The Power of Potential

Founded in 1963 to fuel the region’s talent pipeline and support the growing U.S. space program, UCF is built to make a better future for our students and society. It’s one of the reasons U.S. News & World Report ranks UCF among the nation’s top 10 most innovative colleges, while Forbes, Kiplinger and The Princeton Review rank us a best-value university.

As a leading metropolitan research university in Florida, we are driven to do more and be more. We believe success can only happen when we expand opportunity and demand excellence. We believe if there’s a better way, we should do it. We believe innovation comes from the meeting of diverse viewpoints. And when more people unleash their full potential, anything is possible.

In 2019 UCF was designated a Hispanic Serving Institution by the U.S. Department of Education due to its significant Hispanic enrollment. With 27.8% of the student body being Hispanic, UCF takes great pride in serving Latino students. To help support the success of Latino and other underrepresented students in STEM majors, the U.S. National Science Foundation awarded UCF more than $1.8 million in April 2020.

Life Is Good in Orlando

Living in America’s most popular tourist destination has its perks, but there’s a lot more to Orlando than theme parks and thrill rides. From our dynamic downtown to our eclectic neighborhoods and wide-open nature reserves, Orlando offers more reasons to explore than you can imagine. And with 236 days of signature sunshine to enjoy, it’s no surprise that so many UCF alumni choose to stay in the region after graduation.
