Your USF Non-Degree student application with payment of the non-refundable application fee can be submitted online. You may also use this online form to make yourself eligible to register for an alternate calendar course.

Foreign nationals must comply with the State University System's Insurance requirements by providing proof of insurance to the USF Student Health Services Office prior to registration.

And foreign nationals presently in the United States may submit documentation of their current immigration status to the particular USF campus where you plan to attend.

Please be advised a maximum of 14 credit hours may be applied to an Undergraduate program, or 12 credit hours to a Graduate program.

Because of demand for some courses, Non-Degree students may only register during the first week of the semester in College of Business Administration courses and only with college/departmental permission.

The non-refundable application processing fee for Non-Degree seekers is $30. You can also enroll as a Non-Degree student in a Graduate Certificate program for which this online application can be used; however, their non-refundable application fee is also $30 and departmental approval is required.

You cannot apply Non-Degree seeking if you have previously been denied USF undergraduate admission or if you previously attended USF but have not been awarded your degree. Do not apply as a Non-Degree-seeker unless you are in good academic standing with your last institution or if you are already admitted to USF as a degree-seeker and have not earned a degree from another institution.

IMPORTANT: Non-Degree applicants are bound by the University’s regulations concerning completeness and accuracy of application information. Making false or fraudulent statements regarding prior conduct may result in disciplinary action, invalidation of credits earned and registration eligibility rescinded. Should any information change prior to registration, Non-Degree applicants must notify the USF Office of the Registrar. The University may refuse admission to a student whose record shows previous misconduct not in the best interest of the University community.
