Direct Deposit Stipend Instructions

If you are a US citizen or permanent resident, you have the option of receiving your stipend by direct deposit to a checking or savings account. If you are an international student, we will be contacting you separately to go over your payment options.

  • Fill in all fields on the Direct Deposit Form, print it out and sign.
  • Attach a voided check
  • Completed forms should be sent to: University Payroll Services, UGB 212, MC 8016.
  • Be advised that depending on the timing of your Direct Deposit submission, your next stipend installment may still be sent as a check.

If you are awarded a fellowship and do not have Direct Deposit, your stipend checks will be mailed to your local address directly from USC Financial & Business Services.  Please insure that your local address is accurate on OASIS.  We are no longer able to pick-up and distribute checks from our office.

If you have questions about the direct deposit option, please contact  Tiffany Fong by email at

IF YOU ALREADY HAVE DIRECT DEPOSIT, it is not necessary to resubmit the form.
