USC to offer 4-year scholarships
Leading the way in student-athlete welfare, USC will now offer four-year athletic scholarships in the revenue sports.
USC will offer four-year athletic scholarships to all scholarship student-athletes in the revenue sports of football and men's and women's basketball in lieu of the current practice of offering one-year renewable scholarships, USC athletic director Pat Haden announced Monday.
Haden said this policy will be effective July 1 for all current and future scholarship student-athletes in those sports.
"In taking this action, USC hopes to help lead the effort to refocus on student-athlete welfare on and off the field," Haden said.
