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.

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.

Haden also reaffirmed the university’s commitment to assist those scholarship student-athletes in good academic standing that have exhausted their intercollegiate eligibility to obtain their undergraduate degrees. USC has assisted more than 250 former student-athletes with undergraduate degree academic support over the last decade.
