Students not on an authorized deferred payment plan and who have not paid their registration fees in full by the published deadline will have their registrations canceled. A student will not receive credit for any courses taken during that semester. Students who are allowed to register in error may have their registration canceled. Any fees paid will be refunded or credited against any charges due the University.

  • General Information on Residency
  • Registrar's Residency FAQs, including Qualifying for In-State Residency
  • Academic Common Market - This is not a USF webpage. The Academic Common Market (ACM) is a tuition-savings program for full-time college students in the 16 Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) member states who want to pursue degrees in fields that are not offered by their in-state institutions. These students enroll full-time in out-of-state universities that offer the specialized degree programs, and they pay only the in-state tuition rates. Students in this program must be a resident of the SREB member state and be admitted unconditionally into an out-of-state degree program that is listed in the Academic Common Market inventory. For a list of participating SREB member states and to view the ACM inventory, click here. NOTE: ACM is considered a residency status. If you are an ACM student, you must be enrolled full-time (9 credits per semester) in order to receive in-state tuition; otherwise you will have to pay out-of-state tuition. If you can attend only part-time, you might want to consider the Reduced Rate Program instead.
