A. Undergraduate Colleges and Schools: Passing grades are A, B, C, D, in order
of excellence. Failing grades are E-Failure, I-Incomplete, X-Absent from
examination, grades of I and X are considered as failing grades. They
must be changed to passing grades in accordance with the dates set in the
University Calendar or be considered as grades of E in considering a stu-
dent's record for graduation or in calculating averages. Ew-Dropped for






STUDENT REGULATIONS


non-attendance or unsatisfactory work. Students registered in the School of
Architecture and Allied Arts for courses in architecture and art offered by
the project method receive the grade of H (which is neither passing nor
failing) to indicate that the course is not completed.
B. Graduate School: Passing grades for students registered in the Graduate
School are A and B. All other grades are failing grades.

XIV

AVERAGES
A. How Computed:
Averages are determined by computing the ratio of honor points to semes-
ter hours carried. The student receives honor points according to the follow-
ing scale: A equals 4 honor points per semester hour; B equals 3 honor
points per semester hour; C equals 2 honor points per semester hour; D
equals 1 honor point per semester hour; E equals 0 honor point per semester
hour; Ew equals 0 honor point per semester hour; H equals 0 honor point
per semester hour; I equals 0 honor point per semester hour; X equals 0
honor point per semester hour.
B. Group Averages: Group averages are computed according to the method
adopted by the National Association of Deans of Men. This method gives
the average number of honor points earned for each semester hour taken by
the group during the period of time for which the average is computed.

XV
FAILURE IN STUDIES
A person registered in one of the colleges or professional schools of the Up-
per Division who fails fifty per cent or more of his work in any term or semester
will be dropped for failure in studies and will not be readmitted to the Univers-
sity until the lapse of one semester, except upon approval of a formal petition
by the Senate Committee on Student Petitions. A student who has been dropped
once and in any subsequent period of attendance fails fifty per cent or more of
his work shall be dropped permanently and not be eligible for readmission.
Students registered in the University College will have their records reviewed
by a Committee on Student Progress at the end of each period of attendance.
In general the committee will be guided by the following policy. The student in
the Lower Division who has been in attendance one semester or the equivalent
(two six-weeks summer terms are considered the equivalent of a semester) and
in any subsequent period of attendance fails fifty per cent or more of his work
will be dropped first time and will not be eligible for readmission until the lapse
of one semester, except on approval of a formal petition by the Senate Com-
mittee on Student Petitions. A student who has been dropped once and in any
subsequent period of attendance fails fifty per cent or more of his work shall be
dropped permanently and will not be eligible for readmission.
Notification is made to the parent or guardian by the Office of the Registrar.
In case of failure in one course only, the student will not be dropped, even
though this course may constitute 50 per cent or more of his work. When a
student is dropped for non-attendance or resigns while failing 50 per cent or






UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA


more of his work during the last quarter of a semester or summer term, he will
not be permitted to reenter until one semester or summer session has elapsed
after such a failure.
Students who have been dropped twice from the University for any cause
(whether consecutively or not) are considered to be dropped permanently, and
their records are so marked. They can not be readmitted to the University
except by action of the University Senate. A student who has been dropped
permanently may apply for readmission to the University by filing a petition
with the Registrar. This petition should be accompanied by evidence which
might have weight in influencing the decision of the Senate.
The first time a student is dropped from the University for failure, his
record shall be marked, "Dropped first time for failure in studies". The second
time a student is dropped for failure in studies, his record shall be marked,
"Dropped permanently for failure in studies".
Students presenting credits earned while not eligible for registration at the
University of Florida may be given provisional credit on reentry. Credit for
this work will be given if the student makes a C average for the year immediate-
ly following reinstatement. The work in question must be taken at an ac-
credited institution and will be evaluated according to the regulations of the
Board of University Examiners.

XVI

ABSENCES OR UNSATISFACTORY WORK
Absences count from the first meeting of the class rather than from the date
a student registers for a class.
A. If any student accumulates absences or fails to do class work to the extent
that further enrollment in the class appears to be of little value to him and
detrimental to the best interest of the class, it shall be the duty of the in-
structor to warn such student in writing that further absences or failure to
do class work will cause him to be dropped from the course with a failing
grade. Where possible this warning will be delivered personally; otherwise,
it will be mailed to the student's last University address by the Registrar.
Instructors shall immediately report all such warnings to the Department
Head or Course Chairman. Should any absences or failure to do class work
be incurred after this warning, the student will be dropped from the class and
be given a failing grade by the Registrar upon receipt of notice from the in-
structor showing the date of warning. Should this reduce the load of the
student below the minimum required, he will be dropped from the University
and his record marked "Dropped for Non-Attendance" or "Dropped for Un-
satisfactory Work", as the case may be. Rules applying to dismissal for fail-
ure in studies shall also apply to students dropped under this section.
B. When a student is dropped from a course under the provisions of A above,
his parents shall be notified in writing by the Registrar.
C. Nine-Day Rule: No student shall absent himself from the University for
more than nine scholastic days per semester in order to participate in ath-
letic or in other extra-curricular activities.
The Nine-Day Rule applies to individual members of the group rather
than to the group as a whole. Consequently, a schedule of more than nine






STUDENT REGULATIONS


days for any activity is not prohibited, provided the personnel of the group
is so rotated that no student is absent from the campus for more than nine
"scholastic" days (a scholastic day is any day on which regular class work
is scheduled).
D. A student who has been warned for absences or unsatisfactory work in any
class should not incur additional absences in that course, even though he has
not been absent from the class for nine scholastic days. It is the responsi-
bility of the student to see that his class work and attendance is satisfactory.


XVII

CONDUCT
A. Offenses Against Good Conduct: All students will be held responsible for
conformity to laws of the nation and of the state. The following offenses
are deemed to be against the best interests of the University and will be

4. Expulsion.
REPRIMAND is given by the proper officers of the University, according

bation may represent the University in any intercollegiate contest, nor may
he hold any student-body office or any University position for which re-
muneration is given.
SUSPENSION excludes the student from the University for a definite
time. The exact date of the end of the period of suspension must be stated
in the suspension decree.
EXPULSION is permanent dismissal from the University.

the chairman of the faculty committee responsible for the organization which
the student wishes to represent shall submit to the Registrar for his approval
a list of all participating students. All such reports shall be delivered in
person or by special messenger to the Registrar's office. The faculty com-
mittee having charge of any student activity coming under the above rule
shall designate some faculty member to be responsible for the reports.
The Registrar shall pass on all questions of eligibility and shall interpret
all rules pertaining to eligibility insofar as scholarship and residence are
concerned.
Deficiencies may be removed by summer session attendance or extension
work, provided the student is eligible for such work; or by any other method
permissible under the rules and regulations of the University.
B. Special Regulations:

STUDENT REGULATIONS


5. In general, every effort will be made to place students in positions in
which they have had training or in which they will receive valuable
training.
6. No student on probation of any kind will be given a position. If, while
holding a position, the student is placed on probation, the individual will
be required to resign from the position.
7. A student may not hold two University positions, the combined salaries
of which (plus other sources of income) are in excess of an amount
necessary for the student to remain in college at minimum comfort level.
D. Classification of Work and Rate of Pay:
The proper University committees and officials attempt to achieve equity in
salary among University student employees. With that objective as a goal, the
classification of student workers and the rate of pay varies within the ranges
of the skill, experience, and tenure of the worker, the nature of the duties
performed, and the budgeted funds available.
The minimum wage paid to a part-time, student worker should be the
equivalent of one meal for each hour of efficient service rendered. Currently
(summer and fall, 1948), the average rate of pay for student workers approxi-
mates sixty to seventy cents per hour, with fifty cents per hour the average
minimum.

ing conditions:
1. A student applicant acceptable to the department or unit shall be prop-
erly certified by the designated official of the Committee on Student Aid
and Scholarships as being Eligible for Employment under University
regulations.
If the student be eligible and so certified, both the student and the
department or unit official shall comply with current budget and payroll
procedures.
2. After the beginning of each term, each department or unit will report on
forms submitted by the designated official of the Committee on Student
Aid and Scholarships the name, labor class, approximate number of
hours to be employed per month, and the price per hour to be paid stu-
dents working for the department or unit.

XXIHI
SCHOLARSHIPS AND LOAN FUNDS
All scholarships and loan funds controlled directly by the University shall
be administered under the direction of the Committee on Student Aid and
Scholarships.
The Committee makes periodic scholastic and conduct reports to the donors
and administrators of all scholarships and loan funds. If a holder of a scholar-
ship or loan fund has been guilty of any serious breach of conduct, or, in
general, if he makes an average for the year of less than C or the equivalent,
the Committee shall recommend to the donors that the student be deprived of
the scholarship. In case the student falls below the required average on ac-






UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA


count of illness or some other unavoidable cause, he should present evidence of
such circumstances to the attention of the Committee.
For further information concerning scholarships and loan funds, see the cur-
rent catalog.

versity regulations and will be dealt with by the Committee on Discipline.
