Concurrent Concentrations

Due to the planned consolidation during the summer of 2020, of the University of South Florida, the University of South Florida St. Petersburg, and the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee, into a single university with a fully aligned and integrated curriculum and a single set of academic policies and procedures, any undergraduate or graduate student who matriculates at one of the three USF institutions on or after May 18, 2020, will adhere to the curricula, policies, and procedures described in the 2020-21 USF undergraduate or graduate catalog, respectively.

A concurrent concentration does not require an additional SOPHAS application. Students will still apply to add the second concentration through the process below. For full requirements see the Academic Policies section of the USF Graduate Catalog.

When do you do this?

Student may begin this process during their first semester, but it cannot be finalized until after they have completed their first term.

What are the requirements and policies?

  • See the USF Graduate Catalog and the USF Graduate Concentration Form for requirements.

  • Students must complete both concentrations within the time limit for their degree.

  • Certificate seeking students may not be able to fully fund their courses due to the lack of electives, speak to your advisor.
