Class Schedule Search

You can search for classes online though myUCF. First, you need to log in.

The above five steps are all that are required for finding a class; however, unless you want to see every class offered at the Main Campus during Spring 2008, you will need to narrow your search. There are several ways to do this. You can use one or all of the following suggestions.

Class Search Criteria
  • Choose a Subject (Prefix) to see, for example, all the classes within the subject PUR-Public Relations.
  • Choose a Course Number to see all the classes of certain level. For example, typing “3%” will show all the classes at the 3000-level.
  • Other search options include: Course Career (Undergraduate or Graduate), Location (ex. Main Campus (Orlando), UCF at Cocoa, UCF at Daytona, etc.), and Special Course Groups (ex. GEP-Communications, Honors Classes, etc.).
  • Check or uncheck the box next to Open Classes Only to show or remove closed classes from the list.
Additional Search Criteria
  • Meeting Time (ex. Between 5:00 and 9:00)
  • Day of Week
  • Instructor Last Name or First Name
  • Class Number (ex. 1136)
  • Course Title Keyword (ex. Statistics)
  • Course Component (ex. Discussion, lab, etc.)
  • Session (ex. A-First Six Weeks)

Finding Your Course’s Instructional Modality:

To find out what instructional mode your course is, first find your course in the UCF Schedule of Classes (see above) and then click on the details of your course. You can access the details by clicking on the “Class” or “Section”. To find out what the different instructional modes mean, see: Types of Courses at UCFThe first two columns are Class and Section

Within the details, look for “Instruction Mode”
