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 and school of the University of Florida 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 college requirements, dropping courses, normal course
loads, degree requirements 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 Mass Communication. NOTE: Because some
courses are offered by more than one department, you may have to look in several departments' course descriptions sections to find course information.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions About Universal Tracking

What is Universal Tracking?
Universal tracking (UT) is a system that monitors the progress of all undergraduate majors toward graduation.
What is the purpose of universal tracking?
Universal tracking is designed to assist students in finding the best path toward completion of their degree, to advise them into the most appropriate
major as soon as possible, and to provide feedback every fall and spring semester on their academic progress.
How does UT help students into the best major for them?
UT monitors the critical courses for all majors and provides feedback to the student and to the adviser beginning with the fall semester of the freshman
year. This immediate feedback will help the student determine if he/she has chosen the best major.
When did tracking begin?
Evaluation of all undergraduate students began Fall 1996.
How can a student find out what the tracking criteria are for other majors?
There are several ways to obtain this information:
Speak with an adviser in the college that offers the major.
Speak with an adviser in the Academic Advising Center (AAC).
Look in an Undergraduate Catalog in the appropriate college section; information and semester-by-semester plans for each major are included.
Pick up instructions from any campus computer lab or access ISIS on-line via the World Wide Web (http://www.isis.ufl.edu). ISIS allows a student
to explore the requirements for different majors.
Students also may utilize the computers located in the campus computer labs, (CIRCA), to access ISIS.
How will students be informed about critical tracking criteria?
Critical tracking criteria are indicated in the catalog under the curriculum plans for each major.
Students are mailed universal tracking audits each fall and spring semester. The UT audit lists all curriculum requirements for a student's major.
Critical tracking courses are preceded by the ">>" symbol on the UT audit and they are highlighted in the catalog.
Students may consult an adviser in their college for additional information.
How are students notified that they are OFF track?
Students who are off track are notified in writing by the university. A HOLD is placed on their record and they cannot advance register until they have
met with an academic adviser and formulated an alternative academic plan.
How does the off-track HOLD affect students?
Students may not register until they meet with their adviser.
Students must develop a plan to complete the necessary courses to get back on track for the major.
The adviser then can lift the HOLD and allow the student to register.
Who will have the authority to decide if students who are off track for a particular major can continue in that major?
The college or academic adviser will have the authority to determine if a student can continue to register. The adviser and student must work together
to develop a plan to get the student back on track toward graduation.
Will students who are on track receive any notification?
The students who are on track will receive their grades.
Will students be notified if a college has not removed the tracking HOLD?
Yes. Prior to advance registration in the fall and spring terms, tracking audits are mailed to all students. If there is a HOLD, it will be printed at the top
of the audit.
How many terms can a student be off track?
If a student is off track for two consecutive terms, he/she should consider a different major.
If a student is off track for two consecutive terms and wants to change majors, what should he/she do?
If the student has selected a new major, he/she should contact the college offering that major to schedule an appointment with an adviser to discuss
changing the major. The student should visit the Academic Advising Center for assistance in choosing a new major. If the chosen major is not offered by
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the student will be referred to the college offering the major to initiate a request for change of major.
How will universal tracking impact academic advising, especially for freshmen and sophomores?
Universal tracking ensures that all students (freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors) receive academic advising from their college advisers.
In what ways can the Academic Advising Center assist students?
AAC advises students who have majors in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. AAC can help any student select a new major.
Are students allowed to change majors?
Yes, students can change majors if they have college approval.
"The goal of universal tracking is to help students find majors that match their talents and interests.
Will accumulating excess hours restrict a student's ability to change majors?
Excess hours should not prevent a student from changing majors.
Students who matriculated in Summer B 1996 or later will pay an excess hours charge if they exceed the hours required for their degree by more than
10%.
How many hours can a student transfer from a community college?
* Sixty hours








Frequently Asked Questions About the Undergraduate Catalog


The Undergraduate Catalog is very long. What should I bother to read it?
While the catalog may not look flashy, it contains information that is critical to your academic success at UF.
I am a freshman. Where should I start?
You might begin by examining the tracks for your major. Each major has a suggested eight-semester plan that will enable you to graduate in four years.
The index will help you find the appropriate pages for your major.
Where can I find information on Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate course equivalencies?
Look in the Academic Advising section for course equivalencies. If you want to know what courses to take next, look at the placement charts as well.
What is CLAST and where do I sign up?
CLAST information can be found in the Academic Regulations section.
What do I need to know about the Gordon Rule communication and computation requirement?
Refer to the Academic Advising section. Also remember that Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate credit count toward Gordon Rule.
How do I find out about my SAT II scores?
Consult the charts in the Academic Advising or Admissions sections or refer to the schedule of courses.
What are the general education requirements of the university?
Consult the Academic Advising section.
I'm Pre-Med or Pre-Law. Where can I find information that would help me pursue my interests in medicine or law?
Refer to the Academic Advising section for preprofessional studies information and then consult an adviser in the Office of Health and Legal
Professions Advising in 100 AAC.
What about transfer credit?
Refer to the transfer credit policy in the Academic Regulations section.
Is there somewhere I can find information about graduate school?
Yes, you can get a copy of the Graduate Catalog or you can discuss graduate education with an academic adviser or a faculty member in your major.
Where would I find general information about the school year and the length of the semesters?
The academic year calendar pages follow this page in the catalog. In addition, there are calendars included for the next four academic years.
I am interested in overseas study. Where can I find information on the programs available?
Again, refer to the Academic Advising section or go to the Overseas Studies Office in 123 Tigert Hall.
Is there any other section I should know about?
The Academic Regulations and Academic Advising sections are two very important sections for all students. In addition, the college section that houses
your major contains information of great importance to you.

University of Florida Purpose, Mission and Goals


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's academic disciplines and multi-
disciplinary centers and represent the universi-
ty's obligation to lead and serve the needs of the
nation, all of Florida's citizens, and the public
and private educational systems of Florida by
pursuing and disseminating new knowledge
while building upon the past.
The University of Florida is committed to
providing knowledge, benefits and services
with quality and effectiveness. It aspires to fur-
ther 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 between scholars and
students that extends over space and time, link-
ing the experiences of Western Europe with the
traditions 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 characteristic,
and, through frequent repetition, this descrip-
tion takes on the style of ritual incantation:
rhythmic, reverent and infrequently examined.
What, then, does each of these key words mean?
Major. Here is one of our most important
aspirations. We will be, we must be and we are
a major university. We define ourselves in com-
parison to the best universities we can find. We
do not need to be the absolute best, but we must
be among the best universities in the world.
Exact ranking of the best universities is a mean-
ingless exercise, but most of us can name 62
great universities. By whatever indicatorof
quality we choose, our university should fall
into this group. If we define a group of univer-
sities that shares our adjectives (major, public,
comprehensive, 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
close interaction with the political process.
Private universities, which have a different pro-
file, do not respond in the same ways to these
issues. As a public university, we must main-
tain close, continuous and effective communica-
tion 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 72 such institu-
tions in America. The land-grant university is,
of course, a peculiarly American invention and
captures one of the powerful cultural beliefs of
our country: that knowledge passes the test of
utility by remaining vitally connected to indus-
try 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, its
policies and affairs is vested in the Board of
Regents, a body composed of 12 citizens who
are appointed by the governor for six-year
terms, one student appointed for one year, and
the State Commissioner of Education.
University affairs are administered by the presi-
dent with the advice and assistance of univer-
sity administration, the University Senate and
various committees elected by the Senate and
appointed by the president.


Students
University of Florida students-numbering
almost 40,000 in Fall 1996-come from more than
100 countries (3,683 international students), all
50 states, and every one of the 67 counties in
Florida. The ratio of men to women is 52/48.
Seventy-seven percent of UF students are
undergraduates (30,711), 17% are graduate stu-
dents (6,819) and 6% (2,402) are in the profes-
sional programs of dentistry, law, medicine,
pharmacy and veterinary medicine.
Approximately 2,400 African-American stu-
dents, 3,565 Hispanic students and 2,275 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 five public universi-
ties in the nation in the number of enrolled
National Merit Scholars, Achievement Scholars,
International Baccalaureate graduates and
Advance Placement score recipients.

Faculty
The university has approximately 4,000 dis-
tinguished faculty members with outstanding
reputations for teaching, research and service.
The Teaching Improvement Program (TIP), a
nationally recognized program to enhance and
reward undergraduate teaching, has provided a
major emphasis on the quality of instruction.
The newly developed Professorial Excellence
Program (PEP) rewards faculty based on their
accomplishments and continuing productivity
since promotion to the rank of professor,
including excellence and high merit in scholar-
ship or creative achievement, teaching, service
and extension. The faculty attracted more than
$200 million in research and training grants in
1995-96.
UF currently has 54 eminent scholar chairs,
positions funded at more than $1 million each to
attract nationally and internationally recognized
scholars. A variety of other endowed professor-
ships helps attract prominent faculty. More than
two dozen faculty are members of the National
Academies of Science and/or Engineering, the
Institute of Medicine or a counterpart in another
nation. Also, in a national ranking of total
Fulbright Awards for 1995-96, Florida stands
11th among all universities, with 14 visiting
scholars and eight american scholars.
A very small sampling of honored faculty
includes: a Nobel Laureate, Pulitzer Prize win-
ners in editorial writing and poetry, inventors of
Gatorade and Bioglass (a man-made material
that bonds with human tissue), 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


GENERAL INFORMATION

categorized in 1994 by the Carnegie Commis-
sion on Higher Education. UF is one of 62 mem-
bers of the Association of American
Universities, the nation's most prestigious
higher education organization. The university 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.
Last year, more than 32,000 people 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 confer-
ences, workshops, institutes, and seminars. And
more than 7,500 students enrolled in
Independent Study by Correspondence courses,
both credit and non-credit.

Semester System
UF operates on a semester system. The acad-
emic year begins and ends in August. There are
two semesters averaging 15 weeks of instruc-
tion, plus a week of final examinations and two
six-week summer terms. Semesters begin in
August, January, and May, with summer term
offered as a whole as Term C, or in two sessions
as half terms, with Term A beginning in May
and Term B beginning in June.

Facilities
On 2,000 acres, most of it within the limits of
a 97,500-population urban area, the university
operates out of more than 890 buildings, 158 of
them equipped with classrooms and laborato-
ries. Facilities are valued at approximately $625
million. Notable among these are the University
Art Gallery, a microkelvin laboratory capable of
producing some of the coldest temperatures in
the universe, a 100-kilowatt training and
research nuclear reactor, the second largest aca-
demic computing center in the South, and a self-
contained intensive-care hyperbaric chamber for
treating near-drowning victims.
The Florida Museum of Natural History is
the largest natural history/anthropology
museum in the Southeast, and one of the top 10
in the nation. Its research collections contain
nearly 6.5 million specimens.
The Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art, with
18,000 square feet of exhibit space, is one of the
largest museums in the Southeast.





GENERAL INFORMATION


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
games, arts and crafts, music listening and TV
viewing.

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 it must
develop and maintain a safe and secure envi-
ronment for its students, faculty 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 free-
dom, however, comes the responsibility to exer-
cise 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 environ-
ment.
The University Police Department has close
to 100 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 uni-
versity community includes members of the fac-
ulty, staff and administration as well as stu-
dents.


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, promote
an atmosphere of learning. Faculty, staff and
administration are expected to provide encour-
agement, leadership and 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 administrators who practice dis-
honest or demeaning behavior.
Student Responsibility. Students should
report any condition that facilitates dishon-
Sesty to the instructor, department chair, col-
lege dean or 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 that
leads to high standards and respectful con-
duct. When those are compromised, it will
take disciplinary action against organiza-
tions and individuals violating either the
law or the reasonable use of alcohol. It also
must provide help for students who are alco-
hol-dependent. The university will deal
severely with students convicted of the ille-
gal 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.

Student Housing
The university offers a unique and exciting
residence hall program. The Division of Housing
provides accommodations and programs to meet
the needs of students while promoting the overall
educational 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


I





STUDENT AFFAIRS


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, the Division of Housing has devel-
oped a program based on alternatives and
choices. Students may select accommodations
and environments 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 (mid August to early May), if
enrolled. However, residents should be full-
time students to be eligible to reside in the resi-
dence halls. Full-time enrollment for residence
is defined as being enrolled in 12 semester
credit hours if an undergraduate and 9 semester
credit hours if a graduate student.
All students other than beginning freshmen
must initiate their own arrangements for hous-
ing either by (1) applying to Assignments
Office, University Housing Office, Box 112100,
University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611-
2100, or (2) obtaining accommodations in pri-
vate housing. (See Off-Campus Housing later in
this section.)
Applications for residence hall space for stu-
dents other than beginning freshmen are avail-
able twelve months prior to the semester or
summer term for which admission is 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 both their housing agreement
and application.
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.
All rooms have closets, storage space,
dressers, beds and mattresses, study desks and


chairs. Rental rates include cable television ser-
vice, local telephone service and utilities (lim-
ited utilities in the Apartment Facility). Rental
rates vary depending on such features as air
conditioning, floor space, private baths and
kitchen facilities.
Residence Hall Staff: The Division of Housing
employs nearly 700 full-time and part-time staff.
Staff include custodians, maintenance staff, cler-
ical staff, administrators and student staff,
including hall directors, assistant residence
directors, resident assistants, desk assistants and
security assistants.
One of the housing staff's primary goals is
to provide an environment that supports the
educational mission of the university. Staff are
committed to going beyond merely providing a
place for students to eat, sleep and study. Staff
and student leaders plan social, recreational,
cultural and educational opportunities. Staff
also are trained in crisis intervention and in
personal and fire safety and security proce-
dures.
Students' main contact with staff is with res-
ident assistants (RAs), co-op officers, graduate
hall directors (HDs) and assistant residence
directors (ARDs), residence directors (RDs) and
assistant directors of housing for residence life
(ADHs). An undergraduate RA or co-op officer
lives on each floor or section to serve as a peer
adviser aiding students in their transition to the
university experience. Graduate staff, who
supervise RAs, help to promote a learning envi-
ronment and coordinate area activities. The
ADH, a full-time university administrator, is
responsible for the overall administrative and
educational functions within each residence
area.

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 collec-
tive interests of all resident students. This orga-
nization also serves as a channel of communica-
tion between residence area government coun-
cils, the university community and other out-
side 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
student room. Students provide their own
touchtone telephones. Cost of local service is
included in the rental rate. Local service

ing and call return.


Convenience Stores: Beaty Breadbasket,
Graham Cracker and the Finish Line, three con-
venience stores owned and operated by Gator

tunity to purchase board plans or declining bal-
ance accounts on an optional basis from Gator

Halls (non-honors) on their residence hall agree-
ments will be guaranteed assignment to one of
these air conditioned halls. In support of this
program, a large, multi-purpose dining facility
located near Tolbert Area and Florida Field has
been constructed. Other cafeterias and snack
bars on campus include dining facilities in or
near Broward Hall, Tolbert Area and Murphree
Area. A snack bar is located in Graham Hall.
Dining facilities and/or food vendors are also
located in the Reitz Student Union and the Hub.

ers to residence halls. For further information,
please contact the Gator Dining Service office,

Refrigerator Rental: Students may choose to
rent a refrigerator or to bring their own.
University Programs Incorporated (UPI), a pri-
vately-owned rental company and authorized
university vendor, rents refrigerators to on-cam-
pus residents. 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.
The university offers many education and
awareness programs for students concerning
campus safety. Security policies and programs
continuously are reviewed and monitored for
possible revisions and/or upgrades.
Vending: Vending machines are located
conveniently in all residence halls.

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" is free money such as scholar-
ships and grants. Students do not have to repay
these awards. "Self-help" programs include
loans and employment and are so named
because students must repay loans and 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 SFA. Most campus-based money is
awarded early, so to be considered for this assis-


tance students should apply as soon as possible
after January 1. A few programs such as the
Federal Pell Grant program, 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 automatically when students apply for
admission. To apply for financial aid students
must obtain a Free Application for Federal Student
Aid (FAFSA) and a UF Gator Aid Application
Guide from any Florida community college or
high school guidance office. Students can
request these forms from the Office for Student
Financial Affairs, Box 114025, Gainesville, FL
32611-4025, or by calling (352) 392-1275.
Students must complete and submit a Free
Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to the
Federal Student Aid Programs processor at the
address indicated on the form. Your financial
data must reach us from the processor no later
than March 17. Be sure to allow a minimum of
three weeks processing time. Financial aid tran-
scripts from all previously attended institutions
covering all periods of attendance are required
for all transfer students. Students should pro-
vide accurate financial figures taken directly
from completed 1996 income tax forms. To com-
ply with federal financial aid requirements, the
Office for Student Financial Affairs must verify
all information. Incorrect information or incor-
rectly 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 Act 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 17 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 1997 is
October 15, 1997. 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.
Satellite Office: SFA has satellite offices located
at the Colleges of Dentistry, Health Professions,
Law and Medicine.
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
Admissions. Individual colleges within the uni-
versity also offer scholarships to undergradu-

must be repaid when the borrower graduates,
withdraws or drops to less than half-time enroll-
ment.
Loans range upward from $500 per academic
year at interest rates from 0 percent and 25 per-

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.

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

bation status.
Any action taken by the University Senate
Committee on Student Petitions regarding stu-
dents' appeals of their suspended enrollment
because of grade point deficit (for students who


have not yet earned 60 credit hours) will also
apply to the financial aid component of the aca-
demic progress policy.
Students will not be eligible for aid if they
do not earn a baccalaureate degree after carry-
ing 150 credit hours (whether or not they
received aid for all terms), with the following

hours for a baccalaureate degree must earn 91
percent of their hours carried and must earn a
degree after carrying a maximum of 160 credit
hours; and
Students who do not earn the minimum
percentage of credit hours specified will be
placed on financial aid probation for one term.
During the following term of enrollment these
students must increase their credit hours to the
minimum. If they do not, they will be sus-
pended from aid until they meet this standard.
Students may receive up-to-ten full-time
terms of aid (or the equivalent) with the follow-
ing exceptions:
Students admitted under the Board of
Regents 10 percent admissions policy may
receive up-to-eleven full-time terms (or the
equivalent) of aid;
Students in programs requiring more

gram requiring more than 130 credit hours may
receive up-to-twelve full-time terms (or the
equivalent) of aid.

transferring to the university may receive aid is
prorated based on their entering enrollment sta-
tus. For example, a student enrolling as a junior

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.

while receiving financial aid will be on financial
aid warning;

Career Resource Center
The Career Resource Center, on the west
side of the first floor of the J. Wayne Reitz
Union, provides career planning, cooperative
education/internship work experience opportu-
nities and employment assistance to all students
and alumni.
The center's mission is to assist students in:
developing and exploring career plans
related to academic interests,
acquiring career-related work experiences,
developing personal strategies that ensure
successful employment upon graduation, and
assisting students in an interview environ-
ment which leads to securing employment.
The center's services focus upon the student,
from freshmen exploring careers to seniors
seeking employment. Students can use the ser-
vices of the center at any point in their college
careers. Services are free and include individual
counseling for students seeking career planning,
career changes, work experience and job search
campaigns. Ten professional counselors and
several graduate assistants are available.
CHOICES, a computerized career explo-
ration and occupational information system, is
available free to students. CHOICES helps
match career interests with occupations and
provides each student a personal printout for
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-

semester and conduct thousands of on-campus
job interviews, the largest such program in the
state. The center uses a revolutionary new
career center management database,
G.R.A.D.@, or the Gator Recruitment Activities
database. This combines a professional resume
preparation program with a demographic sec-
tion 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 first come to the
GRAD service counter, where they pay a mod-
est licensing and access fee. They are then
granted entry into the system from any Web-
access terminal at their home, on-campus
computer labs or terminals in the CRC. Once
into the system, students simply follow the


__STUDENT AFFAIRS
T


instructions and prompts, complete both the
demographic information and resume section,
and send the data (via the Web) to the CRC for
inclusion in its 1st Place!@ database. The informa-
tion can (and should) be updated as often as
required. Once the information is in the CRC
system, the student is registered with the center
and may participate in on-campus interviews.
The center uses the information and the resume
to provide referrals via its Gator Locator system
directly to employers who have requested can-
didates 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-

HIV Infection: The university's policy is to
assess the needs of students or employees with
HIV infection on a case-by-case basis. With per-
mission of the affected individual (whether stu-
dent, faculty or staff member), the director of
the Student Health Care Center will assist in the
coordination of resources and services.
The confidentiality of the individual's HIV
status as well as the individual's welfare are
respected. Breach of confidentiality of informa-
tion obtained by a university employee in an
official university capacity may result in disci-
plinary action.
Based on current medical information con-
cerning risk of infection, the university does not
isolate persons with HIV infection or AIDS from
other individuals in the educational or work set-
ting. Furthermore, the university supports the
continued participation, to the fullest extent rea-
sonably possible, of these individuals in the
campus educational/work environment.
It is also the policy of the university to pro-
vide education that seeks to prevent the spread
of HIV infection. Those at risk for HIV infection
are encouraged to get tested; those who are
infected are urged to seek treatment. With cur-
rent advances in HIV/AIDS treatment, early
intervention can be crucial to maintaining well-
being and delaying complications of the illness.

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 fraternities
and nineteen sororities have established chap-
ters at the university. The Interfraternity,
National Pan-Hellenic and Panhellenic Councils
are the governing bodies of all UF Greek organi-
zations. The Interfraternity Council supervises
the activities of the 25 NIC fraternities and is
composed of an executive board and the presi-
dent of each fraternity. The officially recognized
national fraternities at the university are Alpha
Epsilon Pi, Alpha Gamma Rho, Alpha Tau
Omega, Beta Theta Pi, Chi Phi, Delta Chi, Delta
Tau Delta, Kappa Alpha, Kappa Sigma, Lambda
Chi Alpha, Phi Delta Theta, Phi Kappa Tau, Phi
Sigma Kappa, Pi Kappa Alpha, Pi Kappa Phi, Pi
Lambda Phi, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Sigma Chi,
Sigma Nu, Sigma Phi Epsilon, Sigma Pi, Tau
Epsilon Phi, Tau Kappa Epsilon, Theta Chi and
Zeta Beta Tau.
The National Pan-Hellenic Council is the
umbrella organization for the seven tradition-

ally African-American fraternities and sororities
at the university. The NPHC is composed of an
executive board and the president of each
group. The NPHC fraternities at the university
are Alpha Phi Alpha, Kappa Alpha Psi, Omega
Psi Phi and Phi Beta Sigma. The NPHC sorori-
ties are Alpha Kappa Alpha, Sigma Gamma Rho
and Zeta Phi Beta.
Primary jurisdiction in sorority matters is
vested in the Panhellenic Council. The
Panhellenic Council is composed of an execu-
tive board and the president and Panhellenic
delegate of each of the university's sixteen
National Panhellenic Conference sororities. The
members of the Panhellenic Council are Alpha
Chi Omega, Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha Epsilon Phi,
Alpha Omicron Pi, Alpha Xi Delta, Chi Omega,
Delta Delta Delta, Delta Gamma, Delta Phi
Epsilon, Kappa Alpha Theta, Kappa Delta,
Kappa Kappa Gamma, Phi Mu, Pi Beta Phi,
Sigma Kappa and Zeta Tau Alpha.
In addition to the social fraternities and
sororities, there are approximately 220 honorary
or professional organizations and approxi-
mately 200 other special interest organizations.

Academic Honesty
In fall 1995 the University of Florida 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, the
College of Law Honor Committee and faculty.
Cheating: The improper taking or tendering
of any information or material which shall be
used to determine academic credit. Taking of
information includes, but is not limited to, copy-
ing graded homework assignments from another
student; working together with another individ-
ual(s) on a take-home test or homework when
not specifically permitted by the teacher; looking
or attempting to look at another student's paper
during an examination; looking or attempting to
look at text or notes during an examination when
not permitted. Tendering of information
includes, but is not limited to, giving your work
to another student to be used or copied; giving
someone answers to exam questions either when
the exam is being given or after taking an exam;
giving or selling a term paper or other written
materials to another student; sharing information
on a graded assignment.
Plagiarism: The attempt to represent the
work of another as the product of one's own
thought, whether the other's work is published
or unpublished, or simply the work of a fellow
student. Plagiarism includes, but is not limited
to, quoting oral or written materials without
citation on an exam, term paper, homework,
other written materials or oral presentations for
an academic requirement; submitting a paper
which was purchased from a term paper service
as your own work; submitting anyone else's
paper as your own work.
Bribery: The offering, giving, receiving or
soliciting of any materials, items or services of
value to gain academic advantage for yourself
or another.
Misrepresentation: Any act or omission
with intent to deceive a teacher for academic
advantage. Misrepresentation includes using
computer programs generated by another and
handing it in as your own work unless





STUDENT LIFE


expressly allowed by the teacher; lying to a
teacher to increase your grade; lying or misrep-
resenting facts when confronted with an allega-
tion of academic dishonesty.
Conspiracy: The planning or acting with
one or more persons to commit any form of aca-
demic dishonesty to gain academic advantage
for yourself or another.
Fabrication: The use of invented or fabri-
cated information, or the falsification of research
or other findings with the intent to deceive for
academic or professional advantage.

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;
University owned or controlled property;
Property or housing units assigned for
responsibility to the university, including,
but not limited to, fraternity and sorority
property;
Activities sponsored by the university;
Activities officially approved by the univer-
sity which are conducted by university char-
tered organizations; and
Activities occurring off campus as provided
in VI.

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
* Have an adviser present;


Be provided, prior to the proceeding, the
nature and source of the evidence which will
be used by the university; and
Be free from compulsory self-incrimination.
Students who are charged with more serious
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
Have an adviser present;
Question adverse witnesses;
Present evidence and witnesses relevent to
his/her defense;
Be provided, prior to the proceeding, the
nature and source of the evidence which will
be used by the university; and
Be free from compulsory self-incrimination.
In cases involving potential sanctions other
than suspension, expulsion 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 proceed in the student's
absence. For serious offenses which may involve
removal from housing, suspension or expulsion,
the hearing will be held only to preserve the evi-
dence.
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.

Suspension of Student Pending Hearing:
Violations of the Student Conduct Code, Section
V.A.(1)L. and V.A.(1)R., may result in immediate
suspension. If in the determination of the
Director of Student Judicial Affairs, the student
poses a significant danger of imminent and seri-
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
Director of Student Judicial Affairs, with
approval of the Vice President for Student
Affairs, may suspend the student pending a
hearing before the appropriate hearing body.
The hearing will take place within a reasonable
time after notification of the suspension.

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 judg-
ment of the Director of Student Judicial Affairs,
the continued presence of the student on campus
is likely to interfere with the educational process
or the orderly operation of the university; or the
continued presence of the student on campus is
likely to endanger the health, safety, or welfare
of the university community or is intimidating
or threatening to another individual within the
University Community; or the offense commit-
ted by the student is of such a serious nature as
to adversely affect the students 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 university 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 pro-
bation, 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 designated repre-
sentative 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 Student Conduct Code shall
be subject to sanctions commensurate with the
offense with consideration given to any aggra-
vating and mitigating circumstances. Sanctions
may include, but are not limited to, one or more
of the following sanctions, unless otherwise
expressly provided:
* Reprimand-The student is given formal writ-
ten notice and official recognition that the
behavior has violated institutional regula-
tions.
Conduct Probation-The student is deemed
not in good standing and cannot represent
the university on any athletic team other than
intramurals, hold an office in any student
organization registered with the university,
or represent the university in any extracurric-
ular activity or official function. The duration
of any probation period or any sanctions
imposed for the violation shall be in propor-
tion to the seriousness of the violation.
Loss of Privileges-Denial of specific univer-
sity privileges such as attendance at athletic
functions, unrestricted library use and resi-
dence hall visitation for a designated period
of time.
Suspension-The student is required to leave
the university for a given or indefinite period
of time, the termination of which shall
depend upon specified acts of the student's
own volition related to mitigation of the
offense committed. The student must comply
with all sanctions prior to readmission.
Expulsion-The student is permanently
deprived of his/her opportunity to continue
at the university in any status.
Restitution-The student is required to pay for
loss of or damages to university property,

in which the offense occurred for violations
of the academic honesty guidelines, but only
by the faculty member involved and upor
recommendation thereto, except as otherwise
provided in 6C1-4.017(3), F.A.C.

Intercollegiate Athletics
For each of the last seven years the
University of Florida has ranked among the
nation's five best collegiate athletic programs
and among the nation's 10 best for 13 straight
years, based on research conducted by USA
Today and the National Association of Collegiate
Directors of Athletics. Florida and UCLA are
the only schools to finish in the top 10 in
national all-sports rankings every year since
1983-84, while Florida, UCLA and Stanford are
the only schools in the nation to finish in the top
five in the nation over the past seven years.
On the strength of 10 Top 10 national fin-
ishes, highlighted by a national title by the
women's tennis team, the University of Florida
finished third in the 1995-96 Sears Directors'
Cup national all-sports competition. The third-
place finish is tops in school history.
The Directors' Cup program, conducted by
NACDA and sponsored by Sears, annually rec-
ognizes schools with the best overall sports per-
formances in an academic year. The all-sports
champion is determined by points awarded for
an institution's finish in up to 22 sports.
Fielding 17 athletic teams, Florida finished third
with 731.5 points. Stanford captured the title
while UCLA was second.
In addition to the women's NCAA tennis
title, nine other Gator teams finished in the top
10 of their respective sports in 1995-96: football
(2nd); baseball (3rd); women's indoor track &


field (4th); volleyball (5th); men's golf (6th);
women's swimming & diving (7th); gymnastics
(8th); women's golf (9th); men's swimming &
diving (10th).
The Gators also captured five Southeastern
Conference Championships in 1995-96, raising
its total to 33 since the 1990-91 academic year,
more than double any other conference school's
total over that time span. The Gators won SEC
crowns in football, volleyball, women's swim-
ming & diving, women's tennis and a share of
the baseball title.
Florida's five SEC titles led to a sweep of all
three SEC All-Sports titles for an unprecedented
third time. Prior to 1992, no school in SEC his-
tory captured both the men's and women's all-
sports trophies in the same year. Florida became
the first school to accomplish the feat in 1992
and has repeated it in 1993 and 1996.
Individually, 57 Gator athletes earned All-
America honors in 1995-96, and the Florida coach-
ing staff garnered five SEC Coach-of-the-Year
honors. Two Gator coaches were also recognized
with National-Coach-of-the-Year honors.
Florida was equally successful away from
the athletic arena in 1995-96, as 73 student-ath-
letes were named to the Southeastern
Conference's Academic Honor Roll. Florida
now has had 289 Academic Honor Roll recipi-
ents over the last four years-the best four-year
total in UF and SEC history. Since the 1980-81
year, UF student-athletes have accumulated 727
SEC Academic Honor Roll honors, the top total
in the SEC during that time span.
In addition, in an era when the NCAA esti-
mates 70 percent of Division I schools are losing
money on intercollegiate athletics, the Gator
athletic program continued to have an impact in
regard to university academic programs. Since
1988, the University Athletic Association has
contributed more than 10.5 million dollars to
the university to help fund academic endeavors.
Florida's athletic program also serves as a
focal point for the surrounding community and
beyond, as more than four million fans have
filed through the gates to attend UF sporting
events over the last five years. More than
800,000 fans attended 149 home events in
Gainesville in 1995-96.
In addition, the "Goodwill Gators"-a pro-
gram where UF student-athletes, coaches and
administrators take part in community-related
endeavors-was honored with a White House
Commendation for Volunteerism. Florida is a
member of the National Collegiate Association
of Athletics (NCAA) and competes in Division I
for all 18 athletic teams.
The Gators field eight men's teams and 10
women's sports. 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, softball, tennis, track & field and volleyball.
Florida competes in the Southeastern
Conference (SEC), a 12-member conference
divided into Eastern and Western Divisions.


Florida joins Georgia, Kentucky, South
Carolina, Tennessee and Vanderbilt in the
Eastern Division, while Alabama, Arkansas,
Auburn, Louisiana State, Mississippi and
Mississippi State constitute the Western
Division. Florida was a charter member of the
SEC in 1933.
In addition to fielding some of the best col-
lege athletes, the University of Florida can also
lay claim to some of the world's finest athletes,
who are showcased every four years at the
Olympic Games. Since 1968, spanning eight
Olympic Games, 82 Gator student-athletes have
represented 14 countries and claimed 50
medals-including 24 gold. Nineteen Gators
and one UF coach participated in the 1996
Olympics in Atlanta and captured three medals.
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 14 consecu-
tive years and among the country's top five for
five straight years.
Since 1986, Florida has had $45 million in
capital improvements, including two major
expansions of the football stadium, a multi-pur-
pose athletic fieldhouse and new tennis, track &
field and soccer, baseball, golf, soccer and swim-
ming 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. The O'Dome also serves as home
for the swimming & diving and gymnastic
teams.
Gators just love their sports, as there are 70
courts and outdoor playing fields on the
University of Florida campus, while the
O'Connell center and a state-of-art 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 drive 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.

Admissions
Application for admission to any undergrad-
uate college, school or division of the university
must be made to the Office of Admissions. 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: Freshman and transfer appli-
cants are encouraged to apply on the World
Wide Web: http://www.reg.ufl.edu/on-line/.
Otherwise, 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 appropriate college
and 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.

General Requirements
A summary of the general requirements for
admission or readmission to any college or divi-
sion of the university is given below:
* A $20 application fee for new applicants.
* 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.

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 fall freshmen score between 1170 and
1340 on the SAT. In addition, more than 50 per-
cent 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 suc-
cess in college, prospective applicants are urged
to discuss these data with their school coun-
selors 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 30. Applications for the fall class
received January 31 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





ADMISSIONS


colleges or other universities by transferring to
the university's upper division colleges in accor-
dance with admissions standards.
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.
Admission for Florida Residents
Minimum requirements for admission con-
sideration include:
* Graduation from a regionally accredited or
state approved secondary school or the
equivalent (G.E.D., etc.).

mic courses as computed by the University
of Florida. An overall C average, as com-
puted by the University of Florida, is also
required at each collegiate institution
attended. College deficiencies earned
through high school dual-enrollment pro-
grams will be reviewed individually.
A record of good conduct. Major or continu-
ing difficulty with school or other officials
may make an applicant ineligible regardless
of academic qualifications.

Meeting this index alone does not guarantee
admission to the university.


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 qualified
applicants exceeds the number'that the univer-
sity is permitted to enroll. An applicant's total
high school record including grades, test scores,
educational objective and pattern of courses com-
pleted, school recommendation 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.
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.
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 3.8 is
expected.
Results of either the SAT or ACT. 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.
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).
The university provides numerous opportu-
nities other than early admission to accelerate
graduation. For additional information, please
refer to the Academic Advising section of this
catalog.
Advance Housing Payment
Entering freshmen 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, the College
Level Examination Program (CLEP) and the
International Baccalaureate (IB) program. A stu-
dent entering the university offers a nationally
graded examination as evidence of completion
of a college-level course taken in high school.
Depending on the results, the student may
receive university credit or exemption from
such courses without credit. (Refer to Academic
Advising.)
Admission Offers with Outstanding
Credentials
Offers of admission with course work cur-
rently 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.
Who must apply as a Transfer Student:
Applicants who have attended any college or
university and earned at least 12 semester hours
of credit following graduation from high school,
or applicants who have earned 30 or more
semester hours while enrolled in a dual-enroll-
ment or early admission program.
When to Apply: Applications may be sub-
mitted up to one year in advance of the term you
wish to enter. 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 university calendar and consult
the individual college to which they intend to
apply for specific program information. (NOTE:
In a number of undergraduate programs, the
sequence of professional 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.
The colleges of the university have limited enroll-
ment quotas. Transfer applicants who meet the
minimum admission requirements will be
referred to the appropriate college for enrollment
consideration. Refer to the appropriate college's
section of this catalog for further information.
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 sec-
ondary school or 8-10 sequential 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. Additional tran-
scripts 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, a student
who has failed to maintain 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 parallel the curriculum
at the University of Florida.
Applicants for admission to degree pro-
grams 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) or
an approved alternative to be admitted in a
degree-seeking status.


Applicants seeking admission to a program
in teacher education must submit SAT or ACT
scores. 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 appli-
cants 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.
Within space and fiscal limitations, appli-
cants who have satisfied the above minimum
requirements will be considered for admission
at the junior level. Such students may be
required to take additional preprofessional
courses not completed at the junior college.
However, such courses will not reduce the num-
ber of credits required at this university.
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 as a Freshman or Sophomore -
The number of spaces available for students
transferring with fewer than 60 hours credit is
extremely limited, so limited that very few are
accepted. Students are encouraged to remain at
their Florida community college until comple-
tion of the Associate of Arts degree or to trans-
fer to a Florida community college to complete
the A.A. degree.
* An applicant must have been eligible for
admission to the University of Florida as a
beginning freshman to be considered for
admission as a transfer student. (See section,
Admission as a Freshman.)
An applicant must be in good standing and
eligible to return to any institution previ-
ously attended. A student who for any rea-
son would not be allowed to return to an
institution previously attended cannot be
considered for admission to UF.
An applicant must have an average of C or
higher (as computed by the University of
Florida) on all work attempted at each insti-
tution previously attended. No application
can be considered until complete official
transcripts of all undergraduate work are in
the possession of the Office of Admissions.
An applicant must present a satisfactory
conduct record. Regardless of other qualifi-
cations, an applicant who has experienced
serious or continuing difficulty with school
or other authorities because of improper
conduct may find his or her application dis-
approved.
Admission as a Junior or Senior -
Transfer applicants with 60 or more hours'
credit must satisfy the requirements listed
above (with the exception of the first asterisk)
for admission as a freshman or sophomore


transfer. Applicants seeking admission to a pro-
gram 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 quo-
tas require applicants to submit test scores as a
part of their selection process. When test scores
are required, the applicant will be advised
directly by that college. In addition, the follow-
ing requirements also must be satisfied:
* An applicant must present a minimum of 60
semester hours (or 90 quarter hours) of
acceptable college courses, not more than
four semester hours of which are in military
science and/or basic required physical edu-
cation, as credit for advanced standing.
An applicant must present transcripts verify-
ing completion of the courses (or acceptable
substitutes) required for admission by the
college. (See appropriate college section of
this catalog.) Upon recommendation by the
college, an applicant lacking some of the
course requirements may be permitted to
enroll in that college and to complete those
courses if all other requirements for admis-
sion are met; however, such 1-2000 level
courses will not reduce the number of cred-
its required for a degree.
Applicants for admission 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):
Applicants admitted in a degree-seeking sta-
tus who have had the opportunity to take the
CLAST, MUST have completed it (or its
approved alternative) satisfactorily. Students
with fewer than 96 semester hours who are
transferring from private colleges in Florida
or from out-of-state colleges who have not
had the opportunity to take the test, MUST
have satisfied the CLAST requirement by the
end of the first term of enrollment.
Applicants with 96 or more hours of transfer-
able credit must have satisfied the CLAST
requirement prior to admission.
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, AP, IB
* Sat II: Scores on the SAT II are the basic cri-
teria 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 foreign lan-
guages listed below. Students may substi-
tute AP or IB credit earned in the junior year
for any of the SAT II exams.





ADMISSIONS


Consult the Academic Advising section of
this catalog for scores and university course
equivalents charts and information on appropri-
ate course selections. Students can also consult
the Schedule of Courses, the Academic
Advising Center or individual departments.
Newly admitted students must take SAT II
tests by January of the senior year in high
school. 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 examinations or
their AP/IB counterparts.
UF Course Required SAT II Exam
ANY English course Writing
Calculus or higher Mathematics, Level 1-C
Chemistry Chemistry
French 2 or higher French (reading only)
German 2 or higher German (reading only)
Latin 2 or higher Latin
Spanish 2 or higher Spanish (reading only)
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.
Freshmen heading toward a pre-medi-
cine, pre-dentistry, pre-veterinary medicine,
engineering or hard science college curricu-
lum will be required to submit SAT II scores
in chemistry and/or mathematics level II-C
prior to registering for UF courses.
AP or IB scores: An AP or IB score may sub-
stitute for an SAT II score for placement pur-
poses. 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.
Mathematics placement: 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 place-
ment into MAC 3233 or MAC 3311.
Chemistry placement: Students wishing to
enroll in CHM 2040 or 2045 must present
suitable SAT II, AP or IB scores.
Writing (composition course) placement: 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 ENC 1102 or 1145, ENG 1131,
CRW 1101 or 1301, or any 2000-level English
course. (Students in prior catalog years have
a different general education composition
requirement.)


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 estab-
lished for the term. Some departments have
found it necessary to establish deadlines for the
receipt of applications and their supporting
records that are earlier than the deadlines estab-
lished for the university and published in the
catalog. All applicants are advised to refer to the
application deadlines section of the university
calendar published in this catalog and to verify
department deadlines with the appropriate
department.
Postbaccalaureate students may wish to
enroll in courses for any of the following reasons:
* 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 meeting minimum
requirements 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 considered official unless it is
received directly from the registrar of the insti-
tution 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.
Minimum Requirements for Admission
Consideration:
* A recognized baccalaureate (or higher)
degree from a regionally accredited college
or university.
A minimum grade point average of C (2.0)
on all junior and senior year undergraduate
work, as computed by the University of
Florida.
A minimum score of 550 on the Test of
English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), if
English is not your native language.
A satisfactory conduct record; major or con-
tinuing difficulty with school or other offi-
cials may deem an applicant ineligible,
regardless of academic qualifications.

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, some departments encourage the
applicant to submit scores on one or more
advanced subject tests of the GRE. All scores
will be considered.







Graduate Study in Business Administra-
tion: Students applying for admission to the
Graduate School for study in the Warrington
College of Business Administration or the Fisher
School of Accounting may substitute satisfac-
tory 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 satisfactory scores on the GMAT.
Applicants should contact the Educational
Testing Service, Princeton, NJ 08540, for addi-
tional information.
Graduate Study in Law: Students applying
to the graduate program leading to the Master
of Laws in Taxation must submit 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 until requisite
examination scores or final grade records are
available. Students also may be granted condi-
tional admission to pursue graduate work at the
university if previous grade records or GRE
scores are on the borderline of acceptability or
when specific prerequisite courses are required.
Students granted conditional admission
should be notified by the department of the 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 not be able to register.
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 earned one
year or more of academic course work at a
United States college or university do not
need to submit TOEFL scores, but they must
submit satisfactory scores on the GRE before
their application for admission can be con-
sidered.
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.


ADMISSIONS


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-





ADMISSIONS


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
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.
Graduate 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 July 1 from the Office of the Dean for
Students and Instruction, College of Veterinary
Medicine. The application forms must be
received by the Veterinary Medical Center
Application Service by October 1 for the appli-
cant to be considered for admission.
Candidates seeking admission to programs
leading to the Master of Science or Doctor of
Philosophy degree with emphasis on animal
disease problems should apply through the

Admission Information for
Veterans Administration and
Social Security Benefits
The University of Florida is approved for the
education and training of veterans under all
public laws now in effect, i.e., Chapter 31, Title
38, U.S. Code (Disabled Veterans), Chapter 32,
Title 38, U.S. Code (Veterans Educational
Assistance Program), Chapter 34, Title 38, U.S.
Code (Cold War G.I. Bill), and Chapter 35, Title
38, U.S. Code (Children of Deceased or Disabled

educational benefits under any Veterans
Administration (VA) program are urged to con-
tact their local VA representative as soon as they
are accepted by the university. Students expect-
ing to receive benefits under one of these pro-
grams must file an application for benefits with
the Office of the University Registrar. No certifi-


cation can be made until the application is on
file. Benefits are determined by the Veterans
Administration; the university certifies accord-
ing to VA rules and regulations.
Inquiries relating to social security benefits
should be directed to the student's local Social
Security Office. The Office of the University
Registrar will submit enrollment certificates
issued by the Social Security Administration for
students eligible to receive educational benefits
under the Social Security Act, providing the
undergraduate student registers for 12 semester
hours or more.
A full-time load for VA or social security ben-
efits is 12 hours per semester for undergraduates.

ADMISSIONS


TOEFL information and registration forms
are available in many locations outside the
United States; usually at U.S. embassies and
consulates, at offices of the United States
Information Agency, from U.S. educational
commissions and foundations, at Binational
Centers, and from many private organizations
such as the Institute of International Education
(HE), America-Mideast Education and Training
Services, Inc. (AMIDEAST), African American
Institute (AAI), and the American-Korean
Foundation. Candidates who cannot obtain
information locally on TOEFL, GRE, GMAT,
SAT or LSAT should write: Educational Testing
Service, Princeton, NJ 08540, U.S.A.
Application Fee
Each application for admission must be
accompanied by a nonrefundable application
fee of $20 (U.S. currency and drawn on a U.S.
bank). An application will not be processed
without the application fee. If you find it diffi-
cult to submit the application fee because of cur-
rency restrictions in your country, we suggest
that you request a friend or relative in the
United States to submit the fee on your behalf.
Academic Records
Consideration of an application for admis-
sion cannot be given until ALL required creden-
tials as indicated in the section Apply for
Admission are received by the Office of
Admissions. All documents must be accompa-
nied by certified English translations and
become the property of the university.
Credentials of applicants who do not enroll will
be destroyed and cannot be returned or for-
warded elsewhere.
IMPORTANT: Send all applications and
credentials to the Office of Admissions, P. O.
Box 2946, University of Florida, Gainesville,
Florida 32602-2946, U.S.A.
Notice of Admission
If a student's application for admission to
the university is approved, an official notice of.
acceptance will be sent by the university.
Admission is for a SPECIFIC term. If a student
is unable to enroll for the term indicated in the
notice of acceptance, the Office of Admissions
should be informed immediately. If the student
wishes to be considered for entrance to a differ-
ent term, the Office of Admissions must be
advised. Under no circumstances should an
applicant make definite plans to depart for


Gainesville until officially notified by the uni-
versity that approval has been given to the
application for admission. A student who comes
to campus without first receiving an official
notice of acceptance does so entirely at his or
her own risk. The student's presence on campus
will not influence the decision on an application
for admission. Because of the limited resources
available in terms of faculty, staff, and physical
facilities, only those international students who
submit superior academic records can be
approved for admission.

Readmissions
Application for Readmission
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 Readmission: 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.
All readmission applicants, regardless of
level, must meet the current admission
requirements of the college or school they
expect to enter. Readmission is not guaran-
teed and is subject to the availability of space
at the appropriate level in the desired col-
lege or major. (Consult the appropriate col-
lege section of the catalog for specific admis-
sion 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.








Academic Regulations

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





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

Classification Explanation

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

2 Students who have earned 30
credits or more, but fewer
than 60 credits.

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

5 Students who are candidates
for a degree in a program
which normally requires 10
semesters and who have
earned 120 credits or more.
6 Postbaccalaureate students:
Degree-holding students who
have been admitted to post-
baccalaureate status.
7 Graduate students seeking a
first master's degree.

8 Graduate students who have
earned a master's degree, or
who have earned 36 or more
credits while seeking a grad-
uate degree, but who have
not been admitted to doctoral
candidacy.
9 Graduate students who have
been admitted to doctoral
candidacy.


College Level Academic Skills Test
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 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
degrees and are seeking admission to programs
in state universities in Florida. Transfer students
who do not satisfactorily complete the test (or
its approved alternative) will not be admitted.
CLAST also applies to students transferring to
Florida state universities from Florida private
colleges and out-of-state colleges.
Transfer students with fewer than 96 semes-
ter hours must have satisfied the CLAST
requirement by the end of the first term of
enrollment. Transfer applicants with more than
96 hours must have satisfied the CLAST
requirement prior to admission.
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 awarding of the A.A. certificate and regis-
tration for UF course work after earning 60
hours are contingent upon satisfaction of
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.
Students have the right to review their own
educational records for information and to
determine accuracy. A photo I.D. or other
equivalent documentation or personal recogni-
tion by the custodian 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 presenta-
tion of proof of the student's dependent status.

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 hear
their grades.
Transcripts: Upon written request, the uni-
versity will provide academic transcripts for
any student who has attended this university.
The charge for each transcript is $5. To reflect a
complete academic record for undergraduate,
graduate and professional students, the univer-
sity will issue only complete transcripts.

Transfer Credit Policy
Students may transfer a total of 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 uni-
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 3-4000 level courses.
Credit for 1-2000 level courses will be
recorded on the student'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 at the
junior-senior level at UF to earn a degree.
Courses completed with grades of D or
higher at other regionally accredited degree-
granting institutions which reasonably parallel
the curriculum at this university will be
accepted for transfer credit as hours earned. It is
the prerogative of the student's college to deter-
mine how transfer credit satisfies the specific
degree's course requirements. Students are
required to submit final official transcripts from
all institutions attended prior to or during their
enrollment at UF. Failure to declare attendance
at another institution can invalidate admission
to 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 that is offered at UF.





ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


Auditing Courses: Auditing may be
approved on a space-available basis. In addition
to the payment of course fees, the approvals of
the instructor and dean 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.
Correspondence Work: A student will not
be permitted to register for and work on corre-
spondence courses while enrolled at the univer-
sity unless special permission is obtained from
their college. The student must be in good aca-
demic standing and may not apply more than
six semester hours of correspondence credit
toward a university degree.

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
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 established 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
their college for an additional drop.
Approval to drop a course must be obtained
from the student's college.
After the deadline students may petition to
drop a course provided they can document
sufficient reason to drop, usually hardship
or medical condition occurring after the
deadline.
Failure to attend a class does not constitute a
drop.

Withdrawals
Withdrawal is the formal process of drop-
ping all courses in a term. Students who with-
draw after drop/add and prior to the deadline
for withdrawal will receive a grade of W for
courses. Any student who withdraws after the
deadline will be assigned grades of WF in all
courses and will be subject to suspension regu-
lations. Students who leave UF without offi-
cially withdrawing 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 at 392-1261 to begin with-
drawal procedures.


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 nonde-
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 full-time 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, nonde-
gree 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.






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.





ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


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.
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 official class
rolls/addenda to instructors.
Students who do not attend at least one of
the first two class meetings of a course or labora-
tory 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 stu-
dents dropped from courses or laboratories by
posting a notice in the department office.
Students may request reinstatement on a space-
available basis if documented evidence excusing
the absence is presented to the department chair.
NOTE: Students must not assume that they
are dropped automatically if they fail to attend
the first few days of class.
The university recognizes the right of the
individual professor to make attendance
mandatory. After due warning, professors may
prohibit further attendance and subsequently
assign a failing grade for excessive absences.

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.

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.

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.

Examination Policies
Final examinations are determined by course
meeting times, except for certain large courses.
No student is required to take more than three
exams in one day. Should that occur, the higher-
numbered courses take priority.
During-term examinations may be held dur-
ing the regular class time or Monday-Friday
(M,T,W,R,F) from 7:00-9:45 p.m. (periods E1-E2)
for the summer terms and Monday-Friday from
8:20-10:10 p.m. (periods E2-E3) for the fall and
spring terms. If other classes are scheduled dur-
ing an exam time, instructors must provide
make-up class work for students who miss class
because of an assembly exam.
If two exams are scheduled at the same time,
assembly exams take priority over time-of-class
exams. When two assembly exams or two time-
of-class exams conflict, the course with the
higher number will take priority. Instructors
giving make-up exams will make the necessary
adjustments.





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.

Note: I* or N* grades recorded on the stu-
dent record indicate the nonpunitive initial-
term receipt of an I or NG. A grade of I* or N*
is not considered a failing grade for the term in
which it is received, and it is not computed in
the grade point average; however, if the I* or
N* has not been changed by the end of the next
term for which the student is enrolled, it will be
counted as a failing grade and used in 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, 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-





ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


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
B+= 3.5
B = 3.0
C+= 2.5


C = 2.0
D+= 1.5
D =1.0

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.
Students who entered UF with credit for AP or
IB courses who then repeat the equivalent
course at UF will receive a grade for the UF
course and no credit for the prior work.
Outcomes when repeated course work in-
volves only University of Florida course work:

Grades received at other institutions will not
be averaged with grades received at the
University of Florida. Repeat course work
taken at the University of Florida will result in
calculation of only the UF grade in the UF grade
point average, with credit earned only once.
Outcomes when repeated course work in-
volves transfer course work and UF course
work:

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


Satisfactory-Unsatisfactory (S-U)
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. Once the S-U Option is approved, stu-
dents may not convert to a letter grade.
Students should note that other academic insti-
tutions 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
academic probation. To elect the S-U Option,
students must obtain the approvals indicated on
the form. 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 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.







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 at the univer-
sity, even if on probation.
Colleges may choose not to consider stu-
dents for admission to and may deny continua-
tion in a degree program if they fail to maintain
reasonable academic progress, as specified by
the college or department.
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 and suspension regulations
that apply to undergraduate students also apply
to postbaccalaureate students. All actions taken
to enforce these regulations shall be reflected by





ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


notations on the student's academic record;
some of these notations can be permanent.

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
presented to the Office of the University
Registrar, which will refer them to the
University Senate Committee on Student
Petitions. Petitions approved by the committee
will become part of the student's permanent
record.
Detailed information on petition procedures
is available from the student's college or from
the Office of the University Registrar.
The student seeking waiver of a regulation
through petition must remember that no com-
mittee on petitions can direct an instructor to
change a student's grade, nor can the Senate
Committee require any college or school to
grant a degree by waiving any of these regula-
tions.

Ombudsman
The office of the ombudsman was estab-
lished by the state legislature. The purpose of the
ombudsman is to assist students in resolving
problems and conflicts. The office provides an
informal avenue of redress for students' prob-
lems and grievances which arise in the course of
interacting with the institution. By considering
problems in an unbiased way, the ombudsman
works to achieve a fair resolution and works to
protect the rights of all parties involved.
When an academic regulation appears to
result in undue hardship, students may petition
for waiver of the regulation. If a student wishes
to appeal a decision of the University Senate
Committee on Student Petitions, he/she may do
so to the university ombudsman in 135 Tigert
Hall. An appointment can be made by calling
(352) 392-1308.

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 counsel-
ing; and to give students whose ultimate suc-
cess 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 will 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.

Suspension
Academic suspension from the university
denies registration privileges to students who
could not graduate if they continued at their
current level of academic achievement.
Academic suspensions identify students whose
performance indicates that they will not fulfill
graduation requirements and encourages stu-
dents to leave the university to investigate other
alternatives as soon as a high probability of fail-
ure is evident.
* Students with a grade point deficit of 15 or
more in their University of Florida course
work shall be suspended from the university
for a minimum of one term and their
advance registration 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.


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.
The following requirements apply to
undergraduate 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 graduation. 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 institu-
tion, provided they maintain continuous enroll-
ment (registration for and completion of at least
one course for one term in an academic year).
Students who do not maintain continuous
enrollment will be assigned the catalog in effect
at the time enrollment is resumed. Students
with the approval of their college dean's office
may opt to graduate under the requirements of
a later catalog, but they must fulfill all gradua-
tion 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 recom-
mended by the faculty.





ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


College Level Academic Skills Test
Students seeking 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 continuously enrolled.
Curriculum Requirements
Students must complete all program require-
ments established by their college, major
department and minor program of study (if
applicable). Minors are awarded only in con-
junction with the receipt of a baccalaureate
degree.
Diploma Replacement Fee
Each diploma ordered subsequent to a stu-
dent's initial degree application 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 correspondence study.
* Students may take a maximum of 12 exten-
sion credits during any academic year.
Students may not take more than 9 extension
credits during a semester.
No more than 12 of the last 36 credits neces-
sary for a baccalaureate degree may be
extension work.
Simultaneous registration in on-campus and
extension work requires approval of the
dean of the college.
No more than one-fourth of the total credit
required for a degree may be extension
work.
Consult the appropriate section of this cata-
log or consult the dean of the college for fur-
ther information.
Foreign Language Requirement
Students seeking a degree must satisfy the
university and department or college (if any)
foreign language requirements. 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 proficiency. 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 cred-
its, 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 (Communi-
cation and Computation Requirement) in the
Academic Advising section.


Grade Point Average
To graduate, students must have a C aver-
age (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 requirements, in addition to
these minimums, are listed in each college's sec-
tion.
Pending Charge of Academic Dishonesty or
Student Conduct Violation
No degree will be conferred if a charge of
academic dishonesty or conduct violation is
pending if the penalty could be suspension,
expulsion, failing grade or any combination of
the above, until 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 completion of a subse-
quent 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 programs sponsored by the
University of Florida counts toward satisfaction
of the summer term enrollment requirement.







Academic Advising

Mission

The University of Florida is committed to
quality academic advising for all students. The
academic advising mission is to assist students
in the attainment of their educational goals.
Academic advising is available to help students
coordinate their educational program and career
objectives commensurate with their abilities.
University Responsibilities: The faculty,
administration and staff of the University of
Florida share a responsibility to provide accu-
rate information and effective advisement to
students. The University of Florida, through the
Office of the Provost, is responsible for provid-
ing students, faculty and other advising staff
with accurate information in the catalog, sched-
ule of courses and other publications.
The university, through the Academic
Advising Center, is responsible for acting as an
information and referral center to provide fac-
ulty advisers and students with timely and
accurate information on university-wide
requirements, policies, procedures and referrals
to appropriate services.
College/School and Department Responsibili-
ties: The dean of each college or school ulti-
mately is responsible for ensuring that adequate
advisement is available and accessible to all stu-
dents within the college or school.
Student Responsibilities: Students ultimately
are responsible for knowing and fulfilling all
university, college and major requirements for
graduation, as stated in the catalog.

Universal Tracking
UF has implemented a Universal Tracking
Program that provides each student with a
detailed plan for graduation. This tracking audit
includes information on what the student has
already accomplished academically and what


I -T


the student needs to accomplish in order to
graduate.
Each fall and spring semester a student
receives an updated tracking report on progress
toward the degree. This tracking audit identifies
the courses and requirements that should be
completed each semester. Thus, universal track-
ing helps students stay on-track for graduation
from the University of Florida.
A student's academic classification at the
university reflects the college from which the
student intends to graduate. Early affiliation
with a college enables the university to provide
the best academic advising possible from the
college offering the major. Universal tracking
also provides information to help students
select a different college if there is continued
academic difficulty meeting the requirements
for the current major.
If the tracking audit indicates difficulty stay-
ing on-track or meeting the requirements for the
major, the college will require an appointment
with an academic adviser. The university's goal
is to help students get back on-track for their
major or help them to change the major.
Universal tracking is designed to ensure that
each student graduates from the university in as
effective and efficient a manner as possible.
Universal tracking identifies all the required
courses for any major so that students know in
advance the courses to take each term and so
the university can arrange to have seats avail-
able in all required courses.
The universal tracking system is available
on-line. This feature allows students to match
their academic records to the degree require-
ments of other majors so that they can consider
other degree options and determine what
courses they would have to take if they changed
majors.

Credit by Examination (AP, IB,
CLEP) and Course Equivalents
Charts for Placement
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. Students
beginning in the fall or spring term must have
taken all CLEP exams before enrolling or, at the
latest, prior to the end of the first term of enroll-
ment at the university; students who begin in
the summer must have taken the exam(s) prior
to the end of their first fall term.
Advanced Placement Program
Under this program, a student entering the
university offers an examination score as evi-
dence of completion of a college-level course
taken in high school. If the results of the exami-
nation meet the requirements listed below, the
student may receive university 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
student's permanent record.
Credit (AP or IB) 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.
AP English, history, art history, government
and politics, music theory and psychology
count toward Gordon Rule communication.
AP mathematics, statistics and computer
science count toward Gordon Rule computa-
tion.
AP French, Spanish, German, and Latin ful-
fill the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences lan-
guage requirement.
Students who will continue their study of
biology, chemistry, math and physics should
consult an academic adviser for placement.

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
College 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 placement 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.

General Education

The general education program offers stu-
dents an opportunity to develop as individuals
and as members of society and to gain an
appreciation of the world around them. The
program's goals are to introduce students to
the major areas of academic study and to help
students 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. Writing
is a mode of thinking that involves making
choices and ordering those choices effectively.
Courses in composition can be found pri-
marily in the English department.


Mathematical Sciences (M)
Mathematical sciences courses teach skills
in logic, inductive and deductive reasoning, and
abstract and quantitative thinking. The mathe-
matical sciences also teach students to reason
critically, think creatively, assess evidence and
form conclusions. Courses in mathematical sci-
ences can be found in the departments of math-
ematics, statistics, computer & information sci-
ences, philosophy, aerospace engineering and
mechanics & engineering science.
Humanities (H)
Familiarity with various forms of the arts
provides students with an appreciation of the
human condition and the cultural and artistic
values of others. By exploring the nature of his-
tory, 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.
Courses in this area can be found exten-
sively, although not exclusively, in the depart-
ments of African and Asian languages & litera-
tures, Afro-American studies, anthropology,
architecture, astronomy, art, botany, classics,
engineering, English, fine arts, geography,







Germanic and Slavic languages & literatures,
history, Jewish studies, music, philosophy, reli-
gion, romance languages & literatures and
women's studies.
Social and Behavioral Sciences (S)
Students explore human behavior in its
social context, analyze the structure of societies,
cultures and institutions, and assess the
processes by which individuals and groups allo-
cate resources.
Courses in this area can be found exten-
sively, although not exclusively, in the depart-
ments of African and Asian languages & litera-
tures, agriculture, anthropology, architecture,
criminology, economics, education, exercise sci-
ence, food & resource economics, geography,
health science, linguistics, recreation, political
science, psychology, religion, sociology,
telecommunication and women's studies.
Physical (P) and Biological (B) Sciences
Courses in physical and biological sciences
introduce students to the basic concepts of sci-
ence and the scientific method and enhance stu-
dent awareness of scientific developments and
their impact on society and the environment.
Courses in this area can be found exten-
sively, although not exclusively, in the depart-
ments of agronomy, anthropology, astronomy,
botany, chemistry, entomology & nematology,
environmental engineering, forestry, geogra-
phy, plant pathology, soil and water science,
wildlife ecology and zoology.
International Studies and Diversity Focus (I)
This requirement makes 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 helps them
develop an appreciation for diversity through
the study of nations, gender, culture, race, eth-
nicity and class.
Six credits of course work must have an
international and/or diversity focus. These
courses will always be in combination with a
course that fulfills another category.
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."

Areas and Credit Requirements
For General Education
Areas: Credits:
University Foundations
Composition (C) 3
Mathematical Sciences (M) 6
Humanities (H) 9
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).


** As dictated by the requirements of their
majors, students may increase their hours in
humanities, social and behavioral sciences,
and physical and biological sciences by three
hours (for a total of 12 hours in that category)
and take only six hours in either of the other
two 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. Some majors
require specific general education courses. Refer
to your major's semester-by-semester tracks for
specific information.

Preprofessional Programs
PreLaw Programs
While any undergraduate specialization will
prepare a student for law school, the beginning
law student must possess the fundamental skills
necessary for effective oral and written commu-
nication. The student who lacks writing skills
should study advanced English composition.
Any course that tests one's ability to organize a
body of data and reason from it will be beneficial.


ACADEMIC ADVISING


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 clear-
inghouse for information and LSAT/LSDAS
materials relating to prelaw preparation and
application procedures. The office serves as a
central office for collecting and forwarding let-
ters 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 2211-2211L or
CHM 3216 and 3216L. (Some institutions
require one semester of biochemistry.)
At least eight semester credits in biology
(usually BSC 2010-2010L and BSC 2011-
2011L).
A complete physics sequence (terminat-
ing with PHY 2054 and 2056L or PHY
3041).
One year of college mathematics with
one term of analytic geometry and calcu-
lus (MAC 2311) and at least one semester
of statistics (STA 3023) are recom-
mended.
One year of college-level English.






ACADEMIC ADVISING


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 at the junior/senior level must be
certain that they also are making satisfactory
progress toward their major.
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 acade-
mic performance. After admission to the uni-
versity, invitations are sent to all students who
have scored 1350 (test taken after March 1995)
or above on the Scholastic Aptitude Test or 30
composite on the Enhanced American College
Test. Further, they must have an academic high
school grade point average of not less than 3.8
as computed by the university. These students
are eligible for special honors classes and hous-
ing 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 aver-
age of 3.0.
Students who do not qualify may apply for
admission into the program after demonstrating
their academic capabilities during the fall
semester of their first year. Honors require-
ments are not in addition to general education
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 and oral presenta-
tions in class.
Students who fulfill the requirements of the
honors program with a 3.0 overall average, sat-
isfy the general education requirement and have
60 semester hours of credit will receive the
Associate of Arts certificate with honors. Those
with a 3.5 overall grade point average will
receive the certificate with high honors.
After the sophomore year, the honors pro-
gram becomes the responsibility of the depart-
ment in which the student pursues the major
course of study.
Honors programs within each college lead to
the baccalaureate degree with honors, high hon-
ors or highest honors. For graduation with hon-
ors, high honors or highest honors, please refer
to the appropriate college section.

Overseas Studies
Overseas Studies, within the Office of
International Studies and Programs, offers UF
students the opportunity to study in a wide
range of academic and cultural settings. The
office coordinates 32 semester- and year-long
programs, and 28 summer programs in 24 coun-
tries. The diverse subject areas available to

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. As evidence
of the Fisher School's success in achieving its
goals, the school's degree programs are consis-
tently ranked in the top ten in the nation by var-
ious academic and professional surveys. Most
recently (1996) the graduate and undergraduate
programs were ranked fifth 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 concen-
tration for the Ph.D. in business administration.
A program of studies leading to the joint award-
ing 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 20 faculty
members, and they have earned Ph.D. degrees
from the nation's leading universities. 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.

Florida Accounting Association
The Florida Accounting Association (FAA) is
a student accounting organization whose pur-
pose is to encourage professional career devel-
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 2021C.

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. As evidence
of the Fisher School's success in achieving its
goals, the school's degree programs are consis-
tently ranked in the top ten in the nation by var-
ious academic and professional surveys. Most
recently (1996) the graduate and undergraduate
programs were ranked fifth 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 concen-
tration for the Ph.D. in business administration.
A program of studies leading to the joint award-
ing 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 20 faculty
members, and they have earned Ph.D. degrees
from the nation's leading universities. 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

COLLEGES


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
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 major upon entering the University
of Florida will automatically be classified as
accounting students. This classification will
remain as long as the student meets continua-
tion requirements described below.
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.

Continuation Policies for Native Students
Freshman and sophomore students who
have selected an accounting major must comply
with the following to remain in the program:.
1. Students must complete ACG 2021C with a
grade of B by completion of 60 credit hours.
2. Students will be allowed two attempts,
including drops, to achieve a B grade in
ACG 2021C.
3. Comply with all universal tracking provi-
sions.
4. Students must maintain a minimum 3.0
overall GPA.*
* Upon satisfactory completion of all freshman
and sophomore year requirements, including
general education, preprofessional, CLAST
and AA degree, the student will shift from a
continuation status (3.0 required GPA) to a
retention status (2.0 required GPA).

Undergraduate Transfer 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 to the
Applicant Pool
A student will be considered for admission
into the Fisher School if the following are met:
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 19
semester hours of preprofessional course
work. Although a student will be considered
for admission with the 12 preprofessional
credit hours (described below) completed, all
preprofessional courses are prerequisites for
3-4000 level courses. Not having all 19 credit
hours completed upon admission will delay
progress towards graduation.
The following preprofessional courses must
be completed at the time of application:
ACG 2021C Introduction to Financial Accounting,
or its equivalent,
With grade of B.


* If a series of courses is completed as equiva-
lent to ACG 2021C, then a B must be achieved
in each course.
MAC 2233 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 2233 requirement.
* For students who have taken calculus at state
institutions in Florida, the MAC 2233 course
requirement may be met by satisfactory com-
pletion of MAC 1311, 2311 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 2531 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 3.0 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. 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 for
UF students apply equally to transfer students





ACCOUNTING


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 a 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 standards 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 institutions or applicants who have not com-
pleted their A.A. and CLAST are not guaranteed
admission into the Fisher School of Accounting.
These students will be considered on a case-by-
case basis and will be admitted selectively when
space permits. Prospective accounting students
attending other four-year institutions should fol-
low a course of study similar to the general edu-
cation and preprofessional requirements taken
by freshmen and sophomores 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 60
semester hours may be transferred. More than
60 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
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.
Universal Tracking
It is the students' responsibility to be aware
of their academic requirements. They will be
mailed a universal tracking audit each semester
that lists all of the requirements for their partic-
ular program and indicates whether or not the
student has met each requirement. Students
should pay close attention to these audits and
should, at a minimum, seek assistance 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 preprofessional, accounting or
business core course work at any other institu-
tion.


Students who have taken 3-4000 level
courses at accredited universities prior to enter-
ing the Fisher School should submit course sub-
stitution forms to the school. Substitutions for
required 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
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
courses counted as electives. Courses taken to
satisfy preparatory course or degree require-
ments 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.
6. The student does not comply with the fresh-
men and sophomore continuation policies.
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).
Students not in the Fisher School of
Accounting who register for 3-4000 level
accounting courses must comply with both
items one and two above or they will be denied
further registration in accounting courses.






COLLEGES


Undergraduate Drop Policies
Freshman and sophomore students may
drop a maximum of two courses. Unused drops
do not transfer to junior and senior standing.
Junior and senior students are permitted to
drop a maximum of two courses.
The drop policy applies to all drops taken at
the University of Florida regardless of whether
the student 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:


The student will have more than 30 hours
left to graduate from the Fisher School upon
completion of such courses.
The student obtains the advance approval of
the assistant director,

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 courses taken in
excess of 60 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
2021C), 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
junior and senior level course work and all
major course work. Only course work taken at
the University of Florida will be included in
those computations.
* Junior and senior level course work shall
include all course work in excess of 60 semes-
ter 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:

COLLEGES


Freshman Students
Any student classified as a first semester
freshman at the University of Florida will be
admitted to the College of Agriculture when
they declare a major within the B.S. or B.S.F.RC.
degree programs. At that time, their college
classification will become FY or AG. These stu-
dents will maintain the FY or AG classification
as long as they continue to meet or exceed the
universal tracking criteria for the major.
Students who fall below the minimum progres-
sion standards for their major will not be
allowed to continue in the major. These stu-
dents need to meet with an academic adviser
within the college in order to determine an
alternative major. Freshman AG & FY students
should take the CLAST in the second semester.

Students Other Than Freshmen
All UF students other than first semester
freshmen must make a formal application for
admission to a major in the College of
Agriculture in 2002 McCarty Hall. Students will
be admitted to their desired majors if they are
on track based on the universal tracking criteria
published in the catalog. Performance in and
completion of courses in math, biology, chem-
istry and physics in the first four semesters of
the curriculum are the primary criteria for
determining admission to a major. Require-
ments for admission will vary depending upon
majors; therefore, it is important to complete all
requirements identified for the major.
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 to assist
students in preparing for interviews and finding
appropriate employment. The college also spon-
sors an annual Agriculture and Natural
Resources Career Day in February.
Scholarships
The college and its academic units provide
approximately $375,000 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 Honor Society
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, natural resources and life sci-
ences. Its purpose is to promote high achieve-
ment and to recognize 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 personal-
ity. The objectives of Alpha Zeta are to foster
high standards of scholarship, character, leader-
ship and a spirit of fellowship among its mem-
bers, and to the further development of food,
agriculture, natural resources and life sciences.

Universal Tracking and Academic
Progression Standards
All applicants must have completed two
sequential courses of foreign language in sec-
ondary school or 8-10 semester hours at the
post-secondary level, or document an equiva-
lent level of proficiency.
Because of the diversity among degree pro-
grams offered by the college, the specific
requirements for each major are listed separa-
torely on the following pages. Students should
contact the undergraduate faculty adviser for
their major once they are admitted to the col-
lege. They should complete the course require-
ments for the major in the semester designated
in the catalog and on the universal tracking
audit. The student's undergraduate faculty
adviser will make any necessary adjustments.
However, it is important that each student com-
plete the math, chemistry, biology and physics
courses as outlined in the semester-by-semester
listings for the first four semesters of study.
Juniors and seniors should have completed
all courses listed for the first four semesters of
their curriculum. Any student not completing
these should do so in the first semester of the
junior year.


The college policy regarding registration is
that each student must consult his/her faculty
adviser prior to each registration. This ensures
that the student takes the appropriate courses in
the appropriate sequence. The college monitors
this policy by examining each student's schedule
after registration. Students not enrolled in
appropriate courses will not be allowed to regis-
ter for the following term.
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. Community 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 and non-
Florida public community colleges should com-
plete the first two years' requirements listed for
their majors prior to transferring to the univer-
sity and to this college.
Transfer students should avoid specialized
1-2000 level 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,
basic science and math 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
for the first four semesters with particular
emphasis on successful completion of all math,
biology, chemistry and physics courses 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





AGRICULTURE


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
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 stu-
dent's University of Florida transcript and may
be used to satisfy curriculum requirements, 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 UF grade point average.
Such grades are included in a student's perma-
nent academic record and are reflected on the
transcript. Students should be aware that other
academic institutions, agencies and organiza-
tions may interpret a grade of U as a failing
grade in their grade point average computation.
Students choosing the S-U Option must be
in good standing and may not be on university
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 taught only on an S-U basis.
Courses taken to fulfill general education,
Gordon Rule or specific required courses for the
major may not be taken S-U.
For fall, spring and summer C terms, the
deadline for electing the S-U Option is 4:00
p.m., Friday, the third week of classes. For sum-
mer 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 15


deficit points, (s)he is suspended by the univer-
sity for one semester. While on university sus-
pension, a student may not enroll at any other
institution. After the one semester suspension,
the student may apply for readmission and, at
the end of the semester that (s)he returns, must
have fewer than 15 deficit points or be sus-
pended permanently from the university.
College Probation: A student whose
junior/senior level grade point average falls
below 2.0 is also placed on college probation.
When that occurs, the student will be notified
by the assistant dean for undergraduate acade-
mic programs that (s)he is on probation and
must bring his/her UF 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 stu-
dent has a deficit record, (s)he must continue
removing three deficit points per semester until
his/her overall UF grade point average is 2.0.
Failure to remove three deficit points per semes-
ter 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 institution. If a student does enroll at
another institution, those grades will not reduce
the deficit points on his/her UF record.
However, they must earn a "C" or better at that
institution. Upon returning to UF, 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:
Two unrestricted drops after the university
drop/add period will be permitted for a stu-
dent classified as 1AG/FY and 2AG/FY.
Students classified as 3AG/FY, 4AG/FY,
6AG/FY and OAG/FY are allowed one unre-
stricted 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 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 completed: CEN 3031, COT 4420, COP
4720, CEN 3031 or COP 4620. This sequence
requires a minimum of three semesters beyond
completion of calculus. A student should con-
sult his/her academic adviser to determine spe-
cific requirements for a program of study.






COLLEGES


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 the college and in all credits
attempted at the university. Finally, students
must complete the general education and major
requirements in effect at the time of their initial
undergraduate enrollment at UF.
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 semes-
ter credits of residence work required for the
baccalaureate degree, but such work must have
prior approval by the undergraduate coordina-
tor for the major and the college dean for each
course taken. Credit for work by correspon-
dence will not be accepted by the college unless
a student has a junior/senior level 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 UF junior/senior
level grade point average of 3.5 or above. For
purposes of honors, these courses are defined as
all courses taken at the university after the stu-
dent 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 select from the
courses listed.
Critical Tracking Criteria
The courses in bold in the semester plans
represent the critical tracking criteria for the
major. They are the criteria used to determine
whether or not you are on or off track. These
critical tracking courses must be completed by
the end of the first four semesters at the uni-
versity. If you do not complete the appropriate
number of tracking courses in a semester, you
will have a hold placed on your record and
will not be permitted to advance register until
you meet with your academic adviser and
agree to enroll in appropriate tracking courses
the following semester.


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
education teacher certification in Florida. In
addition to these courses, a graduate must apply
to the Florida Department of Education for certi-
fication. Each applicant who applies for a
full-time Florida teaching certificate must pasd
the Florida Teacher Certification Examination,
and have a 2.5 GPA on all technical agriculture
course work.

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
technical management. The application of tech-
nology and management to improve agricul-
tural production, processing, manufacturing,
product support and product evaluation are
emphasized.







Fundamental technologies in food engineer-
ing, machinery, power, robotics, irrigation, elec-
trical 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 envi-
ronmental systems management. Students
should consult a department adviser for guid-
ance.

AGRICULTURE


Agronomy (see Plant Science)
The Department of Agronomy administers
undergraduate plant science majors in the
agronomy specialization. Students interested in
any of the options under the agronomy special-
ization should contact the department early in
their academic careers.

Animal Science
The animal sciences is a diverse program
offered by the departments of Animal Science
and Dairy and Poultry Sciences. This major
offers two specializations, one in animal biology
and one in animal industry. Students may select
from four options under the animal industry spe-
cialization: dairy, equine, food animal and poul-
try. Students are encouraged to select the appro-
priate specialization/option and electives to pre-
pare for specific career objectives. Potential
careers for animal sciences majors include vari-
ous aspects of livestock production (beef cattle,
dairy cattle, swine, poultry and horses), livestock
processing and utilization (meat, milk and eggs,
performance and recreation), allied service
industries (feed, health care, genetics, equipment,
supplies, marketing, promotion, finance and edu-
cation), as well as preparation for postbaccalaure-
ate education in graduate school or the College of
Veterinary Medicine. Students should meet with
the undergraduate coordinator in animal sci-
ences to select the appropriate specialization/
option and academic faculty adviser.

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 hon-
ors, high honors or highest honors, a student
must have a junior/senior level grade point aver-
age of 3.50, 3.75, and 3.85, respectively. (For pur-
poses of honors, UF junior/senior level courses

of the research must be written in scientific style
and submitted to the faculty research supervisor
and to the undergraduate coordinator during the
last week of the semester. 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 college office at 2002
McCarty Hall at least three days before gradua-
tion. 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.
The research will be supervised by a faculty
member in the department or approved faculty
outside the department. The project will be
microbiology or cell biology in nature. A
one-page proposal of the research must be sub-
mitted to the undergraduate coordinator for
approval prior to registering for MCB 4905 and

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 newest education and
research center is in Miami Beach, adjacent to
the Art Deco historic district.
Student Organizations
Student Government and student organiza-
tions take an active part in the educational 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

Requirements For Admission
Listed herein are the specific requirements
for admission to this college. It should be
understood that admission to the college is
selective. Admission is not guaranteed auto-
matically to all applicants who satisfy mini-
mum requirements. The college has established
a selective admission process. Priority in admis-
sion shall be given to those applicants who, in
the judgment of the appropriate department/
school's admissions committee, have the great-
est potential for successful completion of the
program.

General Admission Protocols All Students
To be eligible for admission at the junior
year into the College of Architecture, students
must have (a) completed all requirements for
the A.A. degree; (b) passed the College Level
Academic Skills Test (CLAST); and (c) com-
pleted two sequential foreign language courses
in secondary school or 8-10 credits at the post-
secondary level (or documented an equivalent
level of proficiency). Admission at the junior/
senior level is open to applicants who have
completed all general education and preprofes-
sional course work and qualify for enrollment
into the third-year professional course work.
Conditional admission is open to applicants
who have accumulated 60 credits of college-
level course work and meet the admissions cri-
teria, 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 the junior year. These stu-
dents may require as many as four semesters at
the University of Florida to complete preprofes-
sional 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 for Native UF Students
Freshmen at the University of Florida are
admitted directly to the College of Architecture.
The College of Architecture will monitor the
progress of all students. Students who fall
below the critical tracking criteria for their
degree program will have a hold placed on their
records, must see an adviser in the college/aca-
demic unit before they can advance register and
continue in the program, or be referred to
Academic Advising to seek admission to
another college.





ARCHITECTURE


Admission Protocols for Transfer Students
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
must be filed by the deadline listed in the
university calendar. Transfer students with

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
department regarding preprofessional
courses not available at those colleges.
Students needing to complete preprofes-
sional requirements are urged to apply for
the summer term for the sequence of archi-
tectural design, building arts and architec-
tural history. The remaining preprofes-
sional courses may be completed during the
next academic year. Students accepted for
the sequence shall be admitted condition-
ally and their records shall be reviewed for
approval to enter the professional courses
in the junior year during the next spring
term. Students are admitted selectively to
the professional program on the basis of
portfolio review, overall grade point aver-
age, interview and letter of application.
Notification of the decision of the admis-
sions committee shall be made prior to the
close of the spring semester for the junior
class which begins the following fall.
Contact the department for current infor-
mation.
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 performance, transcript, letter and
interview.
Curriculum in Building Construction: See the M.E.
Rinker Sr. School of Building Construction
section of this catalog.


Application Deadlines
The programs in architecture, interior design
and landscape architecture will admit students
for third-year professional course work in the
fall semester only. Students needing to complete
some or all of the preprofessional 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 college may not apply
toward the calculation of the College of
Architecture average. Specific grade require-
ments for the various curricula may be obtained
from those offices.
Students planning to enter the Graduate
School must maintain a 3.0 average in the junior
and senior years.

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.
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.





COLLEGES


Student Work
The college reserves the right to retain stu-
dent work for the purpose of record, exhibition
or instruction. Work produced while the stu-
dent is enrolled in the College of Architecture is
the property of the college. Adequate documen-
tation will be made available to students whose
work is retained.

Practical Experience
Students are urged to obtain before gradua-
tion some experience in the employment of
practicing professionals in their particular field
or in some allied work which will give an
insight into the problems of professional prac-
tice. Such employment provides an introduction
to the methods of actual practice and enables
the student to derive increased benefit from
advanced work in school. Students should con-
tact their faculty adviser for recommended or
required practical experience best suited to their
individual needs.

Field Trips
Each year a number of field trips are
arranged to give students an opportunity to
broaden and extend their educational experi-
ence through study of planning, design and
construction projects of unusual interest.
Students frequently combine such studies with
attendance at state and national meetings of the
professional organizations in their respective
fields. Students should consult their depart-
ments for field trip requirements. Students 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 continu-
ing access to a personal computer. Each acade-
mic unit within the college will maintain infor-
mation concerning computer hardware and
software appropriate to its discipline and cur-
riculum.

Curriculum in Architecture
Leading to the Bachelor of Design
Robert S. McCarter, Chair
Successful completion of the undergraduate
curriculum results in the granting of the
Bachelor of Design (Architecture), a preprofes-
sional degree, the first step toward professional
registration as an architect. The professional
program in architecture leads to the Master of
Architecture and, for students without a bac-
calaureate degree in another discipline, requires
both undergraduate and graduate study.
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 professional program in architecture. The
number of applicants who can be accepted is
limited by available classroom space, studio
space and faculty.
The admission process is based on three cri-
teria: preprofessional grade point average, archi-
tectural 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 preprofes-
sional requirements successfully to be guaran-
teed admission to the professional program at
the junior year. Community college transfers
must have completed the Associate of Arts
degree, with all general education and prepro-
fessional 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 are not guar-
anteed admission. It is the department's policy
to admit the best-qualified applicants as evi-
denced by their academic achievement and their
potential to complete successfully the under-
graduate program.

In rare instances and/or in special circum-
stances determined by the director and within
space limitations, students who do not meet the
admission requirements indicated precisely
may be granted provisional admission to the
School of Building Construction. The director
will specify the courses to be completed and
minimum grade points to be earned by the stu-
dent during the term of provisional admission.
Provisional status will be removed and the stu-
dent may compete for a space in the junior year
along with other eligible candidates provided
that the student fulfills the conditions set forth
in the provisional admission. The student will
be excluded from further enrollment if the stu-
dent fails to satisfy these conditions.
Courses also are offered leading to the
Master of Building Construction or Master of
Science in Building Construction. The normal
graduate enrollment is 45. For those interested
in pursuing a Ph.D. degree, the College of
Architecture began offering such a program in
1988. For requirements for these degrees and
admission to graduate school, consult the
Graduate Catalog.

Scholarships and Assistantships
Information about general financial aid can
be obtained from the Office for Student
Financial Affairs, Box 114025, University of
Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611-4025. Information
concerning scholarships available for third- and
fourth-year building construction students can
be obtained from the school.

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

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.
