UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG
THE UNIVERSITY RECORD
1986-87


I I

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, expenses, housing, academic regulations, and student life.

A student at the University registers each semester in one of 19 colleges or schools. The second section of the
catalog explains the programs in each of these academic units. Major fields of study, degrees offered, requirements
for admission or graduation for this unit, and other pertinent information are located here.

The second section should help the student determine an academic program for a bachelor's degree. Here you
learn about the individual departments of the colleges, something of the philosophy on which the curriculum is
based, and the career or competence toward which this training is aimed.

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

For example, ZOO 2014 is shorthand for the course Principles of Animal Biology. Following the title are the
letters F, S, SS meaning it is offered in each of the semesters-Fall, Spring and Summer. The course carries four
credit hours. It lists as prerequisites ZOO 2013C (Introductory Zoology Laboratory) and CHM 2042 and
CHM 2042L (General Chemistry), meaning they must be completed satisfactorily before registration for
ZOO 2014. A separate schedule of courses is printed each semester and used in conjunction with the catalog
during registration.

FOR ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS:
"Could I be admitted?" For admission requirements, refer to Admission
section in general section and to your specific
college section.

"How much does it cost?" See Expenses in general section.

"Where can I live?" Check Housing section.

"When do classes start? See University calendar and critical dates in front
What about vacations?" section.

"What programs are available? Look at descriptions of colleges in second
What courses can I take?" section. Check requirements for specific courses.

"Where can I find out about See Academic Regulations, general section.

suspension?"

"What could I major in and See college descriptions.

"What about financial aid?" See Student Affairs in general section.

FLORIDA'S 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 Gainesville, dedicated from its founding to serve as
a home away from home for college students, adds immeasur-
ably to the educational and social opportunities for students.
THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA was admitted in 1985 to the
.Association of American Universities (AAU), the most
prestigious organization in higher education. Headquartered in
Washington, D.C., the AAU is composed of North America's
finest higher education institutions, 54 of them in the U.S. and 2
in Canada. Those universities judged to be preeminent in grad-
uate and professional education and research are invited to
membership in the AAU and must receive a three-fourth's vote
of the body, which includes Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford,
MIT, Berkeley, Michigan, Southern California, and Columbia
among others. UF now joins its sister institutions-Duke, North
Carolina, Rice, Texas, Tulane, and Vanderbilt-as the outstand-
ing universities in the South.
THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA is a residential campus, with
rich resources available because of its size, that provides a learn-
ing 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, theatre productions, art shows, seminars,
athletic contests, lectures, and a myriad of other events featur-
ing 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 train-
ing 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 profes-
sional and postdoctoral-the University of Florida offers more
for its undergraduate students.
Undergraduates aspiring for graduate orprofessional 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
over 100 majors, almost all of them strengthened by correlative
graduate degree programs. This means students can enrich their
bachelor's degree programs with advanced 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-seven per cent of the university's
entering freshmen earned admission test scores above the
national mean. Over half the student enrollment in the univer-
sity's upper division colleges are transfers from Florida's com-
munity colleges and other institutions. They experience no dif-
ficulty competing academically with students who begin their
work at the University of Florida. The University of Florida
ranks nationally 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 admission to a
Florida state university may be admitted under special pro-
grams. These students, and any others who desire, are offered
special instructional programs to help them progress scholas-
tically. 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, Flori-
dians in the U.S. Congress and state Supreme Court justices.
Florida's most influential governmental, professional and
business persons have 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.
These are reasons behind the University of Florida's leader-
ship training success. The contained campus-in a larger com-
munity whose principal focus is on the University-provides
thousands of leadership opportunities. Student Government at
the University of Florida is one of the nation's most indepen-
dent and influential. Every college has its own student council.
Almost every committee 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 im-
plement. Students serve on advisory boards and councils in city
and county government. Hundreds of students are employed in
career-developing positions and serve internships in Gainesville
area institutions. More than 300 students organizations, includ-
ing fraternities and sororities, require full slates of officers. Vir-
tually 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 organization, providing companionship and assistance
to children, 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 problems-both aca-
demic and personal-as well as leadership training programs.
The University of Florida sees every student as a whole per-
son. It has planned its programs and activities accordingly.

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 con-
solidated 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 col-
leges. Since 1947, when the student body numbered 8,177
men and 601 women, UF has grown to more than 35,500,
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 diver-
sified 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 Mis-
sionary Alliance, Advent Christian, Jewish, Church of Latter
Day Saints, Church of the Nazarene, Assembly of God, Aposto-


lic Church -of Christ, Church of God, Disciples of Christ,
Pentecostal Holiness, United Church of Christ, and Unitarian-
Universalists. Several of these denominations maintain chapels
adjacent to the campus. These include St. Augustine Chapel'
(Catholic Student Center), the Baptist Student Union, Wesley
Foundation (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,


TRANSPORTATION
A schedule of daily bus service, with connections to all points
of the United States, is maintained by Southeastern Greyhound
Lines and Trailways Bus System. The Regional Transit system
serves the City of Gainesville. Eastern Airlines has daily flights
with connections to all parts of the U.S. Commuter airlines
serve major areas of the state.

UNITS SERVING ALL
COLLEGES AND SCHOOLS
THE INTERCOLLEGE DEPARTMENT OF COMPUTER AND
INFORMATION SCIENCES. During the last three decades elec-
tronic information processing machines with capabilities many
orders of magnitude beyond their predecessors have come into
being. Though still in their infancy, they are already extending
man's capability to solve problems in every field of human
activity. Toward this end the Intercollege Department of Com-
puter and Information Sciences was created in 1971. The de-
partment currently offers undergraduate and graduate degree
programs in the Colleges of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Business
Administration, Engineering, and an area of specialization in
the technical communications degree program in the College of
Journalism and Communications. Degree programs within
other colleges are under study.
Subject areas found within the CIS curricula include program-
ming, systems analysis, software development techniques,
information representation and transformation, language
translators, operating systems, computer organization, and
applications.
The background prepares the student for a wide range of
careers in the business, industrial, scientific, civic, and aca-
demic worlds wherein information flow and analysis is of
critical importance to decision making.
In addition to the degree programs, several service courses
are available for those who need experience in computer appli-
cations for proper career preparation. For further information,
contact the CIS department office in 512 Weil Hall.

Education, (7) Opera Workshop, and (8) Ensembles.
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 depart-
Sment 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 con-
cerning 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 offer-
ings and descriptions under the General Physical Education
heading in this catalog.

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. Under the administrative 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 evolutionary biology, sociobiology and ecology;
Anthropology is concerned with the study of human variation
and cultures, both historic and prehistoric; Interpretation is con-
cerned with the interpretation of knowledge through museum
education and exhibit techniques. Members of the scientific
and educational staff of the Museum hold dual appointments in'
appropriate teaching departments. Through these appointments
they participate in both the undergraduate and graduate teach-
ing programs and supervision of graduate students.
Scientific reports are published in the Bulletin of the Florida
State Museum, Biological Sciences, the Ripley P. Bullen Mono-
graphs in Anthropology and History, and in the Contributions
of the Florida State Museum, Anthropology arid 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, inverte-
brate 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 pub-
lishes the Bulletin of the Allyn Museum of Entomology and
sponsors the Karl Jordan Medal. The Allyn Collection serves as
a major source for taxonomic and biogeographic research by a
number of Florida State Museum and Department of Zoology
faculty and students, as well as a great many visiting entomol-
ogists from around the world.
The Florida State Herbarium is a unit of the Department of
Natural Sciences, Florida State Museum. It is an important sci-
entific resource in which some 250,000 specimens are curated.

port from the private sector to the University for both operating
and capital purposes. It is a private corporation organized to
hold funds for the benefit of the University, to invest them, and
to insure the maximum value of the University's private support.
THE UNIVERSITY GALLERY is an integral part of the College
of Fine Arts. The Gallery is located on the campus facing South-
west 13th Street (or U.S. 441). An atrium and a contemporary
sculptural fountain are two pleasing features of the Gallery's
distinctive architectural style. The Gallery, with 3000 square
feet of display space, is completely modern, air-conditioned,
and maintains a varied exhibition schedule of the visual arts
during the year. The content of exhibitions displayed in the
University Gallery range from the creations by traditional
masters through to the latest and most experimental works by
the modern avant garde. The minor arts of yesterday and today
along with the creations of oriental and primitive cultures form

THE UNIVERSITY BROADCAST FACILITY is operated by the
College of Journalism and Communications. It includes WUFT,
Channel 5, a public broadcasting television station (PBS);
WUFT-FM, a noncommercial radio station (NPR) 89.1 MHz;
and WRUF-AM, a commercial radio station (CBS) 850 KHz; and
WRUF-FM, a commercial FM station, (CBS) stereo, 103.7 MHz.
Approximately 100 students are employed in these broad-
casting operations. Thus, in addition to the broad academic
background provided in the University's classrooms and lab-
oratories, these work opportunities provide a valuable experi-
ence in day-to-day operations typical of the industry. Students
perform such functions as reporter, anchor-person, news pro-
ducer, recording engineer, director, cameraman, and announcer,
all under the guidance of professional broadcasters. The college
has earned a nationwide reputation for the demonstrated effec-
tiveness of this academic and work experience training.
WUFT-TV operates at the maximum power authorized for a
television station of its classification: 100,000 watts visual and
20,000 watts aural. The over-air broadcast signal encompasses
a 65-mile radius from the station's transmitter 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, re-
gional, and national awards for outstanding promotion and
advertising campaigns it has conducted in support of programs
and activities, and WUFT-TV consistently ranks at or near the
top in percentage of viewership compared to other public TV
stations in the nation.
WUFT-FM, with 100,000 watts of power, reaches 16 North
Central Florida counties. The only public radio station in that
area, WUFT-FM broadcasts on a 24-hour a day schedule, year
round. The station presents classical, jazz, and folk music, in
addition to news and public affairs information. The station pro-
vides a variety of on-air, production, and reporting experience
for broadcast majors of the College of Journalism and Com-
munications. These students are under the direct guidance of
professional public radio broadcasters. With a strong emphasis
on local production and programming, WUFT-FM is a satellite
member station of the National Public Radio and Florida Public
Radio Networks and aims to service and reflect the diverse

can Publishers, Inc.


ORGANIZED RESEARCH
THE DIVISION OF SPONSORED RESEARCH was established
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. Negotiations 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 bal-
anced 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 depart-
ments of detailed administrative and reporting duties connected
with some sponsored programs. The duties and responsibilities
of the Division, of course, do not supplant the prerogative of the
principal investigator who seeks sponsors for his own project
nor the responsibility of the investigator for the scientific integ-
rity of the project. In direct contacts between a principal investi-
gator and a potential sponsor, however, coordination with the
.Division is necessary to ensure uniformity in contract require-
ments and to avoid duplication 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, Agricul-
tural and Extension 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, Vege-
table Crops, and Preventive Medicine (College of Veterihary
Medicine). In addition, five units vital to its research programs,
namely: Editorial, Library, Business Service, and Centers for En-
vironmental 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 Educational Centers are
located at numerous locations having different climatic condi-
tions, soil types and crops. Intensive research is conducted in all
fields of agriculture such as citrus, vegetable, field crops, live-
stock, pastures, and many others. Agricultural Research and


Education Centers are located in Homestead, Belle Glade,
Bradenton, Lake Alfred, Quincy, Sanford, and Tallahassee
(Florida A & M University). A Research and Education Center is
also located at Welaka, Florida, and is concerned largely with
biological research programs and youth programs. Agricultural
Research Centers are located in Monticello, Ft. Pierce, Immok-
alee, 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 vege-
table producers and shippers, and with numerous Florida agri-
cultural 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 Ex-
periment Station in Gainesville. The Agricultural Experiment
Station cooperates closely with the Cooperative Extension Ser-
vice in providing research findings 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 Engineer-
ing. Its mandate is "to organize and promote the prosecution of
research projects of engineering and related sciences, with
special reference to such of these problems as are important to
the industries of Florida."
The College and the Station form a close interlocking relation-
ship 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, environmental 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 is makes good
teaching possible, exposes students to many important engi-
neering problems normally not encountered in a college pro-
gram, and helps the faculty better instill students with the quali-
fications necessary for the successful practice of their profes-
sion. Moreover, both undergraduate and graduate students fre-
quently find employment and research projects.
The Station receives a small but important portion of its oper-
ating 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 organizations. The Station has excel-
lent 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,
geotechnics, 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 management.
THE FLORIDA ARCHITECTURE AND BUILDING RESEARCH
CENTER, the research arm of the College of Architecture, pro-
motes, encourages, and coordinates research activities among
the college's five academic disciplines: Architecture, Building
Construction, Urban and Regional Planning, Landscape Archi-
tecture, and Interior Design. Principal, current research interests
of the Center include architectural acoustical modeling, energy
efficiency development codes, roofing, computer resource
mapping, central city redevelopment, architectural preserva-
tion, and construction management. The Center maintains co-
operative contacts with other departments on campus and with
institutions within the United States, Latin America, and the
Caribbean Basin. For information write: The Director, Florida
Architecture and Building Research Center, 360 ARCH Build-

THE FLORIDA WATER RESOURCES RESEARCH CENTER,
which is funded by the Department of the Interior, was estab-
lished in 1964 at the University of Florida as the result of the
passage of P.L. 88-379 The Water Resources Research Act of
1964 "to stimulate, sponsor, provide for, and supplement
present programs for conduct of research, investigation, experi-
ments, and the training of scientists in the fields of water and of
resources which affect water." The Center's Director operates
under the general policy guidance of an advisory committee
appointed by the President of the University. Research projects
administered by the Center and pertaining to the achievement
of adequate statewide water resource management, water quali-
ty, and water quantity are being conducted by professors in
various departments at the University of Florida and other col-
leges and universities in the State. Graduate assistants may be
employed on these projects or other activities of the Center.

INSTITUTE OF FOOD AND
AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES
THE INSTITUTE OF FOOD AND AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES
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 Flor-
ida Board of Control. This action consolidated into one overall
budgetary unit four previously separate budgetary units the
College of Agriculture, the Florida Agricultural Experiment Sta-
tions, 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 Extension Service. IFAS, through its unique organiza-
tion, 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 max-
imum 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 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 Resi-
dent Instfuction, 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 Col-
lege of Agriculture and the School of Forest Resources and Con-
servation 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 struc-
tured 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 Conservation
offers an undergraduate program which leads to the Bachelor of
Science in Forest Resources and Conservation. Graduate pro-
grams 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 develop-
ment as well as improving existing technology to enable Flor-
ida's agricultural industry to become more efficient, particularly


in reducing dependence on consumption of fossil fuels; to i-
prove consumer health and nutrition; and to improve the soci.il
and economic well-being of producers and consumers of agri-
cultural commodities 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 contained under THE
AGRICULTURAL EXPERIMENT STATION of the Organized
Research section.
.The Florida Cooperative Extension Service is administered by
IFAS in cooperation with the several Boards of County Commis-
sioners in the state and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Extension offices in all 67 counties are responsible for the trans-
fer and application of knowledge through nonresident educa-
tional programs. These programs are tailored to fit the needs of
the many audiences in agricultural production, marketing, and
utilization; home economics; community resource develop-
ment; 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 environmental damage, integrating environmental prac-
tices 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 administration, co-
ordination, 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 Agri-
culture established in 1965.

THE J. HILLS MILLER
HEALTH SCIENCE 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 Science
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 prac-
ticing 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




General

GENERAL INFORMATION


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 near-
by Veterans Administration Medical Center, plus a cooperative
educational program with 11 urban hospitals, 3 colleges in
Jacksonville, and educational affiliations with hospitals in Pen-
sacola 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 profes-
sions; the researcher; the educator; and the counselor. Students
learn that by training together, 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, treatment, and preven-
tion 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 uni-
versity, 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.

School, or Division of the University must be made to the Ad-
missions Section of the Office of the Registrar on the forms pre-
scribed and by the dates indicated below. It is quite proper to
correspond with Deans, Directors, or Department Chairper-
sons, but such contact with University Officers does not in any
way eliminate the necessity for filing a formal application in the
Office of the Registrar by the dates specified.
'How To Apply: An applicant should address a request to the
Admissions Section, Office of the Registrar, University of Flor-
:ida, asking for application forms. Forms and directions for com-
pletion of applications vary with the level of entry at the Univer-
sity and the applicant should indicate that forms are being
requested for admission as a Freshman, Undergraduate Trans-
fer, Postbaccalaureate, Graduate, Dental, Law, Medical,
Veterinary Medicine, or Special student, as the case might be.
IMPORTANT NOTE: An application for admission must be

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 instruc-
tions. 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 appli-
cants 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 arrangements for handicapped appli-
cants, and there are alternate admissions procedures for handi-
capped 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 applica-
tion form.
2. Satisfactory scores on achievement tests or aptitude tests,
as noted in the application instructions.
3. A satisfactory conduct record.
4. Students whose native language is not English must sub-
mit TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language)' scores in
addition to other required test scores.
NOTE: Board of Regents regulations provide that furnishing
false or fraudulent statements or information in connection with
an application for admission or residence affidavit may result in
disciplinary action, denial of 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 REGULATIONS section of
this catalog.
The specific requirements for admission to the University of
Florida for the first time as a Freshman, Undergraduate 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 ad-
mitted as exceptions to the minimum requirements. The Uni-
versity Admissions Committee is the agency at the University of
Florida that is responsible for the admission of undergraduate
students under this exception policy. For additional information
regarding this policy, contact the Director for Minority and Dis-
advantaged Admissions, 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 ad-
ministering all admissions to the University and its various com-
ponents including applicants approved as exceptions to the
minimum admission requirements set forth in this catalog.

tution. The deans of the graduate schools of the State univer-
sities are the coordinators 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.





General

ADMISSIONS


UNDERGRADUATE
INTERINSTITUTIONAL
REGISTRATION PROGRAM
The Undergraduate Interinstitutional Registration Program
enables students at State University System institutions 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, overseas study programs, and library col-
lections. Coursework taken under the Undergraduate Inter-
institutional Registration 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 appropriate dean at
the host institution.

PERSONAL HEALTH
HISTORY REQUIREMENT
A personal health history completed by you and reported on
forms supplied by the University Physician are required prior to
initial enrollment at the University of Florida. If your application
for admission is approved, the health history form will be for-
warded to you for you to complete and return to the University
Physician. Your form should be received by the University Phy-
sician 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 appli-
cations 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 avail-
able" basis only. The deadlines for receipt of applications for
other terms are listed in the University Calendar.
Admission of students is on a selective basis. The availability
of community junior colleges and other state universities in
Florida has caused the Board of Regents to assign to the Univer-
sity 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 sub-
sequently applying for admission to upper division and profes-
sional 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 desig-
nated to give priority to those applicants whose potential on the
basis of their record indicates the greatest likelihood of success
and the obtaining of maximum benefits from the Lower Divi-
sion program at the University of Florida.

A. REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION-FLORIDA STUDENTS
For consideration a student must meet the following
minimums:

6. A record of good conduct. Major or continuing difficulty
with school or other officials may make an applicant ineli-
gible 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 con-
sidered for admission. The applicant's overall academic back-
ground as manifested in these records will be considered in the
decision-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 appli-
cation. The University will do everything possible to accept all
qualified applicants who apply before the application deadline
date. If the number of qualified applicants exceeds the number
that the University is permitted to enroll, admission will be on a
selective basis. An applicant's total high school record includ-
ing 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 S
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 con-
sideration are essentially the same as for Florida students except
that priority in consideration for admission will be given to those

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 in-
dividual basis by the University's Admissions Committee. Ap-
plications 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.
2. An official transcript of the applicant's secondary school
record covering 9th, 10th, and 11th years. Generally, an over-
all 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 com-
posite 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 spe-
cific 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 Com-
mittee before a decision is made on the application. The Admis-
sions Office will advise the applicant if interviews will be re-
quired 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 Of-
fice.
The University of Florida provides numerous opportunities
other than Early Admission by which a student may accelerate
graduation. For additional information, please refer to the section

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 entering the University offers a
nationally graded examination as evidence of completion of a
college-level course taken in high school. Depending on the
results of the examination, the student may receive University
credit for courses covering similar material or exemption from
such courses without credit. Under the College Level Examina-
tion 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 en-
titled 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 deci-
sion. The student must certify that this is his only application


and this statement must be received by November 1, and, if
admitted, the student must make his commitment to attend the
University of Florida, accompanied by his housing payment, by
December 1.

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 im-
possible to furnish the necessary supporting records in time to
permit a decision for the term that admission is desired.
desired.
In this section are listed the general requirements for admis-
sion of undergraduate transfer students. It should be observed,
however, that ADMISSION TO THE UNIVERSITY IS A SELEC-
TIVE PROCESS AND SATISFYING THESE.GENERAL REQUIRE-
MENTS 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 considera-
tion of their enrollment within the college's established quotas.
A transfer applicant should refer to the General Information
and Colleges sections of this catalog for an explanation of the
academic organization of the .University,
If an applicant is accepted for admission, courses which
reasonably parallel the curriculum of the University of Florida
that were completed with grades of D or higher at other accred-
ited institutions are acceptable for transfer credit. It is the
perogative 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 col-
lege 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 direct-
ly from a Florida public junior college with the Associate of Arts
degree in a university parallel program. All other junior college
applicants and undergraduate transfer applicants from four-year
or upper division colleges and universities should consult Sec-
tion B which follows.
The University of Florida subscribes to the Articulation Agree-
ment between the State Universities and Public Junior Colleges
of Florida. Under this agreement, any graduate of a State ap-
proved, Florida public junior college is eligible for admission to
nonlimited access programs at the University if the student has
completed the university parallel program and received the




General

ADMISSIONS


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;
3. A grade point average of at least 2.0 on a 4.0 system on all
college level academic courses attempted.
By law, all applicants seeking admission to a program in
teacher education must submit scores on the Scholastic Apti-
tude 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 appli-
cants 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 considered
for admission at the Junior level to an Upper Division college.
Such students may be required to take additional preprofes-
sional 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 undergraduate
transfer applicants from other colleges or universities.

I. Requirements for Admission to the Lower Division
1. Eligible for admission as a beginning Freshman: An appli-
cant must have been eligible for admission to the University
of Florida as a beginning Freshman in order to be considered
for admission to the Lower Division as a transfer student. (See
section, ADMISSION AS A FRESHMAN.)
2. Good standing: An applicant must be in good standing
and eligible to return to any institution previously attended. A
student who for any reason will not be allowed to return to an
institution previously attended cannot be considered for
admission to the University of Florida.
3. Satisfactory record: An applicant must have an average of
C or higher (as computed by the University of Florida) on all
work attempted at each institution previously attended. No
application can be considered until complete official tran-
scripts of all the applicant's undergraduate work are in the
possession of the Admissions Office. An official transcript
must be furnished from each institution attended regardless of
length of attendance or credit earned. Official supplementary
transcripts are required, as soon as they are available, for any
work'completed after making application. Since an average of
C or higher is required for graduation from the University of
Florida, one who has failed to maintain this average at
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: the Scholastic Aptitude Test


(SAT) of the College Entrance Examination Board or the Ameri-
can College Testing Program (ACT). 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 qualifica-
tions, an applicant who has experienced serious or con-
tinuing 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 admis-
sion to an Upper Division College must satisfy the requirements
listed above for admission to the Lower Division. By law, all
applicants seeking admission to a program in teacher education
must submit scores on the Scholastic 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. 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 accept-
able 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 recommen-
dation 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 Divsion for a degree.
3. College Level Academic Skills Test: By law, all applicants
admitted in a degree-seeking status to an Upper Division Col-
lege at an institution in the State University System of Florida
must have satisfactorily completed the College Level Aca-
demic Skills Test (CLAST).


C. TRANSFER CREDIT POLICY
If an applicant is accepted for undergraduate transfer admis-
sion, courses completed at other regionally accredited institu-
tions 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 re-
quirements 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 student's
degree program at the University of Florida completed at non-
regionally 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 institu-
tions 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.

University Calendar; prospective students should check with
the appropriate department. Applications which meet minimum
standards are referred to the graduate selection committees of the
various colleges and departments for approval or disapproval.
To be admitted to graduate study in a given department, the

undergraduate average or Graduate Record Examination score
above those stated for the Graduate School may be required.
These criteria are on file in the Office of the Graduate School.
Some colleges and departments require a reading knowledge of


at least one foreign language. Exceptions to the above require-
ments are made only when these and other criteria including
letters of recommendation are reviewed and recommended by
the department and approved by the college and the Dean for
Graduate Studies and Research.
Unqualified admission to the Graduate School is dependent
upon the presentation of a baccalaureate degree from an
accredited college or university. No application will be con-
sidered unless the complete official transcript of all the appli-
cant's undergraduate and graduate work is in the possession of
the Registrar, and no transcript will be accepted as official
unless it is received directly from the Registrar of the institution
in which the work was done. Official supplementary transcripts
are required as soon as they are available for any work completed
after application for admission has been made. In general, no stu-
dent who is a graduate of a nonaccredited institution will be
considered for graduate study in any college or department of
the University.

for a given academic year, up to ten percent may be admitted as
exceptions. Students admitted as exceptions under the ten per-
cent waiver rule must present both an. upper-division grade
point average and Graduate Record Examination Aptitude Test
Score with their application and meet other criteria required by
the University, including excellent letters 6f recommendation

of Business Administration program must submit satisfactory
scores from the Graduate Management Admission Test before
their application for admission will be considered.
Foreign students, whose scores on the TOEFL and verbal por-
tion of the GRE are not indicative of adequate writing skills, are

decisions until requisite examination scores or final grade
records are available. Students may also be granted conditional
admission to ascertain their ability to pursue graduate work at
the University of Florida if previous grade records or Graduate
Record Examination scores are on the borderline of acceptability
or when specific prerequisite courses are required.
Students granted conditional admission should be notified by
the department of the conditions under which they are admit-
ted. When these conditions have been satisfied, the department
must notify the student in writing, sending a copy to the

ADMISSION TO
THE COLLEGE OF DENTISTRY
When to Apply: The Application Request Card for the
American Associafe of Dental Schools Application Service
(AADSAS) may be obtained after May 15 from the Office of
Admissions, College of Dentistry. The request card should be
sent directly to the AADSAS, P.O. Box 1003, Iowa City, Iowa
52240. Upon receiving the application materials from the
AADSAS, the completed forms and supporting documents must
be returned directly to the AADSAS no later than October 15 of
the year prior to anticipated enrollment in dental school. Failure
to meet this deadline will prevent the Dental Admissions Com-
mittee from evaluating your record.
The data compiled by the AADSAS will be carefully
evaluated by the Dental Admissions Committee and promising
applicants will be sent formal application forms which request
additional information. The submission of a preprofessional
committee evaluation or letters of recommendation from people
in academics will not be necessary until the formal application
forms are filed. The formal application forms and supporting
materials should be submitted as early as possible, but no later
than November 15 of each application year.
The College of Dentistry aspires to attract students of the
highest caliber into its various programs. High standards of
scholastic achievement, moral character, and motivation are ex-
pected 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 relation-
ship 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, 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 Dentistry. Applicants with an
overall B average as a minimum will receive strongest con-
sideration for admission to the College of Dentistry.
Every applicant must take the Dental Admission Test, pre-
ferably in the Spring preceding the submission of his/her 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 application materials and
Dental Admission Test scores by the Dental Admissions Com-
mittee, interviews with members of this Committee will be
arranged for competitive applicants.
(See also more detailed description in the College of Dentistry
bulletin.)

vance of the term he/she wishes to enter, in order to allow time
for additional evidence to be presented if it should be requested
by the Admissions Committee.
Special students may be admitted to the various schools and
colleges of the Upper Division only by approval of the University
Admissions Committee. Each case will be considered on an
individual basis. Applications for admission as a special student
must include: (1) records of previous educational experience
(high school or college transcripts); (2) a statement as to the type
of studies to be pursued; (3) a brief statement of the reasons for
selecting a special program in place of a regular one; (4)
satisfactory evidence of ability to pursue these studies; (5)
satisfactory scores on such ability or achievement tests as may
be prescribed in individual cases by the University Admissions
Committee.


ADMISSION AS
A TRANSIENT STUDENT
Subject to availability of faculty, space, and facilities, a
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 com-
plete work to transfer back to the parent institution. No evalua-
tion 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 students
and no application for admission is required. The appropriate
forms for enrolling as a NON-DEGREE student should be re-
quested from the Admissions Section, Office of the Registrar.
Since registration is subject to the availability of space, approval
to enroll as a non-degree student cannot be given prior to the
first day of classes in the term for which the student wishes to
enroll.


Credit earned in a NON-DEGREE status is not automatically
applicable to a University of Florida degree should the student
later be admitted in a regular status. Admission as a NON-
DEGREE student in no way implies future admission as a regular
student to the University of Florida.

nonrefundable application fee of $15 (U.S. currency). An appli-
cation will not be processed without the application fee. If you
find it difficult to submit the application fee because of currency
restrictions in your country, we suggest that you request a friend
or relative in the United States to submit the fee in your behalf.

ACADEMIC RECORDS
Consideration of an application for admission cannot be
given until ALL required credentials as indicated in the section
APPLYING FOR ADMISSION are received by the Admissions
Office. All documents must be accompanied by certified English
translations and become the property of the University. Creden-
tials of applicants who do not enroll will be destroyed and can-
not be returned or forwarded elsewhere.
IMPORTANT: Send all applications and credentials to the
Admissions Office, University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida,
32611, U.S.A.

NOTICE OF ADMISSION
If a student's application for admission to the University of
Florida is approved, an official notice of acceptance will be sent
by the University. Admission is for a SPECIFIC term. If the
student is unable to enroll for the term indicated in the notice of
acceptance, the Admissions Office should be informed immedi-
ately. If the student wishes to be considered for entrance to a
different term, the Admissions Office must be advised. Under
no circumstances 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 deci-
sion on an application for admission. Because of the limited
resources available in terms of faculty, staff, and physical
facilities, only those international students who submit
superior academic records can be approved 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 resident or a nonresident. A
"resident for tuition purposes" is a person who qualifies
for the in-state tuition rate; a "nonresident for tuition pur-
poses" is a person who does not qualify for the in-state
tuition rate.
(a) To be classified as a "resident for tuition purposes," a
person, or, if a dependent child, the child's parent or
parents, shall have established legal residence in Florida
and shall have maintained legal residence in Florida for at
least twelve (12) months immediately prior to his or her
qualification. A dependent child is a person who may be
claimed by his or her parent as a dependent under the
Federal Income Tax Code. Every applicant for admission
to a university shall be required to make a statement as to
the length of residence in the state and, shall also estab-
lish his or her presence, or, if a dependent child, the
presence of his or her parent or parents, in the state for the
purpose of maintaining a bona fide domicile in accor-
dance with the provisions of Section 240.1201(2)(b), Flor-
ida Statutes.
(b) With respect to a dependent child, the legal residence
of such individual's parent or parents shall be prima facie
evidence of the individual's legal residence in accordance
with the provisions of Section 240.1201(4), Florida
Statutes. Prima facie evidence may be reinforced or re-
butted by evidence of residency, age, and the general cir-
cumstances of the individual in accordance with the pro-
visions of Rule 6C-7.05(2).
(c) In making domiciliary determinations related to the
classification of persons as residents or nonresidents for
tuition purposes, the domicile of a married person, irre-
spective of sex, shall be determined in accordance with
the provisions of Section 240.1201(5), Florida Statutes.
(d) Any nonresident person, irrespective of sex, who mar-
ries a legal resident of this state or marries a person who
later becomes a legal resident, may, upon becoming a
legal resident of this state, accede to the benefit of the
spouse's immediately precedent duration as a legal resi-
dent for purposes of satisfying the 12-month durational re-
quirement.
(e) No person shall lose his or her resident status for
tuition purposes solely by reason of serving, or, if a
dependent child, by reason of the parent or parents serv-
ing, in the Armed Forces outside this state.
(f) A person who has been properly classified as a resi-
dent for tuition purposes, but who, while enrolled in an
institution of higher education in this state, loses resident
tuition status because the person, or, if a dependent child,
the parent or parents, establish domicile or legal resi-
dence elsewhere, shall continue to enjoy the in-state
tuition rate for a statutory grace period. This grace period
shall be measured in accordance with the provisions of


Section 240.1201(8), Florida Statutes.
(g) The legal residence of a dependent child whose
parents are divorced, separated, or otherwise living apart
shall be deemed to be Florida if either parent is a legal
resident of Florida, regardless of which parent is entitled
to claim, and does in fact claim, the minor as a dependent
pursuant.to federal individual income tax provisions.
(h) Any person who ceases to be enrolled at or graduates
from an institution of higher education while classified as
a resident for tuition purposes and who subsequently
abandons Florida domicile shall be permitted to reenroll
at an institution of higher education in this state as a resi-
dent for tuition purposes in accordance with the pro-
visions of Section 240.1201(10), Florida Statutes.
(i) A member of the Armed Forces on active duty sta-
tioned in Florida, and the spouse and dependents of such
member, shall be classified as residents for tuition pur-
poses.
(j) Full-time instructional and administrative personnel
employed by state public schools, community colleges,
and institutions of higher education, and the spouses and
dependent children of such individuals, shall be classified
as residents for tuition purposes.
(2) An individual shall not be classified as a resident for
tuition purposes and, thus, shall not be eligible to receive
the in-state tuition rate, until'the individual has provided
satisfactory evidence as to his or her legal residence and
domicile to appropriate university officials. In determin-
ing residence, the university shall require evidence such
as a voter registration, driver's license, automobile regis-
tration, location of bank account, rent receipts or any
other relevant materials as evidence that the applicant has
maintained 12 months residence immediately prior to
qualification. To determine if the student is a dependent
child, the university shall require evidence such as copies
of the aforementioned documents. In addition, the univer-
sity may require a notarized copy of the parent's IRS
return. If a nonresident wishes to qualify for resident
tuition status in accordance with Section (1)(d) above, the
applicant must present evidence of the spouse's legal resi-
dence with certified copies of the aforementioned docu-
ments. "Resident student" classification shall also be con-
strued 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 res-
ident student status is sought, or who have had their resi-
dent alien status approved by the United States Immigra-
tion and Naturalization Service, or who hold an Immigra-
tion and Naturalization Form 1-151,1-551 or a notice of an
approved adjustment of status application, or Cuban Na-
tionals or. Vietnamese Refugees or other refugees or
asylees so designated by the United States Immigration
and Naturalization Service who are considered as Resi-
dent Aliens, provided such students meet the residence
requirements stated above and comply with subsection
(4) below. The burden of establishing facts which justify
classification of a student as a resident and domiciliary
entitled to "resident for tuition purposes" registration
rates is on the applicant for such classification.
(3) In applying this policy:
(a) "Student" shall mean a person admitted to the institu-
tion, or a person allowed to register at the institution on a
space available basis.
(b) "Domicile" shall denote a person's true, fixed, and
permanent home, and to which whenever the person is
absent the person has the intention of returning.
(c) "Parent" shall mean an individual's father or mother,
or if there is a court appointed guardian or legal custodian
of the individual, other than the father or mother, it shall
mean the guardian or legal custodian.
(d) The term "dependent child," as used in this rule, is
the same as a dependent as defined in the Internal Revenue
Code of 1954.
(4) In all applications for admission or registration at the in-
stitution on a space available basis a "resident for tuition

purposes" applicant, or, if a dependent child, the parent
of the applicant, shall make and file with such application
a written statement, under oath, that the applicant is a
bona fide resident and domiciliary of the state of Florida,
entitled as such to classification as a "resident for tuition
purposes" under the terms and conditions prescribed for
residents and domiciliaries of the State of Florida. All
claims to "resident for tuition purposes" classification
must be supported by evidence as stated in 6C-7.05(1), (2)
if requested by the registering authority.
(5) A "nonresident" or, if a dependent child, the individual's
parent, after maintaining a legal residence and being a
bona fide domiciliary of Florida for twelve (12) months,
immediately prior to enrollment' and qualification as a
resident, rather than for the purpose of maintaining a
mere temporary residence or abode incident to enroll-
ment in an institution for higher education, may apply for
and be granted classification as a "resident for tuition pur-
poses"; provided, however, that those students who are
nonresident aliens or who are in the United States on a
nonimmigration visa will not be entitled to reclassifica-
tion. An application for reclassification as a "resident for
tuition purposes" shall comply with provisions of sub-
section (4) above. An applicant who has been classified as
a "nonresident for tuition purposes" 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 maintained residency in the state for the
twelve months immediately prior to qualification required
to establish residence for tuition purposes. In the absence
of such evidence, the applicant shall not be reclassified as
a "resident for tuition purposes." 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 documentation 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.
(6) Appeal from a determination denying "resident for tuition
purposes" status to applicant therefore may be initiated
after appropriate administrative remedies are exhausted
by the filing of a petition for review pursuant to Section
120.68 Florida Statutes.
(7) Any student granted status as a "resident for tuition pur-
poses," which status is based on a sworn statement which
is false shall, upon determination of such falsity, be sub-
ject to such disciplinary sanctions as may be imposed by
the president of the university.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENT SERVICES
The International Student Services Center assists international
students in adjusting to the changing lifestyle and study habits
in a new and sometimes perplexing environment. Special ser-
vices are provided related to foreign educational and cultural
backgrounds; language, legal, employment, academic, and per-
sonal matters; U.S. immigration and other government agency
responsibilities as aliens; and currency exchange. The focus is
on helping international students achieve their educational
goals, while providing an insight into the culture of the United
States through a 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 enlighten-
ment 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 understand-
ing of Blacks and an appreciation of Black contributors to
American society. The-center sponsors programs, exhibits and
related activities.

SERVICES FOR DISABLED STUDENTS
SThe Office for Student Services provides assistance for disabled
students. Services are varied .dependent on individual needs,
and include but are not limited to: special campus orientation,
registration assistance, securing auxilary learning aids, and
assistance in general University activities. Students with
disabilities are encouraged to contact this office to obtain any
needed assistance.

STUDENT HOUSING
The University of Florida offers its resident students a unique
and exciting residence hall program. It is our belief that living
on campus is a profitable educational experience that the
students will long remember. Our desire is to provide accom-
modations and programs to meet the needs of our students
while promoting the overall educational goals and objectives of
the University.
The University of Florida has a large resident population com-
posed ,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 backgrounds and social expe-
riences, 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 accommodations and
environments that best fit their needs.

GENERAL INFORMATION
All freshmen who are admitted to the University will receive a
H-.-l l ::i ..n Card with their formal letter of admission
Sr.:i \i n': .:,, .r. Office until housing facilities are full.
Thq,' ii.-p[^l,4.i 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 during the summer to be
eligible for Fall Semester on-campus housing. Entering students
are free to choose either on-campus or off-campus accommoda-
tions. Students who voluntarily contract 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

STUDENT AFFAIRS


to be eligible to reside in the residence halls. Full-time enroll-
ment 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: Assign-
ments Office, Division of Housing, University of Florida,
Gainesville, FL 32611, or (2) obtaining accommodations in
private housing. (See Off-Campus Housing).
All correspondence concerning application for University
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 beginning freshmen may be filed nine months prior
to the semester or summer term for which admission is being
sought. Prospective students are urged to apply as early as
possible because of the demand for housing.
For all students other than beginning freshmen, application
requests are considered first-come, first-served, on a space-
available basis.
Roommate requests will be considered if the individuals
wishing to room together submit their Housing Agreements
clearly indicating their desire to room together and elect the
same visitation choice and assignment options.
Disabled students are also offered housing on a first-come,
first-served, space-available basis. Accessible housing is
available for disabled 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, accom-
modating two students, with central floor bath facilities. Doubles
are found in every area except Beaty Towers and range from air-
conditioned units in Hume Hall, to nonair-conditioned
rooms with bay windows in Murphee. Typically, only a few
single rooms are available.
All permanent rooms have an individual closet, storage
space, dresser, bed and mattress, study desk, and chairs.
Room rates vary depending on such features as air condition-
ing, phone service, and floor space, See rental rate chart for
specific charges.
Beaty Towers provide apartment style living on campus.
These small two-bedroom apartments are fully contained with
their own bathroom, study, kitchen, and two separate bed-
rooms for four students. Each apartment is fully carpeted, air-
conditioned, and has a telephone jack.
The Murphee 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 lavora-
tory. The majority of rooms in this area are nonair-conditioned.
However, Sledd and Fletcher Halls, which comprise approxi-
mately 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 is also involved in a range of activities, from initiating
social and intramural athletic programs to -uppln'-nl.nrng he
various academic and developmental programs)nldraddition,,
staff members supervise and enforce policies de,i.,ned in < reade
an atmosphere conducive to learning and growth.
Each floor or section is supervised by an undergraduate Resi-
dent Assistant, the RA. Working in close conjunction with the
RA is a graduate Hall Director who coordinates the area activi-'
ties and ensures, through the RAs, an environment for learning.
The Assistant Director of Housing for Residence Life is a profes-


sional staff member who is responsible for the overall adminis-
trative 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 partici-
pate 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 in-
terests of all resident students. The organization also serves as a
channel of communication 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 educa-
tional activities for their fellow students.


GENERAL SERVICES
TELEPHONES. Currently, a telephone jack is conveniently
located in each student room except in Buckman Coop. Students
should provide their own phone. Each room telephone jack pro-
vides 24-hour service on campus and within the Gainesville area;
cost of local service is included in the rental rate. CampusNet, 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 CampusNet 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. Cafe-
terias are also located in Johnson Hall, the Reitz Student Union,
and the Medical Center. It is the policy of the University to pro-
vide well-prepared food at the lowest possible price.
REFRIGERATOR RENTAL. The cost of refrigerators is not in-
cluded in the room rent (except Beaty Towers, apartments, and
selected suites for four). In most cases, it is best to make arrange-
ments for a refrigerator after arriving on campus when room-
mates 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 authorized University service (Phone: 373-3985) provides
refrigerators to students. If students bring their own refrigerators,
they must make arrangements for installation and removal. No
refund will be granted if a student brings a refrigerator to a hall
already furnishing such units.
CUSTODIAL SERVICE. Each residence ,hall (except coops)
has a staff of experienced custodians assigned to do general
cleaning of public areas, bathrooms, lounges, and hallways.
Other specific tasks are done in order to maintain good house-
keeping throughout the halls. Student room cleaning is the
responsibility of each student.
INTERNAL SECURITY. Residence hall security is monitored
by the residence hall staff; external building security generally is
the responsibility of the University Police Department. Trained
Housing Division Security Assistants patrol the areas imme-
diately adjacent to the residence halls.
VENDING. Various vending machines are conveniently lo-
cated in all residence halls for the comfort and pleasure of
students desiring such services.
LAUNDRY FACILITIES. Coin-operated washers and dryers are
provided in each residence area. Most students provide their
own irons; however, some area governments provide irons on a
checkout basis.

administers more than 100 federal, state, and institutional
student aid programs and provides financial assistance and
counseling to University of Florida students.
SFA awards aid to students according to financial need the
difference between current educational costs and what individ-
ual 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 infor-
mation they and their families supply on the Financial Aid
Form.

need to send their forms to the appropriate processor as soon as
possible after that date. Although there is no application "dead-
line," students are considered for aid according to the date their
aid file becomes complete (all required application data re-
ceived) at Student 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





General

STUDENT AFFAIRS


programs such as the Pell Grant program, Guaranteed Student
Loans, and OPS employment are open for application through-
out the year (see Important Deadlines).
SFA cannot award financial aid to students until they have
been officially admitted to the University of Florida. However,

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 Affairs and a
College Scholarship Service (CSS) Financial Aid Form to the
CSS office in Princeton, NJ. Transfer students are also respon-
sible for a Financial Aid Transcript. When completing these

matically when they apply for admission. For applications and
detailed procedures for applying, write to Student Financial
Affairs, 111 Anderson Hall, University of Florida, Gainesville,
FL 32611. Applications also are available from most Florida.
community colleges and high school guidance offices.

Important Deadlines
Financial aid applications should be completed and sent 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 Grant through March 15 of the
following year. Guaranteed Student Loan deadlines are set by
semester. For instance, the on-time deadline for applying for an
insured loan for Summer 1986 is February 6, 1986. 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 scholar-
ships and grants. Students do not have to repay these awards.
"Self-help" programs include loans and employment and are
so-named because students 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 fol-
low 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 perfor-
mance and financial need. SFA awards a limited number of
scholarships to academically outstanding undergraduates with
documented need. Most academic achievement scholarships
are awarded through the Office of Admissions. Individual col-
leges within the university also offer scholarships to under-
graduates. For information on these, students should contact the
dean of their college. Many private donors also offer scholar-
ships, 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 finan-
cial 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 Stu-
dent 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 community. 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 Anderson Hall is a
clearinghouse for part-time employment and maintains a cur-
rent listing of on- and off-campus jobs. 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.

Information and Counseling
Each year during January and February, SFA conducts work-
shops on how to apply for aid. These workshops, held on the
University campus several times a week, are open to all stu-
dents. A financial aid counselor conducts the sessions, present-
ing 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 the University
of Florida. The telephone number for the NEXUS system is.

STUDENT ACTIVITIES AND
ORGANIZATIONS
Student Government: Student Government at the University
of Florida is a cooperative organization for advancing student
interests and is based on mutual confidence among and between
the student body, the faculty, and the administration. Consider-
able authority has been granted the student body for the regula-
tion 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
resources at its disposal to fulfill its mission, including the
allocation of approximately three million dollars per year in stu-
dent activity and service fees, substantial authority in the regula-
tion of co-curricular activities, and administration of the Student
Court. The University of Florida faculty and staff feel that train-
ing 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 con-
tinued 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) legislative, 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 Presi-
dent 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 Stu-
dent 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 of-
fices on the third floor of the J. Wayne Reitz Union.
Student Senate: The Student Senate is composed of represen-
tatives 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 of 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 interdenominational and non-denominational activities
fostered by the Department of Religion and the Campus Minis-
tries Cooperative.
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 supervised by the
Interfraternity Council, composed of the President of each
fraternity. The national fraternities at the University of Florida
are Alpha Epsilon Pi, Alpha Gamma Rho, Alpha Phi Alpha,
'Alpha Tau Omega, Beta Theta Pi, Chi Phi, Delta Chi, Delta

colony is Sigma Pi.
Nineteen women's sororities have established chapters at the
University. Fifteen have built chapter houses and four 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, Alpha Xi Delta, Alpha Epsilon Phi,
Alpha Kappa Alpha, Alpha Omicron Pi, Chi Omega, Delta

of their University classwork. Therefore, students are required
to commit themselves to academic honesty by signing the

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

This statement serves to remind students of the obligations
they assume as students at the University of Florida. Matters of
violations of academic honesty are adjudicated by the Student
Honor Court.

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 Direc-
tor of Student Judicial Affairs, the continued presence of the stu-
dent on campus is likely to interfere with the educational pro-
cess or the orderly operation of the University; the continued

General

STUDENT LIFE

member of the University community. If the Director of Student
Judicial Affairs determines that disciplinary action is warranted,

sity with respect to any such off-campus conduct shall be made

tion 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 find-
ings of the hearing such postponement may be granted provid-
ed the student agrees to accept conduct probation or suspen-
sion, depending 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 hear-
ing body, and the student so indicates in writing, the Director of
Student Judicial Affairs, provided he/she agrees to accept juris-
diction, may make a determination of fact and take appropriate
action concerning 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 chair-
person's designated representative rather than before the full
committee.
X. Conflict of jurisdiction: In the event that the offense is with-
in the jurisdiction of more than one primary judicial body, the
Director of Student Judicial Affairs shall determine which
judicial body shall hear the charge.
XI. Penalties: A student adjudicated guilty of violations of the
Student Conduct Code shall be subject to sanctions commen-
surate with the offense and any aggravating and mitigating cir-
cumstances, which may include one or more of the following
penalties, unless otherwise expressly provided:

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 viola-
tion of the'terms of such probation or of the Student Con-
duct Code which includes the Academic Honesty Guide-
lines 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 propor-
tion to the seriousness of the violation.
C. Suspension-The student is required to leave the Univer-
sity for a given or indefinite period of time, the termina-
tion of which shall depend upon specified acts of the stu-
dent'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 pay-


ment 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 recom-
mendation thereto.
XII. Appeal: Decisions regarding student conduct sanctions
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 calendar 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 extra-
curricular activities and/or registration, do not result in loss of
those privileges until any appeal request 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 the last
action taken, unless otherwise agreed upon in writing by the
student and the authority taking the last action.

dent Guide and the sections of the catalog containing regula-
tions of the separate colleges and schools. Each student should
become familiar with rules and regulations of the University
and is responsible for applying them as appropriate.

DEGREES AND GRADUATION
The University of Florida will confer the degree appropriate to
the course pursued under the following conditions:
1. Curriculum requirements: Certification by the dean of the
college concerned that all requirements of the course of study


as outlined in the college announcement, or its equivalent, as
determined by the faculty of the college offering the course,
have been completed.
2. Recommendation of the faculty of the college awarding the
degree.
3. Residence requirements: (a) The minimum residence
requirement for the baccalaureate degree is two semesters. (b)
Students are required to complete the last 30 credits applied
toward the baccalaureate degree during regular residence in the
college from which the student is to be graduated. Exception to
this regulation may be made only upon written petition approved
by the faculty of the college concerned. (c) For residence
requirements for degrees in the College of Law, Medicine, Den-
tistry, or Veterinary Medicine, see the catalog of each college.
(d) For residence requirements of the various graduate degrees,
see the Graduate School catalog.
4. Average Required: In order to secure a degree, a student
must have a C average or better in all credits required toward
that degree.
5. Two Degrees: Two degrees of the same rank, e.g., B.A. and
B.S. may be conferred upon the same individual provided that
the second degree represents at least 30 credits of additional
work, with the necessary qualitative and residence requirements.
6. Continuous Attendance: When a student's attendance is
continuous, graduation according to the curriculum under
which he or she entered is permitted, provided the courses
required are offered by the University. If some or all of the re-
quired courses are no longer offered, the faculty of the college
concerned will make such adjustments for the individual
students as are appropriate for the curriculum involved. As long
as a student attends the University as much as one semester (not
including summer terms) during any calendar year, his or her
residence is continuous.
7. Summer Term Enrollment: All students entering a university
in the State University System with less than 60 hours credit
shall be required to earn at least 9 credit hours prior to gradua-
tion by attendance at one or more summer terms. University
presidents may waive the application of this rule in cases of
unusual hardship to the individual.
8. Application For Degree: Students expecting to graduate
must file an application for the degree in the Registrar's Office
on or before the date indicated in the current University Calen-
dar. Students must apply in the semester in which they expect to
graduate, regardless of previous applications in previous
semesters.
9. Time Limit: To receive a degree a candidate must have com-
pleted: (a) all residence work required for graduation at least 24
hours prior to the scheduled meeting df the College Faculty
voting on the candidates for degrees; (b) all extension work at
least two weeks prior to the scheduled meeting of the College
Faculty voting on the candidates for degrees.
10. Time-Shortened Degree Opportunities: A variety of pro-
grams is offered by the University of Florida which may enable
students to shorten the length of the time necessary for them to
complete their degree requirements. These opportunities in-
clude several credit by examination programs, and other options.
For specific information, refer to the section Time Shortened
Degree Opportunities. Also refer to the college sections for ad-
ditional information.
11. Extension Work Permitted: (Note: Extension work as used
below refers to both extension classes and correspondence
study.)
a. Students may take a maximum of 12 credits of extension
work during any academic year.
b. Students may not take more than 9 credits of extension
work during a semester.
c. The amount of extension work which a student may apply
toward degree requirements may not exceed one-fourth of the
amount required for the degree. For additional or unique
restrictions on extension work allowed toward a degree,
students should refer to the appropriate section of this catalog
or consult with the dean of the college concerned.
d. Students may not take, by extension work, more than 12 of
the last 36 credits necessary for a baccalaureate degree.
e. Simultaneous registration in on-campus and extension






STUDENT ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


work is permitted provided that approval has been obtained
from the dean of the college in which the student is
registered.
12. Registration of Graduate Students: A student must be
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
repeated coursework if the course that is repeated contains
essentially the same course content as it did when the student
initially enrolled for the course. In addition, a student who has
taken work at an advanced level cannot receive credit for work
taken subsequently at a lower level.
14. Pending Charge of Academic Dishonesty or Code of Student
Conduct Violations: No degree will be conferred upon a stu-
dent against whom there is pending an unresolved charge of
either Academic Dishonesty or Code of Student Conduct viola-
tion where the penalty for such violation would likely be:
a. Suspension
b. Expulsion
c. Failing Grade
d. Any combination of the above until such time as the charge
Sis resolved and degree requirements are met.
15. College Level Academic Skills Test: Effective with the 1984
Fall Term, students seeking admission to the upper division
must satisfactorily complete the College Level Academic Skills
Test.
16. Communication-Computation Requirement: Beginning
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 selecting at least 12 hours from
among those English, Humanities, and Social Sciences General
Education courses which are listed under Authorized Courses
for General Education and which are marked with an asterisk.
:LEP credit can not be used to satisfy the writing requirement.
In addition, each student must satisfactorily complete, with a
grade of C or higher, 6 hours of coursework that involve
numerical analyses, 3 hours of which must be in a course that
goes under the general title of mathematics, at the level of col-
lege algebra or above. The other 3 hours may be in mathe-
matics, statistics, or appropriate courses in computer informa-
tion sciences. This requirement can be met by completing the
General Education requirement in mathematical sciences. The
Communication-Computation coursework must be satisfactori-
ly completed prior to earning 60 hours credit.


MAXIMUM AND MINIMUM LOAD
Some colleges have a maximum load which is stated in the
catalog. In the absence of such a statement, the general Univer-
sity regulation applies. This regulation allows a maximum load
of 15 credits for a student who earned an average below a C the
preceding semester of attendance. The minimum load for all
undergraduate students is 12 hours. 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.
At the time of registration, a student, upon the approval of his
or her dean, may register for less than the minimum or more
than the maximum load. After the late registration 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.


DUAL ENROLLMENT
1. Definition: Dual Enrollment, as used in this regulation, refers
to a student taking on-campus courses simultaneously at BOTH
the University of Florida and another institution.


2. Dual Enrollment will be permitted ONLY under the follow-
ing conditions:
a. Approval in writing for the dual enrollment must have
been secured by the student from the appropriate official at
EACH institution. A copy of such approval must be furnished
at the time of registration to the Registrar at the University of
Florida.
b. A student will not be permitted to register at the 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 equivalent 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 for-
warded 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, registerfor 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 Satisfactory.
Failing grades are E Failure, I Incomplete, U Unsatis-
factory, 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 unless a
change of grade is processed through the Registrar's Office.
In special situations where it is not possible to assign regu-
lar 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 require-
ment. C+ and C grades in 5000-level courses and above




General

STUDENT ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


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 encour-
aged 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 Unsatis-
factory. These grades become a part of a student's record but do
not count in the grade point average as computed by the Uni-
versity 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 suspension, 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 pur-
pose 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 re-
quirements they may have.
2. How computed: Averages are determined by computing
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 Xwith 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. How-
ever, if a course is repeated after an initial grade of C or higher
has been earned, the repeat grade and hours will not be com-
puted in the University of Florida grade point average. 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 Flor-
ida their grade point averages begin and their academic aver-
ages will be based upon work taken at the University of Flor-
ida. 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. Con-
tinuation 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 regula-
tions 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 satisfactory completion of the University
programs and reasonable conformance to the catalog descrip-
tion 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 regula-
tions 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 ulti-
mately to graduate; (2) recognize unsatisfactory work at an early
date; (3) be sufficiently significant to make clear to the student,
and the administration, the shortcomings of the student's per-
formance; (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 warn-
ing 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 pro-
bation 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 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.
Figuring Your CPA and Deficit Points

Given that:
A 4.0 points C 2.0 points
B+ 3.5 points D+= 1.5 points
B 3.0 points D 1.0 points
C+ 2.5 points E 0 points
Multiply grade value times the credit hours to get grade points.
Add total hours, and total grade points. Divide grade points by
hours. *S/U courses do not figure into hours or grade points.

Whenever you have less than a 2.00 GPA you have a grade
point deficit. Multiply your total hours carried for a grade by 2
(for 2.00 GPA) and subtract your total grade points to determine
your deficit. For instance, you have taken 100 hours for a grade.
You therefore need 200 grade points for a 2.00 GPA. If you only
have 196 grade points, you have a deficit of 4 points. Ex-






STUDENT ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


cept for I and X grades being replaced by D or D+, only grades
better than C will lower a deficit. Every credit of C + earned re-
moves .5 from a deficit (a C+ in a three-credit course removes
1.5 deficit points); every credit of B removes 1 deficit point, etc.


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 stu-
dent 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 satisfac-
tory 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 gradu-
ation if he or she continued at his or her current level of pro-
gress.
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 Univer-
sity 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 rea-
sons and who has not yet earned the Associate of Arts Certifi-
cate 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 sus-
pension 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 com-
munication and computation skills. The test is called the Col-
lege Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST).
The CLAST is designed to test the communication and com-
putation skills that are judged by state university and
community college faculty to be generally, associated with
successful performance and progression through the bacca-
laureate 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 Associ-
ate 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 Advisement 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 Mathematics prior to
earning 60 credit hours. This Communication-Computation re-
quirement 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 requirement can be found in the listing of Autho-
rized 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 at-
tempted 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 ful-
fill the Communication-Computation Requirement by the com-
pletion 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 main-
tain normal academic progress. Such exclusion does not pro-
hibit the student from enrolling in other programs or colleges if
he or she meets the requirements.
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 pro-
gram becomes unsatisfactory. Unsatisfactory 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.




generall

STUDENT ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


DROPPING COURSES

No student will be allowed to drop a course after the deadline
Sdate for each semester as published in the University Calendar.
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 with-
draws after the deadline date published in the University
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 automatically
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 class-
work is scheduled.)
The 12-day rule applies to individual members of the group
rather than to the group as a whole. Consequently, a schedule
of more than 12 days for any group should be 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 unsatisfac-
tory work in any class should not incure additional 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 objec-
tives 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 religious
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 administration 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 Uni-
versity of Florida urges faculty and administrators not to sched-
ule 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 postbacca-
laureate students.


CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS
Students will be classified by the Registrar each semester 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, wilJ 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 required 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 classi-
fied as 6.
7. A graduate student who is seeking a Master's degree will be
classified as 7.
8. A graduate student who has earned a Master's degree, or has
earned 36 or more hours while seeking a degree beyond the
Master's degree (but has not been admitted to doctoral candi-
dacy), will be classified as 8.
9. A graduate student who has been admitted to doctoral can-
didacy will be classified as 9.

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 pre-
sented 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 minimum-maximum load regulation






STUDENT ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


are presented to the school or coflege 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 Com-
mittee require any college or school to grant a degree by waiv-
ing 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.
SInformation which can be releaed to the public on any stu-
dent is name; class, college, and major; dates of attendance;
degrees) earned; awards received; local and permanent ad-
dress, and telephone number.
In general, a present or former student has the right to per-
sonally review his or her own educational records for informa-
tion 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 docu-
mentation or personal recognition 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 of older may apply for a waiver of payment of auditor's
course fees. Procedures for auditing courses are available at the
Registrar's Office,










Time Shortened

Degree Opportunities

The University of Florida provides numerous opportunities 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 Univer-
sity 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 nondegree registration within the Student Aca-
demic Regulations section.
University of .Florida students may also earn additional
credit through the dual enrollment program. For more infor-
mation, 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 day 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 program may not be
duplicated by another. The various credit by examination
programs are explained below.
Advanced Placement Program: This credit by examination
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 comple-
tion 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 Entrance Examination
Board. By presenting appropriate scores, students may receive
as many as 30 semester hours credit toward completion of gen-
eral education requirements. Their scores on the CLEP general
examinations 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 period-
ically 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 univer-
sities on the acceptance of credit by transfer), the University of
Florida awards credit for CLEP examinations based on the fol-
lowing scaled scores:

*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
6 certain CLEP subject area examinations. The maximum amount
6 of credit that may be earned or transferred under the CLEP pro-
gram, both general and subject examinations combined, is 45
semester hours or 67.5 quarter hours. If English Subject Exam-
6 nations (Freshman English or English Composition) are taken, it
is imperative that the essay option be taken if credit is to be
6 received for English. A minimum score ensures that the essay
portion of the exam is eligible for review by UF staff evaluators.
6 This score in itself does not guarantee that credit will be re-
ceived for English. A favorable review must be received on the
6 essay portion of the exam. A minimum score of 51 is required
6 for College Composition and a minimum score of 51 is required
for Freshman English. The maximum credit allowed for English
6 credit, if the minimum score is achieved and the essay is accept-
able, equals 6 semester hours.

6 Department Examinations: Departments may, at their option,
6 permit a student to receive credit through the challenge of
3 departmental course examinations. For specific information,
contact the relevant department.

GENERAL INFORMATION FOR
FRESHMEN AND SOPHOMORES
(ADMINISTERED BY THE COLLEGE OF
LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES)


General Statement
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is the gateway
college for entering freshmen and other students with fewer
than 64 credits, providing for their academic advisement and
their general education. It also provides advanced education
leading toward degrees in a variety of disciplinary and cross-
disciplinary fields in arts and sciences.
Entering freshmen are classified UF. They retain this classifi-
cation up to but not beyond 80 attempted credits. Students
should apply for admission to the college of their major at the
appropriate point, usually 64 credits but earlier in the case of
some colleges. All students who attained junior standing (60
semester hours) after the end of the Fall 1982 term are required
to take the College Level Academic Skills Test. Each college
specifies admission requirements in its section of the catalog.


Associate of Arts Certificates
To be eligible to receive the Associate of Arts certificate,
students must complete a General Education program. The
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences awards the Associate of
Arts certificate for the University.
The Associate of Arts certificate will be awarded upon satis-
factory completion of:
1. 64 credits including authorized credits in General Education
as indicated for the student's major (At least 36 of the credits,
including 20 hours of General Education courses, must have
been completed at the University of Florida)
2. An overall C average
3. The College Level Academic Skills Test
4. Required Courses in Communication and Computation
Skills.
Application forms for the Associate of Arts certificate are
available from the Office of the Registrar and should be re-
turned to the Office of the Registrar.


College Level Academic Skills Test
Students must take the College Level Academic Skills Test
(CLAST). Starting with the 1984 Fall Semester awarding of AA
certificates and registration after earning 60 hours will be
contingent upon students' making passing scores on the tests.


Required Courses in Communication
and Computation Skills

Students who entered college Spring 1983 or later must com-
plete with a grade of C or higher 12 hours in designated courses
that involve substantial writing. This requirement can be met by
selecting at least 12 hours from among those English,
Humanities, and Social Sciences General Education courses
which are listed under Authorized Courses for General Educa-
tion and which are marked with an asterisk. The asterisks apply
to courses in a given academic year and are subject to change in
any given year. Students, therefore, should always be guided by
the Catalog and Schedule of Courses for the current year in


selecting general education courses and the designated re-
quired courses in Communication and Computation skills.
CLEP credit cannot be used to satisfy the writing requirement. In
addition, each student must complete with a grade of C or
higher six hours of courses that involve computational skills.
Three of these hours must be in a Mathematics course with the
remaining three in acceptable courses in Mathematics,
Statistics, Computer Science, or PHI 2100. The courses accept-
able for the requirement are identical to those authorized for the
General Education Mathematical Sciences requirement.



GENERAL EDUCATION

General Statement
The purpose of general education at the University of Florida
is to lay a foundation for lifelong enrichment of the human
experience and for lifelong contribution to society. The objec-
tive is to encourage all-around development of students as indi-
viduals and as members of society so they may bring balance
and perception to every field of their activity.
In summary, the goal of general education at the University of
Florida is to prepare students:
1. To think clearly and independently in fields outside their
fields of specialty.
2. To express ideas effectively in speech and in writing.
3. To develop a basic understanding of mathematics as
language.
4. To gain an understanding of people and the complexity of
societies, both their own and others.
5. To develop aesthetic interest and sensibility.
6. To gain an understanding of the scientific method and the
societal consequences of research as exemplified by biolog-
ical and physical sciences.



General Education Requirements
The General Education requirements include (a) Basic Cul-
tural Skills (English and Mathematics), (b) Social and Behavioral
Sciences, (c) Natural Sciences, and (d) the Humanities. All
students will take a minimum of 39 semester hours of credit
from lists of courses especially constructed to provide intellec-
tual balance and breadth.
In planning each semester's program students should balance
general and professional courses, science and nonscience
courses. All students should take care to make progress in ful-
filling their General Education requirements even though they
may be sampling courses in specific majors or enrolling in
required preprofessional courses. Typically students complete
the greater part of their General Education in the first two years
while also taking the preprofessional courses specified for their
majors.
In selecting courses students should study course descriptions
in the back of the catalog, since course titles alone give
insufficient information. Freshmen and sophomores are
cautioned not to take courses for which they may not be
prepared. Where prerequisites are stated, they must be adhered
to. Students should consult college and departmental advisers
as to whether particular General Education courses hereafter
listed may be used to satisfy college distribution and major
preprofessional requirements.
The Director of the Honors Program in the College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences is authorized to approve for each honors stu-
dent up to 12 hours of freshman and sophomore Honors
Seminars IDH 2931 and IDH 3931 to meet General Education
requirements in appropriate General Education distribution
areas.

ACADEMIC ADVISEMENT
Initial registration as a freshman for each Fall class is
conducted during the preceding summer months. Students and
their parents have an opportunity to attend one of fifteen
two-day programs. Notices concerning this are mailed in the
late Spring to those students who have been admitted by the
University Admissions Office. At these Summer Registration
Programs, students and parents attend sessions relating to
career choice, student activities, helping services, and course
selection. Each student meets with an academic adviser who
assists in selecting courses to take in the Fall.
Those Fall students who cannot attend a Summer Registration
Program confer with academic advisers as a part of the registra-
.tion period held in the week prior to the beginning of classes in
the Fall. Students entering college in the Spring or Summer
semesters also have advisement conferences as part of the
registration period prior to classes.
In the latter part of each semester students register for their
next semester. Again academic advisers are available to discuss
course selection. It is expected that students shall accept re-
sponsibility for fulfilling curricula requirements as stated in the
catalog, and students who are making successful progress are
not required to see an advsier when registering. Students who
are changing majors or who are not maintaining a "C" average
are required to talk to an adviser about course selection.
In the first few days of each semester (see deadlines in the
University Calendar printed in the front of this catalog) students
should review their course selection and add or drop courses if
needed to make a reasonable load for the semester, in view of
past grades and current goals. If during the semester students
feel they must drop a course because of illness or other emer-





Colleges

agency, they will find academic advisers available for discussion
of the problem. Advisers are also available during regular
business hours to help students define any other academic
problems and find corrective measures. Please come to the
Academic Advisement Center, 358 Little Hall.


HONORS PROGRAM
This is an invitational program for students who have shown
potential for superior academic performance. Invitations are
sent after admission to the University to all students who have
scored 1260 or above on the Scholastic Aptitude Tests, with not
less than 600 on the verbal portion (or 29 composite on the
American College Test, with not less than 29 on the English
portion), and who have an academic high school grade point
average of not less than 3.5 as computed by the University.
These students are eligible for special honors classes and
housing in an honors dormitory. To remain in the program,
students must enroll in not fewer than two honors courses each
semester in the first two years and maintain an overall grade
point average of 3.0. All honors students must take a two-
semester Freshman Honors Seminar and a two-semester sopho-
more interdisciplinary course as one of the required honors
courses each semester. Honors requirements are not in addition
to General Education requirements but may be used in satisfac-
tion of those requirements. The small sizes of the classes and
the high .quality of the students make possible more thorough
inquiry into course materials and more independent work.
Students may enhance their critical faculties through extensive
reading, writing of research papers, and oral presentations in
class. Students who fulfill the requirements of the Honors Pro-
gram with a 3.0 overall average, satisfy the General Education
requirements, and have 64 semester hours of credit, will receive
the Associate of Arts with honors. Those with a 3.5 overall
grade point average will receive the certificate with high
honors. After the sophomore year, the Honors Program
becomes the responsibility of the department in which the
student pursues the major course of study. The departmental
honors coordinator should be contacted for admission into the
upper-division honors program. The upper-division honors pro-
grams in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences lead to the
baccalaureate degree with either honors or high honors. On the
basis of performance in honors courses, if required, a minimum
upper-division grade point average of 3.5, and a senior thesis or
project, each department will decide whether the student will
graduate with honors or high honors.


SPECIAL PROGRAMS
Academic Enrichment and Recruitment Services (AERS)
The AERS office works closely with minority high school and
community college students to facilitate their matriculation at
the University of Florida. Once these students are enrolled, the
office continues helping them by providing academic advise-
ment and career guidance. Academic counselors are available
to assist students in reviewing career goals, course selection,
and curricular and admission requirements.


In addition to academic advisement and recruitment services,
the AERS office serves as a central source of information
pertaining to academic enrichment services offered at the
University of Florida. The office coordinates and directs minority
academic affairs (i.e. admissions, advisement, drop petitions,
preprofessional education) for the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences and is an adjunct to the CLAS Academic Advisement
Center.

Special Services/PACT
The Special Services Program and the Program for Academic
Counseling and Tutoring (PACT) are designed to give educa-
tionally disadvantaged students who qualify for admission
to the University of Florida assistance in developing those
academic skills needed for successful academic and social pro-
gress at the University. The supportive services offered or
arranged for by these programs include counseling, academic
advisement, tutoring, study skills, reading and writing labs, and
special classes. Peer counselors are assigned to students to assist
them in making the smooth transition to the university environ-
ment.
While admission to the federally funded Special Services Pro-
gram is selective and only a limited, number of students can
participate, the State-supported PACT serves all other incoming
students who would benefit from the academic assistance pro-
vided through these programs.
Both of these programs work in close coordination with other
supportive services in the planning and implementation of
various programs designed to increase retention and graduation
efforts at the University of Florida.


COUNSELING AND
RELATED SERVICES
In addition to assistance from academic advisers (358 Little
Hall), students may find that one or more of the following
offices can be of assistance in solving personal problems, career
selection problems,, or problems relating to deficiencies in
academic skills. The Student Affairs section of this catalog
describes their specific services.
1. Reading and Writing Center (2105 GPA)
2. Speech and Hearing Center (442 ASB)
3. Student Health Service (Infirmary)
4. Career Resource Center (G-1 JWRU)
The Psychological and Vocational Counseling Center (311
Little Hall) provides professional psychological services to
students. These include vocational counseling, career informa-
tion, assistance with academic problems, specialized testing,
marriage counseling, and personal counseling. Students and
students' spouses may apply in person for such services as they
deem necessary. No charge is made. The Counseling Center
offers consultative services to university faculty and staff who
are engaged in counseling students. Close relationships are
maintained with deans, college advisers, housing personnel,
the Student Health Service, and religious centers for the purpose
of expediting both counseling and consultative services.







FISHER SCHOOL OF ACCOUNTING


Fisher School

of Accounting


GENERAL STATEMENT
The School of Accounting was established July 1, 1977 and
named the Fisher School of Accounting in 1985. The objective
of the Fisher School is to provide the technical and general
education necessary to enter the accounting profession and pro-
gress 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 opera-
tions and the.environment of business as well as accounting
knowledge. In addition to the demanding technical skills, an
ability to communicate clearly in both verbal and written form
is essential. Interpersonal skills and professional judgment are
important elements in the practice of accounting. Although
accounting is unusually demanding and requires a high achieve-
ment 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, applica-
tion forms (available at the Fisher School of Accounting offices)
should be completed early in the Spring Term.



HONORARY AND PROFESSIONAL
ORGANIZATIONS

Beta Alpha Psi
This honorary accounting fraternity has 115 chapters
nationally. Upsilon Chapter was the 18th chapter to be founded
(in 1938) and is recognized as one of the best chapters in the
country. An active professional program is conducted each year
including guest speakers, panel discussions, field trips, and
other activities designed to promote professional awareness.
Beta Alpha Psi cosponsors the Graduate Accounting Con-
ference which annually attracts more than 100 accounting
practitioners. Membership requirements include high ethical
standards and a minimum grade point average. Additional
information concerning these requirements may be obtained
from the Fisher School of Accounting.
Beta Gamma Sigma
Election to this national business honorary society is based on
scholarship and character. For additional information, apply to
the Office of the Dean, College of Business Administration.
Florida Accounting Association
The FAA is a professional/social organization that is open to.
all accounting students. Its aims are to facilitate communication
between accounting students and the accounting profession
and to encourage greater interaction between students and
faculty.
School of Accounting Student Council
Members of the Fisher School of Accounting Student Council
are elected by the students of the School. The Council performs
a leadership role in a variety of school activities (student news-
letter, Business Day, Teacher of the Year Award, orientation
sessions) and provides student representation 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 Research Center, Fisher School of Account-
ing, University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida 3261 1.



PROGRAM OF STUDY
The recommended curriculum to prepare for a professional
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 accounting specialty in addition to
providing knowledge of both the basic accounting framework
and the underlying business and related disciplines. Details
concerning the five-year 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 of
Florida, Gainesville, Florida 32611. Additional information can
also be obtained by contacting the Fisher 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 account-
ing, 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.


REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION
The University of Florida and the Fisher School encourage
applications from qualified students of both sexes from all
cultural, racial, religious, and ethnic groups. Listed below are
the specific minimum requirements for admission to the Fisher
School. It should be understood however that these are min-
imum requirements and that admission to this School is subject
to enrollment capacity and is a selective process. The satis-
faction of minimum requirements does not automatically
guarantee admission. A student's total record including educa-
tional objective, pattern of courses previously completed,
quality of previous academic record, and test data will all be
considered in evaluating an application for admission. Priority
in admission will be given to those applicants whose total
record indicates the greatest likelihood of success in the pro-
gram requested.
Students Classified UF: To be eligible for admission to the
Fisher School, a student classified UF must have (a) completed
at least 60 semester hours of coursework (current coursework is
included in the 60 hours); (b) completed at least 12 semester

Colleges

FISHER SCHOOL OF ACCOUNTING


Transfer Students: The applicant should complete, as far as
possible, the courses required for the desired curriculum.
Completion of these courses and receipt of the AA degree does
not guarantee acceptance to the Fisher School. The eligibility
standards for admission for students classified UF (see above)
apply equally to transfer students.
A. Students attending four year colleges wh6 wish to transfer
after two years should follow a program of general education
and preprofessional courses similar to the Basic Curriculum
for the Freshman and Sophomore years for students desiring
to enter the Fisher School. Courses should not be taken
during the first two years which are offered only at the upper
division level at the University of Florida.
B. Junior College and Community College students should:
1. Complete the General Education requirements estab-
lished for the junior college.
2. Complete, insofar as possible, all of the preprofessional
courses.
3. Avoid professional coursework that is available at the
University of Florida only as 3rd and 4th year courses.
TRANSFER STUDENTS ARE ADVISED TO AVOID SUCH
COURSES AS BUSINESS LAW, PRINCIPLES OF MARKET-
ING, PRINCIPLES OF FINANCE, PRINCIPLES OF MAN-
AGEMENT, PRINCIPLES OF INSURANCE, PRINCIPLES
OF REAL ESTATE, PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT, AND
ACCOUNTING COURSES BEYOND THE INTRODUC-
TORY LEVEL. A maximum of four semester credits may be
allowed for courses taken during the first two years which
are available only as third and fourth year professional
courses in the College of Business Administration at the
University of Florida. Any credit granted for such work
will be granted only in the form of undistributed elective
credit. IN NO CASE MAY SUCH COURSES BE IN
ACCOUNTING. In the case where a student wishes to
waive an upper division core course and substitute a com-
munity college course, waivers may be granted on an in-
dividual basis but the student will be required to take
another course in the area being waived. The substitute
course will be specified by the Department Chairman of
.the area.

GENERAL REGULATIONS
STUDENT RESPONSIBILITY: The student must assume full
responsibility for registering for the proper courses and for
fulfilling all requirements for the degree. The student is also
responsible for completing all courses for which he or she is
registered.
Seniors must file formal application for a degree in the Office
of the Registrar early in the semester in which they expect to
receive the degree. The official calendar shows the latest date
by which this can be done.
Seniors should make an appointment for a graduation check
with the Fisher School at the beginning of their senior year.
NORMAL LOADS: The normal course load in the Fisher
School is 15 credit hours per semester. A studentmay be per-
mitted to register for additional hours if in the opinion of the
academic adviser his or her academic record justifies it.
Students who wish to take a lower course load should be aware
that certain university privileges and benefits require a min-
imum registration. It is the student's responsibility to verify the
minimum registration necessary for these benefits.
RESIDENCE: The last 30 semester hours to be applied toward
the degree must be completed in residence in the Fisher School.
At least 20 semester hours of upper-division accounting
coursework required for the B.S.Acc. degree must be completed
at the University of Florida. Once a student enters the Fisher
School, no courses may be taken by correspondence nor may
required courses (in preprofessional, accounting, and support-
ing fields) be taken outside the University of Florida. No excep-
tions to this policy are permitted. Students at the Fisher School
may take elective and general education courses at other four-
year colleges but only if (1) the student will have more than 30


hours left to graduation upon completion of such courses, and
(2) advance approval is obtained from the Assistant Director.
SATISFACTORY-UNSATISFACTORY GRADE OPTION: An
undergraduate student in the Fisher School may take on the S-U
basis only those courses which will be counted as free electives
in fulfilling degree requirements. Courses taken to satisfy com-
munication requirements for the five-year program may not be
taken on an S-U basis.
PROBATION AND SUSPENSION: Students who do not make
satisfactory academic progress will not be allowed to remain in
the Accounting program. More than one grade below C in
upper division accounting coursework is considered unsatisfac-
tory progress.
DROP POLICY: Courses may be dropped during the drop/add
period without penalty. After the drop/add period, a course may
be dropped up to the date established as the School deadline.
All such drops are subject to the following restrictions:
(1) No more than two drops after the University drop/add
period will be permitted in a student's upper-division
academic career for any reason.
(2) After the deadline, students may petition the University's
Committee on Student Petitions to drop a course.
(3) Students dropping their full course load must contact the
Office of the Registrar as this constitutes withdrawal from the
University. Withdrawal in any term (Fall, Spring, or any
Summer term) is counted as one drop for the purpose of
applying the drop policies. The School will exclude students
from the accounting program if the student withdraws from
the University of Florida three times after admission to the
Fisher School of Accounting.
(4) Students dropping an Accounting course for which there
was a waiting list at the end of the drop/add period may be
assigned the lowest priortiy for enrolling in that course during
the next academic term.
GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS: To receive the degree
Bachelor of Science in Accounting a student must satisfactorily
complete the following:
1. 64 semester credit hours of lower division requirements.
2. An approved program in accounting.
3. Upper division core courses.
4. Elective requirements.
A minimum of 124 semester credit hours is required for
graduation including 60 semester hours in upper division
courses. The waiving of any required course does not reduce

College of Agriculture
The aim of the College of Agriculture is to provide students
with the best education possible for service in agricultural
business, technology, and science.
The departments in the College are Agricultural and Exten-
sion Education, Agricultural Engineering, Agronomy, Animal
Science, Dairy Science, Entomology and Nematology, Food
and Resource Economics, Food Science and Human Nutrition,
Fruit Crops, Microbiology and Cell Science, Ornamental
Horticulture, Plant Pathology, Poultry Science, Soil Science,
and Vegetable Crops. Degree programs are available through
the College of Agriculture in the Botany and Statistics depart-
ments administered by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
The School of Forest Resources and Conservation is a specialized
faculty within the College of Agriculture.


REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION
The University of Florida and the College of Agriculture
encourage applications from qualified students of both sexes
from all cultural, racial, religious, and ethnic groups. Listed
below are the specific requirements for admission to this Col-
lege. In the event enrollment quotas become necessary because
of limited space or teaching resources, selection of those
admitted will be on the basis of past academic performance.
Lower Division Students
Any student with a UF classification who has finalized his or
her decision to study in the College of Agriculture may apply for
admission to the College.
Upper Division Students
To be eligible for admission to the College of Agriculture
upper division students must have demonstrated by selection of
preprofessional courses an intent to pursue a program in
agriculture.
Transfer Students. To be eligible for admission to the College
of Agriculture, a transfer student must satisfy the minimum
requirements set forth in the ADMISSIONS section of this
catalog. Additionally, the applicant should satisfy the following
specific requirements for consideration by the College of
Agriculture:
(1) Complete the General Education requirements of the
University of Florida as described in the College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences section of this catalog; or, complete an Associate
of Arts degree.
(2) Complete the preprofessional requirements of the College
of Agriculture for the major field.
The following recommendations will serve as a guide in
expediting transfer to the College of Agriculture in compliance
with the above requirements:
A. Students attending four-year colleges who wish to transfer
after two years should follow a program of general education
and preprofessional courses similar to the Suggested Course
Sequence on the next page of this catalog.
B. Junior College students should consult with an adviser and
the Transfer Advisement Manual published by the University
of Florida to develop a program of study that will satisfy the
above requirements. Some general guidelines to be followed
include:
1. Complete the two-year college parallel program at the
junior college.
2. Satisfy the General Education requirements established
for the junior college.
3. Complete a program of general chemistry through
qualitative analysis and mathematics through college
algebra and trigonometry.
4. Complete basic courses in biology or botany and
zoology.
5. Complete a course in general economics.
6. Complete a course in general physics.
7. Choose elective courses in fulfilling the required total


hours in the college-parallel program from the areas of
speech, English, and the basic sciences.
8. Avoid specialized professional courses. Preprofessional
courses can be taken to much better advantage after the stu-
dent has acquired the appropriate background in general
education and basic science courses.
Special Postbaccalaureate Students
A student who has received a baccalaureate degree who is
not seeking admission to Graduate School may be admitted
under certain circumstances as a special postbaccalaureate stu-
dent (6AG). Students may enroll as 6AG in order to:
(1) Receive a second baccalaureate degree;
(2) Satisfy,requirements for a second major;
(3) Take basic requirements for admission to Graduate or
Professional School; or
(4) Complete courses for information only.
Admission requirements for postbaccalaureate students are
the same as for transfer students. In addition, postbaccalaureate
students must comply with College and University rules and
regulations and meet all deadlines as printed in the catalog for
undergraduate students.



GENERAL REGULATIONS

STUDENT RESPONSIBILITY: The student must assume full re-
sponsibility for registering for the proper courses and for fulfill-
ing all requirements for the degree. Each semester the student
should consult with his or her departmental adviser to plan a
program of studies. The adviser will complete a Course Approval
Form (Form 1) which must be approved by the Dean's office
prior to submitting the course request form to the Registrar.
Seniors must file a formal application for a degree in the Office
of the Registrar early in the semester in which they expect to
receive the degree. The official calendar shows the latest date
on which this can be done. Seniors should request that a
graduation check be conducted by the Dean's Office of the
College of Agriculture at the beginning of their senior year.
NORMAL LOADS: The suggested average course load in the
College of Agriculture is 15 credit hours. A student may be
permitted to register for additional hours if, in the opinion of the
academic adviser and the Dean, the student's academic record
justifies this. Students may register for less than 12 hours, but
should be aware that certain university privileges and benefits
require the minimum of 12 hours. It is the student's responsibil-
ity to verify the minimum course load for these benefits.
RESIDENCE: The last 30 semester hours to be applied toward
a degree must be completed in residence in the College of
Agriculture. In special cases this requirement may be waived by
the Dean's office. Students may complete 12 semester credit
hours by extension or correspondence among the 30 semester
credits of residence work required for the baccalaureate degree
but such work must have prior approval by the major depart-
ment and the College Dean for each course taken. Credit for
work by correspondence will not be accepted by the College
unless a student has an upper division grade point average of
2.0 or higher in all work attempted in residence.
SATISFACTORY-UNSATISFACTORY GRADE OPTION: An
undergraduate student in the College of Agriculture may take
on the S-U basis only those courses which will be counted as
electives in fulfilling the requirements for the degree.
PROBATION AND SUSPENSION: Students who do not make
satisfactory academic progress and drop 20 honor points below
a 2.0 average will be suspended for one term and then may
return for a term but must lower their deficit below 20 points or
face final suspension.
DROP POLICY: Courses may be dropped during the drop/add
period without penalty. Thereafter, courses may be dropped
only by College of Agriculture petition until a deadline for col-
lege petitions is reached. Drops requiring College of Agriculture
petitions are subject to the following rules:






COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE


(1) Two free drops after the University drop/add period will
be permitted for a student classified as 1AG or 2AG. Students
classified as 3AG, 4AG, 6AG, and OAG are allowed one free
drop. These drops will be processed according to the
student's classification. Records of free drops will be main-
tained in the Dean's office; therefore all drops must be pro-
cessed through that office.
(2) After the College deadline, students may petition the Uni-
versity Committee on Student Petitions to drop a course pro-
-vided they can document sufficient reasons to drop, usually
hardship or medical.
(3) Students dropping their full course load must contact the
Office of the Registrar as this constitutes withdrawal from the'
University.
WITHDRAWAL POLICY: If a College of Agriculture student
withdraws from the University for a second time, that student
will be placed on College probation. A third withdrawal will
constitute violation of the probation and the student will not be
allowed to register again as a student in the College of Agricul-
ture.


AGRICULTURE: LOWER DIVISION
Students planning to enter the College of Agriculture should
take, while in lower division, the following program of study.
The sequence in which courses are to be taken will depend
upon the department in which a student takes his or her upper

For Agricultural.Business Specialization at least 13 credits of
the 128 total required must be completed from the areas of
Food and Resource Economics (AEB) and Business Administra-
tion (ACG, ECO, FIN, MAN, MAR), in addition to those re-
quired in Lower Division plus a department major.
The academic adviser of the department in which the student
majors will assist the student in arranging his/her course of
study and make necessary recommendations to the Dean. The'
student's coursesfor each semester are subject to the approval
of the Dean and the Department Chairman.
CERTIFICATE IN TROPICAL AGRICULTURE
A program for a specialization (with certificate) in Tropical
Agriculture for undergraduate and graduate students is available
through the College of Agriculture. The program provides
course selection to broaden the normal degree requirements for
those interested in specializing in Tropical Agriculture. Students
enrolled in any one of the existing major programs in the Col-
lege of Agriculture may pursue this program. The program is
also available to nonagriculture students with the approval of
the college.
The Certificate in Tropical Agriculture (CTA) requires a min-
imum of 27 hours of appropriately selected courses. Some and
possibly all of these hours will be in addition to the require-
ments 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 appro-
priate 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 Agri-
cultural 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 in-
stitutions 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 interdisciplinary
faculty committee of three members to select appropriate
courses to fulfill the objectives of the program. Students inter-
ested 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-plan
ecosystem as related to management of all groups of pests
through the application of biological, chemical, and inte-
grated systems compatible with a quality environment will be
provided.
Students who select the Pest Management and Plant Protec-
tion Specialization will major in one of the following programs
in the College of Agriculture: Agronomy, Entomology and
Nematology, Fruit Crops, Ornamental Horticulture, 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 oppor-
tunities in agribusiness 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 under-
graduate 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 iirdicate (register) with the'chair-
man of the interdisciplinary committee on systems of Pest Man-
agement and Plant Protection. The following required courses
should be completed in addition to the major program require-
ments. 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.

Assignment to an internship center is an involved process and
is not taken lightly. Every consideration is given to student
requests. However, applicants are specifically NOT guaranteed
assignment to their home county, to the immediate or general
vicinity of the campus, or to a given center on request. Assign-
ments will be made only to those centers indicated at time of
application. Submission of an application'by a candidate consti-
tutes an agreement to accept assignment in the center where it
is determined that the objectives of the internship program can
best be achieved. Failure to accept an assignment negotiated by
Department personnel relieves the Department of any further
responsibility to provide internship experiences and courses for
the candidate.
The student completing this program will be required to
satisfy the College of Agriculture core curriculum requirements.
All students will take a basic skills assessment examination
while enrolled in AEE 3323. This examination includes sections
on mathematics, reading, and writing. A student must have a
successful score on all sections of the basic skills assessment
examination prior to admission to the teaching internship
experience.

ENTOMOLOGY AND NEMATOLOGY
Entomology and nematology are biological sciences dealing
with two principal groups of invertebrate animals. The curric-
ulum is designed to give basic training in entomology and
nematology and specialized programs in various areas of these
two sciences.
Within the pest management program, specialized emphasis
may be given to areas like crop protection, animal protection,
or urban entomology and pest control. In the latter, students are
trained in insects, plant disease, and weed control with special,
reference to problems in and around residential and other
buildings. Emphasis is also given to business management so
that students are prepared for administrative duties as well.
Students will be prepared to take the Florida Board of Health
certification examination. Specific requirements for these
programs can be obtained by contacting the Department of
Entomology and Nematology.

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 ad-
visers for guidance and approval of electives.
The Food Science curriculum is designed to utilize the
principles of chemistry, biochemistry, microbiology, engineer-
ing, other basic sciences, and management in applications
related to the manufacturing, processing, preserving, distribu-
tion, and packaging of food and food products for immediate or
future utilization. General areas of study include: chemical,
microbiological, and nutritional properties of raw and pro-
cessed foods; role of processing and engineering in modifying
food properties; food deterioration and spoilage; role of addi-
tives 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, management,
food marketing, nutrition, public health and consumer protec-
tion. 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 curric-
ulum provides an excellent undergraduate education for stu-
dents 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 courses chosen with the help of their advisers.

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 Construc-
tion, 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
includes options in Architectural Design, Preservation, Struc-
tures, and Environmental Technologies.
The 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, 4901L, 4902L, 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 under-
graduate design disciplines (architecture, landscape architec-
ture, and interior design). The College's internal research award
competition requires multidisciplinary 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 multidisci-
plinary, cross-campus student input and effort.
The Architecture and Fine Arts Library and the Visual Re-
sources Center are the largest collections of their kind in the
Southeast. Together they provide books, government docu-
ments, American and foreign periodicals, subject files, micro-
text, 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.
The Departments of Architecture and Landscape Architecture
and the School of Building Construction have each celebrated
over fifty years of service to the citizens of Florida.


STUDENT AID
Students interested in part-time employment, assistantships,
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 Archi-
tectural 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 Insti-
tute: 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 insti-
tutions 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 orga-
nizations of each discipline is available to the student chapters.


Student chapters of the American Institute of Architecture
Students and the American Society of Interior Designers, Insti-
tute of Business Designers; the UF Chapter of the American
Society of Landscape Architects, the Student Planning Associ-
ation, the UF Chapter of the American Institute of Constructors,
the Student Chapter of the Associated Builders and Contractors,
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 participation with pro-
fessional 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 under-
stood that only minimum requirements are given and that ad-
mission 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 com-
mittee, 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 37). 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 prepro-
fessional 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 stu-
dents have been served.
Admission of students having junior status falls into two
categories: ) those having completed all Lower Division re-
quirements 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 University 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 rpay 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
Committee the Department of Architecture annually selects
students to enter third year professional studies. All students
who satisfactorily complete the two-year preprofessional pro-
grams at Miami-Dade, Broward, and St. Petersburg (Clear-






COLLEGE OF ARCHITECTURE


water) Community Colleges are eligible for consideration for
third year admission. Applications for transfer from one of the
approved preprofessional programs or from the Lower Divi-
sion of the UF College of Liberal Arts and Sciences must be
filed by the deadline listed in the front of the catalog
(February 1). Transfer students with provisional admission
status, (3AR, 4AR, 5AR, or 6AR) must notify the Department
office of their wish to be considered for third year admission
by the same date.
2. Curriculum in Interior Design: Transfer students must con-
sult with the program adviser. Students needing to complete
Lower Division preprofessional requirements are urged to
apply for the Summer term for the sequence of architectural
design, building arts, and architectural history. The remaining
preprofessional courses may be completed during the next
academic year. Students accepted for the sequence shall be
admitted as provisional and shall be reviewed during the
Spring of the next year for approval to enter the professional
courses in the junior year. Notification of the decision of the
admissions committee shall be made prior to the close of the
Spring Semester for the junior class which begins the follow-
ing Fall.
3. Curriculum in Landscape Architecture: Transfer students
contemplating the professional degree program must contact
the Department Adviser to determine admission timing and,
eligibility. Students in the predesign programs at Miami-
Dade, Broward, and St. Petersburg (Clearwater) Community
Colleges must contact the Department Adviser regarding pre-
professional courses not available at those colleges. Transfer
students from community colleges not offering an equivalent
predesign program are urged to begin their preprofessional
course work in the Summer term in order to complete re-
quired classes in three semesters. -Calculus, botany, and
physical science requirements, in addition to general educa-
tion requirements, can normally be fulfilled at the community
college. Students, with Associate of Science degrees must
complete all required general education and preprofessional
coursework prior to admission to professional studies.
4. Curriculum in Building Construction: See the School of
Building Construction section of this catalog.


APPLICATION DEADLINES'

The programs in Architecture, Interior Design, and Landscape
Architecture will admit students for third year professional
coursework in the Fall Semester only. Students needing to com-
plete some or all of the Lower Division requirements shall be
reviewed for the Fall, Spring, or Summer semesters. Applica-
tions for Fall, including all required credentials, must be
received by the Registrar's Office (for transfer students) or the
Dean's Office for UF students, as follows: Architecture--
February 1; Interior Design and Landscape Architecture May
11. The application deadline for these Departments for Spring.
and Summer is as stated in the front of the catalog. Applicants
unable to meet these deadlines may apply on a space available
basis.
The School of Building Construction will admit students for
third year professional coursework in the Fall and Spring
semesters only. Deadlines for completion of all application pro-
cedures, including School requirements and receipt of official
credentials is March 3 for Fall and October 1 for Spring admis-
sion. Applicants unable to meet these deadlines may apply on a
space available basis.
Building Construction applicants needing to complete some
or all of the Lower Division requirements may be admitted to
the College of Architecture on a provisional basis not to exceed
two semesters. Those in this category must meet the require-
ments of the Dean's Office and have the recommendation of
the Director of the School. Deadlines for students in this cat-
egory are as stated in the front of this catalog under "All Other
Programs."


ADVISEMENT
Students planning to major in any program of study in the
College of Architecture should see the Director of Student Ser-
vices or the proper departmental chairman, program director, or
adviser as soon as possible.


GENERAL REGULATIONS

MAXIMUM AND MINIMUM LOADS
Fifteen to eighteen semesters hours in any regular semester
shall be considered a normal load. A student may be permitted
to register for more than eighteen hours when, in the opinion of
the adviser, the quality of the student's record justifies this.
Twelve credit hours is the minimum to be considered a full-time
student; students who wish to take less than this should be
aware that certain University privileges and benefits require
full-time status. It is the student's responsibility to verify the min-
imum academic load necessary for these benefits.
Students who wish to ask for adjustments in their academic
load may petition the Dean through the Director of Student Ser-
vices and the appropriate Departmental Chairman.

NORMAL ACADEMIC PROGRESS
Students must maintain a minimum grade point average of
2.0 (C average). However, achieving this minimum does not
guarantee enrollment in the professional and preprofessional
courses. Additionally, these courses must be taken in a
sequence as specified by the college or department advisor.
This sequence, along with all course requirements, is outlined
in this section of the catalog.
While the preprofessional and professional course sequence
must be maintained, variation from the listed positioning of gen-
eral education and elective coursework may occur. The four-
year plan shown requires an average of more than sixteen
credits per term, which may not be appropriate for all students.
Students are urged to plan their curricula well in advance, so
that course sequence and credit-hour loads will accommodate
the most effective academic progress, regardless of the number
of terms required.

DEAN'S HONOR LIST
Undergraduate students who demonstrate .excellence in their
academic work by completing a minimum of 15 semester hours
credit in a semester and achieving a grade point average of 3.5
or better will earn a position on the Dean's Honor List. Students
whose term averages are below 3.5 due to grades of I or X are
not eligible.

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS
To be eligible for graduation, the student must earn a min-
imum grade point average of 2.0 (C) for all work attempted in
the appropriate curriculum while classified in the College.
Courses taken while enrolled in another Upper Division Col-
lege may not apply toward the calculation of the College or
Architecture average; Specific grade requirements for the
various curricula may be obtained from the departmental or
Dean's Offices.
Students planning to enter the Graduate School must' main-
tain a 3.0 (B) average in Upper Division work.

GRADUATION WITH HONORS AND HIGH HONORS
The faculty will consider recommending students for gradua-
tion with HONORS or HIGH HONORS on the following
criteria: (a) grade point average, (b) distribution and quality of
subject matter studied, (c) evaluation of the students by the
faculty, and (d) other pertinent qualities of the student and his or
her work.
The student will be considered for HONORS,or HIGH
HONORS upon earning a minimum academic average estab-
lished by the department or program. The average will be




Colleges

COLLEGE OF ARCHITECTURE


calculated on all work attempted while the student is classified
in the Upper Division. Transfer credits will be excluded from
the average; HONORS or HIGH HONORS may be awarded
upon a minimum of 48 semester hour credits taken at the Uni-
versity of Florida. Students should check with their department
or program director for minimum average required.

STUDENT WORK
The College reserves the right to retain student work for the
purpose of record, exhibition, or instruction.

PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE
Students are urged to obtain before graduation some
experience in the employ of practicing professionals in their
particular field or in some allied work which will give an insight
into the problems of professional practice. Such employment
provides an introduction to the methods of actual practice and
enables the student to derive increased benefit from advanced
work in school. Students should seek the counsel of their faculty
adviser as to the type of practical experience best suited to their
individual needs.

FIELD TRIPS
Each year a number of field trips are arranged to give students
an opportunity to broaden and extend their educational ex-
perience through study of planning, design, and construction
projects of unusual interest. Students frequently combine such
studies with attendance at state and national meetings of the
professional organizations in their respective fields. Students
should check with their departments for field trip requirements.

GRADUATE DEGREES
The College offers the degrees of Master bf Architecture,
Master of Arts in Urban and Regional Planning Master of Sci-
ence in Building Construction, and Master of Building Con-
struction. To meet the needs and goals of each student,
graduate programs are prepared in consultation with a desig-
nated member of the Graduate Faculty of the College of Archi-
tecture. For further information, see the Graduate School
Catalog.


I. CURRICULUM IN ARCHITECTURE
Leading to the degree Bachelor of Design (Architecture).
McRae, J. M., Chairman; Shaw, L. G., Undergradate Program
Director.
The professional program in architecture, which is accredited
by the National Architectural Accrediting Board, consists of
both the undergraduate and graduate curricula. The under-
graduate 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, Environmental
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 Department of Architecture has a number of summer pro-
grams that may be pursued for academic credit:
The program, which is conducted in Vicenza, Italy, includes
three basic courses: Architectural Design, Architectural History,
and a third course which includes Italian language, culture and
folklore. Many study tours are included, and participation by
noted professionals and visiting critics augments the program.


All Architecture students of good academic standing who have
complete third-year requirements are eligible. Application
deadline is the end of November, and applications may be
obtained from the Department office.
Preservation Institute: Nantucket (PI:N) offers courses in his-
toric preservation to advanced undergraduate and graduate
students, directing multidisciplinary projects in historical re-
search, documentation, building analysis and maintenance,
and planning. This Institute was established in 1972 in this con-
temporary community which is noted for its heritage of history,
architecture, and urban design. Students are selected from
schools all over the United States.
Preservation Institute: Caribbean (PI:C) focuses on the history,
built environment, cultural values and traditions of the Carib-
bean. The total program is divided into three eight-week sum-
mer sessions, 'dealing with various aspects of architectural
historic preservation. Participants are young professionals or
advanced students from various academic disciplines from all
nations in the Greater Caribbean region. The Institute location
varies from year to year.
.The program of study is included below to show a typical se-
quence in which courses are taken. Some courses in the first
two years are offered in semesters in addition to those shown.

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 in-
terior design faculty seeks to equip the student with a knowl-
edge of design techniques, materials, resources, and an aware-
ness of the interrelated professional responsibility of environ-
mental problems. Interior Design career opportunities are
numerous due to the demand for professional design services
by businesses, corporations, community organizations, and
governmental agencies. Graduates of this program usually
assume positions in interior design offices, architectural firms,.
or generate their own practices. All entering students must con-

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 reaccreditation from the American
Council for Construction Education.
Graduatesof the UF School of Building Construction begin
work immediately as project managers, field engineers, project
schedulers, cost engineers, assistant superintendents, 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.

vice projects, and having semester social gatherings.


STUDENT CHAPTER, ASSOCIATED
BUILDERS AND CONTRACTORS
The purpose of the Student Chapter of the Associated Builders
and Contractors is to increase student knowledge of the con-
'struction industry, promote fellowship and professionalism, and
to provide service to the School of Building Construction, the
University of Florida and the community. Membership is open
to all construction related majors.
The activities include A.B.C. Job Fair, guest speakers, social
gatherings, attendance at state and national conventions, as
well as monthly chapter meetings with our parent chapter,
A.B.C. Gulf Coast. A.B.C. promotes Merit Shop.


PROGRAM OF STUDY
This four-year program for a Bachelor of Building Construc-
tion degree is for students who are interested in preparing for
professional careers in construction, management, techniques,
operations, and related areas in the construction industry, to in-
clude the arts of communications and interpersonal relations,
rather than in architectural and'engineering design.
Graduate programs leading to the degrees of Master of
Science in Building Construction and Master of Building Con-
-struction are offered, as well as a Ph.D. program in conjunction
with the College of Education.
The Freshman and Sophomore programs of study are de-
signed to provide easy transfer for junior and community col-
lege 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 responsibilities
exist in all areas of the construction industry, a few of which in-
clude land development; home building; public building; in-
dustrialized building systems; commercial, industrial, marine,
and heavy construction; underwater and space age facilities;
materials and equipment sales and installations; and construc-
tion product research, development, sales, and applications.

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, realestate
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 participa-
tion in business, the professions, and government; (b) to stimu-
late 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 busi-
ness or economics and, especially, to encourage, intellectual
inquiry.
The guiding principle of this College is a broad foundation 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 pro-
gram of study is constructed around a core of courses in eco-
nomics and the major functional areas of business.
Graduate programs in business administration and economics
are provided under the Graduate School of Business Adminis-
tration for advanced students with interest 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 instructional and
research purposes.

College of Dentistry

The College of Dentistry is one of the six colleges which
constitute the J. Hillis Miller Health Science Center. The Col-
lege of Dentistry, as well as the other units of the Health Science
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 Science
Center and University have been formulated and implemented.
In 1957 the Florida Legislature authorized the development
of a College of Dentistry in Gainesville, but it was not until the
late 1960s that faculty members were recruited and program
development initiated.
The twelve departments which make up the College of Den-
tistry are Basic Dental Sciences, Community Dentistry, Dental
Biomaterials, Dental Education, Endodontics, Operative Den-
tistry, Oral Medicine, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Ortho-
dontics, Pediatric Dentistry, Periodontics, and Prosthodontics.
A modular curriculum has been developed based on multi-
disciplinary teaching by these departments. The curriculum is
designed to permit students flexibility and individualization in
their program. It is a competency-based curriculum in which
behavioral objectives serve as the primary guidelines for stu-
dent advancement. The curriculum is flexible, but students
must complete an appropriate portion of the total curriculum
each semester. Self-instruction constitutes a significant part of
the teaching methodology.
The goals of this College are to prepare the graduate to enter
private dental practice, to enter graduate programs in any of the
dental specialties, to enter into research activities, and to be pre-
pared for a lifetime of continuing education.
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 programs in Dental Pub-


lic Health, Orthodontics, Pediatric Dentistry, and Period6ntics.
In addition, a one-year General Practice Residency program
and a four-year Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency pro-
gram are available.
The College of Dentistry aspires to attract students of the
highest caliber into its various programs. High standards of
scholastic achievement, moral character, and motivation are
expected of the applicant. The student of dentistry must possess
a high basic aptitude supplemented by an academic prepara-
tion of the highest order because of the vast amount 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. Appli-
cants with an overall B average as a minimum will receive
strongest consideration for admission to the College of Dentis-
try. 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 approximate-
ly 15 months prior to anticipated enrollment by submitting an
application 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 Flor-
ida, Box J-445, JHMHC, Gainesville, Florida 32610.









College of Education


GENERAL STATEMENT

The College of Education is the officially designated unit of
the University of Florida that is responsible for teacher educa-
tion. 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 lead-
ing toward the preparation of teachers in Agricultural and
Extension Education through the College of Agriculture; 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 Sciences; and Elementary and Special Education
through the College of Education.
In the program areas of Agricultural and Extension Education,
Art Education, Health Education, Music Education and Physical
Education, students will be recommended 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 Col-
lege 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 educational background is essential to suc-
cess 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 educa-
tion. 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 reconceptualiza-
tion of what a beginning teacher should know, should be able
to do, and should be as a model for youth. Distinguishing char-
acteristics of PROTEACH include an increase in coursework
outside the College of Education and expanded foundational
studies and clinical experiences.
Within the five-year teacher education program, Elementary
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 dis-
cipline. Students in the various subject areas of secondary edu-
cation are required to have an undergraduate major in the sub-
ject 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 teach-
ing 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 governing teachers; legal pro-
visions affecting education; the nature of handicapped children
in regular classrooms; educational diagnosis and evaluation;
interpersonal relations; learning and cognitive process in edu-
cation; instructional 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 con-
cluding internship in the public schools as well as campus-
based clinical experiences including microteaching, simula-
tion, and other controlled situations. Methods of instruction and
clinical experiences are concurrent 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 profes-
sional program.
