Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)
While experiencing a new country and culture is exciting, it is normal to experience culture shock. CAPS can support you as you prepare to adjust to a new country, as well as when you are settling back into life at UCF. 

Student Health Services (Travel Clinic)
Available for students traveling or studying abroad, the Travel Clinic will provide you with the latest information from the Centers for Disease Control. The Travel Clinic Provider will provide you with counseling on: tips for a safe and healthy trip; recommended and required vaccinations; risks associated with diseases and epidemics; food, water and health precautions; and what to include in a travel kit. Be sure to schedule your appointment 6-8 weeks prior to your departure. 

The SPOT
The SPOT, located on Main Campus in the John T. Washington Center, can help with all of your passport needs. As a designated Passport Acceptance Facility by the U.S. Department of State, students, faculty, staff, and members of the community are able to apply for a passport directly through their office. Also, The SPOT can provide photo services for your passport, visa, and other application needs.

Office of Student Financial Assistance
Do you have questions about how your financial aid package will apply to a specific study abroad program? Due to the various program types and nuances of each student's financial aid package, it is crucial that you meet with UCF Abroad first to select a program before asking how financial aid will be handled. Once a program has been selected, be sure to schedule an appointment with our contact in the Office of Student Financial Assistance at SFAStudyAbroad@ucf.edu
