Next Steps for Financial Aid

Around this time of year we get a lot of questions regarding managing the cost of a USC education. Financial Aid often makes USC an affordable option and we strongly encourage each family to complete the Financial Aid process.

If you have not started the Financial Aid process:

Check out the How Financial Aid Works Video on USC Financial Aid website.  This video covers a ton of information including the USC Financial Aid philosophy, types of financial aid, determining your financial aid eligibility, and how to apply.

After watching the video head to our Financial Aid website for the steps you need to complete (keep in mind that these steps should be completed as soon as possible).

Apply for Financial Aid

If you have started the Financial Aid process:

If the Financial Aid Office has all of your information it is likely that your package has already been completed or will be shortly.

Check Your Status

If USC is missing any information for you

Uploading missing documents is the fastest way to get your document(s) processed.  Any documents mailed to the Financial Aid office may incur many days of processing before acted upon.
