Overview


If you are interested in applying to be an exchange student, the first step is to visit the International Office at your home university. Students applying for the exchange program must apply through their home university's exchange coordinator to begin the process. USF will need AN OFFICIAL NOMINATION FROM YOUR HOME UNIVERSITY BEFORE YOU ARE ADMITTED TO USF.
You may not apply independently of your university for the exchange program.

Please read the following instructions to ensure your application is complete and acceptable.
