UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA
OFFICE OF CAMPUS ENGINEER
A HISTORY OF EXCELLENCE
In A Second Century of Progress
Pacing the future on the strength of the past, the Uni-
versity of Florida traces its founding to the days prior to
Florida's admission to the Union in 1845, although its first
college-the College of Arts and Sciences-did not open
until 1853. A few years later, the passage of the Morrill Act
provided land for state institutions of higher learning which
would promote agriculture, mechanical arts and military
science, resulting in the beginnings of the College of Agri-
culture, the College of Engineering and the Agricultural
Now in its second century as a land-grant university,
Florida today is recognized as a leader in higher education,
providing priceless opportunity for a student body rapidly
reaching a 25,000 enrollment. Its faculty has received note-
worthy attention for significant contributions in specialized
fields and its mighty research arm spans the world. Its
alumni have distinguished themselves in varied professions.
They range from the scientist who cracked the genetic code
to the youngest board member of the National Association
The University of Florida is made up of 14 colleges
and two schools and offers programs ranging from general .
to highly specialized education.
The 2,000 acre main campus at Gainesville, often ,J" -
designated among the most beautiful in the country, con-
tains more than 600 buildings which blend Gothic and
modern architecture. The University also includes over .''
14,000 acres off the main campus, with specialized experi- .
ment stations scattered throughout the state.
From an original enrollment of 136 students gathered
in a single frame building, the University of Florida has be-
come a giant among universities where the professional
skills represented in the various departments often are
combined in interdisciplinary work which enlarges man-
kind's store of knowledge.
Today's careers call for specialized training and a
college education is rapidly becoming a requirement for a
growing number of occupations. At the University of Florida
a student can prepare himself for a career in any of the
major areas listed below. Special programs suited to in-
dividual needs and purposes may be arranged, especially
on the graduate or professional level.

The First Two Years Devoted To Understanding The World Around Us
When a freshman enters the University of Florida, he
is enrolled in the University College, recently described as
"one of the two or three leading two-year general education
programs in America."
Comprehensive courses offered by the college are
aimed toward improving communication skills, acquaint-
ing the student with the principal concepts in the biological
and physical sciences and providing a knowledge of the
history and culture of Western man. Such a broad back-
ground enables students to make a wise choice of an upper
division school or college.
The basic comprehensive courses are:
-American Institutions (their developmental history,
problems and processes-social, political and
-The Physical Sciences (the nature of the physical
-Comprehensive English (freshman English, language
-The Humanities (literature, philosophy, religion and
-The Biological Sciences (the life sciences)
A variety of counseling services is available to help
the student achieve maximum educational development.
Every student sees an academic advisor each time he
registers. The Reading Laboratory and Clinic provides
diagnostic testing and remedial exercises for those whose
verbal skills are inadequate. A staff of experienced counse-
student may enroll in one or more of such sections each
term with the approval of his counselor.
The associate of arts certificate serves to recognize
the completion of a University College program of general
education designed to broaden each student's intellectual
life and to provide perspective for later specialization in an
upper division college.
lors helps students in choosing educational and career
goals and in planning course programs.
The University Counseling Center provides profession-
al psychological services, including vocational guidance,
career information, assistance with academic problems,
specialized testing and personal counseling.
The University College offers two avenues for honors
endeavors. Participation is voluntary and limited to those
who maintain a "B" average in all work. The invitational s Bs
honors program is limited to certain students from each

arranged for superior students who wish to delve more
deeply into the subject matter of the course. A qualified
The University of Florida's upper division consists of
the 14 specialized colleges and schools where a student
who has completed the University College program or trans-
ferred from a junior college or other institution of higher
learning can concentrate in the area of career choice. Some
of the possible careers offered at the University are listed
on pages 4 and 5.
While completing the first two years of college work, a
student has studies in the several great areas of human
understanding and achievement and has been given a
chance to explore his aptitudes and abilities through edu-
cational experience, vocational examinations and counsel-
ing sessions with both upper and lower division counselors,
deans and department chairmen.
Necessary correlation and unification of combined
studies in the two divisions are important factors in guiding
students to a successful career choice and sound curricu-
lum planning. Included in the upper division are the pro-
fessional colleges of law and medicine.
Graduate instruction offering programs leading to the
degrees of doctor of philosophy in more than 50 fields,
doctor of education, specialist in education and the master's
degree in more than 80 areas is conducted through the
Graduate School by the faculties of the various colleges.
Training For Agricultural Business, Technology and Sciencuce
The College of Agriculture offers instruction leading
to careers in the nation's largest industry. Farming is only
one segment of agriculture, yet its bigness involves an an-
nual market at the farm level for over $40 billion of goods
and services that necessitate a tremendous number of agri-
culturally trained people.
A student may specialize in one of the three broad
areas of knowledge-agricultural science, agricultural tech-
nology or-agricultural business.
Agricultural economics emphasizes the administrative
and service aspects of agriculture and offers training in rural
sociology for those interested in teaching, research and
consultation on social and economic changes.
Agricultural and extension education provides a com-
bination of technical agricultural courses and professional
education and extension courses leading to activities as
county or demonstration agents and vocational agriculture
Agricultural engineering leads to the application of
engineering science to agriculture, including design and
sales of farm machinery, rural electric engineering and soil
and water conservation.
Animal science is concerned with production of beef
cattle, dairy cattle, poultry, turkeys, swine, horses and sheep.
Consideration is given to the packing house industry, the
grading and marketing of meat and poultry products and
the feed industry. Laboratory animal science yields jobs
managing small animal colonies in medical, pharmaceutical,
feed industry and other laboratories.
Field, fruit and vegetable crops are included in the
broad area of plant science including food and forage crop
production and utilization, genetics and plant breeding.
Ornamental horticulture opens career opportunities in flori-
culture, nursery operation, flower shops and landscaping.
Fruit production, handling and marketing offer other ave-
nues for employment.
Special attention to the function and management of
machines, structures, mechanical operations and processes
used in modern agriculture are included in the mechanized
agriculture program which develops proficiency in sales,
service and manufacture as related to the mechanization
of agricultural production.
Careers in agricultural chemicals, fertilizers and other
areas are found through programs in soils science or tech-
nology. Other areas of specialty include bacteriology, botany,
entomology and nematology, food science and plant patho-

ployment as landscape architects in city park departments
The Core of Iigher Education
With an all-encompassing range of A to Z, the College
of Arts and Sciences spans the realm of liberal education.
From anthropology to zoology, it offers the traditional
bachelor of arts and bachelor of science degrees in 29
subject areas and provides fundamental knowledge upon
which the professional colleges build.
The college aims to prepare the student for more com-
petent living and to develop human leadership.
A variety of opportunities for independent and seminar
honors work is offered to students who qualify for the
honors program within the college. Each student is con-
sidered as an intellectual individual.
Subjects in which majors may be obtained are anthro-
pology, art, bacteriology, biology, botany, chemistry, eco-
nomics, English, French, geography, geology, German,
Greek, history, Latin, library science, mathematics, music,
philosophy, physics, political science, psychology, religion,
Russian, sociology, Spanish, speech, statistics and zoology.
The college also has an advisement panel for student
conferences and a pre-professional counseling office for
medical and allied fields in the health sciences.
Special programs are available in teacher preparation
in arts and sciences, American, Latin American, Asian,
African and Russian studies, social administration, inter-
national affairs, public administration and government plan-
ning, history of science, fine arts and sanitary science.
Responsible Participation In Business, The Professions and Government
Students learn about structures in real estate courses
One of the broad objectives of the College of Business
Administration is to provide a foundation for competent,
responsible participation in business, the professions and Z
government, while striving to develop and encourage in-
While the college considers specific arts and detailed ,
information as necessary parts of the curriculum, it stresses
broad fundamentals and prepares the student to develop
subsequent specialization through one of its seven divi-
sions-the department of accounting, economics, finance
and insurance, management and business law, marketing,
real estate and urban land studies and the Bureau of
Economic Business Research.
The curriculum is divided into nine programs of study
in addition to a basic core requirement program. The nine
areas are accounting, banking and finance, quantitative
methods in business, economics, foreign trade and trans-
portation, insurance, management, marketing and real estate
and urban land studies.
Approximately one half of the work leading to a .
bachelor's degree in business is required from academic
areas outside of business administration.
The college recognizes its responsibilities to students J
in other colleges of the University by giving them an oppor-
tunity to complement their education with courses in eco-
nomics and business administration.
Scholarships in various phases' of business education
are available to students. Graduate assistantships and fel-
lowships also are open for students working toward the
degrees of master of business administration, master of arts
and doctor of philosophy.
In an age when education is deemed of primary im-
portance and even a necessity, the task of teaching the
teacher carries to new responsibilities.
The College of Education trains teachers for elementa-
ry and early childhood education, secondary education and
junior college education. Specialized work in various fields
is done through the College of Arts and Sciences and the
College of Agriculture.
However, classroom teaching is only one of many '
careers available to graduates of the College of Education. .
The Key To Knowledge, Understanding and Wisdom
Among other opportunities are jobs as school administrators,
S ,supervisors, counselors and other guidance specialists, li-
brarians, media specialists, social workers, school psycholo-
gists, attendance workers, speech therapists and reading
clinicians. There are also positions available in the fields of
Educational materials, educational television, person-
S. nel work, foreign service and educational research.
u. Under the teacher education program, graduates are
granted certification to teach in 30 states. These programs,
40, accredited by the National Council for Accreditations of
Teacher Education, are designed to develop the student in
three broad areas-general preparation (background of
liberal education); professional sequence (psychological
and social foundations of education, curriculum, and intern-
ship) and teaching field (specialization in subject matter).
Students also may receive preparation in three areas of
special education mental retardation, learning disabilities
and emotional disturbance and social maladjustment.
The college offers five graduate degrees master of
education, master of arts in education, specialist in educa-
tion, the doctor of education and the doctor of philosophy.
The Bridge Between Human Needs
And The Storehouse of Theoretical Knowledge
A shortage of qualified engineers and the rapid devel-
opment of engineering technology are combining to place
added emphasis on strong educational programs for
The University of Florida plans to expand facilities
and add faculty in its College of Engineering to accom-
modate 2,200 students by 1971. Included in that total will
be a significant number of graduate students as a current
trend toward increased knowledge continues to affect
One of every five students went to graduate school
for engineering studies in 1960; the ratio today is approach-
ing a one to two proportion.
The fields of engineering often have been restricted to
a man's domain. In recent years, however, more women
have been entering the profession and taking their places
on an equal footing with men.
Engineering challenges the individual, stimulates in-
genuity and resourcefulness and yields a rewarding sense
of creative accomplishment. It involves almost every aspect
of human experience, applying science to the common pur-
pose of life, coupling science with the management of men,
money, machines and materials.
The College of Engineering specifies two different
programs, based on career objectives... the bachelor of
science in engineering for research, design, development
and management and the bachelor of engineering degree
covering professional work in sales, construction, produc-
tion and management.
Twelve areas of specialization are part of the College
of Engineering curriculum: aerospace, agricultural, environ-
mental, chemical, civil, coastal and oceanographic, electri-
cal, industrial and systems, mechanical, metallurgical and
materials, nuclear engineering sciences, engineering science
and mechanics, and a new program in life sciences engi-
Master's and doctoral degrees may be pursued in most
of these areas, as well as the new area of life sciences
(biomedical) engineering, which begins at the undergraduate
level and is administered jointly by the College of Medicine
and the College of Engineering.
The wide range of College of Engineering instructional
material is made available to professional engineers in Day-
tona Beach, Orlando and Cape Kennedy via the GENESYS
(Graduate Engineering Education System) closed circuit
television network. The unique features of the GENESYS
arrangement help to provide a continuing learning process
for engineers in industry attempting to maintain proficiency
in technological ability. In most instances these studies lead
to higher degrees.
America, most of it a wilderness just 100 years ago,
today offers career opportunities in modern forestry and
its related fields that are wide in scope and diversity.
Modern science and technology, an expanding business
economy and increasing recreational needs of our sky-
rocketing population have greatly extended the variety and
nature of work of present-day foresters.
Over 25,000 foresters and wildlife ecologists are now
employed in the United States. They occupy many different
types of positions ... as administrators, staff specialists, re-
search scientists, industrialists, technical salesmen, college
teachers and business leaders. Activities range from the
care and management of forested lands for the many goods
and services they provide to the manufacture and marketing
of hundreds of consumer products.
The School of Forestry provides professional educa-
tion at the undergraduate level in three major fields...
forestry, wildlife ecology and forest products technology.
Through the selection of elective courses, forestry stu-
dents may begin to specialize in one of the following options:
timber management, forest wildlife management, industrial
forestry or recreational resources management.
Opportunities for graduate education are also available.
The school is one of 32 accredited nationally by the Society
of American Foresters.
The school has varied facilities for carrying out its
instructional and research objectives. Two University for-
ests of more than 2,000 acres each are used for field studies,
demonstration and research.
Woodland holdings, in excess of 250,000 acres, of five
large pulp and paper companies and several smaller private
forestry operations located within a radius of 20 miles of
the campus are available for laboratory use.
The school has a nursery and a small sawmill located
at the school forest. A wood products laboratory, a wildlife
ecology laboratory, a forest tree physiology-genetics lab-
oratory and greenhouses are located on campus.
Expanding Our Frontiers of Knowledge
The increasing interest and demand for graduate de-
grees is triggered by the development of science, technolo-
gy, humanities and the social sciences to a point where one
cannot achieve adequate knowledge through a four-year
undergraduate program. Today's requirements for greater
ability in such studies as aerospace engineering, pharmacy,
mathematics, education, chemistry, history and sociology
are being met at the University of Florida, however.
The growth in stature and size of the University's
Graduate School is indicative of current educational em-
phasis and of trends in the decade ahead.
Enrollment has more than doubled since 1957, ap-
proaching the 3,000 level for the 1968 fall quarter, and is
expected to double again by 1975. Ten years ago, 70 doc-
torate degrees were conferred by the University; in 1966-67
199 doctorates were awarded. Rankings place Florida among
the national leaders in the production of Ph.D. recipients.
Students can attain master's degrees through any of
85 different majors. Fifty-four types of Ph.D. degrees also
are available, along with four areas of study for a doctor of
education degree. The Colleges of Agriculture, Arts and
Sciences, Business Administration, Engineering, Medicine
and Pharmacy offer a variety of course material leading to
Graduate education enables promising and talented
students with baccalaureate degrees to delve deeper into
their fields of specialization with necessary time allotted for
ample research, required reading, pointed discussion with
colleagues and professional guidance from faculty members
who have gained prominence through their own scholarly
Scientific advances today are tumbling out of health
and medical research-at an overwhelming rate, swelling
the opportunities of learning in fields which did not even
have names a century ago.
New concepts, new treatments, new answers, new
efforts-in short, exciting scientific progress-have brought
into focus the health related professions and given them
their full recognition as integral elements in the field of
Growing numbers of students in the College of Health
Related Professions are learning in the company of medical
students and doctors, nursing students and nurses, pharma-
cists and pharmacy students as well as patients in the
Shan'ds Teaching Hospital and Clinics.
The four colleges and the hospital are an integral part
of the J. Hillis Miller Health Center, a modern complex of
institutions which advance human health and train tomor-
row's leaders in the health professions.
The College of Health Related Professions offers
bachelor of science degrees in occupational therapy, physi-
cal therapy and medical technology, the master's degree
in rehabilitation counseling and graduate training in health
and hospital administration.
The program in clinical psychology is closely linked
to the Department of Psychology in the College of Arts
and Sciences. The faculty is responsible for specialized
courses and clinical training experience of the graduate
students in clinical psychology.
The college's program in communicative disorders-
speech and hearing-provides facilities for clinical affilia-
tion and pre-doctoral, doctoral and post-doctoral training in
speech pathology and audiology. The Rehabilitation Re-
search Institute is an additional research facility for students
and faculty in the programs of the college.
The first two years of the four-year curricula are spent
in the undergraduate University College where freshmen
and sophomore students complete pre-professional courses
as well as a series of comprehensive studies.
The field of communications is the tool by which the
world is being made smaller. People in England are in-
formed of the launching of the United States' astronauts _..
almost at the same instant of the rocket's lift-off from Cape i
Kennedy. Hundreds of Americans are aware of the situa-
tions in Viet Nam and the Soviet Union by means of the k a .cs

These students receive a general background in the
major area of human knowledge. Three-fourths of the
curriculum is devoted to this general education, while one-
fourth is concerned with techniques of the trade.
Journalism students receive practical experience in
studios of the University's radio and television stations, on
laboratory newspapers and student publications, through

The college offers programs in broadcasting, adver-
tising, public relations, news-editorial and technical journal-
ism. Graduates are awarded the bachelor of science degree.
The college also offers the master of arts degree.
Education for lawyers may be categorized in three sep-
ate phases: pre-legal training, the law school career and
The University of Florida's College of Law deliberately
avoids prescribing a set undergraduate program as the
basis of pre-legal training. Instead, attention is directed to
broad diversification so that the student gains an early
knowledge of the formative processes of our civilizations,
the nature of men and their institutions, an awareness of the
technology of our age, a capacity for understanding inde-
pendent and challenging thinking, and finally, an ability to
express himself in the English language both clearly and
Therefore, the optimum undergraduate curriculum
should include courses, regardless of area, which help to
develop clear and systematic thinking, which promote com-
mand of the English language, and which contribute to
broad understanding of our society. Courses in the human-
ities, physical sciences, biological sciences and social
studies should be blended in proper proportion and supple-
mented with wide independent reading in such a curriculum.
Foundation courses covering such subject matter as
contracts, torts, civil procedure, constitutional law, legal
research, criminal law and legal writing are included in the
first year curriculum.
Students may specialize in fields of individual interest;
however, all are required to take a minimum number of
hours in each of six main areas, including commercial law,
perspective (jurisprudence, international law, comparative
law, legal history, etc.), procedure, property, public law
A wide and varied range of electives are available -
family law, admiralty, military jurisprudence, estates plan-
ning and hospital and health law among them. Additional
requirements cover completion of both legal ethics and
legal writing courses.
Extra-curricular activities available to law students in-
clude moot court team competition, writing and editing for
the Law Review, a quarterly publication, and participation
in events sponsored by three legal fraternities, a legal
sorority, honor societies and student associations.
Enrollment in the College of Law currently is being
limited to about 700 students per year. Completion in 1968
of a new $3 million law center in the northwest portion of
the campus will enable the college to meet the needs of
1,200 students with expanded library, classroom and office

Clinics, and the VA Hospital at Gainesville.
Since comprehensive health care demands more than
the services of a physician, the education of the latter is
done in correlation and juxtaposition with the education of
students in nursing, pharmacy, dentistry, and health related
professions such as occupational therapy, physical therapy,
clinical psychology, medical technology, and others. The
J. Hillis Miller Health Center of the University of Florida
offers unique opportunities for such collaborative educa-
tional and research programs.
The physician has to be a scientist and a humanitarian.
The program is designed to develop both in our students.
The faculty is developing a philosophy and code of behavior
which encourages a blending of these qualities in the pro-
fessional activity of medical students. The location of the
College of Medicine on the University of Florida campus
facilitates opportunities to medical education which are not
M E D IC IN E frequently found in other medical institutions.
Medicine represents the major resource for the health
care of the individual in our society; thus, to the physician
is delegated great personal and social responsibility. The
College of Medicine, as an academic institution, has the
objectives of strengthening medicine in the state and the
nation through its educational and research programs. The s
students in the programs represent the pool from which
future practicing physicians, leaders in health care and
medical teachers and investigators will emerge. Only pro-
grams of great variety and high quality can satisfy these
needs of the state, and high demands are placed upon the
students in them.
The College of Medicine is concerned with medical
education at all levels, namely premedical, undergraduate
medical, graduate medical, and continuing medical educa-
tion. The program leading to a Ph.D. in medical sciences is
essential to build strength on a continuing basis in this area.
The resources of the College comprise the basic sci-
ence and clinical science faculties and facilities provided by
the J. Hillis Miller Health Center. These include the Medical
A graduate of the College of Nursing is a privileged
nurse she is the recipient of a bachelor of science
degree in nursing, following four years of general education
and professional training.
This education is one which stresses the application
of the physical, biological and social sciences to nursing
care and which builds a sound philosophical basis for con-
tinuing education throughout a nursing career.
After entering the college in her third year, the nursing
student is encouraged to continue her studies in other col-
leges in the University, under the concept that with a well-
rounded education, the nurse can work more effectively
with the'patient on a personal, as well as clinical, level.
Within the college, her work is divided between the
classroom, where nursing theory is taught, and the clinical
facility, where the theory is tested and put into practice
with patients and families.
The University of Florida nursing student learns that
an inquiring attitude, habits of good observation, a concern
to alleviate suffering and disciplined technical and inter-
personal skills and knowledge are essential for effective
Throughout her education she learns problem solving
techniques, alternative courses of action and methods to
evaluate her nursing actions. She also learns there is a
science of "care" as well as a science of "cure."
Research in nursing is a major concern of the college
with the belief that a more complete body of knowledge
will improve nursing care and the teaching of nursing.
The college also offers a master of nursing degree to
prepare graduates to be clinical specialists and teachers
Pharmaceutical aids to the prevention and treatment
of disease are more specific and more beneficial today
than at any time in the history of man.
And with the increasing role of drugs in disease con-
trol-and the research to develop and test new drugs-the
demand for pharmacists in all fields far exceeds the supply.
With the growing complexity of drugs, the many new
ones and their fast-expanding therapeutic role, the com-
munity pharmacist is becoming more and more a partner of
the physician in the care of the ill.
In the pharmaceutical industry, the same health de-
mands are bringing rapid changes. The increasing volume
of drugs, their greater complexity and the physiological
problems of drug treatment put pressing demands on the
industrial pharmacist to be knowledgeable in such areas
as chemistry, biopharmaceutics, biology and physiology.
With medicine turning more and more to drugs for
treatment and prevention of disease, the demands on the
pharmaceutical researcher also are becoming greater and
more complex. He, too, must be an expert in biopharma-
ceutics, mathematics, physiology and chemistry.
The fourth "phase" of pharmacy-hospital pharmacy
-is a rapidly expanding newcomer to the health scene.
His role is almost pre-determined by the "health center
phenomenon," the concentration of all health specialties in
one complete-care institution. The hospital pharmacist must
understand the physiology of the human body as well as
the chemistry and pharmaceutics of drugs... the patient
as well as the medication.
The first part of the undergraduate curriculum con-
sists of two academic years of study in general education
and the basic sciences in the University College or any ac-
credited college of arts and sciences or a junior college.
This is followed by three years of professional pharmacy
courses in the College of Pharmacy. Electives are avail-
able for specialization in community, hospital and industrial
pharmacy along with research pharmacy in preparation for
post-graduate studies in the pharmaceutical sciences.

Long recognized for its outstanding student self-
government, the University of Florida system is one based
on mutual confidence between the student body and the
faculty. Considerable authority has been granted the student
body for the regulation and conduct of student activities.
Student government is patterned on the state and
national form with powers distributed into the legislative,
executive and judicial branches. The student honor code
has been in operation for more than 50 years.
Practically every area of professional and academic
interest has a chapter of the national honorary society
which recognizes outstanding performance and achieve-
ment in the field. There are also honorary organizations for
both men and women which acknowledge outstanding

and lectures are free to students.
Twenty-seven national collegiate fraternities are active
on the University campus; most of them have built chapter
houses and others have leased homes. The general work of
the fraternities is controlled by the Interfraternity Council,
composed of the president from each of the fraternities.
Fourteen national women's collegiate groups have
Florida Players drama production
established chapters at the University. The general work of
the sororities is controlled by the Panhellenic Council.
A broad program of inter-denominational religious ac-
tivities is sponsored on campus by the University Religious
Association. Composed of representatives of all denomina-
tional student religious groups and of the student body and
faculty at large, the association brings outstanding lecturers
in the field of religion to the University, holds group discus-
sions and seminars and enlists students in a program of
service to the University and the state. Many denominational
student centers are located adjacent to the campus and
have full-time student pastors.
The Reitz Union serves as the official center of student
activities. The newly-constructed building provides facilities,
services and a varied program of activities available to all
persons of the University "community." The Union also

encompass many areas and they do at the University
Whether it be spectator sports such as viewing the
Florida Gators in football action along with 60,000 others at
Florida Field ... or intramural competition against teams
from fraternities, sororities and residence halls ... or re-
quired physical education courses during the early stages
of his academic career, the student obtains benefit from a
wide spectrum of choice.
As a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Associ-
ation and the Southeastern Conference, Florida administers
its intercollegiate program through policies and regulations
established by those organizations. Major sports include
.,, football, basketball, baseball, track and swimming. Minor
sports are golf, tennis and cross country.

table tennis. Equipment for all activities is available through
the check-out service in Florida Gymnasium.
All incoming freshmen are required to participate satis-
factorily in a program of physical fitness and sports for the
first two regular school years. Preliminary conditioning and
testing in a variety of areas, including boxing, gymnastics,
track and field and swimming, prepare the student for more
advanced instruction in such activities as golf, handball,
judo, lacrosse, senior life saving, soccer, swimming, tennis
Additional courses are available for those who wish

*For the purpose of assessing tuition applicants are classified as Florida or non-
Florida students. In applying this regulation "applicant" shall mean a student applying
for admission to the University of Florida if he is 21 years of age, or if he is a minor,
it shall mean parents, parent or guardian of his or her person. Such applicant will pay
the non-Florida tuition and other charges required of non-Florida students unless he
shall be a citizen of the United States and shall have resided and had his habitation,
domicile, home and permanent abode in the State of Florida for at least 12 months
immediately preceding his registration.
All students not able to qualify as Florida students are classified as non-Florida
The University maintains several cafeterias, dining halls
and snack-bars, which are supervised by trained dietitians
who carefully plan menus. All services are cafeteria style.
In addition to the University's food services, the campus
is surrounded by a number of commercial establishments
which cater to the student trade.
Students should bring sufficient funds, other than per-
sonal checks, to meet the immediate needs. Personal checks

The Student Health Department maintains a 65-bed
hospital for all full-time students currently enrolled in the
University who have paid their registration fees. A physician
is on 24-hour call for care of emergencies too severe to be
cared for by the nursing staff. When the illness is determined
by the physician to be more than average severity, parents
will be notified by telephone.
A medical history and physical examination, to include
immunization for smallpox, tetanus and polio, are a require-
ment for all entering students.
Many students earn part of their college expenses by
working part-time while going to school. This requires real
determination and careful budgeting of hours, but thousands
of students have obtained their education in this way.
While the primary financial responsibility for college
expenses rests with the student and his family, the Univer-
sity recognizes that many qualified students could not attend
college if some sort of financial aid was not made available
to them. The University has a financial aid program to en-
courage high scholastic accomplishment and leadership by
providing, when possible, scholarships, grants-in-aid, work
opportunities and counseling to students.
Many full-time positions are available on campus to
wives of students who can qualify for clerical, secretarial
and laboratory positions. Applications for these positions
should be made through the Office of the Director of Em-
ployee Personnel, University of Florida, Gainesville.
The University of Florida offers instruction in the
military sciences as an integral part of its curricula. The
Departments of the Army and of the Air Force each maintain
a Reserve Officers Training Corps. Students may elect to
take either Army or Air Force ROTC in the freshman and
sophomore year. While neither program is a prerequisite to
graduation, a student must take basic ROTC if he desires to
compete for space in advanced ROTC, leading to a commis-
sion as a second lieutenant. Advanced ROTC is highly
selective. Advanced cadets are paid $50 per month and can
usually defer active duty to pursue post-graduate study if
ADMISSION INFORMATION AND INSTRUCTION
Application for admission to any College, School or
Division of the University must be made to the Admissions
Section of the Office of the Registrar on the forms pre-
scribed and by the dates indicated below. It is quite proper
to correspond with Deans, Directors or Department Chair-
men but such contact with University officers does not in
any way eliminate the necessity for filing a formal applica-
tion in the Office of the Registrar by the dates specified.
There are three basic requirements of all students seek-
ing admission to any college or division of the University
1. a satisfactory academic record
2. satisfactory scores on achievement tests or exam-
3. a satisfactory conduct record
Variations in these fundamentals are determined by the
University's Admissions Committee which is responsible for
reviewing all undergraduate admissions.
ADMISSION AS A FRESHMAN
When to Apply: No application will be considered for the
Freshman Class more than one year in advance of the date
on which entrance is sought. The best time to apply is the
early part of the senior year in Secondary School. The dead-
line for applications for September and June is March 1.
Notification of admission or denial will be given to all
applicants by early April. The deadline for applications for
January is December 1.
Admission of students is on a selective basis. The
availability of community junior colleges and other state
universities in Florida has caused the Board of Regents to
assign to the University of Florida a role in the total state
system of higher education which demands that the entering
Freshman Class be limited in number. Such limitation does
not prevent students from attending the upper division and
professional schools of the University since they may attend
junior colleges or other universities and, if qualified, subse-
quently transfer to the University's upper division colleges.
The requirements for admission set forth below are
designed to give priority to those applicants whose poten-
tial on the basis of their record indicates the greatest likeli-
hood of success and the obtaining of maximum benefits
from the University College program at the University of
A. Requirements for admission Graduates of Florida
For consideration a student must meet the following
1. Graduation from an accredited secondary school.
2. Twelve academic units (English, Foreign Language,
Mathematics, Science, and Social Science)
3. A "C" average in academic courses.
4. A score in the top 40% (total score of 300) on the
Florida Twelfth Grade Tests.
5. A record of good conduct. Major or continuing dif-
ficulty with school or other authorities may make
an applicant ineligible regardless of his academic
Probability of academic success at the University of
Florida, based on secondary school academic record and
test scores, is the most important factor considered in deter-
mining whether an applicant will be selected for admission.
This does not mean, however, that only those students with
the highest grades and test scores will be admitted. The Uni-
versity firmly believes that a mixture of many varied back-
grounds, interests, talents, career objectives, et cetera,
contributes most to its academic, social, and cultural en-
vironment and strives to admit a well rounded class which is
representative of the State of Florida as a whole. Therefore,
the student's total record including educational objective
and pattern of courses completed, rank in class, school's
recommendation and personal record is considered in reach-
ing the admissions decision. Although the size of the
entering Freshman Class is limited, the University does not
wish to discourage anyone from applying who is interested
in the University of Florida and meets the minimum admis-
sion requirements stated above.
Composite pictures of recent freshman classes at the
University of Florida indicate that approximately 70% score
above 380 on the Florida Twelfth Grade Test and that ap-
proximately 50% of each entering class has earned a "B"
or better average in high school academic subjects. Pro-
spective freshman applicants are urged to discuss the mean-
ing and implication of these data when compared to their
own record with their high school guidance counselors in
reaching a decision on whether to apply for admission to the
University of Florida.
B. Requirements for admission Graduates of Secondary
Schools in States Other Than Florida.
Because of a limited entering freshman class, only a
small number of highly qualified students from states other
than Florida may be admitted. The minimum requirements
for consideration are essentially the same as for Florida
students except that comparable scores on the Scholastic
Aptitude Test of the College Entrance Examination Board
are expected. In addition, each out of state student must
achieve an academic average of "B" or better and should
rank in the top fifth of his class.
ADMISSION AS A TRANSFER STUDENT TO
UNDERGRADUATE SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES
A student who has attended any college or university,
regardless of the amount of time attended or credit earned,
is regarded as a transfer student.
General requirements for admission as an undergrad-
uate transfer student include:
1. A record of good standing at each institution pre-
viously attended. An applicant must be in good standing
and eligible to continue at each institution previously at-
tended in order to be considered for transfer.
2. A satisfactory academic record. An applicant must
have an average of "C" or higher, as computed by the Uni-
versity of Florida, on all work attempted at each institution.
3. Satisfactory test scores. An applicant must present
satisfactory scores on an acceptable college level general
The University of Florida does not allow transfer credit
for courses completed at other institutions with a grade of
less than "C" or its equivalent by the University of Florida
evaluation. Transfer credit is not allowed for terminal voca-
tional courses or programs regardless of grades earned.
ADMISSION TO THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
General requirements for admission to the Graduate
1. A baccalaureate degree from an accredited insti-
tution of higher learning.
2. A grade average of B for the junior and senior years.
3. Satisfactory scores on the Graduate Record Exam-
ination which is given in major cities throughout the United
States, five times each year, and administered by the Edu-
cational Testing Service. Schedule of testing dates, appli-
cation forms for the Graduate Record Examination and a
list of test centers can be obtained from the Educational
Testing Service, Princeton, New Jersey, or from the Office
of the Registrar, University of Florida, Gainesville.
ADMISSION TO THE COLLEGE OF LAW
The admission standards of the College of Law are de-
signed to conform with the policy of the Association of
American Law Schools that a "sound educational program
is advanced by limiting admissions to students whose pre-
vious college records, aptitude tests, and other relevant
information indicate a reasonable prospect for success in
General requirements for admission to the College of
1. A baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited
college or university.
2. A satisfactory score on the Law School Admission
Test which is given in major cities throughout the United
States, four times each year, and administered by the Edu-
cational Testing Service. Schedule of testing dates, applica-
tion forms and a list of testing centers can be obtained from
the Educational Testing Center, Princeton, New Jersey, or
from the Office of the Registrar, University of Florida. The
minimum score required on the Law School Admission Test
is determined on the basis of the overall undergraduate
collegiate average of the applicant as computed by the Uni-
versity of Florida. The higher the overall undergraduate
average, the lower the test score required to be considered
for admission. It is not recommendecthat a person with a
Law School Admission Test score below 540 apply unless he
possesses an above average undergraduate record. An ap-
propriate adjustment in the test score will be made in cases
where the score submitted is the result of retaking the test.
ADMISSION TO THE COLLEGE OF MEDICINE
Personal qualities of high order- character, responsi-
bility and maturity-are the primary requirements for ad-
mission. The student must have demonstrated superior
General requirements for admission to the College of

gree is strongly recommended. The quality of the academic
background as well as the performance of the student in
relation to the load attempted, will be weighed.
2. A satisfactory score on the Medical College Ad-
mission Test. An applicant should take this test by the
spring preceding the submission of his application. The
test is given twice yearly in many colleges and universities.
For further information about the test, write to The Psycho-
logical Corporation, 304 East 45th Street, New York, N. Y.
3. A personal interview after preliminary screening
and before final acceptance.
ADMISSION TO THE COLLEGE OF DENTISTRY
The College of Dentistry is being planned as an inte-
gral part of the J. Hillis Miller Health Center. The College
expects to accept 48 students per year beginning in Sep-
tember, 1971. Since part of the proposed curriculum will
be presented jointly with the College of Medicine, the ad-
mission requirements will be the same for both schools.
Address the Office of Admissions, University of Florida,
asking for application forms, indicating the category--
Freshman, Undergraduate Transfer, Graduate, Medicine, or
Law-for which the applicant qualifies.
Students enrolled in Florida secondary schools may ob-
tain application forms for admission to the University of Flor-
ida freshman class from their school guidance counselors.
Applications for admission may be submitted up to one
year in advance of the desired date of enrollment. A dead-
line date for receipt of applications has been established
for each term. Applications cannot be accepted after the
deadline date for each term which is published in the
catalog. (The deadline date for beginning freshmen for the
Summer and Fall Quarter is March 1.) As a general rule,
all other applicants should submit their applications at least
three months prior to the beginning of the term for which
they plan to enroll.
Beginning freshmen who apply for admission to the Uni-
versity will receive Housing Contracts upon approval of
admission. No application for housing is made by a begin-
All other students must initiate their arrangements for
housing, either by applying to the Office of the Director of
Housing for assignment to the University Housing facilities,
or, in the case of eligible upperclassmen, obtaining private
accommodations through the Off-Campus Housing Section
or through fraternities or sororities.
Applications for University Housing for students other
than beginning freshmen may be filed at any time after an
application for admission to the University has been made.
