Greetings from the University of Central Florida. Here are the important updates from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for the month of October.

The 2019-2020 FAFSA launched on October first. All students are encouraged to submit the FAFSA early in their senior year. To receive maximum consideration for financial aid, the processed results of the FAFSA must be received at UCF by our priority date, which is December first. Additional information is available on our office of student financial assistance website.

The UCF Board of Trustees recently voted to extend in-state tuition rate for students from Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands who have been impacted by Hurricane Maria. Residents of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands can qualify for in-state rates through summer 2023, IF they are currently enrolled at UCF, are currently enrolled in a Florida state college and transfer to UCF, or are new students admitted for Spring 2019 to UCF or any Florida state college and then transfer to UCF.

The housing application for Summer and Fall 2019 will be available within the next week. Students can explore floorplans, costs, and view our Living Learning Communities on the housing website,

For the second year in a row, UCF has been named among the most innovative schools in the nation. U.S. News & World Report ranks UCF in the number 10 spot and we are the only university in Florida in the Top 25. The list is based on factors such as innovation in curriculum, faculty, campus life, technology, and facilities.

And finally, I am glad to announce the appointment of Dr. Elizabeth Dooley as UCF’s next Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs. As provost, Dr. Dooley will help UCF set the pace for what it means to be a model for higher education in the 21st century. She will be a staunch advocate for faculty excellence, student success and impactful research.

Elizabeth Dooley began her career as a public school teacher for a class of 20. As Provost, she now impacts more than 67,000 students at UCF.
