How We Make Decisions

Academic Success Predictors

Our data indicates that applicants meeting certain criteria are more likely to be successful at the University of South Florida, particularly in the freshman year.

These predictors, coupled with your GPA, test scores and other potential admission factors are integral to USF's evaluative process for freshman admissions.
