Freshmen Applicants

Am I a Freshmen Applicant?

If you have not graduated from secondary school or completed your secondary school examinations, the State of Florida considers you a freshman, regardless of the amount of college credit you may have earned through dual enrollment, AP or IB coursework, or external examinations while in secondary school.

Thus, even though you may have sophomore or junior standing once you enroll and your credits are transferred, USF will review your application for admission as a freshman and consider you for all freshman admission scholarships. You also are considered a freshman if you have completed your secondary school studies and have attempted fewer than 12 college credits.
