Please note that USC's wire transfer fee of $12.50* must be added to, over and above, the total amount of payment. If the 'sending' bank also charges for wire transfers you will need to add their fee as well.

If you must depend on money from abroad for your expenses while enrolled at USC, we urge you to become familiar with the foreign exchange requirements of your country and the procedures to follow.

    Loans

    Three types of loans are available to finance your MBA — Federal Stafford Loans, Federal Direct Granduate PLUS Loans and private student loans. If you are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, we recommend that you apply for Federal Stafford Loans first, because they offer favorable interest rates and origination fees. International students are not eligible for this loan program.

    Federal Stafford Loan. There are two types, subsidized and unsubsidized. For subsidized Stafford Loans, the federal government pays the interest while you are in school and during authorized deferment and grace periods. For the unsubsidized Stafford Loans, deferred interest is capitalized (added to the principal) at repayment. For more information, visit www.fafsa.ed.gov.

    Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan. Graduate and professional students may wish to consider this low-interest, credit -based federal loan to cover their expenses. You must first exhaust your full Federal Stafford Loan eligibility to be considered for this loan.

    Private Loan. Private loans are available to both domestic and international applicants. You should be aware that interest rates and fees vary significantly among lending institutions. International applicants may be required to have a U.S. citizen co-sign the loan.
