OneCarolina keeps rolling along: USC financial aid goes live, joins admissions and registration

The financial aid portion of the OneCarolina project has gone live, signifying yet another major milestone for the initiative aimed at overhauling the way students, faculty, and staff connect with the University.

“We’re confident that this change to USC’s financial aid system is a positive one, both for our staff and our students,” said Senior Associate Director of Financial Aid Bob Godfrey.

The financial aid go-live comes only weeks after the registration portion of OneCarolina was brought online.

“We’re really pleased with the way things are shaping up,” said OneCarolina Project Director Bob Swab. “Within the last month, we’ve brought both registration and financial aid online. We have a lot of work left to do, but we’re happy with where we are right now.”

Students will be able to check the status of their federal FAFSA beginning March 1. They’ll do so using, a webpage that’s been established by OneCarolina to help guide students between the new system, Self Service Carolina (SSC), and VIP. Students will use SSC to manage their 2013-2014 financial aid awards and register for Fall 2013 classes. To do those same things for Summer I and Summer II 2013, they’ll need to use VIP.

All student systems are scheduled to be transferred over to SSC by the end of 2013.
