A Guide for UCF College of Business Students & Family
Return to Campus
As we prepare to return to campus this fall be assured that UCF continues to prioritize our campus community’s health and well-being — following guidance from public health officials and the Governor’s plan for reopening Florida.
In June, the Florida Board of Governors approved UCF’s plan to return to campus. We encourage you to review the plan and continue to provide your input to the university.
