3. When I’ve changed jobs in the past, I needed a few months for the transitional period before taking on big projects (going to a new institution is like changing jobs):A) TRUE.
Think of your transition to UCF as a new job and try to refrain from taking on too many obligations, and most importantly, give yourself some time to adjust to the new policies and new environment.
It will be important for you to understand the differences in policies such as Grade Forgiveness/Retakes, Academic Standing at UCF, and the Withdrawal Process and Deadline. COSAS can help you with those questions. Refer to your yellow card that you will receive at Orientation for contact information.
