Financial Aid Information

The University’s School of Education awards several types of scholarships to newly admitted and current students. Please review the links below for USF, state, federal and other financial resources.

We encourage all students to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at the same time that they are applying for the program to secure funding.

To begin your financial aid application process, file the FAFSA. It is required for all Federal and State, and many USF student aid programs.

HESA Students

Many of our Higher Education & Student Affairs (HESA) students fund their graduate education through securing HESA internships.

The University of San Francisco Federal School Code is 001325. You must provide that code to ensure that the University receives your application for aid. The FAFSA application is available at USF's One Stop website and www.fafsa.ed.gov/.

File the FAFSA as soon as you know that you will be applying for admission and financial aid for study at the University of San Francisco. Remember that even if you file electronically, there is still processing time involved for every application. 

For assistance with the FAFSA, contact One Stop at (415) 422-2020 or via email at onestop@usfca.edu.

In order to offset the cost of graduate education, many School of Education courses are offered in the late afternoon and evening, and/or on alternating weekends. Most students find they can maintain a full time job while earning their credential, master’s or doctoral degree. However, if your program requires you to spend time in a classroom (i.e. student teaching) or to complete a fieldwork or traineeship experience, such commitments will interfere with a normal workday. Please consult your intended program of study for more information.
