Admissions

Overview

USF offers superb academics, world-class interdisciplinary research, distinguished faculty, a diverse student body, athletics and year-round sunshine. It's no wonder students come to USF from every state, every U.S. territory and more than 150 countries around the world.

While admission to USF is becoming increasingly competitive, the process for applying is simple. Applications are accepted for more than 100 undergraduate programs and 171 degree programs at the graduate, specialist and doctoral levels, including the doctor of medicine. USF also offers a number of continuing education options for adult and professional learners as well as distance learners interested in fully or partially online education programs.

With one of the lowest tuition rates in the country, USF is an outstanding value. Several forms of merit and need-based public and private financial aid are available, including loans, grants, scholarships and work-study opportunities. Specialized programs for veterans enrolled under the new G.I. Bill also are available.
