More than 80 percent of Keck School medical students receive financial assistance. Scholarships, assistantships and fellowships are awarded to medical students based on academic performance and/or financial need.

USC Financial Aid is your partner in managing your investment in medical school.

Consider the value of your investment. Make lifestyle changes to support your becoming a student. Understand all financial aid application processes and deadlines.

Several low-interest, long-term federal, university and private loan programs are available to eligible students.

In addition, USC offers a short-term tuition payment plan and a prepayment plan. Because of the rigor of medical school, students are discouraged from accepting employment during the academic year.
