Step 4: Submit Final Documents

All students are required to provide the following documents as soon as they are available. These documents should be sent to USF directly from your school or testing agency.

First-Year Students

  • Final high school transcripts. Even if you used unofficial transcripts in your application, we need your final official transcripts if you intend to enroll at USF. Your official transcripts should be sent to USF directly from your high school. Your counselor can email your final transcript to or use a platform like Naviance, Maia, SCOIR, etc., if your school uses one.
  • Official SAT or ACT scores (if unofficial scores were used for admission purposes). Your official test scores are required even if you applied test-optional so that we can properly place you in your first-year classes. If you used unofficial SAT/ACT scores to satisfy our English Language proficiency requirements, you will need to submit official test scores before we can issue an I-20. If the pandemic has prevented you from taking the test, we'll waive this requirement for fall 2021.
  • Final A-Level, IB or other external examination results
  • Final AP exam scores
  • Official college or university transcripts from any institution where credit was awarded (if applicable)

Transfer Students:

  • High school transcript or copy of diploma. Proof of high school graduation is required for all incoming transfer students.
  • AP, IB, or A-Level exam score reports (if applicable)
  • Updated official transcripts for any college work not reflected on the degree evaluation at the time of admission. If you have college classes currently in progress, USF won’t be able to enter those credits until you submit your final grades. After you finish your classes, please have an official transcript sent with updated grades.

How to submit your transcript
Your school(s) can send your transcripts electronically to, through platforms like Naviance, Maia, Scoir, etc., or physical copies can be sent to:

AP/IB/College credit:
To see how your AP/IB/College credit might transfer to USF, please visit our AP/IB/College credit page. We also recommend that you check your degree evaluation, which will show how your AP/IB/College credit may have transferred to USF credit. To view your degree evaluation, log into the myUSF dashboard, click on the Banner Self Service (Student) box, then Student Records → Degree Evaluation. Transfer students, please see Step 7 for more details on transferring credit.
