Each admitted student has a student account that reflects all university-related charges and credits, including tuition, lab and general fees, financial aid, and dining and housing charges. The Cashier’s office will send you an e-mail each month notifying you that your current bill is available to view and pay online at the “USCe.pay” website Your initial housing charges will appear on your August 1 bill and will be due at the beginning of the semester.

If you’re in a residence hall, suite or undergraduate apartment, you’ll be billed for all semester rent in August and then again for spring semester rent in January. If you’re in an apartment for graduate students or family housing, you’ll be billed for prorated August rent and full September rent, and then monthly after that.

Rent payments must be made to the Cashier’s Office, not to the USC Housing Office. Only application and confirmation payments should be sent directly to USC Housing. If you have university billing questions, call the Cashier’s Office at (213) 740-7471. For questions about financial aid or loans, visit the Cashier’s Office website.
