As a home schooled student, you must meet the same admission criteria as your peers graduating from traditional high schools, including: NOTE: Simply meeting minimum GED requirements does not guarantee admission. Department of Education's Department of Civil Rights, the University of South Florida is unable to consider a student's disability when making an initial admission decision.
Many GED recipients are encouraged to earn the Associate in Arts degree at a public Florida community college prior to transferring to USF. If denied admission, students with disabilities may be able to appeal to the Faculty Committee on Student Admissions to substitute particular coursework for the standard requirements.
Sending your scores each time you take the SAT or ACT can benefit you by allowing us to consider you for all available enrollment-related opportunities.
For admission and scholarship purposes we will concord any Original SAT scores to the Redesigned SAT scale; we will also superscore all administrations of the SAT.
If you took the Original SAT and want to understand how your scores will concord to the new scale, please refer to the SAT Score Converter.
Prior to that time, we must return any disability documentation to the applicant.
USF requires that students have completed two units (two years) of instruction in a foreign language to be considered for admission.
