FUSE is USFSM’s guaranteed admission program that creates a seamless degree path for students to earn an associate degree before transferring to any of the USF System institutions for a bachelor’s degree.

Students who apply and are enrolled in the FUSE program are placed on an established graduation pathway plan to ensure that courses taken apply to their associate degree and successfully transfer towards a USF System bachelor’s degree. With academic advising provided from both institutions at their regional college, FUSE students will be ensured of the appropriate degree path, meeting all requirements, earning their associate degree in a timely manner and guaranteed admission to the USF System.

Additionally, to help ease the transition to USF, FUSE students will also be engaged in activities on their selected USF System campus, including a specially designed orientation session at the outset of the program and ongoing general student involvement in social activities while they are enrolled in their community colleges.
