Funding

Financial aid programs at USC Upstate make it easier for many students to attend school who could not do so if left entirely to their own resources. The three general categories of federally-sponsored financial aid programs offered by the University to qualified undergraduate students include loans, grants, scholarships and work-study programs.

Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
