Our innovative partnerships highlight our UCF Connect Centers’ strengths, extending UCF’s reach across Central Florida, and our one-of-a-kind DirectConnect to UCF initiative increases the opportunity to high-quality bachelor’s degrees who might not otherwise gain entry to a four-year university.


We said “It’s All About Connections” and we meant it. DirectConnect to UCF guarantees admission* to UCF with an A.A. or articulated A.S. degree from any of our partner state colleges. Not only are there step-by-step support and valuable online resources, but there are other great benefits too:

  • Shorter time to complete your degree
  • Personalized advising and coaching
  • Smooth transition and enrollment assistance

*consistent with university policy
