We're here to help!

The USF Health Office of Financial Aid provides service to ALL students in the USF Health community. We work diligently to assist students as they pursue their educational endeavors. With expert and proficient staff, the USF Health Financial Aid Office works in conjunction with University Scholarship and Financial Aid Services to play a pivotal role in student’s retention, progression and graduation.

Our goal is to help students who are enrolled at USF Health navigate the financial aid process, secure adequate funding for their educational expenses, as well as provide debt management counseling and financial planning. The USF Health Financial Aid Office partners with other departments/colleges and programs to provide informational sessions to prospective and current students and their families.

NEW PRIVACY RESTRICTIONS

Recent federal policy changes restrict what financial aid information we can discuss with you and/or your parents over the phone and via email, and you are now required to present a photo ID when you come to the office. Additional authentication questions will be asked each time you contact our office. These restrictions are in place at the federal level to protect your personal financial information and assure that only you have access to your financial aid record.

In an effort to reduce loan debt, the financial wellness program will work directly with the USF Health Office of Financial Aid to implement Student Debt Letters. Debt letters will provide a realistic look at the possible monthly loan repayment amounts based on a student’s current borrowing history. Student debt letters have been proven to boost financial literacy, reduce blind borrowing, increase academic behavior, and avoid delinquency and defaulting on federal student loans.

Student Debt Letters will include:

  • An estimate of the total amount of student loans taken out by the student
  • Potential payoff for loans the student has taken out or range of the total payoff amount
