USF Sarasota-Manatee speeds up admissions process for freshmen

CLC Meeting

SARASOTA, Fla. (Aug. 5, 2015) – USF Sarasota-Manatee next week will host “Instant Decision Days” for prospective freshmen for the 2015-2016 academic year.

Instead of waiting up to two weeks to find out whether admission to the university has been granted, students can obtain instant decisions from admissions counselors.

For three days next week, Aug. 10-12, university admissions’ staff will be on hand to meet prospective freshmen to determine eligibility for “on-the-spot” admission decisions.

To participate, students must visit to apply for admission then contact the Admissions office to set up an appointment. To make an appointment, email or call (941) 359-4330 and ask to speak with a counselor.

Prospective students must to apply for admission at least one day prior to their appointments. Appointment times for each Instant Decision Day are between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

On the day of their appointments, students must bring copies of their high school transcripts plus copies of their ACT and/or SAT scores, or already have them submitted to Admissions beforehand. Instant acceptance isn’t binding on students.

A few freshmen slots for the upcoming fall semester remain open, but prospective students must act quickly to be considered for admission. Classes begin Aug. 24.
