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:

  1. Be admitted to UCF as an FTIC student for the Summer or Fall semesters (for a complete definition of FTIC, click here).
  2. 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.
