Prospective students can join the Judy Genshaft Honors College through one of three different admission processes: First Time in College (FTIC), Transfer, or Current USF Student.
FIRST TIME IN COLLEGE (FTIC) ADMISSION
First Time in College (FTIC) admission is for high school seniors actively applying
for general admission to the University of South Florida. It operates independently
from the general university admissions process. Students are encouraged to familiarize
themselves with the Honors FTIC admission process in August of their senior year in
high school, as both USF and Judy Genshaft Honors College enrollment typically commence
in the Fall semester.
To be eligible for the Judy Genshaft Honors College, students must first apply to the University of South Florida. Then, they must also submit an Honors FTIC application. If admitted to the Judy Genshaft Honors College, students must then confirm their spot in the college.
Transfer admission is for students who have already graduated from high school and
are currently attending another college or university. The Honors admissions process
for transfers is separate from the general university admissions process. Because
transfer students may enter USF during the Spring, Summer, and Fall semesters, our
transfer application cycle opens periodically throughout the year.
To be eligible for the Judy Genshaft Honors College, students must first apply to the University of South Florida. All transfer students interested in joining the Judy Genshaft Honors College must then submit a transfer application.
CURRENT USF STUDENT ADMISSION
Current USF student admission is for students currently enrolled at USF who did not enter the Judy Genshaft Honors College when they initially enrolled. To best align the Honors curriculum with a current student's academic progression, these applications are typically limited to first-year students. Application for current USF students typically opens in February for entry into the college in the Fall semester of a students second year.
All current USF students interested in joining the Judy Genshaft Honors College must submit a current USF Student application.
