Academic Program Orientations

Bachelor of Arts/Science in Criminal Justice
The Criminal Justice program can be pursued face-to-face, online or students may elect to take courses both in-class and online. Those who expect to take any classes face-to-face must attend the traditional University wide orientation, and are required to schedule a time and date with the UCF Orientation Office once accepted to the University.   At  the general UCF orientation, students will also attend a 1 hour  Criminal Justice orientation session where they will meet the Undergraduate Program Coordinator and the Coordinator of Academic Support/Department Advisor.  Students will receive an informational packet describing all degree requirements, as well as the various  programs (Scholars Track, Senior Scholar Program, Study Abroad Program, Internships and Certificates).  Students choosing the online option must complete the online University orientation and the Criminal Justice online orientation.  For more information about the Criminal Justice program, please contact the department at  407-823-2603.
