Starting this Fall 2024 the CS Application Area Requirement, and the CS and CIS Liberal Arts Requirements are being replaced by a more relaxed "Electives" requirement. Any USC course can be used to satisfy the new Electives requirement, including CSCE courses (check out CSCE 180: "Artificial Intelligence for All" this Fall) Also, the total number of credits required for a degree has been reduced for the majority of students. The set of required CSCE courses remains the same. See the new CS Major Requirements and CIS Major Requirements for details. 

It starts Fall 2024, so only applies to those graduating in December 2024 or later. You can switch to the new 2024 requirements if you want. Just ask your Advisor to do it. It will mean you have more freedom with your electives and will need fewer or the same number of credits to graduate.
