Amanda Bynes wants to attend the University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles.

The 'Easy A' star, who is trying to get her life back on track after being involuntarily committed to a psychiatric hospital for the second time in October, took a tour of the campus because she wants to transfer there from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) in San Diego, California.

The 27-year-old troubled starlet wrote on Twitter: ''I took a USC campus tour yesterday it was sick! I plan on transferring from FIDM. The campus is sick!''

An eyewitness said the actress kept a low-profile and was dressed ''super casually'' during her visit to the university on Tuesday (16.12.14).

The insider told E! News: ''She was on a tour, came in and she was just looking around the cafeteria. She was on a cart tour. She was dressed super casually, but she had her big sunglasses on. She was with just a tour guide and an assistant-type of person. I could tell she was really low key about it all.

''It was hard to tell if she was happy/excited to be there because of the sunglasses, she was covering the side of her face at a point but nothing too dramatic.''

Amanda was rumoured to have dropped out of FIDM earlier this year and sources previously claimed she wanted to transfer to an educational facility in New York City.
