UCF is focused on creating academic and community leaders, so we welcome all types of students. You don’t need to fit within the conventional admission categories to apply. See how you can take classes without working towards a degree at UCF or how you can earn your second bachelor’s.
An undergraduate student attending another accredited institution of higher education (meeting university transfer eligibility requirements) in the United States (other than a Florida public institution) (please see note below) who desires to enroll for one term at UCF may be considered for admission as a transient student. Such enrollment terminates at the end of one term and does not presuppose regular admission to the university. A transient student must:
- Submit the Application for Undergraduate Admission by the appropriate application completion deadline
- Submit an official transcript from the last school attended
- Have a minimum 2.0 GPA from the last school attended
Transient students are not eligible to receive financial aid. Registration is permitted on a space-available basis, and meeting minimum GPA requirements does not guarantee admission.
Transient applicants whose last school of attendance is a Florida public community college, state college or university must apply through Florida Virtual Campus.Apply as a Transient Student
An undergraduate student who wishes to attend UCF, is not working toward a degree and has not already earned a bachelor’s degree, must apply to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions as a non-degree seeking student. Non-degree seeking applicants must follow the same application procedure and must meet the same admission requirements as transfer applicants.
- Your application as a non-degree seeking student will not be reviewed until official SAT or ACT score reports, if applicable, all official high school or college transcripts, and all official AICE, AP, CLEP and IB score reports (if applicable) have been received.
- Satisfying minimum requirements does not guarantee admission to UCF.
- Florida BOG Regulation 6.001 (7) authorizes universities to refuse admission to applicants due to past misconduct.
Second Bachelor’s Degree
Graduates from other 4-year accredited institutions of higher education (meeting university transfer eligibility requirements) in the United States who apply for admission to work toward a second bachelor’s degree must meet the regular requirements of the university, as defined in the Undergraduate Degree Requirements. Students must meet all transfer GPA requirements. A baccalaureate degree or higher from another 4-year accredited institution of higher education (meeting university transfer eligibility requirements) in the United States satisfies the General Education Program (GEP) requirements and also provides exemption from the foreign language requirements for admission and graduation.
A baccalaureate degree or higher from a non-U.S. institution will not automatically satisfy the GEP requirements. If a baccalaureate degree from a 4-year accredited institution of higher education (meeting university transfer eligibility requirements) in the United States includes credit from an institution that does not meet university transfer eligibility requirements, the credit from that institution may not be included as transfer credit. This would result in the transfer of less than the total number of credit hours awarded within the baccalaureate degree.
