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 presents a description of the academic units; and the third section lists the course descriptions. Other information is provided, including a calendar of
critical dates at the front and a listing of faculty and administration at the back. An index is placed at the end of the catalog for reference purposes.
Each college of the University of Florida campus is represented in the Undergraduate Catalog. A typical college section describes programs offered by
the college, requirements for admission into that college, and information on other topics such as the drop policy, student responsibility, normal course
loads, and other college regulations.
If you are interested in a brief description of an undergraduate course, first consult the Course Prefixes Listing for the name of the department that
offers the course. For example, a course with the prefix ADV is taught by the departments of Advertising and Telecommunication. 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

Florida's First University


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 is a member of the
American Association of Universities. Its fac-
ulty and staff are dedicated to the common
pursuit of the university's threefold mission:
education, research, and service.
Teaching undergraduate and graduate
through the doctorate is the fundamental
purpose of the university. Research and schol-
arship 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 lead and serve the
needs of the nation, all of Florida's citizens, as
well as the public and private educational sys-
tem of Florida by pursuing and disseminating
new knowledge while building upon the past.
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 achievement in
promoting human values and improving the
quality of life.


Mission and Goals

The university belongs to an ancient tradi-
tion of great universities. We participate in an
elaborate conversation among scholars and stu-
dents that extends over space and time, linking
the experiences of Western Europe with the tra-
ditions and histories of all cultures, that
explores the limits of the physical and biological
universes, and that nurtures and prepares gen-
erations of educated people to address the prob-
lems of our societies. While this university rec-
ognizes no limits on its intellectual boundaries,
and our faculty and students remain free to
teach and learn, to explore wherever the mind
and imagination lead, we live in a world with
limits and restraints. Out of the conflict
between intellectual aspirations and the limita-
tions of environment comes the definition of the
university's goals.
Teaching. American colleges and universi-
ties share the fundamental educational mission
of teaching students. The undergraduate expe-
rience, based in the arts and sciences, remains at
the core of higher education in America. The


formation of educated people, the transforma-
tion of mind through learning, and the launch-
ing of a lifetime of intellectual growth: these
goals remain central to every university. This
undergraduate foundation of American higher
education has grown more complex as the
knowledge we teach has grown more complex.
Where once we had a single track through the
arts and sciences leading to a degree, we now
have multiple tracks leading to many degrees in
arts and sciences as well as in a variety of pro-
fessional schools. Yet even with many degrees,
American university undergraduate education
still rests on the fundamental knowledge of the
liberal arts and sciences.
In our academic world we recognize two
rather imprecisely defined categories of higher
education: colleges and universities. The tradi-
tional American college specializes in a carefully
crafted four-year undergraduate program, gen-
erally focused on the arts and sciences.
Universities extend the range of this undergrad-
uate education to include advanced or graduate
study leading to the Ph.D. Most American uni-
versities also include a variety of undergraduate
and graduate professional programs and mas-
ter's degree programs. The University of
Florida shares these traditions. As an American
university, we have a major commitment to
undergraduate education as the foundation of
our academic organization, and we pursue
graduate education for the Ph.D. and advanced
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 character-
istics, 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 to 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 that
shares our adjectives (major, public, comprehen-
sive, land-grant, research), then we fall into a
group of perhaps the best 15 in this country.
Public. We exist thanks to the commitment
and investment of the people of the state of
Florida. Generations of tax dollars constructed
the facilities we enjoy and have paid the major
portion of our operating budget. The graduates
of this institution, educated with tax dollars, pro-


vide the majority of our private funding. Our
state legislators created the conditions that per-
mit our faculty to educate our students, pursue
their research, conduct their clinical practice, and
serve their statewide constituencies. We exist,
then, within the public sector, responsible and
responsive to the needs of the citizens of our
state. The obligations we assume as a public uni-
versity determine many of our characteristics.
We have many more undergraduates than
graduates; we respond quickly to the needs of
the state's economy; we accommodate complex
linkages with other state universities, commu-
nity colleges, and K-12 public and private insti-
tutions; and we operate in cooperative symbio-
sis with our state's media. We also experience
an often too-close interaction with the political
process. Private universities, that have a differ-
ent profile, do not respond in the same ways to
these issues. We, as a public university, must
maintain close, continuous, and effective com-
munication with our many publics.
Comprehensive. This adjective recognizes
the universal reach of our pursuit of knowledge.
As a matter of principle, we exclude no field
from our purview. We believe that our
approach to knowledge and learning, to under-
standing and wisdom, requires us to be ready to
examine any field, cultivate any discipline, and
explore any topic. Resource limits, human or
financial, may constrain us from cultivating one
or another academic subspecialty, but we
accept, in principle, no limit on our field of
view. Even when we struggle with budget
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 commitment
to the holistic pursuit of knowledge.
Land-grant. Florida belongs to the set of
American universities whose mandate includes
a commitment to the development and trans-
mission of practical knowledge. As one of the
land-grant universities identified by the Morrill
Act of 1862, Florida has a special focus on agri-
culture 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 definition most
obviously; but over time, the entire university
has come to recognize its commitment to trans-
lating the benefits of abstract and theoretical
knowledge into the marketplace to 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 univer-
sity is, of course, a peculiarly American inven-
tion and captures one of the powerful cultural
beliefs of our country: that knowledge passes






GENERAL INFORMATION


the test of utility by remaining vitally connected
to industry and commerce.
Research. Research defines this university.
Our faculty 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 experi-
mental discoveries of the geneticist, the insights
of the semiotician, the re-creations of the histo-
rian, or the analysis of the anthropologist. We
define research to capture the business profes-
sor's analysis of economic organization, the
architect's design, and the musician's interpreta-
tion or the artist's special vision. Research by
agronomists improves crops, and research by
engineers enhances materials. Medical and clin-
ical research cures and prevents diseases. The
list of research fields continues as endlessly as
the intellectual concerns of our faculty and the
academic vision of our colleges.
We must publish university research, what-
ever the field. The musician who never per-
forms, the scientist whose work never appears
for review by colleagues, the historian whose
note cards never become a book may have
accomplished much, but their accomplishments
remain incomplete. When we say research, we
mean research and creative activity that con-
tributes to the international public conversation
about the advancement of knowledge.

History
Florida's oldest and largest university, the
University of Florida traces its beginnings to
1853 when the state-funded East Florida
Seminary acquired the private Kingsbury
Academy in Ocala. After the Civil War, the sem-
inary was moved to Gainesville. It was consoli-
dated with the state's land-grant Florida
Agricultural College, 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 universities in the nation and is
ranked in the top ten among public AAU uni-
versities.

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.
University affairs are administered by the presi-
dent with the advice and assistance of the uni-
versity administration, the University Senate,
and various committees elected by the Senate
and appointed by the president.


Students

University of Florida students-numbering
almost 36,000 in Fall 1993-come from more than
100 countries (1,600 international students), all
50 states, and every one of the 67 counties in
Florida. The ratio of men to women is 53/47.
Thirty-three percent are freshmen and sopho-
mores and 43 percent, juniors and seniors. More
than 6300, or 17 percent, of the student body are
graduate students, and 2100, or 6 percent, are in
the professional programs of medicine, den-
tistry, veterinary medicine, and law.
Approximately 2,000 African-American stu-
dents and 2500 Hispanic students attend UF.
Ninety percent of entering freshmen rank above
the national mean of scores on standard
entrance exams taken by college-bound stu-
dents. In 1992, UF ranked third in the nation
among public universities in the number of new
National Merit Scholars and fifth in the number
of Achievement Scholars in attendance.

Faculty

A distinguished faculty of more than 4,000
attracted more than $200 million in research and
training grants in 1992-93. UF now has 52 emi-
nent 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
Engineering, 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, 20
Fulbright Scholar awards, co-inventor of the jet
engine, one of the four charter members of the
Solar Hall of Fame, and an art faculty with 80
percent of its members in Who's Who in
American Art.

Programs

The University of Florida is among the
nation's 51 leading research universities as
categorized by the Carnegie Commission on
Higher Education. UF is a member of the
Association of American Universities, the
nation's most prestigious higher education
organization. The University of Florida is
accredited by the Southern Association of
Colleges and Schools-Commission on Colleges
to award the degrees of bachelor, master, spe-
cialist and engineer, as well as doctoral and pro-
fessional degrees. UF is one of the nation's top
three universities offering more academic pro-
grams 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. More
than one hundred majors are offered in 94
undergraduate degree programs. The Graduate
School coordinates 123 master's and 76 doctoral
programs in 87 of the 137 UF academic depart-


ments. Professional post-baccalaureate degrees
are offered in law, dentistry, medicine, and vet-
erinary 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
Independent Study by Correspondence courses,
both credit and non-credit.

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

Facilities
On 2,000 acres, most of it within the limits of
an 90,000-population urban area, the university
operates out of more than 850 buildings, 142 of
them equipped with classrooms and laborato-
ries. Facilities are valued at more than $550 mil-
lion. Notable among these are the University Art
Gallery, a microkelvin laboratory capable of pro-
ducing the coldest temperature in the universe, a
100-kilowatt training and research nuclear reac-
tor, the second largest academic computing cen-
ter in the South, and a self-contained intensive
care hyperbaric chamber for treating near-
drowning victims.
The Florida Museum of Natural History 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 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,







GENERAL INFORMATION


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 and lake on campus provide opportuni-
ties 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 fourth in the USA Today combined
men's and women's sport programs for 1992-93.
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 the university-owned
Lake Wauburg, and the Gulf and Atlantic
beaches, which are just a short drive away.

Campus Safety and Security

The University of Florida is an open campus
and can rightly be considered a city within a
city. As such, the campus is not immune to the
same security issues that affect other parts of the
Gainesville community.
The university recognizes that an institution
of higher learning must develop and maintain a
safe and secure environment for its students, fac-
ulty and staff.
The university has the utmost concern for the
safety of each student and it strives to give each
student maximum freedom. With this freedom,
however, comes the responsibility to exercise
personal safety.
No community's security plan can attain
maximum effectiveness unless everyone in the
community contributes to making it work.
Safety and security are personal and shared
responsibilities. Only by accepting this responsi-
bility can members of the university community
maintain a safe and secure campus environment.

Standard of Ethical Conduct

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-expres-
sion, voicing disagreement, and challenging
outmoded customs and beliefs are prized and
honored. However, all such expressions and
challenges need to be civil, manifesting respect
and concern for others.
As a major sector in the community, stu-
dents are expected to follow the university's
rules and regulations that, by design, seek to
promote an atmosphere of learning. The other
sectors, faculty, staff, and administration, are
expected to provide encouragement and leader-
ship as well as example.
While the university seeks to educate and
encourage, it also must restrict any behavior
that adversely affects others or is contrary to the
pursuit of knowledge. The purpose of this
Standard of Ethical Conduct is to summarize
what is expected of the members of the univer-
sity community.

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
Student Honor Code, as part of the registration
process. A fundamental principle is that the
whole process of learning and pursuit of knowl-
edge are diminished by cheating, plagiarism,
and other acts of academic dishonesty. In addi-
tion, every dishonest act in the academic envi-
ronment affects other students adversely, from
the skewing of the grading curve to giving
unfair advantage for honors or for professional
or graduate school admission. Therefore, the
university will take severe action against dis-
honest 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
foster cheating in their classes. Teachers
should encourage students to bring negative
conditions or incidents of dishonesty to their
attention. 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 commu-
nity, 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
organizations and individuals violating
either the law or reasonable conduct in the
use of alcohol. It must also provide help for
students who are alcohol-dependent. The
university 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 individuals use alcohol within the
bounds of the law and 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. They
should encourage those needing profes-
sional help to seek it. The same standards
and regulations apply equally to members of
the faculty, staff, and administration.

RELATIONS BETWEEN PEOPLE AND
GROUPS
One of the major benefits of higher educa-
tion and membership in the university commu-
nity is greater knowledge of and respect for
other groups, religious, racial, and cultural.
Indeed, genuine appreciation for individual dif-
ferences and cultural diversity is essential to the
environment 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 balance of communal living will be
subject to university disciplinary action. Only
in an atmosphere of equality and respect can all
members of the university community 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 institu-
tion by faculty, administration, staff, and stu-
dents. Through experience in helping individu-
als 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 bea-
con that, by directing itself to the highest values,
guides and encourages society to do the same.









Admissions
For general instructions when using this
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 Office of Admissions, University of
Florida, Box 114000, Gainesville, Florida, 32611-
4000, 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, undergraduate transfer, postbac-
calaureate, 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 imply in any way that
approval also would be given for entrance in
any other term.

General Statement
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. 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.
Failure to declare attendance at another
institution 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 lan-
guage 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 for the first time as a freshman,
undergraduate transfer, postbaccalaureate,
graduate, dental, law, medical, or veterinary
medicine student may be found in the appropri-
ate sections which follow.
The specific requirements for readmission
(at the same or a different level) of a student
previously enrolled at the university also may
be found in the appropriate sections which fol-
low.
It should be understood, however, that mini-
mum requirements are given and that admis-
sion to the university is a selective process. The
satisfaction of minimum requirements does not
automatically guarantee admission. Under
Board of Regents policy, a limited number of
students may be admitted as exceptions to the
minimum requirements. The University
Admissions Committee is the agency at the
University of Florida that is responsible for the
admission of undergraduate students under this
exception policy.
Any student who is admitted conditionally
to the university may enroll subject to verifica-
tion that the conditions of admission have been
satisfied. Receipt of final official credentials for
a student which fail to confirm that the condi-
tions for admission have been met will result in
revocation of admission, reclassification to non-
degree status, and denial of continued enroll-
ment.
Minimum requirements evolved from stud-
ies of student performance at the university.
These studies identified primary factors which
indicate a reasonable chance for successful com-
pletion 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 for
the first time will be considered for admission
as follows.
* Beginning Freshmen: Students who have
earned fewer than 30 semester hours of col-
lege credit 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
attended any college or university previ-
ously and earned 30 credits or more, and
those who have earned at least 12 semester
hours following graduation from high
school, but who have not received a bache-
lor's degree. (See following section,
Admission as a Transfer Student to
Undergraduate 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)
Graduate Students: Candidates for master's,
specialist, or doctoral degrees. (See following
section, Admission to Graduate School)
Dental Students: Candidates for admission to
the College of Dentistry. (See following sec-
tion, Admission to the College of Dentistry)
Law Students: Candidates for admission to
the Juris Doctor program in the College of
Law. (See following section, Admission to
the College of Law)
Medical Students: Candidates for admission
to the College of Medicine. (See following
section, Admission to the College of
Medicine)
Veterinary Medicine Students: Candidates for
admission to the College of Veterinary
Medicine. (See following section, Admission
to the College of Veterinary Medicine)

Residency Classification for
Tuition Purposes
In-state residency requests for tuition pur-
poses are not granted to students who appear to
have entered the state for educational purposes.
For more details regarding residency classifica-
tions for tuition purposes, refer to the residency
page in this catalog.

Undergraduate Interinstitutional
Registration Program
The Undergraduate Interinstitutional
Registration Program enables students at State
University System institutions to take advan-
tage of special resources and programs available
on another campus in the system but not avail-
able at their home institution, e.g., special
course offerings, research opportunities, unique
laboratories, overseas study programs, and
library collections. 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.







ADMISSIONS


Medical Immunizations
Requirement
Prior to registration, each student accepted
for admission must submit proof of immuniza-
tion. When the application for admission is
approved, a form to complete and return is for-
warded to the student. No student is allowed to
register until the Office of Admissions has
received the form and it has been forwarded to

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 is provided to qualified appli-
cants whose applications and supporting
records are received in the Office of Admissions
prior to February 1. Applications for the fall
class received February 1 and after are consid-
ered on a space-available basis only. The dead-
lines for receipt of applications for other terms
are listed in the university calendar.
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. Students may
apply for admission to upper division and pro-
fessional schools of the university after attending
community colleges or other universities and by
transferring to the university's upper division
colleges in accordance with admissions stan-
dards.
The requirements for admission set forth
below give priority to those applicants whose
total record indicates the greatest likelihood of
success in the lower division program at the
university.

An overall C average, as computed by the
University of Florida, at each collegiate insti-
tution attended. College deficiencies earned
through high school dual-enrollment pro-
grams will be reviewed on an individual
basis by the admissions committee.
Please note: To be considered for admission,
applicants who present scores on the G.E.D.
(General Equivalency Diploma) for satisfaction
of the high school graduation requirement also
must present records from secondary schools
attended and standardized test scores. The
applicant's overall 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 univer-
sity will do everything possible to accept all
qualified applicants who apply before the appli-
cation deadline. If the number of qualified


applicants exceeds the number that the univer-
sity is permitted to enroll, admission will be
selective. 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
Aptitude Test (SAT) results of recent freshman
classes at the University of Florida indicate that
more than 50 percent score 500 or above on the
verbal section and more than 75 percent score
500 or above on the math section. In addition,
more than 50 percent of each entering class has
earned a B+ or better average in high school
academic subjects. While there is no minimum
grade average or test score which will assure
admission or success in college, prospective
applicants are urged to discuss these data with
their school counselors before applying to the
university.
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.,
admission following completion of the junior
year of high school) from superior students will
be considered on an individual basis by the uni-
versity's admissions committee. Applications
should be submitted in accordance with dead-
lines 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.

ondary school record covering 9th, 10th, and
11th years. Generally, an overall academic
average of 3.60, at minimum, is expected.
Results of either the Scholastic Aptitude Test
(SAT) or the American College Test (ACT).
Generally, an SAT total score of 1280 is
required (with both verbal and quantitative
subscores of 600 or higher) or a composite
score of 30 on the Enhanced ACT is required.
Prior to registration for Summer B 1995 and
thereafter, all freshmen will be required to
present a SAT-II Writing Achievement test
score for placement in English. The follow-
ing SAT-II examination scores also must be
submitted by students who plan to enroll in
any of the subjects listed below:
Math Level IIC (calculus)

French (reading only)






ADMISSIONS


Spanish (reading only)
German (reading only)
Students may substitute Advanced Place-
ment credit for any of the above SAT-II
examinations.
A letter of recommendation from the stu-
dent's high school principal or guidance
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.
Eligible early admission students from
Florida high schools may be funded through
Dual Credit Enrollment.
The university provides numerous opportu-
nities other than early admission to accelerate
graduation. For additional information, please
refer to the Time-Shortened Degree Opportuni-
ties 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 service charge, is refundable until
May 1st for applicants accepted for admission to
the fall freshman class.
Admission with Advanced Standing. The
university is a participant in the Advanced
Placement (AP) program and the College Level
Examination Program (CLEP) of the College
Entrance Examination Board and the Inter-
national Baccalaureate (IB) program. Under the
advanced placement program, a student enter-
ing the university offers a nationally-graded
examination as evidence of completion of a col-
lege-level course taken in high school. Depend-
ing on the results of the examination, the stu-
dent may receive university credit for courses
covering similar material or exemption from
such courses without credit.
Admission Offers with Outstanding
Credentials. Offers of admission with course
work currently in progress are tentative offers,
pending 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, and who have earned at least 12
semester hours of credit following graduation
from high school or attended another postsec-
ondary institution through an early admission
program, are considered transfer students.
When to Apply: Applications may be sub-
mitted up to one year in advance. Applicants
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 individual
college to which they intend to apply for specific


program information. (NOTE: In a number of
undergraduate programs, the sequence of pro-
fessional courses begins ONLY in the fall term of
the junior year.) An applicant who delays filing
an application may find it impossible to furnish
the necessary supporting records in time to per-
mit 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 univer-
sity is selective and satisfaction of these gen-
eral requirements does not guarantee accep-
tance. Upper division colleges of the university
have established enrollment quotas because of
enrollment limitations. Upper division transfer
applicants 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
Contents.)
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 Forida record and
may be used to satisfy various 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.
Failure to declare attendance at another institu-
tion can invalidate admission to the University
of Florida and any credits or degrees earned.
Courses completed with grades of D or
higher 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 determine
how transfer credit satisfies the specific degree's
course requirements. 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. Trans-
ient 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 or universities and applicants
for readmission should consult the appropriate sec-
tions 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
scale on all college-level academic courses.
All applicants must have completed two
sequential courses of foreign language in
secondary school or 8-10 semester hours at
the postsecondary level, or document an
equivalent level of proficiency.
An official transcript must be furnished from
each institution attended regardless of
length of attendance or credit earned.
Official supplementary transcripts are
required, as soon as they are available, for
any work completed after making applica-
tion. Since an average of C or higher is
required for graduation from the Univer-
sity of Florida, a student who has failed to
maintain this average at another institution
is not eligible for admission. Regardless of
the average earned, courses completed at
other institutions must parallel reasonably
the curriculum at the University of Florida.
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 completed satisfactorily the
College 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 addi-
tional 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.






ADMISSIONS


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
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,
so limited that very few are accepted.
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 A.A. 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 would not be allowed to
return to an institution previously attended
cannot be considered for admission to the
university.
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.
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 authori-
ties 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 (or accept-
able substitutes) as required for admission
by the upper division college of his or her
choice 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 to complete those courses if
all other requirements for admission are
met; however, 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 University System
of Florida who have had the opportunity to
take the test, MUST have completed it satis-
factorily. Students transferring to upper
division programs from private colleges in
Florida or from out-of-state colleges who
have not had the opportunity to take the
test, MUST pass the test by the end of the
next term in which it is available to them.
All applicants must have completed two
sequential courses of foreign language in
secondary school or 8-10 semester hours at
the postsecondary level, or document an
equivalent level of proficiency.

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 univer-
sity calendar published in this catalog and to
verify departmental deadlines with the appro-
priate department.
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 admis-
sion to graduate or professional study at
some future date.
To earn a second bachelor's degree.
Application for admission as a postbaccalau-
reate student must be made to Office of


Admissions, University of Florida, Gainesville,
Florida, 32611-4000, on forms supplied by that
office. Applications are referred to the appropri-
ate department for the admission decision. No
application will be considered unless complete
official transcripts) of all the applicant's prior
collegiate work are in the possession of the
Office of Admissions. No transcript will be con-
sidered official unless it is received directly
from the registrar of the institution at which the
work was performed. Official supplementary
transcripts) are required, as soon as they are
available, for any work completed after the
application was filed.
Students who desire postbaccalaureate sta-
tus in the College of Education to obtain teacher
certification must provide the college with a
clear statement of certification goals as a part of
the requirements for admission. Interested stu-
dents should contact the college directly for fur-
ther information.
A student who applies for admission as a
postbaccalaureate student and whose native
language is not English must submit acceptable
scores on Test of English as a Foreign Language
(TOEFL). A minimum TOEFL score of 550 is
required for admission.

Admission to the Graduate School
Application for Admission: Admission
forms and information concerning admission
procedures may be obtained from the Office of
Admissions, University of Florida, Gainesville,
Florida, 32611-4000. Prospective students are
urged to apply for admission as early as possi-
ble. For some departments, deadlines for receipt
of admission applications may be earlier than
those stated in the current university calendar;
prospective students should consult the appro-
priate department. Applications which meet
minimum standards are referred for the admis-
sion decision to the graduate selection commit-
tees.
To be admitted to graduate study in a given
department, the applicant must satisfy the
requirements of the college and department as
well as those of the Graduate School. In some
departments, available resources limit the num-
ber of students who can be admitted.
General Requirements: The Graduate
School requires both a minimum grade average
of B for all upper division undergraduate work
and acceptable scores on the verbal, quantita-
tive, and analytical sections of the Graduate
Record Examination (GRE). For some colleges
and departments, and in more advanced levels
of graduate study, an undergraduate grade
point 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 lan-
guage. Exceptions to the above requirements are
made only when these and other criteria are
reviewed and recommended by the department
and approved by the college and the dean of the
Graduate School.







ADMISSIONS


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. No transcript
will be accepted as official unless it is received
directly from the registrar of the institution in
which the work was done. Official supplemen-
tary transcripts are required as soon as they are
available for any work completed after applica-
tion 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, satis-
factory 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.
Admissions Examinations
Graduate Record Examination: In addition
to the GRE required of all applicants, 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 the 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 satisfac-
tory scores on the GMAT. Applicants should
contact the Educational Testing Service,
Princeton, NJ 08540, for additional information.
Graduate Study in Law: Students applying
to the graduate program leading to the degree
Master of Laws in Taxation must submit satis-
factory scores on the Law School Admissions
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.
Students also may be granted conditional
admission to ascertain their ability to pursue
graduate work at the university 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 notifies the student in writing, and sends a
copy to the Graduate School. Eligible course
work taken while a student is in conditional sta-
tus 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 lan-
guage 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 admission can be considered.
Students educated in countries other than
the United States where the GRE is not avail-
able and 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 semes-
ters depends upon the submission of scores
on the GRE.
All international students applying for
admission to the Master of Business
Administration program must submit satis-
factory scores from the GMAT before their
application 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 should write the Educational
Testing Service, Princeton, New Jersey, for reg-
istration forms and other information concern-
ing 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
Admissions, College of Dentistry, University of
Florida, Box 100445, Gainesville, Florida, 32611-
0445. 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 support-
ing documents must be returned directly to the
AADSAS no later than October 15 of the year
prior to anticipated enrollment in dental school.
Failure to meet this deadline will prevent the
Dental Admissions Committee from evaluating
your record.
The data compiled by the AADSAS will be
evaluated carefully 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 are
not necessary until the formal application forms
are filed. The formal application forms and sup-
porting materials must be submitted as
requested by the College of Dentistry.
The college aspires to attract students of the
highest caliber into its programs. High stan-
dards of scholastic achievement, moral charac-
ter, and motivation are expected of the appli-
cant. The student of dentistry must possess a
high basic aptitude supplemented by an acade-
mic preparation of the highest order because of
the vast area of science which must be mastered
by the dentist. The highly personal relationship
between patient and dentist places the latter in a
position of trust, which demands maturity,
integrity, intellectual honesty, and a sense of
responsibility. A broad representation of the
ethnic mixture of the state is sought in the stu-
dent body through an active recruitment pro-
gram. The college strictly adheres to the princi-
ple of ethnic, racial, religious, and social equal-
ity 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 will
receive strongest consideration for admission to
the college.
All applicants must take the Dental
Admission Test, preferably in the spring preced-
ing the submission of their initial application or,
at the latest, during the fall testing period. The
test is given twice a year at many college and
university testing centers. Following a review of
all application materials and Dental Admission
Test scores by the Dental Admissions Commit-
tee, interviews with members of this committee
will be arranged for competitive applicants.
(Refer to the more detailed description in the
College of Dentistry bulletin.)







ADMISSIONS


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 must have received a
baccalaureate degree from a regionally-accred-
ited college or university and achieved a satis-
factory score on the Law School Admission 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 prior to receipt of the 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 catalog.
Advanced Standing Students: For informa-
tion on admission to the college with advanced
standing, refer to 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, candidates should make
application as early as possible during the sum-
mer 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 strongly is
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 enrolled
presently in another medical school will be con-
sidered provided students are eligible to con-
tinue in their present medical school, the school
they are now attending is a member of the
Association of American Medical Colleges, and
space is available.
Prospective applicants must take the Medi-
cal College Admissions Test, preferably by the
spring preceding the submission of the applica-

ADMISSIONS


Test Score Requirements
Except as noted below, all international stu-
dents seeking admission to this university are
required to submit satisfactory scores of 550 or
higher on the Test of English as a Foreign
Language (TOEFL).
* International students whose native lan-
guage is English or who have studied at a
United States high school, college, or univer-
sity for one year or more are not required to
submit TOEFL scores, but must submit satis-
factory scores on an appropriate admissions
test.
Students who enter the university as fresh-
men or sophomores (less than 60 hours of
credit) must submit Scholastic Aptitude Test
(SAT) or American College Test (ACT)
scores before their application for admission
will be considered.
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 and who apply for
admission to graduate study while residing
outside the United States may be granted, on
the basis of hardship, a one term postpone-
ment of the GRE but NOT the TOEFL.
Permission to register for subsequent terms
will depend upon the submission of scores
on the GRE.
All international students applying for
admission to the Master of Business Admin-
istration (MBA) program must submit satis-
factory scores on the Graduate Management
Admission Test (GMAT) before their appli-
cation for admission can be considered.
TOEFL information and registration forms
are available in many locations outside the
United States; usually at U.S. embassies and
consulates, 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
(IE), America-Mideast Education and Training
Services, Inc. (AMIDEAST), African American
Institute (AAI), and the American-Korean
Foundation. Candidates who cannot obtain
information locally on TOEFL, GRE, GMAT, or
SAT should write: 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
United 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 Apply 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.
Credentials of applicants who do not enroll will
be destroyed and cannot be returned or for-
warded 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 is approved, an official notice of
acceptance will be sent by the university.
Admission is for a SPECIFIC term. If a student
is unable to enroll for the term indicated in the
notice of acceptance, the Office of Admissions
should be informed immediately. If the student
wishes to be considered for entrance to a differ-
ent 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.
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, 32611-4000. 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 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. If applicants have attended any


college or university since last enrolled at the
University of Florida, they also must have an
average of C or higher (as computed by UF)
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 meet-
ing university grade-point average require-
ments.) Students must list all institutions
attended and provide complete official tran-
scripts from each. Failure to declare atten-
dance at another institution could invalidate
admission and any credits or degrees earned.
Applicants also must be in good standing and
eligible to return to each institution previ-
ously attended.
Applicants for readmission must meet the
current admission requirements of the col-
lege or school they expect to enter. Readmis-
sion is not guaranteed and is subject to the
availability of space at the appropriate level
in the desired college or major. (Consult the
appropriate college section of the catalog for
specific admission requirements.)
While grades earned at other institutions
may be considered when readmission deci-
sions are made, such grades are not aver-
aged 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 quali-
fications, applicants who have experienced
major or continuing difficulties with school
or other authorities since the last enrollment
at the University of Florida may find their
application for readmission denied.

Fresh Start Program
Former undergraduate students who have
been suspended and who wish to return to the
University of Florida after an absence of no
fewer than five calendar years (during which
they have engaged predominantly in non-acad-
emic activities) may petition for readmission
under the Fresh Start Program. If admitted,
credit for previous 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
Program 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 depen-
dent child, the child's parent or parents,
shall have established legal residence in
Florida and shall have maintained legal
residence in Florida for at least twelve
(12) months immediately prior to his or
her qualification. A dependent child is a
person who may be claimed by his or her
parent as a dependent under the Federal
Income Tax Code. Every applicant for
admission to a university shall be
required to make a statement as to the
length of residence in the state and, also
shall 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 maintaining a bona fide domi-
cile 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
Section 240.1201(4), Florida Statutes.
Prima facie evidence may be reinforced
or rebutted by evidence of residency,
age, and the general circumstances of the
individual in accordance with the provi-
sions of Rule 6C-7.005(2).
(c) In making 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 resident
status for tuition purposes solely by rea-


son 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 res-
ident tuition status because the person,
or, if a dependent child, the parent or par-
ents, establish domicile or legal residence
elsewhere, shall continue to enjoy the res-
ident tuition rate for a statutory grace
period. This grace period shall be mea-
sured in accordance with the provisions
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 in
fact does claim, the minor as a dependent
pursuant to federal individual income
tax provisions.
(h) Any person who ceases to be enrolled
at or graduates from an institution of
higher education while classified as a 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 adminis-
trative personnel employed by state
public schools, community colleges, and
institutions of higher education, and the
spouses and dependent children of such
individuals, shall be classified as resi-
dents for tuition purposes.
(k) A student enrolled through the
Florida Linkage Institutes program shall
be assessed resident tuition for the credit
hours approved by the applicable
Linkage Institute and non-resident
tuition for all other credit hours.
(1) A full-time student from Latin
America or the Caribbean who receives a
scholarship from the federal or state gov-
ernment shall be classified as a resident
for tuition purposes.
(m) Southern Regional Education Board's
Academic Common Market graduate
students shall be classified as residents
for tuition purposes.
(n) A full-time employee of a state
agency or political subdivision of the
state shall be classified as a resident for
tuition purposes when the student's
tuition is paid by the state agency or
political subdivision for the purpose of


job-related law enforcement or correc-
tions training.
(o) United States citizens, their spouses,
and dependent children living on the
Isthmus of Panama, who have completed
12 consecutive months of college work at
the Florida State University Panama
Canal Branch shall be classified as resi-
dents for tuition purposes.
(p) McKnight Doctoral Fellows who are
United States citizens shall be classified
as residents for tuition purposes.
(2) An individual shall not be classified as a
resident for tuition purposes and, thus,
shall not be eligible to receive the resi-
dent tuition rate, until the individual has
provided 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 also shall 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
Immigration and Naturalization Service,
or who hold an Immigration and
Naturalization Form 1-151, 1-551 or a
notice of an approved adjustment of sta-
tus application, or Cuban Nationals or
Vietnamese Refugees or other refugees or
asylees so designated by the United
States Immigration and Naturalization
Service who are considered as Resident
Aliens, or other legal aliens, provided
such students meet the residence require-
ments stated above and comply with
subsection (4) below. The burden of
establishing facts which justify classifica-
tion of a student as a resident and domi-
ciliary entitled to "resident for tuition
purposes" registration rates is on the
applicant for such classification.
(3) In applying this policy:
(a) "Student" shall mean a person admit-
ted to the institution, or a person allowed







RESIDENCY


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 pur-
poses" applicant, or, if a dependent child,
the parent of the applicant, shall make
and file with such application a written
statement, under oath, that the applicant
is a bona fide resident and domiciliary of
the state of Florida, entitled as such to
classification as a "resident for tuition
purposes" under the terms and condi-
tions prescribed for residents and domi-
ciliaries of the state of Florida. All claims
to "resident for tuition purposes" classi-
fication must be supported by evidence
as stated in Rule 6C-7.005(1), (2) if
requested by the registering authority.


(5) A "nonresident" or, if a dependent child,
the individual's parent, after maintaining
a legal residence and being a bona fide
domiciliary of Florida for twelve (12)
months, immediately prior to enrollment
and qualification as a resident, rather than
for the purpose of maintaining a mere
temporary residence of abode incident 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 nonim-
migration visa will not be entitled to
reclassification. An application for reclas-
sification as a "resident for tuition pur-
poses" 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
stated in 6C-7.005(1) to the satisfaction of
the registering authority that the appli-
cant 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 accom-
panied by a certified copy of a declaration


of intent to establish legal domicile in the
state, which intent must have been filed
with the Clerk of the Circuit Court, as
provided by Section 222.17, Florida
Statutes. If the request for reclassification
and the necessary documentation are not
received by the fee payment deadline for
the term, the student will not be reclassi-
fied for that term. Students who receive
extensions to the fee payment deadline
are not excused from the residency appli-
cation deadline.
(6) An appeal to a determination that denied
"residency for tuition purposes" may be
initiated by filing 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 be subject, upon determination
of such falsity, to such disciplinary sanc-
tions as may be imposed by the president
of the university.

it has been determined that the university pri-
marily is responsible for the delinquency or that
extraordinary circumstances warrant such
waiver.

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. Upon payment of fees, it

ment of fees prior to the established deadline, or

fee deferments to students in the following cir-
cumstances:
* 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
Student Financial Affairs (financial aid defer-
ments) or the Office of the University Registrar
(veterans). Questions on eligibility for a fee
deferment should be referred to the appropriate
office.

semesters or a proportionately shorter period of
time for shorter terms.
First-time students at the university who
withdraw are eligible to receive a pro-rata

Financial Services. Proper documentation must
be presented when a refund is requested. A
waiting period for processing may be required.
Refunds will be applied against any university
debts.

needs. Personal checks will be accepted at
University Financial Services for the exact
amount of fees and/or other amounts owed the

Student Housing
The University of Florida offers resident
students a unique and exciting residence hall
program. Living on campus is a profitable
educational experience that students long will
remember. The Division of Housing provides
accommodations and programs to meet the
needs of students while promoting the overall
educational goals and objectives of the univer-
sity.
The University of Florida has a large resi-
dent population of both in-state and out-of-state
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 diver-
sity in the student body, it would be a disservice
to students to take a unilateral approach in
developing the residence hall program.







STUDENT AFFAIRS


Therefore, the Division of Housing has devel-
oped a program based upon alternatives and
choices. Students may select from housing
accommodations and environments that best fit
their needs.

GENERAL INFORMATION
All freshmen who are admitted to the univer-
sity 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
credit 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, University Housing Office, Box 112100,
University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611-
2100, or (2) obtaining accommodations in pri-
vate housing. (See Off-Campus Housing later in
this section.)
An application for residence hall space for
students 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 also are 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 is 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 consists
of two rooms-one designed as a study and liv-
ing area, the other as a bedroom with lavatory.
Renovated suites for two in Fletcher and Sledd
Halls are similar except they are smaller, are air-
conditioned, and do not contain lavatories.
Thomas Hall does not have suites for two.

THE RESIDENCE HALL STAFF
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, assistant residence
directors, resident assistants, desk assistants,
and security assistants.
One of the housing staff's primary goals is to
provide an environment that supports the edu-
cational mission of the university. Staff are com-
mitted 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.
Students' main contact with staff is with res-
ident assistants (RAs), co-op officers, hall direc-
tors (HDs), assistant residence directors (ARDs),
residence directors (RDs), and assistant direc-
tors 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 additionally has one
graduate HD or a graduate ARD and one full-
time professional RD who supervises the RAs,
helps to promote a learning environment, and
coordinates area activities. The ADH, a full-time
university 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 also are trained in crisis intervention and in
personal and fire safety and security procedures.

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 partic-
ipation. IRHA represents the collective interests
of all resident students. This organization also
serves as a channel of communication between
residence area government councils, the univer-
sity 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
located in each student room. Students provide
their own touchtone telephones. Cost of local
service is included in the rental rate. Local ser-
vice includes these features: call waiting, speed
calling, and 3-way calling. AnswerCall Service, a
form of Southern Bell's "MemoryCall Service," is
available at minimal cost. Students may contract
separately with the Division of Housing for
voice mail service at an additional charge.
CONVENIENCE STORES: Beaty Breadbas-
ket, Graham Cracker, two convenience stores
owned and operated by Gator Dining Service,

paper, candy, etc., from these stores using their
Gator Dining Cards or cash.
FOOD SERVICE: Although meals are not
included in the housing rent payment, a food
service program is available on campus. Gator
Dining Service, a division of DAKA Restaurants,
maintains cafeterias and snack bars on campus
and offers meal plans. Broward Hall and Hume
Hall have cafeterias. Snack bars are located in
Tolbert Hall and Graham Hall. Cafeterias are
also located in the Reitz Union and the Medical
Center. Gator Card Plus, a Monday through
Friday "all you can eat" meal plan located in
Hume Cafeteria, is one of several meal plan
options available. For further information, please
contact the Gator Dining Service Office, 114 Rec
Center.
REFRIGERATOR RENTAL: Students may
choose to rent a refrigerator or to bring their
own. University Programs Incorporated (UPI), a
privately-owned rental company and autho-
rized university vendor, rents refrigerators to
on-campus residents. It is usually best to make
arrangements for a refrigerator after arriving
on-campus when roommates can share the cost
and decide on available space in the room. The
cost of refrigerators is not included in the room
rent (except Beaty Towers, apartments, and
selected suites for four). Refrigerators may be 12
cubic feet or less.
CUSTODIAL SERVICE: All the residence
halls (except the co-ops) have a staff of trained
custodians assigned to do general cleaning of
public areas, bathrooms, lounges, and hallways.
Other specific tasks are done in order to main-
tain good housekeeping throughout the halls.
Individual room cleaning is the responsibility of
each resident.







STUDENT AFFAIRS

and referral agency for privately-owned rental
housing of all types listed with the university
for referral to students, faculty and staff.







STUDENT AFFAIRS


This office maintains extensive listings of
apartments, houses, and rooming units offered
for rent to students, faculty, and staff. Each
spring, the office compiles a comprehensive list
of major apartment and rooming unit develop-
ments. This list is available to anyone who
requests it in person or by mail from the Off-
Campus Housing Office.
It is recommended that the student make a
personal inspection of the rental facility and
have a conference with the owner (or agent)
prior to making a deposit or signing a lease
agreement. Persons seeking off-campus housing
should plan to arrive in Gainesville well in
advance of the semester in which housing is
needed. For example, fall semester arrange-
ments are possible as early as April, spring
semester after mid-November, etc. For best
results, visit during the week not weekends -
after preliminary information on available
rentals has been obtained.
Inquiries about off-campus housing should
be directed to the Off-Campus Housing Office,
Box 112100, University of Florida, Gainesville,
FL 32611-2100, telephone (904) 392-2161.
Student Financial Affairs
The Office for Student Financial Affairs
(SFA) coordinates and administers most student
financial aid programs at the University of
Florida and provides financial assistance and
counseling to university 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 uses
data provided by the federal need analysis
processor to evaluate financial need for UF stu-
dents from information they and their families
supply on their Free Applications for Federal
Student Aid (FAFSA).
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/or work, singly or as
a package.
WHEN TO APPLY
Applications are available January 1 each
year. 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
Important Deadlines below).


Although SFA cannot award financial aid to
students until they have been admitted to the
university officially. 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. University of Florida financial aid applica-
tion packets are available from most Florida
community colleges and high school guidance
offices. Students also may request financial aid
applications by contacting the University of
Florida's Office for Student Financial Affairs,
P.O. Box 114025, 103 Criser Hall, Gainesville,
Florida 32611-4025, or by calling (904) 392-1275.
Students must complete and submit a
University of Florida Application for Financial Aid
to the Office for Student Financial Affairs and a
Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
to the Federal Student Aid Programs processor
at the address indicated on the form. 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 previ-
ously attended institutions covering all periods
of attendance is required for all transfer stu-
dents for their files to be considered complete.
When completing 1994-1995 forms, students
should provide accurate financial figures, taken
directly from completed 1993 income tax forms.
To comply with federal financial aid require-
ments, the Office for Student Financial Affairs
must verify information students and parents
supply on their application forms. Incorrect
information or incorrectly completed applica-
tion 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
analysis agency. Students who wish to be con-
sidered for campus-based and institutional pro-
grams (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 receives their
application by May 15. Federal Stafford Loan
on-time deadlines are set by semester. For
instance, the on-time deadline for applying for
Federal Family Education Loans (Federal
Stafford, Federal Supplemental Loans to
Students, and Federal PLUS loans) for Fall 1994
is June 1. Individual colleges within the univer-
sity and private organizations have their own
deadlines for applying for aid.


GRADUATE AID
Graduate students at the University of
Florida may be eligible for part-time employ-
ment and loans through SFA and/or for assist-
antships and fellowships through their colleges.
To apply for federal work study and loans, grad-
uate students must follow the procedures 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 fellow-
ships 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 contact civic
clubs, service organizations, private corpora-
tions, and other resources in their home com-
munities.
GRANTS are awarded to undergraduate
students with financial need. The three largest
grant programs available at the university are
the Federal Pell Grant, the Federal Supplemen-
tal 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 Family Education Loans which
include the following: unsubsidized and subsi-
dized Federal Stafford Loans, University of
Florida Institutional Loans, Federal Perkins
Loans, and Federal Supplemental Loans for
Students (FSLS). Parents of dependent under-
graduates also can take out educational loans for
their son or daughter through the Federal PLUS
loan 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.
Loans range from $100 to $10,000 per acade-
mic year at interest rates from 0 percent to 11
percent annually. The actual amount of each
loan, except for Unsubsidized Federal Stafford
Loans and Federal PLUS loans, 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.
Students may borrow up to $400 or the amount
of in-state tuition if they have an acceptable
repayment source. Interest is 1 percent per
month and these loans must be repaid by the
first day of the last month in the semester in







STUDENT AFFAIRS


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, four or five
days a week, and earn at least minimum wage.
Most hiring departments help students arrange
their working hours around their academic
schedules.
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
and is awarded to students as part of their over-
all 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 Center. The
Criser Hall job board is updated daily, and
weekly updates are posted at the other locations.
INFORMATION AND COUNSELING
Student Financial Affairs is open for student
service from Monday through Friday. For
financial aid information, applications and
counseling, students can go to the Criser Hall
offices or call 392-1275. A telephone counselor
also is available daily.
Another resource for financial aid informa-
tion is the NEXUS telephone tape series. Tapes

tion on financial aid programs at the university.
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
case of HIV infection or full-blown AIDS comes
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 and welfare of the indi-
vidual are 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 edu-
cational or work settings.
Further, it is the policy of the university to
provide education which seeks to prevent the
spread of HIV infection, and to encourage those
who are infected or wish to know whether they
are infected to seek early diagnosis and inter-
vention.
The university considers AIDS to be a dis-
ability. 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 organi-
zation for advancing student interests and is
based on mutual confidence among the student
body, the faculty, and the administration.
Considerable authority has been granted the stu-
dent body for the regulation and conduct of stu-
dent affairs. The criterion in granting authority
to the Student Government has been the disposi-
tion of UF students to accept responsibility com-
mensurate with the resources at their disposal to
fulfill its mission, including the allocation of
approximately four-and-one-half million dollars
annually in student activity and service fees,
substantial authority in the regulation of co-cur-
ricular activities and administration of the
Student Honor and Traffic Courts. University
administration, faculty and staff feel that train-
ing in acceptance of responsibility for the con-
duct of student affairs is a valuable part of the
educational growth and development of the
individual student.
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:
legislative, which is embodied in the Student
Senate; judicial, which is embodied in the
Student Honor Court and the Traffic Court; and
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 welcomes
the contributions of religious traditions to the
campus community. The churches, centers, and
organizations associated with the university
offer a rich variety of programs and ministries.
There are also interdenominational and non-
denominational activities fostered by the
Department of Religion and the Campus
Ministries Cooperative.


Social Fraternities: twenty-nine national social
fraternities have established chapters at the uni-
versity. The general work of the fraternities is
supervised by the Interfraternity Council, com-
posed of the president of each fraternity. The
national fraternities at the university are Alpha
Epsilon Pi, Alpha Gamma Rho, Alpha Phi
Alpha, Alpha Tau Omega, Beta Theta Pi, Chi
Phi, Delta Chi, Pi Kappa Phi, Omega Psi Phi,
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.
Eighteen 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 are Alpha Chi Omega,
Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Alpha Xi
Delta, Alpha Epsilon Phi, Alpha Omicron Pi, Chi
Omega, Delta Delta Delta, Delta Gamma, Delta
Phi Epsilon, Kappa Alpha Theta, Kappa Delta,
Kappa Kappa Gamma, Phi Sigma Sigma, Pi Beta
Phi, Sigma Gamma Rho, Sigma Kappa, 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-acade-
mic) organizations.

Academic Honesty
The university 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. Matters of violations of academic
honesty are adjudicated by the Student Honor
Court, the Health Center Student Conduct
Standards Committee, the Student Conduct
Committee, and faculty.

Academic Honesty Guidelines

your grade.

Student Conduct Code
I. Introduction: Students enjoy the rights and
privileges that accrue to membership in a uni-
versity community and are subject to the
responsibilities which accompany that member-
ship. In order to have a system of effective cam-
pus governance, it is incumbent upon all mem-
bers of the campus community to notify appro-
priate officials of any violations of regulations
and to assist in their enforcement. All conduct
regulations of the university are printed and
made available to all students and are applica-
ble upon publication in the Independent Florida

puter system services to an autho-

and vested with jurisdiction by appropri-
ate authority.
VI. Off-Campus Conduct: When a student vio-
lates city, state or federal law by an offense com-
mitted off campus 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 ordinances and
laws. The university will take disciplinary
action against a student for such an off-campus
offense only when it is required by law to do so
or when the nature of the offense is such that in
the judgment of the Director of Student Judicial
Affairs, the continued presence of the student
on campus is likely to interfere with the educa-
tional process or the orderly operation of the
university; or the continued presence of the stu-
dent on campus is likely to endanger the health,
safety, or welfare of the university community
or its property. If the Director of Student
Judicial Affairs determines that disciplinary
action is warranted, the Director of Student
Judicial Affairs shall notify the student in accor-









dance with Rule 6C1-4.16(5). The action of the
university with respect to any off-campus con-
duct shall be made independent of any off-cam-
pus 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 hear-
ing 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 violation.
IX. Summary Hearing: In the event a student
charged with a violation of the Student Conduct
Code, which in the opinion of the Director of
Student Judicial Affairs, if proven, would not
warrant a penalty in excess of two semesters
probation, and the student does not waive his or
her right to a hearing before the appropriate
official or hearing body, the Director of Student
Judicial Affairs may require a hearing to be held
before the chairperson of the Committee on
Student Conduct or the chairperson's desig-
nated representative rather than before the full
committee.
X. Conflict of Jurisdiction: In the event that the
offense is within the jurisdiction of more than
one primary judicial body, the Director of
Student Judicial Affairs shall determine which
judicial 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 expul-
sion 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 univer-
sity property, provided that such pay-
ment shall be limited to the actual cost of
repair or replacement of such property.
F. Reduced or Failing Grade-The student is
given a reduced or failing grade for the
class in which the offense occurred for
violations of the Academic Honesty
Guidelines, but only by the faculty 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 coun-
selor for a specified period of time
and/or complete some other requirement
considered appropriate by the hearing
body based on the nature of the offense.
XII. Appeals: The Student Honor Court,
Residence Hall Conduct Board, the Assistant
Director of Student Judicial Affairs, and the
Coordinator for Residential Judicial Programs
make findings of fact and recommendations con-
cerning innocence or responsibility and imposi-
tion of a judicial sanction to the Director of
Student Judicial Affairs. The student may appeal
the recommendation of the Student Honor
Court, the Residence Hall Conduct Board, the
Assistant Director of Student Judicial Affairs,
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
Committee make findings of fact and recom-
mendations 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.


STUDENT LIFE


Intercollegiate Athletics
For each of the last 10 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. Men compete in baseball, bas-
ketball, cross country, football, golf, swimming,
tennis and track & field, while women compete
in basketball, cross country, golf, gymnastics,
swimming, tennis, track & field and volleyball.
Some of the nation's best athletes don the
orange and blue, as Gator student-athletes have
earned a combined 1,382 All-America honors
since 1980. In addition, 70 Gator student-ath-
letes have represented 14 countries in Olympic
competition, including 21 athletes 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)
won in Spain. Gator athletes have won 48
Olympic medals since 1968, including 24 golds.
Florida competes in the Southeastern Confer-
ence (SEC) along with Alabama, Arkansas,
Auburn, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana State,
Mississippi, Mississippi State, South Carolina,
Tennessee and Vanderbilt. Florida was a charter
member of the SEC in 1933. The 1992-93 acade-
mic year was a banner year for Florida, as the
Gators claimed five SEC Championships and
one national team title (men's golf). Florida has
won both the men's and women's SEC All-Sport
Trophies in each of the last two years (becoming
the first league school to accomplish that feat),
although they did not win a single national team
title in past 12 years. Over the last two years, 13
of Florida's coaches have been named SEC
Coach-of-the-Year.
The university athletic program stretches far
beyond the playing fields, however, as a school-
record 74 Gator student-athletes were recognized
for being named to the SEC's academic Honor
Roll in 1992-93 marking the fifth consecutive
year more than 50 UF student-athletes have been
honored for academic achievement. Since 1980-
81, 512 Gator student-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 academic programs. In an era
when the National Collegiate Athletic
Association (NCAA) estimates that 70 percent of
Division I schools are losing money on intercolle-
giate athletics, the University of Florida Athletic
Association contributed more than $2 million in
1991-92 to help fund university academic
endeavors.
The university athletic program also serves
as a community focal point. In the two-year
period (1991-92/1992-93), Florida drew a total of
1,492,424 combined fans to its athletic events. It
is estimated by the Gainesville Area Chamber of
Commerce that more than $30 million is gener-
ated annually for the community for a six-game
home football schedule. Florida also hosted the
NCAA Women's Tennis Champion-ships. In
addition, UF has been the site of NCAA or SEC
championships/regional events in baseball,
gymnastics, swimming, track & field and volley-

ball, along with hosting basketball games in the
National Invitational Tournament.
When talk turns to facilities, the University
of Florida's centrally-located athletic complex is
among the nation's best.
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 end-
zone 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 and 1992
seasons saw UF draw the top 12 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 Uni-
versity Athletic Association was honored with a
first place award by the City of Gainesville
Beautification Board. The award takes into
account the contribution a structure makes to a
city, its design, the overall improvement of an
area, and the structure's visibility and landscap-
ing.
Since 1986, Florida has had numerous capital
improvements, including the major expansion of
the football stadium and the new tennis, track &
field, baseball, golf and swimming facilities. No
state funding was involved in the university's
recent $17 million football stadium expansion.
Another sign of Florida's commitment to
athletic excellence is the 12,000-seat Stephen C.
O'Connell Center an air-inflated dome which
houses Gator basketball and transforms into an
indoor track facility while also being home to
national powerhouse swimming and gymnastics
teams.
Gators just love their sports, as there are 70
courts and outdoor playing fields on the Univer-
sity of Florida campus and the O'Connell Center
and Florida Gymnasium are available for indoor
sports. In all, Florida offers more than 60 intra-
mural 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 voluntar-
ily in the program which has become an impor-
tant phase of extracurricular activities on the
campus and offers opportunity for exercise,
recreation, social contacts and friendly competi-
tion.
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, 200 Student Recreation Fitness Center, at
392-0581. The Gator One card is needed for par-
ticipation be sure to bring it with you.

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, and C, Graduate,
Residence Hall A and B, and Sorority.
Individuals also may compete in activities, such
as swimming, bowling, golf, track, tennis, rack-
etball, squash and wallyball. T-shirts are
awarded to winners in each division.

SPORTS CLUBS
The Sports Club program provides struc-
tured, competitive athletic opportunities
among institutions in non-varsity sports. The
program offers instruction, recreation, and
competition in approximately 35 different
clubs. Individual sports clubs that represent
the University of Florida are assisted by the
Sports Club coordinator to organize, utilize
facilities, check out equipment, and allocate
general resources for participation.

LAKE WAUBURG
The Lake Wauburg recreational activities
are located eight miles south of the university
on U.S. 441, and are available for use by stu-
dents, faculty, staff and their guests. The specific
activities and facilities available at Lake
Wauburg North include sailing, boardsailing,
canoeing, crewing, fishing boats, sunbathing,
picnic facilities such as tables and grills, and
sporting equipment and swimming.
The south end of the lake, located one mile
farther south on U.S. 441, offers 60 acres of land
in its natural state. For your relaxation, there are
sunbathing decks overlooking the lake and a
playing field which can accommodate every
field sport imaginable. A frisbee golf course
encompasses the park for your playing plea-
sure.
In addition, three areas are available for
reservation to university groups. The lodge and
pavilions can house approximately 100 persons
each, and each of these areas is provided with
barbecue grills and tables to accommodate park
guests. Call (904) 466-4112 for reservations.
All activities are free and open year-round
from noon to 6:00 p.m. Tuesday through Friday

Sunday. Both facilities are closed on Mondays.

SOUTHWEST RECREATION COMPLEX
The newest addition to the growing recre-
ational facility complex on the campus is located
in the southwest part of the university at the cor-
ner of Hull Road and Bledsoe Drive. The new
26-acre facility houses much-needed program
facilities.
The field house contains sports areas for bas-
ketball, volleyball, badminton, aerobics, club


activities, a large weight and fitness room, as
well as six racquetball courts. Shower facilities
and lockers also are provided. There is an equip-
ment room and appropriate office space.
The outdoor areas consist of a new quad-
softball complex, three basketball courts, ten ten-
nis courts, a small utility field, and four sand
volleyball courts. All outdoor facilities are
lighted for evening use.
The new facility is scheduled to be available
for use beginning Fall 1994. Students, faculty
and staff should be reminded to bring their
Gator One card for participation.
Student Recreation &

mation call the fitness center office at 392-3461.
Parking and Traffic Regulations
Any student of the University of Florida is
eligible to register and operate a vehicle on cam-
pus. Parking eligibility is determined by the stu-
dent's local address and academic classification.
Students desiring to register a vehicle on
campus must be registered for class and pre-
sent their vehicle registration to the Parking
Administrative Services Decal Office. Rules and
regulations are available at the time of the vehi-
cle registration, and all registrants should
familiarize themselves thoroughly with the
rules and regulations before operating or park-
ing a motorized vehicle on campus.
Illegally operated or parked vehicles will be
issued a citation. Failure to respond to a citation
within the prescribed time will result in addi-
tional costs, failure to receive transcripts, failure
to register for classes, and the towing of the
vehicle.
Any questions regarding the use of vehicles
on campus should be directed to the Parking
Administrative Services Decal Office (392-2241).










Academic Regulations

Each student is responsible for becoming familiar
with the rules and regulations of the university and
for applying them as appropriate. Additional infor-
mation relative to academic rules, conduct, gradua-
tion, social activities, failure in studies, etc., may be
found in the sections of this catalog containing regu-
lations of the separate colleges and schools and in the
Schedule of Courses.





Classification of Students
Students are classified by the Office of the
University Registrar each semester:

Classification Explanation

0 Special transient students,
qualified high school stu-
ents and other nondegree-
students who have been per-
mitted to register at the
University of Florida.
1 Students with fewer than 30
credits earned.
2 Students who have earned 30
credits or more, but fewer
than 60 credits.

3 Students who have earned 60
credits or more, but fewer
than 90 credits.
4 Students who have earned 90
credits or more.

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 neces-
sary for successful performance and progression
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
Associate 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
complete the test satisfactorily will not be
awarded the Associate of Arts nor will they be
admitted to upper division status in state uni-
versities in Florida. CLAST requirements also
apply to students 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, 32611-7345, phone (904)
392-1715, can tell you how and when to apply to
take the CLAST.
The University Advising Center located
at 358 Little Hall, University of Florida,
Gainesville, Florida, 32611-8135, 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 assures the confidentiality of
student educational records in accordance with
State University System rules, state statutes, and
the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act
of 1974, known as the Buckley Amendment.
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 Information
form, available through the Office of the
University Registrar.
In general, present or former students have
the right to review their own educational
records for information and to determine accu-
racy. A photo I.D. or other equivalent docu-
mentation or personal recognition by the custo-
dian 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,
International 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 complete sat-
isfactorily with grades of C or higher, 6 credits
of course work which involves numerical analy-
sis, 3 credits of which must be in mathematics,
at or above the level of college algebra. The
other 3 credits may be in mathematics, statistics,
appropriate courses in computer information
sciences, or PHI 2100, PHI 3130, or EGM 3311.
The Communication-Computation course
work must be completed satisfactorily 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
Program (CLEP) requirements in mathematics
shall be allowed to exempt three (3) credits of
mathematics 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, also are
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 various 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.







ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISIONS


Courses completed with grades of D or
higher 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.
Transient 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.
Procedures 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
credits and the twelve-week summer term is 12
credits. Postbaccalaureate students are consid-
ered undergraduates.
The minimum load for full-time undergrad-
uate student benefits from the Veterans
Administration or Social Security Administra-
tion is 12 credits for fall, spring and Summer C
and 6 credits for the six-week summer terms.
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.


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.
Students 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
Opportunities 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
Registrar 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 completed
before 4:00 p.m. on the last day of late regis-
tration; failure to register by that deadline
will result in the assessment of a late regis-
tration fee.
The same grading system is applicable to
degree and nondegree students. Credit
earned while in a 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 stu-
dent in no way implies future approval for
admission as a degree-seeking student at the
university. To be considered for degree-
seeking enrollment, nondegree students
must apply for admission.
Nondegree enrollment status will be denied
any student under suspension from a post-
secondary institution or not in good stand-
ing at any institution previously enrolled,
including the University of Florida, even if
the student has subsequently attended
another institution. Nondegree students are
subject to other regulations and restrictions
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
to attend classes under the university calen-
dar. Nondegree students will pay appropri-
ate UF fees based on course level and num-
ber of credits for which they are registered.

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 student at another institution.
Transient student forms to be used for pre-
approval of transfer 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 acade-
mic 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
waiver of academic regulations for prior terms,
should be presented to the Office of the
University Registrar which will refer them to
the University 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
Committee require any college or school to grant
a degree by waiving any of these regulations.









Withdrawals
Withdrawal is the formal process of drop-
ping all courses in a term. Any student who
withdraws after the published deadline shall be
assigned grades of WF in all courses and will be
subject to suspension and exclusion regulations.
Students who absent themselves from UF with-
out official withdrawal normally will receive
failing grades at the end of the term.
Students on academic probation who with-
draw from UF prior to the deadline will continue
on probation until their grade point deficit is
reduced to zero.
Students on University Admissions
Committee probation must meet the terms of
their probation.
Students should contact the Office for
Student Services for procedural information to
withdraw for medical reasons.




Administrative Provisions
Students are not authorized to attend class
unless they are registered officially 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 laboratory
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 students dropped
from courses or laboratories under this provision
by posting a notice in the department office.
Students may request reinstatement on a space-
available basis if documented evidence excusing
the absences is presented to the department
chair.
NOTE: Students must not assume that they
are dropped automatically 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, profes-
sional 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
college petition deadline, students may petition
the University Senate Committee on Student
Petitions to drop a course for medical reasons.
A student should contact the Office for Student
Services, Division of Student Affairs, for proce-
dural information to withdraw for medical rea-
sons.

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.
Laboratory sections are exempt from this policy.

Religious Holidays
The Board of Regents policy statement gov-
erns university policy regarding observance of
religious holidays:


ATTENDANCE POLICIES

Students shall be excused from class to
observe a religious holy day of their faith,
upon notifying their instructor.
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 not 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 recorded permanently by
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.

the grade point average; however, if the I* or N*







GRADES AND GRADING POLICY


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. For purposes of
determining grade point average after the initial
receipt of an I* or N* grade, the three summer
terms are considered collectively as a single
term. I* and N* grades are not assigned to grad-
uating students; they receive grades of I or NG.
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

Grade Point Averaging
and Deficits
The term "average," as used in any univer-
sity 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
attempted. For the grade point average compu-
tation 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 number of
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

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.
However, 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:

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
University 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 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
option is in addition to courses which are taught
only on a S-U basis. Courses taken to fulfill com-
munication or computation requirements
(Gordon 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 to a letter grade.














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 available
in upper division programs must be increased,
either through expansion or through more lim-
ited admissions of transfer students not covered
by the articulation agreement. The criteria for
admission to upper division academic programs
will be the same for native students and for eligi-
ble community college transfer students.
At their option, colleges may admit condi-
tionally native (first-time-in-college, FTIC)
freshman and sophomore students. Such stu-
dents will carry college designations and major
designations. Students seeking majors in col-
leges which do not admit freshmen or sopho-
mores will carry an LS designation along with
the designation of their probable major.
Students undecided about their majors can
choose an undecided category. These categories
represent the broad fields of science and engi-
neering (USE), humanities and letters (UHL),
and social and behavioral (USB).
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. Students who meet the
upper level performance standards will be on
track for entrance into their academic program
of choice. These published performance stan-
dards may include grade point averages, grades
in required prerequisite or preprofessional
courses, auditions, interviews, portfolios, etc.,
and for teacher education curricula, SAT or
ACT scores. The performance standard set for
60 hours assures acceptance into major pro-
grams 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 reap-
ply for admission to their college of choice.
Students falling between the upper and
lower level standards at the 30- and 45-hour
benchmarks will be required to seek advisement
from the University Advising Center.
Students whose academic performance falls
below the lower benchmark levels at 30 or 45
hours will be returned automatically 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 University Advising 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 University
Advising Center will endeavor to match the
performance of such students with other major
programs.
A student can be kept in the college "change"
category for no more than one semester. If the
student'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 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.
The University of Florida policies on acade-
mic standing, probation and suspension are
based on the possibility that a student can over-
come academic difficulty and make appropriate
progress toward a degree.

Regulation of Academic Standards
The University of Florida's Senate estab-
lishes regulations for academic probation and
suspension 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 notations on the stu-
dent's academic record; some of these notations
can be permanent.

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 student's
academic achievements; to provide occasion for
counseling; and to give students whose ultimate
success is in question further opportunity to


demonstrate their ability to meet academic
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 acade-
mic progress has been demonstrated.
Undergraduate students with less than a 2.0
cumulative grade point average for
University 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
ultimately will not 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 university
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 suspen-
sion will be placed on final scholarship pro-
bation. If the grade point deficit is still 15 or
more at the end of the term, students will be
suspended permanently without possibility
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 accred-
ited Florida public community college may,
upon approved readmission, appeal to the
University Committee on Student Petitions
for acceptance of transfer credit earned. The
petitions committee may, upon the recom-
mendation of the college, approve transfer of
that credit.







ACADEMIC PROGRESS REGULATIONS


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 com-
pleted the College Level Academic Skills Test
(CLAST) or the Communication-Computation
Requirements (Gordon Rule) by the comple-
tion of 60 semester hours of credit are ineligible
for admission into an upper division degree
program until those requirements have been
satisfied.
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 published deadline.
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 commence-
ment.
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 (reg-
istration for and completion of at least one
course for one term in an academic year)
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 graduation
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 meet-
ing of the college faculty voting on the can-
didates 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 exten-
sion credits during any academic year.
Students may not take more than 9 extension
credits during a semester.
No more than 12 of the last 36 credits neces-
sary 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 cata-
log 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
courses that involve substantial writing (a total
of 24,000 words) and 6 credits of course work
'that involve numerical analyses. Refer to the


Communication and Computation Requirement
section 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. College-specific graduation require-
ments, in addition to these minimums, are listed
in each college's section.
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
the Repeat Course Work section. 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.
At least 25 percent of the credit hours
applied toward a baccalaureate degree must
be earned while in residence at the Univer-
sity of Florida.
Students are required to complete the last 30
credits toward the baccalaureate degree in
residence at the college from which the stu-
dent 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.
Multiple Undergraduate Degrees: Two or more
baccalaureate degrees may be conferred upon
an individual provided that each additional
degree represents at least 30 credits of addi-
tional work and fulfills curriculum and resi-
dence 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 supe-
rior students admission to the university follow-
ing completion of the junior year in high school.
Applications will be considered on an individ-
ual 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 taking
on-campus courses simultaneously at both the
University of Florida and another institution. If
the parent institution is a Florida high school,
then the student may qualify for tuition-exempt
high school/college dual credit enrollment and
may receive textbooks or other necessary course
materials on a lend-return basis. There must be
an articulation agreement between the Univer-
sity of Florida and the home county school
board, developmental research school or other
secondary school in compliance with S.229.808
and a secondary curriculum pursuant to
S.232.246. This agreement should describe
recording of grades and payment for and dispo-
sition of instructional materials.
Qualified high school students will be
enrolled as nondegree students and credits
earned prior to high school graduation may be
accepted subsequently for advanced standing
and degree-credit when the student is admitted
to the university.
For more information, high school students
may refer to Academic Regulations (especially
the sections on Dual Enrollment, Nondegree
Registration 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
Baccalaureate higher- and subsidiary-level sub-
jects. Six semester hours of appropriate credit
will be granted for each higher-level exam score
of 5 or higher. 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 awarded three semester hours of credit.
Subsidiary exams with scores of 4 earn one
semester hour of credit.

dence of completion of a college-level course
taken in high school. If the results of the exami-
nation meet the minimum requirements listed
below, the student may receive university credit
for courses covering similar material. The
course numbers in parentheses indicate the
approximate University of Florida course equiv-
alencies that will appear on the student's UF

AP English, history, art history, government
and politics, and psychology count toward
completion of the Gordon Rule communica-
tion requirement.
AP mathematics and computer science count
toward completion of the Gordon Rule com-
putation requirement.
AP French, Spanish, German, and Latin count
toward completion of the College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences language requirement.


College Level Examination Program (CLEP): The
College Level Examination Program is another
type of credit by examination opportunity spon-
sored by the College Entrance Examination
Board. By presenting appropriate scores, stu-
dents may receive as many as 30 semester hours
credit toward graduation. Their scores on the
CLEP general examinations must meet the mini-
mums 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 available on campus


periodically 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 for the
acceptance of transfer credit), the University of
Florida awards credit for CLEP examinations
based on the following scaled scores:

CLEP credit may not be used to fulfill the
university's General Education requirements.
Students who score a minimum 490 or higher
on the Natural Sciences examination will
receive three semester hours of credit in both
biological and physical science.
Students should consider seriously their deci-
sion about taking the CLEP general examina-
tion 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 essay option so that their scores will
be based in part on a writing sample.
CLEP Subject Area Examinations: Additional
credit may be awarded for satisfactory scores on
certain CLEP subject area examinations. If
English subject examinations (Freshman English
or English Composition) are taken, the essay
option must be taken for English credit. A mini-
mum score ensures that the essay portion of the
exam is eligible for review by UF staff evalua-
tors. This score in itself does not guarantee that
English credit will be received. A favorable
review must be received on the essay. A mini-
mum score of 51 is required for college compo-
sition and a minimum score of 51 is required for
freshman English. The maximum credit allowed

Academic Advisement

Mission
The University of Florida is committed to
the concept of a strong program of quality acad-
emic advising for all of its students. The mis-
sion of academic advising is to serve as an ongo-
ing process which assists students in the attain-
ment of their educational goals through the
development and evaluation of their educa-
tional plans. To progress through a degree pro-
gram satisfactorily, students must have avail-
able not only accurate information about
requirements and procedures tailored to indi-
vidual educational needs, but also a knowledge-
able, caring adviser capable of reducing the sys-
tem to human scale. The advising system at the
University of Florida is a diverse and often com-
plex one, involving personnel at the university,
college, 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
Florida, through the Office of the Provost, is
responsible for:
ensuring that academic advising is fully rec-
ognized, emphasized, duly supported by
budget and resources, and periodically eval-
uated;
providing students, faculty, and other advis-
ing staff with accurate information in the
catalog, Schedule of Courses, and other pub-
lications;
coordinating the advising efforts of colleges
and schools;


* synchronizing advising with other units on
campus, such as the Career Resource Center,
Counseling Center, Office of Instructional
Resources, Office of the University Registrar,
and the Office for Student Financial Affairs.
The University of Florida, through the
University Advising Center, is responsible for:
* acting as an information and referral center
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 coor-
dinators for each program to direct students
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 ultimately
is responsible for ensuring that adequate advise-
ment is available and accessible to all students
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
university mission and consistent with stu-
dent needs and program characteristics of
the college;
shall be responsible for providing the
resources and faculty incentives necessary to
maintain an effective and efficient advise-
ment network;
shall be responsible for assuring that student
advisement is part of the regular workload of
every full-time faculty member. This advis-
ing may include meeting individually with
students to provide information about course
requirements and student progress, and


working with students on independent pro-
jects of student and faculty interest. Deans
and/or department chairs, however, may
recognize differential advising responsibili-
ties 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 depart-
mental requirements and opportunities.

Student Responsibilities
Students ultimately are responsible for
knowing and fulfilling all university, college,
and major requirements for graduation, as
stated in the catalog. In order to meet that goal
they are responsible for:
* attending the summer Preview or other ori-
entation program prior to their first semester
of attendance;
taking full advantage of the opportunities
for academic advisement provided by uni-
versity offices and programs;
declaring a major area of interest, as soon as
one crystallizes, to ensure proper advise-
ment.
conferring with an 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;
maintaining their own personal academic
records, including the catalog of their year of
admission, transcripts, degree audits, evalu-
ation of transfer work, and notes of previous
advising visits;
evaluating (if desired) the academic advising
programs and individual advisers by com-
pleting forms provided by the University
Advising Center or by writing to the depart-
ment chair, the director of the advising cen-
ter, or the individual responsible for the
respective academic advising unit.









Lower Division

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

General Statement
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is
the gateway college for entering freshmen and
other 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.
Students should apply for admission to the col-
lege of their major at an appropriate point, usu-
ally when they have earned 64 credits, but ear-
lier in the case of some colleges. Each college
specifies admissions requirements in its section
of the catalog. MAPP will allow for automatic
admission of qualified students at 60 hours.

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
Summer A semesters also will have access to
advisement conferences as part of the registra-
tion 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 academic progress.
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 acade-
mic advisers available for discussion of the
problem. Advisers also are available during reg-
ular business hours in the University Advising
Center, 358 Little Hall, to help students define
any other academic problems and to find correc-
tive 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 A.A.
certificates and registration after earning 60
hours are contingent upon students passing all
subtests 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 addition, 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 mathe-
matics, 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. Courses taken to ful-
fill Gordon Rule requirements cannot be taken
S-U; grades of C or higher are required. AP
examinations in English, history, art history,
government and politics, and psychology count
toward Gordon Rule communication require-
ments. AP examinations in math and computer
science count toward Gordon Rule computation
requirements.

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 enhance their 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 exten-
sively, although not exclusively, in the depart-
ments of art, Germanic & Slavic languages & lit-
eratures, classics, African & Asian languages &
literatures, English, music, and romance lan-
guages & literatures.
Historical and Philosophical Studies
(H)-By exploring the nature of history and cul-
ture, 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 exten-
sively, although not exclusively, in the depart-
ments of history, religion, philosophy, anthro-
pology, architecture, and Germanic & Slavic
languages & literatures.
International Studies and Diversity (I)-The
General Education program at UF recognizes
that, beyond the basic areas of academic study,
there are other contexts of knowing: e.g., lan-
guage, gender, culture, race, ethnicity, and class.
The International Studies and Diversity require-
ment 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, eth-
nicity, and class.
Courses in this area can be found exten-
sively, although not exclusively, in the depart-
ments of history, classics, African & Asian lan-
guages & literatures, romance languages & liter-
atures, Germanic & Slavic languages & litera-
tures, art, anthropology, political science, reli-
gion, 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
processes by which individuals and groups allo-
cate resources.
Courses in this area can be found extensively,
although not exclusively, in the departments of
psychology, political science, anthropology, crim-
inal 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. Courses in mathematical sciences can be
found in the departments of mathematics, statis-
tics, computer & information sciences, philoso-
phy, 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 exten-
sively, although not exclusively, in the depart-
ments of physics, plant pathology, zoology,
botany, geology, psychology, chemistry, astron-
omy, environmental engineering, geography,
soil and water sciences, and entomology &
nematology.
The course offerings section of the
Schedule of Courses lists specific courses for
each category, designated by code: i.e., C =
Composition, I = International Studies &
Diversity, etc., in the column headed "G.E."

TOTAL CREDIT REQUIREMENTS: 45
Please note the following:
(1) The General Education program permits
students to take courses at the 1000, 2000, 3000,
or 4000 level; in most colleges, students can pur-
sue completion of these requirements through-
out their undergraduate experience.
(2) First-year students generally are 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 Sciences),
P (Physical Sciences), and B (Biological Sciences)
include the study of pure science (e.g., physics,
chemistry, and calculus) and their technological
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 requirements.
(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) and Inter-
national Baccalaureate (IB) credit can be
counted toward completion of the General
Education requirements.
(7) CLEP credit may not be used to satisfy
General Education requirements.

Associate of Arts Certificate
Although not required, students may receive
an A.A. certificate. The Associate of Arts must
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 cer-
tificate 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 goals. 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
Education courses and standards for admission
for each college or school may be found begin-
ning on the catalog page indicated.

General Academic Regulations
Normal Loads: The normal course load is 12-
16 credit hours. First-semester freshmen may
wish to consider a load of 12 hours. Loads
above 17 hours must be approved by the
Director of University Advising, 358 Little Hall.
Adding/Dropping/Withdrawing: Courses
may be dropped or added during the drop/add
period without penalty. After the drop/add
period, a course may be dropped up to the date
established in the university calendar. A grade
of W will appear on the transcript.
All drops after the drop/add period are sub-
ject to the following restrictions:
No more than two (2) drops will be permitted
to students while classified lower division.
Final approval to drop a course must be
obtained from the University Advising
Center, 358 Little Hall, or a student's college.






LOWER DIVISION REQUIREMENTS


After the deadline students may petition to
drop a course provided they can document
sufficient reasons to drop, usually hardship
or medical condition occurring after the
deadline.
Failure to attend a class will not be
accepted as constituting a drop; the only proce-
dure for dropping a class is the proper process-
ing of a schedule change form, which the stu-
dent 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 matter
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
many 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 Health and Legal Professions Advising
in 358 Little Hall acts as a clearinghouse for
information and LSAT/LSDAS materials relat-
ing to prelaw preparation and application proce-
dures. The office serves as a central office for col-
lecting and forwarding letters of evaluation for
applicants to law schools. Files for letters of eval-
uation 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 premed-
ical, predental, or preoptometry student to
major in any program offered by any depart-
ment 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
attend a workshop offered through the Office of
Health and Legal Professions Advising, 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 Health and
Legal Professions Advising acts as a clearing-
house for information and application forms
relating to medical, dental and optometry
school requirements and admission procedures.
The office serves as a central office for collecting
and forwarding letters of evaluation and certifi-
cation to the professional schools selected by the
applicants.
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 also will 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
Health and Legal Professions Advising. The list
includes courses in biochemistry, chemistry,
microbiology, and zoology which should be
taken in addition 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 programs of
the National Preprofessional Honor Society
(Alpha Epsilon Delta), the Minority Preprofes-
sional Association (MPA), and the Preprofes-
sional Service Organization (PSO) at the
University of Florida. More details about these
programs and applications are available at the
Office of Health and Legal Professions Advising.
Students in upper division colleges must be
certain that they also are making satisfactory
progress toward a recognized major in the col-
lege.
CLEP Credit: Generally, it is 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.

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 acade-
mic performance. Invitations are sent after
admission to the university to all students who
have scored 1280 or above on the Scholastic
Aptitude Test, or a 30 composite on the
Enhanced American College Test. Further, they
must have an academic high school grade point
average of not less than 3.6 as computed by the
university. These students are eligible for spe-
cial 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 acade-
mic capabilities during the fall semester. Honors
requirements are not in addition to General
Education requirements, but may be used in sat-
isfaction of those requirements. The small sizes
of the classes and the high quality of the stu-
dents 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 aver-
age and, in addition, submit a thesis, a research
project or other creative work. Upon evaluation
by the department or other responsible group,
the student will be recommended for high or
highest honors.


Eligibility for graduation with honors:
Students 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.

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 to 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.
Interpersonal skills and professional judgment
are important elements in the practice of
accounting. Although accounting is demanding
and requires high motivation in order to suc-
ceed, the rewards are high.

Scholarships
Information about general financial aid can
be obtained from the Office for Student
Financial Affairs, University of Florida,
Gainesville, Florida 32611-4025. Students who
wish to be considered for scholarships awarded
to fifth-year accounting students should obtain
application forms from the Fisher School of
Accounting offices and should complete them
early in the spring term of their fourth year.

program.
Please consult the University Advising
Center in 358 Little Hall for a copy of the Fisher
School of Accounting's current benchmark stan-
dards.
Lower Division UF Students: To be consid-
ered for admission into the Fisher School of
Accounting, a student classified as a lower divi-
sion student at UF must meet the following
requirements:
(a) completed at least 60 semester hours of
course work at the time of admission into the
school;
(b) completed at least 12 of the 15 hours of pre-
professional course work at the time of admis-
sion into the school;
(c) completed ACG 2021, or an equivalent
course, with a grade of B or better at the time of
application to the school;
(d) completed MAC 3233, or an equivalent
course at the time of application to the school;
(e) earned a grade point average that meets the
current minimum benchmark standard; and
(f) passed all parts of the College Level
Academic Skills Test (CLAST).
Students who meet the requirements above
and whose grade point average meets the
"ideal" standard will be admitted into the
Fisher School of Accounting.
Admission standards are always subject to
change. Please contact the Fisher School of
Accounting in 267 Business (392-0155) to obtain
information on the current standards.
Community College Transfer Students: The
eligibility standards for admission of lower divi-
sion UF students (see above) apply equally to
transfer students who have received their AA
degree from a Florida public community college
and who have passed all parts of the CLAST
Test.
Transfer students who choose to complete a
two-semester Principles of Accounting sequence
(ACG 2001 and ACG 2011) must earn a grade of
B or better in each course prior to applying to
the school.
Community college students are cautioned
that professional course work that is required as
part of the third, fourth or fifth year should only
be taken at the University of Florida.
Community college transfer students are
advised to avoid such courses as Business Law,
Principles of Marketing, Principles of Finance,
Principles of Management, Principles of
Insurance, Principles of Real Estate, Personnel
Management, and accounting courses beyond
the introductory level. A maximum of four


semester credits may be allowed for courses
taken during the first two years which are avail-
able only as third- and fourth-year professional
courses in the College of Business Administra-
tion at the University of Florida. Any credit
granted for such work will be granted only in
the form of undistributed elective credit. In no
case may such courses be in accounting. In the
case where a student wishes to waive an upper
division core course and substitute a commu-
nity 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 A.A. degree and
who have passed all parts of CLAST.
Prospective students from other than SUS
institutions or applicants who have not com-
pleted their A.A. 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
requirements should be avoided prior to enter-
ing 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 also is
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 indicates the
deadline.
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 course
load of fewer 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 com-
pleted 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 request the S-U Option
only for those courses which will be counted as
free electives. Courses taken to satisfy commu-
nication 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 regulations con-
cerning unsatisfactory academic performance,
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 only courtesy registration follow-
ing the receipt of the second sub-C grade
will be allowed for students in this category.
The student's accounting grade point aver-
age, 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 cumula-
tive grade point average falls below 2.0 and
then remains there after a further term of
enrollment.
The student withdraws from the university
three times after admission to 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 consecutive semesters of
enrollment, and
Students who are not in the Fisher School
of Accounting who earn two grades
below C in accounting courses numbered
above 3000 will be denied further regis-
tration in such accounting courses.
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 university
drop/add period will be permitted for any







ACCOUNTING


reason in a student's upper-division aca-
demic career.
After the deadline, students may petition the
university's Committee on Student Petitions
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 three
times after admission to the school.
GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS: To
receive the Bachelor of Science in Accounting,
a student must complete the following satisfac-
torily:
* 64 semester credit hours of lower division
requirements;
An approved program in accounting;
Upper division core courses; and
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
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.
To graduate with honors, students must
earn a 3.2 grade point average (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:
Students who become juniors (a classification of
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 established in the 1990-91 catalog.

Requirements For Admission

Listed below are the specific requirements
for admission to this college. In the event enroll-
ment quotas become necessary because of lim-
ited space or teaching resources, selection of
those admitted will be on the basis of past acad-
emic performance.
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:
* Complete the General Education Require-
ments of the university as described in the
Lower Division section of this catalog; or,
complete an Associate of Arts degree.
Complete the preprofessional requirements
of the college for the major field.
The following recommendations will serve
as a guide to expedite transfer to the College of
Agriculture and comply with the above require-
ments:
* 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 to
develop a program of study that will satisfy
the above requirements. In general, they
should:
Complete the two-year university parallel
program at their community college.
Satisfy the General Education requirements
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, or document an
equivalent level of proficiency.
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; a
minimum of 30 semester hours are required;
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 students.
In addition, postbaccalaureate students must
comply with college and university rules and
regulations and meet all deadlines as printed in
the catalog for undergraduate students.

General Regulations
STUDENT RESPONSIBILITY: The student
must assume full 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). Form 1 and the course
request registration form are signed by the
adviser and the white copy of Form 1 and the
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 reg-







COLLEGES


ister for additional hours if, in the opinion of the
academic adviser and the dean, the student's
academic record justifies this. Students may reg-
ister for fewer 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 com-
pleted in residence in the College of Agricul-
ture. In special cases this requirement may be
waived by the dean's office. Students may com-
plete 12 semester credit hours by extension or
correspondence among the 30 semester credits
of residence work required for the baccalaureate
degree but such work must have prior approval
by the major 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
Agriculture may take on the S-U basis only
those courses which will be counted as electives
in fulfilling the requirements for the degree.
PROBATION AND SUSPENSION: Students
who do not make satisfactory academic
progress and drop 15 deficit grade points below
a 2.0 average will be suspended for one term
and then may return for a term, but they must
lower their deficit to below 15 points or face
final suspension.
DROP POLICY: Courses may be dropped
during the drop/add period without penalty.
Thereafter, courses may be dropped only by
College of Agriculture petition until the dead-
line for college petitions. 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 classi-
fied 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 withdrawing from their full
course load must contact the Office of the
University Registrar.
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 division
the following program of study. The sequence
in which courses are to be taken will depend
upon the department in which a student takes
his or her upper division major and will be
determined by department advisers in the
College of Agriculture.

COLLEGES


Agricultural Engineering
BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN ENGINEERING
(AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERING)
The Agricultural Engineering curriculum is
offered cooperatively by the colleges of
Agriculture and Engineering. Students in this
major receive basic training in engineering and
agriculture so that they are prepared to solve
the specialized and unique engineering prob-
lems of agricultural production and processing
systems and the management and conservation
of agricultural land and water resources. Since
engineering problems in agriculture relate to
biological production and processing of biologi-
cal products, training in agricultural and biolog-
ical courses is required. Students desiring
careers in Agricultural Engineering will register
in the College of Engineering. Refer to that col-
lege for curriculum.

Agricultural Education and
Communication
The Agricultural Education and Communi-
cation curriculum prepares students for careers
in vocational agriculture, the Cooperative
Extension Service, and agricultural communica-
tions. Three curricula are offered in the depart-
ment: teaching, extension, and agricultural com-
munications. Each requires a common core of
courses in technical agriculture and professional
education. In addition, three co-majors with
other departments are offered and an extension
minor is provided. Department advisers will
advise students in the selection of electives and
requirements to meet career goals.
CURRICULUM I: TEACHING OPTION
The teaching option provides the student
with the basic courses for vocational agriculture
teacher certification in Florida. In addition to
these courses, a graduate must apply to the
Florida Department of Education for certifica-
tion. Each applicant who applies for a full-time
Florida teaching certificate must pass the
Florida Teacher Certification Examination, and
have a 2.5 GPA on all technical agriculture
course work.

Entomology and Nematology
Entomology and nematology are biological
sciences dealing with insects, mites, ticks, spi-
ders and nematodes. The curriculum provides
training in both disciplines. The department
offers curriculum in three broad areas: biology
education, urban pest management, and pest
management and crop protection.
Students interested in teaching biological
sciences may satisfy the biological science edu-
cation certification requirements through the
biology education curriculum. This curriculum


also satisfies the preprofessional requirements
for medical and dental school. The pest man-
agement curriculum provides interdisciplinary
studies with emphasis on pest management
and crop and animal production. A pest man-
agement and plant protection certificate is
available through this program. In the urban
pest management curriculum, students are
trained about arthropods, nematodes, plant dis-
eases and weeds with reference to problems in
and around residential and commercial prop-
erty. Emphasis also is given to a business cur-
riculum so that students are prepared for man-
agement duties in the pest control industry.
Students desiring to enter the department
should contact the undergraduate adviser for
more detailed program information.

Food Science and Human
Nutrition

The Department of Food Science and
Human Nutrition offers three curricula: food
science, dietetics and nutritional sciences.
Students in these curricula take a common core
of courses, required courses for the concentra-
tion, and electives. Students should consult a
department adviser 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 the food industry or government agencies.







AGRICULTURE


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 engi-
neering.
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
background in the biological and chemical sci-
ences, and prepares students for graduate study
and research in nutritional sciences and related
fields. The curriculum is approved as a prepro-
fessional curriculum for medical, dental or other
professional health schools.

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 provides a back-
ground necessary for work in research or diag-
nostic 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
grades of B or better in at least four credits of
MCB 4905 and in one of the following courses:
MCB 4303L, MCB 5458 or PCB 5136L.
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 lev-
els 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 be
supervised by a faculty member in the depart-
ment. A research project that is microbiology or
cell biology in nature may be supervised by a
faculty member not in the department. For this
option, a one-page description of the proposed
undergraduate research must be submitted to
the undergraduate coordinator for approval
prior to registering in MCB 4905 and initiating
the research project.

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 to graduate school or to
work in biotechnological firms and university or
government research laboratories.
Agricultural Technology Option prepares
students for commodity, seed and agrichemical
industries in which they diagnose and recom-
mend controls for plant diseases or test new

Approved Electives.....................................24 to 25

Electives are chosen in consultation with the
student's adviser. Specific areas of emphasis
include: soil, water, and land use (with accent
on natural resources and the environment);
environmental soil and water management
(with accent on agricultural and other applied
aspects of soil and water science); physical sci-
ences (with accent on chemistry, physics, and
mathematics); and biological sciences (with
accent on microbiology, botany, and/or other
biological sciences).







AGRICULTURE


The student is encouraged to take electives
from a range of course groupings. These group-
ings vary but include biology; building con-
struction; chemistry; earth science; environmen-
tal science; hydrology; mathematics; physics;
policy; production systems; programming; and
statistics.


It is not intended that the areas of emphasis
in the soil and water science curriculum be
restricted to the four examples given above;
other areas of emphasis may be developed.


Statistics
A major in statistics is offered through the
College of Agriculture. Students should consult
the undergraduate coordinator for curriculum.
(Refer to the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences for program requirements.)









College of Architecture
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 col-
lege 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 architecture, build-
ing construction, interior design, landscape
architecture, and urban and regional planning.
Graduate programs are available through the
Department of Urban and Regional Planning,
the M.E. Rinker, Sr. School of Building
Construction, the Department of Architecture,
and the Department of Landscape Architecture.
The college also offers a Ph.D. program.
The college's teaching, research and commu-
nity service philosophy emphasizes the interde-
pendence of these professional disciplines. A
number of required and elective courses are
open, on a space-available basis, to all majors
(e.g., ARC 1211, 1701; BCN 1210, 4012, 4237,
4464, 4471; IND 2100, 2130; LAA 1920, 2710,
4935; URP 3000, 4000). In addition, the first one
and one-half years of design course work are
common 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 grad-
uate studies. The AFA Library also maintains its
own Rare Book Collection for scholarly research.
Services include a professional reference service
ready to assist in guidance and searches for
information. Students may use additional
resources in the university libraries system.
Students considering application to the
College of Architecture should anticipate, as
part of their budget planning, expenditures for
travel, equipment and tools essential to their
education as design, planning or construction
professionals. For further information in this
regard, students should contact the appropriate
department/school.
The Departments of Architecture and
Landscape Architecture and the M.E. Rinker, Sr.
School of Building Construction each have 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
directed by the Florida Architecture and
Building Research Council (FABRIC); the
Research and Education Center for Architec-
tural Presevation (RECAP); the Center for
Tropical and Subtropical Architecture, Planning
and Construction (TROPARC); the Geofacilities
Planning and Information Center (GEOPLAN);
the Center 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 Shimberg
Center for Affordable Housing. The college has
established research and training programs of
national and international prominence such as
the Preservation Institute: Nantucket, the
Vicenza Institute of Architecture in Italy and the
Preservation Institute: Caribbean. The latter pro-
gram is part of the college's mission to develop
teaching, research and service programs with
institutions in the Caribbean Basin and Latin
America. The college's newest education and
research center is in Miami Beach, adjacent to
the Art Deco Historic District.

Student Organizations
Student Government and student organiza-
tions take an active part in the educational
program of the college. Membership in the
professional organizations of each discipline is
available to students. Student chapters of the
American Institute of Architecture Students, the
American Society of Interior Designers, Institute
of Business Designers, the UF chapter of the
American Society of Landscape Architects, the
Student Planning Association, the UF Student
Chapters of the American Association of Cost
Engineers, the American Institute of
Constructors, the Construction Management
Association of America, 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 also are repre-
sented in addition to the National Organization
of Minority Architects and the National
Association of Minority Contractors. The college
recognizes the importance of student involve-
ment and encourages and assists participation
with professional groups and societies.

Requirements For Admission
Listed herein are the specific requirements
for admission to this college. It should be under-
stood that admission to the college is a selective
process. Because it cannot guarantee admission


automatically to all applicants who satisfy mini-
mum requirements, the college has established a
selective process for the admission of students.
Priority in admission shall be given to those
applicants who, in the judgment of the appro-
priate departmen-tal/school's admissions com-
mittee, have the greatest apparent potential for
successful completion of the program.
To be eligible for consideration for admis-
sion to the college, the student must have
reached junior status and taken the College
Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST; see the
Index). Additionally, all students must have
completed two sequential courses of foreign
language in secondary school or 8-10 semester
hours at the postsecondary level, or document
an equivalent level of proficiency. Students
admitted to the university at less than junior
status are assigned to the College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences, lower division, not the College of
Architecture; such students cannot be guaran-
teed space in the preprofessional architecture
courses nor eventual admission to the college.
Students admitted as juniors to colleges other
than the College of Architecture have no prior-
ity for preprofessional or professional courses
and may be considered for enrollment on a
space-available basis, after priority College of
Architecture students have been served.
Admission of students having junior status
falls into two categories: 1) those having com-
pleted all lower division requirements and pre-
pared to study at the third-year professional
course work level and 2) those needing to com-
plete freshman/sophomore preprofessional
courses. Generally, transfer students from uni-
versities or community colleges which do not
offer approved preprofessional programs find
themselves in the latter category. These students
may require up-to-four semesters at the
University of Florida to complete this work due
to the sequential nature of the courses.
An admissions review process is employed
for all applicants who have completed the pre-
professional requirements. Criteria used in
review by each of the departments/school may
include any or all of the following:
Quality of work completed, overall GPA.
Achievements in preprofessional courses or
courses related to the student's chosen plan
of study.
Pattern of courses completed.
Portfolio review or pin-up.
Benchmark standards for the admission into
the upper division of each department/school
within the college have been established. The
standards relate to progress made at the end of
30, 45 and 60 credit hours. These standards not
only include GPA requirements, but achieve-
ment attained in specific course work as related
to the students chosen path of study. These
advisement standards for the college are listed
in each department's/school's curriculum sec-
tion.






ARCHITECTURE


Curriculum in Architecture: Through an admis-
sions committee, the Department of
Architecture annually selects students to
enter third-year professional studies. All
students who satisfactorily complete the
two-year preprofessional programs at
University of Florida, Miami-Dade,
Broward, St. Petersburg (Clearwater), and
Hillsborough community colleges are eligi-
ble for consideration for third-year admis-
sion. Applications 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 cal-
endar (see Table of Contents). Transfer stu-
dents with provisional admission status
(3AR, 4AR, 5AR, or 6AR) must notify the
department office of their wish to be con-
sidered for third-year admission by the
same date.
Curriculum in Interior Design: Transfer students
must consult the program adviser. Students
needing to complete lower division prepro-
fessional 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 students and their records shall be
reviewed for approval to enter the profes-
sional courses in the junior year during the
spring of the next year. Students are admit-
ted selectively to the upper division pro-
gram on the basis of portfolio review, over-
all grade point average, interview and letter
of application. Notification of the decision
of the admissions committee shall be made
prior to the close of the spring semester for
the junior class which begins the following
fall. Contact the department for current
information.
Curriculum in Landscape Architecture: Transfer
and postbaccalaureate students contemplat-
ing the professional degree program must
contact the department to determine admis-
sion timing and eligibility. Students in the
predesign programs at Miami-Dade,
Broward, St. Petersburg and Hillsborough
community colleges must contact the
department regarding preprofessional
courses not available at those colleges. All
students must complete all required general
education and preprofessional course work
prior to admission to professional studies.
Selective admission is based on review of
design performance, transcript, letter and
interview.

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


Application Deadlines
The programs in architecture, interior
design, and landscape architecture will 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
Registrar (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 univer-
sity 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
Construction will admit students for third-year
professional 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 department 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 chair.

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 school
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 LIST
Undergraduate students who demonstrate
excellence in their academic work by complet-
ing a minimum of 12 credits 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 N* 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 those offices.
Students planning to enter the Graduate
School must maintain a 3.0 (B) average in upper
division work.

GRADUATION WITH 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
average established by the department or
school. The average will be calculated on all
work attempted while the student is classified
in third-year professional studies. Transfer cred-
its 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 also is required. Students
should consult their academic unit for mini-
mum average required.
Eligibility for graduation with honors:
Students 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.






COLLEGES


STUDENT WORK
The college reserves the right to retain stu-
dent work for the purpose of record, exhibition
or instruction. Work produced while the stu-
dent is enrolled in the College of Architecture is
the property of the college. Adequate documen-
tation 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
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.
Students frequently combine such studies with
attendance at state and national meetings of the
professional organizations in their respective
fields. Students should consult their depart-
ments for field trip requirements. Students
considering application to the College of
Architecture should anticipate, as part of their
budget planning, expenditures for equipment
and tools essential to their education as design,
planning or construction professionals. For fur-
ther information, students should contact the
appropriate department/school.


Curriculum in Architecture
R.S. McCarter, Chairman
The professional program in architecture
leads to the Master of Architecture and, for stu-
dents without a baccalaureate degree in another
discipline, requires both undergraduate and
graduate study. Successful completion of the
undergraduate curriculum results in the grant-
ing of the Bachelor of Design (Architecture), a
non-professional degree. Admission into the
graduate program is selective and information
regarding the criteria for admission is contained
in the Graduate 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.
Supplemental fees are required for participation
in this program. Summer institutes are con-


ducted 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 exhibit
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 com-
pleted all lower division requirements success-
fully 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 complete successfully the
undergraduate program. Registration for lower
division courses also may be limited by avail-
able space and faculty resources; 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 this
catalog for precise information on offerings.

Curriculum in Interior Design
Leading to the degree of Bachelor of Design
J. L. Nielson, 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 inte-
rior design.
The design process is studied and applied to
resolve problems of interior environments cre-
atively. The interior design faculty seek to equip
the student with a knowledge of design tech-
niques, materials, resources and an awareness
of the interrelated professional responsibility 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 government
agencies. Graduates of this program usually
assume positions in interior design offices and
architectural firms, or their own practices.

LIMITED ACCESS PROGRAM
All entering students must consult the
department adviser. This program has addi-
tional admission requirements as follows:
All students (postbaccalaureate, 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.

Curriculum in Landscape
Architecture
H. H. Smith, Chairman.
This curriculum leads to the first profes-
sional undergraduate degree, the Bachelor of
Landscape Architecture. The program is accred-
ited by the Landscape Architectural Accredi-
tation Board and is an essential first step toward
licensing in Florida and other states which regu-
late the practice of landscape architects.
Students become familiar with the art of design,
planning or management, and the arrangement
of natural and man-made elements on the land
through application of cultural and scientific
knowledge. Both resource conservation and the
requirements of the built environment are stud-
ied. Graduates are employed by professional
offices, municipal, state or federal recreation,
landscape architectural or planning agencies,
and the construction, development or horticul-
tural industries. Graduates also may continue in
graduate programs at institutions throughout
the country and at the University of Florida.
A field trip is required for upper division
students; domestic or foreign study opportuni-
ties are available. Students should plan to have
adequate funds for trips and studio materials.
An internship is required.

students. The chapter takes monthly trips to the
Orlando and Tampa chapter meetings to partici-
pate as a full member in the chapter programs
and meetings.

Program of Study
This four-year program for the Bachelor of
Science'in Building Construction is designed for
students interested in professional careers in
construction management, techniques, opera-
tions and related areas in the construction
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 commu-
nity college transfer students should consult
their advisers or write to the School of Building
Construction for a pre-building construction
program of local study.
Opportunities for advancement and increas-
ing responsibility exist in all areas of the con-
struction industry, a few of which includes 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.

Application Deadlines
The school will admit students for third-year
professional course work only in the fall and
spring semesters. All application procedures,

College of Business
Administration

The business world is changing and the
College of Business Administration is changing
with it to prepare students to face the demands
and challenges of the 21st century. Programs are
evaluated continually for their relevance to
changing conditions in the state, the nation and
the world. There is new emphasis on "people
skills"- the ability to communicate and work
well with others and on globalization, busi-
ness ethics and cultural diversity.
Since the College of Business Administration
was founded in 1926-27, more than 26,000 stu-
dents have earned business or accounting
degrees a national and international network
providing information, advice and encourage-
ment to today's students. There are now three
undergraduate degree programs offered by the
college: (1) students may obtain a Bachelor of
Science in Accounting (B.S.Ac.) degree from the
Fisher School of Accounting; (2) they may obtain
a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration
(B.S.B.A.) degree with a traditional major in
computer and information sciences, economics,
finance, insurance, management (decision and
information sciences or general management),
marketing, or real estate; or (3) they may obtain
a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration
(B.A.B.A.) degree with an outside area of special-
ization in any one of over 80 different fields.
The college's educational objectives are to
provide a broad formal instructional foundation
for responsible participation in business, the
professions and government; to stimulate inter-
est in social, economic and civic responsibilities;
to develop competence in making business deci-
sions and in evaluating policy; to offer areas of
specialization for students wishing to pursue
the more traditional majors within business; and
especially, to encourage intellectual inquiry of
all students.
To meet these objectives, the college's under-
graduate degree programs are based on a broad
foundation of study outside of the college that
includes the university's general education,
communications, and computation require-
ments. This educational foundation helps to
prepare students for the college's preprofes-
sional and business core requirements, which
cover the main functional areas of business.
Finally, students must then select an area of fur-
ther specialization, either through a traditional
major within the college (B.S.Ac. and B.S.B.A.
degrees), or an approved area of specialized
study outside of the college (B.A.B.A. degree).


The Faculty
The distinguished credentials of the faculty of
the College of Business Administration and the
Fisher School of Accounting are recognized both
within and outside the university, the state and
the nation.


When the state instituted its Eminent Scholar
program for academic chairs, the College of
Business Administation was the first unit in the
State University System to acquire such a chair.
Now, 13 of the 28 endowed Eminent Scholar
Chairs at the university are in business or
accounting.
The faculty also includes six university-
appointed graduate research professors, four dis-
tinguished service professors, and 16 named pro-
fessorships endowed by business. The college
and the Fisher School faculties include past pres-
idents of the national American Accounting
Association and the Econometrics Society and
two past presidents of the national Association
for Consumer Research.
College faculty have served as editors of
major national scholarly journals in marketing,
accounting, finance, business law and manage-
ment, and in many associate editor or editorial
board positions. National award winners
among the faculty include those honored for
research or teaching in real estate, marketing,
management, economics, accounting and insur-
ance. The Fisher School and every department
of the college ranks fifteenth or higher nation-
ally for their published research. In addition,
faculty from every department within the col-
lege and the Fisher School have been recognized
by the undergraduate students, their depart-
ments and the college, for their excellence in
teaching, and many have even been selected for
university-wide teaching awards.
Faculty also head the college's fourteen
research centers, including the Bureau of
Economic and Business Research that provides
official population estimates and projections
used by the state for revenue sharing, planning
and other purposes.


Facilities
The College of Business Administration and
the Fisher School of Accounting are housed in
three buildings informally known as the
"Business Triangle" the New Business
Building, historic Bryan Hall, and Matherly
Hall.
The college's media center is located in
Bryan Hall. The studio facilities (130 BRY) allow
for the advanced taping and broadcasting of
those selected preprofessional and core courses
which are taught live and then subsequently
reshown by televised replay in the classroom. It
is this advanced technology that allows the col-
lege to serve such a large number of students,
yet to maintain adequate resources to keep
upper division and major courses at a reason-
able size for a greater degree of student/faculty
interaction. The media center also is responsible
for operating a modern video-replay facility,
where students are free to view tapes of the
prior week's classes at their leisure.
Students can access the university's main-
frame computer at the Northeast Regional Data
Center (NERDC) through the college's com-


puter lab which is run by the university's Center
for Instructional and Research Computing
Activities (CIRCA). The college also maintains a
separate graduate computer center for instruc-
tional and research purposes.


Financial Aid
Information about grants, scholarships,
loans, work-study programs and other forms of
financial aid for undergraduate students in the
college may be obtained from the Director of
Student Financial Affairs, 103 Criser Hall, PO
Box 114000, University of Florida, Gainesville,
Florida 32611-4000.


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.


Beta Gamma Sigma
Election to this national honorary society is
based on scholarship and character. It is the
business equivalent to Phi Beta Kappa in the
field of classical education. For further informa-
tion, contact the Undergraduate Programs
Office located in 100 New Business Building.


Organizations and Activities
The college encourages students to partici-
pate in extracurricular activities to enhance their
educational experience, to foster professional
networks, and to develop communication and
social skills. Committee service within the orga-
nizations also develops leadership skills.
Students may join chapters of the American
Marketing Association, the Association for
Computing Machines, the Undergraduate
Economics Society, the Financial Management
SAssociation, the DIS (Decision and Information
Sciences) Society, the Society for Human
Resource Management, and AIESEC (Inter-
national Association of Students in Economics
and Business Management).
The business fraternities Alpha Kappa Psi
and Delta Sigma Pi offer opportunities for
business and accounting students to participate
in community service and social interaction.
Election to Beta Gamma Sigma, the business
equivalent of Phi Beta Kappa in the liberal arts
and sciences, is based on scholarship and char-
acter.






BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION


In addition, students may join the Minority
Business Society, the Hispanic Student Business
Association, or the Business Administration
College Council (BACC), the college's student
government organization.
The Fisher School of Accounting has three
student organizations Beta Alpha Psi, the
national accounting honorary; the Fisher School
of Accounting Council, a student government
organization; and the Florida Accounting
Association, a social organization. Many
accounting students also are members of the
business fraternities and the business honorary,
Beta Gamma Sigma.
Many business and accounting groups invite
guest speakers to discuss careers, interviewing,
resume writing and other relevant topics. The
organizations also offer students opportunities
not always available in the classroom for closer
interaction with faculty, business executives and
their peers.


Career Planning
Special days and events for business and
accounting students are designated at the uni-
versity's annual Career Expo, which attracts sev-
eral hundred corporations, government agencies
and public accounting firms to campus to meet
and recruit potential employees. There is also an
Internship Expo for students interested in partic-
ipating in internship opportunities.
The college and its faculty maintain perma-
nent ties with companies through their execu-
tives who serve on advisory councils to the
college, the Fisher School of Accounting and
various research centers. These executives visit
classrooms as guest speakers and their compa-
nies often provide financial support.


International Programs
The College of Business Administration
believes that knowledge of the global market-
place is vital for managers who will lead
American 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 agree-
ments with numerous foreign universities
which allow UF students to count the credits
earned abroad as part of their UF degree.
Programs include the Helsinki School of
Economics and Business Administration in
Mikkeli, Finland; the Norwegian School of
Management in Oslo; the Harlem Business
School in Haarlem, the Netherlands; Nijenrode
University in Breukelen, the Netherlands;
Denmark's International Study Program in
Copenhagen; and Luigi Bocconni University in
Milan, Italy. In addition, students fluent in
German may study at Leopold Franzens
University in Innsbruck, Austria, and students
may learn commercial French at ESP Lyon in
Lyon, France.


Summer programs also are available at the
Finnish and Danish schools; there is a summer
study tour including London, Paris, Brussels,
Berlin, Warsaw, and Prague; and internships in
England are available through Richmond
College in London. Finally, the college is a
member of several international consortia that
expand even more the range of opportunities
for foreign study, and the possibilities for infor-
mal arrangements for transferable overseas
study virtually are unlimited.
Participants in 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 program, and with careful planning and
prior approval, can count course work taken
abroad as part of their major or business core
requirements.
Further information about international
opportunities is available from the Director of
International Programs and Exchanges, 108
Bryan Hall, PO Box 117150, College of Business
Administration, University of Florida, Gaines-
ville, Florida, 32611-7150.

Dean's List
For the fall and spring terms only, students
who have earned a 3.5 or better grade point
average (GPA), based on a minimum of 14
semester hours taken for letter grades, are eligi-
ble 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.

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.
Academic counseling is available in the
Undergraduate Programs Office located in 100
New Business Building. Students are encour-
aged to meet with an academic adviser during
their first term in the college so they may estab-
lish 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 also are encour-
aged not to take more than 18 credit hours with-
out first consulting an academic adviser.
NORMAL PROGRESS
A student who falls below a 2.0 UF GPA, a
2.0 GPA in the business core, or either a 2.0 in
the major field course work (B.S.B.A. degree) or
a 2.0 in the outside area of specialization course
work (B.A.B.A. degree), will be placed on col-
lege probation.


Students who do not make satisfactory acad-
emic progress may be excluded from further
registration in the College of Business Adminis-
tration. A student may be deemed as not mak-
ing satisfactory progress under the following
conditions:
1. If a student fails to complete satisfactorily
the terms of his/her college probation;
2. If a student fails to take course work that is
appropriate for progress toward the degree;
3. 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.

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 correspondence
among the 60 semester hours of upper division
work required for the baccalaureate degree;
such work must haveprior approval for each
individual student by the undergraduate com-
mittee of the college. Students must earn a C or
better in all out-of-residency course work.
Business core courses and courses in a student's
major field may not be taken by correspondence
or at another university for transfer. Students
who are on college probation may not take
courses by extension or correspondence.

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
University 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 aver-
age 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
option is in addition to courses which are taught
only on a S-U basis. Courses taken to fulfill com-
munication or computation requirements
(Gordon 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 to a letter grade.






COLLEGES


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 100 New Business
Building. The deadline for submitting prerequi-
site waivers is the last day of preregistration for
the upcoming semester.
Students are encouraged not to put off the
more quantitative business core courses until
the next-to-last semester; students who will
have difficulty meeting the business core GPA
requirements should learn this sooner rather
than later. Students also are warned that they
must complete all other core courses and have
senior standing (4BA) before they will be
allowed to take MAN 4720 (Business Policies).
Students who will have difficulty following this
policy or deciding how to schedule their courses
correctly should contact an academic adviser in
100 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 submitted 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 internship programs is
offered only under the S-U Option and no acad-
emic credit will be awarded for an internship
taken in a student's final semester prior to grad-
uation. Internships also are available through
the college's Center for Retail Education and
Research.
FREE ELECTIVES
Elective courses may be taken within or out-
side of the College of Business Administration.
Students in the B.S.B.A. program must take these
electives outside of their major field. Students in
the B.A.B.A. program are limited to taking no
more than one elective course (does not include
the business core) from each given department
within the college. No credit will be awarded by
the college for cooperative education courses.

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.


MINORS IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION
The College of Business Administration
began awarding minors in business administra-
tion starting with the 1988 Fall term. The objec-
tive of the minor in business administration is to
provide a service for students in majors outside
of business by providing a general overview of
the business environment. The minor in business
administration requires exposure to the major
functional areas in business. The following
course work is required:
ACG 2021 Introduction to Financial
Accounting
ACG 2071 Introduction to Managerial
Accounting
ECO 2013 Principles of Macroeconomics
FIN 3408 Business Finance
MAN 3021 Principles of Management
MAR 3023 Principles of Marketing
Transfer work will be accepted for ACG
2021, ACG 2071 and ECO 2013 only. A mini-
mum of three (3) upper division courses must
be taken at the University of Florida. If students
already have completed FIN 3408, MAN 3021
and MAR 3023, or their equivalents at another
institution, they will be required to take another
higher-level course in that area to satisfy the
upper division requirement. All courses must be
taken for a grade, not S-U.
Students must be in an upper division col-
lege before they can apply for the minor in busi-
ness administration the minor program is not
available to students in the Fisher School of
Accounting. Students may obtain an application
for admission from 222 Criser Hall. Students
first must obtain the signature of the dean or
authorized representative of their current col-
lege before submitting the completed form to
100 BUS for processing. Application for the
minor should be made as early as possible after
admission to an upper division college, but no
later than one semester prior to graduation.
Admission to the minor is on a selective
basis with limited enrollment. To be considered
for admission, students must have a minimum
2.0 overall grade point average on all University
of Florida course work attempted.
Regardless of other graduation requirements
specified by the student's current college, a 2.0
grade point average on all attempts of the minor
courses is required in order for the College of
Business Administration to certify award of the
minor. For all graduating students who meet
this requirement, the minor will be listed on
their transcripts.
MINOR IN ACTUARIAL SCIENCE
This interdisciplinary minor is sponsored
jointly by the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences and by the College of Business
Administration at the university. The program
is designed for students interested in quantita-
tive 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 noted officially on their transcripts.


Students may complete the program while
earning a Bachelor of Science in Business
Administration, a Bachelor of Arts in Business
Administration or a Liberal Arts and Sciences
degree. The requirements for the particular
major must be met and, in addition, a number
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 toward the departmen-
tal 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 addi-
tional courses.
Students seeking further information about
the minor should contact Dr. Bruce Edwards
(mathematics), Dr. David Nye (finance and
insurance), or the statistics department.


Admission Requirements

APPLICATION FOR ADMISSION
Lower division students (freshman and
sophomores) at the University of Florida will be
admitted tentatively to the College of Business
Administration whenever they declare a major
within either the B.S.B.A. or the B.A.B.A. degree
programs; their college classification will
change from LS (Liberal Arts and Sciences) to
BA (Business Administration). These students
will be allowed to maintain their BA classifica-
tion as long as they continue to meet or exceed
the admission protocols specified for their par-
ticular degree program. Students who fall below
the minimum admission protocols for their
degree program will become a Change Major
and will revert to an LS classificaiton within the
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
After reaching 60 hours, lower division stu-
dents who were admitted tentatively to the col-
lege, and who now meet or exceed the 60-hour
admission protocols specified for their particu-
lar degree program, automatically will receive
formal admission and officially will be classified
as upper division students within the College of
Business Administration. Students who are clas-
sified as "undecided", who have declared a
nonbusiness major previously, or have been
admitted or rejected by another upper division
college, will be required to make a formal appli-
cation for admission.
Transfer students will be admitted formally
to the college only for the fall, spring, and
Summer A/C terms, provided they have an
Associate of Arts degree from a Florida public
institution and meet or exceed the 60-hour
admission protocols for their declared degree
program. Application deadlines are enforced
strictly (see the university calendar in this cata-
log). Transfer students who do not have a com-
pleted application on file, including all required
documentation, transcripts, etc., will not be con-
sidered for admission and will be required to
make formal application for a subsequent term.






BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

average as reported by the institution
awarding their degree.
Students who have attended the University
of Florida must have at least a 2.0 UF grade
point average and, where applicable, a 2.0 busi-
ness core and a 2.0 major field grade point aver-

7. Earned a 2.0 preprofessional GPA on all
attempts of the preprofessional courses
(defined above) as calculated by the college.
8. Earned a 2.0 overall GPA. For University of
Florida students this GPA will be their UF

their Associate of Arts degree, this will be
the Associate of Arts GPA as reported by the
institution awarding the degree.
ADMISSION PROTOCOLS
Freshmen at the University of Florida are
admitted initially to the College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences as lower division students, with an
LS (Liberal Arts and Sciences) classification, and
are under the control of that college. However,
students who have declared a major within
either the B.S.B.A. or B.A.B.A. degree programs
will be admitted tentatively to the College of
Business Administration and their classification
will be changed to BA (Business Administra-
tion).
Each semester the College of Business
Administration will send a Monitoring
Academic Performance Policy (MAPP) audit to
every lower division student who has declared
a business major and has been admitted tenta-
tively to the college. The intent of the audit is to
ensure that all potential B.S.B.A. and B.A.B.A.
students are aware of their current academic
status and their progress toward formal admis-
sion into the college as upper division students.
The College of Business Administration also
has specified a series of admission protocols
that students seeking formal admission to the
college are expected to follow. By agreement,


both the College of Business Administration
and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences will
monitor the progress of such students. Students
who fall below the minimum admission proto-
cols for their degree program will become a
Change Major, will revert to an LS classification
within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences,
and will be required by the College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences to seek admission to another
upper division college or to make alternative
academic plans.
Transfer students who will receive their
Associate of Arts degree from a Florida public
institution must meet or exceed the 60-hour
admission protocols if they wish to receive for-
mal admission to the college. The admission
protocols for the B.S.B.A. and B.A.B.A. degree
program are as follows:

Postbaccalaureate Student (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
B.S.B.A. or B.S.Ac. degree may be admitted
only if they wish to receive a B.S.B.A.
degree.
2. Students who have received their B.S.B.A.,
B.A.B.A., or B.S.Ac. degree from the Univer-
sity 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 information pur-
poses.


3. Any student applying for a graduate pro-
gram within the college may, at the discre-
tion 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
highly selective and is subject to the college's
resource and enrollment constraints. Meeting
the minimum requirements for undergraduate
admission does not ensure admission as a post-
baccalaureate 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
attended the University of Florida previ-
ously as degree-seeking students, or
2. Have never applied to the University of
Florida as degree-seeking students, and
3. Are enrolled currently in a B.S.B.A. program
at another State University System institu-
tion, and
4. Intend to transfer course work back to their
home institution and 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 alterna-
tives.

Graduate Students
The college participates in graduate pro-
grams and programs of adult and executive
development education. Graduate programs in
accounting, business administration and eco-
nomics are provided under the Graduate School
of Business Administration for advanced stu-
dents with career interests in teaching, research
or business. Courses are offered leading to the
Master of Accounting (see Fisher School of
Accounting), Master of Business Administra-
tion, Master of Arts, Master of Science, and
Doctor of Philosophy. For requirements for
these degrees and for admission to the Graduate
School, consult the Graduate Catalog.

Curriculum Leading to the
Bachelor of Science in Business
Administration (B.S.B.A.) and
Bachelor of Arts in Business
Administration (B.A.B.A.) Degrees
The College of Business Administration
awards the B.S.B.A. in eight major fields and
awards the B.A.B.A. degree in over 80 areas of
specialization. Students attempting either a
B.S.B.A. or B.A.B.A. degree in the college must









complete: (1) the university's General Education
requirements; (2) the college's distribution
requirements; (3) the college's preprofessional
requirements; (4) the college's business core
requirements; (5) either the major field or out-
side specialization requirements specified for
the particular program; and (6) sufficient free-
elective courses to give each student a total of
124 semester hours, as calculated by the college.

Graduation Requirements
Seniors must file a formal application for a
degree in the Office of the University Registrar
by the published deadline for the semester in
which they expect to receive a degree. In addi-
tion, students must complete successfully all
course work requirements, credit hour require-
ments, and GPA requirements as specified by
the College of Business Administration.

Course Work Requirements
Students must complete the university's
General Education requirements, the college's
distribution requirements and the college's pre-
professional requirements. They also must com-
plete satisfactorily all business core courses and
a college-approved program of study, either in a
traditional major within the college (B.S.B.A.
degree) or an area of specialization outside the
college (B.A.B.A. degree). Depending on their
program, students may be required to complete
specified electives outside the major.

Credit Hour Requirements
A minimum of 124 credit hours, as calculated
by the college, is required for graduation. The
waiving of any required course does not reduce
the total credit hours required for graduation.
Unless otherwise specified in this catalog, stu-
dents will receive no credit when repeating
equivalent courses. The State Common Course
Numbering System defines courses as equiva-
lent whenever the prefix and the last three digits
of the four-digit course number are the same; as
an example, STA 2023 is defined by the
Common Course Numbering System as equiva-
lent to STA 3023. Finally, the college also has
specified some non-common course numbering
courses as equivalent and not repeatable for
credit. Examples include MAC 3233 and MAC
3311; MAC 3234 and MAC 3312; ECO 3100 and
ECO 3101; ECO 3202 and ECO 3203; and ECO
3700 and either ECO 3703 or ECO 3704. If in
doubt, contact the Undergraduate Programs
Office in 100 New Business Building.


Grade Point Requirements
Students in the B.S.B.A. program must earn
a 2.0 GPA on all course work attempted at the
University of Florida; a 2.0 GPA on all business
core courses attempted at the university; and a
2.0 GPA on all major field courses attempted at
the university. Students in the B.A.B.A. program
must earn a 2.0 GPA on all course work
attempted at the University of Florida; either a


2.0 GPA on all core courses attempted at the
university, or pass all core courses with a grade
of C or better; and a 2.0 GPA on all courses
attempted at the university in the outside area
of specialization.

GRADUATION WITH HONORS
To qualify, students must earn a 3.2 GPA
(honors), a 3.6 GPA (high honors), or a 3.8 GPA
(highest honors) on all course work taken at the
University of Florida, all business core course
work taken at the university and all major field
course work (B.S.B.A. degree) or outside area of
specialization course work (B.A.B.A. degree)
taken at the university. Students are required to
take all core and major or specialty course work
in residence.
A thesis will be required for high or highest
honors. Students doing thesis work must enroll
in the appropriate honors thesis course for their
program and have their thesis reviewed by at
least one faculty member chosen by their hon-
ors program coordinator.
To qualify for the thesis option, a student
normally will have completed 100 semester
hours of course work (exceptions may be made
by the honors coordinator) and must be able to
attain the 3.6 GPA required for high honors at
the time they enroll in the thesis option.

Lower Division Requirements
Lower division requirements total 64 semes-
ter hours. They include general education, col-
lege distribution, preprofessional, computer lit-
eracy, and free-elective requirements. Require-
ments are the same for both the B.S.B.A. and
B.A.B.A. degree programs.

COLLEGES


Preprofessional courses may not be taken by
correspondence or under an S/U Option.
Students who wish to use a course from another
institution should first consult the Undergrad-
uate Programs Office to determine whether the
course has been approved for equivalency.
The Department of Mathematics requires all
students to take a placement test before they
will be allowed to enroll in any beginning calcu-
lus course offered by the department. Computer
and information sciences students are encour-
aged to take MAC 3311 and MAC 3312. The col-
lege does not allow students to receive credit for
both MAC 3233 and MAC 3311 or for both
MAC 3234 and MAC 3312.
All students admitted to the college are
required to have a basic knowledge of micro-
computers and familiarity with DOS, spread-
sheets, and word processing. Instructors in busi-
ness courses will expect students to be com-
puter literate and will structure their course
materials and teaching methods accordingly.
The preprofessional computer literacy require-
ment can be met by taking CAP 3802 (or its
approved equivalent), by taking a mini-course
offered by the Center for Instructional and
Research Computing Activities (CIRCA), or by
passing a placement test offered by CIRCA.

ELECTIVE REQUIREMENTS
Students should choose sufficient elective
course hours to complete the 64 semester hours
required in lower division. These electives may
be taken in such areas as mathematics, social
sciences, foreign languages, humanities, etc.
Students should choose their electives with care:
(1) students in the B.S.B.A. program will receive
no credit for taking additional courses, beyond
those required or allowed, in their major field;
(2) students in the B.A.B.A. program may take
additional courses in their outside area of spe-
cialization, but all courses allowed for that area
will count toward the GPA calculated for that
specialization, and (3) students in the B.A.B.A.
program may take no more than one elective
course (in addition to business core courses)
from each given area within the college.

LOWER DIVISION COURSE SEQUENCE
This sequence is designed to provide guid-
ance for students seeking admission to the
College of Business Administration. Although
this sequence will satisfy the admission proto-
cols previously defined, students are encour-
aged to make adjustments to this sequence of
courses in light of their personal strengths,
weaknesses, and outside constraints. For exam-
ple, General Education courses between the first
and second semester and between the third and
fourth semester may be exchanged, and stu-
dents may wish to take a four-hour General
Education course in place of a one-hour free-
elective. Students who need further clarification
should contact an adviser in the college's
Undergraduate Programs Office.

BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION


Computer and Information
Sciences
The curriculum for computer and informa-
tion sciences (C.I.S.) majors is designed to pre-
pare students for technical and managerial posi-
tions in computer science in public and private
organizations. The curriculum emphasizes three
aspects pertinent to the student's professional
career: the functions to which computers are
applied in organizations; the professional skills
for the design of computing applications; and
the decision-making techniques for the efficient
and effective utilization of computing resources.

30-31


Computer and information sciences majors
are advised that additional courses offered by
the CIS department, as well as ISM 3011 offered
by the DIS department, may not be used to ful-
fill free-elective requirements.

Decision and Information Sciences
The major in decision and information sci-
ences (D.I.S.) is under consideration. Until
approved, it will remain a track within the man-
agement major. This track will be noted offi-
cially on the student's transcript.
The decision and information sciences
requirements give majors problem-solving skills
in mathematical and statistical methods; the use
of computers; and application processes. The
DIS requirements span traditional academic dis-
ciplines to produce a multi-discipline'major.
Many majors will desire to become a staff assis-
tant to a line manager or a decision support spe-
cialist in a traditional planning or MS/OR
department. The basic curriculum focuses on
the development of computing, quantitative,
and application skills, but also allows the stu-
dent to gain further specialization in one of


three tracks: Management Science; Operations
Management; or Decision Support Systems.

tional courses offered by the economics depart-
ment may not be used to fulfill free-elective
requirements. That is, economics majors are lim-
ited to a maximum of 18 semester hours of
major course work, and any additional free-elec-
tives must be taken outside of the student's
major.

Insurance
The primary objective of the curriculum in
risk and insurance is an understanding of risk -
its varied forms, sources and methods of treat-
ment. The curriculum stresses decision-making
necessary in the management of personal and
corporate risks. The curriculum is integrated
closely with finance.
The courses provide a useful background for
business and non-business majors with interests
in the nature of risk. Students majoring in this
field are prepared for management positions in
risk management in business, government and
the insurance industry. Students desiring to
major in insurance must achieve a grade of C or

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 management
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 noted offi-
cially on the student's transcript.

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 joint projects among the college
and other units of the Health Science Center and
university have been formulated and imple-
mented.
The eleven departments which make up the
College of Dentistry are community dentistry,
dental biomaterials, endodontics, operative den-
tistry, oral biology, oral diagnostic sciences, oral
and maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics, pedi-
atric dentistry, periodontology, and prostho-
dontics.
The first year of the curriculum includes
basic science, preclinical and dental science
courses. This structure allows students to
develop psychomotor skills while completing
didactic courses. The basic science courses are
completed in the second year, and all preclinical
courses are completed by the end of the summer
semester of the third year. The remaining five
semesters are devoted to clinical experiences,
rotations, electives and senior modules. The col-
lege'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: One-


year programs in advanced education in general
dentistry are offered at the college's St.
Petersburg and Jacksonville clinics. A one-year
general practice residency program is offered in
Jacksonville. 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, periodontol-
ogy, 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 mandibu-
lar dysfunction are based in Gainesville. The
college's Department of Oral Biology, in con-
junction with the College of Medicine, offers a
program leading to a Ph.D. in medical sciences
with specialization in oral biology.
In conjunction with the Department of
Materials Science and Engineering in the
College of Engineering, the Department of
Dental Biomaterials offers a program leading to
either an M.S. or Ph.D. degree in materials sci-
ence.
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 col-
lege. Applicants should initiate the application
process approximately 15 months prior to antic-
ipated enrollment by submitting an application
through the centralized American Association
of Dental Schools Application Service (AAD-
SAS), 1625 Massachusetts Ave., N.W., Suite 101,
Washington, D.C. 20036.
The application process is described in more
detail in this catalog (see Index) and fully in the
College of Dentistry bulletin. Copies may be
obtained by writing to the Office of Admissions,
College of Dentistry, University of Florida, P.O.
Box 100445, Gainesville, Florida 32610-0445.


Undergraduate Preparation for
Dentistry
Preprofessional students at the University of
Florida may major in a program offered by any
department or college of the university; how-
ever, an in-depth background in biological sci-
ences is necessary to master the dental curricu-
lum. The Office of Preprofessional Education is
described in this catalog (see Index).

College of Education
The College of Education is responsible for
teacher education at the University of Florida.
University teacher education programs are
approved by the state Department of Education
and the National Council for Accreditation of
Teacher Education.
Undergraduate programs prepare teachers
in agricultural and extension education through
the College of Agriculture; art education
through the College of Fine Arts; health science
education and exercise and sport sciences
through the College of Health and Human
Performance; music education through the
College of Fine Arts; secondary education (biol-
ogy, 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 attrib-
utes. The latest developments in instructional
approaches and new technologies are used.
PROTEACH is not built upon previous pro-
grams but upon a reconceptualization of what a
beginning teacher should know, should be able
to do, and should be as a model for youth. PRO-
TEACH 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,
including 12-24 hours of specialized study in one
or two academic disciplines. Majors in special
education are required to have 70 hours outside
the college, 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 founda-
tional studies include the social, philosophical,
and historical foundations of education; human
growth and development; ethical principles gov-
erning teachers; legal provisions affecting educa-
tion; handicapped children in regular class-
rooms; educational diagnosis and evaluation;
interpersonal relations; the cognitive process in
education; instructional design and implementa-
tion; 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 in microteaching,
simulation, and other controlled situations.
Methods of instruction and clinical experiences
are concurrent and coordinated; academic and
clinical aspects of course objectives are planned
together; and methods instructors are also clini-
cal supervisors.
PROTEACH students in elementary educa-
tion and special education receive a Bachelor of
Arts in Education upon the successful comple-
tion of the first of two phases of the approved
teacher-education program, including a pre-
scribed set of courses and experiences. An addi-
tional year is required for completion of the
approved teacher education programs in ele-
mentary education and special education.

Admission
Listed below are the specific minimum
requirements for admission to the undergradu-
ate programs in the College of Education. It
should be understood, however, that admission
to the college is selective. The college is unable
to guarantee a place to every applicant who sat-







COLLEGES


isfies the minimum requirements. Faculty and
space limitations and National Council for
Accreditation of Teachers (NCATE) program
standards necessitate limited admission.
The college establishes minimum GPA
requirements for each program which reflect the
likelihood the student will meet graduate school
admission requirements. These GPA require-
ments vary with the number of applicants,
availability of space and the number of faculty
in a given program. A student's entire record,
including educational objectives, pattern of
courses previously completed, quality of previ-
ous academic records and test data will be con-
sidered. Priority for admission will be given to
those applicants whose record indicates the
greatest likelihood of success in the program
requested.
A student who does not meet all of the
requirements for admission may petition the
College of Education for admission. A limited
number of students may be admitted through
this procedure. A petition for admission cannot
be considered unless a student submits an
American College Test score or a Scholastic
Aptitude Test score as required by state board
rule for admission to a teacher education pro-
gram. Students from community colleges must
also have completed CLAST, have an A.A.
degree, and presented acceptable test scores.
Application deadlines (see university calen-
dar) are strictly enforced. Students who do not
have a completed application on file, including
all required documentation and transcripts, will
not be considered for admission and will be
required to make application for a subsequent
term.

All Students
Students from other Florida public institu-
tions who transfer to the University of Florida
will be guaranteed admission if they have:
1. Successfully completed CLAST and the
Associate of Arts degree. UF students who
have completed 60 hours may apply without
the A.A. degree.
2. Completed two sequential courses of foreign
language in secondary school (grades 10-12)
or 8-10 semester hours at the postsecondary
level, or document an equivalent level of
proficiency.
3. Successfully completed the mathematics and
writing components of the Gordon Rule.
4. Satisfied the General Education require-
ments as defined by the university.
5. Satisfied the preprofessional course require-
ments.
6. Earned an overall 3.00 GPA.
7. Presented an SAT score of 1000, an ACT
score of 23 or an EACT score of 24.
A student who has a GPA between 2.60-3.00,
an SAT score of 900-1000, an ACT score of 20-23
or an EACT score of 21-24 may apply. Such a
student may be considered for admission on an
individual basis subject to space, resources and
enrollment constraints.


Admission Protocols
Lower division requirements total 64 semes-
ter hours. They include General Education, col-
lege distribution and preprofessional require-
ments. An eligible student is admitted to either
the PROTEACH elementary or special educa-
tion program as a junior. Admission to the ele-
mentary PROTEACH program is possible for
fall, spring and summer sessions; admission to
the special education PROTEACH program is
possible for fall and spring sessions. While a
student is a freshman and a sophomore, the
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences directs the
student's academic program. However, to assist
a student who plans to seek admission to a
PROTEACH program, a student is monitored
once they declare an intended major.
The Monitoring Academic Progress Policy
(MAPP) is the tool the university uses to advise
a student about how to stay on track toward
admission to the declared college. A letter will
be sent to the student at 30 hours, 45 hours and
60 hours to indicate progress toward admission
to the intended major. If progress is not evident,
a student will be advised to make alternative
academic plans and to seek advising in 358
Little Hall.

General Regulations Advisement
Before the end of the first term of enrollment
in the College of Education, the student will plan
a program for the remainder of work required
for the degree. All planned programs must have
the approval of the student's adviser and the
Coordinator of Undergraduate Studies.
Each student is responsible for registering
for the proper courses and fulfilling all require-
ments for the degree. Within deadlines, courses
can be dropped or changed without penalty,
only upon approval of the adviser, the College
of Education Office of Student Services, and the
Office of the University Registrar.

Course Loads
Sixteen semester hours is considered a nor-
mal load. A student may be permitted to register
for additional hours only if approved by an
adviser.


Satisfactory Progress
A student admitted to the PROTEACH ele-
mentary or special education program is
expected to maintain an upper division grade
point average of 3.0 or above. Each student's
academic progress is reviewed each semester. In
the event requirements are not being met, the
student will be advised to meet with a depart-
ment representative before a decision is made
whether or not further registration will be
allowed. A student denied further registration
may petition the decision to the college petitions
committee.

Residence Requirement
The last 30 hours to be applied toward a
