For Counselors

Thank you for your support of UCF.

The Counselor Recommendation Form is an optional part of the admission process. Letters of recommendation from teachers may be submitted in lieu of the form. Recommendations can be submitted one of three ways:

Sending Transcripts:

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions can accept official transcripts through U.S. Mail or electronically when sent directly from your institution through a secure delivery service. UCF does not accept PDF transcripts emailed to us directly.

Electronic transcripts can only be accepted as official if they are delivered through one of the following approved transcript service providers:

  • SPEEDE (Addressed Institution ID: 10002 Institution ID: 730000000395400)
  • Parchment Exchange (including Naviance and Docufide)
  • National Student Clearinghouse
  • Credentials eScrip-Safe (formerly known as Scrip-Safe International)
  • Credential Solutions
  • Scribbles Software
  • AARTS and SMART transcripts (military service only, not required for admission)

NOTE: If the transcript delivery service asks you to provide an email address to send transcripts to, please use

*When sending a transcript through one of the above service providers, their system may indicate that it has been delivered, however, we ask for 2-3 weeks to process these documents. Instead of sending duplicates, please ask students to verify receipt of the transcript through their application status on MyUCF.

Hard copy transcripts may be sent to:
