In addition to finding a wealth of information on the Web regarding your financial aid, you can apply for aid and monitor your aid application at USF via the Financial Aid Web: http://www.usf.edu/finaid and via OASIS: http://usfonline.admin.usf.edu/.
Complete and submit the FAFSA online at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov. Be sure to list the University of South Florida, school code #001537, as a school to receive your information.
Since many programs are funded on a limited basis, it is to your advantage to apply early. Priority application dates and detailed information regarding financial aid are provided each year in the Financial Aid Handbook and on our Web site. Conduct a nationwide scholarship search: http://www.fastweb.com/ and check out USF’s scholarship information.
The Office of Financial Aid communicates important information regarding your aid via e-mail throughout the year. Therefore, it is extremely important that you ensure that your current e-mail address is in OASIS.
Tuition, housing and meal plan deferments are available to qualified financial aid applicants. For more information, see your Schedule of Classes.
Short-term loans are also available for limited use. The deadline for deferred tuition payment and details about short-term loans are printed in the Schedule of Classes.
Because we are required by federal regulations to verify the last date of attendance in classes, at the end of each semester, the Office of Financial Aid mails letters to financial aid recipients who appear to have unofficially withdrawn. (Your semester grades are all F, U, or I.) Your last date of attendance may be considered the last date you submitted an assignment or took an exam, or your last date of actual attendance in classes. This letter requires a response within 14 days, or it will be assumed you did not attend beyond the 50% point of the term. This may require you to repay a portion of federal financial aid received.
Each campus has a financial representative. Tampa (813) 974-4700; Lakeland (863) 667-7028; Sarasota (941) 359-4330; St. Petersburg (727) 553-1128. If you are outside the calling area, call us at 1-877-USF-BULLS.
