All applicants for graduate admission must submit official transcripts of all academic work. For admission to the university, students must have obtained the equivalent of a baccalaureate or higher degree, prior to the start of the term for which the student is admitted, from a regionally accredited U.S. institution or from a recognized foreign institution. Students without the equivalent of a baccalaureate or higher degree from a regionally accredited institution (or equivalent) are not admitted to graduate degree programs, graduate certificate programs, or graduate nondegree status. All students who wish to be admitted in regular degree-seeking status to a doctoral program or wish to be considered for university-wide fellowships must also submit an official GRE General Test score (or an official GMAT score as required).
Please Note: The College of Business Administration requires that all degrees (baccalaureate or higher) must have been earned from regionally accredited institutions.
UCF now requires that Chinese applicants submit verification reports from the China Academic Degrees and Graduate Education Development Center (CDGDC). For complete details regarding this requirement, please visit our Sample Country Requirements Page.
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 http://regulations.ucf.edu/chapter2/index.html (UCF-2,003, UCF 2.0031, UCF 2.009).
