Tips on Entering U.S. Address

  • The “Local Street Address Line 1” field can only contain street number and street name (Example: 325 W. Adams Blvd.)
  • The “Local Street Address Line 2” field can only contain the unit number, applicable to those students living in an apartment complex or multi-unit USC housing (Example: Apt 210 or Unit 5). If you live in a house, leave this field blank.
  • The U.S. ZIP code section must be properly filled out with five digits and the additional four digits at the end are unnecessary and can be omitted
  • Please enter the city’s name and zip code accurately (Example: Santa Monica 90401)
  • If you are unsure of any part of your local U.S. address, such as the street name, city name and zip code, please utilize Google Maps for address verification and accuracy
