Freshmen Applicants

Am I a Graduate Applicant?

If you have earned a bachelor's degree (or U.S. Equivalency), or will have earned a bachelor's degree prior to enrollment at USF, and are seeking entrance to a master's, doctoral, education specialist, or graduate certificate program, you are considered a graduate applicant (in some countries this is called "postgraduate" status). Current graduate students who wish to enter a new graduate degree program upon completion of their current degree program (i.e. enter a Ph.D. program upon completing the master's degree) also are considered graduate applicants for the second program.
