Since the Fall 2014 semester, UCF is required to 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.
