At UCF, we prepare you for life and a career. Here you’ll experience the benefits of a complete college experience on a friendly and exciting campus. Our student services and faculty provide a quality education in internationally recognized fields such as engineering, hospitality, digital media and biomedical science.
Experts agree. U.S. News and World Report says we’re a “Top Tier National University” and “School to Watch.” Kiplinger’s Personal Finance and The Princeton Review named us a “Best Value” university and Forbes called us a “Best Buy College.” And we’re one of six “Next Generation Universities” for our commitment to world-class research and as a model for national education reform.
UCF’s Top 10 Knights program is a new initiative launched to recognize student academic achievement in high school and to provide Florida students and families with more certainty regarding the UCF admission process. Florida high school seniors who apply to UCF, rank in the top 10% of their high school graduating class and meet a minimum test score are guaranteed admission to UCF.
The University’s commitment to all Top 10 Knights is to provide a healthy environment for student success and engagement, and to guarantee housing in our residence halls. Living on campus provides unparalleled university connections and supports a 20% higher graduation rate for those who live on campus for at least two years versus those who do not.
