What you’ll get credit for

  • Any university level (for example, UC or CSU transferable) course from a regionally accredited college or university earned with a C- or higher will transfer to USF.
  • Remedial or vocational courses, graduate coursework, or non-university level courses are not transferable to USF.
  • There is no limit to the total number of credits that can be transferred in; however, all students must take at least one course in each Core Curriculum area and complete 44 semester units at USF to satisfy the minimum residency requirement.
  • Once you’ve been admitted to USF, you’ll receive a degree evaluation and consult with a faculty advisor so that you know exactly how many remaining credits you’ll need to earn at USF for your degree.
