USF students may qualify for financial aid for a summer abroad program as long as they are in good academic standing during the spring semester immediately prior to the summer term. Students must enroll in at least three units of credit in order to be eligible for financial aid. Summer aid is available through private or Graduate PLUS loans. USF students must submit a FAFSA application for the 2012–13 academic year in order to be considered for financial aid. USF students are also required to submit an Intent to Enroll (ITE) form for Summer 2013 to the USF School of Law Office of Financial Aid as soon as possible but no later than April 1st, 2013.

Students visiting from other ABA-accredited law schools may qualify for financial aid if their law school enters into a consortium agreement with USF. USF certifies the amount of funding needed for the summer program. The visiting students' home schools are responsible for determining the exact amount of aid awarded to their respective students. Consortium agreements should be submitted by the visiting student's financial aid office to the USF School of Law Office of Financial Aid as soon as the visiting student is admitted to the USF summer abroad program but no later than April 15, 2013.
