Financial Aid Deadlines and Instructions/Paying for USC
Interested in financial aid? If yes, you should apply for financial aid soon after you apply for admission.
Although we do not accept applications for spring admission, we do consider all fall applicants for a place in the class entering in the spring semester, which begins in January. Transfer students admitted to the spring semester may be asked to complete additional course work before enrolling.
When will you hear from us?
All first-year applicants who submitted a complete application by the deadline will be mailed an admission decision on March 26th. Decisions will be available online via USConnect beginning March 29th at noon PT. All transfer applicants who submitted a complete application by the deadline will be mailed an admission decision or a request for spring semester grades by June 3rd. USC does not have an early decision program. Only notification from the Office of Admission constitutes an offer of admission.
