My student completed their Associate of Arts (A.A.) before coming to UCF. Does this mean they will graduate in two years?
Ideally yes, but whether or not this actually occurs depends on a variety of factors – from course completion to social adjustment. Did your student complete all of the major’s prerequisite (or entry-level) courses needed with their AA? Did your student start taking math courses at a high enough level to keep them on track for a two-year graduation? It is also important to consider transfer shock and timing for extracurricular development when deciding on a two-year graduation plan. Students who are not at all familiar with our university’s structure may benefit from starting more slowly (taking fewer courses) to ensure academic success. In addition, students who are working full-time or need to be engaged in activities outside of UCF may need to take a little longer.
The goal is to graduate! So your student should keep in contact with their college advisor to ensure they are enrolling into the correct courses and are successfully balancing their academic expectations.
