  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

Overall, UCF is a wonderful school. There are so many opportunities I've been given and I am so glad I chose this school. I'm proud to call myself a knight.
Brittany from Oviedo, FL
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this school! It's a beautiful campus with so much to do, so many people to meet, and great places to get lost, be alone and find yourself in. There are so many opportunities to heighten your education, if you seek them out there is no way to fail, this school truly cares about your education and majority of the professors working there reflect that.
