You may apply to USF as early as July of your senior year in high school. Admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis beginning mid-November. Applications are considered for the spring, summer and fall semesters.
First-year students who submit a complete application and all required application materials by Dec. 1 will have the best chance of admission. Applying after Dec. 1 may limit your choice of campus or semester start date.
Students have different dates and deadlines to track based on their applicant type. Review our admission requirements and deadlines for domestic first-year students or international first-year students to help you submit your application.
