Note to external organizations wishing to add a discount to this section

The Employee Gateway promotes internal perks, rewards and benefits to the USC community; with few exceptions, it does not promote discounts available by external companies. Moreover, Gateway staff are not the decision makers who work with outside companies to introduce rewards; instead, we promote already existing USC special programs, services or rewards. We do not offer a list of discounts from third party vendors because of the time and strict review processes required to vet and maintain these listings with regard to liability and conflict of interest. Businesses wishing to enter into a relationship with the university should contact USC Business Services.
