UCF Fall 2017 ucf academic calendar
It’s that time of year again – the busiest time of the year at UCF! With classes starting up and deadlines approaching, it’s important to have a clear calendar of events so you can stay on track. In this post, we’ll provide a rundown of the UCF fall 2017 academic calendar, including information on important dates and deadlines.
Fall semester overview
UCF’s Fall semester begins on August 26th and runs until December 12th. During this time, students can expect to take a variety of classes, see their professors, and complete their assignments. Here is a quick overview of what to expect:
The first week of classes is always the busiest. Many students are trying to get caught up on missed classes and get organized for the semester. This week also includes a lot of new student orientation activities, such as meeting your academic advisor and getting your syllabus.
Second week is just as busy as the first week. There is still a lot of new student orientation activities going on, but now there are also more lectures and labs. The workload in this week may seem heavier than in the first week, but it will eventually ease up.
In third week, the workload starts to ease up a bit. There are still some more lectures and labs, but it’s not as heavy as it was in second week. This is usually when students start to get serious about studying for their exams.
The final weeks of classes are usually quite relaxed. There are only a few exams left
