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 academic units (colleges/schools and their majors) and the third section lists course descriptions. Other information is provided, including cal-
endars and 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 majors, minors and
special programs offered by the college, requirements for admission 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 Course Prefixes, Titles and Departments for a listing of the department
that offers the course. For example, a course with the prefix ADV is taught by the departments of Advertising and Mass Communication. NOTE: Because
some courses are offered by more than one department, you may have to look in several departments' course descriptions sections to find course information.

Course Prefixes Listing
The following table lists the statewide course prefixes, their titles and the University of Florida departments that teach courses with this prefix. An index
of Course Descriptions precedes the Course Descriptions section of the catalog and cites page numbers for each department's course listings.

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 help students find the best path to 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 find the best major?
UT monitors the critical tracking courses for all majors and provides feedback to the student and to the adviser beginning with the fall semester of the fresh-
man year. This immediate feedback will help the student determine if he/she has chosen the best major and is on track for graduation.
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 to access ISIS via the World Wide Web (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 will be required to change to 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 chang-
ing 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 request a 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
15%.








Frequently Asked Questions About the Undergraduate Catalog


The Undergraduate Catalog is very long. Why 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 Ifind 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?

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
multidisciplinary centers and represent the
university'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,
linking the experiences of Western Europe with
the traditions and histories of all cultures, that
explores the limits of the physical and biologi-
cal universes, and that nurtures and prepares
generations of educated people to address the
problems of our societies. While this university
recognizes no limits on its intellectual bound-
aries, 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
professional schools. Yet even with many
degrees, American university undergraduate
education still rests on the fundamental knowl-
edge 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 undergradu-
ate and graduate professional programs and
master'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 indicator of
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
profile, do not respond in the same ways to
these issues. As a public university, we must
maintain close, continuous and effective com-
munication with our many publics.
Comprehensive. This adjective recognizes
the universal reach of our pursuit of knowl-
edge. 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 institu-
tional culture and defines us as one of 72 such
institutions in America. The land-grant univer-
sity is, of course, a peculiarly American inven-
tion and captures one of the powerful cultural
beliefs of our country: that knowledge passes
the test of utility by remaining vitally con-
nected to industry and commerce.






GENERAL INFORMATION


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 clini-
cal research cures and prevents diseases. The list
of research fields continues as endlessly as the
intellectual concerns of our faculty and the aca-
demic 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 42,000 in Fall 1997-come from more than
100 countries (4,174 international students), all
50 states, and every one of the 67 counties in
Florida. The ratio of men to women is 51/49.
Seventy-six percent of UF students are under-
graduates (31,535), 18% are graduate students
(7,671) and 6% (2,507) are in the professional
programs of dentistry, law, medicine, pharmacy
and veterinary medicine.
Approximately 2,600 African-American stu-
dents, 3,800 Hispanic students and 2,400 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 consistently ranks
among the top five public universities 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, includ-
ing excellence and high merit in scholarship or
creative achievement, teaching, service and
extension. The faculty attracted $256 million in
research and training grants in 1996-97.
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 1996-97, Florida stands
12th among all universities, with six visiting
scholars and nine 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 cate-
gorized in 1994 by the Carnegie Commission on


Higher Education. UF is one of 62 members of
the Association of American Universities, the
nation's most prestigious higher education orga-
nization. The university is accredited by the
Southern Association of Colleges and Schools-
Commission on Colleges to award the degrees
of bachelor, master, specialist and engineer, as
well as doctoral and professional degrees. UF is
one of the nation's top three universities offer-
ing more academic programs on a single cam-
pus than any of the nation's other universities. It
has 21 colleges and schools and over 100 inter-
disciplinary research and education centers,
bureaus, and institutes. Almost 100 undergradu-
ate degree programs are offered. The Graduate
School coordinates more than 200 graduate pro-
grams throughout the university's colleges and
schools. Professional postbaccalaureate degrees
are offered in dentistry, law, medicine, phar-
macy 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 aca-
demic year begins and ends in August. There
are two semesters averaging 15 weeks of
instruction, plus a week of final examinations
and two six-week summer terms. Semesters
begin in August, January, and May, with sum-
mer term offered as a whole as Term C, or in
two sessions as half terms, with Term A begin-
ning in May and Term B beginning in June.

Facilities
On 2,000 acres, most of it within the limits of
a 100,000-population urban area, the university
operates out of 896 buildings, 158 of them
equipped with classrooms and laboratories.
Facilities are valued at approximately $694 mil-
lion. Notable among these are the University Art
Gallery, a microkelvin laboratory capable of pro-
ducing some of the coldest temperatures in the
universe, a 100-kilowatt training and research
nuclear reactor, the second largest academic
computing center in the South, and a self-con-
tained intensive-care hyperbaric chamber for
treating near-drowning victims.
The Florida Museum of Natural History is
the largest natural history/anthropology
museum in the Southeast, and one of the top 10
in the nation. Its research collections contain
nearly 6.5 million specimens.
The Samuel P. 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 environ-
ment 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 university
community includes members of the faculty,
staff and administration as well as students.


Education at the University of Florida is not
an ethically neutral experience. The university
stands for, and seeks to inculcate, high stan-
dards. Moreover, the concern for values goes
well beyond the observance of rules.
A university is a place where self-expression,
voicing disagreement and challenging 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, students
are expected to follow the university's rules and
regulations that, by design, promote an atmos-
phere of learning. Faculty, staff and administra-
tion are expected to provide encouragement,
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 fun-
damental 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 faculty,
staff and administrators who practice dishonest
or demeaning behavior.
Student Responsibility. Students should
report any condition that facilitates dishon-
esty 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 fos-
ter cheating in their classes. Teachers should
encourage students to bring negative condi-
tions 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 prin-
cipal role is to engage in education that leads
to high standards and respectful conduct.
When those are compromised, it will take
disciplinary action against organizations and
individuals violating either the law or the
reasonable use of alcohol. It also must pro-
vide help for students who are alcohol-
dependent. The university will deal severely
with students convicted of the illegal posses-
sion, 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 professional
help to seek it. The same standards and reg-
ulations 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, coercive
or abusive, or that invade the right to privacy of
the individual, are not acceptable. Organizations
or individuals that adversely upset the balance
of communal living will be subject to university
disciplinary action. Only in an atmosphere of
equality and respect can all members of the uni-
versity 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 AFFAIRS


Division of Housing

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 coun-
tries. Since students come from differing envi-
ronmental backgrounds and social experiences,
they bring with them varying needs and expec-
tations. Because of this diversity in the student
body, the Division of Housing has developed a
program based on alternatives and choices.
Students may select accommodations and envi-
ronments that best fit their needs.
General Guidelines: 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 hous-
ing 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 residence
halls. Full-time enrollment for residence is
defined as being enrolled in 12 semester credit
hours if an undergraduate and 9 semester credit
hours if a graduate student.
All students other than beginning freshmen
must initiate their own arrangements for hous-
ing either by (1) applying to Assignments Office,
University Housing Office, Box 112100,
University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611-
2100, or (2) obtaining accommodations in pri-
vate housing. (See Off-Campus Housing later in
this section.)
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 on-cam-
pus housing. Application requests are consid-
ered first-come, first-served, on a space-avail-
able 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 visi-
tation choice and assignment options.
Students with disabilities are also offered
housing on a first-come, first-served, space-
available basis. Accessible housing is available


for students with disabilities once they are
offered housing. Students with special needs
should indicate these needs on both their hous-
ing 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 preva-
lent room style is the double room which
accommodates two residents.
All rooms have closets, dressers, beds and
mattresses, study desks and chairs. Rental rates
include cable television service, local telephone
service and utilities (limited utilities in the
Apartment Facility). Rental rates vary depend-
ing 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 custodial staff, maintenance staff,
clerical staff, administrators and student staff,
including hall directors, assistant residence
directors, resident assistants, desk assistants and
security assistants.
One of the housing staff's primary goals is to
provide an environment that supports the edu-
cational mission of the university. Staff are com-
mitted to going beyond merely providing a
place for students to eat, sleep and study. Staff
and student leaders plan social, recreational,
cultural and educational opportunities. Staff
also are trained in crisis intervention and in per-
sonal and fire safety and security procedures.
Students' main contact with staff is with resi-
dent 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 collective
interests of all resident students. This organiza-
tion also serves as a channel of communication
between residence area government councils,
the university community and other outside
interests. This self-government program at both
the hall and area levels offers residents the
opportunity to help establish guidelines for
group living and to assist in the planning of
social and educational activities for their fellow
students.


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

includes call waiting, speed calling, 3-way call-
ing and call return.
Convenience Stores: Beaty Breadbasket,
Graham Oasis and the Finish Line, three conve-
nience stores owned and operated by Gator

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

Simpson, Trusler and Tolbert Halls are the resi-
dence facilities nearest Gator Corner Dining
Facility, the large multi-purpose dining facility
that accommodates the board plan program.
Other cafeterias and snack bars on campus
include dining facilities in or near Broward Hall,
Tolbert Area and Murphree Area. A snack bar is

food vendors are also located in the Reitz
Student Union and the Hub. For further infor-
mation, please contact the Gator Dining Service
office, 114 Recreation Center.
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
and the Apartment Residence Facility).
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

gain access to these halls in addition to their
floor/section keys and room keys. Contact resi-
dent hall staff to determine the conversion sta-
tus of a particular facility.

Student Financial Affairs
The Office for Student Financial Affairs
(SFA), located in the Criser Student Services
complex, in 107 Criser Hall, coordinates and
administers most student financial aid programs
at the university and provides financial assis-
tance 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 eval-
uates financial need for UF students from data
provided by the federal need-analysis processor,
after the processor has analyzed the information
students and their families have supplied on
the student's Free Applicationsfor 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 named "self-
help" because students must repay loans and
work for money awarded through employment
programs. Awards to students consist of schol-
arships, grants, loans, and/or work, singly or as
a package.
When to Apply: Applications are available
January 1 each year. Students need to send their
forms to the appropriate processor as soon as
possible after that date. Students are considered
for aid according to the date their aid file
becomes 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 also
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 finan-
cial data must reach us from the processor no
later than March 16. Be sure to allow a mini-
mum of three weeks processing time. Financial
aid transcripts from all previously attended
institutions covering all periods of attendance
are required for all transfer students. Students
should provide accurate financial figures taken
directly from completed 1997 income tax forms.
To comply with federal financial aid require-
ments, the Office for Student Financial Affairs
must verify all information. Incorrect informa-
tion or incorrectly completed application forms
can cause aid to be delayed or denied. Students
should keep copies of all their financial aid doc-
uments.
Confidentiality of Student Records: The uni-
versity ensures the confidentiality of student
records in accordance with State University
System statutes and the Family Education

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 1998 is

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-
campus jobs and the state-funded OPS job pro-
gram are not based on need and are available
through the Student Employment Office. For
other graduate aid such as fellowships and
assistantships, students should apply through
the Graduate School and the dean's 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-
ates. For information, students should contact
the dean of their college. Many private donors
offer scholarships, selecting the recipients)
directly; students should contact civic clubs, ser-
vice organizations, private corporations and
other resources in their home communities.
Grants are awarded to undergraduate stu-
dents with financial need. Awards range from
$100 to $4,000. The two largest grant programs
available at the university are the Federal Pell
Grant and the state-funded Florida Student
Assistance Grant.
The following undergraduate student loan
programs are available at this university:
Federal Direct Stafford/Ford Loans, Federal
Direct Unsubsidized Stafford/Ford Loans,








University of Florida Institutional Loans and
Federal Perkins Loans. Parents of dependent
undergraduates can also take out educational
loans for their son or daughter through the
Federal Direct PLUS Loan program. These pro-
grams offer long-term, low-interest loans that
must be repaid when the borrower graduates,
withdraws or drops to less than half-time enroll-
ment.
Loans range upward from $500 per aca-
demic year at interest rates from 0 percent and
25 percent annually. The amount of each loan,
except for Federal Direct unsubsidized Stafford/
Ford Loans and Federal Direct PLUS loans, is
based on need as determined from information
the borrower provides on the FAFSA.
The university also has a Short-Term Loan
program to help students meet emergency
financial needs related to educational expenses.
Students may borrow up to $400 or the amount
of in-state tuition if they have an acceptable
repayment source. Interest is 1 percent per
month and these loans must be repaid by the
first day of the last month in the semester in
which the money is borrowed. Short-Term Loan
applications are available in 107 Criser Hall.
Part-time employment through the univer-
sity is offered to about 7,500 students each year.
Students normally work 15-20 hours a week,
four or five days a week and earn at least mini-
mum wage. Most departments help students
arrange their working hours around their aca-
demic schedules.
Student Employment Office: The SFA
Student Employment Office is a clearinghouse
for part-time employment and coordinates three
employment programs: Federal Work-Study,
including the Federal Community Service com-
ponent; Other Personnel Services (OPS); and off-
campus jobs. Federal Work-Study is based on
need and is awarded to students as part of their
overall financial aid package. OPS jobs are state-
funded and are not based on need. Student
employment maintains job bulletin boards for
all three programs at the following locations:
Criser Hall courtyard, McCarty Hall first floor,
Norman Hall first floor, outside 305 Reitz
Union, and outside H101 Shands Medical
Center. The Criser Hall job board is updated
daily, and weekly updates are posted at other
locations.

Information Services: SFA offers several infor-
mation services to students, including SFA TIPS
(Touchtone Interactive Phone System), a World
Wide Web access site and up-to-date general

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
exception: Students may carry up to 160 credit
hours for programs that regularly require more
than 130 earned hours to achieve a degree.

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






STUDENT AFFAIRS


receive up-to-eleven full-time terms (or the
equivalent) of aid;
Students in programs requiring more

Regents 10 percent admissions policy in a pro-
gram requiring more than 130 credit hours may
receive up-to-twelve full-time terms (or the
equivalent) of aid.
The maximum number of terms students
transferring to the university may receive aid is
prorated based on their entering enrollment sta-
tus. For example, a student enrolling as a junior
may receive a maximum of five terms of aid to
earn a baccalaureate degree. Transfer students
should check with their financial aid adviser
concerning eligible semesters of aid. Aid
received at another institution is not included.
Postbaccalaureate Students: Students enrolled
in postbaccalaureate studies must petition the
Academic Progress Appeals Committee to
receive financial aid. Postbaccalaureate students
must meet the same academic requirements as
undergraduates. The types of financial aid avail-
able to postbaccalaureate students depend on
the student's degree-seeking status.
Graduate Students: Students must maintain a
2.0 minimum cumulative grade point average or
meet the academic standards required by their
departments, whichever is higher.
Students will be ineligible for aid if they do
not attain their degree objectives after carrying

100 credit hours at the graduate level for
students enrolled in the Juris Doctor program.
Students will be evaluated each term for eli-
gibility to enroll for the following term.
Professional Students in the Colleges of
Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary Science:
Since professional schools use a non-traditional
grading system (one not based upon GPA) to
assess satisfactory completion of course work,
the same policy (a similar non-traditional
approach) will be used to measure qualitative
progress for continuing financial aid eligibility.
Students must earn their degrees within four
years. They will be evaluated annually in
September to determine advancement to the
next class level. If they do not advance to the
next class level but are still eligible for enroll-
ment they will be on financial aid probation the
following year. Students who have not
advanced to the next class level by the end of
the probationary period will no longer be eligi-
'ble for financial aid.
Additional Policies Which Apply to All
Students
Students who withdraw from school once
while receiving financial aid will be on financial
aid warning;
Students who withdraw from school more
than once while receiving financial aid will no
longer be eligible for financial aid;
Withdrawal from a Summer A or B term
will constitute one-half of a withdrawal;
Course withdrawals, incomplete and
course repetitions will conform to the academic
standards used by the university for determin-
ing grade point average;
Remedial courses are not offered at the
university; and
Students who think they have extenuating
circumstances that have contributed to their fail-
ure to maintain satisfactory academic progress
may petition the Academic Progress Appeals
Committee for reassessment of their status.

ically addressed in this policy must petition
the academic progress appeals committee to
continue to receive financial aid.

arships, and program background materials
along with general counseling to tailor pro-
grams to individual needs are available in the
Overseas Studies library. Academic support is
provided by UF colleges, departments and fac-
ulty. Overseas studies can be incorporated into
virtually any academic degree without creating
excess hours or delays in graduation in most
cases. Students should be aware that "Any
excess-hours charge produced by hours of over-
seas study that are officially certified by the
oversea studies division of the UF Office of
International Studies and Programs will be paid
by the University of Florida."

regularly and specially admitted minority stu-
dents (African American, Asian American,
Hispanic American and Native American). This

Program, the Student Enrichment Services
Program and other regularly admitted students
in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. This
office works in close coordination with the
Office of Admissions and counselors in high
schools and community colleges to facilitate the
admission of minority students.
Once students are admitted, OASIS contin-
ues to assist their retention by providing aca-
demic counseling, tutoring, referrals and advo-
cacy. OASIS works in close cooperation with the
Academic Advising Center to supplement and








provide training and information to all special
advising programs.

successful negotiation through the university
and to stimulate their use of and participation in
resources and activities that might enhance aca-
demic progress. Tutors are provided in math
and English, and referrals are made and tutor-
ing arranged in other areas through the O.I.R.
Teaching Center, the Reading and Writing

retention and graduation of minority students.

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 educa-
tion/internship work experience opportunities
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 stu-
dent, 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 sev-
eral graduate assistants are available.
SIGI+, a computerized career exploration
and occupational information system, is avail-
able free to students. SIGI+ helps match career
interests with occupations and provides each
student a personal printout for review. Other
computer-assisted career guidance (CACG) pro-
grams 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-

income to pay college expenses and enable stu-
dents to become more competitive when enter-
ing the job market.
Hundreds of recruiters visit the CRC each
semester and conduct thousands of on-campus
job interviews, the largest such program in the
state. The center uses 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 section 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 modest 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 fol-
low the 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 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-
ties with hundreds of national corporations.
A Career Resource Library containing infor-
mation to aid students in making career choices;
facts on several thousand employers and related
occupations; employer contact lists; directories
for business, industry, education and govern-
ment; lists of American firms operating over-
seas; reference material and information on
graduate and special studies programs includ-
ing fellowships, assistantships and other mater-
ials and resource data. Research data is available
on job trends, outlook and economic forecasts,
labor market statistics, manpower bulletins for
various career fields, special directories and
publications rating most employers.
An Audiovisual Library with 250
slide/tape, video and audio programs provides
career choices, employer information and job
search and interview techniques.
A Credentials Repository and Referral
Service is available to students and alumni.
Copies of credentials are sent upon request to


STUDENT AFFAIRS


potential employers. In addition, the center
refers qualified persons on file to interested
employers requesting candidates to fill job
vacancies.

advantage of the educational opportunities at
the university. Appointments to see a counselor
may be made in person at 301 Peabody Hall,

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.
In keeping with the Americans with
Disabilities Act, the university considers
HIV/AIDS to be a disability. Existing support
services can be utilized by students or employ-
ees who are disabled by HIV infection or AIDS.

Student Life

Student Activities and
Organizations
Student Government: Student Government at
the University of Florida is a cooperative organi-
zation for advancing student interests and is
based on mutual confidence among the student
body, the faculty and the administration.
Considerable authority has been granted the
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 activ-
ities and administration of the Student Honor
and Traffic Courts. University administration,
faculty and staff feel that training in and respon-
sibility for the conduct of student affairs is a
valuable part of educational growth and devel-
opment.
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 chapters at
the university. The Interfratemity, National Pan-
Hellenic and Panhellenic Councils are the gov-
erning bodies of all UF Greek organizations. The
Interfraternity Council supervises the activities
of the 25 NIC fraternities and is composed of an
executive board and the president of each fra-
ternity. The officially recognized national frater-
nities 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 traditionally
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 executive
board and the president and Panhellenic dele-
gate 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 approximately
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 hon-
esty and integrity. When students enroll at the
university, they commit themselves to the stan-
dard 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 commu-
nity 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 fac-
ulty.
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

copied; giving someone answers to exam ques-
tions either when the exam is being given or
after taking an exam; giving or selling a term

dent; sharing information on a graded assign-
ment.
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 presentation 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.

resenting facts when confronted with an allega-
tion of academic dishonesty.

demic dishonesty to gain academic 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
appropriate officials of any violations of regula-
tions and to assist in their enforcement. All con-
duct regulations of the university are printed
and made available to all students and are
applicable 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 reg-
ulations 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;
SActivities 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 proce-
dure 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 relevant 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
student has waived the right to attend the hear-
ing, 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 hearing officer/commit-
tee are based on the preponderance of the evi-
dence.

Suspension of Student Pending Hearing:
Violations of the Student Conduct Code, Section
V.A.(1)L. and V.A.(I)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

Off-Campus Conduct: When a student violates
city, state or federal law by an offense commit-


ted off campus which is not associated with a
university-connected activity, the disciplinary
authority of the university will not be used
merely to duplicate the penalty awarded for
such an act under applicable ordinances and
laws. The university will take disciplinary action
against a student for such an off-campus offense
only when it is required by law to do so or
when the nature of the offense is such that in
the judgment of the Director of Student Judicial
Affairs, the continued presence of the student
on campus is likely to interfere with the educa-
tional process or the orderly operation of the
university; or the continued presence of the stu-
dent on campus is likely to endanger the health,
safety, or welfare of the university community
or is intimidating or threatening to another indi-
vidual within the University Community; or the
offense committed by the student is of such a
serious nature as to adversely affect the 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 univer-
sity with respect to any off-campus conduct
shall be made independent of any off-campus
authority.
Postponement of Hearing Due to Pending or
Possible Criminal or Civil Charges: If the stu-
dent charged with a violation of the Student
Conduct Code, regardless of which primary
judicial body may hear the matter, wishes to
have the hearing postponed because there is
pending or possible civil or criminal litigation
which he/she feels might be prejudiced by the
findings of the hearing, such postponement may
be granted provided the student agrees to
accept conduct probation or suspension,
depending upon the gravity of the offense. Such
probation or suspension will be determined and
activated by the Director of Student Judicial
Affairs and will remain in force until such time
as the student requests a hearing before the
appropriate primary judicial body and the hear-
ing is held. The student shall be informed
whether he/she would be placed on probation
or suspended prior to making a decision to
postpone the hearing.
Student Waiver of Right to Hearing: In the
event a student charged with a violation of the
Student Conduct Code desires to waive the
right to a hearing by the appropriate official or
hearing body, and the student so indicates in
writing, the Director of Student Judicial Affairs,
Assistant Director of Student Judicial Affairs,
Coordinator of Residential Judicial Programs, or
Residence Directors, provided he/she agrees to
accept jurisdiction, may make a determination
of fact and take appropriate action concerning
the alleged violation.
Summary Hearing: In the event a student
charged with a violation of the Student Conduct
Code, which in the opinion of the Director of


Student Judicial Affairs, if proven, would not
warrant a penalty in excess of two semesters

Intercollegiate Athletics
For each of the last eight years the
University of Florida has ranked among the
nation's five best collegiate athletic programs
and among the nation's 10 best for 14 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. Florida, UCLA and Stanford are
the only schools in the nation to finish in the top
five in the nation over the past eight years.
On the strength of 10 top 10 national fin-
ishes, highlighted by a national title by the fpot-
ball team, the University of Florida finished fifth
in the 1996-97 Sears Directors' Cup national all-
sports competition.
The Directors' Cup program, conducted by
the National Association of Collegiate Directors
of Athletics (NACDA) and sponsored by Sears,
annually recognizes schools with the best over-
all sports performances in an academic year.
The all-sports champion is determined by
points awarded for an institution's finish in up
to 22 sports. Fielding 18 athletic teams, Florida
finished fifth with 763 points. Stanford captured


the title with 1084.5 points, while North
Carolina was second with 804 points.
In addition to the football national title, nine
other Gator teams finished in the top 10 of their
respective sports in 1996-97: Women's Tennis
(2nd); Volleyball (T3rd); Gymnastics (5th);
Women's Indoor Track (5th); Soccer (T5th);
Women's Basketball (T5th); Women's Outdoor
Track (6th); Men's Tennis (T9th); Women's Golf
(10th).
The University of Florida women's athletics
program, which celebrated its 25th anniversary
this past year, was named the nation's best
women's athletic program by Sports Illustrated
in April 1997.
The Gators also captured seven Southeastern
Conference Championships in 1996-97, raising
its total to 40 since the 1990-91 academic year,
this is more than double any other conference
school's total over that time span. The Gators
won SEC crowns in football, soccer, women's
tennis, volleyball and all three women's track
crowns-cross country, indoor and outdoor
track and claimed the SEC All-Sports title for
the sixth consecutive time as well as the eighth
time in 10 years. The women's program was the
top program in the SEC for the eighth time in
the last 14 years. The Gators became the first
women's program in conference history to pull
off track and field's triple crown and the six SEC
titles by the women's program is a seasonal
record, bettering the previous best of UF's five
women's conference titles in 1991-92. UF's seven
total titles is one short of the SEC single-season
record, which Florida set in 1991-92 with eight
crowns.
Individually, 64 Gator athletes earned All-
America honors in 1996-97, and four Gators
won individual national titles. The Florida
coaching staff garnered seven SEC Coach-of-the-
Year honors and two Gator coaches also were
recognized with National-Coach-of-the-Year
honors.
Florida was equally successful away from
the athletic arena in 1996-97, as a record-shatter-
ing 94 student-athletes were named to the
Southeastern Conference's Academic Honor
Roll. Florida has now had 383 Academic Honor
Roll recipients over the last five years-the best
five-year total in UF and SEC history. Since the
1980-81 year, UF student-athletes have accumu-
lated 821 SEC Academic Honor Roll honors, the
top total in the SEC during that time span.
Florida was one of only five schools in the
nation to have four first-team GTE Academic
All-America selections in 1996-97. Former Gator
Tracy Caulkins Stockwell was inducted into the
GTE Academic All-America Hall of Fame in
April 1997, making Florida one of only two
schools in the nation to have a male and female
representative in the GTE Academic All-
America Hall of Fame (Carlos Alvarez was
inducted in 1989).
Even though the NCAA estimates that 70
percent of Division I schools are losing money
on intercollegiate athletics, the Gator athletic
program continues to impact the university's


academic programs. Since 1988, the University
Athletic Association has contributed more than
13.2 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. More than 5.1 million fans have filed
through the gates to attend UF sporting events
over the last six years. In fact, more than 825,000
fans attended 150 home events in Gainesville in
1996-97. Five of UF's athletic teams ranked
among the top 10 in national attendance in
1996-97.
UF also sponsors the Goodwill Gators. This
is a program where UF student-athletes, coaches
and administrators take part in community-
related endeavors. The Goodwill Gators were
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 of its 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 also can lay claim to
some of the world's finest athletes, showcased
every four years at the Olympic Games. Since
1968, spanning eight Olympic Games, 83 Gator
student-athletes have represented 16 countries
and claimed 51 medals-including 25 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'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
athletic complex. With its 83,000 seats, the sta-
dium is one of the eight largest on-campus foot-
ball stadiums in the nation. UF has ranked
among the nation's top 15 in average football
attendance for 15 consecutive years and among
the country's top five for six straight years.
Since 1986, Florida has had $60 million in
capital improvements, including two major
expansions of the football stadium, a multi-pur-
pose athletic fieldhouse and new tennis, track &
field, softball, baseball, golf, soccer and swim-
ming facilities.
Another sign of Florida's commitment to
excellence within its athletic complex is the

inflated dome that houses Gator basketball, and
also transforms into an indoor track & field
facility. The O'Dome also serves as home for the
swimming & diving and gymnastic teams.
Gators love sports. So, it is no wonder that
there are 70 courts and outdoor playing fields
on campus, while the O'Connell Center and a
state-of-art recreation and fitness center are
available for indoor sports. In all, Florida offers
more than 60 intramural and club sports, and
the campus is located near many recreational

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 Leagues: For structured competitive
play, intramural leagues and tournaments are
scheduled for traditional as well as non-tradi-
tional activities. Specific leagues available for
the sports of flag football, volleyball, soccer, bas-
ketball, and softball are Women's Independent,
Co-Ed, Recreational, Men's Independent, A and
B, Graduate, Residence Hall, and Sorority.
Individuals also may compete in activities, such
as swimming, bowling, golf, track, tennis, rack-
etball, squash and wallyball. T-shirts are
awarded to winners in each division.
Sports Clubs: The Sports Club program pro-
vides structured, competitive athletic opportuni-
ties among institutions in non-varsity sports.
The program offers instruction, recreation, and
competition in approximately 35 different clubs.
Individual sports clubs that represent the
University of Florida are assisted by the Sports
Club coordinator to organize, utilize facilities,
check out equipment, and allocate general
resources for participation.
Lake Wauburg: The Lake Wauburg recre-
ational activities are located eight miles south of
the university on U.S. 441, and are available for
use by students, faculty, staff and their guests.
The specific activities and facilities available at
Lake Wauburg North include sailing, boardsail-
ing, canoeing, crewing, swimming, fishing
boats, sunbathing and sporting equipment, and
picnic facilities such as tables and grills.


The south end of the lake, located one mile
farther south on U.S. 441, offers 60 acres of land
in its natural state. For your relaxation, there are
sunbathing decks overlooking the lake and a
playing field which can accommodate most field
sports. A frisbee golf course encompasses the
park for your playing pleasure.
In addition, three areas are available for
reservation to university groups. The lodge and
pavilions can house approximately 100 persons
each, and each of these areas is provided with
barbecue grills and tables to accommodate park
guests. Call (352) 466-4112 for reservations.
All activities are free and open year-round
from noon to 6:00 p.m. Tuesday through Friday

Sunday. Both facilities are closed on Mondays.
Southwest Recreation Park: The newest addi-
tion to the growing recreational facility complex
on the campus is located in the southwest part
of the university at the comer of Hull Road and
Bledsoe Drive. The new 26-acre park offers
much-needed program facilities.
The Southwest Recreation Center contains
sports areas for basketball, volleyball, bad-
minton, aerobics, club activities, a large strength
and conditioning room, as well as six racquet-
ball courts. Shower facilities and lockers also are
provided. There is an equipment room and
appropriate office space.
The outdoor areas consist of a new quad-
softball complex, three basketball courts, ten
tennis courts and a small utility field. All out-
door facilities are lighted for evening use.

admission notice.

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

aptitude tests as noted in the application.
A satisfactory conduct record.
All junior and senior 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 fresh-
man, undergraduate transfer, postbaccalaureate,


graduate, dental, law, medical, pharmacy or
veterinary medicine student may be found in

The specific requirements for readmission (at
the same or a different level) to the university
also may be found in the appropriate sections
that 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
automatically 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 credentials fail to confirm
that the conditions for admission have been
met, the admission will be revoked, the stu-
dent's classification will be in a nondegree sta-
tus 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 that
indicate a reasonable chance for successful com-
pletion of a degree at the University of Florida.
The University Admissions Committee is
responsible for administering all admissions,
including applicants approved as exceptions to
the minimum admission requirements.
Students who plan to enter the university for
the first time will be considered for admission

Computer Requirement
Access to and on-going use of a computer
are required for all students to complete their
degree programs successfully. The university
expects each student entering the university and
continuing students entering their junior year to
acquire computer hardware and software appro-
priate to the degree program. Competency in
the basic use of a computer is a requirement for
graduation; class assignments may require use
of a computer, academic advising and registra-
tion can be done by computer and university
correspondence is often sent via e-mail.
While the university offers limited access to
computers through its computer labs, most stu-
dents are expected to purchase or lease a com-
puter that is capable of dial-up or network con-
nection to the Internet, graphical access to the
World Wide Web, and productivity functions
such as word processing and spreadsheet calcu-
lation.
For the freshman and sophomore years,
these functions can be provided by most cur-
rently available standard microcomputers with
an office software suite and printer. Appropriate
networking and Internet software is available at
no additional cost. Sample minimum computer
configurations are provided below.
Individual colleges will provide additional
requirements and recommendations. Consult
the appropriate college section in the catalog,

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 1210 and
1370 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 to assure admission or success in col-
lege, prospective applicants are urged to discuss
these data with their school counselors before
applying to the university.
Applicants Who Have Never Attended College
Please note: Students who have enrolled in an
early admission program at other postsecondary
institutions and/or earned 30 or more semester
hours of college credit are not considered fresh-
men and must apply to the university as trans-
fer 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 29. Applications for the fall class
received January 30 and after are considered on
a space-available basis only. The deadlines for
receipt of applications for other terms are listed
in the university calendar.
Admission is selective. Because of commu-
nity colleges and other state universities in
Florida, the University of Florida must limit the
number of entering freshmen. Students may
apply for admission after attending community
colleges or other universities by transferring to a
UF college in accordance with admissions stan-
dards.
The requirements for admission set forth
below give priority to those applicants whose
total record indicates the greatest likelihood of
academic success.
Admission for Florida Residents
Minimum requirements for admission con-
sideration include:
* Graduation from a regionally accredited or
state approved secondary school or the

An overall C average in high school acade-
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.
Please note: Applicants who present scores
on the G.E.D. also must present records from
secondary schools attended and standardized
test scores. The applicant's overall academic
background will be considered.

Meeting this index alone does not guarantee
admission to the university.
Any Florida student who meets the mini-
mum admission requirements and who is inter-
ested 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., admis-
sion following completion of the junior year of
high school) from superior students will be con-
sidered on an individual basis by the univer-
sity'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/

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

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.)
Offers of Admission with Outstanding
Credentials
Offers of admission with course work cur-
rently in progress are tentative, 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 program or have been enrolled as a full-
time early admitted student.
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. (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
records in time for admission to the term
desired.
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 admission.
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-


sites and applicants for readmission should consult
the appropriate sections that 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.
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 applicants
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 transfer
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 program in
teacher education must submit scores on the
SAT or the ACT. These scores should be for-
warded 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 college will contact the appli-
cant. In addition, the following requirements
also must be satisfied:
* An applicant must present a minimum of 60
semester hours (or 90 quarter hours) of
acceptable college courses, with not more
than four semester hours in military science
and/or basic required physical education, as
credit for advanced standing.
An applicant must present transcripts
verifying completion of the courses (or
acceptable substitutes) required for admission
by the college. (See appropriate college sec-
tion of this catalog.) If recommended by the






ADMISSIONS


college, an applicant lacking some require-
ments may be permitted to enroll in that col-
lege and to complete those courses if all
other requirements for admission are met;
however, such 1-2000 level courses will not
reduce the number of credits required for a
degree.
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 trans-
ferable 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. All students who register for any
composition course other than ENC 1101
must provide an SAT II writing test score,
appropriate AP or IB scores or have earned
credit for ENC 1101. Acceptable scores also
must be submitted by students who plan to
enroll in chemistry, calculus or one of the
foreign languages listed in the chart that fol-
lows. Students may substitute AP or IB
credit earned in the junior year for any of the
SAT II exams.
Consult the Academic Advising section for
course equivalents charts and information on
appropriate course selections. Students can also
consult the Schedule of Courses, the Academic
Advising Center or individual departments.
Newly admitted students must take SATII
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.

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 2233, 2311 and 3472. A grade of C
or better in MAC 1142 also permits place-
ment into MAC 2233 or MAC 2311.
Chemistry placement: Students wishing to
enroll in CHM 2040 or 2045 must present
suitable SAT II,AP or IB scores.

Writing (composition course) placement:
No placement testis required for ENC 1101.
Students who take a composition course
other than ENC 1101 as their first UF compo-
sition course must present appropriate place-
ment scores (AP, IB or SAT II) or have
already earned credit for ENC 1101. For
other composition courses, the following
applies: If you entered UF before Summer B
1995, use your SAT/ACT verbal score for
placement. If your SAT verbal score is above
560 or your ACT English score is 25 or
above, 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.)

ADMISSIONS


General Requirements: The Graduate
School requires a minimum grade average of B
for all 3-4000 level course work and acceptable
scores on the verbal, quantitative 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
Graduate School. Some colleges and depart-
ments require a reading knowledge of at least
one foreign language. Exceptions 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, transcripts
and letters of recommendation. Applicants must
provide two copies of complete 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 transcript will be
accepted as official unless it is received directly
from the registrar of the institution in which the
work was done. Official supplementary tran-
scripts are required as soon as they are available
for any work completed after an application has
been made. In general, no student who is a
graduate of a nonaccredited institution will be
considered for graduate study.
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 a
grade point average and GRE score with their
application and meet other criteria 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 satisfactory
scores on the Graduate Management Admission
Test (GMAT) for the GRE. Students applying for
admission to the Master of Business
Administration (MBA) program must submit
satisfactory scores on the GMAT. Applicants
should contact the Educational Testing Service,
Princeton, NJ 08540, for additional information.
Graduate Study in Law: Students applying
to the graduate program leading to the 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 can be considered.
All international students applying to the
Master of Business Administration program
must submit satisfactory scores from the
GMAT before their application will be con-
sidered.
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 to a particular hospital, clinic, agency
or health care institution. Failure to comply
may result in cancellation of registration.
International students whose scores on the
TOEFL and verbal portion of the GRE do not
indicate adequate writing skills are required to
write a short essay. If the skills demonstrated in
the essay are not acceptable, 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 regis-
tration forms and other information concerning
TOEFL, TSE, GMAT and GRE.


Admission to the College of
Dentistry
When to Apply: The Application Request
Card for the American Association of Dental
Schools Application Service (AADSAS) may be
obtained after May 15 from the 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
supporting documents must be returned
directly to the AADSAS no later than October
15 of the year prior to enrollment in the dental
school. Failure to meet this deadline will pre-
vent 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 application forms requesting additional
information. The submission of a preprofes-
sional committee evaluation or letters of recom-
mendation from people in academics are not
necessary until the formal application forms are
filed 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 must possess high aptitude
and academic preparation of the highest order
because of the science studies that must be mas-
tered by the dentist. The personal relationship
between patient and dentist places the latter in a
position of trust, which demands maturity,
integrity, intellectual honesty and responsibility.
A broad representation of the ethnic mixture of
the state is sought in the student body through
an active recruitment program. The college
strictly adheres to the principle of ethnic, racial,
religious and social equality among its student
body and faculty.
Generally, students applying for admission
should plan to complete the requirements for a
bachelor's degree. However, qualified students
may be accepted without a bachelor's degree,
provided they show evidence of sufficient
preparation. Applicants with an overall B aver-
age will receive strongest consideration for
admission.
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
Committee, interviews with members of this
committee will be arranged for competitive
applicants.
(Refer to the more detailed description in the
College of Dentistry bulletin.)

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

dent in relation to the load attempted will be
weighed. A genuine interest in human welfare is
important. Efficient methods of study and effec-
tive 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 Medical
College Admissions Test, preferably by the
spring preceding the submission of the applica-

men or sophomores (less than 60 hours of
credit) must submit Scholastic Aptitude Test
(SAT) or American College Test (ACT) scores
before their application for admission will be
considered.


* Graduate applicants must submit scores on
the Graduate Record Examination (GRE).
Graduate applicants for the Master of Laws
program must submit scores on the Law
School Admission Test (LSAT).
All international students applying for
admission to the Master of Business Admin-
istration (MBA) program must submit satis-
factory scores on the Graduate Management
Admission Test (GMAT) before their appli-
cation for admission can be considered.
TOEFL information and registration forms
are available in many locations outside the
United States; usually at U.S. embassies and
consulates, at offices of the United States
Information Agency, from U.S. educational com-
missions and foundations, at Binational Centers,
and from many private organizations such as
the Institute of International Education (IIE),
America-Mideast Education and Training
Services, Inc. (AMIDEAST), African American
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 are received by the Office of Admissions.
All documents must be accompanied by certi-
fied English translations and become the prop-
erty of the university. Credentials of applicants
who do not enroll will be destroyed and cannot
be returned or forwarded elsewhere.
IMPORTANT: Send all applications and
credentials to the 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 will
be sent by the university. Admission is for a
SPECIFIC term. If a student is unable to enroll
for the term indicated, 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 plans to depart for Gainesville until offi-
cial notification has been provided by the uni-


versity. A student who comes to campus with-
out a notice of admission does so entirely at his
or her own risk. The student's presence on
campus will not influence the decision for
admission.
Because of the limited resources available in
terms of faculty, staff and physical facilities, only
those international students who submit supe-
rior 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, college or major.
Students who skip a single term will be sched-
uled automatically for a registration appoint-
ment for one additional term.
How to Apply for Readmission: Applica-
tions are available from the Office of Admis-
sions, Box 114000, University of Florida, Gaines-
ville, FL 32611-4000. Forms and directions vary
with the level of readmission. In the request,
applicants should indicate the college and the
level of last enrollment at the university 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 institution.
(Note: Grades received at other institutions
are not averaged with grades received at the
University of Florida for the purpose of
meeting university grade-point average
requirements.) Students must list all institu-
tions attended and provide complete official
transcripts from each. Failure to declare
attendance at another institution could inval-
idate admission and any credits or degrees
earned. Applicants also must be in good
standing and eligible to return to each insti-
tution 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 availability at the
appropriate level, college or major. (Consult
the appropriate college section of the catalog
for specific admission requirements.)






ADMISSIONS


Satisfactory Conduct Record
* Applicants must present a satisfactory record
of conduct. Regardless of other qualifica-
tions, applicants who have experienced
major or continuing difficulties with school
or other authorities since the last enrollment
at the University of Florida may find their
application for readmission denied.
Fresh Start Program
Former undergraduate students who have
been dismissed 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 nonacade-
mic activities) may petition for undergraduate
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 course
attempts and grades received will remain on the
student's 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 responsiblefor 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

qualified high school students
and other nondegree-students
who have been permitted 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.

College Level Academic Skills Test
The CLAST is designed to test the communi-
cation and computation skills judged by state
university and community college faculty as
necessary for successful performance and pro-
gression through the baccalaureate level.
Passing scores on the test or satisfaction through
approved alternatives are required by Florida
statutes and the State Board of Education.
The test 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 alternatives) 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 require-
ment 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 mem-
bers of athletics teams.
Currently enrolled students must contact the
appropriate agency(s) to restrict release of direc-
tory information. The Office of the University
Registrar, the Division of Housing and
University Personnel Services routinely release
directory information to the public. In addition
to requesting this restriction from the Office of
the University Registrar, students who live on
campus must also request this restriction from


the Division of Housing (next to Beaty Towers).
Students who are university employees also
must request this restriction from Processing
and Records (392-1204).
Student educational records may be released
without a student's consent to school officials
who have a legitimate educational interest to
access the records. "School officials" shall
include:
An employee, agent or officer of the univer-
sity or State University System of Florida in
an administrative, supervisory, academic or
research, or support staff position;
Persons serving on university committees,
boards, and/or councils; and
Persons employed by or under contract to
the university to perform a special task,
such as an attorney or an auditor.
"Legitimate educational interest" shall mean
any authorized interest or activity undertaken in
the name of the university for which access to
an educational record is necessary or appropri-
ate to the operation of the university or to the
proper performance of the educational mission
of the university.
The university may also disclose information
from a student's educational records without a
student's consent to either individuals or enti-
ties permitted such access under applicable fed-
eral and state law.
Students have the right to review their own
educational records for information and to
determine accuracy. A photo I.D. or other equiv-
alent documentation or personal recognition by
the custodian of record will be required before
access is granted. Parents of dependent student,
as defined by the Internal Revenue Service, have
these same rights upon presentation of proof of
the student's dependent status.
If the student believes the education record
contains information that is inaccurate, mislead-
ing, or in violation of his or her rights, the stu-
dent may ask the educational institution to
amend the record. The UF Student Guide out-
lines the procedures for challenging the content
of a student record as well as the procedures
governing access to and maintenance of student
records.

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) or access
ISIS (http://www.isis.ufl.edu) to learn 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. The university
maintains the right to withhold release of a






ACADEMIC REGULATIONS

transcript if the student has an outstanding finan-
cial obligation to the university. To reflect a com-
plete academic record for undergraduate, gradu-
ate and professional students, the university will
issue only complete transcripts.

Transfer Credit Policy
In general students may transfer 60 credit
hours from community colleges as part of the
hours needed for their UF degrees, regardless of
when these hours are earned, but subject to uni-
versity and college degree requirements.
Associate of Arts degree recipients from
Florida public community colleges who con-
tinue enrollment at the school that awarded the
A.A. may be granted additional transfer credit
for one or more courses that satisfy their UF
degree requirements.
However, junior and senior level (courses
numbered 3-4000) course requirements for the
major must be completed at UF or, with permis-
sion of the student's college, at another bac-
calaureate 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.
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 U.




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. Immunizations also are required.
Audited courses are not reflected on the aca-
demic 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 pursuing a degree at
the university unless special permission is
obtained in advance from their college. The stu-
dent must be in good academic 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 under-
graduate 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 and students with
disabilities.
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 dead-
line.
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 dismissal regula-
tions. Students who leave UF without officially
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.
Contact the Office for Student Services to
begin withdrawal procedures.


Nondegree Registration
Nondegree enrollment is restricted to partici-
pants in special programs, off-campus pro-
grams, university-affiliated exchange programs,
those participants with nondegree educational
objectives at the university, and high school/col-
lege dual-credit enrollment. (Special regulations
govern high school/college dual enrollment for
academically-advanced students in Florida high
schools. Refer to Admissions 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.
Visiting Students Attending UF
Undergraduate students in good standing at
another accredited collegiate institution can
enroll full-time at UF 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 institution. Certification
to social security and veterans administration
programs also is the responsibility of the stu-
dent, who must request each institution to fur-
nish records.
Nondegree enrollment is subject to the avail-
ability of faculty, space and facilities. No appli-
cation for admission is required; forms are avail-
able from the Office of the University Registrar.
Priority for nondegree enrollment is given to UF
employees and to permanent 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






ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


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. Nondegree
credit is not applicable to a UF degree except
by subsequent admission to degree status
and successful petition for application of
such credit. Authorization to enroll as a non-
degree student in no way implies future
approval for admission as a degree-seeking
student.
Nondegree enrollment status will be denied
any student under -suspension/dismissal
from a postsecondary institution or not in
good standing at any institution previously
enrolled, including UF, even if the student
has subsequently attended another institu-
tion. Nondegree students are subject to other
regulations and restrictions imposed by the
college or department in which they wish to
enroll.
Nondegree students taking courses at the
university will be required to register for and
to attend classes under the university calen-
dar. Nondegree students must pay appropri-
ate UF fees based on course level, number of
credits and residency status.

Nondegree students must meet state of
Florida immunization requirements.




Students are responsible for satisfying all
academic objectives as defined by the instructor.
Absences count from the first class meeting.
In general, acceptable reasons for absence
from class include illness, serious family emer-
gencies, special curricular requirements (e.g.,
judging trips, field trips, professional confer-
ences), military obligation, severe weather con-
ditions, religious holidays and participation in
official university activities such as music per-
formances, athletic competition or debate.
Absences from class for court-imposed legal
obligations (e.g., jury duty or subpoena) must be
excused. Other sound reasons may be offered by
the student.
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 labo-
ratory in which they are registered, and who
have not contacted the department which offers


the course to indicate their intent, may be
dropped from the course. The department will
notify students dropped from courses or labora-
tories 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 depart-
ment chair.
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 or other
scheduled academic activity to observe a
religious holy day of their faith, upon notify-
ing their instructor.
Students shall be permitted a reasonable
amount of time to make up the material or
activities covered in their absence.
Students shall not be penalized because of
absence from class or any other scheduled
academic activity resulting from religious
observances.
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, assembly
exams take priority over time-of-class exams.
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 giv-
ing make-up exams will make the necessary
adjustments.




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

approved sequential courses.
N* No grade reported: not in GPA
I* Incomplete: not in GPA
Failing Grades No Grade Points
E Failure
U Unsatisfactory
WF Withdrew failing
NG No grade reported
I Incomplete
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 computa-
tion of the grade point average. For purposes of
determining grade point average after the initial
receipt of an I* or N* grade, the three summer
terms are considered collectively as a single
term. I* and N* grades are not assigned to grad-
uating students; they receive grades of I or NG.
An 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 incomplete
grades.
If make-up work requires classroom or labo-
ratory attendance in a subsequent term, the stu-
dents should not register for the course again;
instead, the student must officially audit the
course and pay audit fees (refer to special fees
and charges in the Expenses section of the cata-
log).
If the make-up work does not require class-
room or laboratory attendance, the instructor
and student should decide on an appropriate
plan and deadline for completing the course.
Upon completion of the course, the instruc-
tor will submit a change of grade to the regis-
trar's office. These procedures cannot be used to
repeat a course for a different grade. (An I grade
should not be assigned to a student who never
attended class; instead, instructors may assign a
failing grade, or no grade at all which will result
in assignment of N*.)

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-
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 num-
ber of hours attempted. (Exclude hours
attempted under the S/U Option.)

Repeat Course Work
University of Florida course work which is
repeated is counted in the computation of a


student'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.

volves only University of Florida course work:

ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


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 dismissal 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 dis-
missal 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 dismissal regulations that
apply to undergraduate students also apply to
postbaccalaureate students. All actions taken to
enforce these regulations shall be reflected by
notations on the student's academic record;
some of these notations can be permanent.

Petitions
When an academic regulation appears to
result in undue hardship, students may petition
for waiver of the regulation.
In general, petitions for waiver of an aca-
demic regulation for the current term should be
directed to the school or college in which the
student is enrolled. For example, petitions to
drop or add after the 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 Uni-
versity Senate Committee on Student Petitions.
Petitions approved by the committee will be
reflected on the student's transcript.
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 regulations.

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 consider-
ing problems in an unbiased way, the ombuds-
man 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


academic probation are intended to specify the
achievement standards required to graduate; to
identify unsatisfactory academic performance at
an early date; to provide occasion for counseling;
and to give students whose ultimate success is in
question further opportunity to demonstrate
their ability to meet academic expectations.
* Students may be placed on probation by
their college for failure to maintain normal
academic progress in their degree program.
College probation will be removed when the
college determines that satisfactory academic
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 student
will be suspended from the university

Dismissal
Academic dismissal from the university
denies registration privileges to students who
could not graduate if they continued at their cur-
rent level of academic achievement. Academic
dismissals identify students whose performance
indicates that they will not fulfill graduation
requirements and encourages students to leave
the university to investigate other alternatives as
soon as a high probability of failure is evident.
Students with a grade point deficit of 15 or
more in their University of Florida course
work shall be dismissed from the university
for a minimum of one term and their
advance registration will be canceled.
Students who are dismissed 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 dis-
missal will be placed on final scholarship
probation. If the grade point deficit is still 15
or more at the end of the term, students will
be dismissed without possibility of register-
ing, 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 dismissed 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 dismissed 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.






ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


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.


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.
Computer Competency
*Competency in the basic use of a computer
is a requirement for graduation. Refer to the
Admissions sections for specific information.
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 depart-
ment and minor program of study (if applica-
ble). Minors are awarded only in conjunction
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.
A student completing two majors that have the
same degree, i.e., Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor
of Science, will receive a single degree. The tran-
script will list the degree and the two majors.
Extension Work Restrictions
* 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 designated courses that involve
substantial writing for a total of 24,000 words
and six credits of course work that involve
numerical analyses. Refer to the Gordon Rule
(Communication and Computation Require-
ment) 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
section.
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 dismissal,
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 nine credits prior to gradua-
tion 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
www.advising.ufl.edu
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.
University Responsibilities: The faculty,
administration and staff share a responsibility to
provide accurate information and effective
advice. The Office of the Provost is responsible
for providing students, faculty and other advis-
ing staff with accurate information in the cata-
log, schedule of courses and other publications.
The Academic Advising Center is responsi-
ble for acting as an information and referral cen-
ter to provide faculty advisers and students
with timely and accurate information on univer-
sity-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 academic
advice is available and accessible to all students
within the college or school.
Student Responsibilities: Students ultimately
are responsible for knowing and fulfilling all
university, college and major requirements for
graduation.

Universal Tracking
UF has implemented the Universal Tracking
to provide each student with a detailed plan for
graduation. The tracking audit includes infor-
mation on what the student has already accom-
plished academically and what the student
needs to accomplish 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.
A student's academic classification 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 informa-
tion to help students select a different college if
there is continued academic difficulty meeting
the requirements for the 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 to 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 critical tracking courses.
The universal tracking system is available on-
line. This feature allows students to match their
academic records to the degree requirements 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 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 maxi-
mum 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 the exams and have their scores reported
to the university before enrolling or, at the latest,
prior to the end of the first term of enrollment;
students who begin in the summer must have
taken the exam(s) and had them reported prior
to the end of their first fall term.
Advanced Placement Program
A student entering the university offers an
examination score as evidence of completion of
a college-level course taken in high school. If the
results of the examination meet the require-
ments listed in the charts below, the student
may receive university credit. The courses listed
below indicate the approximate UF course
equivalencies that will appear on the student's
UF transcript. AP credit will appear on the stu-
dent'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 equivalents chart
awards gen ed credit.
AP English, history, art history, government
and politics, music theory and psychology
count as 6000 words toward Gordon Rule
communication.
AP mathematics, statistics and computer sci-
ence count toward Gordon Rule computation.
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.

ACADEMIC ADVISING


College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
Students may receive as many as 30 semes-
ter hours credit. CLEP examination scores must
meet the minimums established by the State
University System. CLEP testing is available on
campus periodically and is administered by the
Office of Instructional Resources.
The university awards credit for CLEP
examinations based on the following scaled
scores:


CLEP

NOTE: CLEP credit may not be used to ful-
fill the general education requirements.
Students who score a minimum 490 or
higher on the natural sciences examination will
receive three semester hours of credit in both
biological and physical science.


Students should consider seriously their
decision about taking the CLEP general exami-
nation in English. Experience has shown that
those who score below the 75th percentile are
often handicapped because they have not had
college courses in composition. However, those
students who do decide to take the CLEP
English examination are required to take the
essay option so that their scores will be based in
part on a writing sample.
CLEP Subject Area Examinations: If English
subject examinations (Freshman English or
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 for any composition course
except ENC 1101, all freshmen will be required
to present an SAT II writing achievement test
score or appropriate AP or IB scores. Scores also
must be submitted by students who plan to
enroll in chemistry or calculus, or French,
German, Latin and Spanish (if students have
some prior study of these languages elsewhere).
Students may substitute AP/IB credit for any
SAT II examinations. Consult the SAT II place-
ment 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.

Gordon Rule
Communication
To graduate, students must complete with
grades of C or higher, courses that involve sub-
stantial writing for a total of 24,000 words.
Courses that count toward this requirement will
be in one of three categories:
course work that requires at least 2,000
written words
Gordon Rule credit 2,000 words;
course work that requires at least 4000
written words
Gordon Rule credit 4,000 words;

General Education

The general education program offers
students an opportunity to develop as individu-
als 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 stu-
dents enhance their intellectual maturity.
Take courses in the following areas:
Composition (C)
Composition courses equip students with
the skills necessary to complete the reading and
writing requirements of their disciplines. In
addition to fulfilling a 6,000 word Gordon Rule
requirement, composition courses offer instruc-
tion in methods of writing, conventions of stan-
dard written English, reading and comprehen-
sion skills, and types of expository and
argumentative writing. These courses are writ-
ing-intensive and require extensive practice;
writers receive feedback for revision.
Courses in composition can be found pri-
marily in the English department and the
Center for Written and Oral Communication.
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.






ACADEMIC ADVISING


Humanities (H)
Provides students with an appreciation of
the human condition and the cultural and artis-
tic values of others. By exploring the nature of
history, culture, literature and the arts students
learn to think critically about the past and about
traditions and values that have shaped our
world. Students also will examine moral and
ethical issues as well as the evolution of science,
society and culture.
Courses in this area can be found in the
departments of African and Asian languages &
literatures, Afro-American studies, anthropol-
ogy, architecture, astronomy, art, botany, clas-
sics, 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 in the
departments of African and Asian languages &
literatures, agriculture, anthropology, architec-
ture, criminology, economics, education, exercise
science, food & resource economics, geography,
health science, linguistics, recreation, political
science, psychology, religion, sociology, telecom-
munication 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 in the
departments of agronomy, anthropology, astron-
omy, botany, chemistry, entomology & nematol-
ogy, environmental engineering, forestry, geog-
raphy, 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,
it provides the means to understand the signifi-
cance of world events and it helps develop an
appreciation for diversity through the study of
nations, gender, culture, race, ethnicity 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.
Courses taken in a pre-approved UF study
abroad program can be applied toward the six-
hour international studies and diversity require-
ment, if approved by an adviser, and in addi-
tion to fulfilling credit in other categories. Such
courses must be approved in advance by the
department, certified by OISP (Office of
International Studies and Programs) and taken
in a foreign setting.

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) Students can take courses at the 1000,
2000, 3000 or 4000 level; in most colleges, students
can pursue completion of these requirements
throughout their undergraduate experience.
(2) First-year students generally take intro-
ductory classes to complete area requirements.
Those who have the academic background and
the interest can take more advanced classes, but
they should consult an academic adviser.
(3) Requirements M (mathematical sciences),
P (physical sciences) and B (biological sciences)
include the study of pure science (e.g., physics,
chemistry and calculus) and their technological
applications (e.g., nuclear energy, environmental
science and computer theory). Students should
pursue a balanced program of pure and applied
sciences to complete these requirements.
(4) All general education courses are identi-
fied at the back of the catalog under department
course listings. General education courses have
a letter designation after the course entry, which
corresponds to the first letter of the category. For
example: AMH 2010, United States to 1877, ful-
fills three credits in the humanities (H) category.
(5) Advanced Placement (AP) and Inter-
national Baccalaureate (IB) credit can be applied
to general education requirements.
(6) CLEP credit may not be used to satisfy
general education requirements.
Choice of Major: Impact on General Education
Students should choose general education
courses appropriate to their particular major.
Some majors require specific general education
courses. Refer to your major's semester-by-
semester tracks for specific information.


Preprofessional Programs
PreLaw
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.
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
letters of evaluation to law schools. Files for let-
ters 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 of the
junior year).

Premedical, Predental and Preoptometry
The university allows a premedical, predental
or preoptometry student to major in any pro-
gram offered by the university. 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
preprofessional curricula, the Office of Health
and Legal Professions Advising acts as a clear-
inghouse 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 certification
to professional schools.
Required Core Courses
The preprofessional student must satisfy the
following core requirements (usually prior to
application to professional schools):
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
2049).
One year of college mathematics with
one term of analytic geometry and calcu-
lus (MAC 2311) and at least one semester
of statistics (STA 2023) are recommended.
One year of college-level English.






ACADEMIC ADVISING


These courses will also meet the basic
requirements for schools of chiropractic, osteo-
pathic and podiatric medicine.
Students should consult the catalogs of the
schools to which they intend to apply for addi-
tional requirements. A list of suggested elective
courses for preprofessional students is available
in the Office of Health and Legal Professions
Advising. The list includes courses in biochem-
istry, chemistry, microbiology and zoology,
which should be taken in addition to the
required courses.
Besides meeting the preprofessional course
requirements, students should gain experience
in the health care delivery environment. Such
experience may be obtained by participation in
the programs of the National Preprofessional
Honor Society (Alpha Epsilon Delta), the
Minority Preprofessional Association (MPA) and
the Preprofessional Service Organization (PSO)
at the university. Details and applications are
available in the Office of Health and Legal
Professions Advising.
Students at the junior/senior level must be
certain that they 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.
January: Contact Office of Health and
Legal Professions Advising to begin
application procedures.

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 pre-
professional 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, including two science
or mathematics courses. Nonscience courses
should be solid, academic courses. Lighter loads
or easy courses do not enhance your record.
Honors courses are recommended for superior
students. After your first term, maintain 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 invitation-only program for stu-
dents who have shown potential for superior


academic performance. After admission to the
university, invitations are sent to all students
who have scored 1350 (test taken after March
1995) or above on the SAT or 30 composite on
the ACT. Further, they must have an academic
high school grade point average of not less than
3.8 as computed by the university. These stu-
dents are eligible for special honors classes and
housing in an honors dormitory. To remain in
the program, students must enroll in at least one
honors course each semester in the first two
years and maintain an overall grade point aver-
age of 3.0. For more information, explore the
honors web site at http://www.clas.ufl.edu/
clas/departments/honors.
Students who do not qualify may apply for
the program after demonstrating their academic
capabilities during the fall semester of their first
year. Honors requirements are not in addition to
general education requirements, but may be
used to satisfy these requirements. The small
classes and the academic ability of the students
make possible more thorough inquiry into
course materials and more independent work.
Students enhance their skills through extensive
reading, writing and oral presentations.
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 a major.
Honors programs within each college lead to
the baccalaureate degree with honors, high hon-
ors or highest honors.

President's Honor Roll
Students who achieve a perfect 4.0 GPA with
at least 12 hours of graded academic course
work (no S-U) in the fall or spring semesters will
receive recognition on the President's Honor
Roll. Each student so honored will receive the
President's Honor Roll certificate.

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. Subject areas include language, culture
and history; marine, forest and topical ecology;
environmental engineering; business and public
relations; fine arts; journalism; architecture; and
wildlife management. Study-abroad programs
satisfy the general education international
studies and diversity requirement and also may
fulfill requirements for a major or minor, as well


as general education requirements and UF sum-
mer residency.
International Student and Scholar Services
(ISSS) coordinates with government and univer-
sity agencies to provide the following: evalua-
tion of international student financial state-
ments; assistance in immigration matters; the
issuance of IAP-66s and I-20s; counseling on
academic, financial and cultural issues (includ-
ing mental health counseling); community rela-
tions; orientation programs; and cross-cultural

Fisher School of

Accounting
www.cba.ufl.edu/fsoa
Accounting has been one of the basic aca-
demic 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. The school's
degree programs are consistently ranked in the
top ten in the nation by various academic and
professional surveys. Most recently (1997), the
graduate and undergraduate programs were
ranked fifth and seventh respectively 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 new accreditation standards for all of its
accounting programs. UF's undergraduate and
graduate programs in accounting and business
were re-accredited by AACSB in 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.
Students who choose to complete the four-
year undergraduate program will receive the
Bachelor of Science in Accounting. These gradu-
ates will have the requisite accounting, business
and general education to pursue a variety of
career opportunities in accounting and business
and to apply to graduate and professional
degree programs in accounting, business or law.
Students wishing to specialize in professional
accounting should complete the 3/2 program.
The recommended curriculum to prepare for
a professional career in accounting is the five-
year 3/2 program, which results in the joint
awarding of the Bachelor of Science in Account-
ing and the Master of Accounting upon satisfac-
tory completion of the 152-hour program. The
recommended 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
concentrate in an accounting specialty; it also
provides knowledge of basic accounting and the


business and related disciplines. Details con-
cerning the 3/2 program, including the special-
ization 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 informa-
tion also can be obtained by contacting the
Fisher School of Accounting, Box 117166,
University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611-
7166.
Prospective students should know about the
five-year postsecondary education requirement
to sit for the Certified Public Accountants exam-
ination in the state of Florida. Contact the
Florida Board of Accountancy, 2610 NW 43rd
Street, Suite 1A, Gainesville, FL 32606.

Faculty
The Fisher School of Accounting has 19 fac-
ulty members, all with Ph.D. degrees from the
nation's leading universities. The faculty 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. Upsilon Chapter at UF
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 to promote professional awareness. Beta
Alpha Psi co-sponsors the Graduate Accounting
Conference, which annually attracts more than
200 accounting practitioners, and co-sponsors the
spring banquet. Members of Beta Alpha Psi pro-
vide services to the school through the tutoring
program and peer counseling. Service to the com-
munity is provided in the form of the VITA (vol-
untary 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 3000-level or above accounting courses at UF
with a cumulative 3.2 average in these courses;
and
A 3.0 cumulative average for all work com-
pleted in the junior and senior years at UF


Graduate: For membership, a graduate student
is a student who has completed at least one
5000-level or higher accounting course.
A 3.1 cumulative average in 3000-level or

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 through the student activity fees.
The council serves as a liaison between account-
ing students and faculty. At the beginning of
the fall and spring semesters, each 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 nonvoting members of the council,
and after attendance at three consecutive meet-
ings, are eligible for voting status. Students on
the council can participate on a number of
committees. Officers are elected by the voting
members at the end of each semester to 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 professional pro-
grams to accounting students, often in coopera-
tion with Beta Alpha Psi or the Florida Account-
ing Association. These programs expose students
to accounting in public, private, industrial and
government practices.
Florida Accounting Association
The Florida Accounting Association (FAA) is
a student organization that encourages profes-
sional career development and increases social
'interaction among accounting students.
Membership is open to all students enrolled in
the Fisher School and to prospective accounting
majors currently enrolled in ACG 2021C.
Application forms are available in the Fisher
School office and may be submitted at any time.
Dues are collected each semester.
FAA functions are planned by an executive
committee consisting of the president, vice-pres-
ident, treasurer, secretary and social coordinator.
Elections are held early 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
semiformal 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

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
accounting faculty and students. The center
publishes the Journal of Accounting Literature,
sponsors research seminars and a biannual con-
ference, produces a working paper series, and
serves as a research information source for fac-
ulty and students. The professional education
component of the center serves the business and
professional communities and heightens the
school's visibility 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 pro-
grams 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
automatically will be classified as accounting
students. This classification will remain as long
as the student meets the continuation require-
ments described below.
All other natives who want to change their
major to accounting should apply to the Fisher
School Office. Transfer students apply through
the university's Office of Admissions.
Continuation Policies for Native Students
Freshmen and sophomores with an account-
ing major must comply with the following to
remain in the program:
*Students must complete ACG 2021C with a
grade of B by completion of 60 credit hours.
* Students are allowed two attempts, including
drops, to achieve a B grade in ACG 2021C.
* Comply with all universal tracking provisions.
*Students must maintain a minimum 3.0 over-
all GPA.*
* Upon satisfactory completion of all freshman
and sophomore year requirements, including
general education, preprofessional, CLAST
an AA degree and a 3.0 minimum GPA, the
student will shift from continuation status to
retention status (2.0 required GPA).
Undergraduate Transfer Applicant Pool
The Fisher School of Accounting uses an
applicant pool for undergraduate admissions.


All applicants who meet minimum standards
are placed into a pool from which the most
qualified are selected each term for admission.
Because of this process, most admission deci-
sions are not made until well after the applica-
tion deadline has passed.
It is unlikely that all students who meet the
minimum standards will be admitted. A Fisher
School of Accounting faculty committee is
responsible for admission decisions, which are
not based solely on GPA. Factors such as per-
formance in any accounting courses completed
prior to application and the overall quality of
the student's academic records are considered
for admission to the Fisher School.
Minimum Standards for the Applicant Pool
A student will be considered for admission
to the Fisher School if the following are met:
* Completion of, or in the process of complet-
ing, at least 60 semester hours of course work
at an accredited institution;
The school requires 19 semester hours of pre-
professional course work. Although a student
will be considered for admission upon comple-
tion of the 12 preprofessional credit hours
described below, all preprofessional courses are
prerequisites for 3-4000 level courses. Not hav-
ing completed all 19 credit hours upon admis-
sion will delay progress toward graduation.
The following preprofessional courses must
be completed at the time of application:
* ACG 2021C Introduction to Financial Account-
ing, or equivalent, with a minimum 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. Students are allowed a maxi-
mum of two attempts, including drops, to
achieve a B grade in ACG 2021C.
* MAC 2233 Survey of Calculus 1, or equivalent.
CLEP credit is not accepted the calculus
requirement. Four credits for the AP examina-
tion in calculus will satisfy the MAC 2233
requirement.
Students who have taken calculus at state
institutions in Florida can satisfy MAC 2233
by satisfactory completion of MAC 1311 or
2311.
AND
*Two of the following four preprofessional
courses may be in process at the time of appli-
cation, but two courses must be completed
successfully prior to enrollment.
ECO 2013 Principles of Macroeconomics, or
equivalent.
ECO 2023 Principles of Microeconomics, or
equivalent.
CGS 2531 Introduction to Computer Software,
or equivalent.
STA 2023 Introduction to Statistics 1, or equiv-
alent.
*A 3.0 cumulative GPA, calculated on all
attempts of all college-level course work. If a
student has attended the University of Florida


and another institution, the GPA calculation
will be based only on the UF course work.
SIn the case of a transfer student from the state
of Florida, an Associate of Arts degree (AA) is
required prior to enrollment in the Fisher
School of Accounting.
*Satisfactory completion of the College Level
Academic Skills Tests (CLAST).

Undergraduate (B.S.Ac.) Admissions Policies
Meeting minimum standards is required for
admission to the applicant pool; it does not
guarantee admission to the Fisher School.
Admission is selective and is subject to enroll-
ment capacity. Priority in admission will be
given to those applicants whose record indicates
the greatest likelihood for success.
Admission requirements for the Fisher
School are subject to change. Please check the
Fisher School office (BUS 267) for the current
standards.
Admission to the university does not guar-
antee admission to the Fisher School. Ad-
mission to the Fisher School does not constitute
admission to the 3/2 program; this requires a
separate application to the Graduate School.
Admission eligibility standards for UF stu-
dents apply equally to transfer students who
received their AA degrees from a Florida public
community college and who have passed all
parts of CLAST.
Community college transfers are cautioned
that ACG 2071, or its equivalent, will count
toward the B.S.Ac. degree as elective credit;
native students must take another elective. In
addition, 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 should
avoid such courses as Business Law, Principles
of Marketing, Principles of Finance, Principles
of Management and accounting courses
beyond the introductory level.
A maximum of four semester credits may be
allowed for courses taken during the first two
years which are available only as third and
fourth-year professional courses in the War-
rington College of Business Administration. 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 col-
lege course, waivers may be granted on an indi-
vidual basis, but the student will be required to
take another course in the area waived. The
substitute course will be specified by the depart-
ment. Community college students should
note that a minimum of 60 hours of course
work for the B.S.Ac. degree must be at the 3000
or above course level.
These same standards apply equally to
transfer students from four-year colleges within
the Florida state university system who have
earned the A.A. degree and passed all parts of
CLAST. Prospective students from other than






COLLEGES


SUS institutions or applicants who have not
completed the A.A. and CLAST are not guaran-
teed admission to the Fisher School. These stu-
dents will be considered on a case-by-case basis
and will be admitted selectively when space per-
mits. Prospective accounting students attending
other four-year institutions should follow a
course of study similar to the general education
and preprofessional requirements taken by fresh-
men and sophomores at UF. Courses that are a
part of the third, fourth and fifth-year require-
ments should be avoided prior to entering UF.
The Office of the University Registrar deter-
mines the transferability of credit earned by
course work at other institutions. Credit for
vocational or technical courses, repeats of previ-
ous courses taken, or credits from nonaccredited
institutions will not be transferred to UF for
degree credit.

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 associate director and undergraduate
advisers are available for counseling on an
appointment basis at the school's office (BUS
267). All students are advised to seek guidance
well in advance of registration periods.

Universal Tracking
It is the student's responsibility to be aware
of academic requirements. Universal tracking
audits are mailed each semester; it lists all of the
requirements for a particular program and indi-
cates whether or not the student has met each
requirement. Students should pay close atten-
tion to these audits and should seek assistance
from the appropriate adviser. 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.
Students who have been admitted to the Fisher
School will have their substitution forms
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 that offers the
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 to the
Fisher School of Accounting, the student may
not take y preprofessional, accounting or busi-
ness core course work at any other institution.
Students who have taken 3-4000 level
courses at accredited universities prior to enter-
ing the Fisher School should submit course sub-
stitution forms. A maximum of one 3-4000 level
approved business core course may count
toward the student's undergraduate degree.
Accounting course work taken elsewhere
generally is not substitutable for the accounting
courses required for the B.S.Ac. degree.

Satisfactory-Unsatisfactory Grade Option
An undergraduate student may request the
S-U Option only for courses counted as elec-
tives. Courses taken to satisfy preparatory
course or degree requirements for the M.Acc.
program may not be taken on an S-U basis.

Unsatisfactory Performance
Students who do not make satisfactory aca-
demic progress will be dropped from the
accounting program. In addition to university
regulations concerning unsatisfactory perfor-
mance, the school will exclude students from
further registration for the following reasons:
Freshmen and Sophomores:
1. The student does not comply with the mini-
mum universal tracking requirements.
2. The student has not earned a B grade in
ACG 2021C after two attempts (including
withdraw).
3. The student's cumulative grade point aver-
age falls below 3.0 and remains there after
one subsequent term of enrollment.
4. The student withdraws from the university
three times while classified as an AC student.
Juniors and Seniors:
1. The student earns two grades below C in
accounting courses numbered above 3000
regardless of whether the student was in the
Fisher School 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 remains there after
one subsequent term of enrollment.
4. The student withdraws from the university
three times after admission to the Fisher
School of Accounting.
5. The student fails to register for a required
3-4000 level accounting course for two con-
secutive semesters of enrollment.
For purposes of the above policies, the fol-
lowing rules apply to the definition of a term:
Any term for which a student registers for
courses at the university 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 con-
sidered to have registered for one term).
Students not in the Fisher School who reg-
ister for 3-4000 level accounting courses must
comply with items one and two above or they
will be denied further registration in account-
ing courses.

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
two courses.
The drop policy applies to all drops taken at
the university, regardless of whether the student
was in the Fisher School at the time of the drop.
The policy is intended to cover legitimate
causes. There are no free drops and students
should exercise judgment when dropping
courses.
All drops become part of the student's offi-
cial record and will be recorded on the student's
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
by the associate 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 drop/add and prior to the period gov-
erned 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 drop is not official 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 the university. No exceptions are
permitted.
Elective and general education courses may
be taken outside the university only if:
SThe 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 associate director.

graduation to confirm that all degree require-
ments will be met pending successful comple-
tion of the remaining term. 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 prescribed course work, and
* The last 30 hours of course work must have
been completed in residence at the Fisher
School with an AC classification.
* The student must have completed a mini-
mum of 16 semester credit hours of 3-4000
level accounting courses at the Fisher School.
* 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

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 com-
puted in the UF 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 is recognized by
the designation of honors, high honors and
highest honors. Students must earn a 3.2 grade
point average (honors), a 3.6 grade point aver-
age (high honors), and a 3.8 grade point average
(highest honors) on all junior and senior level

Satellite Campuses and Degree Programs:
Recognizing the specialized needs of nontradi-
tional students, the university established
Bachelor of Science degree programs at its Fort
Lauderdale (FLREC), West Florida (WFREC)






AGRICULTURE


and Ft. Pierce (FPREC) Research and Education
Centers.
The University of Florida's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) offers off-cam-
pus degree programs in environmental horticul-
ture or entomology at Fort Lauderdale; environ-
mental horticulture or natural resource
conservation at Milton; and horticultural sci-
ences and agribusiness management (food and
resource economics) at Ft. Pierce. Students
attending classes at these satellite campuses first
earn an Associate of Arts degree from a Florida
public community college or other accredited
academic institution, then apply for admission
to the University of Florida. Once accepted, stu-
dents can pursue a Bachelor of Science without
moving to Gainesville. University of Florida fac-
ulty teach and advise students. Upon comple-
tion of the requirements for the degree, the
degree is conferred by UF.
Satellite campus students are eligible for UF
and College of Agriculture scholarships. Courses
are also available to the general public as contin-
uing education courses.

Requirements for Admission
Academic Advising
Academic advising within the College of
Agriculture is provided by college faculty. Each
major has an undergraduate coordinator and
undergraduate advisers. Students interested in
majoring in one of the academic programs in the
college should see the undergraduate coordina-
tor or an undergraduate adviser for the major. A
list of undergraduate coordinators and advisers
is available in 2002 McCarty Hall. It is college
policy that each student should discuss his/her
academic plans with a faculty adviser in his/her
major prior to each registration and consult with
their faculty adviser regarding academic and
career counseling matters.
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.FR.C.
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 deter-
mining admission to a major. Requirements for
admission will vary depending upon majors;
therefore, it is important to complete all require-
ments identified for the major.

Computer Requirement
Refer to the university's home page at
http://www.ufl.edu or the CIRCA home page at
http://www.circa.ufl.edu/computers for general
information as well as a link to the college's web
page for specific requirements for each program.
Access to and on-going use of a computer is
required of all students. Computers are being
used increasingly for completion of classroom
assignments, accessing the Internet, exchange of
e-mail, etc. The college policy is designed to
provide maximum flexibility. Below are the col-
lege minimum and recommended hardware and

You might consider obtaining the above con-
figuration in a laptop computer so that you
have the ability to participate in classroom and
Internet activities while on campus. Presently,
there are only limited course offerings requiring
such capability. Please be aware that a laptop
computer is typically 25% more costly than an
equivalent desktop computer. Also, it is advis-
able to purchase a laptop that is modular and
upgradeable (RAM, hard drive, CD-ROM). It is
likely that your computer (laptop or desktop)
will require upgrading during your university
education.
There are several circumstances in which
you might not want to follow guidelines listed
above. These include: 1) You already own a
computer, with software and peripherals, and
would like to use this to meet the student com-
puter requirement. 2) You would prefer to lease
a computer instead of actually purchasing one.
Either of these are acceptable; however, you are
responsible for meeting any assigned work that
requires computer use, using your computer
software and hardware. It is your responsibility
to resolve any compatibility problems that
might arise.
The college guidelines listed above have
been chosen for maximum compatibility with
computer activities on campus, although you
may have to obtain additional software to meet
the requirements of a specific course.

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

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 uait. 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






COLLEGES


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 profes-
sional 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 person-
ality. 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 sepa-
rately 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 sched-
ule 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 respon-
sibility for registering for the proper courses, for
fulfilling all requirements for the degree and for
completing all courses. Each semester the stu-
dent must consult with his or her undergradu-


ate 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 ben-
efits require a minimum enrollment of 12 hours.
It is the student's responsibility to verify the
minimum course load for these benefits.
Transfer Credit Policy
Students may transfer a total of 60 credit
hours from community colleges as part of the
hours needed for their UF degree, regardless of
when these hours are earned, but subject to uni-
versity and college degree requirements.
Courses in excess of 60 hours will be recorded
on the student's University of Florida transcript
and may be used to satisfy curriculum require-
ments, but such courses will not reduce the
number of credit hours required to earn a UF
degree.
The college and the school require each stu-
dent to complete all required 3000 and 4000 level
courses and approved, department or specializa-
tion electives at the University of Florida to earn
a baccalaureate degree. Some course work may
be taken at another accredited four-year institu-
tion of higher education with advance approval
of the dean. The last 30 semester hours to be
applied toward a degree must be completed in
residence in the College of Agriculture.
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







summer A and summer B terms, the deadline is
4:00 p.m., Wednesday, the second week of
classes. Once the S-U Option is approved, stu-
dents may not revert to a letter grade.
Probation and Dismissal
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 dismissed by the univer-
sity for one semester. While on university dis-
missal, a student may not enroll at any other
institution. After the one semester dismissal,
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 dis-
missed 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 assis-
tant dean for undergraduate academic 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
0) deficit points. As long as a student has a
deficit record, (s)he must continue removing
three deficit points per semester until his/her
overall UF grade point average is 2.0. Failure to
remove three deficit points per semester will
result in college suspension for one semester.
During college suspension, a student cannot
register as a College of Agriculture student for
that semester. With approval of the student's
undergraduate adviser and the assistant dean,
the student may complete approved courses at
another 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 for
each course taken at that institution. Upon
returning to UF, a student must remove a mini-
mum of three deficit points per semester to con-
tinue 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 approved
by an adviser before they will be processed
by 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 pro-
gram with a coordinated set of courses in com-
puter sciences. Students enrolled in any major
program in the college may pursue this certifi-
cate program.


AGRICULTURE


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.

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 semester
credits of residence work required for the bac-
calaureate 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.
The College of Agriculture and the School of
Forest Resources and Conservation require each
student to complete 60 semester hours or more
of 3000-level or above course work at the
University of Florida to earn a baccalaureate
degree. With approval of the dean, some course
work may be taken at an accredited four year
institution of higher learning offering baccalau-
reate degrees. The last 30 semester hours to be
applied toward a degree must be completed in
residence in the College of Agriculture.
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.






COLLEGES


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 aca-
demic unit requires an approved research pro-
ject or creative work. Students seeking high
honors or highest honors should consult their
undergraduate adviser and the dean's office for
specific requirements. Postbaccalaureate stu-
dents 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 com-
plete the requirement. The courses listed repre-
sent 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.

SAgricultural and Biological
Engineering
Bachelor of Science in Engineering (Agri-
cultural 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 engineer-
ing 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 bio-
logical courses is required. Students will register
in the College of Engineering. Refer to that col-
lege for curriculum.

Agricultural Education and
Communication
The agricultural education and communica-
tion major prepares students for careers in agri-
cultural education, agricultural communication,
and leadership as well as training positions in
agricultural, extension, community and govern-
ment agencies. Three specializations are offered
in the department: teaching, agricultural com-
munication and agricultural leadership educa-
tion. Each requires a common core of courses in
technical agriculture and preprofessional educa-
tion. 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 certification. Each applicant who applies for
a full-time Florida teaching certificate must pass
the Florida Teacher Certification Examination,
and have a 2.5 GPA on all technical agriculture
course work.

AGRICULTURAL COMMUNICATION
SPECIALIZATION
This specialization is designed for individuals
who wish to enter communication professions
that are involved with the agricultural industry;
i.e., publications, electronic media, graphic arts,
advertising or public relations. Students desir-
ing to enter this specialization must meet the
department and college lower division require-

stitutes an agreement to accept assignment in
the center where the objectives of the internship
program can best be achieved. Failure to accept
an assignment relieves the department of any
further responsibility to provide internship
experiences and courses for the candidate.

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 process-
ing, power and machinery, irrigation, instru-
mentation, information multi-media resources,
safety and construction techniques are comple-
mented 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, biological systems management
and environmental systems management.
Students should consult a department adviser
for guidance.

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

ground for entry into the professions of den-
tistry, medicine and veterinary medicine.
Honors: To qualify for graduation with hon-
ors, high honors or highest honors, a student
must have a junior/senior level grade point
average of 3.50, 3.75, and 3.85, respectively. (For
purposes of honors, UF junior/senior level
courses are defined as all courses taken at this
university after the student has earned three AG
credits, wherever taken.) In addition to a mini-
mum GPA requirement, a candidate for high
honors or highest honors must obtain grades of
B or better in at least four credits of MCB 4905
and in one of the following courses: MCB
4303L, MCB 5458 or PCB 5136L. A thesis which
describes the results of the research must be
written in scientific style and submitted to the
faculty research supervisor and to the under-
graduate 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 sub-
mitted to the college office at 2002 McCarty Hall
at least three days before graduation. The final
decision on the honor distinction that the stu-
dent 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
initiating the research project.

College of Architecture
www.arch.ufl.edu
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 1701, 1702, 2201; 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 disciplines (architecture, landscape archi-
tecture and interior design). Research and ser-
vice projects conducted through the research
centers and institutes 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
graduate studies. The AFA Library also main-
tains its own Rare Book Collection for scholarly
research. Services include a professional refer-
ence service ready to assist in guidance and
information searches. Students may use addi-
tional resources in the university libraries.
The Departments of Architecture and Land-
scape 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.
Students considering application to the
College of Architecture should anticipate as part
of their budget planning expenditures for com-
puters, travel, equipment and tools essential to
their education as design, planning or construc-
tion professionals. For further information con-
tact the appropriate department/school.
Student Aid
Students interested in part-time employ-
ment, assistantships, fellowships, loans, prizes
and awards are referred to individual depart-
ments and the university's Office for Student
Financial Affairs in Criser Hall.

General Admission Protocols All Students
To be eligible for admission at the junior
year into the College of Architecture, students
must have completed all requirements for the
A.A. degree, passed the College Level Academic
Skills Test (CLAST) and completed two sequen-
tial foreign language courses in secondary
school or 8-10 credits at the postsecondary level
(or documented an equivalent level of profi-
ciency). Admission at the junior/senior level is
open to applicants who have completed all gen-
eral education and preprofessional course work
and qualify for enrollment into third-year pro-
fessional 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 universities that
do not offer approved preprofessional programs
or courses required at the University of Florida
are considered for conditional admission into
the junior year. These students may require as
many as four semesters at the University of
Florida to complete preprofessional require-
ments, 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 will monitor the progress of all stu-
dents. Students who fall below the critical track-
ing criteria for their degree program will have a
hold placed on their records, must see an
adviser in the college/academic unit before they
can advance register and continue in the pro-
gram, or be referred to Academic Advising to
seek admission to another college.






COLLEGES


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:
Architecture: Through an admissions com-
mittee, 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 com-
munity colleges are eligible for consideration for
third-year admission. Applications for transfer

fessional requirements are urged to apply for
the summer term for the sequence of architec-
tural design, building arts and architectural his-
tory. The remaining preprofessional courses may
be completed during the next academic year.
Students accepted for the sequence shall be
admitted conditionally and their records shall
be reviewed for approval to enter the profes-
sional courses in the junior year during the next
spring term. Students are admitted selectively to
the professional program on the basis of portfo-
lio review, overall grade point average, inter-
view and letter of application. Notification of
the decision of the admissions committee shall
be made prior to the end of the spring semester
for the junior class that begins the following fall.
Contact the department for current information.
Landscape Architecture: Transfer and post-
baccalaureate students must contact the depart-
ment to determine admission timing and eligi-
bility. All students must complete required
general education and preprofessional course
work prior to admission to professional studies.
Criteria for admission include review of design
performance, transcript, letter and interview.

Rinker Sr. School of Building Construction sec-
tion 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 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. Deadlines for completion of all appli-
cation procedures and receipt of official creden-
tials are March 1 for fall and September 1 for

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 plans shown require 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.
Summer Attendance
Students with fewer than 60 semester hours
at the time of their first enrollment in a state
university system institution must earn at least
nine (9) credit hours prior to graduation by


attending one or more summer terms at a state
university. A waiver of this requirement may be
granted by the college for health, academic,
financial or personal reasons. Written documen-
tation is required as support for a petition to
waive this rule.
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 do not apply
to the College of Architecture average. Specific
grade requirements for the various curricula
may be obtained from those offices.
Students planning to enter the Graduate
School must maintain a 3.0 average in 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:
grade point average, distribution and quality of
subject matter studied, evaluation of the stu-
dents by the faculty, and other pertinent quali-
ties of his or her work. The student will be con-
sidered 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.
Department of Architecture: Honors designa-
tions for graduation in architecture are calculated
on all courses in the professional curriculum
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 evalua-
tion 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 honors
3.80. In addition, for high and highest honors,
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 high-
est honors 3.75. In addition, for high and highest






ARCHITECTURE


honors, the faculty evaluation of the final
fourth-year design project is required.

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

Practical Experience
Students are urged to obtain before gradua-
tion some experience in the employment of
practicing professionals in their particular field
or in some allied work that will give an insight
into the problems of professional practice. Such
employment provides an introduction to the
methods of actual practice and enables the stu-
dent to derive increased benefit from advanced
work in school. Students should contact their
faculty adviser for recommended or required
practical experience.

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 con-
struction projects of unusual interest. Students
frequently combine such studies with atten-
dance at state and national meetings of the pro-
fessional organizations in their respective fields.
Students should consult their departments for
field trip requirements. Students seeking appli-
cation to the College of Architecture should
anticipate as part of their budget planning
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 Requirement
Personal computer design, graphic and oper-
ational competence is an essential component of
the contemporary professional environment.
Appropriate computer skills now are required
for all entry-level opportunities in each profes-
sional discipline within the college.
Course content increasingly relies on stu-
dents having computer skills and personal
access to computers with the proper software
for their disciplines.


All students entering the third year profes-
sional programs and entering graduate pro-
grams within the college must purchase, lease
or otherwise obtain continuing access to a per-
sonal computer. Each academic unit within the
college will maintain information concerning
computer hardware and software requirements,
as appropriate to its discipline and curriculum.
Refer to the university's web page at http://
www.ufl.edu or to the CIRCA home page at
http://www.circa.ufl.edu/computers for general
computer information as well as a link to the
college's home page for specific information for
each program.

Architecture
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
selective 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 government agencies. Internship in the pro-
fession is a required and integrated part of the
licensure process.
In addition to the courses offered on 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 pro-
gram. Summer institutes are conducted on
Nantucket Island for the study of architectural
preservation and in the Caribbean Basin for the
study of Caribbean culture and its conservation.
Information on these institutes may be obtained
from the department office.
NAAB Statement
Most states require that an individual
intending to become an architect hold an accred-
ited degree. There are two types of degrees that
are accredited by the National Architectural
Accrediting Board: The Bachelor of Architecture,
which requires a minimum of five years of
study, and the Master of Architecture, which
requires a minimum of three years of study fol-
lowing an unrelated bachelor's degree or two
years following a related preprofessional bache-
lor's degree. These professional degrees are
structured to educate those who aspire to regis-
tration 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 an
overall grade point average of 3.1, an architec-
tural grade point average of 3.4 and an exhibit
score of 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 guaranteed admission. It is the depart-
ment's policy to admit the best-qualified appli-
cants as evidenced by their academic achieve-
ment and their potential to complete
successfully the undergraduate program.

Interior Design
Jerry L. Nielson, Chair
The four-year program in interior design is
accredited by the Foundation for Interior Design
Education Research (FIDER). The curriculum
leads to the Bachelor of Design and is an essen-
tial first step toward professional registration in
the state of Florida, other states and the
Canadian provinces regulating the use of the
title or the practice of interior design.
The design process is studied and applied
creatively to resolve problems of interior envi-
ronments. The interior design faculty seek to
equip the student with a knowledge of design
techniques, materials, resources and an aware-
ness of the interrelated professional responsibil-
ity of the environmental design professions.
Field trips are required in the junior and
senior years. Students should plan to have ade-
quate funds for field trips and design studio
project materials. Internships are recommended
in the summer session between the junior and
senior years of study.
Interior design career opportunities are
numerous because of demand for professional
design services by businesses, corporations,
community organizations and government
agencies. Graduates of this program usually
assume positions in interior design offices and
architectural firms.
The Department of Interior Design requires
51 credit hours, including electives, to be taken
at the 3000-level or above.

Limited Access Program
All entering students must consult the
department adviser. This program has addi-
tional admission requirements as follows:
All students (postbaccalaureate, junior col-
lege transfers and UF students) must apply for
admission to the professional program, which is
selective due to space limitations.

Landscape Architecture
R. Terry Schnadelbach, Chair
The program is accredited by the Landscape
Architectural Accreditation Board and leads to
the Bachelor of Landscape Architecture, an
essential first step toward licensing in Florida
and other states that regulate the practice of
landscape architects. Students become familiar
with the art of design, planning or management,
and the arrangement of natural and man-made
elements on the land through application of cul-
tural and scientific knowledge. Both resource
conservation and the requirements of the built
environment are studied. Graduates are em-
ployed by professional offices; municipal, state
or federal recreation; landscape architectural or
planning agencies; and the construction, devel-
opment or horticultural industries. Graduates
also may continue in graduate programs at
institutions throughout the country and at the
University of Florida.
The Department of Landscape Architecture
requires 62 credit hours including electives to be
taken at the 3000 level or above.
Field trips are required as part of normal
course work; two major trips to cities in Florida
and other states are required. In the professional
program, domestic or foreign study opportuni-
ties are available. Students should plan to have
adequate funds for trips and studio materials.
Students will be required to own personal com-
puters with CADD graphics capabilities.
Students should check with the department for
equipment specifications prior to purchase. A
summer internship under a registered landscape
architect is required.
