It is critical for students to choose a major prior to transferring to UCF. By declaring a major, unnecessary classes are avoided and UCF major prerequisites can be taken while earning your Associate of Arts degree. It is important to be aware of UCF degree requirements (GPA, limited access majors, etc.). The UCF Undergraduate Catalog provides degree requirements for each major.
UCF has an established policy regarding undeclared students. Undeclared and undecided students with 45 credit hours or more may have a hold placed on their records and are required to make an appointment with their academic advisor to release the hold. Students are strongly encouraged to do major exploration and interest assessments prior to making an appointment with their academic advisor.
Students are encouraged to explore major and career options through the UCF Career Services office. MyPlan, a career exploration tool offered through UCF Career Services, introduces students to career databases, personality assessments, collegiate information, and major-related planning. MyPlan also provides updated top ten lists, skills profilers, and graduate school information.
