Students in this program enjoy the traditional college experience with support systems in place to ensure their academic and personal success. They live on campus, take classes with traditional students, and visit businesses and organizations in the community to build connections and gain work experience.

Housing

Students in our program may be considered to live on campus in the Academic Village, which comes with the security and convenience of 24-hour staff support, fully furnished rooms, utilities and high-speed Wi-Fi. Students live in suites or apartment styles with four residents and two restrooms. Depending on the living community floorplans, students may have a large living room and kitchen.

Project Focus

Do you need help with organization, planning, memory, anxiety or other executive function issues? Project FOCUS (Focusing, Organizing and Coaching Undergraduates Students) will provide coaching sessions that include assessments and personalized strategies for success. Assessment sessions are conducted on the UCF campus, and coaching sessions are online. Our coaches will work with students to develop a personalized, comprehensive plan to address specific strategies to bolster students’ academic performance.
