    enter a temporary code emailed to you from no-reply@sailpoint.com

STEP 3: REVIEW & ACCEPT FINANCIAL AID OFFER

A quick reminder: In order to verify and accept your financial aid offer from USF, you must:

  • Have set up your myUSF account (Step 1)
  • Have submitted a completed FAFSA

Once we have your completed FAFSA, the Financial Aid office will send you both a paper award letter and email.

In order for your financial aid to be reflected on your student account/bill, you’ll need to officially accept or decline your federal loans and complete any outstanding requirements. 

Starting late March, please visit the Financial Aid guide for how to view and accept your financial aid offer. If you are accepting federal loans as part of your financial aid offer, please make sure to read the instructions about completing your Master Promissory Note (MPN) and Entrance Counseling.

Deadline: We recommend that you accept your financial aid offer as soon as possible after you receive it so that any aid will be credited to your tuition and other charges when payment is due.

Veterans: Please contact our Veterans team at veterans@usfca.edu to ensure that they have everything they need to process your benefits (e.g. Post-9/11 (Chapter 33) benefit, Yellow Ribbon Scholarship, etc.).

Undocumented students:

Although undocumented students are not eligible to receive federal aid, there are a variety of scholarships, grants, and loans for which you may be eligible, including Cal Grants or University Grants through the California DREAM Act.

We are committed to empowering undocumented students to bolster their future as college graduates. For more information, please see USF's Task Force to Support Undocumented Students.

Non-U.S. citizens:
If you a non-citizen, you may be eligible for certain types of financial aid. To see if you qualify, please visit the Federal Student Aid website.

STEP 5: COMPLETE WEBTRACK ADVISING

Webtrack Advising is our online class registration process for first-time students. It will guide you through the online class registration process and explain which classes to register for.

  • Watch the advising tutorials (30–45 minutes)
    Starting May 1, go to the BSM Webtrack page to watch the advising video tutorials. Work your way through the videos until you've watched all the videos. You'll learn about graduation requirements, our Core Curriculum, placement tests, and more.

    As you're going through the videos, keep a list of courses you'll need to register for so you'll be ready for registration.
  • Complete the Webtrack quiz (5 minutes)
    After watching the Webtrack videos, you must pass a quiz to be cleared for class registration. The quiz will be available starting May 19. 

    If you do not pass the Webtrack quiz, you will be unable to register for classes because you will have a hold on your student account that prevents you from registering. This hold is removed after you complete and pass the Webtrack quiz.
  • Get ready to register for classes
    Registration for classes begins 9 a.m. PT on June 2.
  • For both the Downtown SF and Pleasanton cohorts, the first day of classes is Thursday, August 26 from 6 – 10 p.m. All fall 2021 classes will be remote.

The Sexual Violence Prevention module unpacks and sheds light on the realities and misconceptions of issues such as sexual assault, relationship violence, and rape. 

You will receive an invitation via email when your course becomes available. If you do not receive an email, please contact hps@usfca.edu. Please complete the course by Aug 1, otherwise you will be charged a $100 late fine.

Staying Healthy in a Changing Environment for Students on Campus

This course is required for all students, whether or not you'll be joining us on campus. This course will review COVID-19 basics and best practices for physical safety, promoting mental wellness and health, working remotely and staying productive from afar, and returning to an in-person learning environment.

You should receive an email from EverFi to complete the course. If you have not received the email, please contact us at hps@usfca.edu. Please complete the course by Aug 1, otherwise you will be charged a $100 late fine.

Deadline: August 1 to complete all three online programs

STEP 12: CONFIRM YOUR HEALTH INSURANCE (for BSM students taking 9+ units)

As a condition of enrollment, the University of San Francisco requires students to have a health insurance plan, both to protect against unexpected high medical costs and to provide access to quality care.

USF plan:
All undergraduate students registered for nine credit hours or more will be automatically enrolled in and charged for the USF-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan.

Waive USF plan:
Students who have a health insurance plan with coverage comparable (equal or better) to the USF-sponsored plan can waive the student health insurance plan online by visiting the Health Insurance Policy page. The waiver period begins June 6 and ends September 1.

Deadline: September 1 by 5 p.m.
If you do not waive the insurance requirement by September 1, you will be automatically enrolled in and charged for the USF-sponsored plan.
