Financial aid is available to students who have been offered admission, determined eligible, fled the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), classified as a degree-seeking student, have enrolled in at least one UCF class for the term they have been admitted and met all other eligibility requirements. If your first term of enrollment at UCF is the summer term, you must first complete the prior year’s FAFSA in order to receive financial aid for that term. If you are a financial aid recipient, your eligibility is based, in part, upon the assumption that you have met the admission contingencies specified in your admission letter. If it is later determined that you failed to meet an admission contingency, you will no longer be eligible for financial aid and it will be canceled. In addition, you will be responsible for repaying any fnancial aid disbursed to you.

A copy of your official final transcripts from each institution attended is required. If you satisfied the foreign language requirement in high school, a copy of your official final high school transcript must be submitted
to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. The status of these transcripts is available on your myUCF Portal. Failure to provide final transcripts will jeopardize your ability to adjust your schedule, register for future
terms, receive grades or have transcripts sent to other institutions. Failure to provide final transcripts to UCF may also delay the disbursement of financial aid. Your admission is contingent upon your successful completion of all coursework at a level consistent with that at the time of admission. Your enrollment is not complete until all official final transcripts and test scores are on file in our office.
College-level coursework from other accredited institutions of higher education, meeting university transfer eligibility requirements, will transfer to UCF. However, all your credits may not meet the specifc requirements of your degree program. The department of your major will determine how these credits will be used and applied toward your degree.
UCF currently uses a plus/minus system in calculating a grade point average for transferred coursework. In addition, grade forgiveness is only honored if it has been awarded in conjunction with an A.A. or statewide articulated A.S. degree from a Florida public community college, state college or university.
All incoming courses will be reviewed for UCF equivalency once you are admitted. The Transfer Credit Evaluation, located in your myUCF portal (navigate to Student Self Service > Other Academic) will list all courses received at the time of admission as well as any associated UCF equivalencies. For courses without a UCF equivalent, you will have the opportunity to upload a syllabus and the course will be evaluated. You will have limited time to submit syllabi if needed, so you should review the Transfer Credit Evaluation in myUCF at your earliest convenience.
If you have taken AP, IB, AICE or CLEP exams, you must have official score reports sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
The foreign language admission requirement consists of demonstration of competency of a foreign language or American Sign Language equivalent to the second high school level or the post-secondary elementary 2 level. If you have not met this requirement, you will be required to do so prior to graduation from UCF. If you satisfed this requirement in high school, you must submit an ofcial high school transcript to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
There may be additional foreign language graduation requirements for individual majors. Please contact the department of your major for details.
Failure to provide final transcripts, official test scores or residency documentation will result in a hold being placed on your account in myUCF. These holds will affect your ability to adjust your schedule, register for future terms, receive grades or have transcripts sent to other institutions. These holds will also delay the disbursement of financial aid.
