The UCF transfer credit equivalency portal contains the current database of our established course equivalencies. Our database is always expanding as we continue to evaluate courses submitted by students. The information in the portal is derived from current transfer credit rules in the UCF system. If a course is not included in the database, that does not mean it will not transfer. It means that your course(s) must be evaluated by UCF personnel.
In 2009, the Florida Legislature implemented Section 1009.286, Florida Statutes to encourage students to complete their baccalaureate degree as quickly and efficiently as possible and established an Excess Credit Hour Surcharge. The bill requires universities to add a surcharge to each credit hour taken in excess of the total number of credit hours required to complete the degree being pursued.
A registration waitlist is an electronic process that auto-enrolls students in closed classes as seats become available. This enables students to get into the classes they want without having to continuously check for possible openings. Waitlists operate on a first-come, first-served basis, so this process ensures that students who enroll sooner have a better chance of getting into a closed course.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, or FERPA, is the United States federal law that protects student records privacy review and disclosure rights. The law guarantees these rights for both current and former UCF students.
The University of Central Florida has been approved by Florida to participate in National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements. NC-SARA is a voluntary, regional approach to state oversight of postsecondary distance education. The reciprocity agreements allow for the open delivery of academic credit-earning activities in participating states, including academic field experiences such as internships or practicums.
Multiple Term Registration allows all undergraduate students to register for Summer and Fall terms at the same time.

As part of the university’s ongoing efforts to provide improvements in services for our constituents, we are working together with programs, colleges and Computer Services to provide a tool that will enhance the student’s advising experience.
