Financial Aid

In order to ensure the accuracy of the information provided on your FAFSA, you may be required to submit a copy of your parents' and/or your Tax Return Transcript and other relevant document(s) to the USC Aiken Office of Financial Aid. 

If your application is chosen for verification, you will be notified through your Self Service Aiken account. It is extremely important that you respond promptly to any request for additional information or documentation. Financial aid awards can only be made after all required information is received, reviewed and determined to be accurate. This includes awards for grants, student loans, federal work-study and some institutional scholarships. Even if your application is received by the priority deadline, you will not receive a financial aid award if your file is incomplete.
