Financial Aid

Financial aid must be applied for through the University or directly from outside funding sources, rather than through the PA program. The program has no direct involvement in the granting of any financial aid.

General information and application forms for financial aid and financing a USC education are available at:

Financial aid applicants who meet all the deadlines will be considered for the Federal Stafford Loan and Federal GradPlus Loan. Additionally, there is the USC Tuition Payment Plan. United States government guidelines preclude international students from receiving federal financial assistance through the USC Financial Aid Office. However, international students are eligible and may apply for private financing programs.
