Transfer Traditional


*If you are attending Orientation for Spring 2021, please visit this link for your specific information regarding your sessions and other important information.*


Congratulations on choosing the University of South Florida to continue the pursuit of your degree!

Our Transfer Traditional sessions are designed specifically for the diverse transfer student population at USF. These sessions showcase the broad range of opportunities available to students at our global research university. Our research shows that transfer students are looking for the full university experience, and are eager to engage with the academic and co-curricular experiences available to students. The Transfer Traditional session is highly interactive and builds a connection between you and the University.

For students planning to live on campus for the Spring semester, the official Housing and Residential Education opening is (TBD). If you would like to move in earlier than this date, you can move in on (TBD). However, if you would like to do this you must log in to the housing portal using your NetID and password and submit an Early Arrival Request Form and pay any additional associated fees. If you do not plan to live on campus during your college experience, please begin planning for any housing accommodations you might need.

Once you have completed and paid for your Orientation reservation, you can log back in at any time using your NetID and password to download your confirmation page and parking permit. Your confirmation page will include detailed information about the session and necessary arrival details, including a parking permit. Please note, parking permits will not be emailed to you prior to session.

Be sure to continue checking your USF email, as you will receive additional details to prepare you for your arrival prior to Orientation. Do not hesitate to reach out to our office by calling 813-974-3060 or emailing us at with any questions you have.
