HINTS for Step 1 Applying to the Graduate School
End Show
  • START EARLY! You should start the application
    process at least one month prior to the
    application deadline (at least two months prior
    if you are applying for Doctoral Programs).
  • Near the end of the application, FACTS.org will
    instruct you to mail your supporting documents
    (explained in step 3) to the Graduate School.
    PLEASE NOTE The College of Nursing is a Direct
    Receipt Program. You should NOT mail the
    documents to the Graduate School. Instead you
    should mail the documents to
  • USF College of Nursing
  • 12901 Bruce B. Downs Blvd., MDC 22
  • Attn  Nursing Graduate Admissions
  • Tampa, FL 33612
  • In order to complete the Graduate School
    application, you should have the following
    documents ready
  • Name and Phone Number of an Emergency Contact
  • Documents to verify Florida Residency (if
    claiming Florida Residency) including
  • Voter Registration Card

HINTS for Step 2 Applying to the College of
Nursing
End Show
  • If you try step 2 immediately after completing
    step 1 it will not work. A U-number is required
    in order to submit the College of Nursing
    application. Individuals who have completed step
    1 (applied to the Graduate School) will receive
    an email from USF on how to access their U-number
    within 48 hours. Once a U-number is established,
    it may take an additional 48 hours for the USF
    system to upload to the Nursing system.
    Therefore, individuals should allow up to 4 days
    after applying to the Graduate School before
    attempting to login/apply to the College of
    Nursing.

HINTS for Step 3 Submitting Supporting
Documentation
End Show
  • Hints for Masters applicants
  • Not all schools are willing to send official
    transcripts directly to the student.  If this is
    the case, you must submit proof of transcript
    request in your packet.
  • Hints for Doctoral applicants
  • If you have a copy of the test scores sent to you
    from ETS, this will serve as evidence of the GRE.
    Alternatively, if your GRE shows on your
    transcripts, this is also acceptable.
  • Hints for International applicants
  • All coursework and degrees completed outside the
    United States require a course by course
    evaluation from an approved evaluating agency. 
    The foreign transcript evaluation services
    approved by the USF Graduate School can be found
    at http//www.grad.usf.edu/graduate-admissions-Fo
    reign-Transcript-Evaluation.asp.  Please note
    that the Florida Board of Nursing maintains its
    own list of approved evaluating agencies.  The
    Florida Board of Nursing approved agency list can
    be found at http//www.doh.state.fl.us/mqa/nursin
    g/nur_foreign.html.  Transcript evaluations must
    be received at the College of Nursing in their
    original sealed envelopes by the deadline.
  • International applicants must meet the Graduate
    School requirements for the TOEFL. For a list of
    Graduate School requirements for the TOEFL, see
    http//www.grad.usf.edu/graduate-admissions-checkl
    ist.asp.
