Admission Requirements

UCF computes a GPA for each institution attended, as well as a cumulative GPA based on all attempted college course work. This computation recognizes a plus/minus grading system, but only recognizes grade forgiveness when it is used as part of an A.A. degree from a Florida public community college/state or Florida public university.

If you will have fewer than 60 semester hours of college course work by the time you enroll at UCF, you must meet the first-year student admission criteria, and have a competitive college GPA. You must also submit:

1. High school transcripts.
2. Scores for the SAT (code:5233) or ACT (code:0735).
3. Official transcripts from all colleges attended. If you have attended any international institutions, please click here for the requirements regarding the evaluation of this credit.

If you will have more than 60 semester hours of college course work by the time you enroll at UCF, or you will have earned an A.A. degree from a Florida public community/state college or university, you must:

1. Submit official transcripts from all colleges attended.
2. Have a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA at last school attended and overall.
3. Have completed two college-level English composition courses with a grade of “C” or better.
4. Have completed two college-level Mathematics courses with a grade of “C” or better.
5. Demonstrate competency in a world language or American Sign Language equivalent to at least the second high school level (e.g. Spanish 2) or the second elementary course at the college level (e.g. SPN 1121 – Beginning Spanish II). We may require a high school transcript to verify.

Notes:

1. The Redesigned SAT will be launched by the College Board in March 2016. UCF will accept both the Current SAT and the Redesigned SAT for the 2016-17 admission cycle. While UCF will continue to superscore the SAT, we will not superscore the two versions together. We will superscore the Current SAT with other administrations of the Current SAT and we will superscore the Redesigned SAT with other administrations of the Redesigned SAT only. For more information on the Redesigned SAT, visit the College Board website. UCF does not superscore the ACT and will consider the best Composite score.
2. Your application will not be reviewed until all official college transcripts and all official AICE, AP, CLEP, and IB score reports (if applicable) have been received.
3. Satisfying minimum requirements does not guarantee admission to UCF.
4. Florida BOG Regulation 6.001 (7) authorizes universities to refuse admission to applicants due to past misconduct.

Shortly following admission, a transfer credit report will be available on myUCF. Our Orientation office will contact you concerning your attendance at a one-day orientation program. At Orientation you will meet with an academic advisor who will review transferred course work and help you plan your class schedule. You will also meet with other transfer students as well as faculty and staff who can assist you as you make this important transition.
