A Message From The Office of Graduate Admissions
Office of Financial Aid Services
Financial aid is important consideration for many students. Sometimes it can feel unnerving—it doesn’t have to be though. Our team of financial aid advisors and counselors are part of your USD Community and we are here to assist you.
As you begin to review your financial aid information and for a review of the financial aid process, we encourage you to start by reading the steps that are outlined in your “Tuition and Financial Aid” page located here in your Student Success Center. That information was written specifically with you in mind and to help simplify things as much as possible.
If you have questions after reviewing this process, please feel free to reach out. It is the mission of the Office of Financial Aid Services to provide financial assistance in an accurate, efficient and timely manner as well as to provide the best possible service. Once again, welcome! We look forward to working with you.”
