After receiving your letter of offer, you must respond via USC Central as soon as possible. If you do not respond before the start of the study period in which you were made an offer, your offer may lapse. Follow the instructions below to accept, defer, or decline.

USC Central is the online self-service system you use to manage your enrolment and personal details. This includes responding to your offer, planning your timetable, enrolling in your classes, updating your personal information and viewing your financial details, grades and exam timetables.

Click on one of the response options below for instructions:

  • Accept your offer
  • Defer your offer
  • Decline your offer
  • Change your response

Change your password

For security reasons, it is important to change your initial password that was provided in your letter of offer to a new password of your choice.

  1. Go to Blackboard (do not login)
  2. Select Change your Password. You must have supplied your mobile phone number in USC Central to use this service.

Alternatively, if you are on a university managed computer you can change your password by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del and following the prompts.

If you experience problems while completing your password change contact the IT Help Desk.
