Just follow these simple instructions to transfer balances from your higher interest credit cards to your USC Credit Union MasterCard.

  1. After receiving your USC Credit Union MasterCard, fill out our balance transfer form and follow the return instructions indicated in the form.
  2. You may transfer any amount, but the total amount of your balance transfers cannot exceed your available credit line. You may not transfer balances from other USC Credit Union loans. (Also, you should not transfer the amount of any disputed purchase or charge. If you do, you may lose your dispute rights.)
  3. Continue to pay the other credit card companies until we notify you in writing that we have approved your balance transfer. Once approved, we will pay the amount directly to that card issuer.
