Applying for Financial Aid

Students applying for financial aid will need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA determines the amount of assistance and which program is appropriate for each applicant. You may obtain this application from the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships or your high school guidance counselor, or you can apply online using FAFSA on the Web. To complete the FAFSA online, a FAFSA ID number is required. This can be obtained by going to http://www.pin.ed.gov. When you receive your ID by e-mail, you are ready to complete the FAFSA. When completing the FAFSA, you will be asked for your school code. USC Upstate's Title IV School Code is 006951.

dollar bill You financial aid will NOT automatically go onto your account unless you apply it to your bill through Self Service Carolina (SSC). Note that EVERY successful bill paying transaction yields a confirmation number. Please print that out for your records in case you need it for verification in the future.

Bills will no longer be mailed. You must pay your bill on SSC by the cancellation date. You will lose your schedule if you do not pay your bill on time!
