  • Graduate Student Handbook

    The graduate student handbook serves as your main resource and guide throughout your graduate career. The guide includes university information, policies, requirements and resources.

    Some essential, basic information about your program can be found in the Graduate Catalog, including the program description, curriculum, and contact information. The Graduate Catalog also has the definitive language that describes general information about graduate education at UCF and general university and graduate policies. This handbook will provide many pointers and links to relevant information that can be found elsewhere.

    We thank you for being a student at UCF and entrusting your professional development to us. We hope that you have a worthwhile and life-changing experience here and that it prepares you for your future endeavors.
