Top 10 Knights

UCF’s Top 10 Knights program is an initiative launched to recognize student academic achievement in high school and to provide Florida students and families with more certainty regarding the UCF admission process. Florida high school seniors who apply to UCF, rank in the top 10 percent of their high school graduating class and meet a minimum test score are guaranteed admission to UCF.

Admission to UCF is guaranteed by meeting ALL of the requirements. Admission is not guaranteed for a specific semester, but it will be granted to one of our term options: summer, fall or spring.

If you qualify for Top 10 Knights and apply for admission by the January 15 deadline, you will be notified of your admission to UCF by March 1.
