SET stands for Student Enhancement Training. The SET curriculum includes experiential, in-person training and interactive online courses. The program will consist of four core classes.

The purpose of SET is for UCF students to gain practical knowledge and to develop evidenced skills that directly shape their role as an SDES leader. By completing this program, students will also develop transferable expertise to advance their career at UCF and beyond.

The SET program is only available to SDES student employees or peer educators.

Students will not register with SET.  Students will need to communicate with their supervisors once they complete the core four training.  It is encouraged supervisors keep track of the student training progress.

Students have to complete the program within one academic year.

Yes, this is a possibility. It would require prior approval from the SET steering committee. Email set@ucf.edu.
