Degree Audit Questions

What is my degree audit and where can I find it?

The Degree Audit is a computer-generated evaluation of a student’s progress toward a specified degree program. It is NOT an official transcript. Use your Degree Audit to check which degree requirements you have met and which you have not met. Audits are available prior to registration and should be brought to each advising session. You may obtain your Audit online at MyUCF using the scroll-down bar located in the Student Center and print a copy as needed. For step-by-step instructions on how to access and read your degree audit click here.

What is the General Education Program?

The General Education Program (GEP) are 36 required semester credit hours. Course descriptions are in the online UCF catalog. Some majors require suggest specific General Education classes. Consult your academic advisor. Not all classes are offered every semester. For more information on GEP click here.

Will my A.A. or A.S. degree satisfy my General Education Program?

An awarded Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree from a Florida public community college or university satisfies the general education program requirements at UCF; this includes the Florida Gordon Rules. For more information on transfer credits click here.

Do I need foreign language courses to graduate or will my high school courses count?

Students must fulfill both the requirements for a major and University requirements to receive a bachelor’s degree from the University of Central Florida. Students graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree must demon­strate proficiency in a foreign language equivalent to one year of college instruction (and occasionally more, depending upon the specific major). This requirement may be met either by successful completion of the appropriate college-level course or by examination.

My transfer credit is not showing up on my Degree Audit, why is this and how can I fix it?

Credits are sometimes not applied to an intended requirement area as a result of poor organization and communication between students and UCF.

Transferring students should review our Orientation page for additional information on what forms to fill out and what information you will need from your transfer institution. Some credits will be transferred automatically, while others may require some extra processing.

If you have any questions about this process, please contact COSAS by emailing

What are University Credit Hour Requirements and why are they important?

In order to complete your University requirements and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Central Florida you must complete the University Credit hour requirements. The requirement is at least 120 overall hours and 48 of those must be upper level hours which means the course is a 3000 or 4000 level class.

How many electives can I take?

The number of electives you can take varies based on your major. Your degree audit, undergraduate catalog description, and departmental advisor can help you see how many and which electives count towards your major requirements.
