Using Your Undergraduate Catalog


This Undergraduate Catalog is organized into three main sections: The first section explains university administration as it relates to the student; the second section pre-
sents 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, require-
ments 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 descriptions 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 depart-
ments of instruction appears at the back of the catalog.

Flor

Institutional Purpose
The University of Florida is a public, land-
grant research university, one of the most com-
prehensive in the United States; it encompasses
virtually all academic and professional disci-
plines. It is the oldest and largest of Florida's
nine universities and a member of the American
Association of Universities. Its faculty and staff
are dedicated to the common pursuit of the uni-
versity's three-fold mission: education, research,
and service.
Education undergraduate and graduate
through the doctorate is the fundamental pur-
pose of the university. Research and scholarship
are integral to the education process and to
expanding humankind's understanding of the
natural world, the mind, and the senses. Service
is the university's obligation to share the benefits
of its knowledge for the public good.
These three interlocking elements span all of
the University of Florida's academic disciplines
and multidisciplinary centers and represent the
university's obligation to serve the needs of Flori-
da's citizens and the nation by pursuing and dis-
seminating new knowledge while building upon
the past. Every dimension of the university
bespeaks its commitment to a culturally and inter-
nationally diverse intellectual environment in
which teaching, research, and service are fully
integrated with its interdisciplinary pursuits to
meet the changing needs of the global community.
The University of Florida is committed to
providing the knowledge, benefits, and services
it produces with quality and effectiveness. It
aspires to further national and international
recognition for its initiatives and achievements
in promoting human values and improving the
quality of life.

The University of Florida:
Mission and Goals
The University of Florida belongs to an
ancient tradition of great universities. We partic-
ipate in an elaborate conversation among schol-
ars and students that extends over space and
time linking the experiences of Western Europe
with the traditions and histories of all cultures,
that explores the limits of the physical and bio-
logical universes, and that nurtures and prepares
generations of educated people to address the
problems of our societies. While the University
of Florida recognizes no limits on its intellectual
boundaries, and our faculty and students remain
free to explore wherever the mind and the imag-
ination lead, we live in a real world whose con-
straints limit what we can do. Out of the conflict
between our universal intellectual aspirations
and the limitations of our environment comes
the definition of the university's goals.
EDUCATION
American colleges and universities share the
fundamental educational mission of teaching
students. The undergraduate experience, based

undergraduate education to include advanced or
graduate study leading to the Ph.D. Most Ameri-
can universities also include a variety of under-
graduate and graduate professional programs,
master's degree programs, and the like. The Uni-
versity of Florida shares these traditions. As an
American university, we have a major commit-
ment to undergraduate education as the founda-
tion of our academic organization and we pursue
graduate education for the Ph.D. as well as many
other graduate degrees in professional fields.
We are, in addition, a major public, compre-
hensive, land-grant, research university. Each of
these adjectives defines one of our characteris-
tics, and through frequent repetition, this
description takes on the style of a ritual incanta-
tion: rhythmic, reverent, and infrequently exam-
ined. What, then, does each of these key words
mean?
MAJOR
Here, at the head of the list, we find one of
our most important aspirations. We will be, we
must be, and we are a major university. We
define ourselves in comparison with the best
universities we can find. We need not be the
absolutely unambiguously best, but we must be
among the best universities in the world. Exact
ranking of the best universities is a meaningless
exercise, but most of us can name 60 great uni-
versities. By whatever indicator of quality we
choose, our university should fall into this
group. If we define a group of universities who
share our adjectives (major, public, comprehen-
sive), major need not be very precise. What mat-
ters is not the precision of the measuring scale
but the inclusion of our university in the group.
PUBLIC
We exist thanks to the commitment and
investment of the people of the State of Florida.

COMPREHENSIVE
This adjective recognizes the universal reach
of our pursuit of knowledge. As a matter of prin-
ciple, we exclude no field from our purview. We
believe that our approach to knowledge and
learning, to understanding and wisdom,
requires us to be ready to examine any field, cul-
tivate any discipline, and explore any topic that
offers insight or intellectual tools. Resource lim-
its, human or financial, may constrain us from
cultivating one or another academic subspecial-
ty, but we accept, in principle, no limit on our
field of view. Even when we struggle with bud-
get problems and must reduce a program or
miss an intellectual opportunity, we do so only
to meet the practical constraints of our current
environment. We never relinquish the commit-
ment to the holistic pursuit of knowledge.
LAND-GRANT
Florida belongs to the set of American uni-
versities whose mandate includes a commitment
to the development and transmission of practical
knowledge. As one of the land-grant universities
identified by the Morrill Act of 1862, the Univer-
sity of Florida has a special focus on agriculture
and engineering and a mandate to deliver the
practical benefits of university knowledge to
every county in the state. In our university, the
Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences and
the College of Engineering respond to this defi-
nition most obviously, but over time, the entire
university has to come to recognize its commit-
ment to translating the benefit of abstract and
theoretical knowledge into the marketplace,
where it can sustain the economic growth that
supports us all.
This commitment permeates the institutional
culture and defines us as one of some 72 such
institutions in America. The land-grant universi-
ty is, of course, a peculiarly American invention
and captures one of the powerful cultural beliefs






GENERAL INFORMATION

of our country: that knowledge passes the test of
quality by remaining vitally connected to indus-
try and commerce.
RESEARCH
Research defines a certain type of university.
Our faculty must dedicate themselves not only
to the bedrock function of education, not only to
the land-grant function of service, but equally to
the essential activity of research.
By research we mean the effort to expand our
understanding of the natural world, the world of
the mind, and the world of the senses. We define
research to include the theoretical abstractions of
the mathematician, the experimental discoveries
of the geneticist, the insights of the semiotician,
the re-creations of the historian, or the analysis
of the anthropologist. We define research to cap-
ture the business professor's analysis of econom-
ic organization, the architect's design, and the
musician's interpretation or the artist's special
vision. Research by agronomists improves crops,
and research by engineers enhances materials.
Medical and clinical research cures and prevents
disease. The list of research fields continues as
endlessly as the intellectual concerns of our fac-
ulty and the academic vision of our colleges.
University research, whatever the field, must
be published. The musician who never performs,
the scientist whose work never appears for
review by colleagues, the historian whose note
cards never become a book may have accom-
plished much, but their accomplishments remain
incomplete. When we say research, we mean
research and creative activity that contribute to
the international public conversation about the
advancement of knowledge.

The University of Florida remains committed
to delivering this mission with quality and effec-
tiveness on behalf of the citizens of the State of
Florida and in support of the continued
enhancement of their quality of life.

History
Florida's oldest and largest university, the
University of Florida traces its beginnings to
1853 when the state-funded East Florida Semi-
nary acquired the private Kingsbury Academy
in Ocala. After the Civil War, the seminary was
moved to Gainesville. It was consolidated with
the state's land-grant Florida Agricultural Col-
lege, then in Lake City, to become the University
of Florida in 1906. Until 1947, UF enrolled men
only and was 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 uni-
versities in the nation.

Government of the University
Direct supervision over the University of
Florida, its policies, and affairs is vested in the
Board of Regents, a body composed of 12 citi-
zens who are appointed by the governor for six-
year terms, one student appointed for one year,


and the State Commissioner of Education. Uni-
versity affairs are administered by the president
with the advice and assistance of the university
administration, the University Senate, and vari-
ous committees elected by the Senate and
appointed by the president.

Students
University of Florida students-numbering
more than 35,000 in fall 1991--come from more
than 100 countries (1,872 foreign students), all 50
states, and every one of the 67 counties in Flori-
da. The ratio of men to women is 54-46. Thirty-
three percent are freshmen and sophomores and
43 percent, juniors and seniors. More than 6,100,
or 17 percent, of the student body are graduate
students, and 2,175, or 7 percent, are in the pro-
fessional programs of medicine, dentistry, vet-
erinary medicine, and law.
Approximately 2,000 black students and
2,000 Hispanic students attend UF. Ninety per-
cent of entering freshmen rank above the nation-
al mean of scores on standard entrance exams
taken by college-bound students. In 1991, UF
ranked 4th in the nation among public universi-
ties in the number of new National Merit and
Achievement Scholars in attendance.

Faculty
A distinguished faculty of more than 3,900
attracted more than $235 million in research and
training grants in 1991-92. More than 1,800 were
grant awardees, and 70 percent of the faculty's
grant proposals were successful. UF now has 55
eminent scholar chairs, more than all of the other
state universities combined. Nearly two dozen
faculty members have been selected to the
National Academies of Science and/or Engineer-
ing, the Institute of Medicine or a counterpart in
a foreign nation.
A very small sampling of honored faculty
includes: a Nobel Laureate, Pulitzer Prize win-
ners in editorial writing and poetry, co-inventor
of the jet engine, one of the four charter mem-
bers 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 Associ-
ation of American Universities, the nation's most
prestigious higher education organization. The
University of Florida is accredited by the South-
ern Association of Colleges and Schools-Com-
mission on Colleges to award the degrees of
bachelor, master, specialist and engineer, as well
as doctoral and professional degrees. UF is one
of the nation's top three universities offering
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 master's
and 76 doctoral programs in 87 of the 137 UF
academic departments. Professional post-bac-
calaureate degrees are offered in law, dentistry,
medicine, and veterinary medicine.
During the last year, more than 32,000 people
took advantage of the many university-spon-
sored opportunities made available through the
Division of Continuing Education. More than
25,000 people participated in non-credit confer-
ences, workshops, institutes, and seminars. And
more than 7,500 students enrolled in Indepen-
dent 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 stu-
dent may enter in any term and proceed normal-
ly 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 build-
ings, 142 of them equipped with classrooms and
laboratories. Facilities are valued at more than
$550 million. Notable among these are the Uni-
versity 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 aca-
demic 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 near 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 museums in the Southeast.
The Center for the Performing Arts, which
opened in January 1992, attracts world-class
symphony orchestras, Broadway plays, opera,
and large-scale ballet productions to Gainesville.
The Stephen C. O'Connell Center and the J.
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 use the student union daily 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 sanc-
tuary 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,
ranking 5th in the USA Today combined men's
and women's sport programs for 1991-92.
An estimated 90 percent of all students take
part in some form of organized or informal
recreation. There are 72 courts and outdoor play-
ing 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 cam-
pus is also located near many recreational lakes
and rivers, including university-owned Lake
Wauburg, and the Gulf and Atlantic beaches,
which 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 experience. Individual stu-
dents, faculty, and staff members, as well as the
university's formal organizations must assume
responsibility for these qualities. The concern 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 administration 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 stan-
dards. Moreover, the concern for values goes
well beyond the observance of rules.
A university is a place where self-expression,
voicing disagreement, and challenging outmod-
ed 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, facul-
ty, staff, and administration, are expected to pro-
vide encouragement and leadership as well as
example.
While the university seeks to educate and
encourage, it also has a responsibility to restrict


any behavior that adversely affects others or is
contrary to the pursuit of knowledge. The pur-
pose of this Standard of Ethical Conduct is to
summarize what is expected of the members of
the university community. Existing university
documents address these concerns in greater
detail.
ACADEMIC HONESTY
The University of Florida requires all mem-
bers 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 Stu-
dent Honor Code, as part of the registration pro-
cess. 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 environment
affects other students adversely, from the skew-
ing of the grading curve to giving unfair advan-
tage for honors or for professional or graduate
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.
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, stu-
dents should report any condition that facili-
tates dishonesty to the class instructor, the
department chair, the dean of the college, or
the Student Honor Court.
Faculty Responsibility. Faculty members
have a duty to promote honest behavior and
to avoid practices and environments that fos-
ter cheating in their classes. Teachers should
encourage students to bring negative condi-
tions or incidents of dishonesty to their atten-
tion. In their own work, teachers should
practice the same high standards they expect
from their students.
Administration Responsibility. As highly
visible members of our academic communi-
ty, administrators should be ever vigilant to
promote academic honesty and conduct their
lives in an ethically exemplary manner.
ALCOHOL AND DRUGS
The use of alcohol and other drugs can have
a negative impact on judgments and reaction,
health and safety, and may lead to legal compli-
cations as well.
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 compro-
mised, it will take disciplinary action against


GENERAL INFORMATION


organizations violating rules regarding alco-
hol and against individuals violating either
the law or reasonable conduct in the use of
alcohol. It must also provide help for stu-
dents who are alcohol-dependent. The uni-
versity will deal severely with students
convicted of the illegal possession, use, or
sale of drugs.
What the University Community Can Do
to Prevent Alcohol Abuse and Drug Use.
Students can help control substance abuse by
declining to use or condone the use of drugs
and by insisting that organizations and indi-
viduals use alcohol within the law and with-
in the bounds of reasonable conduct.
Students should make an effort to prevent
persons who have abused alcohol or used
drugs from harming themselves or others,
especially in driving a motor vehicle, and
should encourage those needing professional
help to seek it. The same standards and reg-
ulations apply with equal force to members
of the faculty, staff, and administration.

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, religious, racial, and cultural. Indeed,
genuine appreciation for individual differences
and cultural diversity is essential to the environ-
ment of learning.
Another major aspect of university life
involves sexual relationships. Sexual attitudes
or actions which are intimidating, harassing,
coercive, or abusive, or that invade the right to
privacy of the individual, are not acceptable.
Organizations or individuals that adversely
upset the delicate balance of communal living
will be subject to disciplinary action by the uni-
versity. Only in an atmosphere of equality and
respect can all members of the university com-
munity grow.
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 experience in helping individuals and
the community, students can put into practice
the values they learn in the classroom.
Education at the University of Florida is not
an ethically neutral experience. The entire uni-
versity community should dedicate itself to real-
izing the vision that a center of learning is a
beacon that, by directing itself to the highest val-
ues, guides and encourages society to do the
same.

catalog, refer to the key on the inside front
cover.

Applications For Admission
Application for admission to any undergrad-
uate 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. It is quite
proper to correspond with deans, directors, or
department chairs, but such contact with uni-
versity officers does not in any way eliminate
the necessity for filing a formal application in
the Office of the University Registrar by the
dates specified.
How to Apply: An applicant should address
a request to Admissions, Office of the Universi-
ty 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. The
applicant should indicate that forms are
requested for admission as a freshman, under-
graduate transfer, postbaccalaureate, graduate,
dental, law, medical, or veterinary medicine
student.
IMPORTANT NOTE: An application for
admission must be filed for the specific term
that the student wishes to enter the university
and will be considered for entrance in that term
ONLY. Applicants wishing to change their
planned entry date should contact the Office of
Admissions for application instructions. An
approval for admission is valid ONLY for
entrance in the term specified in the admission
notice and does not in any way imply that
approval also would be given for entrance in
any other term.

General Statement
The university encourages applications from
qualified applicants of both sexes from all cul-
tural, racial, religious, and ethnic groups. The
university is committed to non-discrimination
with respect to race, creed, color, religion, age,
disability, sex, marital status, national origin,
political opinions or affiliations, and veteran sta-
tus in the administration of education policies,
admissions policies, financial aid, employment,
or in any program or activity.
The University of Florida Title IX coordina-
tor is Jacquelyn D. Hart, 352 Tigert Hall, (904)
392-6004. The university, when appropriate,
provides substitution of courses upon request
for disabled individuals. Both the Educational
Testing Service (SAT) and the American College
Testing Program (ACT) have brochures describ-
ing special testing arrangements for disabled
applicants, and there are alternative admissions
procedures for disabled applicants who are
unable to take the required tests.
A brief summary of the general require-
ments for admission or readmission to any col-
lege or division of the university is given below:


A satisfactory academic record. Each appli-
cant must furnish a complete chronological
record of educational institutions previously
attended. Official transcripts must be sub-
mitted in accordance with instructions
which accompany the application form. Fail-
ure to declare attendance at another institu-
tion could cause invalidation of admission
and any credits or degrees earned.
Satisfactory scores on achievement tests or
aptitude tests as noted in the application
instructions.
A satisfactory conduct record.
All international students whose native
language is not English must submit TOEFL
(Test of English as a Foreign Language)
scores, except for those undergraduate
applicants with less than junior status, in
addition to other required test scores.
NOTE: Board of Regents regulations pro-
vide that furnishing false or fraudulent state-
ments 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
degrees earned.
The specific requirements for admission to
the University of Florida for the first time as a
freshman, undergraduate transfer, postbac-
calaureate, graduate, dental, law, medical, or
veterinary medicine student may be found in
the appropriate sections which follow.
The specific requirements for readmission (at
the same or a different level) of a student previ-
ously enrolled at the University of Florida also
may be found in the appropriate sections which
follow.
It should be understood, however, that mini-
mum requirements are given and that admission
to the university is a selective process. The satis-
faction of minimum requirements does not auto-
matically guarantee admission. Under Board of
Regents policy, a limited number of students
may be admitted as exceptions to the minimum
requirements. The University Admissions Com-
mittee is the agency at the University of Florida
that is responsible for the admission of under-
graduate students under this exception policy.
Any student who is conditionally admitted
to the University of Florida may enroll subject
to verification that the conditions of admission
have been satisfied. Receipt of final official cre-
dentials for a student which fail to confirm that
the conditions for admission have been met will
result in revocation of admission, reclassifica-
tion to nondegree status, and denial of contin-
ued enrollment.
Minimum requirements evolved from stud-
ies of student performance at the University of
Florida. These studies identified primary factors
which indicate a reasonable chance for success-
ful completion of an academic degree at the
University of Florida.
The University Admissions Committee is
responsible for administering all admissions to
the university, including applicants approved as
exceptions to the minimum admission require-
ments.


Students who plan to enter the University of
Florida for the first time will be considered for
admission as follows.
Beginning Freshmen: Students who have
never attended college or who have earned
fewer than 12 semester hours following
graduation from high school. (See following
section, Admission as a Freshman)

Undergraduate Transfers: Students who have
previously attended any college or universi-
ty and who have earned at least 12 semester
hours following graduation from high
school, but who have not received a
bachelor's degree. (See following section,
Admission as a Transfer Student to Under-
graduate Colleges and Schools)

Postbaccalaureate Students: Students who
have received a bachelor's degree but who
do not wish to be admitted to graduate
study. (See following section, Admission as
a Postbaccalaureate Student)

tions for tuition.purposes, refer to the residency
page in this catalog.

Traveling Scholar Program
The Traveling Scholar Program affords grad-
uate students at State University System institu-
tions an opportunity to take course work or
conduct research activities at any of the other
institutions in the system. Course work 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 participate in






ADMISSIONS


it, students must apply to the dean of the gradu-
ate school of their home campus.

Undergraduate Interinstitutional
Registration Program
The Undergraduate Interinstitutional Regis-
tration Program enables students at State Uni-
versity 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 col-
lections. Course work taken under the
Undergraduate Interinstitutional Registration
Program will be accepted for credit at the stu-
dent's home institution. Students must be rec-
ommended 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 immuniza-
tion for the two shot measles requirement and
the one shot rubella requirement. When the
application for admission is approved, a form to
complete and return will be forwarded to the
student. No student will be allowed to register
until the Office of Admissions has received
the form and it has been forwarded to and
approved by the University Student Health
Service.

Admission as a Freshman
Applicants who have never attended college -
Please note: Students who have enrolled as
early admits at other postsecondary institutions
are not considered freshmen at the University of
Florida and must apply to the university as
transfer students.

When to Apply: The best time to apply is
the early part of the senior year in secondary
school. Fall term priority will be provided to
qualified applicants whose applications and
supporting records are received in the Office of
Admissions prior to January 31. Applications
for the fall class received February 1 and after
will be considered on a space-available basis
only. The deadlines for receipt of applications
for other terms are listed in the university calen-
dar.
Admission of students is selective. Because
of the availability of community colleges and
other state universities in Florida, the Board of
Regents has instructed the University of Florida
to limit the number of entering freshmen. Stu-
dents may apply for admission to upper divi-
sion and professional schools of the university
after attending community colleges or other
universities and by transferring to the universi-
ty's upper division colleges in accordance with
admissions standards.


The requirements for admission set forth
below give priority to those applicants whose
record indicates the greatest likelihood of suc-
cess in the lower division program at the Uni-
versity of Florida.

University of Florida at each collegiate insti-
tution attended.
Please note: Applicants who present scores
on the G.E.D. (General Equivalency Diploma)
for satisfaction of the high school graduation
requirement must also present records from sec-


ondary schools attended and test scores to be
considered for admission. The applicant's over-
all academic background will be considered.
Any Florida student who meets the above
minimum admission requirements and who is
interested in attending the University of Florida
is urged to submit an application. The universi-
ty will do everything possible to accept all qual-
ified applicants who apply before the
application deadline. If the number of qualified
applicants exceeds the number that the universi-
ty is permitted to enroll, admission will be selec-
tive. An applicant's total high school record
including grades, test scores, educational objec-
tive and pattern of courses completed, rank in
class, school recommendation, and personal
background and record will be considered.
Composite pictures of the Scholastic Apti-
tude Test (SAT) results of recent freshman class-
es 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 will assure
admission or success in college, prospective
applicants are urged to discuss these data with
their school counselors before applying to the
University of Florida.

Requirements for Admission -
Non-Florida Residents
Because of the limited number of entering
freshmen in the fall class, only a small number
of highly qualified students from states other
than Florida may be admitted.

Other Information for Prospective
Freshman Applicants

Early Admission
Applications for early admission (i.e., admis-
sion following completion of the junior year of
high school) from superior students are encour-
aged and will be considered on an individual
basis by the university's Admissions Commit-
tee. Applications should be submitted in accor-
dance with deadlines published in the
university calendar.
In addition to the application, the following
items are needed:
A written statement by the student setting
forth reasons for requesting early admission.
An official transcript of the applicant's sec-
ondary school record covering 9th, 10th, and
11th years. Generally, an overall academic
average of B+ is expected.
Results of either the Scholastic Aptitude
Test (SAT) or the American College Test
(ACT). Generally a score of approximately
600 on each section of the SAT or a compos-
ite score of 28 on the ACT is expected.
A letter of recommendation from the stu-
dent's high school principal or guidance






ADMISSIONS


counselor. The letter should give specific
reasons why the applicant would profit
more from early admission than by comple-
tion of the senior year of high school.

An applicant for early admission may be
required to interview with members of the
Admissions Committee before an application
decision is made. The Office of Admissions will
advise the applicant if interviews are required.
IMPORTANT: Please note that an applicant
should NOT report for an interview until noti-
fied by the Office of Admissions.
Eligible early admission students from Flori-
da high schools may be funded through Dual
Credit Enrollment.
The University of Florida provides numer-
ous opportunities other than early admission to
accelerate graduation. For additional informa-
tion, please refer to the Time Shortened Degree
Opportunities section of this catalog.
Advance Housing Payment. Entering fresh-
men are required to make a housing deposit
within 30 days of acceptance if they desire to
live in university housing. The housing deposit,
less a $20.00 service charge, is refundable until
May 1st for applicants accepted for admission to
the fall freshman class.
Admission with Advanced Standing. The
University of Florida is a participant in the
Advanced Placement (AP) program and the
College Level Examination Program (CLEP) of
the College Entrance Examination Board and
the International Baccalaureate (IB) program.
Under the Advanced Placement 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.
Depending on the results of the examination,
the student may receive university credit for
courses covering similar material or exemption
from such courses without credit.
Admission Offers with Outstanding Cre-
dentials. Offers of admission with course work
currently in progress are tentative offers, pend-
ing review of final outstanding transcripts.
Admission offers are subject to cancellation if
final course work does not meet admission
requirements.

Admission as a Transfer Student to
Undergraduate Schools and
Colleges
Applicants who have attended any college
or university, who have earned at least 12
semester hours of credit following graduation
from high school or attended another postsec-
ondary institution through nearly admission
program, are considered transfer students.

When to Apply: Applications may be sub-
mitted up to one year in advance, and appli-
cants are urged to apply at least six months
prior to the term they plan to enter. Applicants
should refer to the application deadlines section
of the university calendar and consult the indi-
vidual college to which they intend to apply for
specific program information. (NOTE: In a num-


ber of undergraduate programs, the sequence of
professional courses begins ONLY in the fall
term of the junior year.) An applicant who
delays filing an application may find it impossi-
ble to furnish the necessary supporting records
in time to permit an admission decision for the
term desired.
This section lists the general admission
requirements for transfer students. It should be
noted, however, that admission to the universi-
ty is selective and satisfaction of these general
requirements does not guarantee acceptance.
Upper division colleges of the university have
established enrollment quotas because of enroll-
ment limitations. Upper division transfer appli-
cants who meet the minimum admission
requirements will be referred to the selection
committee of the appropriate college for enroll-
ment consideration.
A transfer applicant should refer to the gen-
eral information and colleges sections of this
catalog for an explanation of the academic orga-
nization of the university. (See the Table of Con-
tents.)

Transfer Credit Policy
Credit hours for work completed at a com-
munity college after the student has earned a
total of 64 semester hours (or 96 quarter hours)
of acceptable transfer credit at all institutions
attended will not be accepted for transfer credit
at the University of Florida. The courses repre-
sented 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 required in the upper division at
the University of Florida to earn a degree. Fail-
ure to declare attendance at another institution
can invalidate admission to the University of
Florida and any credits or degrees earned.
Courses completed with grades of D or high-
er at other regionally accredited institutions
which reasonably parallel the curriculum at the
University of Florida will be accepted for trans-
fer credit as hours earned. It is the prerogative
of the student's upper division college to deter-
mine how transfer credit satisfies the specific
degree's course requirements, and in some
cases, colleges require grades of C or higher in
some courses.
University of Florida degree-seeking stu-
dents must secure the approval of the dean of
their college prior to enrolling as a nondegree or
transient student at another institution. Tran-
sient student forms to be used for pre-approval
of transfer credit within the State University
System of Florida (SUS) are available from the
Office of the University Registrar in Criser Hall.

Florida Public Community College Graduates
This section applies ONLY to new students seek-
ing to transfer directly from a Florida public commu-
nity college with the Associate of Arts degree in a
university parallel program. All other community
college applicants, undergraduate transfer applicants
from four-year colleges and universities and appli-


cants for readmission, should consult the appropriate
sections which follow.

The University of Florida subscribes to the
articulation agreement between the state univer-
sities and public community colleges of Florida.
Under this agreement, any graduate of a state-
approved Florida public community college is
eligible for admission to 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:
At least 60 semester hours of academic
work exclusive of occupational courses;
An approved general education program
of at least 36 semester hours;
A grade point average of at least 2.0 on a
4.0 system on all college level academic
courses.
All applicants must have completed two
sequential courses of foreign language in
secondary school or the equivalent of 8-10
semester hours at the postsecondary level.
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 Office of
Admissions as soon as possible after submit-
ting an application for admission. Some col-
leges 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 Col-
lege Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST) to
be admitted in a degree-seeking status.
Within space and fiscal limitations, appli-
cants 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 addition-
al preprofessional courses not completed at the
junior college. However, such courses will not
reduce the number of credits required in the
upper division for a degree.

Other Transfer Applicants
This section applies to students seeking to trans-
fer from a Florida public community college without
an Associate of Arts degree in a university parallel
program and to all undergraduate transfer appli-
cants from other colleges or universities.

Requirements for Admission to Lower
Division
Eligible for admission as a beginning fresh-
man: An applicant must have been eligible
for admission to the University of Florida as






ADMISSIONS


a beginning freshman to be considered for
admission to the lower division as a transfer
student. The number of spaces available for
lower division transfers is extremely limited.
Students are encouraged to remain at their
Florida community college until completion
of the Associate of Arts degree or to transfer
to a Florida community college to complete
the AA degree. (See section, Admission as a
Freshman.)

Good standing: An applicant must be in
good standing and eligible to return to any
institution previously attended. A student
who for any reason will not be allowed to
return to an institution previously attended
cannot be considered for admission to the
University of Florida.

Satisfactory record: An applicant must
have an average of C or higher (as computed
by the University of Florida) on all work
attempted at each institution previously
attended. No application can be considered
until complete official transcripts of all the
applicant's undergraduate work are in the
possession of the Office of Admissions.
An official transcript must be furnished from
each institution attended regardless of
length of attendance or credit earned. Offi-
cial 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 institu-
tions must reasonably parallel the curricu-
lum at the University of Florida.

Satisfactory conduct record: An applicant
must present a satisfactory conduct record.
Regardless of other qualifications, an appli-
cant who has experienced serious or contin-
uing difficulty with school or other
authorities because of improper conduct
may find his or her application disapproved.

Requirements for Admission to an Upper
Division College
With the exception of beginning freshman
eligibility, an applicant for admission to an
upper division college must satisfy the require-
ments listed above for admission to the lower
division. By law, all applicants seeking admis-
sion 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 Office
of Admissions as soon as possible after submit-
ting an application for admission. Some colleges
with enrollment quotas may require applicants
to submit test scores as a part of their selection
process. When test scores are required by an
upper division college, the applicant will be
advised directly by that college. In addition, the
following requirements also must be satisfied:


Advanced standing credit: An applicant
must present a minimum of 60 semester
hours (or 90 quarter hours) of acceptable col-
lege courses, not more than four semester
hours of which are in military science
and/or basic required physical education, as
credit for advanced standing.
Specific course requirements: An applicant
must present the courses listed as required
for admission by the upper division college
of his or her choice, or acceptable substi-
tutes, as part of the courses offered for
advanced standing credit. (See appropriate
college section of this catalog.) Upon recom-
mendation 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 admission are met; howev-
er, such lower division courses will not
reduce the number of credits required in the
upper division for a degree.
College Level Academic Skills Test
(CLAST): By law, all applicants admitted in
a degree-seeking status to an upper division
college at an institution in the State Universi-
ty System of Florida who have had the
opportunity to take the test, MUST have sat-
isfactorily completed it. Students transfer-
ring to upper division programs from
private colleges in Florida or from out-of-
state colleges who have not had the opportu-
nity to take the test, MUST pass the test by
the end of the next term in which it is avail-
able to them.
All applicants must have completed two
sequential courses of foreign language in
secondary school or the equivalent of 8-10
semester hours at the postsecondary level.

Admission as a Postbaccalaureate
Student

When to Apply: Applications may be sub-
mitted up to one year in advance and applicants
are urged to apply as early as possible. Applica-
tions MUST BE SUBMITTED by the DEADLINE
established for the term. Some departments
have found it necessary to establish deadlines
for the receipt of applications and their support-
ing records that are earlier than the deadlines
established for the university and published in
the catalog. All applicants are advised to refer to
the application deadlines section of the universi-
ty calendar published in this catalog and to
check with the appropriate department regard-
ing departmental deadlines.
Postbaccalaureate students may wish to
enroll in courses for any of the following rea-
sons:
To earn teacher certification;
To expand their academic background;
To complete prerequisite courses for
admission to graduate or professional study
at some future date.
To earn a second bachelor's degree.

minimum grade average of B for all upper divi-
sion undergraduate work and acceptable scores
on the verbal, quantitative, and analytical sec-
tions of the Graduate Record Examination
(GRE). For some colleges and departments, and
in more advanced levels of graduate study, an
undergraduate average or GRE 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






ADMISSIONS
.....T


the department and approved by the college
and the dean of the Graduate School.
Unqualified admission to the Graduate
School is dependent upon the presentation of a
baccalaureate degree from an accredited college
or university. No application will be considered
unless the complete official transcript of all the
applicant's undergraduate and graduate work is
in the possession of the registrar, and no tran-
script will be accepted as official unless it is
received directly from the registrar of the insti-
tution in which the work was done. Official sup-
plementary transcripts are required as soon as
they are available for any work completed after
application for admission has been made. In
general, no student who is a graduate of a
nonaccredited institution will be considered for
graduate study in any college or department of
the university.
The Board of Regents also has ruled that in
admitting students for a given academic year,
up to ten percent may be admitted as excep-
tions. Students admitted as exceptions under
the ten percent waiver rule must present both
an upper division grade point average and GRE
score with their application and meet other cri-
teria required by the university, including let-
ters of recommendation from colleagues,
satisfactory performance in a specified number
of graduate courses taken as postbaccalaureate
students, or practical experience in the disci-
pline for a specified period of time.
The university encourages applications from
qualified applicants of both sexes from all cul-
tural, racial, religious, and ethnic groups. The
university does not discriminate on the basis of
race, creed, color, religion, age, disability, sex,
marital status, national origin, political opinions
or affiliations, and veteran status. The universi-
ty, when appropriate, provides substitution of
courses for handicapped individuals upon
request.

Admissions Examinations
Graduate Record Examination. In addi-
tion to the GRE which is required of all appli-
cants, some departments encourage the
applicant to submit scores on one or more
advanced subject tests of the GRE. The scores on
all tests taken will be considered.
Graduate Study in Business Administra-
tion. Students applying for admission to the
Graduate School for study in the College of
Business Administration or Fisher School of
Accounting may substitute satisfactory scores
on the Graduate Management Admission Test
(GMAT) for the GRE. Students applying for
admission to the Master of Business Adminis-
tration (MBA) program must submit satisfacto-
ry scores on the GMAT. Applicants are
requested to contact the Educational Testing
Service, Princeton, New Jersey, for additional
information.
Graduate Study in Law. Students apply-
ing to the graduate program leading to the
degree Master of Laws in Taxation must submit
satisfactory scores on the Law School Admis-
sions Test (LSAT).


Conditional Admission
Students who are not eligible for direct
admission may be granted conditional admis-
sion to the Graduate School. Students may be
granted conditional admission to defer final
admission decisions until requisite examination
scores or final grade records are available. Stu-
dents may also be granted conditional admis-
sion to ascertain their ability to pursue graduate
work at the University of Florida if previous
grade records or GRE scores are on the border-
line of acceptability or when specific prerequi-
site courses are required.
Students granted conditional admission
should be notified by the department of the con-
ditions under which they are admitted. When
these conditions have been satisfied, the depart-
ment must notify the student in writing, send-
ing a copy to the Graduate School. Eligible
course work 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 registra-
tion.

International Students
All international students seeking admission
to the Graduate School are required to submit
satisfactory scores on the GRE and on the
TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language)
with the following exceptions:
International students whose native tongue
is English or who have studied at a United
States college or university for one year or
more do not need to submit TOEFL scores
but they must submit satisfactory scores on
the GRE before their application for admis-
sion can be considered.
Students educated in countries other than
the United States where the GRE is not avail-
able who apply for admission while residing
outside the United States may be granted, at
the discretion of the department, a one
semester postponement of the GRE but not
the TOEFL.
Permission to register for subsequent
semesters will depend upon the submission
of scores on the GRE.
All international students applying for
admission to the Master of Business Admin-
istration program must submit satisfactory
scores from the GMAT before their applica-
tion for admission will be considered.
International students are required to hold
health and accident insurance as a condition
of enrollment. Such insurance must be
payable in U.S. dollars and should not be
limited in use to a particular hospital, clinic,
agency, or institution delivering health care.
Failure to comply may result in cancellation
of registration.
International students, whose scores on the
TOEFL and verbal portion of the GRE are not
indicative of adequate writing skills, are
required to write a short essay for examination.
If the skills demonstrated in the essay are not


acceptable for pursuing graduate work, the
examination will be used as a diagnostic tool for
placement in appropriate courses which will not
count toward a graduate degree.
Graduate students whose native language is
not English may be asked to submit satisfactory
scores on the Test of Spoken English (TSE) to be
eligible for teaching assistantships.
Applicants are requested to write the Educa-
tiona Testing Service, Princeton, New Jersey,
for registration forms and other information
concerning TOEFL, TSE, GMAT, and GRE.

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 Admis-
sions, College of Dentistry, University of Flori-
da, Gainesville, Florida, 32611. The.request card
should be sent directly to the AADSAS, 1625
Massachusetts Avenue Northwest, Suite 101,
Washington, D.C. 20036. Upon receiving the
application materials from the AADSAS, the
completed forms and supporting documents
must be returned directly to the AADSAS no
later than October 15 of the year prior to antici-
pated enrollment in dental school. Failure to
meet this deadline will prevent the Dental
Admissions Committee from evaluating your
record.
The data compiled by the AADSAS will be
carefully evaluated by the Dental Admissions
Committee and promising applicants will be
sent formal application forms which request
additional information. The submission of a pre-
professional committee evaluation or letters of
recommendation from people in academics will
not be necessary until the formal application
forms are filed. The formal application forms
and supporting materials must be submitted as
requested by the College of Dentistry.
The College of Dentistry aspires to attract
students of the highest caliber into its various
programs. High standards of scholastic achieve-
ment, moral character, and motivation are
expected of the applicant. The student of den-
tistry must possess a high basic aptitude supple-
mented by an academic preparation of the
highest order because of the vast area of science
which must be mastered by the dentist. The
highly personal relationship between patient
and dentist places the latter in a position of
trust, which demands maturity, integrity, intel-
lectual honesty, and a sense of responsibility. A
broad representation of the ethnic mixture of
the state is sought in the student body through
an active recruitment program. The college
strictly adheres to the principle of ethnic, racial,
religious, and social equality among its student
body and faculty.
Generally, students applying for admission
should plan to complete the requirements for a
bachelor's degree. However, qualified students
may be accepted without fulfilling the degree
requirements, provided they show evidence of
sufficient preparation for the study of dentistry.
Applicants with an overall B average as a mini-






ADMISSIONS
T


mum will receive strongest consideration for
admission to the College of Dentistry.
All applicants must take the Dental Admis-
sion Test, preferably in the spring preceding the
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 test-
ing centers. Following a review of all applica-
tion materials and Dental Admission Test scores
by the Dental Admissions Committee, inter-
views with members of this committee will be
arranged for competitive applicants.
(See a more detailed description in the Col-
lege of Dentistry bulletin.)

Admission to the College of Law
When to Apply: Applications can be accept-
ed as indicated in the College of Law catalog.
Beginning Students: All applicants for
admission to the College of Law must have
received a baccalaureate degree from a regional-
ly accredited college or university and achieved
a satisfactory score on the Law School Admis-
sion Test.
The minimum acceptable score on the Law
School Admission Test required for admission
varies with the total grade point average
achieved by the applicant on all college work
attempted by the applicant prior to receipt of
the first bachelor's degree. The lower the grade
point average, the higher the Law School
Admission Test score must be to qualify for
admission. All applicants (including present
and former University of Florida students) must
register with the Law School Data Assembly
Service (LSDAS) in lieu of requesting transcripts
from each institution of higher education
attended. For more detailed information on
admission to the College of Law, please see the
College of Law catalog.
Advanced Standing Students: For informa-
tion on admission to the College of Law with
advanced standing, see the College of Law
catalog.

Admission to the College of
Medicine
When to Apply: Because the number of
places in the first year class of the College of
Medicine is limited, it is important that candi-
dates make application as early as possible dur-
ing the summer or fall of the year preceding
their intended date of entry.
Personal qualities of high order-character,
responsibility, and maturity-are the primary
requirements for admission. The student must
have demonstrated superior intellectual
achievement. A bachelor's degree is strongly
recommended. The quality of the academic
background as well as the performance of the
student in relation to the load attempted will be
weighed. A genuine interest in human welfare
is important. Efficient methods of study and
effective powers of reasoning are essential.
A limited number of out-of-state students, in
proportion to the number in the university as a
whole, may be admitted. Students who have


failed academically or are ineligible to continue
in another medical school will not be admitted.
Applications from students who are present-
ly enrolled in another medical school will be
considered provided (1) students are eligible to
continue in their present medical school, (2) the
school they are now attending is a member of
the Association of American Medical Colleges,
and (3) space is available.
Prospective applicants must take the Medi-
cal College Admissions Test, preferably by the
spring preceding the submission of the applica-
tion. A personal interview will be required for
final acceptance.
Graduate students who are candidates for
the Ph.D. degree in medical sciences should
apply through the Graduate School.
(See a more detailed description in the Col-
lege of Medicine catalog.)

Admission to the College of
Veterinary Medicine
When to Apply: Application forms are

package (residency status, application forms,
fees, letters of recommendation, GRE scores,
etc.) must be received by the Office of Admis-
sions by 4:30 p.m., December 15, for the appli-
cant to be considered for admission.
Candidates seeking admission to programs
leading to the Master of Science or Doctor of
Philosophy degree with emphasis on animal
disease problems should apply through the
Graduate School.
(See the College of Veterinary Medicine in
the colleges section of this catalog.)

Test Score Requirements

Except as noted below, all international stu-
dents seeking admission to the University of
Florida are required to submit satisfactory
scores of 550 or higher on the Test of English as
a Foreign Language (TOEFL).
International students whose native tongue
is English or who have studied at a United
States high school, college, or university for one
year or more are not required to submit TOEFL
scores but must submit satisfactory scores on an
appropriate admissions test.
Students who enter the university as fresh-
men or sophomores (less than 60 hours of cred-
it) must submit Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT)
or American College Test (ACT) scores before
their application for admission will be consid-
ered.
Graduate applicants must submit scores on
the Graduate Record Examination (GRE).
In some cases, students educated in coun-
tries other than the United States where the
GRE is not available who apply for admission to
graduate study while residing outside the Unit-
ed States may be granted, on the basis of hard-
ship, a one term postponement of the GRE but
NOT the TOEFL. Permission to register for sub-
sequent terms will depend upon the submission
of scores on the Graduate Record Examination.
All international students applying for
admission to the Master of Business Adminis-
tration (MBA) program must submit satisfacto-
ry scores on the Graduate Management
Admission Test (GMAT) before their applica-
tion for admission can be considered.
TOEFL information and registration forms
are available in many locations outside the Unit-
ed States; usually at U.S. embassies and con-
sulates, at offices of the United States
Information Agency, from U.S. educational
commissions and foundations, at Binational
Centers, and from many private organizations
such as the Institute of International Education
(lIE), America-Mideast Education and Training


Services, Inc. (AMIDEAST), African American
Institute (AAI), and the American-Korean Foun-
dation. Candidates who cannot obtain informa-
tion locally on TOEFL, GRE, GMAT, or SAT
should write: Educational Testing Service,
Princeton, NJ 08540, U.S.A.

Application Fee
Each application for admission must be
accompanied by a nonrefundable application
fee of $20 (U.S. currency and drawn on a U.S.
bank). An application will not be processed
without the application fee. If you find it diffi-
cult to submit the application fee because of cur-
rency restrictions in your country, we suggest
that you request a friend or relative in the Unit-
ed States to submit the fee on your behalf.

Academic Records
Consideration of an application for admis-
sion cannot be given until ALL required creden-
tials as indicated in the section APPLYING FOR
ADMISSION are received by the Office of
Admissions. All documents must be accompa-
nied by certified English translations and
become the property of the university. Creden-
tials of applicants who do not enroll will be
destroyed and cannot be returned or forwarded
elsewhere.
IMPORTANT: Send all applications and
credentials to the Office of Admissions, P. O.
Box 2946, University of Florida, Gainesville,
Florida 32602-2946, U.S.A.

Notice of Admission -
If a student's application for admission to
the University of Florida is approved, an official
notice of acceptance will be sent by the universi-
ty. Admission is for a SPECIFIC term. If a stu-
dent is unable to enroll for the term indicated in
the notice of acceptance, the Office of Admis-
sions should be informed immediately. If the
student wishes to be considered for entrance to
a different term, the Office of Admissions must
be advised. Under no circumstances should an
applicant make definite plans to depart for
Gainesville until officially notified by the uni-
versity that approval has been given to the
application for admission. A student who comes
to 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
approved for admission.


Readmissions
Application for Readmission
The information contained in this section
applies only to students who have been previ-
ously admitted and who have attended the Uni-
versity of Florida.


Former undergraduate students who do not
enroll at the university for two consecutive
terms, including summer, must apply for read-
mission. Readmission, however, is not guaran-
teed and is subject to the availability of space at
the appropriate level in the desired college or
major. Students who skip a single term will be
scheduled automatically for a registration
appointment for one additional term only.
How to Apply for Readmission: An appli-
cant should request application forms from the
Office of Admissions, University of Florida,
Gainesville, Florida, 32611-2058. Forms and
directions vary with the level of readmission. In
the request, applicants should indicate the col-
lege and the level of last enrollment at the Uni-
versity of Florida as well as the college and level
to which they wish to apply. Applications must
be received in the Office of Admissions by the
deadline for the term as published in the univer-
sity calendar.


Satisfactory Academic Record

Applicants must be eligible to return to the
University of Florida. If applicants have attend-
ed any college or university since last enrolled
at the University of Florida, they must also have
an average of C or higher (as computed by the
University of Florida) on all work attempted
at each institution. (Note: Grades received
at other institutions are not averaged with
grades received at the University of Florida for
the purpose of meeting university grade-point
average requirements.) Students must list all
institutions attended and provide complete offi-
cial transcripts from each. Failure to declare
attendance at another institution could invali-
date admission and any credits or degrees
earned. Applicants must also be in good stand-
ing and eligible to return to each institution pre-
viously attended.
Applicants for readmission must meet the
current admission requirements of the college
or school they expect to enter. Readmission is
not guaranteed and is subject to the availability
of space at the appropriate level in the desired
college or major. (Consult the appropriate col-
lege section of the catalog for specific admission
requirements.)
While grades earned at other institutions
may be considered when readmission decisions
are made, such grades are not averaged with
grades received at the University of Florida for
purposes of meeting grade point average
requirements.

Satisfactory Conduct Record

Applicants must present a satisfactory
record of conduct. Regardless of other qualifica-
tions, applicants who have experienced major or
continuing difficulties with school or other
authorities since the last enrollment at the Uni-
versity of Florida may find their application for
readmission denied.






ADMISSIONS
I


Fresh Start Program

Former undergraduate students who have
been suspended who wish to return to the Uni-
versity of Florida after an absence of no fewer
than 5 calendar years (during which they have
engaged predominantly in non-academic activi-
ties) may petition for readmission under the
Fresh Start Program. If admitted, credit for pre-
vious UF courses in which a grade of C or better


was earned will be calculated in UF hours
earned and may be applied toward a degree.
No grades previously earned in UF courses will
be included in the UF grade point average. All
previous courses attempted and grades received
will remain on the student's official academic
record and transcript.
Students may not apply for the Fresh Start
Program subsequent to readmission to the uni-
versity. Students who have been readmitted


under Fresh Start may not petition subsequently
for any retroactive change to their academic
records. Students admitted under Fresh Start
who do not enroll must reapply for a future
term.
For additional information on policy and
procedures, former students who wish to peti-
tion for readmission under the Fresh Start Pro-
gram should contact the dean of the college into
which they seek readmission.









Residency:
Classification of Students-
Florida or Non-Florida
(Section 6C-7.005, Florida Administrative Code)
The deadline for applying for a change in resi-
dency status with all documentation is each
term's fee payment deadline.
(1) For the purpose of assessing registration
and tuition fees, a student shall be classi-
fied as a resident or a nonresident. A
"resident for tuition purposes" is a per-
son 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 established legal resi-
dence in Florida and shall have main-
tained legal residence in Florida for at
least twelve (12) months immediately
prior to his or her qualification. A depen-
dent child is a person who may be
claimed by his or her parent as a depen-
dent under the Federal Income Tax Code.
Every applicant for admission to a uni-
versity shall be required to make a state-
ment 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 maintain-
ing a 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 par-
ent or parents shall be prima facie evi-
dence of the individual's legal residence
in accordance with the provisions of Sec-
tion 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 accordance with the provi-
sions of Rule 6C-7.005(2).
(c) Inmaking domiciliary determinations
related to the classification of persons as
residents or nonresidents for tuition pur-
poses, the domicile of a married person,
irrespective of sex, shall be determined in
Accordance with the provisions of Section
240.1201(5), Florida Statutes.
(d) Any nonresident person, irrespective
of sex, who 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,
accede to the benefit of the spouse's
immediately precedent duration as a
legal resident for purposes of satisfying
the 12-month durational requirement.
(e) No person shall lose his or her resi-
dent 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 clas-
sified 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 per-
son, or, if a dependent child, the parent
or parents, establish domicile or legal res-
idence 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 provi-
sions of Section 240.1201(8), Florida
Statutes.
(g) The legal residence of a dependent
child whose parents are divorced, sepa-
rated, or otherwise living apart shall be
deemed to be Florida if either parent is a
legal resident of Florida, regardless of
which parent is entitled to claim, and
does in fact claim, the minor as a 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 education while classified as a res-
ident for tuition purposes and who sub-
sequently abandons Florida domicile
shall be permitted to reenroll at an insti-
tution of higher education in this state as
a resident for tuition purposes in accor-
dance 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 administra-
tive personnel employed by state public
schools, community colleges, and institu-
tions of higher education, and the spous-
es and dependent children of such
individuals, shall be classified as resi-
dents 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 pro-
vided satisfactory evidence as to his or
her legal residence and domicile to
appropriate university officials. In deter-
mining residency, the university shall
require evidence such as a voter registra-
tion, driver's license, automobile registra-
tion, location of bank account, rent
receipts or any other relevant materials
as evidence that the applicant has main-
tained 12 months residence immediately
prior to qualification. To determine if the
student is a dependent child, the univer-
sity 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 res-
ident tuition status in accordance with
Section (1)(d) above, the applicant must
present evidence of the spouse's legal


residence with certified copies of the
aforementioned documents. "Resident
student" classification shall also be con-
strued to include students to whom an
Immigration Parolee card or a Form 1-94
(Parole Edition) was issued at least one
year prior to the first day of classes for
which resident student status is sought,
or who have had their resident alien sta-
tus approved by the United States Immi-
gration and Naturalization Service, or
who hold an Immigration and Natural-
ization Form 1-151, 1-551 or a notice of an
approved adjustment of status applica-
tion, or Cuban Nationals or Vietnamese
Refugees or other refugees or asylees so
designated by the United States Immi-
gration and Naturalization Service who
are considered as Resident Aliens, or
other legal aliens, provided such stu-
dents meet the residence requirements
stated above and comply with subsection
(4) below. The burden of establishing
facts which justify classification of a stu-
dent as a resident and domiciliary enti-
tled to "resident for tuition purposes"
registration rates is on the applicant for
such classification.
(3) In applying this policy:
(a) "Student" shall mean a person admit-
ted 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 guardian or legal custodian of
the individual, other than the father or
mother, it shall mean the guardian or
legal custodian.
(d) The term "dependent child," as used
in this rule, is the same as a dependent as
defined in the Internal Revenue Code of
1954.
(4) In all applications for admission or regis-
tration at the institution on a space-avail-
able basis a "resident for tuition
purposes" applicant, or, if a dependent
child, the parent of the applicant, shall
make and file with such application a
written statement, under oath, that the
applicant is a bona fide resident and
domiciliary of the state of Florida, enti-
tled as such to classification as a "resi-
dent for tuition purposes" under the
terms and conditions prescribed for resi-
dents and domiciliaries of the state of
Florida. All claims to "resident for tuition

RESIDENCY


and qualification as a resident, rather
than for the purpose of maintaining a
mere temporary residence of abode inci-
dent to enrollment in an institution for
higher education, may apply for and be
granted classification as a "resident for
tuition purposes," provided, however,
that those students who are nonresident
aliens or who are in the United States on
a nonimmigration visa will not be enti-
tled to reclassification. An application for
reclassification as a "resident for tuition
purposes" shall comply with 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 stat-
ed 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 required to establish res-
dence for tuition purposes. In the
absence of such evidence, the applicant
shall not be reclassified as a "resident for
tuition purposes." It is recommended
that the application for reclassification be
accompanied by a certified copy of a dec-
laration of intent to establish legal domi-
cile 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 reclas-
sification and the necessary documenta-
tion is not received by the registrar prior
to the last day of registration for the term
in which the student intends to be reclas-
sified, the student will not be reclassified
for that term.
(6) Appeal from a determination denying
"resident for tuition purposes" status to
applicant therefore may be initiated after


appropriate administrative remedies are
exhausted by the filing of a petition for
review pursuant to Section 120.68 Florida
Statutes.
(7) Any student granted status as a "resident
for tuition purposes," which status is
based on a sworn statement which is
false shall, upon determination of such
falsity, be subject to such disciplinary
sanctions as may be imposed by the pres-
ident of the university.

(deferment of third party billing) for the
courses in which the student is enrolled.
The university calendar appearing at the
front of this catalog sets forth the beginning and
ending dates of each semester. Registration

associated with all courses in which he/she is

sets forth the specific dates.

Assessment of Fees-Pursuant to Section 6C-
7.002, Florida Administrative Code: Fees are
based on the total number of credit hours and
the course level for which the student is
enrolled. Students must assess and pay their
own fees. University personnel will not be
held accountable for proper assessment or
mathematical accuracy of calculations. A
schedule of tuition fees for all programs can be
obtained by contacting University Financial
Services.

Health, Athletic, Activity and Service and
Scientific Laboratory fees.
Health Fee-All students must pay a speci-
fied health fee which is assessed on a per credit
hour basis and is included in the basic hourly

health insurance a student may purchase.
Athletic Fee-All students must pay a speci-
fied athletic fee per credit hour each term. Half-
time graduate research and teaching assistants

billing) by the fee payment deadline will be sub-
ject to a late payment fee of at least $50.00 and
no more than $100.00.
Waiver of Late Fees-A student who believes

the appropriate office as follows:

EXPENSES


In collecting fees, the university may impose
additional requirements as deemed appropriate,
including advance payment or security deposit
for the services to be provided by the University
of Florida.
Payments on all financial .obligations to the
university will be applied on the basis of age of
the debt. The oldest debt will be paid first.
Deadlines-Students are reminded that
deadlines are strictly enforced. The university
does not have the authority to waive late fees
unless it has been determined that the
university is primarily responsible for the
delinquency or that extraordinary circum-
stances warrant such waiver.

Cancellation and Reinstatement-The
university shall cancel the registration of any
student who has not paid any portion of his/her
fee liability by the published deadlines.
Reinstatement shall require the approval of
the university and payment of all delinquent lia-
bilities including the $50 late registration and
$50 late payment fees. A student whose registra-
tion has been cancelled must request reinstate-
ment.
In the event a student has not paid the entire
balance of his/her fee liability by the published
deadlines, the university shall temporarily sus-
pend further academic progress of the student.
This will be accomplished by flagging the stu-
dent's record which will prevent the student
from receiving grades, transcripts or a diploma,
and registration will be denied for future terms
until the account has been settled in full.
Deferral of Registration and Tuition Fees-A
fee deferment allows students to pay fees after
the fee payment deadline without being subject
to either cancellation of registration for
nonpayment of fees prior to the established
deadline, or the late payment fee. The university
may award fee deferments to students in the
following circumstances:
Students whose state or federal financial
assistance is delayed due to circumstances
beyond the control of the student.
Students receiving veterans educational
assistance benefits.
Students for whom formal arrangements
have been made with the university for pay-
ment by an acceptable third-party donor.
This deferment covers tuition fee payments
only and must be established by the fee pay-
ment deadline. Fee deferments are granted
based on information from the Office for Stu-
dent Financial Affairs (financial aid deferments)
or the Office of the University Registrar (veter-
ans). Questions on eligibility for a fee deferment
should be referred to the appropriate office.
Waiver of Fees-The university may waive fees
as follows:
Participants in sponsored institutes and
programs where substantially all direct costs
are paid by the sponsoring agent may have
all fees waived.

on a permanent, full-time basis for at least
six months may be permitted to waive fees
up to a maximum of six credit hours per

the State University System may be given
one nontransferrable certificate (fee waiver)
for each full academic term during which
the person serves as an intern supervisor. All
fees are waived.

diploma and baccalaureate degree as pro-
vided by dual credit enrollment or early
admission, Florida Statutes are entitled to a
full waiver of undergraduate fees. Books
and instructional materials may be provided
on a lend-return basis if all requirements are
met.

6 credit hours), as provided by Section
240.235(4), Florida Statutes.
The non-Florida student financial aid fee
may not be waived for students receiving
an out-of-state fee waiver.

od of time for shorter terms, and written docu-
mentation is received from the student.

da are eligible to receive a pro-rata refund of all
tuition and fees, including housing charges,
for up to 60% of their first term. An administra-

be assessed upon the amount of the total
charges assessed to the student. The administra-


tive fee will be deducted from the amount to be
refunded.
Refunds must be requested at University
Financial Services. Proper documentation must
be presented when a refund is requested. A
waiting period for processing may be required.

Student Housing
The University of Florida offers resident
students a unique and exciting residence hall pro-
gram. Living on campus is a profitable
educational experience that students 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 resi-
dent population of both in-state and out-of-state






STUDENT AFFAIRS


students, as well as students from 100 different
foreign countries. Since students come from dif-
fering environmental backgrounds and social
experiences, they bring with them varying
needs and expectations. Because of this diversi-
ty in the student body, it would be a disservice
to students to take a unilateral approach in
developing the residence hall program. There-
fore, the Division of Housing has developed a
program based upon alternatives and choices.
Students may select from various housing
accommodations and environments that best fit
their needs.
GENERAL INFORMATION
All freshmen who are admitted to the uni-
versity will receive a housing application card
with their formal letter of admission from the
Office of Admissions until housing facilities are
full.
The University of Florida has no residency
requirement for freshmen attending the univer-
sity for the first time during the fall semester.
Freshmen entering the university during the
summer terms) must live on campus during the
summer to be eligible for fall semester on-cam-
pus housing. Entering students are free to
choose either on-campus or off-campus accom-
modations. Students who voluntarily contract
for on-campus housing normally must do so for
the entire academic year (August to May) if
enrolled. However, residents should be full-
time students to be eligible to reside in the resi-
dence halls. Full-time enrollment for residence
is defined as being enrolled in 12 semester cred-
it hours if an undergraduate and 9 semester
credit hours if a graduate student.
All students other than beginning freshmen
must initiate their own arrangements for hous-
ing either by (1) applying to: Assignments
Office, Division of Housing, University of Flori-
da, Gainesville, FL 32611, or (2) obtaining
accommodations in private housing. (See Off-
Campus Housing later in this section.)
All correspondence concerning application
for university housing should be addressed to
the Division of Housing, Assignments Office,
University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida 32611.
An application for residence hall space for stu-
dents other than beginning freshmen may be
filled out 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. Application requests are considered
first-come, first-served, on a space-available
basis.
Roommate requests will be considered if the
individuals wishing to room together submit
their housing agreements clearly indicating
their desire to room together and elect the same
visitation choice and assignment options.
Disabled students are also offered housing
on a first-come, first-served, space-available
basis. Accessible housing is available for dis-
abled 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 conditioning and floor space.
Beaty Towers provides apartment living on
campus. These two-bedroom apartments are
fully contained with bathrooms, study, kitchen,
and two separate bedrooms for four students.
Each small apartment is fully carpeted, air-con-
ditioned and has a wall telephone jack. The
New Residence Facility is designed for junior,
senior, and graduate students. Each apartment
has four single bedrooms, two baths, a kitchen
and a living room area. Rent includes limited
utilities, cable television service and local phone
service. Each apartment is carpeted, air-condi-
tioned and has telephone jacks.
Murphree Area offers a wide variety of
accommodations ranging from single rooms to
suites for six. Approximately half of the spaces
in this area are air-conditioned. The most preva-
lent room is a suite for two. Each suite is made
up of two rooms--one designed as a study and
living area, the other as a bedroom with lavato-
ry. Renovated suites for two in Fletcher and
Sledd Halls are similar except they are smaller,
are air-conditioned, and do not contain lavato-
ries. Thomas Hall does not have suites for two.
THE RESIDENCE HALL STAFF AND
STUDENT GOVERNMENT
The Division of Housing employs over 450
full-time and part-time staff. Staff include custo-
dians, maintenance technicians and tradesmen,
clerical staff, administrators, and student staff
including hall directors, resident assistants, desk
assistants, and security assistants.
One of the Housing staff's primary goals is
to provide an environment that supports the
educational mission of the university. Staff are
committed to going beyond merely providing a
place for students to eat, sleep, and study. Staff
and student leaders plan social, recreational,
cultural, and educational opportunities.
Student's main contact with staff is with res-
ident assistants (RAs), co-op officers, hall direc-
tors (HDs), residence directors (RDs), and
assistant directors of Housing for Residence Life
(ADHs). An undergraduate RA or co-op officer
lives on each floor or section to serve as a peer
adviser aiding students in their transition to the
university experience. Each building additional-
ly has one graduate HD or one full-time profes-
sional RD who supervises the RAs, helps to
promote a learning environment, and coordi-
nates area activities. The ADH, a full-time uni-
versity administrator, is responsible for the
overall administrative and educational func-
tions within each residence area.
Residence hall staff members act as referral
agents to acquaint students with the many
resources of the university and the community.


Staff are also trained in crisis intervention and
in personal and fire safety and security proce-
dures.
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 recre-
ational life. The Inter-Residence Hall Associa-
tion was established to help stimulate this
participation. IRHA represents the collective
interests of all resident students. This organiza-
tion also serves as a channel of communication
between residence area government councils,
the university community, and other outside
interests. This self-government program at both
the hall and area levels offers residents the
opportunity to help establish guidelines for
group living and to assist in the planning of
social and educational activities for their fellow
students.
GENERAL SERVICES
LOCAL TELEPHONE SERVICE: A tele-
phone jack that provides 24-hour service on
campus and within the Gainesville area is locat-

Student Financial Affairs
The Office for Student Financial Affairs
(SFA) coordinates and administers most student
financial aid programs at the University of Flori-
da and provides financial assistance and coun-
seling to University of Florida students.
SFA awards aid to students according to
financial need-the difference between current
educational costs and what individual students
can pay toward these costs. The University of
Florida uses nationally recognized need analysis
services to evaluate financial need for UF stu-
dents from information they and their families
supply on their financial aid applications.
WHAT IS FINANCIAL AID?
Financial aid is money provided to students
and their families as either "gift aid" or "self-
help" to help pay college costs. "Gift aid," as the
name implies, is free money such as scholar-
ships and grants. Students do not have to repay
these awards. "Self-help" programs include
loans and employment and are so named
because students must repay loans and must
work for money awarded through employment
programs. Awards to students consist of schol-
arships, 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 com-
plete (all required application data received) 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 Federal Pell Grant program, Federal
Stafford Loans, and OPS employment are open
for application throughout the year (see Impor-
tant Deadlines below).
Although SFA cannot award financial aid to
students until they have been officially admitted
to the University of Florida, 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 stu-
dents automatically when they apply for admis-
sion. Applications are available from most
Florida community colleges and high school
guidance offices. Students may also write for
applications to University of Florida, Office for
Student Financial Affairs, 103 Criser Hall,
Gainesville, Florida 32611-2058, or call (904) 392-
1275.
Students must complete and submit a Uni-
versity of Florida Application for Financial Aid to
the Office for Student Financial Affairs and a
Free Application for Federal Student Aid Form
(FFSA) to the Federal Student Aid Programs
processor at the address indicated on the form.
We will also accept need analyses from the Col-
lege Scholarship Service, the American College
Testing Service and United Student Aid Funds
(USAF). For your application to be considered
"on time," your financial data must reach us
from the processor no later than April 15. Be
sure to allow at least three weeks processing
time at the need analysis agency. A Financial Aid
Transcript from all previously attended institu-
tions covering all periods of attendance is
required for all transfer students for their files to
be considered complete. When completing 1993-
1994 forms, students should provide accurate
financial figures, taken directly from completed
1992 income tax forms. To comply with federal
financial aid requirements, the Office for Stu-
dent Financial Affairs must verify information
students and parents supply on their applica-
tion forms. Incorrect information or incorrectly
completed 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 com-
pleted and sent to the appropriate processor as
soon as possible after January 1. April 15 is the
on-time deadline for Student Financial Affairs
to receive your information from the need anal-
ysis agency. Students who wish to be consid-
ered for campus-based and institutional
programs (such as Federal Work-Study, Federal
Perkins Loans, Federal Supplemental Educa-
tional 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, students
must make sure that the Federal Student Aid
Programs need analysis processor, CSS or ACT
(NOTE: You may not apply for this program
through United Student Aid Funds), receives
their application by April 15. Federal Stafford
Loan on-time deadlines are set by semester. For
instance, the on-time deadline for applying for
an insured loan for Fall 1993 is June 1. Individu-
al colleges within the University and private
organizations have their own deadlines for
applying for aid.
GRADUATE AID
Graduate students at the University of Flori-
da may be eligible for part-time employment
and loans through SFA and/or for assis-
tantships and fellowships through their col-
leges. To apply for College Work-Study and
loans, graduate students must follow the proce-
dures in HOW TO APPLY, including applying
as early as possible. Off-campus jobs and the
state-funded OPS job program 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 aca-
demic performance and financial need. SFA
awards a limited number of scholarships to aca-
demically outstanding undergraduates with
documented need. Most academic achievement
scholarships are awarded through the Office of
Admissions. Individual colleges within the Uni-
versity also offer scholarships to undergradu-
ates. For information on these, students should
contact the dean of their college. Many private
donors offer scholarships, selecting the recipi-
ent(s) directly; students should check with civic
clubs, service organizations, private corpora-
tions, and other resources in their home com-
munity.
GRANTS are awarded to undergraduate
students with financial need. The three largest
grant programs available at University of Flori-
da are the Federal Pell Grant, the Federal Sup-
plemental Educational Opportunity Grant
program, and the state-funded Florida Student
Assistance Grant. Awards range from $100 to

$4,000.
LOANS. At the University of Florida, under-
graduate students can apply for the following
student loans:
Federal Stafford Student Loans, University
of Florida Institutional Loans, Federal Perkins
Loans, and Federal Supplemental Loans for Stu-
dents (FSLS) and unsubsidized Stafford Loans.
Parents of dependent undergraduates can also
take out educational loans for their son or
daughter through the Federal Parent Loans to
Undergraduate Students (FPLUS) program.
These programs offer long-term, low-interest
loans that must be repaid when the borrower
graduates, withdraws, or drops to less than
half-time enrollment.






STUDENT AFFAIRS


Loans range from $100 to $7,500 an academ-
ic year at interest rates from 0% to 11% annual-
ly. The actual amount of each loan except for
FPLUS is based on financial need as determined
from information the borrower provides on the
FAFSA.
The university also has a Short-Term Loan
program to help students meet temporary finan-
cial needs related to educational expenses. Stu-
dents may borrow up to $400 or the amount of
in-state tuition if they have an acceptable repay-
ment 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. Short Term Loan applications are
available at the Short Term Loan counter in 107
Criser Hall.
PART-TIME EMPLOYMENT through the
university is offered to about 7,500 students
each year. In addition, many students work off-
campus in the Gainesville community. Students
normally work 15-20 hours a week, 4 or 5 days a
week, and earn at least minimum wage. Most
hiring departments help students arrange their
working hours around their academic schedule.
STUDENT EMPLOYMENT OFFICE
The SFA Student Employment Office is a
clearinghouse for part-time employment and
coordinates three employment programs: the
Federal Work-Study Program, Other Personnel
Services (OPS), and Off-Campus Jobs. Federal
Work-Study is a federal program based on need
which is awarded to students as part of their
overall financial aid package. OPS jobs are state-
funded and are not based on need. Student
Employment maintains job bulletin boards for
all three programs at the following locations:
Criser Hall Courtyard, McCarty Hall first floor,
Norman Hall first floor, outside 305 Reitz
Union, and outside H101 Shands Medical Cen-
ter. The Criser Hall job board is updated daily,
and weekly updates are posted at the other loca-
tions.

INFORMATION AND COUNSELING
Student Financial Affairs is open for student
service from Monday through Friday. For finan-
cial aid information, applications and counsel-
ing, students can go to the Criser Hall offices or
call 392-1275. A telephone counselor is also
available daily.
Another resource for financial aid informa-
tion is the NEXUS telephone tape series. Tapes
402-A through 402-L contain current informa-
tion on financial aid programs at the Unviersity
of Florida. The telephone number for the
NEXUS system is 392-1683.

University of Florida AIDS Policy

The policy of the university is to treat cases
of HIV infection on a case-by-case basis. When a

to the attention of the university, whether stu-
dent, faculty or staff member, the Director of the
Student Health Care Center, with the permis-
sion of the affected individual, will review the
case, advise the university, and assist in the
coordination of resources and services.
The confidentiality of the individual as well
as the individual's welfare will be respected.
Breach of confidentiality of information
obtained by a university employee in an official
university capacity may result in disciplinary


action. Based on current medical information
concerning risk of infection, the university does
not isolate persons with AIDS or HIV infection
from other individuals in the educational setting
or work setting.
Further, it is the policy of the university to
provide education which seeks to prevent the
spread of HIV infection, and to strongly encour-
age those who are infected or wish to know
whether they are infected to seek early diagno-
sis and intervention which are crucial.
The university considers AIDS to be a handi-
cap. Existing support services can be utilized by
students or employees who are disabled by
AIDS or HIV infection.

Student Life

Student Activities and
Organizations

Student Government: Student Government at
the University of Florida is a cooperative orga-
nization for advancing student interests and is
based on mutual confidence among and
between the student body, the faculty, and the
administration. Considerable authority has been
granted the student body for the regulation and
conduct of student affairs. The criterion in
granting authority to the Student Government
has been the disposition of UF students to
accept responsibility commensurate 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 responsi-
bility for the conduct of student affairs at the
university is a valuable part of the educational
growth and development of the individual stu-
dent.
Student Government is a body politic, occu-
pying its franchise under grant from the Board
of Regents and subject to its continued
approval. Student Government is patterned on
the state and national form of government but
adapted to the local needs of the student body.
Powers are distributed into the three branches:
(1) 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 stu-
dent body, of which all UF students are mem-
bers. In addition to elected offices, many
appointed positions have been established in
Student Government, including Cabinet and
sub-Cabinet, Student Honor Court, and the
Traffic Court posts.
Student Government, recognizing its limita-
tions as a true "government," attempts to exer-
cise 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 com-
posed of representatives selected from the col-
leges 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
welcomes the contributions of religious tradi-
tions to the campus community. The churches,
centers, and organizations associated with the
university offer a rich variety of programs and
ministries. There are also interdenominational
and non-denominational activities fostered by


the Department of Religion and the Campus
Ministries Cooperative.
Social Fraternities: twenty-eight national
social fraternities have established chapters at
the university. The general work of the fraterni-
ties 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 Upsilon,
Kappa Alpha, Kappa Alpha Psi, Kappa Sigma,
Lambda Chi Alpha, Phi Gamma Delta, Phi
Delta Theta, Phi Beta Sigma, Phi Kappa Sigma,
Phi Kappa Tau, Pi Kappa Alpha, 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.
Nineteen women's sororities have estab-
lished chapters at the university. Fifteen have
built chapter houses and four live in other hous-
ing arrangements. These living quarters serve as
the center of the activities of the individual
sororities. Primary jurisdiction in sorority mat-
ters is vested in the Panhellenic Council. The
chapters at the University of Florida are Alpha
Chi Omega, Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha Xi Delta,
Alpha Epsilon Phi, Alpha 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 Gamma Rho,
Sigma Kappa; Zeta Phi Beta and Zeta Tau
Alpha.
In addition to the above listed social fraterni-
ties and sororities, there are approximately 170
honorary or professional organizations and
approximately 200 special interest (non-academ-
ic) 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 com-
mitment 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 Stu-
dent Honor Court, the Health Center Student
Conduct Standards Committee, and faculty.

VI. Off-Campus Conduct: When a student vio-
lates city, state or federal law, by an offense
committed off the campus and which is not
associated with a university-connected activity,
the disciplinary authority of the university will
not be used merely to duplicate the penalty
awarded for such an act under applicable ordi-
nances and laws. The university will take disci-
plinary action against a student for such an
off-campus offense only when it is required by
law to do so or when the nature of the offense is
such that in the judgment of the Director of Stu-
dent Judicial Affairs, the continued presence of
the student on campus is likely to interfere with
the educational process or the orderly operation
of the university; or the continued presence of
the student on campus is likely to endanger the
health, safety, or welfare of the university com-
munity or its property. If the Director of Student
Judicial Affairs determines that disciplinary
action is warranted, the Director of Student
Judicial Affairs shall so notify the student in
accordance with Rule 6C1-4.16(5). The action of
the university with respect to any such off-cam-





STUDENT LIFE


pus conduct shall be made independently of
any off-campus authority.
VII. Postponement of Hearing Due to Pending
or Possible Criminal or Civil Charges: If the
student charged with a violation of the Student
Conduct Code, regardless of which primary
judicial body may hear the matter, wishes to
have the hearing postponed because there is
pending or possible civil or criminal litigation
which he/she feels might be prejudiced by the
findings of the hearing such postponement may
be granted provided the student agrees to
accept conduct probation or suspension,
depending upon the gravity of the offense. Such
probation or suspension will be determined and
activated by the Director of Student Judicial
Affairs and will remain in force until such time
as the student requests a hearing before the
appropriate primary judicial body and the hear-
ing is held. The student shall be informed
whether he/she would be placed on probation
or suspended prior to making a decision to
postpone the hearing.
VIII. Student Waiver of Right to Hearing: In
the event a student charged with a violation of
the Student Conduct Code desires to waive the
right to a hearing by the appropriate official or
hearing body, and the student so indicates in
writing, the Director of Student Judicial Affairs,
provided he/she agrees to accept jurisdiction,
may make a determination of fact and take
appropriate action concerning the alleged viola-
tion.
IX. Summary Hearing: In the event a student
charged with a violation of the Student Conduct
Code, which in the opinion of the Director of
Student Judicial Affairs, if proven, would not
warrant a penalty in excess of two semesters
probation, and the student does not waive his or
her right to a hearing before the appropriate
official or hearing body, the Director of Student
Judicial Affairs may require a hearing to be held
before the chairperson of the Committee on Stu-
dent Conduct or the chairperson's designated
representative rather than before the full com-
mittee.
X. Conflict of Jurisdiction: In the event that the
offense is within the jurisdiction of more than
one primary judicial body, the Director of Stu-
dent Judicial Affairs shall determine which judi-
cial body shall hear the charge.
XI. Sanctions: A student adjudicated responsi-
ble of violations of the Student Conduct Code
shall be subject to sanctions commensurate with
the offense and any aggravating and mitigating
circumstances, which may include one or more
of the following penalties, unless otherwise
expressly provided:
A. Reprimand-The student is given formal
written notice and official recognition is
taken of the offense committed.
B. Conduct Probation-The student is
deemed not in good standing and cannot
represent the university on any athletic
team other than intramurals or hold an
office in any student organization regis-
tered with the university. In the event a
student on conduct probation is found in
violation of the terms of such probation


or of the Student Conduct Code which
includes the Academic Honesty Guide-
lines prior to the completion of the pro-
bation period, he/she may receive
expulsion or any other lesser penalty.
The duration of any probation period or
any conditions or penalty(ies) imposed
for the violation shall be in proportion to
the seriousness of the violation.
C. Suspension-The student is required to
leave the university for a given or indefi-
nite period of time, the termination of
which shall depend upon specified acts
of the student's own volition related to
mitigation of the offense committed.
D. Expulsion-The student is permanently
deprived of his/her opportunity to con-
tinue at the university in any status.
E. Payment of Damages-The student is
required to pay for damages to universi-
ty property, provided that such payment
shall be limited to the actual cost of
repair or replacement of such property.
F. Reduced or Failing Grade-The student
is given a reduced or failing grade for the
class in which the offense occurred for
violations of the Academic Honesty
Guidelines, but only by the faculty mem-
ber involved and upon recommendation
thereto.
G. Community service, counseling, or other
appropriate requirements-The student
is required to complete a specified
amount of community service, meet with
a counselor for a specified period of time
and/or complete some other require-
ment considered appropriate by the
hearing body based on the nature of the
offense.
XII. Appeals: The Student Honor Court, Resi-
dence Hall Conduct Board, and the Coordinator
for Residential Judicial Programs make findings
of fact and recommendations concerning inno-
cence or responsibility and imposition of a judi-
cial sanction to the Director of Student Judicial
Affairs. The student may appeal the recommen-
dation of the Student Honor Court, the Resi-
dence Hall Conduct Board, and the Coordinator
for Residential Judicial Programs to the Director
of Student Judicial Affairs. The decision of the
Director of Student Judicial Affairs may be
appealed to the Dean for Student Services.
The Student Conduct Committee and the
Health Center Student Conduct Standards Com-
mittee make findings of fact and recommenda-
tions concerning responsibility and the
imposition of a judicial sanction to the Dean for
Student Services. The decision of the Dean for
Student Services may be appelaed to the Vice
President for Student Affairs.
All appeals must be made in writing to the
appropriate official within five days after notice
of the last action taken unless otherwise agreed
upon in writing by the appellant and the person
to whom the appeal is directed.


Intercollegiate Athletics

For each of the last nine years, the University
of Florida's intercollegiate athletic program has
ranked among the nation's 10 best, based on
research conducted by USA TODAY.
The Gators field eight men's teams and eight
women's teams. The men compete in baseball,
basketball, cross country, football, golf, swim-
ming, tennis and track & field, while the Lady
Gators participate in basketball, cross country,
golf, gymnastics, swimming, tennis, track &
field and volleyball.
Some of the nation's best athletes don the
orange & blue, as Gator student-athletes have
earned a combined 1,259 All-America honors
since 1980. In addition, 69 Gator student-ath-
letes have represented their countries in
Olympic competition, including 20 in the 1992
Summer Games in Barcelona, Spain. In fact, if
the University of Florida were a country, the
Gators would have finished tied for 19th in the
medal standings with its 12 medals (seven gold)
which were won in Spain.
Florida competes in the Southeastern Con-
ference (SEC) along with Alabama, Arkansas,
Auburn, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana State,
Mississippi, Misissippi State, South Carolina,
Tennessee and Vanderbilt. Florida was a charter
member of the SEC in 1933. The 1991-92 aca-
demic year was a banner year for Florida, as the
Gators claimed a record eight SEC Champi-
onships and became the first school in the
league to win both the men's and women's All-
Sport Trophies in the same year. Eight of
Florida's coaches were named SEC Coach-of-
the-Year.
The University of Florida athletic program
stretches far beyond the playing fields, howev-
er, as a school-record 62 Gator student-athletes
were recognized for being nominated to the
SEC's Academic Honor Roll in 1991-92 mark-
ing the fourth consecutive year more than 50 UF
student-athletes have been honored for academ-
ic achievement. Since 1980-81, 438 Gator stu-
dent-athletes have earned SEC Academic
honors, the top total for a school in the league
over that span.
In addition, the Gator athletic program sup-
ports University of Florida academic programs.
In an era when the National Collegiate Athletic
Association (NCAA) estimates that 70 percent
of Division I schools are losing money on inter-
collegiate athletics, the University of Florida
Athletic Association contributed $2.2 million in
1991 to help fund university library services,
summer school, and an AIDS institute.
The University of Florida athletic program
also serves as a community focal point. In 1991-
92, Florida drew a total of 762,195 combined
fans for football, men's basketball, baseball,
gymnastics, volleyball and women's basketball.
It is estimated by the Gainesville Area Chamber
of Commerce that more than $30 million is gen-
erated annually for the community for a six-
game home football schedule. Florida was also
selected to host one of eight NCAA baseball
regional tournaments in three of the last four
years. In addition, UF has been the site of
NCAA or SEC championships/regional events





STUDENT LIFE
T


in gymnastics, swimming, tennis, track & field
and volleyball, along with hosting basketball
games in the National Invitational Tournament.
Ben Hill Griffin Stadium at Florida Field (the
football stadium) serves as a hub for the athletic
complex. With the crowning jewel of Ben Hill
Griffin Stadium at Florida Field the north
endzone expansion project completed just
prior to the 1991 season, capacity now stands at
83,000, making Florida Field one of the eight
largest on-campus football stadiums in the
nation. With the addition of the 10,000 seats, the
1991 season saw UF draw the top six crowds in
school history and the No. 1 football crowd in
state history, college or professional (85,461
Nov. 30, 1991 vs. Florida State). For the North
End Zone Expansion, the University Athletic
Association was honored with a first place
award by the City of Gainesville Beautification.
Another sign of Florida's commitment to
excellence within its athletic complex is the
12,000-seat Stephen C. O'Connell Center an
air-inflated dome which houses Gator basket-
ball and also transforms into an indoor track
facility while also being home to national pow-
erhouse swimming and gymnastics teams.
Gators just love their sports, as there are 70
courts and outdoor playing fields on the Uni-
versity of Florida campus and the O'Connell
Center and Florida Gymnasium are available for
indoor sports. In all, Florida offers more than 60
intramural and clubs sports and the campus is
located near many recreational lakes and rivers.
The beaches of the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic
Ocean are just a short drive away, as well as
many of the attractions which Florida has to
offer.

Intramural-Recreational Sports
The Recreational Sports Program is a signifi-
cant part of the total educational community at
the University of Florida. All students, faculty,
and staff are encouraged to participate voluntari-
ly in the program which has become an impor-
tant phase of extracurricular activities on the
campus and offers opportunity for exercise, recre-
ation, social contacts, and friendly competition.
Student administration is a tradition in the
Recreation Program at the university. Students
officiate the games, manage the leagues, and act
as student directors in the Recreational Sports
Office.
The checkout of equipment and the use of
all facilities are free to enrolled students, faculty
and staff, and competition between groups and


clubs is encouraged. Friendship, new games,
skills, and good times are guaranteed. For more
information contact the Recreational Sports
Office, 214 Florida Gym, at 392-0581.

INTRAMURAL LEAGUES
For structured competitive play, Intramural
Leagues and Tournaments are scheduled for
traditional as well as non-traditional activities.
Specific leagues available for the sports of flag
football, volleyball, soccer, basketball, and soft-
ball are Women's Independent, Co-Recreational,
Men's Independent, A, B, & C, Graduate, Resi-
dence Hall A&B, and Sorority. Individuals may
also compete in activities, such as swimming,
track, tennis, racketball, squash and wallyball. T-
shirts are awarded to winners in each division.

SPORTS CLUBS
The Sports Club program provides struc-
tured, competitive athletic opportunities
between different institutions in nonvarsity
sports. The program offers instruction, recre-
ation, and competition in approximately 35 dif-
ferent clubs. Individual sports clubs who
represent the University of Florida will be
assisted by the Sports Club coordinator in
becoming organized, utilizing facilities, check-
ing out equipment, and general resources for
participation purposes.

LAKE WAUBURG
The Lake Wauburg Recreational Areas are
located eight miles south of the university on
U.S. 441, and are available for use by students,
faculty, staff and their guests. The specific activ-
ities and facilities available at Lake Wauburg
North include sailing, boardsailing, canoeing,
crewing, fishing boats, sunbathing, picnic facili-
ties such as tables and grills, and sporting
equipment and swimming.

College Level Academic Skills Test
The state of Florida has developed a test of
college-level communication and computation
skills called the College Level Academic Skills
Test (CLAST).
CLAST is designed to test the communica-
tion and computation skills judged by state uni-
versity and community college faculty as
necessary for successful performance and pro-
gression through the baccalaureate level. The
test is required by Florida statutes and rules of
the State Board of Education.
CLAST is administered three times a year to
university students as well as to community col-
lege students who are completing either Associ-
ate of Arts degree programs or Associate of
Science degree programs and are seeking
admission to upper division programs in state
universities in Florida. Students who do not sat-
isfactorily complete the test will not be awarded
the Associate of Arts nor will they be admitted
to upper division status in state universities in
Florida. CLAST requirements also apply to stu-
dents transferring to upper division programs
in Florida state universities from Florida private
colleges and to those students transferring from
out-of-state colleges who have not had the
opportunity to take the test. Such students
must pass the test by the end of the next term in
which it is available to them.
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 com-
munication and computation skills are taught in
the curriculum.

Confidentiality of Student Records
The University of Florida assures the confi-
dentiality 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.
Directory information is that information
which can be released to the public on any stu-
dent. It is limited to: name, gender, class, col-
lege, and major; dates of attendance; degrees)
earned; honors and awards received; local and
permanent addresses; telephone number; partic-
ipation in officially recognized activities and
sports; and the weight and height of members
of athletics teams.
Currently enrolled students who wish to
withhold information in these categories should
complete a "Restriction of Directory Informa-
tion" form, available through the Office of the
University Registrar.
In general, present or former students have
the right to review personally their own educa-
tional records for information and to determine
accuracy. A photo I.D. or other equivalent doc-


umentation or personal recognition by the cus-
todian of record will be required before access is
granted. Parents of dependent students, as
defined by the Internal Revenue Service, have
these same rights upon presentation of proof of
the student's dependent status.

Gordon Rule (Communication and
Computation Requirement)
Students must complete with grades of C or
higher, 12 credits in designated courses that
involve substantial writing (a total of 24,000
words). Students select at least 12 credits from
among those Composition, Literature and the
Arts, Historical and Philosophical Studies, Inter-
national Studies and Diversity, and Social and
Behavioral Sciences general education courses
which are listed in each term's Schedule of
Courses. College Level Examination Program
(CLEP) credit cannot be used to satisfy the writ-
ing requirement.
In addition, each student must satisfactorily
complete with grades of C or higher, 6 credits of
course work which involves numerical analysis,
3 credits of which must be in mathematics, at
the level of college algebra or above. The other 3
credits may be in mathematics, statistics, appro-
priate courses in computer information sciences,
or PHI 2100, PHI 3130, or EGM 3311.
The Communication-Computation course
work must be satisfactorily completed prior to
earning 60 credits. The courses acceptable for
the computation requirement are identical to
those authorized for the General Education
Mathematical Sciences Requirement (see the
Lower Division section of this catalog). Any stu-
dent satisfying College Level Examination Pro-
gram (CLEP) requirements in mathematics shall
be allowed to exempt three (3) credits of mathe-
matics required by this rule.

Maintenance of Student Records
The Office of the University Registrar main-
tains students' academic records. A progress
report is sent to students at the end of each term
of enrollment indicating grades, cumulative
hours earned, and grade points. Probationary
status and degrees awarded, if any, are also
indicated.
Transcripts: Upon written request, the uni-
versity will provide complete academic tran-
scripts for any student who has.attended the
University of Florida. To reflect a true and com-
plete academic record for undergraduate, grad-
uate, and professional students, the university
will issue only complete transcripts.

Transfer Credit Policy
Credit hours for work completed at a com-
munity college after the student has earned a
total of 64 semester hours (or 96 quarter hours)
of acceptable 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 stu-
dent's University of Florida record and may be
used to satisfy experience requirements, but







such courses will not reduce the number of
credit hours required in the upper division at
the University of Florida to earn a degree.
Courses completed with grades of D or high-
er at other regionally accredited institutions
which reasonably parallel the curriculum at the
University of Florida will be accepted for trans-
fer credit as hours earned. It is the prerogative
of the student's upper division college to deter-
mine how transfer credit satisfies the specific
degree's course requirements. Students are
required to submit final official transcripts from
all institutions attended prior to or during their
enrollment at UF. Failure to declare attendance
at another institution can invalidate admission
to the University of Florida and any credits or
degrees earned.
University of Florida degree-seeking stu-
dents must secure the approval of the dean of
their college prior to enrolling as a nondegree or
transient student at another institution. Tran-
sient student forms to be used for pre-approval
of transfer credit within the State University
System of Florida (SUS) are available from the
Office of the University Registrar in Criser Hall.




Auditing Courses
Auditing may be approved on a space-avail-
able basis. In addition to the payment of course
fees, the approvals of the instructor and dean of
the college offering the course are required.
Courses which are audited are not reflected on
the University of Florida academic transcript.
Florida residents who are sixty years of age or
older may receive a fee payment waiver. Proce-
dures for auditing courses are available from
the Office of the University Registrar.

Course Load Requirements
The minimum full-time load for all under-
graduate students is 12 credits. The minimum
full-time load for a six-week summer term is 6
and the twelve-week summer term is 12. Post-
baccalaureate students are considered under-
graduates. The minimum load for full-time
undergraduate student benefits from the Veter-
ans Administration or Social Security Adminis-
tration is 12 credits per semester.
University regulation allows a maximum
load of 15 credits for a student whose previous
term average was below a C. Some colleges
have differing maximum loads which are stated
in the college sections of this catalog.
Students with college approval may register
for less than the minimum or more than the
maximum load. After late registration, no stu-
dents will be permitted to drop below the mini-
mum load without successfully petitioning their
college dean.
Simultaneous enrollment in correspondence
courses or extension work at another college or
university is counted when computing the max-
imum but not the minimum course load.


REGISTRATION POLICIES


Dropping Courses
Students dropping courses after the pub-
lished deadline which are not approved for
exception through the petitions process will be
assigned grades of WF (withdrew failing). These
grades will be calculated as failing grades. Stu-
dents seeking an exception to this policy must
follow the appropriate petitions process.

Nondegree Registration

Visiting Students Attending UF:
Nondegree enrollment is restricted to partici-
pants in special programs, off-campus programs,
university-affiliated exchange programs, those
participants with nondegree educational objec-
tives at the university, and high school/college
dual-credit enrollment. (Special regulations gov-
ern high school/college dual enrollment for aca-
demically-advanced students in Florida high
schools. Refer to Time-Shortened Degree Oppor-
tunities for additional information.)
Regular undergraduate students in good
standing at another accredited collegiate institu-
tion may be permitted to enroll fulltime at the
university as nondegree transient students to
complete work to transfer back to the parent
institution. No evaluation will be made of work
previously completed, and it is the student's
responsibility to secure such approval as may be
required by the parent institution. Certification
to Social Security and Veterans Administration
programs also is the responsibility of the stu-
dent, who must request each institution to fur-
nish records.
Nondegree enrollment is subject to the avail-
ability of faculty, space, and facilities. No appli-
cation for admission is required; the appropriate
forms for nondegree enrollment should be
requested from the Office of the University Reg-
istrar in Criser Hall. Priority for nondegree
enrollment is given to University of Florida
employees and to permanent residents of the
Gainesville area whose nondegree educational
objectives cannot be met at another institution.
Nondegree students are subject to the fol-
lowing restrictions:
Course enrollment requires the approval of
the college at the beginning of each term. The
college of enrollment has the authority to ter-
minate a continuing nondegree student's
enrollment prior to registration for any term.
As a general rule, a student may register as a
nondegree student for one term only.
Nondegree students are ineligible for
advance registration.
Registration for the fall or spring term is
not permitted until the third day of classes
in the term for which the student wishes to
enroll. Nondegree registration must be com-
pleted before 4:00 p.m. on the last day of
Late Registration; failure to register by that
deadline will result in the assessment of a
late registration fee.
The same grading system is applicable to
degree and nondegree students. Credit
earned while on nondegree status will not be
applicable to a University of Florida degree


except by subsequent admission to degree
status and successful petition for application
of such credit to the degree. Authorization to
enroll as a nondegree student in no way
implies future approval for admission as a
degree-seeking student at the university. To
be considered for degree-seeking enroll-
ment, nondegree students must apply for
admission.
Nondegree enrollment status will be
denied any student under suspension from a
postsecondary institution or not in good
standing at any institution previously
enrolled, including the University of Florida,
even if the student has subsequently attend-
ed another institution. Nondegree students
are subject to other regulations and restric-
tions which may be imposed by the college
or department in which they wish to enroll.
Nondegree students taking courses at the
university will be required to register for
and attend classes under the university cal-
endar. Nondegree students will pay appro-
priate UF fees based on course level and
number of credits for which they are regis-
tered.

UF Students Attending Other Schools:
University of Florida degree-seeking stu-
dents must secure the approval of the dean of
their college before enrolling as a nondegree or
transient at another institution. Transient stu-
dent forms to be used for pre-approval of trans-
fer credit within the State University System of
Florida (SUS) are available for the Office of the
University Registrar in Criser Hall.
Under normal circumstances, UF students
are not permitted to register at another institu-
tion for a course or its equivalent which is
offered at UF.

Petitions
When an academic regulation appears to
result in undue hardship, students may petition
for waiver of the regulation.
In general, petitions for waiver of an aca-
demic regulation for the current term should be
directed to the school or college in which the
student is enrolled. For example, petitions to
drop or add after the official drop/add period
should be presented to the school or college.
Exceptions to the minimum-maximum course
load regulation are to be presented to the school
or college for decision. Petitions approved by
the school or college must be reported to the
Office of the University Registrar before the
action is official.
All other petitions, including those for waiv-
er of academic regulations for prior terms,
should be presented to the Office of the Univer-
sity Registrar which will refer them to the Uni-
versity Senate Committee on Student Petitions.
Detailed information on procedures to peti-
tion is available from the student's college or
from the Office of the University Registrar.
The student seeking waiver of a regulation
through petition must remember that no com-
mittee on petitions can direct an instructor to
change a student's grade, nor can the Senate





REGISTRATION POLICIES


Committee require any college or school to grant
a degree by waiving any of these regulations.

Withdrawals
It is each student's responsibility to make
every effort to complete the full term at the uni-
versity. Any student who withdraws after the
deadline published in the University Calendar
shall be assigned grades of WF (withdrew fail-
ing) in all courses and will be subject to suspen-
sion and exclusion regulations.
Students on academic probation who with-
draw from the university prior to the final date
published in the calendar will continue on pro-
bation until their grade point deficit is reduced
to zero.
Students on University Committee on Stu-
dent Petitions probation must meet the terms of
probation specified by the committee.
Students who withdraw from all courses for
medical reasons should contact the Office for
Student Services, Division of Student Affairs,
for procedural information.

Administrative Provisions
Students are not authorized to attend class
unless they are officially registered or approved
to audit with evidence of having paid audit fees.
Following the end of the drop/add period, the
Office of the University Registrar provides evi-
dence of proper registration to instructors
through distribution of final class rolls and class
roll addenda.
Students who do not attend at least one of
the first two class meetings of a course or labo-
ratory in which they are registered, and who
have not contacted the department which offers
the course to indicate their intent, may be
dropped from the course if the department chair
deems this action necessary to provide space for
other students. The department will notify stu-
dents dropped from courses or laboratories
under this provision by posting a notice in the
department office. Students may request rein-
statement on a space-available basis if docu-
mented 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.

Attendance Policy
Students are responsible for satisfying the
entire range of academic objectives as defined
by the instructor. For students whose names
appear on the initial class roll, absences count
from the first class meeting.
In general, reasons which may be acceptable
for absence from class include: illness, serious
family emergencies, special curricular require-
ments (e.g., judging trips, field trips, profession-
al conferences), military obligation, severe
weather conditions, religious holidays, and
participation in official university sponsored


activities such as music performances, athletic
competition, or debate. Absences from class for
court-imposed legal obligations (e.g., jury duty
or subpoena) must be excused. Other sound rea-
sons may be offered by the student.

Twelve-Day Rule
Students who participate in athletic or
extracurricular activities are permitted without
penalty 12 scholastic day absences per semester
from the university. (A scholastic day is any
day on which regular class work is scheduled.)
Instructors must be flexible when scheduling
exams or other class assignments.
The 12-day rule applies to individual stu-
dents participating on an athletic or scholastic
team, for example. Consequently, a schedule
which requires absence of more than 12 days for
any group should be adjusted so that no indi-
vidual student is absent from campus for more
than 12 scholastic days.
Students who previously have been warned
for absences or unsatisfactory work in any
course should not incur additional absences,
even if they have not been absent from the uni-
versity for 12 scholastic days. It is the student's
responsibility to maintain satisfactory academic
performance and attendance.

Discretionary Review Days
The last two days of classes in the fall and.
spring semesters may serve as discretionary
review days. Instructors may, at their discre-
tion, 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.

Illness Policy
Students who are absent from classes or
examinations because of illness should contact
their professors. The student should contact his
or her college, by the published deadline, to
drop a course for medical reasons. After the col-
lege petition deadline, students may petition the
University Senate Committee on Student Peti-
tions to drop a course for medical reasons. A
student who must withdraw from all courses
for medical reasons should contact the Office for
Student Services.

Last Week of Classes
No final or comprehensive examinations,
projects, or term papers may be scheduled or be
assigned during the final week of class. Written
papers and/or oral presentations and periodic
testing announced at the beginning of the term
and in the course syllabus 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; hourly or major
exams are not. Take-home examinations assigned
as final examinations can be due no earlier than
the regularly scheduled final examination. Labo-
ratory sections are exempt from this policy.


Religious Holidays
The Board of Regents policy statement gov-
erns university policy regarding observance of
religious holidays:
Students shall, upon notifying their
instructor, be excused from class to observe
a religious holy day of their faith.
While students will be held responsible for
material covered in their absence, each stu-
dent shall be permitted a reasonable amount
of time.
No major test, major class event, or major
university activity shall be scheduled on a
major religious holiday.
Professors and university administration
shall in no way penalize students who are
absent from academic or social activities
because of religious observance.
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.






Student grades are permanently recorded in
the Office of the University Registrar.
Credit: The word credit as it is used in this
catalog refers to one semester hour, generally
representing one hour per week of lecture or
two or more hours per week of laboratory work.

GRADES AND GRADING POLICIES


Note: I* or N* grades recorded on the stu-
dent record indicate the non-punitive initial-
term receipt of an I or NG. A grade of I* or N* is
not considered a failing grade for the term in
which it is received, and it is not computed in
the grade point average; however, if the I* or N*
has not been changed by the end of the next
term for which the student is enrolled, it will be
counted as a failing grade and used in computa-
tion of the grade point average. I or NG grades
awarded to graduating students are calculated
immediately as failing grades. (The three sum-
mer terms are considered one term.)
An I* grade may be assigned at the discre-
tion of the instructor as an interim grade for a
course in which the student has (1) completed a
major portion of the course with a passing
grade, (2) been unable to complete course
requirements prior to the end of the term
because of extenuating circumstances, and (3)
obtained agreement from the instructor and
arranged for resolution of the I* grade. Instruc-
tors are not required to assign I* grades.


Grade Point Averaging
and Deficits
The term "average," as used in any universi-
ty regulation, refers to the grade point average
for work completed at the University of Florida.
Grades received at other institutions are NOT
averaged with grades received at the University
of Florida for the purpose of meeting university
average requirements. Other agencies and hon-
orary societies will compute averages in accor-
dance with their own standards and policies.
Averages are determined by computing the
ratio of grade points to semester hours attempt-
ed. For the grade point average computation
formula, please refer to the example below.
A grade point deficit is defined as the num-
ber of grade points below a "C" average on
hours attempted at the University of Florida. If
the grade point average is less than 2.0, there is
a grade point deficit.
Only grades higher than "C" will lower a
deficit. Every credit of C+ earned 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; and every credit of A
removes 2 deficit points.
Computation of a grade point deficit is
dependent upon first calculating the grade point
average. Multiply the total UF hours carried for
a grade by 2 (for 2.0 GPA) and subtract the total
grade points earned to determine the deficit.
For instance, if a student has taken 100 hours for
a grade, then 200 grade points are needed for a
2.0 GPA. If there are 196 grade points, there is a
4 point deficit.

Calculating Your Grade Point Average

Multiply grade value times the credit hours
for total grade points. Then divide the total
number of grade points by the number of


hours attempted. (Exclude hours attempted
under the S/U option.)

Calculating Your GPA and Deficit Points


A = 4.0
B+= 3.5
B = 3.0.
C+= 2.5

Since the GPA is less than 2.0, to figure the
grade point deficit:

11 total credit hours X 2.0 = 22 grade points
necessary for 2.0 GPA
22 16 (total grade points earned) = 6 deficit
points

Repeat Course Work
University of Florida course work which is
repeated is counted in the computation of a stu-
dent's UF grade point average as many times as
grades for that course are recorded, although
credit hours will be awarded only once. How-
ever, when a student earns a "C" or higher in a
course, repeats that course, and earns a "C" or
higher on the subsequent enrollment, the new
grade is not computed into the UF grade point
average nor are additional credits awarded.
Outcomes when repeated course work
involves only University of Florida course
work:

First grade lower Each grade computed

First grade of "C" Only first grade
or higher computed in GPA;

or higher for first attempt.


Grades received at other institutions will not
be averaged with grades received for course
work taken at the University of Florida. Repeat
course work taken at the University of Florida
will result in calculation of only the UF grade in
the UF grade point average, with credit earned
only once.

above.
In the case where all repeated course work
was taken at other institutions, no grades will
be calculated into the UF grade point average
and credit is awarded only once.
Upper division colleges may choose not to
accept grade points and hours earned from
lower level courses, if they are taken after the
student has received credit and grades for
advanced courses or exam credit in the same
field.

Satisfactory-Unsatisfactory
Grade Option
Subject to college degree program and
department guidelines, undergraduate students
may take elective course work and earn grades
of S (Satisfactory) or U (Unsatisfactory). Grades
earned under the S-U option do not carry grade
point values and are not computed in the Uni-
versity of Florida grade point average. Such
grades are included in a student's permanent
academic record and are reflected on the tran-
script. Students should note that other academic
institutions and agencies may interpret a grade
of "U" as a failing grade in their grade point
average computation.
Students choosing the S-U option must be in
good standing and may not be on University
academic probation. To elect the S-U option, stu-
dents must obtain approvals from the instructor
and department offering the course, as well as
the dean of their own college. They may elect the
S-U option for only one course each term; this
option is in addition to courses which are taught
only on a S-U basis. Courses taken to fulfill com-
munication or computation requirements (Gor-
don Rule) may not be taken S-U.
For Fall, Spring, and Summer C terms, the
deadline for electing the S-U option is 4:00 p.m.,
Friday, during the third week of classes. For
Summer A and Summer B terms, the deadline is
4:00 p.m., Wednesday, during the second week
of classes. Once the S-U option is approved, stu-
dents may not elect to convert back to a letter
grade.





ACADEMIC PROGRESS REGULATIONS


Academic Progress Policy
The University of Florida has a goal, the
graduation of every student who enters the uni-
versity as a freshman and every eligible student
transferring from a Florida community college.
To meet this goal, the number of places avail-
able in upper division programs must be
increased, either through expansion or through
more limited admissions of transfer students
not covered by the Articulation Agreement. The
criteria for admission to upper division academ-
ic programs will be the same for native students
and for eligible community college transfer stu-
dents.
At their option, colleges may identify as
majors native (first-time-in-college, FTIC) stu-
dents with freshman or sophomore designa-
tions. Such students will carry college
designations and major designations. Students
seeking majors in colleges which do not admit
freshmen or sophomores will carry an LS desig-
nation along with the designation of their prob-
able major. Students interested in majors in
colleges which admit freshmen and sophomores
may choose either the college designation or the
LS designation. The major designation will
remain the same for both. An LS "undecided"
designation will be used for students undecided
about their majors.
Every college will delineate upper and lower
level performance standards at 30, 45, and 60
hours for each academic program or group of
academic programs. These published perfor-
mance standards may include grade point aver-
ages, grades in required prerequisite or
pre-professional courses, auditions, portfolios,
etc., and for teacher education curricula, SAT or
ACT scores.
Students meeting or exceeding the upper
level standard will be on track for entrance to
their academic program of choice. The perfor-
mance standard set for 60 hours assures accep-
tance into major programs for native (FTIC)
students who have passed all CLAST subtests
and for community college transfer students
with A.A. degrees who have passed all CLAST
subtests. Community college transfer students
claiming completion of the A.A. degree with
CLAST who are admitted and subsequently are
found to be without the degree and CLAST will
revert to 0 UF (non-degree) category. They will
be required to reapply for admission to the col-
lege of choice.
Students falling between the upper and
lower level standards at the 30- and 45-hour
benchmarks will be advised of academic weak-
nesses that may inhibit their pursuit of the pro-
gram of choice. Such students also will be
advised of alternative programs for which their
work might qualify them.
Students whose academic performance falls
below the lower benchmark levels at 30 or 45
hours automatically will be returned to the LS
"change" designation through action of the


Office of the University Registrar. These stu-
dents will be notified by their college and/or
the Academic Advisement Center that they are
not on track for the academic program of their
choice. They will be advised of alternative pro-
grams for which their grade point averages and
courses might qualify them. The Academic
Advisement Center will endeavor to match the'
performance of such students with other major
programs.
Alternatively, colleges may choose to utilize
a college "change" designation for students
falling below lower benchmark levels at 30 or 45
hours, providing the benchmarks for the college
"change" designation are no lower than the
lowest benchmarks acceptable in the college. A
student can be kept in the college "change" cate-
gory for no more than one semester. If the stu-
dent's performance does not meet benchmark
levels at the end of one semester, the student
will be returned to the LS "change" category.
Students who fall below lower level perfor-
mance standards at 60 hours and those students
whose performance falls between the upper and
lower performance levels who cannot be accom-
modated by the major of their choice also will
be returned to the LS "change" designation.
Such students will be given one additional
semester to find acceptance into a major pro-
gram. In exceptional cases, the director of advis-
ing may authorize an additional semester.

Good Standing
The University of Florida policies on aca-
demic standing, probation, and suspension are
based on the possibility that a student can over-
come academic difficulty and make appropriate
progress toward a degree.
The University of Florida has determined
that a student is in good standing if he or she is
eligible to continue or to re-enroll in the univer-
sity even if on probation.

Regulation of Academic Standards
The University of Florida's Senate establish-
es regulations for academic probation and sus-
pension to enforce the academic standards of
the university and to require both the mainte-
nance of grade point averages and reasonable
conformance to a program of study. Any col-
lege of the university may specify additional
academic standards, and students are responsi-
ble for observing the regulations pertaining to
these standards.
The probation, suspension and exclusion
regulations that apply to undergraduate stu-
dents also apply to postbaccalaureate students.
All actions taken under these regulations shall
be reflected by appropriate permanent notations
on the student's academic record.

Probation
The intent of academic probation is to serve
notice formally that a student may not be mak-
ing satisfactory progress. The conditions of aca-
demic probation are intended to specify the
achievement standards required to graduate; to


recognize unsatisfactory performance at an
early date; to make clear to the student and the
administration the shortcomings of the stu-
dent's academic achievements; to provide occa-
sion for counseling; and to give students whose
ultimate success is in question further opportu-
nity to demonstrate their ability to meet aca-
demic expectations.
Students may be placed on probation by
their college for failure to maintain normal
academic progress in their degree program.
College probation will be removed when the
college determines that satisfactory academ-
ic progress has been demonstrated.
Undergraduate students with less than a
2.0 cumulative grade point average for Uni-
versity of Florida course work and a grade
point deficit of less than 15 shall be placed
on academic probation.
Academic probation shall be continued for
all undergraduate students as long as they
have a grade point deficit of less than 15. It
will be removed when the grade point
deficit has been reduced to zero. Should the
grade point deficit increase to more than 15,
the student will be suspended from the uni-
versity.

Suspension
Academic suspension from the university
denies registration privileges to students who
will not ultimately graduate if they continue at
their current level of academic achievement.
Academic suspensions identify students whose
performance indicates that they will not fulfill
graduation requirements and encourages stu-
dents to leave the university to investigate their
alternatives as soon as a high probability of fail-
ure is evident.
Students with a grade point deficit of 15 or
more in their University of Florida course
work shall be suspended from the Univesity
for a minimum of one term and their
advance registration is canceled. Students
who are suspended will not be scheduled to
register for a future term unless they have
filed an application for readmission by the
published deadline and been approved for
readmission.
Students re-enrolling after an initial sus-
pension will be placed on final scholarship
probation. If the grade point deficit is still 15
or more at the end of the term, students will
be permanently suspended without possibil-
ity of registering, except by decision of the
University Senate Committee on Student
Petitions or by successful petition to re-
enroll under the Fresh Start Program.
Any courses taken at another institution
while on suspension from the University of
Florida, including extension or correspon-
dence courses, will not be counted as credit
earned toward a degree at the University of
Florida. However, a student suspended for
academic reasons who subsequently earns
an Associate of Arts degree from an accredit-
ed Florida public community college may,
upon approved readmission, appeal to the
University Committee on Student Petitions





DEGREES AND GRADUATION


for acceptance of transfer credit earned. The
Petitions Committee may, upon the recom-
mendation of the college, approve transfer of
that credit.

Exclusion
Students who have not been admitted to an
upper division degree program by 60 hours
earned will be given one additional semester to
be admitted into an upper division college
major. Subsequent registration in the LS
"change" classification will not be permitted. In
exceptional cases, the director of advising may
authorize an additional semester.
Students whose academic performance falls
below the lower benchmark level for their major
at 30 or 45 hours earned will be assigned the LS
"change" classification for one term. Such stu-
dents who have not qualified for a major by the
end of that term will be excluded from further
registration.
Students who have not successfully complet-
ed the College Level Academic Skills Test
(CLAST) or the Communication-Computation
Requirements (Gordon Rule) by the completion
of 60 semester hours of credit are ineligible for
admission into an upper division degree pro-
gram until those requirements have been satis-
fied.
Upper division colleges may choose not to
consider students for admission to and may
deny continuation in an upper division degree
program if they fail to maintain reasonable aca-
demic progress, as specified by the college or
department.




The following requirements apply to under-
graduate degrees. Requirements for graduate
and professional degrees in the Graduate School
and the colleges of Law, Medicine, Dentistry,
and Veterinary Medicine are listed in the indi-
vidual graduate or professional catalogs.

Application for Degree: Students must file an
application for degree with the Office of the
University Registrar by the deadline published
in the university calendar. Students must apply
in the term in which they expect to graduate,
regardless of applications in previous terms. All
requirements for the degree must be completed
as of the date of commencement.

Catalog Year: Catalog year determines the set of
academic requirements (general education and
the major) which must be fulfilled for gradua-
tion. Students graduate under the catalog in
effect at the time of their initial undergraduate
enrollment at UF, a Florida public community
college, or other Florida state institution, pro-
vided they maintain continuous enrollment.


Students who do not maintain continuous
enrollment will be assigned the catalog in effect
at the time enrollment is resumed. Students
with the approval of their college dean's office
may opt to graduate under the requirements of
a later catalog, but they must fulfill all gradua-
tion requirements from that alternate catalog
year.

College Dean's Certification: The dean of the col-
lege certifies that all requirements have been
completed and that the student is recommended
by the faculty.

College Level Academic Skills Test: Students seek-
ing admission to upper division must satisfacto-
rily complete the College Level Academic Skills
Test (CLAST). Refer to the College Level Aca-
demic Skills Test section for further information.

Completion Deadline To Receive a Degree:
all residence work required for graduation
must be completed at least 24 hours prior to the
scheduled meeting of the college faculty voting
on the candidates for degrees.
all extension work must be completed at
least two weeks prior to the scheduled meeting
of the college faculty voting on the candidates
for degrees.

Continuous Enrollment: Undergraduate students
who register for and complete at least one
course for one term in an academic year are con-
tinuously enrolled.

Curriculum Requirements: Students must com-
plete all program requirements established by
their college, major department, and minor pro-
gram of study (if applicable). NOTE: Minors are
awarded only in conjunction with a certified
major.

Extension Work Restrictions: (Note: Extension
work as referenced below includes both exten-
sion classes and correspondence study.)
Students may take a maximum of 12
extension credits during any academic year.
Students may not take more than 9 exten-
sion credits during a semester.
No more than 12 of the last 36 credits nec-
essary for a baccalaureate degree may be
extension work.
Simultaneous registration in on-campus
and extension work requires approval of the
dean of the college.
No more than one-fourth of the total credit
required for a degree may be extension
work.
Consult the appropriate section of this cat-
alog or consult with the dean of the college
concerned for further information.

Gordon Rule (Communication and Computation
Requirement): Students must complete with


grades of C or higher and prior to earning 60
semester credits, 12 credits in designated cours-
es that involve substantial writing (a total of
24,000 words) and 6 credits of course work that
involve numerical analyses. Refer to the Com-
munication and Computation Requirement sec-
tion for further information.

Grade Point Average: To graduate, students must
have a C average (2.0) or better in all credits
required toward that degree and a C average
(2.0) in all courses attempted at the University
of Florida.

Pending Charge of Academic Dishonesty or Code of
Student Conduct Violation: No degree will be
conferred if a charge of academic dishonesty or
conduct violation is pending where the penalty
could be suspension, expulsion, failing grade, or
any combination of the above, until such time as
the charge is resolved and degree requirements
are met.

Repeat Course Work: Credit will be allowed only
once for course work which is repeated. Refer to
Repeat Course Work on page 31. In addition,
students who have taken an advanced level
course may not receive credit for completion of
a subsequent lower level course, as determined
by their college.

Residence Requirements:
The minimum residence requirement for
the baccalaureate degree is two semesters.
Students are required to complete the last
30 credits toward the baccalaureate degree in
residence at the college from which the student
will graduate.

Summer Term Enrollment: Students who enter a
university in the State University System with
fewer than 60 credits must earn at least 9 credits
prior to graduation during summer terms at
State University System institutions. Credit
earned through any of the "study abroad" pro-
grams sponsored by the University of Florida
counts toward. satisfaction of the summer term
enrollment requirement.

Time-Shortened Degree Opportunities: A variety of
programs may enable students to shorten the
time necessary for completion of their degree
requirements. These opportunities include sev-
eral credit by examination programs and other
options. Refer to the section Time-Shortened
Degree Opportunities and the college sections
for additional information.

Two Degrees: Two different degrees of the same
rank, e.g., B.A. and B.S., may be conferred upon
an individual provided that the second
degree represents at least 30 credits of addition-
al work, and fulfills curriculum and residence
requirements.








Time-Shortened Degree
Opportunities

The University of Florida provides numer-
ous opportunities by which students may accel-
erate their academic careers and reduce the
overall length of time spent in completing
degree requirements. These opportunities are
explained below:

Early Admission:
The Early Admission program allows
superior students admission to the uni-
versity following completion of the
junior year in high school. Applications
are encouraged and will be considered
on an individual basis by the Admissions
Committee. For 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.
Dual Credit Enrollment:
Dual Enrollment refers to a student tak-
ing on-campus courses simultaneously at
both the University of Florida and anoth-
er 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 nec-
essary course materials on a lend-return
basis. There must be an articulation
agreement between the home county
school board, Developmental Research
School or other secondary school in com-
pliance with S.229.808 and conducting a
secondary curriculum pursuant to
S.232.246, and the University of Florida.
This agreement should describe record-
ing of grades and payment for and dis-
position of instructional materials.
Qualified high school students will be
enrolled as nondegree students and cred-
its earned prior to high school gradua-
tion may subsequently be accepted for
advanced standing and degree-credit
when the student is admitted to the
university.
For more information, high school stu-
dents may refer to Student Academic
Regulations (especially the sections on
Dual Enrollment, Nondegree Registra-
tion, and Classification of Students).
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.
Year-Round Attendance:
Students attending the university every
semester, including summer sessions,
may advance their graduation day by as
much as two semesters.


Credit by Examination:
A student may participate in a variety of
credit by examination programs in order
to earn credit toward a degree awarded
by the University of Florida. Credit
received from one examination program
may not be duplicated by another. A
maximum of 30 semester hours may be
earned from one or more of the following
programs.
International Baccalaureate Program: The uni-
versity awards credit for International Baccalau-
reate higher and subsidiary level subjects. Six
semester hours of appropriate credit will be
granted for each higher level exam of 5 or high-
er. Three semester hours of credit will be given
for higher level exam scores of 4. Subsidiary
exams with scores of 5 or higher will be award-
ed three semester hours of credit. Subsidiary

College Level Examination Program (CLEP):
The College Level Examination Program is
another type of credit by examination opportu-
nity sponsored by the College Entrance Exami-
nation Board. By presenting appropriate scores,
students may receive as many as 30 semester
hours credit toward graduation. Their scores on


the CLEP general examinations must meet the
minimums established by the State University
System. In addition, students who plan to apply
for credit must do so before enrolling or, at the
latest, prior to the end of their first term at the
university. CLEP testing is periodically avail-
able on campus and is administered by the
Office of Instructional Resources.
In accordance with the articulation agree-
ment (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 exami-
nation in English. Experience has shown that
those who score below the 75th percentile are
often handicapped because they have not had
college courses in composition. However, those

students who do decide to take the CLEP
English examination are required to take the
option that includes an essay examination so
that their scores will be at least partially based
on a writing sample.
Additional credit may be awarded for satis-
factory scores on certain CLEP subject area
examinations. If English Subject Examinations
(Freshman English or English 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 guaran-
tee that credit will be received for English. A
favorable review must be received on the essay
portion of the exam. A minimum score of 51 is
required for College Composition and a mini-
mum 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.
Department Examinations: Departments may,
at their 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.









Academic Advisement

Mission
The University of Florida is committed to
the concept of a strong program of quality aca-
demic advising for all of its students. The mis-
sion of academic advising is to serve as an
ongoing process which assists students in the
attainment of their educational goals through
the development and evaluation of their educa-
tional plans. To progress satisfactorily through
a degree program, students must have available
not only accurate information about require-
ments and procedures tailored to individual
educational needs, but also a knowledgeable,
caring adviser capable of reducing the system to
human scale. The advising system at the Uni-
versity of Florida is a diverse and often complex
one, involving personnel at the university, col-
lege, or school and departmental levels. This
multifaceted process is the responsibility of both
student and adviser.
Specifically, this mission can be accom-
plished by advisers helping students to coordi-
nate their learning experiences through the
planning of their educational and career objec-
tives commensurate with their abilities and the
review of their academic progress. Further,
advisement should assist students to clarify
their life/career goals and the consequences of
these goals by facilitating self-assessment and
helping students to develop an educational
plan. Finally, academic advising should act as a
source of referral to other campus agencies.

University Responsibilities

The faculty, administration, and staff of the
University of Florida share a responsibility to
provide accurate information and effective
advisement to students. The University of Flori-
da through the Office of the Provost, is respon-
sible for:
ensuring that academic advising is fully
recognized, emphasized, duly supported by
budget and resources, and periodically eval-
uated;
providing students, faculty, and other
advising staff with accurate information in
the catalog, Schedule of Courses, and other
publications;
coordinating the advising efforts of the
various colleges and schools;
synchronizing advising with other units
on campus, such as the Career Resource


Center, Counseling Center, Office of Instruc-
tional Resources, Office of the University
Registrar, and the Office for Student Finan-
cial Affairs.

The University of Florida through the Uni-
versity Advising Center is responsible for:
acting as an information and referral cen-
ter to provide faculty advisers and students
with timely and accurate information on
university-wide requirements, policies,
procedures, and referrals to appropriate ser-
vices;
providing periodic in-service training and
development from which faculty and profes-
sional advisers can receive accurate informa-
tion on academic policies and procedures;
providing primary academic advising for
undeclared majors;
coordinating with the academic units to
advise and to provide counseling services
for students on academic probation;
keeping an up-to-date list of academic
coordinators for each program to direct stu-
dents to the correct adviser;
maintaining records of students' academic
progress and advising conferences;
reviewing and evaluating the academic
advising program.

College/School and Department
Responsibilities

The dean of each college or school is ulti-
mately responsible for ensuring that adequate
advisement is available and accessible to all stu-
dents within the college or school. To fulfill that
responsibility, each dean:
in consultation with the faculty and the
University Advising Center, shall select an
advisement model in accordance with the
Univeristy of Florida mission and consistent
with student needs and program characteris-
tics of the college;
shall be responsible for providing the
resources and faculty incentives necessary
for the maintenance of an effective and effi-
cient advisement network;
shall be responsible for assuring that stu-

dent advisement is part of the regular work-
load of every full-time faculty member. This
advising may include meeting individually
with students to provide information about
course requirements and student progress,
and working with students on independent


projects of student and faculty interest.
Deans and/or department chairs may, how-
ever, recognize differential advising respon-
sibilities by appropriate assignment of
duties.
shall see that departments and programs
make available to students brochures, hand-
books, and/or checklists of major require-
ments to help acquaint them with
departmental requirements and opportunities.

Student Responsibilities

Students are ultimately responsible for
knowing and fulfilling all university, college,
and major requirements for graduation, as stat-
ed in the catalog. In order to meet that goal they
are responsible for:
attending the summer Preview or other
orientation program prior to their first
semester of attendance;
taking full advantage of the opportunities
for academic advisement provided by the
various university offices and programs;
declaring a major area of interest, as soon
as one crystallizes, to ensure proper advise-
ment.
conferring with their adviser on a regular
basis:
students entering their major should
see an adviser upon acceptance. Further
advisement should be on an as-needed
basis;
students in academic difficulty (i.e.,
below a 2.0 GPA) should see an adviser
each term;
students not yet in a major should see
an adviser on a regular basis to assist
them in the decision of a choice of major;
students who at any time are confused
about academic requirements or their
progress toward a degree, are welcome
and encouraged to see an adviser;
students should maintain their own per-
sonal academic records, including the cata-
log of their year of admission, transcripts,
degree audits, evaluation of transfer work,
and notes of previous advising visits;
students can evaluate (if desired) the aca-
demic advising programs and individual
advisers by filling out forms provided by the
University Advising Center or by writing to
the department chair, the director of the
advising center, or the individual responsi-
ble for the respective academic advising
unit.

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

General Information For Freshmen
and Sophomores
Entering freshmen are classified LS. Stu-
dents 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 or fall
term 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 pro-
grams. Notices concerning this orientation are
mailed in the late spring to those students who
have been admitted by the University Office of
Admissions. At these summer registration pro-
grams, students and parents attend sessions
relating to career choice, student activities, help-
ing 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
registration 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 sum-
mer A semesters also will have access to advise-
ment conferences as part of the registration
period prior to classes.
In the latter part of each semester students
register for their next term. Again academic
advisers are available to discuss course selec-
tion. 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 main-
taining 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 aca-
demic advisers available for discussion of the
problem. Advisers also are available during reg-
ular business hours in the Academic Advise-
ment 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) are required to take the College
Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST). A student
may take the CLAST at any time after comple-
tion of 18 credit hours. The awarding of AA cer-
tificates and registration after earning 60 hours
are contingent upon students passing all sub-
tests of the CLAST.

Required Courses in
Communication and
Computation Skills (Gordon Rule)
Students must complete (with grades of C or
higher) 12 hours in designated courses that
involve substantial writing. This requirement
can be met by selecting at least 12 hours from
among those designated Composition, Litera-
ture and the Arts, Historical and Philosophical
Studies, International Studies and Diversity,
Social and Behavioral Sciences General Educa-
tion courses which are listed in the current
Schedule of Courses. CLEP credit may not be
used to satisfy the writing requirement. In addi-
tion, each student must complete with grades of
C or higher six hours of courses that involve
computational skills. Three of these hours must
be in a mathematics course with the remaining
three in acceptable courses in mathematics,
statistics, computer science, or PHI 2100, PHI
3130 or EGM 3311. The courses acceptable for
the requirement are identical to those autho-
rized for the General Education Mathematical
Sciences Requirement. Any student satisfying
College-Level Examination Program (CLEP)
requirements in mathematics for post-admission
exemptions of course work shall be allowed to
exempt three (3) hours of mathematics required
by this rule.
This requirement is sometimes called the
Gordon Rule, a reference to its history in the
Florida State Legislature.

General Education
The General Education program offers stu-
dents an opportunity to develop as individuals
and as members of society and to gain an appre-
ciation of the world around them. The pro-
gram's goals are to introduce students to the
major areas of academic study and to help stu-
dents develop intellectual maturity.
Under the General Education program, stu-
dents will take courses in the following areas:

Composition (C)-The ability to read and to
think critically is essential to learning and to
developing as a productive member of society.


Writing is a mode of thinking that involves
making choices and ordering those choices
effectively.
Courses in composition can be found in the
English department.

Literature and the Arts (L)-Familiarity
with various forms of the arts provides students
with an appreciation of the human condition
and the cultural and artistic values of others.
Courses in this area can be found extensive-
ly, although not exclusively, in the departments
of Art, Germanic & Slavic Languages & Litera-
tures, Classics, African & Asian Languages &
Literatures, English, Music, and Romance Lan-
guages & Literatures.

Historical and Philosophical Studies (H)-
By exploring the nature of history and culture,
students learn to think critically about the past
and about traditions and values that have
shaped our world. Students also will address
moral and ethical issues and will examine the
evolution of science, society, and culture.
Courses in this area can be found extensive-
ly, although not exclusively, in the departments
of History, Religion, Philosophy, Anthropology,
Architecture, and Germanic & Slavic Languages
& Literatures.

International Studies and Diversity (I)-
The General Education program at UF recog-
nizes that, beyond the basic areas of academic
study, there are other contexts of knowing: e.g.,
language, gender, culture, race, ethnicity, and
class. The International Studies and Diversity
requirement seeks to make students aware that
the United States is part of a world community;
to provide them with the means to understand
the significance of world events; and to help
them develop an appreciation for diversity
through the study of nations, gender, culture,
race, ethnicity, and class.
Courses in this area can be found extensive-
ly, although not exclusively, in the departments
of History, Classics, African & Asian Languages
& Literatures, Romance Languages & Litera-
tures, Germanic & Slavic Languages & Litera-
tures, Art, Anthropology, Political Science,
Religion, Sociology, and English.

Social and Behavioral Sciences (S)-In this
area, students explore human behavior in its
social context, analyze the structure of societies,
cultures, and institutions, and assess the pro-
cesses by which individuals and groups allocate
resources.
Courses in this area can be found extensive-
ly, although not exclusively, in the departments
of Psychology, Political Science, Anthropology,
Criminal Justice, Geography, and Sociology.

Mathematical Sciences (M)-By taking
courses in mathematical sciences students
acquire skills in logic, inductive and deductive
reasoning, and abstract and quantitative think-
ing. The mathematical sciences also teach stu-
dents to reason critically, think creatively, assess
evidence, and form conclusions based on evi-
dence.






LOWER DIVISION REQUIREMENTS


Courses in this mathematical sciences can be
found in the departments of Mathematics,
Statistics, Computer & Information Sciences,
Philosophy, and Aerospace Engineering,
Mechanics & Engineering Science.

Physical (P) and Biological (B) Sciences-
By introducing students to the basic concepts of
science and the scientific method, courses in
physical and biological sciences enhance stu-
dent awareness of scientific developments and
their impact on society and the environment.
Courses in this area can be found extensive-
ly, although not exclusively, in the departments
of Physics, Zoology, Botany, Geology, Psycholo-
gy, Chemistry, Astronomy, Environmental
Engineering, Geography, Soil Science, and Ento-
mology & Nematology.

The course offerings section of the Sched-
ule of Courses lists specific courses for each
category, designated by code: i.e., C = Compo-
sition, I = International Studies & Diversity,
etc., in the column headed "G.E."

STUDENTS WHO ENTERED THE

Please note the following:
(1) The General Education Program permits
students to take courses at the 1000, 2000, 3000,
or 4000 level, and it also allows them to pursue
completion of the requirements throughout
their undergraduate experience.
(2) First-year students are generally advised
to take introductory classes to complete area
requirements. Those who have the academic
background and the interest, however, are
encouraged to take more advanced level classes,
but they should consult an academic adviser.
(3) Requirements M (Mathematical Sci-
ences), P (Physical Sciences), and B (Biological
Sciences) include the study of pure science (e.g.,
physics, chemistry, and calculus) and their tech-
nological applications (e.g., nuclear energy,
environmental science, and computer theory).
Students are encouraged to pursue a balanced
program of pure and applied sciences, where
possible, to complete these two area require-
ments.
(4) All general education courses are listed
at the back of the catalog under departmental
course listings. Courses that have been
approved for general education have received a
letter designation after the course title, which
corresponds to the first letter of the category.
For example: AMH 2010, United States to 1877
(H), fulfills 3 credits in the historical and philo-
sophical studies category.
(5) Not all students have to take ENC 1101
to complete the composition requirement, espe-
cially those who receive a high score on the ver-
bal portion of the SAT examination. We ask that
you discuss this with an academic adviser.
(6) Advanced Placement (AP) credit can be
counted toward completion of the General Edu-
cation requirements.

Associate of Arts Certificate

Although not required, students may receive
an AA certificate. The Associate of Arts only
will be awarded at a time prior to the awarding
of a bachelor's degree. The College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences awards the Associate of Arts
certificate for the university.
The Associate of Arts certificate will be
awarded upon satisfactory completion of:
64 credits (At least 36 of the credits must
have been completed at the University of
Florida.)

Choice of Major: Impact on
General Education

Students are encouraged to follow a pro-
gram of General Education appropriate for their
particular baccalaureate goal. In other words,
students' General Education courses should be
chosen with an eye to their choice of major and
various limits set by each major. Additionally,
each major has established benchmark stan-
dards for normal progress toward acceptance
into that program. Recommended General Edu-
cation courses and standards for admission for
each college or school may be found beginning
on the catalog page indicated.

LOWER DIVISION REQUIREMENTS


After the deadline students may petition
to drop a course provided they can docu-
ment sufficient reasons to drop, usually
hardship or medical condition occurring
after the deadline.
Failure to attend a class will not be accept-
ed 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. With-
drawal is subject to the published catalog dead-
lines.
Student Petitions: A student who feels that
university regulations cause a particular hard-
ship or injustice may petition for waiver of the
regulation. Information on procedures for sub-
mitting such a petition is available in 215 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 permis-
sion to be granted, the student must be in good
academic standing and may not apply more
than 6 semester hours of correspondence credit
toward a university degree.
Class Attendance: The university recognizes
the right of the individual professor to make
attendance mandatory where appropriate. After
due warning, professors may suspend students
with failing grades from individual courses for
excessive absences.
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 Place-
ment 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' programs
because the specific course requirements of their
majors are not satisfied by general subject mat-
ter credit.
Dean's List: At the end of the fall and spring
terms, the Dean's List regularly recognizes out-
standing academic achievement. Inclusion on
the list is awarded to 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
prepare a student for law school, the beginning
law student must possess the fundamental skills
necessary for effective oral and written commu-


nication. The student who lacks writing skills
should study advanced English composition.
Any course that tests one's ability to organize a
body of data and reason from it will be beneficial.
PreLaw students should consult the current
PreLaw Handbook available from the Law
School Admission Council and the Association
of American Law Schools which is available in
most bookstores.
Freshmen and transfer students planning
careers in law should so indicate on their regis-
tration student data sheets each term. In addi-
tion to serving as a central source of information
on all matters relating to prelaw advisement, the
Office of Preprofessional Education 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 premedi-
cal, predental, or preoptometry student to major
in any program offered by any department or
college within the university.
Students planning careers in medicine, den-
tistry, and optometry should so indicate on their
registration student data sheets each term. In
order to inform themselves fully of require-
ments, procedures, and other factors relating to
preprofession preparation, students should
obtain a current copy of the Preprofessional
Handbook available through the Office of Pre-
professional Education, 358 Little Hall.
In addition to serving as a central source of
information on all matters pertaining to the pre-
professional curricula, the Office of Preprofes-
sional Education acts as a clearinghouse for
information and application forms relating to
medical, dental, and optometry school require-
ments and admission procedures. The office
serves as a central office for collecting and for-
warding letters of evaluation and certification to
the professional schools selected by the appli-
cants.
The preprofessional student must satisfy the
following core requirements (usually prior to
application to professional schools):

Required Core Courses:

A complete general chemistry sequence
terminating with CHM 2046-2046L, or
CHM 2051C.
A complete organic chemistry sequence
terminating with CHM 3211-CHM
3211L, or CHM 3216 and CHM 3216L.
At least 8 semester credits in biology
(usually BSC 2010-BSC 2010L, and BSC
2011-2011L).


A complete physics sequence (terminat-
ing with PHY 3054 and PHY 3056L or
PHY 3042).
One year of college mathematics includ-
ing at least one term of analytic geometry
and calculus (MAC 3311) and at least one
semester of statistics (STA 3023).
One year of college-level English.
These courses will also meet the basic
requirements for schools of chiropractic, osteo-
pathic, and podiatric medicine.
Students should consult the catalogs of the
schools to which they intend to apply for any
additional requirements or suggested courses. A
list of suggested elective courses for preprofes-
sional students is available in the Office of Pre-
professional Education. The list includes
courses in biochemistry, chemistry, microbiolo-
gy, and zoology which should be taken in addi-
tion to the required courses.
Besides meeting the preprofessional course
requirements, students are urged to gain some
experience in the health care delivery environ-
ment of their career choice. Such experience
may be obtained by participation in the pro-
grams of the National Preprofessional Honor
Society (Alpha Epsilon Delta), the Minority Pre-
professional Association (MPA), and the Pre-
professional Service Organization (PSO) at the
University of Florida. More details about these
programs and applications are available at the
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 col-
lege.
CLEP Credit: It is generally agreed that
receipt of CLEP credit does not imply the equiv-
alent of educational experience received in any
university-level course; therefore students
should plan on taking courses in every area in
which they have been granted CLEP credit,
especially in English. Unless advised otherwise,
begin with introductory level courses or courses
at the 2000 level for which you are certain that
you possess the prerequisites.

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 Preprofes-
sional 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.
4th Year: Finish major requirements and addi-
tional preprofessional classes.
Fall and Spring: Interview with pro-
fessional schools. Maintain good GPA
and course loads.






LOWER DIVISION REQUIREMENTS


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 courses do not enhance
your record. Honors courses are recommended
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 academ-
ic performance. Invitations are sent after admis-
sion to the university to all students who have
scored 1280 or above on the Scholastic Aptitude
Test, or a 30 composite on the Enhanced Ameri-
can 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.
Students who do not qualify may apply for
admission into the program in the spring of
their first year after demonstrating their aca-
demic capabilities during the fall semester.
Honors requirements are not in addition to Gen-
eral 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, sat-
isfy the General Education Requirement, 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 Pro-
gram becomes the responsibility of the depart-
ment in which the student pursues the major
course of study. The departmental honors coor-
dinator 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 graduation 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 stu-
dent will be recommended for high or highest
honors.


Eligibility for graduation with honors: Stu-
dents who became juniors (a classification of
"3") in Fall 1991 or later are eligible for the
honors designations established in the 1991-92
and following catalogs. Students who
achieved junior status prior to Fall 1991 follow
the honors designations established in the
1990-91 catalog.

Office of Minority Affairs
The Office of Minority Affairs coordinates
and directs support services for all minority stu-
dents, including participants in the federally-
funded Special Services Program, and other
specially-admitted students at the University of
Florida. This office works in close coordination
with the Office of Admissions and minority
high school and community college students
and counselors to facilitate the admission of
minority students into the University of Florida.
Once the students are admitted, this office
continues to assist them by providing academic
counseling, advocacy, and tutoring. OMASP
works in close cooperation with the University
Advisement Center, which leads the coordina-
tion of all advising services across campus,
including supplementing and providing train-
ing and information to all special advising pro-
grams.
OMASP strives to facilitate the minority stu-
dents' successful negotiation of any and all pro-
cesses of the University of Florida and to
stimulate their use of and participation in
resources and enriching activities at the univer-
sity that might impinge on the academic
progress of the student. Tutors are provided in
math and English, and referrals are made and
tutoring arranged in other areas through the
O.I.R. Teaching Center, the Reading and Writ-
ing Center, and other supportive campus-wide
offices. The Office of Minority Affairs helps stu-
dents develop coping and social adjustment
skills by providing positive association with
successful peers and role models. These individ-
uals assist students in making a smooth transi-
tion to the university environment. Other
supportive services offered or arranged include
recruitment, retention workshops and seminars,
academic progress monitoring, orientation pro-
grams, research and evaluation activities, and
educational and social activities.
The Office of Minority Affairs, which is
housed in 453 Little Hall (392-0788), works in
close coordination with other university ser-
vices and offices to plan and implement pro-
grams designed to increase retention and
graduation at the University of Florida.

Other Counseling Services
In addition to assistance from academic
advisers (358 Little Hall), students may find that
one or more of the following offices can be of
assistance to solve personal problems, career
selection problems, or problems relating to defi-
ciencies in academic skills. The Student Affairs


section of this catalog describes their specific
services.
Reading and Writing Center (2109 TUR)
Speech and Hearing Center (442 DAU)
Student Health Care Center (Infirmary)
Career Resource Center (G-1 JWRU)
The Office of International Studies and Programs
provides assistance for students wanting to
expand their educational experience by study-
ing outside the United States. Programs are
available throughout the world for study either
during the academic year or the summer. Inter-
ested students should contact the Office of Inter-
national Studies and Programs in 123 Tigert for
information on eligibility, availability, and
scholarship possibilities.
The Counseling Center, located in 301
Peabody, provides professional psychological
services to students. These include vocational
counseling, career information, assistance with
academic problems, specialized testing, mar-
riage counseling, and personal counseling. Stu-
dents and students' spouses may apply in
person for such services as they deem necessary.
No charge is made. The Counseling Center
offers consultative services to university faculty
and staff who are engaged in counseling stu-
dents. Close relationships are maintained with
deans, college advisers, housing personnel, the
Student Health Service, and religious centers for
the purpose of expediting both counseling and
consultative services.

Fisher School
of Accounting

General Statement
The School of Accounting was established
July 1, 1977 and named the Fisher School of
Accounting in 1985. The objective of the Fisher
School is to provide the technical and general
education necessary for graduates to enter the
accounting profession and progress rapidly
through levels of increasing responsibility. The
field of accounting offers outstanding opportu-
nities in such areas as public accounting, indus-
trial accounting, nonprofit accounting, and tax
accounting.
The accountant deals with complex prob-
lems in the business world. This requires a thor-
ough knowledge of business operations and the
environment of business as well as accounting
knowledge. In addition to the technical account-
ing skills, an ability to communicate clearly in
both verbal and written forms is essential. Inter-
personal skills and professional judgment are
important elements in the practice of account-
ing. Although accounting is demanding and
requires high motivation in order to succeed,
the rewards are high.

Scholarships
Information about general financial aid can
be obtained from the Director of Student Finan-
cial Aid, University of Florida, Gainesville,
Florida 32611. Students who wish to be consid-
ered for scholarships awarded to fifth-year
accounting students should obtain application
forms from the Fisher School of Accounting
offices and complete them early in the spring
term of their fourth year.

and Accounting courses beyond the introduc-
tory level. A maximum of four semester credits
may be allowed for courses taken during the
first two years which are available only as third
and fourth year professional courses in the Col-
lege of Business Administration at the Universi-
ty of Florida. Any credit granted for such work
will be granted only in the form of undistribut-
ed elective credit. In no case may such courses
be in Accounting. In the case where a student
wishes to waive an upper division core course
and substitute a community college course,
waivers may be granted on an individual basis
but the student will be required to take another
course in the area being waived. The substitute
course will be specified by the department chair
of the area.

Four-Year College Transfer Students: The
same standards for admission as those
described above apply equally to transfer stu-
dents from within the Florida State University
System who have earned their AA degree and
who have passed all parts of CLAST.

Prospective students from other than SUS
Institutions or applicants who have not com-
pleted their AA and CLAST are not guaranteed
admission into the Fisher School of Accounting
upon satisfaction of the "ideal" benchmark stan-
dard. These students will be considered on a
case-by-case basis and will be admitted selec-
tively when space permits.

Prospective accounting students attending
other four-year institutions should follow a
course of study similar to the general education
and preprofessional requirements taken by
lower division students at UF. Courses that are
a part of the third, fourth and fifth year require-
ments should be avoided prior to entering the
University of Florida.

General Regulations
STUDENT RESPONSIBILITY: The student
must assume full responsibility for registering
for the proper courses and for fulfilling all
requirements for the degree. The student is also
responsible for completing all courses for which
he or she is registered.
Seniors must file formal application for a
degree in the Office of the University Registrar
early in the semester in which they expect to
graduate. The official calendar 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 regis-
ter 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 of less than 12 credit hours 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 applied toward the degree must be complet-
ed in residence in the Fisher School. At least 18
of the 21 semester hours of upper-division
accounting course work 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) be taken out-
side the University of Florida. No exceptions to
this policy are permitted. Students in the Fisher
School may take elective and general education
courses at other four-year colleges but only if (1)
the student will have more than 30 hours left
until graduation upon completion of such
courses, and (2) advance approval is obtained
from the assistant director.

SATISFACTORY-UNSATISFACTORY
GRADE OPTION: An undergraduate student in
the Fisher School may take on the S-U basis only
those courses which will be counted as free elec-
tives in fulfilling degree requirements. Courses
taken to satisfy communication requirements
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 be dropped from the accounting
program. In addition to the university regula-
tions concerning unsatisfactory academic per-
formance, the school will exclude students from
further registration for each of the following
reasons:
The student earns two grades below C in
accounting courses numbered above
3000. A one term courtesy registration
following the receipt of the second sub-C
grade will be allowed for students in this
category only.
The student's accounting grade point
average, calculated on all attempts of all
courses numbered above 3000, falls
below 2.0 and remains there after one
term of enrollment.
The student's'University of Florida
cumulative grade point average falls
below 2.0 and then remains there after
one term of enrollment.
The student withdraws from the univer-
sity three times after admission into the
Fisher School of Accounting.
In addition:
Students otherwise in good standing
will be excluded from the Fisher
School of Accounting if they fail to
register for a required upper-division
accounting course for two consecu-
tive semesters of enrollment, and
Students who are not in the Fisher
School of Accounting and earn two
grades below C in accounting courses
numbered above 3000 will be denied
further registration in such account-
ing courses.






ACCOUNTING


DROP POLICY: Courses may be dropped
during the drop/add period without penalty.
After the drop/add period, a course may be
dropped up to the date established as the Fisher
School deadline. All such drops are subject to
the following restrictions:
No more than two drops after the universi-
ty drop/add period will be permitted in a
student's upper-division academic career for
any reason.
After the deadline, students may petition
the university's Committee on Student Peti-
tions to drop a course.
Students dropping their full course load
must contact the Office of the University
Registrar as this constitutes withdrawal from
the university. Withdrawal in any term (fall,
spring, or any summer term) is counted as
one drop for the purpose of applying the
drop policies. The Fisher School will exclude
students from the accounting program if the
student withdraws from the University of
Florida three times after admission to the
Fisher School of Accounting.

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS: To
receive the degree Bachelor of Science in
Accounting, a student must satisfactorily com-
plete the following:
64 semester credit hours of lower division
requirements.
An approved program in accounting.
Upper division core courses.
Elective requirements.
A minimum of 124 semester credit hours is
required for graduation including 60 semester
hours in upper division courses. The waiving of
any required course does not reduce the hours
required for graduation. A student must main-
tain an overall average of 2.0 and a 2.0 average
in all courses which count toward his or her
upper-division degree requirements. A 2.0 aver-
age must also be maintained for all upper-divi-
sion accounting courses. Courses that have been
repeated are included in these averages but do
not carry degree credit. However, if a course is
repeated after an initial grade of C or higher is
earned, the repeat grade and hours will not be
computed in the UF grade point average.

Dean's List and Graduation With
Honors, High Honors or Highest
Honors
A student who carries at least 14 hours per
semester with a grade point average of 3.50 will
be placed on the Dean's List for that semester.
Students must earn a 3.2 grade point aver-
age (honors), a 3.6 grade point average (high
honors) and a 3.8 grade point average (highest
honors) on all upper division course work and
all major course work. Upper division course
work shall include all course work in excess of
60 semester hours. Major course work shall


include the seven required undergraduate
accounting courses. Only course work taken at
the University of Florida will be included in
these computations.
Additional written work will be required for
awarding of the high or highest honors designa-
tion. This requirement must be satisfied either
through completion of TAX 5065 (Tax Research)
or ACG 5655 (Auditing 2), or through comple-
tion of an independent study course under the
supervision of a Fisher School of Accounting
faculty member.
Eligibility for graduation with honors: Stu-
dents who become juniors (a classification of
"3") in Fall 1991 or later are eligible for the hon-
ors designations established in the 1991-92 and

Requirements For Admission
The University of Florida and the College of
Agriculture encourage applications from quali-
fied students of both sexes from all cultural,
racial, religious, and ethnic groups. Listed
below are the specific requirements for admis-
sion to this college. In the event enrollment quo-
tas become necessary because of limited space
or teaching resources, selection of those admit-
ted will be on the basis of past academic perfor-
mance.

LOWER DIVISION STUDENTS
Any student classified lower division 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 stu-
dents must have demonstrated by selection of
preprofessional courses an intent to pursue a
program in agriculture.
Transfer Students. To be eligible for admis-
sion to the College of Agriculture, a transfer stu-
dent must satisfy the minimum requirements
set forth in the ADMISSIONS section of this cat-
alog. Additionally, the applicant should satisfy
the following specific requirements for consid-
eration by the College of Agriculture:
Complete the General Education Require-
ments of the University of Florida as described
in the Lower Division section of this catalog; or,
complete an Associate of Arts degree.
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:
Students attending four-year colleges who
wish to transfer after two years should fol-
low a program of general education and pre-
professional courses similar to the suggested
outlined lower division course sequence.
Junior college students should consult with
an adviser and the Transfer Advisement
Manual published by the University of Flori-
da to develop a program of study that will
satisfy the above requirements. In general,
they should:
Complete the two-year college parallel pro-
gram at their community college.


Satisfy the General Education Require-
ments established for their community
college.
Complete a program of general chemistry
through qualitative analysis and mathematics
through college algebra and trigonometry.
Complete basic courses in biology or
botany and zoology.
Complete a course in general physics.
Choose elective courses in fulfilling the
required total hours in the college-parallel
program from the areas of speech, English,
and the basic sciences.
Avoid specialized professional courses.
Preprofessional courses can be taken to
much better advantage after the student has
acquired the appropriate background in gen-
eral education and basic science courses.
All applicants must have completed two
sequential courses of foreign language in
secondary school or 8-10 semester hours at
the postsecondary level.

SPECIAL POSTBACCALAUREATE
STUDENTS
A student who has received a baccalaureate
degree may be admitted under certain circum-
stances as a special postbaccalaureate student
(6AG). Students may enroll as 6AG in order to:
Receive a second baccalaureate degree;
Satisfy requirements for a second major;
Take basic requirements for admission to
graduate or professional school; or
Complete courses for information only.

Admission requirements for postbaccalaure-
ate students are the same as for transfer stu-
dents. In addition, postbaccalaureate students
must comply with college and university rules
and regulations and meet all deadlines as print-
ed in the catalog for undergraduate students.

General Regulations
STUDENT RESPONSIBILITY: The student
must assume full responsibility for registering
for the proper courses and for fulfilling all
requirements for the degree. Each semester the
student must consult with his or her depart-
mental adviser to plan a program of studies.
The adviser and student will complete a course
approval form (Form 1). The form. 1 and course
request registration form are signed by the
adviser and the white copy of the form 1 and
registration form are to be submitted to the
Office of the University Registrar. Seniors must
file a formal application 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 must
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 stu-






AGRICULTURE


dent'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 mini-
mum course load for these benefits.
RESIDENCE: The last 30 semester hours to
be applied toward the degree must be complet-
ed in residence in the College of Agriculture. In
special cases this requirement may be waived
by the dean's office. Students may complete 12
semester credit hours by extension or corre-
spondence among the 30 semester credits of res-
idence 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 corre-
spondence will not be accepted by the college
unless a student has an upper division grade
point average of 2.0 or higher in all work
attempted in residence.
TRANSFER CREDIT: Credit hours for work
completed at a community college after the stu-
dent has earned a total of 64 semester hours (or
96 quarter hours) of acceptable credit at all insti-
tutions attended will not be accepted for trans-
fer 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 required in the
upper division at the University of Florida to
earn a degree.
SATISFACTORY-UNSATISFACTORY
GRADE OPTION: With approval of the dean, an
undergraduate student in the College of Agri-
culture 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 deficit grade points below
a 2.0 average will be suspended for one term
and then may return for a term but must lower
their deficit below 15 points or face final suspen-
sion.
DROP POLICY: Courses may be dropped
during the drop/add period without penalty.
Thereafter, courses may be dropped only by
College of Agriculture petition until a deadline
for college petitions is reached. Drops requiring
College of Agriculture petitions are subject to
the following rules: *
Two free drops after the university
drop/add period will be permitted for a
student classified as 1AG or 2AG. Students
classified as 3AG, 4AG, 6AG, and OAG are
allowed one free drop. These drops will be
processed according to the student's classi-
fication. Records of free drops will be
maintained in the dean's office; therefore
all drops must be processed through that
office.
After the college deadline, students must
make an appointment with the dean. A
petition will be completed and presented
to the college petitions committee.
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 univer-
sity a second time, that student will be placed
on college probation. A third withdrawal will
constitute violation of the probation and the stu-
dent 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
Agriculture should take, while in lower divi-
sion, the following program of study. The
sequence in which courses are to be taken will
depend upon the department in which a stu-
dent takes his or her upper division major and
will be determined by departmental advisers in
the College of Agriculture.

college leading to completion of a degree.
Departmental requirements must include a min-
imum of 13 credits in the department. Students
completing above 32 hours in a major must
complete an equal number of hours above the
128 credits required for graduation.

DEAN'S LIST AND GRADUATION WITH
HONORS, HIGH HONORS OR HIGHEST
HONORS
A student who carries 15 hours per semester
(or 12 in summer) with a grade point average of
3.3 or better and no grade less than C in any
course will have his/her name placed on the
Dean's List for that semester.
Students completing the requirements for
the B.S. in Agriculture are eligible to be consid-
ered for graduation with honors, high honors or
highest honors.
To graduate with honors a student must
have a University of Florida upper division
grade point average of 3.5 or above. (For pur-
poses of honors the University of Florida upper
division courses are defined as all courses taken
at this university after the student has earned 64
credits, wherever taken.)
To graduate with high honors or highest hon-
ors the grade point average required is 3.75 and
3.85, respectively. In addition, each department
requires an approved research project or cre-
ative work. Students seeking high honors or
highest honors should consult their departmen-
tal adviser upon entering the college.
Eligibility for graduation with honors: Stu-
dents who became juniors (a classification of
"3") in Fall 1991 or later are eligible for the hon-
ors designations established in the 1991-92 and
following catalogs. Students who achieved
junior status prior to Fall 1991 follow the honors
designations established in the 1990-91 catalog.

PRACTICAL WORK EXPERIENCE
By prior arrangement with individual
department advisers and approval of the dean,
students may, during their upper division
course of study, receive credit for practical work
under competent supervision in any recognized
and approved agricultural or related pursuit rel-
evant to their college program. Credit is normal-
ly earned at the rate of one credit per month of
full-time work and may not exceed a total of
three in any combination of experiences. A for-
mal written report must be submitted before a
grade (S-U) will be issued. Departments offering
this option have listed the course number 4941
in the catalog listing of courses. Guidelines are


available from the college and from the individ-
ual departments establishing minimum criteria
for credit eligibility and performance.

GRADUATE TRAINING IN AGRICULTURE
The College of Agriculture offers four
advanced degrees: Master of Agriculture, Mas-
ter of Science, Master of Agricultural Manage-
ment and Resource Development, and Doctor of
Philosophy. Students considering graduate
study should consult with their advisers as
early as possible to ensure proper program
planning.

Minors
Many departments in the College of Agricul-
ture offer minors. These minors are open to stu-
dents in any college, including Agriculture.
Students interested in earning a minor should
consult with the dean to determine availability
and requirements. Students should declare an
intention to pursue a minor-as early in the pro-
gram as possible.

Management
The Agricultural Operations Management
curriculum is designed to provide foundations
for careers in technical management. The appli-
cation of high technology and principles of
management toward improving agricultural
production, processing, manufacturing, product
support, and product education are empha-
sized.
Fundamental technologies in food engineer-
ing, machinery, power, robotics, irrigation,
electrical power, computer interfacing, manage-
ment, human factors, and construction are com-
plemented by courses in agricultural sciences
and business management.
Four options of study in Agricultural Opera-
tions Management are available. The options are
(1) production management; (2) plant and pro-
cess management; (3) technical sales and prod-
uct support management; and (4) bioprocess
management. The option selected by the student
will depend upon the nature of his or her inter-
est in the field. Students should consult a

sciences dealing with two principal groups of
invertebrate animals. The curriculum is
designed to give basic training in entomology





AGRICULTURE


and nematology and specialized programs in
various areas of these two sciences. Students
may follow a basic science or pest management
curriculum. Within the pest management pro-
gram, 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 prob-
lems in and around residential and other build-
ings. Emphasis is also given to business
management so students 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.

MINOR
A minor consisting of a minimum of 15
semester hours is offered in Food and Resource
Economics. Specific courses in the minor must
be approved in writing at least two semesters
prior to graduation by the student's academic
adviser and the undergraduate coordinator of
Food and Resource Economics. AEB 3103 shall
not be counted toward the minor.

Food Science and Human
Nutrition
The Food Science and Human Nutrition
Department offers three curricula, Food Science,
Nutrition and Dietetics and Nutritional Sci-
ences. Students in these curricula take a com-
mon core of courses, required courses for their
area of concentration, and electives. Students
should consult the departmental advisers for
guidance and approval of electives.
Food science deals with the effects of compo-
sition, handling and processing of foods on their
quality, safety and nutritional value. The cur-
riculum provides students the opportunity to
enter into the food industry (the largest and
most stable in the U.S.) or government agencies.


The program is approved by the Institute of
Food Technologists and offers further opportu-
nities in graduate studies. Students are expected
to acquire a solid background in biology, chem-
istry and processing, and are encouraged to seek
minors in business, chemistry and engineering.
The Dietetics curriculum provides a well-
rounded program of applied study in the bio-
logical, chemical, social and behavioral sciences
and relates scientific principles to the lives of
individuals. It prepares students for graduate
study and entry into a dietetic internship or
approved preprofessional practice program
(AP4). The curriculum is approved by the
American Dietetic Association.
The Nutritional Sciences curriculum offers a
broad, strong background in the biological
chemical sciences and prepares students for
graduate study and research in Nutritional Sci-
ences and related fields. The curriculum is
approved as a preprofessional curriculum for
students who plan to apply to medical, dental,
or other professional health schools.

Microbiology and Cell Science

The curriculum is designed to develop fun-
damental knowledge of bacteria, plant and ani-
mal cells, and viruses. It provides a background
for pursuing graduate work in microbiology,
cell biology, or biochemistry as well as other
areas of agricultural sciences. It also provides a
background necessary for work in research or
diagnostic laboratories, both governmental and
industrial. The curriculum also provides a back-
ground for entry into the professions of den-
tistry, medicine and veterinary medicine.
Honors: To qualify for graduation with hon-
ors, high honors or highest honors, a student
must have an upper division grade point aver-
age of 3.50, 3.75 and 3.85, respectively. (For pur-
poses of honors, the University of Florida upper
division courses are defined as all courses taken
at this university after the student has earned 64
credits, wherever taken.) In addition to a mini-
mum GPA requirement, a student must obtain a
grade of "B" or better in at least three credits of
MCB 4905. A thesis which describes the results
of the research must be written in scientific style
and submitted to the faculty research supervisor
and, to the undergraduate coordinator during
the last week of the semester. Candidates for all
levels of honors in the College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences must submit a copy of their thesis
to the college honors office at 352 Little Hall at
least three days before graduation. For students
who are candidates for high or highest, honors
in the College of Agriculture, a copy of the the-
sis must be submitted to the college office at
2002 McCarty Hall at least three days before
graduation. The final decision on the honor dis-
tinction that the student receives, if any, is
determined by the performance in MCB 4905
and an evaluation of the quality of the thesis.
Entry into the honors program requires prior
agreement between the student and the pro-
posed research supervisor. The research will
normally be supervised by a faculty member in





COLLEGES


the Department of Microbiology and Cell Sci-
ence. A research project that is microbiology or
cell biology in nature may be supervised by a
faculty member not in the Microbiology and
Cell Science Department. For this option, a one
page description of the proposed undergradu-
ate research must be submitted to the under-
graduate coordinator for approval prior to
registering in MCB 4905 and initiating the
research project.

Plant Pathology
The curricula in Plant Pathology permit stu-
dents to learn to diagnose plant diseases, to
identify the microbes and the environmental
factors that cause disease in plants, to study the
principles governing infection and development
of plant disease epidemics, and to develop and
prescribe methods and materials for avoiding or
treating plant diseases in agricultural and urban
environments. There are two options:

Biotechnology Option is designed for stu-
dents who plan to go on to graduate school or to
work in places such as biotechnological firms
and university or government research labora-
tories.

Agricultural Technology Option prepares
students to work for various commodity, seed,
and agrichemical industries in which they diag-
nose and recommend controls for plant diseases
or test new plant disease control methods. This

College of Architecture

General Statement
The College of Architecture provides educa-
tion, research, and service for the built and nat-
ural environments 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 institutions
in the country. A unique aspect of the college is
the scope of its professional disciplines which,
at the undergraduate level, include Architec-
ture, Building Construction, Interior Design,
Landscape Architecture, and Regional Planning.
Graduate programs are available, through the
Department of Urban and Regional Planning,
the M.E. Rinker, Sr. School of Building Con-
struction, the Department of Architecture, and
the Department of Landscape Architecture. The
college also offers a Ph.D. program.
The College's teaching, research, and com-
munity service philosophy emphasizes the
interdependence of these professional disci-
plines. A number of required and elective cours-
es 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 11/2 years of design course work are com-
mon to all three undergraduate design disci-
plines (architecture, landscape architecture, and
interior design). Research and service projects
conducted through the research centers and
institutes (described below) often entail multi-
disciplinary, cross-campus student input and
effort.
The Architecture and Fine Arts Library and
the Visual Resources Center are the largest col-
lections of their kind in the Southeast. Together
they provide books, government documents,
American and foreign periodicals, subject files,
microtext, slides, photographs, reproductions,
and other materials for undergraduate and
graduate studies. The AFA Library also main-
tains its own Rare Book Collection for scholarly
research. Services include a professional refer-
ence service ready to assist in guidance and
searches for information. Students may use
additional resources in the University Libraries
system.
Students considering application to the Col-
lege of Architecture should anticipate, as part of
their budget planning, expenditures for travel,
equipment, and tools essential to their educa-
tion as design, planning, or construction profes-
sionals. For further information in this regard,
students should contact the appropriate depart-
ment/school.
The Departments of Architecture and Land-
scape Architecture and the M.E. Rinker, Sr.
School of Building Construction have each cele-
brated over fifty years of service to the citizens
of Florida.

Student Aid
Students interested in part-time employ-
ment, assistantships, fellowships, loans, prizes,
and awards are referred to both individual


departments and information provided by the
university's Office of Student Financial Affairs,
in Criser Hall.

Research Centers
The college contributes to community, state,
regional, and national efforts to conserve and
improve the quality of the natural and built
environments through research projects direct-
ed by the Florida Architecture and Building
Research Center (FABRIC), the Research and
Education Center for Architectural Presevation
(RECAP), and the Center for Tropical and Sub-
tropical Architecture, Planning and Construc-
tion (TROPARC), the Geofacilities Planning
and Information Center (GEOPLAN), the Cen-
ter for Architectural Technology Research
(ARCHTECH), the Center for Community
Redevelopment (CCR), Center for Construction
and Environment, Center for Fire Testing and
Research, Center.for Construction Safety and
Loss Control, and the Center for Affordable
Housing. The college has established research
and training programs of national and interna-
tional prominence such as the Preservation
Institute: Nantucket, the Vicenza Institute of
Architecture in Italy and the Preservation Insti-
tute: 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 organiza-
tions take an active part in the educational pro-
gram of the College. Membership in the
professional organizations of each discipline is
available to students. Student chapters of the
American Institute of Architecture Students and
the American Society of Interior Designers, Insti-
tute of Business Designers, the UF chapter of the
American Society of Landscape Architects, the
Student Planning Association, 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
represented. Honorary societies of Tau Sigma
Delta, Sigma Lambda Alpha, Sigma Lambda
Chi, and the Gargoyle Society are also represent-
ed in addition to the National Organization of
Minority Architects and the National Associa-
tion 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
Architecture encourage applications from quali-
fied students of all cultural, racial, religious, and
ethnic groups. Listed herein are the specific
requirements for admission to this College. It
should be understood that only minimum
requirements are given and that admission to
the college is a selective process. Because it can-
not automatically guarantee admission to all
applicants who satisfy minimum requirements,


the college has established a selective proce
for the admission of students. Priority in admi
sion shall be given to those applicants who,
the judgment of the appropriate departme
tal/school's admissions committee, have tl
greatest apparent potential for successful cor
pletion of the program.
To be eligible for consideration for admi
sion to the college, the student must hal
reached junior status and taken the Collel
Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST; see tl
Index). Additionally all students must ha,
completed two sequential courses of forei
language in secondary school or the equivale
of 8-10 semester hours at the postseconda:
level. Students admitted to the university at le
than junior status are assigned to the College
Liberal Arts and Sciences, lower division, n
the College of Architecture, and such student
cannot be guaranteed space in the preprofe
sional architecture courses nor eventual admi
sion to the College. Students admitted as junio
to colleges other than the College of Archite
ture have no priority for preprofessional or pr
fessional courses and may be considered f(
enrollment on a space-available basis, after pi
ority College of Architecture students have be(
served.
Admission of students having junior static
falls into two categories: 1) those having con
pleted all lower division requirements and pr
pared to study at the third year profession
course work level and 2) those needing to con
plete freshman/sophomore preprofession;
courses. Generally, transfer students from un
versities or community colleges which do ni
offer approved preprofessional programs fin
themselves in the latter category. These student
may require up to four semesters at the Unive
sity of Florida to complete this work due to tl
sequential nature of the courses.
An admissions review process is employee
for all applicants who have completed the pr
professional requirements. Criteria used i
review by each of the departments/school ma
include any or all of the following:

Quality of work completed, over
G.P.A.
Achievements in preprofessional course(
or courses related to the student's ch(
sen plan of study.
Pattern of courses completed.
Portfolio review or pin-up.

Benchmark standards for the admission int
the upper division of each department/schoc
within the college have been established. Tl
standards relate to progress made at the end (
30, 45 and 60 credit hours. These standards n<
only include G.P.A. requirements, but achieve(
ment attained in specific course work as relate
to the students chosen path of study. Thes
standards are available through SASS and th
department/school's academic adviser.

1.Curriculum in Architecture: Through a
admissions committee, the Department (
Architecture annually selects students t
enter third year professional studies. A





ARCHITECTURE


students who satisfactorily complete the
two-year preprofessional programs at Uni-
versity of Florida, Miami-Dade, Broward, St.
Petersburg (Clearwater), and Hillsborough
Community Colleges are eligible for consid-
eration for third year admission. Applica-
tions for transfer from 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 provision-
al admission status (3AR, 4AR, 5AR, or 6AR)
must notify the department office of their
wish to be considered for third year admis-
sion by the same date.

2. Curriculum in Interior Design: Transfer stu-
dents must consult Iheprogram adviser.
Students needing to complete lower division
preprofessional requirements are urged to
apply for the summer term for the sequence
of architectural design, building arts, and
architectural history. The remaining prepro-
fessional courses may be completed during
the next academic year. Students accepted
for the sequence shall be admitted as provi-
sional 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 port-
folio review, overall grade point average,
interview, and letter of application. Notifica-
tion of the decision of the admissions com-
mittee shall be made prior to the close of the
spring semester for the junior class which
begins the following fall. Contact the depart-
ment for current information.

3. Curriculum in Landscape Architecture:
Transfer and post-baccalaureate students
contemplating the professional degree pro-
gram must contact the department to deter-
mine admission timing and eligibility.
Students in the predesign programs at
Miami-Dade, Broward, St. Petersburg and
Hillsborough Community Colleges must
contact the department regarding preprofes-
sional courses not available at those colleges.
All students must complete all required gen-
eral education and preprofessional course
work prior to admission to professional
studies. Selective admission is based on
review of design performance, transcript,
letter and interview.

4. Curriculum in Building Construction: See
the M.E. Rinker, Sr. School of Building Con-
struction section of this catalog.

Application Deadlines
The programs in Architecture, Interior
Design, and Landscape Architecture will admit
students for third year professional course work
in the fall semester only. Students needing to
complete some or all of the lower division
requirements shall be reviewed for the fall,
spring or summer semesters. Applications for
fall, including all required credentials, must be


received by the Office of the University Regis-
trar (for transfer students) or the dean's office
(for UF students) as follows: Architecture -
February 15; Interior Design-March 1, and
Landscape Architecture May 10. The applica-
tion deadlines for these departments for spring
and summer are given as stated in the universi-
ty calendar (see Table of Contents). Applicants
unable to meet these deadlines may apply on a
space-available basis.
The M.E. Rinker, Sr. School of Building Con-
struction will admit students for third year pro-
fessional course work in the fall and spring
semesters only. Deadlines for completion of all
application procedures and receipt of official
credentials are March 1 for fall and September 1
for spring admission.

Advisement
Students planning to major in any program
of study in the College of Architecture should
see the proper departmental chair, program
director, adviser, or the assistant dean 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 hours when, in the opinion of the
adviser, the quality of the student's record justi-
fies this. Twelve credit hours is the minimum to
be considered a full-time student; students who
wish to take less than this should be aware that
certain university privileges and benefits
require full-time status. It is the student's
responsibility to verify the 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 department 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 profes-
sional courses. Additionally, these courses must
be taken in a sequence as specified by the col-
lege or department adviser. This sequence,
along with all course requirements, is outlined
in this section of the catalog.
While the preprofessonal and professional
course sequence must be maintained, variation
from the listed positioning of general education
and elective course work may occur. The four-
year plan shown requires an average of more
than sixteen credits per term, which may not be
appropriate for all students. Students are urged
to plan their curricula well in advance, so that
course sequence and credit-hour loads will
accommodate the most effective academic
progress, regardless of the number of terms
required.


DEAN'S HONOR LIST
Undergraduate students who demonstrate
excellence in their academic work by complet-
ing 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
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 cal-
culation of the College of Architecture average.
Specific grade requirements for the various cur-
ricula may be obtained from the department or
dean's office.
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 recommending stu-
dents for graduation with honors, high honors,
or highest 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 honors, or highest
honors upon earning a minimum academic aver-
age established by the department or school. The
average will be calculated on all work attempted
while the student is classified in the upper divi-
sion. 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 aca-
demic unit for minimum average required.
Eligibility for graduation with honors: Stu-
dents who became juniors (a classification "3")
in Fall 1991 or later are eligible for the honors
designations established in the 1991-92 and fol-
lowing catalogs. Students who achieved junior
status prior to Fall 1991 follow the honors desig-
nations in the 1990-91 catalog.
STUDENT WORK
The college reserves the right to retain stu-
dent work for the purpose of record, exhibition,
or instruction. Work produced while the student
is enrolled in the College of Architecture is the
property of the college adequate documenta-
tion will be made available to students whose
work is retained.
PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE
Students are urged to obtain before gradua-
tion some experience in the employment of
practicing professionals in their particular field
or in some allied work which will give an
insight into the problems of professional prac-
tice. Such employment provides an introduction





COLLEGES


to the methods of actual practice and enables
the student to derive increased benefit from
advanced work in school. Students should con-
tact 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 experi-
ence through study of planning, design, and
construction projects of unusual interest. Stu-
dents frequently combine such studies with
attendance at state and national meetings of the
professional organizations in their respective
fields. Students should check with their depart-
ments for field trip requirements. Students
considering application to the College of Archi-
tecture should anticipate, as part of their budget
planning, expenditures for equipment and tools
essential to their education as design, planning,
or construction professionals. For further infor-
mation in this regard, students should contact
the appropriate department/school.

I. Curriculum in Architecture
R.S. McCarter, Chairman
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 Bachelor of Design (Architec-
ture), a non-professional degree. Admission into
the graduate program is selective and informa-
tion regarding the criteria for admission is con-
tained in the Graduate School catalog.
In addition to the courses offered at the
Gainesville campus, the department operates a
year-round program in Vicenza, Italy, for fourth
year students who are selected to spend either
the fall or spring semester abroad. Supplemen-
tal fees are required for participation in this pro-
gram. 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 avail-
able 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 exhib-
it score based on an evaluation of each student's
pin-up of studio work (1-10 scale). For the past
several years, the average for each criteria has
been as follows: over-all grade point average
3.1, architectural grade point average 3.4, and
exhibit score 5.5. Students who have not suc-
cessfully completed all lower division require-
ments will not be guaranteed admission.
Students with a pin-up score below 3.0 will not
be guaranteed admission. It is the department's
policy to admit the best qualified applicants as
evidenced by their academic achievement and


their potential to successfully 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 department.
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.
(A letter designation after any architecture
course listed below indicates what General Edu-
cation category that particular course fulfills.)

II. Curriculum in Interior Design
Leading to the degree of Bachelor of Design.
Nielson, J. L., Chairman.

The four-year program in Interior Design is
accredited by the Foundation for Interior Design
Education Research (FIDER). The curriculum
leads to the first professional degree and is an
essential first step toward professional registra-
tion in the state of Florida, other states and the
Canadian provinces regulating the use of the
title "Interior Designer" or the practice of Interi-
or Design.
The design process is studied and applied to
creatively resolve problems of interior environ-
ments. The Interior Design faculty seeks to
equip the student with a knowledge of design
techniques, materials, resources and an aware-
ness of the interrelated professional responsibil-
ity of interior environmental design problems.
Field trips are recommended in upper divi-
sion. Students should plan to have adequate
funds for field trips and design studio project
materials. Internships are recommended in the
summer session between the junior and senior
year of study.
Interior Design career opportunities are
numerous due to the demand for professional
design services by businesses, corporations,
community organizations, and governmental
agencies. Graduates of this program usually
assume positions in interior design offices,
architectural firms, or generate their own prac-
tices.

LIMITED ACCESS PROGRAM
All entering students must consult with the
department adviser. This program has addition-
al admission requirements as follows:
All students (post-baccalaureate, junior col-
lege transfers and UF students) must apply for
admission to the upper division (professional
program). Admission to the professional pro-
gram is selective due to space limitations.

industry, which draw upon skills in communi-
cation and interpersonal relations, rather than in
architectural and engineering design.
The freshman and sophomore programs of
study are designed to provide easy transfer for
junior and community college graduates. With
proper course planning, transfer students who
have completed the minimum requirements for
the A.A. degree may complete the four-year
degree program in four remaining semesters at
the university. Prospective junior and communi-
ty college transfer students should consult their
advisers or write to the School of Building Con-
struction for a pre-Building Construction pro-
gram of local study.
Opportunities for advancement and increas-
ing responsibility exist in all areas of the con-
struction industry, a few of which include land
development; home building; public building;
industrialized building systems; commercial,
industrial, marine, and heavy construction;
underwater and space age facilities; materials
and equipment sales and installations; and con-
struction product research, development, sales,
and applications.

from qualified students of both sexes from all
cultural, racial, religious, and ethnic groups.
Listed below are the specific requirements for
admission to this school. It should be under-
stood, however, that minimum requirements
are given and that admission to the school is a
selective process.

ALL STUDENTS:
* LIMITED ADMISSIONS: The satisfaction of
minimum requirements does not automatically
guarantee admission. The school has established
a selective process for the admission of students
and only a limited number of new students are
accepted each fall and spring term. No distinc-
tion is made between internal and external
transfers.
* Students must attain at least a 2.0 (C) average
in Building Construction prerequisite course
work and have an overall 2.0 average for all
lower division work required for and leading to

require attendance at field trips to receive full
benefit from the curriculum. To allow full par-
ticipation in such worthwhile activities, all stu-
dents must sign a "Waiver of Liability and Hold
Harmless Agreement" as a prerequisite to
acceptance into the School of Building Construc-
tion. In addition, student organizations are rep-
resented at conferences, seminars, and projects
outside of campus. A separate and similar waiv-
er form will be used for students desiring to
participate in these voluntary activities.

for that semester.
To graduate with Honors, a student must
make at least a 3.3 average on all course work
accepted as upper division credit and all course
work (except as noted below) attempted while
registered in the upper division. To graduate
with High or Highest Honors, a student must
make at least a 3.6 or 3.75 average, respectively,
on all work accepted as upper division credit
and all course work (except as noted below)
attempted while registered in the upper divi-
sion. In addition, for high and highest honors,


the student must complete a project or other
creative work. -
In calculating requirements for graduating
with honors, high honors, or highest honors, the
following policies are followed: the student
must have completed at the University of Flori-
da at least 48 semester hours of upper division
credit toward a degree in Building Construc-
tion, transfer credits and S-U grade credits are
excluded; credits for lower division courses
taken while registered in upper division will also
be excluded.
Eligibility for graduation with honors: Stu-
dents who become juniors (a classification of
"3") in Fall 1991 or later are eligible for the hon-
ors designations established in the 1991-92 and
following catalogs. Students who achieved
junior status prior to Fall 1991 follow the honors
designations in the 1990-91 catalog.

College of Business

Administration

The College of Business Administration of
the University of Florida was organized in 1926-
1927 and its programs of study include account-
ing, 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
provide a broad formal instructional foundation
for responsible participation in business, the
professions, and government; (b) to stimulate
interest in social, economic, and civic responsi-
bilities; (c) to develop competence in making
business decisions and in evaluating policy; and
(d) to offer fields of specialization in business or
economics and, especially, to encourage intellec-
tual inquiry.
Undergraduate degree programs of the col-
lege are based on a broad foundation of study
outside the college, which prepares the student
for specialization through limited concentration
in certain fields of business 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 administra-
tion 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 par-
ticipates in programs of adult and executive
development education.
Students have access to the university's com-
puting facilities; the college also maintains a
graduate computer center 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, Graduate School of Business
Administration, University of Florida,
Gainesville, Florida 32611.

Membership in National and
Regional Associations
The College of Business Administration is an
accredited member of the American Assembly
of Collegiate Schools of Business, the Southern
Economic Association, the Southern Business
Administrative Association, and the National
Retail Merchants' Association. The baccalaure-
ate and master's programs in both business and
accounting are accredited by the American
Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business.

Admission Requirements
The College of Business Administration
encourages applications from all qualified
applicants, and does not discriminate on the
basis of sex, race, culture, ethnic group, disabili-
ty, marital status or age in admission or access
to its programs. The college admits students
only for the fall, spring and summer A/C terms.
Application deadline dates (see university cal-
endar) are strictly enforced. Students who do
not have a completed application on file, includ-
ing all required documentation, transcripts, etc.,
will not be considered for admission and will be
required to make formal application for a subse-
quent term.
UNDERGRADUATE ADMISSIONS

Students who have less than a 2.50 prepro-
fessional or 2.50 overall grade point average will
be denied admission. Students who have
greater than a 2.50 preprofessional and 2.50
overall grade point averages, but have less than
a 3.0 preprofessional or 3.0 overall grade point
average, may be admitted on an individual
basis subject to the college's faculty and
resource constraints and enrollment constraints
for their declared major.
ADMISSION PROTOCOLS
Freshmen at the University of Florida are
initially admitted to the College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences as lower division students and are
under the control of that college. However, each
semester the College of Business Administration
will send a Student Academic Support Services
(SASS) audit to all lower division students who
have declared a major within the college. The
intent of this audit is to ensure that students are
fully aware of their current academic status. To
further help students determine their current
status, the College of Business Administration
also has specified a series of admission proto-
cols that students seeking admission to the col-
lege are expected to follow. By agreement, both
the College of Business Administration and the
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences will moni-
tor the progress of such students. Students who
are not making adequate progress towards
admission may be required by the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences to seek admission to
another college or to make alternative academic
plans. The admission protocols are as follow:

POSTBACCALAUREATE STUDENTS (6BA)
Depending upon resource and enrollment
constraints, students who have received a bac-
calaureate degree may be admitted for the fol-
lowing purposes:
1. Students who have not received their
BSBA or BSAc degree from the University of
Florida may be admitted only if they wish to
receive a BSBA degree.
2. Students who have received their BSBA or
BSAc degree from the University of Florida, and
who are not applying for graduate programs
within the college, may not receive a second
undergraduate degree from the college and may
only be admitted to complete courses for infor-
mation purposes.
3. Any student applying for a graduate pro-
gram within the college may, at the discretion of
the specific graduate program, be admitted to
take courses in preparation for admission to the
graduate program.
Except for the case of (3) above, admission is
on a highly selective basis and is subject to the
college's resource and enrollment constraints.
Meeting the minimum requirements for under-
graduate admission does not ensure admission
as a postbaccalaureate student.
NON-DEGREE STUDENTS (OBA)
Depending on resource and enrollment con-
straints, students may be allowed to register as
non-degree (transient) students provided they:
1. Are state of Florida employees who have
not previously attended the University of Flori-
da as degree-seeking students, or
2. Have never applied to the University of
Florida as degree-seeking students, and
3. Are currently enrolled in a BSBA program
at another State University System institution,
and
4. Intend to transfer course work back to
their home institution, have a letter from the
institution requesting that they be given non-
degree status and stating the courses that they
should take.
Students approved for non-degree status are
allowed to enroll in courses only on a space-
available basis during the last day of drop/add
(add only day). Therefore, depending on course
availability, students who must take a specific
course for transfer back to their home institution
may wish to explore other academic alternatives.
General Regulations
STUDENT RESPONSIBILITY: Students
admitted to the college are expected to assume
full responsibility for registering for the proper
courses, for fulfilling all requirements for
degrees, and for completing all courses. Aca-
demic counseling is available in the Undergrad-
uate Programs Office located in room 201 of the


New Business Building. Students are strongly
encouraged to meet with an academic adviser
during their first term in the college so they may
establish an academic plan of course work.
NORMAL LOADS: The College of Business
Administration degree programs are full-time
programs. Students are expected to register for
a minimum load of 12 credit hours (6 credit
hours during 6-week summer session). Students
are also encouraged not to take more than 18
hours credit without first consulting an academ-
ic adviser.
NORMAL PROGRESS: A student who falls
below a 2.0 GPA, a 2.0 GPA in the business core,
and/or a 2.0 GPA in the major field course work
will be placed on college probation.
Students who do not make satisfactory aca-
demic progress may be excluded from further
registration in the College of Business Adminis-
tration. A student may be deemed as not mak-
ing satisfactory academic progress under the
following conditions:
If a student fails to satisfactorily complete
the terms of his/her college probation;
If a student withdraws from the university
three times. A student who withdraws from the
university twice automatically will be placed on
college probation until graduation;
If a student fails to take course work that is
appropriate for progress toward the degree.
RESIDENCE: The last 30 semester hours
applied toward a degree must be completed in
residence in the college. This requirement may
be waived only in special cases and must be
approved in advance by the undergraduate
committee of the college. In any case, no student
may take more than 6 semester hours by corre-
spondence among the 60 semester hours of
upper division work required for the baccalau-
reate degree; such work must have prior
approval for each individual student by the
undergraduate committee of the college. Stu-
dents must earn a C or better in all out-of-resi-
dency course work. Business core courses and
courses in a student's major field may not be
taken by correspondence or at another universi-
ty for transfer. Students who are on college pro-
bation may not take courses by extension or
correspondence.
SATISFACTORY-UNSATISFACTORY
GRADE OPTION: Subject to college degree pro-
gram and department guidelines, undergradu-
ate students may take elective course work and
earn grades of S (Satisfactory) or U (Unsatisfac-
tory). Grades earned under the S-U option do
not carry grade point values and are not com-
puted in the University of Florida grade point
average. Such grades are included in a student's
permanent academic record and are reflected on
the transcript. Students should note that other
academic institutions and agencies may inter-
pret a grade of "U" as a failing grade in their
grade point average computation.
Students choosing the S-U option must be in
good standing and may not be on university aca-
demic probation. To elect the S-U option, stu-
dents must obtain approvals from the instructor
and department offering the course, as well as
the dean of their own college. They may elect the
S-U option for only one course each term; this






BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION


option is in addition to courses which are taught
only on a S-U basis. Courses taken to fulfill com-
munication or computation requirements (Gor-
don Rule) may not be taken S-U.
For fall, spring and summer C terms, the
deadline for electing the S-U option is 4:00 p.m.,
Friday, during the third week of classes. For
summer A and summer B terms, the deadline is
4:00 p.m., Wednesday, during the second week
of classes. Once the S-U option is approved, stu-
dents may not elect to convert back to a letter
grade.
COURSE PREREQUISITES: The college
enforces course prerequisites. A current/revised
list of prerequisites for each term may be
obtained from the Undergraduate Programs
Office located in room 201 of the New Business
Building. The deadline for submitting prerequi-
site waivers is the last day of preregistration for
the following semester.
In addition, students are required to com-
plete, or be in the process of completing, all
3000-level core courses before registering for
4000-level major field courses. Students must
also complete all other core courses and have
senior standing (4BA) before they will be
allowed to register for MAN 4720. Students who
will have difficulty following this policy should
contact an academic adviser in room 201 of the
New Business Building.
SUMMER ATTENDANCE: Students having
fewer than 60 semester hours at the time of their
first enrollment in a State University System
institution must earn at least 9 semester hours
prior to graduation by attending one or more
summer sessions at a state university. Petitions
for waivers of this requirement may be submit-
ted for justified health, academic, or financial
reasons, but must include documentation.
INTERNSHIPS: Students are encouraged to
take part in an internship program between
their junior and senior years. Students desiring
academic credit for an internship program
should contact the internship coordinator for
their department. Academic credit for intern-
ship programs is offered only under the S-U
option and no academic credit will be awarded
for an internship taken in a student's final
semester prior to graduation. Internships are
also available through the college's Center for
Retail Education and Research.
FREE ELECTIVES: Electives may be taken
within or outside of the College of Business
Administration, but must be taken outside the
major field; the college encourages students to
take these courses outside the college. A maxi-
mum of 6 semester hours (3 for Computer and
Information Sciences majors) of CLEP,
Advanced Placement or 1000 and 2000 level mil-
itary science courses may be used as electives. A
maximum of 6 semester hours in advanced mili-
tary science courses may be used as electives.
No credit will be awarded for cooperative edu-
cation courses.

International Opportunities
The College of Business Administration
believes that knowledge of the global market-
place is vital for managers who will lead Ameri-
can corporations into the 21st century. An


excellent way to obtain such knowledge is to
study abroad for a semester or a full academic
year. The college has established exchange
agreements with numerous foreign universities.
These programs allow U.F. students to study
abroad for a semester or a full academic year
and to count the credits earned as part of their
degree..The college is also a member of several
international consortia that expand the range of
opportunities for foreign study even more. Par-
ticipants in these approved programs can
receive financial aid as if they were studying in
Gainesville, can count summer courses taken
abroad as part of their summer study obliga-
tion, can study abroad during the last 30 hours
of their programs, and can, with careful plan-
ning and prior approval, count course work
taken abroad as part of their major or core
requirements. Interested students should con-
sult with Dr. R. Crum, Director of International
Programs, 108 Bryan Hall.

Graduation Requirements
Seniors must file a formal application for a
degree in the Office of the University Registrar
by the published deadline date in the semester
in which they expect to receive a degree. In
addition, all students must satisfactorily com-
plete the following for graduation from the Col-
lege of Business Administration:
1. Course work requirements--
The university's General Education
requirements, the college's distribution
requirements, and the college's prepro-
fessional requirements;
A college-approved program in the
business core and the major field of
study;
Elective requirements outside the stu-
dent's major field which have been speci-
fied by the major department. .
2. Credit requirements-
A minimum of 124 semester hours, as
calculated by the college, are required for
graduation. The waiving of any required
course does not reduce the total hours
required for graduation.
3. Grade point requirements-
2.0 grade point average for all course
work attempted at the University of
Florida;
2.0 grade point average on all business
core courses attempted at the University
of Florida;
2.0 grade point average on all major
field courses attempted at the University
of Florida.

Dean's List, Graduation With
Honors, High Honors or
Highest Honors

DEAN'S LIST
For the fall and spring terms only, students
who have earned a 3.5 or better grade point
average, based on a minimum of 14 semester
hours taken for letter grades, are eligible for the
Dean's List. Students will receive a certificate in


recognition of their achievement. Hours taken
under the S-U option are not counted toward
the 14 semester hours required.
HONORS, HIGH HONORS, HIGHEST
HONORS
Students must earn a 3.2 grade point aver-
age (honors), 3.6 grade point average (high hon-
ors), and 3.8 grade point average (highest

taken at the University of Florida, and all major
field course work taken at the University of
Florida; students are required to take all core
and major course work in residence.
A thesis will be required for awarding of the
high or highest honors designation. Students
doing thesis work will be required to enroll in
the appropriate honors thesis course for their
department and will have their thesis reviewed
by at least one faculty member chosen by the
honors coordinator for their major department.
To qualify for the thesis option, a student will
normally have completed 100 semester hours of
course work (exceptions may be made by the
honors coordinator) and must have at least the
grade point average (3.6) required for high hon-
ors at the time they enroll.

low the General Education requirements for the
Associate of Arts certificate as specified by the
University of Florida. To determine whether a
particular course will satisfy this requirement,
review the Description of Courses section in this
catalog or contact the College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences, 358 Little Hall.
SOCIAL SCIENCES DISTRIBUTION
REQUIREMENTS
In addition to the General Education
requirements listed above, the college requires
all students to complete 9 hours of social sci-
ences course work taken outside of the field of
Economics. This is a college distribution
requirement and is not satisfied by the receipt of
an Associate of Arts degree or certificate.

Preprofessional courses may not be taken by
correspondence or under an S-U or P/F option.
Computer and Information Sciences students
are encouraged to take MAC 3311 and MAC
3312 instead of MAC 3233 and MAC 3234. The
Department of Mathematics requires all stu-
dents to take a placement test before they will
be allowed to enroll in any beginning Calculus
course offered by the department. The college
does not allow its students to receive credit for
both MAC 3233 and MAC 3311 or for both
MAC 3234 and MAC 3312.
COMPUTER LITERACY REQUIREMENTS
The College of Business Administration
expects all students admitted to the college to
have a basic knowledge of microcomputers and
familiarity with DOS, spreadsheets, and word
processing. Instructors in business courses will
expect students to be computer literate and will


structure their course materials and teaching
methods accordingly. Students lacking comput-
er literacy and who do not intend to major in
Computer and Information Sciences are encour-
aged to take a microcomputer applications
course, such as CAP 3802.

ELECTIVE REQUIREMENTS
Students should choose sufficient elective
courses to complete the 64 semester hours
required in lower division. These electives may
be taken in such areas as mathematics, social
sciences, foreign language, and humanities, but
may not be taken in a student's major field.
PROPOSED SEQUENCE OF LOWER
DIVISION COURSES
This sequence is designed to provide guid-
ance for students wishing to be considered for
admission to the College of Business Adminis-
tration. Although this sequence will satisfy the
admission protocols that were previously
defined, students are encouraged to make
adjustments to this sequence of courses in light
of their personal strengths, weaknesses, and out-
side constraints. For example, General Education
courses between the 1st and 2nd semester and
between the 3rd and 4th semester may be easily
exchanged, and students may wish to take a 4-
hour General Education course in place of a 1-
hour free-elective. Students who need further
clarification should contact an adviser in the col-
lege's Undergraduate Programs Office located in
room 201 of the New Business Building.

Upper Division Requirements
Upper division requirements total 60
semester hours. They include business core
requirements, major field requirements, and
free-elective requirements. Students must speci-
fy a major field of study at the time they apply
for admission to the college. Once students are
admitted to the college, they must seek formal
approval before they will be allowed to change
their major. Approval will be dependent on
their performance to date and the college's fac-
ulty, resource, and enrollment constraints.
BUSINESS CORE AND MAJOR FIELD
REQUIREMENTS
Students are required to follow the upper
division curriculum specified for their major.
All business core and major field course work
must be taken in residence at the University of
Florida. Students who have taken equivalent
course work at another institution will be
required to either retake the course at the Uni-
versity of Florida or, subject to the approval of
the college's undergraduate committee, take a
higher level course in the same subject area. Stu-
dents should realize that additional semester
hours are not earned when equivalent courses
are repeated.
MINORS
Students within the College of Business
Administration are encouraged to obtain minors
offered by other colleges. Students outside of
the College of Business Administration and the
Fisher School of Accounting may apply for
admission to the minor in Business Administra-
tion. Information on the business minor may be
obtained from the college's Undergraduate Pro-
grams Office located in room 201 of the New
Business Building. The college offering the
minor is responsible for graduation certification
and those students so certified will have the
minor officially noted on their transcripts.

I. Accounting
Bachelor of Science in Accounting require-
ments may be found in the section headed Fish-
er School of Accounting in this catalog.

II. Computer and Information
Sciences
The curriculum for Computer and Informa-
tion Sciences (CIS) majors is designed to pre-
pare students for technical and managerial
positions in computer science in public and pri-
vate organizations. The curriculum emphasizes
three aspects pertinent to the student's profes-
sional career: (1) the functions to which comput-
ers are applied in organizations, (2) the
professional skills for the design of computing
applications, and (3) the decision-making tech-
niques for the efficient and effective utilization
of computing resources.

III.Decision and Information
Sciences
The major in Decision and Information Sci-
ences (DIS) is under consideration. Until

agement major. This track will be officially
noted on the student's transcript.
The Decision and Information Sciences
requirements give majors problem-solving skills
in (1) mathematical and (2) statistical methods,


the use of computers, and (3) application pro-
cesses. The DIS requirements span traditional
academic disciplines to produce a multi-disci-
pline 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 department. The basic curriculum
focuses on the development of computing, quan-
titative, and application skills, but also allows
the student to gain further specialization in one
of three tracks: (1) Management Science, (2)
Operations Management, or (3) Decision Sup-
port Systems.

MINOR IN ACTUARIAL SCIENCES
This interdisciplinary minor is jointly spon-
sored by the College of Liberal Arts and Sci-
ences and by the College of Business
Administration at the University of Florida. The
program is designed for students interested in
quantitative techniques who wish to apply their
skills in a business or government setting.
Upon successful completion, students will
receive a minor in Actuarial Science which will
be officially noted on their transcripts.
Students may complete the program while
earning a Bachelor of Science in Business
Administration degree or a Liberal Arts and Sci-


ences degree. The requirements for the particu-
lar major must be met and, in addition, a num-
ber of courses must be taken in business,
statistics, mathematics, and operations research.
Students plan their program in such a way that
some of these courses also count towards the
departmental and degree requirements. Thus,
mathematics or statistics students would take
three or four additional courses to earn their
minor while business students would take four
or five additional courses.
Students seeking further information about
the minor should contact Dr. Bruce Edwards
(Mathematics), Dr. David Nye (Finance and
Insurance), Dr. John Saw (Statistics), or Dr.
Ronald Akers (Sociology).

VII. Management
The Management curriculum is designed for
those students who wish to focus on either gen-
eral management or human resource manage-
ment. General management focuses on those
aspects of the management process that are
associated with effective and responsible man-
agement, such as the behavior of individuals in
organizations, management philosophy, and
organization design. Human resource manage-
ment (HRM) focuses on the acquisition, devel-
opment, conservation, and use of human
resources in employment settings. HRM applies
knowledge from economics, law, sociology, and
psychology to the design of effective HRM poli-
cies and programs. Students in the Management
department take 15 to 18 hours of major field
course work in addition to the business core
program specified for their major.
The major in Decision and Information Sci-
ences (DIS) is under consideration. Until
approved, it will remain a track within the Man-
agement major. This track will be officially
noted on the student's transcript. See Section III.

College of Dentistry

The College of Dentistry is one of the six col-
leges which constitute the University of Florida
Health Science Center-an integral component,
both geographically and functionally, of the uni-
versity. Many conjoint projects between the Col-
lege 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 Sci-
ences, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery,
Orthodontics, Pediatric Dentistry, Periodontolo-
gy, and Prosthodontics.
The first year of the curriculum includes
basic science, preclinical, and dental science
courses. This structure allows students to devel-
op psychomotor skills while completing didac-
tic 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 the 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 synonymous.)
The college presently offers advanced educa-
tional programs in the following areas: A one-


year program in Advanced Education in Gener-
al Dentistry is offered at the college's St. Peters-
burg. clinic. One-year General Practice
Residency programs are offered in Jacksonville
and Gainesville. Additional programs based at
the college's Gainesville facility include a Dental
Public Health residency (available as either a
one- or two-year program); two year programs
in Endodontics, Pediatric Dentistry, Periodon-
tology, and Prosthodontics; and three-year pro-
grams in Oral Pathology and Orthodontics. A
combined program leading to a certificate in
Orthodontics and a Ph.D. degree in medical sci-
ences with specialization in oral biology also is
offered.
The college offers both a four-year Oral and
Maxillofacial Surgery residency (certificate pro-
gram), based in Jacksonville; and a six-year pro-
gram which awards both an M.D. degree and a
certificate in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery,
based in Gainesville.
Two-year fellowship programs in Geriatric
Dentistry and in Craniofacial Pain and
Mandibular Dysfunction are based in
Gainesville. The college's Department of Oral
Biology, in conjunction with the College of
Medicine, offers a program leading to a Ph.D. in
medical sciences with specialization in oral biol-
ogy.
In conjunction with the Department of Mate-
rials Science and Engineering in the College of
Engineering, the Department of Dental Biomate-
rials offers a program leading to either an M.S.
or Ph.D. degree in materials science.
The College of Dentistry seeks students of
the highest caliber for its various programs. A
strong record of scholastic achievement, moral
character, and motivation is 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 ade-
quate academic preparation in science. The
highly personal relationship between patient


and dentist places the latter in a position of
trust, which demands maturity, integrity, intel-
lectual honesty, and a sense of responsibility. A
broad representation of the ethnic mixture of
the state is sought in the student body through
an active recruitment program. The college
strictly adheres to the principles 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 stu-
dents may be accepted without fulfilling the
degree requirements, provided they show evi-
dence 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 approximately 15
months prior to anticipated enrollment by sub-
mitting an application through the centralized
American Association of Dental Schools Appli-
cation Service (AADSAS), 1625 Massachusetts
Ave., N.W., Suite 101, Washington, D.C. 20036.

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; howev-
er, an in-depth background in biological sci-
ences is necessary to master the dental
curriculum. The Office of Preprofessional Edu-
cation is described in this catalog (see Index).

College of Education

The College of Education is officially
responsible for teacher education at the Univer-
sity 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 Agricultural and Extension Education
through the College of Agriculture; Art Educa-
tion through the College of Fine Arts; Health
Science Education and Exercise and Sport Sci-
ences 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 Liberal Arts
and Sciences; and Elementary and Special Edu-
cation through the College of Education.
In the program areas of Agricultural and
Extension Education, Art Education, Health Sci-
ence Education, Music Education and Exercise
and Sport Sciences, students will be recom-
mended for initial teacher certification upon the
completion of their undergraduate degrees. In
the program areas of elementary education, spe-
cial education, and various areas of secondary
education, students will not be recommended
for initial teacher certification until they com-
plete 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 educational
background is essential to success in later life.
More is expected of professional teachers.
In response to this challenge, the College of
Education has developed a program to prepare
teachers in elementary education, special
education, and the various areas of secondary
education. PROTEACH (from PROfessional
TEACHer) is a rigorous program consisting of
five years of intensive work: general back-
ground knowledge, professional studies, and
academic specializations designed to culminate
in a Master of Education degree.
The curriculum of PROTEACH incorporates
the best available information about effective
teachers' knowledge, skills, and personal
attributes. The latest developments in instruc-
tional 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
course work outside the College of Education
and expanded foundational studies and clinical
experiences.
Within the five-year teacher education pro-
gram, Elementary Education majors are
required to have 81-93 semester hours outside
the College of Education, including 12-24 hours
of specialized study in one or two academic dis-
ciplines. Majors in Special Education are
required to have 70 hours outside the College of
Education, including 18 hours in one academic
discipline. Students in the various subject areas
of Secondary Education are required to have an
undergraduate major in the subject they are
planning to teach and will receive their bache-
lor's degree from the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences. They will take 9 additional hours in
their teaching field as a part of their master's
degree from the College of Education.


All students in PROTEACH, regardless of
their chosen teaching field, take the expanded
foundational studies in education. Those foun-
dational studies include the social, philosophi-
cal, and historical foundations of education;
human growth and development; ethical princi-
ples governing teachers; legal provisions affect-
ing education; handicapped children in regular
classrooms; educational diagnosis and evalua-
tion; interpersonal relations; the cognitive pro-
cess in education; instructional design and
implementation; and the use of computers in
the classroom.
The clinical component of PROTEACH
begins in the third year and continues through
the fifth year. Students engage in early observa-
tion, supervised practice, and a concluding
internship in the public schools as well as cam-
pus-based clinical experiences including
microteaching, simulation, and other controlled
situations. Methods of instruction and clinical
experiences are concurrent and coordinated;
academic and clinical aspects of course objec-
tives are planned together; and methods
instructors are also clinical supervisors.
Academically-able students who are com-
mitted to teaching are encouraged to become a
part of this challenging professional program.
PROTEACH students in Elementary Educa-
tion and Special Education receive the Bachelor
of Arts in Education degree upon the successful
completion of the first of two phases of the
approved teacher education program, including
a prescribed set of courses and experiences. An
additional year is required for completion of the
University of Florida's approved teacher educa-
tion programs in Elementary Education and
Special Education.

Admission
The University of Florida and the College of
Education encourage applications from quali-
fied students of both sexes from all cultural,
