Overall Rating

UCF is one of the fastest growing school currently in the US. There is always construction and parking is a nightmare. Because UCF so large, it can be difficult to find necessary classes for one's degree program. Because of this, UCF has also been nicknamed "U Can't Finish" because many students do not graduate in the typical four years for normal bachelor's degree.
