Step 3: Accept Your Financial Aid

Important: In order to verify and accept your financial aid offer from USF, you'll need to have set up your myUSF account (see Step 1). You also should have already completed your FAFSA. Once we have these items, the Financial Aid office will contact you via mail and/or email when your offer is ready to review.

Before your financial aid is reflected on your student account, you’ll need to officially accept or decline your federal loans and complete any outstanding requirements. 

View and Accept Your Financial Aid Offer

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.

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

Deadline: ASAP, or within two weeks of receiving your financial aid offer.
