Experts agree. U.S. News and World Report says we’re a “Top Tier” and a Best “National University.” The Princeton Review ranks us one of the “Best 380 Colleges”. Forbes called us a “Best Buy College.” A 2016 Cappex College Considerations Report named UCF the “top school Florida students choose”. And, The Business Journals ranked UCF #83 out of 250 top public universities in the nation. UCF is also a founding member of the University Innovation Alliance, a group of 11 public research universities working together to fuel innovation and economic growth and address nationally critical areas of work and creativity.
