USC Payment Plan

The USC Payment Plan offers students an option to extend payment of university billed expenses on the student account over a whole term (Aug-Dec & Jan-May), for fall and spring terms.  Trimester plans (Aug-Nov)(Dec-Mar)(Apr-Jul) are available for Dentistry, MBA-PM and Law students ONLY. 

The USC Payment Plan application and payment processing are completely online. When you submit an application for a term, you create a payment profile which is used to pay the application fee ($50), the down payment, and monthly payments.  Payment plans require the use of a U.S. bank checking or savings account for the automatic monthly payments.
