Supporting our students.
USC administers one of the largest financial aid programs in the United States, with a long tradition of meeting the USC-determined financial need of applicants who meet all eligibility requirements and deadlines. More than two-thirds of USC undergraduates receive some form of financial aid, including merit scholarships, need-based grants, Federal Work-Study and loans.
USC offers several scholarships and grants to help undergraduate students pay for their education. These funds come from a variety of university, federal, state and private sources but unlike loans, they do not have to be repaid.
Generally, scholarships are reserved for students with special qualifications, such as academic, athletic or artistic talent. Awards are also available for students who are interested in particular fields of study, are members of underrepresented groups or live in certain areas of the country.
USC Iovine and Young Academy students are eligible for all USC administered financial aid and merit scholarships.
