Student & Graduate Reviews

4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

The Doctor of Nursing Practice program offers students a variety of clinical experiences by requiring us to attend numerous clinical sites during our proram. This allows students to see different patient populations and associated morbidities. Our program is in it's infancy however and still growing so we have bumps in the road from time to time.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

Everything has been great so far I have had much experience with my faculty and accessibility to them is great as well. Workload is a bit much but I know it is worth it considering this is the #9 rated program in the country.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

My boss is a graduate of this program and said it is exemplary. I have done research on the program and have found that it aligns with what I am currently doing as a Counselor at a community college in the area.
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2010

Excellent professors and the convenience of online courses make this a great university that continues to grow and excel.
4.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

The UCF Counselor Education/Marriage and Family Therapy program is definitely a leader in the CACREP and counseling field. There are several opportunities to network and boost your clinical and research-related skills. If I were to list any cons, it would be the number of students in certain classes and a couple of the faculty members that contribute to negative experiences. Overall, the program is excellent and definitely deserves to be top-rated!
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!
