The Environmental Specialization Program provides recognition for the environmental interests, dedication, and accomplishments of UCF undergraduate and graduate students by offering a green cord for their graduation ceremony in addition to a certificate from the Office of undergraduate Studies.  Upon completion, students are able to include the certification on résumés as well as exhibit a comprehensive portfolio.


The ESP requirements can be completed over the course of any number of semesters at UCF; all requirements do not need to be satisfied within one year. Applications are to be submitted one month prior to end of applicant’s graduating semester. If student has successfully completed the ESP portfolio early, student must hold off submitting the ESP until their graduating semester. The Environmental Specialization Program is a one-time application that is awarded upon a graduation.

Students wishing to complete  or learn more about the Environmental Specialization Program should contact the Unifying Theme Assistant, Juan Lugo,  via e-mail []
