Questions? Current students, please contact me during my online Teams hours. Links
posted in our MS BAIS Canvas group. Prospective students, please contact me at email@example.com.
COVID-19 Update: The college shares student, parent and staff concerns about Covid-19. Program directors
are working with college and university administration and International Student Services
be prepared for the Spring 2021 and Fall 2021 starting terms. Each spring 2021 in-person
class will have a corresponding online class, giving students a choice of formats
and allowing the department to be responsive to the Covid situation in Tampa. Please
contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
When it's time to register for classes, all new students will have registration holds in place. International students can
send a copy of their visa for USF (send to email@example.com) to remove the hold or request online course registration. Domestic students can
send an email noting that they are local and don't need a visa. As a note to international
students with i-20s. Your i-20 will have a major listed as something like "computer
systems analysis /analyst" - this is fine for our MS BAIS program.
GA positions - General Info: Many students have questions about scholarships and graduate assistant positions.
U.S. universities have relatively few graduate scholarships available. Scholarship
opportunities will be emailed to all incoming students. Most graduate students fund
their tuition privately or receive a GA /TA position on-campus. The FAQ has more information
on those positions. When applications are open for GA positions, current and incoming
students will be notified via email. International students will need to send a copy
of their visa before being considered for a position. Note: there are few positions
compared to the number of applications received. PLEASE, do not contact individual
faculty members or department chairs about GA positions; all GA hiring is centralized.
GA positions Spring / Fall 2021: Spring positions have been filled. I'll email all current and incoming students
when we are accepting positions for the fall term. You can also look for jobs on-campus
at our Career website at https://www.usf.edu/career-services.
Internship Update! We are currently working with International Student Services to add a new fall internship
class. This will allow students to participate in an internship (CPT) after one
semester on-campus. We'll keep you posted!
