Financial Aid Communication Policy


Electronic mail or "e-mail" is the official method of communication to students regarding their financial aid status. Official Financial Aid communications sent to all students will include reminders about important dates, missing or incomplete financial aid documents, and notifications concerning financial aid award packages.

In the e-mail, you will be instructed to log into Self Service Carolina and select USC Beaufort, as your campus, in order to review your current financial aid status or award package. In some circumstances, there may be additional information needed to complete the financial aid file. At that point, you will need to contact the Financial Aid/VA Office at 843-521-3104.

It is extremely important that you maintain your University e-mail account. It is your responsibility as a student to check your University e-mail account frequently to retrieve official communication and to ensure that mailbox space is available to receive these notifications.
