Please note: In an effort to serve our students safely and efficiently, the College of Nursing is conducting all advising appointments via phone or Zoom. Once an appointment has been scheduled, students will receive a confirmation email with their Zoom advising appointment call-in details. Students should contact their advisor using the provided Zoom web link or call-in number at their scheduled appointment time. Please continue to monitor the university’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) website for updates.


Welcome to the Office of Undergraduate Services at the UCF College of Nursing. Whether you’re a current or prospective undergraduate nursing student, we are here to provide advice, assistance and support.

Our team is here for you – from the moment you’re interested in becoming a Knight Nurse until you walk across the stage to receive your bachelor’s degree.

Prospective UCF undergraduate students are encouraged to first attend an information session. If you have additional questions, you may schedule an advising appointment.

Current UCF students (including recently admitted Transfer students and Freshman admits who have paid the matriculation fee) may schedule a nursing advising appointment through myKnight STAR.

Current students who have already been admitted to a BSN program may contact their program director or site coordinator for advising questions related to their enrolled program and/or courses.

We look forward to helping you achieve your educational goals.
