- What is the size of the class?
The maximum class size is 25 students.
- Is the textbook included in the fee?
No, the textbook needs to be purchased separately. Please make sure the CD-Rom is included with the GMAT, GRE, and FTCE textbook. All other textbooks do not require a CD-Rom. All textbooks can be purchased at most national or local bookstores or online suppliers.
- Do I have to be a UCF Student to take the course?
No, the UCF Test Prep Review is available to anyone.
- Who is qualified for the UCF Alumni Discount?
Students who have graduated and received a degree from UCF qualify for the alumni discount. The discount is also extended to those about to graduate from UCF within the same term as the review course and current UCF Staff and Faculty members. For SAT only, the discount can be extended to children of UCF Alumni.
- What is the success rate of students after taking the test preparation classes?
We do not have statistics on the test scores because, most students take the test right after they complete the test preparation course and there is no requirement for them to report their scores to UCF Continuing Education. What we do have are extremely high indications of instructional satisfaction through documented feedback from test preparation students listed on our website.
Do you have payment plans?
Full payment is due before the class begins. If you decide to set up a payment plan, you must fill out a Deferred Payment Plan Form. Contact our office for more information and for approval.
Why is your test preparation class so much cheaper than other test preparation classes I have found?
Our goal is to offer a quality service at an affordable price and ultimately assist potential undergraduate, graduate, and professional level students with enrollment into a degree program.
Can I register for my exam with you?
We do not manage any of the actual exams. Students need to go to the selected exam's website to sign up for a test date. The links below will provide students with the most up to date details on the actual exam, testing site locations, dates, and exam fee.

Should I take the GMAT or GRE review?
The GMAT exam is required for the MBA programs and most business graduate schools. Non-business graduate schools usually require the GRE exam. Students are advised to consult with their school department to see which test scores are required.
Is the test included in the class?
Students will be given practice tests, quizzes, testing strategies, and homework assignments to prepare them for the exam. We do not administer the actual exam. The test must be arranged separately with a testing facility.
Do you offer a free practice exam?
We provide free practice exam links on each of our test preparation review pages. UCF Test Prep is not affiliated with these sites. These are references from the official testing organizations that administer each exam. We feel each will be beneficial in providing core concepts to students.
On the "Resources Tab" we have helpful tutorials to familiarize you with core mathematical concepts. These exercises are designed to explain concepts that you may have not seen for some time. There is an answer key to use with each exercise so you can check your answers.
I tried to register and make payment but the page timed out and I can't log back in. What do I do?
If you are having trouble making payment or logging in, please contact UCF Test Prep at 407-882-TEST (8378) or CEprograms@ucf.edu to complete your payment.
What do I do if I am going to miss a class session?
Please contact us if you know in advance that you will be missing a class or if you have already missed a class after the course has started and we will notify the instructor. We will work with the student based on the conditions of the absence.
Test Preparation Transfer and Refund Policy
This transfer policy applies only to the Test Prep review courses in the subject areas of GRE, GMAT, FTCE and SAT courses. For transfers related to MCAT/PCAT/OAT/DAT or LSAT courses contact our office at 407.882.TEST (8378) as all MCAT/PCAT/OAT/DAT and LSAT course transfers will need to be handled on a case-by-case basis.
All refund requests will be required to follow the Division of Continuing Education refund policy.
UCF Test Prep Administration will approve all transfer requests, and notify the student of the decision and any pertinent information. Instructors do not have the authority to make decisions on this policy. Notification to instructors does not constitute transfer from the class. The required UCF Test Prep Transfer Request Form must be completed and submitted for review.
1. Complete the transfer form: You, the student, will need to notify the Division of Continuing Education that you wish to transfer from the course that you are registered in. You will need to download the transfer form from the UCF Test Prep website. This is the first step in the process and the most essential. We will consider your transfer request active the day and time that we physically receive the signed form. Any transfer forms received outside of our regular business hours of Monday thru Friday, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM will be considered "received" on our next regular business day.
2. Payment: There will be a payment required for transferring to another course. A percentage of your registration fee will be applied as a credit to the course that you want to transfer into. The credit will be determined based on how much of the course is remaining, and not on how many classes that you have attended or missed.
We will determine the remaining time for the course from the point in time we receive the transfer form, not from the time it is dated and signed. Only class times that meet after we receive the transfer form will count as remaining course time.
This credit will be applied to the current registration fee of the course being transferred to, and any resulting remaining balance will need to be paid by the student. There will also be an additional, non-refundable, transfer fee of $50.00 (fifty dollars) that will be added to your registration fee. The $50.00 transfer fee is required to be paid regardless of how much the credit is calculated as.
Registration Fee Clarification: If you transfer to another course you will be in the same fee category as the class you are transferring from. For example, you may not transfer and switch from the regular Registration rate to the Alumni rate (unless you have graduated prior to taking the new course).
Example of How the Credit is Determined: The amount of your credit is determined by how much of the course is remaining.
- We take the number of hours for your course (ex. 24 review hour course)
- And then subtract the number of hours the course has met (ex. 2 class meeting at 4 hours each equals 8 hours that have met).
- This will give us the remaining number of hours the course has NOT met (ex. 24-8 = 16 hours).
- The remaining amount of class will then be divided by the total number of hours for the course (ex. 16/24 = 66.7%). This is the percentage of your fee that will be applied to the registration fee transfer course.
Sample: Orlando was taking the 16-hour review course, but after two class meetings Orlando decided that he wants to transfer to the 24 review hour course. Orlando paid $549 for the 16-hour review course, and the 24-hour review course fee is $700. How much will the credit be and how much will he need to pay?
Orlando's class meets for 4 hours each session and there have already been 2 class meetings, so 8 hours of the course have already met, and 8 hours or 50% of the course remains. Orlando will receive a credit for 50% of his $549 registration fee that will be applied toward the $700 registration fee for the transfer course.
After the $274.50 credit is applied, Orlando is left with a $425.50 registration fee. Once the $50.00 transfer fee is applied to the remaining registration fee of $425.50, Orlando will need to pay $475.50 for transferring into the 24-hour review course.
Transfers for LSAT and MCAT/PCAT/OAT/DAT will be handled on a case-by-case basis, please contact our office at 407.882.TEST (8378).
No portion of your registration fee can be applied to another DCE program or transferred to another person.
UCF Test Prep will not refund textbook purchases, nor will we supply the textbook for the transfer course.
