Free Scantrons and Blue Books
Since its inception, the SGA “Free Scantron Initiative” has provided Scantrons, free of cost, to tens of thousands of students each year. While the program’s primary intention was to encourage students to seek out the SGA office and meet their representatives, it quickly evolved into a service that students relied on. In 2011, the McCann-Brock Administration extended this service to include free blue books, fulfilling the needs of students in different disciplines.
SGA wants students to succeed in their classes, and providing testing materials free of charge is just one way we work towards that goal. Additionally, SGA provides a variety of scholarships each semester, for a broad range of students. We also provide free printing (see below), 24-hour study spaces, and a partnership with Knack, an on-demand peer-to-peer tutoring app. Several times throughout the semseter, we provide free breakfast to students at our Brain Food events, to keep your mind fueled during classes, exams, homework, and projects, so check out our calendar for Brain Food events and others!
How do I get a free Scantron/Blue Book?
Scantrons and blue books can be picked up at the SGA office during regular office hours (8am-5pm Mon-Fri), or at the Student Union’s information desk after 5pm (Mon-Fri). Just bring your UCF Student ID!
How many can I get?
You may pick up one free scantron or blue book per day. If you have more than one scantron/blue book exam on a single day, be sure to plan ahead! In case of emergency, scantrons can still be purchased in several vending machines on campus, and at the bookstore. SGA wishes you good luck on your exam!
