Information for New Students

Visit the College of The Arts

If you are interested in attending the USF College of The Arts, stop by in person for a visit. This is not required for admission, but it is a great opportunity to tour the studios, meet with an advisor, and speak with faculty and staff. To set up a college tour, contact Reginald Joseph at (813) 974-4349. Please plan on scheduling a tour between the hours of 9:00 am and 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday.



Once accepted into a degree program, you must attend both USF and College of The Arts orientations. This is a requirement for all undergraduate, transfer, and graduate students.
