Life Skills for Student Success

Information for Families

If you are the family or guardian of an incoming student, your student will be required to complete the Life Skills for Student Success tutorial. To get your student off to a positive start, we want her/him to be prepared for success at USF. Areas that may present challenges revolve around alcohol and safety. Thus, we created Life Skills for Student Success, our modular, online educational program to help your student take a closer look at these issues in college.

All incoming students are expected to complete each module with a score of 80% or higher by midnight on the deadline date, with the exception of Sexual Assault Prevention which is not scored and simply must be completed.

Completion of all modules will take approximately four to five hours; thus, we strongly encourage your student to not delay in fulfilling this requirement. We believe that the information presented through this online educational program to be helpful in their transition to and success at USF.
