The factors listed below will help you determine if you meet the general eligibility requirements for federal Financial Aid. For more information, visit the official FAFSA website or contact the University of San Francisco Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.
In order to be eligible for most federal financial aid programs, you must:
• Have a high school diploma or the recognized equivalent
• Meet other standards established by your state and approved by the U.S. Department of Education
• Be enrolled (or accepted for enrollment) as a regular student working towards a degree in an eligible program
• Be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen
• Have a valid Social Security number
• Be in good standing on all prior Federal Student Loans
• Make satisfactory academic progress towards a degree
• Sign a statement of educational purpose and a certification statement indicating that you are not in default on a student loan nor owe an overpayment on a grant (can be found on the FAFSA)
• Sign a certification statement indicating that you are not in default on a student loan nor owe an overpayment on a grant (can be found on the FAFSA)
• Register with the Selective Service System, if required
• Never have been convicted under a federal or state law of the sale or possession of illegal drugs (a drug-related conviction does not necessarily make a student ineligible for aid). A student with a prior drug-related conviction must complete a worksheet to determine if the conviction affects aid eligibility.
