Congratulations on your recent admission to one of our graduate programs at UCF. This section will help you get started, as will orientation programs offered by your individual college or program. We look forward to serving you at this important juncture of your academic and professional pursuits.
The College of Graduate Studies holds one in person orientation that occurs at the beginning of the fall semester. Students admitted in the spring or summer semesters are welcome to attend this orientation.
The Fall 2017 New Graduate Student and Welcome Event will be held on Wednesday, August 9, 2017, in the UCF Student Union, Pegasus Ballroom.
Keep in mind that several colleges and programs also offer their own separate Orientations (which in many cases is mandatory). Please check with your program about any orientation events specific to your program or college.
