USC School of Dramatic Arts Updates


In response to COVID-19 and in the interest of public health and safety, the University of Southern California announced that all classes will be held online for the rest of the Spring 2020 semester.


Most university buildings, including all SDA buildings are closed until further notice. All staff are working remotely through at least April 14, 2020.


The Office of Admissions & Student Services in DRC 104 is closed physically, but we are open virtually and operating via online platforms with staff working remotely. For more information, please visit the SDA Student Portal.


School leadership has made the decision to cancel the remainder of our production season.

In addition, all Independent Student Productions (ISP) have been cancelled.


At this time, we are doing all that we can to examine each event and explore the possibility of relocating these to online platforms, when possible. Specific details related to a possible shift in format or cancellation will be sent to all confirmed registrants.
