The Judy Genshaft Honors College actively recruits students who have demonstrated
academic excellence through high test scores and high school GPA. Students admitted
to USF who have at least a 31 ACT or 1400 SAT and a 4.0 recalculated USF GPA will be automatically accepted into the Judy Genshaft Honors College.
The recalculated USF GPA is often lower than your high school’s calculation. For that
reason, we strongly encourage all students to apply, regardless of your high school GPA. Judy Genshaft Honors College acceptance emails
and letters are sent a few weeks after USF acceptance materials.

experiences. We want students who bring a sense of curiosity, enthusiasm, and creativity

will immerse themselves in all that we have to offer.
