Step 6: Complete Webtrack Advising and Directed Self Placement test

Webtrack Advising is our online class registration process for first-time students. It will guide you through the online class registration process and explain which classes to register for.

  • Watch the advising tutorials (30–45 minutes)
    Starting May 1, go to and select your school/college (listed in your admission letter) from the side menu to watch the advising video tutorials. You'll learn about graduation requirements, our Core Curriculum, placement tests, and more.

    As you're going through the videos, keep a list of courses you'll need to register for so you'll be ready for registration. Be sure to also watch the video for your specific major.
  • Take the Directed Self Placement for your Rhetoric (RHET) classes (about 90 minutes)
    This self assessment will help you determine which Rhetoric (RHET) class to sign up for. We'll post the link on this page and email it to you in May. For any questions about the DSP, please contact You do not need to take the DSP if: 
    • Your acceptance letter indicated that you will be completing Academic English for Multilingual Students (AEM) courses at USF
    • You've been accepted into the Honors College
    • You are a Sacramento VANAP nursing student
  • Complete the Webtrack quiz (5 minutes)
    After watching the Webtrack videos, you must pass a quiz to be cleared for class registration. The quiz is available now. 

    If you do not pass the Webtrack quiz, you will be unable to register for classes because you will have a hold on your student account that prevents you from registering. This hold is removed after you complete and pass the Webtrack quiz.
  • Sign up for a virtual advising appointment with your faculty adviser
    You will receive an email from your academic faculty adviser to invite you to sign up for an appointment (phone, video, or email) to review and discuss the classes you have registered for. It’s important for you to register for classes before your scheduled appointment with your faculty adviser. If necessary, they will recommend course adjustments during the appointment.

Deadline: The Webtrack videos and quiz are available now. You should view all the Webtrack videos and take the Directed Self Placement (plus any placement tests required for your major) before class registration opens on June 2.
