Summer ACE

Cost & Financial Aid

ACE Financial Aid

Financial Aid is available for ACE. Students looking to apply for aid during ACE will need to fill out the 2018-2019 FAFSA (for Summer Aid) in addition to the 2019-2020 form (for Fall/Spring). You can find more details about completing a FAFSA and financial aid at USF here.  If you have questions about your financial aid eligibility, please contact the Financial Aid Office at - (813) 974-4700.

The goal of the Summer ACE program is to provide worthwhile experiences for students at minimal cost. In doing so we use our budget to pay down the costs of Studying Away for all students. Below we have included the cost for a traditional summer student for comparison purposes. As you can see ACE offers an amazing opportunity to take the same amount of credits and study away for close to the same price as spending six weeks on campus.

The below prices includes the cost for Break Stay.  In partnership with USF Housing all ACE students that will be living on campus during the Fall will be signed up for Break Stay to stay/move into their fall housing assignment prior to leaving on their study away.  ACE students moving to a different room/residence hall for the fall and spring, will move into their new space on August 3rd, the day before they travel.  Upon returning from travel students will be able to return to their housing assignment or leave their belongings on campus between semesters and travel home or elsewhere.  Summer B students who do not sign up for Break Stay are required to move out on August 3rd and then move back to campus at the beginning of their fall contract on August 22nd.  

*We are working diligently to finalize the prices for 2019.  Please use the below information as estimates and we will update as we finalize travel costs and our campus partners finalize their 2019-2020 pricing.  Costs with * are based on Summer 2018 prices.
