USC Sumter reopened for in-person classes on August 20, 2020. Face coverings are required on-campus and social distancing is encouraged among members of the campus community. The semester will be offered in an accelerated format, with in-person instruction ending on Nov. 24. In addition, classes will be held on many traditional holidays and breaks to allow for the semester to end earlier than usual. Classes will be held remotely on General Election Day (Nov. 3), Nov. 30 and Dec. 1. Fall break will also be cancelled with face-to-face instruction being held on Oct. 15-16. Details can be found on the coronavirus landing page.

    Business Office

    The Business Office provides financial services support to students, parents, faculty, staff, deans, department heads and the administration. Our office functions primarily as the official depository of all university funds and is responsible for receipting and disbursing all funds, which includes the assessment and collection of tuition and fees.

    Tuition and Fees

    Student bills are not mailed, bills are available in Self Service (SSC) at my.sc.edu.

    Paying for School

    Payment In-Person - Currently we are not accepting in-person payments due to COVID-19 campus closure. (Credit and debit card payments must be made online at my.sc.edu. Also electronic check payments are accepted as an alternative method without adding more costs to your bill associated with credit card payments.)
    Payment by Mail - Please pay attention to Payment Deadlines before mailing payments. If you pay your fees by mail, please include the student’s name and VIP ID along with your check or money order made payable to USC Sumter for the balance due amount and mail to:

    The Business Office date stamps all mail-in payments as they are received. Self-service Carolina (SSC) payments are processed as they are recorded electronically.

    Payment Plan
