Academic and Students Affairs is moving on …

Over the winter break, the college’s Office of Academic and Student Affairs is moving to a great new space for all of USF Health students. It is a shared student services space provided to public health, medicine, pharmacy, physical therapy, and nursing students across USF Health.

The space includes a lounge area for students, computer access, and most importantly, food trucks on Monday-Thursday outside the main entrance!

Office telephone and fax numbers won’t change, but they (along with computers) will be temporarily disconnected.

For students and faculty, December 18 at 3pm is the deadline to submit documentation for processing before the end of the calendar year.  The office is closed for moving on December 19-20.

After the New Year rings in, be sure to visit the Office of Academic and Student Affairs in their new home, the MDA Building.

Financial help is also available so you can find a plan that fits your budget.
