The process of getting into the program was amazingly simple. Following the criteria was straight forward and allowed for me to easily transition from one school to the next. I did not encounter any specific difficulties. I would have to say the most important criteria for admission would be TEAS exam scores. It is a state wide set entrance exam and if one does not pass, one can not get into the program. As far as tips go, I would be more than confident in saying that anyone can do it, as long as they work hard. This program is not just handing you your admission. They require the GPA, ACT/SAT, and TEAS requirements to be met. Don't be afraid to meet with counselors if you have any concerns. If you are a transfer student, look specifically into the college classes required for that specific program. Overall, Saint Francis is open to any questions!

There are people of many different races at USF. We have many International Students that live on campus, so that brings a lot of diversity to campus. We also have clubs that focus on the many diverse groups of people. There is International Club, UVA (Unidos Vamos A Alcanzar), and Spectrum (GSA). Through these clubs the students get to learn more about each other and themselves. The school is very supportive by allowing these clubs to hosts events open to the university. Overall, I would say that diversity on campus is fairly well. There is always room for improvement though. Which is why this year SGA is bringing in a new position named "VP of Diversity" to bring more diverse events and understanding to USF! :)

Disapppointing Let Down – The scholarships are available but if you fall short of your scholarship by getting a lower grade point there is no warning, no probation period and your highest sholarship trumps all underneath it with lower grade point requirements and you can not fall into a lower scholarship. If you lose your scholarship and they won't let you know until the bill come, you lose everything. As Freshman, I had a lot to learn about being a college student, its night and day from high school and universities should take that transition process in consideration and offer a probation period before scholarships are 'YANKED.' One bad teacher, one mistake in one class could cost you the ability to even be a student at the school because its expensive!
