Transfer Students

Welcome

Welcome to your new home! The University of South Florida is a leading transfer student destination in the state of Florida.

Whether you are transferring from a local community college or an out-of-state four-year institution, we are excited for you to be a new USF Bull. We know that you have at least some college completed already, which is why our Transfer Orientation Programs are designed with a variety of students in mind, from upperclass students to working adults with families.

Rest assured that we have taken the feedback of current USF students who transferred here to build a program that will meet your needs, answer your questions, and most importantly, prepare you to be successful at USF.

We encourage you to explore the Transfer Orientation section of our website by first selecting which type of orientation you would attend below. Not sure which program to attend?

We are looking forward to seeing you at Orientation!
