Did you know that USF offers one of the lowest tuition rates in the country? It’s true! We have been nationally recognized for our affordability and value by many outside organizations, including Kiplinger’s Personal Finance and U.S. News & World Report.

Tuition and Fees

Tuition and fees are based on a number of factors, including residency and the type of housing chosen. Even if you live out of state, our costs are often competitive with the in-state rates at your local university.

USF Scholarships

There are many scholarship opportunities available to students at USF. Graduate students can qualify for assistantships which help to lower the general cost of attendance. There are also various scholarships offered by the USF Foundation, which are privately funded and require a separate application.


Financial Aid

Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) allows you to be automatically considered for federal, state and university financial aid programs. Don't delay! To be considered for the most types of aid possible, be sure to submit your FAFSA by USF’s priority deadline.

Your financial aid award offer will list the estimated cost of attendance for one academic year at USF. Your letter will also outline the total amount of aid you will receive during the academic year, including scholarships, grants, loans and work-study.
