The Custodian is the person responsible for managing, distributing, accounting, and
safekeeping for all cash. The custodian must be a USC employee, students may not be
listed as the custodian.
This is the date by which you need cash. Expect a minimum of 10 business days from
the day you submit this request before a check is mailed/ready to pick up
Provide the date that you anticipate completing disbursement of funds. Cash advances
must be closed out within a year of receipt. We encourage keeping a cash advance open
no longer than 90 days unless necessary.
Provide a brief statement explaining your need for cash and how it will be disbursed.
Please request the total amount of cash you will need. It is easier to return unused
cash than to continue requesting additional funds. However, the custodian is responsible
for the funds, so please do not request an amount that exceeds your comfort level.
Please provide the account/project number. For grants, if you do not the project number,
you can find it in USCeRA under Awards.
