How to Pay

4-Week Courses

Tuition & Fees are settled through the USC Office of Student Financial Services. The balance of the tuition and fees is due by Friday, June 1, 2018. Students who have not paid in full will be dropped from the program.

In order to view and pay your bill, you will need to complete all four (4) steps listed below.  Please be aware that your bill WILL NOT be mailed to you.  You may only view your bill online, thus, you will need to complete these steps.

If you have any questions about your bill, you may contact the USC Office of Student Financial Services. You will need your 10-digit USC ID number for any communication with this office.

DOMESTIC STUDENTS – electronic transfer of funds to USC from your checking or savings account
Step 4.A. Make a Payment (made in the United States)

We recommend that domestic students pay online through the USCe.pay system using a credit card or electronic funds transfer. You should still be logged into USCe.pay. (If not, complete steps 1-3, above.) Once you know the amount due, you can proceed to make your payment.

  1. Select “Make Payment”
  2. Select “Tuition and Fees”
  3. Verify the amount you wish to pay and click on “Add to Payment Queue”
  4. Select “Checkout”
  5. Select a payment method and click on “Continue with Payment Entry”
  6. Enter your credit card or bank transfer information and complete your payment
  7. Print yourself a receipt

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS – wire transfer via Flywire or Western Union
Step 4.B. Make a Payment (made outside of the United States; from a non-US Bank)

USC has partnered with Flywire for international payments and Western Union Business Solutions to streamline the tuition payment process for our students who need to wire funds to the university. USC does not charge you for using the Flywire or Western Union options, however your local bank may charge fees to initiate a transfer on your behalf.   Flywire does not accept domestic payments, only the Western Union wire option is available for domestic payments.

Plan ahead and wire your payment far enough in advance to ensure that it reaches USC before the settlement deadline. Wired funds transactions can take 2-5 business days to complete after your local bank initiates payment to Flywire or Western Union.

International Payments (foreign bank transfer, foreign credit card, e-wallet)
International students will save on exchange rates, and in most cases can pay in their local currencies. We encourage you to explore both wire payment options.

Paying by Wire Transfer
To pay by wire transfer, go to USCe.pay and follow these steps:

  1. Select “Make Payment”
  2. Select “Tuition and Fees”
  3. Verify the amount you wish to pay and click on “Add to Payment Queue”
  4. Select “Checkout”
  5. Select the hyperlink “International Payments with Flywire” as your payment method:
    • You will be redirected to the Flywire site, customized for USC students.
    • Follow the instructions on this site and complete your payment to Flywire within two business days. Payments will be credited to your student account once the funds are received by USC’s bank.
