Financial Aid

Welcome to the University of South Carolina Palmetto College Central Financial Aid web site. The Palmetto College Central Financial Aid Office provides administrative support to the Financial Aid Offices located on the University of South Carolina Palmetto College Campuses.   We have many resources available to you on this site.  

In developing the information presented at this web site, we have prepared information that will guide you through the financial aid process while attending one of the four Palmetto College Campuses. We hope you will find the information helpful, that you will return to our site regularly for new/updated information, and that it will become a valuable tool for you in planning the financing of your higher education.
