While starting college is exciting, the newfound independence, responsibility, and time-commitment can be overwhelming. There are several resources to help your student through this adjustment period. UCF offers peer mentors and professional advisors to help with academic success; psychological counselors and extensive UCF CARES services to help them be personally successful; and many social events and programming geared towards building academic community. All of these services and supports are free to your student. We encourage our students to take full advantage of these services as needed, and we want you to also encourage (or remind) your student about these services if you think they need them.
