Does a waitlist USC SCA fall decision mean a guaranteed place in spring?

Hello,

I received a waitlists decision for USC SCA in the fall semester, and during the email, they phrased the sentences like this:
'If we are unable to admit you off of the waitlist for the fall 2021 semester, we will offer you admission to our spring 2022 class.'

Does that mean a place in the spring semester is guaranteed? Or do I still need to attend interviews and such by the time?
If that is the case and I prefer attending the spring semester, is it okay to send an email asking them? Have anyone come across a similar situation before?

Sorry for loads of questions, and many thanks for helping!
