Understanding Financial Aid at USC

USC administers one of the largest financial aid programs in the United States, with many options available for undergraduates and those with special circumstances.

The following pages will guide you through the process of determining your budget, reviewing and understanding the types of awards in your Financial Aid Summary and obtaining the funds included in your summary. We encourage you and your family to review your Financial Aid Summary carefully, then decide which options make the most sense for your financial situation.
