Welcome to SDES


Student Development and Enrollment Services is dedicated to making the UCF experience the best it can be. From enrollment through graduation, and even as our Knights make their way into the global workforce, students have access to diverse SDES programs and services that have received a range of accolades.

SDES is run by over 690 committed staff and more than 2,200 student employees, who are here to guide students every step of the way. We have a strong network to empower students for success and are backed by partnerships on campus, in the Central Florida community and within the state of Florida.

The UCF Creed—Integrity, Scholarship, Community, Creativity and Excellence—serves as our framework, and SDES has developed student learning objectives based on these values. All departments within SDES are developing student learning outcomes to support these objectives, which in turn help students succeed academically and become productive citizens and future leaders.
