Student & Staff Resources

Register For Classes

Registration at USF is self-service via OASIS by time ticket appointment through Schedule Planner. Schedule Planner gives students the ability to plan coursework for the upcoming term(s), by providing various scheduling options that best fit busy lifestyles. Student Planner offers the ability to list block-out times for desired breaks, such as free time, work, or sports. This will allow students the ability to optimize course selections easily.

Apply For Graduation

Bachelor's, Master's, ED.S. Or Ph.D. Degree application for graduation and graduation survey must both be submitted online by the deadline listed in your respective catalog. Some academic colleges require earlier application; see your advising office. Use the Apply To Graduate link on the Student Menu in OASIS.

Banner ID & Web Reporting Access - Staff

A Banner ID is a prerequisite for Web Reporting System (WRS) and student record access. A Banner ID Request Form link is provided upon completion of the FERPA tutorial & quiz. Your accountable officer will designate the level of access you require on the form. The WRS lists reports created to derive data from Banner. Request access from Navigation training for new Banner users may be taken anytime.

Alternate Calendar & Non-Degree Enrollment

Please submit your Non-Degree application and non-refundable application fee online. You may also use this online form to make yourself eligible to register for alternate calendar courses. Please select USF and Non-Degree or a Graduate Certificate program when asked, "What is your intended program of study?" If you apply and do not attend, you may update your term of entry for up to two semesters, without reapplying.

Excess Hours Surcharge

In 2009, the Florida Legislature implemented Section 1009.286, Florida Statutes to encourage students to complete their baccalaureate degree as quickly and efficiently as possible. It established what is commonly referred to as an "Excess Credit Hour Surcharge."

Residency Reclassification

Residency for tuition purposes is defined by state law. The University must adhere to the criteria set forth in Florida School Code (SB-20E) Section 1009.21 Florida Statutes. This statute applies to all institutions of higher learning in Florida. Staff at the University of South Florida cannot make exception to the rules set forth by the state nor can staff make exceptions based on financial hardship or extenuating circumstances.

University Registrar Policies & Economic Data

The Office of the Registrar has a two-part mission: to support the University's teaching function by documenting the extent and quality of students' formal learning experiences and to provide quality service to students, faculty, staff and the general public in the creation, maintenance, and release of student academic records.

Senior Audit Program

Florida residents who are 60 years of age or older prior to the first day of classes in the term of registration may enroll on a space available basis in certain undergraduate and graduate courses without paying fees on the sixth day of the semester. For more information about the program and required forms, refer to the links on the right.


Waitlisting is a function that academic departments may employ to allow students to add themselves to a waitlist for a course that is full and/or closed. Once a student has waitlisted for a course section, he or she will receive notification via e-mail of 24 hours to register if a seat becomes available in that section. Waitlisted students are notified on a "first-come-first-serve" basis.
