End of the Year Check-out Procedures

Students who have submitted a summer housing application and who have been assigned to a space do not have to move out. However, University Housing will contact you about your Summer Session Housing assignment and provide you with dates and times in which to move to your new assignment. 

All personal property must be removed from the apartment/suite. The resident must take all personal property with them upon their departure. Any property left for 30 days after vacating the apartment/suite will be considered abandoned and will become the property of USC Aiken.  Items left will be disposed of as the University sees fit. Failure to remove items from the suite/apartment will result in removal charges and storage fees starting at $20 per item.

Each resident must sign up for a time through the Sign Up Genius site, complete the Online Check-Out Form, and return their keys in an envelope at the outgoing mailbox in their community, either Pacer Commons or Pacer Downs.

Failure to complete the checkout processes will result in a minimum $50 fine for improper check out. Any charges incurred for the removal of all personal property and possible storage charges will also be charged to the resident. Final apartment/suite inspections will be conducted by a professional staff member of USC Aiken Housing after the departure of the resident. 

Damages outlined in the Housing Community Guide will be assessed within 30 days after checkout and notice of damage charges will be sent to the residents’ permanent address. Any damages incurred by residents who will not return to University Housing the following academic year will be taken from the $125 security deposit. Any remaining amount will be refunded to the resident.


Security Deposit Refunds

Security Deposit Refunds are processed by USC Aiken and then forwarded to USC Columbia for checks to be issued. Please make sure you update your mailing address in Self-Service Carolina (SSC) so that your deposit refund check gets mailed to the correct address. This process takes 6-8 weeks.
