What to Look for in an Online Graduate Program
When choosing an online degree, select a university that is accredited. This ensures that the school adheres to the required standards of providing a quality education. Accreditation is important for financial aid purposes, transferring credits, as well as sitting for licensing exams or other industry certifications. Many employers also consider degree accreditation when making hiring decisions. UCF is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), and many of our degree programs have met accreditation standards within their specific areas.
How a school ranks compared to other institutions plays an important role when choosing where to study. Top rankings highlight a school’s strengths, providing an indication about the quality of instruction that you will receive. The methodology behind the scores are based on a number of factors such as research, student excellence, faculty resources and graduation rates, to name a few. UCF Online programs have consistently ranked among the top in the nation — earning high scores for student engagement, technologies and support, faculty credentials, and the program’s overall reputation.
State Authorization and Reciprocity
UCF Online takes the steps necessary in maintaining its state authorization — protecting your hard-earned investment in higher education. This authorization allows us to operate in not only the state of Florida but also every other state where our students enroll. To stay compliant, we review and submit the required documentation to regulators. From publishing refund policies and compliant procedures to disclosing what professions require state licensure, the team at UCF Online makes sure your degree is recognized no matter where you are from or plan on going.
Online Graduate Admissions
To be granted admission to UCF Online, you must meet all UCF and program admission requirements and not enrolled in a campus-based course.
