Financial Aid – Completing the Process

By March 28, 2011No Comments

We’ve mentioned financial aid in a few posts earlier (Your Next Steps)…. but paying for college can be an intimidating process – and we want to help you understand this process as best as possible.

Hit the jump for a webinar on USC Financial Aid as long as the steps to complete the paperwork…

First things first – check out this webinar on USC Financial Aid.  Its a little over 15 minutes long, and it covers a ton of information including the USC Financial Aid philosophy, types of financial aid, determining your financial aid eligibility, and how to apply.

The Financial Aid Application Process

Check out all the steps regarding how to apply for financial aid.  Links to completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the CSS PROFILE and more will get you on the right track.

If you have already completed most, if not all, of the financial aid steps – login to MY FINANCIAL AID to check whether our financial aid office is missing anything, and/or upload whatever they may need from you.

All this said – it can be a confusing process.  Please call the financial aid office directly (213-740-1111) or call us (213-740-4530).  Even better – visit us at one of our admitted student programs, either on-campus or at a reception near you.  Financial Aid counselors will be available at all of the programs!
