Admission & Aid
High School Counselors & Advisors
The University of San Francisco — a private, Jesuit university — reflects the energy, diversity, and opportunities of the city that surrounds it.
We are eager to meet your students and show them everything that USF has to offer.
We’re exploring new and exciting ways to connect with students virtually. Stay updated by signing up for our USF Community Connection, specifically for high school counselors and community-based organizations. We’ll share news, admission updates, and event reminders.
Note about COVID-19
We recognize that students around the world have experienced many challenges and uncertainties this year. Here’s what you should know:
- Your students' applications to USF will not be penalized for any changes caused by the pandemic
- Since 2019, we have maintained a test-optional approach to admission
- Letters of recommendation are optional
We encourage students to mention anything else that may have shaped their experience (e.g. lack of access to the internet, no quiet place to study, family responsibilities, etc.). Learn more about what we look for.
Virtual Info Session
Our virtual info session offers an overview of academics, student life, financial aid, and more.
If you’d like to learn more about a specific topic, please request a presentation from a USF admission counselor — we’d be happy to help.
Admission Counselors are assigned by state or region for first-year students and by major for transfer students. Search for the admission counselor who will be working with your students and say hi.
Every year, the majority of incoming first-year students receive some form of financial aid. Our Office of Financial Aid is committed to making a USF education a reality for your students and their families. Learn more about how to apply for financial aid, as well as our grants and scholarships.
We’d be happy to tell you and your students more about the financial aid process. Request a presentation from the Office of Financial Aid.
