Undergraduate Financial Aid

The University of South Florida offers several forms of public and private financial aid including scholarships, fellowships, grants, work-study programs and loans. USF continues to have one of the lowest tuition rates throughout the United States and strives to continually make the USF experience as affordable as possible for students and their families. Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) allows you to be automatically considered for federal, state, and university financial aid programs.

Admissions Scholarships:

To be considered, all you have to do is apply for admission to the University by January 2. There are no separate applications to complete for this form of financial aid. Visit the USF Scholarships and Financial Aid page to explore opportunities available to Florida and non-Florida residents. Be sure to note the award timelines on accepting or renewing scholarships.

School of Music Talent Awards:

Financial assistance from the School of Music is available in the form of Talent Scholarships and possible Out-of-State Tuition Waivers. These annual scholarships are based upon an applicants performance for our applied faculty during their School of Music audition. Since all applicants are considered for these Talent Awards, a separate application is not needed. Applicants are required to follow the application deadlines in order to be considered for these awards, so please be sure to check on this information under the Application Procedures page.

Other Scholarships:

Search for university scholarships and privately funded USF Foundation scholarships. Florida Bright Futures Scholarships are available for high-achieving students from Florida. The USF Scholarship Resources website provides information about a great number of outside scholarships.

Other Financial Aid:

Your parents or another relative may have a Florida Pre-Paid Program plan or you may be eligible for veterans benefits. Student employment is another great way to earn while you learn.
