Procedures

Several of the more common advising functions are described below. For additional assistance, contact your college advising office.

Degree Audit (and similar functions)

Faculty members with Advisor access in myUCF can find at-a-glance information on student records, progress toward graduation, and other confidential information. Remember that student records (including grades) are considered FERPA-protected information, and should be kept private.

To access a student's information:

  1. Log in to myUCF.
  2. Under "Faculty/Advisor Self-Service" in the top-left menu, select "Advisors."
  3. If you haven't been assigned students specifically, click on "View Any Student" and enter the student's ID number or last name to search for the student.
  4. The Advisee Student Center will load, which will display some personal information right away. More academic records (such as degree audits or grades) can be found under the pulldown menu labeled "Other Academic."

If you do not have a link for Advisors under "Faculty/Advisor Self-Service," speak with your department chair to obtain access.

Student Questions to be Referred to College Advising Offices

Many student questions are best referred to the College Advising Office (and faculty should always feel free to contact their College Advising Office if in doubt). The following are student situations that should be referred to the College Advising Office directly:

  • Withdraw from a class
  • Grade Forgiveness
  • Degree Audit
  • Change Major
  • Probation
  • File "Intent to Graduate" Form
