How to Apply

All first-year applicants admitted to the JD program will automatically be considered for a scholarship award.  With the exception of the Rothman Scholarship, which is an invitation-only scholarship, there are no applications required for scholarship consideration.  Scholarship decisions are sent separately from admission decisions.  Greater than one-half of each entering class will be offered a scholarship award.  These awards typically range from $10,000 per year up to full tuition and we always guarantee our scholarship awards for three years, with no minimum gpa requirement.  As long as full-time enrollment at USC Gould is maintained there is no question about scholarship renewal.

If, in addition to scholarships, you also wish to be considered for and to receive additional information about available student loan programs, you will need to submit the following:

Please note that USC Law does not require parental information on the FAFSA nor do we require the Needs Access Application

Transfer Admits: USC Law Scholarship funds are not available. If you require student loans to finance your legal education at USC, please complete the FAFSA and USC Enrollment and Housing Form above.

Upon completing the steps above, admitted applicants will receive electronic notification of eligibility for student loans.  At that point, admitted applicants will be informed of the additional steps required to secure the student loans they wish to borrow.
