Welcome to the updated and improved Guaranteed Underwriting System (GUS), USDA’s automated underwriting system for submitting and processing Rural Development Single Family Housing Guaranteed Loans. GUS allows lenders to electronically process loan applications and submit those applications to the Agency.
It has been several years since GUS was updated. During that time, new IT, and security standards have been put in place for all government agencies. The new GUS will incorporate these requirements while upgrading the system, which improves USDA’s ability to serve its customers.
This manual contains step by step guidance on how to import a loan application in GUS. Included throughout this document are annotated screenshots of the system with steps for completing each application screen.
