Resources For UCF Families

Student Success and Advising

Although academic advising is decentralized across the University, each college has a central advising office that is also supported by professional or faculty advisors in schools and departments. This model allows advisors to specialize in their major, program, or area of expertise, leading to better guidance for schedule planning, academic support, career preparation, and staying on track to graduate. The Student Success and Advising website hosts academic advising and student success resources, including an advising office listing.

Student Rights to Privacy

FERPA protects the privacy of student educational records. It gives students the right to review their educational records, the right to request amendment to records they believe to be inaccurate, and the right to limit disclosure from those records. The act applies to all students who attend institutions that receive federal funding. With certain exceptions, a student has rights of access to those educational records which are directly related to them and which are maintained by UCF.
