Tuition Deferment

How to qualify for a Tuition Deferment

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 showing on OASIS, and;
  • Are a degree seeking student, and;
  • Are enrolled at least half-time in USF classes at 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

  • Choose 'Financial Aid', then
  • Select the appropriate aid year; then
  • Select 'My Requirements, Bookstore Authorizations and Deferments';
  • Review the 'Satisfied Requirements' section for approved deferments
