High school, guidance and college counselors are essential in helping students prepare for success and unleash their potential at UCF. We’ve compiled the resources you need to help students during their undergraduate admissions journey.

Counselor Updates, Newsletter and Email List

We continuously update our counselor email list. If you are a high school or college counselor and wish to receive emails from UCF Undergraduate Admissions, please send your name, title, school, mailing address, email address and telephone number to Elizabeth Costello.

Letters of Recommendation

Letters of recommendation are neither required, nor considered in the university’s general admission process.

Limited access and restricted access majors may require a separate application, which may include a recommendation component. Students should be advised to research the requirements for their intended degree program and follow the instructions provided. Please do not encourage students to submit letters of recommendation as part of the general application process to UCF unless otherwise instructed. Students who are denied admission and are going through the formal appeals process will be instructed that they may submit letters of recommendation in support of their appeal.

Sending Transcripts

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions can accept official transcripts through U.S. Mail or electronically when sent directly from your institution through a secure delivery service. UCF does not accept PDF transcripts emailed to us directly.

Electronic transcripts can only be accepted as official if they are delivered through one of the following approved transcript service providers:

NOTE: If the transcript delivery service asks you to provide an email address to send transcripts to, please use

*When sending a transcript through one of the above service providers, their system may indicate that it has been delivered; however, we ask for two to three weeks to process these documents. Instead of sending duplicates, please ask students to verify receipt of the transcript through their application status on myUCF.

Hard copy transcripts may be sent to:
