Letter from USC Interim President Wanda M. Austin regarding college admissions investigation

March 12, 2019

Dear USC Community,

I want to inform you of an ongoing wide-ranging criminal investigation involving universities nationwide, including USC. The government has made a public announcement and disseminated the charging documents. The federal government has alleged that USC is a victim in a scheme perpetrated against the university by a long-time Athletics Department employee, one current coach and three former coaching staff, who were allegedly involved in a college admissions scheme and have been charged by the government on multiple charges.

At this time, we have no reason to believe that Admissions employees or senior administrators were aware of the scheme or took part in any wrongdoing—and we believe the government concurs in that assessment. The government has repeatedly informed us that it views USC as a victim and that these employees purposefully deceived USC.

We have planned significant remedial efforts. We will take all appropriate employment actions. We will review admissions decisions. We are identifying all funds received that may be connected to the government’s allegations. And we will be implementing significant process and training enhancements to prevent anything like this from ever happening again.

It is immensely disappointing that individuals would abuse their position at the university in this way.

As our work on culture and values continues, we must take the appropriate action when we become aware of behavior that is contrary to our values. I appreciate the efforts of the staff who diligently responded to the government’s investigation, and for the broad commitment of our community to address problems as we learn of them.

We will continue to cooperate fully with all law enforcement and regulatory investigations.

Any media calls can be referred to the USC Media Line 213-740-2215.

Dr. Wanda M. Austin

President

I don't know much about how college admissions offices operate. I would assume that the admissions office touches every single file and that students who are admitted despite being outliers on the lower end of the grades/test scores spectrum are given even more attention.

of course the admissions office touches every single file. apparently the athletic dept has "autoadmit" cards to use, for her to say usc wasn't involved when the women's AD was accepting the bribes is a farce.

Right. Admissions gives the athletic dept a certain number of slots and as long as those kids meet basic pre-defined GPA/SAT lower limits and don't have any serious red flags, they're admitted.

not sure if the adcoms are at fault for not verifying that these kids are fraud athletes. i think they're entitled to take the coach's word for it that the crew recruit actually plays crew.

but for the nig potus to say that usc is the victim when a high level admin (the women's AD) was the ringleader in this is retarded. that's like saying usc was the victim bc the rapey doc molested ppl.

I can almost give a school like USC or UT a pass, because they are dealing with thousands of files. There is now way that the admissions office at a place like Harvard/Yale/Stanford can play dumb. They admit like 1200 kids per year. Each accepted student file must end up being heavily worked - how does some chick who has middling credentials skate right in by being a fake soccer recruit? Impossible.

I don't think they are doing intense background checks on these people anywhere, even Harvard. They read the files and make a decision.

I never dealt with any of those schools but always thought that the admissions process was pretty intense - multiple visits, interviews, etc.

Not flame at all - never had any idea what went on at schools like Harvard/Yale. I always assumed that you went through the ringer to get accepted.

" We are identifying all funds received that may be connected to the government’s allegations."

lol, and then what do you plan to do after you identify the funds? Keep them if at all possible, right?
