Welcome to UCF. Our thoughts are with the families and communities in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands who experienced loss from Hurricane Maria. As a newly admitted student, we have established this website that contains important information so that you can begin planning for your transition to UCF. Here is a list of next steps to help make your first days at UCF easier.

  1. Log into myUCF to confirm your current status. Once you log in, click on:  Student Self Service > Undergraduate Admissions > Application Status in the left navigation.
  2. Register for a mandatory Orientation program. You will register for classes and complete your final steps toward enrollment during this day-long program. Although a degree audit will not be available for academic advising purposes prior to your orientation, advisors will have access to the unofficial documents you submitted. For questions regarding orientation, please contact their office at http://orientation.ucf.edu/contact.
  3. Prior to registration, you must submit a completed immunization form provided by UCF Health Services. The immunization policy and form may be downloaded from the Student Health Services website. If you encounter difficulty submitting immunization records, contact UCF Health Services at 407-823-3707.
  4. Search for scholarships and seek out financial aid opportunities online, or by contacting Mr. Ric Colon in the Office of Student Financial Assistance at Richard.Colon@ucf.edu.
  5. Explore housing options and meal plans. On-campus housing for spring 2018 is currently very limited. Services for students wishing to live off-campus are available through the office of Neighborhood Relations.
  6. UCF provides a number of academic resources to assist students with being successful in their courses. Please visit the Student Academic Resource Center at a glance for more information.
  7. Sign up for Knight’s E-Mail. This is the only e-mail system UCF uses and the only way we will communicate with you on official university business.
  8. If you supplied unofficial transcripts or test results (including AP, IB, AICE and SAT or ACT scores) for admission purposes, please be advised that final OFFICIAL transcripts/test results will be required as soon as they are available. An administrative “hold” will be placed on your student account and transfer credit will not be entered until official documents are received.
  9. UCF Cares is an umbrella of care-related resources dedicated to helping Knights in need.  If you have needs that can be addressed by Student Care Services, please contact them by email at caremanager@ucf.edu or by phone at 407-823-5607 and asking for Ann Marie Palmer or Angela Newland.
  10. The City of Orlando provides resources and assistance for newcomers to Central Florida. For information, please visit http://www.cityoforlando.net/hola/.
  11. To stay informed on your “next steps”, visit myUCF often.
NOTE: The waiver of out-of-state fees for Spring 2018 will automatically be applied to students from Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. It will be applied to your fee invoice during the second week of classes, prior to the payment deadline. In the meantime, to determine the amount of tuition and fees at an in-state equivalent rate, subtract the UGRD Non-Resident Fee and the UGRD non-Resident FA Fee amounts from your account balance total. The remainder would be the tuition and fees due for spring 2018.

Thank you for your ongoing patience as we continue to recover from this year’s devastating hurricanes. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need additional assistance at our toll-free hotline: 1-855-903-8576.
