Struggling or new to webcourses/online classes?
Online and Mixed-Mode classes have become a rising trend here at UCF. It is easy for anyone to get lost in all the technology. http://learn.ucf.edu/ was created to help students become familiar with and answer any question about the updated webcourses website. If you are new to UCF, you can watch videos presented by various teachers teaching the online courses, and see how online/mixed-mode classes would look for you. For current students, there are interactive walk-throughs to help familiarize yourself with webcourses. You also can find all of the online courses offered at UCF, and check the system statuses for UCF’s commonly used video-streaming websites.
Withdrawal Deadline Coming Up Soon
The withdrawal deadline is October 28th, 2013 at 11:59pm. If you are not doing so well in a class this semester, this may be one of your best options to save that GPA to possibly avoid academic probation, retain scholarships, or save you the trouble of completely retaking the same class later. The grade forgiveness deadline is also October 28th, 2013 at 11:59pm. This is used to replace a grade for a class previously taken at UCF, which can also be used to improve your GPA.
A reminder that enrollment for this Spring 2014 semester is coming up, if not already available. To check when you can start enrolling, log onto your myUCF account, go to 'Student Self-Service,' click on the 'details' link in the 'Enrollment Dates' box (on the right side of page), and select the Spring 2014 semester.
