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. To opt into direct deposit, please follow the directions that is outlined in the “How to Sign Up for Direct Deposit SSTI” pdf document.  If you are an international student, we will be contacting you separately to go over your payment options.

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 at the beginning of each semester/term.  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 tiffantf@usc.edu.

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