COVID-19 Admission FAQ

At USD, we are committed to the health and safety of our current and prospective USD students, faculty, and staff. We recognize that the current COVID-19 situation greatly affects the college-search and decision-making processes for our prospective Toreros and their families. In light of this, we’ve created a list below which includes topics and questions that might relate to your journey as a prospective Torero. While we may not have all of the answers to your questions, we promise to walk with you through this process, helping as much as we can along the way, and informing you with any updates surrounding USD as they become available. 

As of May 7, 2020, USD President James T. Harris issued a statement regarding USD's six-point plan to reopen campus for the fall semester, including on-campus classes.
