|May 15, 2020||Priority deadline to "accept" the Federal Direct Unsubsidized and Graduate PLUS Loans online for the 2020-21 academic year via your myUSF online student portal. If you are awarded this aid after May 15, you can still "accept" this aid AFTER May 15 but you should do so as soon as possible to insure proper processing for the upcoming Fall 2020 semester. Failure to "accept" this federal aid in a timely manner could jeopardize your ability to utilize the aid to help pay your Fall 2020 semester tuition bill which is due on August 1. IMPORTANT: Applicants admitted after July 15 should "accept" their Unsubsidized and Graduate PLUS Loan award as soon as they are awarded the aid to insure that is made available to help with your fall semester bill. Late admits will be provided additional assistance to insure their financial aid processing is complete before the fall semester payment deadline of August 1.|
