- ACTIVITY RESTRICTIONS
An activity restriction is a "hold" a University of Southern California office places on your record. An activity restriction can prevent your registration. Please note that certain restrictions (e.g., Academic Review, Structured Curriculum, etc.) require clearance every time you change your program.
- ACADEMIC ELIGIBILITY
Acceptance of registration does not ensure enrollment qualifications or admission at the commencement of the semester. A student must obtain or maintain academic eligibility in accordance with the requirements of the University, School, or Department in which the student enrolls. Academic disqualification may result in revocation of registration, even though classes are in progress. In the event of such revocation of registration, the student receives 100% of any tuition paid for that semester. The refund process initiates in the Academic Review Department of the Office of Academic Records & Registrar.
- ACADEMIC INTEGRITY
`I acknowledge that it is my responsibility to be aware of and observe academic integrity standards for students at USC. I understand that those standards are published in the Governance Section of SCampus, and that standards for specific assignments may be published in course syllabi.'
`I agree that as a member of the university community, I share responsibility for maintaining an environment of academic integrity.'
- INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS IN F-1
Undergraduate students must take a minimum of 12 units each semester to comply with immigration regulations; graduate students must enroll in a minimum of 8 units. Dropping below these minimum units without authorization violates your student status. Contact the Office for International Student Services, Student Union 300 for further information.
- FINANCIAL OBLIGATION
Request and completion of registration constitutes a legal financial obligation for which you are liable in the event you do not follow the proper procedures to change or cancel enrollment with the Registration Department. You are responsible for reading and understanding the current Drop/Refund policy of the university as it appears in the current Schedule of Classes. Permission to cancel enrollment does not constitute, nor shall it be construed as, a waiver by USC of your financial obligation. You are responsible for all outstanding debts and contracts with the university. The university reserves the right to assess interest or financial charges on any indebtedness. Furthermore, a student must not have any delinquent financial obligations to USC at the time classes begin, or current registration may be revoked.
- TUITION REFUND INSURANCE
Optional insurance is available through A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. It provides full coverage for tuition and fees for students who suffer serious illness or accident that makes it necessary for them to leave the university before the semester ends. If you must leave the university for medical reasons, and you did not buy this insurance, you do not qualify for a refund. Further information please visit A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. Applications are available from the Cashier's Office and Registration and Records.
- VOTER REGISTRATION INFORMATION
Voter registration and forms can be obtained from the USC homepage.
- LATE FEES
To avoid late fees for Fall 2004, you must have your tuition, fees, housing, dining, and all other charges paid or deferred by August 20, 2004. Students who fail to register and settle their accounts will be assessed late fees in accordance with the following schedule:
- August 21 - 27: $100
- August 28 - September 3: $200
