Step 9: Complete Webtrack Advising

Webtrack Advising is our online class registration process for first-time students. Webtrack will provide you with valuable information on USF's academic policies and procedures, graduation requirements, placement tests, and major requirements. It will also guide you through the online class registration process and explain which classes to register for. Faculty will review your course selections and meet with you during New Student and Family Orientation.

  • Watch the advising tutorials
    Go to and select your school/college (yours will be listed in your admission letter) from the side menu to watch the advising video tutorials. Be sure to also watch the video for your specific major.
  • Take the Directed Self Placement for your Rhetoric (RHET) classes
    This quiz will help you determine which Rhetoric (RHET) class to sign up for. This exercise is meant to take only about an hour or so.

  • Complete the quiz
    After watching the Webtrack advising tutorial, you must pass a quiz to be cleared for class registration. Click on “Quiz” from the Webtrack menu. The quiz will be available starting January 6.
  • Get ready to register for classes
    Once you've passed the quiz, you'll be able to register for classes starting at 9 a.m. Pacific Time on January 13. For additional information on your specific major requirements, you can also reference the program page for your major. Try to gather a list of classes you'll need to register for in advance, so you can be ready to register on January 13.

During orientation, you will have the opportunity to meet with a faculty adviser during the "Orientation to Your Major" session. Your adviser will be happy to review your spring 2020 class schedule, and to answer any questions you might have about your schedule. Don't forget to register for orientation

Deadline: Webtrack videos are available now. You should complete the tutorial and quiz before class registration opens on Monday, January 13. Classes begin January 21.
