Academic Foundations

SLS 2901

Welcome! Our goal is to equip students for academic and personal success at University of South Florida and beyond. We're glad you're here!

Making the transition from high school or from another institution to a major research university is both exciting and challenging. Foundations of Interdisicplinary Knowledge and Inquiry, Academic Foundations, and Academic Transitions seminar courses are designed to support students during this time of adjustment and acclimation.

On this site, you can learn more about our course offerings for First Year Students and Transfer Students.

We are proud of our transitional academic programs, and we hope our courses will become a valuable beginning to your college experience at the University of South Florida!

Students can register themselves for our courses through MyUSF. We recommend that you meet with your advisor prior to registration. Meeting with an advisor ensures that you are taking the appropriate courses for your degree each term, and will keep you on the most efficient path towards graduation.
