Academics @ USF
The University of South Florida operates on a semester hour system with our semesters organized as follows:
- Fall (beginning in late August - ends in early December)
- Spring (beginning in early January - ends in early May)
- Summer (beginning in mid May - ends in early August)
Use the Academic Calendar for important dates including registration, drop/add deadlines, exam schedules, holidays and graduation.
USF also maintains a Cultural and Diversity Calendar for important religious and cultural dates to remember that may impact class attendance.
