Daughters, sons, granddaughters, grandsons, step-children and step-grandchildren of a UCF graduate are considered UCF Alumni Legacies.
Unfortunately, no. Due to strict state and local admissions policies and procedures, special consideration to any candidate is prohibited. However, being a Legacy does have its privileges, such as the College Admissions Workshop.
Absolutely not! Being a Legacy of another university plays no part in the admissions process.
There sure are! UCF Alumni awards more than $40,000 in scholarships each year to undergraduate and graduate students. One of those scholarships is the UCF Alumni Legacy Scholarship, which is specifically for children whose parent(s) or legal guardian(s) is a UCF graduate.
The Parent and Family Philanthropy Council is a leadership board for parent’s of UCF students who serve a one-year renewable term. Members enjoy developing a connection with the university and with each other, and many parent volunteers choose to stay active on the committee even after their children graduate.
The Council’s goals are to raise awareness, increase philanthropic support, and become more involved with the university to enhance the UCF experience for all Knights.

Give to the Parent and Family Philanthropy Council
Last year, almost 2,000 parents gave about $1.4 million to support important student programs like Knight Watch, for those first-time-in-college students who face academic challenges; Knights Helping Knights Pantry, which provides food, clothing and toiletries to students in need; and Career Services, to help Knights prepare for their professional careers after graduation.
Please join other UCF Parents and Knight Watch to support student programs through the Parent & Family Fund.
