Much of the application process can now be done via the Web; however, parts of the Web-application process still require that you mail certain pieces of information to USF. Complete application packets can be requested from USF and sent to your address.
In addition, many of the necessary forms can be printed as pdf documents. You will need to have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed.
