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.
**To prevent the spread of COVID-19, most Honors admissions representatives will be working remotely and may not be able to immediately address issues by phone. Questions may be submitted to us via email at HonorsAdmissions@ucf.edu. We will respond within 24 hours (during the work week).**
To be eligible to apply to The Burnett Honors College, students must
- Be admitted to UCF as a first time in college (FTIC) student for the Summer or Fall semesters.
- Complete the 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 first time in college (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 the Burnett Honors College will be unable to review the application until the applicant has been admitted to UCF.
