myBullsPath is a one-stop student onboarding portal that allows students to complete tasks in one place (like registering for orientation or applying for housing). The portal is designed for newly admitted undergraduate students, both domestic and international, for all three USF locations (Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Sarasota-Manatee).


Your USF NetID serves as your user ID at the university and provides you access to a variety of resources, including email, registration, Canvas, and more.

Email Access

All admitted students will be assigned a USF email address to be used for all official university communication. Your assigned email address will be hosted through Office 365, which is available to all USF students. Access your email and learn more about Office 365 for students at the links below.

Canvas and Learning Management

As a student at USF, you will use a learning management system called Canvas to help you access your online course content. Explore helpful information about how to use Canvas and learn about successful online collaboration.

Course Registration

Before the beginning of each semester, you will need to register for your courses using OASIS, USF's Online Access Student Information System. Learn the basics of OASIS, search for courses, view the academic calendar, and see the latest updates from the Registrar’s office.
