Financial Aid

While the Office of Financial Aid (OFA) staff answers questions related to financial aid, the One Stop Student Center (OSSC) staff answers financial aid questions and provides many services related to several different USD departments — Financial Aid, Student Accounts and Registrar — all in one convenient place! The OSSC is located in the Hahn University Center, Room 126, or can be reached by calling (619) 260-2700.

Students should use the Torero Hub tab on their MySanDiego portal, which links to the My Financial Aid page, for quick access to detailed information, forms, guides and alerts for unmet requirements (red flags) from the Office of Financial Aid.

Free informational guides are updated annually to help students and parents understand the financial aid system, and to apply/reapply early for important priority deadlines. See resources on the OFA website for the guides and other important information.
