Hi Transfer Applicants! I know I’ve posted about this before – but I want to remind you again:
Applying for financial aid is NOT an admission requirement. However, if you are admitted to USC you’ll probably want to know if you can receive financial aid (financial aid can make USC an affordable option!). You don’t want to wait to hear back from USC to apply for financial aid. You should complete this process now.
If you are not sure what to do – your first best step may be to check out this webinar on USC Financial Aid. The webinar is only about 20 minutes, 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.
Applying for Financial Aid
If you haven’t applied for Financial Aid (FAFSA, CSS PROFILE, Tax Information, etc) – go to our Financial Aid website for the steps you need to complete, and need to complete soon!
Completing the Process (Getting Missing Info In) ASAP
If you believe you have completed the process – login to http://USConnect.usc.edu and check your status. If the Financial Aid Office has all of your information it is likely that your package has already been completed. If not, you can upload any missing information…. right there, online.
If USC is missing any information for you, I highly recommend uploading all information electronically via USConnect. Any documents mailed to the Financial Aid office may incur many days of processing before acted upon. Uploading via USConnect gets in right in your file.
We Can Help You With This Process
All this said – it can be a confusing process. Please call the financial aid office directly (213-740-4444)… or call us if you have a basic/general financial aid (213-740-4530).
