Reminder: First-year applicants from U.S. high schools must submit a SPARK Form in lieu of an initial high school transcript to be considered for admission. For SPARK Form information, click HERE. If you are an applicant or admitted student who submitted a SPARK prior to 1st semester grades being released, a “mid-year update” is required. Click HERE for the mid-year update instructions.
High School students who have demonstrated exceptional academic ability may be permitted to enroll as UCF students while completing their high school graduation requirements. Under Florida Statues (F.S. 1007.271) and operating in accordance with local articulation agreements, there are two types of enrollment options: Dual Enrollment and Early Admissions.
Dual Enrollment is for students in grades 6-12 who desire to dual enroll on a part-time basis, taking one or two courses, while completing their high school coursework. Students must submit an application for admission by the published application deadline date, as well as the following items:
- Official copy of high school transcript(s)
- Official copy of SAT or ACT exam results
If determined to be academically admissible, the student will need to submit a Dual Enrollment Authorization Form. This form will be sent to the student and must be completed by the high school and returned to UCF.View Dual Enrollment Admissions Requirements
Early Admission is for students who typically have completed their junior year in high school and would like to enroll at UCF as full-time students for their senior year of high school. Students must submit an application for admission by the published application deadline date, as well as the items listed above. Additional documentation may be required.View Early Admissions Requirements
Students interested in dual enrollment (part-time enrollment) or early admission (full-time enrollment) prior to high school graduation must meet or exceed the following academic qualifications:
- SAT: 1330 (Evidence-based Reading and Writing + Math)
- ACT: 28 (Superscored Composite)
If a student meets or exceeds these qualifications, then he/she can be considered for admission. The undergraduate application should be completed through our website. All required official academic transcripts and/or test scores should be sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. An application fee is not required for dual enrollment or early admission applicants.
If offered admission, authorization forms and information about the next steps toward enrollment will follow.
** Students who are home schooled must present evidence that the home education program is in compliance with s. 1002.41, F.S.. In addition, they must present a home schooled transcript which includes a list of all coursework (both completed and in progress) showing grades and units earned for each course.
- Satisfying minimum requirements does not guarantee admission to UCF.
- Florida BOG Regulation 6.001 (7) authorizes universities to refuse admission to applicants due to past misconduct.
