At USF, every prospective student is assigned a personal admission counselor. That counselor can be reached by email, phone, cell phone, text messaging, or instant messaging. They are here to answer any questions you might have, or issues you have going through the admission checklist.
For a list of personal admission counselors and their contact information, click here.
Visit our campus to help ensure that USF is the best fit for your educational goals. We offer several options, and strongly encourage you to schedule a personal visit.
