When you register for classes at USC,
you are personally agreeing to be held solely
responsible for all tuition and fees.

(See "Obligation For Payment" under "Tuition and Fees"
in the "Schedule of Classes
").
 
Parents and others may volunteer to pay,
and if they have an email address, you may have
e-bill notices sent directly to their email address by
setting them up as a Guest User on OASIS or USCe.pay,
granting them access to your student account with the option
to set up Payment Plans for eligible students.

United States Federal Law requires that before we discuss
details of your student account with anyone other than you,
we must have on file a document commonly known as a
"Buckley Waiver". You may also grant access to your online
information and statements by setting guests up as
Guest Users on OASIS or USCe.pay.
