Student Success and Well-Being (SSWB)

Most student-facing offices at UCF belong to a division called Student Success and Well-Being, supported by Senior Vice President for Student Success Paul Dosal. The offices listed below are part of SSWB:


Advising and Academic Coaches

Academic advising is  centralized at UCF, with advising staff called academic success coaches. This hybrid role blends expertise on a major, program, and area of expertise with improved guidance on schedule planning, academic support, career preparation. Undeclared students or those exploring majors will work with the Knights Major Exploration and Transition Center. Additional support for Student Athletes, University Honors, EXCEL, COMPASS, and for students pursuing pre-health or pre-law is provided by supplemental advising offices.
