Financial Aid Information

gleeson_windowsEducational financing is a concern for many USF students and may be for you as well.

To help you with this, we have highlighted in this section information about USF, state and federal resources, as well as other private scholarships and fellowships. We hope you find these resources helpful.

Where should I begin?

File Your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

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

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 One Stop-Apply for Aid 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, visit USF One Stop-Apply for Aid or call One Stop at (415) 422-2020.

What about work – can I keep my job while I’m in school?

All 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.
