SARASOTA, Fla. (April 19, 2016) – USF Sarasota-Manatee next week will host “Instant Decision Days” for prospective freshmen for the Summer 2016 and Fall 2016 semesters.

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 five days next week, April 25-29, USFSM 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 submit an application at least two days before the event 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 an admissions counselor.

Appointment times for each Instant Decision Day are between 2 and 5 p.m.

On the day of their appointments, students must bring officially sealed 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.

Freshmen slots for the upcoming summer and fall semesters remain open, but prospective students must act quickly to be considered for admission. Summer classes start May 16. The fall semester begins Aug. 22.

Have questions? Call (941) 359-4330 to speak with a counselor.
