University Honors – Incoming Freshmen
The Burnett Honors College accepts applications from high-achieving high school seniors applying to be freshmen immediately following their senior year, referred to as "first time in college" or FTIC students. Typically, academically talented students are identified by the UCF Undergraduate Admissions Office and are invited to apply to University Honors by the Burnett Honors College. However, any incoming freshman FTIC student interested in applying may request an application.
Eligible students must:
- Be admitted to UCF as an FTIC student for the Summer or Fall semesters (for a complete definition of FTIC, click here).
- Complete the University Honors application in its entirety, including the personal statement, list of co-curricular activities, and a copy of the high school transcript which includes the class rank, if available.
Students who earn an AA degree as part of a dual enrollment program and are admitted to UCF as FTIC can only apply to the University Honors program as freshmen (FTIC). A student may apply to the Burnett Honors College prior to being admitted to UCF, but we will be unable to review the application until the applicant has been admitted to UCF.
The deadline to apply for Fall 2019 is March 31, 2019 (postmarked). Only applications received before the deadline are guaranteed consideration. Late applications will be considered only on a space-available basis.
Students who apply late should be in the top 5% of UCF's incoming freshman class in all areas (test scores, GPA and other academic accomplishments). To request* a late application, you may send an email requesting an application with your name, mailing address, and UCF ID** to firstname.lastname@example.org.*
*We reserve the right to not send application packets to students who request late applications based on their academic credentials or on the class becoming full.
**The UCF ID is a seven-digit number used to identify you in University systems. To obtain your UCF ID, go to myUCF, log in using your NID and password, click Student Self Service > Personal Information > UCF ID Info. This page will display your UCF ID, your NID, and your UCF ID Card number, once you have been issued one.
Applications for the incoming class of Fall 2020 will become available on or after September 15, 2020.
