Good morning, Ms. Lee,
I am responding on behalf of the Office of the President for the University of Southern California.
I understand that you have contacted the office by telephone and email regarding a potential student. There is no student with the name you indicated registered with the University.
Even if there were such a student registered with USC, due to FERPA regulations, we would not discuss her/his status without her/his permission.
Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
Be well, Patrick
