President's Message

Welcome to the College of Central Florida!

At CF, you can find yourself, create yourself and be yourself. And we will help you get where you’re going — whether it’s into a high-skill, high-wage career or continuing your education at University of Central Florida with our DirectConnect to UCF guaranteed admission  program, University of Florida,  where our CF graduates have a high acceptance rate, or to one of our own bachelor’s degree programs. 

Our small classes create a rewarding learning experience that gives you the opportunity to interact with your professors and peers in a receptive environment. You can tailor your education to meet your needs. Take classes online or in person and choose from more than 70 academic pathways.
What you learn in the classroom can be enhanced by what you learn outside of class. Cultivate your interests and expand your culture by visiting the Appleton Museum of Art or experience student theatrical performances, foreign films, classical concerts and lectures from visiting professors.  CF also offers more than 50 student clubs, leadership development, one of the best intercollegiate athletics programs in the country and intramural sports.

CF continues to be recognized for quality and affordability. We are among the top 150 community colleges in the nation, according to the Aspen Institute, and we are ranked the No. 20 most affordable college in the nation by the U.S. Department of Education. CF also offers more than $1 million in scholarships to students each year. 

It is great to be a CF Patriot. Here’s to a happy and successful 2016-2017 academic year!


James D. Henningsen, Ed.D.

President, College of Central Florida
