Bill Payment Deferments
A tuition deferment prevents cancellation of registration for non-payment of fees, and temporarily prevents assessment of the late payment fee.
Receipt of a tuition deferment is not a guarantee that you will receive aid and does not prevent a cash collections hold from being placed on your student account. Cash collection holds prevent you from registering for future terms and from obtaining official transcripts until your account is paid in full.
If you still owe tuition after the expiration date has passed, you will be assessed a late payment fee by the University Controller's Office (UCO).
To ensure you are not billed for your courses, you should go into OASIS and drop your classes before the end of drop/add period each term.
To qualify for an automatic deferment, you must be eligible to receive financial aid (including student loans) and/or scholarships. Deferments are automatically posted on OASIS if you:
- Have scholarships (including Bright Futures), or;
- Have a FAFSA on file at USF 10 business day before classes begin, and;
- Are a degree seeking student, and;
- Are enrolled in at least half-time in USF classes appropriate to your grade level and;
- Are meeting satisfactory academic progress (SAP) requirements (if your current SAP status is warning or probation, you will not be considered for a deferment until after the current term grades are included in your SAP calculation).
Check OASIS two weeks prior to the start of the semester to see if you qualify
