Self-Pay Interns

(Interns that are paying for their own stay)

Interns will need to fill out the Intern application and submit a reservation deposit equal to the first week's rent. Assignments will not be made until deposit is received.

Payment is preferred at the start of each week, but can be made on a bi-weekly basis. A secured “Housing Drop Box” in the Central Housing Office door (Pacer Crossing Room 130) may be used for payment if after normal business hours. Cancellation of your reservation must be made in writing via fax( 803-641-3785) or email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) 3 days prior to your scheduled check-in date. Cancellations that do not meet this deadline will result in the forfeit of initial reservation deposits. Those who meet the cancellation guidelines will receive this payment back within 4 to 6 weeks. Failure to cancel your request for Spring Housing will result in the individual remaining responsible for the housing fees for the requested spring dates. Acceptable payment methods are check (made payable to USC Aiken), cash, money order and credit card. Partial payments are not allowed so please pay the full weekly amount each week. A $30 fee will be assessed for all returned checks.

Group Sponsored Interns

(Interns whose payment will be made by a group/sponsor)

The group/sponsor that will be paying for the intern(s) will need to fill out the Intern Sponsor form, providing us with information for billing purposes. The intern(s)will also need to fill out the Intern application. If more than one intern is being sponsored by the same group/sponsor, only one Intern Sponsor form will need to be filled out. In addition, each intern needs to fill out the Intern application.
