In Response to Recent Tragic Events

UCF Cares stands in solidarity and empathy with our students, staff and faculty, and members of the entire UCF community who are being directly or indirectly impacted by current racially motivated events. 

 Our communities are hurting because of the re-opening of deep racial wounds on top of the many losses caused by COVID-19. This is causing profound psychological impact and trauma on our mental health. UCF has resource to support students during this difficult time. Please reach out if you would like to get support for this or other issues by connecting with Student Care Services at 407-823-5607 or CAPS at 407-823-2811.

Report or Refer

We encourage our community of Knights to reach out for support and report or refer a student of concern, dangerous or disruptive behavior, issues of academic misconduct, or other behavior that may negatively impact the campus community and beyond. Some of these reporting options and resources are confidential. If you have questions or concerns about which may be the appropriate reporting option, do not hesitate to contact UCF Cares to learn more.

Please remember, these reporting forms are not monitored 24/7. If this is an emergency or you need immediate assistance, please call 911 or the 24 hour crisis hotline at 407-823-2811.

Report a Student of Concern

The Student of Concern Process allows students, staff, faculty, and UCF community members to report concerning behavior exhibited by a student. If you are aware that a student is experiencing challenges or difficulties that concern you, please report the concern using the Student of Concern Form. The entire UCF community will benefit. It is our goal to intervene before the student reaches a crisis level. Examples of concerning behavior includes but is not limited to the following: a student exhibiting behavior significantly out of character, acting peculiar (and this is cause for alarm), displaying unhealthy or dangerous patterns of behavior, or continuing to seem distressed despite prior referrals made.

Report a Student Conduct Incident

The Office of Student Conduct handles complaints against University of Central Florida students and student groups but not faculty or staff. The complaint must indicate a possible violation of one or more of the Rules of Conduct or Conduct Regulations of Student Organizations located in the Golden Rule Student Handbook.

Report a Violation of Academic Misconduct

When an instructor becomes aware of an alleged violation of student academic behavior standards and before any academic action is taken, the instructor must decide if the behavior warrants formal documentation through the Alleged Academic Misconduct Report (AAMR) Form by identifying the alleged misconduct violations and proposing course sanctions. Academic misconduct includes but is not limited to cheating, plagiarism, assisting another in cheating or plagiarism, and commercial use of academic materials.

Report a Title IX incident (Sexual Misconduct and/or Interpersonal Violence)

Title IX protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive federal financial assistance. Sex-based discrimination can include sexual assault, relationship abuse, stalking, and sexual harassment, which the Golden Rule Student Handbook categorizes as sexual misconduct and/or interpersonal violence. All disclosures of these types of incidents are taken seriously.

File a Police Report

UCF Police Department patrols and operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Contact us anytime at (407) 823-5555. In an emergency, dial 911.
