Admissions - UCF UCF Connect


UCF has welcomed transfers since we opened our doors in 1968. Did you know that more than half of UCF’s bachelor’s degrees are awarded to state college transfer students?

With programs like DirectConnect™ to UCF, which guarantees admission to all College of Central Florida, Daytona State College, Eastern Florida State College, Lake-Sumter State College, Valencia College and Seminole State graduates, UCF and its partners share academic programs, advising and financial aid resources to provide you with a seamless transition to UCF.

If you’re a transfer student with more than 60 hours or who has earned an A.A. degree from a Florida public state college or university you will need to:

  1. Complete two college-level English composition courses
  2. Complete two college-level Mathematics courses
  3. Satisfy the foreign language requirement—two years of a single foreign language in high school, or eight to 9 college-level credit hours in one foreign language. We may require a high school transcript to verify.

To help with the transfer process, the Office of Transfer and Transition Services is available to answer your questions, as well as to provide resources for transferring students.

There are a few simple steps to becoming a UCF Knight. They include:

  1. Complete and submit an online application at
  2. Pay the application fee online or by mail
  3. Request your transcripts from all schools attended
  4. Mail or hand-deliver all of the necessary additional documents

Once we receive all of the necessary documents and application fee payment, we begin processing your application. You can check your admission status through MyUCF.


Once you’re admitted, you will receive a transfer credit summary evaluation. Then, we will contact you to schedule a one-day orientation program at the regional campus you will be attending. You will have the opportunity to be pre-advised before orientation—this will allow you to plan your course schedule during the event. You will also meet other transfer students, faculty and staff who can help you make an easier transition to UCF.
