Since its inception, the SG “Free Scantron Initiative” has provided Scantrons, free of cost, to tens of thousands of students each year. While the program’s primary intention was to encourage students to seek out the SG office and meet their representatives, it quickly evolved into a service that students relied on. In 2011, the McCann-Brock Administration extended this service to include free blue books (now green books), fulfilling the needs of students in different disciplines.

SG wants students to succeed in their classes, and providing testing materials free of charge is just one way we work towards that goal. Additionally, SG provides a variety of scholarships each semester, for a broad range of students. We also provide free printing (see below). Several times throughout the semester, we provide free breakfast to students at our Brain Food events, to keep your mind fueled during classes, exams, homework, and projects, so check out our calendar for Kram for the exam events and others!

How do I get a free Scantron/Green Book?

Scantrons and Green Books can be picked up during regular business hours at any of the following locations. Just bring your UCF Student ID!

  • Student Government Office (Student Union Suite 346)
  • Student Union Information Desk
  • Office of Student Involvement (Student Union Suite 208)

How many can I get?

Students will now be able to pick up any combination of 30 scantrons (pink or brown) throughout a semester as well as up to 4 greenbooks. Additionally, students will be able to pick up up to 3 items per day through the Spring Semester.

Scantrons and Green Books can still be purchased in several vending machines on campus and at the bookstore. SG wishes you good luck on your exam!

What’s a Green Book?

A Green Book is just like a traditional Blue Book used for written exams, but it’s made of 30% post-consumer recycled paper! Cool, huh?
