USF Summer ACE

Program Overview 

Welcome to Summer ACE 2019 at USF!

The University of South Florida would like to invite you to an exciting opportunity focused on introducing out-of-state, international, and select Florida students to the rigors and joys of being a USF Bull.

The Summer Academic and Cultural Engagement Program (ACE) is designed to facilitate a purposeful transition from high school to college for new incoming freshmen. The five week ACE program consists of one week of orientation followed by four weeks of academic coursework with the final week studying away with your professors.  The ACE program's unique model provides an introduction to the culture of USF, the city of Tampa, and gives students a study away experience their first semester!

With over 120 freshmen, ACE is founded in the principles of individualized student success by pairing six credits of academic coursework towards your major with opportunities to get involved in social, college based, leadership, and service activities. This program is your chance to start "Running with the Bulls" around the globe.

Study Abroad Locations:
