What is the Pegasus Path?
You’re in the driver’s seat with Pegasus Path, a new interactive degree planning tool that will help you get from orientation to graduation. This tool integrates with your myKnight Audit to suggest courses in your academic plan so you can graduate within four years on a schedule that works for you.
Note: Pegasus Path is currently only available to select programs. See if your program is eligible.
How it Benefits You
Pegasus Path is an interactive and comprehensive degree planning tool that integrates academic program requirements and co-curricular activities into an optimal pathway to success.
Based on your major, the Pegasus Path will guide you to plan your entire time at UCF semester-by-semester. It includes a recommended sequence of required courses, academic milestones and suggested high-impact practices and co-curricular learning experiences. Remember the myKnight Audit is UCF’s official degree certification tool. Use it to confirm your progress toward completing your degree requirements.
UCF Undergraduates with declared majors will have access to the tool in phases based on their major. In fall 2019, all students will have access. Advisors and faculty advisors will also be able to run the plan with their students.
Pegasus Path is available on both desktop and mobile.
To access the desktop version, login to myUCF, select Student Self-Service from the left sidebar and navigate to Student Center. Pegasus Path will be listed under the Academics section at the top.
The mobile version can be found by logging in to the myUCF app and selecting the Pegasus Path icon.
These tools work together. Pegasus Path is a planning tool that uses the information from your degree plan and recommends the sequence of courses to fulfill general education, major and minor requirements. Your path takes into account completed courses, transfer and IB/AP credits.
MyKnight Audit tracks your degree requirements and what you have completed. MyKnight Audit will remain the official tool for degree certification and program requirements.
MySchedule Builder will enable you to determine the dates/times classes are offered and schedule the class that best meets your schedule.
Not all courses with credits earned and reflected in myKnight Audit will appear in the Pegasus Path. If you have any questions, please contact your advisor.
Transferred courses that are included in your myKnight Audit and listed on your transcript are part of your Pegasus Path plan. Transfer credits are part of your Pegasus Path Report and are viewable in the Overview section of your plan.
No. You must use myUCF online or contact your advisor. When it’s officially registered, Pegasus Path will re-calibrate your plan to include the new information.
If you are considering a major/minor change, the “What-If?” function creates a what-if scenario that shows you how your completed credits would apply to the new program of study. Keep in mind that this is just a planning function, and any what if reports you run will not change your major/minor.
A degree audit for the classes you have planned in Pegasus Path. This function is for planning purposes only.
No. You must first meet with your advisor and then file an intent to graduate in myUCF. Visit commencement.ucf.edu for additional information.
The Pegasus Path report displays a semester-by-semester sequence of courses that have been completed with their grades if applicable, in progress, or planned.
All declared majors and minors are built into your plan.
You must declare a major or have earned an associate degree to use most of the functions in Pegasus Path, but undeclared majors can run what-if reports.
The Pegasus Path makes recommendations and provides guidance. You own your path to graduation and should adjust your plan to meet your planned graduation date. It will re-calibrate to reflect your updates.
Your plan will include up-to-date program requirements, curriculum and academic policy changes.
Use mySchedule Builder to determine the dates/times classes are offered and select the class that best meets your schedule
If you did not pass a course that satisfies a specific requirement, the class will be added to your plan and will recalibrate your plan.
These are high-impact practices such as capstone courses, internships, co-ops, clinicals and study abroad, some of which may be a graduation requirement. The tool also suggests co-curricular experiences such as joining a student organization or participating in student government.
Meeting with an advisor is critical. They will provide you with invaluable information about courses and available resources. It is a task in Pegasus Path plan.
