Financial Aid

The Office of Student Financial Aid & Scholarships has put together a Financial Aid Checklist for incoming graduate and professional students. Use this checklist as a brief guide to help you apply for aid, review and accept your awards, and pay your fees.

The The Office of Student Financial Aid & Scholarships is located at 1714 College Street. You can reach them by email uscfaid@sc.edu, by fax (803) 777-0941, or by phone (803) 777-8134.

Financial Literacy

Graduate students are encouraged to take a holistic approach to financing their education. This may include budgeting, assistantships, fellowships and awards, stipends, work, work-study, loans, and grants. While statistics bear out that graduate school consistently pays off, students are cautioned against taking out excessive amounts of loans. As a general rule, students are advised not to take out sums that will total, upon repayment, more than 8 percent of their projected monthly income. Students wishing to learn more about projected earnings will find the Career Center to be a useful resource. We also encourage all new and current graduate students to visit the Financial Literacy and Paying for Graduate School pages, which highlight money-related resources available to graduate students.
