Your UCFID is your Personal Identification Number (7-digits, no letters). Your UCFID is the key to accessing online registration, class schedule searches, adding or dropping classes, and a lot of other functions, including viewing your grades and fee schedules. You will be asked to select a password when you first are assigned your UCFID. You may change your password at any time.


Your NID is your Network Identification Number (2 letters and 6 digits). Your NID is the key to accessing the UCF computer network, the Internet, the library, and a world of cyber information. This number is also generated for you when you become a student at UCF for the first time. Again, you need to select and register a password that you may change at any time.

Before you register, there are a few things you need to do to make the process go smoothly.

    • The Academic Calendar can be found on the UCF website at, on myUCF in Helpful Resources. During Registration and Add/Drop, you can only register after your appointment time.

  • See an advisor. It is recommended that you meet with an advisor at least once every semester.
  • Check for Registration Holds. To view possible Holds, log in to myUCF, select Student Self Service, check the Holds section in your Student Center.
  • Check your Enrollment Appointment Time. To view your Enrollment Appointment, log in to myUCF, select Student Self Service, and see your Enrollment Appointment in your Student Center.
 Registering for Classes:
  1. Go to
  2. Log in to myUCF using your PID and password.

  5. Select the Term for which you want to register.
  6. Enter Course Subject and Number OR additional search criteria to Find Classes.
  7. Click Select Class when desired class is found and is open (green circle).
  8. Verify course information.
    • If the course has a Related Component (non-credit Lab or Discussion), you will be prompted to select the Component. Then, select Next.
  9. Click Proceed To Step 2 Of 3.
  10. Click Finish Enrolling.
  11. The next screen will show you a status message for each class enrollment that indicated either successful registration (green checkmark) or an error (red X). If an error occurred, you will be directed to view the “error log” to see the reason so you can see what kept the registration from being completed successfully (see below).
  12. View and verify your Class Schedule. Select the My Class Schedule tab to display the “List View” option or the Weekly Calendar View option.

When registering for a class, there are two possible outcomes; either you are enrolled in the course or you receive an error. Each error has a specific reason, and most cases are a result of user error and can be solved by reviewing course details.

Pre-requisite Not Met For A Class:
Pre-requisite or transcripts from the previous institution have not been processed by UCF.
Grades for pre-requisite may have not yet been finalized.

Class is Full:
Course enrollment is closed due to a lack of available seats.

Time Conflict:
Selected course meeting date and time conflicts with another already enrolled course.

Class Limit Exceeded/Term Unit Load:
Students are only permitted to register themselves for 17 credit hours (Spring & Fall terms) and 14 credit hours (Summer term).

Instructor’s Consent Required:
You must contact the instructor or the department that offers the course to be permitted enrollment. For SVAD courses, email [email protected].

Should you have reason to believe you have a special circumstance where the error message received does not apply to you, you can submit an Override Request.

You can submit an Override Request via email to [email protected].

When doing so, please provide the following information to process your request as soon as possible:

  • UCF ID (7-digit #)
  • Major/Track
  • Portfolio Review Status: Pending or Passed
  • Term of Enrollment
  • Course Number, Section and Class Number  (Example: ARH 2051, 0W60, 81369)
  • Reason for Request
  • Screenshot of Error Message
  • Supporting Documents

Please note a school can only process overrides for courses they teach, i.e. the School of Visual Arts and Design cannot process and override for DIG 3146 since that course is taught by the Nicholson School of Communication and Media.

Students must submit their Intent to Graduate well before their actual graduation ceremony. Please consult the UCF Academic Calendar to find the specific deadlines for your term (it will be listed as "Graduation Application").

You can file your Intent to Graduate form by going into your myUCF portal:

  1. Select the Student Self Service link
  2. Select the “other academic…” drop-down box
  3. Select Intent to Graduate: Apply.

Please be sure to complete the entire Intent to Graduate process. 

Once deadlines have passed, Students will need to contact us at SVAD Advising to inquire about earning their degree. 

If the Intent to Graduate is submitted after the term deadline, the student will no longer be eligible to participate in the Commencement Ceremony and their name will not appear in the list of degree candidates within the associated Commencement Program.

You will receive your diploma approximately 8-12 weeks after commencement by mail.

Please make sure your address is correct in myUCF. Click “Student Self Service” and then “Personal Information” to verify your address.

Emerging Media BFA students will receive an Emerging Media BFA Degree regardless of the track that they pursued (The track will not be labeled on the degree).
