Download, complete, and upload to the VZcollege system (under “MY WORKSPACE”, then “MY DOCUMENTS”) the following departmental forms:

  1. Application form for Graduate Study in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.

  Comments on the Online Application Process

  • You will provide the names and e-mail address of the authors of your letters of recommendation. The VZcollege system will send instructions for uploading letters to the recommenders with your request.
  • Transcripts are not required from former USF degree-seeking students. All transcripts must be in English or accompanied by a certified translation.
  • Admission decisions can be made on unofficial documents. To satisfy deadline requirements, applicants should upload copies of all transcripts and GRE and/or English test scores with their application. However, students who are offered admission to USF will be required to submit official transcripts and test scores to the Office of Admissions (address below). Failure to do so may result in registration holds if official documents are not received in a timely fashion.
