New Student and Parent Toolkit


Welcome to the Bulls family! As you prepare to begin your next chapter here at USF, MyBullsPath will guide you through the important tasks that will ensure you are set up for success. Below you will find answers to some of our most asked questions regarding how to navigate MyBullsPath. Additionally, we are available to answer any questions you may have as you get ready for your first semester here at USF.

Each card in MyBullsPath has contact information listed so you can reach out if you need help.


What is MyBullsPath?

MyBullsPath is a personalized, one-stop student onboarding portal that allows students to complete tasks in one place. Because each student's journey to begin at USF looks different, MyBullsPath will help you prioritize the onboarding tasks relevant to you, such as registering for orientation and applying for housing.

How do I log in to MyBullsPath?

You can log in to MyBullsPath by visiting this website. You will need both your USF NetID and password to access the portal. Because you'll be checking MyBullsPath for updates, we recommend bookmarking the portal website.

What do the colored cards mean?

When you log in to MyBullsPath, you will see a series of "cards." Each card represents a task or series of tasks that you need to complete. The cards are color-coded based on priority to help you focus on the most important tasks first.

  • Green means you've completed the task

  • Red means you still need to complete the task

  • Yellow means the task is currently in progress

  • Gray means that while you will need to complete the task in the future, no action is currently needed

Some cards in MyBullsPath won’t change status color, rather they will provide a pathway to complete tasks in other systems. These informational cards may be required items and involve accessing another USF system for completion.  These cards may include:

  • Review Financial Aid and Scholarships

  • Complete Life Skills Modules/ AlcoholEDU and SAPU

  • View Tuition and Fees

  • Stay Connected

  • Utilize VA Education Benefits & Military Tuition Assistance

I completed a task — why is it still showing as incomplete on MyBullsPath?

There are three possible reasons why a card may be showing incomplete:

  1. MyBullsPath regularly refreshes to provide you with the most up-to-date status. While the system refreshes daily, it may take up to 24 hours for some cards to update.

  2. There may be a sub-item within the card needing completion. Once all items within a card are completed, the main card will change status color to green.

  3. An error may have occurred while submitting documents or completing a task.
    • To troubleshoot these items, please utilize the contact information on the card to inquire about your status.

    • If you have a technical issue (for example, you cannot upload a document, you get an error message is given, or your access is denied), please email the USF Information Technology Help Desk at

If I'm having technical issues with myBullsPath, how do I submit a help ticket?

USF Information Technology (IT) is available to assist you with any technical issues you may be having with MyBullsPath. To submit a ticket, please email with a brief description of the problem you are experiencing.

In addition to MyBullsPath, is there a standard set of tasks that I can view?

We recommend that you login to MyBullsPath so you can view your own personalized list of tasks and instructions. However, you can also view general checklists by student type.

Can I register for classes or make an advising appointment through MyBullsPath?

MyBullsPath does not provide access for advising appointment scheduling or course registration. If you would like to make an advising appointment, visit the Office of Undergraduate Studies. To learn more about course registration, visit the Office of the Registrar.  

Can parents/families access MyBullsPath?

Access to MyBullsPath requires a student’s NetID and password. We recommend parents and families view our student checklists
