If you have been awarded a Perkins loan, Stafford loan, Pell grant, or other federal loan or grant, the credit will not appear on your Fall / Spring billing statement*. Under federal regulations, most awards of this type may not be posted to student accounts until the first day of classes. The disbursement date for Fall 2012 is August 17, 2012. Student Financial Services is now sending email notifications when financial aid is posted to your student account.
For questions about Financial Aid or anticipated loan funds which have not been credited to your student account, please contact the Office of Financial Aid, or go: http://www.usc.edu/admission/fa .
* Fall / Spring billing statements are generated the month before the start of classes.
