Now that you have the University of Florida's undergraduate catalog, you might like help in using it. Ac-
cording to Webster, a catalog is a complete enumeration of things arranged systematically with descriptive
detail. But to find exactly what you want to know it helps to know the system.

This undergraduate catalog is organized into three main sections. The first explains the University ad-
ministration as it relates to the student; the second presents a description of the academic units, and the
third section lists the course descriptions. Other information is provided including a calendar of critical
dates at the front and a listing of faculty and administrators in the back. An index is placed at the end of
the catalog.

In addition to general information about the University as a whole, the first section has specific details
about admission, expenses, housing, academic regulations and student life.

A student at the University registers each semester in one of 18 colleges or schools. The second section
of the catalog explains the program in each of these academic units. Major fields of study, degrees offered,
requirements for admission or graduation for this unit and other pertinent information are located here.
The second section should help the student determine an academic program for a bachelor's degree.
Here you learn about the individual departments of the colleges, something of the philosophy on which the
curriculum is based and the career or competence toward which this training is aimed.

The third section lists the actual courses and their descriptions. This part is set up alphabetically by de-
partments of instruction. It tells you which undergraduate courses will be taught in each of the semesters.
This section is partially in a code (course prefix aiad number) which identifies the statewide course number
and the University of Florida designation.

4 For example, ZO 20t4 is shorthand for the course Principles of Animal Biology. Following the title are
theattters F, S, SS-meanin1 i, is offered In' each of the semesters-Fall, Spring and Summer. The course .car-

alJ.d-G6M 2042L (t6eera C mistry);'meaning they must be completed satisfactorily before registration for
ZOO 2014.'A separate schedule of courses is printed each semester and used in conjunction with the catalog
during registration.

; UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA


FLORIDAS FIRST UNIVERSITY


A COMPLETE UNIVERSITY
Florida's first, the University of Florida is also one of
America's truly distinctive universities. Along with Ohio
State and the University of Minnesota, the University of Flor-
ida offers more academic programs on a single campus than
any of the nation's other universities, private and public. It is
also among the nation's 25 largest universities; yet its
division into 19 colleges and schools, with their 140 depart-
ments, gives students the opportunity to know and work
closely with most of their classmates and teachers. Its loca-
tion in Florida's University City Gainesville, dedicated
from its founding to serve as a home away from home 'for
college students adds immeasurably to the educational
and social opportunities for students.
In short, the University of Florida is a residential campus,
with rich resources available because of its size, that pro-
vides a learning and living environment for the whole per-
son: Daily contacts in class, in clubs, between classes and
in dormitories and apartments with other students from
every spectrum of society and with virtually every career
goal known to humanity .... Daily opportunities to attend
concerts, theater productions, art shows, seminars, athletic
contests, lectures, and a myriad of other events featuring na-
tionally and internationally known talents ... Daily com-
munications with a faculty that is comprised of some of the
nation's leading scholars in their fields, working in labora-


stories and libraries among the best in the nation. More than
1,400 faculty members and graduate students are awarded
research and training grants annually, ranking the University
of Florida among the nation's top 40 research universities.

UNDERGRADUATE OPPORTUNITIES
Because it is a complete university freshmen through
professional and postdoctoral the University of Florida of-
fers more for its undergraduate students.
Undergraduates aspiring for graduate or professional de-
grees can study in libraries and laboratories equipped for
almost every advanced degree offered anywhere in the
world. They study alongside advanced graduate and pro-
fessional students. They can begin their research as early as
they desire, even as freshmen. They can receive counseling
from a faculty that has been assembled from major univer-
sities in the nation and the world. The University of Florida
ranks among the nation's top 25 universities whose
bachelor's degree holders move into graduate programs. Its
preparatory programs are recognized by the world's leading.
universities.
Students desiring only bachelor's degrees can choose from
111 majors, almost all of them strengthened by correlative
graduate degree programs. This means students can enrich
their bachelor's degree programs with advanced courses de-










signed for both undergraduates and graduates. It also means
a wider selection of course opportunities outside a student's
major field of study. Above all, it means an undergraduate
student pursues his studies in a complete academic atmos-
phere.


COSMOPOLITAN STUDENT BODY
Students attending the University of Florida come from
every county in the state, every state in the nation, and last
year from 90 foreign countries. Seventy-five per cent of its
entering freshmen earned admission test scores above the
national average. Thirty-eight per cent of the under-
graduates are transfers from community and other colleges.
They experience no difficulty competing academically with
students who begin their work at the University of Florida.
The University of Florida ranks seventh among state univer-
sities and 18th among all universities in the nation in the
number of National Merit and Merit Achievement Scholars
who choose to attend. But the University of Florida is not an
elitist university. And it does not want to be. Ten per cent of
its limited beginning freshmen spaces are held open for stu-
dents who do not qualify academically for admission to a
Florida state university. These students, and any others who
desire, are offered special instructional programs to help
them progress scholastically. These programs have the cen-
tral goal of equipping students with the ability to complete
their degrees.


LEADERSHIP TRAINING
Perhaps above all else, the University of Florida offers its
students leadership training and experience. Its results are
proven. More then half of Florida's Cabinet members, in-
cluding the Governor, are UF graduates, as are approx-
imately one-third of the state senators, members of the state
House of Representatives, Floridians in the U.S. Congress
and state Supreme Court justices. Half of ten persons named
in 1978 as Fldrida's most influential governmental, pro-
fessional and business persons had attended the University
of Florida. Thousands of other Florida graduates occupy key
positions in every known professional endeavor throughout
the state, in the nation and in many parts of the world.
There are reasons behind the University of Florida's lead-
ership training success. The contained campus in a larger
community whose principal focus is on the University -
provides thousands of leadership opportunities. Student
Government at the University of Florida is one of the
nation's most independent and influential. Every college has
its own student council. Almost every committee for g6v-
ernance of the University as a whole and there are dozens
of them have student members. The University turns
many of its activities over to students to implement. Stu-
dents serve on advisory boards and councils in city and
county government. Hundreds of students are employed in
career-developing positions and serve internships in
Gainesville area institutions. More than 300 student organi-
zations, plus fraternities and sororities, require full slates of
officers. Virtually every academic offering provides oppor-
tunity for membership in chapters of national student organ-
izations. Churches and civic groups in the community pro-
vide special programs and opportunities just for University
of Florida students. More than 500 participate in a student
volunteer action* organization, providing companionship
and assistance to children, the elderly, the handicapped, the
incarcerated, the underprivileged and the lonely in 14 sepa-
rate programs. It is the largest student volunteer action
group in the nation. A nationally-recognized Student Serv-
ices Office offers counseling programs for dozens of special
student problems both academic and personal as well
as leadership training programs.


A FUN PLACE
And, yes, the University of Florida believes students
should have fun while pursuing their degrees. First, students


enjoy their studies. Ask almost any University of Florida stu-
dent, "What's with you?," and the greatest chance is that he
or she will respond with a comment about course work. Sec-
ond, students enjoy one another. The way they live in res-
idence halls, apartment complexes and as a dominant popu-
lation group in the larger community guarantees that.
Third, the University and the community provide recrea-
tional and social opportunities by the scores. More than
16,000 people a day use the centrally-located student union
on campus. Outdoor recreational courts, pools and fields
abound, not only on campus but throughout the com-
munity. More than 1,000 persons are able to engage simulta-
neously in eight different athletic and recreational activities
in the new Stephen C. O'Connell Student Activities Center.
Entertainment of every description is nightly and every
weekend fare, both on the campus and in the community,
which gears itself to student interests because of the pre-
ponderance of students in it. A full program of men's and
women's intercollegiate athletics insures one or more major
spectator games per week. More than seventy-five per cent
of the Student Body participated last year on 1,401 intra-
mural teams. Gainesville is in the heart of Florida's rolling
woods, lakes, springs and river country. And its equidistant
- only an hour's drive from the fishing and boating Gulf
Coast and the swimming, surfing and beaching Atlantic
Coast. Big name music stars and their bands are brought to
campus for concerts almost weekly by Student Government
Productions. Students themselves have numerous op-
portunities to perform in local music groups and stage plays,
to exhibit their arts and crafts, to write for several student-
operated publications and to pursue hobby interests of ev-
ery description.
This, in summary, is the University of Florida, Florida's first
and one of the nation's most distinctive universities. And
more than anything else, a University putting the interests of
the individual student ahead of anything else.

General Information


HISTORICAL NOTE
The University of Florida is a combined state University
and land-grant college located in the northern center of the
State. While its beginnings go back to the days previous to
Florida's admission to the Union in 1845, its first college -
the College of Arts and Sciences did not open until 1853.
A few years later the passage of the Morrill Act provided
lands for state institutions of higher learning which would
promote agriculture, mechanical arts and military science,
resulting in the beginnings of the College of Agriculture, the
College of Engineering, and the Agricultural Experiment Sta-
tion.
By 1905 there were a half-dozen state-supported institu-
tions of higher learning in Florida, located in various parts of
the State and struggling for existence. At that time the Flor-
ida Legislature took a step unprecedented in the history of
education in any state by passing the Buckman Act, which
abolished the six State Colleges and provided for the estab-
lishment of two new institutions, of which the University of
Florida was one. It was established for men, at Gainesville,
and placed under the direction of the Board of Control, a
body created by the Buckman Act. The seven members of
the board represented the seven geographical sections of
the state, and served without compensation, except for
travel and incidental expense incurred in the performance of
duty. In 1947 the University was made coeducational. The
nine-member Board of Regents replaced the Board of Con-
trol in 1965. An additional regent has represented students
since 1977.


SETTING AND ENVIRONMENT
The University of Florida is located in Gainesville, a city of
86,929 situated in north central Florida, midway between the
Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico. The city is known as an
agricultural and small industrial center.
In addition to a moderate climate, Gainesville offers many
other advantages to students of the University. A golf course
is within easy reach of the campus, and swimming and boat-
ing accommodations are available at nearby springs and
rivers. The lakes in the vicinity abound in fresh water fish,
while the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico are within
a two hours' drive. As the seat of Alachua County, the city is
the focal point of diversified industrial and farming ac-
tivities.
Practically every religious denomination is represented in
the Gainesville area including: Presbyterian, Baptist, Luther-
an, Methodist, Catholic, Episcopal, Christian, Seventh Day
Adventist, Church of Christ Scientist, Church of Christ,
Christian and Missionary Alliance, Advent Christian, Jewish,
Church of Latter Day Saints, Church of the Nazarene, As-
sembly of God, Apostolic Church of Christ, Church of God,
Disciples of Christ, Pentecostal Holiness, United Church of
Christ, and Unitarian-Universalists. Several of these de-
nominations maintain chapels adjacent to the campus.
These include St..Augustine Chapel (Catholic Student Cen-
ter), the Baptist Student Union, Wesley Foundation (Meth-
odist Student Center), Chapel of the Incarnation (Episcopal
Student Center), Church of Christ, B'nai B'rith Hillel Founda-
tion (Jewish), the Lutheran Student Association, the Latter
Day Saints (Mormon), Disciples-Presbyterian Student Cen-
ter and the Society of Friends.(Quaker). All the chapels carry
on extensive programs of vital interest to University stu-
dents.


TRANSPORTATION
A schedule of daily bus service, with connections to all
points of the United States, is maintained by Southeastern
Greyhound Lines and Trailways Bus System. The Regional
Transit system has nine busses serving the city of Gainesville.
Eastern Airlines serves Gainesville with daily flights with
connections to all parts of the U.S. Charter Air and Air Flor'
ida serve all major areas of the state.


GOVERNMENT OF THE
UNIVERSITY
Direct supervision over the University of Florida, its poli-
cies and affairs, is vested in the Board of Regents, a body
composed of nine citizens who are appointed by the Gov-
ernor for nine-year terms and one student appointed for one
year. University affairs are administered by the president
with the advice and assistance of the University Senate and
various committees elected by the senate and appointed by
the president.


ADMINISTRATIVE AFFAIRS
THE VICE PRESIDENT FOR ADMINISTRATIVE AFFAIRS is
the chief business officer of the University. He is responsible
for establishing policy relating to university business mat-
ters; coordinating the preparation of and control of the oper-
ating budget; collecting and disbursing funds in accordance
with state statutes; managing campus security, auxiliary serv-
ices and the maintenance of the physical plant and grounds;
directing purchasing, the administrative computer, staff per-
sonnel and property control, and environmental health and
safety.


ACADEMIC AFFAIRS
THE VICE PRESIDENT FOR ACADEMIC AFFAIRS is the
chief academic officer for the University. In this capacity he
supervises the allocation of resources in the academic areas,
the improvement of instruction, the correlation of instruc-
tional activities, the development and improvement of re-
search activities, the evaluation of university academic ac-
tivity, and the establishment of policy with respect to em-
ployment, promotion, and tenure of the academic staff. In
the absence of the President and Executive Vice President he
acts with the authority and responsibility of the President.


STUDENT AFFAIRS
THE VICE PRESIDENT FOR STUDENT AFFAIRS is the chief
student affairs officer for the university. He is responsible for
administering the various offices and departments which de-
liver out-of-class services to students. He is also responsible
for establishing policy relating to student affairs matters. Ac-
tivities in this area include orientation, career and coopera-
tive education, placement, health services, recreation, finan-
cial aid, housing, individual and group counseling, student
organizations, the Reitz Union, judicial programs and lead-
ership training. A complete section on Student Affairs fol-
lows in this catalog.


SEMESTER SYSTEM
The University of Florida operates on a semester system.
The academic year begins in August and ends the following
August. During this period there are two semesters averag-
ing 15 weeks of instruction plus a week of final examinations
and two six weeks summer terms. Semesters begin in August
and January with the first summer term beginning in May
and the second beginning in June. In most colleges of the
University courses are scheduled in such a way that a stu-
dent may enter in any term and proceed normally through
an appropriate sequence of courses. Consult the individual
college sections of the catalog to determine programs that
begin only in designated terms.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONAL
UNITS SERVING ALL
COLLEGES AND SCHOOLS
THE INTERCOLLEGE DEPARTMENT OF COMPUTER AND
INFORMATION SCIENCES. During the last three decades
electronic information processing machines with capability
many orders of magnitude beyond their predecessors have
come into being. Though still in their infancy they are al-
ready extending man's capability to solve problems in every
field of human activity. Against this background, the organi-
zation of a curriculum dedicated to a broad sector of human
endeavor was necessary. Toward. this end the Intercollege
Department of Computer and Information Sciences was
created in 1971. The department currently offers degree pro-
grams in the Colleges of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Business
Administration, Engineering and an area of specialization in
the technical communications degree program in the Col-
lege of Journalism and Communications. Degree programs
within other colleges are under study.
Subject areas found within the CIS curricula include pro-
gramming, systems analysis, software development tech-
niques, information representation and transformation, lan-
guage translators, operating systems, computer organization,
and applications.
This background prepares the student for a wide range of
careers in the business, industrial, scientific, civic and aca-
demic worlds wherein information flow and analysis is of
critical importance to decision making.
In addition to the degree programs, several service courses
are available for those who need experience in computer ap-
plications for proper career preparation. For further informa-
tion, contact the CIS department office in 512 Weil Hall.
THE CENTER FOR LATIN AMERICAN STUDIES is the Uni-
versity unit responsible for directing or coordinating in-
terdisciplinary instructional and research programs related
to the Latin American area. It is a budgeted unit within the
University and is administered by a Director immediately re-
sponsible to the Vice President for Academic Affairs.
The Center sponsors conferences, publishes the results of
scholarly research related to Latin America, and cooperates
with other University units in overseas development and
training programs. It administers a program with Univer-
sidad de los Andes, Bogota, Colombia and a program in Bra-
zil for the State University System and offers programs in
Latin American Studies leading to a B.A. degree, and B.S.,
M.A. and Ph.D. Certificates in Latin American Studies; an in-
terdisciplinary Master of Arts in Latin American Studies; and,
a M.A. and Ph.D. Certificate in Latin American Demographic
Studies.
The DEPARTMENT OF MILITARY SCIENCE offers the four
year program and the two year program of Army ROTC.
Completion of either of these programs by a student leads to
being commissioned in one of the branches of the United
States Army Reserve or the Regular Army. Freshman/Sopho-
more AROTC carries no service obligation. One, two, three
and four year scholarships are available to interested stu-
dents who can qualify.
THE DEPARTMENT OF NAVAL SCIENCE offers a two-year
and a four-year program of Navy-Marine ROTC. Upon suc-
cessful completion of this officer training program, the grad-
uate receives a commission in the U.S. Navy or U.S. Marine
Corps and is immediately assigned to active duty. Scholar-


ships covering two, three, or four full years of study are avail-
able to male and female students who can qualify.
THE DEPARTMENT OF AEROSPACE STUDIES offers male
and female students both two-year and four-year programs
in Air Force ROTC. Completion of either of these officer ed-
ucation programs leads to a commission in the United States
Air Force. Two, Three and Four year scholarships are avail-
able on a competitive basis to students enrolled in .the pro-
gram. Qualified individuals may compete for Pilot Training
assignments and begin learning to fly during their Senior
Year.
THE DEPARTMENT OF MUSIC has the responsibility for
such musical organizations as the University Bands, Or-
chestras, Choruses, and Glee Clubs, and offers courses in the
following areas: (1) Theory of Music, (2) Composition, (3)
History and Literature, (4) Applied Music, (5) Church Music,
(6) Music Education, (7) Opera Workshop and (8) En-
sembles.
THE DEPARTMENT OF GENERAL PHYSICAL EDUCATION
OFFERS a wide variety of physical activity courses to all stu-
dents enrolled at the University. The Department operates
on the premise that although all people need physical ac-
tivity, all do not need or care for the same kind. Conse-
quently, the department offers many avenues for the stu-
dent to enhance physical health and understand its relation
to total health.
It is hoped that by developing competencies in at least
one physical activity, students will be able to make self-de-
termining decisions concerning the role that exercise will
play in their personal lives.
Students may elect to take any course under the
satisfactory-unsatisfactory option. For further information
see course offerings and descriptions under the General
Physical Education heading in this catalog.


INSTRUCTIONAL SERVICE UNITS
THE OFFICE OF INSTRUCTIONAL RESOURCES en-
courages experimentation in teaching and individualized
services to students. Reporting directly to the Office of Aca-
demic Affairs, it provides support for the innovation of alter-
native approaches to instruction in the colleges and depart-
ments of the University; assists faculty members in the de-
velopment of instructional modules or systems for specific
courses; and furnishes technical assistance in the develop-
ment and use of teaching materials and media, analysis and
improvement of teaching and the evaluation of student per-
formance. Three units include an audio-visual materials cen-
ter, testing and examination services, and an instructional
improvement section.
Other units emphasizing individualized instruction in-
clude the Reading and Writing Center, the O.I.R. Teaching
Center, Mathematics Laboratory and the Language Labora-
tory. Selected self-paced non-credit courses are available in

sion and registration of students, the maintenance of aca-
demic records, the scheduling of courses, and the issuance
of transcripts of student records.
THE COUNSELOR TO FOREIGN AGRICULTURE STU-
DENTS. Foreign students in Agriculture are requested to
contact the Office of International Programs in McCarty
Hall. This office aids foreign students to integrate their
American education more completely with actual conditions
in their homelands and also gives information to all students
interested in foreign agricultural problems and careers in the
tropics.

ious academic colleges and schools observe a similar sched-
ule with variations.


THE FLORIDA STATE MUSEUM
The Florida State Museum was created by an act of the
Legislature in 1917 as a department of the University of Flor-
ida. Through its affiliation with the University it carries the
dual responsibility as the State Museum of Florida and the
University Museum.
The Museum operates as a center of research in the natu-
ral sciences and anthropology. Its functions as an educa-
tional arm of the University are carried forward through in-
terpretive displays and scientific and popular publications.
Under the administrative control of the Director are the
three departments of the Museum: Natural Sciences is con.
cerned with the study and expansion of the research collec-
tions as well as research in a variety of areas in functional
and evolutionary biology, sociobiology and ecology; Social
Sciences is concerned with the study of human variation and
cultures, both historic and prehistoric; Interpretation is con-
cerned with the interpretation of knowledge through
museum education and exhibit techniques. Members of the
scientific and educational staff of the Museum hold dual ap-
pointments in appropriate teaching departments. Through
these appointments they participate in both the under-
graduate and graduate teaching programs and supervision of
graduate students.
Scientific reports are published in the Bulletin of the Flor-
ida State Museum, Biological Sciences, the Ripley P. Bullen
Monographs in Anthropology and History, and in the Con-
tributions of the Florida State Museum, Anthropology and
History.
The research collections are under the care of curators
who encourage the scientific study of the Museum's hold-
ings. Materials are constantly being added to the collections
both through gifts from friends and as the result of research
activities of the Museum staff. The archaeological and
ethnological collections are noteworthy. There are extensive
study collections of birds, mammals, mollusks, reptiles, am-
phibians, fish, invertebrate and vertebrate fossils, as well as
archives of animal sounds associated with the bioacoustics
laboratory.
The Allyn Museum of Entomology, Sarasota, Florida, is
part of the Department of Natural Sciences, Florida State
Museum. The combined Sarasota and Gainesville holdings
in Lepidoptera rank the Allyn Museum of Entomology as the


largest in the western hemisphere and the premier Lepidop-
tera research center in the world. The Allyn Museum of En-
tomology publishes the Bulletin of the Allyn Museum of En-
tomology and sponsors the Karl Jordan Medal. The Allyn
Collection serves as a major source for taxonomic and
biogeographic research by a number of Florida State
Museum and Department of Zoology faculty and students,
as well as a great many visiting entomologists from around
the world.
Opportunities are provided for students, staff, and visiting
scientists to use the collections. Research and fieldwork are
presently sponsored in the anthropological, paleontological
and zoological fields. Students interested in these specialties
should make application to the appropriate teaching depart-
ment.
Graduate assistantships are available in the Museum in
areas of specialization emphasized in its research programs.
Facilities are available for graduate students.
The Museum is located at the corner of Museum Road and
Newell Drive in a modern facility completed in 1970. The
public halls are open from nine until five each weekday, in-
cluding Saturday, and from one to five on Sundays, and
holidays (closed Christmas Day). There is no admission
charge. The Museum is frequently used by University and
public school classes. Classes for children and special public
programs are also offered for members of .the University
community and the general public.


GENERAL STATE AND
UNIVERSITY AGENCIES
THE FLORIDA COOPERATIVE EXTENSION SERVICE.
The transfer and application of knowledge through non-
resident educational programs is the primary purpose of the
Florida Cooperative Extension Service, a component of the
Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. The educational
programs are tailored to fit the needs of many audiences in
areas of agricultural production including energy manage-
ment, marketing and utilization; home economics; com-
munity resource development; natural resource manage-
ment, 4-H youth development, and marine sciences. Au-
diences include adults and youth, rural and urban citizens,
minorities and people from all economic levels. The Cooper-
ative Extension Service is administered by the University of
Florida under a memorandum of understanding with USDA.
There is also a cooperative program funded through federal
grants with Florida A&M University. The basic legislative au-
thority makes provision for cooperation with local govern-
ment. In Florida, county programs are carried out jointly be-
tween the University and respective county governments in
the 67 counties. The Extension Service along with Resident
Instruction and Research in IFAS form a functional model
typifying the tripartite organizational structure envisioned in
the Morrill Act for the Land Grant College system.
The OFFICE OF UNIVERSITY RELATIONS is responsible
for the development of public relations, including visitor re-
ception, cooperating with all campus agencies and organiza-
tions in the planning and implementation of their public re-
lations activities and serving as the University representative
with civic organizations which work with the University and
are not professionally related to a particular school or col-
lege. University Relations coordinates with all campus agen-
cies dealing with off-campus publics in a continuing effort
to develop two-way communications with the public and to
encourage public support and understanding of the Univer-
sity, its programs and higher education.
The DIVISION OF INFORMATION AND PUBLICATIONS
SERVICES serves University central administration and Uni-
versity educational and general academic units, depart-
ments, service offices and other campus-related organiza-
tions by distributing information through mass media out-
lets, and providing communication services for the campus
community. It interprets the University's programs, policies
and objectives through newspapers and magazines, radio
and television broadcasts, motion pictures, publications,
photographs, audio-visual presentations, special displays

and exhibits, and community relations projects. The Division
produces the University Digest printed in the Independent
Alligator, and has complete video tape production facilities
used to develop television programming for both com-
mercial and public broadcasting stations. It assists other
units by coordinating copy content, design and preliminary
production for booklets, folders, brochures, and other
printed material, and assists in preparing bid specifications
for printing.
The OFFICE OF DEVELOPMENT AND ALUMNI AFFAIRS is
the campus headquarters for the University of Florida Na-
tional Alumni Association, Inc. and the University of Florida
Foundation, Inc.
The University of Florida National Alumni Association,
Inc. brings together the organized efforts of alumni and the
promotion of the interests and needs of the University and
strives to encourage continuous participation by alumni in
the life of the University.
The University of Florida Foundation exists to encourage
support from the private sector to the University for both
operating and capital purposes. It is a private corporation or-
ganized to hold funds for the benefit of the University, to in-
vest them and to insure the maximum value of the
University's private support.
THE UNIVERSITY GALLERY is an integral part of the Fine
Arts college. The Gallery is located on the campus facing
Southwest 13th Street (or U.S. 441). An atrium and a contem-
porary sculptural fountain are two pleasing features of the
Gallery's distinctive architecture style. The Gallery, with 3000
square feet of display space, is completely modern, air-con-
ditioned and maintains a varied exhibition schedule of the
visual arts during the year. The content of exhibitions dis-
played in the University Gallery range from the creations by
traditional masters through to the latest and most ex-
perimental works by the modern avant garde. The minor arts
of yesterday and today along with the creations of oriental
and primitive cultures form topics for exhibitions scheduled.
Besides its regularly scheduled exhibitions, which show for
approximately four to six weeks, the Gallery originates sever-
al unique exhibitions from its own and other museums' col-
lections each year. The Gallery's hours are from 9 A.M. to 5
P.M. daily except Sunday when they are 1 P.M. to 5 P.M. The
Gallery is closed on Saturdays and holidays.
ART DEPARTMENT GALLERY, the teaching gallery, is lo-
cated adjacent to the Department's office area on the third
floor of the Classroom Building in the Artchitecture and Fine
Arts complex. As a direct and physical adjunct to the Art
Department's teaching program this Gallery displays smaller
traveling exhibitions of merit as well as one man shows by
the faculty artists and student exhibitions. The Gallery is
open Monday through Friday from 8 A.M. to noon and from
1 P.M. to 5 P.M. It is closed Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.
THE CENTER FOR LATIN AMERICAN AND TROPICAL
ARTS is an interdisciplinary Center that provides coordi-
nation, direction, and focus to strengthen existing programs
related to the Fine Arts within the College of Fine Arts. The
Center's faculty is bound together by a desire to relate their
research and teaching activities to the broader concepts con-
cerned with the fine arts of various world cultures. The Cen-
ter broadens and strengthens existing interdepartmental re-
lations and provides additional stimuli and mechanisms for
translating results of research into more viable forms that re-
late directly to societal needs: It also establishes more effec-
tive lines for the training of able students at the under-
graduate, graduate, and adult education levels in various
aspects of the fine arts.
THE UNIVERSITY BROADCAST FACILITY is operated by
the College of journalism and Communications. It includes
WUFT, Channel 5, a public broadcasting television station
(PBS), WRUF-AM, the commercial radio station 850 KHz,
and WRUF-FM, a commercial FM station, stereo, 103.7 MHz.
Approximately 100 students are employed in these broad-
casting operations. Thus, in addition to the broad academic
background provided in the university's classrooms and lab-
oratories, these work opportunities provide a valuable expe-
rience in day-to-day operations typical of the industry. Stu-
dents perform such functions as director, cameraman, and


disc-jockey all under the guidance of professional broad-
casters. The college has earned a nationwide reputation for
the demonstrated effectiveness of this academic and work
experience training.
WUFT telecasts programs of PBS, the Public Broadcasting
Service, FPB, Florida Public Broadcasting Network, as well as
local studio and remote originations. As a unit of the Florida
Public Television Network, it both originates and receives
programs of particular interest to the people of Florida.
WRUF-AM serves the contemporary music audience,
while the WRUF-FM music ranges from show tunes to classi-
cal music, with a touch of progressive rock for the late night
listener. WRUF-AM is affiliated with the NBC network;
WRUF-FM is affiliated with CBS. Student communicators
produce and broadcast regular news programs over both sta-
tions under faculty supervision. Students produce a continu-
ing program of classical music that is broadcast on WRUF-
FM each evening.
The student's proximity to, and participation in, this di-
verse broadcast operation brings a greater understanding of
the opportunities and obligations that exist in the field of
broadcasting.
THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA PRESS
The Univerity of Florida is host to the state university
system's scholarly publishing facility, University Presses of
Florida. The goals of the systemwide publishing program im-
plemented by University Presses of Florida are expressed in
Board of Regents' policy:
". .. to publish books, monographs, journals, and other
types of scholarly or creative works. The Press shall give
special attention to works of distinguished scholarship in
academic areas of particular interest and usefulness to
the citizens of Florida. The Press shall publish original
works by state university faculty members, but it may
also publish meritorious works originating elsewhere and
may republish out-of-print works."
Each university's faculty publishing committee is inde-
pendently responsible for selecting works for publication
through the facilities of University Presses of Florida. At the
University of Florida, the University Press Board of Managers
oversees the locally determined publishing program.
The purpose of the University of Florida Press is to en-
courage, seek out, and publish original and scholarly man-
uscripts which will aid in developing the University s a rec-
ognized center of research and scholarship.
In addition to its broad range of state, regional, and Latin
American titles, the Press publishes books of general interest
and five separate series in Floridiana, gerontology, human-
ities, Latin America studies, and social sciences.
The Press Board of Managers, including the director and
fifteen faculty experts appointed by the President of the
University, determines policies of publication relating to the
acceptance or rejection of manuscripts and the issuance of
author contracts. Each year the board examines numerous
manuscripts submitted not only by the University faculty
but by authors from all over the United States, Europe, and
Latin America.
University Presses of Florida is a member of the Associa-
tion of American University Presses and of the Association of
American Publishers, Inc.
Students and members of the faculty and staff are cor-
dially invited to visit the Press offices at 15 N.W. 15th Street,
adjacent to the campus.


ORGANIZED RESEARCH
THE DIVISION OF SPONSORED RESEARCH was estab-
lished by an act of the legislature to support and to foster
sponsored research and training as a resource essential to ex-
cellence in education and to provide maximum service to
the State. The Division is a development arm of the Univer-
sity, coordinating its efforts closely with the Office of Aca-
demic Affairs. The Division of Sponsored Research is
directed by the Dean for Graduate Studies and Research.
All proposals for sponsorship of research, grants-in-aid,





General

GENERAL INFORMATION


and training grants are approved by the director. Nego-
tiations on administrative matters with potential contracting
agencies or sponsors of research and training projects are
carried out by the Division.
The activities of the Division of Sponsored Research are
intended to stimulate growth and to assist in expanding a
balanced research and training program throughout the Uni-
versity. These activities are intimately related to the support
of the graduate and professional program. The services pro-
vided are designed to relieve the principal investigators in
many departments of detailed administrative and reporting
duties connected with some sponsored programs. The
duties and responsibilities of.the Division, of course, do not
supplant the prerogative of the principal investigator who
seeks sponsors for his own project nor upon the responsi-
bility of the investigator for the scientific integrity of the
project. In direct contacts between a principal investigator
and a potential sponsor, however, coordination with the
Division is necessary to insure uniformity in contract re-
quirements and to avoid duplication of negotiations with
the same sponsor.
The Division of Sponsored Research is administratively re-
sponsible to the Vice President for Academic Affairs. Policies
and procedures for the Division are developed by a board of
directors working with the director within the general
framework of the administrative policies and procedures of
the University.
THE AGRICULTURAL EXPERIMENT STATIONS, an organi-
zational division of the Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences, is responsible for the IFAS research mission of solv-
ing problems confronting a wide array of agricultural in-
dustries, urban agriculture (horticulture) and the manage-
ment of natural resources in the State. Research is adminis-
tered by the Dean for Research located on the University of
Florida campus. He works through 21 departments, 8 Agri-
cultural Research and Education Centers and 15 Agricultural
Research Centers.
Results of IFAS research are published in scientific jour-
nals, bulletins, monographs, circulars, mimeographed re-
ports and are available to Florida residents usually without
charge upon request to the Editorial Department of the Agri-
cultural Experiment Station at Gainesville. The Agricultural
Experiment Station cooperates closely with the Agricultural
Extension Service in providing research findings for prompt
dissemination.
IFAS research is conducted within 21 departments--Agri-
cultural Engin'eering, Agricultural and Extension Education,
Agronomy, Animal Science, Botany, Dairy Science, En-
tomology and Nematology, Food and Resource Economics,
Food Science and Human Nutrition, 4-H and other Youth
programs, School of Forest Resources and Conservation,
Fruit Crops, Home Economics, Microbiology and Cell Sci-
ence, Ornamental Horticulture, Plant Pathology, Poultry Sci-
ence, Soil Science, Statistics, Vegetable Crops and Veterinary
Science (College of Veterinary Medicine). In addition to the
above the Main Station has six units vital to its research pro-
grams, namely: Editorial, Library, Business Service and Cen-
ters for Rural Development and Environmental Programs.
In order to best serve the varied needs of Florida's diver-
sified agriculture, Agricultural Research and Education Cen-
ters are located at numerous locations having different
climatic conditions, soil types and crops. Intensive research
is conducted in all fields of agriculture such as citrus, vegeta-
ble, field crops, livestock, pastures and many others.
The Agricultural Research Centers and their locations are
as follows: Monticello, Brooksville, Ft. Pierce, Immokalee,
Dover, Ft. Lauderdale, Hastings, Ona, Apopka, Marianna,
Live Oak, Leesburg, Lakeland, Jay and Ocala.
The Agricultural Research and Education Centers and their
locations are as follows: Homestead, Belle Glade, Branden-
ton, Lake Alfred, Quincy, Sanford and Tallahassee (Florida A
and M University). A Research and Education Center is also
located at Welaka, Florida and is concerned largely with bio-
logical research programs and youth programs.
The Florida Agricultural Experiment Station is cooperating
with the Brooksville Beef Cattle Research Station,
Brooksville, a USDA field laboratory, in its beef cattle and


pasture production and management programs, and with
the National Weather Service, Ruskin, in the Federal Frost
Warning Service for fruit and vegetable producers and
shippers, as well as cooperating with numerous Florida agri-
cultural agencies and organizations.
THE FLORIDA ENGINEERING AND INDUSTRIAL EXPERI-
MENT STATION (EIES) developed from early research ac-
tivities of the engineering faculty and was officially estab-
lished in 1941 by the Legislature as an integral part of the
College of Engineering. Its mandate is "to organize and pro-
mote the prosecution of research projects of engineering
and related sciences, with special reference to such of these
problems as are important to the industries of Florida."
The College and the Station form a close interlocking rela-
tionship with the EIES serving as the research arm of the Col-
lege. In this capacity the EIES fulfills its function of conduct-
ing research on many of Florida's most significant problems
ranging from energy to water resources, environmental is-
sues to health-related activities. Of course many of these
problems transcend the State and are also of national con-
cern. The Station has developed a national and international
reputation in many areas and the faculty are at the forefront
of their fields. This has a major positive impact on the Col-
lege since it makes good teaching possible, exposes students
to many important engineering problems normally not en-
countered in a college program, and helps the faculty better
instill students with the qualifications necessary for the suc-
cessful practice of their profession. Moreover, both under-
graduate and graduate students frequently find em-
ployment on research projects.
The Station receives a small but important portion of its
operating funds from the State; this funding base results in a
near 10 for 1 return from contracts and grants with govern-
ment agencies, foundations and industrial organizations.
The Station has excellent facilities and faculty in many di-
verse fields; a few such examples are; solar energy,
bioengineering, energy conservation and conversion,
ceramics, new materials development, photovoltaics, robot-
ics, soil mechanics, transportation research, coastal and
oceanographic engineering, microelectronics, air and water
pollution control, nuclear pumped lasers, systems analysis,
fluid dynamics and hydrology, technology for enhanced oil
recovery, lightning research.
THE FLORIDA ARCHITECTURE & BUILDING RESEARCH
CENTER is a unit of the College of Architecture established
to foster and encourage research related to the disciplines
represented in the college. These include architecture, build-
ing construction, landscape architecture, interior design, and
urban and regional planning. The Bureau also provides as-
sistance to faculty and graduate students in establishing co-
operative efforts with other units of the University.
THE BUREAU OF ECONOMIC AND BUSINESS RESEARCH
is the research arm of the College of Business Adminis-
tration. Through its four programs-forecasting, population,
survey, and publications-the Bureau generates and dis-
seminates demographic, economic and business informa-
tion about Florida. Major sources of this information are the
annual Florida Statistical Abstract and the biennial Older
People in Florida published by the Bureau. Reports of Bu-
reau resea rarch are published in the monthly Economic
Leaflets and Florida Economic Indicators, both free to Flor-
ida residents, and Florida Building Permits; in the quarterly
Business and Economic Dimensions, Population Studies,
and The Florida Outlook; in the annual Florida Estimates of
Population for state, counties and municipalities; and spe-
cial reports. The Bureau makes it possible for teaching pro-
fessors to engage in organized research and provides re-
search training for undergraduate and graduate students.
THE PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION CLEARING SERVICE is a
research, publication, and service adjunct of the Depart-
ment of Political Science in the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences. It carries on a continuous program of research on
public administration and public policy in Florida; it pub-
lishes research and surveys of governmental and adminis-
trative problems in both scientific and popular monograph
form. In addition, the Public Administration Clearing Service
coordinates the programs of instruction and public service
training in cooperation with other units of the University.

INSTITUTE OF FOOD AND
AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES
THE INSTITUTE OF FOOD AND AGRICULTURAL SCI-
ENCES is the University of Florida's statewide agricultural re-
search and educational organization. IFAS programs extend
into every county, and reach people in virtually every com-
munity in Florida.
The primary mission of IFAS is to help Florida realize its
maximum potential for agricultural development, and to
contribute to the solution of many social, economic, envi-
ronmental and cultural problems of concern to the people
of the state. This vital developmental mission is carried out
through the three functions of resident instruction, research,
and extension. These are carefully interrelated to provide a
highly coordinated effort for the benefit of Florida its
citizens and its industry. This effort is guided by the Vice
President for Agricultural Affairs.
The offices of the Vice President, as well as the Deans for
Resident Instruction, Research and Extension are located
near the center of campus in McCarty Hall. Administrative
offices of the School of Forest Resources and Conservation
are located in Newins-Ziegler Hall.
The resident instruction programs conducted through the
College of Agriculture and the School of Forest Resources
and Conservation, are concerned with educating young men
and women for the nation's growing and increasingly com-
plex agricultural industry. The curricula for the different
fields of study are structured to provide the business, tech-
nological and science education necessary for graduates to
meet the ever changing needs of a diverse and highly spe-
cialized agriculture, as well as related business and industry.
All academic departments offer an undergraduate program
leading to a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture. The School
of Forest Resources and Conservation offers an under-
graduate program which leads to the Bachelor of Science in
Forest Resources and Conservation. Graduate programs at
the masters level are offered by all academic units. The Doc-
tor of Philosophy degree is offered in 13 specialities.
The mission of the IFAS research programs is one of devel-
opment, as well as improving existing technology to enable
Florida's agricultural industry to become more efficient, par-
ticularly in reducing dependence on consumption of fossil
fuels; to improve consumer health and nutrition and to im-
prove the social and economic well-being of producers and
consumers of agricultural commodities and resources.
Through the network of 23 research and education centers,
located in various areas of the state, applied as well as basic
research efforts develop new and improved technology to
meet the agricultural needs of Florida.
The Florida Cooperative Extension Service is administered
by IFAS in cooperation with the several Boards of County
Commissioners in the state and the U.S. Department of Agri-
culture. Extension offices in all 67 counties are responsible
for the transfer and application of knowledge through non-

resident educational programs. These programs are tailored
to fit the needs of the many audiences in agricultural pro-
duction, marketing and utilization; home economics; com-
munity resource development, and marine sciences. Au-
diences include adults and youth, rural and urban citizens,
minorities and people from all economics levels.
In 1972, the Center for Community and Rural Develop-
ment was established to provide statewide coordination of
research and education programs in community develop-
ment for rural and non-rural metropolitan areas. This center
is concerned with improving the economic conditions in
these areas so that people have better employment op-
portunities. Through support of undergraduate and gradu-
ate education the Center is assisting in the training of young
people to provide leadership in planning and developing lo-
cal programs. Courses of study in the economics of environ-
mental quality, natural resource planning and development,
rural income and employment, and regional economic plan-
ning help them make definite contributions toward improv-
ing the economic and social conditions of non-urban areas.
The Center for Environmental Programs and Natural Re-
sources was created in October, 1973, to provide statewide
coordination for the IFAS research and education programs
concerned with solving some of the serious environmental
and natural resources problems related to agriculture
throughout Florida. The Center is involved in developing
ways to protect managed agriculture ecosystems from envi-
ronmental damage, integrating environmental practices into
agricultural production technology and protecting and
enhancing the quality of all of Florida's environment.
The creation of an Office of International Programs in
1966, formalized the international commitment of IFAS. The
Office of International Programs is responsible for adminis-
tration, coordination and development of all activities which
build or strengthen the international dimension of IFAS. This
includes participation in the determination of contract and
grant policy, development of outside funding sources for in-
ternational research and training projects, and assistance in
the initiation of new education programs. Integration of in-
ternational programs into each department is a specific ob-
jective. This provides a unique opportunity for focusing
maximum resources available on the project. Both faculty in
the state and those overseas benefit by the interchange of
ideas. Education and research is handled under the same of-
fice by the Center for Tropical Agriculture established in
1965.


THE J. HILLIS MILLER HEALTH
CENTER
The J. Hillis Miller Health Center at the University of Flor-
ida in Gainesville serves the entire state through four major
dimensions of activity: the provision of modern health care


for both people and animals, the education of future health
professionals, research to expand knowledge of disease and
to improve treatment, and a wide variety of outreach health
care projects.
The 24-year old complex includes the Colleges of Den-
tistry, Health Related Professions, Medicine, Nursing, Phar-
macy and the new College of Veterinary Medicine.
The Shands Teaching Hospital, recently granted official
status as a private non-profit corporation, continues to serve
as a major referral center for modern patient care and
clinical training of students in the health professions.
The north expansion of the Health Center's building pro-
gram, the Communicore Building, became operational in
1974 and houses teaching laboratories, animal quarters, fec-
ture halls, a library and a learning resources center. New fa-
cilities for the College of Dentistry became operational in
1975. As part of the Health Center complex, new facilities for
the College of Veterinary Medicine were phased into opera-
tion in late 1977 and early 1978. The facilities include the
Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital and Clinics where the
state's practicing veterinarians may refer animal patients
with rare or complicated diseases.
A Veterans Administration Medical Center across from the
Health Center is engaged in programs of patient care, teach-
ing and research which are affiliated with the programs in
the Health Center's colleges.
The Jacksonville Health Education Programs, Inc. which
offers educational opportunity in clinical fields to students
of the Health Center's colleges is an official division of the
University of Florida.
The academic programs of the Health Center prepare stu-
dents to understand that tomorrow's health care must focus
on the community in order to achieve the comprehensive
health care of man. The programs help them to understand
that health care involves the health team: the physician; the
nurse; the dentist; the pharmacist; persons in health related
professions; the community; the researcher; the educator;
the counselor; that by training together, and later by work-
ing together, these men and women contribute more effec-
tively to a person's well being.
The health-oriented professions exchange information
within the Health Center, and draw upon the other re-
sources of the University to further man's understanding of
health and illness.
Since the opening of its first units the Colleges of Medi-
cine and Nursing in 1956, the Health Center has become
a leading center for health care, education and research in
the Southeast.
Located on the southern edge of the University of Florida
campus, the Health Center was named for Dr. J. Hillis Miller,
late president of the University whose vision and determina-
tion helped formulate the early planning of the health com-
plex as an integral part of the University.





General

ADMISSIONS


ADMISSIONS


APPLICATION FOR ADMISSIONS
Application for admission to any undergraduate College,
School or Division of the University must be made to the
Admissions Section of the Office of the Registrar on the
forms prescribed and by the dates indicated below. It is
quite proper to correspond with Deans, Directors or Depart-.
ment Chairmen, but such contact with University officers
does not in any way eliminate the necessity for filing a
formal application in the Office of the Registrar by the dates
specified.
How to Apply: An applicant should address a request to
the Admissions Section, Office of the Registrar, University of
Florida asking for application forms. Forms and directions for
completion of applications vary with the level of entry at the
University and the applicant should indicate that forms are
being requested for admission as a Freshman, Under-
graduate Transfer, Postbaccalaureate, Graduate, Dental,
Law, Medical, Veterinary Medicine, or Special student, as the
case might be.


GENERAL STATEMENT
The University encourages applications from qualified ap-
plicants of both sexes from all cultural, racial, religious, and
ethnic groups. The University does not discriminate on the
basis of handicap in admission or access-to its programs and
activities. Both the Educational Testing Service (SAT) and
The American College Testing Program (ACT) have
brochures describing special testing arrangements for handi-
capped applicants and there are alternate admissions pro-
cedures for handicapped applicants who are unable to take
the required tests.
A brief summary of the general requirements for admis-
sion or readmission to any college or division of the Univer-
sity is given below:
1. A satisfactory academic record. Each applicant must
furnish a complete chronological record of educational in-
stitutions previously attended. Official transcripts must be
submitted in accordance with instructions which accom-
pany the application form.
2. Satisfactory scores on achievement tests or aptitude
tests as noted in the application instructions.
3. A satisfactory conduct record.
NOTE: Board of Regents regulations provide that
furnishing false or fraudulent statements or information in
connection with an application for admission or residence
affidavit may result in disciplinary action, denial of admis-
sion, and invalidation of credits or degrees earned.
The specific requirements for readmission (at the same or
a different level) of a student previously enrolled at the Uni-
versity of Florida are given in the STUDENT REGULATIONS
section of this catalog. Consult the index for page number.
The specific requirements for admission to the University
of Florida for the first time as a Freshman, Undergraduate
Transfer, Postbaccalaureate, Graduate, Dental, Law, Medi-
cal, Veterinary Medicine, or Special student may be found in
the appropriate sections which follow. It should be under-
stood, however, that minimum requirements are given and
that admission to the University is a selective process. The
satisfaction of minimum requirements does not auto-
matically guarantee admission. Under Board of Regents pol-
icy up to ten per cent of the students admitted during the
academic year at any level may be admitted as exceptions to
the. minimum requirements. The University Admissions
Committee is the agency at the University of Florida that is
responsible for the admission of undergraduate students un-
der this exception policy. For additional information regard-
ing this policy, contact the Minority and Disadvantaged Ad-
missions Officer, Office of the Registrar.
The admission requirements have been arrived at after a
very careful study of the experiences of thousands of stu-
dents over a long period of years. In every case minimum re-


quirements have evolved from studies of student per-
formance at the University of Florida. These studies have
had as a primary objective the identification of factors that
would indicate a reasonable chance for successful comple-
tion of University of Florida work.
The University Admissions Committee is responsible, for
administering all admissions to the University and Its various
components including applicants approved as exceptions to

TRAVELING SCHOLAR PROGRAM
The Traveling Scholar Program affords graduate students
at State University System institutions an opportunity to take
course work or conduct research activities at any of the other
institutions in the System. Course work taken under the aus-
pices of the Traveling Scholar Program at another university
in the System will apply for graduate credit at the student's
home institution. The deans of the graduate schools of the
State universities are the coordinators of the Program. For
details regarding the Traveling Scholar Program and aPp-
proval to participate in it, a student must apply to the ilian
of the graduate school on his home campus.


UNDERGRADUATE
INTERINSTITUTIONAL
REGISTRATION PROGRAM
The Undergraduate Interinstitutional Registration Pro-
gram enables students at State University System institutions
to take advantage of special resources and programs avail-
able on another campus in the System but not available at
their home institution, e.g., special course offerings, research





General

ADMISSIONS


opportunities, unique laboratories, overseas study programs,
and library collections. Course work taken under the Under-
graduate Interinstitutional Registration Program will be ac-
cepted for credit at the student's home institution. A student
must be recommended to participate in the Program by his
own academic dean, who will initiate a visiting arrangement
with the appropriate dean at the host institution.


PERSONAL HEALTH
HISTORY REQUIREMENT
A personal health history completed by you and reported
on forms supplied by the University Physician are required
prior to initial enrollment at the University of Florida. If your
application for admission is approved, the health history
form will be forwarded to you for you to complete and re-
turn to the University Physician. Your form should be re-
ceived by the University Physician at least two weeks prior to
your planned date of entrance.


ADMISSION AS A FRESHMAN
(APPLICANTS WHO HAVE NEVER ATTENDED COLLEGE)
When to Apply: No application will be considered for the
Freshman Class more than one year in advance of the term
for which entrance is sought. The best time to apply is the
early part of the Senior year in Secondary School. Priority in
admission to the Fall class will be given to qualified appli-
cants whose applications are received in the Admissions Of-
fice prior to March 1st. Applications for the Fall class re-
ceived after March 1st will be considered on a "space avail-
able" basis only. The deadlines for receipt of applications for
other terms are listed in the University Calendar.
Admission of students is on a selective basis. The avail-
ability of community junior colleges and other state univer-
sities in Florida has caused the Board of Regents to assign to
the University of Florida a role in the total state system of
higher education which demands that the entering
Freshman Class be limited in number..Such limitation does
not prevent students from subsequently applying for admis-
sion to upper division and professional schools of the Uni-
versity since they may attend junior colleges or other univer-
sities and if qualified, then transfer to the University's upper
division colleges in accordance with rules printed elsewhere
in this Catalog.
The requirements for admission set forth below are desig-
nated to give priority to those applicants whose potential on
the basis of their record indicates the greatest likelihood of
success and the obtaining of maximum benefits from the
Lower Division program at the University of Florida.
A. Requirements for admission Florida students
For consideration a student must meet the following mini-
mums:
1. Graduation from an accredited secondary school.
2. Twelve academic units in college preparatory courses
such as English, Foreign Languages, Mathematics (begin-
ning with Algebra), Natural Sciences, and Social Sciences.
3. An overall "C" average in academic courses.
4. A total score of at least 800 on the Scholastic Aptitude
Test (SAT) or a composite score of 17 or above on the
American College Testing Program (ACT).
5. A record of good conduct. Major or continuing dif-
ficulty with school or other authorities may make an appli-
cant ineligible regardless of academic qualifications.
Any Florida student who meets the above minimum ad-
mission requirements and is interested in attending the Uni-
versity of Florida is urged to submit an application. The Uni-
versity will do everything possible to accept all qualified ap-
plicants who apply before the application deadline date. If
the number of qualified applicants exceeds the number that
the University is permitted to enroll, admission will be on a
selective basis. An applicant's total high school record in-


cluding grades, test scores, educational objective and pat-
tern of courses completed, rank in class, school recommen-
dation and personal record will be considered in the selec-
tion process.
Composite pictures of recent Freshman classes at the Uni-
versity of Florida indicate that approximately 70 percent rank
in the top 20 percent of all high school Seniors on the basis
of their admissions test scores. Approximately 50 percent of
each entering class has earned a "B" or better average in
high school academic subjects. While there is no minimum
grade average or test score which in itself assures a student
of admission or success in college, prospective Freshmen are
urged to discuss the meaning and implication of these data
with their school counselors before deciding whether to ap-
ply for admission to the University of Florida.

B. Requirements for admission Non-Florida Students.
Because of a limited entering Freshman class each Fall,
only a small number of highly qualified students from states
other than Florida may be admitted. The minimum require-
ments for consideration are essentially the same as for Flor-
ida students except that priority in consideration for admis-
sion will be given to those applicants who present scores of
at least 500 on each section of the Scholastic Aptitude Test of
the College Entrance Examination Board and an academic
average of "B" or better.

OPPORTUNITIES FOR ACCELERATING COLLEGE
GRADUATION
Early Admission
Applications for Early Admission (i.e. admission following
completion of the Junior year in high school) from superior
students are encouraged and will be considered on an indi-
vidual basis by the University's Admissions Committee. Ap-
plications should be submitted in accordance with dead-
lines published in the University Catalog.
In addition to the application, the following items are
needed for processing Early Admission applicants.
1. A written statement by the student setting forth reasons
for requesting early admission.
2. An official transcript of the applicant's secondary school
record covering the 9th, 10th and 11th years. Generally, an
overall academic average of B+ is expected.
3. Results of either the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or
the American College Testing Program (ACT). Generally, a
score of approxirimately 600 on each section of the SAT or
a.composite score of 28 on the ACT is expected.
4. A letter of recommendation from the student's high
school principal or guidance counselor. The letter should
give specific reasons as to why the applicant would profit
more from Early Admission than by completion of the Sen-
ior year in high school.
An applicant for Early Admission may be required to come
to the campus for interviews by members of the Admissions
Committee before a decision is made on the application.
The Admissions Office will advise the applicant if interviews
will be required after all of the above items have been re-
ceived and evaluated. IMPORTANT: Please note that an ap-
plicant should NOT report for interviews until advised by
the Admissions Office.
The University of Florida provides numerous op-
portunities other than Early Admission by which a student
may accelerate graduation. For additional information,
please refer to the section of this. catalog entitled Time
Shortened Degree Opportunities.
Candidates' Reply Date. Applicants accepted for admis-
sion to the Fall Freshman class must indicate their en-
rollment plans within 30 days after acceptance.







ADMISSIONS


Advance Housing Payment Entering freshmen are re-
quired to make a housing deposit within 30 days after accep-
tance if they desire to live in University housing. The hous-
ing deposit, less a $10.00 service charge, is refundable until
May 1st for applicants accepted for admission to the Fall
Freshman Class.
Admission with Advanced Standing. The University of
Florida is a participant in the Advanced Placement Program
and in the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) of the
College Entrance Examination Board. Under the Advanced
Placement Program a student entering the University offers
a nationally graded examination as evidence of completion
of a college level course taken in high school. Depending on
the results of the examination, the student may receive Uni-
versity credit for courses covering similar material or exemp-
tion from such courses without credit. Under the College
Level Examination Program, the University grants credits for
satisfactory scores in each of the five areas of the CLEP Gen-
eral Examinations. For further information, please refer to
the section of the Catalog entitled Time Shortened Degree
Opportunities.
Early Decision for Superior Students. Students with supe-
rior secondary school records (academic average at least 3.5)
and Junior year high school SAT test scores (approximately
600 each on the verbal and mathematics sections) may apply
for early decision. The student must certify that this is his
only application and this statement must be supported by
the signatures of his parents and appropriate school official.
The completed application must be received by November
1, and, if admitted, the student must make his commitment
to attend the University of Florida, accompanied by his
housing payment, by December 1.


ADMISSION AS A TRANSFER
STUDENT TO UNDERGRADUATE
SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES
(APPLICANTS WHO HAVE ATTENDED ANY COLLEGE OR
UNIVERSITY, REGARDLESS OF THE AMOUNT OF TIME
SPENT IN ATTENDANCE OR CREDIT EARNED, ARE CON-
SIDERED AS TRANSFER STUDENTS.)
When to Apply: Applications may be submitted not more
than one year in advance and applicants are strongly urged
to apply at least six months prior to the date they plan to
enter. Applicants should refer to the DEADLINES FOR AP-
PLYING section of the University Calendar published in this
catalog as well as consult the portion of this catalog per-
taining to the individual college to which they intend to ap-
ply for specific information regarding application deadlines.
(NOTE: In a number of undergraduate programs, the se-
quence of professional courses begins ONLY in the Fall Term
of the Junior year.) An applicant who waits until the last pos-
sible date to file an application may find that it is impossible
to furnish the necessary supporting records in time to permit
a decision for the term that admission is desired.
In this section are listed the general requirements for ad-
mission of undergraduate transfer students. It should be ob-
served however, that ADMISSION TO THE UNIVERSITY IS A
SELECTIVE PROCESS AND SATISFYING THESE GENERAL RE-
QUIREMENTS DOES NOT GUARANTEE ACCEPTANCE. At-
tention is also directed to the fact that Upper Division col-
leges of the University have established enrollment quotas
because of limitations of space and facilities. Transfer appli-
cants who meet the minimum admission requirements will
be referred to the selection committee of the appropriate
college for consideration of their enrollment within the
college's established quotas.
A transfer applicant should refer to the General Informa-
tion and Colleges sections of this catalog for an explanation
of the academic organization of the University.
If an applicant is accepted for admission, courses which
reasonably parallel the curriculum of the University of Flor-
ida that were completed with grades of "D" or higher at oth-
er accredited institutions are acceptable for transfer credit. It
is the prerogative of the college (within the University) that


administers the work for the degree being sought to de-
termine hav transfer credit may be used in satisfying that
degree's specific course requirements. Not more than 64
semester hours (or 96 quarter hours) of credit transferred
from or through a junior college may be applied toward the
total credit hours requirement for a University of Florida de-
gree. Courses completed at a junior college in excess of a to-
tal of 64 semester hours may serve to meet specific course re-
quirements for a University of Florida degree but the credit
hours represented by those courses will not reduce the
number of credit hours to be completed at the University.
That is, once a student has accumulated 64 semester hours
(96 quarter hours) no work at a community college may be
used in meeting University of Florida degree requirements.
A. FLORIDA PUBLIC JUNIOR COLLEGE GRADUATES
This section applies ONLY to students seeking to transfer
directly from a Florida public junior college with the As-
sociate in Arts degree in a university parallel program. All
other junior college applicants and undergraduate transfer
applicants from four-year or upper division colleges and
universities should consult Section B which follows.
The University of Florida subscribes to the Articulation
Agreement between the State Universities and Public Junior
Colleges of Florida. Under this agreement, any graduate of a
State approved Florida public junior college is eligible for
admission to the University if the student has completed the
university parallel program and received the Associate in
Arts degree, provided the degree has been awarded on the
basis of the following:
1. At least 60 semester hours (90 quarter hours) of aca-
demic work exclusive of occupational courses;
2. An approved general education program at least 36
semester hours (54 quarter hours);
3. A grade point average of at least 2.0 on a 4.0 system on
all college level academic courses attempted.
By law, all applicants seeking admission to a program in
teacher education must submit scores on the Scholastic Ap-
titude Test (SAT) or the American College Test (ACT). These
scores should be forwarded to the Admissions Office as
soon as possible after an application for admission has been
submitted. Some colleges with enrollment quotas may re-
quire applicants to submit test scores as a part of their selec-
tion process. When test scores are required by an Upper
Division college, the applicant will be advised directly by
that college.
Within space and fiscal limitations, applicants who have
satisfied the above minimum requirements will be con-
sidered for admission at the Junior level to an Upper
Division college. Such students may be required to take ad-
ditional preprofessional courses not completed at the junior
college. However, such courses will not reduce the number
of credits required in the Upper Division for a degree.
B. TRANSFER APPLICANTS OTHER THAN GRADUATES
FROM A FLORIDA PUBLIC JUNIOR COLLEGE
This section applies to students seeking to transfer from a
Florida public junior college without an Associate in Arts de-
gree in a university parallel program and to all under-
graduate transfer applicants from other colleges or univer-
sities.
1. Requirements for admission to the Lower Division
1. Eligible for admission as a beginning Freshman: An ap-
plicant must have been eligible for admission to the Uni-
versity of Florida as a beginning Freshman in order to be
considered for admission to the Lower Division as a
transfer student. (See section, ADMISSION AS A
FRESHMAN.)
2. Good standing: An applicant must be in good standing
and eligible to return to any institution previously at-
tended. A student who for any reason will not be allowed
to return to an institution previously attended cannot be
considered for admission to the University of Florida.
3. Satisfactory record: An applicant must have an average
of "C" or higher (as computed by the University of Flor-
ida) on all work attempted at each institution previously

plete official transcripts of all the applicant's under-
graduate work are in the possession of the Admissions Of-
fice. An official transcript must be furnished from each in-
stitution attended regardless of length of attendance or
credit earned. Official supplementary transcripts are re-
quired, as soon as they are available, for any work com-
pleted after making application. Since an average of "C"
or higher is required for graduation from the University of
Florida, one who has failed to maintain this average at an-
other institution is not eligible for admission. Regardless
of the average earned, courses completed at Other institu-
tions must reasonably parallel the curriculum at the Uni-
versity of Florida.
4. Satisfactory test scores: An applicant who will present
less than 60 semester hours (or 90 quarter hours) of accep-
table college courses (including not more than 4 semester
hours in Military Science and/or basic required Physical
Education) as credit for advanced standing must present
satisfactory scores on an acceptable general ability test.
Any of the following tests may satisfy this requirement. If
taken prior to first enrollment in college: the Florida
Twelfth Grade Placement Test, the Scholastic Aptitude
Test (SAT) of the College Entrance Examination Board, or
the American College Testing Program (ACT). Otherwise,
the applicant should furnish scores on the School and Col-
lege Ability Test, College Level (SCAT). The minimum ac-
ceptable score on these tests will vary with the amount
and quality of academic study the applicant will have
completed prior to transfer.
5. Satisfactory conduct record: An applicant must present
a satisfactory conduct record. Regardless of other quali-
fications, an applicant who has experienced serious or
continuing difficulty with school or other authorities be-
cause of improper conduct may find his application disap-
proved.
II. Requirements for admission to an Upper Division
College.
With the exception of items 1 and 4, an applicant for ad-
mission to an Upper Division College must satisfy the re-
quirements listed above for admission to the Lower Division.
By law, all applicants seeking admission to a program in
teacher education must submit scores on the Scholastic Ap-
titude Test (SAT) or the American College Test (ACT). These
scores should be forwarded to the Admissions Office as
soon as possible after an application for admission has been
submitted..Some colleges with enrollment quotas may re-
quire applicants to submit test scores as a part of their selec-
tion process. When test scores are required by an Upper
Division college, the applicant will be advised directly by
that college. In addition, the following requirements must
also be satisfied.
1. Advanced Standing credit. An applicant must present a
minimum of 60 semester hours (or 90 quarter hours) of ac-
ceptable college courses, not more than four semester
hours of which are in Military Science and/or basic re-
quired Physical Education as credit for advanced standing.
2.- Specific course requirements. An applicant must pres-
ent the courses listed as required for admission by the Up-
per Division college of his choice, or acceptable sub-
stitutes, as part of the courses offered for advanced stand-
ing credit. (See appropriate college section of this catalog).
Upon recommendation by the Upper Division college, an
applicant lacking some of the specific course require-
ments may be permitted to enroll in that college and com-
plete them if he meets all other requirements for admis-
sion; however, such Lower Division courses will not re-
duce the number of credits required in the Upper Division
for a degree.

ADMISSION AS A

New Jersey, U.S.A., requesting a Bulletin of Information and
registration form. It is important to remember that final con-
sideration can not be granted a foreign student's application
for admission until his scores on this test are received.by: Ad-
mission Section, Office of The Registrar, University of Flor-
ida, Gainesville, Florida, U.S.A.
Undergraduate Record: Unqualified admission to the
Graduate School is dependent upon the presentation of a
baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or univer-
sity with an average of B for the Junior and Senior years. In
some units of the Graduate School and on the more ad-
vanced levels of graduate study, an undergraduate average
considerably above B may be required. In some units admis-
sion may be considered with an undergraduate average
slightly below B. College graduate admission selection com-
mittees take into account not only the general grade aver-
age, but the distribution of the course work and the quality
and extent of preparation for the graduate program which
the student proposes to undertake.
While the general admissions requirements described
above apply to both master's and doctoral candidates, it
should be noted that doctoral candidates must meet certain
additional requirements, which vary according to the pro-
grams established by the departments and colleges.
Furthermore, it is desirable for students planning to enter
certain colleges and departments to have a reading knowl-
edge of one foreign language.
Graduate Record Examination: A satisfactory average score
on the Graduate Record Examination is required for admis-
sion. Each applicant for admission must submit scores on the
aptitude test of the GRE, but either at the request of the de-
partment concerned or on his own volition, the applicant is
encouraged to submit in addition the score on one or more
advanced subject-matter tests of the GRE. The scores on all
tests taken will be weighed in regard to admission.
The GRE is given six times a year- in October, December,
January, February, April and June at a great many loca-
tions in the United States, including Gainesville, Florida. To
determine exact dates and the most convenient locations,
students should write to the Educational Testing Service,
Princeton, New Jersey. Applications are required several
weeks prior to the examination, and scores are received
about a month after the examination. Hence, it is necessary
to apply to take the GRE in early September for admission to
the University in January; in early January for admission in
May or June; and in early March for admission in August.
Other GRE examinations are given for which application
must be made in November, December or May, but the GRE
examinations indicated above are the ones best correlated
with the University's admission deadlines.
Graduate Study in Business Administration.-Students
applying for admission to the Graduate School for study in
the-College of Business Administration may substitute satis-
factory scores on the Graduate Management Admission Test
(GMAT) for the Graduate Record Examination. Students ap-
plying for admission to the Master of Business Adminis-
tration (MBA) program must submit satisfactory scores on
the GMAT. Applicants are requested to contact the Educa-
tional Testing Service, Princeton, New Jersey, for additional
information.

ADMISSION TO
THE COLLEGE OF DENTISTRY
When to Apply: The Application Request Card for the
American Association of Dental Schools Application Service
(AADSAS) may be obtained after May 15, from the Office of
Admissions, College of Dentistry. The request card should
be sent directly to the AADSAS, P. O. Box 1003, Iowa City,
Iowa 52240. Upon receiving the application materials from
the AADSAS, the completed forms and supporting docu-
ments must be returned directly the AADSAS no later than
October 15 of the year prior to anticipated enrollment in


dental school. Failure to meet this deadline will prevent the
Dental Admissions Committee from evaluating your record.
The data compiled by the AADSAS will be carefully eval-
uated by the Dental Admissions Committee and promising
applicants will be sent Formal Application forms which re-
quest additional information. The submission of a pre-
professional committee evaluation or letters of recommen-
dation from people in academics will not be necessary until
the Formal Application forms are filed. The Formal Applica-
tion forms and supporting materials should be submitted as
early as possible, but no later than November 15 of each ap-
plication year.
The College of Dentistry aspires to attract students of the
highest caliber into its various programs. High standards of
scholastic achievement, moral character, and motivation are
expected of the applicant. The student of dentistry must
possess a high basic aptitude supplemented by an academic
preparation of the highest order because of the vast area of
science which must be mastered by the dentist. The highly
personal relationship between patient and dentist places the
latter in a position of trust, which demands maturity, integ-
rity, intellectual honesty, and a sense of responsibility. A
broad representation of the ethnic mixture of the State is
sought in the student body through an active recruitment
program. The College strictly adheres to the principle of
ethnic, racial, religious and social equality among its student
body and faculty.
Generally, students applying for admission should plan to
complete the requirements for a bachelor's degree. How-
ever, qualified students may be accepted without fulfilling
the degree requirements, provided they show evidence of
sufficient preparation for the study of dentistry. Applicants
with an overall "B" average as a minimum will receive
strongest consideration for admission to the College of Den-
tistry.
Every applicant must take the Dental Admission Test,
preferably in the Spring preceding the submission of his In-
itial Application or, at the latest, the Fall testing period. The
test is given twice a year at many college and university'test-
ing centers. Following a review of all application materials
and Dental Admission Test scores by the Dental Admissions
Committee, interviews with members of this Committee will
be arranged for competitive applicants.
(See also more detailed description in the College of Den-
tistry bulletin.)

during the Summer or Fall of the year preceding his in-
tended date of entry.
Personal qualities of high order-character, responsibility
and maturity are the primary requirements for admission.
The student must have demonstrated superior intellectual
achievement. A bachelor's degree is strongly recommended.
The quality of the academic background as well as the per-
formance of the student in relation to the load attempted,
will be weighed. A genuine interest in human welfare is im-

dents who have failed academically or are ineligible to con-
tinue in another medical school will not be admitted.
Applications from students who are presently enrolled in
another medical school will be considered provided (1) the
student is eligible to continue in his present medical school,
(2) the school he is now attending is a member of the As-
sociation of American Medical Colleges, and (3) space is
available.
Prospective applicants must take the Medical College Ad-
missions Test, preferably, by the Spring preceding the sub-
mission of the application. A personal interview will be re-

ADMISSION AS
A SPECIAL STUDENT
When to Apply: Each application for admission as a spe-
cial student must be reviewed by the University Admissions
Committee. Applications cannot be considered if they are
received after the dates specified in the Catalog; and it
would be desirable for a person considering application as a
special student to initiate such an application at least three
months in advance of the term he wishes to enter, in order
to allow time for additional evidence to be presented if it
should be requested by the Admissions Committee.
Special students may be admitted to the various schools
and colleges of the Upper Division only by approval of the
University Admissions Committee. Each case will be con-
sidered on an individual basis. Applications for admission as
a special student must include: (1) records of previous edu-
cational experience (high school or college transcripts); (2) a
statement as to the type of studies to be pursued; (3) a brief
statement of the reason or reasons for selecting a special
program other than a regular one; (4) satisfactory evidence
of ability to pursue these studies for example, a student to
enroll as a special student for some technical courses and
who feels qualified to do so by reason of employment or
other experience; (5) satisfactory scores on such ability or
achievement tests as may be prescribed in individual cases
by the University Admissions Committee.


ADMISSION AS
A TRANSIENT STUDENT
Subject to availability of faculty, space and facilities, a reg-
ular undergraduate student in good standing at another ac-
credited collegiate institution may be permitted to enroll at
the University of Florida as a transient student in order,to
complete work to transfer back to the parent institution. No
evaluation will be made of work previously completed and
it is the student's responsibility to secure such approval as
the parent institution may require.
Transient students are registered as NON-DEGREE stu-
dents and no application for admission is required. The ap-
propriate forms for enrolling as a NON-DEGREE student
should be requested from the Office of the Registrar. Since
registration is subject to the availability of space, approval to
enroll as a non-degree student cannot be given prior to the
first day of classes in the term for which the student wishes
to enroll.
Enrollment as a NON-DEGREE student in no way implies
future admission as a regular student to the University of
Florida.

CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS-
FLORIDA OR NON-FLORIDA
(Section 6C-7.05, Florida Administrative Code)
(1) For the purpose of assessing registration and tuition
fees, a student shall be classified as a "Florida" or "non-
Florida" student.
(a) A "Florida student" is a person who has domicile in
and who shall have resided in the state of Florida for at
least twelve (12) consecutive months immediately pre-
ceding the first day of classes of the academic term in
which the student enrolls. In determining residency,
the university may require evidence such as voter regis-
tration, driver's license, automobile registration, loca-
tion of bank account, rent receipts or any other relevant
materials as evidence that the applicant has maintained
continuous residency. Physical presence for the entire
twelve-month period need not be required so long as
the conduct of the student, taken in total, manifests an
intention to make Florida his or her permanent dwell-
ing place. If such a student is a minor, it shall mean that
the parent or parents, or legal guardian of the student
shall have domicile in and have resided in the state of
Florida for the period stated above. "Florida student"
classification shall also be construed to include stu-
dents who hold an Immigration and Naturalization
Form 1-151, Resident Alien Registration Receipt Card,
or Cuban Nationals or Vietnamese Refugees who are
considered as Resident Aliens, provided such students
meet the residency requirement stated above and com-
ply with subsection (2) below. The burden of establish-
ing facts which justify classification of a student as a
resident and domiciliary entitled to "Florida student"
registration rates is on the applicant for such classifica-
tion.
(b) In applying this policy:
1. "Student" shall mean a person admitted to the in-
stitution or a person allowed to register at the institu-
tion on a space available basis.
2. "Minor" shall mean a person who has not attained
the age of 18 years, and whose disabilities of minority
have not been removed by reason of marriage or by a
court of competent jurisdiction.
3. "Domicile" for fee paying purposes shall denote a
person's true, fixed, and permanent home and place
of habitation. It is the place where the applicant lives
and remains and to which he expects to return when
he leaves, without intent to establish domicile
elsewhere.
4. "Parent" shall mean a minor's father or mother, or
if one parent has custody of a minor applicant, it is
the parent having court assigned financial responsi-
bility for the education of the student; or if there is a
court appointed guardian or legal custodian of the
minor applicant, it shall mean the guardian or legal
custodian.


5. The term "dependent student," as used in this rule
is the same as a dependent as defined in sections
151(e)(1)(2)(3) and (4) of the Internal Revenue Code
of 1954. A copy of these provisions in the Internal
Revenue Code of 1954 is incorporated in this rule by
reference.
6. A "non-Florida" student is a person not meeting
the requirements of subsection (a) above.
(2) In all applications for admission or registration at the
institution on a space available basis, a Florida applicant,
or if a minor, the parent or legal guardian of the minor ap-
plicant, shall make and file with such application a written
statement, under oath, that the applicant is a bonafide
citizen, resident, and domiciliary of the state of Florida,
entitled as such to classification as a "Florida student" un-
der the terms and conditions prescribed for citizens, resi-
dents, and domiciliaries of the state of Florida. All claims
to "Florida student" classification must be supported by
evidence as stated in 6C-7.05(1) if requested by the regis-
tering authority.
(3) A "non-Florida student" or, if a minor, his parent or
guardian, after having been a resident and domiciliary of
Florida for twelve (12) consecutive months, may apply for
and be granted reclassification prior to the first day of
classes of any subsequent term; provided, however, that
those students who are non-resident aliens or who are in
the United States on a non-immigration visa will not be
entitled to reclassification. An application for reclass-
ification as a "Florida student" shall comply with pro-
visions of subsection (2) above. An applicant who has
been classified as a "non-Florida" student at time of ori-
ginal enrollment shall furnish evidence as stated in
6C-7.05(1) to the satisfaction of the registering authority
that the applicant has maintained continuous residency in
the state for the twelve months required to establish resi-
dence for tuition purposes. In the absence of such evi-
dence, the applicant shall not be reclassified as a "Florida
student." In addition, the application for reclassification
must be accompanied by a certified copy of a declaration
of intent to establish legal domicile in the state, which in-
tent must have been filed with the Clerk of the Circuit
Court, as provided by Section 222.17, Florida Statutes. If
the request for reclassification and the necessary docu-
mentation is not received by the registrar prior to the last
day of registration for the term in which the student in-
tends to be reclassified, the student will not be reclassified
for that term.
(4) Unless evidence to the contrary appears, it shall be
presumed by the registering authority of the institution at
which a student is registering that:
(a) The spouse of any person who is classified or is
eligible for classification as a "Florida student" is like-
wise entitled to classification as a "Florida student."
This provision will not apply in the case of students
who are non-resident aliens or who are in the United
States on a non-immigration visa.
(b) If an applicant's eligibility for classification as a
"Florida student" is based on the residency of the
spouse, the spouse shall make and file with the applica-
tion a written statement under oath, that said person is
the spouse of the applicant and a bonafide citizen, resi-
dent and domiciliary of the state of Florida, entitled as
such to classification as a "Florida student."
(c) No person over the age of 18 years shall be deemed
to have gained residence while attending any educa-
tional institution in this state as a full-time student, as
such status is defined by the Board of Regents, in the
absence of a clear demonstration that he has estab-
lished domicile and residency in the state, as provided
under subsection (3) above.
(d) Any "Florida student" who remains in the state, af-
ter his parent previously domiciled in Florida or sta-
tioned in Florida on military orders removes from this
state, shallrbe entitled to remain classified as a "Florida
student" so long as his or her attendance at a school or
schools in Florida shall be deemed "continuous." How-
ever, such student claiming continuous attendance





General
EXPENSES


must have been enrolled at a school, college or univer-
sity for a normal academic year in each calendar year, or
the appropriate portion or portions thereof, from the
beginning of the period for which continuous atten-
dance is claimed. Such a student need not attend sum-
mer sessions or other such intersession beyond the nor-
mal academic year in order to render his attendance
"continuous."
(5) Appeal from a determination denying Florida student
status to any applicant therefore may be initiated after ap-
propriate administrative remedies are exhausted by the fil-
Ing of a petition for review pursuant to Section 120.68 F.S.
in the District Court of Appeal in the appellate district in
which the institution maintains its headquarters or where
a party resides.
(6) Any student granted status as a "Florida student,"
which status is based on a sworn statement which is false
shall, upon determination of such falsity, be subject to
such disciplinary sanctions as may be imposed by the pres-
ident of the university.
(7) Special Categories-The following categories shall be
treated as Florida residents for tuition purposes if ade-
quate documentation is provided:
(a) A member of the Armed Services of the United
States who is. stationed in Florida on active duty
pursuant to military orders, the spouse and dependent
students.
(b) A veteran of the Armed Forces of the United States
of America with twenty (20) or more years of active mil-
itary service, including the spouse and dependent stu-
dents of such veteran's immediate family, provided that
the veteran is in Florida at time of retirement or moves
to Florida within one year following retirement and
files a declaration of Florida domicile.
(c) Full-time elementary, secondary, and community
college faculty members under current teaching con-
tracts in the state of Florida and their spouses and de-
pendent students.

emed to have had residency in Florida during times of

(8) Reciprocal Agreements. The Board of Regents may
enter into agreements with appropriate agencies and in-
stitutions of higher education in other states and foreign
countries providing for the reciprocal exchange of stu-
dents enrolled and prospective in higher educational in-
stitutions to facilitate utilization of public higher educa-
tional institutions In this State and other states or coun-
tries. Such agreements may include provisions for waiver
or reduction of non-resident tuition for designated cate-
gories of students and may include contractual payments
to such other state or country, subject to the availability of
appropriations. Such agreements shall have as their
purpose the mutual improvement of educational advan-
tages for residents of this State and such other states or

STUDENT AFFAIRS


Student Affairs
The following information describes the responsibilities of
the various offices charged with assistance to students at the
University of Florida. Additional information may be found
in THE FLORIDA STUDENT GUIDE and THE CAMPUS DI-
RECTORY.


VICE PRESIDENT FOR
STUDENT AFFAIRS
The Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs is a
focal point for student concerns and strives to make the ed-
ucational experience for students at the University of Florida
as meaningful as possible. The Vice President for Student Af-
fairs works to maintain and improve good communications
and working relationships among and between students,
faculty, and administration.
The goals of the Division of Student Affairs include: de-
veloping effective and efficient services and programs for
students through the various departments within Student
Affairs; integrating student affairs and academic affairs;
directly involving students in the affairs of the institution;
encouraging a sense of community among students, faculty,
and administration; and increasing accessibility to and at-
tractiveness of the University of Florida to a wide variety of
persons.
The Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs is lo-
cated in 123 Tigert Hall and is open to assist individual stu-
dents and groups in matters concerning them. All students
are encouraged to share in the responsibility for enabling
the various divisions of the University of Florida community
to meet the needs of students.
The Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs has ad-
ministrative responsibility for the following offices and pro-
grams at the University of Florida: Office for Student Serv-
ices, Student Housing Office, Office for Student Financial
Affairs, Career Resource Center, J. Wayne Reitz Union, and
University Counseling Center.


OFFICE FOR
STUDENT SERVICES
The basic commitment of the Office of the Dean for Stu-
dent Services at the University of Florida is to the total devel-
opment of each individual student so that he or she might
achieve full potential as a human being. Staff members strive
to help students become self-directive in all their activities.
The purposes of the Office for Student Services are to con-
tribute to the attainment of the educational goals of the Uni-
versity of Florida by: helping to structure appropriate experi-
ences for the intellectual, psychological, social and physical
development of each student; providing opportunities to
meet students' need for personal attention; assisting stu-
dents in the development of their career objectives; making
students aware of and encouraging the use of the resources
of the University; interpreting the goals, objectives and ac-
tions of the institution to students; encouraging the devel-
opment ofa sense of community among students, faculty
and staff; helping students to develop purpose in their lives
a system of values of which they are aware and a sense of
personal integrity; and assisting in the development of uni-
versity policy and procedures.
Functions emerge from purposes, and the Office for Stu-
dent Services at the University of Florida carries on these
functions: individual advising, student advising, new stu-
dent programs, coordination of programs for the physically
handicapped, fraternity and sorority coordination, minority
student affairs, veteran student affairs, committee responsi-
bility for student petitions and admissions, women's pro-
grams, transfer student center, leadership skill development,
student judicial affairs, student withdrawals, and students
older than average programs.


The International Student Center and the Institute of
Black Culture are also operational units of the Office for Stu-
dent Services.
INTERNATIONAL STUDENT SERVICES
The International Student Services Center assists interna-
tional students in adjusting to the changing life style and
study habits in a new and sometimes perplexing environ-
ment. Special services are provided related to foreign educa-
tional and cultural backgrounds; language, legal, em-
ployment, academic, and personal matters; U.S. immigration
and other government agency responsibilities as aliens; and
currency exchange. The focus is on helping international
students achieve their educational goals, while providing an
insight into the culture of the United States through a pro-
gram of social activities, orientation seminars, and com-
munity visits.
INSTITUTE OF BLACK CULTURE
The Institute of Black Culture is an educational tool for
students at the University of Florida. It is a facility for en-
lightenment and black awareness where Afro-Americans can
focus on their history, literature, art, culture, and life style. It
is also a place where whites can develop a better under-
standing of blacks and an appreciation of black contribu-
tions to American society. The center sponsors programs, ex-
hibits, and related activities.
SERVICES FOR HANDICAPPED STUDENTS
The Office for Student Services provides assistance for dis-
abled students. Services are varied dependent on individual
needs, and include but are not limited to: special campus
orientation, registration assistance, securing auxiliary learn-
ing aids, and assistance in general University activities.
Handicapped students are encouraged to contact this office
to obtain any needed assistance.


STUDENT HOUSING
The University of Florida offers its resident students a
unique and exciting residence hall program. It is our belief
that living on campus is a profitable educational experience
that the students will long remember. Our desire is to pro-
vide accommodations and programs to meet the needs of
our students while promoting the overall educational goals
and objectives of the University.
The University of Florida has a large resident population
composed of both in-state and out-of-state students, as well
as students from 90 different foreign countries. Since our
students come from differing environmental backgrounds
and social experiences, they bring with them varying needs
and expectations. Because of this diversity in our student
body, we feel it would be a disservice to our students to take
a unilateral approach in developing our residence hall pro-
gram. Therefore, we have developed a program based upon
alternatives and choices. Our students may select from vari-
ous housing accommodations and environments the style
that best fits their needs.


GENERAL INFORMATION
All freshmen who apply for admission to the University
will receive a Housing Application Card upon approval of
admission.
The University of Florida has no residency requirement.
Entering students are free to choose either on-campus or
off-campus accommodations. Students who voluntarily con-
tract for on-campus housing normally must do so for the en-
tire academic year (August to May) if enrolled. However, res-
idents must be full-time students to be eligible to reside in
the residence halls. Full-time enrollment for residency is de-
fined as being enrolled in 9 credit hours if an undergraduate
and 8 credit hours if a graduate student.
All students other than beginning freshmen must initiate
their own arrangements for housing either by (1) applying to




General

STUDENT AFFAIRS


the Director of Housing for assignment to University Hous-
ing facilities, or (2) obtaining accommodations in private
housing (see Off Campus Housing).
All correspondence concerning application for University
housing should be addressed to the Director of Housing,
University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida, 32611. An applica-
tion for residence hall space for students other than
freshmen may be filled at any time after an application for
admission to the University has been approved. Prospective
students are urged to apply as early as possible because of
the housing demand.
For all students other than beginning freshmen, applica-
tion requests are considered first-come, first-served, on a
space-available basis.
Roommate requests shall be considered if the individuals
wishing to room together submit their applications on the
same date, clearly indicate their desire to room together on
their respective applications, elect the same visitation choice
and assignment option, and are within similar academic
classification.
Accessible housing is available for handicapped students.
Students with special needs should indicate these needs on
application requests.
ROOM STYLES
There are several room styles to fit the individual student's
preference. The most prevalent is the double room, accom-
modating two students, with central floor bath facilities.
Doubles are found in every area except Beaty Towers and
range from air-conditioned units with phones in Hume Hall,
to rooms with bay windows in Murphree.
All rooms have individual closets, storage space, dresser,
bed and mattress, study desk and chairs.
Room rates vary, depending on such features as air condi-
tioning, phone service, and floor space. See rental rate chart
for specific charges.
Beaty Towers provide apartment living on campus. These
two-bedroom apartments are fully contained with their own
bathroom, study, kitchen, and two separate bedrooms for
four students. Each apartment is fully carpeted, air condi-
tioned, and has a telephone.
The Murphree Residential Area offers suites for two stu-
dents. These non-air-conditioned facilities offer the student
more individual living space. Each suite is made up of two
rooms one designed as a study and living area, the other
as a bedroom with a lavatory.
THE RESIDENCE HALL STAFF
AND STUDENT GOVERNMENT
A full complement of professional and para-professional
staff members is available to assist students in becoming a
part of campus life. The staff in residence act as referral
agents in acquainting students with the many resources of
the University. Our staff are also involved in a range of ac-
tivities, from initiating social and intramural athletic pro-
grams to supplementing the various academic and develop-
mental programs. In addition, staff members supervise and
enforce policies designed to create an atmosphere con-
ducive to learning and growth.
Each floor or section is supervised by an undergraduate
Resident Assistant, the RA. Working in close conjunction
with the RA is a graduate student, the Hall Director, who co-
ordinates the area activities and insures, through the RAs, an
environment for learning. The Assistant Director of Housing
for Residence Life is a professional staff member and is re-
sponsible for the overall administrative and educational
functions within the residence area. The entire housing staff
is committed to servicing our students in the most effective
and responsible way possible. The student is why the staff
exists, and his/her development is our primary goal.
INTER RESIDENCE HALL ASSOCIATION
All students in the residence halls are encouraged to par-
ticipate in organizational activities which can play a signifi-
cant part in, their educational, cultural, social, and recrea-


tional life. The Inter Residence Hall Association was estab-
lished to help stimulate this participation. IRHA represents
the collective interests of all resident students. The organiza-
tion also serves as a channel of communication between res-
idence area government councils, the University com-
munity, and other outside interests. This self-government
program at both the hall and area levels offers residents the
opportunity to help establish guidelines for group living and
to assist in the planning of social and educational activities
for their fellow students.

GENERAL SERVICES
TELEPHONES. A telephone is conveniently located in each
student room except in Buckman Co-op. Each room tele-
phone provides 24-hour service on campus and within the
Gainesville area; cost of local service is included in the rental
rate. Charges for long-distance calls are billed monthly to
each room by Southern Bell, and each student is responsible
for paying directly to the telephone company.
FOOD SERVICE. The Division of Housing is not directly af-
filiated with the University Food Service, and meals are not
included in the housing rent payment. However, Servoma-
tion Mathias, a private food service operation, does maintain
cafeterias and snackbars on campus and offers meal plans.
Hume Hall and Broward Hall have cafeterias. Snackbars are
located in Tolbert Hall and Graham Hall. Cafeterias are also
located in Johnson Hall, the Reitz Student Union, and the
Medical Center. It is the policy of the University to provide
well-prepared food at the lowest possible price.
REFRIGERATOR RENTAL. Most residence areas have a re-
frigerator in every room, and cost is included in the room
rent. If students bring their own refrigerators, they must
make arrangements for installation and removal. No refund
will be granted if a student brings his refrigerator to a hall al-
ready furnishing such units.
CUSTODIAL SERVICE. Each residence hall (except co-ops)
has a staff of experienced custodians assigned to do general
cleaning of public areas, bathrooms, lounges, and hallways.
Other specific tasks are done in order to maintain good
housekeeping throughout the halls. Student room cleaning
is the responsibility of each resident.
INTERNAL SECURITY. Residence hall security is
monitored by the residence hall staff; external building se-
curity generally is the responsibility of the University Police
Department. Trained Housing Division Security Assistants
patrol the areas immediately adjacent to the residence halls.
VENDING. Various vending machines are conveniently lo-
cated in all residence halls for the comfort and pleasure of
students desiring such services.
LAUNDRY FACILITIES. Coin-operated washers and dryers
are provided in each residence area. Most students provide
their own irons; however, some area governments provide
irons on a check-out basis. Ironing boards are located on all
floors.

SPECIAL HOUSING AREAS: CO-OP,
HONORS, SCHOLARSHIP, GRAD, FAMILY
Recognizing the diversity of students' needs, the Division
of Housing offers several different living environments.
New students are assigned primarily to double or triple
rooms when first applying to the University, but once on
campus they may qualify for specialized areas. Students with
financial needs may interview for membership in one of the
three cooperative living areas: Reid, Buckman, or North Hall.
These co-ops offer reduced rental rates in exchange for stu-
dent participation in the daily operational tasks, an equiva-
lent of approximately twenty hours per quarter.
Yulee Scholarship Hall provides single rooms for those
students who qualify with a required minimum grade point
average of 3.0 and are at least 21 years of age or have junior
or above classification.
Qualifying freshmen may be invited to live in the "Honors
Hall" (East Hall) with other selected freshmen and partici-
pate in an accelerated academic program. For more informa-







STUDENT AFFAIRS

and the Honors Hall, contact the Director of Honors Pro-
gram (telephone (904) 392-1521).
Upper Division and graduate students residing on campus
generally live in apartments in Beaty Towers. Four students
share an apartment with two bedrooms, complete kitchen
and private bath. Apartments in Schucht Village are also
available to students, with priority being given to students in
medical or dental school.

FAMILY STUDENT HOUSING
Family Housing apartments are reserved for married stu-
dents and their children (if any), and student parents with-
out spouses who have dependent minor children under
their legal care or who qualify under the provisions of Feder-
al Regulations Title IX.
A student must have applied for admission to the Univer-
sity of Florida prior to applying for on-campus family stu-
dent housing. He/she must be registered as a full-time stu-
dent as defined by his/her college or school during the quar-
ter in which housing is desired in order to qualify for a family
housing apartment assignment. In order to maintain oc-
cupancy, the student must make normal progress toward a
degree as determined by his/her college or school. As appli-
cable, proof of marriage will be required, or the necessary
documents to support that a minor children) is in the legal
care of a student parent without a spouse.
Family housing facilities consist of one- and two-bedroom
apartments, a few townhouses and efficiencies. These units
come furnished, unfurnished, air conditioned and non-air
conditioned. Most all Family Housing villages are located on
campus or within a mile and a half of the University's main
campus.
Family income limits are set by the Department of Hous-
ing and Urban Development For Maquire Village only. There
are no income limits for Corry, Diamond, Tanglewood, or
University Village South.
For additional information, write or call Division of Hous-
ing, Family Housing Office, University of Florida,
Gainesville, 32611, telephone (904) 392-2176.

OFF CAMPUS HOUSING
The Housing Office functions as a listing and referral
agency for privately owned rental housing of all types listed
with the University for referral to students, faculty, and staff.
This office maintains extensive listings of apartments,
houses, rooming units, trailers, and trailer park lots offered
for rent to students, faculty, and staff. Each spring, the office
compiles a comprehensive list of major apartment and
rooming unit developments. This list is available to anyone
who requests it in person or by mail from the Off Campus
Housing clerk.
It is recommended that a personal inspection of the rental
facility and a conference with the owner (or agent) be made
prior to making a deposit or signing a lease agreement. Per-
sons seeking off-campus housing should plan to arrive in
Gainesville well in advance of the semester in which hous-
ing is needed. For example, Fall Semester arrangements are'
possible as early as April, Winter Semester after mid-Novem-
ber, etc. For best results, visit during the week not week-
ends after preliminary information on available rentals
has been obtained.
Landlord/tenant problems are handled by Student
Government's attorney, Room 302, Reitz Union, telephone
(904) 392-1623.
Inquiries about off-campus housing should be directed to
the Off Campus Housing clerk, University of Florida,
Gainesville, 32611, telephone (904) 392-2181.
Off-Campus Cooperative Living opportunities are also
available. Qualifications for membership are scholastic abili-
ty, and reference of good character. Inquiries should be ad-
dressed to: Collegiate Living Organization (Co-ed), 117 NW
15th St., and Georgia Seagle Hall (men), 1002 W. University
Avenue.


STUDENT FINANCIAL AFFAIRS
The Office for Student Financial Affairs provides financial
assistance and counseling for students who need help in
paying college expenses. Financial aid is awarded according
to each individual's need in relation to college costs. Awards
may include loans, grants, scholarships, or part-time em-
ployment and may be offered to students singly or in various
combinations. Evidence of financial need is determined by
the College Scholarship Service on the basis of the financial
information provided in the Financial Aid Form. The applica-
tion period for financial aid is January 1 through March 1 for
the academic year beginning the following September. Ap-
plications submitted after March 1 are accepted on a funds
available basis only. A new application for financial aid must
be submitted each year. Financial Aid Applications may be
obtained by writing to the Office of STUDENT FINANCIAL
AFFAIRS, Room 111, Anderson Hall.
Applicants for financial assistance must complete a Col-
lege Scholarship Service Financial Aid Form (FAF) and Uni-
versity of Florida Financial Aid Supplement. Undergraduate
students must apply for the Basic Educational Opportunity
Grant by checking Box 1, Item 41 on the FAF. An official
award cannot be made until the student has been accepted
for admission to the University of Florida. However, he/she
should not wait for notice of acceptance but should apply as
soon as possible after January 1. Aid for graduate students
through the Office for Student Financial Affairs is limited to
part-time employment and certain loan programs. Applica-
tions for other aid; e.g., fellowships, assistantships and loans,
should be made to the head of the department of the
student's major or the Dean of the Graduate School.
Loans
Loans are available in two forms. Long-term loans are low
interest loans with payment deferred until the student grad-
uates, withdraws, or changes his or her status as a full-time
student. A full-time student carries a minimum of 12 hours
for financial aid purposes. Short-term loans are emergency
loans available to meet temporary needs. Recipients must be
full-time students in good standing with the University of
Florida. The maximum amount that may be borrowed in any
quarter is $200, or the amount of in-state Fees. Graduate stu-
dent eligibility is $250 or the amount of in-state Fees. Short-
term loan repayment must be made by the first day of the
last month of the quarter in which the loan is obtained.
Grants
Financial assistance in the form of grants from Federal and
State sources is available to undergraduate students. Such
grants require exceptional financial need and do not have to
be repaid by the student.
Scholarships
Approximately 400 scholarships are awarded through the
Office for Student Financial Affairs to the most outstanding
undergraduate students showing financial need as de-
termined by the College Scholarship Service. Funds for the
scholarship programs are, of course, limited and in most
cases amount to $500 per year. Additional awards are made
by donors who select the recipient directly. Students are
urged to consult the resources of their home community,
civic clubs, service organizations and county educators.
Part-time Employment
Part-time employment may be awarded to a student as
part of the total financial aid package. The University of Flor-
ida offers part-time employment to approximately 3,500 stu-
dents each year. In addition, many students work off-cam-
pus in the Gainesville community. Normally a student works
only 15 hours or less each week and earns between $900 and
$1800 per year, depending upon personal skills and experi-
ence.

the Reitz Union. Staff members will be happy to discuss
ideas, concerns, and needs for individuals or groups.

j. WAYNE REITZ UNION
The J. Wayne Reitz Union is the official center of campus


activities. The provision of facilities, services, and a varied
program of activities available to all persons of the Univer-
sity "community" serves as the basic purpose of the Union.

ities and dining opportunities. A cafeteria, snack bar, a res-
taurant dining area, the Orange and Brew, the Sugar Cone,
and complete catering services for small intimate groups or

Of particular significance to the educational program of
the University is the Student Activities Center located on the

work space for Student Government, the Student Honor
Court, and many other student groups enhances the effec-
tiveness of the total student activities program of the Uni-
versity.
The Reitz Union plans and promotes many social, cultural,
and recreational activities for the campus community.
Among the regular activities are art exhibits, International
Dinners, leisure classes, current and cultural films, a per-

naments, music appreciation listening hours, fashion shows,
international activities, and special holiday parties are all a

vides excellence in design, equipment for staging and light-
ing, and acoustics.

STUDENT ACTIVITIES AND
ORGANIZATIONS
Student Government: Student Government at the Univer-
sity of Florida is a cooperative organization for advancing
student interests and is based on mutual confidence among
and between the student body, the faculty, and the adminis-
tration. Considerable authority has been granted the student
body for the regulation and conduct of student affairs. The
criterion in granting authority to the Student Government
has been the disposition of UF students to accept responsi-
bility commensurate with the authority granted them. Stu-
dent Government has several resources at its disposal to
fulfill its mission, including the allocation of approximately
three million dollars per year in student activity and service
fees, substantial authority in the regulation of co-curricular
activities, and administration of the Student Court. The Uni-
versity of Florida faculty and staff feel that training in accep-
tance of responsibility for the conduct of student affairs at
the University is a valuable part of the educational growth
and development of the individual student.
Student Government is a body politic, occupying its
franchise under grant from the Board of Regents and subject
to its continued approval. Student Government is patterned
on the state and national form of government but adapted
to the local needs of the Student Body. Powers are dis-
tributed into the three branches: (1) legislative, which is em-
bodied in the Student Senate; (2) judicial, which is em-
bodied in the Student Honor Court and the Traffic Court; (3)
executive, embodied in the President and the Treasurer of
the Student Body. Members of all three branches are elected
directly by the Student Body, of which all UF students are
members. In addition to elected offices, many appointed
positions have been established in Stude eent Government, in-
cluding Cabinet and sub-Cabinet, Student Court, and the
Traffic Court posts.
Student Government, recognizing its limitations as a true
"government," attempts to exercise influence on govern-
ments at all levels through conferences, lobbying, research,
and the advancement of proposals for change.
Students may apply for various positions within the stu-
dent government structure by contacting the Student Gov-
ernment offices on the third floor of the J. Wayne Reitz Un-
ion.
Student Senate: The Student Senate is composed of repre-
sentatives elected from the colleges and living areas on the
campus and in general acts as the Legislative Branch of Stu-
dent Government.
Religious Activities: The University of Florida welcomes
the contributions of religious traditions to the campus com-
munity. The churches, centers, and organizations associated
with the University offer a rich variety of programs and min-
istries. There are also interdenominational and non-
denominational activities fostered by the Department of Re-
ligion and the Campus Ministries Cooperative.
Social Fraternities: Twenty-seven national social
fraternities have established chapters at the University in ad-
dition to three national colonies. The general work of the
fraternities is supervised by the Interfraternity Council, com-
posed of the President of each fraternity. The national
fraternities at the University of Florida are Alpha Epsilon Pi,
Alpha Gamma Rho, Alpha Phi Alpha, Alpha Tau Omega,
Beta Theta Pi, Chi Phi, Delta Chi, Delta Tau Delta, Delta Up-
silon, Kappa Alpha, Kappa Alpha Psi, Kappa Sigma, Lambda
Chi Alpha, Phi Beta Sigma, Phi Gamma Delta, Phi Delta
Theta, Phi Kappa Psi, Phi Kappa Tau, Pi Kappa Alpha, Pi
Kappa Phi, Pi Lambda Phi, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Sigma Chi,
Sigma Nu, Sigma Phi Epsilon, Tau Epsilon Phi, and Theta Chi.
The three colonies are Delta Sigma Phi, Sigma Tau Gamma
and Zeta Beta Tau.
Nineteen women's social sororities have established chap-
ters at the University in addition to two new colonies. Six-
teen have built chapter houses and three live in other hous-


ing arrangements. These living quarters serve as the center of
the activities of the individual sororities. Primary jurisdiction
in sorority matters is vested in the Panhellenic Council. The
chapters at the University of Florida are Alpha Chi Omega,
Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha Epsilon Phi, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Alpha
Omicron Pi, Chi Omega, Delta Delta Delta, Delta Gamma,
Delta Phi Epsilon, Delta Sigma Theta, Kappa Alpha Theta,
Kappa Delta, Kappa Kappa Gamma, Phi Mu, Phi Sigma
Sigma, Sigma Tau Delta, Sigma Kappa, Zeta Phi Beta, Zeta
Tau Alpha, and the two colonies are Alpha Zi Delta and
Sigma Gamma Rho.

ORGANISTS
Clubs and Societies: There are more than 225 student
clubs and organizations on the campus representing varied
interests and activities. These include academic interest
clubs; social, religious, and professional groups; hobby
groups; and organizations dedicated to a wide variety of per-
sonal and community concerns. Many of the organizations
are funded by Student Government through the allocation
of the student activity and service fee monies.


ACADEMIC HONESTY
The University of Florida expects students to be honest in
all of their University class work. Therefore, students are re-
quired to commit themselves to academic honesty by sign-
ing the following statement as part of the admissions pro-
cess, and again each semester on their academic advisement
card.
"I understand that the University of Florida expects its stu-
dents to be honest in all of their academic work. I agree to
adhere to this commitment to academic honesty, and under-
stand that my failure to comply with this commitment may
result in disciplinary action, up to and including expulsion
from the University."
This statement serves to remind students of the obligation
they assume as students at the University of Florida. Matters
of violations of academic honesty are adjudicated by the
Student Honor Court.


STUDENT CONDUCT CODE
I. Introduction: Students enjoy the rights and privileges
that accrue to membership in a university community and
are subject to the responsibilities which accompany that
membership. In order to have a system of effective campus
governance, it is incumbent upon all members of the cam-
pus community to notify appropriate officials of any vio-
lations of regulations and to assist in their enforcement. All


conduct regulations of the University are printed and made
available to all students and are applicable upon publication
in the Independent Florida Alligator, the University Catalog,
the UF Student Guide, or other reasonable means of
notification.
II. Authority: The President is charged with the responsi-
bility for establishing and enforcing regulations governing
student life. Regulations are designed to enable the Univer-
sity to protect against the conduct of those who, by their ac-
tions, impair or infringe on the rights of others or interfere
with the orderly operations of the University. Discipline may
be imposed for offenses against the Code occurring at any of
the following locations or activities:

on the Possession and Use of Firearms.
13. Actions or conduct which hinders, obstructs, or
otherwise interferes with the implementation or en-
forcement of the Student Conduct Code.
14. Failure to appear before the Committee on Stu-
dent Conduct or the Director of Student Judicial Af-
fairs and to testify as a witness when reasonably

cle registration regulations.
E. Other judicial bodies may be established and vested
with jurisdiction by appropriate authority.
VI. Off-Campus Conduct: When a student violates Section
V-A-15 of this Student Conduct Code by an offense com-
mitted off the campus and which is not associated with a
University-connected activity, the disciplinary authority of
the University will not be used merely to duplicate the pen-
alty awarded for such an act under applicable ordinances
and laws. The University will take disciplinary action against
a student for such an off-campus offense only when it is re-
quired by law to do so or when the nature of the offense is
such that in the judgment of the Director of Student Judicial
Affairs, the continued presence of the student on campus is
likely to interfere with the educational process and the or-
derly operation of the .University; the continued presence of
the student on campus is likely to endanger the health, safe-
ty, or welfare of the University Community or its property; or
the offense committed by the student is of such a serious na-
ture as to adversely affect the student's suitability as a mem-
ber of the university community.
If the Director of Student Judicial Affairs determines the
offense affects the University as stated above, then the Com-
mittee on Student Conduct shall hold a prompt hearing to
consider whether the offense is of such nature as set out
above; whether or not the student committed the offense;
and recommend appropriate action. The action of the Com-
mittee on Student Conduct shall be made independent of
any off-campus authority.
VII. Postponement of Hearing-Due to Pending or Possible
Criminal or Civil Charges: If the student charged with a vio-
lation of the Student Conduct Code, regardless of which pri-
mary judicial body may hear the matter, wishes to have the
hearing postponed because there is pending or possible civil
or criminal litigation which he/she feels might be prejudiced
by the findings of the hearing, such postponement may be
granted provided the student agrees to accept conduct pro-
bation or suspension, depending upon the gravity of the of-
fense. Such probation or suspension will be determined and
activated by the Director of Student Judicial Affairs and will
remain in force until such time as the student requests a


hearing before the appropriate primary judicial body and
the hearing is held. The student shall be informed whether
he/she would be placed on probation or suspended prior to
making a decision to postpone the hearing.
VIII. Student Waiver of Right to Hearing: In the event a
student charged with an offense under paragraph V-A
wishes to waive in writing the right to a hearing by the ap-
propriate official or hearing body and the Director of Stu-
dent Judicial Affairs wishes to accept jurisdiction, the Direc-
tor of Student Judicial Affairs may make a determination of
fact and make a recommendation of appropriate action.
IX. Summary Hearing: When a student is accused of a vio-
lation of paragraph V-A of this Code, which in the opinion of
the Director of Student Judicial Affairs, if proven, would not
warrant a penalty in excess of two quarters probation, then
the Director of Student Judicial Affairs may require such
hearing to be held before the Chairperson of the Committee
on Student Conduct or his/her designated representative.
The hearing shall be held in accordance with paragraph III of
this Code.
X. Conflict of Jurisdiction: In the event that the offense is
within the jurisdiction of more than one primary judicial
body, the Director of Student Judicial Affairs shall determine
which judicial body shall hear the charge.
XI. Penalties: A student adjudged guilty of violations un-
der paragraph V may receive, except where specific penalties
are provided for, the following penalties:
A. Reprimand-Formal notice and official recognition
of misconduct as charged.
B. Conduct Probation-Deemed not in good standing
and cannot represent the University on any athletic team
other than intramurals or hold an office in any student
organization registered with the University. If the student
is found in violation of the probation by subsequent vio-
lation of this Code prior to the completion of the proba-
tion period, he/she may receive expulsion or any lesser
penalty. The duration of the probation period and condi-
tions imposed shall be in proportion to the seriousness of
the misconduct.
C. Suspension-Requires the student to leave the uni-
versity community for a given or an indefinite period of
time depending upon the seriousness of the misconduct.
D. Expulsion-Deprives a student of his/her opportun-
ity to continue as a member of university community.
E. Payment of Damages-In addition to the foregoing
penalties, a student may be required to pay for damage
to University property provided that such compensation
be limited to the actual cost of repair or replacement of
such property.

contact the Office for Student Services or consult the Stu-
dent Guide.

STUDENT LIFE


Intramural-Recreational Sports
Intramural-Recreational Sports is a significant part of the
total educational community at the University of Florida. All
students, faculty and staff are encouraged to participate vol-
untarily in the program which has become an important
phase of extra-curricular activities on the campus and offers
opportunity for exercise, recreation, social contacts and
friendly competition.
Student administration is a tradition in the intramural pro-
gram at the university. Students officiate the games, manage
the leagues, act as Student Directors in the Intramural Of-
fice, serve on the Protest Board and on the Intramural Policy
Board.
For unstructured leisure time activities, the university
community may picnic, boat and swim at Lake Wauburg,
check-out equipment from the equipment rooms on cam-
pus, play on any of the 18 football fields, 15 softball fields, 12
volleyball courts, 34 tennis courts, 12 four-wall or 16 three-
wall handball-racquetball courts, 2 squash courts, 4 indoor
or 5 outdoor basketball courts, swim in Florida Pool or ex-
ercise in the weight-training rooms. The Stephen C.
O'Connell Center.will be an asset in terms of being able to
accommodate some extra indoor activities not available in
the past. The center will have 8 volleyball courts, 16 badmin-
ton courts as well as an indoor track (6 lanes, 222 yards, 60
yard straight away) olympic size swimming pool, fencing-
karate room and many other indoor facilities that will
enhance the intramural program.
For structured competitive play, the department organizes
tournaments in the following leagues: All-University Special
Events, All-University Women, Co-Recreational, Engineer-
ing, Fraternity, Law, Little Sisters, Men's Independent, Men's
and Women's Dormitory, Married Students, Sorority and
Student Wives. The intramural clubs program offers instruc-

Mlk I ll


tion, recreation and competition in approximately 43 clubs.
Areas of interest include cubs in: dance related clubs, indi-
vidual and team sports, field sports, water related clubs, rec-
reational sports clubs and martial arts.
The current importance and growth of intramural-recrea-
tional sports on campus is unmatched in the history of the
university. The staff invites everyone to use this resource at
the university to fulfill their leisure-time interest.



AUTOMOBILE AND TRAFFIC
REGULATIONS
Any student of the University of Florida is eligible to reg-
ister a motor vehicle for use as authorized and to operate
and park a registered vehicle on campus. The type of parking
decal issued is determined by the student's local residence
and student classification.
Students desiring to park on campus during restricted
hours must register their automobiles, motorcycles or
mopeds at the University Traffic and Parking Department,
108B Johnson Hall, during their first registration period. Fail-
ure to do so will result in a parking citation. There is a system
for fines and a point system for on-campus vehicle vio-
lations. Persons failing to respond to tickets will be subject
to an additional administrative fee of $5.00 and will not re-
ceive grades or an academic transcript until delinquent fines
and fees have been paid.
A copy of the rules governing traffic, parking and regis-
tration of vehicles on canipus may be obtained from the
Traffic and Parking Department located in Johnson Hall.
Each student is urged to familiarize himself with these regu-
lations upon registering at the University.

d. Any combination of the above until such time as the
charge is resolved and degree requirements are met.


MAXIMUM AND MINIMUM LOAD
Some colleges have a maximum load which is stated in the
catalog. In the absence of such a statement, the general Uni-
versity regulation applies. This regulation allows a maximum
load of 15 credits for a student who earned an average below
a "C" the preceding semester of attendance. The minimum
load for all undergraduate students is 12 hours.
Simultaneous enrollment in correspondence courses,, ex-
tension work at another college or university is counted in
computing the maximum, but not the minimum load.
At the time of registration, a student, upon the approval of
his or her dean, may register for less than the minimum or
more than the maximum load. After the late registration pe-
riod has closed, no.student attending under the above con-
ditions will be permitted to drop below the minimum load
unless the student successfully petitions the college in
which he or she is enrolled. The minimum load for fulltime
benefits from the VA or Social Security is 12 hours per
semester for undergraduate students.



DUAL ENROLLMENT
1. Definition: Dual Enrollment, as used in this regulation, re-
fers to a student taking on-campus courses simultaneously
at BOTH the University of Florida and another institution.
2. Dual Enrollment will be permitted ONLY under the fol-
lowing conditions:
a. Approval in writing for the dual enrollment must have
been secured by the student from the appropriate official
at EACH institution. A copy of such approval must be
furnished at the time of registration to the registrar at the
University of Florida.
b. A student will not be permitted to register at the Uni-
versity of Florida for a course which is a part of the cur-
riculum at the student's parent institution. This require-
ment also applies if courses are available at the parent in-
stitution which might be evaluated as equivalent or accep-
table substitutes for the University of Florida course. The
converse of these statements also applies to University of
Florida students registering for courses at another institu-
tion.
c. Priority in assignment to classes at the University of Flor-
ida will be given to regularly enrolled students.
d. A student taking courses at the University of Florida will
be required to register and attend classes under the Uni-
versity of Florida calendar.


e. The student will pay appropriate fees at the University
of Florida based on the number of credit hours for which
he or she is registered at this institution.
It is the student's responsibility to insure that an official
transcript of work completed under a dual registration is
forwarded to the parent institution. Certification to social se-
curity and veterans administration programs is also the re-
sponsibility of the individual student who must request each
individual institution to furnish records as might be neces-
sary.


NON-DEGREE REGISTRATION
A student not previously registered at the University of
Florida may with college approval register for one semester
only as a non-degree student. Members of the faculty and
staff and those with special permission from their college
may consider registering as non-degree students for more
than one semester. Registration will be on a space available
basis. Procedures for registering are available from the
Registrar's Office.


GRADES
Results of student's work are recorded in the Registrar's
Office as follows:
1. Undergraduate Students: Passing grades are A, B+, B,
C+, C, D+, D, in order of excellence, and S-Satisfactory.
Failing grades are E Failure, I Incomplete, U Un-
satisfactory, X Absent from examination, EW -
Dropped for nonattendance or unsatisfactory work, and
WF Withdrew failing. The grade of EW is not a valid
grade after 1979-80.
Grades of I and X are considered as failing grades. They
must be changed to passing grades in accordance with the
dates set in the University Calendar, or be converted to
grades of E.
In special situations where it is not possible to assign
regular grades at the end of the term, a deferred grade may
be assigned. The symbol for a.deferred grade is a grade of
H. This grade may be assigned only in special cases, such
as modular courses, confined to infirmary, and similar cir-
cumstances. A grade of H will not be computed in a
student's grade point average.
The degree-granting college may require a minimum
grade of C in a particular course or courses.
2. Graduate students: Passing grades for graduate students
are A, B+, B, C+, C and S. Grades of "C+," and "C" in
courses below 5000-level are acceptable for credit toward
graduate degrees only if the total program meets the B-av-
erage requirement. C+'and C grades in 5000-level courses
and above count toward a graduate degree only if an
.equal number of credit hours in courses numbered 5000 or
above have been earned with grades of B+ and A, respec-
tively.
SATISFACTORY-UNSATISFACTOIR GRADE OPTION
It is the University's desire to allow students to receive as
broad an education as possible. Therefore, students are en-
couraged to take courses in disciplines in which they may
not have the proper background. They may take such course
work as electives and receive a grade of S satisfactory or
U unsatisfactory. These grades become a part of a
student's record, but do not count in the grade point aver-
age as computed by the University of Florida. NOTE: Other
agencies or institutions might count the grade of U as a fail-
ing grade in their grade point average computation.
To be eligible to enroll under the S-U option, a student
must 1) be in good standing may not be on any type of
probation, or warning, 2) be classified as an undergraduate
student, and 3) have approval from proper university of-
ficials.
Only one course will ordinarily be approved in any one
term. Approvals for exception to this policy must be ob-







STUDENT ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


trained from the dean of the college in which the student is
registered.
The deadline for electing the S-U option is the last day for
dropping or adding a course as published in the calendar. In
addition, students who elect the S-U option may subse-
quently request that their instructors assign a standard
grade.


AVERAGES
1. Definitions: The term "average," as used in any univer-
sity regulations concerning probation or suspension,
always refers to the average on Work attempted at the Uni-
versity of Florida. Grades received at other institutions are
not averaged with grades received at the University of
Florida for the purpose of meeting any University average
requirement. Most honorary societies take into considera-
tion the quality of the work done at other institutions in
meeting any average requirements they may have.
2. How computed: Averages are determined by computing
the ratio of grade points to semester hours recorded as at-
tempted. Grade points are established by equating each
semester hour as follows: A with 4.0, B+ with 3.5, B with
3.0, C+ with 2.5, C with 2.0, D+ with 1.5, D with 1.0, and
E, WF, EW, I, and X with 0.0. The grade of EW is not a valid
grade after 1979-80. In computing averages, a course re-
peated is counted as many times as grades for it are re-
corded. Hours for grades of S, U, and H are not computed
in the University of Florida grade point average.
3. Grade Point Averages: Students' grade point averages
will be based on their overall work at the University of
Florida. That is, when students are admitted to the Univer-
sity of Florida their grade point averages begin and their
academic averages will be based upon work taken at the
University of Florida. While work transferred from other
institutions toward a degree program at the University of
Florida will count in total hours earned, such hours will
not be a part of the University of Florida grade point aver-
age.


PROBATION, SUSPENSION, AND
EXCLUSION FOR
ACADEMIC REASONS
The University of Florida is responsible for providing the
best possible education in an economical and efficient
manner. In order to discharge this responsibility, the Univer-
sity expects and requires reasonable academic progress from
its students. Continuation of students who have demon-
strated a lack of the necessary ability, preparation, industry,
or maturity to benefit reasonably from a program of univer-
sity study is inconsistent with the University's responsibility
as a tax supported institution.
The University of Florida Senate has enacted regulations
covering probation, suspension, and exclusion. These regu-
lations are directed toward enforcing the academic stan-
dards of the University. The academic standards of the Uni-
versity require both the maintenance of grade point aver-
ages consistent with a reasonable chance of satisfactory
completion of the University programs and reasonable con-
formance to the catalog description of the program of study
in which the student is engaged. Any college of the Univer-
sity may specify additional academic standards and students
are responsible for observing the regulations pertaining to
such standards.


PROBATION BECAUSE OF
UNSATISFACTORY
ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT
The purpose of academic probation is to recognize
formally the fact that a student may not be making satisfac-
tory progress.


The conditions of academic probation are intended to: (1)
relate to quality of achievement below standards required
ultimately to graduate; (2) recognize unsatisfactory work at
an early date; (3) be sufficiently significant to make clear to
the student, and the administration, the short-comings of
the student's performance; (4) provide occasion for counsel-
ing; (5) give students whose ultimate success is doubtful
further opportunity to demonstrate adequate performance.
All undergraduate students:
A student with less than a 2.0 grade point average overall
for University of Florida work shall be placed on scholarship
warning if he or she has a grade point deficit which is less
than ten.
A student with less than a 2.0 grade point average overall
for University of Florida work shall be placed on scholarship
probation if he or she has a grade point deficit of ten or
more, but less than twenty.
Any student who is eligible to return to the University af-
ter a suspension because of academic reasons will be placed
on final scholarship probation for his or her next term.
In addition to University probation, students may be
placed on probation by the colleges in which they are regis-
tered if they do not maintain normal academic progress in
the program of study in which they are engaged.


CONTINUATION OF PROBATION
All Undergraduate Students:
A student's scholarship warning shall be continued as
long as he or sh se has a grade point deficit of less than ten. A
student's scholarship probation shall be continued as long
as he or she has a grade point deficit of ten but less than
twenty. If the grade point deficit places him or her in anoth-
er probation category, the student shall be subject to the
provisions of that category.


REMOVAL OF PROBATION
All Undergraduate Students:
Scholarship probation or scholarship warning will be re-
moved when a student t's grade point deficit has been re-
duced to zero.
Removal of college probation:
A student will be removed from college probation when it
is deemed by his or her college that the student is making
satisfactory academic progress in the program of study in
which he or she is engaged.


SUSPENSION
The purpose of suspension from the University for aca-
demic reasons is to remove from the University community
those students who would not ultimately meet require-
ments for graduation if they continued at their current level
of progress.
The conditions of academic suspensions are intended to
(1) select students whose performance indicates that they
will not fulfill the requirements for graduation; (2) en-
courage students to leave the University as soon a s a high
probability of failure is evident.
All undergraduate students:
Students with a grade point deficit of twenty or more in
their University of Florida work shall be suspended from the
University for one semester.
A student re-enrolling after a one semester suspension
will be on final scholarship probation. If the grade point def-
icit is twenty or more at the end of the term the student re-
enrolls, he or she will be suspended without the possibility
of re-registering except by committee action. The Summer
terms will be considered as a semester in applying this regu-
lation.





General

STUDENT ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


EARNING CREDIT
WHILE SUSPENDED
A student under any kind of academic suspension at the
University of Florida may not earn credit toward a degree at
the University of Florida by taking work in residence at an-
other institution or through extension or correspondence
courses.
However, a student who was suspended for academic rea-
sons and who has not yet earned the Associate of Arts Cer-
tificate who subsequently graduates from an accredited Flor-
ida Community College may appeal to the Petitions Com-
mittee for reinstatement. The Petitions Committee may
then, upon the recommendation of the college in which the
student wishes to enter, admit the student on academic pro-
bation to that college or school. Credits earned by such stu-
dents while under suspension from the University of Florida
may be transferred in accordance with other rules and regu-
lations of the University of Florida.

EXCLUSION
Freshman and Sophomore students:
A student classified UF who has attempted 80 semester
hours (this includes all work accepted by transfer and all
work attempted at the University of Florida) shall be in-
eligible for further registration at the University unless he or
she applies for a change of classification and is formally ad-
mitted to a degree program.
All undergraduate students:
A student may be excluded from a program of study by
the College responsible for the program if the student fails
or refuses to maintain normal academic progress. Such ex-
clusion does not prohibit the student from enrolling in other
programs or colleges if he or she meets the requirements.
Graduate students:
Graduate students may be denied further registration in
the University or in their graduate major when their progress
toward completion of their planned graduate program be-
comes unsatisfactory. Unsatisfactory progress has been de-
fined by the Graduate Council to include failure to maintain
an accumulative grade average of B in all work attempted in
the Graduate School.

DROPPING COURSES
No student will be allowed to drop a course during the
last two weeks of regularly scheduled classes without receiv-
ing failing grades. Any student seeking an exception to this
policy must petition the University Petitions Committee.


WITHDRAWALS
All undergraduate students:
It is the responsibility of each student to make every effort
to complete the full semester at the University. If any stu-
dent withdraws after the date published in the calendar, he
or she shall be assigned grades of WF (withdrew failing) in
all courses, and will be subject to the suspension and ex-
clusion regulations.
A student on scholarship probation who withdraws from
the University prior to the final date published in the calen-
dar will be continued on scholarship probation for the next
semester.
A student on University Senate Committee probation
must meet the terms of probation specified by the Commit-
tee.

ABSENCES OR
UNSATISFACTORY WORK
Students are responsible for satisfying the entire range of
academic objectives as they are defined by the instructor in


any course. For students whose names appear on the initial
class roll, absences count from the first meeting of the class.
Any student who has not attended at least one of the first
two class meetings of a course or laboratory in which he or
she is registered and has not contacted the department
which offers the course to indicate intent to remain in the
course may be dropped by the chairman of the department
which offers the course if the chairman deems this action
necessary to provide space for other students who wish to
add the course. Students dropped from courses or labora-
tories through this procedure will be notified by notice
posted in the department office. Such students may be re-
instated in the course or laboratory on a space available
basis if documented evidence excusing the absences is pres-
ented to the department chairman.
NOTE: Students must not assume that they are auto-
matically dropped if they fail to attend the first few days of
class since these actions may not necessarily be taken in all
courses and laboratories.
TWELVE-DAY RULE: No student shall absent himself or
herself from the University for more than 12 scholastic days
per semester in order to participate in athletic or in extracur-
ricular activities. (A scholastic day is any day on which regu-
lar class work is scheduled.)
The 12-day rule applies to individual members of the
group rather than to the group as a whole. Consequently, a
schedule of more than 12 days for any group should be ro-
tated so that no student is absent from the campus for more
than 12 scholastic days.
A student who has been warned for absences or un-
satisfactory work in any class should not incur additional
absences in that course, even though he or she has not been
absent from the University for 12 scholastic days. It is the re-
sponsibility of the student to see that his or her class work
and attendance are satisfactory.
Student Responsibility: Students, themselves, remain fully
responsible for satisfying the entire range of academic objec-
tives as they are defined by the instructor in any course.


POST BACCALAUREATE STUDENTS
The probation, suspension, and exclusion regulations that
apply to undergraduate students also apply to post-bacca-
laureate students.

CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS
Students will be classified by the Registrar each semester
as follows:
0. Special transient or other non-degree students who have
been permitted to register at the University of Florida will be
classified as 0.
1. A student with less than 30 hours credit will be classified
as 1.
2. A student who has earned 30 semester hours or more, but
less than 60, will be classified as 2.
3. A student who has earned 60 semester hours or more, but
less than 90, will be classified as 3.
4. A student who has earned 90 semester hours or more will
be classified as 4.
5. A student who is a candidate for a degree in a program
which normally requires 10 semesters and has earned 120
semester hours or more will be classified as 5.
6. Post-Baccalaureate students: Degree-holding students
who have been admitted to post-baccalaureate status will
be classified as 6.
7. A graduate student who is seeking a Master's degree will
be classified as 7.
8. A graduate student who has earned a Master's degree, or
has earned 36 or more hours while seeking a degree beyond
the Master's degree (but has not been admitted to doctoral
candidacy), will be classified as 8.
9. A graduate student who has been admitted to doctoral
candidacy will be classified as 9.







STUDENT ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


PETITIONS AND APPEALS
In case the operation of a student academic regulation ap-
pears to result in an undue hardship on an individual stu-
dent, he or she may petition for waiver of the regulation.
Petitions requesting permission to drop/add should be
presented to the School or College in which the student is
enrolled until the date specified in the calendar. After that
date all drop/add petitions must be presented to the Com-
mittee on Student Petitions. Exceptions to the minimum-
maximum load regulation are presented to the School or
College for a decision. Petitions approved by the School or
College must be reported to the Registrar's Office before the
action becomes official.
All other petitions should be presented to the Registrar
who will refer them to the University Senate Committee on
Student Petitions. No petition for readmission may be filed
after regular registration has started for the term.
The student seeking waiver of regulation through petition
must remember that no committee on petitions can direct
an instructor to change a student's grade, nor can the Senate
Committee require any college or school to grant a degree
by waiving any of these regulations.


ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISIONS
All actions taken under these regulations shall be reflected
by appropriate notations on the student's record.

MAINTENANCE OF
STUDENT RECORDS
The Registrar's Office maintains students' academic re-
cords. A progress report is sent to each student at the end of
the term indicating his or her grades, cumulative hours and
grade points, probationary status, If any, -and degrees
awarded, if any.


CONFIDENTIALITY OF
STUDENT RECORDS
The University of Florida assures the confidentiality of stu-
dent educational records in accordance with State Univer-
sity System rules, state statutes, and the Family Educational
Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, known as the Buckley
Amendment.
In general, a present or former student has the right to
personally review his or her own educational records for in-
formation and to determine the accuracy of these records.
Parents of dependent students, as defined by the Internal
Revenue Service, have these same rights. A photo I.D. or oth-
er equivalent documentation, or personal recognition by
custodian for record will be required before access is
granted.


AUDITING COURSES
Auditing may be approved on a space-available basis. The
approval of the instructor and Dean is required, in addition
to payment of course fees. Florida residents who are sixty
years of age or older may apply for a waiver of payment of
auditor's course fees. Procedures for auditing courses are
available at the Registrar's Office.





General

STUDENT ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


Time Shortened

Degree Opportunities
The University of Florida provides numerous op-
portunities by which students may accelerate their academic
careers and reduce the overall length of time spent in com-
pleting degree requirements. These opportunities are ex-
plained below:
1. Early Admission: The Early Admission program allows
superior students to be admitted to the University follow-
ing completion of the Junior year in high school. Applica-
tions are encouraged and will be considered on an indi-
vidual basis by the Admissions Committee. For additional
information, refer to the Admissions section of the
catalog.
2. Dual Enrollment: Dual Enrollment refers to a student
taking on-campus courses simultaneously at both the Uni-
versity of Florida and another institution. For example, a
high school student could register at the University as a
non-degree student. The credits earned prior to high
school graduation coujd then be accepted for advanced
standing placement and degree-credit when the student is
admitted to the University. For more information, high
school students may refer to the description of non-de-
gree registration within the Student Academic Regulations
section.
University of Florida students may also earn additional
credit through the dual enrollment program. For more in-
formation, refer to the discussion of dual enrollment
within the Student Academic Regulations section.
3. Increased Course Load: Capable students who register
for more than the normal 15 hours per semester may com-
plete the traditional four-year span within three years.
4. Year-Round Attendance: Students attending the Uni-
versity every semester, including Summer sessions, may
advance their graduation date by as much as two
semesters.
5. Credit by Examination: A student may participate in.a
variety of credit by examination programs in order to earn
credit toward a degree awarded by the University of Flor-
ida. Credit received from one examination program may
not be duplicated by another. The various credit by exami-
nation programs are explained below:
Advanced Placement Program: This credit by examination
opportunity is sponsored by the College Entrance Examina-
tion Board. Under this program, a student entering the Uni-
versity offers a nationally graded examination as evidence of
completion of a college level course taken in high school. If
the results of the examination meet the minimum require-
ments listed below, the student may receive University cred-
it for courses covering similar material.

College Level Examination Program (CLEP): The College
Level Examination Program is another type of credit by ex-
amination opportunity sponsored by the College Entrance
Examination Board. By presenting appropriate scores, stu-
dents may receive as many as 30 semester hours credit
toward completion of general education requirements. Their
scores on the CLEP general examinations must meet the min-
imums established by the State University System. In addi-
tion, students who plan to apply for credit must do so before
enrolling or, at the latest, prior to the end of their first term
at the University. CLEP testing is periodically available on the
campus and is administered by the Office of Instructional
Resources.
In accord with the Articulation Agreement (agreement be-
tween public community colleges and public state univer-
sities on the acceptance of credit by transfer), the University
of Florida awards credit for CLEP scores based on the follow-
ing scaled scores:

Additional credit may be awarded for satisfactory scores
on certain CLEP subject area examinations. The maximum
amount of credit that may be earned or transferred under
the CLEP program, both general and subject examinations
combined, is 45 semester hours or 67.5 quarter hours. If Eng-
lish Subject Examinations are taken it is imperative that the
essay option be taken if credit is to be received for English
Composition.
Departmental Examinations: A student may also receive
credit through the challenge of departmental course exami-
nations. For specific information, contact the departments or
colleges.
*The course numbers and semester credit values for these
tests have not been determined as of this printing. Ques-
tions should be referred to the Admissions Office.
**Students should seriously consider their decision about
taking the CLEP general examination in English. Experience
has shown that those who score below the 75th percentile
are often handicapped because they have not had college
courses in composition. However, those students who do
decide to take the CLEP English examination are required to
take the option that includes an essay examination so that
their scores will be at least partially based on a writing sam-
ple.

INFORMATION FOR

FRESHMEN AND

SOPHOMORES

(STUDENTS CLASSIFIED

UF)

Entering freshmen are classified UF. They retain this classi-
fication up to but not beyond 84 attempted credits. Students
should apply for admission to th college oof their major at
the appropriate point, usually 64 credits but earlier in the
case of some colleges. Each college specifies admission re-
quirements in its section of the catalog.



GENERAL REGULATIONS
Maximum, Minimum, and Normal Loads: The normal
course load in this college is 15 credit hours, and all students
are expected to carry a normal load. Loads which are either
lighter or heavier than normal must be justified and ap-
proved by the student's academic adviser. Loads in excess of
the College maximum of 19 hours or below the minimum of
12 hours for a full-time student require approval of the Dean
as well as the student's adviser.
Adding/Dropping/Withdrawing: Courses may be added
any time during the drop/add period if this does not in-
crease one's registration to more than 19 hours. Courses may
be dropped during the drop/add period without penalty as
long as this does not lower one's registration below 12 hours
(See Maximum, Minimum and Normal Loads above). After
the drop/add period, a course may be dropped up to the
date established as the College deadline. All drops are sub-
ject to the following restrictions:
(1) No more than two (2) such drops, after the
University's drop/add period, will be permitted in the
student's lower division career, when classified as 1UF or
2UF. A maximum of one drop will be allowed during any
semester. Students on academic warning or probation
will not be allowed to drop courses.
(2) After the deadline students may petition to drop a
course provided they can document sufficient reasons to
drop, usually hardship or medical.
(3) The course load will not be reduced below 12 hours.
(A petition to the Liberal Arts and Sciences Petition Com-
mittee must accompany such a request to drop a course
which does reduce the load below 12 hours.)
(4) Final approval to drop a course after the University's
drop/add period must be obtained from the Academic
Advisement Office, 358 Little Hall. Students must attend
all classes for which they are registered. Failure to attend
a class will not be accepted by the College as constituting
a drop; the only procedure for dropping a class is the
proper processing of a drop card which the student must
initiate.
(5) Students dropping their entire courseload must con-
tact the Office of the Registrar as this constitutes
withdrawal from the University and must be handled by
withdrawal procedures established by the Registrar and
subject to the published catalog deadlines.
Class Attendance: The University and this College recog-
nize the right of the individual professor to make attendance
mandatory and, where appropriate, and after due warning,
to suspend students from their courses with failing grades
for excessive absences.


ACADEMIC ADVISEMENT
Initial registration as a freshman for each Fall class is con-
ducted during the preceding summer months. Students and
their parents have an opportunity to attend one of several
two-day programs. Notices concerning this are mailed in the
late Spring to those students who have been admitted by the
University Admissions Office. At these Summer Registration
Programs, students and parents attend sessions relating to
career choice, student activities, helping services and course
selection. Each student meets with an academic adviser who
assists in selecting courses to take in the Fall.
Those Fall students who cannot attend a Summer Regis-
tration Program confer with academic advisers as a part of
the registration period held in the week prior to the begin-
ning of classes in the Fall. Students entering college in the
Spring or Summer semesters also have advisement con-
ferences as a part of the registration period prior to classes.
In the latter part of each semester, students register for
their next semester. Again academic advisers are available to
discuss course selection. It is expected that students shall ac-
cept responsibility for fulfilling curricular requirements as
stated in the catalog, and students who are making suc-
cessful progress are not required to see an adviser when reg-
istering. Students who are changing majors or who are not
maintaining a "C" average are urged to talk to an adviser
about course selection.
In the first few days of each semester (see deadlines in
calendar printed on early pages of this catalog) students
should review their course selection and add or drop courses
if needed to make a reasonable load for the semester in view
of past grades and current goals. If, during the semester, stu-
dents feel they must drop a course because of illness or oth-
er emergency they will find deicises academic advisers available for
discussion of the problem. Advisers are also available to help
the student define any other academic problem and find
corrective measures through the College Academic Advise-
ment Office, 358 Little Hall.

COUNSELING AND
RELATED SERVICES
In addition to assistance from academic advisers, students
may find that one or more of the following offices can be of
assistance in solving personal problems, career selection
problems or problems relating to deficiencies in academic
skills. The Student Affairs section of this catalog describes
their specific services.
1. Reading and Writing Center
2. Speech and Hearing Center
3. Student Health Service (Infirmary)
4. Career Resource Center
In addition, the Psychological and Vocational Counseling
Center provides professional psychological services to stu-
dents. These include vocational counseling, career informa-
tion, assistance with academic problems, specialized testing,
marriage counseling and personal counseling. Students and
students' spouses may apply in person for such services as
they deem necessary o ary. No charge is made. The Counseling
Center offers consultative services to University faculty and
staff who are' engaged in counseling students. Close rela-
tionships are maintained with deans, college advisers, hous-
ing personnel, the Student Health Service, and religious cen-
ters, for the purpose of expediting both counseling and con-
sultative services.


METHODS OF
COLLEGE ACCELERATION
Details concerning acceleration are provided in the part of
the catalog entitled "TIME SHORTENED DEGREE OP-
PORTUNITIES."
Students who obtain credit via CLEP or Advanced Place-
ment must do so before starting college, or, at the latest,






COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES


prior to the end of their first term at the University. Students
who obtain general education credit by examination may
take further work in the areas covered, using it for elective
credit. Some credit by examination may not serve to ac-
celerate students' programs because the specific course re-
quirements of their majors are not satisfied by general sub-
ject matter credit.
A student who chooses to attend three academic
semesters each year may accomplish the work of four aca-
demic years in three calendar years. Students may take such
Summer work at their local community college prior to com-
pletion of 64 credits. After completion of 64 credits only
work taken at accredited colleges or universities (not junior
colleges) is accepted as transfer credit. Students are urged to
discuss any such plans with a College academic adviser prior
to enrolling in courses at another school.
Unusually able students may choose to accelerate by car-
rying heavier than average course loads rather than applying
themselves more deeply to normal loads. In some majors
such students might trim one to two semesters off of the
time required for their degrees; however, they do so at con-
siderable risk to the depth and quality of their education.



SPECIAL PROGRAMS FOR UF
STUDENTS
1. SPECIAL SERVICES/PACT
The Special Services Program and the Program for Aca-
demic Counseling and Tutoring are designed to give educa-
tionally disadvantaged students who qualify for admission
to the University of Florida assistance in developing those
academic skills needed for successful academic and social
progress at the University.
The supportive services offered or arranged for by these
programs include counseling, academic advisement, tutor-
ing, study skills, reading and writing labs and special classes.
Peer Counselors are assigned to each student to assist them
in making the smooth transition to the university environ-
ment.
While admission to the federally-funded Special Services
Program is selective and only a limited number of students
can participate, the State-supported PACT serves all other
incoming students who would benefit from the academic
assistance provided through these Programs.
Both of these programs work in close coordination with
other supportive services in the planning and implementa-
tion of various programs designed to increase retention and
graduation efforts at the University of Florida.

2. ACADEMIC ENRICHMENT AND RECRUITMENT SERV-
ICES PROGRAM (AERS)
The Academic Enrichment and Recruitment Services
(AERS) Program works closely with Florida minority high
school and community college students to facilitate their
matriculation to the University of Florida. Once these stu-
dents are enrolled, the AERS Program continues helping
them by offering counseling, tutoring and advising services.
The Program coordinates existing College and University mi-
nority student assistance programs, identifies needs not
fulfilled by these programs, and develops strategies or pro-
grams to assess and meet these needs. AERS also serves as a
central source of information pertaining to academic en-
richment services offered at the University of Florida.
3. THE FRESHMAN HONORS PROGRAM
This program is limited to students entering each
freshman class who are issued special invitations to partici-
pate. These students are eligible for special honors classes.
The small size of the classes and the high quality of the stu-
dents make possible more thorough inquiry into course ma-
terials and encourage independent work. The students de-
velop their critical faculties through extensive reading, work
on research papers, and oral performance in class. Students
who successfully complete their freshman year may be
eligible to continue in honors in the sophomore year.


GENERAL EDUCATION AND THE
ASSOCIATE OF ARTS CERTIFICATES
The College of Liberal Arts and Science has the primary re-
sponsibility for the supervision of the general education pro-
gram of the University. To this end its departments provide
general education courses, and the college awards the As-
sociate of Arts Certificate of the University. All graduates of
the University must complete the general education pro-
gram and be eligible to receive the Associate of Arts Certifi-
cate prior to receiving the baccalaureate degree. Students
entering the University of Florida with fewer than 60 credits
must remain in a UF classification in the College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences at least one semester, after which they may
transfer to the college of their major when that college ap-
proves. Students who maintain a 2.0 grade point average
may remain, barring suspension, in the UF classification
beyond 64 credits to complete requirements for admissions
to the college of their major, except that no students may re-
main in this classification beyond 84 credits.
In planning each semester's program, students should ob-
tain some balance of general and special education, of sci-
ence and non-science. Undecided students should be
careful to make progress in their general education while
'trying out courses in specific majors. Typically students com-
plete the greater part of their general education in the first
two years while also taking the preprofessional courses spec-
ified for their major.
The Associate of Arts Certificate will be awarded upon
completion of:
1. 64 credits including authorized credits in general edu-
cation as indicated for the student's major.
2. An overall C average.
Application forms for the Associate of Arts Certificate are
available from the Office of the Registrar and should be re-
turned to the Office of the Registrar.


AUTHORIZED COURSES FOR
GENERAL EDUCATION
The following courses have been approved by the Council
on General Education for use in satisfying general education
requirements. In selecting from among these authorized
courses, students should keep in mind that the general edu-
cation part of their university program should serve to in-
crease their fund of.knowledge outside their major and
should broaden their intellectual horizons. The students,
therefore, must neither select courses in only one discipline
nor use courses within the scope of the major to satisfy gen-
eral education requirements. Only in strongly sequential
and crowded majors such as mathematics and science is it
permissible to use courses in the major for both purposes. In
selecting courses students should study courses descriptions
in the back of the catalog, since course titles alone give in-
sufficient information. Freshmen and sophomores are ad-
vised not to take advanced courses (3000 and 4000 level) for
which they are unprepared. Stated prerequisites must be
adhered to. Additional courses may have been added to this
authorized list by the time of publication. Students should
consult their advisors for such information.
MATHEMATICS (Minimum Credits Required) .................. 3
MGF 1113 Fundamental Mathematics
Any Mathematics course except those with a prefix of MAE

ENGLISH (Minimum Credits Required) ............................. 6
Students will be required to complete a minimum of 6
semester hours of English; ENC 1419 Expository and
Argumentative Writing (3 credits) is required of all students;
ENC 1170 Writing About Literature (3 credits) will normally
be used to complete'the English requirement, but qualified
students, with the approval of a departmental adviser, may
substitute one of the advanced literature of composition
courses listed below.

For those students who are in need of special preparation,
a special course in Developmental English (ENC 1101) will
be required. Enrollment in the course will be determined on
the basis of a Test of Standard Written English score (TSWE).
Those scoring low on this objective test will complete a writ-
ing sample which will be used as the determinant of which
students need developmental English. The course will earn
students 3 semester hours of credit but may not be used as
part of the required 6 hours of English for general education.

PLANS OF STUDY BY
COLLEGE OF MAJOR
On the following pages, specific general education re-
quirements are listed for each college and/or major. Stu-
dents are expected to follow the program of general educa-
tion specified for their particular baccalaureate goal. In other
words the particulars of students' general education depend
upon their choice of major and choice of courses within the
limits set by the major. Associate of Arts Certificates are
awarded on this basis. Preprofessional courses for students'
first two years are also listed.


Suggested course sequences are not at all rigid. Students
should adjust programs to fit their ability and background.
Academic advisers will help do this.


LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences offers degrees
with majors in thirty-one different major fields, plus an in-
- terdisciplinary major. Students who expect to obtain a de-
gree from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences should
complete the General Education Courses listed below and
elective courses, with a C or better average. Students with a
grade of D in any of these courses must complete a course in
the same area with a grade of C or better before graduation.
Students must complete the General Education Require-
ments listed below. Note that the Basic Distribution Re-
quirement must also be met prior to graduation. Many
courses will serve in satisfying both requirements. Some will
not.

M them atics ................................................................................ 3
(Botany, chemistry, computer science, economics, mathe-
matics, premedical, predental, physics, statistics, and
zoology majors should not take MGF 1113, but follow a cal-
culus sequence.)

istry.)
Students majoring in Computer Sciences should take a
physics or chemistry sequence for Physical Sciences.
Biological Sciences ..................................... ........ ............ 6
(Botany, premedical, predental, and zoology majors
should take courses in zoology and botany or Core Biology.
All students must earn at least a grade of C in one course in
biological science department: APB, BSC, BOT, MCB, ZOO.)
Preprofessional Requirements
A great amount of flexibility is available to the liberal arts
student. Certain general guidelines are:
1. Study the materials on admission, advisement, and re-
quirements for degrees, and consult with the proposed
major department as soon as you have chosen a major
field.
2. Take courses in your major.and take electives.
3. All candidates for degrees awarded by the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences are required to have at least a
minimum proficiency in some foreign language. The re-
quirement may be met by the satisfactory completion of
a beginning course sequence in one foreign language (10
semester hours). Students who plan to continue the
study of a language which they began at another institu-
tion must take a placement test before registering. If the
minimum proficiency called for above is demonstrated
by examination, this will constitute satisfaction of the
foreign language requirement. The foreign language re-
quirement should be completed as early as possible,
preferably in the freshman and sophomore years.
4. Complete one course in science having a laboratory,
prior to graduation (not necessarily prior to admission to
the upper division). Students may satisfy this require-
ment while they are in the lower division by successfully
completing a Liberal Arts and Sciences course in science
which has a laboratory. A grade of at least C is required.
Teacher Preparation in Liberal Arts and Sciences
Students may earn their degrees in the College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences and complete requirements for certifica-
tion as secondary school teachers in one or more academic
subjects by following one of the Arts and Sciences Educa-

ENGINEERING
Essential Preparation: Modern engineering education de-
mands much in the way of specific high school preparation
not required in other college programs. The beginning engi-
neering student should have a good understanding of the
basic physical sciences, a highly developed ability in mathe-
matics, and the competence to read rapidly and with com-
prehension. The College of Engineering considers that a
minimum adequate preparation follows:
In high school, the student should include the following
subjects:
Essentials Year
Elementary Algebra ........................... ............ ............... 1
Intermediate and advanced algebra .................................... 1
Plane geometry ........................................ ........... 1
Trigonometry ............................................................
Chem istry ................................................... ........................ 1.
Physics ........................................................................ .......... 1
Desirable
Additional M them atics .................................... ........... ...
Deficiencies in the above subjects may be overcome by
registering in certain foundation courses before proceeding
with parts of the regular engineering program.
A student may request transfer to the College of Engineer-
ing at any time after completing 30 credits; however, most
departments will require completion of most of the Calculus
and Physics (with Calculus) before admission.

FRESHMAN AND SOPHOMORE REQUIREMENTS
The program below is described for students whose high
school preparation meets the criteria shown above.
The minimum course load for full-time students is 12 cred-
it hours each semester, but most students take 14 to 16 credit
hours. At this rate, it takes at least 4-% years, including a
summer term, to earn a B.S. degree. It will take somewhat
longer for students who need preparation courses before en-
tering the program below.
In planning the physical science and mathematics portion
of the academic program, a freshman should talk with a Col-
lege of Engineering faculty advisor.
The requirements in Social Sciences, English, Humanities,
and (in most departments) Biological Sciences can be met
only by (a) appropriate College Level Examination Program
(CLEP) credits or (b) courses selected from the listing in the
Authorized Courses for General Education section of this
catalog. In a few cases as noted below, the College of Engi-
neering requires specific courses in fulfilling the General Ed-
ucation requirements for these subject areas.

ferred to the junior and senior years. Courses relating hu-
manities to engineering and the sciences, as listed in Catego-
ry III of the humanities subsection of the General Education
section, are especially recommended.
Note 3: All students are required to take the Chemistry
Placement Examination, given each term by the Chemistry
Department, prior to initial registration in CHM 2040 or
CHM 2042. Students who achieve an acceptably high score.
on the Examination may proceed with the chemistry course
sequence above, or with the sequence CHM 2040, 2041 and
2042L concurrently, and 2043C. Students achieving a lower
score must take the latter course sequence.
Note 4: Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Sciences
students students must take EGM 3311.
Note 5: Not required for students in Computer and Informa-
tion Sciences. Chemical Engineering requires CAP 3210 (3
credit hours) instead of COP 3212. Industrial and Systems
Engineering students also take COP 3212L if available.
Note 6: Not required for students entering Chemical, Elec-
trical, Environmental, and Nuclear Engineering programs.
Note 7: ECH 3012 and ECH 3023 required only in Chemical
Engineering program.

section titled "College of Fine Arts."
To be eligible for admission to the College of Fine Arts, the
student is required to have at least a 2.0 (C) average in the
courses listed in the appropriate curriculum for the first two
years. In addition the student must earn a 2.0 (C) average in
all preprofessional work included in-the first two years of the
program. On occasion, departments will recommend that
certain students be admitted to the College prior to the com-
pletion of all freshman and sophomore requirements. Stu-
dents should consult departmental academic advisers re-
garding the appropriate time to initiate a change of college
request. Please refer to additional information in the section
of this catalog titled "College of Fine Arts," under the head-
ing "Requirements for Admission." In addition to other

HEALTH RELATED PROFESSIONS
Students classified UF who are planning to apply for Up-
per Division status in the College of Health Related Pro-
fessions are urged to study the section of the catalog dealing
with the College and its programs in Clinical and Com-
munity Dietetics, Medical Technology, Occupational Thera-
py, and Physical Therapy. Special attention should be given
to those paragraphs on admission policies.
Limitations in available staff, faculty and facilities make it
necessary that the College reluctantly establish quotas for
the admission of students.


Each department has its own application procedures. Pre-
professional students should contact the department of
their proposed major (objective) as early as possible
(Clinical and Community Dietetics, Room N1-8 in the Medi-
cal Sciences Building, Medical Technology, Room 4111 in
Jennings Annex; Occupational Therapy, Room DG-83 in the
Dental Science Building; and Physical Therapy, Room A-92
in the Shands Teaching Hospital). The sequences of pro-
fessional courses in all programs begins only in the Fall
semester of the Junior year. The deadline for receipt of com-
pleted applications for August enrollment is the preceding
March 15.
Students who plan to earn a baccalaureate degree in the
College of Health Related Programs should elect one of the
following programs:

JOURNALISM AND
COMMUNICATIONS
Listed below are general requirements for all students
seeking a degree from the College of journalism and Com-
munications. It is expected that students will complete, in
their first two years at the university, nearly all of the Gener-
al Education Requirements and a considerable part of the
Basic Distribution and Pre-Professional Requirements. The
remainder will be completed as early as possible upon ad-
mission to the College of Journalism and Communications.
A suggested course sequence is provided for the first two
years. This can be altered to fit the student's circumstance
but students are urged not to delay their foreign language or
quantitative option.
A student must complete the General Education require-
ments and have a 2.5 average (C+) to be considered for ad-
mission to the College.
For course options other than those listed, consult "Au-
thorized Courses for General Education."

1. MMC 2100. Writing for Mass Communication. Grade
of C or higher must be earned; prerequisite for course is
a typing proficiency of at least 20 words per minute; stu-
dent may be exempted from and earn credit for course
by passing a proficiency exam in writing at UF ............ 3

3111, 3120 ..................................... 6-7
For students who elect the foreign language option, the
requirement may be met by satisfactory completion of a be,
ginning course sequence in one foreign language (10
semester hours.) Students who plan to continue the study of
a language which they began at another institution must
take a placement test before registering. If the minimum
proficiency called for above is demonstrated by examina-
tion, this will constitute satisfaction of the foreign language
requirement. Consult the appropriate language departmen-
tal office for specific examination schedules. Transfer stu-
dents having fewer than 10 semester hours of one foreign
language may complete the requirement beginning at the
point determined by a proficiency test. The student is ad-
vised to take the language proficiency examination as early
as possible after admission lest a basic course has to be re-
peated with the result that the student loses credit for prior
coursework. If the student wishes to pursue study of a dif-
ferent language than that for which credit was previously
earned, the earlier credit will stand. Intensive summer study
in French and Spanish is available for students who have
earned no previous foreign language credit in college.

LAW
The College of Law offers a program leading to the degree
of Juris Doctor. Admission is limited to those with a






Colleges

COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES


bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university
who have satisfactory undergraduate records and have at-
tained a satisfactory score on the Law School Admissions
Test. Also offered is a one-year program leading to the de-
gree of Master of Laws in Taxation. This program is open to
those students who hold the J.D. degree and who show sig-
nificant potential for success in the LL.M. program. For de-
tailed information on admission requirements, course and
programs, see the College of Law catalog.

PRELAW PROGRAMS
Admission to law school is a highly selective process. Ap-
proximately 50% of each entering class is chosen solely by
reference to a combination of the Law School Admission
Test (LSAT) score and the cumulative undergraduate grade
point average (UGPA) leading to the first bachelors degree.
In the absence of disciplinary problems, applicants with
quantitatively superior records will be automatically ad-
mitted. Approximately 40% of each class is selected from the
"hold" category which is composed of applicants with less
than superior quantitative credentials. In addition to the
quantitative credentials mentioned above, the Admissions
Committee takes into consideration the following factors:
Ascending or descending flow of effort reflected in the un-
dergraduate academic performance; the colleges, where,
and the disciplines in which, the applicant's degree was
earned; academic accomplishment subsequent to the earn-
ing of the first bachelors degree; leadership and other rele-
vant activities; letters of evaluation from undergraduate pro-
fessors and/or employers; work and maturing experiences;
and the applicant's racial, ethnic, cultural and economic
background, and geographic origin (both inside and outside
Florida).
The class entering the University of Florida Law School in
September 1980, had a mean UGPA and LSAT score of 3.51
and 652, respectively. In the absence of documentation that
a candidate was ill, or that some other unusual condition oc-
curred at one of the testing, multiple LSAT scores are aver-
aged. The LSAT should be taken at the end of the junior year.
Application to the Law School Data Assembly Service
(LSDAS) should be submitted approximately on year before
the anticipated matriculation date for law school. LSDAS ap-
plications are available in the Office of Preprofessional Edu-
cation (OPE). More information concerning preparation for
and application to law schools is contained in the Prelaw
Guide available in the OPE.
While any undergraduate specialization will prepare a
student for law school, the beginning law student must
possess the fundamental skills necessary for effective oral
and written communication. The student who lacks writing
skills should study advanced English composition. Any
course that tests one's ability to organize a body of data and
reason from it will be beneficial. Also suggested are courses
in constitutional law, English and American history, econom-
ics, political processes, and sociology. A course in basic ac-
counting principles is recommended.
Prelaw students should consult the current PreLaw Hand-
book prepared by the Law School Admission Council and
the Association of American Law Schools which is available
in most bookstores. A one credit course, IDS 1120, Introduc-
tion to the Legal Profession, is available under the S-U op-
tion.
Freshmen and transfer students planning careers in law
should register with the Office of Preprofessional Education,
353 Little Hall during their first quarter on campus. In addi-
tion to serving as a central source of information on all mat-
ters relating to prelaw advisement, the Office of Pre-
professional Education acts as a clearing-house for informa-
tion, catalogues, and LSAT Bulletins relating to prelaw prep-
aration and application procedures. The Office refers stu-
dents to academic advisers, and serves as a central office for
collecting and forwarding letters of evaluation for those ap-
plicants placed in the "hold" category. In addition the Office
of Preprofessional Education coordinates the activities of the
prelaw advisers located in the various departments and col-
leges listed below, and provides them with current data and
information needed for effective advisement.


Advisers for prelaw students are available in the College of
Business Administration, and in the Department of Econom-
ics, English, History, Philosophy, Political Science, and Soci-
ology.



MEDICINE, DENTISTRY AND
OPTOMETRY
The University of Florida, rather than having a separate,
organized premedical, predental or preoptometry degree
program, allows a preprofessional student to major in a pro-
gram offered by any department or college within the Uni-
versity. Dental, medical and optometry schools expect appli-
cants to have received a liberal education and to have per-
formed at a high level of academic accomplishment, includ-
ing work in the required science core courses listed below.
Selection for admission to these professional schools is usu-
ally based primarily on overall grade point average, (GPA),
science GPA, admission test scores, letters of evaluation of
the applicant from faculty familiar with the applicant's quali-
fications in comparison with other preprofessional students,
and interviews conducted by the professional schools' selec-
tion committees. Students from the University of Florida ad-
mitted to dental schools in 1980 averaged 3.3 in overall and
science GPA, with scores of 5 or more in the academic and
perceptual parts of the Dental Admissions Test (DAT). Uni-
versity of Florida graduates who were admitted to medical
schools in 1980 averaged 3.55 in overall and science GPA,
with an average score of 9.5 on each part of the New Medical
College Admission Test (MCAT). The average GPA for stu-
dents accepted into regional schools of optometry was 3.0 in
1980.
Freshman students planning careers in medicine, dentistry
and optometry should register with the Office of Pre-
professional Education, 353 Little Hall, during their first term
at the University, and normally should apply for admission
to the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the end of their
first term of residence. Admission may occur at a later time,
but the student may lose valuable curricula flexibility as-
sociated with the programs described below if the transfer is
greatly delayed. Students transferring from other colleges
and universities should also register with this office during
the first term of residence. In order to inform themselves
fully of requirements, procedures and other factors relating
to preprofessional preparation, students should obtain a cur-
rent copy of the PREPROFESSIONAL GUIDE prepared by
and available through the Office of Preprofessional Educa-
tion.
A one-credit course HSC 1005, Introduction to Medicine
and Dentistry, is available under the S-U option.
In addition to serving as a central source of information on
all matters pertaining to the preprofessional curricula, the
Office of Preprofessional Education acts as a clearinghouse
fo. information, catalogues and application forms relating to
medical, dental and optometry school requirements and ad-
mission procedures. The Office refers students to pre-
professional academic advisers and serves as a central office
for collecting and forwarding letters of evaluation and
certification to the schools selected by the students. A de-
scription of services for students provided by the Office of
Preprofessional Education can be found in the PRE-
PROFESSIONAL GUIDE.
The Office of Preprofessional Education coordinates the
activities of the preprofessional advisers located in various
departments and provides them with current data and pro-
cedures needed for effective advisement. Following initial
contact with this office, the student will be referred to an ad-
viser who will help plan a program and upper-division major
best suited to the student's aims and abilities. The adviser
should remain aware of the student's progress, and inform
the Office of Preprofessional Education of academic dif-
ficulties and particularly of academic excellence. In the latter
case, the adviser may recommend a student for the Junior
Honors Medical Program described below and/or for a de-
partmental honors program.







COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES


PREMEDICAL, PREDENTAL, PREOPTOMETRY
CURRICULAR OPTIONS
The preprofessional student must satisfy the following
core requirements (usually prior to application to pro-
fessional schools):
Required Core Courses:
1) A complete general chemistry sequence (terminating with
CHM 2043C, CHM 2053C, or CHM 2052C.
2) A complete organic chemistry sequence terminating with
CHM 3211L, and CHM 3211, or CHM 3216, or CHM 3219.
3) At least 8 credits in biology (usually BSC 2010C and BSC
2011C.)
4) A complete physics sequence (terminating with PHY 2054
and PHY 2054L or PHY 2049 and PHY 2049L).
5) Analytic geometry and calculus (MAC 3311 and MAC
3312.)
6) One year of college-level English
These courses will also meet the basic requirements for
schools of Chiropractic, Osteopathic, and Podiatric medi-
cine.
* In Addition: Premedical students should also take the fol-
lowing courses which are required by either the University
of South Florida or the University of Miami College of Medi-
cine.
Statistics: STA 3023
Genetics: PCB 3063, PCB 3653C, or AGR 3303
Advanced Chemistry: Either CHM 3120 and CHM 3120L,
or CHM 3400, or BCH 4313 or BCH 4203.
A list of suggested elective courses for preprofessional stu-
dents is available in the Office of Preprofessional Education.
The list includes courses in Biochemistry, Microbiology and
Zoology which should be taken in addition to the required
courses.
The usual timetable for application to professional school
is:
1) Complete the preprofessional core requirements within
the first three years of college, preferably by the summer of
the year preceding the year of graduation.
2) Apply for and take the admission test (DAT, MCAT, or
OCAT), preferably in the spring of the year preceding the
year of graduation. Delay in taking the test until the fall may
reduce chances of admission.
3) Have letters of evaluation collected in a confidential file
by the Office of Preprofessional Education (see procedure
described in services to Preprofessional Students in the PRE-
PROFESSIONAL GUIDE available at the Office of Pre-
professional Education) during the third year of college.
4) Submit completed applications (including admission test
scores and letters of evaluation) to the professional schools
by the end of August or the first part of September (at the
latest) of the year preceding the year of graduation. Delay in
completion of applications beyond that date may reduce
chances of admission.
5) Maintain a high academic performance and send tran-
scripts of subsequent terms to professional schools at which
your application is being considered.
6) Interviews for applicants being seriously considered are
conducted in the fall and winter by professional schools.
7) Notices of acceptance or rejection are usually received by
the spring of the following year although some acceptance
may be offered as late as the week before classes start.
Besides meeting the preprofessional course requirements,
students are strongly recommended to gain some experi-
ence in the health care delivery environment of their career
choice. Such experience may be obtained by participation in
the programs of the Preprofessional Honor Society Alpha
Epsilon Delta, The Minority Preprofessional Association -
MPA, and the Preprofessional Service Organization PSO
at the University of Florida. More details about these pro-
grams and applications are available at the Office of Pre-
professional Education.

STANDARD PROGRAM FOR YEAR 1
Many students reach a decision to prepare for a career in
medicine or dentistry during or after one year of college.


Such students will usually have to complete requirements at
a more accelerated rate if they wish to graduate on schedule.
The degree of acceleration should be discussed with a pre-
professional adviser in their major department.
Any sequence of general chemistry is acceptable. The
basis for choice among CHM 2040, 2040C, 2051C (Honors) is
outlined in the catalog section preceding chemistry course
listings and in the Preprofessional Guide. MAC 3311, 3312,
and STA 3032 should be completed this year. American In-
stitutions and English requirements should be completed by
taking the appropriate courses or via College Level Examina-
tion Program (CLEP) credit. Liberal arts elective courses in-
cluding English courses, and a foreign language, are among
options for students who have completed Social Sciences
and English by CLEP credit. Those having a background in
foreign language prior to entering the University may satisfy
all or part of the foreign language requirement by taking a
placement examination, which is offered several times dur-
ing the year by the foreign language departments.
STANDARD PROGRAM FOR YEAR 2
If a student has not finished general chemistry, it should
be completed in this year. Organic chemistry should be
begun and completed this year. CHM 3200 is not acceptable.
Qualified students are advised to consider application to the
honors organic chemistry sequence, CHM 3215 and 3216.
The intensive organic chemistry course. CHM 3219 offered in
the summer term could be used to accelerate completion of
the preprofessional requirements. Two terms of biology,
usually BSC 2010C-2011C should be completed by the end of
this year. BCH 3613 may be elected during the spring of the
second year as an introduction to human molecular biology
and biochemistry. Students should also complete the hu-
manities requirements by coursework unless they have pre-
vious CLEP credit. Students with available time might con-
sider beginning either physics or foreign language sequence
during this year. Those who have a background in a foreign
language prior to entering the University of Florida should
refer to the previous section on "The Foreign Language Re-
quirement."
Second year premedical students who have a 3.5 average
or higher and who have completed the above core require-
ments may want to apply for admission to the junior Honors
Medical Program. This program allows early acceptance to
the University of Florida College of Medicine and partici-
pation in third-year medical school seminars. Interested stu-
dents should contact the Assistant Dean for Preprofessional
Education in the College of Medicine (128 Medical Sciences
Building). Applications for this program are accepted early in
the Spring Semester, and final selection is made during the
Summer Semester of the sophomore year.
STANDARD PROGRAM FOR YEARS 3 AND 4
During their third year, students generally complete phys-
ics and any preprofessional core requirements as yet un-
filled. During year 3 or 4 the foreign language requirement
must be completed if not completed prior to this time.
The remainder of years 3 and 4 is devoted to completion
of a departmental major and elective courses in science and
other areas. Professional schools attach no bias toward any
particular major. Thus, although most students major in one
of the sciences, It is equally possible and desirable to major
in some other area. In general, the better the student's re-
cord during the first two years, the greater the latitude that
student will have in a choice of major. Since most students
do major in one of the sciences, the various common pre-
professional science options are outlined below.
1) Chemistry Major: Analytical chemistry CHM 3120-
CHM 3120L is required. A student must take Analytical
Chemistry II CHM 4131, CHM 4131L, Inorganic Chemistry
CHM 3610 and the physical chemistry sequence CHM
4410-4411L (MAP 3302 is a co-requisite). Students in-
terested in a research experience should consider taking
CHM 4905 in their last year.
2) Microbiology and Cell Science Major: Students in-
terested in a microbiology major should schedule MCB
3020 and MCB 3020L after at least one term of organic
chemistry. In addition to MCB 3020-MCB 3020L, the fol-
lowing courses constitute the remainder of the major





Colleges

COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES


program: PCB 3136, BCH 4313, and 14 credits selected
from departmental courses offered in the 4000 series. In
sbme cases which are determined by the microbiology
undergraduate coordinator, BCH 4203 may be sub-
stituted for MCB 4413. Students interested in under-
graduate research projects as well as departmental hon-
ors should discuss MCB 4905 with the undergraduate co-
ordinator. In addition, analytical chemistry, CHM 3120-
CHM 3120L, is a required background course for this ma-
jor.
3) Zoology Major: (gl) A preprofessional zoology major
must take PCB 3063, PBC 3653C and at least one course
from each of the following four sets:
a. ZOO 3303C or ZOO 3203C
b. ZOO 3703C or ZOO 3605C
c. PCB 4044C or PCB 4675
d. ZOO 4755C or PCB 4745C[p]
(Suggested course selections for preprofessional students
,are: a) ZOO 3303C, b) ZOO 3703C, c) PCB 4675, and d)
either PCB 4745C or ZOO 4755C.)
At this point, the student will have 23 major credits.
Zoology courses in physiology, PCB 4745C or histology, ZOO
4755C are appropriate electives to complete the major re-
quirements of 25 credits in zoology. The student should also
be aware of the possibility of research.
4) Biochemistry Major: Although an undergraduate major
is not currently available, the undergraduate
biochemistry program offers a comprehensive series of
courses providing a concentration in biochemistry and
molecular biology. Courses in the sequence BCH 3613,
4313, 4203, 5055L and PCB 4535 may supplement or sub-
stitute for comparable courses in related major programs.
Students desiring research experience in this area should
consider BCH 4905. At some professional schools stu-
dents having taken a biochemistry courses as under-
graduates may exempt themselves from the biochemistry
taught as part of the basic medical science sequence.
5) Interdisciplinary Major: This major, described
elsewhere in the undergraduate catalog is available for
above average preprofessional students.
Transfer Students: Transfer students who have received
credit for the first two years of college at another institution
should have no difficulty in adapting themselves to the
above format with the help of an adviser. Since relatively
heavy weight is placed by professional schools upon the per-
formance of transfer students in their third year, such stu-
dents should plan on taking at least 20 hours in science dur-
ing the first two or three terms at the University of Florida.
Those transfer students who have completed all of the basic
preprofessional course requirements should consider taking
additional courses in either chemistry, zoology, micro-
biology, biochemistry, physics, mathematics or statistics. By
doing well in courses which are taken by many pre-
professional students at the Universiy of Florida, transfer
students can enhance their academic records and provide
admission committees with a basis of comparison of their
academic abilities with other applicants.
Choice of Electives: Professional schools do not appear to
have any significant bias toward elective courses chosen by
students. These schools, in fact, look with favor upon stu-
dents who have shown broad interests and educational de-
velopment during their college career. Commonly selected
science electives include senior research, CHM 3120C-3120L,
BCH 3613, BCH 4313 BCH 4203, MCB 3020- 3020L, ZOO
3703C, ZOO 4755C, PCB 3253-3253L and PCB 4745C. Stu-
dents who have displayed academic weakness in any of the
required preprofessional core course areas (especially chem-
istry or biology) generally are advised to offset such weak-
nesses by stronger performances at a more advanced level. It
should be reemphasized that students applying to the Uni-
versity Miami School of Medicine, to the University of South
Florida College of Medicine and to Emory Medical and Den-
tal Schools should complete additional advanced courses as
listed above before graduating regardless of their major.
Clep Credit: It is generally agreed that receipt of CLEP credit
does not imply the equivalent of educational experience re-
ceived in any university-level course. You should plan on


taking courses in every area in which you have been granted
CLEP credit, especially in English. Unless you are advised
otherwise, you should begin with introductory level courses,
or courses at the 2000 level for which you are certain that
you possess the prerequisites.
Post-baccalaureate undergraduate work: Students who have
received a BS or BA degree and have not qualified for pro-
fessional school because of a lack of quality and/or quantity
of preprofessional work may want to consider additional
work at the undergraduate level to make up these deficien-
cies. Students interested in this possibility should consult
the Director of the Office of Preprofessional Education, 353
Little Hall.

General Statement
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences was formed Sep-
tember 1, 1978, by the merger of the College of Arts and Sci-
ences and University College. It is the gateway college for
entering freshmen and other students with fewer than 64
credits, providing for their academic advisement and their
general education. It also provides advanced education lead-
ing toward degrees in a variety of disciplinary and cross-dis-
ciplinary fields in arts and sciences.
Culturally and historically the programs of the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences represent the core of all higher ed-
ucation. The humanities, the social sciences, the natural and
biological sciences all are studied in the College and all
contribute to the richness of its program.
The major aim of the College is to impart the ideas, con-
cepts, motivations, and skills of a liberal education to stu-
dents to enable them to assume leadership positions in soci-
ety. Intellectual inquiry, the intelligent evaluation of ideas,
and an appreciation of the dominant thought patterns of the
world are the tools the College seeks to impart to its stu-
dents. Upon these fundamentals, they will be enabled to
build rewarding lives. Moreover, they will also acquire that
knowledge necessary to launch a successful career through
further study in the graduate and professional colleges.
The LS classification applies to students pursuing Liberal
Arts and Sciences degrees. Most such students are in their
junior or senior years but, as noted above, freshmen and
sophomores may be approved for the LS classification. Qual-
ified students who are admitted by transfer from other in-
stitutions with 64 or more credits are classified LS.

REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION TO
THE LS CLASSIFICATION
The University of Florida and the College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences encourage applications of qualified students
from all cultural, racial, religious, and ethnic groups. Listed
below are the specific requirements for admission to this col-
lege. It should be understood, however, that minimum re-
quirements are given and that admission to this college is a
selective process. The satisfaction of minimum requirements
does not automatically guarantee admission. A student's to-
tal record including educational objective, pattern of
courses previously completed, quality of previous academic
record, and test data will all be considered in evaluating an
application for admission. Priority in admission will be given
to those applicants whose potential on the basis of their to-
tal record indicates the greatest likelihood of success in the
program requested.
Students classified UF: admission to the LS classification is
normally approved if the student has earned acceptable col-
lege credit with an overall average of 2.0 or higher on all col-
lege level work attempted. Certain majors require higher av-
erages, however. Students should contact their major de-
partment concerning this. Students should, however, be firm
about their major before applying for the LS classification.
Transfer Students: To be eligible or admission to the Col-
lege of Liberal Arts and Sciences, with an LS classification, a
transfer student must satisfy the minimum requirements for
admission to an Upper Division College that are set forth in
the ADMISSIONS Section of this catalog.
A. Students attending four year colleges, who wish to
transfer after two years, should follow a program of gener-
al education and preprofessional courses as outlined un-
der Requirements for,Degree.
B. Junior and Community College transfer students should:
1. Complete a university transfer program at the lower
division college.
2. Indicate an intended major field of concentration, using
Sthe exact terminology as on the list of majors at the begin-
ning of the Liberal Arts and Sciences section of this
catalog.







COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES


3. If pre-medical, pre-optometry, pre-dental, pre-veter-
inary, or if planning to major in mathematics, biological or
physical sciences; be certain to substitute subject-matter
courses in mathematics, botany, zoology, chemistry or
physics for survey courses in those areas. See Medicine,
Dentistry and Optometry programs listed in earlier pages.
4. Attempt to satisfy the foreign language requirement of
the College prior to transfer.. All candidates for degrees
awarded by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences are re-
quired to have at least a minimum proficiency in some for-
eign language. The requirement may be met by the satis-
factory completion of a beginning course sequence in one
foreign language (10 semester hours). Students who plan
to continue the study of a language which they began at
another institution must take a placement test before reg-
istering. If the minimum proficiency called for above is
demonstrated by examination, this will constitute satisfac-
tion of the foreign language requirement. Consult the ap-
propriate language departmental office for specific exami-
nation schedules. Transfer students having fewer than 10
semester hours of one foreign language may complete the
requirement beginning at the point determined by a pro-
ficiency test. The student is advised to take the language
proficiency examination as early as possible after admis-
sion lest a basic course has to be repeated with the result
that the student loses credit for prior coursework. If the
student wishes to pursue study of a different language
than that for which credit was previously earned, the
earlier credit will stand. Intensive summer study in French
and Spanish is available for students who have earned no
previous foreign language credit in college.
5. Complete as many sequential courses as possible prior
to transfer, especially the foreign language sequence (see
item 4 above). Some courses are cumulative and represent
a direct continuation of work done in a previous course. It
is difficult to guarantee complete articulation of such
courses when they are offered in a different institution.
6. Choose general education courses to satisfy the basic
distribution requirement (See Section B, under Require-
ments for Degrees), and choose a variety of elective
courses as needed to complete 64 semester hours of cred-
it. (Vocational-technical courses will not count as transfer
credit.)
7. Earn a GPA of 2.0 or better in all courses attempted. No
course in which a grade of less than 2.0 has been earned
may be used to satisfy any basic or major requirements in
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
8. Wait until after transfer to the University to take courses
in professional education if the student expects to work
toward certification to teach.
Special post-baccalaureate student (6LS): A student who
has received a baccalaureate degree but who is not seeking
admission to the Graduate School may, under certain condi-
tions, be admitted as a special student (6LS). The applicant
must meet deadlines printed in the University Calendar. The
College will seek the approval of the appropriate academic
officer: the chairperson of the department specified by the
student, the graduate coordinator of the department, or the
Director of Preprofessional Education. Such approval must
be granted for admission. Students making application for
admission under this category are advised that they must de-
clare a specific major field of study.
Graduate student: The general section of this catalog deal-
ing with admission describes certain minimum requirements
for admission of graduate students to the University. Addi-
tional details for admission are given in the Graduate School
catalog.

ADVISEMENT OF STUDENTS
CLASSIFIED LS
Upon admission to the LS classification, the student
should contact the Academic Advisement Office, 358 Little
Hall for referral to a departmental academic adviser. Stu-


dents who have received the LS classification are allowed
considerable freedom in planning their programs, within the
framework of College and departmental requirements. The
faculty member's role is primarily to give advice. The student
assumes the major responsibility for fulfilling college and
departmental degree requirements. IGNORANCE OF A
RULE DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A BASIS FOR WAIVING
THAT RULE.
Students are urged to review the information presented in
the Liberal Arts and Sciences section of the catalog each
term when planning their programs. Failure to read, under-
stand, and follow the guidelines presented here could cause
significant hardship and delays in their academic progress.
Clarification of college requirements is available in the Aca-
demic Advisement Office, 358 Little Hall.
Pre-Professional Advisement is available through 353 Little
Hall for Pre-medical, Pre-dental, Pre-optometry and Pre-law
students.


HONORS PROGRAMS FOR JUNIORS
AND SENIORS
Consistent with its view that higher education should re-
sult in the development of each student as an intellectual in-
dividual, this college gives its students a wide selection of
degree programs with electives. In addition the College of-
fers a variety of opportunities for independent and seminar
honors work to those of its undergraduates who have dem-
onstrated appropriate qualifications.
Superior students should take initiative in planning un-
dergraduate and graduate programs. They should consult
advisers about departmental and high honors. For further in-
formation, contact Dr. H.j. Doherty in 330 Little Hall.,
DEAN'S LIST
The Dean's List regularly recognizes outstanding academic
achievement. Inclusion on the list is awarded to students
who maintain a grade point average of 3.5 or higher on rea-
sonable course loads, a minimum of 12 hours per semester
for two consecutive terms of an academic year (Fall and
Spring). This award is not granted for courses taken under
the S-U option or for which a grade of "I", "X", or "H" has
been submitted.
PHI BETA KAPPA
Phi Beta Kappa is an honorary scholastic society for stu-
dents of high intellectual ability with a broad liberal educa-
tion. The first chapter was founded in 1776 at the College of
William and Mary. The UF chapter was established in 1938.
Election is by invitation, not application.
Not over 10 percent are chosen from those ranking aca-
demically in the upper 15 percent of the senior class in the
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences who also meet the fol-
lowing criteria: at least 46 semester hours of courses in the
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences; completion of the for-
eign language requirement; a broad distribution of letter-
graded upper division electives outside the major subject
(notably, in the humanities, social sciences, mathematics,
and the physical and biological sciences); and superior aca-
demic performance in lower and upper division generally, as
well as in the major field.
Students in colleges other than Liberal Arts and Sciences
who meet these requirements may be recommended in writ-
ing by the dean of their college. The society also considers a
selected number of graduate students in Liberal Arts and
Sciences who have earned the Ph.D. during the previous
year.
For further information, contact Dr. William C. Childers,
4221 GPA.

GENERAL REGULATIONS
Maximum, Minimum and Normal Loads: The normal
course load in this College is 15 credit hours, and all students
are expected to carry a normal load. Loads which are either





Colleges

COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES


lighter or heavier than normal must be justified and ap-
proved by the student's academic adviser. Loads in excess of
the College maximum of 19 hours or below the University
minimum of 12 hours for a full-time student require ap-
proval of the Dean as well as the student's adviser.
Adding/Dropping/Withdrawing: Courses may be added
anytime during the drop/add period if this does not increase
one's registration to more than 19 hours. Courses may be
dropped during the drop/add period without penalty as
long as this does not lower one's registration below 12 hours
(See Maximum, Minimum and Normal Loads above). After
the drop/add period, a course may be dropped up to the
date established as the College deadline. All drops are sub-
ject to the following restrictions:
(1) No more than two (2) such drops, after the
University's drop/add period will be permitted in the
student's upper division career. A maximum of one drop
will be allowed during any semester. Students on aca-
demic warning or probation will not be allowed to drop
courses.
(2) After the deadline, students may petition to drop a
course provided they can document sufficient reasons to
drop, usually hardship or medical.
(3) The course load will not be reduced below 12 hours.
(A petition to the Liberal Arts and Sciences Petition Com-
mittee must accompany the request to drop a course
when the outcome reduces the load below 12 hours.)
(4) Final approval to drop a course after the University's
drop/add period must be obtained from the Academic
Advisement Office, 358 Little Hall. Students must attend
all classes for which they are registered. Failure to attend
a class will not be accepted by the College as constituting
a drop; the only procedure for dropping a class is the
proper processing of a drop card which the student must
initiate.
(5) Students dropping their entire course load must con-
tact the Office of the Registrar, as this constitutes
withdrawal from the University and must be handled by
withdrawal procedures established by the Registrar and
subject to the published catalog deadlines.
Student Petitions: A student who feels that the College
regulations work a particular hardship or injustice may peti-
tion for waiver of the regulation involved. Information on
procedure in submitting such petitions is available in the Ac-
ademic Advisement Office, Room 358, Little Hall.
Registration in Graduate Courses: In accordance with the
rules of the Graduate School, undergraduate students may
not register in graduate courses (5000 level and above) with-
out permission of the College Dean. This permission is nor-
mally given only to students in their senior year who are car-
rying not more than 17 hours and have an average of at least
2.8. Students must present written approval from both the
instructor of the course and the graduate coordinator of the
department offering the course.
Registration beyond normal period for completion of de-
gree: Any student who has completed all of the academic re-
quirements for the baccalaureate degree but has not ob-
tained the degree will be denied further registration in the
College. A student who has completed more than 15 hours
beyond the normal minimum requirement for his degree
without receiving the degree must obtain permission of the
Dean for further registration.
Class Attendance: The University and this College recog-
nizes the right of the individual professor to make atten-
dance mandatory and, where appropriate, and after due
warning, to suspend students from those courses with failing
grades for excessive absences.


REQUIREMENTS FOR DEGREES
The program which leads to the degrees Bachelor of Arts
or Bachelor of Science are alike in all basic requirements.


The degree Bachelor of Arts will be conferred upon those
who fulfill the requirements for degrees with majors in one
of the fields of American Studies, Anthropology, Art, Asian
Studies, Classics, Criminal justice, Economics, English,
French, German, History, Music, Philosophy, Political Sci-
ence, Religion, Russian, Sociology, Spanish, Speech, and
Theatre.
The degree Bachelor of Science will be conferred upon
those who fulfill the requirements for degrees with majors in
one of the fields of Astronomy, Botany, Chemistry, Com-
puter and Information Science, Microbiology, Physics, and
Zoology.
The degree of Bachelor of Arts or Science will be con-
ferred upon those students who fulfill the requirements for
the degree with a major in Geography, Geology, Mathemat-
ics, Psychology, Statistics, or an Individual Interdisciplinary
Program. Students should consult the undergraduate coordi-
nator in their major department to discuss the appropriate
curriculum in the event they elect the Bachelor of Science
option for the major. In no instance will the College confer
two Bachelor of Arts degrees, or two Bachelor of Science de-
grees on the same student. The requirements for graduation
with either of these degrees are listed below.
Student Responsibility: Students must assume full respon-
sibility for registering for the proper courses and loads and or
fulfilling all degree requirements. Students are responsible
for completing all courses for which they are registered at
the end of the drop/add period.
Seniors must file formal application for a degree in the Of-
fice of the Registrar early in the semester in which they ex-
pect to receive the degree. The official calendar shows the
latest date on which this can be done.
Additionally, seniors who plan to graduate should have
their academic file reviewed in the College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences Office one to two semesters prior to their grad-
uation. In their final semester seniors should have corrected
all "I", "X" and "H" grades to letter grades by no later than
the end of the fifth week. Seniors are themselves responsible
for seeing that all grade changes are properly submitted and
recorded by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Office
by the above deadline.
A. CREDIT REQUIREMENTS AND RESTRICTIONS
A minimum of 124 quarter hours credit (normally 64 in the
lower division and 60 while classified LS) with an overall av-
erage of "C" or better in all work transferred to or completed
in the College and an overall average of "C" in all work at-
tempted at the University of Florida. NOTE: Some credits
may not be applicable toward the minimum degree require-
ments of this College. For example, no credit earned through
courses in the Career Development Program or through the
College Level Examination Program may be applied towards
satisfaction of degree requirements once a student has
earned 64 quarter credits at any college.
The degree program must include the components listed
below. Mere accumulation of credit hours will not be suffi-
cient for graduation from this College.
At the beginning of this section is a list of subject matter
fields in which credit for a degree in Liberal Arts and Sci-
ences,is granted. The primary objective of this College is to
provide its students with a liberal education and it is the
conviction of the faculty that the fields listed are in general
those which are conducive to a liberal education. However,
a student may select for upper division elective credit up to
9 hours of work from other colleges within the University.
No credit will be given for coursework taken outside the
College beyond the 9 hours limit except for the following
special cases.

Special Cases:
1. The minimum total of 124 hours required for the
bachelor's degree may include not more than 16 hours credit
in education provided the student follows an approved pro-
gram and becomes NCATE Certified. If a student is in a
certification program, therefore, the only hours outside the
college which could apply would be the 16 hours of educa-
tion.







COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES


2. No more than 6 hours credit of ensemble music may be
included in the minimum total of 124 hours. (This does not
apply to Music majors).
3. In the first 64 hours of course work presented for admis-
sion to Liberal Arts and Sciences a student may receive credit
for his degree for not more than 26 hours of work offered in
other upper division colleges at the University of Florida.
4. An approved interdisciplinary major may include more
than 9 hours of course work in another College.
5. A preprofessional degree in Speech Pathology and
Audiology may include up to 18 hours outside the College,
as determined by the student's departmental advisor.
B. GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS
Students are expected to complete general education re-
quirements and the courses authorized for general educa-
tion are listed on earlier pages. Advanced students may sub-
stitute other suitable courses if approved by a College Ad-
viser. The College awards the Associate of Arts Certificate to
qualified applicants to certify completion of general educa-
tion. General education credit may also be used in satisfac-
tion of the following Basic Distribution' requirements.
C. DISTRIBUTION REQUIREMENTS
These requirements build upon the experiences, intellec-
tual development, and insights acquired through the Gener-
al Education program. They are designed to provide the lib-
erally educated person with an understanding and apprecia-
tion of the human condition, the evolution of civilization
and its institutions, and the principles of science and their
impact on man and society.
General education course credits can be applied toward
these requirements. Students must earn a grade of C or bet-
ter in each of these courses. They may not be taken under
the S-U option. One course cannot be used to complete re-
quirements in two different areas. No more than 6 credits
can be taken in History toward completion of distribution
requirements.
These requirements include:
6 hours credit in English (At least one course must be a
composition course CLEP credit cannot be used to
complete the composition requirement.)
9 hours credit in Humanities (no more than 6 credits in one
department may be counted.)
9 hours credit in the Social and Behavioral Sciences (No
more than 6-credits in one department may be counted.)
6 hours credit in Mathematics, Statistics, or Computer and
Information Sciences (At least one course must be in
Mathematics.)
12 hours credit in the Natural Sciences (At least two courses
must be in the Biological Sciences and at least two
courses in the Physical Sciences, including a minimum of
one laboratory course.)
TOTAL 42 credits
The following courses may be taken to complete the dis-
tribution requirements. This list does not replace general ed-
ucation requirements.
English: any course in English except LIS 2001, LIS 2100,
and ENG 2540. Beginning students are normally ex-
pected to complete ENG 1419 and ENC 1170, which are
designed for freshmen. Qualified students, however,
may substitute more advanced courses (2000 level) with
the approval of a departmental adviser. Prerequisite to
all 3000- and 4000-level courses are 6 hours of English or
permission of the instructor.
Humanities: ASN 2001, any course in Classics, English Lit-
erature (English Literature courses at the 2000, 3000, and
4000 levels may be used to fulfill the Humanities re-
quirement.), History, Humanities, LIN 3010, LIN 3340,

4023C, DEP 4704, PSC 2191L. Corequisites must be
adhered to.
NOTE: Some lab courses may not be taken without co-
requisite courses.
D. FOREIGN LANGUAGE REQUIREMENT
All candidates for degrees awarded by the College of Lib-
eral Arts and Sciences.are required to have at least a mini-
mum proficiency in some foreign language. The require-
ment may be met by the satisfactory completion of a begin-
ning course sequence in one foreign language (10 semester
hours). Students who plan to continue the study of a lan-
guage which they began at another institution must take a
placement test before registering. If the minimum profi-
ciency called for above is demonstrated by examination, this
will constitute satisfaction of the foreign language require-
ment. Consult the appropriate language departmental office
for specific examination schedules. Transfer students having
fewer than'10 semester hours of one foreign language may
complete the requirement beginning at the point de-
termined by a proficiency test. The student is advised to take
the language proficiency examination as early as possible af-
ter admission lest a basic course has to be repeated with the
result that the student loses credit for prior coursework. If
the student wishes to pursue study of a different language
than that for which credit was previously earned, the earlier
credit will stand. Intensive summer study in French and
Spanish is available for students who have earned no pre-
vious'foreign language credit in college.
E. ELECTIVE REQUIREMENT
Of the minimum of 124 quarter hours required for a
bachelor's degree in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences,
64 are normally earned before the student is admitted to the
LS classification. At least 30 of the hours remaining after the
first 64 must be electives. An "elective" is defined as any
course earned outside of the student's major department.
For instance, a foreign language is an elective to all LS stu-
dents except Foreign Language majors. Twenty-one (21) of
these hours must be in Liberal Arts and Sciences courses;
nine (9) may be taken in other colleges. However, no more
than 9 semester hours outside the College of Liberal Arts and
.Sciences will be counted toward the 124 minimum (except
in special cases as noted above.)
F. RESIDENCE REQUIREMENT
The last thirty hours to be applied toward a degree must
be completed in residence in the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences. In special cases this requirement may be waived,
but in no case may the total credits earned by extension or
correspondence exceed twelve of the last thirty-six credits
applied toward the degree.
G. THE MAJOR
1. Departmental Majors: A departmental major consists of
a concentration of course work in a specific department.
On the application for admission the student must in-
dicate an intended major, using the exact terminology as
on the list of majors in the Liberal Arts and Sciences sec-
tion ot this catalog. The number of credit hours required





Colleges

COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES


for a major will vary from department to department, but
in no case may the number of hours required be fewer
than 24 hours or more than 40 hours in the major depart-
ment. The student should check the major requirements
in the section of the catalog which lists the courses offered
by the major department. Some departments may require
subsidiary courses from subject-matter fields other than
the major. No courses in the major in which the grade
earned is below "C" will be counted toward the fulfill-
ment of the minimum major requirement nor may they be
taken under the S-U grading option. Work in the major
taken in the freshman or sophomore years or transferred
to the University from another institution is included in
evaluating the student's record for this requirement. How-
ever, all transfer credit in the major must be approved by
the major department and any such credit which is not ap-
proved as a part of the major will not apply towards the to-
tal credit requirement for the degree.

2. Interdisciplinary Majors: As alternatives to the departmen-
tal major, the College offers two kinds of interdisciplinary
majors;
a. The interdisciplinary programs in American Studies,
Asian Studies, and Criminal Justice have been fully
planned by the cooperating departments and adopted
by the College. For a description of each of these pro-
grams, see the appropriate heading under the
alphabetical "Course Descriptions" section of this
catalog.
b. An individual interdisciplinary program may be de-
signed and initiated by a student whose academic
and/or professional goals are not met by a departmental
major. At least two faculty members from different de-
partments must be consulted in planning the program,
and they must also agree to supervise the program to
completion. At least one of the departments must be in
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Each individual
interdisciplinary program must be approved by the Col-
lege Committee on Interdisciplinary Studies, and shall
include at least 24 credit hours of related course work
taken in two or more departments. All other College de-
gree requirements (e.g., foreign language, general distri-
bution, electives, etc.) must be met, except that course
work taken in another college may be permitted to ex-
ceed 9 credit hours if such is required by an approved
program. The student must also take at least 6 credit
hours of IDS-4906 (or equivalent courses) under the
direction of one or both of the supervisory faculty mem-
bers, and produce a senior thesis.
Baccalaureate honors or high honors are available to indi-
vidual interdisciplinary majors. Requirements are the same
as for departmental majors, with the additional provision
that honors must be recommended by two members of the
student's supervisory committee (including the principal su-
pervisor), who will affirm that the student conducted an in-
dividual project in IDS-4906 (or equivalent) of high quality
and reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of the program.
Planning for an individual interdisciplinary program
should be initiated no later than the beginning of the junior
year. late applications will result in students being denied
acceptance into the program. Students interested in pursu-
ing an interdisciplinary major should contact Associate Dean
F. Eugene Dunnam in the College Office, Room 2121, GPA.
The following are examples of interdisciplinary programs
which have been developed as a result of recent student in-
terest:
Atmospheric Sciences (Meteorology)
Undergraduate students in the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences may be approved to develop an individualized in-
terdisciplinary major in Atmospheric Sciences (or Meteorol-
ogy) leading to the B.S. degree. The program is designed to
provide the student with a.background in the atmospheric
sciences and their applications to such problems as air pollu-
tion, economic impact of weather on agriculture, influences
of anthropogenic chemical releases on weather, atmospheric
radiation, transmission of polar radiation through the atmo-
sphere, and soil-water-air interfaces. The curriculum in-


cludes courses from such departments as Geography, Physi-
cal Sciences, Physics and Astronomy, Environmental Engi-
neering Sciences, Fruit Crops, Mechanical Engineering, Agri-
cultural Engineering, and Chemical Engineering.
A Minor in Atmospheric Sciences suited to the science or
engineering major desiring a basic introduction to the study
of the atmosphere is available.
A Non-Technical Minor in Atmospheric Science is also
available. The program is designed to meet the increasing
need for a fundamental understanding of environmental
phenomena in many non-technical professions.
For further information, consult Dr. Karl Taylor, 309 Space
Sciences Research Building.
Biochemical Sciences
Undergraduate students interested in advanced work in
biochemistry may apply for acceptance into the individual
interdisciplinary major program of Biochemical Sciences in
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The program offers
considerable breadth by virtue of its flexibility and the broad
range of required and elective courses. Graduates of this
program would have excellent backgrounds for research in a
variety of the basic medical sciences, and would be well
qualified for a variety of graduate and medical school pro-
grams.
Program applicants are required to have a good back-
ground in basic chemistry and zoology courses. Advanced
level work includes 1) course work required by both the
Biochemistry Department; 2) research in biochemistry; 3)
other elective courses to be selected from offerings by the
Departments of Biochemistry, Botany, Chemistry, Micro-
biology, Neuroscience, Psychology, and Zoology.
For further information about the biochemistry program
consult Dr. R. J. Mann, 343 MSB.
Film Studies
While the University of Florida does not offer an under-
graduate degree in film or cinema arts, an individual in-
terdisciplinary major in Film Studies is offered through the
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the Department of
Broadcasting in the College of Journalism and Communica-
tions. This interdisciplinary major provides a background in
film history, aesthetics, theory, and criticism, and gives train-
ing and "hands on" experience in film production. Students
usually begin this major at the start of their junior year in the
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
Students interested in the program may obtain further in-
formation from a member of the Film Studies faculty. A list
of Film Studies faculty members and their office addresses is
available from the Department of English, 4008 General
Purpose Building A.
Linguistics
An individualized major in Linguistics may be approved
for undergraduate students in the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences. This program is designed to provide the student
with a background in the study of language, dialects, com-
mrunication, and particular languages. It will prepare the stu-
dent for graduate work in linguistics or the study of lan-
guages, the teaching of English as a foreign language, and
advanced work in related areas. The curriculum includes cer-
tain required core courses and optional courses from a varie-
ty of fields.
Interested students should consult Dr. Paul Kotey, Room
107, Grinter Hall.
Neurobiological Sciences
An individual interdisciplinary major in Neurobiological
Sciences may be developed by academically strong under-
graduate students in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
through the faculty of the Center for Neurobiological Sci-
ences. The program is intended to provide the student with
a fundamental and broad-based academic foundation for
graduate and professional programs and related areas.
The curriculum includes core requirements covering hu-
manities; social sciences; and physical, natural, and biologi-
cal sciences. In addition to the core requirements, students
select courses in either a very broad or a more specialized







COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES


program in, for example, such areas as animal behavior, neu-
rochemistry, neurophysiology, sensory mechanisms, neu-
roendocrinology, brain and behavior, or neuroembryology.
In order to focus their academic work in the various areas, all
students in the program are required to participate in re-
search with a member of the faculty of the Center for Neu-
robiological Sciences, coupled with a research seminar.
For further information about this program, consult the
Psychology Departmental Office, 1114 Psychology Bldg.
Urban Studies
Students in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences who
wish to pursue a major concentration in urban studies may
apply to do so as an individual interdisciplinary major. Alter-
natively they may also pursue a minor area of interest in the
Urban Studies Certificate Program. The Urban Studies major
is designed to provide a sound and broadly based program
in the social sciences for students who plan to enter pro-
fessional planning schools, graduate urban studies pro-
grams, or expect to work upon receipt of the baccalaureate
degree.
The core of courses required of all students in the major
provides the broadest possible exposure to the several dis-
ciplines concerned with urban problems and also to the
broadest range of methodologies used in urban analysis. If
possible, the research project in IDS 4905 course is carried
out in conjunction with an internship in a firm or agency
suitable to the student's interest.
A number of faculty members from departments in the so-
cial sciences serve as a panel from which students choose a
committee of at least two members to supervise their
progress through the program and the IDS 4905 project.
Questions about the Urban Studies program may be
directed to Dean F. Eugene Dunnam, 2121 GPA.

SPECIAL PROGRAMS
ENGLISH LANGUAGE INSTITUTE
A full-time noncredit, nondegree program in English as a
second language is available to foreign students with some
knowledge of the language who wish to increase their com-
petency. The program, which may be taken any of the quar-
ters of the academic year, emphasizes the oral and written
skills needed by students from abroad who plan to attend a
university in the United States. Further information is avail-
able from Dr. Jayne C. Harder, Director, English Language In-
stitute, 162 Grinter Hall, University of Florida, Gainesville,
Florida 32611.
TEACHER PREPARATION IN ARTS AND SCIENCES
Students may earn their degrees in the College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences and complete requirements for certifica-
tion as secondary school teachers in one or more academic
subjects by following one of the Liberal Arts and Sciences-
Education Programs described in the College of Education
section of this catalog.

School of Accounting





Colleges


The School of

Accounting


GENERAL STATEMENT
The School of Accounting of the University of Florida was
established July 1, 1977. The objective of the School of Ac-
counting is to provide the technical and general education
for graduates to assimilate the proficiency necessary to enter
the accounting profession and progress rapidly through
levels of increasing responsibility. The field of accounting
offers outstanding opportunities in such areas as public ac-
counting, industrial accounting, nonprofit accounting, and
tax accounting.
The accountant deals with complex problems in the busi-
ness world. This requires a thorough knowledge of business
operations and the environment of business as well as ac-
counting knowledge. In addition to the demanding techni-
cals skills, an ability to communicate clearly in both verbal
and written form is essential. The accountant interacts with
people constantly and must develop interpersonal skills. Ac-
counting is'more of an art than a science and professional
judgment is an important element in the practice of accoun-
tancy. Although accounting is unusually demanding and re-
quires a high achievement motivation in order to succeed,
the rewards are high.

ACCOUNTING RESEARCH CENTER
The Accounting Research Center was organized in 1976 to
sponsor and encourage both frontier-seeking research and
research that has immediate benefit to the profession. The
Center provides an opportunity for graduate students to be-
come involved in specific research projects on a regular
basis. Occasionally research projects provide a similar op-
portunity for undergraduate students. The Center publishes
research results in a working paper series. For information
contact the Director of the Accounting Research Center,


School of Accounting, University of Florida, Gainesville,
Florida.


PROGRAM OF STUDY
'The recommended curriculum to prepare for a pro-
fessional career in accounting is the five-year program lead-
ing to the Master of Accounting degree. The five-year pro-
gram allows the student to concentrate in an accounting
specialty in addition to providing knowledge of both the
basic accounting framework and the underlying business
and related disciplines. Details concerning the five year pro-
gram including the specialization areas of financial/audit-
ing, managerial/cost, systems and tax are included in the
Graduate School Catalog which can be obtained by writing
the Director of Admissions, University of Florida,
Gainesville, Florida. Additional information can also be ob-
tained by contacting the School of Accounting, University of
Florida, Gainesville, Florida.
Students who successfully complete the first four years of
the five-year program will receive the Bachelor of Science in
Accounting degree. Graduates will have the requisite ac-
counting, business, and general education to pursue a varie-
ty of career opportunities in accounting and business and to
apply to graduate and professional degree programs in ac-
counting, business or law. Students wishing to specialize in
professional accounting should plan to complete the final
year of the five-year program.


REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION
The University of Florida and the School of Accounting
encourages applications from qualified students from all
cultural, racial, religious, and ethnic groups. Listed below are
the specific minimum requirements for admission to this
School. It should be understood however that these are min-
imum requirements and that admission to this School is a
selective process. The satisfaction of minimum requirements
does not automatically guarantee admission. A student's to-
tal record including educational objective, pattern of
courses previously completed, quality of previous academic
record, and test data will all be considered in evaluating an
application for admission. Priority in admission will be given
to those applicants whose potential on the basis of their to-
tal record indicates the greatest likelihood of success in the
program requested.
Students Classified UF: To be eligible for admission to the
School of Accounting, a student classified UF must have
completed at least 12 semester credits of preprofessional
courses. Acceptance to the School of Accounting will be
based upon the grade point average earned and prerequisite
courses completed.
Transfer Students: To be eligible for admission to the
School of Accounting, a transfer student must satisfy the
minimum requirements for admission that are set forth in
the transfer admissions section below. Additionally, the ap-
plicant should complete, as far as possible, the courses re-
quired for the desired curriculum as indicated in the pro-
gram for the Freshman and Sophomore years in the College
of Liberal Arts and Sciences section. A minimum of 12
semester credits of preprofessional courses must be com-
pleted prior to admission to the School of Accounting. Com-
pletion of these courses and receipt of an AA degree does
not guarantee acceptance to the School of Accounting. Ac-
ceptance to the School of Accounting will be based upon
prerequisite courses completed and the student's earned
grade point average.

A. Students attending four year colleges, who wish to
transfer after two years, should follow a program of gener-
al education and preprofessional courses similar to the
Basic Curriculum for the Freshman and Sophomore years
for students desiring to enter the School of Accounting
'which is outlined in the College of Liberal Arts and Sci-
ences section of this catalog. Prerequisite courses in busi-
ness subjects during the first two years should be-com-







SCHOOL OF ACCOUNTING


pleted as indicated in paragraph B.3 below. Courses
should not be taken during the first two years which are
offered only at the upper division level at the University of
Florida.
B. Junior College and Community College students
should:
1. Complete the university transfer program at the jun-
ior college.
2. Complete the general education requirements estab-
lished for the junior college.
3. Complete, insofar as possible, all of the following
courses which are prerequisite to any advanced pro-
fessional work in the School: an introductory course (or
courses) covering both financial and managerial ac-
counting, a one-year sequence in economics, a one-
year sequence in analytical geometry and calculus, and
an introductory course in statistics. Differences in the
order of presenting material in basic one year courses
make it highly undesirable to take parts of such courses
in different institutions.
4. Choose elective courses needed to complete the to-
tal 64 semester hours in the university transfer program
from such areas as mathematics, natural sciences, social
science, foreign language, and humanities.
5. Avoid professional coursework that is available at the
University of Florida only as 3rd and 4th year courses.
TRANSFER STUDENTS ARE ADVISED TO AVOID SUCH
COURSES AS BUSINESS LAW, PRINCIPLES OF MAR-
KETING, PRINCIPLES OF MANAGEMENT, PRINCIPLES
OF INSURANCE, PRINCIPLES OF REAL ESTATE, PER-
SONNEL MANAGEMENT, AND COMPUTER MANAGE-
MENT COURSES. A maximum of four semester credits
may be allowed for courses taken during the first two
years which are available only as third and fourth year
professional courses in the College of Business Admin-
istration at the University of Florida. Any credit granted
for such work will be in the form of undistributed elec-
tive credit without reference to specific courses taken.
In no case may such courses be in accounting. In the
case where a student wishes to waive an upper division
core course and substitute a community college course,
waivers may be granted on an individual basis but the
student will be required to take another course in the
area being waived. The course will be specified by the
Department Chairman of the area.
Provisional Admission: Within space limitations, students
who do not meet precisely the admission requirements in-
dicated in the appropriate section above may be granted
provisional admission to the School of Accounting. The Di-
rector of the School of Accounting will specify the courses to
be completed and minimum grade points to be earned by
the student during the term of his provisional admission.
Provisional status will be removed and the student fully ad-
mitted to the School of Accounting provided he or she
fulfills the conditions set forth in his or her provisional ad-
mission. The student will be excluded from further en-
rollment in the School of Accounting if he or she fails to sat-
isfy the conditions of provisional admission.

studies has been developed. The program provides course
selection to obtain a broad knowledge of the environment,
especially the inter-relationships between the activities of
man and environmental quality. Students enrolled in one of
the existing major programs in the College of Agriculture
and for this minor will learn to apply their major discipline
to the solution of environmental problems.
The environmental studies minor will include environ-
mental courses in three basic groups as follows: biological
sciences, physical sciences, and social sciences. At least one
course from each of these three groups is required. A mini-
mum of 12 semester hours credit is required for the minor.

**Six semester credits will be accepted if taken as a require-
ment for an Associate of Arts degree.
Because of the rigid course requirements, most students re-
quire somewhat more than two years to complete this cur-
riculum. Also, since admission to Veterinary School is com-
petitive, students usually need to make considerably more
than the minimum grade point average of 2.75.
Pre-veterinary students should consult the Dean of the Col-
lege of Agriculture before registering for the pre-veterinary
curriculum.
Residents of Florida who will have completed the pre-
veterinary requirements in June of the year that entrance
into the College of Veterinary Medicine is desired in the Fall,
and who wish to be included in the State's list of eligibles,

AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERING
BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN ENGINEERING (Agricultural
Engineering)
The Agricultural Engineering curriculum is offered cooper-
atively by the College of Agriculture and the College of Engi-
neering. Students in this major receive basic training in engi-
neering and agriculture so that they are prepared to solve
the specialized and unique engineering problems of agricul-
tural production and processing systems and the manage-
ment and conservation of agricultural land and water re-
sources. Since engineering problems in agriculture relate to
biological production and processing of biological products,
training in agricultural and biological courses is obtained.
Students desiring careers in Agricultural Engineering will reg-
ister in the College of Engineering. See College of Engineer-
ing for curriculum.


AGRICULTURAL AND EXTENSION
EDUCATION
The Agricultural and Extension Education curriculum is
designed to prepare students for careers in agricultural edu-
cation and the cooperative extension service. Students ma-
joring in this department have a common core curriculum
which combines courses in technical agriculture, pro-
fessional education, and/or extension methodology. The de-
partment chairperson or one of the departmental advisers
will advise students majoring in this department in the selec-
tion of electives and requirements to meet the students' ca-
reer goals.
The agricultural education (teaching) program provides
the student with the basic courses for teacher certification in
Florida. In addition to these courses, a graduate must still ap-

ply to the State Department of Education for certification.







COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE


Each applicant who applies for a full-time Florida teaching
certificate shall be required to present a passing score on
each subtest of the Florida Teacher Certification Examina-
tion as part of the requirements to establish eligibility for
certification.
Students wishing to enroll in AEE 4942 "Agricultural and
Extension Education Practicum" (teaching internship) must
meet the following criteria:
1. Advanced senior standing.
2. Completion of EDF 4210 or equivalent, speech and 16
hours of professional education in agricultural education.
3. A "C" average (2.0) or better.
4. A "C" average (2.0) or better, in all professional educa-
tion courses required in the area of specialization.
5. Grades of less than "C" in Agricultural Education
courses will not be accepted.
6. Score a total score of at least 835 on the Scholastic Ap-
titude Test (SAT) or a composite score of 17 or above on
the American College Testing Program (ACT).
Students wishing to enroll in AEE 4943 "Agricultural Ex-
tension Practicum" (extension internship) must meet the fol-
lowing criteria:
1. Advanced senior standing.
2. A "C" average (2.0) or better.
3. A "C" average (2.0) or better in all professional educa-
tion courses required in the area of specialization.
4. Completion of the following courses:
a. AEE 3313
b. AEE 4424
c. AEE 3200
(b and c may be modified with approval of departmen-
tal chairperson)
Assignment to an internship center is an involved process
and is not taken lightly. Every consideration is given to stu-
dent. requests. However, applicants are specifically NOT
guaranteed assignment to their home county, to the im-
mediate and general vicinity of the campus or to a given
center on request. Assignments will be made only to those
centers indicated at time of application. Submission of an
application by a candidate constitutes an agreement to ac-
cept assignment in the center where it is determined that the
objectives of the internship program can best be achieved.
Failure to accept an assignment negotiated by Department
personnel relieves the Department of any further responsi-
ility to provide internship experiences and courses for the
candidate.
The student completing this program will be required to
satisfy the College of Agriculture core curriculum require-
ments.
All students will take a basic skills assessment examination
while enrolled in AEE 3323. This examination includes sec-
tions on mathematics, reading and writing. A student must
have a successful score on all sections of the basic skills
assessment examination prior to admission to the teaching
internship experience.

FOOD SCIENCE AND
HUMAN NUTRITION
The Food Science and Human Nutrition Department of-
fers two curricula, Basic Food Science and Nutrition and
Dietetics. Students in these curricula take a common core of
courses, required courses for their area of concentration, and
electives. Students should consult the departmental advisers
for guidance and approval of electives.
The Basic Food Science curriculum is designed to utilize
the principles of chemistry, biochemistry, microbiology, en-
gineering, other basic sciences, and management in applica-
tions related to the manufacturing, processing, preserving,
distribution and packaging of food and food products for
immediate or future utilization. General areas of study in-
clude: chemical, microbiological, and nutritional properties
of raw and processed foods; role of processing and engineer-
ing in modifying food properties; food deterioration and
spoilage; role of additives and other ingredients; food safety;
food fermentation and new food product innovations. An
opportunity is offered for students to intensify in areas of
specialization such as general food processing, citrus pro-
cessing, seafood processing, food chemistry, food engineer-
ing, food microbiology, management, food marketing, nutri-
tion, public health and consumer protection. Cooperative
programs are available with the appropriate commodity de-
partments for students desiring to specialize in dairy, meat,
poultry or fruit and vegetable processing. An excellent foun-
dation for graduate study and research in Food Science or re-
lated fields is also provided.
The Nutrition and Dietetics curriculum is designed to give
students a foundation in nutrition and, if desired, for a gen-
eral dietetics internship program upon graduation. The
Nutrition and Dietetics curriculum provides an excellent un-
dergraduate education for students planning to enter a grad-
uate program in human or animal nutrition. Students prepar-
ing for the professions of medicine, dentistry, or veterinary
medicine normally complete the minimum program and ad-
ditional courses chosen with the help of their advisers.
