Non-Degree Student

Apply Online as a Non-Degree-Seeking Student

As an accepted student at USF, you may apply to transfer a limited number of hours taken as a non-degree student into your degree program, with a maximum of 12 semester hours taken at the graduate level.

If you are a current graduate student, you do NOT complete the online admission application.

However, if you are not currently enrolled at the USF, or you have not attended USF in the past two semesters, you must apply to the USF Tampa campus as a non-degree seeking student. Expect this process to take two - four weeks.

To apply for admission to USF, you must:

  • Complete the online application for admission.
  • Pay the non-refundable $30 application fee.
  • Provide your official transcript from each college or university you attended, to include military credits and CLEP scores. Please note that review of your application will be expedited if you send your transcripts electronically.
  • International students will need to provide additional documentation.

Contact the USF Office of the Registrar with questions about the application.
