TRANSFER TO UCF ONLINE
Whether you’re around the corner or across the globe, transferring from another institution or returning to college to complete your degree, UCF’s online programs are designed and taught by the same faculty members who teach classes on our campuses. Our fully online bachelor’s degrees offer the convenience, affordability and support you need to succeed.
APPLY AS A TRANSFER STUDENT
Are you a transfer student? If you’re seeking a bachelor’s degree, have attended one or more colleges or universities and have completed 12 or more transferable college or university credits post-high school, you will apply to UCF Online as a transfer student. Check out the Undergraduate Catalog and Office of Undergraduate Admissions websites for complete undergraduate admissions requirements.
Steps to Apply
1. Speak with a success coach.
At UCF Online, earning an undergraduate degree is anything but a solo journey. The UCF Online Connect Center offers a team of success coaches specially trained to provide high-level support, coordination and guidance from admission through graduation. So whether you’re returning to college or seeking a convenient way to earn a degree, we’re ready to help you succeed. Get started today by speaking to one of our success coaches.
2. Create a smooth transition plan.
Transfer-admission criteria can vary based upon the number of transferable semester hours of college coursework completed by the time you enroll at UCF. To learn more about specific transfer requirements, select the category below that best describes you:
- I will have fewer than 30 transferable semester hours
- I will have 30 or more, but fewer than 60 transferable semester hours
- I will have 60 or more transferable semester hours
For transfer applications, UCF operates on a rolling admission basis and generally notifies you of an admission decision once all of your supporting documentation are received and reviewed. You can check your admission status online through the myUCF portal. Once admitted, a transfer credit summary will be available on myUCF.
