Manage Your Finances

Students who have not yet applied for financial aid may still do so, even if the priority deadlines have passed. For more information, please visit the USC Financial Aid website:

Receiving Your Financial Aid

If you applied for financial aid, you’ll be notified via email of your financial aid summary, which will detail your eligibility for need-based financial aid. You’ll also be notified by email if additional information is required to determine your eligibility. We encourage you to track your status in your USC Financial Aid Summary and Tasks (FAST) portal to ensure that all required information has been received.

Outside Scholarships or Awards

If you receive scholarships or other awards from organizations outside of USC, be sure to notify the Financial Aid Office as soon as possible. Your external scholarship will need to be coordinated with any existing financial aid so that the total funds you receive do not exceed your cost of attendance.

Interactive Planning Worksheet

This tool will help you plan for each semester’s expenses and estimate how much you may need to pay out of pocket, once your financial aid funds (scholarship, grants and loans) have been applied to your student account. The Planning Worksheet can be accessed through FAST portal.

International Students

International students may receive USC or outside scholarships to help fund their studies. Scholarship funds will be applied to student accounts according to the terms set by the awarding agency. For more information, visit the Financial Aid International Student page on the Financial Aid website.

Tuition and Fees

Tuition, fees and other charges for each semester are due in full by the Friday before the first day of classes. You can check your billing account by logging in to and clicking on “Pay My Bill.” More information about tuition, fees and deadlines is available through Student Financial Services.

Payment Plans

USC offers payment and prepayment plans to help manage your university expenses. Visit Student Financial Services for more information.
