Graduate Student Association

Welcome to GSA!

The UCF Graduate Student Association (GSA) is the representative organization for UCF’s graduate student body. GSA provides academic and professional development opportunities, organizes social events, and advocates for all 8,500+ graduate students at UCF. The GSA is the only university level organization run by and for graduate students – so we need YOU to help us make your voice heard. All graduate students are automatically considered members of the GSA and we also welcome undergraduate students who are interested in learning more about graduate school. Here are ways that you can get involved and take advantage of your GSA membership:

Apply for a SGA Graduate Senate Seat

Student Body Senate is composed of sixty-six student leaders, who are elected by the student body each year. Out of the sixty-six Student leader seats, there are nine Graduate Senate seats. Senate provides students and organizations with the funds necessary for travel and conference registration, as well as for campus-wide events and projects. Also, through various committees, Senate has a great impact on issues that directly regard the Student Body. Student Senators also work on college-specific and/or campus-wide initiatives that better the student experience for UCF Knights!

We love (and need) to hear from you! We do our best to meet the needs of our graduate student body, but we can’t do it without you. Please share your thoughts about how we can help to improve your graduate student experience. Email us at with any questions, comments, or concerns.
