Student & Graduate Reviews

3.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: UCF is considered as a pretty good engineering school in Florida. The professors are close to the students and the classes are not too big (about 7-15 students) Cons: it is a little expensive if you have to pay out state tuition (my case)
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2014

UCF has a very good education faculty and a wide variety of excellent programs. Their online programs for grad school make getting a graduate degree possible for those who are currently teaching.
3.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

The academic load for the biomedical programs is easy overall, with an emphasis on molecular biology and laboratory techniques. They provide free tuition to all students, as well as teaching assistantships for those who's labs do not provide research funds to graduate students. The major con is the low number of researchers/professors willing to take new students. This is mostly due to the lack of funding for many professors. Many labs are located in the new biomedical sciences facility located in the medical city at lake nona, which should provide many collaborations and networking opportunitities for students in the future.
1.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2014

Most of the classes are review from undergraduate classes. Some professors grade upon completion and not quality. There is no financial aid offered to graduate students and the cost of living is outrageous. If you do not have a car transportation is extremely limited unless you want to pay $2 each way on the city bus.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2016

The University of Central Florida does a fantastic job at making college life affordable and accessible. They also make deciding on a degree program very easy through counselors and specialized aides. UCF's social work program if very fulfilling and a worthwhile degree plan!
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of the graduate program: Te professors are willing to answers questions, meet with you, discuss career options, and program options. The coursework is just enough at the graduate program to be challenging yet not overwhelming. The only cons of the graduate program is that courses fill up quickly and not of all the courses are available online.

UCF has a great value and is one of the most affordable graduate programs in the country. They are a relatively young program that continues to grow and prosper with great faculty who truly care about the students.
