UCF Connect

UCF Connect is a partnership-driven unit designed to strategically extend UCF’s reach to communities in and beyond Central Florida that provides access to quality continuing and higher education for students who, because of time, distance, preference, or life circumstance, might not otherwise have the opportunity to pursue educational opportunities.

The Central Florida Higher Education Consortium, branded as DirectConnectTM to UCF, is a unique partnership between UCF and College of Central Florida, Daytona State College, Eastern Florida State College, Lake-Sumter State College, Seminole State College, and Valencia College. This agreement provides entry for A.A. and A.S. graduates to UCF as an enhancement to the Florida state-mandated 2 + 2 agreement. Students entering UCF as a DirectConnectTM to UCF student are admitted according to the UCF policies when A.A. or A.S. degrees are awarded. UCF Success Coaches are available on each of the DirectConnectTM to UCF campuses.

UCF Connect offers an opportunity to complete a number of programs through the UCF Connect Centers. Strategically located within an 80-mile radius of the UCF Orlando campus, the UCF Connect Centers partner with the six DirectConnectTM to UCF state colleges, fostering seamless and convenient advancement from completion of an A.A. or A.S. degree to upper-level division work on a baccalaureate degree. With close proximity to Orlando, resources are available at UCF and the UCF Connect Centers, such as admissions, registration, financial aid, advising, student clubs and organizations, accessibility services, veteran’s affairs, “smart classrooms,” libraries, computer labs, and more. Accessible academic programs vary by location. For the most current information on any of the UCF Connect Centers, check the website at www.connect.ucf.edu/.
