Please Note:

General Admissions Requirements

Individual programs may have more restrictive admission requirements, as listed in the Graduate Programs section of this website. Program requirements may be based on other factors such as work experience, research interests of the prospective student, evidence of extracurricular or community work, personal interviews, or other factors specified by the program.

The full language of the UCF Admissions Regulations for Graduate Students can be found at regulations.ucf.edu/chapter2.asp (UCF-2,003, UCF 2.0031, UCF 2.009).

All graduate applicants must provide official proof of a baccalaureate degree. Please request one official transcript from each college and/or university attended. Be sure to request that the transcript shows degrees you have earned.

Readmission

If you were previously admitted and enrolled in a graduate program at UCF but have been absent for three or more consecutive semesters, you may apply for readmission to the same graduate program. Readmission is also required if you were previously dismissed from a graduate program and are interested in regaining entrance into that same program. The graduate application for admission is available online for your convenience. Before you begin the application, however, check your program’s application deadlines and requirements in the Graduate Programs section of this website.

When a student applies for readmission, the program will determine if the student will be admitted back into the program. Those applying for readmission after being dismissed from a program will need to include a Conditional Retention Plan with their application. For more information on this policy, please visit the Policies section of the Graduate Catalog. Readmission is not guaranteed.

Application Requirements

  • Graduate Application for Admission (electronically signed and submitted by the applicant).
  • Residency Classification form (submit with online application).
  • A $31 nonrefundable application fee is required of all applicants for each application submitted.
  • Recommendations, if required by the program (complete this section of the online application).

Test scores (GRE, GMAT, TOEFL, IELTS) and transcripts do not need to be resubmitted. GRE/GMAT scores are valid for 5 years from your test date; TOEFL/IELTS scores are valid for 2 years from your test date. The readmission application and all application requirements must be submitted by the stated application deadline.


Annual Safety and Fire Safety Guide

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, otherwise known as the Clery Act, is a federal law that requires institutions of higher education to provide current and prospective students and employees, the public, and the Department of Education with crime statistics and information about campus crime prevention programs and policies.  The University of Central Florida’s Annual Security and Fire Safety Guide is published by October 1 of each year to comply with the requirements of the Clery Act and contains policy statements, crime statistics, and fire statistics for the school.  The policy statements address the schools policies, procedures, and programs concerning safety and security,  for example, policies for responding to emergency situations and sexual offenses.  Three years of statistics are included for certain types of crime that were reported to have occurred on campus, in or on off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by the school, and on public property within or immediately adjacent to our campuses.  This report is available online at http://police.ucf.edu/SafetyGuide/MainCampus/. You may also request a paper copy from the UCF Police Department or by emailing clery@ucf.edu.
