Now that you have the University of Florida's undergraduate catalog, you might like help in using
it. According 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
administration 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, e>

UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA


FLORIDAS FIRST UNIVERSITY


A COMPLETE UNIVERSITY
THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA is one of America's truly
distinctive universities. Along with Ohio State and the
University' of Minnesota, the University of Florida 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 10 largest universities; yet its division
into 20 colleges and schools, with their 140 departments,
gives students the opportunity to know and work closely
with their classmates and teachers. Its location in Gaines-
ville, 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. $
THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA is a residential campus,
with rich resources available because of its size, that
provides a learning and living environment for the whole
person: Daily contacts in class, in clubs, between
classes and in campus residence halls or apartments -
with other students from every spectrum of society and
with virtually every career goal Daily opportunities to
attend concerts, theater productions, art shows, seminars,
athletic contests, lectures, and a myriad of other events
featuring nationally and internationally known talents ..
Daily communications with a faculty that is comprised of
some of the nation's leading scholars Working in


laboratories and libraries among the best in the nation.
More than 1,500 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
offers more for its undergraduate students.
Undergraduates aspiring for graduate or professional
degrees can study in libraries and laboratories equipped
for almost every advanced degree offered anywhere in the
world. They study alongside advanced graduate and
professional 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 universities 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 for admission
to graduate and professional schools are recognized by
the world's leading universities.
Students desiring only bachelor's degrees can choose
from 114 majors, almost all of them strengthened by








correlative graduate degree programs. This means students
can enrich their bachelor's degree programs with ad-
vanced courses designed 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
studies in a complete academic atmosphere.

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 102 foreign countries. Eighty-five per cent of
the university's entering freshmen earned admission test
scores above the national mean. Thirty-eight per cent of
the undergraduates 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 5th
among state universities and 13th among all universities in
the nation in the number of national merit and merit
achievement scholars in attendance. But the University of
Florida is not an elitist university. And it does not want to
be. Students who do not qualify academically for admis-
sion to a Florida state univerCity may be admitted under
special programs. These students, and any others who
desire, are offered special instructional programs to help
them progress scholastically. These programs have the
central 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. Half of Florida's Cabinet members, in addition to
the Governor, are UF graduates, as are approximately 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 Florida's most influential governmental, professional 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
leadership training success. The contained campus in a
larger community whose principal focus is on the Universi-
ty -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 commit-
tee for governance of the university as a whole and
there are dozens of them -has student members. The
University turns many of its activities over to students to
implement. Students serve on advisory boards and coun-
cils in city and county government. Hundreds of students
are employed in career-developing positions and serve
internships in Gainesville area institutions. More than 300
students organizations, including fraternities and sororities,
require full slates of officers. Virtually every academic
offering provides opportunity for membership in chapters
of national student organizations. Churches and civic
groups in the community provide special programs and
opportunities just for University of Florida students. More
than 500 participate in a student volunteer action organi-
zation, providing companionship and assistance to chil-
dren, the elderly, the handicapped, the incarcerated, the
underprivileged, and the lonely in 14 separate programs. It
is the largest student volunteer action group in the nation.
A nationally-recognized Student Services Office offers
counseling programs for dozens of special student prob-
lems both academic and personal as well as
leadership training programs.
The University of Florida sees every student as a whole
person. It has planned its programs and activities accord-
ingly.

purposes for existence because of its inclusive, and
mutually supportive, programs in the arts, the humani-
ties, the sciences, and the professions.

HISTORY
Florida's oldest, the University of Florida traces its
beginnings to the takeover of the private Kingsbury
Academy in Ocala by the state-funded East Florida
Seminary in 1853. The Seminary was moved to Gainesville
following the Civil War. It was consolidated with the
state's land-grant Florida Agricultural College, then in Lake
City, to become the University of Florida in Gainesville in
1906, with an initial enrollment of 102. Until 1947, UF was
the men's school and one of only three state colleges.
Others were Florida State College for Women (now FSU)
and Florida A&M. Since 1947, when the student body
numbered 8,177 men and 601 women, UF has grown to
more than 35,000, largest in the south and 10th largest in
the nation.


SETTING AND ENVIRONMENT
The University of Florida is located in Gainesville, a city
of approximately 85,000 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 boating 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 activities.
Practically every religious denomination is represented
in the Gainesville area including: Presbyterian, Baptist,
Lutheran, 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, Assembly of God, Apostolic Church of Christ,
Church of God, Disciples of Christ, Pentecostal Holiness,
United Church of Christ, and Unitarian-Universalists. Sever-
al of these denominations maintain chapels adjacent to
the campus. These include St. Augustine Chapel (Catholic
Student Center), the Baptist Student Union, Wesley Foun-
dation (Methodist Student Center), Chapel of the Incarna-
tion (Episcopal Student Center), Church of Christ, B'nai
B'rith Hillel Foundation (Jewish), the Lutheran Student
Association, the Latter Day Saints (Mormon), Disciples-
Presbyterian Student Center, and the Society of Friends
(Quaker). All the chapels carry on extensive programs of
vital interest to University students.

THE DEPARTMENT OF GENERAL PHYSICAL EDUCATION
offers a wide variety of physical activity .courses to all
students enrolled at the University. The Department
operates on the premise that although all people need
physical activity, all do not need or care for the same
kind. Consequently, the department offers many avenues
for the student to enhance physical health and understand
its relation to total health.
It is hoped that by developing competency in physical
activity, students will be able to make self-determining
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.

tions in their homelands and also gives information to all
students interested in foreign agricultural problems and
careers in the tropics.

UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA
LIBRARY SERVICE
The Library consists of two central units, Library East
and Library West, and branch libraries in the areas of
Architecture and Fine Arts, Music, Education, Engineering,
Law, the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, the J.
Hillis Miller Health Center, Chemistry, Physics, Astronomy,
and the P.K. Yonge Laboratory School. In addition, reading
room facilities have been provided for Business Administra-
tion, Journalism and Communications, Physical Education,
Health and Recreation, and the residence hall areas.
The holdings of the libraries number over 2,400,000
cataloged volumes and a large number of uncataloged
international; federal, and state documents and newspa-
pers. Many of the materials are in micromaterial format.
(microfilm, microcard, and microfiche). The University of
Florida is a member of the Association .of Research
Libraries, and its collection is one of the largest in the
Southeast.
A number of nationally significant research collections
are maintained as part of the library system. Since 1977,
the Libraries have opened the Isser and Rae Price Library
of Judaica, the largest collection of its kind in the
Southeast, the Baldwin Library, among the world's greatest
collections of literature for children, and housed in the
Department of Rare Books and Manuscripts, the Parkman
D. Howe Collection of American Literature, which contains
important first editions and manuscripts of every New
England author writing before 1900. In the rare books and
manuscript area, the researcher will also find the papers of
many well-known authors, such as Marjorie Kinnan
Rawlings and John D. McDonald, and the Margaret Dreier
Robins papers, which are vital to the history of the
Women's Trade Union League in America.
The P.K. Yonge Library of Florida History is the State's
preeminent Floridiana collection, and its holdings of
Spanish Colonial documents concerning the southeastern
United States is the largest of its kind in North America.
The Map Library is an extensive repository of maps,
atlases, aerial photographs, and remote sensing imagery
with particular collection strengths for the southeastern
U.S., Florida, Latin America, and Africa south of the Sahara.

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
Florida. Through its affiliation with the University it carries
the dual responsibility of the State Museum of Florida and
the University Museum.
The Museum operates as a center of research in natural
history. Its functions as an educational arm of the
University are carried forward through interpretive displays
and scientific and popular publications. Utder the adminis-
trative control of the Director are the three departments
of the Museum: Natural Sciences is concerned with the
study and expansion of the research collections as well as
research in a variety of areas in functional and evolution-
ary biology, sociobiology and ecology; Anthropology is
concerned with the study of human variation and cultures,
both historic and prehistoric; Interpretation is concerned
with the interpretation of knowledge through museum
education and exhibit techniques. Members of the scientif-
ic and educational staff of the Museum hold dual
appointments in appropriate teaching departments.
Through these appointments they participate in both the
undergraduate and graduate teaching programs and
supervision of graduate students.
Scientific reports are published in the Bulletin of the
Florida State Museum, Biological Sciences, the Ripley P.
Bullen Monographs in Anthropology and History, and in
the Contributions of the Florida State Museum, Anthropol-
ogy and History.
The research collections are under the care of curators
who encourage the scientific study of the Museum's
holdings, Materials are constantly being added to the
collections both through gifts from friends and as the
result of research activities of the Museum staff. There are
extensive study collections of birds, mammals, mollusks,
reptiles, amphibians, fish, invertebrate and vertebrate
Fossils, as well as archives of animals' sounds associated
with the bioacoustics laboratory. The archaeological and
ethnological collections are noteworthy.
The Allyn Museum of Entomology, Sarasota, Florida, is a
unit 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
Lepidoptera research center in the world. The Allyn
Museum of Entomology publishes the Bulletin of the Allyn

visual and 20,000 watts aural. The over-air broadcast signal
encompasses a 65-mile radius from the station's transmit-
ter site northwest of Gainesville and reaches 16 counties in
North Central Florida. WUFT-TV's signal is carried by more
than 20 cable companies in the state, expanding the
coverage area even beyond these broadcast boundaries.,
The station's programming is a mixture of programs
acquired through the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS),
Florida Public Broadcasting, Inc. (FPB), various public
broadcasting consortium, independent distributors, and
locally produced programs. Of the latter category WUFT-
TV produces an evening newscast and a television
magazine program, both aired on weeknights, in addition
to specially produced features and documentaries. The
station has won numerous local, regional, and national
awards for outstanding promotion and advertising cam-
paigns it has conducted in support of programs and

produce and broadcast regular news programs over both
stations under faculty supervision.
The student's proximity to and participation in this
diverse broadcast operation brings a greater understanding
of the opportunities and obligations that exist in the field
of broadcasting.
THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA PRESS. The University of
Florida is host to the State University System's scholarly
publishing facility, University Presses of Florida. The goals
of the systemwide publishing program implemented 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 Man-
agers oversees the locally determined publishing program.


The purpose of the University of Florida Press is to
encourage, seek out, and publish original and scholarly
manuscripts which will aid in developing the University as
a recognized center of research and scholarship.
The Press Board of Managers, including the director and
15 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 exam-
ines 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,
Association of American University Presses and of the
Association of American Publishers, Inc.

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
excellence in education and to provide maximum service
to the State. The Division is a development arm of the
University, directed by the Vice President for Research.
All proposals for sponsorship of research, grants-in-aid,
and training grants are approved by the Director. Negotia-
tions 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
University. These activities are intimately related to the
support of the graduate and professional program. The
services provided are designed to relieve the principal
investigators in many departments of detailed administra-
,tive 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
the responsibility 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 ensure
uniformity in contract requirements and to avoid duplica-
tion of negotiations with the same sponsor.
THE AGRICULTURAL EXPERIMENT STATION, the research
function unit of the Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences (IFAS), has the responsibility of developing new
knowledge and technology toward solution of agricultural
problems in the State. Research is administered through
the office of the Dean for Research located on the
University of Florida campus. IFAS research is conducted
throughout the State. Departments located on campus
include Agricultural Engineering, Agricultural and Exten-
sion Education, Agronomy, Animal Science, Botany, Dairy
Science, Entomology and Nematology, Food and Resource
Economics, Food Science and Human Nutrition, 4-H and
Other Youth Programs, Fruit Crops, Home Economics,
Microbiology and Cell Science, Soil Science, Statistics,
Vegetable Crops, and Preventive Medicine (College of
Veterinary Medicine). In addition, five units vital to its
research programs,' namely: Editorial, Library, Business
Service, and. Centers for Environmental Programs and
Biomass, are located on campus. The School of Forest
Resources and Conservation includes Departments of
Forestry, Wildlife and Range Sciences, and Fisheries and
Aquaculture.
In order to best serve the' varied needs of Florida's
diversified agriculture, Agricultural Research and Educa-
tional Centers are located at numerous locations having
different climatic conditions, soil types and crops. Intensive




General
GENERAL INFORMATION


research is conducted in all fields of agriculture such as
citrus, vegetable, field crops, livestock, pastures, and many
others. Agriculture Research and Education Centers are
located in Homestead, Belle Glade, Bradenton, Lake Alfred,
Quincy, Sanford, and Tallahassee (Florida A & M Universi-
ty). A Research and Education Center is also located at
Welaka, Florida, and is concerned largely with biological
research programs and youth programs. Agricultural Re-
search Centers are located in Monticello, Ft. Pierce,
Immokalee, Dover, Ft. Lauderdale, Hastings, Ona, Apopka,
Marianna, Live Oak, Leesburg, and Jay. Cooperative
research is conducted with the Brooksville Beef Cattle
Research Station, Brooksville, a USDA field laboratory, in
its beef cattle and pasture production and management
programs, with the National Weather Service, Ruskin, in
the Federal Frost Warning Service for fruit and vegetable
producers and shippers, and with numerous Florida
agricultural agencies and organizations.
Results of IFAS Research are published in scientific
journals, bulletins, monographs, circulars, and mimeograph
reports which are available to Florida residents usually
without charge upon request to the Editorial Department
of the Agricultural Experiment Station in Gainesville. The
Agricultural Experiment Station cooperates closely with the
Cooperative Extension Service in providing research find-
ings for prompt dissemination.
THE FLORIDA ENGINEERING AND INDUSTRIAL EXPERI-
MENT STATION (EIES) developed from early research
activities of the engineering faculty and was officially
established in 1941 by the Legislature as an integral part of
the College of Engineering. Its mandate is "to organize and
promote the prosecution of research projects of engi-
neering 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
relationship with the EIES serving as the research arm of
the College. In this capacity the EIES fulfills its function of
conducting research on many of Florida's most significant
problems ranging from energy to water resources, environ-
mental issues to health-related activities. Of course many
of these problems transcend the State and are also of
national concern. 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 College since it makes good
teaching possible, exposes students to many important
engineering problems normally not encountered in a
college program, and helps the faculty better instill
students with the qualifications necessary for the success-
ful practice of their profession. Moreover, both undergrad-
uate and graduate students frequently find employment
and 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 to 1 return from contracts and grants with
government agencies, foundations, and industrial organiza-
tions. The Station has excellent facilities and faculty in
many diverse fields; a few such examples are: solar energy,
bioengineering, manufacturing and automation sciences,
energy conservation and conversion, ceramics, new
materials development, device physics, robotics, geotech-
nics, 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, and hazardous wastes man-
agement.
THE FLORIDA ARCHITECTURE AND BUILDING RE-
SEARCH CENTER, the research arm of the College of
Architecture, promotes, encourages, and coordinates re-
search activities among the college's five academic disci-
plines: Architecture, Building Construction, Urban and

Business Administration. Its activities are organized under
three research programs: population, forecasting, and
sample survey. Students are involved as research assistants
in these programs.
The Bureau disseminates the results of its research
through a publication program. Bureau publications in-
clude Florida Statistical Abstract, BEBR Monographs, The
Florida Outlook, Population Studies, Florida Estimates of
Population, Economic Leaflets, and Building Permit Activity
in Florida. For information, write the Director, Bureau of
Economic and Business Research, 221 Matherly Hall.
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
publishes research and surveys of governmental and
administrative 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.
THE COMMUNICATION RESEARCH CENTER, the re-
search arm of the College of journalism and Communica-
tions, conducts pure and applied research in a variety of
fields of mass communication, including advertising,
broadcasting, journalism, and public relations. It also
serves as a resource for college faculty and students in
their own research, assists the media and other organiza-
tions in their research pursuits, and sponsors programs
related to the mass communication needs of the many
communities served by the University.
THE DIVISION OF BUDGET AND ANALYSIS is the
primary unit responsible for financial and budgetary
planning and control for the University. The Division is
instrumental in seeking the resources necessary to achieve
the goals of the University and works with the Vice
Presidents to achieve the most effective allocation of these
resources. Data Administration for the University is coordi-
nated by the staff, who also conduct extensive institutional
research.
FACILITIES PLANNING performs the analysis and plan-
ning required to ensure that available fixed capital outlay
resources are used in providing adequate facilities for the
many and diverse programs of the University of Florida at
,minimum long-range cost. Work is carried out by the
professional staff and related committees in the areas of
campus planning, space assignment, coordination of
architectural design, and construction of facilities.
FLORIDA FREEDOM OF INFORMATION CLEARING
HOUSE is supported by a permanent endowment contrib-
uted by media throughout the state and nation. It keeps
extensive files on all freedom of information problems in
the State of Florida and produces the Florida Freedom of
Information Clearing House Newsletter 10 times a year.
THE FLORIDA WATER RESOURCES RESEARCH CENTER,
which is funded by the Department of the-Interior, was
established in 1964 at the University of Florida as the result
of the passage of P.L. 88-379 The Water Resources






GENERAL INFORMATION

INSTITUTE OF FOOD AND
AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES
THE INSTITUTE OF FOOD AND AGRICULTURAL SCI-
ENCES is the University of Florida's statewide agricultural
research and educational organization. IFAS programs
extend into every county and reach people in virtually
every community in Florida.
In April, 1964, the creation of IFAS was approved by the
Florida Board of Control. This action consolidated into one
overall budgetary unit four previously separate budgetary
units the College of Agriculture, the Florida Agricultural
Experiment Stations, the Florida Cooperative Extension
Service, and the School of Forestry. Today IFAS also
includes the College of Veterinary Medicine as well as the
Florida, Seagrant Extension Program and the Energy Exten-
sion Service. IFAS, through its unique organization, not
only transmits the benefits of the land grant system to all
Floridians alike but also is known worldwide for excellence
in teaching, research, and extension activities.
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,
environmental, and cultural problems of concern to the
people of the state. This vital developmental mission is
carried out through the three functions of resident




General
GENERAL INFORMATION


instruction, research, .and extension. These are carefully
interrelated to provide a highly coordinated effort for the
benefits 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
Hume Agricultural Library is located in the. McCarty Hall
complex.
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 complex agricultural industry. The curricula for
the different fields of study are structured to provide the
business, technological, and science education necessary
for graduates to meet the ever changing needs of a
diverse and highly specialized 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 Conserva-
tion offers an undergraduate program which leads to the
Bachelor of Science in Forest Resources and Conservation.
Graduate'programs at the master's level are offered by all
academic units. The Doctor of Philosophy degree is offered
in 12 specialties.
The mission of the IFAS research programs is one of
development as well as improving existing technology to
enable Florida's agricultural industry to become more
efficient, particularly in reducing dependence on consump-
tion of fossil fuels; to improve consumer health and
nutrition; and to improve the social and economic well-
being of producers and consumers of agricultural commo-
dities and resources. Through the network of 22 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. Additional IFAS research information is con-
tained under THE AGRICULTURAL EXPERIMENT STATION of
the Organized Research section.
The Florida Cooperative Extension Service is adminis-
tered by IFAS in cooperation with the several Boards of
County Commissioners in the State and the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture. Extension offices in all 67 counties are
responsible for the transfer and application 'of knowledge
through nonresident educational programs. These pro-
grams are tailored to fit the needs of the many audiences
in agricultural production, marketing, and utilization; home
economics; community resource development; marine
sciences; and energy. Audiences include adults and youth,
rural and urban citizens, minorities, and people from all
economic levels.
The Center for Natural Resources 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 environ-
mental damage, integrating environmental practices into
agricultural production technology, and protecting and
enhancing the quality of all of Florida's environment.
In 1980, IFAS received approval for the establishment of
the Center for Biomass Energy Systems. The Center
coordinates planning, development, and implementation of
research related to production of various types of plant
biomass, methods of converting biomass to practical forms


of fuel, and systems for utilizing bio-fuels and their co- and
by-products.
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 international research and training projects,
and assistance in the initiation of new education programs.
Integration of international programs into each department
is a specific objective. 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 office by the Center for Tropical Agricul-
ture established in 1965.

THE j. HILLS MILLER HEALTH CENTER
Outreach to people through patient care, education,
research, and community service has been the guiding
rule of the University of Florida's J. Hillis Miller Health
Center since its founding in 1956.
Today these -services emanate from a modern institution
that encompasses six colleges Medicine, Nursing,
Pharmacy, Health Related Professions, Dentistry, and
Veterinary Medicine and two teaching hospitals -
Shands for human patients and the Veterinary Medical
Teaching Hospital for animals.
Shands Hospital, under private corporate management
since 1980, serves as a major referral center for modern
patient care and clinical training of students in the health
professions. The Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital
serves the State's practicing veterinarians by providing a
modern, well-equipped facility for referring animal patients
with rare or complicated diseases.
The State's first College of Dentistry became operational
at the Health Center in 1975, followed by the first College
of Veterinary Medicine in late 1977.
The care of patients and the education of health
practitioners are strengthened by the Health Center's
affiliations with the nearby Veterans Administration Medi-
cal Center, plus a cooperative education program with 11
urban hosptials, 3 colleges in Jacksonville, and educational
affiliations with hospitals in Pensacola and Orlando.
Presently some 3,600 students are receiving training at
the Health Center through 44 different health professions
programs. These academic programs help the students to
understand that health care involves the health team: the
physician; the nurse; the dentist; the pharmacist; persons
in health related professions; the researcher; the educator;
and the counselor. Students learn that by training togeth-
er, and later by working together, they will contribute
more effectively to the patient's well-being.
In addition, the Health Center's extensive involvement in
research (a multimillion dollar enterprise of its own) brings
the students and health care practitioners in touch with
some of the latest information regarding diagnosis, treat-
ment, and prevention of illness.
Since the opening of its first units the Colleges of
Medicine and Nursing the Health Center has become a
leading center for health care, education, and research in
the Southeast. The institution is located on the southern
edge of the University of Florida campus and is named for
the late president of the university, Dr. J. Hillis Miller. Dr.
Miller's vision and determination helped formulate the
early planning of the health complex as an integral part of
the university.






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
Department Chairpersons, but such contact with Universi-
ty 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, Universi-
ty 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, Undergraduate Transfer, Postbaccalaureate,
Graduate, Dental, Law, Medical, Veterinary Medicine, or
Special student, as the case might be.
IMPORTANT NOTE: An application for admission must
be filed for the specific term that the student wishes to
enter the University and will be considered for entrance in
that term ONLY. Applicants wishing to change their
planned entry date should contact the Admissions Office
for application instructions. An approval for admission is.
valid ONLY for entrance in the term specified in the
admission notice and does not in any way imply that
approval would also be given for entrance in any other
term.

GENERAL STATEMENT
The University encourages applications from qualified
applicants of both sexes from all cultural, racial, religious,
and ethnic groups. The University does not discriminate on
the basis of handicap or age 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 arrange-
ments for handicapped applicants, and there are alternate
admissions procedures for handicapped applicants who
are unable to take the required tests.
A brief summary of the general requirements for
admission or readmission to any college or division of the
University is given below:
1. A satisfactory academic record. Each applicant must
furnish a complete chronological record of educational
institutions previously attended. Official transcripts must
be submitted in accordance with instructions which
Accompany 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 furnish-
ing false or fraudulent statements or information in
connection with an application for admission or residence
affidavit may result in disciplinary action, denial of
admission, 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
University of Florida are given in the STUDENT REGULA-
TIONS section of this catalog.
The specific requirements for admission to the Universi-
ty of Florida for the first time as a Freshman, Undergrad-
uate Transfer, Postbaccalaureate, Graduate, Dental, Law,
Medical, Veterinary Medicine, or Special student may be
found in the appropriate sections which follow. It should
be understood, however, that minimum requirements are


given and that admission to the University is a selective
process. The satisfaction of minimum requirements does
not automatically guarantee admission. Under Board of
Regents policy up to ten percent 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 undergrad-
uate students under' this exception policy. For additional
information regarding this policy, contact the Minority and
Disadvantaged Admissions Officer, Office of the Registrar.
The admission requirements have been arrived at after a
very careful study of the experiences of thousands of
students over a long period of years. In every case
minimum requirements have evolved from studies of
student performance 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 completion of academic work at the University
of Florida.
The University Admissions Committee is responsible for
administering all admissions to the University and its
various components including applicants approved as
exceptions to the minimum admission requirements set
forth in this catalog.
Students who are planning to enter the University of
Florida for the first time will be considered for admission as
follows:
1. Beginning Freshmen: students who have never at-
tended college. (See following section, ADMISSION AS A
FRESHMAN)

ADMISSIONS


under the auspices 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 coordina-
tors of the program. For details regarding the Traveling
Scholar Program and approval to participate in it, a
student must apply to the dean of the graduate school on
his home campus.

UNDERGRADUATE
INTERINSTITUTIONAL
REGISTRATION PROGRAM
The Undergraduate Interinstitutional Registration Pro-
gram enables students at State University System institu-
tions to take advantage of special resources and programs
available, on another campus in the System but not
available at their home institution, e.g., special course
offerings, research opportunities, unique laboratories, over-
seas study programs, and library collections. Coursework
taken under the Undergraduate Interinstitutional Registra-
tion Program will be accepted 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 appropri-
ate 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 return to the University Physician. Your
form should be received 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 applicants whose applications and supporting
records are received in the Admissions Office prior to
March 1st. Applications for the Fall class received after
March 1st will be considered on a "space available" 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
availability of community junior colleges and other state
universities 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 admission to upper division and professional
schools of the University since they may attend junior
colleges or other universities 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
designated 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
minimums:
1. Graduation from an accredited secondary school or
the equivalent (G.E.D., etc.).
2. Nineteen (19) academic units in college preparatory
courses. The following distribution of the 19 academic
units is required.
English (3 of which include substantial writing
requirements.)................................. ... ......... ....4
Math (at the Algebra I and above levels)......................3
Natural Science (2 of which include
substantial laboratory requirements)............................. 3
Social Science ........... .................. .. ........... .................. 3
Electives............................................... ......... ............. ..... 6
(From the areas of English, Mathematics,
Foreign Languages, Natural Sciences,
Social Sciences.)
*Effective August 1, 1987, two (2) units in a Foreign
Language will be required.
3. An overall C average as computed by the University
of Florida in academic courses.
4. A total score of at least 840 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
difficulty with school or other officials may make an
applicant ineligible regardless of academic qualifications.
Please note: Applicants who present scores on the
G.E.D. (General Equivalency Diploma) for satisfaction of the
high school graduation requirement must also present
records from secondary schools attended and test scores
in order to be considered for admission. The applicant's
overall academic background as manifested in these
records will be considered in the decison-making process.
Any Florida student who meets the above minimum
admission requirements and is interested in attending the
University of Florida is urged to submit an application. The
University will do everything possible to accept all qual-
ified applicants who apply before the application deadline
date. If the number of qualified applicants exceeds the
number that the University is permitted to enroll, admis-
sion will be on a selective basis. An applicant's total high
school record including grades, test scores, educational
objective and pattern of courses completed, rank in class,
school recommendation, and personal record will be
considered in the selection process.

Composite pictures of the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT)
results of recent Freshman classes at the University of
Florida indicate that more than 50 percent score 500 or
above on the Verbal section and more than 75 percent
score 500 or above on the Math section. In addition, more
than 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 applicants are urged to discuss the meaning
and implication of these data with their school counselors
when considering 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
requirements for consideration are essentially the same as
for Florida students except that priority in consideration
for admission will be given to those applicants who
present scores of at least 600 on each section of the
Scholastic Aptitude Test of the College Entrance Examina-
tion Board and an academic average of B or better.






ADMISSIONS


C. Admission by examination alone
All Freshman applicants must submit a transcript of
their high school record and scores on either the Scholas-
tic Aptitude Test (SAT) or the American College Test (ACT)
as indicated in the application instructions. Applicants who
believe their preparation for college is not accurately
reflected by their high school grades and/or aptitude test
scores are encouraged to also submit their scores on the
College Board Achievement Tests.
A student can qualify for admission as an entering
Freshman on the basis of College Board Achievement Tests
alone. Scores must be submitted on at least three tests
including: (1) English Composition, (2) Mathematics, and (3)
one test from among the sciences or social studies. A
Florida student must present a total score on the three
tests of at least 1500 with a minimum score of at least 500
on each test. A non-Florida student must present a total
score of at least 1600 with minimum score of at least 500
on each test. This option is not available to students who
take college courses in the above subject areas prior to
completing the College Board Achievement Tests.
A student can also qualify for admission as an entering
Freshman on the basis of College Board Advanced
Placement Tests alone. Scores must be submitted on at
least three tests including: (1) English-Language Composi-
tion, (2) Calculus AB or Calculus BC, and (3) one test from
among the sciences or social sciences. A Florida student
must present a total score on the three tests of at least 9
with a minimum score of at least 3 on each test. A non-
Florida student must present a total score of at least 10 on
the three tests with a minimum score of at least 3 on each
test. Advanced placement credit will be awarded for each
test in which the student achieves a score of 3 or higher.
This option is not available to students who take college
courses in the above subject areas prior to completing the
College Board Advanced Placement Tests.


OTHER INFORMATION OF
INTEREST TO PROSPECTIVE
FRESHMAN APPLICANTS
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
individual basis by the University's Admissions Committee.
Applications should be submitted in accordance with
deadlines published in the University Calendar.
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.

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 approximately 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 Senior 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 appli-
cant if interviews will be required after all of the above
items have been received and evaluated. IMPORTANT:


Please note that an applicant should NOT report for
interviews until advised by the Admissions Office.
The University of Florida provides numerous opportuni-
ties 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
enrollment plans within 30 days after acceptance.
Advance Housing Payment. Entering freshmen are
required to make a housing deposit within 30 days after
acceptance if they desire to live in University housing. The
housing deposit, less a $15.00 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 (APP) and in the College Level Examination
Program (CLEP) of the College,Entrance Examination Board.
Under the Advanced Placement Program a student enter-
ing 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 examina-
tion, the student may receive University credit for courses
covering similar material or exemption 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 General
Examinations. For further information, please refer to the
section of the catalog entitled Time Shortened Degree
Opportunities.
Early Decision for Superior Students. Students with
superior secondary school records (academic average at
least 3.5) and Junior year high school SAT test scores
(approximately 600 each on the Verbal and Mathematic
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 pay-
ment, 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 APPLYING section of the University
Calendar published in this catalog as well as consult the
portion of this catalog pertaining to the individual college
to which they intend to apply for specific information
regarding application deadlines. (NOTE: In a number of
undergraduate programs, the sequence of professional
courses begins ONLY in the Fall Term of the Junior year).
An applicant who waits until the last possible 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
admission of undergraduate transfer students. It should be
observed, however, that ADMISSION TO THE UNIVERSITY




General

ADMISSIONS


IS A SELECTIVE PROCESS AND SATISFYING THESE GENER-
AL REQUIREMENTS DOES NOT GUARANTEE ACCEPTANCE.
Attention is also directed to the fact that Upper Division
colleges of the University have established enrollment
quotas because of limitations of space and facilities.
Transfer applicants who meet the minimum admission
requirements will be referred to the selection committee of
the appropriate college for consideration of their enroll-
ment within the college's established quotas.
A transfer applicant should refer to the General Informa-
tion and Colleges sections of this catalog for an explana-
tion of the academic organization of the University.
If an applicant is accepted for admission, courses which
reasonably parallel the curriculum of the University of
Florida that were completed with grades of D or higher at
other 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 determine how 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 degree. Courses completed at a junior
college in excess of a total of 64 semester hours may serve
to meet specific course requirements 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.

A. FLORIDA PUBLIC JUNIOR COLLEGE GRADUATES
This section applies ONLY to students seeking to
transfer directly' from a Florida public junior college with
the Associate of Arts degree in a university parallel
program. All other junior college applicants and under-
graduate 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 nonljmited access programs at
the University if the student has completed the university
parallel program and received the Associate of Arts
degree, provided the degree has been awarded on the
basis of the following:
1. At least 60 semester hours of academic work
exclusive of occupational courses;
2. An approved general education program of at least 36
semester hours;
S3. 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
Aptitude 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 enroll-
ment quotas may require applicants to submit test scores
as a part of their selection process. When test scores are
required by an Upper Division college, the applicant will
be advised directly by that college.
An undergraduate transfer applicant who will enter the
University of Florida with junior class standing (AA degree
from a Florida public community college or 60 semester
hours of acceptable transfer credit)-must have satisfactorily
completed the College Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST)
in order to be admitted in a degree-seeking status.
Within space and fiscal limitations, applicants who have
satisfied the above minimum requirements will be consid-
ered for admission at the Junior level to an Upper Division


college. Such students may be required to take additional
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 of Arts
degree in a university parallel program and to all under-
graduate transfer applicants from other colleges or univer-
sities.
I. Requirements for Admission to the Lower Division
1. Eligible for admission as a beginning Freshman: An
applicant must have been eligible for admission to the
University of Florida as a beginning Freshman in order to
Sbe considered for admission to the Lower Division as a
transfer student. (See section, ADMISSION AS A FRESH-
MAN.)
2. Good standing: An applicant must be in good
standing and eligible to return to any institution pre-
viously attended. A student who for any reason will not
be allowed to return to an institution previously at-
tended 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 Florida) on all work attempted at each institution
previously attended. No application can be considered
until complete official transcripts of all the applicant's
undergraduate work are in the possession of the
Admissions Office. An official transcript must be fur-
nished from each institution attended regardless of
length of attendance or credit earned. Official supple-
mentary transcripts are required, as soon as they are
available, for any work completed after making applica-
tion. 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 another institution is
not eligible for admission. Regardless of the average
earned, courses completed at other institutions must
reasonably parallel the curriculum at the University of
Florida.
4. Satisfactory test, scores: An applicant who will present
less than 60 semester hours (or 90 quarter hours) of
acceptable 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 College Ability Test, College Level (SCAT).
The minimum acceptable 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 qualifications, an applicant who has experienced
serious or continuing difficulty with school or other
authorities because of improper conduct may find his
application disapproved.

II. Requirements for Admission to an Upper Division
College.
With the exception of items 1 and 4, an applicant for
admission to an Upper Division College must satisfy the
requirements listed above for admission to the Lower





ADMISSIONS


Division. By law, all applicants seeking admission to a
program in teacher education must submit scores on the
Scholastic Aptitude 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 require applicants to submit test
scores as a part of their selection 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
acceptable college courses, not more than four semester
hours of which are in Military Science and/or basic
required Physical Education as credit for advanced
standing.
2. Specific course requirements. An applicant must
present the courses listed as required for admission by
the Upper Division College of his choice, or acceptable
substitutes, as part of the courses offered for advanced
standing credit. (See appropriate college section of this
catalog.) Upon recommendation by the Upper Division
College, an applicant lacking some of the specific course
requirements may be permitted to enroll in that college
and complete them if he meets all other requirements
for admission; however, such Lower Division courses will
not reduce the number of credits required in the Upper
Division for a degree.
3. College Level Academic Skills Test. By law, all
applicants admitted in a degree-seeking status to an
Upper Division College at an institution in the State
University System of Florida must have satisfactorily
completed the College Level Academic Skills Test
(CLAST).
C. TRANSFER CREDIT POLICY
If an applicant is accepted for undergraduate transfer
admission, courses completed at other regionally accred-
ited institutions of higher education with grades of D or
higher which reasonably parallel the curriculum at the
University of Florida will be accepted for transfer credit.
The determination of how transfer credit may be used to
satisfy the specific course requirements for a degree is the
prerogative of the College within the University that
administers the work for the degree sought.
Substantially equivalent courses applicable to the stu-
dent's degree program at the University of Florida com-
pleted at nonregionally accredited institutions of higher
education may be accepted for transfer credit on an
individual basis subject to validation by the student's
subsequent performance at the University of Florida.
Credit hours for work completed at a community or
junior college after the student has earned a total of 64
semester hours (or 96 quarter hours) of acceptable transfer
credit at all institutions attended will not be accepted for
transfer credit at the University of Florida. The courses
represented by such credit hours will be recorded on the
student's University of Florida record and may be used to
satisfy experience requirements but such courses will not
reduce the number of credit hours to be completed in the
Upper Division at the University of Florida in order to earn
a degree.

The College of Dentistry aspires to attract students of
the highest caliber into its various programs. High stan-
dards of scholastic achievement, moral character, and
motivation are expected of the applicant. The student of
Dentistry must possess a high basic aptitude supple-
mented 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, integrity, intellectual
honesty, and a sense of responsibility. A broad representa-
tion 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.
However, qualified students may be accepted without
fulfilling the degree requirements, provided they show
evidence of sufficient preparation for the study of Dentist-
ry. Applicants with an overall B average as a minimum will
receive strongest consideration for admission to the
College of Dentistry.
Every applicant must take the Dental Admission Test,
preferably in the Spring preceding the submission of his
initial application or, at the latest, the Fall testing period.
The test is given twice a year at many college and
university testing centers. Following a review of all applica-
tion materials and Dental Admission Test scores by the
Dental Admissions Committee, interviews with members
of this Committee will be arranged for competitive
applicants.

his intended date of entry.
Personal qualities of high order character, responsibil-
ity, 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 performance of the student in relation to the

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 Association of American Medical Colleges, and (3)
space is available.
Prospective applicants must take the Medical College
Admissions Test, preferably by the Spring preceding the

ADMISSION AS
A TRANSIENT STUDENT
Subject to availability of faculty, space, and facilities, a
regular undergraduate student in good standing at another
accredited 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 institu-
tion. 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
appropriate forms for enrolling as a NON-DEGREE student
should be requested from the Admissions Section, Office
of the Registrar. Since registration is subject to the
, availability of space, approval to enroll as a nondegree
student cannot be given prior to the first day of classes in
the term for which the student wishes to enroll.
Credit earned in a NON-DEGREE status is not automat-
ically applicable to a University of Florida degree should
the student later be admitted in a regular status. Admis-
sion as a NON-DEGREE student in no way implies future
admission as a regular student to the University of Florida.


ADMISSION INFORMATION FOR

term. If the student is unable to enroll for the term
indicated in the notice of acceptance, the Admissions
Office should be informed immediately. If the student
wishes to be considered for entrance to a different term,

stances should an applicant make definite plans to depart
for Gainesville until officially notified by the University that
approval has been given to the application for admission.
A student who comes to the campus without first
receiving an official notice of acceptance does so entirely
at his own risk. The student's presence on campus will not
influence the decision on an application for admission.

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 immedi-
ately preceding 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 registration, driver's license,
automobile registration, location of bank account,
rent receipts or any other relevant materials as
evidence that the applicant has maintained contin-
uous 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
dwelling 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 students to whom an Immigration Parolee
card or a Form 1-94 (Parole Edition) was issued at least
one year prior to the first day of classes for which
Florida student status is sought; or who have had
their resident alien status approved by the United
States Immigration and Naturalization Service; or who
hold an Immigration and Naturalization Form 1-151, 1-
551 or a notice of an approved adjustment of status
application, Cuban Nationals, Vietnamese Refugees,
other refugees or asylees so designated by the United
States Immigration Service who are considered as
Resident Aliens, provided such students meet the
residency requirements stated above and comply
with subsection (2) below. The burden of 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 classifi-
cation.
(b) In applying this policy:
1. "Student" shall mean a person admitted to the
institution or a person allowed to register at the
institution 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 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 incorpo-
rated 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
applicant, 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" under the terms and conditions prescribed for
citizens, residents, 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 registering 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. Provided also that,
effective Fall, 1984, any period of time in which the
student resides in the state primarily for educational
purposes shall not be counted towards residency status.
An application for reclassification as a "Florida student"
shall comply with provisions of subsection (2) above. An
applicant who has been classified as a "non-Florida"
student at time of original enrollment shall furnish
evidence as stated in 6C-7.05 (1) to the satisfaction of
the registering authority that the applicant has main-
tained continuous residency in the state for the twelve
months required to establish residence for tuition
purposes. In the absence of such evidence, the applicant
shall not be reclassified as a "Florida student.". It is
recommended that the application for reclassification be
accompanied by a certified copy of a declaration of
intent to establish legal domicile in the state, which
intent 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
intends 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
likewise entitled to classification as a "Florida stu-
dent." 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 ah 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
application a written statement under oath, that said
person is the spouse of the applicant and a bonafide

citizen, resident 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
educational 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 established domicile and residency in the
state, as provided under subsection (3) above.
(d) Any "Florida student" who remains in the state,
after his parent previously domiciled in Florida or
stationed in Florida on military orders removes from
this state, shall be 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." However, such student claiming contin-
uous attendance must have been enrolled at a
school, college or university 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 attendance is claimed. Such a
student need not attend summer sessions or other
such intersession beyond the normal 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
appropriate administrative remedies are exhausted by
the filing 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
president of the university.
(7) Special Categories-The following categories shall be
treated as Florida residents for tuition purposes if
adequate'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 depen-
dent students.
(b) A veteran of the Armed Forces.of the United
States of America with twenty (20) or more years of
active military service, including the spouse and
dependent students of such veteran's immediate
family, provided that the veteran is in Florida at time

domicile.

fostered by the United States government shall be
deemed to have had residency in Florida during times

(8) Reciprocal Agreements. The Board of Regents may


enter into agreements with appropriate agencies and
institutions of higher education in other states and
foreign countries providing for the reciprocal exchange
of students enrolled and prospective in higher educatio-
nal institutions to facilitate utilization of public higher
educational institutions in this State and other states or

nated categories of students and may include contrac-
tual payments to such other state or country, subject to

have as their purpose the mutual improvement of
educational advantages for residents of this State and
such other states or countries with whom agreements

OFFICE FOR
STUDENT SERVICES
The Office for Student Services,at the University of
Florida is committed to the total development of students.
The major purpose of this department's programs, services,
and activities is to facilitate and enhance the intellectual,

dents. The staff of the Office for Student Services, which
includes deans and directors, are responsible for planning,
coordinating, and implementing a variety of programs and
services which are designed to.provide students with the
opportunity to reach their full potential, academically as
well as in their personal lives.
Other major objectives of the Office for Student
Services include making students aware of and encourag-
ing the use of the resources of the University; interpreting
the goals, objectives, and actions of the University to
students; and encouraging a sense of community among
students, faculty, and staff.
A number of program functions emerge from these

The International Student Center and the Institute of
Black Culture are also operational units of the Office for
Student Services.
INTERNATIONAL STUDENT SERVICES
SThe International Student Services Center assists inter-
national students in adjusting to the changing lifestyle and
study habits in a new and sometimes perplexing environ-
ment. Special services are provided related to foreign
educational and cultural backgrounds; language, legal,
employment, academic, and personal matters; U.S. immi-
gration 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 program of social activities, orientation
seminars, and community 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
enlightenment and Black awareness where Afro-Americans
can focus on their history, literature, art, culture, and
lifestyle. It is also a place where all ethnic groups can
develop a better understanding of Blacks and an apprecia-
tion of Black contributors to American society. The center
sponsors programs, exhibits and related activities.

special campus orientation, registration assistance, secur-
ing auxiliary learning aids, and assistance in general
University activities. Students with disabilities are encour-
aged to contact this office to obtain any needed assis-
tance.

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 experi-
ence that the students will long remember. Our desire is
to provide accommodations and programs to meet the
needs of our students while promoting the overall educa-
tional 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 100 different foreign countries. Since
our students come from differing environmental back-
grounds 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 program. Therefore, we have developed
a program based upon alternatives and choices. Our
students may select from various housing accommoda-
tions and environments that best fit their needs.

GENERAL INFORMATION
All freshmen who apply for admission to the University






STUDENT AFFAIRS


will receive a Housing Application Card with their formal
letter of admission from the Admissions Office.
The University of Florida has no residency requirement
for freshmen attending the University for the first time
during the Fall Semester. Freshmen entering the University
during the Summer Term(s) must live on campus to be
eligible for Fall Semester on-campus housing. 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
entire academic year (August to May) if enrolled. However,
residents must be full-time students to be eligible to reside
in the residence halls. Full-time enrollment for residence is
defined as being enrolled in 12 credit hours if an
undergraduate and 9 credit hours if a graduate student.
All students other than beginning freshmen must initiate
their own arrangements for housing either by (1) applying
to the Division of Housing, Assignments Office, for
assignment to University housing facilities, or (2) obtaining
accommodations in private housing (see Off-Campus
Housing).
All correspondence concerning application for Universi-
ty housing should be addressed to the Division of Housing,
Assignments Office, University of Florida, Gainesville,
Florida, 32611. An application for residence hall space for
students other than freshmen may be filed 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 demand for housing..
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 individu-
als wishing to room together submit their Housing
Agreements on the same date, clearly indicate their desire
to room together on their respective Agreements, elect
the same visitation choice and assignment option, and are
within similar academic classification.
Disabled students are also offered housing on a first-
come, first-served, space-available basis. Accessible hous-
ing is available for handicapped students once they are
offered housing. Students with special needs should
indicate these needs on their Housing Agreement.



ROOM STYLES
There are several room styles to fit the individual
student's preference. The most prevalent is the double
room, accommodating 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 an individual closet, storage space,
dresser, bed and mattress, study desk, and chairs.
Room rates vary, depending on such features as air
conditioning, 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-conditioned, and has a telephone.
The Murphree Residential Area offers many suites for
two students. 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 majority of rooms in this
area are non-air-conditioned. However, Sledd and Fletcher
Halls, which comprise approximately one-third of the area,
are newly renovated, air-conditioned facilities.


THE RESIDENCE HALL STAFF
AND STUDENT GOVERNMENT
A full complement of professional and paraprofessional
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
activities, from initiating social and intramural athletic
programs to supplementing the various academic and
developmental programs. In addition, staff members super-
vise and enforce policies designed to create an atmo-
sphere conducive 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 Hall Director who
coordinates the area activities and ensures, through the
RAs, an environment for learning. The Assistant Director of
Housing for Residence Life is a professional staff member
and is responsible 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
participate in organizational activities which can play a
significant part in their educational, cultural, social, and
recreational life. The Inter Residence Hall Association was
established to help stimulate this participation. IRHA
represents the collective interests of all resident students.
The organization also serves as a channel of communica-
tion between residence area government councils, the
University community, 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. Currently, a telephone jack is convenient-
ly located in each student room except in Buckman Co-
op. Students have the option of providing their own
phone instrument or renting phone instruments from the
Division of Housing. Each room telephone jack provides
24-hour service on campus and within the Gainesville area;
cost of local service is included in the rental rate.
INFONET, the university approved discount long distance
service, is available on a voluntary basis to students and
can operate from any 395- phone. Long distance operator
assisted calls can also be made by students who possess
an AT&T Calling Card or wish to call collect. Only
INFONET will bill the students directly each month for long
distance charges.
FOOD SERVICE. Gator Dining Service, a private food
service operation, maintains 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. The cost of refrigerators is not
included in the room rent (except Beaty Towers, apart-
ments, and selected suites for four). In most cases, it is
best to make arrangements for a refrigerator after arriving
on campus when roommates can share the cost and
decide on available space in the room. Upon check-in, the
* resident may opt to rent a refrigerator for the room by
contracting for a refrigerator at the Area Office. Presently,
EMD Services, a privately owned rental company, and

it in person or by mail from the Off-Campus Housing
Office.
It is recommended that the student make a personal
inspection of the rental facility and have a conference

STUDENT FINANCIAL AFFAIRS
The Office for Student Financial Affairs (SFA) coordinates
and administers more than 100 federal, state, and institu-
tional student aid programs and provides financial assis-
tance and counseling to University of Florida students.
SFA awards aid to students according to financial need
- the difference between current educational costs and
what individual students can pay toward these costs. A
national needs analysis service, the College Scholarship
Service in Princeton, New Jersey, evaluates financial need
for UF students from information they and their families
supply on the Financial Aid Form.
When To Apply
Applications are available January 1 each year, and
students need to send their forms to the appropriate
processor as soon as possible after that date. Although
there is no application "deadline," students are considered
for aid according to the date their aid file becomes
complete (all required application data received) at Stu-
dent Financial Affairs. Most campus-based money is
awarded by April, so to be considered for this assistance
students should apply as early as possible after January 1.
A few programs'such as the Pell Grant program, Guar-
anteed Student Loans, and OPS employrrent are open for
application throughout the year (see Important Deadlines).
SFA cannot award financial aid to students until they
have been officially admitted to the University of Florida.
However, students should not wait to be admitted to
apply for aid but should- apply as soon as possible after
January 1.
How To Apply
Students must complete and submit a University of
Florida Application for Financial Aid to Student Financial

to the appropriate processor as soon as possible after
January 1. Students can apply for a Florida Student
Assistance Grant until April 1 each year and for a Pell

the deadline for applying for an insured loan for Summer
1984 is February 8, 1984. Individual colleges and private
organizations have their own deadlines for applying for
aid.
What Is Financial Aid?
Financial aid is money provided to students and their
families as either "gift aid" or "self-help" to help pay
college costs. "Gift aid," as the name implies, is free
money such as scholarships and grants. Students do not
have to repay these awards. "Self-help" programs include
loans and employment and are so-named because stu-
dents must repay loans and must work for money.
awarded through employment programs. Awards to stu-
dents consist of scholarships, grants, loans and work, singly
or as a package.
Graduate Aid
Graduate students at the University of Florida may be
eligible for part-time employment and loans through SFA
and/or for assistantships and fellowships through their
colleges. To apply for College Work Study and loans,
graduate students must follow the procedures in HOW TO
APPLY, including applying as early as possible. Off-campus
jobs and state-funded OPS job programs are not based on
need and are available through the Student Employment
Office in 20 Anderson Hall. For other graduate aid such as
fellowships and assistantships, students should apply
through the Dean of the Graduate School and the Dean's
office of their colleges.

Types of Aid
SCHOLARSHIPS are awarded based on academic per-
formance and financial need. Each year SFA awards about
300 scholarships, ranging from $200 to $800, to academi-
cally outstanding undergraduates with documented need.
Some scholarships are available to incoming freshmen
through the Office of Admissions. Individual colleges
within the university also offer scholarships to undergrad-
uates. For information on these, students should contact
the dean of their college. Many private donors also offer
scholarships, selecting the recipients) directly; students
should check with civic clubs, service organizations,
private corporations, and other resources in their home
community.
GRANTS are awarded to undergraduate students with
financial need. The three largest grant programs available
at UF are the federally-funded Pell Grant and Supplemental
Educational Opportunity Grant programs and the state-
funded Florida Student Assistance Grant. Awards range
from $200 to $2,000.
LOANS for UF students are long-term or short-term.
Long-term loans are low-interest (5-12 percent) with
payment deferred until the borrower graduates, withdraws
or drops to less than half-time status (six hours). Short-
term loans are emergency loans for temporary needs and
must be repaid by the first day of the last month of the


semester in which the money is borrowed, Through this
program, students can borrow up to $200 or the amount
of in-state fees.
PART-TIME EMPLOYMENT through the University is
offered to about 6,000 students each year. In addition,
many students work off-campus in the Gainesville commu-
nity. Students normally work 15-20 hours a week, 3 or 4
days a week, and earn at least minimum wage. Most hiring
departments help students arrange their working hours
around their academic schedule.
Student Employment Office
The SFA Student Employment Office in Room 20
Anderson Hall is a clearinghouse for part-time employ-
ment and keeps a current list of jobs available on and off
campus. The jobs list is updated weekly and copies are
posted on bulletin boards in Anderson Hall, the Reitz
Union, Weil Hall, Norman Hall, McCarty Hall, and Tigert
Hall. Currently, Student Employment administers two
employment programs: the federal College Work Study
Program (awarded to students as a part of their overall
financial aid package based on financial need) and the
state-funded Other Personnel Services Program which is
not based on need.
Financial Aid Mini-Course
Each year during January and February, SFA conducts
mini-courses on how to apply for aid. These workshops,
held on the University campus several times a week, are
open to all students. A financial aid counselor conducts
the sessions, presenting a slide show and helping students
fill out forms.'
Another resource for financial aid information is the
NEXUS telephone tape series. Tapes 402-A through 402-L
contain current information on financial aid programs at

Student Life

STUDENT ACTIVITIES AND
ORGANIZATIONS
Student Government: Student Government at the Uni-
versity, of Florida is a cooperative organization for advanc-
ing student interests and is based on mutual confidence
among and between the student body, the faculty, and
the administration. Considerable authority has been grant-
ed 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 responsibility commensurate with the
authority granted them. Student 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 administra-
tion of the Student Court. The University of Florida faculty
and staff feel that training in acceptance 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 distributed into the three branches: (1) legis-
lative, which is embodied in the Student Senate; (2)
judicial, which is embodied 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 Student Government, including 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
governments at all levels through conferences, lobbying,
research, and the advancement of proposals for change.
Students may apply for various positions within the
student government structure by contacting the Student
Government offices on the third floor of the J. Wayne
Reitz Union.
Student Senate: The Student Senate is composed of
representatives elected from the colleges and living areas
on the campus and, in general, acts as the Legislative
Branch of Student Government.
Religious Activities: The University oft Florida welcomes
the contributions of religious traditions to the campus
community. The churches, centers, and organizations
.associated -with the University offer a rich variety of
programs and ministries. There are also interdenominatio-
nal and non-denominational activities fostered by the
Department of Religion and the Campus Ministries Coop-
erative.
Social Fraternities: Thirty-one national social fraternities
have established chapters at the University in addition to
one national colony. The general work of the fraternities is

Nineteen women's sororities have established chapters
at the University. Fifteen have built chapter houses and
three live in other housing 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,

ACADEMIC HONESTY
The University of Florida expects students to be honest
in all of their University classwork. Therefore, students are
required to commit themselves to academic honesty by
signing the following statement as part of the admissions
process.
"I understand that the University of Florida expects its
students to be honest in all of their academic work. I
agree to adhere to this commitment to academic honesty,
and understand 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 obliga-
tion 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 campus community to notify appropriate officials of
any violations of regulations and to assist in their enforce-
ment. 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

VI. Off-Campus Conduct: When a student violates





STUDENT LIFE


Section V-A-15 of this Student Conduct Code by an
offense committed off the campus and which is not
associated with a University-connected activity, the disci-
plinary authority of the University will not be used merely
to duplicate the penalty 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 required by law to do so
or when the nature of the offense is such that in the
judgement of the Director of Student Judicial Affairs, the
continued presence of the student on campus is likely to
endanger the health, safety, or welfare of the University
community or its property; or the offense committed by
the student is of such a serious nature as to adversely
affect the student's suitability as a member of the
University community.
VII. Postponement of Hearing Due to Pending or
Possible Criminal or Civil Charges: If the student charged
with a violation of the Student Conduct Code, regardless
of which primary 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 probation br suspension, de-
pending upon the gravity of the offense. 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 a violation of the Student Conduct
Code desires to waive the right to a hearing by the
appropriate official or hearing body, and the student so
indicates in writing, the Director of Student Judicial Affairs,
provided he/she agrees to accept jurisdiction, may make a
determination of fact ard take appropriate action con-
cerning the alleged violation.
IX. Summary Hearing: In the event a student charged
with a violation of the Student Conduct Code, which in
the opinion of the Director of Student Judicial Affairs, if
proven, would not warrant a penalty in excess of two
semesters probation, and the student does not waive his
or her right to a hearing before the appropriate official or
hearing body, the Director of Student Judicial Affairs may
require a hearing to be held before the chairperson of the
Committee on Student Conduct or the chairperson's
designated representative rather than before the full
committee.
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 deter-
mine which judicial body shall hear the charge.
XI. Penalties: A student adjudicated guilty of violations
of the Student Conduct Code shall be subject to sanctions
commensurate with the offense and any aggravating and
mitigating circumstances, which may include one or more
of the following penalties, unless otherwise expressly
provided:
A. Reprimand The student is given formal written
notice and official recognition is taken of the offense
committed.
B. Conduct Probation The student is 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. In the event a student on conduct probation
is found in violation of the terms of such probation or of
the Student Conduct Code which includes the Academ-


ic Honesty Guidelines prior to the completion of the
probation period, he/she may receive expulsion or any
other lesser penalty. The duration of any probation
period or any conditions or penalty(ies) imposed for the
violation shall be in proportion to the seriousness of the
violation.
C. Suspension The student is required to leave the
University for a given or indefinite period of time, the
termination of which shall depend upon specified acts of
the student's own volition related to mitigation of the
offense committed.
D. Expulsion The student is deprived of his/her
opportunity to continue at the University in any status,
permanently.
E. Payment of Damages The student is required to
pay for damages to University property, provided that
such payment shall be limited to the actual cost of
repair or replacement of such property.
F. Reduced or Failing Grade The student is given a
reduced or failing grade for the class in which the
offense occurred for violations of the Academic Honesty
Guidelines, but only by the faculty member involved
and upon recommendation thereto.
XII. Appeal: Decisions regarding student conduct sanc-
tions recommended by the Student Honor Court and the
Residence Hall Conduct Board can be appealed to the
Director of Student Judicial Affairs. Decisions regarding
student conduct sanctions recommended by the Student
Conduct Committee and the Health Center Student
Conduct Standards Committee or imposed by the Director
of Student Judicial Affairs can be appealed to the Dean for
Student Services. Appeals to the Director of Student
Judicial Affairs and the Dean for Student Services must be
made in writing within two working days after notice of
last action taken, unless otherwise,agreed upon in writing
by the appellant and the person to whom the appeal is
directed. Appeal of the disciplinary adjudication including
any personal conferences between the appellant and the
reviewing authority must be completed within ten cal-
endar days of notice of last action taken, unless otherwise
agreed upon in writing by the appellant and the person to
whom the appeal is directed. Disciplinary sanctions which
may result in limits being placed on extracurricular
activities and/or registration, do not result in loss of those
privileges until any appeal requested has been completed.
If no appeal is requested, the final action with respect to
the above will take effect two business days after notice of
thd last action taken, unless otherwise agreed upon in
writing by the student and the authority taking the last
action.

registered in the University for the term in which the
candidate's final examination is given and at the time he
or she receives a degree.
13. Repeat Course Work: Credit will not be allowed on

with the 1983 Spring Term all students who enter college
for the first time must complete, with a grade of C or
higher, 12 hours in designated courses that involve
substantial writing. This requirement can be met by

a maximum load of 15 credits for a student who earned
an average below a C the preceding semester of atten-
dance. The minimum load for all undergraduate students is
12 hours. The minimum load for a six-week summer term
is 6, and for the twelve-week term 12.
Simultaneous enrollment.in correspondence courses or
extension work at another college or university is counted
in computing the maximum but not the minimum load.

of his or her dean, may register for less than the minimum
or more than the maximum load. After the late registra-
tion period closes, no student attending under the above
conditions 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.

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
University of Florida for a course which is a part of the
curriculum at the student's parent institution. This
requirement also applies if courses are available at the
parent institution which might be evaluated as equiva-
lent or acceptable substitutes for the University of
Florida course. The converse of these statements also
applies to University of Florida students registering for
courses at another institution.
c. Priority in assignment to classes at the University of
Florida 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
University 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 ensure that an official
transcript of work completed under a dual registration is
forwarded to the parent institution. Certification to Social
Security and Veterans Administration programs is also the
responsibility of the individual student who must request
each individual institution to furnish records as might be
necessary.

NONDEGREE REGISTRATION
A student not previously registered at the University of
Florida may, with college approval, register for one
semester only as a nondegree student. Members of the
faculty and staff and those with special permission from
their college may be permitted to register as nondegree
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 Satis-
factory. Failing grades are E Failure, I Incomplete,
U Unsatisfactory, 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





STUDENT ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


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 circumstances. A grade of H will not be
computed in a student's grade point average.
A symbol of W will be assigned for any course
dropped through the college after the end of the official
drop/add period and prior to the date for assigning a
WF grade. The W symbol is an official notation of an
action taken in a course and will appear on the
student's transcript.
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-average 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, respectively.
SATISFACTORY-UNSATISFACTORY GRADE OPTION
It is the University's desire to allow students to receive
as broad an education as possible. Therefore, students are
encouraged to take courses in disciplines in which they
may not, have the proper background. They may take
such coursework 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 average as computed by the University of Florida.
NOTE: Other agencies or institutions might count the
grade of U as a failing 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
officials.
Only one course will ordinarily be approved in any one
term. Approvals for exception to this policy must be
obtained 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 subsequently request that their instructors assign a
standard grade, but the converse is not permitted.

AVERAGES
1. Definitions: The term "average," as used in any
university regulations concerning probation or suspen-
sion, always refers to the average on work attempted at
the University 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 consideration the quality of the work done at
other institutions in meeting any average requirements
they may have.
2. How computed: Averages are determined by comput-
ing the ratio of grade points to semester hours recorded
as attempted. 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 repeated is counted as many times
as grades for it are recorded. 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
University 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 average.

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.
University expects and requires reasonable academic
progress from its students. Continuation of students who
have demonstrated a lack of the necessary ability,
preparation, industry, or maturity to benefit reasonably
from a program of university 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
regulations are directed toward enforcing the academic
standards of the University. The academic standards of the
university require both the maintenance of grade point
averages consistent with a reasonable chance of satisfac-
tory completion of the University programs and reasonable
conformance to the catalog description of the program of
study in which the student is engaged. Any college of the
University 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
satisfactory progress.
The conditions of academic probation are intended to:
(1) relate to quality of achievement below standards
required ultimately to graduate; (2) recognize unsatisfacto-
ry work at an early date; (3) be sufficiently significant to
make clear to the student, and the administration, the
shortcomings of the student's performance; (4) provide
occasion for counseling; (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 10.

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 10 or more, but less than 20.
Any student who is eligible to return to the University
after a suspension because of academic reasons will be


I




uLenerai

STUDENT ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


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
registered 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 she has a grade point deficit of less than 10.
A student's scholarship probation shall be continued as
long as he or she has a grade point deficit of 10 but less
than 20. If the grade point deficit places him or her in
another 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
removed when a student's grade point deficit has been
reduced 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
academic reasons is to remove from the University
community any student who would not ultimately meet
requirements for graduation if he or.she continued at his
or her current level of progress.
The conditions of academic suspensions are intended to
(1) select any student whose performance indicates that he
or she will not fulfill the requirements for graduation; (2)
encourage a student to leave the University as soon as a
high probability of failure is evident.
All Undergraduate Students:
A student with a grade point deficit of 20 or more in his
or her 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
deficit is 20 or more at the end of the term the student re-
enrolls, he or she will be suspended without the possibility
of reregistering except by committee action.


EARNING CREDIT
WHILE SUSPENDED
A student under any kind of suspension (academic or
conduct) at the University of Florida may not earn credit
toward a degree at the University of Florida by taking
work in residence at another institution or through
extension or correspondence courses.
However, a student who was suspended for academic
reasons and who has not yet earned the Associate of Arts
Certificate who subsequently graduates from an accredited
Florida community college may appeal to the Petitions
Committee 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 probation to that college or school. Credits
earned by such students while under suspension from the
University of Florida may be transferred in accordance
with other rules and regulations of the University of
Florida.

COLLEGE LEVEL ACADEMIC SKILLS
TEST AND COMMUNICATION -
COMPUTATION REQUIREMENT
The State of Florida has developed a test of college-level
communication and computation skills. The test is called
the College Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST).
The CLAST is designed to test the communication and
computation skills that are judged by state university and
community college faculty to be generally associated with
successful performance and progression through the
baccalaureate level. "The test is required by Florida statutes
and rules of the State Board of Education.
The CLAST is administered toward the end of the
sophomore year to university students as well as to
community college students who are completing Associate
of Arts degree programs and to community college
students who are completing Associate of Science degree
programs and are seeking admission to upper division
programs in state universities in Florida. Students who do
not satisfactorily complete the test will not be awarded
the Associate of Arts nor will they be admitted to upper
division status in state universities in Florida. The CLAST
requirements also apply to students transferring to state
universities in Florida from private colleges in Florida and
from out-of-state colleges.
The Office of Instructional Resources located at 1012
GPA, phone 392-1715, can tell you how and when to
apply to take the CLAST.
The Academic Advisemt ent Center located at 358 Little
Hall, phone 392-1521, can provide you with a list of CLAST
skills and can tell you where the communication and
computation skills are taught in the curriculum.
In addition to the CLAST the State Board of Education
requires completion of coursework in English and Math-
ematics. This Communication-Computation requirement
includes 12 semester hours of coursework in which the
student is required to demonstrate writing skills and 6
hours of mathematics coursework at the level of college
algebra or higher. Three (3) hours of the mathematics
requirement may be fulfilled by approved courses in
Statistics or Computer and Information Sciences. Specific
courses to meet the Communication-Computation re-
quirement can be found in the listing of Authorized
Courses for General Education.

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
ineligible for further registration at the University unless he
or she applies for a change of classification and is formally
admitted to a degree program. In addition, a student who
does not take CLAST or fulfill the Communication-Compu-
tation Requirement. by the completion of 60 semester
hours is not eligible to be admitted to the upper division.
All Undergraduate Students:
A student may be excluded from a program of study by
the College responsible for the program if the student fails
to maintain normal academic progress. Such exclusion
does not prohibit the student from enrolling in other
programs or colleges if he or she meets the requirements.





STUDENT ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


Graduate Students:
A graduate student may be denied further registration
in the University or in his or her graduate major when the
student's progress toward completion of his or her
planned graduate program becomes unsatisfactory. Unsat-
isfactory progress has been defined 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
receiving failing grades. A proportionate date will be
established for shortened terms. 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 student 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 exclusion regulations.
A student on scholarship probation who withdraws from
the University prior to the final date published in the
calendar 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
committee.

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 laboratories through this procedure will be
notified by notice posted in the department office. Such
students may be reinstated in the course or laboratory on
a space available basis if documented evidence excusing
the absences is presented 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
extracurricular activities. (A scholastic day is any day on
which regular classwork 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
rotated so that no student is absent from the campus for
more than 12 scholastic days.


A student who has been warned for absences or
unsatisfactory work in any class should not incur addition-
al absences in that course, even though he or she has not
been absent from the University for 12 scholastic days. It is
the responsibility of the student to see that his or her
classwork and attendance are satisfactory.
Student Responsibility: Students, themselves, remain
fully responsible for satisfying the entire range of academic
objectives as they are defined by the instructor in any
course.
Under University policy, students are not authorized to
attend class unless they are on the class roll or have been
approved to audit and have paid the audit fees.

RELIGIOUS HOLIDAYS:
BOARD OF REGENTS
POLICY STATEMENT
Board of Regents policy regarding observance of reli-
gious holidays follows.
1. Each student shall, upon notifying his/her instructor,
be excused from class to observe a religious holy day of
his/her faith.
2. While the student'will be held responsible for the
material covered in his/her absence, each student shall
be permitted a reasonable amount of time to make up
any work missed.
3. No major test, major class event, or major University
activity will be scheduled on a major religious holiday.
4. Professors and University administrators shall in no
way penalize students who are absent from academic or
social activities because of religious observance.
In regard to this Board of Regents' policy statement, the
University of Florida urges faculty and administrators not
to schedule exams or major events on evenings or days
that will be observed as holy days by a significant number
of students. Students who ask to be absent because of
religious reasons will not be required to provide second-
party certification that they are observant.

POSTBACCALAUREATE STUDENTS
The probation, suspension, and exclusion regulations
that apply to undergraduate students also apply to post-
baccalaureate students.

CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS
Students will be classified by the Registrar each semes-
ter as follows:
0. Special transient or other nondegree 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. Postbaccalaureate students: Degree-holding students
who have been admitted to postbaccalaureate 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,


j




General
STUDENT ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


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.

PETITIONS AND APPEALS
In case the operation of a student academic regulation
appears to result in an undue hardship on an individual
student, 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
committee on Student Petitions. Exceptions to the mini-
mum-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
records. 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
student educational records in accordance with State
University 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
information 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 other equivalent documentation or personal recog-
nition by custodian of 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.






STUDENT ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


Time Shortened

Degree Opportunities
The University of Florida provides numerous opportuni-
ties by which students may accelerate their academic
careers and reduce the overall length of time spent in
completing degree requirements. These opportunities are
explained below:
1. Early Admission: The Early Admission program allows
superior students to be admitted to the University
following completion of the Junior year in high school.
Applications are'encouraged and will be considered on
an individual 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
University of Florida and another institution. For example
a high school student could register at the University as
a nondegree student. The credits earned prior to high
school graduation could 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 nonde-
gree registration within the Student Academic Regula-
tions section.
University of Florida students may also earn additional
credit through the dual enrollment program. For more
information, 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
complete the traditional four-year span within three
years.
4. Year-Round Attendance: Students attending the
University 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 Florida. Credit received from one examination pro-
gram may not be duplicated by another. The various
credit by examination programs are explained below.
Advanced Placement Program: This credit by examina-
tion opportunity is sponsored by the College Entrance
Examination Board. Under this program, a student entering
the University 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 requirements listed below, the student may
receive University credit for courses covering similar


material.

College Level Examination Program (CLEP): The College
Level Examination Program is another type of credit by
examination opportunity sponsored by the College En-
trance Examination Board. By presenting appropriate
scores, students may receive as many as 30 semester
hours credit toward completion of general education
requirements. Their scores on the CLEP general examina-
tions must meet the minimums established by the State
University System. In addition, 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 accordance with the Articulation Agreement
(agreement between public community colleges and public
state universities on the acceptance of credit by transfer),
the University of Florida awards credit for CLEP examina-
tions based on the following scaled scores:


Minimum


Maximum


CLEP Score Semester
General Required for Hours
Examination Credit Credit
#English Comp. with Essay Scale Score 610 6
Social Sciences Scale Score 488 6
Biology Sub Score 50 3
Physical Sciences Sub Score 49 3
Humanities Scale Score 489 6
Mathematics Scale Score 497 6
#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 sample.


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
English Subject Examinations (Freshman English or English
Composition) are taken, it is imperative that the essay
option be taken if credit is to be'received for English. A
minimum score ensures that the essay portion of the exam
is eligible for review by UF staff evaluators. This score in
itself does not guarantee that credit will be received for
English. A favorable review must be received on the essay
portion of the exam. A minimum score of 47 is required
for College Composition and a minimum score of 47 is




General
STUDENT ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


required for Freshman English. The maximum credit
allowed for English credit, if the minimum score is
achieved and the essay is acceptable, equals 6 semester
hours.


Departmental Examinations: Departments may, at their
option, permit a student to receive credit through the
challenge of departmental course examinations. For specif-
ic information, contact the relevant department.





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 Accounting is to provide the technical ard 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 accounting, industrial accounting, nonprofit
accounting, and tax accounting.
The accountant deals with complex problems in the
business world. This requires a thorough knowledge of
business operations and the environment of business as
well as accounting knowledge. In addition to the demand-
ing technical skills, an ability .to communicate clearly in
both verbal and written form is essential. Interpersonal
skills and professional judgement are important elements
in the practice of accounting. Although accounting is
unusually demanding and requires a high achievement
motivation in order to succeed, the rewards are high.

SCHOLARSHIPS AND ASSISTANTSHIPS
Information about general financial aid can be obtained
from the Director of Student Financial Aid, University of
Florida, Gainesville, Florida 32611. To be considered for
scholarships awarded to fourth and fifth year accounting
students, application forms (available at the School of
Accounting offices) should be completed early in the
Spring Term.

resentation on faculty committees.

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 become involved in specific research projects on a
regular basis. Research projects occasionally provide a
similar opportunity for undergraduate students. The Center
publishes research results in a working paper series. For
information contact the Director of the Accounting

Florida, Gainesyille, Florida 32611.

PROGRAM OF STUDY
The recommended curriculum to prepare for a profes-
sional career in accounting is the five-year program
leading to the Master of Accounting degree. The five-year
program allows the student to concentrate in an account-
ing specialty in addition to providing knowledge of both
the basic accounting framework and the underlying
business and related disciplines. Details concerning the
five-year program including the specialization areas of
financial/auditing, managerial/cost, systems, and tax are
included in the Graduate School catalog which can be
obtained by writing the Director of Admissions, University

can also be obtained by contacting the School of
Accounting, University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida 32611.
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 accounting, business, and general education to
pursue a variety of career opportunities in accounting and
business and to apply to graduate and professional degree
programs in accounting, business, or law. Students wishing
to specialize in professional accounting should plan to
complete the final year of the five-year program.
,Prospective students are cautioned to become familiar
with the five-year requirement to sit for the Certified
Public Accountants Examination in the State of Florida.

program allows the student to concentrate in an account-
ing specialty in addition to providing knowledge of both
the basic accounting framework and the underlying
business and related disciplines. Details concerning the
five-year program including the specialization areas of
financial/auditing, managerial/cost, systems, and tax are
included in the Graduate School catalog which can be
obtained by writing the Director of Admissions, University

can also be obtained by contacting the School of
Accounting, University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida 32611.
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 accounting, business, and general education to
pursue a variety of career opportunities in accounting and
business and to apply to graduate and professional degree
programs in accounting, business, or law. Students wishing
to specialize in professional accounting should plan to
complete the final year of the five-year program.
,Prospective students are cautioned to become familiar
with the five-year requirement to sit for the Certified
Public Accountants Examination in the State of Florida.

minimum of 27 hoursof appropriately selected courses.
Some and possibly all of these hours will be in addition to
the requirements for the current degree sought by the
student. Up to seven hours of research credit, or its
equivalent, may be applied towards CTA requirements
when this research and experience has a clear relationship
to agriculture in developing countries. All candidates must
show a level of competence in an appropriate foreign
language, though no language hours will be counted in
the CTA.
The 27 hours of requirements are divided into Social
Studies and Agricultural Sciences. Nine hours are needed
in Social Studies, five of which must be area specific
courses. The Agricultural Sciences require 18 hours, made
up with 13 hours from natural sciences and five from
other agricultural sciences.
It would be desirable for candidates to have some
farming experience, preferably in the tropics. Candidates
without this experience will be encouraged to spend 3 to 4
months in institutions such as Escuela Agricola Pan
Americana (Honduras), CIAT (Colombia) or CATIE (Costa
Rica). They will receive up to seven nonfee credits for their
work there.
Students will work with their adviser and interdiscipli-
nary faculty committee of three members to select
appropriate courses to fulfill the objectives of the program.
Students interested in this program should contact the
Dean for Resident Instruction, College of Agriculture.
PEST MANAGEMENT AND PLANT PROTECTION
Students in the Pest Management and Plant Protection
Specialization will receive instruction in the principles of
Entomology, Nematology, Plant Pathology, and Weed
Science. An understanding of the component parts of the
crop-plant ecosystem as related to management of all
groups of pests through the application of biological,
chemical, and integrated systems compatible with a
quality environment will be provided.
Students who select the Pest Management and Plant
Protection Specialization will major in one of the following
programs in the College of Agriculture: Agronomy, Ento-
mology and Nematology, Fruit Crops, Ornamental Horti-
culture, Plant Pathology, Plant Sciences, or Vegetable
Crops. Students who complete the requirements for the
Bachelor of Science degree with this specialization should
find many employment opportunities in agri-business
enterprises or government agencies concerned with plant
pest management, crop production, and environmental
protection. Moreover, the successful completion of this
undergraduate program will place the student in an
excellent competitive position as a candidate for graduate
studies in any one of the departments cooperating in the
undergraduate major program at the University of Florida
or any other university.
An interested student should contact an academic
adviser in his/her department and must indicate (register)
with the chairman of the interdisciplinary committee on
systems of Pest Management and Plant Protection. The
following required courses should be completed in addi-
tion to the major program requirements. The requirements
of this specialization can usually be met through the
course requirements of the major program and a wise
choice of electives within the 128 credits required for the
Bachelor of Science in Agriculture.

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
minimum of 12 semester hours credit is required for the
minor. Courses required for the major cannot be counted'
toward the minor requirement. A minimum of three hours
outside the College of Agriculture is required.
The courses required for this minor will be determined

FOOD SCIENCE AND
HUMAN NUTRITION
The Food Science and Human Nutrition Department
offers three curricula, Food Science, Nutrition and Dietetics
and Nutrition Sciences. 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 Food Science curriculum is designed to utilize the
principles of chemistry, biochemistry, microbiology, engi-
neering, 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
include: chemical, microbiological, and nutritional prop-
erties of raw and processed foods; role of processing and
engineering in modifying food properties; food deteriora-
tion 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 processing, seafood processing, food
chemistry, food engineering, food microbiology, manage-
ment, food marketing, nutrition, public health, and con-
sumer protection. Cooperative programs are available with
the appropriate commodity departments for students
desiring to specialize in dairy, meat, poultry or fruit, and
vegetable processing. An excellent foundation for graduate
study and research in Food Science or related fields is also
provided.
The Nutrition and Dietetics curriculum is designed to
give students a foundation in nutrition and, if desired, for
dietetic internship upon graduation. The Nutrition and
Dietetics curriculum provides an excellent undergraduate
education for students planning to enter a graduate
program in human nutrition. Students preparing for.the
professions of medicine, dentistry, or veterinary medicine
normally complete the minimum program and additional

Colleges


College of Architecture

GENERAL STATEMENT
The College of Architecture, which was established as a
school in 1925, has grown to be one of the largest design
and construction institutions in the country. A unique
aspect of the college is the scope of its professional
disciplines which at the undergraduate level include:
Architecture, Building Construction, Interior Design, and
Landscape Architecture. Graduate programs are available
through the Department of Urban and Regional Planning,
the School of Building Construction, and the Department
of Architecture. The architecture graduate program includ-
es options in Architectural Design, Preservation, Structures,
and Environmental Technologies.
SThe College's teaching, research, and community service
philosophy stresses interdisciplinary work. A growing
number of required and elective courses are open, on a
space available basis, to all majors (e.g. ARC 1211, 1701,
3783, 4801; BCN 4012, 4227, 4471, 5528; IND 2100, 2130;
LAA 1920, 2710, 2711, 3713, 4935; URP 4000). In addition,
the first 2 years of design coursework are common to all
three undergraduate design disciplines (architecture, land-
scape architecture, and interior design). The College's
internal research award competition requires multidiscipli-
nary faculty teamwork and, in turn, involves students from
units throughout the College. Other research and service
projects conducted through the research centers and
institutes (described below) often entail multidisciplinary,
cross-campus student input and effort.'
The Architecture and Fine Arts Library and the Visual
Resources Center are the largest collections of their kind
in the Southeast. Together they provide books, govern-
ment documents, American and foreign periodicals, sub-
ject files, microtext, slides, photographs, reproductions,
and other materials for undergraduate and graduate
studies. The AFA Library also maintains its own Rare Book
Collection for scholarly research. Services include a
professional reference service ready to assist in guidance
and searches for information. Students may use additional
resources in the University Libraries system.


STUDENT AID
Students interested in part-time employment, assistant-
ships, fellowships, loans, prizes, and awards are referred to
individual departments and information provided by the
University Office of Student Financial Affairs.

RESEARCH CENTERS
The College contributes to community, state, regional,
and national efforts to conserve and improve the quality
of the natural and built environments through research
projects directed by the Florida Architecture and Building
Research Center (FABRIC), the Research and Education
Center for Architectural Preservation (RECAP), and the
Center for Tropical and Subtropical Architecture, Planning
and Construction (TROPARC). The college has established
research and training programs of national prominence
through the Preservation Institute: Nantucket and the
Preservation Institute: Caribbean. The .latter program,
directed by RECAP and TROPARC, is part of the College of
Architecture's drive to develop new links with institutions
in the Caribbean Basin and Latin America.

STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS
Student organizations take an active part in the
educational program of the College. Membership in the
professional organizations of each discipline is available to


the student chapters. Student chapters of the American
Institute of Architects and the American Society of Interior
Designers, Institute of Business Designers, the UF Chapter
of the American Society of Landscape Architects, the
Student Planning Association, the UF' Chapter of the
American Institute of Constructors, and the Student
Contractors and Builders Association are all represented.
Honorary societies of Tau Sigma Delta, Sigma Lambda
Alpha, Sigma Lambda Chi, and the Gargoyle Society are
also represented in addition to the Society for Black
Student Architects. The College recognizes the importance
of student involvement and encourages and assists partici-
pation with professional groups and societies.

REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION'
The University of Florida and the College of Architecture
encourage applications from qualified students of all
cultural, racial, religious, and ethnic groups. Listed herein
are the specific requirements for admission to this College.
It.should be understood that only minimum requirements
are given and that admission to the College is a selective
process. Having satisfied minimum requirements does not
automatically guarantee admission. Limitations in faculty,
staff, and facilities make it necessary that the College
establish a selective process for the admission of students.
Priority in admission shall be given to those applicants
who, in the judgement of the admissions committee, have
the greatest apparent potential for successful completion
of the program.
To be eligible for consideration for admission to the
College, the student must have reached junior status,
earned a minimum C average in all courses attempted
regardless of the type of coursework completed, and taken
the College Level Academic Skills Test (see page 132). If
preprofessional courses are a part of the total credits, a
minimum C average is required in these courses also.
Students admitted to the University at less than junior
status are in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences,
Lower Division, not the College of Architecture, and
admission in this manner does not in itself guarantee
space in the preprofessional architecture courses nor
eventual admission to the College. Students admitted as
juniors to Colleges other than the College of Architecture
have no priority for preprofessional or professional courses
and may be considered for enrollment on a space
available basis, after priority College of Architecture
students have been served.
Admission of students having junior status falls into two
categories: 1) those having completed all Lower Division
requirements and prepared to study at the third year
professional coursework levels and 2) those needing to
complete freshman/sophomore preprofessional courses.
Generally, transfer students from universities or community
colleges which do not offer approved preprofessional
programs find themselves in the latter category. These
students may require up to four semesters at the Universi-
ty of Florida to complete this work due to the sequential
nature of the courses.
An admissions review process is employed for all
applicants at this point. Criteria used in review may
include any or all of the following:
Quality of work completed
Achievement in preprofessional courses or courses
related to disciplines of study
Pattern of courses completed
Personal interview
Portfolio review
Work experience
Recommendations by teachers and/or employers
1. Curriculum in Architecture: Through an Admissions

enter the professional courses in the junior year.
Notification of the decision of the admissions com-
mittee shall be made prior to the close of the Spring
Semester for the junior class which begins the
following Fall.
3. Curriculum in Landscape Architecture: Transfer
students contemplating the professional degree pro-
gram must contact the Department Adviser to
determine admission timing and eligibility. Students
completing the predesign programs at Miami-Dade,
Broward, and St. Petersburg (Clearwater) Community
Colleges must complete LAA 2710 and LAA 2711
during the Summer term proceeding admission to
professional studies; these students must also have
the equivalent botany and physical science courses.
Transfer students from community colleges not offer-
ing an equivalent predesign program are urged to
begin their preprofessional course work in the Sum-
mer term in order to complete required classes 'in
three semesters. Calculus, botany, and physical sci-
ence requirements, in addition to general education
requirements,,can normally be fulfilled at the commu-
nity college. Students with Associate of Science
degrees must complete all required general education
and preprofessional coursework prior to admission to
professional studies.

I. CURRICULUM IN ARCHITECTURE
Leading to the degree Bachelor of Design (Architecture).
McRae, J.M., Chairman; Shaw, L. G., Undergraduate Pro-
gram Director.
The professional program in architecture, which is
accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting
Board, consists of both the undergraduate and graduate
curricula. The undergraduate curriculum leads to the
degree Bachelor of Design (Architecture). Although this is
not a professional degree, it is excellent preparation for
careers in the architectural field where registration is not a
requirement:
Completion of the two-year graduate curriculum leads
to the professional degree Master of Architecture, which
meets the educational requirements of Florida statutes for
architectural registration.
In the graduate program, optional courses of study are
in Architectural Design, Architectural Structures, Environ-
mental Technologies, and Architectural Preservation. These
options permit the student to study in an area of


particular interest; however, all options lead to the same
professional degree and each prepares the graduate for a
career in professional practice. For detailed information see
the Graduate School Catalog.
The program of study is included below to show a
typical sequence in which courses are taken. Some
courses in the first two years are offered in semesters in
addition to those shown. Consult the course description
section in the back of the catalog for precise information
on offerings.

II. CURRICULUM IN INTERIOR DESIGN
Leading to the degree of Bachelor of Design. McRae, J.M.,
Acting Chairman.
The four-year program in Interior Design is accredited
by the Foundation for Interior Design Education and
Research. The course of study has been developed for
those students who plan a career in the profession of
Interior Design. The curriculum is structured to provide a
knowledge of the principles of the humanities, social and
physical sciences, and the manner in which they are
integrated and applied in the design process to creatively
resolve problems of the interior environment. The interior
design faculty seeks to equip the student with a knowl-
edge of design techniques, materials, resources, and an
awareness of the interrelated professional responsibility of
environmental problems. Interior Design career opportuni-
ties are numerous due to the demand for professional
design services by businesses, corporations, community
organizations; and governmental agencies. Graduates of
this program often assume positions in interior design
offices, architectural firms, or generate their own practices.
All entering students must consult with the program
coordinator for course scheduling and sequencing. Interior
Design is a limited entry program; therefore, it is prudent
to consult the program coordinator.

III. CURRICULUM IN LANDSCAPE
ARCHITECTURE
H.H. Smith, Chairman and Adviser.
This curriculum leads to the first professional degree,
Bachelor of Landscape Architecture. The program is
accredited by the Landscape Architectural Accreditation
Board and is an essential first step toward legal identity in
Florida and other states which regulate the practice of
landscape architects. 'Students become familiar with the
art of design, planning or management, and the arrange-
ment of natural and man-made elements on the land
through application of cultural and scientific knowledge.
There is concern for resource conservation and steward-
ship and that the built environment serves useful and
enjoyable purposes. Graduates are employed by profes-
sional offices, municipal, state or federal recreation,
landscape architectural or planning agencies, and the
construction or horticultural industries. Graduates may
also continue in graduate programs at other institutions
throughout the country.
Since Landscape Architecture is a selective program,

SCHOOL OF BUILDING CONSTRUCTION


The School of Building

Construction

GENERAL STATEMENT
The School of Building Construction was established in
1976 but a curriculum in Building Construction in the
College of Architecture has been offered continuously
since 1935. While a few programs were begun before that,
none of them are still in operation today.
The UF program in 1977 was recognized by the
Associated General Contractors Education and Research
Foundation as outstanding in the United States. In 1981,
the School was the first to receive its five-year reaccredita-
tion from the American Council for Construction Educa-
tion.
Graduates of the UF School of Building Construction
begin work immediately as project managers, field engi-
neers, project schedulers, cost engineers, assistant superin-
tendents, quality controllers and estimators.
The School has a normal Upper Division enrollment of
260, plus 40 graduate students. Also, a Ph.D. program is
offered in conjunction with the College of Education.

SCHOLARSHIPS AND
ASSISTANTSHIPS
Information about general financial aid can be obtained
from the Office of Student Financial Affairs, University of
Florida, Gainesville, Florida. Information concerning schol-
arships available specifically for third and fourth year
Building Construction students can be obtained from the
School.

HONORARY AND PROFESSIONAL
ORGANIZATIONS

SIGMA LAMBDA CHI
The purpose of Sigma Lambda Chi is to recognize
outstanding students in Building Construction for scholas-
tic achievement and extracurricular activities. Semester
membership averages 30 active members. Sigma Lambda
Chi provides services to BCN students through academic
scholarships, plans for construction coursework, guest
lecturers, a job reference file, tutoring, and extracurricular
skill development courses. Sigma Lambda Chi provides a
channel of communication between students and out-
standing alumni in the construction industry.

AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF
CONSTRUCTORS
The Student Chapter of the American Institute of
Constructors is a professional organization which serves as
a bridge between students and professional constructors.
Membership is open to all Building Construction majors
- both undergraduate and graduate students.

STUDENT CONTRACTORS AND
BUILDERS ASSOCIATION
The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC)
actively supports the Student Contractors and Builders
Association whose purposes are to better the student's
awareness of the construction industry and to promote
he School of Building Construction to both the industry


and the community. Any Building Construction student
can and is encouraged to become a member.
The activities of this organization include inviting guest
speakers, organizing the Homecoming festivities, operating
the Building Construction test bank, carrying out commu-
nity service projects, and having semester social gather-
ings.

PROGRAM OF STUDY
This four-year program for a Bachelor of Building
Construction degree is for students who are interested in
preparing for professional careers in construction, manage-
ment, techniques, operations, and related areas in the
construction industry, to include the arts of communica-
tions and interpersonal relations, rather than in architectu-
ral and engineering design.
Graduate programs leading to the degrees of Master of
Science in Building Construction and Master of Building
Construction are offered, as well as a Ph.D. program in
conjunction with the College of Education.
The Freshman and Sophomore programs of study are
designed to provide easy transfer for junior and 'commu-
nity college graduates. With proper course planning,
transfer students with A.A. degrees may complete the
four-year degree program in four remaining semesters at
the University. Prospective junior and community college
transfer students should consult their advisers or write to
the School of Building Construction for a pre-Building
Construction program of local study.
Opportunities for advancement and increasing responsi-
bilities exist in all areas of the construction industry, a few
of which include land development; home building; public
building; industrialized building systems; commercial, in-
dustrial, marine, and heavy construction; underwater and
space age facilities, materials and equipment sales and
installations; and construction product research, devel-
opment, sales, and applications.

Colleges


The College of Business

Administration
The College of Business Administration of the University
of Florida was organized in 1926-1927 and includes
programs of study in accounting, economics, finance,
insurance, real estate and urban analysis, management
and administrative sciences, marketing, and computer and
information sciences.
The College's educational objectives are (a) to provide a
broad formal instructional foundation for responsible
participation in business, the professions, and government;
(b) to stimulate interest in social, economic, and civic
responsibilities; (c) to develop competence in making
business decisions and in evaluating policy; and (d) to offer
fields of specialization in business or economics and,
especially, to encourage intellectual inquiry.
The guiding principle of this College is a broad founda-
tion of study outside the college, which prepares the
student for specialization through limited concentration in
certain fields of business administration and economics. To
this end, each program of study is constructed around a
core of courses in economics and the major functional
areas of business.
Graduate programs in business administration and
economics are provided under the Graduate School of
Business Administration for advanced students with inter-
est in careers in teaching, research, or business. The
College participates in programs of adult and executive
development education.
In addition to the University computer center, the
College maintains a college computer center for instructio-
nal and research purposes.

SCHOLARSHIPS AND OTHER
FINANCIAL AID
Information about scholarships and other financial aid
for students in the College may be obtained from the
Director of Student Financial Aid, University of Florida,
Gainesville, Florida.
Information on graduate student financial support may.
be obtained from the Director of Graduate Studies,
Graduate School of Business Administration, University of
Florida, Gainesville, Florida.

MEMBERSHIP IN NATIONAL AND
REGIONAL ASSOCIATIONS
The College of Business Administration is an accredited
member of the American Assembly of.Collegiate Schools
of Business, the Southern Economic Association, the
Southern Business Administrative Association, and the
National Retail Merchants' Association. The baccalaureate
and MBA programs in both business and accounting are
accredited by the American Assembly of Collegiate
Schools of Business.

BETA GAMMA SIGMA
Election to this national honorary society is based on
scholarship and character. It fills the place in education for
business that Phi Beta Kappa holds in the field of classical
education. For further information, apply to the Office of
the Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Programs.

PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATIONS
Six professional fraternities are represented in the
College of Business Administration: Alpha Kappa Psi, Delta


Sigma Pi, and Phi Chi Theta in Business, Omicron Delta
Epsilon in economics, Alpha Mu Alpha in marketing, and
Rho Epsilon in real estate.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS
The College of Business Administration encourages
applications from qualified students of both sexes from all
cultural, racial, religious, and ethnic groups. Admission to
the College is a selective process and fulfilling minimum
requirements does not automatically guarantee admission.

Colleges


College of Dentistry

The College of Dentistry is one of the six colleges which
constitute the J. Hillis Miller Health Center. The College of
Dentistry, as well as the other units of the Health Center,
is an integral component, both geographically and func-
tionally, of the University of Florida. Many conjoint
projects between the College and other units of the
Health Center and University have been formulated and
implemented.
In 1957 the Florida Legislature authorized the devel-
opment of a College of Dentistry in Gainesville, but it was
not until the late 1960's that faculty members were
recruited and program development initiated.
The twelve departments which make up the College of
Dentistry are Basic Dental Sciences, Community Dentistry,
Dental Biomaterials, Dental Education, Endodontics, Oper-
ative Dentistry, Oral Medicine, Oral and Maxillofacial
Surgery, Orthodontics, Pediatric Dentistry, Periodontics,
and Prosthodontics. A modular curriculum has been
developed based on multidisciplinary teaching by these
departments. The curriculum is designed to permit stu-
dents flexibility and individualization in their program. It is
a competency-based curriculum in which behavioral
objectives, rather than time, serve as the primary
guidelines for student advancement. The curriculum is
flexible, but students must complete an appropriate
portion of the total curriculum each semester. Self-instruc-
tion constitutes a significant part of the teaching method-
ology.
The goals of this College are to prepare the graduate to
enter private dental practice, to enter graduate programs
of any of the dental specialties, to enter into research
activities, and to be prepared for a lifetime of continuing
education.
The Dental Sciences Building was first occupied in
August, 1975, and was officially dedicated March 6, 1976.
The first class of students was graduated in 1976. The
College offers the Doctor of Dental Medicine (D.M.D.)


degree. (The D.M.D. and D.D.S. degrees are synonymous.)
The College presently offers Advanced Educational pro-
grams in Dental Public Health, Orthodontics, Pediatric
Dentistry, and Periodontics. In addition, a one-year General
Practice Residency program and a three-year Oral and
Maxillofacial Surgery Residency program are available.
The College of Dentistry aspires to attract students of
the highest caliber into its various programs. High stan-
dards 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, integrity, 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, sexual,
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.
However, outstanding students may be accepted without
fulfilling the degree requirements, provided they show
evidence of sufficient preprofessional preparation for the
study of dentistry. Applicants with an overall B average as
a minimum will receive strongest consideration for admis-
sion to the College of Dentistry. A limited number of out-
of-state students, in proportion to the number in the
University as a whole, may be admitted. Applicants should
initiate the application process approximately 15 months
prior to anticipated enrollment by submitting an applica-
tion through the centralized American Association of
Dental Schools Application Service .(AADSAS), P.O. Box
4000, Iowa City, Iowa 52240.
Further detailed information will be found in the College
of Dentistry Bulletin. Copies may be obtained by writing to
the Office of Admissions, College of Dentistry, University
of Florida, Box J-445, JHMHC. Gainesville, Florida 32610.







COLLEGE OF EDUCATION


College of Education

GENERAL STATEMENT
The College of Education is the officially designated unit
of the University of Florida that's responsible for teacher
education. University teacher education programs are
approved by the State Department of Education and the
National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education.
The University of Florida has undergraduate programs
leading toward the preparation of teachers in Agricultural
and Extension Education through the College of Agricul-
ture; Art Education through the College of Fine Arts or the
College of Education; Health. Education and Physical
Education through the College of Physical Education,
Health and Recreation; Music Education through the
College of Fine Arts; the various areas of Secondary
Education through the College of Liberal Arts and Sci-
ences; and Elementary and Special Education through the
College of Education.
In the program areas of Agricultural and Extension
Education, 'Art Education, Health Education, Music Educa-
tion and Physical Education, students will be recommend-
ed for initial teacher certification upon the completion of
their undergraduate degrees. In the program areas of
elementary education, special education, and various areas
of secondary education, students must complete an
additional year of academic study in the College of
Education leading to the Master of Education degree prior
to recommendation for initial teacher certification.


PROTEACH
(A program for the Preparation of Professional Teachers)
Teaching is a more difficult and demanding profession,
today than ever before. Conditions teachers face in the
classroom are more complex and stressful than those in
the past. At the same time, parents, other adults, and
young people are increasingly aware that a sound educa-
tional background is essential to success in later life. The
bottom line is that more is expected of teachers than ever
before.
In response to this challenge, the faculty of the College
of Education has developed a new, experimental program
for the preparation of professional teachers in elementary
education, special education, and the various areas of
secondary education. PROTEACH (from PROfessional
TEACHer) is a strong, rigorous program consisting of five
years of intensive work in general background knowledge,
professional studies, and academic specialization designed
to culminate in a Master of Education degree.
The curriculum of PROTEACH incorporates the best
available information about effective teachers' knowledge,
skills, and personal attributes. The latest developments in
instructional approaches and new technologies are used. *
PROTEACH is not built upon the previous program but
upon a reconceptualization of what a beginning teacher
should know, should be able to do, and should be as a
model for youth. Distinguishing characteristics of PRO-
TEACH include an increase in coursework outside the
College of Education and expanded foundational studies
and clinical experiences.
Within the five-year teacher education program, El-
ementary Education majors are required to have 81-93
semester hours outside the College of Education, including
12-24 hours of specialized study in one or two academic
disciplines. Majors in Special Education are required to
have 70 hours outside the College of Education, including
18 hours in one academic discipline. Students in the
various subject areas of secondary education are required
to have an undergraduate major in the subject they are


planning to teach and will receive their Bachelor's degree
from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. They will
take 9 additional hours in their teaching field as a part of
their Master's degree from the College of Education.
All students in PROTEACH, regardless of their chosen
teaching field, take the expanded foundational studies in
education. These foundational studies include the social,
philosophical,- and historical foundations of education;
human growth and development; ethical principles gov-
erning teachers; legal provisions affecting education; the
nature of handicapped children in regular classrooms;
educational diagnosis and evaluation; interpersonal rela-
tions; learning and cognitive process in education; instruc-
tional design and implementation, and the use of
computers in the classroom.
The extensive clinical component of PROTEACH begins
in the third year and continues through the fifth year.
Students engage in early observation, supervised practice,
and a concluding internship in the public schools as well
as campus-based clinical experiences including micro-
teaching, simulation, and other controlled situations.
Methods of instruction and clinical experiences are con-
current and coordinated; academic and clinical aspects of
course objectives are planned together; and methods
instructors are also clinical supervisors.
Academically able students who are committed to
teaching are encouraged to become a part of this
challenging new professional program.

REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION

Colleges


College of Engineering

GENERAL STATEMENT
The engineer engages in creative design and construc-
tion and in research and development serving to bridge
between human needs and the storehouse of theoretical
knowledge. In applying science to the common purpose of
life, the engineer couples science with the management of
people, money, machines, and materials. Engineering
challenges the individual, stimulating ingenuity and re-
sourcefulness, and yielding a rewarding sense of creative
accomplishment.
The engineer deals with real problems in the real world.
This requires a thorough working knowledge of mathemat-
ics and the sciences as well as an understanding of the
legal, economic, and social restrictions of contemporary
society. Clear and precise communications, whether oral
or written, are required of the engineer when delivering
judgments, plans, and decisions. A sound knowledge of
the engineering field and of related disciplines is required
so that the engineer can work effectively with others -
other engineers, scientists, and technicians in fulfilling
engineering assignments. Above all, the engineer is ex-
pected to be a responsible citizen.
The various undergraduate programs in the College of
Engineering are founded on mathematics and the physical
sciences. Additional emphasis is placed upon the humani-
ties and social sciences to develop judgment, perspective,
and curiosity. Although many graduates continue their
formal education beyond the bachelor's degree, the
education of an engineer should not stop upon comple-
tion of a degree program: education, formal or otherwise,
is a lifelong process for the successful engineer.
The curricula of the College of Engineering are planned
to achieve these objectives and to provide a wide range of
choices to the student selecting a degree objective. The
department is the basic organizational unit within the
College of Engineering and has both academic and
administrative responsibilities for programs leading to the
bachelor's degree. Departments with baccalaureate degree
responsibilities and the bachelor's degrees they offer are:
Agricultural Engineering Department
Bachelor of Science in Engineering
(Agricultural Engineering)
Chemical Engineering Department

For information relative to graduate degrees in engi-
neering refer to the various curricula sections or the
Graduate School catalog.
The Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Ac-
creditation Board for Engineering and Technology (for-

Essential Preparation
Modern engineering education demands much in the
way of specific high school preparation not required in
other college programs. The beginning engineering student
should have a good understanding of the basic physical
sciences, a highly developed ability in mathematics, and
the competence to read rapidly and with comprehension.
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 geom etry .......................................... .. ............. ..............1
Trigonom etry ........................................................... /2
Chem istry..................................................... 1
Physics........................................................ ........................ 1
Desirable
Additional Mathematics............................. .................
Deficiencies in the above subjects may be overcome by
registering in certain foundation courses before proceeding
with parts of the regular engineering program.
The General Plan of Study
The study programs leading to the bachelors' degrees in
engineering, described under the separate headings on the
following pages, are carefully planned into an organized
sequence. The aggressive, strongly motivated student with
proper high school preparation can complete one of these
programs in about 4'/2 years, including a summer term, by
carrying course loads of 16 credit hours. Many students
will require more than this length of time.






COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING


Some students, for different reasons, are not prepared
to enter directly into one of the curricula described below.
For example, a student may have attended a high school
which did not offer all the preparatory courses necessary
for entry into an engineering program. Or possibly the
student's objectives changed late in the high school
program, resulting in a preparation deficient in areas
required of potential engineering students. In all such cases,
the time required to complete the degree requirements
can be expected to increase.
As a general rule, subjects basic to all fields of
engineering are studied while the student is enrolled in the
first two years of the University or in a pre-engineering
program of a community or junior college. Then, when
specialized study is taken in the third and later years in
the College of Engineering, the program of coursework can
be tailored to the student's interests and abilities.

FINANCIAL AID
Information about general financial aid can be obtained
from the Director of Student Financial Aid, University of
Florida, Gainesville, Florida. The College of Engineering
does not offer financial aid for students at the freshman or
sophomore level since students are not normally admitted
into the College until their junior year. The only exceptions
involve students who plan to major in -Agricultural
Engineering or Chemical Engineering and minority stu-
dents. The Agricultural Engineering Department and
Chemical Engineering Department have a few small
industry-supported scholarships for students at the fresh-
man level, and the Chemical Engineering Department also
has a few awards for students transferring at the junior
level. Minority students planning to major in Engineering
should contact the Director of Minority Affairs in the
College of Engineering for information about financial aid.
After a student is enrolled in the College, he or she may
apply for a scholarship. The awards, which are limited in
number, are made each.spring for the following academic
year. Most are based on financial need, as well as
scholastic performance. Applications are available from the
department counselors.
An emergency short-term loan fund is available through
the Dean's Office to assist students through emergency
situations.


HONORARY, PROFESSIONAL, AND
TECHNICAL SOCIETIES
Students in the-College of Engineering are encouraged
to participate in extracurricular activities including active
membership in honorary, professional, and technical
organizations both at the college and the departmental
level. Almost all of the nationally recognized engineering
organizations having student chapters are represented
including:
Alpha Epsilon (Agricultural Engineering Honor Society)
Alpha Nu Sigma (Nuclear Engineering Honor Society)
Alpha Pi Mu (Industrial & Systems Engineering Honor i
Society)
Alpha Sigma Mu (Metallurgical Engineering Honor
Society)

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS
The College of Engineering encourages applications from
all persons regardless of their sex, race, religion, or cultural
background.
Because of the limitations on space, facilities, and
number of faculty, the College of Engineering has had to
become a selective admission college. The two major
criteria for admission are grade point average and comple-
tion of prerequisite courses. In addition, students must
have taken the College Level Academic Skills Test (see
page 132). All applicants are referred to the College for
selection, with GPA being most important. In future terms
the minimum GPA will vary with number of applicants,
availability of space, and numbers of faculty in a given
program. Florida residents are given priority. Nonresidents
are admitted only after qualified resident applicants have
been admitted.
Specific requirements for admission to the College are
listed below.
Direct Admission: Requirements for direct admission to
the College are given in the Admissions section of this
catalog.
Students Classified UF: A student in a lower division
college can request transfer to the College of Engineering
any time after completion of the freshman year.
Many departments require substantial completion of the
mathematics, physics, chemistry, and English course se-
quences of the pre-engineering program, described under
Freshman and Sophomore Requirements below, for a
student to be considered for admission.
Transfer from Community and Junior Colleges: A stu-
dent in a community or junior college who has, completed
the associate degree or 60 semester hours of credit is
eligible to transfer directly into the College of Engineering.
Students who do not meet either of these criteria must
enroll in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences for at
least one semester before transferring into the College of
Engineering.
Students wishing to transfer into the College of Engi-
neering after completing the associate degree in a com-
munity or junior college should tailor their associate
degree program as follows:
1. Satisfy the general education requirements of the
community or junior college.
2. Take the following recommended coursework:
a. mathematics through analytic geometry, and
calculus of several variables 12 semester hours
b. chemistry including general chemistry and qual-
itative analysis 8 semester hours
c. general physics with calculus and laboratory 8
semester hours




Colleges
COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING


d. engineering graphics, if required in the proposed
major department.- 2 semester hours
e. biological sciences 3 semester hours
'3. Avoid taking technical education courses. Such
courses are not normally creditable towards an engi-
neering degree.
Departments with Restricted Admission: Because they
receive applications from many more students than they
can accommodate, several departments have established
admission standards above the minimum requirements for
the College of Engineering. These departments are:
Aerospace Engineering (see Engineering Sciences)
Chemical Engineering
Civil Engineering
Electrical Engineering
Computer and Information Sciences
Engineering Sciences
Industrial and Systems Engineering
Mechanical Engineering


FRESHMAN AND
SOPHOMORE REQUIREMENTS
The program below is described for students whose high
school preparation meets the criteria previously described.
The minimum course load for full-time students is 12
credit hours each semester, but most students take 14 to
16 credit hours. At this rate, it takes at least 41/2 years
including a summer term to earn a B.S. degree. It will take
somewhat longer for students who need preparation
courses before entering the program below.
In planning the physical science and mathematics
portion of the academic program, a freshman should talk
with a College of Engineering faculty adviser.
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
Engineering requires specific courses in fulfilling the Gener-
al Education requirements for these subject areas.

COLLEGE REGULATIONS
English Requirement: Responsibility for the correct and
effective use of his or her spoken and written English rests
primarily upon the student. Any instructor in the College
of Engineering may at any time, with the approval of the
Chairman of the Department and the Dean of the College
of Engineering, require a student who shows a deficiency
in English to complete additional courses over and above
the curriculum requirements for the degree.
Each student in the College is required to complete the
course ENC 3213, Technical Writing, with a grade of C or
better, after being classified as a 3EG Student.
Thesis: A thesis is not required of candidates for the
baccalaureate degree in the College of Engineering.
However, exceptional students may be granted permission
by the Dean of the College, upon recommendation of the
Chairman of the Department, to undertake a thesis in lieu
of required or elective work in the department in which
the student is enrolled. Not more than four semester hours
will be allowed for such thesis work.
Credit for Special Work.
1. Upon the recommendation of the Chairman of the
Department and the approval by the Dean, a student
during the course of study may do practical work under
approved supervision in industry. By submitting a
satisfactory report, based upon a previously approved
outline, and by passing an examination, college credit
may be received not to exceed three semester hours.
Students will register for the proper departmental course
to receive such credit.
2. Where it is determined by the department con-
cerned that an exceptional student may profit by
supplementing the regular program of coursework in a
particular area, the student may register for special
problems in the chosen field. Credit for such work
should not exceed six semester hours. To receive such
credit, the student must register for the departmental
course number 4905.
A student may not have more than eight semester
hours total for work industry, special problems, and High
Honors project.
Elective Credit: It is the policy of the College that
students classified 3EG and higher are not normally
allowed to use freshman level courses for technical and






COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING


nontechnical elective credit. Foreign language credits at
the freshman level may, within the discretion of the.
department, be credited as nontechnical electives, pro-
vided that the student presents at least two semesters of
work with a grade of C or better in the same language.
Grade Average Required for Graduation: The require-
ment for graduation with a Bachelor's degree is a grade
average of C or higher in all work taken after being
classified as a junior, as well as for all UF work, and
successful completion of all required courses.
Maintenance of Academic Standards: If at anytime after.
admission to the College of Engineering a student's college
grade point average falls below 2.00, the student will be
placed on college probation. A student may also be
placed on probation if normal academic progress is not
maintained in the program of study. The section of this
catalog on Student Academic Regulations authorizes any
college to set its own standards for exclusion of a student
who fails or refuses to maintain normal academic progress.
It is the policy of the College of Engineering that any
undergraduate student who withdraws from the University
for the second, time will be automatically placed upon
college probation which will continue until graduation.
Any student on college probation for this reason who
withdraws for a third time from the University may be
ineligible for further registration in the College of Engi-
neering. Failure to satisfactorily complete the terms of
probation will result in the ineligibility of the student for
further registration in the College of Engineering.
Advanced ROTC: Some engineering students may elect
to enroll in the advanced ROTC programs offered by the
Army, Navy, and the Air Force. Graduates of these
programs are commissioned as second lieutenants or
ensigns as described elsewhere in this catalog.
It is the policy of the Accreditation Board for Engi-
neering and Technology, which accredits engineering
curricula, that student enrollment in advanced ROTC
programs represents a second career objective quite apart
from that of professional engineering. Accordingly, ad-
vanced courses in Military Science are only acceptable on
a limited basis, with departmental approval, for credit as
technical or nontechnical electives toward a degree in
engineering.
Correspondence Courses: (See Student Academic Regu-
lations-"Degrees and Graduation.")
A student in the College will not be permitted to
register for and work on correspondence courses while
enrolled in the College unless special permission is
obtained from the Dean of the College and the Registrar.
A student on probation must have permission of the Dean
to register for correspondence courses when not enrolled
in the College. A student who has been suspended will not
be permitted to take correspondence courses for credit
until the suspension is removed. A grade of C or better is
required to receive credit for a correspondence course.
Dean's List:
Each semester there is compiled a Dean's List of those
students whose work for the preceding semester has been
of a high order. This recognition is accorded to students in
the College of Engineering who:
a. earn a minimum of 14 hours of credit during the
semester;
b. received a 3.2 average during the semester; and
c. have no grade below C for the semester.
Drop Policy: Students classified 1 and 2EC are allowed a
total of two drops after the published drop date. Similarly,
students classified 3, 4, 5, and 6EC are allowed a total of
two unrestricted drops. A student with an initial course
load of 15 credits or more will be permitted to drop a
course without penalty or use one of the free drops,
provided this is done by the end of the seventh week of


class and the total credits remaining are 12 or more. There
is no petition appeal from this policy.

HONOR STUDENTS
Honors: Students in the College of Engineering are
designated as Honor Students when they have met all the
following conditions:
1. have achieved a college grade point average of 3.30
or higher (college GPA is defined as all work taken after
being classified as a junior);
2. have been registered in the College for at least one
semester;
3. have completed at least 16 credit hours at the
University of Florida after being classified as 3EG or
higher;
4. have been recommended by the major department
after the departmental faculty have reviewed the
student's record for satisfactory conduct and academic
progress.
For honor students, the grade point average referred to
in condition 1 above is termed the honor point average.
Special consideration is given honor students who wish
to substitute courses, provided that they have maintained
the conditions for honor student designation. The student
petitions the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs for such
substitutions.
Graduation with honors requires, in addition to the
normal requirements for graduation,
1. completion of all work required by the major
department and a college grade point average of 3.30 or
higher;
2. recommendation of the major department.
High Honors: Certain honor students may be invited by
the faculty of the major department to participate in a
special program leading to graduation with high honors.
Eligibility for the high honors program requires:
1. a college honor point average of 3:50 or higher;
2. recommendation by the faculty of the major depart-
ment.
Participation in the high honors program requires that
the student:
1. accept in writing the invitation to participate in the
program no later than the end of the term before
graduation;
2. carry out a high honors project and submit a thesis
based on the project.
If the student accepts the invitation to participate in the
program, the Dean appoints a committee to oversee and
approve all stages of the thesis project. The committee,
recommended to the Dean by the Department Chairman,
is composed of two faculty members from the student's
major department and one faculty member from another
department of the University.
The thesis project is normally not waived unless the
student has an honor point average of 3.80 or higher, but
this is discretionary with the committee in exceptional
cases. In planning the student's program, the committee
takes into account the academic goals of the student. The
committee supervises the high honors project and/or the
oral examination; upon satisfactory completion of all
requirements, the committee recommends the candidate
to the faculty of the major department.
Graduation with High Honors requires (a) completion of
all required work of the major department and a college
honor point average of at last 3.50 and (b) recommenda-
tion of the major department.
When a high honors project is a part of the program,
credit may be obtained by registration in courses carrying
the prefix of the appropriate department. Not more than a
total of eight credit hours will be allowed for high honors
