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 staff 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, other college regulations and a complete course progression for each major in the college.
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 that teach courses with this prefix. A page
index of the departments of instruction appears at the back of the catalog.

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
ten universities and is a member of the
Association of American Universities (AAU).
Its faculty and staff are dedicated to the com-
mon pursuit of the university's threefold mis-
sion: 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, which have a dif-
ferent 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-
tribute 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 the
ninth largest university in the nation.

Government of the University
Direct supervision over the University of
Florida, its policies, and affairs is vested in the
Board of Regents, a body composed of 12 citi-
zens who are appointed by the governor for six-
year terms, one student appointed for one year,
and the State Commissioner of Education.
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
more than 39,400 in Fall 1995-come from more
than 100 countries (1,771 international stu-
dents), all 50 states, and every one of the 67
counties in Florida. The ratio of men to women
is 53/47. Seventy-six percent of UF students are
undergraduates (29,859), 19% are graduate stu-
dents (7,400) and 5% (2,150) are in the profes-
sional programs of dentistry, law, medicine,
pharmacy and veterinary medicine.
Approximately 2,300 African-American stu-
dents, 3,365 Hispanic students and 2,150 Asian-
American students attend UF. Ninety percent of
entering freshmen rank above the national
mean of scores on standard entrance exams
taken by college-bound students. UF consis-
tently ranks among the top public universities
in the nation in the number of enrolled National
Merit Scholars, Achievement Scholars,
International Baccalaureate graduates and
Advance Placement score recipients.


Faculty
A distinguished faculty of more than 4,000
annually attracts approximately $200 million in
research and training grants. UF now has 54
eminent scholar chairs. More than 30 faculty
members have been selected to the National
Academies of Science and/or Engineering, the
Institute of Medicine, or a counterpart in a for-
eign nation.
A very small sampling of honored faculty
includes: a Nobel Laureate, Pulitzer Prize win-
ners in editorial writing and poetry, 20
Fulbright Scholars, inventors of Gatorade and
Bioglass, a man-made material that bonds with
human tissue, 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 88 leading research universities as
categorized in 1994 by the Carnegie Commis-
sion 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 21 colleges and
schools and over 100 interdisciplinary research
and education centers, bureaus, and institutes.
Almost 100 undergraduate degree programs
are offered. The Graduate School coordinates


200 graduate programs throughout the universi-
ty's colleges and schools. Professional postbac-
calaureate degrees are offered in dentistry, law,
medicine, pharmacy and veterinary medicine.
During the last year, more than 32,000 peo-
ple took advantage of the many university-
sponsored opportunities made available
through the Division of Continuing Education.
More than 25,000 people participated in non-
credit conferences, 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.


Facilities
On 2,000 acres, most of it within the limits of
a 90,000-population urban area, the university
operates out of more than 875 buildings, 158 of
them equipped with classrooms and laborato-
ries. Facilities are valued at more than $575 mil-
lion. Notable among these are the University Art
Gallery, a microkelvin laboratory capable of pro-
ducing some of the coldest temperatures in the
universe, a 100-kilowatt training and research
nuclear reactor, the second largest academic
computing center in the South, and a self-con-
tained 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. Ham 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,
volleyball, swimming and gymnastics teams.
More than 20,000 use the student union daily for
dining, meeting, bowling, pool and other table
games, arts and crafts, music listening and TV
viewing.







GENERAL INFORMATION


Athletics
The university has one of the top intercolle-
giate athletic programs in the country, finishing
fourth in the 1994-95 Sears Directors' Cup
National all-sports competition, conducted by
the National Association of Collegiate Directors
of Athletics. The Gators captured five SEC
championships in 1994-95 and for the seventh
time in the last eight years, UF ranked as the top
program in the SEC.
An estimated 90 percent of all students take
part in some form of organized or informal
recreation. There are 89 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.
The University Police Department has more
than 86 sworn officers, with the addition of a
dozen new officers since 1990. UF also has insti-
tuted a voluntary apartment safety program, in
cooperation with local law enforcement, to
advise students of those apartment complexes
that have been inspected by police for safety.

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 out-
moded customs and beliefs are prized and hon-
ored. However, all such expressions need to be
civil, manifesting respect 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. Faculty,
staff and administration are expected to pro-
vide encouragement and leadership as well as
example.
While the university seeks to educate and
encourage, it also must restrict behavior that
adversely affects others. The Standard of
Ethical Conduct summarizes what is expected
of the members of the university community.
Academic Honesty
The university requires all members of its
community to be honest in all endeavors. A
fundamental principle is that the whole process
of learning and pursuit of knowledge are dimin-
ished by cheating, plagiarism and other acts of
academic dishonesty. In addition, every dishon-
est act in the academic environment 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 dishonest students.
Similarly, measures will be taken against fac-
ulty, staff and administration members who
practice dishonest or demeaning behavior.
Student Responsibility. Students should
report any condition that facilitates dishon-
esty to the class instructor, the department
chair, the college dean 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 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 that are intimidating, harassing, coer-
cive or abusive, or that invade the right to pri-
vacy 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
Application for admission to any undergrad-
uate college, school or division of the university
must be made to the Office of Admissions on the
forms prescribed and by the dates indicated. It is
quite proper to correspond with deans, directors
or department chairs, but contact with univer-
sity officers does not eliminate the necessity for
filing an application by the dates specified.
How to Apply: An applicant should address
a request to Office of Admissions, Box 114000,
University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, 32611-
4000, asking for application forms for freshman,
undergraduate transfer or postbaccalaureate
admission. Requests for graduate, dental, law,
medicine and veterinary medicine applications
should be directed to the department. Forms
and directions vary with the level of entry. The
applicant should indicate on the request the
level of admission.
Important Note: An application for admis-
sion 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 approval for entrance
in any other term.

Admission Information
A summary of the general requirements for
admission or readmission to any college or divi-
sion 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 the instructions
on the application. Failure to declare atten-
dance 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.
A satisfactory conduct record.
All upper division international students
whose native language is not English must
submit TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign
Language) scores, in addition to other
required test scores.
Board of Regents regulations provide that
furnishing false or fraudulent statements on
information in connection with an application
for admission or residence affidavit may result
in disciplinary action, denial of admission and
invalidation of credits or 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) to the university
also may be found in the appropriate sections
which follow.
It should be understood, however, that mini-
mum requirements are given and that admis-
sion to the university is selective. The satisfac-
tion of minimum requirements does not auto-
matically guarantee admission. Under Board of
Regents policy, a limited number of students
may be admitted as exceptions to the minimum
requirements.
Any student who is admitted conditionally
to the university may enroll subject to verifica-
tion that the conditions of admission have been
satisfied. If the final official credentials fail to
confirm that the conditions for admission have
been met, the admission will be revoked, the stu-
dent's classification will be nondegree status and
continued enrollment will be denied.
Minimum Requirements for Admission
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 prior to high school graduation 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 sec-
tion, 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 for Tuition Purposes
In-state residency requests for tuition pur-
poses are not granted to students who appear to
have entered the state solely for educational
purposes. For more details regarding residency
classifications for tuition purposes, refer to the
residency section in this catalog.

Medical Immunizations
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 Student Health Center has
received and approved the form.

Admission as a Freshman
Refer also to Required Placement Examinations.
Composite pictures of the SAT results of
recent freshman classes at the University of
Florida indicate that the middle 50 percent of
admitted freshmen score between 1170 and 1340
on the SAT. 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 col-
lege, prospective applicants are urged to discuss
these data with their school counselors before
applying to the university.
Applicants who have never attended college -
Please note: Students who have enrolled in an
early admission program at other postsec-
ondary institutions and/or earned 30 or more
semester hours of college credit are not consid-
ered freshmen and must apply to the university
as transfer students.
When to Apply: The best time to apply is
early in the senior year of secondary school. Fall
term priority is provided to qualified applicants
whose applications and supporting records are
received in the Office of Admissions prior to
January 31. Applications for the fall class
received February 1 and after are considered on
a space-available basis only. The deadlines for
receipt of applications for other terms are listed
in the university calendar.
Admission is selective. Because of commu-
nity colleges and other state universities in
Florida, the University of Florida must limit the
number of entering freshmen. Students may
apply for admission after attending community
colleges or other universities by transferring to
the university's upper division colleges in accor-
dance with admissions standards.







ADMISSIONS


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.

Meeting this index alone does not guarantee
admission to the university.
All freshman applicants must submit SAT II
exam results in three disciplines. The writing
test and a math test are required of every-
one; the third subject area is discretionary.
Applicants who have completed a precalcu-
lus course in high school and are consider-
ing careers in dentistry, engineering, medi-
cine, veterinary medicine or any science cur-
riculum should take the mathematics level
II-C and chemistry exams. Students who
have not taken a high school precalculus
course or who are pursuing majors that do
not require calculus or chemistry courses at
the college level may opt for the mathemat-
ics level I examination.
A record of good conduct. Major or continu-
ing difficulty with school or other officials
may make an applicant ineligible regardless
of academic qualifications.


* 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: Applicants who present scores
on the G.E.D. 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. Applicants
should be aware, however, that admission is
highly competitive when the number of quali-
fied applicants exceeds thd number that the uni-
versity is permitted to enroll. An applicant's
total high school record including grades, test
scores, educational objective and pattern of
courses completed, rank in class, school recom-
mendation and personal background and
record will be considered.
Any student who does not graduate from a
regionally accredited secondary school must
provide, in addition to a transcript and SAT or
ACT results, the results of the following SAT II
examinations: writing, mathematics level II-C
preferred, foreign language, science and social
science.
The SAT II examinations will be considered
with all other information provided to assess
the applicants' overall academic background.

Admission for 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
Freshman Applicants
Refer also to Required Placement Examinations.

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.
An official transcript of the applicant's sec-
ondary school record covering grades 9, 10,
11. An overall academic average of 3.60 is
expected.
Results of either the SAT or ACT. Generally,
an SAT total score of 1350 or a composite
score of 30 on the Enhanced ACT is required.


* A letter from the student's high school prin-
.cipal or guidance counselor stating 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 Advanced Standing 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 $25 service charge, is refundable until
May 1 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, the student may receive uni-
versity credit 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 transcripts. Admission
offers are subject to cancellation if final course
work does not meet admission requirements.

Admission as a Transfer Student
Refer also to Required Placement Examinations.
Applicants who have attended any college
or university, and who have earned at least 12
semester hours of credit following graduation
from high school, earned 30 or more semester
hours while enrolled in a dual-enrollment pro-
gram or attended another postsecondary insti-
tution 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 in the univer-
sity calendar and consult the individual college
to which they intend to apply for specific pro-
gram 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 for an
admission decision for the term desired.







ADMISSIONS


This section lists the general admission
requirements for transfer students. It should be
noted, however, that admission to the university
is selective and satisfaction of these general
requirements does not guarantee acceptance.
Upper division colleges of the university have
limited enrollment quotas. Upper division trans-
fer applicants who meet the minimum admission
requirements will be referred to the appropriate
college for enrollment consideration. A transfer
applicant should refer to the appropriate college's
section of this catalog for further information.
Transfer Credit Policy
Students may transfer 60 credit hours from
community colleges as part of the hours needed
for their UF degrees, regardless of when these
hours are earned, but subject to university and
college degree requirements. How-ever, junior
and senior level course requirements for the
major must be completed at UF or, with permis-
sion of the student's college, at another baccalau-
reate degree-granting institution. At least 25% of
semester credit hours must be earned through
instruction at the University of Florida.
Accreditation by the Southern Association of
Colleges and Schools notes that "an adequate
number of hours with appropriate prerequisites
must be required in courses above the elemen-
tary level." The University of Florida interprets
this, based on commonly accepted good practice,
to mean 60 credits in upper division courses.
The courses represented by these lower divi-
sion 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 may not reduce the number of credit
hours required in the upper division at UF to
earn a degree. Failure to declare attendance at
another institution can invalidate admission to
UF 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 this
university will be accepted for transfer credit as
hours earned. It is the prerogative of the stu-
dent'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 certain courses.
University of Florida degree-seeking stu-
dents who wish to enroll in another institution
as a transient or non degree-seeking student
and who wish to transfer such credit back to UF
must first secure the approval of the dean of
their college. Transient student forms are used
for pre-approval of transfer credit within the
State University System (SUS) and are available
from the registrar's office.
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. All
other community college applicants, undergraduate
transfer applicants from four-year colleges or univer-
sities and applicants for readmission should consult
the appropriate sections which follow.


The University of Florida subscribes to the
articulation agreement between the state univer-
sities and public community colleges of Florida:
Any graduate of a state-approved Florida public
community college is eligible for admission to a
university if the student has completed a uni-
versity 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 University
of Florida, a student who has failed to main-
tain this average at another institution after
completing the A.A. degree is not eligible for
admission. Regardless of the average earned,
courses completed at other institutions must
reasonably parallel the curriculum at the
University of Florida.
All applicants seeking admission to a pro-
gram in teacher education must submit SAT
or ACT scores. These scores should be for-
warded to the Office of Admissions as soon
as possible after submitting an application
for admission. Some colleges with enroll-
ment quotas 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.
All applicants for admission to upper divi-
sion programs at UF must provide results
from SAT II exams in writing and either
math level I or math level II-C.
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 passed the College Level
Academic Skills Test (CLAST) to be admit-
ted 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.
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.

Admission to Lower Division
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.
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. (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 UF.
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.
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 SAT or the ACT. These
scores should be forwarded to the Office of
Admissions as soon as possible after submitting
an application for admission. Some colleges
with enrollment.quotas 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:







ADMISSIONS


* 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 as part of the
courses offered for advanced standing
credit. (See appropriate college section of
this catalog.) Upon recommendation by the
upper division college, an applicant lacking
some of the course requirements may be per-
mitted to enroll in that college and to com-
plete 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.
* All applicants for admission to upper divi-
sion programs at UF must provide results
from SAT II exams in writing and either
math level I or math level II-C.
* 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 with fewer than 96
semester hours who are transferring to
upper division programs from private col-
leges 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
first term in which it is available. Applicants
with 96 or more hours of transferable credit
must provide passing CLAST scores before
they can apply to UF.


* All applicants must have completed two
sequential courses of foreign language in
secondary school or 8-10 sequential semester
hours at the postsecondary level, or docu-
ment an equivalent level of proficiency.
Required Placement Examinations SAT II
Scores on the SAT II are the basic criteria for
placement in English composition, calculus,
chemistry, Spanish, French, German and Latin.
Prior to registration, all freshmen must provide
an SAT II writing test score. Acceptable scores
also must be submitted by students who plan to
enroll in chemistry, calculus or one of the for-
eign languages listed below. Students may sub-
stitute AP or IB credit earned in the junior year
for any of the SAT II exams. Consult the AP
scores and university course equivalents chart
in the Advanced Standing Opportunities section
of this catalog.
Newly admitted students must take SAT II
tests by January of the senior year in high
school.
For information on appropriate course selec-
tions based on student scores, students should
consult the charts provided, the Schedule of
Courses, the Academic Advising Center or indi-
vidual departments.
Superior results allow students to enter
advanced courses at the beginning of their col-
lege careers and to fulfill some requirements by
examination rather than by course work.
* UF freshmen who wish to enroll in any of
the following courses must provide scores
from the following SAT II subject examina-
tions:


UF Course
ANY English course
Calculus or higher
French 2 or higher
German 2 or higher
Latin 2 or higher
Spanish 2 or higher

Students who have taken foreign lan-
guage courses in high school who want to
continue study of that same language on the
university level must take the appropriate
SAT II language exam.
Additionally, freshmen heading toward a
pre-medicine, pre-dentistry, pre-veterinary
medicine, engineering or hard science col-
lege curriculum will be required to submit
chemistry and/or mathematics SAT II scores
prior to registering for UF courses.
* A note about AP or IB scores: An AP or IB
score may substitute for an SAT II score.
Locate your AP score on the chart provided
to determine the UF course to take. AP
scores of 3, 4 and 5 provide course credit;
this credit will be indicated on your tran-
script with the appropriate UF course equiv-
alent(s). Students will not receive credit for
both an AP score and its equivalent UF
course. For placement and equivalency
information for IB scores, refer to Advanced
Standing Opportunities section.
* A note about mathematics course place-
ment: You do not need a placement test
score to register for MAC 1114, 1140 or 1142
and MGF 1202. Suitable placement test
scores are required to register for MAC 3233,
3311 and 3472. A grade of C or better in
MAC 1142 also permits placement into MAC
3233 or MAC 3311.
* A note about the chemistry test: Students
wishing to enroll in CHM 2040 or 2045 must
present suitable SAT II, AP or IB scores.
* A note about the writing test: If you entered
UF before Summer B 1995, use your
SAT/ACT verbal score for placement. If
your verbal score is below 560 or 25, you
should register for ENC 1101. If above 560 or
25, consider courses listed on the SAT II
chart. (Students in prior catalog years have a
different general education composition
requirement.)

ADMISSIONS


Admission to Postbaccalaureate
Studies
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 department deadlines with the appropri-
ate department.
Postbaccalaureate students may wish to
enroll in courses for any of the following rea-
sons:
* 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, Box 114000, University of Florida,
Gainesville, FL, 32611-4000, on forms supplied
by that office. Applications are referred to the
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.
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 Graduate School
Application for Admission: Admission
forms and information concerning admission
procedures may be obtained from the appropri-
ate department. Prospective students are urged
to apply for admission as early as possible. For
some departments, deadlines for receipt of
admission applications may be earlier than
those in the current university calendar;
prospective students should consult the appro-
priate department. Applications which meet
minimum standards are referred for admission
decisions to the graduate selection committees.
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. For com-
plete information, consult the Graduate Catalog.
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.
Admission to the Graduate School is depen-
dent upon the presentation of a baccalaureate
degree from an accredited college or university.
The departments will make admission decisions
when they have received test scores, official
transcripts and letters of recommendation.
Applicants must provide two copies of com-
plete, official transcripts for all undergraduate
and graduate course work. One copy must be
sent to the Office of the University Registrar and
one copy to the intended department. No tran-
script will be accepted as official unless it is
received directly from the registrar of the insti-
tution in which the work was done. Official sup-
plementary transcripts are required as soon as
they are available for any work completed after
application for admission has been made. In
general, no student who is a graduate of a
nonaccredited institution will be considered for
graduate study in any college or department of
the university.
The Board of Regents also has ruled that in
admitting students for a given academic year,
up to ten percent may be admitted as excep-
tions. Students admitted as exceptions under
the ten-percent waiver rule must present both
an upper division grade point average and GRE
score with their application and meet other cri-
teria required by the university.

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.
All international students applying for
admission to the Master of Business Admin-
istration program must submit satisfactory
scores from the GMAT before their applica-
tion for admission will be considered.
International students are required to hold
health and accident insurance as a condition
of enrollment. Such insurance must be
payable in U.S. dollars and should not be
limited in use to a particular hospital, clinic,
agency, or institution delivering health care.
Failure to comply may result in cancellation
of registration.
International students, whose scores on the
TOEFL and verbal portion of the GRE are not
indicative of adequate writing skills, are
required to write a short essay for examination.
If the skills demonstrated in the essay are not









acceptable for pursuing graduate work, the
examination will be used as a diagnostic tool for
placement in appropriate courses, which will
not count toward a graduate degree.
Graduate students whose native language is
not English may be asked to submit satisfactory
scores on the Test of Spoken English (TSE) to be
eligible for teaching assistantships.
Applicants 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.)

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 is recom-
mended. The quality of the academic back-
ground as well as the performance of the stu-
dent 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


ADMISSIONS


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-
tion. A personal interview will be required for
final acceptance.
SGraduate students who are candidates for
the Ph.D. degree in medical sciences should
apply through the Graduate School.
(Refer to the more detailed description in the
College of Medicine catalog.)

Admission to the College of
Veterinary Medicine
When to Apply: Application forms are
available between August 1 and December 1
from the Office of the Dean for Students and
Instruction, College of Veterinary Medicine. The
application forms must be received by the
Office of Admissions by 4:30 p.m., December 8,

Candidates seeking admission to programs
leading to the Master of Science or Doctor of
Philosophy degree with emphasis on animal
disease problems should apply through the
Graduate School.

higher on the Test of English as a Foreign
Language (TOEFL).
* International students whose native language
is English or who have studied at a United

commissions and foundations, at Binational
Centers, and from many private organizations
such as the Institute of International Education
(IIE), America-Mideast Education and Training
Services, Inc. (AMIDEAST), African American

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.







ADMISSIONS


Readmissions
Application for Readmission
This information applies only to students
who have been previously admitted and who
have attended the university.
Former undergraduate students who do not
enroll at 'the university for two consecutive
terms, including any summer term, must apply
for readmission. Readmission, however, is not
guaranteed and is subject to the availability of
space at the appropriate level in the desired col-
lege or major. Students who skip a single term
will be scheduled automatically for a registra-
tion appointment for one additional term only.
How to Apply for Readmissioni An appli-
cant should request application forms from the
Office of Admissions, Box 114000, University of
Florida, Gainesville, FL, 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 published in the university 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 institu-
tion. (Note: Grades received at other institu-
tions are not averaged with grades received
at the University of Florida for the purpose
of meeting university grade-point average
requirements.) Students must list all institu-
tions attended and provide complete official
transcripts from each. Failure to declare
attendance 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 previously 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.)

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.









Advanced Standing
Opportunities
The university provides numerous opportu-
nities by which students may accelerate their
academic careers and reduce the overall length
of time spent completing degree requirements.
Early Admission:
Superior students can be admitted to the
university following completion of the junior
year in high school. Applications will be consid-
ered on an individual basis. For funding pur-
poses, early admission students from Florida
high schools may be considered as dual credit
enrollment students.
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,
the student may qualify for tuition-exempt dual
enrollment credit and may receive textbooks/
materials on a lend-return basis. There must be
an articulation agreement between the
University of Florida and the home county
school board, developmental research school or
other secondary school.


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, refer to
Academic Regulations (especially the sections on
Dual Enrollment and Nondegree Registration).
Increased Course Load:
Students who register for more than 15
hours per semester may complete a traditional
four-year degree in a shorter period of time.
Year-Round Attendance:
Students attending the university every
semester, including summers, may advance
their graduation by two semesters.
Credit by Examination:
A student may participate in several credit
by examination programs to earn credit toward
a degree. Credit received from one exam pro-
gram may not be duplicated by another. A max-
imum of 30 semester hours may be granted by
combining AP, IB and CLEP credit.
International Baccalaureate Program: Students
receiving the IB diploma will receive up to 30
semester hours of credit for scores of 4 or higher
on both higher level and subsidiary level exami-


nations. Students who do not receive the IB
diploma will receive credit for scores of 5 or
higher on higher level examinations only.
IB Computing Studies, English A/A1,
History, History of Americas, History of Europe,
Mathematics, Math Studies and Math Methods
count toward the Gordon Rule requirement.
Advanced Placement Program: Under this pro-
gram, a student entering the university offers an
examination score as evidence of completion of
a college-level course taken in high school. If the
results of the examination meet the require-
ments listed below, the student may receive uni-
versity credit. The courses listed below indicate
the approximate University of Florida course
equivalencies that will appear on the student's
UF transcript. Advanced placement credit will
appear on the students permanent record.
Notes about AP credit:
Credit will be awarded only once for the same
subject. UF credit awarded for dual enrollment
courses takes precedence over AP or IB credit. If
AP or IB credit is the issue, the exam yielding the
most credit will be awarded.
AP credit counts toward completion of the
general education requirement only if the UF
course identified on the equivalencies chart
awards gen ed credit.

ADVANCED STANDING OPPORTUNITIES


AP English, history, art history, government
and politics, music theory and psychology
count toward Gordon Rule communication.
AP mathematics and computer science count
toward Gordon Rule computation.
AP French, Spanish, German, and Latin fulfill
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences language
requirement.
Students who will continue their study of
biology, chemistry, math and physics should
consult an academic adviser for placement.
College Level Examination Program (CLEP):
With appropriate scores, students may receive as
many as 30 semester hours credit toward gradu-
ation. CLEP examination scores must meet the
minimums established by the State University
System. Students beginning in the fall or spring
term must have taken the exam(s) before
enrolling or, at the latest, prior to the end of the
first term of enrollment at the university; stu-
dents who begin in the summer must have taken
the exam(s) prior to the end of their first fall
term. CLEP testing is available on campus peri-
odically and is administered by the Office of
Instructional Resources.
The university awards credit for CLEP exam-
inations based on the following scaled scores:


CLEP

Humanities Scale Score 490 6
Mathematics Scale Score 500 6
NOTE: CLEP credit may not be used to ful-
fill the 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
decision about taking the CLEP general exami-
nation in English. Experience has shown that
those who score below the 75th percentile are
often handicapped because they have not had
college courses in composition. However, those
students who do decide to take the CLEP
English examination are required to take the
essay option so that their scores will be based in
part on a writing sample.

CLEP Subject Area Examinations: If English
subject examinations (Freshman English or
English Composition) are taken, the essay
option must also be taken. A minimum score
ensures that the essay portion of the exam is eli-
gible for review by UF evaluators. This score in
itself does not guarantee that credit will be
awarded; favorable review must be received on
the essay. A minimum score of 51 is required
for college composition and for freshman


English. The maximum credit allowed, if the
minimum score is achieved and the essay is
acceptable, is six semester hours.
Students in the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences can use CLEP Spanish, French and
German examinations to exempt the college lan-
guage requirement.
Department Examinations: Departments may
grant credit to students who perform well on
departmental subject examinations. For specific
information, contact the relevant department.
SAT II Placement Examinations:
Scores on the SAT II are the basic criteria for
placement in English composition, calculus,
chemistry, Spanish, French, German and Latin.
Prior to registration, all freshmen will be
required to present an SAT II writing achieve-
ment test score. Scores also must be submitted
by students who plan to enroll in chemistry, cal-
culus or French, German, Latin and Spanish (if
students have some prior study of these lan-
guages elsewhere). Students may substitute
AP/IB credit for any SAT II examinations.
Consult the SAT II information in the
Admissions section of this catalog.
Superior results allow students to enter
advanced courses at the beginning of their col-
lege careers, to fulfill some requirements by
examination rather than by course work, and in
some instances to earn credit toward the
degree.

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 department 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
Academic 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
Academic 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 expected
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 Academic
Advising Center or by writing to the depart-
ment chair, the director of the advising center
or the individual responsible for the respec-
tive academic advising unit.

Student Housing
The University of Florida offers resident
students a unique and exciting residence hall pro-
gram. Living on campus is a profitable







STUDENT AFFAIRS


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 educa-
tional goals and objectives of the university.
The university has a large resident popula-
tion of both in-state and out-of-state students, as
well as students from 100 different foreign
countries. Since students come from differing
environmental backgrounds and social experi-
ences, they bring with them varying needs and
expectations. Because of this diversity in the stu-
dent body, it would be a disservice to students
to take a unilateral approach in developing the
residence hall program. Therefore, the Division
of Housing has developed a program based
upon alternatives and choices. Students may
select from housing accommodations and envi-
ronments that best fit their needs.
General Information: All freshmen who are
admitted to the university receive a housing
application scan form with their letter of admis-
sion from the Office of Admissions until housing
facilities are full.
The university has no residency requirement
for freshmen attending the university 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-campus hous-
ing. Entering students are free to choose either
on-campus or off-campus accommodations.
Students who voluntarily contract for on-cam-
pus 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 residence 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 to meet the varying needs of students:
single rooms, double rooms, triple rooms, suites
for 2/3/4/5/6 and apartments. The most
prevalent room style is the double room which
accommodates two residents.

dresser(s), bed(s) and mattress(es), study
desk(s) and chairss. Rental rates include cable
television service, local telephone service and
utilities (limited utilities in the Apartment

Residence Hall Staff: The Division of Housing
employs nearly 700 full-time and part-time staff.
Staff include custodians, maintenance techni-
cians and tradesmen, clerical staff, administra-
tors 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 directors
of housing for residence life (ADHs). An under-
graduate RA or co-op officer lives on each floor
or section to serve as a peer adviser aiding stu-
dents in their transition to the university experi-
ence. Each building additionally has graduate
HDs or full-time professional RDs with ARDs
who supervise RAs, help to promote a learning
environment and coordinate area activities. The
ADH, a full-time university administrator, is
responsible for the overall administrative and
educational functions 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 partici-
pate in organizational activities that play a sig-
nificant part in their educational, cultural, social
and recreational life. The Inter-Residence Hall
Association was established to help stimulate
this participation. IRHA represents the collective
interests of all resident students. This organiza-
tion also serves as a channel of communication
between residence area government councils,
the university community and other outside
interests. This self-government program at both
the hall and area levels offers residents the


opportunity to help establish guidelines for
group living and to assist in the planning of
social and educational activities for their fellow
students.

GENERAL SERVICES
Local Telephone Service: A telephone jack
that provides 24-hour service on campus and
within the Gainesville area is located in each stu-
dent room. Students provide their own touch-
tone telephones. Cost of local service is included

ments for a refrigerator after arriving on-cam-
pus 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 custo-
dians assigned to clean public areas, bathrooms,
lounges and hallways. Individual room cleaning
is the responsibility of each resident.
Security: Security is a shared responsibility
of the university, residence hall staff and resi-
dents. Residents must take precautions to pro-
tect themselves and their personal property.
Residence hall staff and the University Police
Department provide information and plan pro-
grams about security education. Residence hall
security is monitored by the residence hall staff;
external building security generally is the
responsibility of the University Police
Department. Division of Housing security assis-
tants patrol the areas immediately adjacent to
the residence halls from 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.
when classes are in session.

Student Financial Affairs
The Office for Student Financial Affairs
(SFA) coordinates and administers most student
financial aid programs at the university 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 scholarships and grants.
Students do not have to repay these awards.
"Self-help" programs include loans and
employment and are so named because stu-
dents must repay loans and must work for
money awarded through employment pro-
grams. Awards to students consist of scholar-
ships, 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 complete (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 pro-
gram, Federal Direct Stafford/Ford 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 apply for
aid as soon as possible after January 1 each year.
How to Apply: Financial aid applications are
not sent to students automatically when they
apply for admission. University of Florida
financial aid application packets are available
from most Florida community colleges and high
school guidance offices. Students also may
request financial aid applications by contacting
the Office for Student Financial Affairs, Box
114025, 103 Criser Hall, Gainesville, Florida
32611-4025, or by calling (352) 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 March 15. Be sure to allow at least
three weeks processing time at the need-analy-
sis agency. A Financial Aid Transcript from all
previously attended institutions covering all


periods of attendance is required for all transfer
students for their files to be considered com-
plete. When completing 1996-1997 forms, stu-
dents should provide accurate financial figures
taken directly from completed 1995 income tax
forms. To comply with federal financial aid
requirements, the Office for Student Financial
Affairs must verify information students and
parents supply on their application forms.
Incorrect information or incorrectly completed
application forms can cause aid to be delayed or
denied. Students should keep copies of all their
financial aid documents.
Confidentiality of Student Records: The uni-
versity ensures the confidentiality of student
records in accordance with State University
System statutes, and the Family Education
Rights and Privacy Action of 1974, known as the
Buckley Amendment. Students' family financial
information and the type and amount of their
aid are held in confidence. Information is
released only with the student's written consent.
Important Deadlines: Financial aid applica-
tions should be completed and sent to the
appropriate processor as soon as possible after
January 1. March 15 is the on-time deadline for
Student Financial Affairs to receive your infor-
mation from the need analysis agency. Students
who wish to be considered for campus-based
and institutional programs (such as Federal
Work-Study, Federal Perkins Loans, 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. Ford
Federal Direct Loan Program on-time deadlines
are set by semester. The on-time deadline for
applying for Federal Direct Stafford/Ford,
Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford/Ford, and
Federal Direct PLUS loans for Fall 1996 is June
1. Individual colleges within the university and
private organizations have their own deadlines
for applying for aid.
Graduate Aid: Graduate students at the
University of Florida may be eligible for part-
time employment and loans through SFA
and/or for assistantships and fellowships
through their colleges. To apply for Federal
Work Study and loans, graduate students must
follow the procedures in HOW TO APPLY,
including applying as early as possible. Off-cam-
pus jobs and the state-funded OPS job program
are not based on need and are available through
the Student Employment Office. For other grad-
uate aid such as fellowships and assistantships,
students should apply through the Graduate
School and the dean's offices of their colleges.
Types of Aid: Scholarships are awarded based
on academic performance and financial need.
SFA awards a limited number of scholarships to
academically outstanding undergraduates with
documented need. Most academic achievement
scholarships are awarded through the Office of







STUDENT AFFAIRS


Admissions. Individual colleges within the uni-
versity also offer scholarships to undergradu-
ates. For information, students should contact
the dean of their college. Many private donors
offer scholarships, selecting the recipients)
directly; students should contact civic clubs, ser-
vice organizations, private corporations and
other resources in their home communities.
Grants are awarded to undergraduate stu-
dents with financial need. Awards range from
$100 to $4,000. The two largest grant programs
available at the university are the Federal Pell
Grant and the state-funded Florida Student
Assistance Grant.
Loans are available to undergraduate stu-
dents who can apply for the following student
loans:
Federal Family Education Loans include the
following: unsubsidized and subsidized Federal
Direct Stafford/Ford Loans, University of
Florida Institutional Loans and Federal Perkins
Loans. Parents of dependent undergraduates
also can take out educational loans for their son
or daughter through the Federal Direct 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 upward from $500 per academic
year at interest rates from 0 percent and 25 per-
cent annually. The amount of each loan, except
for Federal Direct unsubsidized Stafford/Ford
Loans and Federal Direct PLUS loans, is based
on need as determined from information the
borrower provides on the FAFSA.
The university also has a Short-Term Loan
program to help students meet emergency
financial needs related to educational expenses.
Students may borrow up to $400 or the amount
of in-state tuition if they have an acceptable
repayment source. Interest is 1 percent per
month and these loans must be repaid by the
first day of the last month in the semester in
which the money is borrowed. Short-Term Loan
applications are available in 107 Criser Hall.
Part-time employment through the univer-
sity 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
departments help students arrange their work-
ing 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: Federal Work-Study,
including the Federal Community Service com-
ponent; Other Personnel Services (OPS); and
off-campus jobs. Federal Work Study is based
on need and is awarded to students as part of
their overall financial aid package. OPS jobs are
state-funded and are not based on need. Student
employment maintains job bulletin boards for
all three programs at the following locations:
Criser Hall courtyard, McCarty Hall first floor,


Norman Hall first floor, outside 305 Reitz
Union, and outside H101 Shands Medical
Center. The Criser Hall job board is updated
daily, and weekly updates are posted at the
other locations.

(SFA) offers several information services to stu-
dents, including SFA TIPS (Touchtone
Interactive Phone System), a World Wide Web

Students in programs requiring more
than 130 credit hours to earn a baccalaureate
degree may receive up-to-eleven full-time terms
(or the equivalent) of aid; and
Students admitted under the Board of
Regents 10 percent admissions policy in a pro-
gram requiring more than 130 credit hours may
receive up-to-twelve full-time terms (or the
equivalent) of aid.
The maximum number of terms students
transferring to the university may receive aid is
prorated based on their entering enrollment sta-
tus. For example, a student enrolling as a junior
may receive a maximum of five terms of aid to
earn a baccalaureate degree. Aid received at
another institution is not included in this limit.
Postbaccalaureate Students: Students enrolled
in postbaccalaureate studies must petition the
Academic Progress Appeals Committee to
receive financial aid. Postbaccalaureate students
must meet the same academic requirements as
undergraduates, as specified above. The types
of financial aid available to postbaccalaureate
students depend on the student's degree-seek-
ing status.

Graduate Students: Students must maintain a
2.0 minimum cumulative grade point average or
meet the academic standards required by their
departments, whichever is higher.
Students will be ineligible for aid if they do
not attain their degree objectives after carrying
the maximum number of credit hours listed
below (whether or not they have received aid
for all terms):


70 credit hours at the graduate level for a
master's degree program.
200 credit hours at the graduate level for
a Doctor of Pharmacy degree (including under-
graduate hours).
100 credit hours at the graduate level for
a specialist's degree program (including mas-
ter's degree hours).
120 credit hours at the graduate level for
a doctoral degree program (including master's
degree hours).
Students must earn 75 percent of their credit
hours carried at the graduate level. If they do
not, they will be on financial aid probation for
one term. During the following term of enroll-
ment these students must increase their credit
hours to the minimum. If they do not, they will
be suspended from receiving aid until they meet
the standard.
Law Students: Students must maintain a 2.0
minimum cumulative grade point average, or
meet academic standards required by the
College of Law, whichever is higher. They will
be ineligible for aid if they do not attain their
degree objective after carrying the maximum
credit hours listed below (whether or not they
received aid for those terms):
45 credit hours at the graduate level for
students enrolled in the Master of Laws in
Taxation program; and
100 credit hours at the graduate level for
students enrolled in the Juris Doctor program.
Students will be evaluated each term for eli-
gibility to enroll for the following term.
Professional Students in the Colleges of
Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary Science:
Since professional schools use a non-traditional
grading system (one not based upon GPA) to
assess satisfactory completion of course work,
the same policy (a similar non-traditional
approach) will be used to measure qualitative
progress for continuing financial aid eligibility.
Students must earn their degrees within four
years. They will be evaluated annually in
September to determine advancement to the
next class level. If they do not advance to the
next class level but are still eligible for enroll-
ment they will be on financial aid probation the
following year. Students who have not
advanced to the next class level by the end of
the probationary period will no longer be eligi-
ble for financial aid.
Additional Policies Which Apply to All
Students
Students who withdraw from school once
while receiving financial aid will be on financial
aid warning;
Students who withdraw from school more
than once while receiving financial aid will no
longer be eligible for financial aid;
Withdrawal from a Summer A or B term
will constitute one-half of a withdrawal;
Course withdrawals, incomplete and
course repetitions will conform to the academic
standards used by the university for determin-
ing grade point average;


Remedial courses are not offered at the
university; and
Students who think they have extenuating
circumstances that have contributed to their fail-
ure to maintain satisfactory academic progress
may petition the Academic Progress Appeals
Committee for reassessment of their status.
Students who enroll in curricula not specif-
ically addressed in this policy must petition
the academic progress appeals committee to
continue to receive financial aid.

review. Other computer-assisted career guid-
ance (CACG) programs will also be available in
the CRC in the near future.
A Career Workshop Program offers 16-18
different seminar sessions, most on at least a
weekly basis. Sessions are 50 minutes in length
and taught within the CRC's own career devel-
opment laboratory. Topics include career plan-
ning, cooperative education, job search corre-
spondence, resume preparation, interview tech-
niques, overseas jobs and many others.
The center also offers an extensive career
resource library of over 2,500 career skills books,
directories, reference materials and employer
literature, supplemented by an audio-visual
facility of more than 250 video and audio tapes.
The Cooperative Education Program and
Internship Program enables students to gain
professional work experience related to class-
room education. They also provide a source of
income to pay college expenses and enable stu-
dents to become more competitive when enter-
ing the job market.
Hundreds of recruiters visit the CRC each
semester and conduct thousands of on-campus
job interviews, the largest such program in the
state. The center uses lstPlace!, a revolutionary
new career center management system, which
provides an increased level of services in a more
efficient and timely manner for students and
employers alike. The students' access to the sys-
tem is via G.R.A.D. Professional, or the Gator
Resume Action Disc Professional version. This
is a self-contained PC-compatible computer disc
which combines a professional-quality resume
preparation program up to five different
resume versions may be prepared and stored -
with a demographic section used to register
with the CRC. Students who wish to participate
in the on-campus interview program whether
for full-time, co-op or internship positions -
must purchase the disc at the Student Service
Counter in the CRC. They then follow the sim-
ple instructions contained on the disc, complete
both the information and resume sections on
their own PC or at one of the many computer
labs on campus. They then must bring the disc
back to the center, where the information is
downloaded into the CRC's system and the disc
is returned to the student. The student should
keep the information current and bring the
updated disc back to the CRC on a regular basis
- the resume can also be used for the student's
personal job search process. Once the informa-
tion is in the CRC system, the student is regis-
tered with the center and may participate in on-
campus interviews for full-time, co-op and
internship positions. In addition, the center uses
the information and the resume to provide
direct referrals to employers who have
requested candidates for positions or resume
data prior to on-campus interviews.
Career Days. The center sponsors a number
of these events each semester. Career Expo
offers all UF students an opportunity to meet
and discuss career and employment opportuni-
ties with hundreds of national corporations.

file and seeking employment to interested
employers requesting candidates to fill job
vacancies.

service available to university students through
a touch-tone phone. There are more than 80 cat-
egories of immediate job openings available for
review in which positions have been listed by
telephone by employers and have been posted
in their own words and voices. Students need
only review the listings; when they find a poten-
tial position to their liking, they follow the
employer's instructions. The phone number for
this service is 392-JOBS (or 392-5627). Students
must obtain an access password in advance
from the CRC, room B-1 Reitz Union.
A branch of the CRC, the Liberal Arts and

ment focused specifically on the students in the
respective colleges.

Student Life

Student Activities and
Organizations
Student Government: Student Government at
the University of Florida is a cooperative orga-
nization for advancing student interests and is
based on mutual confidence among the student
body, the faculty and the administration.
Considerable authority has been granted the
student body for the regulation and conduct of
student affairs. The criterion in granting author-
ity to 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
more than six million dollars annually in stu-
dent activity and service fees, substantial
authority in the regulation of co-curricular
activities and administration of the Student
Honor and Traffic Courts. University adminis-
tration, faculty and staff feel that training in and
responsibility for the conduct of student affairs
is a valuable part of educational growth and
development.
Student Government is the governing orga-
nization and representative of the student body.
Each student of the university is a member of
the student body. Student Government func-
tions under a constitution and by-laws that have
been accepted by the university as expressing
the will of the students, although Student
Government functions on campus with the
recognition that ultimate authority for univer-
sity affairs rests with the administration of the
university. 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 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, Lambda
Theta Phi, Phi Delta Theta, Phi Beta Sigma, Phi
Kappa Sigma, Phi Kappa Tau, Pi Kappa Alpha,
Pi Lambda Phi, Sigma Chi, Sigma Nu, Sigma
Phi Epsilon, Sigma Pi, Tau Epsilon Phi, Tau
Kappa Epsilon, Theta Chi and Zeta Beta Tau.
Eighteen women's sororities have estab-
lished chapters at the university. Sixteen have
built chapter houses and two 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 Mu, 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
In fall 1995 the University of Flbrida student
body enacted a new honor code and voluntarily
committed itself to the highest standards of
honesty and integrity. When students enroll at
the university, they commit themselves to the
standard drafted and enacted by the students.
Preamble: In adopting this honor code, the
students of the University of Florida recognize
that academic honesty and integrity are funda-
mental values of the university community.
Students who enroll at the university commit to
holding themselves and their peers to the high
standard of honor required by the honor code.
Any individual who becomes aware of a viola-
tion of the honor code is bound by honor to take
corrective action. A student-run Honor Court
and faculty support are crucial to the success of
the honor code. The quality of a University of
Florida education is dependent upon community
acceptance and enforcement of the honor code.


The Honor Code: We, the members of the
University of Florida community, pledge to
hold ourselves and our peers to the highest
standards of honesty and integrity.
On all work submitted for credit by students
at the University of Florida, the following
pledge is either required or implied:
"On my honor, I have neither given nor
received unauthorized aid in doing this assign-
ment."
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.

Student Conduct Code
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
Alligator, the Undergraduate Catalog, the UF
Student Guide or other reasonable means of
notification.
Authority: The president is charged with
responsibility for establishing and enforcing
regulations governing student life. Regulations
are designed to enable the university to protect
against the conduct of those who, by their
actions, impair or infringe on the rights of oth-
ers or interfere with the orderly operations of
the university. Discipline may be imposed for
offenses against the Student Conduct Code
occurring at any of the following locations or
activities:
University campus;
SUniversity owned or controlled property;
Property or housing units assigned for
responsibility to the university, including,
but not limited to, fraternity and sorority
property;
SActivities sponsored by the university;
SActivities officially approved by the univer-
sity which are conducted by university char-
tered organizations; and
Activities occurring off campus as provided
in VI.
[II. Rules of Procedure: The primary judicial
bodies authorized by President Lombardi and
charged with the administration and enforce-
ment of this code shall formulate and furnish to
students charged with an offense, rules of pro-
cedure which shall ensure basic procedural fair-
ness. Students charged with less serious viola-
tions can choose an informal proceeding or a
formal hearing. Students who choose an infor-
mal proceedings shall be accorded the right to
A. Have an adviser present;
B. Be provided, prior to the proceeding, the
nature and source of the evidence which
will be used by the university; and
C. Be free from compulsory self-incrimina-
tion.

violations will choose between a formal hearing
with a conduct committee or a university hear-
ing officer. Students who choose a formal hear-
ing will be accorded the right to


A. Have an adviser present;

to his/her defense;
D. Be provided, prior to the proceeding, the
nature and source of the evidence which

In cases involving potential sanctions other
than suspension, expulstion or removal from
housing, if the student was sent notice of the
hearing to the address on file in the registrar's
records or the notice was hand delivered and the
student fails to appear at the hearing, the stu-
dent has waived the right to attend the hearing,
which may then proceedin the student's absence.
For serious offenses which may involve removal
from housing, suspension or expulsion, the hear-
ing will be held only to preserve the evidence.
The record of student judicial hearings are in
the student's educational record and are closed,
unless the accused student requests an open
hearing a minimum of five working days before
the hearing. All student witnesses must agree in
writing to this request.
The findings of the the hearing officer/com-
mittee are based on the preponderance of the
evidence.

ous physical harm to himself/herself or others
at the university, or immediate suspension is
necessary to protect the health, safety or welfare
of the student or others at the university, the

Off-Campus Conduct: When a student violates
city, state or federal law by an offense commit-
ted 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 is intimidating or threatening to another indi-
vidual within the University Community; or the
offense committed by the student is of such a
serious nature as to adversely affect the stu-
dents suitability as a member of the University
Community. If the Director of Student Judicial
Affairs determines that disciplinary action is
warranted, the Director of Student Judicial
Affairs shall notify the student in accordance
with Rule 6C1-4.16(5). The action of the univer-
sity with respect to any off-campus conduct
shall be made independent of any off-campus
authority.

Postponement of Hearing Due to Pending or
Possible Criminal or Civil Charges: If the stu-
dent 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.

Student Waiver of Right to Hearing: In the
event a student charged with a violation of the
Student Conduct Code desires to waive the
right to a hearing by the appropriate official or
hearing body, and the student so indicates in
writing, the Director of Student Judicial Affairs,
Assistant Director of Student Judicial Affairs,
Coordinator of Residential Judicial Programs, or
Residence Directors, provided he/she agrees to
accept jurisdiction, may make a determination
of fact and take appropriate action concerning
the alleged violation.

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.


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.

Sanctions: A student adjudicated responsible
for violations of the Academic Honesty
Guidelines shall be subject to sanctions com-
mensurate with the offense with consideration
given to any aggravating and mitigating cir-
cumstances. Sanctions may include, but are not

Intercollegiate Athletics
For each of the last 11 years, the University
of Florida's intercollegiate athletic program has
ranked among the nation's 10 best, based on
research conducted by USA TODAY and the
National Association of Collegiate Directors of
Athletics.
Propelled by six national top 10 team fin-
ishes, the University of Florida athletic program
ranked fifth in the 1994-95 Sears Directors' Cup
national all-sports competition.
Florida has now ranked among the nation's
five best collegiate athletic programs for six con-
secutive years and among the nation's top 10 for
12 years. Florida and UCLA are the only schools
to finish in the top 10 in national all-sports rank-
ings every year since 1983-84.
The Directors' Cup program, conducted by
the National Association of Collegiate Directors
of Athletics and sponsored by Sears, annually
recognizes the schools with the best overall
sports performances in an academic year.
The all-sports champion is determined by
points awarded for an institution's finish in 22
sports based on participation. Despite fielding
only 16 teams eligible for points, Florida still
finished fifth in the rankings.
The Gators accumulated 691 points for their
fifth-place finish. Stanford captured the all-
sports trophy with 971.5 points, while North
Carolina was runner-up with 789.5 points.
UCLA ranked third with 752.5 points and
Arizona finished fourth with 716.5.
Gator teams to finish in the top 10 of their
respective sport in 1994-95 included women's
tennis (2nd), football (7th), gymnastics (7th),


women's swimming and diving (8th), men's ten-
nis (9th) and volleyball (9th). Since 1980, Florida
teams have now finished in the final top 10 of
their respective sport a total of 116 times.
The Gators captured five Southeastern
Conference championships in 1994-95 (football,
volleyball, women's golf, women's swimming,
women's tennis) and for the seventh time in the
last eight years UF ranked as the top program in
the SEC. Since 1980, Florida teams have now
won a total of 75 SEC titles, a total representing
hte most league crowns for a conference mem-
ber that time span.
In addition, 49 different Gator athletes
earned All-American accolades in 1994-95 and
Florida's coaching staff uppped its SEC Coach-
of-the-year honors to 20 over the last four years.
Florida was equally successful away from
the athletic arena in 1994-95, as 71 student-ath-
letes were named to the Southeastern
Conference's Academic Honor Roll. Florida now
has had 216 Academic All-SEC recipients over
the last three years the best three-year total in
UF and SEC history. Since 1980-81, UF student-
athletes have accumulated 650 total SEC
Academic Honor Roll honors, the total total in
the SEC during that span.
In addition, in an era when the NCAA esti-
mates 70 percent of Division I schools are losing
mey on intercollegiate athletics, the Gator ath-
letic program continued to have an impact in
regard to university academic programs. Since
1988, the University Athletic Association has
contributed $9.4 million dollars to the university
to fund academic endeavors.
Florida's athletic program also serves as a
focal point for the surrounding community and
beyond, as 3.2 million fans have filed through
the gates to attend UF sporting events over the
past four years. In addition the "Goodwill
Gators" a program where UF student-athletes,
coaches and administrators take part in commu-
nity-related endeavors like visiting schools and
hospitals was recently honored with a White
House Commendation for volunteerism.
The Gators field eight men's teams and nine
women's teams. The men compete in baseball,
basketball, cross country, football, golf, swim-
ming & diving, tennis and track & field, while
the women participate in basketball, cross coun-
try, golf, gymnastics, swimming & diving, soc-
cer, tennis, track & field and volleyball.
In terms of Olympic competition, since 1968
74 Gator student-athletes have represented 14
countries in six Olympic Games, while staking
claim to 49 medals, including 25 golds. Twenty-
one Gators and.one UF coach represented six
countries in Barcelona, Spain in the 1992
Summer Olympics. Those 21 won 12 medals,
including seven golds.
Florida competes in the Southeastern
Conference (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.


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
(football stadium) serves as the hub for the ath-
letic complex. With its 83,000 seats, Ben Hill
Griffin Stadium at Florida Field is one of the
eight largest on-campus football stadiums in the
nation. UF has ranked among the nation's top 15
in average football attendance for 13 consecu-
tive years and among the country's top five for
four straight years.
Since 1986, Florida has had $40 million in
capital improvements, including two major expa
of the football stadium, a multipurpose athletic
fieldhouse and new tennis, track & field and soc-
cer, baseball, golf and swimming facilities.
Another sign of Florida's commitment to
excellence within its athletic complex is the
12,000-seat Stephen C. O'Connell Center an
air-inflated dome which houses Gator basket-
ball and also transforms into an indoor track &
field facility, while also being home to the
swimming and gymnastic teams.
Gators just love their sports, as there are 70
courts and outdoor playing fields on the
University of Florida campus and the O'Connell
Center and a recreation and fitness center is
available for indoor sports. In all, Florida offers
more than 60 intramural and club 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 dirve away,
as well as many of the attractions which the
Sunshine State has to offer.
Intramural Leagures: For structured competi-
tive play, intramural leagues and tournaments
are scheduled for traditional as well as non-tra-
ditional activities. Specific leagues available for
the sports of flag football, volleyball, soccer, bas-
ketball, and softball are Women's Independent,
Co-Ed, Recreational, Men's Independent, A and
B, Graduate, Residence Hall, 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 pro-
vides structured, competitive athletic opportu-
nities 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 students, faculty, staff and their guests. The
specific activities and facilities available at Lake
Wauburg North include sailing, boardsailing,

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 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 admitted to upper divi-
sion status in state universities 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. Transfer students
with fewer than 96 semester hours must pass
the test by the end of the first term in which it is
available to them. Transfer applicants with
more than 96 hours must have passed CLAST
before they can apply to UF.
The Office of Instructional Resources, 1012
Turlington Hall, phone (352) 392-1715, can tell
you how and when to apply to take the CLAST.
The Academic Advising Center, Box 112015,
Gainesville, FL, 32611-2015, phone (352) 392-
1521, can provide you with a list of CLAST
skills.

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, class, college and
major; dates of attendance; degrees) earned;
honors and awards received; local, permanent
and e-mail addresses; telephone number; most
recent previous educational institution
attended; participation 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 from 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
general education courses that are listed in each
term's schedule of courses. College Level
Examination Program (CLEP) credit cannot be
used to satisfy the writing requirement.
In addition, each student must complete
with grades of C or higher, 6 credits of course
work in mathematics, at or above the level of
college algebra, OR 3 credits in mathematics
and an additional 3 credits in statistics, com-
puter science or the logic courses PHI 2100 or
PHI 3130.
Acceptable mathematics course prefixes
include: MAA, MAC, MAD, MAP, MAS, MAT,
MGF, MHF or MTG. Courses fulfilling this
requirement are identified in each term's sched-
ule of courses.
The following course may NOT be used to
satisfy the mathematical sciences or computa-
tion requirement: CGS 3063.
The communication-computation course
work must be completed satisfactorily prior to
earning 60 credits. Courses acceptable for the
computation requirement are identical to the
general education mathematical sciences
requirement (refer to the Lower Division section
of this catalog). Any student satisfying College
Level Examination Program (CLEP) require-
ments in mathematics can exempt three (3) cred-
its.

Student Records and Transcripts
The Office of the University Registrar main-
tains students' academic records. At the end of
each term of enrollment, students are notified in
writing of their grades, cumulative hours
earned, grade points, probationary status and
degrees earned, if any. Students also may call
TeleGator (352-374-2867 or 37GATOR) to
receive their grades.
Transcripts: Upon written request, the uni-
versity will provide academic transcripts for
any student who has attended the University of
Florida. The charge for each transcript is $5. To
reflect a complete academic record for under-
graduate, graduate and professional students,
the university will issue only complete tran-
scripts.

Transfer Credit Policy
Students may transfer a total of 64 credit
hours from community colleges as part of the
hours needed for their UF degrees, regardless of
when these hours are earned, but subject to uni-







ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


versity and college degree requirements.
However, junior and senior level course
requirements for the major must be completed
at UF or, with permission of the student's col-
lege, at another baccalaureate degree-granting
institution. At least 25% of semester credit
hours must be earned through instruction at the
University of Florida.
Accreditation by the Southern Association of
Colleges and Schools notes that "an adequate
number of hours with appropriate prerequisites
must be required in courses above the elemen-
tary level." The University of Florida interprets
this, based on commonly accepted good prac-
tice, to mean 60 credits in upper division
courses.
The courses represented by such credit hours
will be recorded on the student's University of
Florida record and may be used to satisfy vari-
ous requirements, but such courses may not
reduce the number of credit hours required in
the upper division at UF to earn a degree.
Courses completed with grades of D or
higher at other regionally accredited institutions
which reasonably parallel the curriculum at this
university will be accepted for transfer credit as
hours earned. It is the prerogative of the studen-
t's upper division college to determine how
transfer credit satisfies the specific degree's
course requirements. Students are required to
submit final official transcripts from all institu-
tions attended prior to or during their enroll-
ment at UF. Failure to declare attendance at
another institution can invalidate admission to
UF and any credits or degrees earned.
UF Students Attending Other Schools
Normally, UF students are not permitted to
register at another institution for a course or its
equivalent which is offered at UF.





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 are eligible to receive a fee 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.
Refer to the Student Affairs section of the cata-
log for enrollment requirements for students
receiving financial aid.
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 may drop below the minimum load with-
out 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 deadline
which are not approved for exception through
the petitions process will be assigned grades of
WF (withdrew failing). These grades will be cal-
culated as failing grades. Students seeking an
exception to this policy must follow the appro-
priate 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 Advanced Standing Oppor-
tunities for additional information.)
Students who have been denied admission
to UF for any term are not eligible for nondc-
gree registration. Students who have previously
attended UF in a degree seeking status who did
not subsequently earn a bachelor's degree are
not eligible for nondegree registration.'
Undergraduate students in good standing at
another accredited collegiate institution 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 approvals required by the parent insti-
tution. Certification to Social Security and
Veterans Administration programs also is the
responsibility of the student, who must request
each institution to furnish records.
Nondegree enrollment is subject to the avail-
ability of faculty, space and facilities. No appli-
cation for admission is required; the appropriate
forms should be requested from the Office of
the University Registrar. Priority for nondegree
enrollment is given to UF employees and to per-
manent residents of the Gainesville area.


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 terminate a nondegree enrollment prior
to registration for any term. Generally, non-
degree registration is for one term only.
Nondegree students are not eligible for
advance registration.
Registration for the fall or spring term is not
permitted until the third day of classes and
must be completed by the last day of late
registration; failure to register by that dead-
line will result in a late registration 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.
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
calendar. Nondegree students must pay
appropriate UF fees based on course level,
number of credits and residency status.

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 drop/add period should
be presented to the school or college.
Exceptions to the course load regulation are to
be presented to the school or college. 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 waiver of aca-
demic regulations for prior terms, should be pre-
sented to the Office of the University Registrar,
which will refer them to the University Senate
Committee on Student Petitions. Actions
approved by petition will become part of the
student's permanent record.
Detailed information on procedures to peti-
tion is available from the student's college or
from the Office of the University Registrar.







ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


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 deadline shall be assigned
grades of WF in all courses and will be subject
to suspension and exclusion regulations.
Students who leave UF without official with-
drawal normally will receive failing grades.
Students on academic probation who with-
draw from UF prior to the deadline will con-
tinue on probation until their grade point
deficit is reduced to zero. Students on
Admissions Committee probation must meet
the terms of their probation.
Students should contact the Office for Student
Services to begin withdrawal procedures.




Administrative Provisions
Students may not attend classes unless they
are registered officially or approved to audit
with evidence of having paid audit fees.
Following the end of drop/add, the Office of
the University Registrar provides evidence of
registration to instructors through distribution
of class rolls/addenda.
Students who do not attend at least one of
the first two class meetings of a course or labo-
ratory in which they are registered, and who
have not contacted the department which offers
the course to indicate their intent, may be
dropped from the course. The department will
notify students dropped from courses or labora-
tories under this provision by posting a notice
in the department office. Students may request
reinstatement on a space-available basis if docu-
mented evidence excusing the absence is pre-
sented 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 all
academic objectives as defined by the instructor.
Absences count from the first class meeting.
In general, acceptable reasons for absence
from class include illness, serious family emer-
gencies, special curricular requirements (e.g.,
judging trips, field trips, professional confer-
ences), military obligation, severe weather con-
ditions, religious holidays and participation in
official university activities such as music per-
formances, athletic competition or debate.
Absences from class for court-imposed legal
obligations (e.g., jury duty or subpoena) must
be excused. Other sound reasons may be offered
by the student.


Twelve-Day Rule
Students who participate in athletic or
extracurricular activities are permitted 12
scholastic day absences per semester without
penalty. (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 group's
schedule which requires absence of more than
12 days should be adjusted so that no student is
absent from campus more than 12 scholastic
days.
Students who previously have been warned
for absences or unsatisfactory work should not
incur additional absences, even if they have not
been absent 12 scholastic days. It is the student's
responsibility to maintain satisfactory academic
performance and attendance.

Reading Days
The two days prior to the start of examina-
tions in the fall and spring semesters, generally
a Thursday and Friday, are designated reading
days. There will be no classes held on these
days; instead, students are encouraged to use
these days for study and review. There are no
reading days in the summer terms because
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 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. Contact the Office
for Student Services, 392-1261, for medical with-
drawal procedures.

Last Week of Classes
No final or comprehensive examinations,
projects or term papers may be scheduled or
assigned during the final week of class for the
fall and spring terms. 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 pre-
sented, 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. A major test is one which
exceeds half of a class period. Take-home exam-
inations assigned as final examinations can be
due no earlier than the regularly scheduled final
examination. Laboratory sections are exempt.

Religious Holidays
The Board of Regents governs policy regard-
ing observance of religious holidays:


* Students shall be excused from class to
observe a religious holy day of their faith,
upon notifying their instructor.
Students are responsible for material cov-
ered in their absence; each student 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.
Faculty and administrators are encouraged
not to schedule exams or major events on
evenings or days observed as holy days by a
significant number of students. Students who
ask to be excused from class for religious rea-
sons will not be required to provide second-
party certification. Finally, a student who
believes that he or she has been unreasonably
denied an education benefit due to religious
beliefs or practices may seek redress through
the student grievance procedure.






Student grades are recorded permanently by
the Office of the University Registrar.
Credit: The word "credit" refers to one
semester hour, generally representing one hour
per week of lecture or two or more hours per
week of laboratory work.

which it is received, and it is not computed in
the grade point average; however, if the I* or
N* has not been changed by the end of the next
term for which the student is enrolled, it will be
counted as a failing grade and used in compu-
tation 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 graduating students; they receive grades of I
or NG.
An incomplete grade may be assigned at the
discretion of the instructor as an interim grade
for a course in which the student has (1) com-
pleted a major portion of the course with a pass-
ing grade, (2) been unable to complete course
requirements prior to the end of the term
because of extenuating circumstances, and (3)
obtained agreement from the instructor and
arranged for resolution of the incomplete grade.
Instructors are not required to assign incom-
plete grades.

Grade Point Averaging
and Deficits
The term "average" refers to the grade point
average for work completed at the university.
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


A =4.0 C =2.0
B+= 3.5 D+= 1.5
B = 3.0 D = 1.0
C+= 2.5 E = 0.0
Sample:

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 in-
volves only University of Florida course work:

calculation of only the UF grade in the UF grade
point average, with credit earned only once.

Upper division colleges may not accept
grade points and hours earned from lower
level courses, if they are taken after the stu-
dent has received credit/grades for advanced
courses or exam credit in the same field.
Repeat course equivalencies are identified
based on the state's common course taxonomy.
Refer to the statewide course numbering sys-
tem page at the back of this catalog for the def-
inition of course equivalencies.

Satisfactory-Unsatisfactory
Grade Option
Subject to college degree program and
department guidelines, students may take elec-
tive 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.
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
Gordon Rule may not be taken S-U.
For fall, spring and summer c terms, the S-U
Option deadline is Friday of the third week of
classes. For summer a and summer b terms, the
deadline is Wednesday of the second week of
classes. Once the S-U Option is approved, stu-
dents may not convert to a letter grade.














Academic Progress Policy
The University of Florida's goal is the gradu-
ation of every student who enters the university
as a freshman and every eligible student trans-
ferring from a Florida community college. The
criteria for admission to upper division acade-
mic programs will be the same for native stu-
dents and for eligible community college trans-
fer students.
At their option, colleges may early affiliate
native (first-time-in-college, FTIC) freshman
and sophomore students. Such students will
carry college designations and major designa-
tions. Students seeking majors in colleges
which do not admit freshmen or sophomores
will carry an LS designation along with the des-
ignation of their probable major. Students
undecided about their majors can choose an
undecided category. These categories represent
the broad fields of science and engineering
(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.
These performance standards include grade
point averages, grades in required prerequisite
or preprofessional courses, auditions, inter-
views, portfolios, etc., and for teacher education
curricula, SAT or ACT scores. The performance
standard set for 60 hours assures acceptance
into major programs for native (FTIC) students
who have passed CLAST and for community
college transfer students with A.A. degrees who
have passed CLAST. Community college trans-
fer students claiming completion of the A.A.
degree with CLAST who are admitted and sub-
sequently are found to be without the degree
and CLAST will revert to a nondegree- seeking
category. They will be required to reapply for
admission to their college of choice.
Students falling between the upper and
lower level standards at the 30- and 45-hour
benchmarks may seek advisement from the
Academic Advising Center or their department.
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 Academic Advising Center that they are not
on track for the academic program of their
choice. They should seek advisement for alter-
native programs for which their grade point
averages and courses might qualify them.
A student may not initiate a registration
while in the "change" classification.


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 placed in the LS "change" designation. Such
students will be given one semester to find
acceptance into a major program. In exceptional
cases, the director of advising 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.
Policies on academic standing, probation
and suspension are based on the possibility that
a student can overcome academic difficulty and
make appropriate progress toward a degree.

Regulation of Academic Standards
Regulations for academic probation and sus-
pension enforce the academic standards of the
university and require the maintenance of grade
point averages and reasonable conformance to a
program of study. Any college may specify
additional academic standards and students are
responsible for observing these regulations.
The probation, suspension and exclusion
regulations that apply to undergraduate stu-
dents also apply to postbaccalaureate students.
All actions taken to enforce these regulations
shall be reflected by notations on the student'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
identify unsatisfactory academic performance at
an early date; 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 fewer 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 fewer than 15. It
will be removed when the grade point deficit
has been reduced to zero. Should the grade
point deficit increase to 15 or more, the stu-
dent will be suspended from the university.


ACADEMIC REGULATIONS

Suspension
Academic suspension from the university
denies registration privileges to students who
could not graduate if they continued at their cur-
rent level of academic achievement. Academic
suspensions identify students whose perfor-
mance indicates that they will not fulfill gradua-
tion requirements and encourages students to
leave the university to investigate other alterna-
tives as soon as a high probability of failure 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 will be canceled. Students who
are suspended cannot register for a future
term until they have filed an application for
readmission by the 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.

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.







ACADEMIC PROGRESS REGULATIONS


Upper division colleges may choose not to
consider students for admission to and may
deny continuation in a degree program if they
fail to maintain reasonable academic progress,
as specified by the college or department.




The following requirements apply to under-
graduate degrees.
Application for Degree: Students must file an
application for degree with the Office of the
University Registrar by the 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 commencement.
Catalog Year: Catalog year determines the set of
academic requirements (general education and
the major) which must be fulfilled for gradua-
tion. Students graduate under the catalog in
effect at the time of their initial undergraduate
enrollment as a degree-seeking student at UF, a
Florida public community college or other
Florida state institution, provided they maintain
continuous enrollment (registration for and com-
pletion of at least one course for one term in an
academic year). Students who do not maintain
continuous enrollment will be assigned the cata-
log 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
alternative catalog year.
The university will make every reasonable
effort to honor the curriculum requirements
appropriate to each student's catalog year.
However, courses and programs will sometimes
be discontinued and requirements may change
as a result of curricular review or actions by
accrediting associations and other agencies.
College Dean's Certification: The dean certifies
that all requirements have been completed and
that the student is recommended by the faculty.
College Level Academic Skills Test: Students seek-
ing a degree must satisfactorily complete the
College Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST).
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). Minors are
awarded only in conjunction with the receipt of
a baccalaureate degree.
Diploma Replacement Fee: Each diploma ordered
subsequent to a student's initial degree applica-
tion will result in assessment of a $5 diploma
replacement charge.
Dual Undergraduate Degrees and Dual Majors:
Colleges, at their discretion, may permit stu-
dents to pursue dual degrees or dual majors. A
student completing major and college require-
ments in two different colleges will receive two
degrees. The transcript will list each degree with
the appropriate majors. A student completing
major and college requirements in one college
and major requirements only in another college,
will receive a degree from the first college only.
The transcript will list the degree and the major
from each college. A student completing two
majors that have the same degree, i.e., Bachelor
of Arts or Bachelor of Science, will receive a sin-
gle degree. The transcript will list the degree
and the two majors.
Extension Work Restrictions: Extension work
includes both extension classes and correspon-
dence 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 the dean of the college for fur-
ther information.
Foreign Language Requirement: Students seeking a
degree must satisfy the university and depart-
ment or college (if any) foreign language require-
ments. Student must complete two sequential
courses of a foreign language in secondary
school, 8-10 semester hours at the postsecondary
level, or document an equivalent level of profi-
ciency. In addition, if required, they must fulfill
the requirements of their major and/or college.


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
Gordon Rule (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 Student
Conduct Violation: No degree will be conferred if
a charge of academic dishonesty or conduct vio-
lation is pending if the penalty could be suspen-
sion, expulsion, failing grade or any combina-
tion of the above, until 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. In
addition, students who have taken an advanced
level course may not receive credit for comple-
tion 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% of the credit hours applied
toward a degree must be earned while in
residence at the University of Florida.
Students are required to complete the last 30
credits toward the baccalaureate degree in
residence at the college from which they 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.
Transcript Fee: Upon written request, the uni-
versity will provide academic transcripts for
any student who has attended the University of
Florida. The charge for each transcript is $5. To
reflect a complete academic record for under-
graduate, graduate and professional students,
the university will issue only complete tran-
scripts..










Lower Division

Administered by the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences
100 Academic Advising Center

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is
the gateway college for entering freshmen and
other students with fewer than 60 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. Colleges
may early affiliate freshmen and sophomore
students. Such students will carry college and
major designations. However, affiliated stu-
dents must ratify their admission status at the
60-hour benchmark. Each college specifies
admissions requirements in its section of the
catalog. MAPP will allow for automatic admis-
sion of qualified students at the 60-hour bench-
mark.

Academic Advisement
The advising process begins early in the aca-
demic career of all lower division students.
Freshmen entering in summer b or fall of each
year have an opportunity to participate in
Preview. Preview is an orientation program
designed for students to learn about the
University of Florida and advance register for
the next academic term. Notices concerning
Preview are mailed in the late spring to those
students who have been admitted to the univer-
sity. Students entering Preview will have an
opportunity to meet with an adviser to discuss
major and career options, as well as appropriate
courses for the first semester.
Students unable to attend Preview must
receive academic advisement during regular
orientation, which is offered the week prior to
the beginning of the semester. Students entering
college in the spring and summer a semesters
are similarly required to attend orientation as
part of the registration period prior to the begin-
ning of classes.
In the latter part of each semester, students
register for their next term. Again, academic
advisers are available to discuss course selec-
tion. Students must accept responsibility for ful-
filing curriculum requirements stated in this cat-
alog. Each term students should meet with an
adviser to discuss their progression toward
admission into an upper division college.
Students who are making successful progress
are not required to see an adviser when register-
ing. However, students are often required to
meet with an adviser if they are under proba-
tion, uncertain about their choice of major, or if


they are not maintaining the minimum require-
ments necessary for their intended major.
Students can discuss major requirements, acade-
mic status or any academic issue with an
adviser in 100 Academic Advising Center.

College Level Academic Skills Test
All students who attain junior standing (60
semester hours) are required to have taken the
College Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST) or
have satisfied the appropriate CLAST waiver. A
student may take CLAST at any time after com-
pletion of 18 credit hours. The awarding of A.A.
certificates and registration after earning 60
hours are contingent upon passing all subtests
of CLAST.

Communication and
Computation Skills (Gordon Rule)
Students must complete (with grades of C or
higher) 12 hours in designated courses that
involve substantial writing. Courses fulfilling
the communication requirement may also count
for general education (if approved for one or
more general education category). CLEP credit
may not be used to satisfy the writing require-
ment.
In addition, each student must complete
with grades of C or higher, six credits of course
work in mathematics, at or above the level of
college algebra, OR three credits in mathematics
and an additional three credits in statistics, com-
puter science or the logic courses PHI 2100 or
PHI 3130. Acceptable mathematics course pre-
fixes include :MAA, MAC, MAD, MAP, MAS,
MGF, MHF or MTG.
The following course may NOT be used to
satisfy the mathematical sciences or computa-
tion requirement: CGS 3063.
The courses acceptable for the requirement
are identical to those authorized for the general
education mathematical sciences requirement.
Any student satisfying College Level Examina-
tion Program (CLEP) requirements in mathe-
matics 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, music theory and psy-
chology count toward Gordon Rule communi-
cation requirements. 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:
University Foundations
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.
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 & engi-
neering, philosophy, aerospace engineering and
mechanics & engineering science.
Humanities (H)
By exploring the nature of history, culture,
literature and the arts 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. 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 history, religion, philosophy, anthro-
pology, architecture, Germanic & Slavic lan-
guages & literatures, art, English, classics,
music, and romance languages and literatures.
Social and Behavioral Sciences (S)
In this area, students explore human behav-
ior in its social context, analyze the structure of
societies, cultures and institutions, and assess
the processes by which individuals and groups
allocate 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.
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 student
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.







LOWER DIVISION


International Studies and Diversity Focus (I)
The general education program at UF recog-
nizes that beyond the basic areas of academic
study there are other contexts of knowing: e.g.,
language, gender, culture, race, ethnicity and
class. The international studies and diversity
requirement seeks to make students aware that
the United States is part of a world community;
to provide them with the means to understand
the significance of world events; and to help
them develop an appreciation for diversity
through the study of nations, gender, culture,
race, ethnicity and class.
In order to develop an appreciation of a per-
spective different from one's own, students take
six credits of course work that has an interna-
tional and/or diversity focus. Such courses
might focus on (1) nations or cultures outside of
the United States, and/or on (2) issues of diver-
sity such as race, gender, ethnicity, culture, lan-
guage or class within the United States or other
nations. These courses must be selected from
courses that simultaneously fulfill the general
education area requirement in social and behav-
ioral sciences (S), humanities (H), or physical or
biological sciences (P/B).
The course offerings section of the
Schedule of Courses lists specific courses for
each category, designated by code in the col-
umn headed "G.E."
STUDENTS WHO ENTERED THE STATE
UNIVERSITY SYSTEM PRIOR TO SUMMER
B 1992:
Please refer to the catalog from your
matriculation year (catalog year includes the
term of initial undergraduate enrollment at
UF, a Florida community college or other state
institution) or to the Schedule of Courses for
the appropriate general education require-
ment.

Areas and Credit Requirements
For General Education


Areas:
University Foundations
Composition (C)
Mathematical Sciences (M)
Humanities (H)


Social and Behavioral Sciences (S) 9
Physical (P) and Biological (B) Sciences 9
TOTAL CREDIT REQUIREMENTS: 36
* Six of the 36 hours must have an international
or diversity focus, (I).
** Students may vary the hours in humanities,
social and behavioral sciences, and physical
and biological sciences: no fewer than six
hours and no more than 12 hours in each cat-
egory with a total of 27 hours among the
three categories.


Please also 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, environmen-
tal 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 identi-
fied at the back of the catalog under departmen-
tal course listings. Courses that have been
approved for general education have received a
letter designation after the course entry, which
corresponds to the first letter of the category.
For example: AMH 2010, United States to 1877,
fulfills 3 credits in the humanities (H) category.
(5) Advanced Placement (AP) and Inter-
national Baccalaureate (IB) credit can be applied
toward completion of the general education
requirements.
(6) CLEP credit may not be used to satisfy
general education requirements.

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; these standards may also
include specific general education courses.

Associate of Arts Certificate
Although not required, students may receive
an A.A. certificate. The Associate of Arts must
be awarded prior to the bachelor's degree. The
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences awards the
A.A. certificate for the university.
The Associate of Arts certificate will be
awarded upon satisfactory completion of:
* 60 credits (At least 36 of the credits must
have been completed at UF.)
General education requirements
An overall C average
College Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST)
or appropriate CLAST waiver
Required courses in communication and
computation skills (Gordon Rule)


Application forms for the A.A. certificate are
available from and should be returned to the
Office of the University Registrar.

General Academic Regulations
Normal Loads: The normal course load is 12-
16 credit hours. First-semester freshmen may
wish to consider 12 hours of academic courses.
Loads above 17 hours must be approved by the
Director of Advising, Academic Advising
Center.
Adding/Dropping/Withdrawing: Courses may
be dropped or added during the drop/add
period without penalty. After drop/add, a
course may be dropped up to the date estab-
lished in the university calendar. A grade of W
will appear on the transcript.
All drops after the drop/add period must be
completed by the deadline and are subject to the
following restrictions:
* No more than two (2) drops will be permit-
ted to students while classified as freshmen
or sophomores. Students who can document
extenuating circumstances may petition for
an additional drop.
Final approval to drop a course must be
obtained from the Academic Advising
Center, 100 AAC, or the student's college.
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 does not constitute
a drop; the only procedure for dropping a class
is through TeleGator or with an approved
form from the Academic Advising Center.
Withdrawing from the University: Students
dropping their entire course load must contact
the Office for Student Services in 202 Peabody
Hall, as dropping the entire load constitutes
withdrawal from the university. Withdrawal is
subject to the deadlines.
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 a petition is available in 222 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 100 Academic Advising Center. In order
for special permission to be granted, the student
must be in good academic standing and may
not apply more than six semester hours of corre-
spondence credit toward a university degree.
Class Attendance: The university recognizes
the right of the individual professor to make
attendance mandatory. After due warning, pro-
fessors may suspend students with failing
grades for excessive absences.

LOWER DIVISION


Drops for Non-Attendance: In some "high
demand" courses a student may be dropped by
the instructor if the student does not attend at
least one of the first two class meetings. Note:
Students must not assume that they are
dropped automatically if they fail to attend the
first two days of classes.
CLEP, AP and IB Credit: Students who
obtain credit via CLEP, Advanced Placement or
International Baccalaureate 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 stu-
dents' 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 recognizes outstanding
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, exclu-
sive 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 benefi-
cial.
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.
In addition to serving as a central source of
information on all matters relating to prelaw
advisement, the Office of Health and Legal
Professions Advising in 100 AAC acts as a
clearinghouse for information and
LSAT/LSDAS materials relating to prelaw
preparation and application procedures. The
office serves as a central office for collecting and
forwarding letters of evaluation to law schools.
Files for letters of evaluation should be set up in
the office early in the year in which applications.
to law school will be sent (usually the spring
term of the junior year).

Premedical, Predental and Preoptometry
Programs
The university allows a premedical, preden-
tal or preoptometry student to major in any pro-
gram offered by any department or college
within the university.
In order to inform themselves fully of
requirements, procedures and other factors
relating to preprofession preparation, students
should attend workshops offered through the


Office of Health and Legal Professions
Advising, 100 AAC.
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 professional schools.
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 3211-3211L or
CHM 3216 and 3216L.
At least eight semester credits in biology
(usually BSC 2010-2010L and BSC 2011-
2011L).
A complete physics sequence (terminat-
ing with PHY 3054 and 3056L or PHY
3041).
One year of college mathematics with
one term of analytic geometry and calcu-
lus (MAC 3311) and at least one semester
of statistics (STA 3023) are recom-
mended.
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 pro-
grams of the National Preprofessional Honor
Society (Alpha Epsilon Delta), the Minority
Preprofessional Association (MPA) and the
Preprofessional 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.


Timetable For Preprofessional Students
1st Year: Chemistry, calculus, general educa-
tion requirements and attend a health
professions workshop.
2nd Year: Core biology, organic chemistry and
general education requirements.
3rd Year: Physics, requirements for the major
and additional biology or chemistry
courses.
January: Contact Office of Health and
Legal Professions Advising to begin
application procedures.
February: Begin studying for MCAT/
DAT, and begin collecting letters of
evaluation with the Office of Health
and Legal Professions Advising.
April: Take MCAT/DAT.
4th Year: Finish major requirements and addi-
tional preprofessional classes.
Fall and spring: Interview with pro-
fessional schools. Maintain good GPA
and course loads.
COURSE LOADS: In your first term at the uni-
versity, 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 recom-
mended for superior students willing to do
extra work. After your first term, maintain
approximately a 15-hour load including two-or-
three science/math courses each term. No more
than two laboratory courses are recommended
in any one term.

Honors Program
This is an invitational program for students
who have shown potential for superior academic
performance. After admission to the university,
invitations are sent to all students who have
scored 1350 (test taken after March 1995) or
above on the Scholastic Aptitude Test or 30 com-
posite 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 special honors classes and housing in
an honors dormitory. To remain in the program,
students must enroll in at least one honors
course each semester in the first two years and
maintain an overall grade point average of 3.0.
Students who do not qualify may apply for
admission into the program in the spring of
their first year after demonstrating their acade-
mic capabilities during the fall semester. Honors
requirements are not in addition to general edu-
cation requirements, but may be used to satisfy
these requirements. The small sizes of the
classes and the high quality of the students
make possible more thorough inquiry into
course materials and more independent work.
Students may enhance their skills through
extensive reading, writing of research papers

Fisher School
of Accounting
Accounting has been one of the basic acade-
mic programs at the University of Florida for
more than 60 years.- In 1977, the School of
Accounting was established as a separate school
within the College of Business Administration
by the Board of Regents and was endowed in
1985 through the generosity of alumnus
Frederick E. Fisher. The Fisher School's primary
mission is to provide a professional program
within which students develop the knowledge,
learning capabilities, professionalism, interper-
sonal skills and adaptability necessary to
assume leadership roles in a changing profes-
sional and business environment. An academi-
cally rich and culturally diverse student popula-
tion is a necessary prerequisite towards fulfill-
ing the school's mission. As evidence of the
Fisher School's success in achieving its goals,
the school's degree programs are consistently
ranked in the top ten in the nation by various
academic and professional surveys. Most
recently (1995) the graduate and undergraduate
programs were ranked sixth and tenth respec-
tively by the Public Accounting Report.

Programs
All Fisher School of Accounting programs
are fully accredited by the American Assembly
of Collegiate Schools of Business (the AACSB).
The school was one of the first in the country to
meet the accreditation requirements for all of its
accounting programs under the new AACSB
standards. UF's undergraduate and graduate
programs in accounting and business were re-
accredited by the American Assembly of
Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) at their
annual meeting April 1991.
The school offers the Bachelor of Science in
Accounting (B.S.Ac.) and Master of Accounting
(M.Acc.) and coordinates the accounting con-
centration for the Ph.D. in business administra-
tion. A program of studies leading to the joint
awarding of the Juris Doctorate and M.Acc.
degrees (JD/M.Acc.) is also offered by the
Fisher School of Accounting and the College of
Law.
The recommended curriculum to prepare for
a professional career in accounting is the 3/2
five-year program with a joint awarding of the
Bachelor of Science in Accounting and the
Master of Accounting upon satisfactory comple-
tion of the 152-hour program. The recom-
mended entry point into the 3/2 program is the
beginning of the senior year. Interested students
are encouraged to take the GMAT in their junior
year.
The 3/2 program allows the student to con-
centrate in an accounting specialty; it also pro-
vides knowledge of both the basic accounting
framework and the underlying business and
related disciplines. Details concerning the 3/2
program, including the specialization areas of


financial/auditing, systems and tax, are
included in the Graduate Catalog, which can be
obtained by writing the Office of Admissions,
Box 114000, University of Florida, Gainesville,
FL 32611-4000. Additional information also can
be obtained by contacting the Fisher School of
Accounting, Box 117166, University of Florida,
Gainesville, FL 32611-7166.
Students who choose to complete the four-
year undergraduate program will receive the
Bachelor of Science in Accounting degree. These
graduates will have the requisite accounting,
business and general education to pursue a vari-
ety of career opportunities in accounting and
business and to apply to graduate and profes-
sional degree programs in accounting, business
or law. Students wishing to specialize in profes-
sional accounting should plan to complete the
3/2 program.
Prospective students are cautioned to
become familiar with the five-year post-sec-
ondary education requirement to sit for the
Certified Public Accountants Examination in the
state of Florida. Information may be obtained
by contacting the Florida Board of Accountancy,
2610 NW 43rd Street, Suite 1A, Gainesville, FL
32606.


Faculty
The Fisher School of Accounting has 21 faculty
members, and they have earned Ph.D. degrees
from the nation's leading universities such as
Chicago, Illinois, Michigan and Texas. The fac-
ulty is committed to excellence in teaching,
research and service. In addition to publishing
the school's own research journal, the faculty
actively contribute to the accounting profession
by maintaining editorial positions for major
accounting journals, participating in profes-
sional organizations at the national and state
level and providing services to major corpora-
tions and public accounting firms.

Student Organizations
Beta Alpha Psi
This honorary accounting fraternity has 115
chapters nationwide. The Upsilon Chapter of
the University of Florida was the 18th chapter to
be founded (in 1938) and is recognized as one of
the best chapters in the country.
An active professional program is conducted
by Beta Alpha Psi each year, including guest
speakers, panel discussions, field trips and other
activities designed to promote professional
awareness. Beta Alpha Psi co-sponsors the
Graduate Accounting Conference which annu-
ally attracts more than 100 accounting practi-
tioners and also co-sponsors the school's spring
banquet. Members of Beta Alpha Psi provide
services to the school through the tutoring pro-
gram and through peer counseling. Service to
the external community is provided in the form
of the VITA (voluntary income tax assistant)
program.


Beta Alpha Psi accepts applications for
memberships every semester. Membership
requirements include high ethical standards and
a minimum grade point average. Scholastic
requirements in Beta Alpha Psi include:

Undergraduate: Completion of at least 12 hours
of upper division (i.e., 3000 level or above)
accounting courses at the University of Florida
with a cumulative 3.2 average in these courses;
and
A 3.0 cumulative average for all work com-
pleted in upper division courses at the
University of Florida.

Graduate: For purposes of Beta Alpha Psi mem-
bership, a graduate student is defined as a stu-
dent who has completed at least one 5000-level
or higher accounting course.
A 3.1 cumulative average in accounting
courses (i.e., 3000 level or above) completed at
the University of Florida; and
A 3.0 cumulative average for all work com-
pleted in upper division courses at the
University of Florida.

Fisher School of Accounting Council
The Fisher School of Accounting Council
(FSOAC) is part of the campus-wide Board of
College Councils. Student Government funds
the FSOAC via the Board of College Councils
through the student activity fees. The council
serves as a liaison between the accounting stu-
dents and faculty. At the beginning of the fall
and spring semesters, each upper-division
accounting class selects a student to represent
them at FSOAC meetings and functions. All
students accepted to the Fisher School of
Accounting are eligible to be non-voting mem-
bers of the Council, and after attendance at
three consecutive meetings, are eligible for vot-
ing status. Students on the council can partici-
pate on a number of committees of their inter-
est. Officers of the FSOAC are elected by the
voting members of the council at the end of each
semester and serve the following semester.
,The council participates in many activities
throughout the year including the school's ori-
entation program; Career Expo; Footnotes
(weekly announcements to accounting classes);
and publication of The Balance Sheet (the Fisher
School of Accounting newsletter). The council
is also involved with UF Homecoming and
Gator Expo in the fall, and the Spring Awards
Banquet. Finally, the council presents profes-
sional programs to accounting students, often in
cooperation with Beta Alpha Psi or the Florida
Accounting Association. These programs
expose students to accounting in public, private,
industrial and governmental practices.

COLLEGES


opment and to increase social interaction among
accounting students. Membership is open to all
students enrolled in the Fisher School of
Accounting and to prospective accounting
majors currently enrolled in ACG 2021.
Membership application forms are available in
the Fisher School of Accounting office and may
be submitted at any time. Dues are collected
each semester and cover the cost of most func-
tions.
FAA functions are planned by an executive
committee consisting of the president, vice-pres-
ident, treasurer, secretary and social coordina-
tor. Elections are held at the beginning of each
semester.
Activities of the FAA involve both social
events and professional programs. The FAA
sponsors after-class social gatherings and peri-
odic student/faculty events such as picnics and
semi-formal parties.

Student Senate
The Fisher School of Accounting elects one
senator to the Student Senate. The Student
Senate meets weekly to handle various student
concerns and business matters, including the
distribution of student activity fees to campus
organizations. The FSOA senator has many
opportunities to be involved in other student
government activities.
Center for Accounting Research and
Professional Education
The Center for Accounting Research and
Professional Education provides an umbrella for
both research and professional education activi-
ties of the Fisher School. The research compo-
nent of the center aims to encourage and facili-
tate theoretical and applied research by account-
ing faculty and students. The center publishes
the Journal of Accounting Literature, sponsors
research seminars and a biannual conference,
produces a working paper series, and serves as
a research information source for faculty and
students. The professional education compo-
nent of the center aims to serve the business and
professional communities and to heighten the
school's visibility in those communities through
quality professional education offerings. On
occasion, a CPA review program is offered
through the center, but the primary emphasis is
on one- and two-day programs that address
issues of national interest.

Admission to the School

Academic Advising
The assistant director and undergraduate
advisers are available for counseling on an
appointment basis at the school's administrative
office (BUS 267). All students are advised to
seek guidance well in advance of registration
periods. During advanced registration, peer
counseling sponsored by Beta Alpha Psi will be
available to help students choose a tentative


schedule. Their function is to offer informal
advice and help; only the Fisher School has the
authority to waive a school requirement.

Submitting an Undergraduate Application
The Fisher School of Accounting applies the
same admission standards to students who are
currently enrolled at the University of Florida
(natives) and those seeking entry to the Fisher
School of Accounting from another academic
institution (transfers).
Native students who have selected account-
ing as their MAPP (Monitoring Academic
Progress Policy) major upon entering the
University of Florida will automatically have an
application forwarded to the Fisher School of
Accounting at the 60-hour benchmark. No fur-
ther action need be taken by the student.
All other native students apply to the Fisher
School by filling out an Application to Change
Undergraduate Classification, which is available
in the Registrar's Office.
Transfer students apply through the univer-
sity's Office of Admissions.
Undergraduate Applicant Pool
The Fisher School of Accounting uses an
applicant pool for undergraduate admissions.
All applications that meet the minimum stan-
dards are placed into a pool from which the
most qualified are selected each term for admis-
sion. Because of this process, most admission
decisions are not made until well after the appli-
cation deadline has passed.
Because of limited capacity, it is unlikely
that all students who meet the minimum stan-
dards for inclusion into the applicant pool will
be admitted. A Fisher School of Accounting fac-
ulty committee is responsible for admission
decisions, which are not based solely on GPA.
Many other factors, such as performance in any
accounting courses completed prior to applica-
tion and the overall quality of the student's aca-
demic records, are considered in selecting stu-
dents for admission into the Fisher School.
Minimum Standards for Entry
The minimum standards that must be met
before a student will be considered for admis-
sion into the Fisher School are the following:
1. Completion of, or in the process of complet-
ing, at least 60 semester hours of course
work at an accredited institution;
2. The Fisher School of Accounting has 18
semester hours of preprofessional course
work. Although a student will be consid-
ered for admission with the 12 preprofes-
sional credit hours (described below) com-
pleted, all preprofessional courses are pre-
requisites for upper-division courses. Not
having all 18 credit hours completed upon
admission will delay progress towards grad-
uation.
The following preprofessional courses must
be completed at the time of application:


ACG 2021 Introduction to Financial Accounting,
or its equivalent,
* A minimum grade of "B" must be achieved in
this course.
* If a series of courses is taken which upon com-
pletion is equivalent to ACG 2021, then a min-
imum grade of "B" must be achieved in each
course.
MAC 3233 Survey of Calculus 1, or its equiva-
lent.
* CLEP credit is not accepted as meeting the cal-
culus requirement.
* Four credits for the advanced placement
examination in calculus is considered to sat-
isfy the MAC 3233 requirement.
* For students who have taken calculus at state
institutions in Florida, the MAC 3233 course
requirement may be met by satisfactory com-
pletion of MAC 1311, 2311, 3311 or 2233.
AND
Two of the following four preprofessional
courses may be in process at the time of applica-
tion, but the two courses must be completed
successfully prior to enrollment in the Fisher
School.
* ECO 2013 Principles of Macroeconomics, or its
equivalent.
* ECO 2023 Principles of Microeconomics, or its
equivalent.
* CGS 3531 Introduction to Computer Software,
or its equivalent.
STA 3021 Introduction to Statistics 1, or its
equivalent.
3. A grade point average that meets minimum
standards. The current minimum that is
required for consideration is a 2.8 cumula-
tive GPA, calculated on all attempts of all
college-level course work. Where a student
has attended the University of Florida and
another institution, the GPA calculation will
be based only on the University of Florida
course work.
4. In the case of a transfer student from inside
the state of Florida, an Associate of Arts
degree (AA) is required prior to enrollment
in the Fisher School of Accounting.
5. Satisfactory completion of the College Level
Academic Skills Tests (CLAST).

Undergraduate (B.S.Ac.) Admissions Policies
Meeting the above minimum standards is
required for admission to the applicant pool; it
does not guarantee admission into the Fisher
School. Admission is selective and is always
subject to enrollment capacity. Priority in
admission will be given to those applicants
whose record indicates the great likelihood for
success in the program.
Admission requirements into the Fisher
School are always subject to change. Please
check the Fisher School office (BUS 267) for the
current standards.
Admission to the University of Florida does
not guarantee admission to the Fisher School of







ACCOUNTING


Accounting. If a transfer student declares
accounting as his/her major but is accepted
under the 3LS classification, the student has not
been accepted to the Fisher School of
Accounting. Subsequent admission to the
school will be based on the admission stan-
dards described above, with the GPA calcu-
lated on the basis of University of Florida
grades only.
Admission to the Fisher School of
Accounting does not constitute admission to the
3/2 program. This requires a separate applica-
tion to the Graduate School.
The eligibility standards for admission to
lower division UF students apply equally to
transfer students who have received their AA
degree from a Florida public community college
and who have passed all parts of CLAST.
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 and accounting
courses beyond the introductory level. A max-
imum of four semester credits may be allowed
for courses taken during the first two years
which are available only as third and fourth-
year professional courses in the College of
Business Administration at the University of
Florida. Any credit granted for such work will
be granted only in the form of undistributed
elective credit. In no case may such courses be
in accounting. In the case where a student
wishes to waive an upper-division core course
and substitute a community college course,
waivers may be granted on an individual basis,
but the student will be required to take another
course in the area being waived. The substitute
course will be specified by the department chair
of the area.
The same standard for admission as those
described above apply equally to transfer stu-
dents from four-year college 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 institution 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 account-
ing students attending other four-year institu-
tions 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 entering the University of Florida.
The Office of the University Registrar deter-
mines the transferability of credit earned by
course work at other institutions. The credits


for courses that are designated as vocational or
technical courses, that were repeats of previous
courses taken, or that were from non-accredited
institutions will not be transferred for degree
credit. In the case of course work taken at com-
munity and junior colleges, a maximum of 64
semester hours may be transferred. More than
64 semester hours could be transferred in the
case of students entering from other accredited
universities.

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 office and should complete them
early in the spring term of their fourth year.


Fisher School Requirements

Student Academic Support System (SASS)
It is the students' responsibility to be aware
of their academic requirements. They will be
mailed a Student Academic Support System
(SASS) audit each semester that lists all of the
requirements for their particular program and
indicates whether or not the student has met
each requirement. Students should pay close
attention to these audits and should, at a mini-
mum, seek assistance if they have any questions
about their SASS audit from the appropriate
adviser in a term prior to the semester in which
they plan to graduate. Failure to do so may
delay graduation.

Submitting a Course Substitution
Students transferring into the Fisher School
from other institutions will need to complete
substitution forms for all of their preprofes-
sional or degree requirements. These forms
may be obtained from the Fisher School of
Accounting office (BUS 267) and should be com-
pleted as soon as the student is on campus.
Failure to do so may result in the student
being dropped from a subsequent course. If
the student has been admitted to the Fisher
School, their substitution forms will be returned
to the school's office and kept in the student's
folder. The substitution process is as follows:
* Complete the blue course substitution form
and attach it to a photocopy of the course
description from the college where the course
was taken. Often a course syllabus will assist
in the approval process.
The student must then take the completed
forms to the UF department which offers the
equivalent course for its approval.
The student must then return the signed
forms to the Fisher School for its approval.
The substitution is not approved until signed
by the Fisher School.


Accounting and Business Core Courses Taken
at Other Institutions
Once a student has been admitted into the
Fisher School of Accounting, the student may
not take any additional accounting or business
core course work at any other institution.
Students who have taken upper division
courses at accredited universities prior to enter-
ing the Fisher School should submit upper divi-
sion course substitution forms to the school.
Substitutions for required upper division
courses require approval of the school and of
the UF department offering the required course.
Accounting course work taken at other insti-
tutions generally is not substitutable for the
upper division accounting courses required for
the B.S.Ac. degree.

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 electives.
Courses taken to satisfy preparatory course or
degree requirements for the M.Acc. program
may not be taken on an S-U basis.

Unsatisfactory Performance
Students who do not make satisfactory acad-
emic progress will be dropped from the account-
ing program. In addition to the university regu-
lations concerning unsatisfactory performance,
the school will exclude students from further
registration for each of the following reasons:
1. The student earns two grades below C in
accounting courses numbered above 3000
regardless of whether the student was in the
Fisher School of Accounting at the time they
earned those grades.
2. The student's accounting grade point aver-
age, calculated on all attempts of all
required accounting courses numbered 3000
and above falls below 2.0 and remains there
after one term of enrollment.
3. The student's cumulative grade point aver-
age falls below 2.0 and then remains there
after one subsequent term of enrollment.
4. The student withdraws from the university
three times after admission into the Fisher
School of Accounting.
5. The student fails to register for a required
upper-division accounting course for two
consecutive semesters of enrollment.
For purposes of all of the above policies, the
following rules apply to the definition of a term:
Any term for which a student registers for
courses at the University of Florida counts as
a term of enrollment, even if the student
subsequently withdraws from the term (after
the drop/add period).
Summer registration is viewed as registra-
tion for one term (e.g., whether a student
registers for Summer A alone, or registers
for Summer A and B and C, the student is
considered to have registered for one term).








COLLEGES


Students not in the Fisher School of
Accounting who register for upper-division
accounting courses must comply with both
items one and two above or they will be
denied further registration in upper-division
accounting courses.
Undergraduate Drop Policies
While in junior and senior status, students
may drop a maximum of two (2), and only two,
courses with the understanding that:
The two-drop policy applies to all drops
taken at the University of Florida in the junior
and senior years regardless of whether the stu-
dent was in the Fisher School of Accounting at
the time of the drop.
The policy is intended to cover legitimate
causes. They are not free drops and students
should exercise judgment in using the drop
allowance.
All drops become part of the student's offi-
cial record with the school and will be recorded
on the student's official transcript ("W").
Withdrawal in any term (fall, spring or sum-
mer) is counted as one drop for the purpose of
applying the two- drop policy.
All other drop requests must be acted upon
the assistant director as advised by the
Professional Program Committee. The commit-
tee will be very strict in considering such
requests and will not approve drops for reasons
that are not beyond the student's control.
This policy applies to drop requests made
after the drop/add period at the beginning of
each semester and prior to the period governed
by the University Senate Committee on Student
Petitions.

Drop Request Prior to the Deadline
*Students pick up a pink drop form and a
bubble sheet from the Fisher School.
The pink drop form must be completed and
signed by the course instructor.
The department offering the course must ini-
tial or stamp the completed bubble sheet.
Return the forms to the Fisher School for
approval and signature.
The course will not be officially dropped
until the student has had the bubble sheet
processed at Criser Hall before the drop
deadline.

Drop Request After the Deadline
After the last day to drop by college petition
(as published each semester in the Schedule of
Courses), all petitions must be presented to the
University Senate Committee on Student
Petitions. Such petitions should be presented to
the Office of the University Registrar in 222
Criser Hall for referral to that committee.

Correspondence Courses and Registration at
Other Institutions
Courses may not be taken by correspon-
dence.
Required courses (in preprofessional,


accounting and supporting fields) may not be
taken outside of the University of Florida. No
exceptions to this policy are permitted.
Elective and general education courses may
be taken outside of the University of Florida
only if:
SThe student will have more than 30 hours
left to graduate from the Fisher School upon
completion of such courses; and

Graduation Requirements

Application for Graduation
Each student should plan to see an adviser
in the semester prior to the term of planned
graduation to confirm that all degree require-
ments will be met pending the successful com-
pletion of the remaining plan of study.
Graduation checks will not be done during the
week of drop/add.
It is the student's responsibility to apply for
graduation at Criser Hall. The deadline for sub-
mitting applications is published in the
Schedule of Courses. Failure to submit a timely
application may prevent graduation.

Requirements for Degree Certification
To graduate with a B.S.Ac. degree, a student
must have satisfactorily completed 120 semester
hours of the prescribed course work, and
* The student's last 30 hours of course work
must have been completed in residence at the
Fisher School of Accounting with an AC clas-
sification.
The student must have completed a mini-
mum of 16 semester credit hours of upper-
division accounting courses at the Fisher
School of Accounting.
The waiving of any required course does not
reduce the hours required for graduation.
Graduation credits will not be given for
repeated courses.
In addition, the degree candidate must have
* a minimum of 2.0 GPA on all UF course
work.
a minimum 2.0 GPA on all upper-division UF
course work (all courses taken in excess of 64
hours).
a minimum 2.0 GPA on all attempts of all
required accounting courses numbered 3000
and above.
For purposes of computing the GPAs
referred to above, the following apply:
If a course is repeated after an initial grade of
"C" or better was earned in the course (e.g.,
to achieve the "B" requirement for ACG
2021), the repeat grade and hours will not be
computed in the University of Florida grade
point average.
Except for the above, all attempts of all
courses are included in the computation.
This means that a repeated course is included
as many times as grades for it are recorded.


Honors
Outstanding performance of graduating
seniors is recognized by the designation of hon-
ors, high honors and highest 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. Only course work taken at the
University of Florida will be included in those
computations.
* Upper division course work shall include all
course work in excess of 60 semester hours.
* Major course work shall include the five
required undergraduate accounting courses.

To be awarded high honors or highest hon-
ors, the student must submit a thesis to the
Fisher School no later than the deadline. The
thesis must be accompanied by an abstract
form. These are available at the Fisher School of
Accounting.
The thesis requirement may be fulfilled by:
* Registering for and completing ACG 4970
Honors Thesis under the supervision of the
Fisher School of Accounting.

AGRICULTURE


Agricultural and Natural Resources Ethics
and Policy Minor: This minor, offered by the
College of Agriculture and the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences, is available for stu-
dents throughout the university who wish to
either (a) augment their technical education in
the agricultural and resource-related disciplines
with selected liberal arts and science courses
and policy-related courses in agriculture and
natural resources; or (b) augment business,
humanities, journalism or social sciences educa-
tion with selected courses in the College of
Agriculture that pertain to unique agricultural
and natural resources issues and problems.
This minor can serve as additional preparation
for careers in education, business, law or poli-
tics. Students interested in pursuing this minor
should see the undergraduate coordinator in
food and resource economics.
Management and Sales in Agribusiness
Minor This minor is to provide students with
the opportunity to gain a basic understanding
and skill level of sales and management tech-
niques in agribusiness. Specific courses in the
minor must be approved in writing at least one
semester prior to graduation by the student's
academic adviser and the undergraduate coor-
dinator in food and resource economics.
Preprofessional Programs
There are several majors in the College of
Agriculture that have specializations or options
that facilitate the completion of preprofessional
requirements for admission to colleges of
Dentistry, Law, Medicine and Veterinary
Medicine. There are specializations in agricul-
tural operations management, animal sciences,
entomology and nematology, food science and
human nutrition, microbiology and cell science,
and wildlife ecology and conservation that are
designed specifically to prepare students for
admission to programs in medicine, dentistry or
veterinary medicine. Food science and human
nutrition and microbiology and cell science
have early admission programs to the College of
Dentistry. Students preparing for the College of
Law may elect any major in the College of
Agriculture. The specific pre-veterinary medi-
cine requirements are listed in the section on
majors.
Dental Early Admission Program: Through
a cooperative agreement between the College of
Dentistry (COD) and the College of Agriculture
(COA), qualified students may be admitted to
the COD when they first enter college as fresh-
men. The Dental Early Admission Program is
designed to help highly motivated students
complete a bachelor's degree and D.M.D. in a
shorter time period than traditional programs.
Early admission program participants major in
either microbiology and cell science or food sci-
ence and human nutrition's nutritional sciences
specialization. Both majors provide students

Requirements For Admission
Academic Advising
Academic advising within the College of
Agriculture is provided by college faculty. Each
major has an undergraduate coordinator and
undergraduate advisers. Students interested in
majoring in one of the academic programs in the
college should see the undergraduate coordina-
tor or an undergraduate adviser for the major. A
list of undergraduate coordinators and advisers
is available in 2002 McCarty Hall. It is college
policy that each student should discuss his/her
academic plans with a faculty adviser in his/her
major prior to each registration and consult
with their faculty adviser regarding academic
and career counseling matters.
Lower Division Students
Any student classified lower division (fresh-
man or sophomore) at the University of Florida
will be affiliated (provisionally admitted) to the
College of Agriculture whenever they declare a
major within the B.S. degree programs; at that
time, their college classification will change
from LS (Liberal Arts and Sciences) to AG
(Agriculture). These students will maintain
their AG classification as long as they continue
to meet or exceed the progression standards for .
their major. Students who fall below the mini-
mum progression standards for their major will
become a change major and will revert to an LS
classification within the College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences. These students need to meet with
their academic advisers within the College of
Agriculture in order to determine the appropri-
ate plan of course work to get them back on
track for admission to the college.
Upper Division Students
UF Students: After reaching 60 hours, lower
division students who are affiliated with the col-
lege, and who now meet or exceed the 60-hour
progression standards specified for their majors,







COLLEGES


automatically will receive formal admission and
officially will be classified as upper division stu-
dents within the College of Agriculture.
Students who have taken 60 credit hours or
more and have not met the progression stan-
dards for their intended majors should meet
with an adviser to determine the appropriate
steps for admission. Students who are not affili-
ated with the college will be required to make a
formal application for admission.
Graduate Education
The College of Agriculture offers four
advanced degrees: Master of Agriculture,
Master of Science, Master of Agricultural
Management and Resource Development and
Doctor of Philosophy. Students considering
graduate study should consult their advisers to
ensure proper program planning.
Career Planning and Placement
The College of Agriculture has a college
career resource center placement liaison for the
purpose of assisting students in preparing for
interviews and finding appropriate employment.
The college also sponsors an annual Agriculture
and Natural Resources Career Day in February.
Scholarships
The college and its academic units provide
approximately $300,000 annually for student
scholarships. Applications for college scholar-
ships are available in 2002 McCarty Hall from
October 15 to January 10 each year. College
scholarships, along with letters of recommenda-
tion, are due in 2001 McCarty on or before
January 15 or each year. Scholarships are also
available through each academic unit. Contact
the undergraduate coordinator for the major.
IFAS Ambassadors
IFAS Ambassadors are selected through a
competitive process and commit two semesters
to promote awareness of academic programs in
food, agriculture and natural resources among
students in Florida. In addition to supporting
food, agriculture and natural resources, the
ambassadors participate in a program designed
to enhance their leadership ability. As the offi-
cial student representatives of IFAS, the ambas-
sadors work with students, civic groups and the
food, agricultural and natural resource indus-
tries across the state and at national conferences.
Applications for the fall program are accepted
in the previous spring semester.
Gamma Sigma Delta, The Honor Society of
Agriculture
Gamma Sigma Delta is an honor society
dedicated to recognizing academic achieve-
ments and accomplishments of students, faculty
and alumni whose work has contributed to
food, agriculture and natural resources. Its pur-
pose is to promote high achievement and to rec-
ognize individuals who excel. Junior and senior
students who rank in the upper 15 percent of
their class scholastically and show promise of
leadership may be nominated for membership.


The Fraternity of Alpha Zeta
The Fraternity of Alpha Zeta is a professional
service and honorary agricultural society.
Members are selected from among undergradu-
ate and graduate students of high scholarship
on the basis of character, leadership and per-
sonality. The objectives of Alpha Zeta are to
foster high standards of scholarship, character,
leadership and a spirit of fellowship among its
members, and to the further development of
food, agriculture, natural resources and life sci-
ences.

Progression Standards

Transfer Students
To be eligible for admission to the College of
Agriculture, a transfer student from a Florida
public community college must have an
Associate of Arts degree and must satisfy the
minimum admission requirements set forth for
his/her intended major. Com-munity college
students should consult an academic adviser
and the Articulation and Transfer Advisement
Guidebook published by the university to
ensure completion of the courses that will sat-
isfy the admission requirements for their
intended majors within the college. Transfer
students from other universities or non-Florida
public community colleges should complete the
general education and lower division require-
ments listed for their majors.
Transfer students should avoid specialized
lower division courses related to their major.
These courses can be taken to much better
advantage after the student has acquired the
appropriate background in general education,
lower division courses and basic science
courses.
Postbaccalaureate Students
A student who has received a baccalaureate
degree may be admitted, under certain circum-
stances, as a postbaccalaureate student (6AG).
Students desiring postbaccalaureate admission
should meet the admission requirements, listed
in the progression standards for the intended
major. Students may enroll as 6AG to:
Receive a second baccalaureate degree;
Satisfy requirements for teacher certification;


Meet specific requirements for admission to
graduate or professional school.
Admission requirements for postbaccalaure-
ate students are the same as for transfer stu-
dents. Students must declare a major and meet
with a faculty adviser of that major to have a
program of study planned and approved. In
addition, postbaccalaureate students must com-
ply with college and university rules and regu-
lations and meet all deadlines as printed in the
Undergraduate Catalog.

College Regulations and
Requirements

Student Responsibility
Students are expected to assume full
responsibility for registering for the proper
courses, for fulfilling all requirements for the
degree and for completing all courses. Each
semester the student must consult with his or
her undergraduate adviser to plan and get
approval for the courses in which to enroll.
Normal Loads
The suggested average course load in the
College of Agriculture is 15 credit hours during
fall and spring and 12 credit hours during sum-
mer. A student should not register for more
than 17 credit hours unless approved by the aca-
demic adviser and the dean. Students may reg-
ister for fewer than 12 hours, but should be
aware that certain university privileges and
benefits require a minimum enrollment of 12
hours. It is the student's responsibility to verify
the minimum course load for these benefits.
Transfer Credit Policy
Students may transfer a total of 60 credit
hours from community colleges as part of the
hours needed for their UF degree, regardless of
when these hours are earned, but subject to uni-
versity and college degree requirements.
Courses in excess of 60 hours will be recorded
on the student's University of Florida transcript
and may be used to satisfy curriculum require-
ments, but such courses will not reduce the
number of credit hours required to earn a UF
degree.
Satisfactory-Unsatisfactory Grade Option
Undergraduate students in the College of
Agriculture 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 transcript. Students should be
aware that other academic institutions, agencies
and organizations may interpret a grade of U as
a failing grade in their grade point average com-
putation.
Students choosing the S-U Option must be
in good standing and may not be on university


or college academic probation. To elect the S-U
Option, students must obtain approvals from
the instructor and academic unit offering the
course, as well as from their academic adviser
and the dean. 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 an
S-U basis. Courses taken to fulfill general edu-
cation, Gordon Rule or specific required courses
for the major may not be taken S-U.
For fall, spring and summer C terms, the dead-
line for electing the S-U Option is 4:00 p.m.,
Friday, the third week of classes. For summer A
and summer B terms, the deadline is 4:00 p.m.,
Wednesday, the second week of classes. Once
the S-U Option is approved, students may not
revert to a letter grade.
Probation and Suspension
University Probation: When a student has
an overall UF grade point average (GPA) of less
than 2.0, (s)he is placed on probation and has a
deficit record. When a student accumulates fif-
teen (15) deficit points, (s)he is suspended by
the university for one semester. While on uni-
versity suspension, a student may not enroll at
any other institution. After the one semester
suspension, the student may apply for readmis-
sion and, at the end of the semester that (s)he
returns, (s)he must have fewer than fifteen (15)
deficit points or be suspended permanently
from the University of Florida.
College Probation: A student whose grade
point average falls below 2.0 is also placed on
college probation. When that occurs, the stu-
dent will be notified by the assistant dean for
undergraduate academic programs that (s)he is
on probation and must bring his/her University
of Florida grade point average up to 2.0 during
that semester or (s)he must remove at least three
(3) deficit points. As long as a student has a
deficit record, (s)he must continue removing
three deficit points per semester until his/her
overall University of Florida grade point aver-
age is 2.0. Failure to remove three deficit points
per semester will result in college suspension
for one semester. During college suspension, a
student cannot register as a College of
Agriculture student for that semester. With
approval of the student's undergraduate
adviser and the assistant dean, the student may
complete approved courses at another institu-
tion. If a student does enroll at another institu-
tion, those grades will not reduce the deficit
points on his/her UF record. Upon returning to
the University of Florida, a student must
remove a minimum of three deficit points per
semester to continue his/her enrollment.
Drop Policy
Courses may be dropped during the
drop/add period without penalty. Thereafter,
courses may be dropped only by College of
Agriculture petition in accordance with the pub-
lished deadline. Drops requiring College of
Agriculture petitions are subject to the follow-
ing rules:







COLLEGES


* Two unrestricted drops after the university
drop/add period will be permitted for a stu-
dent classified as 1AG and 2AG. Students
classified as 3AG, 4AG, 6AG and OAG are
allowed one unrestricted drop. All drops
must be processed through the dean's office
in the College of Agriculture.
After the college deadline, students must
petition the dean.
Students withdrawing from their full course
load must contact the Office for Student
Services in 202 Peabody Hall.
Withdrawal Policy
If a College of Agriculture student with-
draws from the university a second time, that
student will be placed on college probation. A
third withdrawal will constitute violation of the
probation and the student will not be allowed to
register again as a student in the College of
Agriculture.
Practical Work Experience
By prior arrangement with an individual's
undergraduate adviser, a student may, under
competent supervision, receive credit for practi-
cal work experience relevant to his/her major.
Credit is earned at the rate of one credit per
month of full-time work and may not exceed a
total of three credits in any combination of expe-
riences. A formal written report must be sub-
mitted before a grade (S-U) will be issued.
Academic units offering this option have listed
the course number 4941 in the description of
courses. Guidelines establishing minimum cri-
teria for credit eligibility and performance are
available from the undergraduate coordinator
of the major.

Special Certificates
Environmental Studies: A program for a spe-
cialization (with certificate) in environmental
studies is available in the college. The program
provides course selection to obtain a broad
knowledge of the environment, especially in the
interrelationships between human activities and
environmental quality. Students enrolled in one
of the existing major programs in the college
and this specialization will apply knowledge in
their major discipline to the solution of environ-
mental problems.
The environmental studies specialization
includes environmental courses in three basic
groups: biological sciences, physical sciences
and social sciences. At least one course from
each of these three groups is required. A mini-
mum of 14 semester hours credit is required for
the certificate. A minimum of three hours out-
side the college is also required.
The courses required for this specialization
are determined by the student in consultation
with his/her academic adviser from an
approved list of courses prepared by the depart-
ment, the college and the university. In most
cases, these requirements can be met through a
wise choice of electives.


Computer Sciences: A program for specializa-
tion (with certificate) in computer sciences is
available for those students who wish to
enhance their College of Agriculture degree
program with a coordinated set of courses in
computer sciences. Students enrolled in any
major program in the college may pursue this
certificate program.
To obtain a certificate in computer sciences,
the student must complete a minimum of 13
credits in specific courses offered by the
Department of Computer and Information
Sciences. Each candidate must complete CIS
3020, COP 3530 and CDA 3101. In addition, at
least one of the following courses must be com-
pleted: CEN 3031, COT 4420, COP 4720, CEN
3031 or COP 4620. This sequence will require a
minimum of three semesters beyond the com-
pletion of calculus. A student interested in this
program should consult his/her academic
adviser to determine specific requirements for a
program of study.

Graduation Requirements
At least 120 credits must be earned to receive
a Bachelor of Science degree. In addition, stu-
dents must have at least a 2.0 grade point aver-
age BOTH in upper division and in all credits
attempted at the University of Florida. Finally,
students must complete the general education,
lower division and major requirements in effect
at the time of their initial undergraduate enroll-
ment at UF, a Florida public community college,
or other Florida state institution, provided they
maintain continuous enrollment.
Seniors must file an application for degree in
the Office of the University Registrar early in
the semester in which they expect to graduate.
The official calendar shows the latest date on
which this can be done. Seniors must person-
ally request that a degree audit be conducted by
the dean's office of the College of Agriculture at
the beginning of their senior year.
Residence Requirements
The last 30 semester hours to be applied
toward the degree must be completed in resi-
dence in the College of Agriculture. In special
cases the dean's office can waive this require-
ment. Students may complete six semester hours
by correspondence among the 30 semester cred-
its of residence work required for the baccalaure-
ate degree, but such work must have prior
approval by the undergraduate coordinator for
the major and the college dean for each course
taken. Credit for work by correspondence will
not be accepted by the college unless a student
has an upper division grade point average of 2.0
or higher in all work attempted in residence.
Honors
Dean's List: A student who carries 15 hours per
semester (or 12 in summer) with a grade point
average of 3.3 or better and no grade less than C
in any course will have his/her name placed on
the Dean's List for that semester.


Graduation with Honors: To graduate with
honors, a student must have a University of
Florida upper division grade point average of
3.5 or above. For purposes of honors, these
courses are defined as all courses taken at the
University of Florida after the student has
earned 60 credits.
To graduate with high honors or highest
honors, the grade point average required is 3.75
and 3.85, respectively. In addition, each acade-
mic unit requires an approved research project
or creative work. Students seeking high honors
or highest honors should consult their under-
graduate adviser and the dean's office for spe-
cific requirements. Postbaccalaureate students
are not eligible for honors.

Programs of Study
The specific requirements for each major are
listed below. Courses that should be used to
satisfy general education requirements have
been listed in the appropriate category. In some
cases, the listed courses are not sufficient to
complete the general education requirement
and the student needs to take another course to
complete the requirement. The courses listed
represent the most expedient way for a student
to fulfill his/her graduation requirements; how-
ever, the student may need or elect to satisfy the
requirements with alternative course sequences.
Specifically, students may take the CHM
2040-2041 sequence or an honors chemistry
course in lieu of CHM 2045. For a calculus
requirement, students may elect to take either
MAC 1142, Precalculus, or MAC 1140 and MAC
1114 prior to enrolling in calculus or they may
take a higher level of the calculus listed. The
College of Agriculture requires all students to
complete an oral and a written communication
requirement above the general education
requirement. In majors where an equivalency is
allowed, students should see their advisers for
approved alternative courses. When majors list
specific courses, students must elect from the
courses listed.

Agricultural Education and
Communication
The agricultural education and communica-
tion major prepares students for careers in agri-
cultural education, the Cooperative Extension
Service and agricultural communication. Three
specializations are offered in the department:
teaching, extension and agricultural communi-
cation. Each requires a common core of courses
in technical agriculture and preprofessional
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.
AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION
SPECIALIZATION
The education specialization provides the
student with the basic courses for agricultural







AGRICULTURE


education teacher certification in Florida. In
addition to these courses, a graduate must
apply to the Florida Department of Education
for certification. 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.

Applications for all internships must be sub-
mitted no later than the end of the second week
of the semester immediately prior to internship.
Assignments will be made only to those centers
approved at time of application. Applicants are
NOT guaranteed assignment to their home
county or to a given center. An application con-
stitutes an agreement to accept assignment in
the center where the objectives of the internship
program can best be achieved. Failure to accept
an assignment relieves the department of any
further responsibility to provide internship
experiences and courses for the candidate.

Agricultural and Biological
Engineering
Bachelor of Science in Engineering (Agricultural
and Biological Engineering)
The agricultural and biological engineering
curriculum is offered cooperatively by the col-
leges 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
problems of agricultural production and process-
ing systems and the management and conserva-
tion of agricultural land and water resources.
Since engineering problems in agriculture relate
to biological production and processing of bio-
logical products, training in agricultural and
biological courses is required. Students will
register in the College of Engineering. Refer to
that college for curriculum.

Agricultural Operations
Management
Agricultural operations management is
designed to provide foundations for careers in


AGRICULTURE


technical management. The application of tech-
nology and management to improve agricultural
production, processing, manufacturing, product
support and product education are emphasized.
Fundamental technologies in food engineer-
ing, machinery, power, robotics, irrigation,
electrical power, computer interfacing, manage-
ment, human factors and construction are com-
plemented by courses in agricultural sciences
and business management.
Five specializations of study are available:
production management, manufacturing and
process management, technical sales and prod-
uct support, and biological systems and environ-
mental systems management. Students should
consult a department adviser for guidance.

electives to prepare for specific career objec-
tives. Potential careers for animal sciences
majors include various aspects of livestock pro-
duction (beef cattle, dairy cattle, swine, poultry
and horses), livestock processing and utilization
(meat, milk and eggs, performance and recre-
ation), allied service industries (feed, health
care, genetics, equipment, supplies, marketing,
promotion, finance and education), as well as
preparation for postbaccalaureate education in
graduate school or the College of Veterinary
Medicine. Students should meet with the
undergraduate coordinator in animal sciences to
select the appropriate specialization/option and

tions will be taught by College of Agricul-
ture faculty for human resource develop-
ment students.

Microbiology and Cell Science
The curriculum is designed to develop fun:
damental knowledge of bacteria, plant and anm-
mal cells and viruses. It provides a background
for pursuing graduate work in microbiology,
cell biology or biochemistry as well as other
areas of agricultural sciences. It also provides a
background necessary for work in research or
diagnostic laboratories, both governmental and
industrial. The curriculum also provides a
background for entry into the professions of
denistry, medicine and veterinary medicine.
Honors: To qualify for graduation with
honors, high honors or highest honors, a stu-
dent must have an upper division grade point
average of 3.50, 3.75, and 3.85, respectively. (For


purposes of honors, UF upper division courses
are defined as all courses taken at this univer-
sity after the student has earned 3 AG credits,
wherever taken.) In addition to a minimum
GPA requirement, a candidate for high honors
or highest honors 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 sci-
entific style and submitted to the faculty
research supervisor and to the undergraduate
coordinator during the last week of the semes-
ter. For students who are candidates for high or
highest honors in the College of Agriculture, a
copy of the thesis must be submitted to the col-
lege office at 2002 McCarty Hall at least three
days before graduation. The final decision on
the honor distinction that the student receives 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.

Wildlife Ecology and Conservation
The department offers a major in wildlife
ecology and conservation with four areas of
specialization: wildlife resources; wildlife con-
servation; preprofessional; and biology educa-
tion. The department also co-administers a
major in natural resource conservation with the
School of Forest Resources and Conservation.
WILDLIFE RESOURCES SPECIALIZATION
The wildlife resources specialization is the
main option of the wildlife ecology and conser-


vation major. It is designed to enable graduates
to qualify for certification as associate wildlife
biologists by The Wildlife Society and for entry-
level professional employment or graduate edu-
cation. The objective of the wildlife resources
specialization is to educate students in the bio-
logical, social, physical and management sci-
ences enabling them to excel at both scientific
and human dimensions of managing wildlife
and related natural resources.

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 and landscape
architecture. 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 offers a Ph.D. program with concen-
trations in architecture, urban and regional plan-
ning and building construction.
The college's teaching, research and commu-
nity service philosophy recognizes 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 1211,1701,2201,3783; BCN 1210,4012,
4237, 4464, 4471; IND 1020, 2100, 2130; LAA 1920,
2710, 4935; URP 3001, 4000). In addition, the first
one and one-half years of design course work are
common to the three undergraduate design disci-
plines (architecture, landscape architecture and
interior design). Research and service projects
conducted through the research centers and insti-
tutes (described below) often entail multidiscipli-
nary, 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
computers, travel, equipment and tools essential
to their education as design, planning or con-
struction 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 for 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: 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 new 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 pro-
grams of the college. Membership in the profes-
sional organizations of each discipline is avail-
able to students. Student chapters of the
American Institute of Architecture Students, the
American Society of Interior Designers, Inter-
national Institute of Interior 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 represented in addi-
tion to the National Organization of Minority
Architects and the National Association of
Minority Contractors. The college recognizes
the importance of student involvement and
encourages and assists participation with pro-
fessional 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 selective.
Admission is not guaranteed automatically to
all applicants who satisfy minimum require-
ments. The college has established a selective
admission process. Priority in admission shall
be given to those applicants who, in the judg-
ment of the appropriate department/school's
admissions committee, have the greatest appar-
ent potential for successful completion of the
program.
To be eligible for admission into the College
of Architecture, students must have (a) com-
pleted all requirements for the A.A. degree; (b)
passed the College Level Academic Skills Test
(CLAST); and (c) completed two sequential for-
eign language courses in secondary school or 8-
10 credits at the postsecondary level (or docu-
mented an equivalent level of proficiency). Such
applicants are considered for admission into
either the lower division (first- or second-year)
or upper division (third- or fourth year) of their
major's curriculum. Admission into upper divi-
sion is open to applicants who have completed
all lower division general education and prepro-
fessional course work and qualify for enroll-
ment into the third-year professional course
work. Admission into lower division is open to
applicants who have accumulated 60 credits of
college-level course work and meet the admis-
sions criteria, yet still need to complete first-
year and second-year preprofessional courses.
Generally, transfer students with an A.A.
degree and CLAST or students from other uni-
versities that do not offer approved preprofes-
sional programs or courses required at the
Univeristy of Florida are considered for condi-
tional admission into upper division. These stu-
dents may require as many as four semesters at
the University of Florida to complete their lower
division preprofessional requirements, due to
the sequential nature of the courses.
Criteria used in review by each of the
departments/school may include any or all of
the following:
* Quality of work completed, overall GPA and
preprofessional GPA.
Achievements in preprofessional courses
and/or courses related to the student's cho-
sen plan of study.
Portfolio review or pin-up (design students).

Admission Protocols
Freshmen at the University of Florida are
initially admitted to the College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences as lower division students, with an
L.S. (Liberal Arts and Sciences) classification,
and are under the control of that college.
The College of Architecture also has speci-
fied a series of admission protocols that stu-
dents seeking formal admission to the college
are expected to follow. By agreement, both the
College of Architecture and College of Liberal







COLLEGES


Arts and Sciences will monitor the progress of
such students. Students who fall below the min-
imum admission protocols for their degree pro-
gram will become a Change Major, will revert
to an L.S. classification within the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences, and will be required
to seek admission to another upper division col-
lege or to make alternative academic plans.
Transfer students who will receive their
Association 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 each department are as follows:
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 calen-
dar. Transfer students with provisional
admission status (3AR or above) must
notify the department office of their wish to
be considered for third-year admission by
the same date.
Curriculum in Interior Design: Transfer students
must consult the program adviser. Students
in the predesign programs at Miami-Dade,
Broward, St. Petersburg and Hillsborough
community colleges must contact the depart-
ment regarding preprofessional courses not
available at those colleges. Students needing
to complete lower division preprofessional
requirements are urged to apply for the
summer term for the sequence of architec-
tural design, building arts and architectural
history. The remaining preprofessional
courses may be completed during the next
academic year. Students accepted for the
sequence shall be admitted as provisional
students and their records shall be reviewed
for approval to enter the professional
courses in the junior year during the spring
of the next year. Students are admitted selec-
tively to the upper division program on the
basis of portfolio review, overall grade point
average, interview and letter of application.
Notification of the decision of the admissions
committee shall be made prior to the cose 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. All students
must complete all required general educa-
tion and preprofessional course work prior
to admission to professional studies. Criteria
for admission include review of design per-
formance, 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 11. The application deadlines for these
departments for spring and summer are given
as stated in the university calendar. 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.


College Regulations
Maximum and Minimum Loads
Fourteen to sixteen credits in any regular
semester shall be considered a normal load. A
student may be permitted to register for more
than 17 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.
While the preprofessional 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 overall and a 2.0 grade point average 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 calculation of the
College of Architecture average. Specific grade
requirements for the various curricula may be
obtained from those offices.
Students planning to enter the Graduate
School must maintain a 3.0 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. For high or highest honors, a thesis,
research project or other creative work also is
required. The following are the honors, high
honors or highest honors requirements for
departments in the College of Architecture:
Department of Architecture: Honors desig-
nations for graduation in architecture are calcu-
lated on all courses in the professional curricu-
lum resulting in the following GPAs: honors
(3.3), high honors (3.6) and highest honors
(3.65). In addition, for high and highest honors,
the faculty evaluation of the final fourth-year
design project is required.
Department of Interior Design: Honors des-
ignations for graduation in interior design are
calculated on all courses in the professional cur-
riculum resulting in the following overall GPAs;
honors (3.3), high honors (3.6) and highest hon-
ors (3.80). In addition, for high and highest hon-
ors, the faculty evaluation of a fourth-year
design project is required.







ARCHITECTURE


Department of Landscape Architecture:
Honor designations for graduation in landscape
architecture are calculated on all courses in the
professional curriculum resulting in the follow-
ing GPAs: honors (3.2), high honors (3.5) and
highest honors (3.75). In addition, for high and
highest honors, the faculty evaluation of the
final fourth-year design project is required.

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 seek-
ing application to the College of Architecture
should anticipate, as part of their budget plan-
ning, expenditures for field trips, equipment
and tools essential to their education as design,
planning or construction professionals. These
expenses include but are not limited to a week-
long field trip that is required of all junior and
senior level architecture, interior design and
landscape architecture students. Students
should plan to have adequate funds available.
Supplemental fees also are required for par-
ticipation in off-campus programs, including
the Vicenza Institute of Architecture (VIA) and
the Education and Research Center in Miami
Beach. It may be necessary to assess studio fees
to defray increasing costs of base maps and
other materials.

Computer Policy
Personal computer design, graphic and
operational competence is an essential compo-
nent of the contemporary professional environ-
ment. Appropriate related computer skills are


now required for all entry-level opportunities in
each of the professional disciplines within the
college.
In the College of Architecture, course content
increasingly relies on students having computer
skills and personal access to computers with the
proper software for these disciplines. While uni-
versity computer facilities are widespread, the
demands on these facilities are significant.
Therefore, it is required of all students enter-
ing the third year professional programs and
entering graduate programs within the college to
purchase, lease or otherwise obtain continuing
access to a personal computer. Each academic"
unit within the college will maintain information
concerning computer hardware and software
appropriate to its discipline and curriculum.

Curriculum in Architecture
Leading to the Bachelor of Design
Robert S. McCarter, Chair
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
preprofessional degree, the first step toward
professional registration as an architect.
Admission into the graduate program is selec-
tive and information regarding the criteria for
admission is contained in the Graduate Catalog.
Bachelor of Design graduates are employed in
private practice, corporate offices and govern-
ment agencies. Internship in the profession is a
required and integrated part of the licensure
process.
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.

NAAB Statement
Most states require that an individual
intending to become an architect hold an
accredited degree. There are two types of
degrees that are accredited by the National
Architectural Accrediting Board: (1) The
Bachelor of Architecture, which requires a mini-
mum of five years of study; and (2) the Master
of Architecture, which requires a minimum of
three years of study following an unrelated
bachelor's degree or two years following a
related preprofessional bachelor's degree. These
professional degrees are structured to educate
those who aspire to registration and licensure to
practice as architects.
The four-year preprofessional degree, where
offered, is not accredited by the NAAB. The pre-
professional degree is useful to those wishing a
foundation in the field of architecture, as prepa-
ration for either continued education in a pro-
fessional degree program or for employment
options in fields related to architecture.

Limited Access Program
All students (community college transfers
and UF students) must apply for admission to
the upper division Bachelor of Design (Archi-
tecture) program. The number of applicants
who can be accepted into upper division is lim-
ited by available classroom space, studio space
and faculty. The admission process is based on
three criteria: overall lower division grade point
average, architectural grade point average and
an exhibit score based on an evaluation of each
student's studio work (1-10 scale). For the past
several years, the average for each criteria has
been as follows: overall grade point average 3.1,
architectural grade point average 3.4 and exhibit
score 5.5. Students must have completed all
lower division requirements successfully to be


guaranteed admission. Community college
transfers must have completed the Associate of
Arts degree, with all general education and pre-
professional requirements, and passed the
College Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST).
Students with an overall grade point average
below 2.5, an architectural grade point average
below 2.75 or a pin-up exhibit 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.

Leading to the Bachelor of Design
Jerry L. Nielson, Chair
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 and 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
creatively to resolve problems of interior envi-
ronments. The interior design faculty seek to
equip the student with a knowledge of design
techniques, materials, resources and an aware-
ness of the interrelated professional responsibil-
ity of the environmental design professions.
Field trips are required in upper division.
Students should plan to have adequate funds
for field trips and design studio project materi-
als. Internships are recommended in the sum-
mer 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.

tural and scientific knowledge. Both resource
conservation and the requirements of the built
environment are studied. Graduates are
employed by professional offices; municipal,
state or federal recreation; landscape architec-
tural or planning agencies; and the construction,


development or horticultural industries.
Graduates also may continue in graduate pro-
grams 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.

increase student knowledge of the construction
industry, to promote fellowship and profession-
alism and to provide service to the school, the
university and the community. Membership is
open to all building construction students. The
activities of SCBA include community service
projects, guest speakers, social gatherings, and
attendance at the AGC and NAHB National
Conventions.

STUDENT CHAPTER, ASSOCIATED
BUILDERS AND CONTRACTORS
The purpose of the student chapter of the
Associated Builders and Contractors (A.B.C.) is
to increase student knowledge of the construc-
tion industry, to promote fellowship and profes-
sionalism and to provide service to the school,
the university and the community. Membership
is open to all construction-related majors.
Activities include A.B.C. Job Fair, guest
speakers, social gatherings, attendance at state
and national conventions, as well as monthly
chapter meetings with our parent chapter,
A.B.C. Gulf Coast. The national-level A.B.C.
promotes Merit Shop.

NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF MINORITY
CONTRACTORS
The student chapter of the National Associa-
tion of Minority Contractors (NAMC) plays an
active role in the recruitment and retention of
minority and female students in the school, and
promotes fellowship, equality and professional-
ism among all students. Membership is open to
all building construction students. One of the
most important goals of the NAMC is academic
improvement. To enhance the academic climate,
the NAMC provides tutors and incentives to
motivate students to excel in construction edu-
cation.
CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT
ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA
The Construction Management Association
of America is the only construction association
devoted to promoting professional construction
management. CMAA at the university is open
to all students. The student chapter sponsors
guest speakers, social gatherings, and presenta-
tion of papers at regional and national meetings.
CMAA has over 200 corporate members who
specialize in construction management and over
1,000 individual members who are construction
managers.
AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF CONSTRUCTORS
The AIC student chapter is the entry level
into the American Institute of Constructors. AIC
promotes professionalism of the individual
through education, communication within the


profession and establishment of ethical codes
and rules of professional conduct. The student
chapter promotes those ideals through service
to the school, university and the community.
Membership is open to all building construction
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.

CHRISTIANS IN CONSTRUCTION
Christians in Construction (CIC) was estab-
lished at the School of Building Construction in
1993. The organization sponsors guest speakers
from the construction industry. CIC has no
membership dues and is open to every student
who wants to put their faith into action within
the construction field.

Computer Policy
Personal computer design, graphic and
operational competence is an essential compo-
nent of the contemporary professional environ-
ment. Appropriate related computer skills are
now required for most entry-level opportunities
in the construction industry. Course content
increasingly relies on student computer skills
and access to computers. While university com-
puter facilities are widespread, the demands on
these facilities are significant. Therefore, it is
strongly recommended that all students pur-
chase, lease or otherwise obtain continuing
access to a personal computer. Information con-
cerning appropriate computer hardware and
software may be obtained from the school.

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.
Prospective junior and community college
transfer students should consult their advisers
or write to the School of Building Construction
for a pre-building construction program of local
study.
Opportunities for advancement and increas-
ing responsibility exist in all areas of the con-
struction industry, a few of which include land
development; home building; public building;
industrialized building systems; commercial,
industrial, marine and heavy construction;
underwater and space-age facilities; materials
and equipment sales and installations; and con-
struction product research, development, sales
and applications.

Application Deadlines
The school will admit students for third-year
professional course work only in the fall and
spring semesters. All application procedures,
receipt of official transcripts and school require-
ments for admission should be completed by
the deadlines stated below.
Fall Semester-March 1, 1996
Spring Semester-September 2,1996

Requirements For Admission
Listed below are the requirements for admis-
sion to this school. It should be understood,
however, that minimum requirements are given
and that admission to the school is selective.

M.A.P.P. (Monitoring Academic Progress
Policy)
Progress of students toward meeting admis-
sion requirements will be tracked in accordance
with the university's Monitoring Academic
Progress Policy at 30, 45 and 60 hour bench-
marks using the performance criteria indicated
above. Students who have met all requirements
at the 30- and 45-hour benchmarks and are
admitted early must still meet all requirements
at the 60-hour benchmark.
ALL STUDENTS
* Limited Admissions: The satisfaction of min-
imum requirements does not guarantee
admission. The school has established a
selective process for admission and only a
limited number of new students are accepted
each fall and spring terms. No distinction is
made between internal and external trans-
fers.
Students must attain at least a 2.0 (C) average
in building construction prerequisite course
work and have an overall 2.0 average for all
lower division work required for and leading
to a baccalaureate degree in building con-
struction. All applicants are rank-ordered
and those with the best academic records
(based on building construction prerequisite
course work) are admitted.
Students must have achieved a passing score
on the College Level Academic Skills Test.
Extra credits above the 61 semester hours
required for admission to the school will not
reduce the number of credit hours to be
completed in the upper division to earn a
degree. These courses may not be accepted
for equivalent credit in upper division.
Waiver of Liability: Several courses require
attendance at field trips to receive full bene-
fit from the curriculum. To allow full partic-
ipation in such worthwhile activities, all
students must sign a waiver of liability and
hold harmless agreement as a prerequisite
to acceptance into the School of Building
Construction. In addition, student organiza-
tions are represented at conferences, semi-
nars and projects outside of campus. A sep-


arate and similar waiver form will be used
for students desiring to participate in these
voluntary activities.

COLLEGES


Job Placement
The Building Construction Job Placement
office is located in Fine Arts Complex C. This
office is invaluable in assisting seniors and
graduate students in obtaining permanent
employment upon graduation. Traditionally,
the majority of graduating BCN students secure
employment before graduation. The job place-
ment office is largely responsible for this out-
standing achievement. Summer employment
also may be obtained through this office.

School Regulations
STUDENT RESPONSIBILITY: The student
must assume full responsibility for registering
for the proper courses and for fulfilling all
requirements for the degree. The student is also
responsible for completing all courses.
Courses may be dropped with adviser
approval and without petitioning until the end
of the first week of the semester. After the first
week, courses may be dropped or changed
without penalty only through the administra-
tive office of the school (by petition) and the
Office of the University Registrar.
Seniors must file 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 university calendar lists
the deadline.
NORMAL LOADS: The average course load
in the School of Building Construction is 16
credit hours. A student may be permitted to
register for additional hours if, in the opinion of
the academic adviser, the student's academic
record justifies this. Students who wish to take
fewer than 12 hours should be aware that cer-
tain university privileges and benefits require a
minimum registration. It is the student's respon-
sibility to verify the minimum registration nec-
essary for these privileges and benefits.
STUDENT WORK: The school reserves the
right to retain all student work for the purpose
of record, exhibition or instruction.
PROBATION AND SUSPENSION: Students
who do not make satisfactory academic progress
may be excluded from further registration.

requirements.
After admission to upper division, students
must attain at least a 2.0 grade point average
on all courses which count toward upper
division degree requirements.


A minimum of 126 semester hours is
required for graduation. The waiving of any-
required course does not reduce the hours
required for graduation.
GRADUATE SCHOOL: Students planning to
enter the Graduate School should maintain a 3.0
(B) average in upper division work.
NORMAL ACADEMIC PROGRESS: The stu-
dent will have maintained normal academic
progress when the student earns a minimum

attempted in the upper division. In addition, the
student is required to take courses in sequence
as specified by the school director or adviser.
The student may be excluded from a program of
study in the School of Building Construction if
the student fails or refuses to maintain normal
academic progress.
DEAN'S LIST AND GRADUATION WITH
HONORS: A student who has carried a mini-
mum of 12 hours per semester with a grade
point average of at least 3.7 will be placed on
the Dean's List for that semester.
To graduate with honors, a student must
make at least a 3.3 average on all course work
accepted as upper division credit and all course
work (except as noted below) attempted while
registered in the upper division. To graduate
with high or highest honors a student must
make at least a 3.6 or 3.75 average, respectively,
on all work accepted as upper division credit
and all course work (except as noted below)
attempted while registered in the upper divi-
sion. In addition, for high and highest honors,
the student must complete a project or other
creative work.
In calculating requirements for graduating
with honors, high honors or highest honors, the
following policies are followed: Transfer credits
and S-U Option credits are excluded. Credits for
lower division courses taken while registered in
upper division also will be excluded.
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 in the 1990-91 catalog.
