Entrance Requirements and Recommendations

Requirements

All interested applicants must complete the University of Central Florida Undergraduate Admissions Application, and include a 30 dollar (US$), non-refundable application fee. Applications will be accepted up to one year prior to the start of the term desired. Applicants must request official transcripts from each educational institution attended. Admission into the University is selective and limited by space availability. Eligibility for freshman admission is subject to satisfactory receipt of all items required in the admission process. All applicants must meet the following State University System (SUS) minimum eligibility index standards: If the high school GPA in academic courses as calculated by UCF is between 2.5-2.99 on a 4.0 scale, the student must present the following minimum SAT Reasoning or ACT Plus Writing scores:

Students admitted prior to Spring 2017:

SAT - Critical Reading >= 460 or ACT - Reading >=19

SAT - Mathematics >= 460 or ACT - Mathematics >= 19 and

SAT- Writing >= 440 or ACT =Combined English/Writing >=18

Students admitted Spring 2017 or later:

SAT - Critical Reading or concorded score from rSAT Evidence-Based Reading and Writing >= 460 or ACT Reasoning >= 19

The degree of competition for space depends on the number and qualifications of those who apply for admission. To increase the chance of admission, high school students should present credentials which are stronger than the minimum requirements for consideration as listed above.

Recommendations

In addition to the minimum University entrance requirements, students entering any of the engineering programs should be adequately prepared at the secondary school (or higher) level in the following disciplines, mathematics through trigonometry, physics, chemistry, biology, introduction to computers and computer programming. These requirements should not be ignored; those students lacking these credits may be required to complete additional course work which is not applied toward the degree.

All applicants must meet the following State University System (SUS) minimum eligibility index standards: If the high school GPA in academic courses as calculated by UCF is between 2.5-2.99 on a 4.0 scale, the student must present the following minimum SAT Reasoning or ACT Plus Writing scores:

Students admitted prior to Spring 2017:

SAT - Critical Reading >= 460 or ACT - Reading >=19

SAT - Mathematics >= 460 or ACT - Mathematics >= 19 and

SAT- Writing >= 440 or ACT =Combined English/Writing >=18

Students admitted Spring 2017 or later:

SAT - Critical Reading or concorded score from rSAT Evidence-Based Reading and Writing >= 460 or ACT Reasoning >= 19

The degree of competition for space depends on the number and qualifications of those who apply for admission. To increase the chance of admission, high school students should present credentials which are stronger than the minimum requirements for consideration as listed above. If the number of qualified applicants exceeds the number that the University is able to enroll, a waiting list will be established. Students who have been enrolled in dual enrollment courses will be required to have a minimum “C” average (2.0 GPA) for all completed dual enrollment course work. A student must demonstrate competency of foreign language or American Sign Language equivalent to the second high school level or higher (Spanish 2, etc.), or at the elementary 2 level in one foreign language or American Sign Language at an undergraduate institution, to be offered admission. There are three types of dual enrollment programs for high school students who have demonstrated exceptional academic ability. Students must submit an application for admission along with an official copy of high school transcript(s), an official copy of SAT Reasoning Test, redesigned SAT (rSAT) or ACT Plus Writing (or ACT for students applying for Spring 2017 or later), completed Early Admission/Dual Enrollment Authorization Form, and written permission from parents or legal guardian. The first type of dual enrollment program is: early admission for students who have completed their junior year in high school and would like to enroll at the university as full-time students for their senior year of high school. The second type of dual enrollment program is for students who desire to dual-enroll on a part-time basis, taking one or two courses on campus. The third type of dual enrollment program is for students whose high schools sponsor on-site courses at specific high schools. Students earn both high school and college credit for successful completion of course work. Each respective high school selects students who are eligible to participate in these programs.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Upon admission to the university all students declaring an engineering major are placed into a discipline-specific engineering pending category. To be admitted into a major within engineering, students must complete each of the courses specified with a grade of “C” (2.0) or better and be in good academic standing with the university.
• Calculus I, Calculus II (MAC 2311, 2312 or equivalent)
• Physics for Engineers and Scientist I (PHY 2048C or equivalent)
• Chemistry for Engineers or Chemistry Fundamentals I (CHS 1440, CHM 2045C, or their equivalents)

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

All International candidates applying for admission to UCF must submit a University of Central Florida undergraduate admission application with a $30 dollar (US$), non-refundable application fee. An on-line application is available at http://admissions.ucf.edu/. Because of additional processing time needed for International Students, students should submit the application as early as possible, but no later than March 1 for the Fall semester, and September 1 for the Spring semester. Students who attended an international secondary school that uses a grading and evaluation system different from the U.S. system will need a document-by-document evaluation (including a GPA calculation) of the secondary school record in English. This record, which should include performance evaluations, grades for work completed over a period of at least three years, as well as any certificates earned, should be sent to one of these two agencies: World Education Services or Josef Silny & Associates. They will translate it if necessary, evaluate it, and then send their evaluation directly to UCF. A grade point average should be calculated on this evaluation. If the student has attended any international universities, an English translation and evaluation of work completed at each institution will be necessary. Transcripts should be sent to one of the agencies listed above for a course-by-course evaluation. If 60 or more semester hours have been earned at a post-secondary institution, it will not be necessary to submit the secondary school records. Results of the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) or IELTS may be required of students whose first language is not English. Results of the SAT Reasoning Test, redesigned SAT (rSAT), or ACTPlus Writing (or ACT for students applying for Spring 2017 or later) will be required if the student has earned less than 60 semester hours of college credit. They are used in conjunction with other required credentials, and students should prepare sufficiently to achieve the highest possible score on these exams. Applicants must file a "Certification of Finances" form and supporting financial documents with International Affairs and Global Strategies indicating financial support to cover educational and other expenses for the first year of study.The Undergraduate Admissions Office may require additional documents and/or official transcripts before an admission decision is made.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

None above those already stated for the University and Engineering Department.

Residency Requirements

The University policy for graduation certification is that 30 of the last 39 semester hours in regular courses be earned at UCF. Also, a minimum of 25% of the total hours required for the degree must be earned in residence at UCF.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Students should submit the University of Central Florida Undergraduate Admissions application on-line at http://admissions.ucf.edu/. Official transcripts must be sent from all colleges attended. Applicants must have a current minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 and be eligible to return as a degree seeking student to the last institution attended to be considered for admission to the University of Central Florida. Meeting these minimum requirements does not guarantee admission. Transfer students are required to complete 30 hours in residence to earn a bachelor's degree. In addition, students must complete 48 hours in residence at the university to be eligible to receive baccalaureate honors recognition at the time of graduation. Transfer applicants with less than 60 semester hours of acceptable credit must minimally meet freshman high school unit entrance requirements, the high school academic GPA, and minimum SAT or ACT scores as listed in the undergraduate admissions requirements section; have at least a 2.0 GPA on a 4.0 system for all college-level academic courses attempted, be in good standing (minimum 2.0 GPA) and eligible to return as a degree-seeking student to the last institution attended. Meeting these minimum requirements does not guarantee admission. Admission of Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree graduates from Florida public community colleges, state colleges, and state universities will be governed by the Articulation Agreement between the state universities and public community colleges of Florida, as approved by the State Board of Education. The agreement states that except for limited access programs, admission as a junior to the upper division of one of the 12 state universities shall be granted to any graduate of a state-approved Florida community or state college or State University System institution who transfers directly to the university, who has completed the university parallel program; and who has received the Associates in Art degree, which includes the following: at least 60 semester hours of academic work exclusive of occupational courses and basic required physical education courses; an approved general education program of at least 36 semester hours; and a GPA of at least 2.0 on a 4.0 system for all college-level academic courses attempted. Transfer applicants with more than 60 semester hours of academic work who desire to be admitted as upper division students, but without an A.A. degree from a Florida Public institution must have a minimum of 60 semester hours of academic course work; the English and Mathematics requirement of the Gordon Rule; a minimum of eight semester hours of college instruction in a single foreign language for those students without the required two units of a single foreign language taken in high school.

Dual Degrees

Undergraduate Engineering Dual Degree Program Description

It is possible for a student to earn two degrees concurrently in two majors, e.g. aerospace and mechanical engineering. The university policy states that a minimum of 30 additional residency hours is required; however, the interested student should consult with his/her advisor for the specific college and/or departmental requirements. In general, the student is encouraged to spend the time more efficiently pursuing a graduate degree.

Admissions Information

Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

In addition to meeting the minimum university criteria, each applicant is required to satisfy college and department admission requirements. Meeting the admission requirements does not automatically guarantee admission, particularly to the doctoral programs, since enrollments may be restricted by limited college or department resources. The college also suggests its applicants file a pre-application before completing the university’s online application.

Master’s Programs Admission Requirements: A minimum GPA of 3.0 or better during the last two years (60 hours) of undergraduate degree work or for their overall undergraduate career is required. Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Data Analytics, and Electrical Engineering MS programs require competitive GRE scores on the combined verbal and quantitative sections. Aerospace Engineering, Civil Engineering, Digital Forensics, Environmental Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Materials Science Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering MS Programs do not require the GRE or another standardized test. However, all applicants who have not earned a degree from an English speaking institution must score at least an 80 on the internet-based TOEFL test or a 6.5 band score on the IELTS exam. Additional requirements, like a personal statement, resume, and/or letters of recommendation vary from program to program, but may be required.

Doctoral Programs Admission Requirements: Each applicant is expected to have a master's degree in engineering (or related discipline) awarded by a recognized institution and meet the departmental admission requirements. Exceptional students may be accepted to a PhD program without a MS degree upon department approval. All students are required to submit competitive GRE test scores. All applicants who have not earned a degree at an English-speaking institution must score at least an 80 on the internet-based TOEFL test or a 6.5 band score on the IELTS exam. Additionally, all doctoral programs require that the applicant submit three letters of recommendation, a personal/research statement, and a resume.

Graduate Admission to an Engineering Department

The individual departments in the College of Engineering and Computer Science offer master's degrees to students who not only fulfill University and College requirements, but have an undergraduate degree in a particular field of engineering or a closely related discipline from a recognized institution. Doctoral applicants should have a master's degree in a particular field of engineering or a closely related discipline from a recognized institution. Exceptional students may be accepted to a PhD program without a MS degree upon department approval. For Fall 2016, the average GRE score of our admitted MS students was a 310 combined from the verbal and quantitative sections of the exam. The average GRE scores of our admitted PhD students was a 311 combined from the verbal and quantitative sections of the exam.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

Along with all other graduate admission requirements, international students, except those who are from countries where English is the only official language or those who have earned a degree from an accredited American college or university, are required to submit a score of at least an 80 on the internet-based Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or a 6.5 band score on the IELTS exam.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

None above those already stated for the university and college.

Residency Requirements

To qualify as a Florida resident for tuition purposes, the student (dependent or independent) must be a U.S. Citizen, permanent resident alien, or a legal alien granted indefinite stay by U.S. Immigration, and must have established physical and legal residence in Florida for a least one year. Students who do not meet these basic criteria cannot be classified as residents for tuition purposes.

In-state status is only for those residents who reside in the state permanently with established legal domicile in Florida. Permanent Florida residency for tuition purposes is demonstrated by the absence of ties to any other state. An out-of-state permanent address on pertinent records is not indication of established legal domicile in Florida.

Permanent residence is evaluated for the domicile year associated with the initial term of entry to UCF or the term for which you are seeking reclassification.

Students are either dependent or independent. Graduate students are considered independent unless documentation provided determines otherwise. A copy of a federal income tax return substantiating dependent status will be required if a student is claiming residency as a dependent of a legal Florida resident. In rare cases, a student may qualify for temporary in-state status by qualifying under an exception category.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

There are no additional admission requirements for transfer students in the graduate program; however, there are restrictions on acceptance of transfer course work specific to the master's and doctoral programs.

Any credits taken prior to the term of admission to a student’s program and used to satisfy specific program requirements are considered graduate transfer credits. The acceptance of transfer credits is at the discretion of the graduate program.

• Only graduate-level or higher courses may be accepted as transfer credits.

• Only courses with a grade of B- or higher are allowed to be transferred into a program of study; transfer of courses with a grade lower than a "B-" is not petitionable.

• Only hours that are no more than seven years old at the time the degree is conferred may be transferred, unless part of an earned graduate degree.

• Despite meeting the minimum qualifications for transfer work, approval of all transfer work is at the discretion of the student’s advisor and/or the program’s graduate coordinator.

Transfer Work Requirements for MS Programs

Two different types of transfer credit can be brought into a master’s program of study.

1. External transfer credits: graduate-level course credits completed at a regionally accredited institution (excluding UCF) or recognized international institution. External credits are eligible for transfer only if they meet the following criteria:

• Only graduate-level or higher courses may be accepted as transfer credits.

• Only courses with a grade of "B-" or higher are allowed to be transferred into a program of study; transfer of courses with a grade lower than a "B-" is not petitionable.

• Only hours that are no more than seven years old at the time the degree is conferred may be transferred, unless part of an earned graduate or professional degree.

• Only formal course work hours, but not thesis or research hours, may be used as transfer credits.

External transfer credits are limited to up to 9 credit hours.

2. Internal transfer credits: graduate-level course credits completed

a. at UCF prior to enrolling in the program for which the degree is sought, including those taken in undergraduate status at UCF as part of a Senior Scholar or accelerated program; or

b. as a Traveling Scholar (see Traveling Scholars in the General Graduate Policies for more information).

Internal credits are eligible for transfer only if they meet the following criteria:

• Only graduate-level courses may be accepted as transfer credits.

• Only courses with a grade of "B-" or higher are allowed to be transferred into a program of study; transfer of courses with a grade lower than a "B-" is not petitionable.

• Only hours that are no more than seven years old at the time the degree is conferred may be transferred, unless part of an earned graduate degree.

Graduate degree programs are permitted to accept up to nine hours of graduate-level course work taken by a student while in undergraduate status at UCF. More than nine hours may be accepted if part of a formally approved accelerated program.

The sum of transfer credits from an earned graduate or professional degree, external transfer credits, and transfer credits from graduate-level course work taken by a student while in undergraduate status at UCF may not exceed nine credit hours.

The acceptance of transfer credits must be approved by the program director of the degree program; graduate programs may stipulate additional constraints. In no case may the sum of all transfer and waived credits exceed 50% of the total degree requirements of any masters’ degree.

Transfer Work Requirements for PhD Programs

Three different types of credit may be brought into a program of study for course work taken outside of UCF or prior to enrolling in the program for which the degree is sought.

1. External transfer credits: course credits completed at a regionally accredited institution (excluding UCF) or recognized international institution.

External transfer credits are eligible for transfer only if they meet the following criteria:

• Only graduate-level courses may be accepted as transfer credits.

• Only courses with a grade of "B-" or higher are allowed to be transferred into a program of study; transfer of courses with a grade lower than a "B-" is not petitionable.

• Only hours that are no more than seven years old at the time the degree is conferred may be transferred, unless part of an earned graduate degree.

• Only formal course work hours, but not thesis or research hours, may be used as transfer credits.

External transfer credits are limited to up to 9 credit hours for students who do not have a completed graduate degree or for students in doctoral programs that require a master’s degree for admission.

2. Internal transfer credits: graduate-level course credits completed

a. at UCF prior to enrolling in the program for which the degree is sought, including those taken in undergraduate status at UCF as part of a Senior Scholar or accelerated program; or

b. as a Traveling Scholar

Internal credits are eligible for transfer only if they meet the following criteria:

• Only graduate-level or higher courses may be accepted as transfer credits.

• Only courses with a grade of "B-" or higher are allowed to be transferred into a program of study; transfer of courses with a grade lower than a "B-" is not petitionable.

• Only hours that are no more than seven years old at the time the degree is conferred may be transferred, unless part of an earned graduate degree.
(Note: Internal thesis or research hours may be used as transfer credits, but may not be used to satisfy formal course work requirements.)

Graduate degree programs are permitted to accept as internal transfer credits up to nine hours of graduate-level course work taken by a student while in undergraduate status at UCF. More than nine hours may be accepted if part of a formally approved accelerated program.

Waived credits: 30 credit hours in a program of study that are waived on the basis of an earned master’s degree, not based on individual courses.

For students in doctoral programs that do not require a master’s degree for admission, students with an earned master's degree may have 30 credit hours waived if the following criteria are met:

• the earned degree is from a regionally accredited institution or recognized foreign institution;

• the master's degree was earned in the same or a closely related area of study
The acceptance of transfer or waived credits in a program of study must be approved by the program; graduate programs may stipulate additional constraints beyond those included in the university transfer policy. In no case may the sum of all transfer and waived credits exceed 50% of the total degree requirements of any doctoral degree.
All transfer and waived credits to be used toward a doctoral degree should be finalized by the end of the third major (fall/spring) term of program enrollment (based on full-time enrollment), and must be finalized prior to the change to candidacy status.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.
