UCF’s Learning Online Web site is an essential resource for current and prospective students. This site provides detailed information about UCF’s online learning experience, including information about:
- Types of online courses
- Technical requirements
- Support office
- Protocols for effective learning and communication with instructors
The http://learn.ucf.edu website also features a searchable database that enables students to identify Web-based and streaming video course sections offered in departments across the university. The course database can be searched in a number of ways including by academic term, department, or course number.
Online@UCF and http://learn.ucf.edu are supported by the Center for Distributed Learning (CDL) which serves as the central agent for online learning at UCF, providing leadership in distance learning policies, strategies, and practices.
UCF First Year Experience
First Year Experience (FYE) combines orientation with extended first year transition programs. It assists entering freshmen and transfer students with their transition to UCF by providing information about student services, campus life, academic support, academic advising, and registration.
Newly admitted degree seeking freshmen and transfer students are required to complete an orientation which includes advising and class registration information. Transfer students entering a Web-based program may complete their orientation on campus or online. For more information, visit the First Year Experience website at: http://fye.sdes.ucf.edu/
