FOREWORD

The purpose in printing this book of regulations is to do away with un-
certainty and to make definite statements concerning what is expected of
students and faculty members. In most instances the regulations are of long
standing; new ones have been added only where a need was felt, and then
only after many conferences with faculty members, students, and patrons.
LAn effort has been made to present clear statements which will cover
most situations. However, the spirit of the law will determine its application
in all cases. The purpose in making every regulation has been to secure
suitable conditions under which faculty and students may work together
in achieving the purpose back of the establishment and maintenance of the
University.
It is hoped that faculty members, students, and patrons will study these
regulations carefully and that all will cooperate in adapting them to our
University conditions.
There may be instances in which experience may demonstrate the desir-
ability of some changes. Suggestions from both faculty members and
students will be welcomed.
In case the operation of these By-laws would work an injustice on an
individual student, a petition may be made to a committee consisting of the
dean of the college in which the student is registered, the Secretary of the
Senate. and the Dean of Students. In case the student is not satisfied with
the decision of this committee further appeal may be made to the Senate
Committee on Appeals. Such petitions should be addressed to the Secretary
of the University Senate.

B. Explanations: The grade of E indicates complete failure in the course. In order
to receive credit, the student must repeat the course in class.
The grade of I means that some part of the term's work remains undone because of
sickness or of some other reason satisfactory to the instructor. This work must be com-
pleted by mid-term of the following term or summer term after reentering the University
if credit for the course is to be gained. The grade I is not given to a student whose work
is below passing. If not removed within the time specified, it will be changed to E.
The grade X denotes that the student was absent from the examination. The grade X
entitles the student to a deferred examination at the next examination period during
residence in the University, provided his absence was due to illness or other extenuating
circumstances. If the student cannot furnish a satisfactory excuse to both the instructor
and the dean, he is not entitled to a deferred examination and the grade X automatically
becomes E. If the deferred examination is not taken at the next examination period
.during residence in the University, or is taken and not passed, the grade X will be changed
to E. If the examination is passed the student shall receive the same grade as he would
have received had he taken it at the regularly scheduled time.
The grade W indicates that the student dropped the course during the term but was
passing in the course at the time it was dropped.
The grade Ew indicates that the student dropped the course during the term and was
failing the course at the time it was dropped. (For the effect of Eut, see Section XII,
"Failure in Studies").







BULLETIN OF BY-LAfVS


The grade N indicates that the instructor did not turn in a grade for th- student for
the period covered by the report.
Students may not remove a condition in the first term of the year course- iy averaging
the grades of the second term with those of the first.
The lowest passing grade for graduate students is B.
C. Repeating Courses: Any candidate for a degree who has passed a course with a
grade of D may, with the permission of his dean. be permitted to take the course over with
a view of obtaining a higher grade carrying honor points. The grade obtained on repetition
of a course will be regarded as the final grade in said course.

X. REPORTING OF GRADES

Grades are reported to the Registrar at the end of the terms. The grade- for the
regular terms will be sent to the parents or guardians.
Grades for the summer terms will be sent to the students only.
On dates as set forth in the current calendar, faculty members shall send to the Office
of the Registrar a delinquency report on all students whose work, in thle opinion of the
faculty members, is falling below a grade of C. The Regislrar shall forward these
reports to the Dean of Students and to the deans of the respective college-. It shall be
the duty of the Dean of Students to notify parents or guardians of all students who are
reported as being delinquent at these periods. He shall also interview all students reported
as being seriously delinquent.
It shall be the duty of all instructors to make grades available for students at the end
of a term. All first term grades must be made available by or before 8:00 o'clock, a.m.,
of the first day of the second term.

Xl. AVERAGES

A. lHow Computed: Averages are determined by computing the ratio ni honor point-
to credits. The student receives honor points according to ihe following cale:
GI(ADE HONOR POINTS PER CREDIT
A\ ...................................................... ............................ 3
I ............ ...................................................... ........... ...... 2
C .............. ............... ...... ....... 1
I) ............ .. ...... ............ ............................ 0
1 ............ ..... ............................................ 0
E ...................................................... ....... 0
E w .... ............................................ .......... ..... 0
X .. ...................... ............................ .. 0
The highest average which the student may earn is 3.
B. Group Averages: Group averages are computed by the method adopted by the
Association of Deans of Men. This method gives the average number of honor points
earned for each credit hour taken by the group during the period of time for which the
average is computed.
C. lonor Roll: An honor roll is published each regular term, consisting of the names
of all regular students having individual averages of 2.5 or more on academic work and
having no failures in non-academic work.
D. Honorable Mention: A list is published each regular term giving honorable
mention to all those regular students making individual averages between 2.30 and 2.49
inclusive on academic work and having no failures in non-academic work.







FAILURES IN STUDIES


XII. FAILURE IN STUDIES

A. When the grades of a student are unsatisfactory, he may be required to drop some
of his studies and substitute those of a lower class. A grade is assigned at the end of
each term in each subject which tie student has carried during that term. If this grade
is not A, B, C, or D, the student is considered to have failed in that subject.
A student who does not pass more than 50 per cent of his work for a term will be
dropped from the University by the Registrar. He will not be permitted to reenter until
one term has elapsed after such failure. Notification is made to the parent or guardian
by registered letter from the Office of the Registrar.
In case of failure in one course only, the student will not be dropped, even though
this failure 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
more of his work during the last quarter of a term, he will not be permitted to reenter
the University until one term has elapsed. If a student is dropped for non-attendance or
resigns, even though failing 50 per cent or more of his work, before the last quarter of a
term. he will be allowed to reenter at the beginning of the next term.
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 vote of the University
Sena'e. A student who, having been dropped permanently for failure in studies, desires
to reenter the University shall file his petition for readmission with the Secretary of the
University Senate. This petition should be accompanied by evidence or testimonials 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." In both cases the student is entitled to honorable dismissal unless his failure
is clearly due to negligence.
Students presenting credits earned while not eligible for registration at the University
of Florida on account of failure in studies may be given provisional credit on reentry.
Credit for this work will be given if the student makes a C average for the two terms
immediately following reinstatement. The work in question must be taken at an accredited
institution and will be evaluated according to the regulations of the University iof Florida.
Students dropped the first time for failure may be permitted to take extension work
during the time they are ineligible to register for residence work provided the approval
of the dean of the college in which the student is registered is secured. Any work
registered for under this provision must be satisfactorily completed before the student can
reenter the University as a resident student.
In case a student comes under the application of the 50 per cent rule at the end of
the semester on account of I's or X's, these must le removed before he may register for
the following term.
B. Complete Failure in One or More Courses: If at any time a student is failing
completely in any course, if he fails repeatedly to hand in the required written work, if
he absents himself without satisfactory excuse, or if in general he shows no disposition
or capacity to do the work required, he may be compelled to drop the course; and if
thereby his total number of hours falls below the minimum required, he will be dropped
from the University and his record marked, "Dropped for failure in studies."







BULLETIN OF BY-LAWS


C. Dropping a Course: Provided a student drops a course before the first five weeks
of a regular term or the first two weeks of the Summer Term have elapsed, he shall not
receive a grade. If, after these periods have elapsed, the student drops a course in which
he is failing, he shall be given a grade of Eiw. If he is passing in the course at the time
it is dropped, he shall be given a grade of IV. The failure fee is charged for courses with
the grade of Ew, only in case the Ewn was assigned to the course in the last quarter of a
term.
XIII. FINAL EXAMINATIONS

A. Term Examinations: Examinations on the material covered in the course are held
at the end of each term. Exemptions from final examinations are not permitted.
B. Length of Examinations: No examination shall continue longer than three hours.

XIV. INTERCOLLEGIATE ACTIVITIES

A. To be eligible to represent the University of Florida in any athletic, forensic,
musical, or other intercollegiate activity, a student must not be on probation for conduct
or attendance and must have passed for the preceding two terms at least three-fourths of
the proportionate percentage of hours required for graduation in the course for which
he is registered, and for the preceding term three-fifths of the proportionate percentage
of hours required for graduation in the course for which he is registered; provided nothing
in this section be construed to exclude a student first entering the University of Florida
from participation in any freshman activity. At least forty-eight hours before a contest,
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 committee 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 in so far as scholarship and residence are concerned.
Deficiencies may be removed by extension work, provided the student is eligible for
such work; or by any o:her method permissible under the rules and regulations of the
University.
A summer term at the University of Florida shall be considered as a regular term for
the application of the above rule.
B. SPECIAL REGULATIONS:

BULLETIN OF BY-LAWS


"BE IT RESOLVED by the BOARD OF CONTROL, That smoking in Universily buill-
ings shall be limited to DORMITORIES, CAFETERIA, SOCIAL HALLS, OFFICES and
LAVATORIES, and
"BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That all members of the faculty, student body and
other employees are requested to cooperate in carrying out this regulation."
C. Regulation Uniform: During both regular terms and summer terms of the University,

REPRIMAND is given by the proper officers of the University, according to the circum-
stances of the particular case.
PROBATION may apply to various conditions, but no student on probation may
represent the University in any intercollegiate contest, nor may he hold any student-body
office or any University position for which remuneration is given.
SUSPENSION excludes the student from the University for a definite time.
EXPULSION is permanent dismissal from the University.

XVII. ABSENCES

Absences count from the first meeting of the class rather than from the date a student
registers for a class.
A. For each semester credit hour in any course, one absence is not reported to th'.
Regis:rar (i.e.. 3 absences in a 3-hour course, 2 in a 2-hour course, etc.). except as pro
vided in Rule F below.
NoTi:: It is expected that these non-reported absences shall, in most cases. be sufficient
to take care of necessary absences due to sickness and extra-curricula activities. In no case
may a student expect a penalty due to deliberate absence or absences to be suspended.
B. NO EXCUSES WILL BE ACCEPTED FOR ABSENCES.
C. Members of the faculty are required to report absences to the Office of the
Registrar, in the manner specified, on blanks provided for this purpose by the Registrar.
D. For the first eight absences reported to the Registrar in any one term (counting
absences in all courses) and for each additional four absences so reported. one hour of
negative credit will be imposed. For exceptions. see Rules E and G below.
E. A student will have two reported absences cancelled for each honor point in excess
of the number of semester credit hours for which he was registered during the term.
Excess honor points may be used to cancel absences only in the term in which they are
earned. The use of honor points to cancel absences does not prevent their use for
graduation.
F. When a student's absences in any one course, including the absences described in
Rule A, amount to more than three times the number of credit hours specified. the student
shall le dropped from the course with a grade of Ewi. As soon as the number of absences







ABSENCES


reaches this point. the instructor must report the dates of all absences to the Registrar on the
special forms provided for this purpose.
In case a student's class standing in a course is sufficient to offset enough absences by
Rule E, the Chairman of the Committee on Attendance will have authority to continue
him in the course, even though his absences in the course number more than three absences
per credit hour.
Non-credit courses will be considered as credit courses for absence purposes, according
to the number of hours the class meets per week.
G. Upon proper petition by the student, any penalty or penalties incurred solely by
excessive absences due to sickness, absences under the Nine-Day Rule, or other unavoidable
causes shall be considered individually by the Committee on Attendance. which has
authority to act, subject to the limitations imposed by the Note to Rule A above.
H. Each term is to be considered as a separate unit in administering these rules.
I. Each absence during the twenty-four hours (excluding Sundays) immediately
preceding or following a holiday shall be counted as two absences. Appeals from this
rule may be addressed to the Committee on Attendance, which has authority to act.
J. Students who have had excessive absences amounting to four or more negative
penalty hours (See Rule D) during a semester will be placed on probation by the Com-
mittee on Attendance during the succeeding term. Should the student violate the terms
of probation, the Committee shall drop him from the University. The Registrar, the
student, and the dean of the college concerned shall be notified of such probation.
K. Absences from Military Science:
1. Classes: The same regulations apply to absences from Military Science courses as
to academic courses.
2. Drill and Dress Parade: All absences from Drill or Dress Parade are required to
be made up before the close of each semester. Should any student be absent six times
during a semester, without approval from proper authority, he will be placed on probation
and so notified. If he is absent thereafter, he will be reported to the Registrar. who will
notify the student that he has been dropped from the University. Any student so dropped
may have his case reviewed by the Committee on Military Affairs, but must make application
for such review in person within forty-eight hours (not including Saturdays, Sundays and
holidays) after the date on which he was dropped.
L. Nine-Day Rule: No student shall absent himself from the University for more than
nine scholastic days per semester in order to participate in athletic or in other extra-
curricula activities.
Schedules of each extra-curricula activity must be approved by the proper faculty
committee, namely: athletic schedules, by the Committee on Athletics; debating and
oratorical schedules, by the Committee on Public Debating; and dramatic and glee club
schedules, by the Committee on Glee Club and Dramatics.
The Nine-Day Rule applies to individual members of the groups rather than to the
group as a whole. Consequently, a schedule of more than nine 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 defined as
any day upon which regular University work is scheduled). Should occasion arise where
the Nine-Day rule seems to work a hardship, appeal may be made to the University Senate.
M. Rules applying to dismissal for failure in studies shall also apply to dismissal for
absences.

C. Possession of a car will be evidence of lack of need unless explained on the basis
of necessity for the student's livelihood.
D. Preference will be given to those having experience.
E. No graduate students will be used except as graduate assistants in positions requiring
the training which the student has secured in college.
F. No student on probation of any kind will be given a position. If, while holding
a position, he is placed on probation, he will be required to resign the position.
G. A student may not hold two University positions the combined salaries of which

in duplicate. This blank will be forwarded to the Chairman of the Self-Help Committee
who will indicate whether the student is eligible for employment. If he is eligible, the
original blank will be approved and returned to the employer's office, and the duplicate
filed with the Self-Help Committee.
2. After the beginning of each term, each department will report on blanks furnished
by the Chairman of the Self-Help Committee the name, labor class, approximate number
