University of Central Florida Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (145)
UCF's Healthscience track is only a program for those who wish to enter Physical therapy school or any other allied field. There is not much one can do solely with this degree.
The University of Central Florida was not my first choice, however, I quickly learned that the college experience really depends on you and your attitude. UCF is amazing because it provides SO many amenities for its students and makes hundreds of resources (whether academic, social or financial) available to all students, faculty and staff but it definitely could do more to provide increased aid to certain students. UCF is certainly a "fun" school but they spend too much money on things that we really do not need just to "make kids happy." I personally would have preferred to live without certain celebrity appearances that they probably paid close to $100,000 to have that person come, if that meant they could allocate more scholarship or grant opportunities to students. I studied the modern languages and UCF is definitely not a top tier school when it comes to foreign language education. The professors were most certainly qualified, however, they were stuck in the publish or perish mentality which really hurts their ability to teach and produce students that can maneuver their respective foreign language at a level that gives testament to 4 years of constant language immersion. I loved every minute of my undergraduate studies at UCF because I made every effort to make my college time enjoyable and I did everything I could to make my degree mean something.
I believe that while the University of Central Florida provided a good opportunity to acquire the necessary tools for my field, there were vital components that were missing during my Graduate School experience.
UCF is a great school as far as the academics go and there is a great atmosphere. Unfortunately the financial aid department is completely incompetent . when dealing with students. i have been instructed by them to take out loans because i wouldn't be receiving sufficient funds to cover my tuition and a week later after taking out loans i received other aid. By them it is too late to cancel the loan. I have also been cheated out of aid because the FA office processed my information late despite the fact that i submitted my fafsa in the first hour that it was open on January 1st.
I currently hold a full time job. I went back to college to earn an Interdisciplinary Studies degree in Political Science and Public Administration. The combined areas suited my current profession well by making me a better candidate for promotion.
I transferred from Florida International University to University of Central Florida. My first impression of the school was that it was bit overwhelming. The school itself is larger than most so I assumed the classes would be impersonal and I would be overlooked. After getting into my major, I found out how wrong I was. The professors I have come across at UCF have been phenomenal. They were inspirational, well-informed, and motivational. My professors did everything and anything they could to push you forward in life. It has been semesters since I have taken some of their classes and I have yet to forget their names. Coming to UCF has been one of the best decisions I have made for my life.
Deciding to attend the University of Central Florida was one of the best decisions of my life. There are so many opportunities at this school that are always a short reach away. The professors not only taught well but were confidants and sincere to their students. I still keep in contact with some of them and they truly care about where I am going.
Professors are very interested in assuring students get the most from their education, at least in the Elementary Education program. The program offers not only the degree but Reading and ESOL endorsements (they are integrated into the program). Additionally, the staff works with students to build minors and certificates onto the major, often using major courses for minor course requirements. Great school for Elementary Education!
Chemistry, being one of the smaller majors has a great selection of courses and professors. The class sizes are reasonable after organic chemistry II and the teachers want the best. The school overall is decent, the housing department is horrible, financial aid is iffy at best, stick with your department advisors for the best experience.
UCF is an amazing school with a lot of future opportunities. I attend Rosen college of hospitality and it's awesome! They provide a lot of help when it comes to getting jobs and helping students. I am thankful to say that they will make sure every student graduates with a job.
