Transition

Family Checklist

We are thrilled that a member of your family has chosen to join the University of South Florida for their college experience. As a family member and supporter, you may be asking, “What’s next?” This Family Checklist serves as a tool for our newest USF family members to help the student in their family prepare for a successful transition to USF. The Family Checklist is divided into three sections: once admitted, post deposit, and prior to classes starting. The student in your family can access their USF Student Checklist here.
