Financing Your Education
USF is committed to working with you to find the best ways to finance your education, be it through financial aid programs, scholarship opportunities, or payment plans.
Your most important resource at USF is its people. The faculty and staff of the Orange County Campus are at your disposal from the moment you begin considering enrollment until the day you graduate (and often beyond that). When you first start thinking about applying, they’ll help you pinpoint your desired area of study, explain the admission requirements, and prepare you to begin your specific academic program. To make an appointment to meet with a program staff member, please call (714) 633-5626.
A wide variety of resources are available online through USF's Gleeson Library | Geschke Center. Online books, journal articles, and videos (plus document delivery) provide the materials, and online research help, class instruction, and research guides provide guidance in using them. See the library’s Online & Distance Services page for key services.
Nursing students also have access to St. Joseph Hospital’s Burlew Medical Library, located directly next to campus.
USF's Learning, Writing, and Speaking Centers, located on the main campus in San Francisco, provide tutors and writing professionals to support students at no cost. Students at the Orange County Campus can work with tutors either one-on-one or in groups via phone or video conference.
Special support services located on the main campus also offer remote services to USF students at our additional locations.
It’s no secret that working towards your degree can be stressful, just like life itself sometimes. At USF, we want you to know that you are never alone, no matter how lonely you might feel if you’re struggling. Our Counseling and Psychological Services program is here to help and support you. You’re able to receive brief individual or couples therapy, and if you require or desire longer-term counseling, you’ll receive the referrals you need. We’re here, so please don’t suffer in silence.
The Office of Student Disability Services works to promote awareness of disability and accessibility concerns across all campuses. No matter which additional campus you attend, you can contact the disability office and register by phone or online. The main office will work with you remotely to address your needs, and appointments can be scheduled either at the main campus or over the phone.
Our Career Services Center offers resume writing skills workshops, career and internship fairs, job listings, and opportunities to interview with prospective employers. The Career Advisor Network consists of USF alumni, working in a wide range of fields, who want to support you both before and after you graduate. Additional campuses collaborate with Career Services to regularly host career exploration and career planning workshops and job fairs locally.
USF's thousands of alumni span the globe and provide invaluable career mentoring and networking opportunities for students and graduates.
