New Student Checklist
Login and accept your admission offer.
Once you accept your admission offer, begin completing the New Student Checklist items listed below. These administrative tasks need to be completed before you can register for classes. Refer to your Student Handbook for complete details and instructions.
NID (Network ID)
Your NID is formed from combining the first two letters of your first name with unique random numbers and is assigned when you are first entered into the UCF system. Your NID is yours for life and will never be assigned to another individual. Your NID is used for logging on and gaining access to many UCF systems such as the my.ucf.edu portal and the UCF_WPA2 wireless network. Your NID serves no other purpose than to authenticate you into UCF systems. It is very important that you do not share your NID, and that the password be kept secure as anyone that gains access using your NID will have access to your data within the UCF system.
Your UCF ID is the number you will use to identify yourself when you call or visit offices across campus. 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. It is used only to identify you within the system.
Your student email is your official UCF email account that the University uses for student communication. Your student email is the only email UCF will use to will communicate official university business.
myUCF is the secure site that allows you to view your UCF account as well as update some personal information. It provides a central point to perform important tasks including registering for classes, getting degree audits, printing fee invoices and seeing grades. Check myUCF frequently for HOLDS or “To Do” items that may appear on your account. You will need your NID and NID Password to access this site.
Prior to registration, each new student accepted for admission must submit a completed Immunization Form provided by UCF Health Services. If you have questions about the Immunization Form, please contact UCF Health Services at 407-823-3707.
Evening MBA Students Only-Diagnostic Assessments
All admitted Evening MBA students are required to take each of four free diagnostic assessments in the areas of accounting, economics, finance and business statistics. These are offered through McGraw-Hill’s Connect online learning management system and are designed to help you build the foundational knowledge needed to succeed in your MBA program.
For M.S. Accounting, Evening MBA and Entrepreneur Certificate students…
In the Student Center, you can view a schedule of classes, add/drop/withdraw from classes, find your enrollment dates, see any holds which may prevent you from registering (such as Official Transcripts Hold or Immunization Hold), and much more. Your registration appointment is the date and time that you can begin to enroll in classes. If you have a hold on your account, you will not be eligible to enroll in classes until the hold is removed. UCF’s Registration Overview provides you a set-by-step guide to reviewing this information and registering for courses.
For Business Administration Ph.D., M.S. FinTech, MSM Integrated Business and M.S. Sport Business Management students…
The College of Business will register you for your cohort program classes closer to the start of the Fall semester. To be registered, you must accept your admissions, have a valid enrollment appointment time, and have your account clear of all holds. In the Student Center, you can find your enrollment appointment time, see any holds which may prevent you from registering (such as Official Transcripts Hold or Immunization Hold), and much more.
Graduate Catalog & Handbook
Review the Graduate Catalog and Program Handbook for additional information about your program, courses, policies, etc. Please note that your catalog year will correspond to the academic year you begin your program. (For example, Fall ’23, Spring ’24 and Summer ’24 admitted students will access the 2023-24 graduate catalog.) The upcoming catalog year, 2024-25, will be posted in August 2024. The link to your Graduate Handbook is located on the program page in the catalog.
Pay your tuition by the payment deadline for each term. Payment deadlines are listed on the UCF Academic Calendar.
For students with an assistantship please note the amount of tuition from your offer letter will be paid by the payment deadline and the remaining balance of fees and tuition ware your responsibility to pay by payment deadline.
UCF Parking Pass
A UCF parking permit is required to park a vehicle on campus. Parking permits are virtual and valid from the date of purchase through their expiration (365 or 150 days later). Visit UCF Parking for more details. Students enrolled in the part-time online cohort for the M.S. Fintech are not required to park on campus. If you need to visit campus and do not have a student parking pass, a daily virtual pass is available for purchase.
After the Start of the First Semester
Honor Your Knighthood Module
UCF is committed to student safety and success both inside and outside the classroom. As a new UCF student, you are required to complete “Honor Your Knighthood.” Honor Your Knighthood is a concept regarding new UCF students developing an understanding of the importance UCF places on subject matters related to academic integrity, alcohol awareness, sexual assault and hazing prevention. Failure to complete each of these modules by the deadlines will result in a HOLD on the student’s account mid-semester, which will prevent registration for future semesters.
Pressure to Plagiarize Module
The College of Graduate Studies requires all graduate students to complete the Pressures to Plagiarize Module. The module will appear in your Webcourses account toward the end of week two/beginning of week three of your first semester of your graduate program. This module takes approximately 45 minutes to complete. If you were previously enrolled in another graduate program at UCF, and completed the Plagiarism module at that time, you will not be required to complete it a second time; however, you will need to send an email with a screenshot of your final quiz grade, your name and UCF ID to email@example.com to be removed from the course.
