Starting in Summer/Fall
When booking your travel, we strongly recommend that your travel itinerary concludes at Tampa International Airport (TPA). However, you will likely arrive to the United States through another airport such as Miami International Airport (MIA), New York John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), or San Francisco International Airport (SFO). If your itinerary includes a layover at another U.S. airport, such as the ones above, you should allow at least 3 or 4 hours for Customs and Immigration processing prior to your next flight time.
Travel Suggestion: Domestic U.S. carriers (such as Southwest Airlines or JetBlue Airways) may offer more competitive pricing for your flight to TPA once you arrive to the United States. You may want to compare prices for the flight from your port of entry to TPA.
Your Glo-Bull Beginnings Week program will be hosted at the Embassy Suites USF Hotel, where you will also be living for the week.
