Application Requirements

Am I a Freshman?

If you have not graduated from high school, the State of Florida considers you a freshman, regardless of the amount of college credit you may have earned through dual enrollment, AP or IB coursework while in high school. Thus, even though you may have sophomore or junior standing once you enroll and your credits are transferred, USF will review your application for admission as a freshman and consider you for all freshman admission scholarships. You also are considered a freshman if you graduated from high school and have attempted less than 12 college credits.
