Financial Aid

We recommend that you begin thinking about your financial aid needs and options during the initial admissions process to University of South Carolina.

It is the mission of the Financial Aid Office to educate and assist students and their families in securing the funding that they need. The three general categories of financial aid programs offered by the University to qualified undergraduate students include loans, grants, and scholarships. We encourage you to pursue and consider all of the financial assistance opportunities that are available to you.

For additional information about financial aid, you may visit the University's financial aid website.
