Hello Future and New Bulls,

What an exciting time. As a transfer student, you have many things on your side: experience, knowledge, confidence, and most importantly coursework! Now it is time to make the  move on to USF and finish what you started at your previous institution.

Every single transfer student is unique, each with a different set of circumstances and past adventures. To us that makes you special, and loaded with potential to make a mark here. 

The Office of Transfer Student Success cares about transfer students. We have developed relationships with our in-state partners and created solutions for our private and out of state transfer institutions to engage in an organized, highly communicative process to support transitioning students. Transferring can be complex, so our mission is to provide you with a smooth transition. We encourage you to use this space as a resource for relevant policies and processes and for tips on how to progress, persist and be a successful USF student!

Be sure to connect with us for anything you may need. We also have listed many resources to help you in planning your move to USF, including advising, articulation assistance, and acclimating to Tampa.

Our goal is to help you make the most of your time and ensure your energy is well spent. Do not hesitate to reach out for assistance.
