Areas of Support

Student Highlight

Sabrina Rodriguez ’19 almost didn’t make it. Just about the time she finished her associate degree at Seminole State College and moved on to UCF via DirectConnect to UCF, her father lost the job he’d held for 17 years. Sabrina took fewer classes per semester, got a job to help pay the family bills, and took out loans for tuition and books. But she kept going, working toward her goal of being the first in her family to earn a bachelor’s degree. 

Then, in the summer of 2019, with just one semester to go, she got a letter saying she’d maxed out her student loans and couldn’t borrow any more. She had no income, no access to loans, and her parents couldn’t help. 

She found out about completion grants – one-time grants that help good students who are within a semester of graduation make it across the finish line when they have exhausted all other payment options. She applied and got two. Combined, they covered tuition and fees for her final semester and she graduated in December of 2019. “It wouldn’t have happened without that help,” she says. “I had absolutely no way of paying tuition. I thought a lot about giving up. This means everything to me.”

Student Scholarships

Other Programs

Shine a light on all areas of the university. High-achieving students, top-performing athletes and world-class faculty are only a small part of the UCF picture. There’s a whole world of good work happening out of the spotlight all over campus and many areas need your support. Not sure where to give? We can help.
