University of Central Florida: 40+ Pegasus Palooza Events to Welcome Knights, Accomplished Incoming Freshman Class to Fall 2022


As UCF welcomes students back for the Fall 2022 semester, the university is deeply committed to fostering their academic success and wellbeing — from their first day on campus through graduation.

This year’s incoming fall freshman class is already making its mark for academic excellence. Preliminary statistics indicate the fall freshman class set a new record for the highest SAT scores in university history with an average score of 1335. The class also has an average ACT score of 28.3 and an average 4.23 GPA. UCF will also welcome 86 new National Merit Scholars.

UCF is launching a doctorate degree in biomedical engineering, a master’s degree program in FinTech, as well as several programs designed to prepare the next generation of hospitality leaders, including a master’s in event leadership and certificates in entertainment management and financial management for hospitality and tourism. UCF offers more than 230 degree programs overall.

Students will have countless opportunities to unleash their potential, including working with talented faculty members to expand their knowledge in the classroom and research labs and participating in new experiences like internships and service opportunities that will empower them to succeed at UCF and beyond.

UCF’s many student resources include the Student Academic Resource Center, which provides one-on-one and group peer tutoring, academic coaching and workshops; the Transfer Center, which pairs transfer students with a personal success coach and helps them navigate their UCF experience and develop a sense of belonging; and UCF Cares, an umbrella of services focused on student wellbeing.

Helping students learn more about the many resources and services on campus and encouraging them to build connections with each other and the university are main focuses of UCF’s annual welcome week.
