Former USF Student Returning
A former USF student returning is any degree-seeking undergraduate student who has not earned his/her degree, who has not been enrolled at USF in any of the last three consecutive terms, and who wishes to re-enroll in the University. Otherwise, you are considered a continuing student and can still register.
If you are a former USF student and would like to be considered for readmission, you must meet the following requirements:
- Complete the application for admission and pay the $30.00 application fee
- Be eligible to return to the University of South Florida
- Be in good standing and eligible to return to the last institution attended as a degree-seeking student
- Have achieved a GPA of at least 2.0 as calculated by USF on a 4.0 scale on all college-level academic courses attempted at institution(s) attended since last enrolled at USF
If you have previously enrolled at USF and were academically dismissed at the end of your last term of enrollment, you must file an ARC petition in conjunction with your application for admission
If you have attended one or more institutions since your last enrollment, you are required to send official transcripts* of all coursework attempted at the other institution(s) to the Admissions Office. Acceptability of transfer credits toward completion of USF degree programs will be determined by the college of the student's major.
*Note: If you have completed coursework at USF, it is not necessary to submit official copies of your USF transcript to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
If you are a former USF student returning to USF who has been readmitted, you are not required to participate in Orientation. It is, however, strongly suggested that you attend our Orientation, as it will provide you with important university, academic, financial aid, and student affairs information specific to the Sarasota-Manatee campus. Once admitted, all students should make a Newly Admitted Student Appointment with their advisor to review program requirements and select classes for registration.
Transient Students and Non-degree Seeking
Transient students and non-degree seeking students are not considered former students returning. These students who wish to enter as degree-seeking students must file an application with the Office of Undergraduate Admissions prior to the deadline listed on the transfer admissions website.
Second Bachelors Degree
If you are a former student who has earned a baccalaureate degree at USF more than three terms ago or a student who earned a baccalaureate degree at another institution and now desire to attend to USF to earn a second bachelor's degree, you are required to submit an application for admission. A $30 application fee is required. NOTE: If your intent is to meet prerequisites or to raise your postsecondary GPA for graduate or professional school, you should apply as a non-degree seeking student, not for a second bachelor's degree.
