Employer Reimbursement

If you are registered for classes for the upcoming term, you may be eligible to defer payment of up to 90% of your tuition if:

  • Your employer reimburses you for tuition at the end of each term.
  • Your student account is current.

Loans or any other assistance received will reduce the amount you are eligible to defer.

How to Apply for Deferment

  • Complete and submit the deferment application.
  • Student Financial Services will email you a promissory note packet with instructions.
  • Sign and submit the promissory note packet to uscsfs@usc.edu or in person at Jefferson Parking Structure 100.

The student must pay 10% of tuition, 100% of all fees, and a $100 application fee, prior to the settlement deadline each term. A new deferment application and company letter are required each term.

Payment of Balance

Payment is due upon expiration of deferment. If not paid, your account will become past due. Deferments expire January 25 for fall; April 25 for spring, and September 25 for summer.

The student is responsible for paying the deferred tuition.
