Financial Aid Office
Welcome to USC Financial Aid
USC is need-blind in its admission process, which means that a student’s ability to pay or interest in financial aid has no bearing on admission decisions.
You might be surprised to learn who receives financial aid at USC
Approximately two-thirds of our students receive some form of financial aid.
