Critical University Policies for Faculty

This list of critical policies for university faculty is covered at New Faculty Orientation as well as adjunct and GTA orientations.

Canvas Financial Aid Requirement

Beginning in the Fall 2014 semester, UCF must comply with a federal financial aid regulation that states that in order to receive federal aid, students must be actively academically engaged (according to a federal definition) in each course in which they are enrolled. Without verification of this engagement, students will not receive their aid. Webcourses@UCF (Canvas) will analyze all student activity to determine which students have met the federal standard, and that information will be sent to the Office of Student Financial Aid for processing. Please see the Center for Distributed Learning's frequently asked questions about this requirement, as well as their overview page.

Faculty must opt-in to this feature. The tentative syllabus can only be seen by current UCF students and is not available via the public search for classes. Learn More
