Non-Degree Seeking Students

Whether you want to test the waters of an undergraduate degree, experience graduate coursework, enhance your career or just take a course for fun, Summer@USF is for you.

If you would like to register for a summer course at the University of South Florida and are not enrolled in a degree or certificate program, you need to apply as a non-degree student. Summer@USF has an open-enrollment policy accessible to non-degree students. Credits earned in a summer session may count toward a USF degree if you apply and are accepted through the regular admission process.

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 and 14 at the undergraduate level. For specific information regarding transfer credit, please contact the college through which your major is offered. Most courses are transferable to other colleges and universities as well.

To apply as a non-degree student for summer, you must complete an application. Non-degree student registration for summer courses begins May 7, 2018. 

Review our Guide for Non-Degree Students for more information.

As a visiting student, you do not need to provide your transcripts, but you must file the appropriate applications and proof of residency. To learn more, visit the Office of the Registrar's website.

Please note USF's Immunization Policy requires that all students younger than 40 must submit acceptable proof of immunity to rubella to Student Health Services prior to registration for courses that meet on campus. Students born after December 31, 1956, must also submit proof of immunity to measles. To learn more, visit the Student Health Services website.
