Transfer Students – Connect Campus


If you plan to attend classes at a UCF Connect location, you will complete a Virtual Orientation, unless you are majoring in Nursing or Architecture (on-campus event required). After you have selected an Orientation session, please contact your UCF Connect campus office to schedule an appointment to meet with an Academic Advisor. The university Orientation requirements are fulfilled once you have completed either an onsite or virtual orientation, met with your Academic Advisor, and completed KnightsPrep. You will then be cleared to register for classes.
