Transfer Applicants

Each year, millions of college students transfer to another institution – and according to U.S. News & World Report, more students choose to transfer to UCF than to any other university.

If you wish to transfer to UCF, you may apply up to one year prior to the term you wish to enroll. All applicants are considered on a space-available basis and you should apply as early as possible to also meet financial aid and housing deadlines.

To assist 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. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions also offers special afternoon information sessions on select Thursdays exclusively for transfer students. Sign up today and Transfer To Be A Knight.

If you are a student from the College of Central Florida, Daytona State College, Eastern Florida State College, Lake-Sumter State College, Seminole State College or Valencia College, visit the DirectConnect to UCF program website to learn how you can prepare for your transition to UCF while attending your community or state college.

Applications submitted after the deadline may be considered for a different term.

Admission Criteria

UCF computes a GPA for each institution attended, as well as a cumulative GPA based on all attempted college course work. This computation recognizes a plus/minus grading system, but only recognizes grade forgiveness when it is used as part of an A.A. degree from a Florida public community college/state or Florida public university.

Admission criteria varies based upon the total number of transferable semester hours of college course work you will have completed by the time you enroll at UCF.  Choose a category below for specific admission requirements:

Fewer than 30 transferable semester hours

30 or more, but fewer than 60 transferable semester hours

60 or more transferable semester hours

Shortly following admission, a transfer credit report will be available on myUCF. Our Orientation office will contact you concerning your attendance at a one-day orientation program. At Orientation you will receive academic advising and assistance in planning your class schedule. You will also meet with other transfer students as well as faculty and staff who can assist you as you make this important transition.
