Since its founding in 1978, the USC Emeriti Center has served the university’s retirees and pre-retirees in living healthy and purposeful lives by providing essential information, resources, services, advocacy, privileges, and support. Part of the Office of the Provost, the Emeriti Center offers most of its services and programs free of charge and open to campus and community. We are an inclusive community celebrating our diverse population and offer many intergenerational learning programs throughout the year.



retirement Planning

As you approach and begin retirement, the USC Emeriti Center is here to help. We have a wealth of information and ideas to share. Although this information is not a substitute for, nor does USC offer, legal, tax, or financial advice, we hope you will find it helpful, and invite you to contact us with any further questions.

Retiree Privileges

We proudly recognize those who have honorably served USC for years by offering opportunities to receive benefits such as the USC Gold Card and Emeritus Status to those who are eligible.


The USC Emeriti Center helps retirees connect with the information and resources they need to help maximize enjoyment of their retirement years. Along with the Emeriti Center Retiree Community Newsletter, the following links provide information other retirees have found useful. Please contact the Emeriti Center at if you have suggestions for additions to the list.

Make A Gift

It is through your generosity that we are able to offer more events and educational programs, honor and preserve our USC history, and engage in new service initiatives. Many of our services simply would not be possible without the philanthropic support of those who share our mission.
