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 or 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 the Course Prefixes, Titles and Departments index for a listing of the de-
partment that offers the course. For example, a course with the prefix ADV is taught two by departments, 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 section.

Frequently Asked Questions About Universal Tracking

What is universal tracking?
Universal tracking (UT) is an online electronic system that monitors the progress of all undergraduate majors toward graduation.
What is the purpose of universal tracking?
Universal tracking helps students find the best academic path to complete their degree, provides academic advice for choosing the most appropriate major as
soon as possible and provides feedback each fall and spring semester on 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 freshman
year. This immediate feedback helps the student determine if he/she has chosen the best major and is on track for graduation.
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.
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 helshe do?
If the student has selected a new major, he/she should contact the college offering that major to schedule an appointment with an adviser to discuss changing
the major. The student should visit the Academic Advising Center for assistance in choosing a new major. If the chosen major is not offered by the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences, the student will be referred to the college offering the major to 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?

University of Florida Purpose, Mission and Goals


Institutional Purpose
The University of Florida is a public, land-
grant research university, one of the most
comprehensive in the United States and it encom-
passes virtually all academic and professional
disciplines. It is the oldest and largest of Florida's
ten universities and is a member of the Associa-
tion of American Universities (AAU). Its faculty
and staff are dedicated to the common pursuit of
the university's threefold mission: education,
research and service.
Teaching-undergraduate and graduate
through the doctorate-is the fundamental pur-
pose of the university. Research and scholarship
are integral to the education process and to ex-
panding humankind's understanding of the natu-
ral world, the mind and the senses. Service is the
university's obligation to share the benefits of its
knowledge for the public good.
These three interlocking elements span all of
the university's academic disciplines and multi-
disciplinary centers and represent the university's
obligation to lead and serve the needs of the na-
tion, all of Florida's citizens, and the public and
private educational systems of Florida by pursu-
ing 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 further
national and international recognition for its ini-
tiatives and achievement in promoting human
values and improving the quality of life.


Mission and Goals

The university belongs to an ancient tradition
of great universities. We participate in an elabo-
rate 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 biological 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 boundaries, and our fac-
ulty 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 aspira-
tions and the limitations of environment comes
the definition of the university's goals.
Teaching. American colleges and universities
share the fundamental educational mission of
teaching students. The undergraduate experience,
based in the arts and sciences, remains at the core
of higher education in America. The formation of


educated people, the transformation of mind
through learning and the launching of a lifetime
of intellectual growth: these goals remain central
to every university. This undergraduate founda-
tion of American higher education has grown
more complex as the knowledge we teach has
grown more complex. Where once we had a sin-
gle 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 under-
graduate education still rests on the fundamental
knowledge of the liberal arts and sciences.
In our academic world we recognize two
rather imprecisely defined categories of higher
education: colleges and universities. The tradi-
tional American college specializes in a carefully
crafted four-year undergraduate program, gener-
ally focused on the arts and sciences. Universities
extend the range of this undergraduate education
to include advanced or graduate study leading to
the Ph.D. Most American universities also include
a variety of undergraduate and graduate profes-
sional 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 description takes
on the style of ritual incantation: rhythmic, rever-
ent and infrequently examined. What, then, does
each of these key words mean?
Major. Here is one of our most important as-
pirations. 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 meaningless
exercise, but most of us can name 62 great univer-
sities. By whatever indicator of quality we choose,
our university should fall into this group. If we
define a group of universities that shares our
adjectives (major, public, comprehensive, land-
grant, research), then we fall into a group of per-
haps the best 15 in this country.
Public. We exist thanks to the commitment
and investment of the people of the state of Flor-
ida. Generations of tax dollars constructed the
facilities we enjoy and have paid the major por-
tion of our operating budget. The graduates of this
institution, educated with tax dollars, provide the
majority of our private funding. Our state legisla-
tors created the conditions that permit 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 obliga-
tions we assume as a public university 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 link-
ages with other state universities, community
colleges and K-12 public and private institutions;
and we operate in cooperative symbiosis 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 univer-
sity, we must maintain close, continuous and
effective communication with our many publics.
Comprehensive. This adjective recognizes the
universal reach of our pursuit of knowledge. As a
matter of principle, we exclude no field from our
purview. We believe that our approach to knowl-
edge and learning, to understanding and wisdom,
requires us to be ready to examine any field, cul-
tivate any discipline and explore any topic. Re-
source limits, human or financial, may constrain
us from cultivating one or another academic sub-
specialty, 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 envi-
ronment. 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 transmis-
sion of practical knowledge. As one of the land-
grant universities identified by the Morrill Act of
1862, Florida has a special focus on agriculture
and engineering and a mandate to deliver the
practical benefits of university knowledge to
every county in the state. In our university, the
Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences and
the College of Engineering respond to this defini-
tion most obviously; but over time, the entire
university has come to recognize its commitment
to translating the benefits of abstract and theoreti-
cal knowledge into the marketplace to sustain the
economic growth that supports us all.
This commitment permeates the institutional
culture and defines us as one of 72 such institu-
tions in America. The land-grant university is, of
course, a peculiarly American invention and
captures one of the powerful cultural beliefs of
our country: that knowledge passes the test of
utility by remaining vitally connected to industry
and commerce.


I






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 experimental discoveries
of the geneticist, the insights of the semiotician,
the re-creations of the historian or the analysis of
the anthropologist. We define research to capture
the business professor's analysis of economic
organization, the architect's design and the musi-
cian's interpretation or the artist's special vision.
Research by agronomists improves crops, and
research by engineers enhances materials. Medi-
cal and clinical research cures and prevents dis-
eases. The list of research fields continues as end-
lessly as the intellectual concerns of our faculty
and the academic vision of our colleges.
We must publish university research, what-
ever the field. The musician who never performs,
the scientist whose work never appears for re-
view by colleagues, the historian whose note
cards never become a book may have accom-
plished much, but their accomplishments remain
incomplete. When we say research, we mean
research and creative activity that contribute to
the international public conversation about the
advancement of knowledge.


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 seminary was
moved to Gainesville. It was consolidated with
the state's land-grant Florida Agricultural Col-
lege, then in Lake City, to become the University
of Florida in 1906. Until 1947, UF enrolled men
only and was one of only three state universities.
The others were Florida State College for Women
(now FSU) and Florida A&M. In 1947, the student
body numbered 8,177 men and 601 women.
Today UF is 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 Re-
gents, 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 president with the advice
and assistance of university administration, the
University Senate and various committees elected
by the Senate and appointed by the president.


Students
University of Florida students-numbering
more than 42,000 in Fall 1998-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-four percent of UF students are under-
graduates (31,477), 19% are graduate students
(8,060) and 7% (2,799) are in the professional
programs of dentistry, law, medicine, pharmacy
and veterinary medicine.
Approximately 2,700 African-American stu-
dents, 3,900 Hispanic students and 2,550 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 na-
tion in the number of enrolled National Merit
Scholars, Achievement Scholars, International
Baccalaureate graduates and Advance Placement
score recipients.

Faculty
The university has approximately 4,050 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 accom-
plishments and continuing productivity since
promotion to the rank of professor, including
excellence and high merit in scholarship or crea-
tive achievement, teaching, service and extension.
The faculty attracted $256 million in research and
training grants in 1997-98.
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 Ful-
bright 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 winners
in editorial writing and poetry, inventors of Ga-
torade 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 na-
tion's 88 leading research universities as catego-
rized 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 organization.
The university is accredited by the Southern As-
sociation of Colleges and Schools Commission
on Colleges to award the degrees of bachelor,
master, specialist and engineer, as well as doc-
toral and professional degrees. UF is one of the
nation's top three universities offering more aca-
demic programs on a single campus than any of
the nation's other universities. It has '21 colleges
and schools and more than 100 interdisciplinary
research and education centers, bureaus, and
institutes. Almost 100 undergraduate degree
programs are offered. The Graduate School coor-
dinates more than 200 graduate programs
throughout the university's colleges and schools.
Professional postbaccalaureate degrees are of-
fered in dentistry, law, medicine, pharmacy and
veterinary medicine.
Last year, more than 32,000 people took ad-
vantage of the many university-sponsored oppor-
tunities made available through the Division of
Continuing Education. More than 25,000 people
participated in non-credit conferences, work-
shops, 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,

Facilities
On 2,000 acres, most of it within the limits of a
100,000-population urban area, the university
operates out of 917 buildings, 159 of them
equipped with classrooms and laboratories. Facili-
ties are valued at approximately $760 million.
Notable among these are the new Brain Institute,
the new physics building, University Art Gallery,
a microkelvin laboratory capable of producing
some of the coldest temperatures in the universe,
a 100-kilowatt training and research nuclear reac-
tor, the second largest academic computing center
in the South, and a self-contained intensive-care
hyperbaric chamber for treating near-drowning
victims.
The Florida Museum of Natural History is the
largest natural history/anthropology museum in
the Southeast, and one of the top 10 in the nation.
Its research collections contain nearly 6.5 million
specimens.
The Samuel P. Ham Museum of Art, with
18,000 square feet of exhibit space, is one of the
largest museums in the Southeast. The Center
for the Performing Arts attracts world-class
symphony orchestras, Broadway plays, opera,
and large-scale ballet productions to Gainesville.









The Stephen C. O'Connell Center and the
J. Wayne Reitz Union provide space for a myriad
of student and faculty activities. One thousand
persons can participate simultaneously in eight
different recreational activities in the O'Connell
Center, which is home to the Gator basketball,
volleyball, swimming and gymnastics teams.
More than 20,000 use the student union daily for
dining, meeting, bowling, pool and other 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 environment 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 freedom,
however, comes the responsibility to exercise
personal safety.
No community's security plan can attain
maximum effectiveness unless everyone in the
community contributes to making it work. Safety
and security are personal and shared responsibili-
ties. Only by accepting this responsibility can
members of the university community maintain a
safe and secure campus environment.
The University Police Department has close to
100 sworn officers, with the addition of a dozen
new officers since 1990. UF also has instituted a
voluntary apartment safety program, in coopera-
tion with local law enforcement, to advise stu-
dents 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 com-
munity 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 standards.
Moreover, the concern for values goes well be-
yond the observance of rules.


A university is a place where self-expression,
voicing disagreement and challenging outmoded
customs and beliefs are prized and honored.
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 en-
courage, it also must restrict behavior that ad-
versely 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 dishonest
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. Simi-
larly, measures will be taken against faculty, staff
and administrators who practice dishonest or
demeaning behavior.
Student Responsibility. Students should
report any condition that facilitates dishonesty
to the instructor, department chair, college
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 atten-
tion. In their own work, teachers should prac-
tice the same high standards they expect from
their students.
Administration Responsibility. As highly
visible members of our academic community,
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 complica-
tions as well.


GENERAL INFORMATION

* 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 dis-
ciplinary action against organizations and in-
dividuals violating either the law or the rea-
sonable use of alcohol. It also must provide
help for students who are alcohol-dependent.
The university will deal severely with stu-
dents convicted of the illegal possession, use,
or sale of drugs.
* What the University Community Can Do to
Prevent Alcohol Abuse and Drug Use. Stu-
dents can help control substance abuse by de-
clining 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 al-
cohol or used drugs from harming themselves
or others, especially in driving a motor vehi-
cle. They should encourage those needing
professional help to seek it. The same stan-
dards and regulations apply equally to fac-
ulty, staff and administration.
Relations Between People and Groups
One of the major benefits of higher education
and membership in the university community is
greater knowledge of and respect for other
groups, religious, racial and cultural. Indeed,,
genuine appreciation for individual differences
and cultural diversity is essential to the environ-
ment of learning.
Another major aspect of university life in-
volves 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 institution by
faculty, administration, staff and students.
Through experience in helping individuals and
the community, students can put into practice the
values they learn in the classroom.
Education at the University of Florida is not
an ethically neutral experience. The entire univer-
sity community should dedicate itself to realizing
the vision that a center of learning is a beacon
that, by directing itself to the highest values,
guides and encourages society to do the same.

students, faculty and staff must have a university
ID card.
The Gator 1 card is used for access to CIRCA
computer labs, university libraries, student rec-
reation and fitness centers, all university recrea-
tion facilities and intramural sports activities and
infirmary. The card also is required for purchas-
ing tickets to any university athletic or extracur-

ticipate in block seating for football games. Stu-
dents with Gator Dining accounts can use the
card to purchase food at any campus location; the
card also can be used with a prepaid vending
account for select vending machines and laundry
facilities in some residence halls. Gator 1 card also
can be used to cash checks on campus. The card
now functions as an honor/debit card when acti-
vated at Barnett Bank.

Division of Housing

Student Housing: The university offers a unique
and exciting residence hall program. The Division
of Housing provides accommodations and pro-
grams to meet students' needs.
The university has a large resident population
of both in-state and out-of-state students, as well
as students from 100 different foreign countries.
Since students come from differing environ-
mental backgrounds and social experiences, they
bring with them varying needs and expectations.
Because of this diversity in the student body, the
Division of Housing has developed a program
based on alternatives and choices. Students select
accommodations and environments that best fit
their needs.
General Guidelines: All freshmen who are ad-
mitted to the university receive a housing appli-
cation scan form with their letter of admission
from the Office of Admissions until housing fa-
cilities are full.
The university does not require freshmen at-
tending the university for the first time during
the fall semester to live on campus. Freshmen
entering the university during the summer
terms) must live on campus during the summer
to be eligible for fall semester on-campus housing.
Students who want on-campus housing must do
so for the entire academic year. Campus residents
must be full-time students
All students other than beginning freshmen
must make their own arrangements for housing









by applying to Assignments Office, University
Housing Office, Box 112100, University of Florida,
Gainesville, FL 32611-2100, or making arrange-
ments for private housing. (Refer to 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 term for which
admission is sought. Prospective students are
urged to apply as early as possible because of the
demand for on-campus housing. Application
requests are considered on a first-come, first-
served, space-available basis.
Roommate requests will be considered if the
individuals wishing to room together submit
housing agreements that indicate their desire to
room together and elect the same visitation choice
and assignment options.
Students with disabilities also are offered
housing on a first-come, first-served, space-
available basis. Accessible housing is available for
students with disabilities once they are offered
housing. Special needs should be indicated on the
housing agreement and application.
Room Styles: A wide range of room styles is
available: single rooms, double rooms, triple
rooms, suites for 2/3/4/5/6 residents and apart-
ments. The most prevalent room style is the dou-
ble room that 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 depending
on features such 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 direc-
tors, resident assistants, desk assistants and secu-
rity assistants.
Staff are committed to going beyond merely
providing a place for students to eat, sleep and
study. Staff and student leaders plan social, rec-
reational, cultural and educational opportunities.
Staff also are trained in crisis intervention and in
personal and fire safety and security procedures.
Students' main contact with staff is with resi-
dent assistants (RAs), co-op officers, hall directors
(HDs) and assistant residence directors (ARDs),
residence directors (RDs) and assistant directors
of housing for residence life (ADHs). An under-
graduate RA or co-op officer lives on each floor or
section to serve as a peer adviser. Graduate staff,
who supervise RAs, help to promote a learning
environment and coordinate area activities. The
ADH, a full-time university administrator, is
responsible for the overall administrative and
educational functions within each residence area.
Inter-Residence Hall Association: All students
are encouraged to participate in organizational
activities that play a significant part in their edu-
cational, cultural, social and recreational life. The
Inter-Residence Hall Association (IRHA) repre-
sents the collective interests of all resident stu-


dents and serves as a channel of communication
between residence area government councils, the
university community and outside interests. This
self-government program at the hall and area
levels offers residents the opportunity to establish
guidelines for group living and to assist in the
planning of social and educational activities.

GENERAL SERVICES
Local Telephone Service: A telephone jack that
provides 24-hour service is located in each room.
Students provide their own touch-tone tele-
phones. Cost of local service is included in the

the co-ops) have custodians to clean public
areas, bathrooms, lounges and hallways. Individ-
ual room cleaning is the responsibility of each
resident.
Security: Security is a shared responsibility of the
university, residence hall staff and residents.
Residents must take precautions to protect them-
selves and their personal property. Residence hall
staff and the University Police Department pro-
vide campus safety education and awareness
programs. Residence hall security is monitored by
the residence hall staff; external building security
generally is the responsibility of the University

Student Financial Affairs
The Office for Student Financial Affairs (SFA)
in 107 Criser Hall, coordinates and administers
student financial aid programs and provides
financial assistance and counseling.
SFA awards aid to students according to fi-
nancial need-the difference between current
educational costs and what individual students
can pay toward these costs. The university evalu-
ates 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 Application for Federal Student
Aid (FAFSA).
What is Financial Aid? Financial aid is money
provided to students and their families as either
gift aid or self-help to help pay college costs. Gift
aid is free money such as scholarships 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 consist
of scholarships, grants, loans, and/or work, sin-
gly or as a package.
When to Apply: Applications are available Janu-
ary 1 each year. Students are considered for aid
according to the date their aid file is complete. 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 (Refer to Important Dead-
lines below).
Although SFA cannot award financial aid to
students until they have been admitted to the
university, 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 ad-
mission. Students must obtain a Free Application
for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and a UF Gator
Aid Application Guide from any Florida commu-
nity college or high school guidance office. Stu-
dents 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 financial data
must reach us from the processor no later than
March 16. Allow a minimum of three weeks for
processing. Financial aid transcripts from all
previously attended institutions covering all
periods of attendance are required for transfer
students. Students should provide accurate finan-
cial figures taken directly from completed 1998
income tax forms. To comply with federal finan-
cial aid requirements, the Office for Student Fi-
nancial Affairs must verify all information. Incor-
rect information or incorrectly completed applica-
tion forms can cause aid to be delayed or denied.
Students should keep copies of all their financial
aid documents.
Confidentiality of Student Records: The univer-
sity ensures the confidentiality of student records
in accordance with State University System stat-
utes and the Family Education Rights and Privacy
Act of 1974, known as the Buckley Amendment.
Students' family financial information and the
type and amount of their aid are held in confi-
dence. Information is released only with the stu-
dent's written consent.
Important Deadlines: Financial aid applications
should be completed and sent to the appropriate
processor as soon as possible after January 1.
March 16 is the deadline for Student Financial
Affairs to receive your information from the need
analysis agency. Students who wish to be consid-
ered 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.
The Florida Student Assistance Grant dead-
line is May 15. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program
deadlines are set by semester. The fall deadline
for applying for Federal Direct Stafford/Ford,
Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford/Ford, and
Federal Direct PLUS loans is October 15. Individ-
ual colleges within the university and private
organizations have their own deadlines for ap-
plying for aid.
Graduate Aid: Graduate students 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 and apply as early as possible.
Off-campus jobs and the state-funded OPS job
program are not based on need and are available
through the Student Employment Office. For
other graduate aid such as fellowships and assis-
tantships, students should apply through the
Graduate School and the dean's offices of their
colleges.

Types of Aid: Scholarships are awarded based on
academic performance and financial need. SFA
awards a limited number of scholarships to aca-
demically outstanding undergraduates with doc-
umented need. Most academic scholarships are
awarded through the Office of Admissions. Indi-
vidual colleges also offer scholarships. For infor-
mation, students should contact their college.
Many private donors offer scholarships; students
should contact civic clubs, service organizations,
private corporations and other resources in their
home communities.
Grants are awarded to undergraduates with
financial need and range from $100 to $6,000. The
two largest grant programs are the Federal Pell
Grant and the Florida Student Assistance Grant.
The following undergraduate loan programs
are available at this university: Federal Direct
Stafford/Ford Loans, Federal Direct Unsubsi-
dized Stafford/Ford Loans, UF Institutional
Loans and Federal Perkins Loans. Parents of de-
pendent undergraduates can also take out educa-
tional loans through the Federal Direct PLUS
Loan program. These programs offer long-term,
low-interest loans that must be repaid when the
borrower graduates, withdraws or drops to less
than half-time enrollment.
Loans range upward from $500 per academic
year at low annual interest rates. The amount of
each loan except for Federal Direct Unsubsidized
Stafford Loans and Federal Direct PLUS loans is
based on financial need as determined from in-
formation the borrower provides on the FAFSA.
The university also has a Short-Term Loan
program to help students meet emergency finan-
cial needs related to educational expenses. Stu-
dents may borrow up to $400 or the amount of in-
state tuition if they have an acceptable repayment
source. Interest is one 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.
Part-time employment through the university
is offered to about 7,500 students each year. Stu-
dents normally work 15-20 hours a week, four or
five days a week and earn at least minimum
wage. Most departments arrange work hours
around the students' academic schedules.
Student Employment Office: The SFA Student
Employment Office is a clearinghouse for part-
time employment and coordinates three employ-
ment programs: Federal Work Study, (OPS) and
off-campus jobs. 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 at the Criser Hall
courtyard, McCarty Hall first floor, Norman Hall
first floor, outside 305 Reitz Union, and outside
H101 Shands Hospital.
Customer Service: SFA is open from 8:00 a.m. -
5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. For financial
aid information, applications and advising, stu-
dents can go to 107 Criser Hall or call 392-1275. A
telephone counselor also is available daily.


Information Services: SFA offers several infor-
mation services to students.
SFA TIPS is an interactive telephone system that
allows students to access up-to-date financial aid
information using their university PIN and social
security numbers. Students can receive informa-
tion about the status of their financial aid file, any
required documents not yet received, their award
status, their deferment status and whether their
aid has been disbursed. To access the system, dial
846-1183. SFA TIPS is closed between the hours of
2:15 a.m. 6:30 a.m. daily.
ISIS: Students can access information about their
personal financial aid files via the Internet. ISIS is
an interactive system on UF's web site that allows
students access to their university record.

complete application and program information,
as well as the on-line student job lists, links to
three free scholarship search services, on-line
application guide request form, an e-mail hotline,
late-breaking news and frequently asked ques-

quired to be in good standing and to maintain
satisfactory academic progress. Students must
comply with conditions listed below.
Undergraduates: Students must have a 2.0 cu-
mulative grade point average by the achievement
of 60 academic credit hours and must maintain a
2.0 cumulative grade point average for the dura-
tion of their undergraduate enrollment. Students


failing to meet this requirement are ineligible to
receive financial aid.
Until the completion of 60 academic credit
hours, students' progress for financial aid pur-
poses will be evaluated to determine eligibility for
continued enrollment.
Students who have from .5 to 14.5 deficit
grade points will be placed on financial aid
probation;
Students who have 15 or more deficit grade
points will be suspended from financial aid
for one term;
Students who do not reduce their grade point
deficit to fewer than 15 deficit grade points the
following term of enrollment will be termi-
nated from financial aid; and
Students who reduce their grade point deficit
to fewer than 15 deficit grade points will re-
turn to financial aid probation 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 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 hours for a

quiring more than 130 credit hours may re-

transferring to the university may receive aid is
prorated based on their entering enrollment
status. For example, a student enrolling as a jun-
ior 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 Aca-
demic Progress Appeals Committee to receive

requirements as undergraduates. The types of
financial aid available to postbaccalaureate stu-
dents 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

will be evaluated annually in September to de-
termine advancement to the next class level. If
they do not advance to the next class level but are

degree requirements. Information about financial
aid, scholarships and general counseling are
available.
Academic support is provided by UF colleges,
departments and faculty. In most cases, overseas
study can be incorporated into virtually any aca-
demic degree without creating excess hours or
graduation delays. Any excess-hours charges
produced by approved overseas study will be
paid by the university.
International Faculty and Scholar Services
(IFSS): IFSS delivers administrative and support
services to international faculty, scholars and
their families. Services are provided to faculty
and scholars immediately upon their arrival on
campus and continue until they return home.

Special Support Services
The Office for Academic Support and Institu-
tional Services (OASIS) in 200 Walker Hall, coor-
dinates and directs support and enrichment
services for all regularly and specially admitted
minority students (African American, Asian
American, Hispanic American and Native Ameri-
can). This includes participants in the Upward
Bound Program, the Student Enrichment Services
Program and other regularly admitted students in
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. This
office works closely 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 continues
to assist their retention by providing academic
counseling, tutoring, referrals and advocacy.
OASIS works closely with the Academic Advising
Center to provide training for and information
about its special programs.
OASIS strives to enhance academic progress.
Tutors are provided in math, English, biological
sciences, statistics, economics, chemistry and
physics. Referrals are made and tutoring arranged

internship work experience opportunities and
employment assistance to all students and

plore career plans, acquire career-related work
experiences, develop personal strategies that







STUDENT AFFAIRS


ensure employment upon graduation, interview
well and secure employment.
The center's services focus upon the student,
from freshmen exploring careers to seniors seek-
ing employment. Students can use 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.
SIGI+, a computerized career exploration and
occupational information system, helps match
career interests with occupations and provides
each student a personal printout for review.
Other computer-assisted career guidance pro-
grams are available.
A Career Workshop Program offers 16-18 dif-
ferent seminar sessions. Sessions are 50 minutes
long and are taught in the CRC's career develop-
ment laboratory. Topics include career planning,
cooperative education, job search correspondence,
resume preparation, interview techniques and
overseas jobs.
The Cooperative Education and Internship
programs enable students to gain professional
work experience related to classroom education.
They also provide a source of income and enable
students to become more competitive for the job
market.
Hundreds of recruiters visit the CRC each se-
mester 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., 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 com-
puter labs or terminals in the CRC. Once into the
system, students complete the demographic in-
formation and resume section, and send the data
to the CRC for inclusion in its database. The in-
formation 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 this information to provide refer-
rals directly to employers who have requested
candidates prior to on-campus interviews.
Career Days: The center sponsors a number of
these events each semester. Career Showcase
offers all students an opportunity to discuss ca-
reer and employment opportunities with hun-
dreds of national corporations.
Career Resource Library: Contains information
to help students make career choices: facts on
several thousand employers and related occupa-
tions, employer contact lists, directories for busi-
ness, industry, education and government, lists of
American firms operating overseas and reference
material and information on graduate and special


studies programs such as fellowships, assistant-
ships and other resource materials.
Research data is available on job trends, out-
look and economic forecasts, labor market statis-
tics, manpower bulletins for various career fields,
special directories and publications rating most
employers. More than 250 slide/tape, video and
audio programs provide career choices, employer
information, 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 potential
employers. In addition, the center refers qualified
persons on file to interested employers requesting
candidates to fill job vacancies.
The World Wide Web: The Career Resource
Center and its list of jobs and career information
can be accessed at http://www. crc.ufl.edu/. It
contains a full spectrum of information services
and direct Web links, including details about the
Career Resource Center, how to find it and hours
of operation, descriptions of CRC programs,
events and services, career fairs and Career
Showcase (including a current list of employers
attending), job listings and interviewing/on-
campus recruiting (including signing up for in-
terviews), and information for alumni. The text of
the Gator Career Guide is also available. For those
in the immediate job market, there are direct links
to such job posting services as JOBTRAK, Ad-
ams Job Bank, Career Web, Job Bank USA, Monster
Jobs on the Web and Yahoo! Career Mart, to name a
few.

HIV Infection: The university's policy is to assess
the needs of students, faculty or employees with
HIV infection on a case-by-case basis. With per-
mission of the affected individual, 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 re-
spected. Breach of confidentiality of information
obtained by a university employee in an official
university capacity may result in disciplinary
action.
Based on current medical information 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 cam-
pus 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 current ad-
vances in HIV/AIDS treatment, early interven-


tion is crucial to maintaining well-being and de-
laying complications of the illness.
In keeping with the Americans with Disabili-
ties Act, the university considers HIV/AIDS to be
a disability. Existing support services can be util-
ized by students or employees who are disabled
by HIV infection or AIDS.

Student Life

Activities and Organizations
Student Government: Student Government at
the University of Florida is a cooperative organi-
zation that advances student interests and is
based on mutual confidence among the student
body, the faculty and the administration. Consid-
erable authority has been granted the student
body for the regulation and conduct of student
affairs. Student Government accepts responsibil-
ity commensurate with the resources at its dis-
posal to fulfill its mission, including the allocation
of more than seven million dollars annually in
student activity and service fees, substantial
authority in the regulation of co-curricular activi-
ties and administration of the Student Honor and
Traffic Courts. The university feels that training
in and responsibility for the conduct of student
affairs is a valuable part of educational growth
and development.
Student Government is the governing organi-
zation and representative of the student body.
Each student of the university is a member of the
student body. Student Government functions
under a constitution and by-laws that have been
accepted by the university as expressing the will
of the students, although ultimate authority for
university affairs rests with university adminis-
tration. 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 student
body. In addition to elected offices, many ap-
pointed positions have been established, includ-
ing Cabinet and sub-Cabinet, Student Honor
Court and Traffic Court posts.
Student Government, recognizing its limita-
tions as a true "government," attempts to exercise
influence on governments at all levels through
conferences, lobbying, research and the advance-
ment of proposals for change.
Students may apply for various positions
within the student government structure by con-
tacting 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 churches, centers and
organizations associated with the university of-
fer a variety of programs and ministries. There
are also interdenominational and nondenomina-
tional activities fostered by the Department of
Religion and the Campus Ministries Cooperative.
Social Fraternities: Twenty-eight fraternities and
twenty sororities have established chapters at the
university. The Interfraternity, National Pan-
Hellenic and Panhellenic Councils are the gov-
erning bodies of all UF Greek organizations. The
Interfraternity Council supervises the activities of

26


the 25 NIC fraternities and is composed of an
executive board and the president of each frater-
nity. The officially recognized national fraternities
at the university are Alpha Epsilon Pi, Alpha
Gamma Rho, Alpha Tau Omega, Beta Theta Pi,
Chi Phi, Delta Chi, Delta Tau Delta, Kappa Alpha,
Kappa Sigma, Lambda Chi Alpha, Phi Delta
Theta, Phi Kappa Tau, Phi Sigma Kappa, Pi
Kappa Alpha, Pi Kappa Phi, Sigma Alpha Epsi-
lon, 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 um-
brella organization for the seven traditionally
African-American fraternities and sororities at the
university. The NPHC is composed of an execu-
tive 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 sororities are Alpha
Kappa Alpha, Iota Phi Theta, Sigma Gamma Rho
and Zeta Phi Beta.
Primary jurisdiction in sorority matters is
vested in the Panhellenic Council. The Panhel-
lenic Council is composed of an executive board
and the president and Panhellenic delegate of
each of the university's sixteen National Panhel-
lenic 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 sorori-
ties, there are approximately 220 honorary and
professional organizations and approximately 200
other special interest groups.

Academic Honesty
In the fall of 1995 the UF student body enacted
a new honor code and voluntarily committed
itself to the highest standards of honesty and
integrity. When students enroll at the university,
they commit themselves to the standard drafted
and enacted by the students.
Preamble: In adopting this honor code, the stu-
dents of the University of Florida recognize that
academic honesty and integrity are fundamental
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 violation of the honor
code is bound by honor to take corrective action.
The quality of a University of Florida education is
dependent upon community acceptance and
enforcement of the honor code.
The Honor Code: We, the members of the Uni-
versity 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, the following pledge is either
required or implied:


"On my honor, I have neither given nor
received unauthorized aid in doing this
assignment."
Information on procedures is located in the
Student Guide at http://oss.ufl.edu/stg/ and is
set forth in Florida Administrative Code.

Student Conduct Code
Students enjoy the rights and privileges that
accrue to membership in a university com-
munity and are subject to the responsibilities
that accompany that membership. In order to
have a system of effective campus governance,
it is incumbent upon all members of the campus
community to notify appropriate officials of any
violations of regulations and to assist in their
enforcement. The university's conduct regula-
tions are available to all students on the Internet
at http://oss.ufl.edu/stg/ and are set forth in
Florida Administrative Code. Questions can be
directed to the Dean of Students Office in 202
Peabody Hall, 392-1261.

Intercollegiate Athletics
For each of the last nine years the University
of Florida has ranked among the nation's five best
collegiate athletic programs and among the na-
tion's 10 best for 15 straight years, based on re-
search conducted by USA Today and the National
Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics.
Florida and UCLA are the only schools to finish
in the top 10 in national all-sports rankings every
year since 1983-84, while Florida, UCLA and
Stanford are the only schools in the nation to
finish in the top five in the nation over the past
nine years.
On the strength of 10 top 10 national finishes,
highlighted by a national title for the women's
tennis team, the university tied for second in the
1997-98 Sears Directors' Cup national all-sports
competition, the best finish in school history.
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 overall
sports performances in an academic year.
The all-sports champion is determined by
points awarded for an institution's finish in up to
20 sports. Fielding 18 athletic teams, Florida
shared second place with North Carolina with 660
points. Stanford captured the title with 1,010
points; UCLA was fourth and Michigan was fifth.
In addition to the women's tennis title, nine
other Gator teams finished in the top 10 of their
respective sports in 1997-98: Women's Golf (2nd);
Gymnastics (2nd); Volleyball (T3rd); Football
(4th); Women's Indoor Track and Field (6th);
Men's Indoor Track and Field (7th); Baseball
(T7th); Soccer (T9th); Women's Basketball (T9th).
The Gators also captured seven Southeastern
Conference Championships, raising its total to 47
since the 1990-91 academic year, more than dou-
ble any other conference school's total over that
time span. The Gators won SEC crowns in
baseball, women's cross country, soccer, softball,
women's tennis, women's outdoor track and field
and volleyball. The six SEC titles by the women's
program ties a SEC seasonal record set by the UF









women's program last year. UF's total of seven
overall SEC titles is only one short of the SEC
single-season record, which Florida set in 1991-92
with eight crowns.
For an unprecedented fourth time, Florida
completed a sweep of the Southeastern Confer-
ence All-Sports Trophies, winning both the
men's, women's and combined crowns in early
May. Florida became the first school in SEC his-
tory to win all three in 1992 and repeated the feat
in 1993, 1996 and now in 1998. No other school in
the league has won all three titles in the same
year. Florida has now won the All-Sports Trophy
seven consecutive years and nine of the last 11.
Individually, 55 Gator athletes earned All-
America honors in 1997-98, and three Gators won
individual national titles. UF's coaching staff also
garnered four SEC Coach-of-the-Year honors.
Florida was equally successful away from the
athletic arena in 1997-98, as a league record 100
student-athletes were named to the Southeastern
Conference's Academic Honor Roll. Florida has
now had 481 Academic Honor Roll recipients
over the last six years-the best six-year total in
UF and SEC history. Since the 1980-81 year, UF
student-athletes have accumulated 908 SEC Aca-
demic Honor Roll honors, the best in the SEC.
In an era when the NCAA estimates 70 per-
cent of Division I schools are losing money on
intercollegiate athletics, the Gator athletic pro-
gram continues to impact university academic
programs. Since 1990, the University Athletic
Association has contributed more than 14.3 mil-
lion dollars to the university to help fund aca-
demic endeavors.
Florida's athletic program also serves as a fo-
cal point for the surrounding community and
beyond, as more than six million fans have filed
through the gates to attend UF sporting events
over the last seven years. More than 850,000 fans
attended 169 home events in Gainesville in 1997-
98. Five of UF's athletic teams ranked among the
top 10 in national attendance in 1997-98.
In addition, the "Goodwill Gators"-a pro-
gram where UF student-athletes, coaches and
administrators take part in community-related
endeavors-has been 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 a18 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 and diving, tennis, track and field, while the
women participate in basketball, cross country,
golf, gymnastics, swimming and diving, soccer,
softball, tennis, track and field and volleyball.
Florida competes in the Southeastern Confer-
ence (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 form the West-
ern Division. Florida was a charter member of the
SEC in 1933.
In addition to fielding some of the best college
athletes, UF also lays claim to some of the world's


STUDENT LIFE
I 1


finest athletes, who are showcased every four
years at the Olympic Games. Since 1968
and spanning eight Olympic Games, 83 Gator
student-athletes have represented 16 countries
and claimed 51 medals-including 25 gold. Nine-
teen Gators and one UF coach participated in the
1996 Olympics in Atlanta and captured three
medals.
When talk turns to facilities, the University of
Florida's centrally-located athletic complex is
among the nation's best.
Ben Hill Griffin Stadium at Florida Field
serves as the hub for the athletic complex. With
its 83,000 seats, UF's football stadium is one of the
eight largest on-campus football stadiums in the
nation. UF ranks among the nation's top 15 in
average football attendance 16 consecutive years
and among the country's top five for seven years.
Since 1986, Florida has made $70 million in
capital improvements, including major expan-
sions of the football stadium, a multi-purpose
athletic field house and new tennis, track and
field, softball, baseball, golf, soccer and swimming
facilities.
Another sign of Florida's commitment to ex-
cellence within its athletic complex is the 12,000-
seat Stephen C. O'Connell Center, which houses
Gator basketball and also transforms into an in-
door track and field facility. Undergoing an $8.1
million facelift in 1998 to give the facility a per-
manent roof, the O'Dome also serves as home for
the swimming and diving and gymnastic teams.
Gators love their sports and 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 lakes and rivers.
Intramural Leagues: For structured competitive
play, intramural leagues and tournaments are
scheduled. Specific leagues available for flag
football, volleyball, soccer, basketball and softball
are Women's Independent, Co-Ed, Recreational,
Men's Independent, A and B, Graduate, Resi-
dence Hall and Sorority. Individuals may also
compete in activities such as swimming, bowling,
golf, track, tennis, racketball, squash and wally-
ball. T-shirts are awarded to winners in each
division.
Sports Clubs: The Sports Club program provides
structured, competitive athletic opportunities
among institutions in non-varsity sports. The
program offers instruction, recreation and compe-
tition in 35 different clubs.
Lake Wauburg: UF students, faculty and staff
have their own private lake-front parks located
eight miles south on U.S. 441. Lake Wauburg
North and South are outdoor recreation facilities
owned and operated year round by the univer-
sity. Each facility offers quiet places to relax or
picnic. Park entry fees are free with your Gator 1
card. The north park opens at noon and the south
park at 1:00 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. Satur-
day and Sunday the parks open at 10:00 a.m. Both
parks close at 6:00 p.m.


Wauburg North offers 25 acres of shaded
grassy picnic areas with tables and grills set on a
hill overlooking the lake and the swimming area.
Canoes, kayaks, paddle boats and rowboats are
available and can be checked out for free with
your Gator 1 card. Beach volleyball and fishing
from the dock are popular activities.
Wauburg's south shore offers 65 acres of natu-
ral Florida. Enjoy the unspoiled beauty of Lake
Wauburg along the dock and beach area. Eagles
and ospreys often fly over the lake. Guests can
walk the nature trails or play a game of frisbee
golf at the 18-hole championship course. Soccer
and softball playing fields are also available.
Sailing and waterskiing programs are also of-
fered at Lake Wauburg; ask a staff person how to
join. Large groups may reserve the Gator Lodge
or pavilions for picnics, parties or meetings.

Student Recreation &
Fitness Centers
The Student Recreation and Fitness Center
(SRFC) is located off Fletcher Drive, behind the
Florida gym, and has racquetball and squash
courts, two aerobics rooms, and a strength and
conditioning room with cardiovascular and Nau-
tilus equipment. A multipurpose area accommo-
dates volleyball, basketball and martial arts activi-
ties. The Lifestyle Appraisal Center, room 103 of
the SRFC, offers fitness assessments and wellness
information.
The Southwest Recreation Center (SWRC) is
located across from the Harn Museum on Hull
Road. It contains racquetball, basketball and vol-
leyball courts, an aerobics room, and a strength
and conditioning room with free weights, Med-X
and cardiovascular equipment.

Parking and Traffic Regulations

I


to the university also may be found in the appro-
priate sections that follow.
It should be understood, however, that mini-
mum requirements are given and that admission
to the university is selective. The satisfaction of
minimum requirements does not automatically
guarantee admission. Under Board of Regents
policy, a limited number of students may be ad-
mitted as exceptions.
Any student who is admitted conditionally
may enroll subject to verification that the condi-
tions of admission have been satisfied. If the final
credentials fail to confirm the conditions for ad-
mission, the admission will be revoked, the stu-
dent's classification will be in a nondegree status
and continued enrollment will be denied.
Furnishing false or fraudulent statements or
information in connection with an application for
admission or residence affidavit can result in
disciplinary action, denial of admission and in-
validation of credits or degrees earned.
Minimum Requirements for Admission
Minimum requirements evolved from studies of
student performance. These studies identify pri-
mary factors that indicate a reasonable chance for
completion of a degree at the university. The
University Admissions Committee is responsible
for administering all admissions, including appli-
cants approved as exceptions to the minimum
admission requirements.
Students who plan to enter the university for
the first time will be classified as follows.
Beginning Freshmen: Students who have
earned fewer than 12 semester hours follow-
ing graduation from high school. (See Admis-
sion as a Freshman)
Undergraduate Transfers: Students who have
earned at least 12 semester hours following
graduation from high school, and who have
not received a bachelor's degree. (See Admis-
sion as a Transfer Student)
Postbaccalaureate Students: Students who have

purposes are not granted to students who appear
to have entered the state solely for educational
purposes. For more details regarding residency
classifications for tuition purposes, refer to the
residency section at the back of this catalog.
Medical Immunizations
Prior to registration, each student accepted for

Computer Requirement
Access to and on-going use of a computer are
required for all students. The university expects
each student entering the university and con-
tinuing 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 registration
can be done by computer and university corre-
spondence is often sent via e-mail.
While the university offers limited access
to computers through its computer labs, most
students are expected to purchase or lease a
computer that is capable of dial-up or network
connection to the Internet, graphical access to
the World Wide Web, and productivity func-
tions such as word processing and spreadsheet
calculation.
For the freshman and sophomore years, these
functions can be provided by most currently
available standard microcomputers with an office
software suite and printer. Appropriate net-
working and Internet software is available from
the university at no additional cost. Sample
minimum configurations are provided below.

Applications for the fall class received January 31
and after are considered on a space-available
basis. Application deadlines for other terms are
listed in the university calendar.
Admission is selective. Because of community
colleges and other state universities in Florida, the
university must limit the number of entering
freshmen. Students may apply for admission after
attending community colleges or other universi-
ties by transferring to a UF college in accordance
with admission standards.
Admission for Florida Residents
These requirements for admission considera-
tion give priority to those applicants whose total
record indicates the greatest likelihood of aca-
demic success.

Florida. An overall C average, as computed by
the university, is also required at each colle-
giate institution attended. College deficiencies
earned through high school dual-enrollment
programs will be reviewed individually.
* A record of good conduct. Major or continu-
ing difficulty with school or other officials
may render an applicant ineligible regardless
of academic qualifications.
Please note: Applicants who present scores on
the G.E.D. also must present records from sec-
ondary schools attended and standardized test
scores. The applicant's overall academic back-
ground will be considered.

Meeting this index alone does not guarantee
admission to the university.
Any Florida student who meets the minimum
admission requirements and who is interested in
attending the university is urged to submit an
application. Applicants should be aware, how-
ever, that admission is highly competitive when
the number of qualified applicants exceeds the
number that the university is permitted to enroll.
An applicant's total high school record including
grades, test scores, educational objective and
pattern of courses completed, school recommen-
dation 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),
foreign language, science and social science.
Admission for Non-Florida Residents
Because UF must limit the 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) will be considered individually
by the admissions committee. Applications
should be submitted in accordance with univer-
sity deadlines.
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 princi-
pal or guidance counselor stating specific rea-
sons why the applicant would profit more
from early admission than by completion of
the senior year of high school.
Eligible early admission students from Florida
high schools may be funded through dual credit
enrollment. Dual enrollment refers to a student
taking on-campus courses simultaneously at both
the University of Florida and another institution.
If the parent institution is a Florida high school,
the student may qualify for tuition-exempt dual
enrollment credit and may receive textbooks/
materials on a lend-return basis. There must be an
articulation agreement between the university
and the home county school board, developmen-
tal research school or other secondary school.
Qualified high school students will be en-
rolled 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 univer-
sity. For more information, refer to Academic
Regulations (especially the sections on Dual En-
rollment and Nondegree Registration).
The university provides numerous opportuni-
ties other than early admission to accelerate
graduation. For additional information, please
refer to the Academic Advising section.
Advance Housing Payment
Entering freshmen are required to make a
housing deposit within 30 days of acceptance, if
they desire to live in university housing. The
housing deposit, less a $25 service charge, is
refundable until May 1 for applicants accepted for
admission to the fall freshman class.
Admission with Advanced Standing
The university participates in the Advanced
Placement (AP) program, the College Level Ex-
amination Program (CLEP) and the International
29







ADMISSIONS


Baccalaureate (IB) program. Students entering the
university offer 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 ex-
emption from such courses without credit. (Refer
to the Academic Advising section.)
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? Appli-
cants who have earned at least 12 semester hours
of credit following graduation from high school.
When to Apply: Applications may be submitted
up to one year in advance of the entering term.
Applicants should apply at least six months prior
to the term they plan to enter. They should refer
to the application deadlines in the university
calendar and consult the college to which they
intend to apply. (Note: In a number of programs,
the sequence of professional courses begins
ONLY in the fall term of the junior year.) An
applicant who delays filing an application may
not be able to furnish the necessary records in
time for admission to the term desired.
This section lists the general admission re-
quirements 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 en-
rollment 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
seeking to transfer directly from a Florida public
community college with the Associate of Arts degree.
All other community college applicants, undergradu-
ate transfer applicants from four-year colleges or
universities and applicants for readmission should
consult the appropriate sections that follow.
The University of Florida subscribes to the ar-
ticulation agreement between the state universi-
ties 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 univer-
sity 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.
Applicants must have completed two sequen-
tial courses of foreign language in secondary
school or 8-10 sequential semester hours at the
postsecondary level, or document an equivalent
level of proficiency.
A transcript must be furnished from each in-
stitution attended regardless of length of atten-
dance or credit earned. Additional transcripts are
required as soon as they are available for any
work completed after an application. Any student
who has failed to maintain a minimum C 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 UF.
An undergraduate transfer applicant entering
the university 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; when test scores are
required, the college will contact the applicant.
Within space and fiscal limitations, applicants
who have satisfied the above minimum require-
ments will be considered for admission at the
junior level. Transfer students may be required to
take additional pre-professional courses not com-
pleted at the junior college. However, such
courses will not reduce the number 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 transfer-
ring with fewer than 60 hours credit is extremely
limited, so limited that very few are accepted.
Students are encouraged to remain at their Flor-
ida community college until completion 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 be-
ginning freshman to be considered for admis-
sion as a transfer student. (See section, Ad-
mission as a Freshman.)
An applicant must be in good standing and
eligible to return to any institution previously
attended. A student who for any reason
would not be allowed to return to an institu-
tion previously attended cannot be considered
for admission to UF.
An applicant must have a C average or higher
(as computed by the university) on all work


attempted at each institution previously at-
tended. No application can be considered un-
til complete official transcripts of all under-
graduate work are received by the Office of
Admissions.
SAn applicant must present a satisfactory con-
duct record. Regardless of other qualifications,
an applicant who has experienced serious or
continuing difficulty with school or other
authorities because of improper conduct may
find his or her application denied.
Admission as a Junior or Senior: Transfer appli-
cants 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 ad-
mission to a program in teacher education must
submit scores on the SAT or the ACT. These
scores should be forwarded to the Office of Ad-
missions as soon as possible after submitting an
application. Some colleges with enrollment quo-
tas require applicants to submit test scores; when
test scores are required, the college will contact
the applicant. In addition, the following require-
ments also must be satisfied:
* An applicant must present a minimum of 60
semester hours (or 90 quarter hours) of ac-
ceptable 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 verify-
ing completion of the courses (or acceptable
substitutes) required for admission by the
college. (See appropriate college section of this
catalog.) If recommended by the college, an
applicant lacking some requirements may be
permitted to enroll in that college and to com-
plete 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 ap-
proved 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 transferable credit must
have satisfied the CLAST requirement prior to
admission.
All applicants must have completed two se-
quential courses of foreign language in secon-
dary school or 8-10 sequential semester hours
at the postsecondary level, or document an
equivalent level of proficiency.

ADMISSIONS


Admissions Examinations
Graduate Record Examination: In addition to
the GRE, some departments request scores on one
or more advanced subject tests of the GRE. All
scores will be considered.
Graduate Study in Business Administration:
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

Students who are not eligible for direct admis-
sion may be granted conditional admission to the
Graduate School until requisite examination
scores or final grades are available. Students also
may be granted conditional admission to pursue
graduate work if previous records or GRE scores
are borderline or when specific prerequisite
courses are required.
Students granted conditional admission will
be notified by the department of the conditions of
their admission. When these conditions have been
satisfied, the department will notify the student
in writing and will send a copy to the Graduate
School. Eligible course work taken while a stu-
dent is in conditional status 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 language
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
MBA program must submit satisfactory
GMAT scores before their application will be
considered.
International students are required to hold
health and accident insurance as a condition

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 ap-
propriate 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.

forms requesting additional information. Submis-
sion of committee evaluations or letters of recom-
mendation are not necessary until the formal
application forms are filed.
The college looks for students with high stan-
dards of scholastic achievement, moral character
and motivation. Applicants must possess high
aptitude and exceptional academic preparation
because of the science studies that must be mas-
tered. 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 representa-
tion of the ethnic mixture of the state is sought in
the student body. The college adheres to the prin-
ciples of ethnic, racial, religious and social equal-
ity among its student body and faculty.
Generally, applicants should plan to complete
the requirements for a bachelor's degree. How-
ever, qualified students may be accepted without
a bachelor's degree, provided they show evidence
of sufficient preparation. Applicants with an
overall B average will receive the strongest con-
sideration for admission.
All applicants must take the Dental Admis-
sion Test, preferably in the spring preceding
submission of their application or, at the latest,
during the fall testing period. The test is given
twice a year. Following a review of all application
materials and Dental Admission Test scores by
the Dental Admissions Committee, interviews
will be arranged for competitive applicants.
(Refer to the more detailed description in the
College of Dentistry bulletin.)

Veterans).
Students who may be eligible for educational
benefits under any Veterans Administration (VA)
program are urged to contact their local VA rep-
resentative as soon as they are accepted. Students
expecting to receive benefits under one of these
programs must file an application for benefits
with the Office of the University Registrar. No
certification can be made until the application is
on file. Benefits are determined by the Veterans
Administration; the university certifies according
to VA rules and regulations.


ADMISSIONS


Inquiries relating to social security benefits
should be directed to the student's local Social
Security Office. The Office of the University Reg-
istrar will submit enrollment certificates issued by
the Social Security Administration for students
eligible to receive educational benefits under the
Social Security Act, providing the undergraduate
student registers for 12 semester hours or more.
A full-time undergraduate load for VA or so-
cial security benefits is 12 hours per semester.

application fee. If you find it difficult to submit
the application fee because of currency restric-
tions in your country, we suggest that you re-
quest a friend or relative in the United States to
submit the fee on your behalf.
Academic Records
Consideration of an application cannot be
given until ALL required credentials are received
by the Office of Admissions. All documents must
be accompanied by certified English translations
and become the property of the university. Cre-
dentials of applicants who do not enroll will be
destroyed and cannot be returned or forwarded.
Send applications and credentials to the Of-
fice of Admissions, P. O. Box 2946, University of
Florida, Gainesville, Florida 32602-2946, U.S.A.

Notice of Admission
When an application for admission is ap-
proved, an official notice will be sent by the uni-
versity. 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 consid-
ered for entrance to a different term, the Office of
Admissions must be advised.
Under no circumstances should an applicant
make plans to depart for Gainesville until official
notification has been provided by the university.
A student who comes to campus without a notice
bf 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 superior
academic records can be approved for admission.

Readmissions
Readmission applies 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 re-
admission. Readmission, however, is not guaran-
teed and is subject to availability at the appropri-
ate level, college or major. Students who skip a
single term will be scheduled automatically for a
registration appointment for one additional term.
How to Apply for Readmission
Applications are available from the Office of
Admissions, Box 114000, University of Florida,
Gainesville, FL 32611-4000. Forms and directions
vary with the level of readmission. 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. Applica-
tions must be received in the Office of Admis-
sions 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 col-
lege or university since last enrolled at the Uni-
versity of Florida, they also must have a C or
higher average (as computed by UF) on all work
attempted at each institution. (Note: Grades re-
ceived at other institutions are not averaged with
grades received at UF for the purpose of meeting
university grade-point average requirements.)
Students must list all institutions attended
and provide complete official transcripts from
each. Failure to declare attendance at another
institution could invalidate admission and any
credits or degrees earned. Applicants also must
be in good standing and eligible to return to each
institution previously attended.
All readmission applicants must meet the cur-
rent admission requirements of the college or
school they expect to enter. Readmission is not
guaranteed and is subject to availability at the
level, college or major. (Consult the appropriate
college section in this catalog for admission
requirements.)


Satisfactory Conduct Record
Applicants must present a satisfactory record
of conduct. Regardless of other qualifications,
applicants who have experienced major or con-
tinuing difficulties with school or other authori-
ties 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 nonacademic activi-
ties) 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 ap-
plied 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 un-
der 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 pro-
cedures, former students who wish to petition 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 at the following levels
by the Office of the University Registrar each
semester:

1 T


College Level Academic Skills Test
CLAST is designed to test the communication
and computation skills judged by state university
and community college faculty as necessary for
successful performance and progression 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 universi-
ties 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 semester
hours must have satisfied the CLAST require-
ment by the end of the first term of enrollment.
Transfer applicants with more than 96 hours must
have satisfied the CLAST requirement before
admission to the university.
The Office of Instructional Resources in 1012
Turlington Hall coordinates information and
registration for CLAST. The Academic Advising
Center can provide a list of CLAST skills. Regis-
tration for UF course work and awarding of the
A.A. certificate after earning 60 hours are contin-
gent upon satisfaction of CLAST.

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 on a student that can be
released to the public, is limited to name, class,
college and major; dates of attendance; degrees)
earned; honors and awards received; local, per-
manent and e-mail addresses; telephone number;
most recent previous educational institution at-
tended; participation in officially recognized
activities and sports; and the weight and height of
members of athletic 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 request-
ing this restriction from the Office of the Univer-
sity 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 University Personnel Services.
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:
SAn employee, agent or officer of the univer-
sity or State University System of Florida in an


administrative, supervisory, academic or re-
search, 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 appropriate 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 entities
permitted such access under applicable federal
and state law.
Students have the right to review their own
educational records for information and to deter-
mine accuracy. A photo I.D. or other equivalent
documentation or personal recognition by the
custodian of record will be required before access
is granted. Parents of dependent student, as de-
fined by the Internal Revenue Service, have these
same rights upon presentation of proof of the
student's dependent status.
If a student believes the educational record
contains information that is inaccurate, mislead-
ing, or in violation of his or her rights, the student
may ask the institution to amend the record. The
UF Student Guide outlines the procedures for
challenging the content of a student record as
well as the policies governing access to and main-
tenance 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 can call TeleGator at
(352) 37GATOR or 374-2867 or access ISIS at
http://www.isis.ufl.edu for their grades.
Transcripts: Upon written request, the university
will provide academic transcripts for any student
who has attended this university. There soon may
be a charge for each transcript. The university
maintains the right to withhold release of a tran-
script if the student has an outstanding financial
obligation to the university. To reflect a complete
academic record for undergraduate, graduate 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 continue
enrollment at the school that awarded the A.A.
may be granted additional transfer credit for one
35







ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


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 baccalau-
reate degree-granting institution. At least 25% of
semester credit hours must be earned through
instruction at the University of Florida.
Accreditation by the Southern Association of
Colleges and Schools notes that "an adequate
number of hours with appropriate prerequisites
must be required in courses above the elementary
level." The University of Florida interprets this,
based on commonly accepted good practice, to
mean 60 credits in 3-4000 level courses.
Courses completed with grades of D or higher
at other regionally accredited degree-granting
institutions that reasonably parallel the curricu-
lum at this university will be accepted for transfer
credit as hours earned. It is the prerogative of the
student's college to determine how transfer credit
satisfies the specific degree's course requirements.
Students are required to submit final official tran-
scripts from all institutions attended prior to or
during their enrollment at UF. Failure to declare
attendance at another institution can invalidate
admission to UF and any credits or degrees
earned.
UF Students Attending Other Schools
Normally, UF students are not permitted to
register at another institution for a course or its
equivalent that is offered at UF.



Auditing Courses: Auditing may be approved on
a space-available basis. In addition to paying
course fees, the approvals of the instructor and
dean of the college offering the course are re-
quired. Immunizations also are required. Audited
courses are not reflected on the academic tran-
script. Florida residents 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 correspon-
dence courses while pursuing a degree at the
university unless special permission is obtained
in advance from their college. The student must
be in good academic standing and may not apply
more than six semester hours of correspondence
credit toward a UF 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 undergradu-
ate student benefits from the Veterans Adminis-
tration or Social Security Administration 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 catalog for en-
rollment 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 dif-
fering 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 without
successfully petitioning their college dean.
Simultaneous enrollment in correspondence
courses or extension work at another college or
university is counted when computing the maxi-
mum 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 permitted
to students while classified as freshmen or
sophomores. Students who can document ex-
tenuating 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 provided they can document sufficient
reason to drop, usually hardship or medical
condition occurring after the deadline.
Failure to attend a class does not constitute a
drop.

Withdrawals
The Dean of Students Office coordinates
withdrawal procedures. Withdrawal formally
drops all courses in a term. Students who with-
draw after drop/add and before the deadline for
withdrawal will receive a grade of W for all
courses. Any student who withdraws after the
deadline will receive WF grades in all courses and
will be subject to dismissal. Students who leave
UF without withdrawing normally receive failing
grades.
Students on academic probation who with-
draw from UF before the deadline will continue
on probation until their grade point deficit is
reduced to zero. Students on Admissions Com-
mittee probation must meet the terms of their
probation.

Nondegree Registration
Nondegree enrollment is restricted to partici-
pants in special programs, off-campus programs,


university-affiliated exchange programs, those
participants with nondegree educational objec-
tives at the university, and high school/college
dual credit enrollment. (Special regulations gov-
ern high school/college dual enrollment for aca-
demically advanced students in Florida high
schools. Refer to Admissions for additional
information.)
Students who have been denied admission to
UF for any term are not eligible for nondegree
registration. Students who have previously at-
tended 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 student, who must request
each institution to furnish records.
Nondegree enrollment is subject to the avail-
ability of faculty, space and facilities. No applica-
tion for admission is required; forms are available
from the Office of the University Registrar. Prior-
ity for nondegree enrollment is given to UF em-
ployees 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 ter-
minate a nondegree enrollment prior to regis-
tration for any term. Generally, nondegree
registration is for one term only.
* Nondegree students are not eligible for ad-
vance 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 reg-
istration; failure to register by that deadline
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 nondegree
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 en-
rolled, including UF, even if the student has
subsequently attended another institution.
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







ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


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 Flor-
ida immunization requirements.



Students are responsible for satisfying all aca-
demic 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 condi-
tions, religious holidays and participation in offi-
cial university activities such as music perform-
ances, 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.
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 laboratory
in which they are registered, and who have not
contacted the department to indicate their intent,
may be dropped from the course. The department
will notify students dropped from courses or
laboratories by posting a notice in the department
office. Students may request reinstatement on a
space-available basis if documented evidence is
presented.
Students must not assume that they will be
dropped if they fail to attend the first few days
of class.
The university recognizes the right of the in-
dividual professor to make attendance manda-
tory. After due warning, professors may prohibit
further attendance and subsequently assign a
failing grade for excessive absences.

Religious Holidays
The Board of Regents and state law govern
university policy regarding observance of reli-
gious holidays:
* Students, upon prior notification of their in-
structors, shall be excused from class or other
scheduled academic activity to observe a re-
ligious holy day of their faith.
* Students shall be permitted a reasonable
amount of time to make up the material or ac-
tivities covered in their absence.
* Students shall not be penalized due to absence
from class or other scheduled academic activ-
ity because of religious observances.
If a faculty member is informed of or is aware
that a significant number of students are likely to
be absent from his or her classroom because of a
religious observance, a major exam or other aca-
demic event should not be scheduled at that time.


Further, a student who is to be excused from
class for a religious holy day is not required to
provide a second party certification of the reasons
for the absence. Finally, a student who believes
that he or she has been unreasonably denied an
education benefit due to religious beliefs or prac-
tices may seek redress through the student griev-
ance procedure.

Illness Policy
Students who are absent from classes or ex-
aminations because of illness should contact their
professors. The student should contact his or her
college by the deadline to drop a course for medi-
cal reasons. After the college petition deadline,
students may petition the University Senate
Committee on Student Petitions to drop a course
for medical reasons.

Twelve-Day Rule
Students who participate in athletic or extra-
curricular 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 students
participating on an athletic or scholastic team, for
example. Consequently, a group's schedule that
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. No classes are 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 be-
cause of an assembly exam.


If two exams are scheduled at the same time,
assembly exams take priority over time-of-
class exams. When two assembly exams or two
time-of-class exams conflict, the course with the
higher number will take priority. Instructors
giving make-up exams will make the necessary
adjustments.




Student grades are recorded permanently by
the Office of the University Registrar.
The word "credit" refers to one semester
hour, generally representing one hour per week
of lecture or two or more hours per week of labo-
ratory work.
Passing Grades and Grade Points (1)

Note: I* or N* grades recorded on the student
record indicate the nonpunitive initial-term re-
ceipt 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 computation 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 con-
sidered collectively as a single term. I* and N*
grades are not assigned to graduating students;
they receive grades of I or NG.
An incomplete grade may be assigned at the
discretion of the instructor as an interim grade for
a course in which the student has completed a
major portion of the course with a passing grade,
been unable to complete course requirements
before the end of the term because of extenuating
circumstances, and obtained agreement from the
instructor and arranged for resolution of the








ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


incomplete grade. Instructors are not required to
assign incomplete grades.
If make-up work requires classroom or labora-
tory attendance in a subsequent term, the stu-
dents should not register for the course again;
instead, the student must audit the course and
pay audit fees (refer to special fees and charges in
the Expenses section of the catalog).
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.
When the course is completed, the instructor
will submit a change of grade to the registrar'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 as-
signment 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 honor-
ary societies will compute averages in accordance
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 computation formula,
please refer to the example below.
A grade point deficit is defined as the number
of grade points below a C average on hours at-
tempted 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 defi-
cit (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 de-
pendent upon first calculating the grade point
average. Multiply the total UF hours carried for a
grade by 2 (for 2.0 GPA) and subtract the total
grade points earned to determine the deficit. For
instance, if a student has taken 100 hours for a
grade, then 200 grade points are needed for a 2.0
GPA. If there are 196 grade points, there is a 4
point deficit.
Calculating Your Grade Point Average
Multiply grade value times the number of
credit hours for total grade points. Then divide
the total number of grade points by the number
of hours attempted. (Exclude hours attempted
under the S/U Option.)


Calculating Your GPA and Deficit Points


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

Since the GPA is less than 2.0, to figure the
grade point deficit:
11 total credit hours X 2.0 = 22 grade points
necessary for 2.0 GPA
22 16 (total grade points earned) = 6 deficit
points

Repeat Course Work
University of Florida course work that is re-
peated is counted in the computation of a stu-
dent's UF grade point average as many times as
grades for that course are recorded, although
credit hours will be awarded only once. However,
when a student earns a C or higher in a course,
repeats that course and earns a C or higher on the
subsequent enrollment, the new grade is not
computed into the UF grade point average nor are
additional credits awarded.
Students who entered UF with credit for AP
or IB courses who then repeat the equivalent
course at UF will receive a grade for the UF
course and no credit for the prior work.
Outcomes when repeated course work involves
only University of Florida course work:

GPAICredit
Grades Earned Computation
First grade lower Each grade computed
than a C in grade point aver-
Second grade of C age; credit earned

Second grade lower age; credit earned

First grade of C Only first grade
or higher computed in GPA;
Second grade of C credit earned only
or higher for first attempt.


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

In the case where all repeated course work
was taken at other institutions, no grades will
be calculated into the UF grade point average
and credit is awarded only once.
Repeat course equivalencies are identified
based on the state's common course taxonomy.
Refer to the statewide course numbering system
page at the back of this catalog for the defini-
tion of course equivalencies.
Colleges may not accept grade points and
hours earned from lower level courses, if they
are taken after the student has received
credit/grades for advanced courses or exam
credit in the same field

Satisfactory-Unsatisfactory (S-U)
Grade Option
Subject to college degree program and
department guidelines, students may take elec-
tive course work and earn grades of S (Satisfac-
tory) or U (Unsatisfactory). Grades earned under
the S-U option do not carry grade point values
and are not computed in the University of Florida
grade point average. Such grades are included in
a student's permanent academic record and are
reflected on the transcript. Once the S-U option
is approved, students may not revert to a letter
grade, nor elect the S-U option after the dead-
line. Students should note that other academic
institutions and agencies may interpret a grade of
"U" as a failing grade.
Students choosing the S-U option must be in
good standing and may not be on university
academic probation. To elect the S-U option, stu-
dents 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 that 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.







ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


Good Standing
The University of Florida has determined that
a student is in good standing if he or she is eligi-
ble to continue or to re-enroll at the university,
even if on probation.
Colleges may choose not to consider students
for admission to and may deny continuation in a
degree program if they fail to maintain reasonable
academic progress, as specified by the college or
department.
Policies on academic standing, probation and
dismissal are based on the possibility that a stu-
dent 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 addi-
tional academic standards and students are re-
sponsible 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 re-
sult in undue hardship, students may petition for
waiver of the regulation.
In general, petitions for waiver of an academic
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 Uni-
versity Registrar before the action is official.
All other petitions, including waivers for prior
terms, should be presented to the Office of the
University Registrar, which will refer them to the
University Senate Committee on Student Peti-
tions. 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 commit-
tee 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 established
by the state legislature. The purpose of the om-
budsman is to help students resolve problems
and conflicts. The office provides an informal
avenue of redress for students' problems and
grievances that arise in the course of interacting
with the institution. By considering problems in
an unbiased way, the ombudsman works to
achieve a fair resolution and to protect the rights
of all parties involved.
When an academic regulation appears to re-
sult in undue hardship, students may petition for
waiver of the regulation. If a student wishes to
appeal a decision of the University Senate Com-
mittee on Student Petitions, he/she may do so to
the university ombudsman in 135 Tigert Hall.

Probation
The intent of academic probation is to serve
notice formally that a student may not be making
satisfactory progress. The conditions of academic
probation are intended to specify the achievement
standards required to graduate; to identify un-
satisfactory academic performance at an early
date; to provide occasion for counseling; and to
give students whose ultimate success is in ques-
tion further opportunity to demonstrate their
ability to meet academic expectations.
Students may be placed on probation by their
college for failure to maintain normal aca-
demic progress in their degree program. Col-
lege probation will be removed when the col-
lege 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 defi-
cit of fewer than 15 shall be placed on aca-
demic 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 dismissed 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
indicate that they will not fulfill graduation re-
quirements 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
and their advance registration will be can-
celed. 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 approved to return to the university
after an initial dismissal will be placed on final
scholarship probation. If the grade point defi-
cit is still 15 or more at the end of the term,
students will be dismissed again with no pos-
sibility of registering, except by readmission
or by successful petition to re-enroll in the
Fresh Start Program.
* Any courses, including extension, correspon-
dence and courses taken at another institution
while dismissed from the University of Flor-
ida for academic reasons, will not be counted
as credit earned toward a University of Flor-
ida degree. However, upon approved read-
mission and with the recommendation of the
college, a student may appeal to the Univer-
sity Senate Committee on Student Petitions
for acceptance of such transfer credit.



Associate of Arts Certificate
Although not required, students may receive
an A.A. certificate. The Associate of Arts must be
awarded prior to the bachelor's degree. The Col-
lege 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 com-
putation 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 under-
graduate degrees:
Application for Degree
Students must file an application for degree
with the Office of the University Registrar by the
deadline. Students must apply in the term in
which they expect to graduate, regardless of ap-
plications 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 pub-
lic community college or other Florida state insti-
tution, provided they maintain continuous
enrollment (registration for and completion of at
least one course for one term in an academic
year).
Students who do not maintain continuous en-
rollment will be assigned the catalog in effect at
the time enrollment is resumed. Students with the







ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


approval of their college dean's office may opt to
graduate under the requirements of a later cata-
log, but they must fulfill all graduation require-
ments from that alternative catalog year.
The university will make every reasonable ef-
fort to honor the curriculum requirements appro-
priate to each student's catalog year. However,
courses and programs will sometimes be discon-
tinued 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 has been
recommended by the faculty.
College Level Academic Skills Test
Students seeking a degree must satisfactorily
complete the College Level Academic Skills Test.
Completion Deadline To Receive a Degree
All residence work required for graduation
must be completed at least 24 hours prior to
the scheduled meeting of the college faculty
voting on the candidates for degrees.
All extension work must be completed at least
two weeks prior to the scheduled meeting of
the college faculty voting on the candidates
for degrees.
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 applicable).
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 diploma replacement charge.


Dual Degrees and Multiple Majors
Colleges at their discretion may permit stu-
dents to pursue dual degrees or multiple majors.
A student completing major and college require-
ments in two different colleges will receive two
degrees. The transcript will list each degree and
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. The tran-
script will list the degree and each major. A stu-
dent completing multiple 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 each major.
Extension Work Restrictions
Students may take a maximum of 12 extension
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 exten-
sion 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 catalog
or consult the dean of the college for further
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 Requirement) in the Academic
Advising section.
Grade Point Average
To graduate, students must have a C average
(2.0) or better in all credits required toward the
degree and a C average 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 aca-
demic dishonesty or conduct violation is pending
if the penalty could be dismissal, expulsion, fail-
ing 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 subsequent
lower level course, as determined by their college.
Residence Requirements
* The minimum residence requirement for the
baccalaureate degree is two semesters.
* At least 25% of the credit hours applied to-
ward a degree must be earned while in resi-
dence 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 graduation
during summer terms at State University System
institutions. Credit earned through any of the
study abroad programs sponsored by the Univer-
sity 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, admin-
istration and staff share a responsibility to pro-
vide accurate information and effective advice.
The Office of the Provost is responsible for pro-
viding students, faculty and other advising staff
with accurate information in the catalog, schedule
of courses and other publications.
The Academic Advising Center is responsible
for acting as an information and referral center to
provide faculty advisers and students with timely
and accurate information on university-wide
requirements, policies, procedures and referrals
to appropriate services.
College/School and Department Responsibili-
ties: The dean of each college or school ultimately
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
www.isis.ufl.edu
UF has implemented Universal Tracking to
provide each student with a detailed plan for
graduation. The tracking audit includes informa-
tion 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 gradu-
ate. Early affiliation with a college enables the
university to provide the best academic advising
possible from the college offering the major. Uni-
versal tracking also provides information to help
students select a different college if there is con-
tinued academic difficulty meeting the require-
ments 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 effec-
tive 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 available in all critical
tracking courses.
The universal tracking system is available on-
line at www.isis.ufl.edu. This feature allows stu-
dents to match their academic records to the de-
gree 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 and Course
Placement (AP, IB, CLEF Exams)
A student may participate in several credit by
examination programs to earn credit toward a
degree. Credit received from one exam program
may not be duplicated by another. A maximum 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 ex-
amination score as evidence of completion of a
college-level course taken in high school. If the
results of the examination meet the requirements

listed in the charts below, the student will receive
university credit. The courses listed below indi-
cate the approximate UF course equivalencies that
will appear on the student's UF transcript. AP
credit will appear on the student's permanent
record.
Credit (AP or IB) will be awarded only once
for the same subject. UF credit awarded for dual
enrollment courses takes precedence over AP or
IB credit. If AP or IB credit is the issue, the exam
yielding the most credit will be awarded.
AP credit counts toward completion of the
general education (gen ed) 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 fulfill
part or all of the College of Liberal Arts and Sci-
ences language requirement.
Students who will continue their study of bi-
ology, chemistry, math and physics should con-
sult an academic adviser for placement.

Accelerated Programs
Combined Bachelor's and Master's Degrees
UF has developed a program for undergradu-
ates that allows those who qualify academically to
obtain both a bachelor's and master's degree. This
combined degree program allows students to
double-count graduate courses toward both an
undergraduate and graduate degree, thus reduc-
ing the time it takes to get both degrees. Qualified
students should consult their department adviser
to determine whether the department offers com-
bined degree programs and whether they qualify.
Most combined degree programs allow 12-15
hours of graduate course work (generally) to
apply toward the undergraduate degree. Here are
some advantages of this degree program:
* Qualified students can obtain an undergradu-
ate and a graduate degree in much less time
than two separate degrees.
The cost of both degrees is reduced, for 8-15
credits apply toward both degrees.
Students have time to decide whether to pur-
sue further graduate or professional study.
Students' marketability is greatly enhanced;
many professions now require a master's de-
gree for entry-level positions.
Program provides continuity between under-
graduate and graduate studies.
Bright Futures scholarship recipients will not
be funded for the graduate work taken as part of
the undergraduate degree; scholarship recipients
must fund the difference themselves.
Florida PrePaid College Tuition Program par-
ticipants will receive funding for the first 120
credit hours. The program will fund graduate
courses taken toward the undergraduate degree
at the undergraduate level.
Combined degree programs allow students to
get a head start on their graduate education by
taking graduate courses throughout the junior
and senior undergraduate years. Financial aid
may be available to assist with the graduate de-
gree portion of the program.
The Graduate Catalog can provide more in-
formation as well as a complete listing of com-
bined degree program offerings. Other programs
are being developed; refer to department web
sites for new offerings.

College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
Students may receive as many as 30 semester
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 exami-
nations based on the following scaled scores:


CLEP

NOTE: CLEP credit may not be used to fulfill 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 examination in
English. Experience has shown that those who
score below the 75th percentile are often handi-
capped 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 Col-
lege Composition) are taken, the essay option
must also be taken. A minimum score ensures
that the essay portion of the exam is eligible for
review by UF evaluators. This score in itself does
not guarantee that credit will be awarded; favor-
able 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 semes-
ter hours.
Students in the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences can use CLEP Spanish, French and Ger-
man examinations to exempt the college language
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
SAT II scores are used for placement in Eng-
lish composition, calculus, chemistry, Spanish,
French, German and Latin. Before registering for
any composition course except ENC 1101, all
freshmen must present an SAT II writing test
score or appropriate AP or IB scores. Freshmen
with SAT verbal scores of 650 or above or ACT
verbal scores of 29 or above should take ENC 1102
or a more advanced English Department writing
or literature course.
Students must submit SAT II scores if they
plan to enroll in chemistry (CHM 2045 or 2047),
calculus, French, German, Latin or Spanish (with
prior study in these languages). Students may
substitute AP/IB credit for any SAT II examina-
tions. Consult the Admissions SAT II section.
Superior results allow students to enter ad-
vanced courses at the beginning of their college
careers, to fulfill some requirements by examina-
tion rather than by course work, and in some
instances to earn credit toward the degree.

hours in that category) and take only six hours in
either of the other two categories.
The schedule of courses includes a list of all
courses that fulfill each category as well as the

Common, collective knowledge about the
world enables us to communicate, to make in-
formed decisions about many aspects of our lives,
to understand and to participate fully as informed
citizens in local, national and global matters.
By attaining competency in goals and meth-
ods in the humanities, physical and biological
sciences, mathematics and social and behavioral
sciences, we can better understand ourselves,
our neighbors, other cultures and times, and the
principles governing the natural world and the
universe. In general education courses, students
gain fresh perspectives, methods and tools for
understanding the traditional and the newly
discovered.







ACADEMIC ADVISING


The general education program requires
courses in the following areas:
Composition
Composition courses equip students with the
skills necessary to complete successfully the
reading and writing requirements of their disci-
plines. In addition to fulfilling a portion of the
Gordon Rule communication requirement, com-
position courses offer instruction in methods of
writing, conventions of standard written English,
reading and comprehension skills, and ways of
making expository and argumentative prose
accessible to readers in varied situations. These
courses are writing-intensive and require exten-
sive practice, and each writer receives feedback
for revision.
Courses can be found primarily in the English
department and the Center for Written and Oral
Communication.
Consult the placement tables for course selec-
tion. Students with any of the following scores or
higher cannot register for ENC 1101: SAT 650
Verbal, ACT 29 English, SAT II 590 Writing, AP
scores of 3 or higher and IB scores of 4 or more.
Mathematical Sciences
Courses in mathematical sciences help stu-
dents acquire concepts and skills in logic, induc-
tive and deductive reasoning, and abstract and
quantitative thinking. Students also learn to rea-
son critically, solve problems creatively, assess
statistical evidence, use technology effectively
and form conclusions.
Students must take at least three hours of ap-
proved mathematics courses; the other three
credits can be from approved courses such as
statistics and computer science courses outside
the math department.
Courses in mathematical sciences can be
found in the departments of Computer and In-
formation Sciences, Mathematics, Philosophy,
Statistics and some Engineering departments.
Humanities
The humanities requirement enables students
to think critically about what artists and thinkers
(past and present) have to teach us about the non-
material qualities of human beings and human
values. In courses in the arts and humanities,
students become acquainted with the enduring
products-in words, sounds, paint, stone, metal
and many other media-in which thoughtful and
gifted human beings have attempted to meet our
individual and collective needs for emotional,
spiritual and intellectual fulfillment.
Arts and humanities courses address major
intellectual, cultural and aesthetic achievements.
Students consider questions of ultimate meaning
and study human activities, artifacts and values
in the context of the ages in which they were
produced.
Courses can be found in the departments of
African and Asian Languages and Literatures,
Afro-American Studies, Anthropology, Astron-
omy, Botany, Classics, Engineering, English,
Geography, Germanic and Slavic Studies, His-
tory, Jewish Studies, Linguistics, Music, Philoso-
48


phy, Religion, Romance Languages and Litera-
tures, Theatre & Dance and Women's Studies.
Social and Behavioral Sciences
In the social and behavioral sciences, students
investigate human behavior in its social context.
Students analyze the characteristics and structure
of individuals, families, groups and institutions to
develop an understanding of the human species.
Often using scientific and quantitative methods,
students examine the processes and means by
which participants in society make personal and
group decisions.
Courses in this area can be found in the de-
partments of African and Asian Languages and
Literatures, Anthropology, Criminology, Eco-
nomics, Education, Geography, Health Science
Education, History, Human Resource Develop-
ment, Linguistics, Political Science, Psychology,
Religion, Sociology, Telecommunication and
Women's Studies.
Natural Sciences -
Physical and Biological Sciences
Courses in the natural sciences introduce stu-
dents to the basic concepts of science and the
scientific method and enhance awareness of scien-
tific developments and their impact on society
and the environment. This area provides students
with an understanding of scientific terms, con-
cepts and theories, and the ability to formulate
empirically testable hypotheses derived from the
study of physical processes and living things.
Courses satisfying the two areas can be found
in the departments of Agronomy, Anthropology,
Astronomy, Botany, Chemistry, Entomology and
Nematology, Environmental Engineering, For-
estry, Geography, Geology, Physics, Plant Pathol-
ogy, Psychology, Soil and Water Science, Wildlife
Ecology and Zoology.
International/Diversity Focus
The United States is part of the global com-
munity and is increasingly diverse as a nation.
The international and diversity requirement pro-
vides basic concepts and tools to help students
understand and appreciate diversity among peo-
ple. Courses focus on diversity among nations
(the international component) and/or within a
nation (including the U.S.). The latter includes
differences such as gender, class, race, ethnicity,
sexuality or culture.
Courses meeting this requirement may make
students aware of non-Western influences or they
may immerse students in a culture quite different
from mainstream U.S. culture. These courses give
students new lenses through which to view, and
thereby understand, people and/or world events.
Six credits of course work must have an inter-
national and/or diversity focus. These courses
will always be in combination with a course that
fulfills another category.
Study abroad courses can apply toward this
six-hour requirement, in addition to fulfilling
credit in other categories. Such courses must be
approved in advance by a department adviser,
certified by the UF International Center (UFIC)
and taken in a foreign setting.


Additional General Education Information
Students can take courses at the 14000 level;
in most colleges, students can complete these
requirements throughout their undergraduate
experience.
First-year students generally take introduc-
tory 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.
Requirements M (mathematical sciences), P
(physical sciences) and B (biological sciences)
include the study of pure science (e.g., phys-
ics, chemistry and calculus) and their techno-
logical applications (e.g., nuclear energy, envi-
ronmental science and computer theory). Stu-
dents should pursue a balanced program of
pure and applied sciences to complete these
requirements.
All general education courses are identified at
the back of the catalog under department
course listings. General education courses
have a letter designations) after the course
entry, which corresponds to the first letter of
the category. For example: AMH 2010, United
States to 1877, fulfills three credits in the hu-
manities (H) category.
Advanced Placement (AP) and Inter-national
Baccalaureate (IB) credit can be applied to
general education requirements.
CLEP credit may not be used to satisfy gen-
eral 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 track for specific information.

Pre-professional Programs
Pre-Law
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 communi-
cation. Any major will suffice for admission to
law school, but courses emphasizing writing,
critical thinking, analysis and reading are best.
The Office of Health and Legal Professions
Advising (OHLPA) in the College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences, 207 Academic Advising Center,
serves as a central source of pre-law information.
Students should attend a workshop or read the
Pre-Law Handbook (www.advising.ufl.edu.) before
making an appointment with a pre-law adviser.
The OHLPA library in 206 AAC has LSAT/
LSDAS registration forms, sample applications
and general information about workshops and
other pre-law programs.
OHLPA also serves as a central office for col-
lecting and forwarding letters of evaluation to law
schools and is similar to the services provided by
LSDAS. Files for letters of evaluation should be
set up in the office early in the year in which






ACADEMIC ADVISING


applications to law school will be sent (usually
the spring of the junior year).
Pre-Health
Students intending to go to medical, dental,
veterinary medical, optometry, podiatry or chiro-
practic school may choose almost any major. Such
students should not pursue majors that prepare
them for specific health professions such as
therapeutic recreation, physical therapy, occupa-
tional therapy, nursing or pharmacy.
Pre-health students should plan to complete
the following courses. It is important to note that
some health professions do not require all of these
courses, and some require more. Also, require-
ments vary from program to program, so stu-
dents should carefully investigate the require-
ments of the college to which they plan to apply.
* Mathematics: At least two semesters of col-
lege-level mathematics; one semester of cal-
culus (MAC 2311 or 3472) is recommended.
Some medical schools stipulate additional cal-
culus courses.
General Chemistry: CHM 2040-2041-2046 and
CHM 2045L-2046L; or CHM 2045-2046 and
2045L-2046L; or CHM 2050-2051 and CHM
2045L-2046L; or CHM 2047 and 2047L.
Organic Chemistry: CHM 2210-2211 and
2211L; or CHM 2215-2216 and CHM 2215L-
2216L; or CHM 3217-3218.
Biochemistry: One semester is recommended
by most professional schools and required by
many medical schools. BCH 4024 or CHM
4207.
Physics: PHY 2053-2054 and PHY 2053L-
2054L; or PHY 2048-2049 and PHY 2048L-
2049L.
Biology: BSC 2010-2011 and BSC 2010L-2011L.
English: At least two semesters at the college
level. Some medical schools require three
courses in English with emphasis on composi-
tion. Many medical schools do not stipulate
whether their English requirements are for
composition or literature courses, but compo-
sition courses are recommended to strengthen
communication skills and help prepare for
admission tests.
Additional Course Requirements: Pre-veterinary
students should take:
ASG 3003C Intro. to Animal Science
ASG 3402 Principles of Animal
Nutrition
PCB 3063 Genetics
MCB 3020-3020L Basic Biology of Micro-
organisms and Lab
STA 2023 Introduction to Statistics
Pre-optometry students should take:
PSY 2013 General Psychology, plus an
additional psychology
course
MCB 3020-3020L Basic Biology of Micro-
organisms and Lab
STA 2023 Intro. to Statistics
Also recommended are
PET 2320C Applied Human Anatomy
PET 2350C Applied Human Physiology


Pre-dental students are encouraged to take
additional courses in the following:
* Microbiology, psychology and other so-
cial and behavioral sciences and PCB 5235,
Immunology.
All students considering medical, dental,
veterinary medical, optometry, podiatry or
chiropractic school should review the Health
Professions Handbook, available online at http://
www.advising.ufl.edu/ohlpa/tocHealth Profes-
sions.html.
Students also are encouraged to attend work-
shops offered by the Academic Advising Center.
Health profession workshops for freshmen and
sophomores are offered in the fall semester. Ap-
plication workshops are offered in the spring for
students who are about to apply to a postbacca-
laureate health professions program. An inter-
view workshop is offered early in the fall. For
more information on workshops or to meet with a
pre-health professions adviser, contact the Aca-
demic Advising Center.

Honors Program
www.honors.ufl.edu
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 or above on the SAT (test taken
after March 1995) or 30 composite on the ACT.
Honors program candidates also must have an
academic high school grade point average of 3.8
or higher, as computed by the university. Honors
program students are eligible for special honors
classes and housing in an honors dormitory.
To remain in the program, students must en-
roll in at least one honors course each semester
until they achieve junior standing (60 or more
earned hours) or complete four semesters and
maintain an overall grade point average of 3.0.
For more information, explore the honors web
site.
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 mate-
rials and more independent work. Students en-
hance their skills through extensive reading,
writing and oral presentations.
Students who satisfy the honors program re-
quirements with a 3.0 overall average and com-
plete the general education requirement by 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 cer-
tificate 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 a
baccalaureate degree with honors, high honors 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 re-
ceive recognition on the President's Honor Roll.
Each student so honored will receive the Presi-
dent's Honor Roll certificate.

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 Ac-
counting 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 capa-
bilities, professionalism, interpersonal skills and
adaptability necessary to assume leadership roles
in a changing professional and business environ-
ment. The school's degree programs are consis-
tently ranked in the top ten in the nation by vari-
ous academic and professional surveys. Most
recently (1998), the graduate and undergraduate
programs were ranked seventh and twelfth re-
spectively 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 ac-
counting 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.
The Fisher School of Accounting and the College
of Law offer a program of study leading to the
joint awarding of the Juris Doctorate and M.Acc.
degrees (JD/M.Acc.).
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 ca-
reer opportunities in accounting and business and
to apply to graduate and professional degree
programs in accounting, business or law.
Students wishing to prepare for a profes-
sional career in accounting should complete 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 stu-
dents 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 concern-
ing the 3/2 program, including the specializations
in financial/auditing, systems or tax, are included


in the Graduate Catalog, which can be obtained
by writing the Office of Admissions, Box 114000,
University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611-4000.
Additional information also is available from the
Fisher School of Accounting, Box 117166, Univer-
sity of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611-7166.
Prospective students should know about the
five-year postsecondary education requirement to
sit for the Certified Public Accountants examina-
tion 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 17 fac-
ulty members, with Ph.D. degrees from the na-
tion's leading universities. The faculty is commit-
ted to excellence in teaching, research and service.
In addition to publishing the school's own re-
search journal, the faculty actively contribute to
the accounting profession by maintaining edito-
rial positions for major accounting journals, par-
ticipating in professional organizations at the
national and state levels and providing services to
major corporations 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 founded (in 1938) and is recog-
nized as one of the best chapters in the country.
An active professional program to promote
professional awareness is conducted by Beta
Alpha Psi each year, including guest speakers,
panel discussions, field trips and other activities.
Beta Alpha Psi co-sponsors the Graduate Ac-
counting Conference, which annually attracts
more than 200 accounting practitioners, and
co-sponsors the spring banquet. Members of
Beta Alpha Psi provide services to the school
through the tutoring program and peer counsel-
ing. Service to the community is provided in the
form of the VITA (voluntary income tax assistant)
program.
Beta Alpha Psi accepts applications for
memberships every semester. Membership re-
quirements include high ethical standards and a
minimum grade point average. Scholastic re-
quirements in Beta Alpha Psi include:
Undergraduate:
Completion of at least 12 hours of 3000-level
or above accounting courses at UF with a cu-
mulative 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 must
have completed at least one 5000-level or
higher accounting course.
A 3.1 cumulative average in 3000-level or
above accounting courses at UF; and
A 3.0 cumulative average for all work com-
pleted in the junior and senior years at UF.


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 student activity fees. The council
serves as a liaison between accounting 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; after attending three
consecutive meetings, students are eligible to
vote. 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 orien-
tation program, Career Expo, Footnotes (weekly
announcements to accounting classes) and publi-
cation of The Fisherman (the Fisher School of
Accounting newsletter). The council also is in-
volved with UF Homecoming and Gator Expo in
the fall, and the spring awards banquet. Finally,
the council presents professional programs to
accounting students, often in cooperation with
Beta Alpha Psi or the Florida Accounting Associa-
tion. These programs expose students to ac-
counting in public, private, industrial and gov-
ernment 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. Member-
ship 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.
An executive committee consisting of the
president, vice-president, treasurer, secretary and
social coordinator plans FAA functions. Elections
are held early each semester. Activities of the
FAA involve social events such as picnics and
semiformal parties and professional programs.
Student Senate
The Fisher School of Accounting elects one
senator to the Student Senate. The Student Senate
meets weekly to handle various student concerns
and business matters, including the distribution
of student activity fees.
Center for Accounting Research and
Professional Education
The Center for Accounting Research and Pro-
fessional Education provides an umbrella for
research and professional education activities.
The research component of the center encourages
and facilitates theoretical and applied research by
accounting faculty and students. The center
publishes the Journal of Accounting Literature,






COLLEGES


sponsors research seminars and a biannual con-
ference, produces a working paper series, and
serves as a research information source for faculty
and students. The professional education compo-
nent of the center serves the business and profes-
sional 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 em-
phasis is on one- and two-day programs that
address national issues.

Admission to the School
Submitting an Undergraduate Application
The Fisher School of Accounting applies the
same admission standards to students currently
enrolled at the university (natives) and those
seeking entry to the Fisher School from another
academic institution (transfers).
Native students who have selected accounting
as their major upon entering the university auto-
matically will be classified as accounting students.
This classification will remain as long as the stu-
dent meets the continuation requirements de-
scribed 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 A.A. degree and a 3.0 minimum GPA, the
student will shift from continuation status to
retention status (2.0 GPA required).

Undergraduate Transfer Applicant Pool
The Fisher School of Accounting uses an ap-
plicant pool for undergraduate admissions. All
applicants who meet minimum standards are
placed into a pool from which the most qualified
are selected for admission each term. Because of
this process, most admission decisions are not
made until well after the application deadline.
It is unlikely that all students who meet the
minimum standards will be admitted. A Fisher
School of Accounting faculty committee is re-
sponsible for admission decisions, which are not
based solely on GPA. Factors such as perform-
ance in any accounting courses completed prior to
application and the overall quality of the aca-
demic record are considered for admission.


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.
Completion of 19 semester hours of prepro-
fessional course work. Although a student
will be considered for admission upon com-
pletion of the 12 preprofessional credit hours
described below, all preprofessional courses
are prerequisites for 3-4000 level courses.
Students who have not completed all 19 hours
upon admission will delay progress toward
graduation.
The following preprofessional courses must
be completed at the time of application:
ACG 2021C, Introduction to Financial Ac-
counting, 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 in lieu of the cal-
culus requirement. Four credits awarded for
the AP examination in calculus will satisfy the
MAC 2233 requirement.
Students who have taken calculus at state in-
stitutions 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 have been com-
pleted successfully prior to enrollment.
ECO 2013, Principles of Macroeconomics, or
equivalent.
ECO 2023, Principles of Microeconomics, or
equivalent.
CGS 2531, Introduction to Computer Soft-
ware, or equivalent.
STA 2023, Introduction to Statistics 1, or
equivalent.
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.
* In the case of a transfer student from the state
of Florida, an Associate of Arts degree (A.A.)
is required before enrolling in the Fisher
School.
* 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 guar-


antee admission to the Fisher School. Admission
is selective and is subject to enrollment capacity.
Priority in admission will be given to those appli-
cants whose record indicates the greatest likeli-
hood 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 guaran-
tee admission to the Fisher School. Admission to
the Fisher School does not constitute admission to
the 3/2 program; this requires a separate applica-
tion to the Graduate School.
Admission eligibility standards for UF stu-
dents apply equally to transfer students who
received their A.A. degrees from Florida public
community colleges 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 stu-
dents 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 Market-
ing, Principles of Finance, Principles of Man-
agement and accounting courses beyond the
introductory level.
A maximum of four semester credits may be
allowed for courses taken during the first two
years that are available only as third and fourth-
year professional courses in the Warrington Col-
lege 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 college
course, waivers may be granted on an individual
basis, but the student will be required to take
another course in the area waived. The depart-
ment will identify the substitute course. Com-
munity 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
SUS institutions or applicants who have not com-
pleted the A.A. and CLAST are not guaranteed
admission to the Fisher School. These students
will be considered on a case-by-case basis and will
be admitted selectively when space permits.
Prospective accounting students attending other
four-year institutions should follow a course of
study similar to the general education and pre-
professional requirements taken by freshmen and
sophomores at UF. Courses that are a part of the
third, fourth and fifth-year requirements should
be avoided prior to entering UF.
The Office of the University Registrar deter-
mines the transferability of credit earned by







ACCOUNTING


course work at other institutions. Credit for
vocational or technical courses, repeats of previ-
ous courses taken or credits from non-accredited
institutions will not transfer 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 and should com-
plete them early in the spring term of their fourth
year.

Fisher School Requirements
Academic Advising
The associate director and undergraduate ad-
visers are available for counseling on an ap-
pointment 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 re-
quirements for a particular program and indicates
whether or not the student has met each require-
ment. Students should pay close attention to
these audits and should seek assistance from their
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 preprofessional
or degree requirements. These forms may be
obtained from the Fisher School office and should
be completed 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 de-
scription 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 for approval to the UF department that
offers the course.
The student must then return the signed
forms for approval to the Fisher School.
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 any preprofessional, accounting or business
core course work at any other institution.
Students who have taken 3-4000 level courses
at accredited universities prior to entering the
Fisher School should submit course substitution
forms. A maximum of one 34000 level approved
business core course may count toward the stu-
dent's undergraduate degree.
Accounting course work taken elsewhere gen-
erally 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 as electives. Courses taken to
satisfy preparatory course or degree requirements
for the M.Acc. program may not be taken S-U.

Unsatisfactory Performance
Students who do not make satisfactory aca-
demic progress will be dropped from the ac-
counting program. In addition to university
regulations concerning unsatisfactory perform-
ance, the school will exclude students from fur-
ther registration for the following reasons:

Freshmen and Sophomores:
* The student does not comply with the mini-
mum universal tracking requirements.
The student has not earned a B grade in
ACG2021C after two attempts (including
withdrawal).
The student's cumulative grade point average
falls below 3.0 and remains there after one
subsequent term of enrollment.
The student withdraws from the university
three times while classified as an AC student.
Juniors and Seniors:
The student earns two grades below C in
accounting courses numbered above 3000 re-
gardless of whether the student was in the
Fisher School at the time they earned those
grades.
The student's accounting grade point average,
calculated on all attempts of all required ac-
counting courses numbered 3000 and above
falls below 2.0 and remains there after one
term of enrollment.
The student's cumulative grade point average
falls below 2.0 and remains there after one
subsequent term of enrollment.
The student withdraws from the university
three times after admission to the Fisher
School of Accounting.
The student fails to register for a required
34000 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 drop/add).
Summer registration is viewed as registration
for one term (e.g., whether a student registers


for Summer A alone or a combination of
Summer A, B or C, the student is considered
registered for one term).
Students not in the Fisher School who regis-
ter 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
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 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 official
record and will be recorded on the student's tran-
script ("W").
Withdrawal in any term (fall, spring or sum-
mer) is counted as one drop for the purpose of
applying the two-drop policy.
The associate director as advised by the Pro-
fessional Program Committee must act upon all
other drop requests. The committee is very strict
when 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 af-
ter drop/add and prior to the period governed by
the University Senate Committee on Student
Petitions.

Drop Request Prior to the Deadline
Students pick up a pink drop form and a
bubble sheet from the Fisher School.
The pink drop form must be completed and
'signed by the course instructor.
The department offering the course must
initial or stamp the completed bubble sheet.
Students return the forms to the Fisher School
for approval.
The drop is not official until the student proc-
esses the bubble sheet 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 Peti-
tions. 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 correspondence.
Required courses (in preprofessional, accounting

The student will have more than 30 hours left
to graduate from the Fisher School upon com-
pletion of such courses.
The student obtains the advance approval of
the associate director.

Graduation Requirements
Application for Graduation
Each student should plan to see an adviser in
the semester prior to the term of planned gradua-
tion to confirm that all degree requirements will
be met pending successful completion of the
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 minimum
of 16 semester credit hours of 3-4000 level ac-
counting 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 re-
peated 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

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.


Dean's List and Honors
For the fall and spring semesters, students
who have earned a 3.5 or better grade point aver-
age, based on a minimum of 14 semester hours
taken for letter grades, are eligible for the Dean's

course work taken at UF will be included in these
computations.
Junior and senior level course work shall
include all course work in excess of 60 semes-
ter hours.
Major course work shall include the five re-
quired undergraduate accounting courses.
To be awarded high or highest honors, the

dale (FLREC), West Florida (WFREC) and Ft.
Pierce (IRREC) Research and Education Centers.
The University of Florida's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) offers off-
campus degree programs in environmental
horticulture or entomology at Fort Lauderdale;
environmental horticulture or natural resource
conservation at Milton; and horticultural sciences
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 uni-
versity. Once accepted, students can pursue a
Bachelor of Science without moving to Gaines-
ville. UF faculty teach and advise students. Upon
completion of the requirements for the degree, UF
confers degree.
Satellite campus students are eligible for UF
and College of Agriculture scholarships. Courses
are also available to the general public as con-
tinuing education courses. For additional infor-
mation about these satellite campuses, please
consult the following web sites:

COLLEGES


Requirements for Admission
Academic Advising
Academic advising within the college is pro-
vided by college faculty. Each major has an un-
1,..l ,.i ,.- ,l, .:...'i dinator and undergraduate
..1, i.. r y-,Il. 'i.i interested in a major in the
college should see the undergraduate coordinator
or an adviser in the major. A list of undergradu-
ate coordinators and advisers is available in 2002
McCarty Hall. It is college policy that each stu-
dent discusses his/her academic plans with an
adviser in the major before each registration to
receive academic and career counseling advice.

Freshman Students
Any student classified as a first semester
freshman at the university will be admitted to the
college when they declare a major within the B.S.
or B.S.F.R.C. degree programs. At that time, their
college classification will become AG or FY.
These students will maintain the AG or FY classi-
fication as long as they continue to meet or exceed
the universal tracking criteria for the major. Stu-
dents who fall below the minimum progression
standards will not be allowed to continue in the
maior. These students must meet with an aca-
demic adviser within the college 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 formally apply to a major in the
college. Students will be admitted to the major if
they meet or exceed the universal tracking criteria
published in the catalog. Performance in and
completion of courses in math, biology, chemistry
and physics in the first four semesters are the
primary criteria for determining admission to a
major. Requirements for admission vary de-
pending on the major; therefore, it is important to
complete all requirements.

Computer Requirement
Refer to the university's home page at
http://www.ufl.edu or the CIRCA home page at
http://www.circa.ufl.eduicomputers 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 are
required of all students. Computers are used
increasingly for completion of classroom assign-
ments, accessing the Internet and exchange of
e-mail. The college's policy provides maximum
flexibility. Below are the minimum recommended
hardware and software requirements.

Software
Windows95, MS Office Suite or Corel Word-
Perfect Suite or a word processor, a spreadsheet, a
presentation graphics program and software for
e-mail, Internet and web communication.
Of the departments in the college that rec-
ommend specific software, most prefer MS Office
Small Business Edition or Office Pro 97 (same as
SBE, but includes PowerPoint and Access).
Students could obtain the above configuration
in a laptop computer for the ability to participate
in classroom and Internet activities while on
campus. Presently, there are only limited course
offerings requiring such capability. A laptop
computer is typically 25% more costly than an
equivalent desktop computer. Also, it is advisable
to purchase a modular and upgradeable (RAM,
hard drive, CD-ROM) laptop. Most computers
(laptop or desktop) will require upgrade.
There are several circumstances where stu-
dents might not want to follow the guidelines
listed above. These include: 1) Already own a
computer, with software and peripherals and
would like to use this. 2) Prefer to lease a com-
puter instead of purchasing one. Either of these is
acceptable; however, students are responsible for
meeting any assigned work that requires com-
puter use, including specific software and hard-
ware. Students must resolve any compatibility
problems that might arise.
The college guidelines listed above have been
chosen for maximum compatibility with com-
puter activities on campus, although additional


software may be necessary to meet the require-
ments of a specific course.

Graduate Education
The college offers four advanced degrees:
Master of Agriculture, Master of Science, Master
of Agricultural Management and Resource De-
velopment and Doctor of Philosophy. Students
considering graduate study should consult their
advisers to ensure proper program planning.

Career Planning and Placement
The college has a career resource center
placement liaison to help students prepare for
interviews and find employment. The college also
sponsors an annual Agriculture and Natural
Resources Career Day in February.

Scholarships
The college and its academic units provide
$400,000 annually for student scholarships. Ap-
plications for college scholarships are available in
2002 McCarty Hall from October 15 to January 10.
College scholarships and letters of recommenda-
tion are due in 2001 McCarty on or before January
15 each year. Scholarships also are available
through each academic unit. Contact the under-
graduate coordinator for the major.

IFAS Ambassadors
IFAS Ambassadors are selected through a
competitive process and commit two semesters to
promote awareness of academic programs in
food, agriculture and natural resources among
students in Florida. In addition to supporting
food, agriculture and natural resources, the am-
bassadors participate in a program designed to
enhance their leadership ability. As the official
student representatives of IFAS, the ambassadors
work with students, civic groups and the food,
agricultural and natural resource industries
across the state and at national conferences. Ap-
plications for the fall program are accepted the
previous spring semester.

Gamma Sigma Delta Honor Society
Gamma Sigma Delta honor society recognizes
the academic achievements and accomplishments
of students, faculty and alumni whose work has
contributed to food, agriculture, natural resources
and life sciences. Its purpose is to promote high
achievement and to recognize individuals who
excel. Juniors and seniors 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
Alpha Zeta is a professional service and hon-
orary agricultural society. Members are selected
from among undergraduate and graduate stu-
dents of high scholarship on the basis of charac-
ter, leadership and personality. Alpha Zeta fosters
high standards of scholarship, character, leader-
ship and fellowship among its members, and
furthers the development of food, agriculture,
natural resources and life sciences.

Universal Tracking and Academic
Progression Standards
All applicants must have completed two se-
quential courses of foreign language in secondary
school or 8-10 semester hours at the post-
secondary level, or document an equivalent level
of proficiency.
Because of the diversity among degree pro-
grams offered by the college, the specific re-
quirements for each major are listed separately on
the following pages. Students should contact the
undergraduate adviser for their major once they
are admitted to the college. They should com-
plete the course requirements for the major in the
semester designated in the catalog and on the
universal tracking audit. The student's under-
graduate adviser will make any adjustments.
Each student must complete 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 before each registration to ensure the
appropriate courses in the appropriate sequence.
The college monitors this policy by examining
each student's schedule after registration. Stu-
dents not enrolled in appropriate courses will not
be allowed to register the following term.
Transfer Students
To be eligible for admission to the college, a
transfer student from a Florida public community
college must have an Associate of Arts degree
and must satisfy the minimum admission re-
quirements set forth for the intended major.
Community college students should consult an
academic adviser to ensure completion of the
courses that will satisfy the admission require-
ments for their intended majors within the col-
lege. Transfer students from other universities
and non-Florida public community colleges
should complete the first two years' requirements
for the major prior to transferring to the univer-
sity and to this college. Students can also view
transfer requirements for each major at
www.isis.ufl.edu.
Transfer students should avoid specialized
1-2000 level courses related to their major. These
courses can be taken to better advantage after the
student has acquired the appropriate background
in general education, basic science and mathe-
matics.
Postbaccalaureate Students
A student who has received a baccalaureate
degree may be admitted under certain circum-
stances as a postbaccalaureate student (6AG).
Postbaccalaureate applicants 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 students.
Students must declare a major and meet with an
adviser in that major to plan and approve a pro-
gram of study. In addition, postbaccalaureate
students must comply with college and university
rules and regulations and meet all deadlines 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 student
must consult an adviser to plan and get approval
for the courses in which to enroll.

Normal Loads
The average course load in the college is 15
credit hours during fall and spring and 12 credit
hours during summer. A student should not
register for more than 17 credit hours unless ap-
proved by an adviser and the dean. Students may
register for fewer than 12 hours, but should be
aware that certain university privileges and bene-
fits require a minimum enrollment of 12 hours. It
is the student's responsibility to verify the mini-
mum 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 were earned, but subject to
university and college degree requirements.
Courses in excess of 60 hours will be recorded on
the student's UF transcript and may be used to
satisfy curriculum requirements, but such courses
will not reduce the number of credit hours re-
quired 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 to earn a baccalau-
reate degree. Some course work may be taken at
another accredited four-year institution of higher
education with advance approval. The last 30
semester hours applied toward a UF degree must
be completed in residence in this college.
Satisfactory-Unsatisfactory Grade Option
Undergraduate students in the college 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 stu-
dent's permanent academic record and are re-
flected on the transcript. Students should be
aware that other academic institutions, agencies
and organizations may interpret a grade of U as a
failing grade in their GPA 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 is in addition to courses
taught only on an S-U basis. Courses taken to
fulfill general education, Gordon Rule or required
courses for the major may not be taken S-U.
For fall, spring and summer C terms, the S-U
option deadline is 4:00 p.m., Friday, the third
week of classes. For summer A and B terms, the
deadline is 4:00 p.m., Wednesday, the second
week of classes. Once the S-U option is ap-
proved, students may not revert to a letter grade.

Probation and Dismissal
College Probation: A student whose junior/
senior level grade point average falls below 2.0 is
placed on college probation. The assistant dean
for undergraduate academic programs will notify
the student that s/he is on probation and must
bring up his/her UF grade point average up to 2.0
during that semester or s/he must remove at least
three (3) deficit points. As long as a student has a
deficit record, s/he must continue removing three
deficit points a semester until the overall UF
grade point average is 2.0. Failure to remove
three deficit points a semester will result in col-
lege suspension for one semester.
During college suspension, a student cannot
register as a College of Agriculture student. With
approval of the student's adviser and the assis-
tant 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 minimum of three
deficit points per semester to continue enrolling.
Drop Policy
Courses may be dropped during the
drop/add period without penalty. Thereafter,
courses may be dropped only by college petition
in accordance with the deadline. Drops requiring
college petition are subject to the following rules:
* Two unrestricted drops after the drop/add
period will be permitted for a student classi-
fied as 1AG/FY and 2AG/FY. Students clas-
sified as 3AG/FY, 4AG/FY, 6AG/FY and
OAG/FY are allowed one unrestricted drop.
An adviser must approve all drops before the
college can process them.
* After the college deadline, students must
petition the dean.
* Students withdrawing from UF (dropping
their full course load) must contact the Dean
of Students Office in 202 Peabody Hall.

Withdrawal Policy
If a College of Agriculture student withdraws
from UF a second time, that student will be
placed on college probation. A third withdrawal
violates the probation and the student cannot
register again as a student in the college.








COLLEGES


Practical Work Experience
By prior arrangement with an adviser, a stu-
dent may, with supervision, receive credit for
practical work experience relevant to the major.
Credit is earned at the rate of one credit per
month of full-time work and may not exceed
three credits in any combination of experiences. A
written report must be submitted before a grade
(S-U) will be issued. Academic units offering this
option list the course number 4941. Guidelines
establishing minimum criteria for credit eligibility
and performance are available from the under-
graduate coordinator for the major.

Special Certificates
Environmental Studies: A program for a spe-
cialization (with certificate) in environmental
studies provides a broad knowledge of the envi-
ronment, especially in the interrelationships be-
tween human activities and environmental qual-
ity. With this specialization and a major in the
college, the student can apply knowledge in their
major to the solution of environmental problems.
The environmental studies specialization in-
cludes environmental courses in three basic
groups: biological sciences, physical sciences and
social sciences. At least one course from each
group is required. A minimum of 14 semester
hours' credit is required for the certificate; three
hours outside the college also is required.
The student and academic adviser determine
courses for the specialization from an approved
list. These requirements generally can be met
through a wise choice of electives.

Computer Sciences: A program for speciali-
zation (with certificate) in computer sciences is
available for students to enhance their College of
Agriculture degree program with a coordinated
set of computer science courses. Any student in
this college can pursue this certificate.
The student must complete 13 credits in spe-
cific courses offered by the Department of Com-
puter 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..

Graduation Requirements
A Bachelor of Science degree requires at least
120 credits. In addition, students must have at
least a 2.0 grade point average both in their junior
and senior-level work and at the university.
Finally, students must complete the general edu-
cation and major requirements in effect at the
time of their initial 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 lists the deadline. Seniors must
request a degree audit from the dean's office at
the beginning of their senior year.


Residence Requirements
The last 30 semester hours applied toward the
degree must be completed in residence in the
college. In special cases the dean's office can
waive this requirement. Students may complete
six semester hours by correspondence among the
30 semester credits of residence work required for
the baccalaureate degree, but each course must be
approved in advance by the undergraduate coor-
dinator for the major and the college dean. The
college will not accept correspondence credit
unless a student has a junior/senior level 2.0 or
higher GPA 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
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 baccalaureate degrees. The last 30 semes-
ter hours to be applied toward a degree must be
completed in residence in the college.

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.

College Honors Program: The college honors
program is for students who have completed 60
credit hours or more and have a 3.5 overall GPA
or higher. This program encourages high-
achieving students to strengthen their education
and to market themselves as students who have
gone beyond the regular requirements of the
major.
The honors program is designed to build
upon existing courses in the required curriculum.
Courses on the transcript are identified with an
honors designation.
All participants must complete the Honors
Colloquium, a college-wide course that satisfies
the writing component currently required by the
college (AEE 3033, ENC 2210, ENC 3250, ENC
3310, ENC 3312 or MMC 2100). The Honors Col-
loquium is offered in the fall and summer.
In addition, two courses approved in the stu-
dent's major must carry an honors designation.
These courses may be existing honors courses or
they may be regular courses coupled with an
honors contract. With the approval of the honors
program coordinator, graduate level courses also
may qualify as honors courses.
Students in the program who have the neces-
sary grade point average and a desire to graduate
with high or highest honors must complete a
research project or creative work. Honors proj-
ects encompass teaching, research and extension
activities and can include any creative activity
that has an objective and an expected outcome.
Students who are not in the honors program
still can graduate with high or highest honors as
outlined under the Graduating with Honors sec-
tion below. For additional information, contact
Dr. D. A. Comer.


Graduating with Honors: To graduate with hon-
ors, a student must have a UF grade point aver-
age of 3.5 or above on all courses taken at the
university after earning 60 credits.
To graduate with high or highest honors, the
grade point average required is 3.75 and 3.85,
respectively. In addition, each academic unit
requires an approved research project or creative
work. Students seeking high or highest honors
should consult their 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 satisfy general educa-
tion requirements have been listed in the appro-
priate category. In some cases, the listed courses
are not sufficient to complete the general educa-
tion requirement and the student must take an-
other course. The courses listed represent the
most expedient way to fulfill graduation require-
ments; however, the student may satisfy the re-
quirements with alternative course sequences.
Students may take the CHM 2040-2041
chemistry sequence or an honors chemistry
course in lieu of CHM 2045. For the calculus
requirement, students may take either MAC 1147,
Pre-Calculus, or MAC 1140 and MAC 1114 before
enrolling in calculus or they may take a higher-
level calculus course.
The college requires all students to complete
an oral and written communication requirement
above the general requirement. In majors where
an equivalency is permitted, students should see
their advisers for approved alternative courses.
When majors list specific courses, students must
select from those courses.
Critical Tracking Criteria
The courses in bold in the semester plans
identify the critical tracking criteria for the major.
These courses determine whether or not students
are on or off track. All critical tracking courses
must be completed by the end of the first four
semesters.
Students who do not complete the appropri-
ate number of tracking courses each semester will
have a hold placed on their record preventing
advance registration until they have met with an
adviser and have agreed to enroll in appropriate
tracking courses the following semester.

Agricultural and Biological
Engineering
The agricultural and biological engineering
curriculum is offered cooperatively by the col-
leges of Agriculture and Engineering.
Students in this major receive basic training in
engineering and agriculture to solve the special-
ized engineering problems of agricultural produc-
tion and processing systems and the management
and conservation of agricultural land and water
resources.
Since engineering problems in agriculture re-
late to biological production and processing of


__ __ __








AGRICULTURE


biological products, training in agriculture and
biology courses are required.
Students will register in the College of Engi-
neering and will receive the Bachelor of Science
in Engineering (Agricultural and Biological Engi-
neering). Refer to that college for curriculum.

Agricultural Education and
Communication
This major prepares students for careers in
agricultural education, agricultural communica-
tion and leadership as well as training positions
in agricultural, extension, community and gov-
ernment agencies. Three specializations are of-
fered: teaching, agricultural communication and
agricultural leadership education. Each requires a
common core of courses in technical agriculture
and pre-professional education. Department
advisers will help students select electives.

AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION
SPECIALIZATION
The education specialization provides the ba-
sic courses for agricultural education teacher
certification in Florida. The graduate must apply
to the Florida Department of Education for certifi-
cation and a full-time Florida teaching certificate.

cants are NOT guaranteed assignment to their
home county or to a given center. An application
is an agreement to accept assignment where the
internship can best be achieved. Failure to accept
an assignment relieves the department of any
further responsibility.

Agricultural Operations
Management
The AOM program incorporates today's
emerging technology with business principles to
improve agricultural production, processing,
manufacturing, technical sales, food safety,
worker safety, and the environment.
Technical courses provide experience in con-
struction, structures, power systems, food proc-
essing, computer technology, machinery, electric
circuits and controls, environmental quality,
safety, irrigation, water control and agricultural
systems management. Students also receive
training in economics, accounting, business, fi-
nance, salesmanship, business management,
technical writing and public speaking. Electives


allow students to select courses providing greater
expertise in their specific areas.
Five specializations are available: production
management, manufacturing and process man-
agement, technical sales and product support,
biological systems management and environ-
mental systems management. Consult a depart-
ment adviser for guidance.

Combined B.S. and M. S. Program
The department offers a combined B.S. and
M.S. degree program. Qualified students earn
both a bachelor's and a master's degree with a
savings of one semester. They can begin their
master's program while seniors and dual count
up to 12 hours of graduate courses for both
bachelor's and master's degree requirements.
Seniors admitted to a combined program are
eligible for a teaching or research assistantship.
Admission requirements include satisfaction of
Graduate School admission requirements for the
master's degree, a junior/senior level GPA of 3.30
or higher, completion of all course work required
in first two years and completion of 75 hours of
AOM requirements.

BIOLOGY EDUCATION PROGRAM
Students who plan to teach biology in second-
ary education programs may major in botany and
should see the undergraduate coordinator.
Graduating with Honors in Botany: A stu-
dent must have a minimum grade point
average of 3.5 in 3-4000 level courses. High or
highest honors requires a minimum grade point
average of 3.75 and 3.85, respectively, enrollment
in BOT 4905 for one or two semesters, respec-
tively, and a thesis based upon independent re-
search. Students carry out the research under the
direction of a botany faculty memberss.
The thesis is submitted to and approved by
the student's research adviser and the dean's
office. The undergraduate coordinator and the
dean's office must approve honors work before
registering for BOT 4905.

Dairy Science (see Animal Sciences)
Students desiring employment in the dairy
industry should major in animal sciences with the
dairy option of the industry specialization. Con-
sult an adviser in the Department of Dairy and
Poultry Sciences for required courses and appro-
priate electives.

Entomology and Nematology
Entomology and nematology are biological
sciences dealing with insects, mites, ticks, spiders
and nematodes. The Department of Entomology
and Nematology offers this major and partici-
pates in the plant protection specialization of the
plant sciences major offered in conjunction with
the Department of Agronomy and the Depart-
ment of Plant Pathology. The three specializa-
tions are basic science/pre-professional, biology
education and urban pest management. Inter-
ested students should contact the undergraduate
adviser.

PRE-PROFESSIONAL AND BASIC SCIENCES
SPECIALIZATION
This specialization offers a strong background
in the basic sciences. A minimum 2.5 GPA is
required in science and math courses. There are

Students should see an adviser for approved
specialization electives.

Microbiology and Cell Science
The curriculum develops fundamental knowl-
edge of bacteria, plant and animal cells and vi-
ruses. It provides a background for graduate
work in microbiology, cell biology or biochemis-
try as well as other areas of agricultural sciences.
It also provides a background for work in gov-
ernment and industry research or diagnostic
laboratories. The curriculum also provides a
background for entry to dentistry, medicine and
veterinary medicine programs.
Graduating With Honors: To qualify for
graduation with honors, high honors or highest
honors, a student must have a junior/senior level
grade point average of 3.50, 3.75 and 3.85, respec-
tively. (For purposes of honors, UF junior/senior
level courses are defined as all courses taken at
UF after the student has earned three AG credits,
wherever taken.)
In addition to a GPA requirement, a candidate
for high 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 5303L,
MCB 5505, MCB 5458 or PCB 5136L.
A thesis that describes the results of research
must be written in scientific style and submitted
to the faculty research supervisor and the under-
graduate coordinator the last week of the semes-
ter. For students who are candidates for high or
highest honors in the college, a copy of the thesis
must be submitted to the college office in 2002
McCarty Hall at least three days before gradua-
tion. The final decision on the honor distinction is
determined by performance in MCB 4905 and an
evaluation of the quality of the thesis.
A faculty member in the department or ap-
proved faculty outside the department will su-
pervise the research. The research will be


microbiology or cell biology in nature. A one-
page proposal must be submitted to the under-
graduate coordinator for approval before regis-
tering for MCB 4905 and initiating the research
project.

professional disciplines that include architecture,
building construction, interior design and land-
scape architecture. Graduate programs at both the
Masters and Ph.D. level are available in all five of
our academic units.
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 (architec-
ture, landscape architecture and interior design).
Research and service projects conducted through
the research centers and institutes often entail
multidisciplinary, cross-campus student input
and effort.
The Architecture and Fine Arts Library and
the Visual Resources Center are the largest collec-
tions of their kind in the Southeast. Together they
provide books, government documents, Ameri-
can and foreign periodicals, subject files, micro-
text, slides, photographs, reproductions and other
materials. The AFA Library also maintains its
own Rare Book Collection for scholarly research.
Services include a professional reference service
ready to assist in guidance and information
searches. Students may use additional 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 celebrated
over fifty years of service to the citizens of
Florida.
Students considering application to the Col-
lege of Architecture should anticipate as part of
their budget planning expenditures for comput-
ers, travel, equipment and tools essential to their
education as design, planning or construction
professionals. For further information contact the
appropriate department/school.

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 sequential for-
eign language courses in secondary school or 8-10
credits at the postsecondary level (or documented
an equivalent level of proficiency). Admission at
the junior/senior level is open to applicants who
have completed all general education and pre-
professional course work and qualify for enroll-
ment into third-year professional course work.
Conditional admission is open to applicants
who have accumulated 60 credits of college-level
course work and met the admissions criteria, yet
still need to complete first-year and second-year
pre-professional courses. Generally, transfer stu-
dents with an A.A. degree and CLAST or stu-
dents from other universities that do not offer
approved pre-professional programs or courses
required at the University of Florida are consid-
ered for conditional admission into the junior
year. These students may require as many as four
semesters at the university to complete pre-
professional requirements because of the sequen-
tial nature of the courses.
Each department/school may include any or
all of the following criteria for admissions review:
* Quality of work completed, overall GPA and
pre-professional GPA.
* Achievements in pre-professional courses
and/or courses related to the chosen plan of
study.
* Portfolio review or pin-up (design students).

Admission Protocols for Native UF Students
Freshmen at the university are admitted di-
rectly to the College of Architecture. The college
will monitor the progress of all students. Students
who fall below the critical tracking criteria for the
degree program will have a hold placed on their
records and they must see an adviser in the
college/academic unit before they can advance
register and continue in the program. They also
may be referred to the Academic Advising Center
to seek admission to another college.

Admission Protocols for Transfer Students
Transfer students who will receive their Asso-
ciation of Arts degree from a Florida public insti-
tution must meet or exceed the 60-hour admission
protocols for admission to the college. The admis-
sion 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








COLLEGES


the two-year pre-professional programs at Uni-
versity of Florida, Miami-Dade, Broward,
St. Petersburg (Clearwater) and Hillsborough
community colleges are eligible for consideration
for third-year admission. Applications for transfer
from one of the approved pre-professional pro-
grams must be filed by the deadline. Transfer
students with conditional admission status (3AR
or above) must also notify the department. All
transfer students must have a minimum overall
pre-professional architectural GPA of 2.00.
Interior Design: Transfer students must con-
sult the program adviser. Students in the pre-
design programs at Miami-Dade, Broward, St.
Petersburg and Hillsborough community colleges
must contact the department for the pre-
professional courses not available at those
colleges.
Students who must complete pre-professional
requirements should apply to the summer term
for the architectural design, building arts and
architectural history sequences. The remaining
pre-professional courses may be completed dur-
ing the next academic year. Students accepted for
the sequence are admitted conditionally and their
records shall be reviewed during the next spring
term for entry to the professional courses in the
junior year.
Students are admitted selectively to the pro-
fessional program on the basis of portfolio re-
view, overall grade point average, interview and
letter of application. Notification of the admission
decision will be made before the end of the spring
semester for the junior class that begins that fall.
Contact the department for current information.
Landscape Architecture: Transfer and post-
baccalaureate students must contact the depart-
ment to determine admission timing and eligibil-
ity. All students must complete the general edu-
cation and pre-professional course work before
admission to professional studies. Criteria for
admission include review of design performance,
transcript, letter and interview.
Building Construction: Refer to the M.E.
Rinker Sr. School of Building Construction section
of this catalog.

Application Deadlines
The programs in architecture, interior design
and landscape architecture will admit students
for third-year professional course work only in
the fall. Students who need to complete some or
all of the pre-professional requirements shall be
reviewed for the fall, spring or summer semes-
ters. The Office of the University Registrar (for
transfer students) or the dean's office must re-
ceive applications and all required credentials (for
UF students) as follows:
* Architecture February 19
* Interior Design- March 1
* Landscape Architecture May 7

are listed 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 Con-
struction will admit students for third-year pro-


fessional course work in the fall and spring se-
mesters. Refer to the Building Construction sec-
tion for application deadlines.
Academic Advising
Freshman and sophomore advising begins in
the dean's office and is handled by Associate
Dean Anthony J. Dasta. Transfer students and
those students classified 3AR and above are to
report to their department:
* Architecture, 231 ARCH
* Building Construction, FAC 106
* Interior Design, 340 ARCH
* Landscape Architecture, 334 ARCH
* Urban and Regional Planning, 431 ARCH.

College Regulations
Maximum and Minimum Loads: A normal load
is 14-16 credits a semester. A student may be
permitted to register for more than 17 hours
when the adviser feels the student's record justi-
fies it.
The minimum is twelve credit hours for full-
time status; students who wish to take fewer
credits should be aware that certain university
privileges and benefits require full-time status. It
is the student's responsibility to verify the mini-
mum academic load necessary.
Students who seek an adjustment to their aca-
demic load may petition the dean through the
director of student services and the appropriate
department chair.
While the pre-professional and professional
course sequence must be maintained, variation 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 should plan their curricula well in ad-
vance, so that course sequence and credit-hour
loads will accommodate the most effective aca-
demic 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 before
graduation by attending one or more summer
terms at a state university. The college can grant a
waiver of this requirement for health, academic,
financial or personal reasons. Written documenta-
tion is required to support the petition.
Dean's List: Undergraduate students who
complete a minimum of 12 credits in a semester
with a grade point average of 3.7 or better will
earn a position on the Dean's List. Students with
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 col-
lege. Courses taken while enrolled in another
college do not apply to the College of Architec-
ture average.


Students planning to enter the Graduate
School must maintain a 3.0 average in the junior
and senior years.
Graduation With Honors: The faculty rec-
ommends students for graduation with honors,
high honors or highest honors based on grade
point average, distribution and quality of course
work, faculty and other pertinent qualities of his
or her work. Students must earn a minimum
academic average as established by the depart-
ment or school. For high or highest honors, a
thesis, research project or other creative work also
is required.
Architecture: Honors designations are calcu-
.lated on all courses in the professional curriculum
resulting in the following GPAs: honors 3.3, high
honors 3.6 and highest honors 3.65. For high and
highest honors, a final fourth-year design project
is required.
Interior Design: Honors designations are cal-
culated 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. For high and highest honors, a fourth-year
design project is required.
Landscape Architecture: Honor designations
are calculated on all courses in the professional
curriculum resulting in the following GPAs: hon-
ors 3.2, high honors 3.5 and highest honors 3.75.
For high and highest honors, a final fourth-year
design project is required.
Student Work: The college can retain student
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.
Practical Experience: Before graduating, stu-
dents should get some experience in the employ-
ment of practicing professionals in their field or in
some allied professional practice. Such employ-
ment provides an introduction to the methods of
actual practice and enables the student to derive
increased benefit from advanced work in school.
Students should contact their adviser for recom-
mended or required practical experience.
Field Trips: Each year there are field trips to
give students an opportunity to broaden and
expand their educational experience through
study of planning, design and construction proj-
ects. Students frequently combine such studies
with attendance at state and national professional
meetings.
Students should plan to have adequate funds
available for field trips, equipment and tools
essential to their education as design, planning or
construction professionals. These expenses also
include a week-long field trip that is required of
all junior and senior level architecture, interior
design and landscape architecture students.
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 operational competence is an
essential component of the contemporary profes-
sional environment. Appropriate computer skills
now are required for all entry-level opportunities
in each professional discipline within the college.
Course content increasingly relies on com-
puter skills and personal access to computers
with the proper software.
All students entering third-year professional
programs and entering graduate programs within
the college must purchase, lease or otherwise
obtain continuing access to a personal computer.
Each academic unit within the college will main-
tain information concerning computer hardware
and software requirements, as appropriate to the
discipline and curriculum.

Architecture
Robert S. McCarter, Chair
Successful completion of the undergraduate
curriculum results in the Bachelor of Design (Ar-
chitecture), a pre-professional degree and the first
step toward professional registration as an archi-
tect. The professional program in architecture
leads to the Master of Architecture. Students
without a baccalaureate degree are required to
take undergraduate and graduate courses for the
professional architecture program.
Admission to the graduate program is selec-
tive; please refer to the Graduate Catalog. Bache-
lor of Design graduates are employed in private
practice, corporate offices and government agen-
cies. Internship in the profession is a required and
is 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 a fall or
spring semester abroad. Supplemental fees are
required for participation in this program. Sum-
mer 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 is avail-
able in the department office.

NAAB Statement
Most states require architects to hold an ac-
credited degree. There are two types of degrees
accredited by the National Architectural Accred-
iting Board: The Bachelor of Architecture and the
Master of Architecture. Both degrees are struc-
tured for registration and licensure. The four-year
pre-professional degree is not accredited by the
NAAB. The pre-professional degree is useful to
those wishing a foundation in the field of archi-
tecture, as preparation for continued education in
a professional degree program or for employment
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. Available
classroom space, studio space and faculty limit
the number of applicants accepted.
The admission process is based on three crite-
ria: pre-professional grade point average, archi-
tectural grade point average and an evaluation of
each student's studio work (1-10 scale). For the
past several years, the average for admission has
been an overall GPA of 3.1, an architectural GPA
of 3.4 and an exhibit score of 5.5.
Students must have successfully completed all
pre-professional requirements to be guaranteed
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 pre-professional
requirements, and passed the College Level Aca-
demic Skills Test (CLAST).
Students with an overall GPA below 2.5, an
architectural GPA below 2.75 or a pin-up exhibit
score below 3.0 are not guaranteed admission. A
student's overall and architectural GPA must be
at least 2.0 or better for admission to the third
year. The department admits only the best-
qualified applicants as evidenced by their aca-
demic achievement and their potential to com-
plete 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 essential
first step toward professional registration in
Florida, other states and the Canadian provinces
regulating the title or practice of interior design.
The design process is studied and applied
creatively to resolve problems of interior envi-
ronments. The curriculum equips students with
knowledge of design techniques, materials, re-
sources and an awareness of the interrelated
professional responsibilities of design.
Field trips are required in the junior and sen-
ior years. Students should plan to have adequate
funds for field trips and design studio project
materials. Internships are recommended in the
summer between the junior and senior years.
Interior design career opportunities are nu-
merous because businesses, corporations, com-
munity organizations and government agencies
demand professional design services. Graduates
of this program usually assume positions in inte-
rior design offices and architectural firms.
51 credits, including electives, must be taken
at the 3000-level or above.
This program is limited access. Entering stu-
dents must consult the department adviser. All
students (postbaccalaureate, junior college trans-
fers and UF students) must apply for admission
to the professional program, which is limited
because of space limitations.

Landscape Architecture
R. Terry Schnadelbach, Chair
This program is changing. The new 5-year
landscape architecture program is scheduled for
implementation Fall 1999. Consult an adviser
for information and curriculum changes.
The Bachelor of Landscape Architecture pro-
gram is accredited by the Landscape Architectural
Accreditation Board and leads to the Bachelor of
Landscape Architecture. Graduating from an
accredited program is an essential first step to-
ward licensing in Florida and other states. Stu-
dents study the art of design, planning or man-
agement, and the arrangement of natural and
man-made elements on the land through applica-
tion of cultural and scientific knowledge. Re-
source conservation and the requirements of the
built environment are studied.
Graduates are employed by professional of-
fices; municipal, state or federal recreation; land-
scape architectural or planning agencies; and the
construction, development or horticultural indus-
tries. Graduates also may continue on to graduate
school, at UF or throughout the country.
The Department of Landscape Architecture
requires 89 credit hours, including electives, must
be taken at the 3000-level or above.
Field trips are required as part of normal
course work; two trips are required. A summer
internship under a registered landscape architect
also is required and domestic or foreign study
opportunities are available. Students should have
adequate funds for trips and studio materials.

ety is a source of required blueprints for construc-
tion course work. The society also provides a
computerized job search file and tutoring for
building construction students and performs
volunteer work for the community.
American Association of Cost Engineers, In-
ternational: The American Association of Cost
Engineers is a nonprofit professional association
of cost engineers, cost estimators, project manag-
ers, planners, schedulers and other professionals
engaged in work related to construction business
costs and profits. The school has a student chap-
ter sponsored by the Mid-Florida chapter in Or-
lando. Through the student chapter, building
construction students may begin to develop pro-
fessional careers. Student memberships may be
enhanced later through the ACCE certification
program for recognition as a certified cost engi-
neer (CCE) or certified cost consultant (CCC).
Both are internationally recognized certifications.
Student Contractors and Builders Associa-
tion (SCBA): This is the student chapter of the
Associated General Contractors of America


(AGC) and the National Association of Home
Builders (NAHB). SCBA increases knowledge of
the construction industry, promotes fellowship
and professionalism and provides service to the
school, the university and the community. Mem-
bership is open to all building construction stu-
dents. SCBA activities include community service
projects, guest speakers, social gatherings and
attendance at the AGC and NAHB National
Conventions.
Student Chapter, Associated Builders and
Contractors (ABC): The student chapter of ABC
increases student knowledge of the construction
industry, promotes fellowship and professional-
ism and provides service to the school, the uni-
versity and the community. Membership is open
to all construction-related majors.
ABC's chief purpose is to create a work cli-
mate where independent and union firms can
work together in harmony. An important goal is
to the promotion of the merit shop philosophy
and the right to choose between independent and
union work environments.
Chapter functions include sponsoring guest
speakers at each meeting and sending representa-
tives to both state and national ABC conventions.
Other chapter activities include attending
monthly Gulf Coast chapter meetings, fund rais-
ers, assisting in homecoming activities and or-
ganizing social gatherings.
National Association of Minority Contrac-
tors (NAMC): The student chapter of NAMC
helps recruit and retain minority and female
students, and promotes fellowship, equality and
professionalism among all students. Membership
is open to all building construction students. One
of the most important goals of NAMC is aca-
demic improvement. NAMC provides tutors and
incentives to motivate students to excel in con-
struction education.
Construction Management Association of
America (CMAA): CMAA is the only construc-
tion association devoted to promoting profes-
sional construction management and is open to
all students. The student chapter sponsors guest
speakers, social gatherings, presentation of papers
at regional and national meetings and assists in
the annual M.E. Rinker Sr. Distinguished Lecture
on Construction Management. CMAA has 200
corporate members who specialize in construction
management and 1,000 individual members who
are construction managers.
American Institute of Constructors (AIC):
The student chapter is the entry level into the
professional AIC. AIC promotes professionalism
through education, communication within the
profession and establishment of ethical codes and
rules of professional conduct. The student chapter
promotes these ideals through service to the
school, university and the community. Member-
ship is open to all building construction students.
Individual membership in the student chapter of
AIC may be transferred to an associate profes-
sional membership after graduation. The chapter
takes monthly trips to the Orlando and Tampa


meetings and participate as a full member in the
programs.
Christians in Construction: CIC provides a
means for students to strengthen their relation-
ships with God and helps them prepare to honor
God in their construction careers.
CIC hosts guest speakers who are Christian
business people from the construction industry,
including contractors, architects, engineers and
attorneys. CIC also engages in construction proj-
ect field trips and participates in philanthropic
events.

Computer Requirement
Personal computer design and graphic and
operational competence is an essential component
of the professional environment. Computer skills
now are required for most entry-level opportuni-
ties in construction. Competency in the basic use
of a computer is a requirement for graduation.
Course content increasingly relies on student
computer skills and access to computers. Aca-
demic advising and registration can be done by
computer and official university correspondence
is often sent via e-mail. The demands on univer-
sity computer facilities are significant.
Students entering the junior year of profes-
sional course work are required to purchase, lease
or otherwise obtain continuing access to a per-
sonal computer that is capable of dial-up or net-
work connection to the Internet, graphical access
to the World Wide Web, and productivity func-
tions such as word processing and spreadsheet
calculation.
Information concerning computer hardware
and software is available on the university's web
page at http://www.ufl.edu or from CIRCA at
http://www.circa.ufl.edu/computers, which has a
link to the school's web page.

Programs of Study
Building Construction

Major: Building Construction
Degree Awarded: B.S.B.C.
Minor: No
Total Credits Required: 126

The Bachelor of Science in Building Construc-
tion is a four-year program for students interested
in careers in construction management, tech-
niques, operations and related areas in the con-
struction industry. The degree draws upon skills
in communication and interpersonal relations,
rather than architectural and engineering design.
The freshman and sophomore programs of
study are designed to provide easy transfer for
junior and community college graduates. Pro-
spective transfer students should consult their
advisers or write to the School of Building Con-
struction for a pre-building construction program
of local study.









Opportunities for advancement and increas-
ing responsibility exist in all areas of the construc-
tion industry, including land development, home
building, public building and industrialized
building systems; commercial, industrial, marine
and heavy construction; underwater and space-
age facilities; materials and equipment sales and
installations; and construction product research,
development, sales and applications.
Courses also are offered leading to the Master
of Building Construction or Master of Science in
Building Construction. The normal graduate
enrollment is 55. The College of Architecture
began offering a Ph.D. program in 1988. For re-
quirements for these degrees and admission to
graduate school, consult the Graduate Catalog.
Students planning to enter the Graduate
School should maintain a 3.0 (B) average in junior
and senior level work.

Warrington College of

Business Administration
www.cba.ufl.edu/upo
The Warrington College of Business Adminis-
tration is named in honor of Alfred C. Warrington
IV. A 1958 University of Florida graduate with a
BSBA in accounting, Mr. Warrington is the
founding chairman and former Co-CEO of Sani-
fill, Inc. His 1996 gift will total $11 million and
will allow business faculty to help students meet
the changing needs of the 21st century.
The business world is changing and the War-
rington College of Business Administration is
changing with it. Programs are continually
evaluated for their relevance to changing condi-
tions in the state, the nation and the world. There
is new emphasis on people skills-the ability to
communicate and work well with others-and
on globalization, business ethics and cultural
diversity.
Since the College of Business Administration
was founded in 1926-27, more than 30,000 stu-
dents have earned business or accounting degrees
-a national and international network providing
information, advice and encouragement to to-
day's students. There are now three undergradu-
ate degree programs offered by the college: a
Bachelor of Science in Accounting (BSAc) from
the Fisher School of Accounting; a Bachelor of
Science in Business Administration (BSBA) with a
major in computer and information sciences,
decision and information sciences, economics,
finance, insurance, management or marketing;
and a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration
(BABA) with an outside area of specialization in
any one of 80 different fields.
The college's educational objectives provide a
broad formal instructional foundation for respon-
sible participation in business, the professions
and government; they stimulate interest in social,
economic and civic responsibilities; they develop
competence in making business decisions and in
evaluating policy; they offer areas of specializa-
tion for students wishing to pursue the more
traditional business majors; and they encourage
the intellectual inquiry of all students.
To meet these objectives, the college's under-
graduate degree programs are based on a broad
foundation of study outside of the college that
includes the university's' general education,
communication and computation requirements.
This educational foundation helps to prepare
students for the college's pre-professional and
business core requirements, which cover the
functional areas of business. Finally, students
must select an area of specialization, either
through a major within the college (BSAc and
BSBA degrees) or an approved area of study out-
side of the college (BABA degree).

The Faculty
The distinguished credentials of the faculty of
the Warrington College of Business Administra-


tion and the Fisher School of Accounting are
recognized both within and outside the univer-
sity, the state and the nation.
When the state instituted its Eminent Scholar
program for academic chairs, the Warrington
College of Business Administration was the first
unit in the State University System to acquire
such a chair. Now, 11 of the 54 endowed Eminent
Scholar Chairs at the university are in business or
accounting.
The faculty also includes four university-
appointed graduate research professors, four
distinguished service professors and 25 named
professorships endowed by businesses. The War-
rington College and the'Fisher School faculties
include past presidents of the national American
Accounting Association and the Econometrics
Society and two past presidents of the national
Association for Consumer Research.
College faculty have served as editors of ma-
jor national scholarly journals in marketing, ac-
counting, finance, business law and management,
and in many associate editor or editorial board
positions. National award winners among the
faculty include those honored for research or
teaching in real estate, marketing, management,
economics, accounting and insurance.
The Fisher School and every department of
the college ranks fifteenth or higher nationally for
published research. In addition, the faculty from
every department within the college and the
Fisher School have been recognized by the un-
dergraduate students, their departments and the
college for their excellence in teaching, and many
*have even been selected for university-wide
teaching awards.
Faculty also head the college's fourteen re-
search centers, including the Bureau of Economic
and Business Research that provides official
population estimates and projections used by the
state for revenue sharing, planning and other
purposes.

Facilities
The Warrington College of Business Adminis-
tration and Fisher School of Accounting are
housed in three buildings informally known as
the Business Triangle-Stuzin Hall, historic Bryan
Hall and Matherly Hall.
The college's media center is located in Bryan
Hall. The studio facilities (130 BRY) allow for the
advanced taping and broadcasting of those se-
lected pre-professional and core courses that are
taught live and then televised by replay. It is this
advanced technology that allows the college to
serve such a large number of students while
maintaining adequate resources to keep junior/
senior level classes at a reasonable size for a
greater degree of student/faculty interaction. The
media center is also responsible for operating a
modern video-replay facility, where students can
view tapes of the prior week's classes at their
leisure.
Students can access the university's main-
frame computer at the Northeast Regional Data


Center (NERDC) through the college's computer
lab, which is run by the university's Center for
Instructional and Research Computing Activities
(CIRCA). The college also maintains a separate
graduate computer center for instructional and
research purposes.

National and Regional Associations
The Warrington College of Business Adminis-
tration is an accredited member of the American
Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business, the
Southern Economic Association, the Southern
Business Administrative Association and the
National Retail Merchants' Association. The bac-
calaureate and master's programs in business and
accounting are accredited by the American As-
sembly of Collegiate Schools of Business.

Career Planning
Special days and events for business and ac-
counting students are designated at the univer-
sity's fall and spring Career Expo, which attracts
several hundred corporations, government agen-
cies and public accounting firms to campus to
meet and recruit potential employees. There is
also an Internship Expo for students interested in
internship opportunities.
The Warrington College and its faculty main-
tain permanent ties with companies through their
executives who serve on advisory councils to the
college, the Fisher School of Accounting and
various research centers. These executives visit
classrooms as guest speakers and their companies
often provide financial support.

Beta Gamma Sigma
Election to this national honorary society, the
business equivalent to Phi Beta Kappa in the field
of liberal arts and sciences, is based on scholar-
ship and character. For information, contact the
Undergraduate Programs Office in 100 Stuzin
Hall.

Organizations and Activities
The college encourages students to participate
in extracurricular activities to enhance their edu-
cational experience, foster professional networks
and develop communication and social skills.
Committee service within the organizations also
develops leadership skills.
Students may join chapters of the American
Marketing Association, the Undergraduate Eco-
nomics Society, the DIS Society, ASTRA and the
student investment club.
The business fraternities Alpha Kappa Psi and
Delta Sigma Pi offer opportunities for business
and accounting students to participate in com-
munity service and social interaction.
In addition, students may join the Minority
Business Society, the Hispanic Student Business
Association, the Portfolio Management Associa-
tion or the Business Administration College
Council (BACC), the college's student govern-
ment organization.







COLLEGES


The Fisher School of Accounting has three
student organizations Beta Alpha Psi, the na-
tional accounting honorary; the Fisher School of
Accounting Council, a student government or-
ganization; and the Florida Accounting Associa-
tion, a social organization. Many accounting stu-
dents also are members of business fraternities
and Beta Gamma Sigma.
Many business and accounting groups invite
guest speakers to discuss careers, interviewing,
resume writing and other relevant topics. Organi-
zations offer students opportunities not always
available in the classroom, opportunities for
closer interaction with faculty, business execu-
tives and their peers.

International Programs
The Warrington College of Business Adminis-
tration believes that knowledge of the global
marketplace is vital for managers who will lead
American corporations into the next century. An
excellent way to obtain such knowledge is to
study abroad for a semester or a full academic
year.
The college has established exchange agree-
ments with numerous foreign universities that
allow UF students to count the credits earned
abroad as part of their UF degree. Programs in-
clude the Helsinki School of Economics and Busi-
ness Administration in Mikkeli, Finland; the
Norwegian School of Management in Oslo; the
Haarlem Business School in Haarlem, the Neth-
erlands; the MBAI in Paris; University of Man-
chester Institute of Science and Technology;
Denmark's International Study Program in Co-
penhagen; and Luigi Bocconi University in Milan,
Italy. In addition, students fluent in German may
study at Leopold Franzens University in Inns-
bruck, Austria, and students may learn commer-
cial French at EM Lyon in Lyon, France.
Summer programs also are available at the
Finnish and Danish schools. There is a summer
study tour that includes London, Paris, Brussels,
Berlin, Warsaw and Prague. Internships in Eng-
land are available through Richmond College in
London. Finally, the Warrington College of Busi-
ness Administration is a member of several inter-
national consortia that expand even more the
range of opportunities for foreign study. The
possibilities for informal arrangements for trans-
ferable overseas study are virtually unlimited.
Participants in approved programs can
receive financial aid as if they were studying in
Gainesville. Summer courses taken abroad count
as their summer study obligation, and with care-
ful planning and prior approval, count as part of
their major or business core requirements.
Further information about international study
opportunities is available from the Undergradu-
ate Programs Office in 100 Stuzin Hall.

Admission Requirements

Students should carefully plan their program
of study and their schedule of courses. Students
applying for admission into a degree program or
a minor are expected to complete all requirements
within 120 credit hours.

Academic Advising
The Warrington College of Business Adminis-
tration's Undergraduate Programs Office is lo-
cated in Stuzin Hall. This office is responsible for
advising students in the undergraduate programs
available through the college, including the
Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration
(BABA) and the Bachelor of Science in Business
Administration (BSBA).

Transfer Admission Requirements
Transfer students will be admitted to the col-
lege for the fall, spring and summer A/C terms,
provided they have an Associate of Arts degree
from a Florida public institution and meet or
exceed the 60-hour standards for their declared
degree program. Application deadlines are
strictly enforced (see the university calendar in
this catalog).
Transfer students who do not have a com-
pleted application on file, including all required
documentation, transcripts, etc., will not be con-
sidered for admission and must apply to a subse-
quent term.
Admission requirements can and do vary
among the business and accounting programs at
the ten universities of the state university system.
To ensure that they have met all prerequisite
course eligibility requirements, transfer students
from Florida community colleges should com-
plete the following courses, hereafter referred to
as pre-professional courses, as part of their Asso-
ciate of Arts degree: ACG 2021C, ACG 2071, ECO
2013, ECO 2023, MAC 2233, STA 2023, CGS 2531
(or an approved equivalent or demonstrated
computer literacy). Completion of these courses
satisfies prerequisite course requirements for all


business and accounting programs and ensures
further consideration for admission.

Pre-professional Requirements
Pre-professional courses may not be taken by
correspondence or S-U option. Students who wish
to use a course from another institution should
first consult the Undergraduate Programs Office
to determine whether the course has been ap-
proved for equivalency.
Students can satisfy the prerequisite for MAC
2233, Survey of Calculus I, in one of two ways:
Take MAC 1147 and earn a C grade, or
Take the SAT II math level II-C subject test
and earn the appropriate score. (Refer to the
SAT II information in the Academic Advis-
ing section of this catalog.)

Postbaccalaureate Students
Application procedures for postbaccalaureate
status are the same for all students regardless of
where they received their undergraduate degree,
except that former University of Florida students
must apply for readmission, while non-University
of Florida students apply for admission.
Application forms are available from the Of-
fice of Admissions in Criser Hall. Depending on
resource and enrollment constraints, students
who have received a baccalaureate degree may be
admitted for the following purposes:
1) Students who have not received a BSAc,
BSBA or BABA degree may be admitted
only if they wish to receive a BSBA or BABA
degree.
2) Students who have received their BSBA or
BABA degree from the University of Florida
and who are not applying for graduate pro-
grams within the college may be admitted to
complete courses for informational purposes
only (a maximum of one term).
3) Any student applying for a graduate pro-
gram within the college may, at the discre-
tion of the graduate program, be admitted to
take courses in preparation for admission to
the graduate program.
