Protect Your Identity


USC Aiken actively seeks to assist students, agencies, and other USC Aiken departments with the prevention of potential fraud and identity protection.  To that end, we are providing the following important information for our educational community.

Representatives from USC Aiken will not contact students, parents, or any third party to discuss financial aid information without clearly identifying themselves and, only then, in response to an inquiry from you.  It is always best to ask for the caller’s name and phone number prior to any discussion of sensitive/financial information.  You can then call the University at 803/648-6851 and ask for that caller by name.

These are important steps to protect your personal information.
