Academic Advising


VARC Advising:

The VARC is committed to your academic success.  VARC Advisors do not replace your academic advisor in your college/major.  We are an additional layer of support while at UCF.  VARC Advisors assist with the development and implementation of your academic plans and support your transition to UCF.  We also have access to many campus and community resources in the Central Florida area.

VARC Advisors assist with:

  • Providing prospective student admission information
  • Explaining veterans educational benefits interact with your degree program
  • Understanding university policies and procedures
  • Providing advocacy for student veterans and dependents
  • Connecting student veterans to community and campus resources

We are available Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. via walk-in or scheduled appointments.  To meet with a VARC Advisor email Joshua.Johnson@ucf.edu.

College and/or Departmental Advising:

Connecting with your academic advisor in your college and/or major is key to your academic success.  You can visit myUCF to find your assigned advisor.  Navigate to Student Self Service then look for the blue box that say advisor.

College/Departmental Advisors assist:

  • Reviewing academic progress
  • Planning for future terms
  • Major exploration and selection
  • Course petitioning/substitutions
