Scholarships & Financial Aid
USC administers more than a dozen prestigious scholarship programs ranging up to full-tuition waivers. Unlike loans, scholarships do not have to be repaid. They are awarded based on academic excellence, leadership, service, talent, and the criteria detailed below.
Recipients must enroll full time (at least 12 units each semester) and maintain good academic standing. If an interview is required, candidates will be contacted. Selection for an interview does not imply the awarding of a scholarship or admission to USC. Meeting application requirements and minimum criteria does not guarantee that you will be invited for a scholarship interview or receive a particular scholarship. Recipients of our scholarships often exceed the minimum criteria.
