First-Time In College (FTIC) students are defined by the number of college credits completed after high school graduation. Any student who graduates from high school and enrolls at UCF having completed less than 12 college credits since earning their high school diploma is an FTIC.

College credits completed as part of a high school curriculum (including dual enrollment and accelerated credit such as AICE, AP, CLEP or IB) are not counted toward the credit limit. Even students who have completed significant college credit, such as an AA degree, are considered FTICs as long as the credit or degree was earned while still enrolled in high school.
