Regular Action

Become a Don.

Regular Action applicants receive priority consideration when they apply by January 15 and will receive a decision within four to six weeks after all required materials have been received.

  • Regular Action plans are non-binding. You'll have until May 1 to make your final decision.
  • We will take first semester, senior year grades into account when assessing your academic standing.
  • Submitting fall grades ensures a timely admission decision as well as potential financial assistance.
  • The majority of applicants apply Regular Action.
  • You will receive your admission decision by mid-March.

Applications submitted after the regular action deadline dates will be considered on a space-available basis, and financial aid will be limited.

Why Regular Action?

If you’re considering USF, applying Regular Action will:

  • Provide more time to create the most compelling application possible.
  • Allow for the strongest academic credentials and the possibility for merit aid and institutional grant aid.
  • Present a longer time frame to explore why the University of San Francisco is the right fit for you.
