Financial Aid for Graduate Students at USD

One of University of San Diego’s highest priorities is to ensure that sufficient tuition and financial aid support is available to all eligible students. The first step in applying for aid is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). In order to begin your application you will need to create an FSA ID, which is a username and password that has replaced the Federal Student Aid PIN. READ: How to create your FSA ID (pdf).
