In certain circumstances students may wish to submit information about their special financial circumstances, or an appeal to request an adjustment to their financial aid eligibility. Please review the list on the left for more details. Include a written request and copies of appropriate supporting documentation, as indicated. Write your USC ID number on the first page of each document. You will be contacted if additional documentation is required.

Re-evaluation of your financial aid eligibility is subject to federal, state and university regulations, and is based on:

  • Availability of funds;
  • Timeliness of your original application for financial aid; and
  • Timeliness of your appeal and the nature of the change in circumstances.


Submit your letter and documentation to the Financial Aid Office.  Please visit, for document submission instructions.
