Full-stipend assistantships require students to perform assistantship assignments for a minimum of 20 hours per week during the period of the assignment.

  • Am I eligible to be a graduate assistant?

    You must be accepted as a graduate student in a degree program and be enrolled full-time to qualify for a graduate assistantship.

  • How do I apply for an assistantship?

    You should contact your Graduate Program Director for application guidelines.

  • Are university fellowships available to graduate nondegree-seeking students?

    Students must be accepted as a graduate student in a degree program and enrolled full-time to be eligible for university fellowships or assistantships.

  • What is a Graduate Plan of Study (GPS)?

    The GPS (degree audit) is an advising tool for students and advisors to track progress toward the degree or certificate completion.

  • How do I access my GPS (degree audit)?

    You can access your GPS (degree audit) by logging into the myUCF portal, navigating to the Student Center, and choosing Degree Audit from the drop-down box under Academics.  For more information on accessing your degree audit visit https://graduate.ucf.edu/graduate-plan-of-study/.

  • What is a Program of Study?

    A Program of Study is a listing of coursework agreed to by you and your program advisor. A Program of Study form can be obtained from your graduate program director.

  • When should I file a Program of Study?

    Each graduate student must file a Program of Study within their first semester at UCF.  This is especially important if you are bringing in transfer credits as they will only be considered in that first semester.  Any submission of transfer credits after your first semester at UCF will not be approved.  These forms can be located on your department’s home pages and are simply the courses you have completed and plan to complete to meet your degree’s requirements.

  • What happens if I do not submit a POS?

    If you do not submit a POS by the designated deadline, you will receive a registration hold that will prevent you from registering for classes. If you miss the deadline for transfer credits, you will lose the opportunity to request transfer credits.

  • Can I register if I have not submitted my Program of Study?

    Yes, even though a “to do” item will appear on your myUCF record, it will not prevent registration. However, if you do not submit the Program of Study in the time frame outlined above a Registration HOLD will be placed on your account. It is best to work with your College/Program adviser to submit your POS as soon as possible to prevent registration delays.

  • How do I get my degree audit?

    The degree audit is an advising tool for students and advisors to track progress toward the degree or certificate completion. You can access your degree audit by logging into the myUCF portal and navigating to the Student Center and choosing Degree Audit from the drop-down box under Academics.  For more information on accessing your degree audit visit the https://graduate.ucf.edu/graduate-plan-of-study/.

  • What is a petition?

    When unusual situations arise, petitions for exceptions to policy may be requested by the student. Depending on the type of appeal, the student should contact his/her program adviser to start the process. The petition process should start early, as soon as the problem is identified, and should always be filed using a Graduate Petition Form. Please refer to Academic Grievance Procedure and Petitions of Graduate Requirements Procedures in the Graduate Catalog for details. The Petition Form is available in the Forms and References section of the website.

  • Can I miss a semester without being kicked out of my program?

    Students can miss 2 consecutive semesters without being administratively discontinued from their program.

    If you plan on missing more than 2 semesters, you will need to submit a Special Leave of Absence request.

    If do you not submit the Special Leave of Absence and are administratively discontinued from the program, you will have to reapply for admission.

    The associated university policy is available here.

  • What is the minimum grade I can receive in my classes without being penalized?

    Satisfactory Progress means all course work should be a B or better for use. However, after admitted, you can earn two C graded courses and remain eligible for graduation provided that your Graduate Status and Overall GPAs are a 3.000.  Your C graded course work cannot be transfer course work.

    If you earn a 2.999 Graduate Status GPA, you have an additional 18 hours to increase your GPA to a 3.000 or you will be dismissed from your graduate program.  You must create a Probation Plan with your Graduate Program Director.

    If dismissed, you must either sit out for a calendar year and then reapply to the same program or be accepted to another graduate program.

  • How do I resolve the hold on my account?
