Using Your Undergraduate Catalog


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 administration in the back. An index is placed at the end of the catalog for reference purposes.
Each college of the University of Florida campus is represented in the Undergraduate Catalog. A typical college section describes programs offered
by the college, requirements for admission into that college, and information on other topics such as the drop policy, student responsibility, normal course
loads, and other college regulations.

If you are interested in a brief description of an undergraduate course, first consult the "Course Prefixes Listing" for the name of the department that
offers the course. For example, a course with the prefix ADV is taught by the Departments of Advertising and Mass Communication. NOTE: Because some
courses are offered by more than one department, you may have to look in several departments' Course Offerings sections to find course information.


Course Prefixes listing
The following table lists the statewide course prefixes,
their titles, and the University of Florida departments
which teach courses having this prefix. A page index of
the departments of instruction appears on the preceding
pages.

About the cover...
The cover of the 1991-1992 Undergraduate Catalog was designed by Susan Yen Raji, a 23-year-old senior in graphic
design. Susan's cover art was selected from the speed project designs submitted by Professor Jack Nichelson's layout
class. Her water color sketch of the UF campus was inspired by a Ray Hale photograph.

FLORIDA'S FIRST UNIVERSITY


HISTORY
Florida's oldest and largest university, the University
of Florida traces its beginnings to the takeover of the
private Kingsbury Academy in Ocala bythe state-funded
East Florida Seminary in 1853. The Seminary was moved
to Gainesville following the Civil War. It was consoli-
dated with the state's land-grant Florida Agricultural
College, then in Lake City, tobecome the University of
Florida in 1906. Until 1947, UF was for men only and
one of only three state universities. The others were
Florida State College for Women (now FSU) and Florida
A&M. In 1947, the student body numbered 8,177 men
and 601 women. Today UF is among the 20 largest
universities in the nation.

GOVERNMENT OF THE
UNIVERSITY
Direct supervision over the University of Florida, its
policies and affairs, is vested in the Board of Reents, a
body composed of 11 citizens who are appointed by the
Governor for six-year terms, one student appointed for
one year, and the State Commissioner of Education.
University affairs are administered by the president with
the advice and assistance of the University Administra-
tion, the University Senate, and various committees
elected by the Senate and appointed by the president.

STUDENTS
University of Florida students-numbering more
than 34,000 in fall 1989-came from 144 countries
(1,600 foreign students), all 50 states, and every one of
the 67 counties in Florida. The ratio of men to women
is 54-46. One-third are freshmen and sophomores and
40 percent, juniors and seniors. A total of 5,544, or 16
percent of the student body, are graduate students, and
2,076 are in professional programs, including medicine,
dentistry, veterinary medicine and law.
Approximately 2,000 black students and 1,700
Hispanic students attend UF. Ninety percent of the
entering freshmen rank above the national mean of
scores on standard entrance exams taken by college-
bound students. In 1988, UF ranked 4th in the nation
among public universities in the number of new National
Merit and Achievement Scholars in attendance.

FACULTY
A distinguished faculty of 3,900 attracted more than
$180 million in research and training grants in 1989-90.
More than 1,800 were grant awardees and 70 percent
of the faculty's grant proposals were successful. UF now
has more than 50 eminent scholar chairs, more than all
of the other state institutions combined. Nearly two
dozen faculty members have been selected to the Na-
tional Academies of Science and/or Engineering, the
Institute of Medicine or a counterpart in a foreign nation.
A very small sampling of honored faculty includes:
Pulitzer Prize-winners in editorial writing and poetry, co-
inventor of the jet engine, one of the four charter
members of the Solar Hall of Fame, and an art faculty
with 80 percent of its members in Who's Who in
American Art.

PROGRAMS
The University of Florida is among the nation's 51
leading research universities as categorized by the
Carnegie Commission on Higher Education. UF is a
member of the Association of American Universities, the
nation's most prestigious higher education organization.
The University of Florida is accredited by the Southern
Association of Colleges and Schools-Commission on


Colleges. Along with Ohio State and Minnesota, UF
offers more academic programs on a single campus than
any of the nation's other universities. It has 20 colleges
and schools and 100 interdisciplinary research and
education centers, bureaus and institutes. One hundred
and fourteen majors are offered in 52 undergraduate
degree programs. The Graduate School coordinates 123
masters' and 76 doctoral programs in 87 of the 137 UF
academic departments. Professional post-baccalaureate
degrees are offered in law, dentistry, medicine and
veterinary medicine.
Duringthe last year, more than 32,000 people took
advantage of the many University-sponsored opportu-
nities made available through the Division of Continuing
Education. More than 25,000 people participated in
noncredit conferences, workshops, institutes and semi-
nars. And more than 7,500 students enrolled in Inde-
pendent Study by Correspondence courses, both credit
and non-credit.

SEMESTER SYSTEM
The University of Florida operates on a semester
system. The academic year begins and ends in August.
During this period there are two semesters averaging 15
weeks of instruction, plus a week of final examinations
and two six-week summer terms. Semesters begin in
August, January and May, with summer term offered as
a whole as Term C, or in two sessions as half terms, with
Term A beginning in May and Term B beginning in June.
In most of UF's colleges, courses are scheduled in such
a way that a student may enter in any term and proceed
normally through an appropriate sequence of courses.
Consult the individual college sections of the catalog to
determine programs that begin only in designated terms.

FACILITIES
On 2,000 acres, most of it within the limits of an
85,000-population urban area, the University of Florida
operates out of more than 800 buildings, 137 of them
equipped with classrooms and laboratories. Facilities are
valued at more than $545 million. Notable among these
are the University Art Gallery, a microkelvin laboratory
capable of producing the coldest temperature in the
universe, a 100-kilowatt training and research nuclear
reactor, the second largest academic computing center
in the South and one of the nation's few self-contained
intensive care hyperbaric chambers for treating near-
drowning victims.
The Florida Museum of Natural History, located at
the center of UF's campus, is the largest natural history/
anthropology museum in the Southeast, and one of the
top 10 in the nation. Its research collections contain
nearly 6.5 million specimens.
The Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art, with 18,000
square feet of exhibit space, is one of the largest muse-
ums in the Southeast.
The Stephen C. O'Connell Centerand theJ. Wayne
Reitz Union provide space for a myriad of student and
faculty activities. One thousand persons can participate
simultaneously in eight different recreational activities in
the O'Connell Center, which is home to the Gator
basketball, swimming and gymnastics teams. More than
20,000 daily use the student union for dining, meeting,
bowling pool and other table games, arts and crafts,
music listening, TV viewing and more.
Open spaces, small ponds, picnic areas, shady
nooks and even an 81-acre wildlife sanctuary lake on
campus provide opportunities to enjoy Florida's year-
round outdoor life.

ATHLETICS
The University of Florida has one of the top
intercollegiate athletic programs in the country, and in
1988-89 received NCAA post-season invitations in men's


basketball, football and baseball. Overall, the men's and
women's programs combined were first in the South-
eastern Conference all-sports standings.
An estimated 90 percent of all students take part in
some form of organized or informal recreation. There
are 72 courts and outdoor playing fields available on
campus, as well as the O'Connell Center for indoor
activities. In all, UF offers more than 60 intramural or
club sports, ranging from archery to weightlifting. UF's
campus is also located near many recreational lakes and
rivers, including the University-owned Lake Wauburg,
and the Gulf and Atlantic beaches are just a short drive
away.


STANDARD OF ETHICAL
CONDUCT
PREAMBLE
Honesty, integrity, and caring are essential qualities
of an educational institution, and the concern for values
and ethics is important to the whole educational expe-
rience. Individual students and faculty and staff mem-
bers, as well as the University's formal organizations
must assume responsibility for these qualities. The con-
cern for values and ethics should be expressed in classes,
seminars, laboratories, and in fact, in all aspects of
University life. By definition, the University community
includes members of the faculty, staff, and administra-
tion as well as students.
Education at the University of Florida is not an
ethically neutral experience. The University stands for,
and seeks to inculcate, high standards. Moreover, the
concern for values goes well beyond the observance of
rules.
A university is a place where self-expression, voicing
disagreement, and challenging outmoded customs and
beliefs are prized and honored. However, all such
expressions and challenges need to be civil, manifesting
respect and concern for others.
As a major sector in the community, students are
expected to follow the University's rules and regulations
that, by design, seek to promote an atmosphere of
learning. The other sectors, faculty, staff, and adminis-
tration, are expected to provide encouragement and
leadership as well as example.
While the University seeks to educate and encour-
age, it also has a responsibility to restrict any behavior
that adversely affects others or is contrary to the pursuit
of knowledge. The purpose of this Standard of Ethical
Conduct is to summarize what is expected of the mem-
bers of the University community. Existing University
documents address these concerns in greater detail.
I. ACADEMIC HONESTY
The University of Florida requires all members of
its community to be honest in all their endeavors.
Students are required to commit themselves to
academic honesty by signing a prescribed basic
statement, including the Student Honor Code, as
part of the registration process. A fundamental
principle is that the whole process of learning and
pursuit of knowledge are diminished by cheating,
plagiarism, and other acts of academic dishonesty.
In addition, every dishonest act in the academic
environmentaffects other students adversely, from
the skewing of the grading curve to giving unfair
advantage for honors or for professional or gradu-
ate school admission. Therefore, the University
will take severe action against dishonest students.
Similarly, measures will be taken against faculty,
staff, and administration members who practice
dishonest or demeaning behavior.
A. Student Responsibility. A commitment is made in
writing at the time of admission to be honest in all
academic work, and abide by the Student Honor
Code. In addition, students should report any
condition that facilitates dishonesty to the class







FLORIDA'S FIRST UNIVERSITY


instructor, the department chair, the dean of the
college, or the Student Honor Court.
B. Faculty Responsibility. Faculty members have a
duty to promote honest behavior and to avoid
practices and environments that foster cheating in
their classes. Teachers should encourage students
to bring negative conditions or incidents of dishon-
esty to their attention. In their own work, teachers
should practice the same high standards they
expect from theirstudents.
C. Administration Responsibility. As highly visible
members of our academic community, admin-
istrators should be ever vigilant to promote
academic honesty and conduct their lives in an
ethically exemplary manner.
II. ALCOHOL AND DRUGS.
The use of alcohol and other drugs can have a
negative impact on judgements and reaction,
health and safety, and may lead to legal complica-
tions as well.
A. The University's Role. The University's principal
role is to engage in education which leads toward
high standards and respectful conduct. When
those are compromised, it will take disciplinary
action against organizations violating rules regard-


ing alcohol and against individuals violating either
the law or reasonable conduct in the use of alco-
hol. It must also provide help for students who are
alcohol-dependent. The University will deal se-
verely with students convicted of the illegal posses-
sion, use, or sale of drugs.
B. What the University Community Can Do to Pre-
vent Alcohol Abuse and Drug Use. Students can
help control substance abuse bydecliningto useor
condone the use of drugs and by insisting that
organizations and individuals use alcohol within
the law and within the bounds of reasonable
conduct. Students should make an effort to pre-
vent persons who have abused alcohol or used
drugs from harming themselves or others, espe-
cially in driving a motor vehicle, and should en-
courage those needing professional helptoseek it.
The same standards and regulations apply with
eaual force to members of the faculty, staff, and
administration.
IlI. RELATIONS BETWEEN PEOPLE AND GROUPS.
One of the major benefits of higher education and
membership in the University community is greater
knowledge of and respect for other groups, reli-
gious, racial, and cultural. Indeed, genuine appre-
ciation for individual differences and cultural di-


versity is essential to the environment of learning.
Another major aspect of the University's life in-
volves sexual relationships. Sexual attitudes or
actions which are intimidating, harassing, coer-
cive, or abusive, or that invade the right to privacy
of the individual are not acceptable. Organiza-
tions or individuals that adversely upset the deli-
cate balance of communal living will be subject to
disciplinary action by the University. Only in an
atmosphere of equality and respect can all mem-
bers of the University community grow.
IV. SERVICE TO OTHERS.
An important outcome of a University of Florida
education should be a commitment to serving
other people. This sense of service should be
encouraged throughout the institution by faculty,
administration, staff, and students. Through expe-
rience in helping individuals and the community,
students can put into practice the values they leam
in the classroom.
Education at the University of Florida is not an
ethically neutral experience. The entire University
community should dedicate itself to realizing the
vision that a center of learning is a beacon that, by
directing itself to the highest values, guides and
encourages society to do the same.










Admissions

APPLICATIONS FOR
ADMISSIONS

Application for admission to any undergraduate
college, school, or division of the University must be
made to the Admissions section of the Office of the
University Registrar on the forms prescribed and by the
dates indicated below. It is quite proper to correspond
with deans, directors, or department chairs, but such
contact with University officers does not in any way
eliminate the necessity for filing a formal application in
the Office of the University Registrar by the dates speci-
fied.
How to Apply: An applicant should address a re-
quest to Admissions, Office of the University Registrar,
University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida, 32611-2058,
asking for application forms. Forms and directions for
completion of applications vary with the level of entry
at the University and the applicant should indicate that
forms are being requested for admission as a freshman,
undergraduate transfer, postbaccalaureate, graduate,
dental, law, medical, veterinary medicine, or special
student, as the case might be.
IMPORTANT NOTE: An application for admission
must be filed forthe specific term that the student wishes
to enter the University and will be considered for en-
trance in that term ONLY. Applicants wishing to change
their planned entry date should contact the Admissions
Office for application instructions. An approval for ad-
mission 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 quali-
fied applicants of both sexes from all cultural, racial,
religious, and ethnic groups. The University is committed
to non-discrimination with respect to race, creed, color,
religion, age, handicap, sex, marital status, national
origin, political opinions or affiliations, and veteran
status in the administration of education policies, ad-
missions policies, financial aid, employment, or in any
program or activity. The University of Florida Title IX
coordinator is Jacquelyn D. Hart, 352 Tigert Hall, (904)
392-6004. The University, when appropriate, provides
substitution of coursesfor handicapped individuals upon
request. Both the Educational Testing Service (SAT) and
the American College Testing Program (ACT) have
brochures describing special testing arrangements for
handicapped applicants, and there are alternate ad-
missions procedures for handicapped applicants who
are unable to take the required tests.
A brief summary of the general requirements for
admission or readmission to any college or division of the
University is given below:
1. A satisfactory academic record. Each applicant
must furnish a complete chronological record of
educational institutions previously attended. Offi-
cial transcripts must be submitted in accordance
with instructionswhich accompanythe application
form. Failure to declare attendance at another
institution could cause invalidation of admission
and any credits or degrees earned.
2. Satisfactory scores on achievement tests or apti-
tude tests as noted in the application instructions.
3. A satisfactory conduct record.
4. Students whose native language is not English
must submit 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 on information


in connection with an application for admission or
residence affidavit may result in disciplinary action,
denial of admission, and invalidation of credits or de-
grees 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
Academic Regulations section of this catalog (see Table
of Contents).
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 guaran-
tee admission. Under Board of Regents policy a limited
number of students may be admitted as exceptions to
the. minimum requirements. The University Admissions
Committee is the agency at the University of Florida that
is responsible for the admission of undergraduate stu-
dents under this exception policy.
The admission requirements were derived from
careful analysis of student experiences over a period of
many 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 aca-
demic work at the University of Florida.
The University Admissions Committee is respon-
sible for administering all admissions to the University
and its various components, including applicants ap-
proved as exceptions to the minimum admission re-
quirements set forth in this catalog.
Students who are planning to enter the University
of Florida for the first time will be considered for admis-
sion as follows.
1. Beginning Freshmen: students who have never
attended college. (See following section, ADMIS-
SION AS A FRESHMAN)
2. Undergraduate Transfers: students who have
previously attended any college or university, re-
gardless of amount of time spent in attendance or
credit earned, but who have not received a
Bachelor's degree. (See following section, ADMIS-
SION AS A TRANSFER STUDENT TO UNDER-
GRADUATE SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES)
3. Postbaccalaureate Students: students who have
received a Bachelor's degree but do not wish to be
admitted to graduate study. (See following section,
ADMISSION AS A POSTBACCALAUREATE STU-
DENT)
4. Graduate Students: candidates for Master's or
Doctor's degrees. (See following section, ADMIS-
SION TO GRADUATE SCHOOL)
5. Dental Students: candidates for admission to the
College of Dentistry. (See following section, AD-
MISSION TO COLLEGE OF DENTISTRY)
6. Law Students: candidates for admission to the
Juris Doctor program in the College of Law. (See
following section, ADMISSION TO THE COLLEGE
OF LAW)
7. Medical Students: candidates for admission to
the College of Medicine. (See following section,
ADMISSION TO THE COLLEGE OF MEDICINE)
8. Veterinary Medicine Students: candidates for
admission to the College of Veterinary Medicine.

LEGE OF VETERINARY MEDICINE)
9. Special Students: applicants who do not fall in
one of the above categories. (See following section,
ADMISSION AS A SPECIAL STUDENT)
10. Transient Students: applicants who wish to en-
roll for one term only in order to complete work for
transfer back to parent institution. (See following
section, ADMISSION AS A TRANSI ENT STUDENT)


TRAVELING SCHOLAR
PROGRAM

The Traveling Scholar Program affords graduate
students at State University System institutions an oppor-
tunity to take coursework or conduct research activities
at any of the other institutions in the System. Coursework
taken under the auspices of the Traveling Scholar Pro-
gram at another university in the System will apply for
graduate credit at the student's home institution. The
deans of the graduate schools of the state universities are
the coordinators of the program. For details regarding
the Traveling Scholar Program and approval to partici-
pate in it, students mustapplytothe dean of thegraduate
school on their home campus.

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 labora-
tories, overseas study programs, and library collections.
Coursework taken under the Undergraduate
Interinstitutional Registration Program will be accepted
for credit at the student's home institution. Students
must be recommended to participate in the program by
their own academic dean, who will initiate a visiting
arrangement with the appropriate dean at the host
institution.

MEDICAL IMMUNIZATIONS
REQUIREMENT

Each student accepted for admission shall submit,
prior to registration, proof of immunization for the two
shot measles requirement and the one shot rubella
requirement. When the application for admission is
approved, a form will be forwarded for the student to
complete and return. No student will be allowed to
register until the AdmissionsOffice has received theform
and it has been forwarded to and approved by the
University Student Health Service.

ADMISSION AS A FRESHMAN
(APPLICANTS WHO HAVE NEVER ATTENDED
COLLEGE)
When to Apply: 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 provided for qualified
applicants whose applications and supporting records
are received in the Admissions Office prior to February
1st. Applications for the fall class received after February
1st will be considered on a "space-available" basis only.
The deadlines for receipt of applications for other terms
are listed in the University Calendar.
Admission of students is on a selective basis. The
availability of community colleges and other state univer-
sities in Florida has caused the Board of Regents to assign
to the University of Florida a role in the total state system
of higher education which demands that the entering
freshman class be limited in number. Such limitation
does not prevent students from subsequently applying for
admission to upper division and professional schools of
the University since they may attend community 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.

Please note: Applicants who present scores on the
G.E.D. (General Equivalency Diploma) for satisfaction of
the high school graduation requirement mustalso present
records from secondary schools attended and test scores
in order to be considered for admission. The applicant's
overall academic background as manifested in these
records will be considered in the decision-making pro-
cess. Any Florida student who meets the above mini-
mum admission requirements and is interested in at-
tending the University of Florida is urged to submit an
application. 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 including
grades, test scores, educational objective and pattern of
courses completed, rank in class, school recommenda-


tion, and personal record will be considered in the
selection process.
Composite pictures of the Scholastic Aptitude Test
(SAT) results of recent freshman classes at the University
of Florida indicate that more than 50 percent score 500
or above on the verbal section and more than 75 percent
score 500 or above on the math section. In addition,
more than 50 percent of each entering class has earned
a B+ or better average in high school academic subjects.
While there is no minimum grade average or test score
which in itself assures a student of admission or success
in college, prospective applicants are urged to discuss
the meaning and implication of these data with their
school counselors when considering the University of
Florida.

B. REQUIREMENTS FOR
ADMISSION-NON-FLORIDA STUDENTS
Because of a limited entering freshman class each
fall, only a small number of highly qualified students from
states other than Florida may be admitted.

OTHER INFORMATION OF
INTEREST TO PROSPECTIVE
FRESHMAN APPLICANTS
Early Admission
Applications for Early Admission (i.e., admission
following completion of the junior year in high school)
from superior students are encouraged and will be
considered on an individual basis by the University's
Admissions Committee. Applications should be submit-

(ACT). Generally a score of approximately 600 on
each section of the SAT or a composite score of 28
on the ACT is expected.
4. A letter of recommendation from the student's
high school principal or guidance counselor. The
letter should give specific reasons as to why the
applicant would profit more from Early Admission
than by completion of the senior year in high
school.
An applicant for Early Admission may be required
to come to the campus for interviews by members of the
Admissions Committee before a decision is made on the
application. The Admissions Office will advise the appli-

UNDERGRADUATE SCHOOLS
AND COLLEGES

(APPLICANTS WHO HAVE ATTENDED ANY COL-
LEGEORUNIVERSITY,REGARDLESSOFTHEAMOUNT
OFTIMESPENTINATTENDANCEORCREDIT EARNED,
ARE CONSIDERED TRANSFER STUDENTS.)
When toApply: 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 pertainingtothe individual college
to which they intend to apply, for specific information
regarding application deadlines. (NOTE: In a number of
undergraduate programs, the sequence of professional
courses begins ONLY in the fall term of the junior year.)
An applicant who waits until the last possible date to file
an application may find that it is impossible to furnish
the necessary supporting records in time to permit a
decision for the term that admission is desired.
In this section are listed the general requirements
for admission of undergraduate transfer students. It
should be observed, however, thatADMISSION TOTHE
UNIVERSITY IS A SELECTIVE PROCESS AND SATISFY-
ING THESE GENERAL REQUIREMENTS DOES NOT
GUARANTEE ACCEPTANCE. Attention is also directed
to the fact that upper division colleges of the University
have established enrollment quotas because of limita-
tions of space and facilities. Upper division transfer
applicants who meet the minimum admission require-
ments will be referred to the selection committee of the
appropriate College for consideration of their enroll-
ment.
A transfer applicant should refer to the General
Information and Colleges sections of this catalog for an
explanation of the academic organization of the Univer-
sity. (See the Table of Contents.)
If an applicant is accepted for admission, courses
which reasonably parallel the curriculum of the Univer-
sity of Florida that were completed with grades of D or
higher at other regionally accredited institutions are
acceptable for transfer credit. It is the prerogative of the
college (within the University) that administers the work
for the degree being sought to determine how transfer
credit may be used in satisfying that degree's specific
course requirements. Not more than 64 semester hours
(or 96 quarter hours) of credit transferred from orthrough
a community college may be applied toward the total








ADMISSIONS


credit hours required for a University of Florida degree.
Courses completed at a community college in excess of
a total of 64 semester hours may serve to meet specific
course requirements for a University of Florida degree
but the credit hours represented by those courses will
not reduce the number of credit hours to be completed
at the University.

A. FLORIDA PUBLIC COMMUNITY COLLEGE
GRADUATES
This section applies ONLY to students seeking to
transfer directly from a Florida public community college
with the Associate of Arts degree in a university parallel
program. All other community college applicants and
undergraduate transfer applicants from four-year col-
leges and universities should consult Section B which
follows.

The University of Florida subscribes to the articula-
tion agreement between the state universities and public
community colleges of Florida. Under this agreement,
any graduate of a state approved, Florida public com-
munity college is eligible for admission to nonlimited
access programs at the University if the student has
completed the university parallel program and received
the Associate of Arts degree, provided the degree has
been awarded on the basis of the following:
1. At least 60 semester hours of academic work
exclusive of occupational courses;
2. An approved general education program of at
least 36 semester hours;
3. A grade point average of at least 2.0 on a 4.0
system on all college level academic courses at-
tempted.
4. By law all applicants must have completed two
sequential courses of foreign language in secondary
school orthe equivalent of such atthe post second-
ary level.
By law, all applicants seeking admission to a pro-
gram 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 applica-
tion 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
applicants 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 preprofessional courses not completed at the
junior college. However, such courses wil not reduce
the number of credits required in the upper division for
a degree.

B. TRANSFER APPLICANTS OTHER THAN
GRADUATES FROM A FLORIDA PUBLIC COM-
MUNITY COLLEGE
This section applies to students seeking to transfer
from a Florida public community 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 applicant must have been eligible for admission


to the University of Florida asa Beginning Freshman
in order to be considered foradmission tothe lower
division as a transfer student. (See section, AD-
MISSION 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 ad-
mission to the University of Florida.
3. Satisfactory record: An applicant must have an
average of C or higher (as computed by the Univer-
sity of Florida) on all work attempted at each
institution previously attended. No application can
be considered until complete official transcripts of
all the applicant's undergraduate work are in the
possession of the Admissions Office. An official
transcript must be 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 conduct record: An applicant must
present a satisfactory conduct record. Regardless of
other qualifications, an applicant who has experi-
enced serious or continuingdifficulty with school or
other authorities because of improperconduct may
find his or her application disapproved.

II. Requirements for Admission to an
Upper Division College
With the exception of Item 1, an applicant for
admission 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 applica-
tion for admission has been submitted. Some colleges

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 sat-
isfied.
1. Advanced standing credit: An applicant must
present a minimum of 60 semester hours (or 90
quarter hours) of acceptable college courses, not
more than four semester hours of which are in

present the courses listed as required for admission
by the upper division college of his or her choice, or
acceptable substitutes, as part of the courses of-
fered for advanced standingcredit. (Seeapporpriate
college section of this catalog.) Upon recommenda-
tion 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 all other requirements for admis-
sion are met; however, such lower division courses
will not reduce the number of credits required in
the upper division for a degree.
3. College Level Academic Skills Test: By law, all
applicants admitted in a degree-seeking status to an
Upper Division College atan institution in the State
University System of Florida must have satisfactorily
completed the College Level Academic Skills Test

ary level.

C. TRANSFER CREDIT POLICY
If an applicant is accepted for undergraduate trans-
fer admission, courses completed at other regionally
accredited institutions of higher education with grades
of D or higher which reasonably parallel the curriculum
at the University of Florida will be accepted for transfer
credit. The determination of how transfer credit may be
used to satisfy the specific course requirements for a
degree is the prerogative of the college within the
University that administers the work for the degree
sought.
Substantially equivalent courses applicable to the
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
college afterthe student has earned a total of 64 semester
hours (or 96 quarter hours) of acceptable transfer credit
at all institutions attended will not be accepted for
transfer credit at the University of Florida. The courses
represented by such credit hours will be recorded on the
student's University of Florida record and may be used
to satisfy experience requirements but such courses will
not reduce the number of credit hours to be completed
in the upper division at the University of Florida in order
to eam a degree.

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 requirements are made only
when these and other criteria including letters of recom-
mendation are reviewed and recommended by the
department and approved by the college and the Dean
for Graduate Studies and Research.

students for a given academic year, up to ten percent
may be admitted as exceptions. Students admitted as
exceptions under the ten percent 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 of recommenda-
tion from colleagues, satisfactory performance in a speci-
fied number of graduate courses taken as
postbaccalaureate students, or practical experience in
the discipline for a specified period of time.

may be granted conditional admission to The Graduate
School. Students may be granted conditional admission
to defer final admission decisions until requisite exami-
nation scores or final grade records are available. Stu-
dents may also be granted conditional admission to
ascertain their ability to pursue graduate work at the


University of Florida if previous grade records or Gradu-
ate 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 admitted. When these conditions have
been satisfied, the department must notify the student
in writing, sending a copy to The Graduate School.
Eligible coursework taken while a student is in condi-
tional status is applicable toward a graduate degree.
Students failing to meet any condition of admission
will be barred from further registration.

ADMISSION TO
THE COLLEGE OF DENTISTRY

When to Apply: The Application Request Card for
the American Association of Dental Schools Application
Service (AADSAS) may be obtained after May 15 from
the Office of Admissions, College of Dentistry, University

evaluated by the Dental Admissions Committee and
promising applicants will be sent formal application
forms which request additional information. The sub-
mission of a preprofessional committee evaluation or
letters of recommendation from people in academics
will not be necessary until the formal application forms

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 stu-
dent of Dentistry must possess a high basic aptitude
supplemented by an academic preparation of the high-
est order because of the vast area of science which must
be mastered by the dentist. The highly personal rela-
tionship 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 recruit-
ment program. TheCollege strictlyadherestothe 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 consideration for
admission to the College of Dentistry.
All applicants must take the Dental Admission Test,
preferably in the spring precedingthe submission of their
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 Committee, interviews with
members of this committee will be arranged for com-
petitive applicants.

bility to secure such approval as the parent institution
may require.
Transient students are registered as NONDEGREE
students and no application for admission is required.
The appropriate forms for enrolling as a NONDEGREE
student should be requested from the Office of the
University Registrar. Since registration is subject to the
availability of space, approval to enroll as a nondegree
student cannot be given prior to the first day of classes
in the term for which the student wishes to enroll.
Credit earned in a NONDEGREE status is not au-
tomatically applicable to a University of Florida degree
should the student later be admitted in a regular status.
Admission as a NONDEGREE student in no way implies
future admission as a regular student to the University
of Florida.

commissions and foundations, at Binational Centers,
and from many private organizations such as the Institute
of International Education (IIE), America-Mideast Edu-
cation and Training Services, Inc. (AMIDEAST), African
American Institute (AAI), and the American-Korean
Foundation. Candidates who cannot obtain information
locally on TOEFL, GRE, GMAT, or SAT should write:

APPLICATION FEE
Each application for admission must be accompa-
nied by a nonrefundable application fee of $15 (U.S.
currency). An application will not be processed without

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 can-
not be given until ALL required credentials as indicated
in the section APPLYING FOR ADMISSION are received
by the Admissions Office. All documents must be ac-
companied by certified English translations and become
the property of the University. Credentials of applicants
who do not enroll will be destroyed and cannot be
returned or forwarded elsewhere.
IMPORTANT: Send all applications and credentials to
the Admissions Office, P. O. Box 2946, University of
Florida, Gainesville, Florida 32602-2946, U.SA.

INSURANCE
International students attending the University of
Florida are required to hold health and accident insur-
ance as a condition of enrollment. Such insurance must
be payable in U.S. dollars and not limited to use in a
particular hospital, clinic, agency or institution delivering
health care. Failure to comply may result in cancellation
of registration.

NOTICE OF ADMISSION
If a student's application for admission to the Uni-
versity of Florida is approved, an official notice of ac-
ceptance will be sent by the University. Admission is for
a SPECIFIC term. If a student is unable to enroll for the
term indicated in the notice of acceptance, theAdmissions
Office should be informed immediately. If the student
wishes to be considered forentrance to a different term,
the Admissions Office must be advised. Under no cir-
cumstances should an applicant make definite plans to
depart for Gainesville until officially notified by the
University thatapproval 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 or her own risk. The student's
presence on campus will not influence the decision 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 ap-
proved for admission.

CLASSIFICATION OF
STUDENTS-FLORIDA OR
NON-FLORIDA

(Section 6C-7.005, 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 purposes" 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 estab-
lished 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
establish 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 main-
taininga bona fide domicile in accordance with
the provisions of Section 240.1201 (2)(b), Florida
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 provi-
sions of Section 240.1201(4), Florida Statutes.
Prima facie evidence may be reinforced or
rebutted by evidence of residency, age, and the
general circumstances of the individual in ac-
cordance with the provisions of Rule 6C-
7.005(2).
(c) In making domiciliary determinations re-
lated to the classification of persons as residents
or nonresidents for tuition purposes, the do-
micile of a married person, irrespective of sex,
shall be determined in accordance with the
provisions of Section 240.1201(5), Florida Stat-
utes.
(d) Any nonresident person, irrespective of sex,
who marries 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, accedetothe benefitof thespouse's
immediately precedent duration as a legal resi-
dent for purposes of satisfying the 12-month
durational requirement.
(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 serving, in the Armed Forces outside
this state.
(f) A person who has been properly classified as
a resident 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 residence
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 oth-
erwise livingapart 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 depen-
dent pursuant to federal individual income tax
provisions.
(h) Any person who ceases to be enrolled at or
graduates from an institution of higher educa-
tion while classified as a resident for tuition
purposes and who subsequently abandons
Florida domicile shall be permitted to reenroll
atan institution of higher education in this state
as a resident for tuition purposes in accordance
with the provisions of Section 240.1201(10),
Florida Statutes.
(i) A member of the Armed Forces on active
duty stationed in Florida, and the spouse and
dependents of such member, shall be classified
as residents for tuition purposes.
(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 evi-
dence as to his or her legal residence and
domicile to appropriate university officials. In
determining residency, the university shall re-
quire evidence such as a voter registration,
driver's license, automobile registration, loca-
Stion of bank account, rent receipts or any other
relevant materialsas evidence thatthe applicant
has maintained 12 months residence immedi-
ately 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
university 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 thespouse's legal residence
with certified copies of the aforementioned
documents. "Resident student" classification
shall also be construed to include students to
whom an Immigration Parolee card or a Form
1-94 (Parole Edition) was issued at least one year
prior to the first day of classes forwhich resident
student status is sought, or who have had their
resident alien status approved by the United
States Immigration and Naturalization Service,
or who hold an Immigration and Naturalization
Form 1-151, 1-551 or a notice of an approved
adjustment of status application, or Cuban
Nationals or Vietnamese Refugees or other
refugees or asylees so designated by the United
States Immigration and Naturalization Service
who are considered as ResidentAliens, or other
legal aliens, provided such students meet the


residence requirements stated above and com-
ply with subsection (4) below. The burden of
establishing facts which justify classification of a
student as a resident and domiciliary entitled to
"residentfortuition purposes" registration rates
is on the applicant for such classification.
(3) In applying this policy:
(a) "Student" shall mean a person admitted to
the institution, 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 guard-
ian 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 institution 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 appli-
cant is a bona fide resident and domiciliary of
the state of Florida, entitled as such to classifi-
cation as a "resident for tuition purposes"
under the terms and conditions prescribed for
residents and domiciliaries of thestateof Florida.
All claims to "resident for tuition purposes"
classification must be supported byevidence as
stated in 6C-7.005(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 resi-
dent, ratherthan forthe purpose of maintaining
a mere temporary residence of abode incident
to enrollment in an institution for highereduca-
tion, may applyfor and be granted classification
as a "resident for tuition purposes," provided,
however, that those students who are nonresi-
dent aliens or who are in the United States on
a nonimmigration visa will not be entitled to
reclassification. An application for reclassifica-
tion as a "resident for tuition purposes" shall
complywith provisions of subsection (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-7.005(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 re-
quired to establish residence for tuition pur-
poses. 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 accom-
panied by a certified copy of a declaration of
intent to establish legal domicile in the state,
which intent must have been filed with the
Clerk of the Circuit Court, as provided by
Section 222.17, Florida Statutes. If the request
for reclassification and the necessary docu-
mentation is not received by the registrar prior
to the last day of registration for the term in
which the student intends to be reclassified, the
student will not be reclassified for that term.
(6) Appeal from a determination denying "resident
for tuition purposes" status to applicant there-
fore may be initiated after appropriate admin-
istrative remedies are exhausted by the filing of








EXPENSES


a petition for review pursuantto Section 120.68
Florida Statutes.
(7) Any student granted status as a "resident for
tuition purposes," which status is based on a
sworn statement which is false shall, upon
determination of such falsity, besubjectto such
disciplinarysanctionsas may be imposed bythe
president of the university.

Service Fees-The University may waive the student
health fee, athletic fee, and activity and service fee for
students enrolled in a special program (e.g., Utrecht,

cial Services, on or before the fee payment deadline
shown in the front of this catalog for the semesters
requested. Requests submitted after that date will not be
honored nor will refunds be issued. It will be the respon-
sibility of the student's college to notify the students who
are eligible. Health, Athletic and Activity and Service
Fees will only be waived as a single unit. The student may
not waive specific fees such as only the health fee.

Waiver of Late Fees-A student who believes that
any of the late charges should not be assessed, because
of University error or because extraordinary circum-
stances prevented all conceivable means of complying
with established deadlines, may petition for a waiver of
the late fees by submitting a petition for the waiver with
the appropriate office as follows:
Late Registration Fee: Office of the University
Registrar
Late Payment Fee: University Financial Services

vent the student from receiving grades, transcripts or a
diploma, and his/her registration will be denied for
future terms until the account has been settled in full.

Deferral of Registration and Tuition Fees

cancellation of registration for nonpayment of fees prior
to the established deadline, or the late payment fee. The

from students in the following circumstances:
1. Students whose State or Federal financial assis-
tance is delayed due to circumstances beyond the
control of the student.
2. Veterans and other eligible students receiving

STUDENT HOUSING
The University of Florida offers resident students a
unique and exciting residence hall program. Living on
campus is a profitable educational experience that stu-
dents will long remember. The Division of Housing
provides accommodations and programs to meet the
needs of students while promoting the overall educa-
tional goals and objectives of the University.
The University of Florida has a large resident popu-
lation of both in-state and out-of-state students, as well
as students from 100 different foreign countries. Since
studentscomefromdifferingenvironmental backgrounds
and social experiences, they bring with them varying
needs and expectations. Because of this diversity in the
student body, itwould be a disservice to students to take
a unilateral approach in developing the residence hall
program. Therefore, the Division of Housing has devel-
oped a program based upon alternatives and choices.
Students may select from various housing accommoda-
tions and environments that best fit their needs.

GENERAL INFORMATION
All freshmen whoare admitted to the University will
receive a housing application card with their formal


letter of admission from the Admissions Office until
housing facilities are full.
The University of Florida has no residency require-
ment for freshmen attending the University for the first
time during the fall semester. Freshmen entering the

on-campus housing. Entering students are free to choose
either on-campus or off-campus accommodations. Stu-
dents who voluntarily contract for on-campus housing
normally must do so for the entire academicyear (August
to May) if enrolled. However, residents should be full-
time students to be eligible to reside in the residence
halls. Full-time enrollment for residence is defined as
being enrolled in 12 semester credit hours if an under-
graduate and 9 semester credit hours if a graduate
student.
All students other than beginning freshmen must
initiate their own arrangements for housing either by (1)
applying to: Assignments Office, Division of Housing
University of Florida, Gainesville, Fl 32611, or (2) obtain-
ing accommodations in private housing. (See Off-Cam-
pus Housing later in this section.)
All correspondence concerning application for Uni-
versity 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 twelve 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. Applica-
tion requests are considered first-come, first-served, on
a space-available basis.
Roommate requests will be considered if the indi-
viduals wishing to room together submit their housing
agreements clearly indicating their desire to room to-
gether and elect the same visitation choice and assign-
ment 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
A wide range of room styles are available at the
University of Florida to meet the varying needs of
students. The most prevalent is the double room which
is found in every area except Beaty Towers. Doubles
accommodate two residents.
All rooms have closet(s), storage space, dresser(s),
bed(s) and mattress(es), study desk(s) and chairss.
Room rates vary depending on such features as air

a study and living area, the other as a bedroom with
lavatory. Renovated suites for two in Fletcher and Sledd
Halls are similar except they are smaller, are air-condi-
tioned, and do not contain lavatories. Thomas Hall does
not have suites for two.

THE RESIDENCE HALL STAFF
AND STUDENT GOVERNMENT

mural athletic programs to supplementing the various
academic and development programs. In addition,
staff supervise and enforce policies designed to create
an atmosphere conducive to learning and growth.
Each floor or section is supervised by a resident
assistant, the RA. Working in close conjunction with the
RA is a graduate hall director or professional residence
director who coordinates the area activities and ensures,
through the RAs, an environment for learning. The
Assistant Director of Housing for Residence Life is a
professional staff member who is responsible for the
overall administrative and educational functions within
the residence area. The entire housing staff is committed
to serving students in the most effective and responsible
way possible. Students are why the staff exists, and their
development is the primary goal.

INTER-RESIDENCE HALL ASSOCIATION
All students in the residence halls are encouraged
to participate in organizational activities which can play
a significant part in their educational, cultural, social, and
recreational life. The Inter-Residence Hall Association
was established to help stimulate this participation. IRHA
represents the collective interests of all resident students.
This organization also serves as a channel of communi-
cation between residence area government councils,
the University community, and other outside interests.
This self-government program at both the hall and area
levels offers residents the opportunity to help establish
guidelines for group living and to assist in the planning
of social and educational activities for their fellow stu-
dents.

STUDENT FINANCIAL AFFAIRS
The Office for Student Financial Affairs (SFA) coor-
dinates and administers most student financial aid pro-
grams at the University of Florida and provides financial
assistance and counseling to University of Florida stu-
dents.
SFA awards aid to students according to financial
need-the difference between current educational costs
and what individual students can pay toward these costs.
The University of Florida uses nationally recognized
need analysis services to evaluate financial need for UF
students from information they and their families supply
on their financial aid applications.

What Is Financial Aid?
Financial aid is money provided to students and
theirfamilies as either "giftaid" or "self-help" to helppay
college costs. "Gift aid," as the name implies, is free
money such as scholarships and grants. Students do not
have to repay these awards. "Self-help" programs in-
clude loans and employment and are so namedbecause
students must repay loans and must work for money
awarded through employment programs. Awards to
students consist of scholarships, grants, loans and work,
singly or as a package.

When To Apply
Applications are available January 1 each year, and
students need to send their forms to the appropriate
processor as soon as possible after that date. 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 early, so to be considered for this
assistance students should apply as soon as possible after
January 1. A few programs such as the Pell Grant
program, Stafford Student Loans (GSL), and OPS em-
ployment are open for application throughout the year
(see Important Deadlines below).
SFA cannot award financial aid to students until they
have been officially admitted to the University of Florida.
However, students should not wait to be admitted to
apply for aid but should apply as soon as possible after
January 1 each year.

How To Apply
Financial aid applications are not sent to students
automatically when they apply for admission. For appli-
cations and detailed procedures for applying, write to
University of Florida, Office for Student Financial Affairs,
S-103 Criser Hall, Gainesville, Florida 32611-2058, or
call (904) 392-1275. Applications are also available from
most Florida community colleges and high school guid-
ance offices.
Students must complete and submit a University of
Florida Application for Financial Aid to the Office for
Student Financial Affairs and either a College Scholar-
ship Service (CSS) Financial Aid Form (FAF) or an Ameri-
can College Testing Service (ACT) Family Financial State-
ment (FFS) to the processor at the address indicated on
the form. We will also accept need analyses from United
Student Aid Services and from CSX Commercial Ser-
vices, Inc. For your application to be considered "on
time," your financial ata must reach us from the pro-
cessor no later than April 15. Be sure to allow for at least
three weeks processingtime at the need analysis agency.
A Financial Aid Transcript from all previously attended
institutions is required for all transfer students for their
files to be considered complete. When completing
1991-92 forms, students should provide accurate finan-
cial figures, taken directly from completed 1990 income
tax forms. To comply with federal financial aid require-
ments, the Office for Student Financial Affairs mustverify
information students and parents supply on their appli-
cation forms. Incorrect information or incorrectly com-
pleted application forms can cause aid to be delayed or
denied.Students should keep copies of all their financial
aid documents.

Important Deadlines
Financial aid applications should be completed and
sentto the appropriate processor as soon as possible after
January 1. April 15 is the on-time deadline for us to
receive your information from the need analysis agency
(e.g., the College Scholarship Service). Students who
wish to be considered for campus-based and institu-
tional programs (such as College Work-Study, Perkins
Loans, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants,
Turner Grants, and University Loans) must be sure to
apply early, since these funds are limited. To be
considered for a Florida Student Assistance Grant, stu-
dents must make sure that the need analysis processor,
CSS OR ACT, receives their application by April 15.
Stafford Student Loan on-time deadlines are set by
semester. For instance, the on-time deadline for applying
for an insured loan for Fall 1991 is May 20. Individual
colleges within the University and private organizations
have their own deadlines for applying for aid.

Graduate Aid
Graduate students at the University of Florida may
be eligible for part-time employment and loans through
SFA and/or for assistantships and fellowships through
their colleges. To apply for College Work-Study and
loans, graduate students must follow the procedures in

are not based on need and are available through the
Student Employment Office. For other graduate aid such


as fellowships and assistantships, students should apply
through the Graduate School and the Dean's office of
their colleges.

Types of Aid
SCHOLARSHIPS are awarded based on academic
performance and financial need. SFA awards a limited
number of scholarships to academically outstanding
undergraduates with documented need. Most academic
achievementscholarshipsareawarded throughtheOffice
of Admissions. Individual colleges within the University
also offer scholarships to undergraduates. For informa-
tion on these, students should contact the dean of their
college. Many private donors offer scholarships, select-
ing the recipients) directly; students should check with
civic clubs, service organizations, private corporations,
and other resources in their home community.
GRANTS are awarded to undergraduate students
with financial need. The three largest grant programs
available at UF are the federally-funded Pell Grant and
Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant programs
and the state-funded Florida Student Assistance Grant.
Awards range from $100 to $4,000.
LOANS. Atthe University of Florida, undergraduate
students can apply for the following student loans:
Stafford Student Loans (formerly GSL), University of
Florida Institutional Loans, Perkins Loans (NDL), and
Supplemental Loans for Students (SLS). Parents of de-
pendent undergraduates can also take out educational
loans for their son or daughter through the Parent Loans
to Undergraduate Students (PLUS) program. These pro-
grams offer long-term, low-interest loans that must be
repaid when the borrower graduates, withdraws, or
drops to less than half-time enrollment.
Loans range from $100to $5,000 an academic year
at interest rates from 0% to 12% annually. The actual
amount of each loan except for PLUS is based on
financial need as determined from information the
borrower provides on the FAF or FFS.
The University also has a Short-Term Loan program
to help students meet temporary financial needs related
to educational expenses. Students may borrow up to
$400 or the amount of in-state tuition if they have an
acceptable repayment source. Interest is 1% per month
and these loans must be repaid by the first day of the last
month in the semester in which the money is borrowed.
The Short Term Loan office is in Criser Hall.
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 com-
munity. Students normally work 15-20 hours a week, 4
or 5 daysaweek, and earn atleast minimum wage. Most
hiring departments help students arrange their working
hours around their academic schedule.

house for part-time employment and coordinates three
employment programs: the College Work-Study Pro-
gram, Other Personnel Services (OPS), and Off-Campus

authority to the Student Government has been the
disposition of UF students to accept responsibility com-
mensurate with the resources at its disposal to fulfill its
mission, including the allocation of approximately four-
and-one-half million dollars per year in student activity
and service fees, substantial authority in the regulation
of co-curricular activities, and administration of the
Student Honor and Traffic Courts. The University of
Florida faculty and staff feel that training in acceptance
of responsibility for the conduct of student affairs at the
University is a valuable part of the educational growth
and development of the individual student.
Student Government is a body politic, occupying its
franchise under grant from the Board of Regents and
subject to its continued approval. Student Government
is patterned on the state and national form of govern-
ment 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 President and the Treasurer of the Student Body.
Members of all three branches are elected directly by the
Student Body, of which all UF students are members. In
addition to elected offices, many appointed positions
have been established in Student Government, includ-
ing Cabinet and sub-Cabinet, Student Honor Court, and
the Traffic Court posts.
Student Government, recognizing its limitations as
a true "government,"attempts to exercise influence on
governments at all levels through conferences, lobbying,
research, and the advancement of proposals for change.
Students may apply for various positions within the
student government structure by contacting the Student
Government offices on the third floor of the J. Wayne
Reitz Union.
Student Senate: The Student Senate is composed of
representatives selected from the colleges and living
areas on and off the campus and, in general, acts as the
Legislative Branch of Student Government.
Religious Activities: The University of Florida wel-
comes te contributions of religious traditions to the
campus community. The churches, centers, and orga-
nizations associated with the University offer a rich
variety of programs and ministries. There are also inter-
denominational and non-denominational activities fos-
tered by the Department of Religion and the Campus
Ministries Cooperative.
Social Fraternities: Thirty-two national social frater-
nities have established chapters at the University. 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 Sigma Phi, Delta Tau Delta, Delta
Upsilon, Kappa Alpha, Kappa Alpha Psi, Kappa Sigma,

Tau, Pi KappaAlpha, Pi Kappa Phi, Pi Lambda Phi, Sigma
Alpha Epsilon, Sigma Alpha Mu, Sigma Chi, Sigma Nu,
Sigma Phi Epsilon, Sigma Pi, Tau Epsilon Phi, Tau Kappa
Epsilon, and Theta Chi.


Twenty women's sororities have established chap-
ters at the University. Fifteen have built chapter houses
and five 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 chap-
ters 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
Delta Delta, Delta Gamma, Delta Phi Epsilon, Delta
Sigma Theta, Kappa Alpha Theta, Kappa Delta, Kappa
Kappa Gamma, Phi Sigma Sigma, Pi Beta Phi, Sigma

Alpha.
In addition to the above listed social fraternities and
sororities, there are approximately 170 honorary or
professional organizations and approximately 200 spe-
cial interest (non-academic) organizations.

ACADEMIC HONESTY
The University of Florida expects students to be
honest in all of their University classwork. Therefore,
students are required to commit themselves to academic
honesty by signing the following statement as part of the
admissions process.
"I understand that the University of Florida expects
its students to be honest in all of their academic work.
I agree to adhere to this commitment to academic
honesty, and understand that my failure to comply with
this commitment may result in disciplinary action, up to
and including expulsion from the University."
This statement serves to remind students of the
obligations they assume as students at the University of
Florida. Matters of violations of academic honesty are
adjudicated by the Student Honor Court, the Health
Center Student Conduct Standards Committee, and
faculty.

provided the student agrees to accept conduct proba-
tion or suspension, depending upon the gravity of the
offense. Such probation or suspension will be deter-
mined and activated by the Director of Student Judicial
Affairs and will remain in force until such time as the

tion or of the Student Conduct Code which
includes the Academic Honesty Guidelines prior
to the completion of the probation period, he/
she may receive expulsion or any other lesser

ousness of the violation.

spondence 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. No more than one-fourth of the total credit
required for the degree may be extension work. 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 ex-
tension work is permitted provided that approval
has been obtained from the dean of the college in
which the student is registered.
10. 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, students who have taken work at an advanced
level cannot receive credit for work taken subsequently
at a lower level.
11. Registration of Graduate Students: Students must
be registered in the University for the term in which
the candidate's final examination is given and at the
time they receive a degree.
12. Application for Degree: Students expecting to
graduate must file an application for the degree in the
Office of the University Registrar on or before the date
indicated in the current University Calendar. Students
must apply in the semester in which they expect to
graduate, regardless of applications in previous semes-
ters.
13. Recommendation of the Faculty of the College
Awarding the Degree.
14. Dean's Certification: The dean of the college offer-
ing the course of study certifies that all requirements
have been completed and that the student was recom-
mended by the faculty of said college.
15. Two Degrees: Two different degrees of the same
rank, e.g., B.A. and B.S., may be conferred upon the
same individual provided that the second degree repre-
sents at least 30 credits of additional work, with the
necessary qualitative and residence requirements.
16. Time-Shortened Degree Opportunities: A variety of
programs 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 require-
ments. These opportunities include several credit by
examination programs and other options. For specific
information, refer to the section Time-Shortened De-
gree Opportunities. Also refer to the college sections for
additional information.
17. Pending Charge of Academic Dishonesty or Code of
Student Conduct Violation: No degree will be conferred
upon a student against whom there is pending an
unresolved charge of either academic dishonesty or
Code of Student Conduct violation 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 is resolved and degree require-
ments are met.








STUDENT ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


MAXIMUM AND MINIMUM
LOAD
Some colleges have a maximum load which is stated
in the college section of the catalog. In the absence of
such a statement, the general University 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 credits. The
minimum load for a six-week summer term is 6, and for
the twelve-week term 12. Postbaccalaureate students
are considered undergraduates.
Simultaneous enrollment in correspondence courses
or extension work at another college or university is
counted in computing the maximum but not the mini-
mum load.
At the time of registration, a student, upon the
approval of college 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, without successfully petitioning the
college. The minimum load for full-time benefits from
the Veterans Administration or Social Security is 12
credits per semester for undergraduate students.

DUAL ENROLLMENT
1. Definition: Dual Enrollment, as used in this regu-
lation, refers to a student taking on-campus courses
simultaneously at BOTH the University of Florida and
another institution. Special regulationsgovern high school/
college dual-creditenrollmentfor academically advanced
students in Florida high schools; see additional informa-
tion under Time-Shortened Degree Opportunities.
2. Dual Enrollment will be permitted ONLY under
the following conditions:
A. Approval in writing for the dual enrollment must
have been secured by the student from the appro-
priate official at EACH institution. A copy of such
approval must be furnished to the Office of the
University Registrar at the time of registration.
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 avail-
able at the parent institution which might be evalu-
ated 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 institu-
tion.
C. Priority in assignmentto classes atthe University
of Florida will be given to regularly enrolled stu-
dents.
D. Students taking courses at the University of
Florida will be required to register and attend
classes under the University of Florida calendar.
E. Students will pay appropriate fees at the Univer-
sity of Florida based on the number of credits for
which they are registered at this institution.
It is the student's responsibility to ensure that an
official transcript of work completed under a dual reg-
istration is forwarded to the parent institution. Certifica-
tion 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 and who has
not applied for admission to the University of Florida
may, with college approval, register for only one semes-


ter as a nondegree student. Faculty and staff members,
high school/college dual-credit enrollees, 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 Office
of the University Registrar.

GRADES
Results of students' work are recorded in the Office
of the University Registrar 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, U-Unsatisfactory,
and WF-Withdrew failing. Grades of I or X (absent from
examination) assigned prior to the Fall 1990 term are
also considered as failing grades. Effective Fall 1990 a
grade of I or X is not considered failing for the term in
which it is received. If it has not been changed by the
end of the subsequent term, it will be countedas a failing
grade and used in the computation of the student's grade
point average.
In special situations where it is not possible to assign
a regular grade 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, student 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 as a result of an approved petition to the college
dean 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 o an action taken in a course and
will appear on the student's transcript.
The degree-granting college may require a mini-
mum 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 ofC+ and
C in courses below 5000-level are acceptable for credit
toward graduate degrees only if the total program meets
the B average requirement. C+ and C grades in 5000-
level courses and above counttoward a graduate degree
only if an equal number of credits in courses numbered
5000 or above have been earned with grades of B+ and
A, respectively.

SATISFACTORY-UNSATISFACTORY
GRADE OPTION
The University encourages students to receive as
broad an education as possible. Therefore, students are
encouraged to take courses in disciplines in which they
may not have the proper background. The S-U option
is designed to be used with courses that are NOT
introductory courses. They may take such coursework
as electives and receive a grade of S-Satisfactory or U-
Unsatisfactory. These grades become part of student's
record but do not count in the grade point average as
computed by the University of Florida. NOTE: Other
agencies or institutions might count the grade of U as a
failing grade in their grade point average computation.
To be eligible to enroll under the S-U option, a
student must 1) be in good standing-may not be on any
type of probation or warning, 2) be classified as an
undergraduate student, and 3) have approval from ap-
propriate 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 (or a designated
representative) in which the student is registered.
The deadline for electing the S-U option is the last
day of the drop/add period as published in the calendar.
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. Definition: The term "average," as used in any
University regulation concerning probation or suspen-
sion, always refers to the average on work attempted at
the University of Florida. Grades received at other insti-
tutions are not averaged with grades received at the
University of Florida for the purpose of meeting any
University average requirement. Most honorary societ-
ies take into consideration the quality of the work done
at other institutions in meeting any average require-
ments they may have.
2. How computed: Averages are determined by
computing the ratio of grade points to semester hours
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, I and X with 0.0.
Effective Fall 1990, a grade of I or X is not included
in the computation of a student's grade point average
in the term in which it is received. However, if it has not
been changed by the end of the subsequent term, it will
be assigned a grade point value of 0.0 and used in the
computation of the student's grade point average.
In computing averages, a course which has been
repeated is counted as many times as grades for it are
recorded. An exception occurs, however, when a stu-
dent earns a grade of C or higher in a course, repeats the
course, and earns a C or higher a second time. The
second grade will not be computed in the University of
Florida grade point average. If the second grade earned
is lower than C, it will be used in computing the
University of Florida grade point average. Special Note:
Grades received at other institutions will not be averaged
with grades received for course work taken at the
University of Florida. Therefore, repeated course work
involving transfer work and work taken at the University
of Florida will result in calculation of the University of
Florida grade in the UF grade point average, with credit
earned only once.
The following examples are meant to offer a prac-
tical explanation and illustration of the four possible
grade outcomes when repeating a course:

GRADES EARNED GPA/CREDIT
IN COURSE COMPUTATION
First grade Each grade
lower than C computed in GPA;
Second grade Credit earned
C or higher only once.

First grade Each grade
lower than C computed in GPA;
Second grade Credit earned
lower than C only once.
First grade Each grade
C or higher computed in GPA;
Second grade Credit earned
lower than C only once.
First grade Only first grade
C or higher computed in GPA;
Second grade Credit for first
C or higher course only.
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 admit-
ted to the University of Florida their grade point averages
begin, and their academic averages will be based upon
work taken at the University of Florida. While work
transferred from other institutions toward a degree pro-
gram 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. Hours for grades of S,
U, and H are not computed in the University of Florida
grade point average.








STUDENT ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


PROBATION, SUSPENSION,
AND EXCLUSION FOR
ACADEMIC REASONS
The University of Florida is responsible for providing
the best possible education in an economical and effi-
cient manner. In order to discharge this responsibility,
the University expects and requires reasonable aca-
demic progress from its students. Continuation of stu-
dents who have demonstrated a lack of the necessary
ability, preparation, industry, or maturity to benefit
reasonably from a program of university study is incon-
sistent with the University's responsibility as a tax-sup-
ported institution.
The University of Florida Senate has enacted regu-
lations covering probation, suspension, and exclusion.
These regulations are directed toward enforcing the
academic standards of the University. The academic
standards of the University require both the mainte-
nance of grade point averages consistent with a reason-
able chance of satisfactory completion of the University
programs and reasonable conformance to the catalog
description of the program of study in which the student
is engaged. Any college of the University may specify
additional academic standards and students are respon-
sible for observing the regulations pertaining to such
standards.

GOOD STANDING AFTER
EXCLUSION
Through extensive research the University of Florida
has developed its academic standing, probation and
suspension policies based on the possibility that a stu-
dent (even in some academic difficulty) can overcome
that difficulty and make appropriate progress toward a
degree.
Based on documented historical data, the Univer-
sity of Florida has determined that a student is in good
standing if eligible to re-enroll in the University even if
on probation.

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 ultimatelyto graduate; (2) recognize unsatisfac-
tory work at an early date; (3) be sufficiently significant
to make clear to the student, and the administration, the
shortcomings of the student's performance; (4) provide
occasion for counseling; (5) give students whose ultimate
success is in question further opportunityto demonstrate
adequate performance.
All Undergraduate Students:
Students with less than a 2.0 grade point average
overall for University of Florida work shall be placed on
scholarship probation if they have a grade point deficit
of less than 15.
Any students who are eligible to return to the
University after a suspension because of academic rea-
sons will be placed on final scholarship probation for
their 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, WF = 0 points
NOTE: Grades of I,X are not computed into a student's
GPA as 0.0 points until the end of the subsequent term.
Multiply grade value times the credit hours to get grade
points. Total grade points. Divide total grade points by
total hours attempted.
Sample:
Grade Grade
Course Grade Value Hrs. Points
AML 2020 B+ 3.5 x 3 = 10.5
PSY 2013 S* NA x NA = NA
SPN 1110 C 2.0 x 5 = 10.0
PSC 1420 D 1.0 x 3 = 3.0
11 23.5
23.5 divided by 11 = 2.14 grade point average.
*Satisfactory-Unsatisfactory (S-U) option courses do not
figure into hours carried 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, if 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. Except for
failing grades, being replaced by D or D+, only grades
better than C will lower a deficit. Every credit of C+
eamed removes.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:
Students' scholarship probations shall be continued
as long as they have a grade point deficit of less than 15.

REMOVAL OF PROBATION
All Undergraduate Students:
Scholarship probation will be removed when a
student's grade point deficit has been reduced to zero.
Removal of College Probation:
Students will be removed from college probation
when it is deemed by their college that the students are
making satisfactory academic progress.

SUSPENSION
The purpose of suspension from the University for
academic reasons is to remove from the University
community anystudents who would not ultimately meet
requirements for graduation if they continue at their
current level of progress.
The conditions of academic suspensions are in-
tended to (1) identify any students whose performance
indicates that they will not fulfill the requirements for
graduation; (2) encourage a student to leave the Univer-
sity as soon as a high probability of failure is evident.
All Undergraduate Students:
Students with a grade point deficit of 15 or more
in their University of Florida work shall be suspended
from the University for one semester.
Students reenrolling after a one-semester suspen-
sion will be on final scholarship probation. If the grade
point deficit is still 15 or more at the end of the term the
students reenroll, they will be suspended without the


possibility of reregistering except by committee action.
Students suspended for one semester will not be sched-
uled to register for a future semester unless they file an
application for readmission by the published deadline.

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
takingwork in residence atanother institution orthrough
extension or correspondence courses.
However, a student who was suspended for aca-
demic reasons and who has notyet earned the Associate
of Arts certificate who subsequently graduates from an
accredited Florida community college may appeal to the
University Committee on Student Petitions for reinstate-
ment. The Petitions Committee may then, upon the
recommendation of the college in which the student
wishes to enter, admit the student on academic proba-
tion to that college or school. Credits earned by such
students while under suspension from the University of
Florida may be transferred in accordance with other
rules and regulations of the University of Florida.

COLLEGE LEVEL ACADEMIC
SKILLS TEST
The state of Florida has developed a test of college-
level communication and computation skills. The test is
called the College Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST).
The CLAST is designed to test the communication
and computation skills that are judged by state university
and community college faculty to be generally associ-
ated with successful performance and progression through
the baccalaureate level. The test is required by Florida
statutes and rules of the State Board of Education.
The CLAST is administered three times a year to
university students as well as to community college
students who are completing either Associate of Arts
degree programs or Associate of Science degree pro-
grams and are seeking admission to upper division
programs in state universities in Florida. Students who
do notsatisfactorily complete thetestwill notbeawarded
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 Turlington Hall, University of Florida, Gainesville,
Florida, 32611-2036, phone (904) 392-1715, can tell
you how and when to apply to take the CLAST.
The Academic Advisement Center located at 358
Little Hall, University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida,
32611-2049, phone (904) 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.

COMMUNICATION AND
COMPUTATION
REQUIREMENT
Beginning with the 1983 Spring term all students
who enter college for the first time must complete, with
grades of C or higher, 12 credits in designated courses
that involve substantial writing (a total of 24,000 words).
This requirement can be met by selecting at least 12
credits from amongthose English, humanities, and social
sciences general education courses which are listed
under Authorized Courses for General Education. Col-
lege Level Examination Program (CLEP) credit cannot be







STUDENT ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


used to satisfy the writing requirement. In addition, each
student must satisfactorily complete, with grades of C or
higher, 6 credits of coursework that involve numerical
analyses, 3 credits of which must be in a course that goes
under the general title of mathematics, at the level of
college algebra or above. The other 3 credits may be in
mathematics, statistics, appropriate courses in computer
information sciences. This requirement can be met by
completing the General Education Requirement in
mathematical sciences, or PHI 2100.
The Communication-Computation coursework must
be satisfactorily completed prior to earning 60 credits.
The courses acceptable for the computation require-
ment are identical to those authorized for the General
Education Mathematical Sciences Requirement (see the
Lower Division Requirements section of this catalog).
Any student satisfying College-Level Examination Pro-
gram (CLEP) requirements in mathematics for post-
admissions exemptions of coursework shall be allowed
to exempt three (3) credits of mathematics required by
this rule.

EXCLUSION
Freshman and Sophomore Students:
Students classified UF who have attempted 80
semester hours (this includes all work accepted by
transfer and all work attempted at the University of
Florida including repeat coursework) shall be ineligible
for further registration at the University unless they apply
for a change of classification and are formally admitted
to a degree program. In addition, students who do not
satisfactorily complete the CLAST or fulfill the Commu-
nication-Computation Requirements by the time they
have completed 60 semester hours are not eligible to be
admitted to the upper division.
All Undergraduate Students:
Students may be excluded from a program of study
bythe college responsible for the program if the students
fail to maintain normal academic progress. Such exclu-
sion does not prohibit students from enrolling in other
programs or colleges if they meet the requirements.
Graduate Students:
Graduate students may be denied further registra-
tion in the University or in their graduate major when
thestudents' progresstoward completion of their planned
graduate program becomes unsatisfactory. Unsatisfac-
tory progress has been defined by the Graduate Council
to include failureto maintain a cumulative grade average
of B in all work attempted in The Graduate School.

DROPPING COURSES
No student will be allowed to drop a course after
the deadline date for each semester as published in the
University Calendar. Students seeking an exception to
this policy must follow the appropriate petition process.

WITHDRAWALS
All Undergraduate Students:
It is the responsibility of each student to make every
effortto complete the full semester atthe University. Any
student who withdraws after the deadline date pub-
lished in the University Calendar, shall be assigned
grades of WF (withdrew failing) in all courses and will be
subject to the suspension and exclusion regulations.
Students on scholarship probation who withdraw
from the University prior to the final date published in
the calendar will be continued on scholarship probation
for the next semester.
Students on the University Committee on Student
Petitions probation must meet the terms of probation
specified by the committee.
Students who need to withdraw from all courses for


a given term for medical reasons should contact the
Office for Student Services, Division of Student Affairs,
for procedural information.

ATTENDANCE, ABSENCES, OR
UNSATISFACTORY WORK
Under University policy, students are not autho-
rized to attend class unless they are on the class roll or
have been approved to audit and have paid the audit
fees.
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.
Students who have not attended at least one of the
first two class meetings of a course or laboratory in which
they are registered and have not contacted the depart-
.mentwhich offers the course to indicate intentto remain
in the course may be dropped by the chair of the
department which offers the course if the chair deems
this action necessary to provide space for other students
who wish to enroll in 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
chair.
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 students shall absent
themselves from the University for more than 12 scho-
lastic days per semester in order to participate in athletic
or in extracurricular activities. (A scholastic day is any day
on which regular classwork is scheduled.)
The 12-day rule applies to individual members of
the group rather than to the group as a whole. Conse-
quently, 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.
Students who have been warned for absences or
unsatisfactory work in any class should not incur addi-
tional absences in that course, even though they have
not been absent from the University for 12 scholastic
days. It is the responsibility of students to see that their
classwork and attendance are satisfactory.

ILLNESS POLICY
Students who are absent from classes or examina-
tions because of illness should contact their professors
on a timely basis to discuss their individual situations.
The student should contact the college in which he or
she is enrolled by the published calendar deadline if a
class needs to be dropped because of medical reasons.
Afterthe college petition deadline, students may petition
the University Senate Committee on Student Petitions
to drop a course for medical reasons. Students needing
to withdraw from all courses for a given term for medical
reasons should contact the Office for Student Services,
Division of Student Affairs, for procedural information.

DEAD WEEK CLASS
EXAMINATION AND
ASSIGNMENT POLICY

No final or comprehensive examinations, projects,
or term papers are to be scheduled or assigned during
the final week of class. Written papers and/or oral
presentations and periodic testing announced in the


course syllabus distributed at the beginning of the term
may be collected or presented provided they do not
serve as a final examination. Weekly or daily tests, if
scheduled in the syllabus are permitted, third or fourth
hourly tests are not. Take-home examinations assigned
as final examinations can be due no earlier than the
regularly scheduled final examination. Laboratory sec-
tions are exempt from this policy.

DISCRETIONARY REVIEW
DAYS
Discretionary Review days refer to the last two days
of classes in the fall and spring semesters. Instructors
may, at their discretion, conduct a final examination
review during this time. There are no Discretionary
Review days during the summer terms because final
examinations are given during regular class periods.

RELIGIOUS HOLIDAYS:
BOARD OF REGENTS
POLICY STATEMENT
University policy regarding observance of religious
holidays follows:
1. Studentsshall, upon notifyingtheir instructor, be
excused from class to observe a religious holy day of
their faith.
2. While students will be held responsible for
material covered in their 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 shall 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 University of Florida urges faculty and administrators
not to schedule exams or major events on evenings or
days that will be observed as holy days by a significant
number of students. Students who ask to be excused
from class for religious reasons will not be required to
provide second-party certification.

POSTBACCALAUREATE
STUDENTS
The probation, suspension, and exclusion regula-
tions that apply to undergraduate students also apply to
postbaccalaureate students.







STUDENT ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


CLASSIFICATION OF
STUDENTS
Students will be classified by the Office of the
University Registrar each semester as follows:
Classification Explanation
0 Special transientstudents, qualified high
school students, and 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 credits will
be classified as 1.
2 Astudentwho has eamed 30 credits or
more, but less than 60, will be classified
as 2.
3 A student who has earned 60 credits or
more, butlessthan 90, will beclassified
as3.
4 A student who has earned 90 credits or
more will be classified as 4.
5 A student who is a candidate for a
degree in a program which normally
requires 10 semesters and has earned
120 credits or morewill be classified as
5.
6 Postbaccalaureate students: Degree-
holding students who have been ad-
mitted to postbaccalaureate status will
be classified as 6.
7 A graduate student who is seeking a
first 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 credits while seeking a graduate
degree (but has not been admitted to
doctoral candidacy), will be classified
as8.
9 A graduate student who has been ad-
mitted to doctoral candidacy will be
classified as 9.


PETITIONS AND APPEALS
When a student academic regulation appears to
result in undue hardship, students may petition for
waiver of the regulation.
Petitions to drop or add (after the official drop/add
period and prior to the date for assigning a WF grade)
should be presented to the school or college in which
the student is enrolled. After that date all drop/add
petitions must be presented to the University Senate
Committee on Student Petitions. Exceptionstothe mini-
mum-maximum load regulation are presented to the
school or college for a decision. Petitions approved by
the school or college must be reported to the Office of
the University Registrar before the action becomes of-
ficial.
All other petitions should be presented to the Office
of the University Registrar which will refer them to the
University Senate Committee on Student Petitions.
The student seeking waiver of a regulation through
petition must remember that no committee on petitions
can direct an instructor to change a student's grade, nor
can the Senate Committee require any college or school
to grant a degree by waiving any of these regulations.

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

MAINTENANCE OF STUDENT
RECORDS
The Office of the University Registrar maintains
students' academic records. A progress report is sent to
students at the end of the term indicating grades, cumu-
lative hours, and grade points. Probationary status and
degrees awarded, if any, are also indicated.


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.
Information which can be released to the public on
any student is name, class, college, and major; dates of
attendance; degrees) earned; awards received; local
and permanent address, and telephone number.
The above-cited information will not be publicly
released if a student completes and returns a "Restriction
of Directory Information" form, available through the
Office of the University Registrar.
In general, present or former students have the right
to personally review their own educational records for
information and to determine the accuracy of these
records. Parents of dependent students, as defined by
the Internal Revenue Service, have these same rights. A
photo I.D. or other equivalent documentation or per-
sonal recognition by custodian of record will be required
before access is granted.

AUDITING COURSES
Auditing may be approved on a space-available
basis. In addition to the payment of course fees, the
approvals of the instructor and dean are required. Florida
residents who are sixty years of age or older may apply
for a waiver of payment of auditor's course fees. Proce-
dures for auditing courses are available from the Office
of the University Registrar.

FIVE YEAR COURSE
DELETION RULE
Courses not taught for five years, or less if desired,
are to be deleted from the University Record Series
(University Course Catalog) in conformance with State
of Florida Department of Education rule 6A-10.0331.
Courses may be continued if reasonable cause for the
course not to have been offered and an expectation that
itwill be offered is justified to and approved by the Office
of Academic Affairs.











Time-Shortened Degree

Opportunities

The University of Florida provides numerous op-
portunities by which students may accelerate their aca-
demic careers and reduce the overall length of time
spent in completing degree requirements. These oppor-
tunities are explained below:
1. Early Admission:
The Early Admission program allows superior stu-
dents to be admitted to the University following
completion of the junior year in high school. Appli-
cations are encouraged and will be considered on
an individual basis by the Admissions Committee.
For funding purposes, early admission students
from Florida high schools may be considered as
dual credit enrollment students.
For additional information, refer to the Admissions
section of the catalog.
2. Dual Credit Enrollment:
Dual Enrollment refers to a student taking on-
campus courses simultaneously at both the Univer-
sity of Florida and another institution. If the parent
institution is a Florida high school, then the student
may qualify for tuition-exempt high school/college
dual credit enrollment and may receive textbooks
or other necessary course materials on a lend-
return basis. There must be an articulation agree-
ment between the home county school board and
the University of Florida. This agreement should
describe recording of grades and disposition of
instructional materials.
Qualified high school students will be enrolled as
nondegree students and credits earned prior to
high school graduation may subsequently be ac-
cepted for advanced standing and degree-credit
when the student is admitted to the University.
For more information, high school students may
refer to Student Academic Regulations (especially
the sections on Dual Enrollment, Nondegree Reg-
istration, and Classification of Students).
3. Increased Course Load:
Capable students who register for more than the
normal 15 hours per semester may complete the
traditional four-year span in a shorter period of
time.
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 to-
ward a degree awarded by the University of Florida.
Credit received from one examination program
may not be duplicated by another. A maximum of
30 semester hours may be earned from one or more
of the following programs.
International Baccalaureate Program: The Univer-
sity awards credit for International Baccalaureate higher
level subjects. Six semester hours of appropriate credit
will be granted for each higher level exam, upon the
University's receipt of official results showing scores of
5, 6, or 7.
A student who receives the I.B. diploma and has
three higher level examination results of 5, 6, or 7 will
be granted 30 semester hours of credit.
Advanced Placement Program: This credit by ex-
amination opportunity is sponsored by the College En-
trance Examination Board. Under this program, a stu-
dent entering the University offers a nationally graded
examination as evidence of completion of a college level
course taken in high school. If the results of the exami-
nation meet the minimum requirements listed opposite,
the student may receive University credit for courses
covering similar material. The course numbers in paren-
theses indicate approximate University of Florida course
equivalencies. Advanced Placement credit will appear
on the student's permanent record.

TIME SHORTENED DEGREE OPPORTUNITIES


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 general
education requirements. Their scores on the CLEP gen-
eral 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 periodically available on the
campus and is administered by the Office of Instruc-
tional Resources.
In accordance with the articulation agreement
(agreement between public community colleges and
public state universities on the acceptance of credit by
transfer), the University of Florida awards credit for CLEP
examinations based on the following scaled scores:

*Students should seriously consider their decision
about taking the CLEP general examination in English.
Experience as 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 in-
cludes an essay examination so that their scores will be
at least partially based on a writing sample.


Additional credit may be awarded for satisfactory
scores on certain CLEP subject area examinations. If
English Subject Examinations (Freshman English or En-
glish Composition) are taken, it is mandatory that the
essay option be taken if credit is to be received for
English. A minimum score ensures that the essay portion
of the exam is eligible for review by UF staff evaluators.
This score in itself does not guarantee that credit will be
received for English. A favorable review must be re-
ceived on the essay portion of the exam. A minimum
score of 51 is required for College Composition and a
minimum score of 51 is required for Freshman English.
The maximum credit allowed for English credit, if the
minimum score is achieved and the essay is acceptable,
is 6 semester hours.
DepartmentExaminations: Departments may, attheir
option, permit a student to receive credit through the
challenge of departmental course examinations. For
specific information, contact the relevant department
A maximum of 30 semester hours may be granted
combining the IB, AP, and CLEP programs.










Lower Division


Administered by the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences
358 Little Hall

General Statement
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is the
gateway college for entering freshmen and other stu-
dents with fewer than 64 credits, providing for their
academic advisement and their general education. It
also provides advanced education leading toward de-
rees in a variety of disciplinary and cross-disciplinary
fields in arts and sciences.

GENERAL INFORMATION FOR
FRESHMEN AND
SOPHOMORES
Entering freshmen are classified UF. They retain this
classification up to but not beyond 80 attempted credits.
Students should apply for admission to the college of
their major at an appropriate point, usually when they
have earned 64 credits but earlier in the case of some
colleges. Each college specifies admissions requirements
in its section of the catalog.

Academic Advisement
Freshmen entering each Summer B and Fall class
are registered during Advance Registration, "Preview",
held in the preceding summer months. Students and
their parents have an opportunity to attend one of
approximately 30 two-day programs. Notices concern-
ing this orientation are mailed in the late spring to those
students who have been admitted by the University
Admissions Office. At these summer registration pro-
grams, 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 Summer
B or Fall.
Those students who cannot attend a summer reg-
istration program may confer with academic advisers as
a part of the registration period held in the week prior
to the beginning of classes. Students entering college in
the spring and summer semesters also will have access
to advisement conferences as part of the registration
period prior to classes.
In the latter part of each semester students register
for their nextterm. Again academic advisers are available
to discuss course selection. It is expected that students
shall accept responsibility for fulfilling curricula require-
ments as stated in the catalog, and students who are
making successful progress are not required to see an
adviser when registering. Students who are changing
majors or who are not maintaining a "C" average often
are required to talk to an adviser about course selection.
In the first few days of each semester (see deadlines
in the front of this catalog) students should review their
course selection and add or drop courses as needed. If
during the semester students feel they must drop a
course because of illness or other emergency, they will
find academic advisers available for discussion of the
problem. Advisers are also available during regular busi-
ness hours in the Academic Advisement Center, 358
Little Hall, to help students define any other academic
problems and find corrective measures.


College Level Academic Skills
Test
All students who attain junior standing (60 semester
hours) after the end of the Fall 1982 term are required
to take the College Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST).
A student may take the CLAST at anytime after 18 hours.
Starting with the 1984 Fall Semester, the awarding of AA
certificates and registration after earning 60 hours are
contingent upon students' making passing scores on the
tests.


Required Courses in
Communication and
Computation Skills
(Gordon Rule)
Students who entered college Spring 1983 or later
must complete 12 hours in designated courses that
involve substantial writing with a grade of C or higher.
This requirement can be met by selecting at least 12
hours from among those designated English, Humani-
ties, and Social Sciences General Education courses
which are listed in the current Schedule of Courses. CLEP
credit may not be used to satisfy the writing requirement.
In addition, each student must complete, with grades of
C or higher, six hours of courses that involve computa-
tional skills. Three of these hours must be in a mathe-
matics course with the remaining three in acceptable
courses in mathematics, statistics, computer science, or
PHI 2100. The courses acceptable for the requirement
are identical to those authorized for the General Edu-
cation Mathematical Sciences Requirement. Any stu-
dentsatisfyingCollege-Level Examination Program (CLEP)
requirements in mathematics for post-admission ex-
emptions of coursework shall be allowed to exempt
three (3) hours of mathematics required by this rule.
This requirement is sometimes called the Cordon
Rule, a reference to its history in the Florida State
Legislature.

GENERAL EDUCATION
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.
General Education at the University of Florida has
been planned to prepare students:
1. To think clearly and independently in fields
outside their fields of specialty.
2. To express ideas effectively in speech and writ-
ing.
3. To develop a basic understanding of math-
ematics 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 social consequences of re-
search as exemplified by biological and physi-
cal sciences.
The objective is to encourage all-around develop-
ment of students as individuals and as members of
society so they may bring balance and perception to
every field of their activity.

General Education Requirement
The University-wide General Education Require-
ment includes basic cultural skills (English and math-
ematics), social and behavioral sciences, natural sci-
ences, and the humanities. All students will take a


minimum of 39 semester hours of credit from courses
providing intellectual balance and breadth.
In planningeach semester's program, studentsshould
balance general and professional courses, science and
nonscience courses. All students should take care to
make progress in fulfilling their General Education Re-
quirement even though they may be sampling courses
in specific majors or enrolling in required preprofessional
courses. Some students complete the greater part of their
General Education in the first two years while also taking
the preprofessional courses specified for their majors.
However, for some programs of study it may be conve-
nient to spread these courses over the entire 4 years of
study.
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. However, courses at all levels
(1000-4000) may be used to satisfy General Education.
Where prerequisites are stated, they must be met.
Students may consult college and departmental advisers
as to whether courses used to satisfy General Education
may also be used to satisfy college distribution and major
preprofessional requirements.

AUTHORIZED COURSES FOR
GENERAL EDUCATION

In selecting courses, students should keep in
mind that the General Education part of their university
program should serve to increase their fund of knowl-
edge outside the major and should broaden their intel-
lectual horizons. Again, freshmen are encouraged to
take entry level courses before attempting more ad-
vanced work. Courses from the following departments
may be used to satisfy General Education requirements.
MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES
Minimum Credits Required .............6
Six (6) semester hours in Mathematical Sciences, at
least 3 hours of which shall be in mathematics and the
balance of which shall be taken in either mathematics,
statistics, computer and information sciences, or PHI
2100. The following courses may not be used to satisfy
the Mathematical Sciences Requirements: MAE 3810,
MAE 3811, COC 3400 and CRM 4121.
The Computation Skills "Gordon Rule" Require-
ment is identical to the General Education Mathematical
Sciences Requirement.
ENGLISH
Minimum Credits Required .............6
Students may take any literature or composition course
with prefixes:

The following courses may not be taken for General
Education credit in English: LIS 2001, LIS 2100, LIN
2670, and RED 1343. (CLEP may be used for General
Education but will not satisfy the Communication "Gor-
don Rule" Requirement. Advanced Placement(AP) may
be used to satisfy both General Education and The
Communication Requirements.)
SOCIAL AND BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES
Minimum Credits Required .............9
The requirements in the Behavioral and Social
Sciences enable the student to become acquainted with
the approach of the social sciences disciplines to the
study of human beings and their societies, and to be-

GENERAL ACADEMIC
REGULATIONS

Normal Loads: The normal course load is 12-15 credit
hours. First semester freshmen may wish to consider a
load of 12 hours. Loads above 17 hours must be ap-
proved by the Associate Dean for Student Affairs, 358
Little Hall.
Adding/Dropping/Withdrawing: Courses may be
dropped or added during the drop/add period without
penalty. After the drop/add period, a course may be
dropped up to the date established in the University
Calendar. A "W" will appear on the transcript.
All drops after the drop/add period are subject to
the following restrictions:
1. No more than two (2) drops will be permitted
to students while classified 1 UF and 2UF.
2. Final approval to drop a course must be ob-
tained from the Academic Advisement Center,
358 Little Hall.
3. After the deadline students may petition to
drop a course provided they can document
sufficient reasons to drop, usually hardship or
medical condition occurring afterthe deadline.
Failure to attend a class will not be accepted as
constituting a drop; the only procedure for dropping
a class is the proper processing of a schedule change
form which the student must initiate.
Withdrawing from the University: Students
dropping their entire course load must contact
the Office of Student Services, as dropping the
entire load constitutes withdrawal from the Uni-
versity and must be handled by withdrawal
procedures established by the Registrar. It is sub-
ject to the published catalog deadlines.
Student Petitions: A student who feels that
University regulations cause a particular hardship
or injustice may petition for waiver of the regu-
lation. Information on procedures for submitting
such petitions is available in S215 Criser Hall.
Correspondence/Extension Work: A student will not
be permitted to register for and work on correspondence
courses while enrolled at the University unless special
permission is obtained from 358 Little Hall. In order for
special permission to be granted, the student must be in
good academic standing and may not apply more than
6 semester hours toward a University degree.
Class Attendance: The University recognizes the
right of the individual professor to make atten-
dance mandatory where appropriate. After due
warning professors may suspend students with
failing grades from individual courses for exces-
sive absences.








LOWER DIVISION REQUIREMENTS


In some "high demand" courses a student may be
dropped by the instructor if he/she misses the first two
hours of class.
CLEP and Advanced Placement: Students who obtain
credit via CLEP or Advanced Placement must do so
before starting college, or, at the latest, prior to the end
of their first term at the University. Some credit by
examination may not serve to accelerate students' pro-
grams because the specific course requirements of their
majors are not satisfied by general subject matter credit.
Dean's List: At the end of the fall and spring terms, the
Dean's List regularly recognizes outstanding academic
achievement. Inclusion on the list is awardedto students
who earn a grade point average of 3.5 on a minimum
of 15 hours, exclusive of hours taken under the S-U
option.

INFORMATION FOR
PREPROFESSIONAL STUDENTS
PreLaw Programs
While any undergraduate specialization will pre-
pare a student for law school, the beginning law student
must possess the fundamental skills necessary for effec-
tive oral and written communication. The student who
lacks writing skills should study advanced English com-
position. Any course that tests one's ability to organize
a body of data and reason from it will be beneficial. A
course in logic would be helpful. Also suggested are
courses in constitutional law, English and American
history, economics, political processes, and sociology. A
course in basic accounting principles is recommended.
PreLaw students shouldconsultthe current PRELAW
HANDBOOK available from the Law School Admission
Council and the Association of American law Schools
which is available in most bookstores. A PreLaw guide
is also available in the Preprofessional Office in 358 Little
Hall.
Freshmen and transfer students planning careers in
law should so indicate on their registration student data
sheets each term. In addition to serving as a central
source of information on all matters relating to prelaw
advisement, the Office of Preprofessional Education
located in 358 Little Hall acts as a clearinghouse for
information and LSAT/LSDAS materials relating to prelaw
preparation and application procedures. The Office
serves as a central office for collecting and forwarding
letters of evaluation for applicants to law schools. Files
for letters of evaluation should be set up in the office
early in the year in which applications to law school will
be sent (usually the spring term of the junior year).
Premedical, Predental, and
Preoptometry Programs
The University of Florida allows a premedical,
predental, or preoptometry student to major in any
program offered by any department or college within the
University.
Students planning careers in medicine, dentistry,
and optometry should so indicate on their registration
student data sheets each term. In order to inform them-
selves fully of requirements, procedures, and other
factors relating to preprofession preparation, students
should obtain a current copy of the PREPROFESSIONAL
HANDBOOK available through the Office of
Preprofessional Education, 358 Little Hall.
In addition to serving as a central source of infor-
mation on all matters pertaining to the preprofessional
curricula, the Office of Preprofessional Education acts as
a clearinghouse for information and application forms
relating to medical, dental, and optometry school re-
quirementsand admission procedures. The Office serves
as a central office for collecting and forwarding letters of
evaluation and certification to the professional schools
selected by the applicants.
The preprofessional student must satisfy the follow-
ing core requirements (usually prior to application to
professional schools):


Required Core Courses:
1. A complete general chemistry sequence termi-
natingwith CHM 2046-2046L, or CHM 2051 C.
2. A complete organic chemistry sequence termi-
nating with CHM 3211 -CHM 3211L, or CHM
3216 and CHM 3216L.
3. At least 8 semester credits in biology (usually
BSC 2010-BSC2010L, and BSC 2011-2011 L).
4. Complete physicssequence terminating with
PHY 3054 and PHY 3056L or PHY 3042).
5. One year of college mathematics including at
least one term of analytic geometry and calcu-
lus (MAC 3311).
6. One year of college-level English. CLEP and AP
are not acceptable to some medical schools.
These courses will also meet the basic requirements for
schools of chiropractic, osteopathic, and podiatric
medicine.
Students should consult the catalogs of the schools
to which they intend to apply for any additional require-
ments or suggested courses. A list of suggested elective
courses for preprofessional students is available in the
Office of Preprofessional Education. The list includes
courses in biochemistry, chemistry, microbiology, and
zoology which should be taken in addition to the re-
quired courses.
Besides meeting the preprofessional course re-
quirements, students are urged to gain some experience
in the health care delivery environment of their career
choice. Such experience may be obtained by participa-
tion in the programs of the National Preprofessional
Honor Society (Alpha Epsilon Delta), the Minority
Preprofessional Association (MPA), and the
Preprofessional Service Organization (PSO) at the Uni-
versity of Florida. More details about these programs and
applications are available atthe Office of Preprofessional
Education.
Students in upper-division colleges must be certain
that they are also making satisfactory progress towards
a recognized major in the college.
CLEP Credit: It is generally agreed that receipt of
CLEPcredit does not imply the equivalent of educational
experience received in any university-level course. You
should plan on taking courses in every area in which you
have been granted CLEP credit, especially in English.
Unless you are advised otherwise, you should begin with
introductory level courses or courses at the 2000 level
for which you are certain that you possess the prereq-
uisites.

OPTIMUM TIMETABLE FOR PREPROFESSIONAL
STUDENTS
1st Year: Chemistry, Calculus, and General
Education requirements.
2nd Year: Core Biology, Organic Chemistry, and
General Education requirements.
3rd Year: Physics, requirements for your major,
and additional Biology or Chemistry
courses.
January: Contact Office of
Preprofessional Education to begin
application procedures.
February: Begin studying for MCAT/
DAT, and begin collecting letters of
evaluation with the Office of
Preprofessional Education.
April: Take MCAT/DAT.

additional preprofesonanal classes.
Fall and Spring: Interview with
professional schools. Maintain good
GPA and course loads.
COURSE LOADS: First term at the University, take 12-
14 hours of academic courses including two science or
mathematics courses. Nonscience courses should be
solid, academic courses. Lighter loads or easy coursesdo
not enhance your record. Honors courses are recom-
mended for superior students willing to do extra work.


After your first term, maintain approximately a 15-hour
load including two-or-three science/math courses. No
more than two laboratory courses are recommended in
any one term.

HONORS PROGRAM
This is an invitational program for students who
have shown potential for superior academic perfor-
mance. Invitations are sent after admission to the Uni-
versity to all students who have scored 1280 or above
on the Scholastic Aptitude Test, a 29 composite on the
American College Test, or a 30 composite on the En-
hanced American College Test. Further, they must have
an academic high school grade point average of not less
than 3.6 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 at least one honors course each semester
in the first two years and maintain an overall grade point
average of 3.0. Honors requirements are not in addition
to General Education Requirements, but may be used
in satisfaction 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 skills through extensive reading, writing of research
papers, and oral presentations in class.
Students who fulfill the requirements of the Honors
Program with a 3.0 overall average, satisfy the General
Education Requirements, and have 64 semester hours
of credit, will receive the Associate of Arts certificate 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
department honors coordinator should be contacted
for admission into the upper-division honors program.
The upper-division honors programs in the College
of Liberal Arts and Sciences lead to the baccalaureate
degree with either honors, high honors, or highest
honors. For graduation with honors, a student must
attain a 3.5 overall upper-division average. For gradu-
ation with high honors or highest honors, the student
must fulfill an overall 3.5 upper-division average and, in
addition, submit a thesis, a research project, or other
creative work. Upon evaluation by the department or
other responsible group, the student will be recom-
mended for high or highest honors.

OFFICE OF MINORITY AFFAIRS

Sciences)
The Office of Minority Affairs coordinates and di-
rects supportive services for all minority students, in-
cluding participants in the federally-funded Special Ser-
vices Program, and all other specially-admitted students

sion, communication-computation requirements, Col-
lege Level Academic Skills Test, etc.). Tutors are pro-
vided in math and English, and referrals are made and
tutoring arranged in other areas through the Broward

for which he or she is registered.
Seniors must file formal application for a degree in
the Office of the University Registrar early in the semes-
ter in which they expect to graduate. The official calen-
dar shows the latest date when this can be done.
NORMAL LOADS: The normal course load in the
Fisher School is 15 credit hours per semester. A student
may be permitted 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 minimum registration.
It is the student's responsibility to verify the minimum
registration necessary for these benefits.
RESIDENCE: The last 30 semester hours to be ap-
plied 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.Ac.
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 supporting fields)
betaken outside the University of Florida. No exceptions
to this policy are permitted. Students atthe 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-UNSATISFACTORYGRADEOPTION:
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 require-
ments. Courses taken to satisfy communication require-
ments for the M.Acc. 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 unsatisfactory
progress. If a student's upper division accounting GPA
falls below 2.0, they have two semesters of enrollment
at the University of Florida to achieve a 2.0 minimum
or they will be considered to be making unsatisfactory
progress.
Additionally, if a student's cumulative CPA falls
below 2.0, they have one semester of enrollment at the
University of Florida to achieve a 2.0 minimum or they
will be denied further registration.
Students who are not following the accounting
curriculum are also considered to be making unsatisfac-
tory progress. Accordingly, a student who does not
attempt an upper division accounting course in two
semesters of enrollment at the University of Florida may
also be barred from the program.
DROP POLICY: Courses may be dropped duringthe
drop/add period without penalty. After the drop/add
period, a course may be dropped up to the date estab-
lished as the Fisher 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 University Registrar as this
constitutes withdrawal from the University. With-
drawal in any term (fall, spring, or any summer
term) is counted as one drop for the purpose of
applying the drop policies. The Fisher School will
exclude students from the accounting program if
the studentwithdrawsfrom 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 priority for
enrolling in that course during the next academic
term.

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
Extension Education, Agricultural Engineering, Agricul-
tural Operations Management, Agronomy, Animal Sci-
ence, DairyScience, Entomology and Nematology, Food
and Resource Economics, Food Science and Human
Nutrition, Fruit Crops, Microbiology and Cell Science,

ence, Soil Science, and Vegetable Crops. Degree pro-
grams are also available through the College of Agricul-
ture in the Botany and Statistics departments adminis-
tered by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The
School of Forest Resources and Conservation is a spe-
cialized faculty within the College of Agriculture.

REQUIREMENTS FOR
ADMISSION

The University of Florida and the College of Agri-
culture encourage applications from qualified students
of both sexes from all cultural, racial, religious, and
ethnic groups. Listed below are the specific require-
ments for admission to this College. In the event enroll-
ment 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 UF classification who has finalized
his or her decision to study in the College of Agriculture
may apply for admission to the College. Applications
from freshmen and sophomores are encouraged.
Upper Division Students
UF Students. To be eligible for admission to the
College of Agriculture, upper division students must
have demonstrated byselectionof 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 consider-
ation by the College of Agriculture:
(1) Complete the General Education Requirements
of the University of Florida as described in the Lower
Division Requirements section of this catalog; or, com-
plete an Associate of Arts certificate.
(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 pub-
lished by the University of Florida to develop a
program of study that will satisfy the above require-
ments. In general, they should:
1. Complete the two-year college parallel
program at their community college.
2. Satisfythe General Education Requirements
established for their community college.
3. Complete a program of general chemistry
through qualitative analysis and mathemat-
ics through college algebra and
trigonometry.
4. Complete basiccourses in biologyor botany
and zoology.


5. Complete a course in general physics.
6. Choose elective courses in fulfilling the
required total hours in the college-parallel
program from the areas of speech, English,
and the basic sciences.
7. Avoid specialized professional courses.
Preprofessional courses can be taken to
much better advantage after the student
has acquired the appropriate background
in general education and basic science
courses.
Special Postbaccalaureate Students
A student who has received a baccalaureate degree
may be admitted under certain circumstances as a
special postbaccalaureate student (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 stu-
dents are the same as for transfer students. In addition,
postbaccalaureate students must comply with College
and University rules and regulations and meet all dead-
lines as printed in the catalog for undergraduate stu-
dents.

GENERAL REGULATIONS

STUDENT RESPONSIBILITY: The student must as-
sume full responsibility for registering for the proper
courses and for fulfilling 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 Office of the
University Registrar. Seniors must file a formal applica-
tion for a degree in the Office of the University 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 responsibility
to verify the minimum course load for these benefits.
RESIDENCE: The last 30 semester hours to be ap-
plied toward the degree must be completed in residence
in the College of Agriculture. In special cases this require-
ment 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 resi-
dence work required for the baccalaureate degree but
such work must have prior approval by the major
department 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 at-
tempted in residence.
SATISFACTORY-UNSATISFACTORYCRADEOPTION:
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 15
points below a 2.0 average will be suspended for one
term and then may return for a term grade but must


lower their deficit below 15 points or face final suspen-
sion.
DROPPOLICY: Courses may be dropped duringthe
drop/add period without penalty. Thereafter, courses
may be dropped only by College of Agriculture petition
until a deadline for college petitions is reached. Drops
requiring College of Agriculture petitions are subject to
the following rules:
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
dropswill be processed accordingto the student's
classification. Records of free drops will be
maintained in the Dean's office; therefore all
drops must be processed through that office.
2. After the College deadline, students may peti-
tion the University Committee on Student Peti-
tions to drop a course provided they can docu-
ment sufficient reasons to drop.
3. Students dropping their full course load must
contact the Office of the University Registrar, as
this constitutes withdrawal from the University.
WITHDRAWAL POLICY: If a College of Agriculture
student withdraws from the University 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 Agriculture.

AGRICULTURE: LOWER
DIVISION

Students planning to enter the College of Agricul-
ture 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

ENGINEERING

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN ENGINEERING
(Agricultural Engineering)
The Agricultural Engineering curriculum is offered
cooperatively by the College of Agriculture and the
College of Engineering. Students in this major receive
basic training in en ineering and agriculture so that they
are prepared to solve the specialized and unique engi-
neering problems of agricultural production and pro-
cessing systems and the management and conservation
of agricultural land and water resources. Since engineer-
ing problems in agriculture relate to biological produc-
tion and processing of biological products, training in
agricultural and biological courses is obtained. Students
desiring careers in Agricultural Engineering will register
in the College of Engineering. See College of Engineering
for curriculum.

AGRICULTURAL AND

The Agricultural and Extension Education curricu-
lum prepares students for a wide variety of careers in
vocational agriculture, the Cooperative Extension Ser-
vice, and agricultural communications. Three curricula
are offered in the department: teaching, extension, and
agricultural communications. All require a common core
of courses including technical agriculture and profes-
sional education. In addition, three co-majors are of-
fered with other departments and an extension minor
is provided. Departmental advisers will advise students
in the selection of electives and requirements to meet
career goals.
CURRICULUM I: TEACHING OPTION

COLLEGES


ANIMAL SCIENCE

The Animal Science curriculum is designed to give
students a foundation in the basic sciences and funda-
mental training in the various phases of the beef cattle,
swine, horse, sheep and meat industries. In addition, it
provides a background for graduate study and for entry
into the College of Veterinary medicine. The curriculum
consists of core requirements and electives. Through
proper selection of electives, students can direct their
programs toward their career interests, such asproduc-
tion, agribusiness, advanced degrees, and preprofessional
programs. Students with limited livestock experience
should, with the assistance of their adviser, select courses
to acquire such experience.
Early in their college planning, students should meet
with their departmental academic advisers assigned by
the Animal Science Undergraduate Coordinator, to dis-
cuss career goals and plan their program of study.

ENTOMOLOGY AND
NEMATOLOGY
Entomology and nematology are biological sciences
dealing with two principal groups of invertebrate ani-
mals. The curriculum is designed to give basic training
in entomology and nematology and specialized pro-
grams in various areas of these two sciences. Students
may follow a basic science or pest management curricu-
lum. Within the pest management program, specialized
emphasis may be given to areas like crop protection,
animal protection or urban pest management. In the
latter, students are trained in insects, nematodes, plant
diseases, and weed control with special reference to
problems in and around residential and other buildings.
Emphasis is also given to business management so stu-
dents are prepared for administrative duties. Students
will be prepared to take the Florida Board of Health
certification examination. Detailed requirements for
specific programs should be obtained from the Depart-
ment of Entomology and Nematology.

FOOD SCIENCE AND HUMAN
NUTRITION

The Food Science and Human Nutrition Depart-
ment offers three curricula, Food Science, Nutrition and
Dietetics, and Nutritional Sciences. Students in these
curricula take a common core of courses, required
courses for their area of concentration, and electives.
Students should consult the departmental advisers for
guidance and approval of electives.
The Food Science curriculum relates chemistry,
biochemistry, microbiology, engineering, other basic
sciences, and management to food manufacturing, pro-
cessing, preserving, distribution, and packaging for im-
mediate or future use. General areas of study include:
chemical, microbiological, and nutritional properties of
raw and processed foods; role of processing and engi-
neering in modifying food properties; food deterioration
and spoilage; role of additives and other ingredients;
food safety; food fermentation and new food product
innovations. Students may specialize in food processing,
food chemistry, food engineering and food microbiol-
ogy. Cooperative programs are also available for stu-
dents seeking to concentrate on 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 American Dietetic Association (ADA)-approved
Nutrition and Dietetics curriculum is designed to give
students a foundation in nutrition and to prepare them
for professional field experience. This curriculum pro-
vides an excellent undergraduate education for students
planning to enter a graduate program in human nutri-
tion.
The Nutritional Sciences curriculum prepares stu-
dents for the professions of medicine, dentistry, or
veterinary medicine or for graduate study and research
in Nutritional Sciences and related fields. Students com-
plete the preprofessional required core curriculum.

College of Architecture

The College of Architecture provides education,
research, and service for the built and natural environ-
ments of Florida, the nation, and the world. Established
as a school in 1925, the college has grown to be one of
the largest design, planning, and construction institu-
tions in the country. A unique aspect of the college isthe
scope of its professional disciplines which, at the under-
graduate level, include Architecture, Building
Construction, Interior Design, and Landscape Architec-
ture. Graduate programs are available through the
Department of Urban and Regional Planning, the M.E.
Rinker, Sr. School of Building Construction, the De-
partment of Architecture, and the Department of
Landscape Architecture. The college also offers a Ph.D.
program.
The College's teaching, research, and community
service philosophy emphasizes the interdependence of
these professional disciplines. A number of required and
elective courses are open, on a space available basis, to
all majors (e.g. ARC 1211, 1701; BCN 1210, 4012,
4237, 4464, 4471; IND 2100, 2130; LAA 1920, 2710,
4935; URP 4000). In addition, the first 1 1/2 years of
design coursework are common to all three undergradu-
ate design disciplines (architecture, landscape
architecture, and interior design). Research and service
projects conducted through the research centers and
institutes (described below) often entail multidisciplinary,
cross-campus student input and effort.
The Architecture and Fine Arts Library and the Visual
Resources Center are the largest collections of their kind
in the Southeast. Together they provide books, govern-
ment documents, American and foreign periodicals,
subject files, microtext, slides, photographs, reproduc-
tions, and other materialsforundergraduate andgraduate
studies. The AFA Library also maintains its own Rare
Book Collection for scholarly research. Services include
a professional reference service ready to assist in guid-
ance and searches for information. Students may use
additional resources in the University Libraries system.
Students considering application to the College of
Architecture should anticipate, as part of their budget
planning, expenditures for equipment and tools essen-
tial totheir education asdesign, planning, or construction
professionals. For further information in this regard,
students should contact the appropriate department/
school.
The Departments of Architecture and Landscape
Architecture and the M.E. Rinker, Sr. 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, assis-
tantships, fellowships, loans, prizes, and awards are
referred to both individual departments and to informa-
tion provided by the University Office for Student
Financial Affairs in Criser hall.

RESEARCH CENTERS

The College contributes to community, state, re-
gional, 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 Council (FABRIC), the Research
and Education Center for Architectural Preservation,
and the Centerfor Tropical and Subtropical Architecture,
Planningand Construction (TROPARC), the Geofacilities
Planning and Information Center (GEOPLAN), the Cen-
ter for Architectural Technology Research (ARCHTECH),
the Center for Community Redevelopment (DEVEL) and
the Center for Affordable Housing. The College has
established research and training programs of national
prominence such asthe Preservation Institute: Nantucket
and the Preservation Institute: Caribbean. The latter


program is part of the College of Architecture's drive to
develop new links with institutions in the Caribbean
Basin and Latin America.

STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS

Student Government and student organizations take
an active part in the educational program of the College.
Membership in the professional organizations of each
discipline is available to the students. Student chapters of
the American Institute of Architecture Students and the
American Society of Interior Designers, Institute of Busi-
ness Designers, the UF Chapter of the American Society
of Landscape Architects, the Student Planning Associa-
tion, the UF Chapter of the Student Constructors and
Cost Engineers, the Student Chapter of the Associated
Builders and Contractors, the Student Contractors and
Builders Association, and Alpha Rho Chi are all repre-
sented. Students can also participate as members of the
Architecture College Council and the School of Building
Construction Council, the two Student Government
organizations. 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 and the National
Association of Minority Contractors. The College recog-
nizes the importance of student involvement and
encourages and assists participation with professional
groups and societies.

REQUIREMENTS FOR
ADMISSION

The University of Florida and the College of Archi-
tecture encourage applications from qualified students
of all cultural, racial, religious, and ethnic groups. This
section lists the specific requirements for admission to
this College. It should be understood that only minimum
requirements are given and that admission to the College
is a selective process. Because it cannot automatically
guarantee admission to all applicants who satisfy mini-
mum requirements, the College has established a selective
process for the admission of students. Priority in admis-
sion shall be given to those applicants who, in the
judgment of the admissions committee, have thegreatest
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 and
achieved passing scores on the College Level Academic
Skills Test (CLAST; see the Index). Students admitted to
the University at lessthan junior status are assigned to the
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Lower Division, not
the College of Architecture, and such students cannot be
guaranteed space in the preprofessional architecture
courses nor eventual admission to the College. Students
admitted as juniors to Colleges other than the College of
Architecture have no priority for preprofessional or
professional courses and may be considered for enroll-
ment on a space-available basis, after priority College of
Architecture students have been served.
Admission of students having junior status falls into
two categories: 1) those having completed all lower
division requirements and prepared to study atthe third
year professional coursework levels and 2) those need-
ing 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 semes-
ters atthe University of Florida to complete this work due
to the sequential nature of the courses.
An admissions review process is employed for all
applicants who have completed the preprofessional
requirements. Criteria used in review may include any or
all of the following:
Quality of work completed, overall G.P.A.
Achievements in preprofessional courses or courses


related to the student's chosen plan of study.
Pattern of courses completed.
Portfolio review.
1. Curriculum in Architecture: Through an Admis-
sions Committee, the Department of Architecture
annually selects students to enter third year profes-
sional studies. All students who satisfactorilycomplete
the two-year preprofessional programs at Miami-
Dade, Broward, St. Petersburg (Clearwater), and
Hillsborough Community Colleges are eligible for
consideration for third year admission. Applications
fortransferfrom one of the approved preprofessional
programs or from the lower division of the UF
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences must be filed by
the deadline listed in the University Calendar (see
Table of Contents). Transfer students with provi-
sional 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 consult 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, build-
ing 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. Students are selectively admitted to the
upper division program on the basis of portfolio
review, overall grade point average, interview, and
letter of application. Notification of the decision of
the admissions committee shall be made prior to the
close of the springsemester for the junior class which
begins the following fall. Contact the department for
current information.
3. Curriculum in LandscapeArchitecture: Transferand
post-baccalaureate students contemplating the pro-
fessional 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
departmentadviser regarding preprofessional courses
not available at those colleges. Other transfer stu-
dents are urged to begin their preprofessional
coursework in the summer term in order to com-
plete required classes in three semesters. All students
must complete all required general education and
preprofessional coursework prior to admission to
professional studies.
4. Curriculum in Building Construction: See the M.E.
Rinker, Sr. School of Building Construction section
of this catalog.

APPLICATION DEADLINES

The programs in Architecture, Interior Design, and
Landscape Architecture will admitstudents for third year
professional coursework in the fall semester only. Stu-
dents needing to complete some or all of the lower
division requirements shall be reviewed for the fall,

ADVISEMENT

Students planning to major in any program of study
in the College of Architecture shouldsee the proper
departmental chair, program director, adviser, or the
Director of Student Services as soon as possible.

GENERAL REGULATIONS

MAXIMUM AND MINIMUM LOADS
Fifteen to eighteen credits in any regular semester
shall be considered a normal load. A student may be
permitted to register for more than eighteen hourswhen,
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 sta-
tus. It is the student's responsibility to verifythe minimum
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 Services and the appropriate depart-
mental chairperson.
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
preprofessional and professional courses. Additionally,
these courses must be taken in a sequence as specified
by the college or department adviser. 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
positioningof general education and electivecoursework
may occur. The four-year plan shown requires an aver-
age of more than sixteen credits perterm, 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 excel-
lence in their academic work by completing a minimum
of 12 semester hours credit in a semester and achieving
a grade point average of 3.7 or better will earn a position
on the Dean's Honor List. Students whose term averages
are below 3.7 due to grades of I or X are not eligible.
GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS
To be eligible for graduation, the student must earn
a minimum 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 college may not apply toward the calcu-
lation of the College or Architecture average. Specific
grade requirements for the various curricula may be
obtained from the department or dean's offices.
Students planning to enter The Graduate School
must maintain a 3.0 (B) average in upper division work.
GRADUATION WITH HONORS, HIGH HONORS, or
HIGHEST HONORS
The faculty will consider recommendingstudents for
graduation with HONORS, HIGH HONORS, or HIGH-
EST 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 his or her work. The
student will be considered for HONORS, HIGH HON-
ORS, or HIGHEST HONORS upon earning a minimum
academic average established by the department or
school. The average will be calculated on all work
attempted while the student is classified in the upper
division. Transfer credits will be excluded from the
average; HONORS, HIGH HONORS, or HIGHEST
HONORS may be awarded upon a minimum of 48
semester hour credits taken at the University of Florida.
For HIGH or HIGHEST HONORS, a thesis, research
project, or other creative work is also required. Students
should check with their academic unit for minimum
average required.
STUDENT WORK
The College reserves the rightto retain student work
for the purpose of record, exhibition, or instruction.
PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE
Students are urged to obtain before graduation some
experience in the employment of practicing profession-
als 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 contact their faculty adviser for
recommended or required 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 experience through study of planning, de-
sign, and construction projects of unusual interest.
Students frequently combine such studies with atten-
dance at state and national meetings of the professional
organizations in their respective fields. Students should
check with their departments for field trip requirements.
Students considering application to the College of Archi-
tecture should anticipate, as partof their budget planning,
expenditures for equipment and tools essential to their
education as design, planning, or construction profes-
sionals. For further information in this regard, students
should contact the appropriate department/school.

I. CURRICULUM IN ARCHITECTURE

The professional program in architecture leads to the
Master of Architecture degree and, for students without
a baccalaureate degree in another discipline, requires
both undergraduate and graduate study. Successful
completion of the undergraduate curriculum results in
the granting of the degree Bachelor of Design (Architec-
ture), a non-professional degree. Admission into the
graduate program is selective and information regarding
the criteria for admission is contained in The Graduate
School catalog.
In addition to the courses offered at the Gainesville
campus, the department operates a year-round institute
in Vicenza, Italy, for fourth year students who choose to


spend either the fall and spring semesters or the summer
semester abroad. Supplemental fees are required for
participation in this program. Other summer institutes
are conducted on Nantucket Island for the study of
architectural preservation and in the Caribbean Basin for
the study of Caribbean culture and its conservation.
Information on these institutes may be obtained from the
department office.
The number of applicants who can be accepted into
upper division is limited by available classroom space,
studio space, and faculty. The admission process is based
on three criteria: over-all lower division grade point
average, architectural grade point average, and an ex-
hibit score based on an evaluation of each student's
portfolio (1-10 scale). For the past several years, the
average for each criteria has been as follows: over-all
grade pointaverage 3.1,architecturalgrade pointaverage
3.4, and exhibit score 5.5. Students who have not
successfully completed all lower division requirements
will not be admitted. It is the department's policy to
admit the best qualified applicants as evidenced by their
academic achievement and their potential to success-
fully complete the undergraduate program. Registration
for lower division courses may also be limited by avail-
able space and faculty resources and students are
accepted based on procedures established by the de-
partment.
The program of study is included below to show a
typical sequence in which courses are taken. Some
courses in the first two years are offered in semesters in
addition to those shown. Consult the course description
section in the back of the catalog for precise information
on offerings.

College of Business
Administration

The College of Business Administration of the Uni-
versity of Florida was organized in 1926-1927 and its
programs of study include accounting, computer and
information sciences, decision and information sciences,
economics, finance, insurance, management, marketing,
and real estate and urban analysis.
The College's educational objectives are (a) to pro-
vide a broad formal instructional foundation for
responsible participation in business, the professions,
and government; (b) to stimulate interest in social,
economic, and civic responsibilities; (c) to develop com-
petence in making business decisions and in evaluating
policy; and (d) to offer fields of specialization in business
or economics and, especially, to encourage intellectual
inquiry.
Undergraduate degree programs of the College are
based on a broad foundation of study outside the
College, which prepares the student for specialization
through limited concentration in certain fields of busi-
ness administration. To this end, each program of study
is constructed around a core of courses in the functional
areas of business.
Graduate programs in business administration and
economics are provided under the Graduate School of
Business Administration for advanced students with
interest in careers in teaching, research, or business. The
College also participates in programs of adult and execu-
tive development education.
Students have access to the University's computing
facilities; the College also maintains both graduate and
undergraduate computer centers for instructional and
research purposes.

SCHOLARSHIPS AND OTHER
FINANCIAL AID
Information about scholarships and other financial
aid for students in the College may be obtained from the
Director of Student Financial Aid, University of Florida,
Gainesville, Florida 32611.
Information on graduate student financial support
may be obtained from the Director of Graduate Studies,

group, handicap, marital status or age in admission or
access to its programs. Admission to the College is a
selective process and fulfilling minimum requirements
does not automatically guarantee admission. A student's
overall GPA and the GPA for preprofessional courses are
the most important criteria for admission; although the
total record, includingthe student's background, educa-
tional objectives, courses completed and test data all are
considered in evaluating applications for admission.

quirements give majors problem-solving skills in
mathematical and statistical methods, the use of com-
puters, and application processes. The requirements
span traditional academic disciplines to produce multi-
discipline major. Many majors will desire to become a
staff assistant to a line manager or a decision support
specialist in a traditional planning or MS/OR depart-
ment. The basic curriculum focuses on the development
of computing, quantitative, and applications skills, but
also allows the student to gain further specialization in
one of three tracks: Management Science, Operations
Management, or Decision Support Systems. Students
should note the specific requirements for their chosen
track and are advised that courses offered by the DIS
department may not be used to fulfill free-elective
requirements. Finally, DIS majors are required to com-
plete ECO 3101 rather than ECO 3100 in the College of
Business Administration core program.

College of Dentistry

The College of Dentistry is one of the six colleges that
constitute the University of Florida Health Science
Center an integral component, both geographically
and functionally, of the University. Manyconjoint projects
between the College and other units of the Health
Science Center and University have been formulated
and implemented.
The eleven departments which make up the College
of Dentistry are Community Dentistry, Dental
Biomaterials, Endodontics, Operative Dentistry, Oral
Biology, Oral Diagnostic Sciences, Oral and Maxillofa-
cial Surgery, Orthodontics, Pediatric Dentistry,
Periodontology, and Prosthodontics.
The first year of the curriculum includes basic sci-
ence, preclinical, and dental science courses. This
structure allows students to develop psychomotor skills
while completing didactic courses. The basic science
courses are completed in the second year, and all
preclinical courses are completed by the end of the
summer semester of the third year. The remaining five
semesters are devoted to clinical experiences, rotations,
electives, and senior modules. The college's program
includes a variety of teaching methods so that the
instruction in each course can best match the content of
the course and the faculty member's teaching style.
The goals of this College are to prepare the graduate
to enter private dental practice, to enter advanced
education programs in any of the dental specialties, to
enter into research activities, and to be prepared 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 synony-
mous.)
The College presently offers advanced educational
programs in the following areas: one-year programs in
Dental Public Health, Advanced Education in General
Dentistry, and General Practice Residency (the General
Practice Residency is available at the College's Jackson-
ville campus); two-year programs in Endodontics,
Pediatric Dentistry, and Periodontology; and a three-
year program in Orthodontics. A combined program
leading to a certificate in orthodontics and a Ph.D.
degree in medical sciences/oral biology also is offered.
The College offers both a four-year Oral and Maxillofa-
cial Surgery residency (certificate program) and a six-year
program which awards both an M.D. degree and a
certificate in oral and maxillofacial surgery.
The College of Dentistry seeks students of the highest
caliber for its various programs. A strong record of
scholastic achievement, moral character, and motiva-
tion are expected of the applicant. Because of the vast
amount of science which must be mastered by the
dentist, a dental student must have a basic aptitude and
adequate academic preparation in science. 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 responsibil-
ity. 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 ac-
cepted without fulfilling the degree requirements,
provided theyshowevidence of sufficient preprofessional
preparation for the study of dentistry. Applicants with an
overall B average as a minimum will receive strongest
consideration for admission to the College of Dentistry.
Applicants should initiate the application process ap-
proximately 15 months prior to anticipated enrollment
by submitting an application through the centralized
American Association of Dental Schools Application
Service (AADSAS), 1625 Massachusetts Ave., N.W.,
Suite 101, Washington, D.C. 20036.
"The applications process is described in more detail
in this catalog (see Index) and fully in the College of
Dentistry Bulletin. Copies may be obtained by writing to
the Office of Admissions, College of Dentistry, University
of Florida, BoxJ-445,JHMHC, Gainesville, Florida 32610-
0445.

UNDERGRADUATE
PREPARATION FOR DENTISTRY
Preprofessional students at the University of Florida
may major in a program offered by any department or
college in the University; however, an in-depth back-
ground in biological sciences is necessary to master the
dental curriculum. The Office of Preprofessional Educa-
tion is described in this catalog (see Index).










College of Education
The College of Education is officially responsible for
teacher education atthe University of Florida. University
teacher education programs are approved by the State
Department of Education and the National Council for
Accreditation of Teacher Education.
Undergraduate programs prepare teachers in Agri-
cultural and Extension Education through the College of
Agriculture; Art Education through the College of Fine
Arts; Health Science Education and Exercise and Sport
Sciences through the College of Health and Human
Performance; Music Education through the College of
Fine Arts; Secondary Education (Biology, Chemistry,
English, French, Language Arts, Mathematics, Physics,
Social Sciences or Spanish) through the College of Lib-
eral 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 Science Education,
Music Education and Exercise and Sport Sciences, stu-
dents will be recommended for initial teachercertification
upon the completion of their undergraduate degrees. In
the program areas of elementary education, special
education, and various areas of secondary education,
students will not be recommended for initial teacher
certification until they complete an additional year of
academic study in the College of Education, which may
lead to the Master of Education degree.

PROTEACH
A program for the Preparation of Professional Teachers
Teaching is a more difficult and demanding task
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 edu-
cational background is essential to success in later life.
More is expected of professional teachers.
In response to this challenge, the College of Educa-
tion has developed a program to prepare teachers in
elementary education, special education, and the vari-
ous areas of secondary education. PROTEACH (from
PROfessional TEACHer) is a rigorous program consisting
of five years of intensive work: general background
knowledge, professional studies, and academic special-
ization designed to culminate in a Master of Education
degree.
The curriculum of PROTEACH incorporates the best
available information about effective teachers' knowl-
edge, skills, and personal attributes. The latest
developments in instructional approaches and new
technologies are used. PROTEACH is not built upon
previous programs but upon a reconceptualization of
what a beginning teacher should know, should be able
to do, and should be as a model for youth. PROTEACH
incorporates increased 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, includ-
ing 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 Edu-
cation, including 18 hours in one academic discipline.
Students in the various subject areas of Secondary
Education are required to have an undergraduate major
in the subject they are planningto 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 cho-
sen teaching field, take the expanded foundational
studies in education. Those foundational studies include


the social, philosophical, and historical foundations of
education; human growth and development; ethical
principles governing teachers; legal provisions affecting
education; handicapped children in regular classrooms;
educational diagnosis and evaluation; interpersonal re-
lations; the cognitive process in education; instructional
design and implementation; and the use of computers in
the classroom.
The clinical componentof PROTEACH begins in the
third year and continues through the fifth year. Students
engage in early observation, supervised practice, and a
concluding internship in the public schools as well as
campus-based clinical experiences including
microteaching, simulation, and other controlled situa-
tions. 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 chal-
lenging new professional program.
PROTEACH students in Elementary Education and
Special Education receive the Bachelor's degree upon
the successful completion of the first of two phases of the
approved teacher education program, including a pre-
scribed set of courses and experiences. An additional
year is required for completion of the University of
Florida's approved teacher education programs in El-
ementary Education and Special Education.

ADMISSION
The University of Florida and the College of Educa-
tion encourage applications from qualifiedstudents of
both sexes from all cultural, racial, religious, and ethnic
groups. The College offers undergraduate programs in
Elementary Education and Special Education. In El-
ementary Education and Special Education, a student
must complete an additional academic year of study
which may lead to the Master of Education degree prior
to recommendation for initial teacher certification. In
the various areas of secondary education, a student must
complete an undergraduate degree from the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences and complete an additional
academic year of study in the College of Education
which may lead to the Master of Education degree prior
to recommendation for initial teacher certification.
Listed below are the specific requirements for ad-
mission to the undergraduate programs in the College of
Education. It should be understood, however, that mini-
mum requirements are given and that admission to the
College is a selective process. The College is unable to
guarantee a place to every applicant who satisfies the-
minimum requirements. The two major criteria for ad-
mission are the American College Test (ACT) or the
Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) and the grade point
average (GPA). The College establishes minimum GPA
requirements for each program which reflect the likeli-
hood the student will meet Graduate School admission
requirements. These GPA requirements vary with the
number of applicants, availability of space and the
number of faculty in a given program. A student's entire
record, including educational objectives, pattern of
courses previously completed, quality of previous aca-
demic records and test data will be considered in
evaluating an application for admission. Priority for
admission will be given to those applicants whose poten-
tial on the basis of their record indicates the greatest
likelihood of success in the program requested.
A student who does not meet all the requirements
for admission may petition the College of Education for
admission. A limited number of students may be admit-
ted through this procedure. A petition for admission
cannot beconsidered until studentsubmitsan American
College Test score or a Scholastic Aptitude Test score as
required by State Board Rule for admission to a teacher
education program.

EDUCATION


A FUTURE IN EDUCATION
Florida employment opportunities abound for
graduates of approved teacher education programs. The
need for excellent teachers in Florida is critical. As an
example of incentives being offered to attract qualified
students, the State of Florida offers Teacher Scholarship/
Loans to students enrolled full-time in approved teacher
education programs leading to certification in critical
shortage subject areas.


Students considering careers in one of the many
fields of education are encouraged to seek information
from the Office of Student Services, 134-E Norman Hall
or from the Graduate Studies Office, 146 Norman Hall,
or from the specific department.










College of Engineering

The engineer engages in creative design and con-
struction and in research and development serving as
a bridge between human needs and the storehouse of
theoretical knowledge. In applying science to the better-
ment of life, the engineer couples science with the
management of people, money, time, machines, and
materials. Engineering challenges the individual, stimu-
lating ingenuity and resourcefulness, and yielding a
rewarding sense of creative accomplishment.
The engineer deals with real problems in the real
world. This requires a thorough working knowledge of
mathematics and the sciences as well as an understand-
ing of the legal, economic, and social restrictions of
contemporary society. Clear and precise communica-
tions, oral and written, are required of the engineer who
delivers judgments, plans, and decisions. A sound
knowledge of the engineering field and of related disci-
plines is required sothatthe engineercanwork effectively
with others other engineers, scientists, and techni-
cians in fulfilling engineering assignments. Above all,
the engineer, as a professional, is expected to be a
responsible citizen.
The various undergraduate programs in the College
of Engineering are founded on mathematics and the
physical sciences. Additional emphasis is placed upon
the humanities and social sciences to develop judgment,
perspective, and curiosity. Many graduates continue
their formal education beyond the bachelor's degree.
The education of an engineer should not stop upon
completion of a degree program. Education, formal or
otherwise, is a lifelong process for the successful engi-
neer.
The curricula of the College of Engineering are
planned to achieve these objectives and to provide a
wide range of choices to the student selecting a degree
objective. The department is the basic organizational
unit within the College of Engineering and has both
academic and administrative responsibilities for pro-
grams leading to the bachelor's degree and beyond.

ESSENTIAL PREPARATION
Modern engineering education demands much in
the way of specific high school preparation not required
in other university-level programs. The beginning engi-
neeringstudent should have a good understandingofthe
basic physical sciences, a highly developed ability in
mathematics, and the competence to read rapidly and
with comprehension. The College of Engineering con-
siders a minimum adequate high school level preparation
to include the following:
Essentials Year
Elementary algebra ......................... 1
Intermediate and advanced algebra ............ 1
Plane geometry ........................ 1
Trigonometry ......................... 1/2
Chemistry ..... ...................... 1
Physics ................... .............. 1
Desirable
Additional Mathematics ................... 1/2


Deficiencies in the above subjects may be overcome
by registering in certain foundation courses before pro-
ceeding with parts of the regular engineering program.
See this catalog's Admission as a Freshman section for
complete admission information.
THE GENERAL PLAN OF STUDY
The study programs leading to the bachelor's de-
grees in engineering described under the separate
headings on the following pages are carefully planned
into an organized sequence. The aggressive, strongly
motivated student with proper high school preparation
can complete one of these programs in about 41/2 years,
including a summer term, by scheduling 15 credit hours
each semester.
As a general rule, subjects basic to all fields of
engineering are studied while the student is enrolled in
the first two years of the University or in a pre-engineer-
ingprogram ofa community orjuniorcollege.Specialized
study is taken in the third and later years within a
department of the College of Engineering, and the
program of coursework can be tailored to the student's
preparation, interests, and abilities.
The University of Florida and the University of North
Florida (UNF), Jacksonville, Florida have a joint program
in Electrical Engineering located at the UNF in Jackson-
ville. Applicants to this program should submit their
application through the University of North Florida.

FINANCIAL AID
Information about general financial aid can be ob-
tained from the Office for Student Financial Affairs,
University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida 32611. The
College of Engineering offers limited financial aid for
students at the freshman or sophomore level. Students
are normally admitted into the College when entering
their junior year. The Agricultural Engineering Depart-
ment and Chemical Engineering Department have a few
small industry-supported scholarships for students at the
freshman level and the Chemical Engineering Depart-
ment also has a few awards for students transferring at
the junior level. Minority students planning to major in
Engineering should contact the Director of Minority
Af airs in the College of Engineering for information
about financial aid.
After enrolling in the College, a student may apply for
a college, departmental, or minority scholarship. Awards
are made each spring for the following academic year.
Most awards are based on financial need as well as
scholastic performance. Applications are available early
during the spring semester from the department coun-
selors or Academic Dean's Office.
An emergency short-term loan fund is accessible
through the Office for Student Financial Affairs to assist
students through emergency situations.
HONORARY, PROFESSIONAL, AND
TECHNICAL SOCIETIES
Students in the College of Engineering are encour-
aged to participate in extracurricular activities including

for admission to the undergraduate programs offered in
this college.
The College of Engineering encourages applications
from all prsons regardless of their race, color, religion,
sex, disability, age, or national origin. All applicants are
referred to the College for selection.
Because of the limitations on space, facilities, and
number of faculty, the College of Engineering has had to
become a selective admission college. Specific require-
ments for admission will vary between programs.
Applicants with specific questions are encouraged to
contact the Academic Dean of the College of Engineer-
ing or the program counselor for appropriate counseling.
Applicants not accepted in their first choice program
may be admissable to another program upon applica-
tion.
Direct Admission: Requirements for direct admis-
sion to the College are given in the Admissions section of
this catalog.
Students Classified UF: A student in the lower divi-
sion can request transfer to the College of Engineering
any time after completion of one semester.
Many departments require such students to have
completed a substantial portion of the pre-engineering,
mathematics, physics, chemistry, and English course
sequences described under the Pre-Engineering Cur-
riculum (next section).
Transfer from Community and Junior Colleges: A
student in a community or junior college who has
completed the Associate of Arts certificate or 60 semes-
ter hours of credit is eligible to apply to transfer directly
into the College of Engineering.
Students wishing to transfer into the College of
Engineering after completing the Associate of Arts de-
gree in a community or junior college should tailor their
Associate of Arts certificate program as follows:
1. Satisfy the general education requirements of the
community or junior college.
2. Take the following required coursework:
a. mathematics through analytic geometry, and
calculus of several variables 12 semester
hours; also taking differential equations as re-


quired by the proposed major 3 semester
hours is recommended when time and availabil-
ity permit.
b. chemistry including general chemistry with
laboratory and qualitative analysis 8 semester
hours
c. general physics with calculus and laboratory
8 semester hours
d. biological sciences 3 semester hours
3. Refer to the University of Florida's Transfer
Advisement Guidebook for specific course require-
ments for each degree program. This guidebook is
available at each community or junior college.
4. Avoid taking technical or vocational education
courses (i.e., those required for the Associate of
Science certificate). Such courses are not normally
creditable toward an engineering degree.

PRE-ENGINEERING CURRICULUM
Students whose high school preparation meets the
criteria previously described will normally complete the
following program during the freshman and sophomore
years at the University of Florida.
This program combines the University-wide General
Education Requirement (described in the Lower Division
Requirements section) with a preprofessional plan for
engineering. Wherever possible, students should use the
courses required in the pre-engineering sequence to
satisfy the distribution portion of the General Education
Requirement. Engineering students who do not com-
plete the program noted below will be required to take
whatever additional courses are necessary to remove the
deficiency and satisfy program graduation requirements.
The minimum course load for full-time students is 12
credit hours each semester, but most students take 13 to
16 credit hours. At this rate, it takes at least 4 1/2 years
including a summer term to earn a B.S. degree. It will
take somewhat longer for students who need prepara-
tor courses before entering the program described
be ow.
In planning the physical science and mathematics
portion of the academic program, a freshman should talk
with the Academic Dean or a College of Engineering
program counselor.
The distribution requirements in Social Sciences,
English, Humanities, and (in most departments) Biologi-
cal Sciences can be met by (a) advance placement (AP),
(b)appropriateCollege Level Examination Program(CLEP)
credits or (c) courses selected from the listing in the
Authorized Courses for General Education section of this
catalog. Note that the College of Engineering requires
specific courses in some subject areas.
Some departments will admit students without hav-
ing completed all of the pre-engineering curriculum
requirements. Students desiring early admission are
encouraged to contact the departmentof theirchoice for
information about that department's specific admission
requirements.
Students who desire to learn about engineering
career opportunities or who are unsure of their major are
encouragedtotake EGN 1002 Introduction to Engineering
(1 credit hour). This course is graded S-U.

COLLEGE REGULATIONS

English Requirement: Responsibility for the correct
and effective use of spoken and written English rests
primarily upon the student. Any instructor in the College
of Engineering may, with the approval of the chair of the
department and the academic dean, require a student
who shows a deficiency in English to complete additional
courses over and above the curriculum requirements for
the degree.
Each student in the College is required to complete
in accordance with degree program requirements for 2
or 3 credits the course ENC 3213, Technical Writing,
with a grade of C or better, after being classified as a 3UF
or 3EG Student.
Computer Literacy Requirement: Students should
have basic computer skills for word processing, spread
sheet, and data base program utilization. Prior to entry to
the upper division of the College of Engineering, students
lacking these skills may take CAP 3802, Introduction to
Computer Programming and Software Packages, attend
appropriate non-credit short courses from the Center for
Instructional and Research Computing Activities (CIRCA
in 211 CSE, or participate in tutorials conducted by the
student chapter of the Association for Computing Ma-
chinery. These computer skills are a prerequisite for COP
3212, Computer Programming for Engineers, and other
upper division courses.Owning a personal computer is
highly desirable; However, it is not necessary since
computer facilities are available on the campus for
student use.
Thesis: A thesis is not required of candidates for the
baccalaureate degree in the College of Engineering.
However, exceptional students maybe granted permis-








COLLEGES


sion by the academic dean, upon recommendation of
the chair of the department, to undertake a thesis in lieu
of required or elective work in the department in which
the student is enrolled. Not more than four semester
hours will be allowed for such thesis work.
Credit for Special Work:.
1. Upon the recommendation of the chair of the
department and the approval by the academic dean,
a student during the course of study may do practical
work under approved supervision in industry. By
submitting a satisfactory report, based upon a pre-
viously approved outline, and by passing an
examination, a student may receive college credit
not to exceed three credit hours. Students will
register for the proper departmental practical work
course to receive such credit.
2. Where it is determined by the department con-
cerned that an exceptional student may profit by
supplementingthe regular program of coursework in
a particular area, the student may register for indi-
vidual study in the chosen field. Credit for such work
should not exceed six credit hours. To receive such
credit, the student must register forthe departmental
course number 4905.
A student may not apply more than eight credit
hours total for individual study including high honors
projects, co-op work experience, practical work experi-
ence, and special problems or special topics for credit
toward a degree program.
Elective Credit: It is the policy of the College that
engineering students cannot use freshman level courses
for technical and nontechnical elective credits.
Nontechnical electives may be taken as an S-U option
(see S-U student academic regulations). Any Physical
Education Activities courses taken after reaching 3EG
must be taken as an S-U option. Foreign language credits
at the freshman level may, within the discretion of the
department, be credited as nontechnical electives, pro-
vided that the student presents at least two semesters of
work in the same language with a grade of C or better for
each semester.
Grade Average Required for Graduation: The re-
quirement for graduation with a Bachelor's degree is a
grade average of C or higher in all work taken after being
classified as a junior, as well as for all UF work, and
successful completion of all required courses.
Maintenance of Academic Standards: If at any time
after admission to the College of Engineering a student's
college grade point average falls below 2.00, the student
will be placed on college probation. A student may also
be placed on probation if normal academic progress is
not maintained in the program of study. The University
authorizes each college to set its own standards for
exclusion of a student who fails or refuses to maintain
normal academic progress. Failure to satisfactorily com-
plete the terms of probation will result in the ineligibility
of the student for further registration in the College of
Engineering. It is the policy of the College of Engineering
that any undergraduate studentwho withdraws from the
University for the second time will be automatically
placed upon college probation which will continue until
graduation. Any student on college probation for this
reason who withdraws for a third time from the Univer-
sity may, at the discretion of the Academic Dean, be
ineligible for further registration in the College of Engi-
neering.
Attendance Regulations: The College supports the
University regulations regarding absences and unsatis-
factorywork; see Index under"Attendance Regulations."
Particular attention is directed to the provision which
allows departmental chairmen to drop students from any
course for which the student has not attended at least
one of the first two meetings.
Advanced ROTC: Some engineering students may
elect to enroll in the Advanced ROTC programs offered
bythe Army, Navy, and the Air Force. Graduates of these
programs are commissioned as second lieutenants or
ensigns as described elsewhere in this catalog.


Advanced courses in Military Science are acceptable
on a limited basis, with departmental approval, for credit
as technical or nontechnical electives toward a degree in
engineering.
Correspondence Courses: (See Student Academic
Regulations "Degrees and Graduation.")
A student in the College will not be permitted to
register for and work on correspondence courses while
enrolled in the College unless special permission is
obtained from the academic dean of the College and the
Registrar. A student on probation must have permission
of the academic dean to register for correspondence
courses when not enrolled in the College. A student who
has been suspended will not be permitted to take
correspondence courses for credit until the suspension is
removed. A grade of C or better is required to receive
credit for a correspondence course.
Dean's List:
Each semester the academic dean's office compiles
a list of those students whose work for the preceding
semester has been of a high quaility. This recognition is
accorded to students in the College of Engineering who:
a. earn a minimum of 14 hours of credit during a
semester or 12 hours of credit during the summer
terms;
b. receive a 3.2 average during the period; and
c. have no grade below C for the period.
Drop Policy: Students classified 1 and 2EG are al-
lowed a total of two drops after the published drop date.
Similarly, students classified 3,4,5, and 6EG are allowed
a total of two unrestricted drops (free drops). A student
with an initial course load of 15 credits or more will be
permitted to drop a course without penalty provided this
is done by the end of the seventh week of class and the
total credits remaining are 12 or more. If these drop
criteria are not met, the student will be assessed one
unrestricted drop for each course dropped. The College
of Engineering drop policy for the summer terms will
allow a student to drop a course during the first three
weeks of the 'A' or 'B' terms without penalty if he or she
has an initial registration of 7 credit hours or more and
will not drop below 5 credit hours. Students enrolled for
the'C' term may drop a course during the first six weeks
without penalty if they are registered for at least 13 credit
hours and will not drop below 10 credit hours. Calcula-
tion of registration for the 'A' and 'B' terms will be credit
hours in 'A' or 'B' plus one-half of 'C.' Calculation, of
registration for the 'C' term will be credit hours in 'C' plus
2 times the 'A' registration. No exceptions are made to
this drop policy and no petitions regarding it will be
accepted.

HONORS
Honors: Students in the College of Engineering are
designated as Honor Students when they have met all
the following conditions:

3. have completed at least 16 credit hours while
enrolled in the College of Engineering;
4. have been recommended by the major depart-
ment after the departmental faculty has reviewed
the student's record for satisfactory conduct and
academic progress.
For honor students, the grade point average referred
to in condition 1 above is termed the honor point
average.
Special consideration is given when honor students
wish to substitute courses, provided they have main-
tained the conditions for honor student designation and
have met all Accreditation Board for Engineering and
Technology and college core course requirements. The
student will prepare a written petition, obtain depart-


mental recommendation, and visitthe academic dean to
request approval for such substitutions.

Eligibility for the high or highest honors program
requires:
1. a college honor point average of 3.50 or higher;
2. recommendation by the faculty of the major
department.
Participation in the high or highest honors program
requires that the student:
1. accept in writing the academic dean's invitation
to participate in the program no later than the end of
the term before graduation;
2. carry out a high or highest honors project and
submit a thesis based on the project.
If the student accepts the invitation to participate in
the high or highest honors program, the academic dean
appoints a committee to oversee and approve all stages
of the research project, thesis submittal, and oral exami-
nation. The committee, recommended to the academic
dean by the department chair, is composed of two
faculty members from the student's major department
and one faculty member from another department of the
University.
In planning the student's high or highest honors
program, the committeetakes intoaccountthe academic
and career goals of the student. The committee super-
vises the high or highest honors project and the oral
examination; upon satisfactory completion of all re-
quirements, the candidate is recommended by the
committee to the faculty of the major department. The
committee's recommendation shall include the receipt
of high or highest honors.
Graduation with High or Highest Honors requires:
1. completion of all required work of the major
department and a college honor point average of
at least 3.50
2. approval by the student's committee
3. recommendation of the major department
4. approval by the college faculty
When a high or highest honors project is a part of a
student's program, credit may be obtained by registra-
tion in a course carrying the prefix of the appropriate
department. A student may not apply more than eight
credit hours total for individual study including high or
highest honors projects, co-op work experience, practi-
cal work experience and special problems or special

AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERING
The agricultural and food industry is the largest single
industry in the United States and in Florida. The growth
of agriculture and technology have proceeded together
and now agricultural production and processing indus-
tries require advanced machines and systems. The
industries providing these machines and the related
systems require engineering skills which agricultural
engineers provide. The agricultural engineer is also
involved in natural resources conservation stemming
from drainage and watershed hydrology activities.
Agricultural engineering is unique in its concern for
the engineering problems of biological production and
processing. The agricultural enneer solves the engi-
neering problems associated withagriculture such as the
conversion of the sun's energy into biological (food)
products using soil nutrition resources and water in
controlled ways. The agricultural engineer uses basic
entering training combined with knowledge of agri-
cultural and biological systems to design functional
machines and equipment to process and handle these
products so that quality is enhanced. No challenge could
be greater and more rewarding than that related to food
production and processing in view of the population
explosion and projected world food shortage.
The education of the agricultural engineer includes
basic physical and engineering sciences and also courses
in biological and agriculturalsciences. The courses in
agricultural engineering unify the concepts learned into
a practical ability to solve a broad range of engineering
problems confronting the agricultural and food industry.
Agricultural engineers have numerous career oppor-
tunities in various segments of the large Florida agricultural
industry and with manufacturers of equipment and
supplies for agriculture throughout the nation. Agricul-
tural engineers are sought by state and federal agencies
for careers in irrigation, drainage, and water resource
management and pollution control. Excellent opportu-
nities are available for graduate study. This program is
offered cooperatively with the College of Agriculture.
Special Grade Requirements: In addition to the col-
lege requirements for graduation, a minimum course
grade of C is required of all Agricultural Engineering


majors in Statics, Dynamics, Mechanics of Materials, and
in each required Agricultural Engineering course. Stu-
dents receiving less than a C grade in such courses will be
required to repeat the course as soon as possible.
Admission Requirements: Applicants should under-
stand thatadmission tothis program isaselective process.
Admission will be based on a student's entire record

CHEMICAL ENGINEERING
Although chemical engineering has existed as a field
of engineering for only about 80 years, its name is no
longer completely descriptive of this dynamic, growing
profession. The work of the chemical engineer is neither
restricted to the chemical industry nor limited to chemi-
cal changes or chemistry. Instead, modern chemical
engineers, who are also called process engineers, are
concerned with all the physical and chemical changes of
matter to produce economically a product or result that
is useful to mankind. More than most fields, the educa-
tion of the chemical engineer has been based on the
fundamental sciences of physics and chemistry, on
mathematical and computer techniques, and on basic
engineering principles. Such a broad background has
made the chemical engineer extremely versatile and
capable of working in a wide variety of industries:
chemical, petroleum, aerospace, nuclear, materials, mi-
croelectronics, sanitation, food processing, and computer
technology. The chemical industry alone provides an
opportunity for the chemical engineer to participate in
the research, development, design, or operation of
plants for the production of newsynthetic fibers, plastics,
chemical fertilizers, vitamins, antibiotics, rocket fuels,
nuclearfuels, paper pulp, photographic products, paints,
fuel cells, transistors, and the thousands of chemicalsthat
are used as intermediates in the manufacture of the
above products.
In practice, the activities of the chemical engineer
are sufficiently diversified to attract a wide range of
talents and abilities. The chemical engineers working in
process design determine the sequence of steps to be
followed in producing a useful product and calculate the
sizes of the equipment required and thetotal cost; those
working in development research do small scale studies
on new processes or products; those working in produc-
tion improve and coordinate the operation of plants and
equipment. Others do fundamental research on the laws
ofscienceand their application. Manychemical engineers
work in technical sales, cost estimation, patent law, and
plant supervision. A chemical engineering background is
often the best route to top-level management positions.


Admission Requirements: Applicants should under-
stand that admission to this program is a selective process.
Admission will be based on a student's whole record
including educational objectives, courses completed,
quality of academic record, and other important facts.
Priority in admission will be given to those students
whose potential on the basis of the entire record indi-
cates the greatest likelihood of success in the program.
Applicants should have a grade point average in pre-
engineering technical courses of 2.5 or higher (calculus,
chemistry, and physics).
Degree Programs: The following degrees are offered
by the Chemical Engineering Department: Bachelor of
Science in Chemical Engineering, Bachelor of Science,
Master of Engineering, Master of Science, Doctor of
Philosophy.
All Chemical Engineering majors shall maintain sat-
isfactory progress (GPA of 2.0 or higher) in Chemical
Engineering professional courses as well as in overall
record. Also, to proceed to succeeding courses, C grades
or better must be obtained in ECH 3012, 3023, 3203,
and CAP 3210. However, since enrollment in selected
courses prerequisite to senior level professional courses
may be limited by insufficient staff and facilities, mini-
mum performance may not guarantee completion of the
curriculum.
All prospective students are urged to contact the
Department directly for more detailed information about

CIVIL ENGINEERING
Civil Engineering is directly concerned with the
activities of man and the environment. It isthe oldestand
most diverse branch of engineering and includes the
design and construction of brides, buildings, dams,
waterways, coastal protection works, airports, pipelines,
missile launching facilities, blast shelters, railroads, high-
ways, sanitary systems, ocean structures and facilities,
foundations, harbors, waterworks, and many other sys-
tems and structures upon which modern civilization
depends. In its broadest sense, the function of the civil
engineer may be defined as the adaption of the physical
features of the earth to the needs of man. Approximately
one-fourth of all engineers are engaged in Civil Engineer-
ing.
The concentration of population into cities, the mass
use of the automobile and the airplane, the increasing
demands of industry for greater quantities of power and
the public's demand for clean streams and beaches, for
clean air, and the potential for human expansion into
space and the oceans present the civil engineer with
many challenging problems.
To assist the young engineer to meet these chal-
lenges, the Civil Engineering Department offers a basic
program that provides the minimum education for prac-
tice in this broad field of engineering service to society.
Beyond the Bachelor's degree, advanced degrees may
be obtained in several of the major areas of civil engi-
neering such as transportation, hydraulics, structural
engineering, soil mechanics, foundations, and construc-
tion.
While it is essential that the civil engineer understand
the fundamentals of his or her chosen field, it is also
necessary that he or she understands the role other
branches of engineering play in the completed work.
The Civil Engineering curriculum therefore includes
courses from other engineering disciplines, and because
of this broad program, it provides an excellent basic
engineering education. Thus, the student who is notsure
which field of engineeringto choose is provided with the
broadest of engineering backgrounds, a springboard, so
to speak, to specialization.
Degree Programs
The Civil Engineering Department offers the follow-
ing degrees: Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering,
Bachelor of Science in Surveying and Mapping, Master
of Civil Engineering, Master of Engineering Master of
Science, the Engineer degree, and Doctor of Philosophy.







ENGINEERING


CURRICULUM LEADING TO
THE DEGREE OF BACHELOR
OF SCIENCE IN CIIL
ENGINEERING
The program of study leading to the degree of
Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering has been estab-
lished to meet the requirements for entry into the
professional practice of civil engineering and to meet the
General Education requirements of the University of
Florida. The program is divided intotwo parts: a two year
pre-engineering program and the upper division profes-
sional portion. The pre-engineering requirement may be
satisfied while classified as UF in the Collegeof Liberal
Arts and Sciences or with the pre-engineering Associate
of Arts degree program offered by the various commu-
nity colleges in Florida.
Civil Engineering is a broad discipline of study that
influences the life of all society. The requirements to
enter the profession are rigorous, so the academic pro-
gram is longer, therefore, than those of many other
disciplines. The program requires completion of 143
semester hours and most students should plan on an
educational period of five years.
All courses required for the BSCE degree will be
listed in the University of Florida catalog with an indica-
tion of the probable term, Fall or Spring, in which they
will be taught Courses will be offered as announced but
there is no certainty they will be offered at other times
during the year. Students should familiarize themselves
with the degree requirements and arrange their sched-
ules accordingly. Program counselors will assist the
students in planning their programs.
Admission Requirements
Applicants should understand that admission to this
program is a selective process. Admission will be based
on a student's whole record including education objec-
tives, coursescompleted, and qualityof academic record.
Priority in admission will be given to those students
whose potential on the basis of the entire record indicates
the greatest likelihood of success in the program.
Applicants should have a pre-engineering program
grade point average of 2.0 or higher. A minimum grade
of C is required in all chemistry, calculus and physics with
calculus courses, all English courses, STA 3032-Engi-
neering Statistics, COP 3212 & COP 3212L-Computer
Programming for Engineers and Lab, and any upper
division courses taken prior to admission to the Civil
Engineering Department.
Department Requirements
A minimum grade of C is required for all courses
marked with an asterisk (*) in the following list and for
those courses which are prerequisite to other courses in
the curriculum. A grade point average of 2.0 is the
minimum required for all civil engineering courses, for all
upperdivision work, and all University of Floridacourses.
In addition, all BSCE students must take the Engineering
Intern (El) exam offered by the Department of Profes-
sional Regulation prior to graduation. EGM
3420-Engineering Mechanics is not acceptable toward
fulfilling the Statics and Dynamics requirement.
Probation and Exclusion Policy
A BSCE student who falls below a 2.00 GPA upper
division or University cumulative, or fails to make satis-
factory progress, will be placed on a planned program.
If this program is not met, a written request must be made
to the Department's Committee for Admission and
Retention Appeals explaining why satisfactory progress
has notbeen madeand whatcircumstances havechanged
to indicate that improvements will be made in future
terms.
Students on academic probation must have the
Department Chairperson's permission to pre-register.


Any student who has failed to satisfactorily meet the
planned program or who is a civil engineering major but
pursuing a degree in another department may be ex-
cluded from the Department of Civil Engineering.
Further, any student who is enrolled in an upper
division college other than Engineering, may be dropped
from civil engineering class rolls.

ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING
Electrical Engineering isa science-oriented branch of
engineering primarily concerned with all phases and
development of the transmission and utilization of elec-
tric power and intelligence. The study of electrical
engineering can be conveniently divided into the aca-
demic areas of circuits, electronics, electromagnetics,
electric energy systems, communications, control, and
computer engineering.
Because of the extremely rapid growth and changes
relating to the application of electrical engineering prin-
ciples, the curriculum is designed for concentration on a
solid core of basic foundation courses. Electives are taken
according to individual interest in order to permit a
student to delve more deeply into subject matter previ-
ously introduced. Technical electives, as well as
nontechnical electives, must be selected from the ap-
proved lists of the Electrical Engineering Department.
The department's extensive laboratory facilities and
varied research programs will assist in highlighting both







ENGINEERING


the experimental and theoretical approaches to electri-
cal engineering.
The department offers graduate programs for stu-
dents interested in advanced degrees. More and more
students are continuing to graduate school, so those who
may become qualified should seek early counseling. As
early as the sixth and seventh semesters, coursework
may be directed toward future graduate work. Certainly,
electives chosen during the last few semesters of the
undergraduate curriculum may relate to areas of interest
to be pursued in the graduate program.
Degree Programs: The Electrical Engineering De-
partment offers the following degrees at the Gainesville
campus: Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering,
Master of Engineering, Master of Science, Engineer, and
Doctor of Philosophy. The degree Bachelor of Science in
Engineering (Electrical Engineering) is also offered, but
only in the UF/UNF Joint Program in Jacksonville.
Admission: The number of applicants who can be
accepted is limited by the available classroom and
laboratory space, laboratory facilities, and faculty. That
number varies because of normal fluctuations in the
number of students who graduate and who leave the
program. It is the department's policy to admit the best-
qualified applicants as demonstrated by high academic
achievement, within the enrollment limitationsdiscussed
above.
Applicants should understand that admission to this
program is a selective process. Admission will be based
on a student's whole record including educational ob-
jectives, courses completed, quality of academic record,
and other important facts. Priority in admission will be
given to those students whose potential on the basis of
the entire record indicates the greatest likelihood of
success in the program.
Applicants should have grade point averages of (1)
2.5 or better overall, and (2) 2.5 in calculus courses (on
first attempts), and (3) 2.5 in physics (with calculus)
lecture courses (on first attempts).
Once admitted to the program, an electrical engi-
neering student shall maintain satisfactory
progress--generally C or better in all required courses-
and an overall grade point average of 2.0 or higher. In
particular, an electrical engineering student cannot take
an electrical engineering course without having earned
a minimum grade of C in the prerequisite electrical
engineering courses.
In addition tothe other requirementsfor a bachelor's
degree a student must have at least a 2.0 grade point
average in all electrical engineering courses taken, both
required and elective. If a course is repeated, both
grades count in this grade point average.
The Electrical Engineering Department publishes the
Electrical Engineering Counseling Guide which provides
detailed information beyond that stated in this catalog.
Degree Program at UNF: Through a cooperative ar-
rangement, a program leading to a University of Florida
Bachelor of Science in Engineering (Electrical Engineer-
ing) degree is offered on the campus of the University of
North Florida (UNF) at Jacksonville, Florida. Admission
requirements (see above) and curriculum requirements
(see below) are the same as for the Gainesville campus'
program leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in
Electrical Engineering. However, applications for the
program must be made through the Admissions Office at
UNF. Applications can be made for admission in any
semester of the year.

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM IN
ENGINEERING SCIENCE
Engineering Science is a fully accredited Engineering
degree program providing a broad, strong foundation in
mathematics, science, and engineering, coupled with
unusual flexibilityto create individualized, nontraditional
areas of emphasis or concentration. The program is
intended for good students who wish to design person-
alized curricuasatisfyingspecial interestsand objectives.
Commonly, these students are seeking a program em-
phasizing:
combinations of conventional disciplines,
a particularly broad foundation for graduate study
in a chosen field,
preparation for professional schools such as med-
cine, law, or management,
new, uncommon, or recently significant areas of
study which do not fit well within traditional cur
ricula.
The Engineering Science program accommodates
this wide range of objectives by providing a large selec-
tion of elective courses. Students and their advisors
cooperate in choosing these electives to custom design
curricula to fit individual interests and educational oals.
The number of possible areas of concentration is almost
limitless and new concentrations are continually being
created by students. Recently-designed concentrations
include:
m Applied Mathematics and Computer Science
Applied Physics
Automation and Manufacturing
SAvionics
Biomechanics
Biomedical Engineering
SCoastal and Oceanographic Engineering
Composite Materials
Control of Dynamical Systems
Creative Product Design
Optics and Lasers
SEnvironmental Engineering
Energy Management and Planning
SExperimental Mechanics
Fluid Mechanics
Instrumentation of Mechanical Systems
SOperations Research
SPre-Dental
SPre-Law
SPre-Medical
SStructural Mechanics
SWave Propagation
Wind Engineering
These concentrations illustrate the broad spectrum
of study areas which may be followed within the frame-
work of this program. You may choose any of these areas
to build a coherent program in some other area to meet
your individual objective. Our advisers will guide you in
designing your program. The Engineering Science Pro-
gram requires a minimum of 135 credits and, for most
students, at least nine semesters of residence. A sample
term-by-term schedule is available on request.
Because of the individualized nature of the Engi-
neeringScience program it is recommended thatstudents
contact the Department of Aerospace Engineering,
Mechanics, and Engineering Science as early as possible.
For additional information about any of the concentra-
tions listed or to investigate creating your own, write,

ENVIRONMENTAL
ENGINEERING SCIENCES
Environmental Engineering Sciences is a field in
which the application of engineering and scientific prin-
ciples is used to protect and preserve human health and
the well-being of the environment. It embraces the
broad field of the general environment including air and
water quality, solid and hazardous wastes, water re-
sources and management, radiological health,
environmental biology and chemistry, systems ecology,
and water and wastewater treatment.
Forexample, water andwetland resources are under
constant threat of pollution from the sewage of an ever-
expanding population and from the multitude of new
chemicals beingdeveloped by ourtechnological society.
Handling and disposing of toxic wastes has become one
of the most critical problems facing environmental engi-
neers today.The program is designed to address


contemporary environmental problems faced by Florida
and the nation. Career opportunities abound in consult-
ingengineering, publicand govemmentagencies, industry
and utilities.
Students in other fields are encouraged to join with
the engineers in this program by selecting environmental
engineering sciences courses and when suitable to un-
dertake master's and doctoral research at the interface
between environmental engineering sciences and their
major field.
The requirements for the degree of Bachelor of
Science in Engineering (Environmental Engineering), are
given below. In addition, the Department of Chemical
Engineering, the Department of Civil Engineering, and
the Department of Aerospace Engineering, Mechanics &
Engineering Science permit their students to pursue
technical concentration in Environmental Engineering
Sciences. This is accomplished through the selection of
appropriate technical elective courses taught by the
Department of Environmental Engineering Sciences.
Persons with pre-medical interests can satisfy admission
requirements for medical school with this program and
judicious selection of electives. Students from other
departments are also welcome to take courses in Envi-
ronmental Engineering Sciences to the extent allowed by
their backgrounds.
Admission Requirements: Applicants should under-
stand that admission to this program is a selective process.:
Admission will be based on a student's whole record
including educational objectives, courses completed,
quality of academic record, and other important facts.
Priority in admission will be given to those students
whose potential on the basis of the entire record indi-
cates the greatest likelihood of success in the program.
Applicants should have a cumulative grade point
average of at least a 2.0 and a "C" average in pre-
engineering technical course sequences (calculus,
chemistry, and physics).
Degree Programs: The Department of Environmen-
tal Engineering Sciences offers the following degrees:

ENGINEERING


INDUSTRIAL AND SYSTEMS
ENGINEERING
Industrial growth has created unusual opportunities
for the industrial and systems engineer. Automation and
the emphasis on increased productivity coupled with
higher levels of systems sophistication are providing
impetus to the demand for the engineering graduates
with a broad interdisciplinary background.
The industrial engineering option prepares the stu-
dent for industrial practice in such areas as product
design, process design, plant operation, production con-
trol, quality control, facilities planning, work system
analysis and evaluation, and economic analysis of opera-
tional systems.
The systems engineering option emphasizes the
integration of knowledge and technology from the engi-
neering, biological, and physical sciences to carry out the
processes of description, analysis, synthesis, and opti-
mization in both the industrial and nonindustrial setting.
Furthermore a student in this area learns to define
problems from a broad perspective in which the con-
tributions of individual components to a total mission are
clearly seen.
Students in both options are trained to use engineer-
ing principles in the solution of problems encountered in
environments and situations where a quantitative basis
for decision making is desirable. Such decision making
requires the application of the tools of economics,
operations research, statistics, mathematics, and engi-
neering analysis, with dependence on the computer.
The industrial engineering option equips the student for
professional engineering practice while the systems en-
gineering option further prepares the studentto carry out
analysis and design of large scale operations requiring
diversified inputs. Both options provide the training
necessary for admission to graduate study.
Degree programs: The Industrial and Systems Engi-
neering Department offers the following degrees:
Bachelor of Science in Industrial and Systems Engineer-
ing, Masterof Engineering, Masterof Science, the Engineer
Degree, and Doctor of Philosophy.
Admission Requirements: Applicants should under-
stand that admission to this program is a selective process.
Admission will be based on a student's whole record
including educational objectives, courses completed,
quality of academic record, and other important facts.
Priority in admission will be given to those students
whose potential on the basis of the entire record indi-
cates the greatest likelihood of success in the program.
Applicants should have a grade point average of 2.5
or higher in pre-engineering courses, with at least a 2.5
grade point average in technical courses (calculus,
chemistry, and physics).
Special Grade Requirements: A grade of C or better
isto be earned in each required statisticscourse and each
required course taught by the Industrial and Systems
Engineering Department in order forthat course to count
toward graduation. Students earning less than a C grade
in such a course will be required to repeat the course as
soon as possible. Note that statistics or departmental
courses taken as electives do not fall under this rule.
Probation Policy: The Department and the College
enforce probation policies which are more stringent
than that of the University. College probation occurs
when a student's upper division grade point average falls
below 2.00. A student is automatically placed on depart-
mental probation when his/her upper division grade
point deficit equals or exceeds the following: 15 for 3 EG
students, 10 for 4EG students, and 5 for 5EG students. A
student who is on departmental probation at the start of
a term of attendance is expected to rectify this condition
atthe end of the same term. In addition, a studentwhose
term grade point average is less than 2.00 is deemed not
to be making satisfactory academic progress and will be
placed on probation. For additional details, consult the
departmental office.


Technical Electives: Normallytechnical elective credit
is restricted to approved courses in engineering, com-
puter science, mathematics, and statistics. Provision is
also made for receiving up to three credits for approved
industrial employment, for certain courses taken as part
of advanced ROTC, and for certain approved business
administration courses.

CURRICULUM LEADING TO
THE CONCURRENT DEGREES
OF BACHELOR OF SCIENCE
IN INDUSTRIAL AND SYSTEMS
ENGINEERING AND MASTER OF
BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION
To enhance their careers, many graduate engineers
embark on the degree of Master of Business Administra-
tion (MBA). The combination of a baccalaureate in
engineering and the MBA is regarded as a valuable
means for obtaining managerial or executive positions.
The College of Engineering, through the Department of
Industrial and Systems Engineering and The College of
Business Administration offer an efficient opportunity for
concurrently obtaining the degrees of BSISE and MBA.
An applicant for the combined curriculum must first
be admitted to the Department of Industrial and Systems
Engineering for study toward the degree of BSISE. Imme-
diately aftercompletion of the required statistics courses,
ESI 4567, and ESI 4568, and with the encouragement
and endorsement of the Department of Industrial and
Systems
Engineering, the student should apply to the College
of Business Administration for acceptance into the com-
bined program. This latter admission will be based on the
student's academic record as well as performance on the
Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT). The
student must complete all details of the application
before April 1 in order to be considered for the program
which starts in the fall. Foreign students must meet
University requirements for the TOEFL.
The concurrent curriculum is intended for superior
students only. Those completing the concurrent curricu-
lum receive two degrees that are fully equivalent to the
degrees taken separately. The concurrent curriculum
contains all program requirements of both degrees, but,
owing to the complementary nature of the two disci-
plines, entrants into the concurrent program are relieved
of certain course requirements. In particular the follow-
ing courses may be deleted from the BSISE curriculum:








COLLEGES


1) ACG 2001
2) EIN 4354
3) ENC 3213
4) Microeconomics
5) 3 credits of technical elective
The following courses may be deleted from the MBA
curriculum:
1)GEB 5756
2) MAN 5505
3) 6 credits of free elective
These deletions reduce by 26 credits the require-
ments of the two separate degrees. The concurrent
program should take about six years to complete.

INTERDISCIPLINARY
ENGINEERING STUDIES
Students who wish to plan a program of study in
engineering markedly different from programs described
under the departmental descriptions should consult the
Office of the Associate Dean. Requirements for admis-
sion to such an interdisciplinary studies program include
(a) a strong educational commitment and (b) a high grade
point average, at least 2.5. The program requires ap-
proval by a committee consisting of three members of
the engineering faculty and by the Academic Dean of the
College and must satisfy the minimum engineering sci-
ence course requirements. Completion of the program
leads to the B.S. degree.

MATERIALS SCIENCE AND
ENGINEERING
Engineering in all its branches requires the effective
use of materials. The curriculum in Materials Science
and Engineering offers preparation in solving problems
in the development, manufacture, and utilization of a
broad range of materials. Competence arises from a firm
understanding of the fundamentals of chemistry, me-
chanics, solid state physics, and structure of materials.
Thus, the Materials Engineer occupies a unique position
between the science and the practice of engineering,
advantageous because it opens a wide variety of avenues
of professional development to heror him. Since progress
with newengineeringconcepts is often dependent upon
success in advancing the capabilities of materials, the.
Materials Engineer is in constant demand by many
segments of industry engaged in production, applica-
tion, and research on materialsand in private engineering
practice. The Bachelor's degree program provides a
general materials science core with specialization in
ceramics, electronic materials, metals, and polymers.
For the student whose primary interest lies in re-
search, a graduate program leadingto advanced degrees
is provided. The entire offering of courses at both the
undergraduate and graduate levels is designed also to
furnish electives for engineers in other specialties who
desire a more extensive understanding of materials than
otherwise available to them.Admission Requirements:
Applicants should understand that admission to this
program is a selective process. Admission will be based
on a student's whole record including educational ob-
jectives, courses completed, quality of academic record,
and other important facts. Priority in admission will be
given to those students whose potential on the basis of
the entire record indicates the greatest likelihood of
success in the program.
Applicants should have a cumulative grade point
average of at least a 2.0 and a "C" average in pre-
engineering technical course sequences (calculus,
chemistry, and physics).
Degree Programs: The Materials Science and Engi-
neering Department offers the following degrees:
Bachelor of Science in Engineering (Materials Science
and Engineering), Master of Engineering, Master of Sci-
ence, the Engineer degree, and Doctor of Philosophy.

MECHANICAL ENGINEERING
Mechanical Engineering is the professional field that
is concerned with motion and the processes whereby
other energy forms are converted into motion. Mechani-
cal engineers are the people who are responsible for
conceiving, designing, manufacturing, testing, and mar-
keting devices and systems that alter, transfer, transform,
and utilize the energy form that ultimately cause motion.
Thus mechanical engineers reside atthevery heart of the
technological society in which we live. They are the
people who make the engines that power ships, trains,
automobiles, and spacecraft; they design the power
plants which convert the energy in fuels, atoms, water-
falls, and sunlight into useful mechanical forms; and they
construct intelligent machines and robots as well as the
gears, cams, bearings, and couplings that facilitate and
control all kinds of mechanical motion.
The broad scope of Mechanical Engineering educa-
tion makes it possible for a student pursuing a degree in
this field to prepare for a wide variety of careers. The core
of the curriculum in Mechanical Engineering is centered
upon the fundamentals of scientific and mathematical
logic. Electives are available wherein a student may
develop specialized interests in the engineering aspects
of heat, work, motion, and energy conversion.

COOPERATIVE EDUCATION
PROGRAM
In cooperation with the College of Engineering, a
number of employers participate in a cooperative pro-
gram for engineering education. Students in this program
alternate terms between study at the University and a
minimum of three supervised learning assignments in
selected industrial and government facilities.
Application for the Cooperative Education Program
is made through the University Placement Office. Ac-
ceptance is based on the academic standing of the
student and, of course, the availability of a suitable
cooperative assignment. The first and last years of the
degree program are normally completed in residence at
the University. Students in the cooperative program
require at least five years to earn the degree.
Community and junior college students who have
been on a cooperative education program may continue
their arrangement with the same employer, with the
approval of the University Placement Office.
The periods spent working are intended to be edu-
cational as well as productive. The student gains
experience as an employee through the usual employ-
ment procedures of interviews, job assignments, training
and so on; receives pay commensurate with the assign-
ment; and takes on assignments of increasing difficulty to
parallel academic advancement.
Upon assignment to an employer, the cooperative
student becomes a member of a two-person team. The
two team members alternate industrial-assignment peri-
ods with each other, so that the cooperating employer
has continuity in the program.
Immediately prior to each period to be spent in the
job assignment, the student is required to register for
participation in the Cooperative Education Program.
Employers wishing to cooperate in the Cooperative
Education Program should contact the Placement Of-
fice.

LIFE SCIENCES, BIOMEDICAL
ENGINEERING, AND
PRE-MEDICAL PROGRAMS
There is a growing need in our society for individuals
prepared in both engineering and life sciences.
Qualified individuals so trained will probably find a
diversity of career paths open to them. This preparation
particularly suits a candidate for admission to medical
school, but it qualifies him or her equally to pursue an
engineering career in the specialized fields of bioengi-
neering or environmental engineering or to continue
education with graduate study in biomedical engineer-
ing or the life sciences.
Several departments of the College, after consulta-
tion with the College of Medicine, have established
special programs in this field. In general, these are of the
same length as the conventional curriculum and were
achieved by substituting for groupings of electives eight
credits in organic chemistry and eight in zoology. The
student who is interested in these programs should
consult the engineering department adviser at the earli-
est practicable date since certain departments expect
the student to begin work in these specialized areas early
in the undergraduate career.


SALES/INTERFACE ENGINEERING
CERTIFICATE PROGRAM
A program for undergraduate engineering students
providing academic background for career progression
in sales, managerial, and entrepreneurial pursuits. The
program is designed to broaden the scope of the engi-
neer so that he/she can more effectively communicate
with other professionals and have the business funda-
mentals necessary to promote new technologies and
technical products.
For additional information, students are encouraged
to contact Dr. David Shoup, 11 Rogers Hall, 392-1864.
To arrange to complete the Certificate in Sales/
Interface Engineering, students should contact their en-
gineering program departmental adviser or counselor.

Bachelor of Science (Nuclear Engineering Sciences)
The program is designed to be of interest to students
concerned with environmental issues. Electives can be
structured around an environmental theme, giving ex-
perience in an area that may expand careeropportunities.
Students electingto participate in the Environmental
Studies Minor Program would need to fulfill all college
and departmental requirements for their major degree
program and in Environmental Studies such that the
requirements for the minor program are satisfied. They
must take a minimum of 14 semester hours of environ-
mental courses, at least one from each of the biological,
physical and social sciences with a minimum of 6
semester hours in one.
The College of Engineering also offers a curriculum
leading to the Bachelor of Science in Engineering (Envi-
ronmental Engineering) administered bythe Department
of Environmental Engineering Sciences. Students fulfill-
ing the requirements for this degree would generally
satisfy all requirements for the Environmental Studies
Certificate. These students will be awarded the certifi-
cate if they choose to request one.
Students interested in the minor should check with
the Environmental Studies Office in 210 Bartram West
and register their intended course of study to insure that
the certificate will be received upon graduation.

UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA STUDENTS CLASSIFIED
UF
To be eligible for admission to the College of Fine
Arts students are expected to: 1) complete the lower
division curriculum required for the program they wish
to enter with a minimum average of C or higher (for Art
Education, Art History, and Music Education, a GPA of
2.5 is required); 2) earn passing grades in all required
preprofessional courses within those two years with a
minimum grade average of C. Admission to programs
restricting enrollment because of space limitations may
require that the student earn higher than 2.0 (C) average
minimum, and 3) obtain passing scores on the College
Level Academic Skills Test (see Index).
On occasion, departments will recommend that
certain students be admitted to the College prior to the
fulfillment of all lower division requirements. Students
should consult departmental academic advisers regard-
ing the appropriate time to initiate a change of college
request.
Minimum grades required in certain courses and
other special requirements (portfolio review and/or au-
dition) are required in some areas for admission to
various curricula in the College of Fine Arts. This informa-
tion may be obtained from the department or dean's
office.
TRANSFER STUDENTS
To be eligible for admission to the College of Fine
Arts, a transfer student must satisfy the minimum re-
quirementsforadmissionasspecified intheADMISSIONS
section of this catalog.
Students attending four-year colleges should take
courses similar to the lower division courses preparatory
for their intended program, as outlined in this catalog.
Students attending community colleges are advised
to plan their studies as follows:
Preparation for Curricula in Art: Where possible the
community college program should include two basic
design courses (which include color theory), two free-
hand drawing courses, and a year of art history. Courses
not offered at the community college will need to be
taken after transfer to the University.
Preparation for Curricula in Music.: The community
college program should include two years of music
theory, including ear training, sight singing, and key-
board harmony; two years of performance major study;
and two years of ensemble. The primary criterion for
admission to any music major program is proficiency in
music performance. Students are admitted to the pro-
gram following completion of a satisfactory in-person or
tape-recorded audition and completion of theory and
piano proficiency placement tests.
Preparation for Curricula in Theatre: Where possible
the community college program should include two
courses in acting, introduction to theatre, costume and
stage make-up, voice and stage movement, theatre
practice, and production and performance courses or
experiences. Courses not available at the community
college will be taken after transfer to the University.







FINE ARTS


Students are admitted to the program following comple-
tion of a satisfactory audition in Performance or a
portfolio review in Production.
PROVISIONAL ADMISSION
The professional programs of the College demand
that preprofessional coursework begin with the fresh-
man year. Realizing that some schools may not offer all
such courses, the College occasionally provides an op-
portunity for admissable students to remove these
deficiencies. Qualified transfer students who show high
potential but have not completed all preprofessional
prerequisites may be admitted provisionally based upon
space available. Due to limitations in space and faculty
all qualified students may not be admitted. Students
admitted provisionally will register for the courses neces-
saryto eliminate deficiencies in the shortesttime possible.
Unitl these deficiencies are removed they will be re-
quired to maintain a C (2.0) average to be eligible for
continued registration and must follow a specified pro-
gram.
ADVISEMENT
Students planning to major in any program of study
in the College of Fine Arts should consult the department
chair or adviser as soon as possible.
The advisement program of the College offers stu-
dents the services of faculty members highly qualified in
their professions. These faculty assist students in the
selection of a field of study offered in the College. They
also assist students with academic problems and provide
coordination and recommendations regarding the se-
lection of employment after graduation.
Staff of the College of Fine Arts also provide general
advisement to help clarify college requirements and
solve academic problems (Room 101, Fine Arts Building
A).
FINANCIAL AID
Students interested in part-time employment, assis-
tantships, fellowships, loans, prizes, and awards are

carry a normal load. A studentwho wishes to carry fewer
than 12 hours or more than 18 hours must get approval
from the departmental adviser and the dean at the time
of registration.
NORMAL ACADEMIC PROGRESS
Students maintain normal academic progress by
earning a minimum grade point of 2.0 (C) average for all
work attempted while classified in the College. That is,
the term "average" as used here refersto the average on
work attempted after the student is classified "FA" and
not the cumulative grade point average as established by
the University. Students are required to take courses in
the sequence as specified by the department chair or
adviser. Students may be excluded from a program of
study in the College if they fail or refuse to maintain
normal academic progress.
ADDING/DROPPING/WITHDRAWING
Courses may be added or dropped during the regu-
lar drop/add period without penalty. After the drop/add
period, courses may be dropped up to the date estab-


lished as the College deadline. All such drops are subject
to the following restrictions:
(1) Two free drops after the regular drop/add period will
be permitted for a student classified as 1 FA or 2FA.
Only one drop in any one semester is allowed, and
only two drops allowed within the two-year period.
Records of free drops will be maintained in the
dean's office; therefore, all drops must be processed
through that office.
(2) Students in upperdivision and classified as 3FA, 4FA,
6FA and OFA must petition to drop a course provided
they can document sufficient reasons to drop, usu-
ally for extenuating circumstances. All petitions are
subject to the approval of the College Petition Com-
mittee subsequent to a reccomendation by the
academic adviser. After one drop at the upper-
division level, normally petitionswill notbeapproved
except for documented hardship or medical rea-
sons. Overloads, change of major, or course not
needed to graduate do not constitute a hardship.

College as constituting a drop; the only procedure
for dropping a class is the proper processing of a
schedule change form which the student must ini-
tiate. This form is available in the dean's office.

ered a withdrawalfrom the University, must contact
the Office of Student Services, Criser Hall, and

waiver of the regulation invloved. Information on pro-
cedures for submitting such petitions is available in the
dean's office, Room 101, FAA.
