Undergraduate Catalog

The University offers four specialized degree programs for students who have graduated from a Florida College System institution with an A.S. in the following programs: Applied Science, Criminal Justice Technology, Hospitality Management, and Nursing.

Students who wish to transfer to UCF under the provisions of the articulated A.S. programs must meet specific criteria:

  1. Students must graduate with the specific program and new A.S. in Fall 2000 or later, (Fall 2003 or later for Criminal Justice) from a Florida public community or state college.
  2. Students who have graduated with an A.S. prior to Fall 2000 are not eligible to participate in these programs. The pre-2000 Florida College System institution A.S. programs have slightly different requirements. Students who do not have the new A.S. should complete their general education at the community or state college and then transfer into the appropriate non-A.S. to B.S. program at UCF.
  3. Students should select the appropriate major on the on-line application, designating their desire to participate in the articulation agreement.
  4. Students earning an Associate in Science have the option of completing the state approved general education program at a Florida community or state college or state university and must request an official transcript with “general education requirements met” on the transcript to be sent to the UCF Registrar prior to their graduating term from the University of Central Florida. The associate in science degree must include a minimum of 15 college credits of general education coursework. Students who chose to complete their general education program at UCF must meet all of UCF’s current course requirements. Students may not be transient in their last 30 of 39 hours at UCF. Students must also meet the State General Education Core requirements.
  5. Students with an Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree are not eligible for participation in these programs unless they also have the appropriate A.S.degree.

Applicants who qualify for this program are not guaranteed admission to the limited access program in Nursing or programs that require specific grades in particular courses for admission.

Students should consult with their community or state college advisor when pursuing one of these programs to make sure they have met all of the appropriate requirements for the degree, including the necessary General Education courses and common program prerequisites. Students are still required to complete all of the components of the Gordon Rule prior to graduation from UCF. Students may be required to complete all common program prerequisites for these majors prior to enrollment in upper division course work. To earn a bachelor’s degree, students must complete 36 hours of General Education Program.

Students admitted into these programs must meet the requirements as stated in the programs listed below. Students who change majors out of these programs must adopt the requirements of the most current catalog for the selected major, including the required UCF General Education Program.

Questions concerning the requirements of these majors should be referred to the appropriate academic department, Regional Campuses Associate Director (407-823-2609), or the College of Undergraduate Studies (407-823-2373).
