Your USF Non-Degree student application with payment of the non-refundable application fee can be submitted online. You may also use this online form to make yourself eligible to register for an alternate calendar course. Remember to select University of South Florida (USF) and Non-Degree listed alphabetically or a Graduate Certificate program when asked, "What is your intended program of study?"

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 EISSecurity@usf.edu. Navigation training for new Banner users may be taken anytime.

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.

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."

Register For Classes

Registration at USF is self-service via OASIS by time ticket appointment.

Waitlisting

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.

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.

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.
