There are several programs that are designed for students who are transferring to UCF. If you are an incoming student, we encourage you to meet with a peer mentor who can advise you on how to get started in undergraduate research. You can apply for the Summer Research Academy, I.N.T.R.O., T-L.E.A.R.N., or TRIP.
Once you are on campus, you can explore additional programs such Academic Advancement Programs or the Honors Undergraduate Thesis program.
