What we do

Our Academic Advocates work proactively with undergraduate students to remove barriers adversely affecting their persistence (the ability to continue their studies without interruption), and timely degree completion (the ability to graduate on time).

Undergraduate students may receive direct outreach from an Academic Advocate due to active monitoring of student academic behavior information or referrals by Faculty, Staff, or other members of the UCF community.

How we assist

When meeting with students, our Academic Advocates will operate within a coordinated care/case management model to ensure students are connected to the appropriate resources and services. Academic Advocates can also guide students in understanding institutional policies, processes, and petitions. To meet the needs of students, our team will collaborate and coordinate with academic departments, colleges, and university personnel.

We encourage you to take advantage of this resource and connect with an Academic Advocate if you or someone you know wants to discuss questions, concerns, or available options!
