Financial Aid and Scholarships


Concurrent Enrollment

You are considered a concurrent student if you are a USC Columbia student who enrolls at both USC Columbia and at another institution (including other USC campuses) during the same semester. Students must receive approval from their academic advisor to participate.

Concurrently enrolled students may receive financial aid for course work at one school only and must meet the minimum requirements for each type of financial aid received for attendance at that school. Hours from both schools cannot be combined.

Students taking courses at both USC Columbia and USC Fort Jackson within the same semester are not considered concurrently enrolled students. USC Columbia graduate students who are taking courses at both USC and another USC regional campus are not considered concurrent students.
