- If you completed all four years of high school at a U.S. institution, you will need to fill out our Student Self-Reported Academic Record.

For additional information about the awarding process, please visit Freshman Scholarship Requirements & Timeline. All scholarships are awarded on a funds-available basis to students who have been admitted to USF.
The USF Green & Gold Presidential, USF Green & Gold Directors and USF Green & Gold Scholars Waiver Awards are not stackable. Students will receive the highest award for which they qualify within the awarding timeline. All Green & Gold awards are credited in the form of a partial out-of-state tuition waiver; exact award amounts vary based on the number of credits in which a student enrolls each term. Students who are non-residents will receive their scholarship in the form of a waiver. The USF non-resident waiver award will cover up to the full amount offered by The Office of Admissions as long as it does not exceed the non-resident fee amount and is not covered by any other resources. Students should refer to their award notification received from The Office of Admissions to know the maximum waiver they may be eligible to receive per semester. The waiver does not pay towards resident tuition and other fees.
