  • USF's State Employee Waiver Form - All eligible state employees must submit USF's waiver form that is signed by the employee, the employee's supervisor and agency director. The Intent to Apply/Participation form will not be accepted in place of the actual USF tuition waiver. The form clearly states that the student needs to check with the University about filling out additional forms.
