Academic Advising


Our academic advisors assist First-Time-in-College (FTIC) students beginning at their freshman orientation session through the conclusion of their first year at UCF. We continue to assist students that are undeclared or undecided about the major and career choice beyond the first year.

First-Year Students

FYAE academic advisors are available to assist all FTIC students, excluding scholarship student-athletes. FTIC students that have earned an Associate of Arts degree or have completed their General Education Program requirements receive course schedule planning assistance from the college academic advising office of their major.

Prospective Students

FYAE does not meet with prospective or admitted students for academic advising appointments prior to Freshman Orientation. Prospective students seeking academic advising should connect with the college or department academic advising office of their intended major. Several online resources are available to assist you with learning about UCF’s degree programs and services.

Freshman Orientation

New First-Time-in-College (FTIC) students will meet with a professional academic advisor from our office in a group setting during their freshman orientation. Learn how to be prepared and get the most out of the freshman orientation program.

Undecided and Exploring Students

All currently enrolled students that have an undeclared major or are undecided about their major or career choice may schedule an academic advising appointment through our Major Exploration Program. Students with a specific major interest should visit the respective college academic advising office of that major interest for assistance exploring that major.
