Interdisciplinary Studies: Admission Requirements

Fountain at Sunset

For information on general UCF graduate admissions requirements that apply to all prospective students, please visit the Admissions section of the College of Graduate Studies website. All applicants must apply online. All requested materials must be submitted by the established deadlines.

In addition to the general UCF graduate application requirements, applicants to this program must provide:

  • One official transcript (in a sealed envelope) from each college/university attended.
  • Official, competitive GRE score taken within the last five years (Thesis-track applicants only)
  • Personal statement describing the applicant's goals/objectives and intended focus of the degree.
  • Résumé.
  • Three letters of recommendation from academic references.
  • A proposed plan of study (thesis and nonthesis) that the applicant may pursue if admitted to the program.

Applicants should note the minimal requirements for admission to the program, although meeting minimum UCF admission criteria does not guarantee program admission. Final admission is based on evaluation of the applicant’s abilities, past performance, recommendations, match of this program and faculty expertise to the applicant’s career/academic goals, and the applicant’s potential for completing the degree.
