Orientation is mandatory for newly admitted USF students.


There are NO prerequisite courses required for the College of Public Health Undergraduate degree.

Transferable Courses from Community College

  • Medical Terminology
  • Nutrition
  • Health Education


Once accepted to USF, you have the opportunity to meet with a public health advisor to learn about the college, the major and create a class schedule. When you are pre-advised you have the privilege of registering for classes before your orientation session.

Contact Your Advisor

Contacting your advisor prior to orientation will allow orientation to move in a more timely manner and give you one on one advising. ALL students in the College of Public Health MUST attend Orientation and the College's overview regardless if you have met with an advisor prior to orientation.
