Freshmen Applicants

Am I a Transfer Applicant?

If you have graduated from high school and attempted or earned 12 to 59 transferrable credits, USF considers you a lower-level transfer applicant. You are an upper-level transfer applicant if you have obtained 60+ transferrable credits. Before you apply, please determine whether you are a lower-level or upper-level transfer applicant and be sure to review the appropriate application requirements.

Applicants seeking a second bachelor's degree and former students returning to USF are not considered transfer applicants. If you fall into either of these categories, please review the specific requirements for each scenario.

Transient and non-degree seeking applicants are not considered transfers and are not required to submit an application through the Office of Admissions.
