Personal Essay

Hi, I plan to transfer to USF for the Fall 2020 semester. Does anyone know if the personal essay is optional?

Hello! I am also transferring to USF in fall 2020. According to the email I was sent it said “If you have fewer than 24 transferrable credit hours, you must submit a personal statement. Tell us why you want to transfer to USF and why you are seeking an early transfer to USF, since we have a minimum 24-credit hour requirement to be considered a transfer student.” When I attend I’ll only have 15 credits so I had to write one. I hope you get accepted!
