The following schedule is a guideline of important times to seek academic advisement:
First term of enrollment - to discuss course equivalencies from other institutions, course substitutions, questions concerning the myKnight degree audit, provisional application procedures and sequencing of courses.
Prior to the end of the spring semester - make an academic advising appointment to review your planned schedule for multiple term registration. Sophomores are strongly encouraged to attend a College Connection advising session in the Spring semester.
Prior to February 1st and August 1st - meet with your academic advisor to review your myKnight degree audit and internship I or II application. Faculty advisor signature is required.
Two semesters prior to graduation - meet with your academic advisor to review your myKnight degree audit to determine if you are ready to file an Intent to Graduate.

Advising sessions are held daily in the Undergraduate Affairs Office (Education Complex 110) for Education Pending and Elementary Education majors.

To schedule an appointment, please visit us or call 407- 823-3723.

Education Pending Students

Students who are pending admission to a degree program are classified as Education Pending students.

Once all college admission requirements have been met, students are required to complete a Change of Major request to change from Education Pending to their intended major. The student’s degree audit will be updated to identify their assigned academic advisor. Students are encouraged to make an appointment with their academic advisor each term.

Graduation Procedures

In order to graduate from UCF, each student must file an “Intent to Graduate” application. This application includes the Intent to Graduate form and the UCF Exit Surveys. The application process is completed online via myUCF in the Student Center. For more information about graduation, review the frequently asked questions and answers.

You need to complete an Intent to Graduate (ITG) by logging on to the myUCF portal, going to your Student Center, and clicking on the “Intent to Graduate: Apply” link located in the drop-down menu under My Academics. When filing your Intent to Graduate form, please be sure to complete the university and program-specific surveys.

You should file your online ITG before the deadline on the academic calendar, and no later than the first week of classes during your final term of enrollment in the undergraduate program.

It is your responsibility as the graduating student to verify that your myKnight degree audit is complete and all requirements for graduation have met. You may review your audit by logging on to your account at: my.ucf.edu > Student Center. Things to consider and look for that may prevent your graduation:

  • Make sure that all of your correct majors appear in your myUCF page. If there are any errors, you will need to fill out a Change of Major form online via the myUCF portal (my.ucf.edu) or with your Regional Campus advising office to add/drop any degree programs.
  • Make sure that all of your correct minors and certificates appear in your myUCF page. If there are any errors, you will need to fill out a Minor/Certificate Declaration form online via the myUCF portal or with your Regional Campus advising office to add/drop any minors/certificates.
  • Have all of your course requirements been met on your audit and listed as “satisfied”? If not, you’ll need to meet with
    your faculty advisor to have course information on taking these exams and the procedures for signing up are in our office, Undergraduate Affairs ED 110, or can be found online at fl.nesinc.com.

Passing results on the FTCE, a state mandated exam, are required of all students enrolled in initial teachers preparation programs in the College of Education and Human Performance. This exam includes the General Knowledge Test (GKT), Subject Area Exam (SAE), and Professional Area Exam (Ped). Please check your degree audit for this requirement. Please note, only official passing scores are accepted to meet the graduation requirement.

Information on taking these exams and procedures for signing up can be found online at fl.nesinc.com. Visit the FTCE Prep website for resources to prepare for these exams.

Once you have filed your online Intent to Graduate (ITG), a formal review of your myKnight degree audit will be performed. We will notify you by email during the semester regarding whether you file is complete and ready for graduation OR if there are remaining graduation requirements for you to meet. As the graduating student, it if your responsibility to follow-up on these notices and resolve all issues that may prevent your graduation.

Diplomas are mailed by the Registrar’s Office about 4-6 weeks after commencement. They are mailed to the address you indicated on your Intent to Graduate.

If you do not meet graduation requirements during the term indicated on our Intent to Graduate (ITG), you must file a new form at the beginning of registration for the next term of anticipated graduation. Remember that you must be enrolled at UCF during your term of graduation OR you may request an ‘enrollment exception’ from the College of Education and Human Performance, Undergraduate Affairs, ED 110.
