Report a Student of Concern
Student Care Services provides one-on-one support, including guidance, resources, and referrals when UCF students are experiencing significant difficulties related to mental health, physical health, personal and family emergencies, financial issues or other areas of concern. Student Care Services is committed to assisting UCF Knights successfully navigate the UCF campus. Care Coordinators provide resources and information to help connect students to the abundance of available resources, while prioritizing student well-being and academic success.

- Mental health concern
- Physical health/medical concern
- Loss of family member or friend
- Adjustment concern (e.g., social issues, relationship or family concerns)
- Shelter, food or financial insecurity
- Other concern about overall well-being (e.g., interpersonal violence, sexual assault, safety concerns, etc.)
Student Care Services does not provide crisis and life-threatening emergency support. Always call 911 in a life-threatening emergency or if the situation presents an immediate danger. Student Care Services is not counseling, therapy or academic advising. Care coordinators have the opportunity to develop helping relationships with UCF students while coaching students toward appropriate self-care and self-advocacy. If a student is in distress and needs to speak with a counselor on duty, call UCF Counseling and Psychological Services 24/7 at 407-823-2811. Care coordinators are mandatory reporters: If a care coordinator becomes aware of an instance of discrimination or retaliation, they must report to UCF’s Office of Institutional Equity & Title IX.
When referral forms are received, Student Care Services will:
- Review your referral form and assign it to the appropriate Student Care Services staff member.
- Reach out to students or referring party as needed via phone or email.
- Meet with students in-person, via phone or remotely to discuss concerns as needed to connect them to on campus and/or off campus resources.
- Identify the next best course of action – including, but not limited to referring a student to on-campus or off-campus partners, discussing appropriate options, developing an action plan for personal and academic success, monitoring behavior and providing wrap-around support.
Report a Student Conduct Incident
Student Conduct and Academic Integrity 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 Organizational Rules of Conduct 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 Sexual Misconduct/Sexual Harassment (Title IX Incident Report)
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.
