For more information, please refer to USC's Refund of Academic Fees Policy (FINA 4.06).
If you register for classes after the payment deadline, your payment is due immediately. Additionally, if you are dropped from classes as a result of nonpayment, a $75 fee will be assessed for re-enrollment. Learn more about drops, withdrawals and late admissions.
Withdrawal and Refund Dates
Withdrawal deadlines should not be used in determining how to receive a 100% refund on tuition. For more details, please review the withdrawal information provided by the University Registrar, or view the Parts of Term Dates and Deadlines located in the Academics section of my.sc.edu.
