Admitted Student Checklist
Final Academic Credentials
You must submit official academic credentials (transcripts, diploma, or external exam results) before or upon arrival at USF. Failure to submit these documents can result in an AR Hold, preventing you from registering for future courses at USF.
Either official, sealed original documents or sealed, attested photocopies of original documents of previous international school records are acceptable. International students graduating from U.S. high schools should request that official transcripts be mailed directly to the USF Office of International Admissions. Students with foreign academic work are required to submit official copies of academic records in their original language of issue, along with a certified English translation.
Academic records should include all final and official:
- Secondary school records
- Official documents that confirm awarding of the Degree, Certificate or Diploma with the title and date. The Office of International Admissions will examine all records to determine if they are adequate and will inform applicants if additional records are required.
