DirectConnect to UCF

If you are pursuing your bachelor’s degree, the DirectConnect to UCF program allows you to take your first two years at LSSC and then finish your bachelor’s degree at UCF. This is a cost savings of nearly 50 percent for taking the first two years of classes here instead of at UCF. Plus, UCF’s own data shows that students who transfer through DirectConnect finish faster and with a higher GPA than students who completed all four years at UCF. That’s proof of the quality education you will receive here.
