Veteran referral program

You can help bring some of the country’s best and brightest to USC!

The university takes pride in a long and robust relationship with the United States Armed Forces, including a notable history of supporting veterans. Through academic offerings, ROTC programs, veteran-focused research programs and our employment and hiring activities, USC continues an unparalleled commitment to supporting U.S. military veterans.

Now, USC faculty and staff employees can help us hire the best and the brightest from the veteran community by taking advantage of our veteran referral program for Protected Veterans:

  • Refer a U.S. military veteran applicant for any USC position
  • If that referral results in a successful hire, you receive a $200 referral bonus

Please note that this program excludes internal hires, transfers or promotions, and also excludes referrals from recruiting staff or hiring managers involving positions in which they are directly involved in the hiring decisions. For more information on who is a Protected Veteran eligible for this program, please review Am I A Protected Veteran?.
