At USF Sarasota-Manatee, we take a personal approach to helping our students succeed. Our Admissions and Academic Advisors are here to help you gain an individualized perspective on our academic programs, admissions process, and financial aid opportunities. We offer events where you can meet in small groups with the Academic Advisor responsible for your area of study to review course prerequisites, transcripts and other pertinent details of your program.
