I applied to the school, back when I started it was easier to get in. My grades were not the best in high school, and neither was my SAT score, and they have a program that helps get kids into college who would not be able to based on their grades. The kids are put on probationary status for the summer and need to earn a certain gpa (I think like a 3.0 at the time) in order to be admitted for the fall. The university will work with students to help get them in, but just be warned USF is raising their standards for admissions and it is now getting difficult to get into.

Getting into this university was simple. Actually getting all of your paper work, applications, etc... completed and turned into the right people was a pain in the ass! I had the absolute most difficult time getting everything in order for me to attend classes on the first day, and I started well in advanced (about 6 months)! And calling the school to ask questions and get help is an extremely daunting task. The odds of speaking to someone that actually has an answer to your questions and knows what they're talking about is slim to none, and speaking to someone that isn't completely rude to you, is damn near impossible. The entire staff USF hires (everyone that works for USF, other than the actual teachers) are the most miserable, rudest group of people I've ever come across. What ever happened to southern hospitality? So basically getting in is simple, but if you can actually apply here and make it to the first day of classes, then you're in good shape!!
