UCF moved courses and office operations to an online format (Remote Instruction and Remote Work) effective Monday, March 16th, remaining in place through the summer semester. Beginning Fall 2020, UCF will provide limited on-campus classes and services. During this time, Advising Offices will remain operational. However, to align with university’s priority to keep students, faculty, and staff healthy, most advising appointments will remain in a virtual setting until further notice.

The Knights Major Exploration and Transition Center (KMETC) will make updates here regarding any changes to our services. The FAQs below are only meant to address questions we expect to come up while students are not able to come on campus. More complete information regarding the services below can be found elsewhere on the KMETC website. If you have questions not answered below, please email us at kmetc@ucf.edu.

KMETC recommends all students follow the UCF Coronavirus Information page. Here students can read the Return to Campus plan, as well as review up to date announcements and resources available during the fall semester.
