Summer ACE

USF Summer ACE

Program Overview 

Welcome to ACE at USF!

The University of South Florida would like to invite you to an exciting opportunity focused on introducing out-of-area and international students to the rigors and joys of being a Bull.

The Summer Academic and Cultural Engagement Program (ACE) is designed to facilitate a purposeful transition from high school to college for new incoming freshmen. Through three weeks of academic courses and social activities on campus and one week abroad, ACE provides an introduction to the culture of USF, the city of Tampa, and gives students a study away experience their first semester!

With over 100 out of state and international freshmen, ACE is founded in the principles of student success by pairing six credits of academic coursework towards your major with opportunities to get involved in social, college based, leadership, and service activities. This unique program is your chance to start "Running with the Bulls."
