We encourage you to apply early, as admission to UCF is competitive. As a transfer student, you can apply up to one year prior to the term in which you want to enroll. If you’re a Florida College System graduate with an A.A. degree or an articulated A.S. degree, you will receive preference in the admissions process.
Transfer admission criteria can vary based upon the number of transferable semester hours of college coursework you will have 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
UCF operates on a rolling admission basis and generally notifies you of an admission decision within two to four weeks after it receives all of your supporting documentation. You can check your admission status online through the myUCF portal. Once admitted, you will receive a transfer credit summary.
