What are my NID and my UCFID?

Your NID is your secure sign-on for many systems at UCF, including myUCF and online courses. To obtain your NID, go to myUCF, click Sign On, click What is my NID, then follow the instructions to obtain your NID and create a password.

Your UCF ID is the number you will use to identify yourself when you call or visit offices across campus, including Undergraduate Admissions. To obtain your UCF ID, go to myUCF, log in using your NID and password, click Student Self Service > Personal Information >UCF ID Info. This page will display your UCF ID, your NID and your UCF ID Card number, once you have been issued one.

I’ve been offered admission. How can I request an enrollment deposit waiver?

Your $200 non-refundable enrollment deposit and $2 convenience fee is due no later than May 1 for the summer and fall semesters, and December 1 for the spring semester. After accepting an offer of admission on your Future Knights Portal, the application status page will display a new line titled “Payment Due”.

You can request a waiver of the $200 enrollment deposit by uploading one of the following items:

An SAT, ACT or NACAC fee waiver from your high school guidance office
Documentation from your high school showing your eligibility for a free or reduced lunch
Your family’s most recent tax return

You will receive a response from our office once your waiver request is received and processed.

I’ve been asked to submit a copy of my SSN to UCF. Why?

If you receive a request for a copy of your Social Security Card, it means that UCF has a blank or invalid Social Security Number (SSN) on file for you. Not having a valid SSN on file will prevent you from having aid awarded through Florida Bright Futures and/or the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Additionally, a valid SSN is required to process certain third party payments, such as Florida Prepaid.

You may upload a copy of your Social Security Card through our secure Qualtrics portal at https://ucf.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_daIPksdbz2j64mN. Once received, your student record will be updated within 15 business days.

Can everyone take online courses?

Due to restrictive state regulations, UCF is not permitted to provide online courses or instruction to students in some states. The list of states currently restricted is available at the Registrar’s website. While residing in one of these states you may not be permitted to enroll in UCF Online courses.

Can I change my entrance term to UCF?

Offers of admission are term-specific and are not transferrable to another semester. Students wishing to change their entrance term — either before or after they are admitted — must reapply and submit a new application fee or eligible fee waiver.


Do I have to register to attend the Admitted Student Open House?

Yes, each admitted student must register to attend, though parents and other family members can register as guests under one student’s name. Please consult your email invitation for the link to our registration form.

We want to make certain that everyone gets the attention they need, and fewer people means more one-on-one attention for you, so we limit space. If you need to cancel, please let us know so we can allow others to attend. A cancellation link appears in the confirmation email from when you signed up.

How can I accept my scholarship?

If you have been awarded a merit scholarship, instructions for accepting your award will be provided through email and written correspondence.

How can I find out what courses or credits will transfer to UCF?

College-level coursework from other accredited institutions of higher education, meeting university transfer eligibility requirements will transfer to UCF. However, all your credits may not meet the specific requirements of your degree program. The department of your major will determine how these credits will be used and applied toward your degree.

UCF currently uses a plus/minus system in calculating a grade point average for transferred coursework. In addition, grade forgiveness is only honored if it has been awarded in conjunction with an A.A. or statewide articulated A.S. degree from a Florida public community college, state college or university.

All incoming courses will be reviewed for UCF equivalency once you are admitted. The Transfer Credit Evaluation, located in your myUCF portal (navigate to Student Self Service > Other Academic) will list all courses received at the time of admission as well as any associated UCF equivalencies. For courses without a UCF equivalent, you will have the opportunity to upload a syllabus and the course will be evaluated. You will have limited time to submit syllabi if needed, so you should review the Transfer Credit Evaluation in myUCF at your earliest convenience.

UCF has created a convenient transfer equivalency portal to access a database of established course equivalencies from other institutions. While actual awarding of transfer credit occurs after official transcripts are received from the sending institution, the portal can provide guidance as you plan your transition to UCF.

Does UCF accept credit cards?

Yes, we accept credit cards for tuition, as well as at locations across the campus. You can also use your UCF ID card, which also operates as a bank card. Please visit the UCF Card Services website for more information about the UCF Card.
