Online Application Link


The University of South Florida has a $30 application fee that must be paid prior to acceptance.  This fee does not guarantee placement in a study abroad program, just non-degree seeking student standing at the University. 

After your application has been accepted, you will receive notification via email within 24-48 hours which will include information about how to activate your account. At that point, you will be able to go to and click "Activate your USF NetID" in order to go through the activation process.

After you have activated your NetID, you may return to the Education Abroad website and apply to an Education Abroad outgoing program using your USF Student NetID Login.  

IMPORTANT: After you get your USF NetID setup please wait until to day after 6am to login to USF Education Abroad site.  When logging in please click the "USF LOGIN" option.   If you still experience login issues after waiting a day, please contact the Education Abroad Office directly.
