The Application Process

Who May Apply

All students enrolled in the USF Morsani College of Medicine are eligible to apply for financial assistance. The analysis of each student's financial strength will determine the best source of aid for each individual and achieve equity in its distribution.

When to Apply

Morsani College of Medicine Funds: The Office of Financial Aid makes final commitments of the Morsani College of Medicine funds in July of each year. Students who submit the FAFSA and MorsaniCollege of Medicine Financial Aid Application by March 1st will receive priority for awards for that academic year. Applications received after the deadline will receive an award from the Morsani College of Medicine only if funds are available.

Federal Direct, Unsubsidized (UFL) and Federal Direct Graduate/Professional PLUS (Grad PLUS) Loans/Private Alternative Loans (ALP): Our office will accept applications for the UFL, GradPLUS and ALP loans up to thirty days before the end of the loan period. The Office of Financial Aid will process your application materials whenever you submit them to the office. Keep in mind that it usually takes two weeks for total processing time.  The goal of the Office of Financial Aid is to prepare financial aid requests in order to forward them to be funded within one week of receipt. This will vary during peak workload periods during the year.
