After you apply . . .
If you've already applied to USF, you can check the status of your application. Please be aware that your application materials will be reviewed in Admissions and in the department. If you have not done so already, and even if you have sent your transcripts and test scores, please upload a copy of all the documents required for your program (including your test scores reports) through your online application. This can expedite the processing of your application.
Please be aware that some programs review applications and make their decisions within a few weeks of receiving all required documents. Others wait until after the application deadline has passed so they can review all applications at the same time. Please consult the program director or website to determine what method they use and when you should expect to receive a decision.
