Dean’s Welcome

Welcome to the College of Undergraduate Studies! In partnership with UCF’s colleges, students have the opportunity to study across multiple disciplines and create customized fields of study that meet their interests and future goals. Our IDS graduates pursue a myriad of paths after graduation and are respected for their global perspectives, critical thinking, and ability to solve complex problems.

Alex Tejada is just one example of an IDS graduate who created a course of study that positioned him to achieve his goal of becoming a physician. He earned a Bachelor of Science in IDS with Physical Science, Biology, and Life Sciences as his areas of study, and Music as minor. Alex credits IDS with making him a well-rounded medical school applicant. We are proud that he will attend the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in the fall.

Our Academic Services team promotes student success by assisting them with record change requests and reviewing lower-level transfer credit for the satisfaction of requirements, such as General Education. The team also administers the myKnight Audit, ensuring all undergraduates have accurate information regarding their degree progression.

The college strives to provide the resources, expertise, and support that will influence UCF’s ability to provide the best undergraduate education in the nation. How? Scale x Excellence = Impact.
