Experts agree. . News and World Report says we’re a “Top Tier” and a Best “National University.” The Princeton Review ranks us one of the “Best 380 Colleges”. Forbes called us a “Best Buy College.” A 2016 Cappex College Considerations Report named UCF the “top school Florida students choose”. And, The Business Journals ranked UCF #83 out of 250 top public universities in the nation. UCF is also a founding member of the University Innovation Alliance, a group of 11 public research universities working together to fuel innovation and economic growth and address nationally critical areas of work and creativity. UCF and our Alliance partners believe in making high-quality, marketable college degrees accessible to diverse students at a cost that working and middle-class families can afford.
Because the SAT and ACT measure college readiness through different means and formats, we strongly encourage you to take each exam once during the spring of your junior year in high school. You are likely to prefer (and even to perform better) on one test over the other, which would allow you to focus on that test during the fall of your senior year. Except in rare cases, you should not take either test more than three times, as significant improvements on performance are unlikely at that point.
