Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2008

Tell us about your college experience.

Good fit due to size of classes and campus feel. College experience was nice overall.

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

Yes, but only because I love working in the field of my degree. The pay is horrible.

What advice can you offer other students?

Figure out what job opportunities are available and if possible continue to graduate school. Seek internships and experience prior to graduating.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013

Tell us about your college experience.

I had a really good college experience. My internships prepared me for where I wanted to go, graduate school. This particular schools Psychology program fit what I wanted for my future.

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

Yes I would. I really enjoy the field I'm eventually going into. I wouldn't have had the chance to experience it if I wasn't a Psychology major.

What advice can you offer other students?

Get as much experience while you are an undergraduate as possible. This will be the foundation for your eventual career.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2011

Tell us about your college experience.

I think my school was a good fit for me. It is a very large school and I was quite introverted when I began. Going to such a large school it is easy to disappear into the crowd, but I had to develop my social skills to avoid that.

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

No. When I started school there was no economic downturn or recession and everyone said that you could get a job as long as you had a degree. Now it is much more important which degree you have specifically. I was torn between two options when I originally chose my degree and if I had to do it all over again I would gladly choose the other option.

What advice can you offer other students?

Know what you want to do with your degree. It should be something that you enjoy but it should also be something practical that you can realistically make a living with. If you find that college doesn't seem to be a good fit, don't force it. Don't spend a ton of money or get into debt when you're going to struggle through the coursework and be dissatisfied. Either love it or leave it.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2013

I graduated in 3 years while working full time back in 1997 from UCF. I enjoyed their programs and instructors so much that I choose to return to them for my current second degree. I would recommend pursuing a degree from this institution to anyone looking for high quality, meaningful instruction.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015

The University of Central Florida is a great school online and on campus. The coursework varies with each teacher, but in general it directly relates to the subject of the class and aids you in understanding and learning that subject. The online learning tools I have used so far at UCF are webcourses, which is a UCF website that allows professors to post assignments, notes, and emails all in one place so it is organized and easy for the student to access and understand what is expected of them and all due dates.

MyMathLab and MasteringChemistry are also frequently used at UCF, those websites host the assignments such as homework, quizzes, and tests, all on one website and link the directly to your teachers grade book so no one could ever lose your homework or mark the wrong grade for your test. I have always had positive and helpful interactions with my classmates. Whether or not our opinions coincide about a topic in discussions, or we're just discussing group assignments I have always found my classmates respectful and knowledgeable.

My instructors have always been great at UCF. Many are willing to help you on assignments or answer any of your questions before tests. Before most tests I've taken my instructor has opened up an online chat between themself and their students at a designated time. The instructors are easily accessible. I honestly recommend UCF as an online or on campus college for anyone. UCF is my home, I love the campus, I love the instructors, and I love the amount of classes they offer online. If you want a good education, and are willing to put effort into your classes this is the college for you.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at UCF. I completed my Bachelors at UCF and am now working on my Master there. The staff and professors are not only eager to help you learn but provide information for preparing for Grad school and your career.

I would recommend the school for anyone that would like some extra guidance along the way.

Degree: Legal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

The University of Central Florida's online schooling program is something I'm truly thankful for. I'm currently enrolled in my 4th online class here at UCF. It is absolutely fantastic. I have time to get my work done and I still have time to have a social life.

The curriculum isn't too difficult, and the professors respond in a timely manner. I have learned a lot with these online classes, and I will be taking more in the future.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

I believe that the variety of student services offered at the University of Central Florida causes the school to go above and beyond what most people expect. The amount of opportunities, help, and available resources that are offered to the students not only makes the experience much less stressful but also provides so many options for students to make the most of their time spent at the university. UCF takes advantage of the fact that they are located in such an active city by collaborating with the business around them to create jobs or even workshops that can be available for students in any type of field.

The coursework is manageable and the teachers are very helpful. A downside would probably be the math program because it is very demanding and less helpful since most math problems are done over the computer. I have taken part in an online class and the only other course that requires a high amount of online learning tools is math.

Degree: Forensic Science
Graduation Year: 2016

UCF, in my opinion is a great school and I would reccomend any aspiring student to attend this school in order to achieve their future goals. The teachers are very helpful and inspirational and work hard to set healthy foundations for their students. UCF has an amazing department for both psychology and engineering and the amount of work given is durable.
