INTRODUCTION

The purpose in printing this book of regulations is to do away with un-
certainly and make definite statements relative to what is expected of students
and faculty members. In most instances the regulations are of long stand-
ing; new ones have been added only in case of felt need, and then only after
many conferences with faculty members, students, and patrons.
In compiling the regulations an effort has been made to make clear state-
ments which will cover most situations. However, in all cases the spirit of the
law will determine its application. The full intention of every regulation is
to secure suitable conditions under which faculty and students may work to-
gether 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 and students will be
welcome.

to nor drop him from any class except after notification from the Registrar's
office.
E. No student will receive credit for any course or examination for which
he is not properly registered.
F. On the recommendation of the head of the department and the approval
of his dean, a course or section may be closed to further registration when
the number registered in it has become as large as can be satisfactorily
handled. Such recommendation shall be transmitted promptly to the Reg-
istrar.
G. Where there is more than one section of a course, the head of the
department concerned is responsible for the assignment of a student to the

BULLETIN OF BY-LAWS


versity of Florida, a complete record of this work shall be sent to the Regis-
trar's office.
K. Visiting Courses: Students registered at the University of Florida may
be permitted to visit courses with the written consent of the instructor in
charge and the approval of the dean of the college in which the student is
registered.
Persons not registered in the University may be permitted to visit courses
with the written consent of the instructor in charge and the approval of the
dean of the college under which the course is given by paying a fee of $1.00
per semester hour for such privilege.
In no case will visitors be given the privilege of taking examinations,
and instructors may not grade written work for auditors of a course. No

III. FEES

A. Registration and Contingent Fee: A registration and contingent fee
of $7.50 per year is charged to all students, both graduate and under-gradu-
ate, of the University.
B. Late Registration Fee: Any student not presenting himself for regis-
tration on the date set for his class will be charged a fee of $5.00 for late
registration. This fee will not be waived for any consideration.
C. Laboratory Fee: A fee is required in advance for each course that
includes laboratory work to cover the cost of consumable materials, wear and
tear of apparatus, and similar items. The amount of such fee will be found
in the current Bulletin of the college in which the course is offered.
D. Breakage Deposit Fee: A breakage deposit fee of $5.00 is required of
each student using a locker and laboratory apparatus in the College of Phar-
macy or in the departments of Chemistry, of Electrical Engineering, or of Bi-
ology. This deposit must be made at the Business Manager's office. Refunds
will be made once a year after the student has checked in the apparatus to the
satisfaction of the department concerned. No charge will be made from
this fund for materials used, nor for normal wear and tear, these being covered
in the general laboratory fee.
E. Dormitory Breakage Fee: A deposit of $10.00 per year is required
of all students rooming in the dormitories. This amount, less breakage and
cost of lost keys, will be returned to the student when he moves out of the
dormitory.
F. Infirmary Fee: All undergraduate students are charged an Infirmary
Fee of $9.00 per year. In case of illness this fee secures for the student a
bed in the Infirmary and the services of professional nurses and of the Uni-
versity Physician, except when major operations are involved. To secure this
medical service, students must report in person to the nurse in charge of the
Infirmary. The Physician in charge will be at the Infirmary daily for con-
sultation and treatment from 12:00 to 1:00 o'clock, and the Resident Phy-
sician from 7:30 to 9:00 o'clock in the morning and from 4:00 to 7:30 o'clock







FEES


in the afternoon. The Infirmary will be open at all hours for admission of
patients and treatment of emergency cases. Board in the Infirmary is charged
at the rate of $1.50 per day.
Graduate students not wishing to avail themselves of this service are not
required to pay the fee, but, if they do not do so, will be charged for services
rendered.
G. Student Activity Fee: A student activity fee of $23.60, payable on
entrance, has been voted by the students. This money is used to foster and
maintain athletic sports, student publications, literary publications, literary
and debating societies, and other student activities. All undergraduate students
are required to pay this fee; those regularly enrolled in the Graduate School
will be excused from payment if they do not wish to participate in any of the
privileges it covers.
When students pay this fee, they should by all means keep the receipt
which is in the form of a ticket entitling them to one Seminole, the Alligator
for one year, and free admission to such football, basketball, and baseball
games, tennis, track and wrestling meets, debates, oratorical contests, musical
concerts and Lyceum attractions as are designated by the Board of Control.
This ticket is not transferable and will be taken up and cancelled if pre-
sented by anyone other than its rightful owner.
Juniors pay a $1.00 SPECIAL JUNIOR PROM fee instead of the $1.00
Military fee.
Freshmen pay seventy-five cents for a Special Cap Fee, making a total of
$24 35.

degrees.

semester examination period. To take an examination or re-examination at

Registrar and pay a fee of $2.00 for each subject, although, in case there are
more than two subjects, the maximum charge at any period of examination is
$5.00.
J. Special Examination Fee: A fee of $5.00 is charged for each examina-
tion taken at a time other than that regularly scheduled.
K. Change of Course Fee: A student once registered will not be per-
mitted to make any change in studies except during the first two weeks of
the first semester, the registration period of the second semester, or during
the first week of the Summer Session without the payment of a fee of $2.00.
Where a change of section is made at the request of the head of a depart-
ment, this fee will not be charged.
L. Transfer of College Fee: Where a transcript is required a fee of
$1.00 is charged students for transferring from one college to another within
the University. If the change is made at any other time than at the regular
registration period, this fee is $5.00.
M. Military Fee: A fee of $1.00 per year is charged all students register-
ing for the Basic Course in Military Science and Tactics.

BULLETIN OF BY-LAWS


0. Refunds: After a student has attended classes three days, no refunds
of any University fees will be made except the unused portion of laboratory
and breakage fees.
IV. TUITION

A. College of Law: In the College of Law a tuition fee of $40.00 is
charged every student. Half of this fee ($20.00) is payable each semester.
B. College of Commerce and Journalism:
1. A special registration fee of $10.00 will be charged all regular
students registered in the College of Commerce and Journalism.
2. A fee of $1.00 per semester hour will be charged for other stu-
dents taking the following courses: all courses in Journalism, and
all courses in Business Administration not marked "E."
C. Non-resident Students: All students in any college of the University,
except graduate fellows and assistants, who are not legal residents of Florida
are charged a non-resident fee of $100.00 per year, payable $50.00 each semes-
ter. This fee is in addition to all other regular fees, including those for
tuition.
The burden of registering under proper residence is placed upon the stu-
dent. If there is any question as to his legal residence being in Florida, the
matter should be brought to the attention of the President or his duly con-
stituted representatives and passed upon prior to registration or the payment
of fees. Any student who registers improperly under this rule shall be
required to pay not only the non-resident fee, but, in addition, a penalty
of $10.00. Students who do not pay the non-resident fee within thirty days
after they have been notified that it has been assessed against them will have
their registration in the University cancelled.
No person shall be considered eligible to register in the University as a
resident of the State of Florida unless he has been a bona fide resident in the
State during the twelve months next preceding the date of his registration.
The residence of a minor shall follow that of his legal guardian. If the non-
resident student be a minor, his legal residence for the purpose of this rule
shall not be considered established in the State of Florida until the expira-
tion of twelve months after the appointment of a resident guardian.

V. REGULATIONS CONCERNING DEGREES, GRADUATION, ETC.

A. Degrees: The special requirements for the various degrees conferred
by the University will be found in the Bulletin of each of the schools and col-
leges. The following regulations apply to all colleges:
1. Two degrees of the same rank, e.g., A.B. and B.S., will not be conferred
upon the same individual unless the second degree represents at least
thirty credit hours of additional work.
2. Two semesters of work at the University of Florida, or three summer
sessions, will satisfy the residence requirements for the Bachelor's degree.
3. For the Master's degree two semesters or four summer sessions are neces-
sary to satisfy the residence requirements.







REGULATIONS CONCERNING DEGREES, GRADUATION, ETC. 567

4. Students are required to complete the last thirty credit hours (27 for
the Normal Diploma; 28 in the College of Law) applied towards the
degree during regular residence in the college from which the student
is to be graduated. This may be varied only upon written petition
approved by the faculty of the college concerned, but in no case may
the amount of extension work permitted exceed the provisions of
section L of this paragraph. (See section L, page 568.)
5. Advanced standing may be secured on work offered from accredited
institutions of the same rank as the University of Florida. No credit
will be given for any work transferred from other institutions where the
grade is below C.
6. Students seeking admission from either accredited or non-accredited
institutions will be considered upon their own individual merits.
7. With the approval of the dean concerned, the head of a department may
grant a student permission to take an examination for credit upon work
done at a non-accredited institution, provided, however, that advanced
work in the subject has not been taken.
B. Choice of Subjects: Subject to proper preparation, the choice of the
college which he will enter and of the curriculum which he will pursue in it
rests with the individual student. The group of studies selected, however,
must belong to one of the regular years in the chosen curriculum exactly as
announced in the Bulletin of the college for the year in which the student
entered, unless special reasons, approved by the dean of the college in which
the student is registered, exist for deviating from this arrangement.
1. Sequence of Courses: Students are required to take the work as ar-
ranged in the various curricula for the degree which they desire. Only
under very exceptional circumstances will a student be permitted to
take advanced work before the work of a lower class is entirely com-
pleted. This regulation is administered by the deans and heads of the
various departments.
2. Failure in a Required Course: When for any reason a student is per-
mitted to drop a required course during a semester, or fails in a required
course for the semester, he must take this course the next semester it is
offered. In case of conflict with other required courses, the course drop-
ped or failed must take precedence.
C. Maximum and Minimum Credits: The minimum load of any student
shall be twelve (12) hours. (Nine in the College of Law.)
The maximum load, including work by correspondence or extension, shall
be regulated according to the following table:
A student who during the previous semester, or summer session, had an
honor point average of:
Maximum Load
Regular Session Summer Session
Less than 1 ............................. ........................ 16 hours 9 hours
1 up to, but not including. 2 ............................ 19 10 "
2 up to, but not including, 3 ............................ 21 11 "
3 .................................... .... ......................... 24 12 "







BULLETIN OF BY-LAWS


Mature students who are regularly employed may register for less than
twelve (12) credit hours with the approval of the dean of the college. The
Registrar shall be responsible for seeing that this schedule is adhered to.
D. Laboratory Work: Laboratory work shall be credited as follows: not
more than three hours, nor less than two shall be required for one hour credit.
The number required shall rest with each department.
Exceptions to this rule may be permitted by the head of the department
and the dean of the college concerned.
E. Credit for Year Courses: A passing grade in the first semester's work
in a year course does not entitle a student to any credit until he has com-
pleted the work of the second semester with one of the grades A, B, C, or D.
F. Credit for Beginners in Languages: Students offering high school!
credit in a modern language course cannot receive credit for a beginner's
course in this language in the University.
G. Credit for Geometry and Trignometry: Students presenting entrance
credits in either solid geometry or trigonometry may not obtain credit for cor-
responding courses in mathematics (Ms. 83 and 85) in college.
H. Credits and Standing: Each college of the University provides a def-
inite number of credits which the student must earn in order to be graduated.
In addition to these credits, the student must earn a number of honor points
equal to the number of credits required for graduation.
I. Application for Degrees: Seniors who expect to be graduated must file
application for the degree or diploma in the Registrar's office on or before
the fourth Saturday of the regular session or the second Saturday of the Sum-
mer Session in which they expect to obtain the degree or diploma. Students
who do not obtain their diplomas at the time first expected must make a new
application in the semester or Summer Session when they are again supposed
to receive them.
J. Time Limit: To receive a Bachelor's degree, a senior must have com-
pleted all the work required for graduation by ten o'clock in the morning of
the Wednesday preceding Commencement, or of the last Monday of the Sum-
mer Session.
K. Double Registration: Students who have previously completed the
requirements for a degree or diploma in residence in the college in which the
degree is to be granted will be allowed to obtain that degree at such time as
they properly apply for it without additional expense of registration.
Students taking a combined course will be required to make a double
registration during the semester in which they expect to receive any degree.
L. Correspondence Work Permitted:
1. Students will not be permitted to take more than twelve (12) semes-
ter hours by correspondence study or in extension classes during any
academic year.
2. Students will not be permitted to take more than nine (9) semester
hours work by correspondence study during the summer vacation
period.
3. The Board of Control has ruled that in the future the amount of
extension work students will be allowed credit for towards a degree







MILITARY SCIENCE


al the University of Florida shall not exceed one-fourth of the
amount required for the degree. In enforcing this regulation the
following rules shall apply:
a. The rule shall apply literally to all students who have not enrolled
in residence prior to the Summer Session of 1931.
b. All persons who may graduate at the end of the Summer Session
of 1933 under the old rule may be permitted to do so.
c. All persons enrolled in residence prior to the Summer Session
of 1931 who do not graduate at the end of the Summer Session
of 1933 will be allowed all credit earned by extension under the
o'd rules up to that time. However, if, at that time, the credit
earned by extension equals, or is in excess of one-fourth of the
amount required for the degree, students concerned will not be
allowed to do any additional extension work.
4. Students will not be permitted to take more than twelve (12) of the
last thirty-six (36) semester hours necessary for a baccalaureate de-
gree by correspondence study or in extension classes. The student
must he in residence for at least the semester or Summer Session
in which he receives this degree.
5. No resident student may enroll in extension classes if a resident
course is offered at the same time.
6. 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 re-enter the University as a resident student.
7. Simultaneous registration in residence and extension or correspond-
ence courses is permitted only when approved by the dean con-
cerned. When a student registers for a correspondence or extension
course for college credit at the University of Florida, a complete
record of this work shall be sent to the Registrar's office.

VI. MILITARY SCIENCE

( R. 0. T. C.)

A. General: The Reserve Officers' Training Corps offers a four-year course
in Military Science and Tactics as prescribed for Infantry and Field Artillery.
Students registered in the College of Agriculture, Pharmacy, Education and
Engineering, and in the A.B. course in the College of Arts and Sciences are
assigned to the Artillery; those registered in the College of Commerce and
Journalism, in the School of Architecture and Allied Arts, in the B.S. and
Pre-Medical courses in the College of Arts and Sciences, and any students not
otherwise mentioned, are assigned to the Infantry.
B. The Basic Course: The Basic Course covers the first two years of this
instruction, and satisfactory completion of it is required of all students ex-
cept the following:







BULLETIN OF BY-LAWS


1. Students who are twenty-one years of age at the time of entering upon
their college work at the University of Florida.
2. Students unable to drill by reason of physical disability, as certified to
by the University Physician.
3. Students whose military work elsewhere is accepted by the Professor
of Military Science and Tactics as fulfilling the requirements.
4. Students admitted to the University of Florida holding a commission
in the Army of the United States.
5. Students who enter the University with advance standing from other
accredited institutions as follows: students who enter with one year of col-
lege work are required to take only one year of the Basic Course; students
who have had two years of college work are exempt from Military Science.
6. Students taking courses of a duration of one year or less.
7. Students who are citizens of foreign countries.
Students exempt from Military Science for any reason whatever must, in
order to receive a degree, offer an equal number of hours of other course
work in lieu of Military Science. Choice of these courses must in all cases
be approved by the dean of the college in which the student is registered.
The Registrar is authorized to administer the above rules.
C. The Advanced Course: Students who complete the Basic Course and
are selected by the Professor of Military Science and Tactics and the Presi-
dent of the University may elect the Advanced Course, which may lead to a
commission in the Officers' Reserve Corps of the United States Army. Stu-
dents registering in this course are required to carry it to completion.
D. Attendance: Regulations covering absences from Military Science
classes, drills, and dress parades will be found under the section on absences.
E. Credit from Other Institutions: Credits for Military Science from
other institutions shall in no case exceed the amount of credit allowed by
those institutions, or the amount of credit allowed for a similar course at the
University of Florida. No college credit towards a degree is allowed (although
the military requirements may be waived) unless the work was regular co'lege
course work taken in a recognized college or university.

VII. GRADES AND HONOR POINTS

A. Marking System: Results of work are recorded in the Registrar's office
as follows:
A-Exceptionally high quality, valued at three quality points for each
credit.
B-Good, valued at two quality points for each credit.
C-Fair, valued at one quality point for each credit.
D-Unsatisfactory, indicating a deficiency and giving no quality points,
but giving credit for graduation.
E-Failure.
I-Incomplete.
R-Conditioned. (Given only to students classified as freshmen or
sophomores.)
X-Absent from examination.







REPORTING OF GRADES


B. Explanations: A student must have a grade of at least C on all work
offered for advanced standing. In addition, to obtain the degree applied for,
he must earn at the University of Florida as many honor points as credits
earned at the University of Florida.
The grade of E means that, in order to be credited, the work must be re-
peated in class.
The grade of I means that some relatively small part of the term's work
remains undone because of sickness or of some other reason satisfactory to the
instructor. This work must be completed within two months after the student
renters 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 two months allowed, it will be changed to E.
The grade R denotes a condition with re-examination privileges at the next
re-examination period during residence in the University. If the re-examina-
tion is not taken at that time, or is taken and not passed, the grade R will
automatically be changed to E. Only freshmen and sophomores may be given
a grade of R.
The 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.
D. Transfers from One College to Another Within the University: In
case a student transfers from one college to another within the University, he
shall be required to meet the honor-point requirements of the class with which
he is graduating or in which he is enrolled.
E. Continuous Attendance: If a student's attendance is continuous, he will
be permitted to graduate according to thi catalog under which he entered.
If, however, there are breaks in attendance aggregating more than tluct
years, the student will be required to fulfill the requirements of the catalog
under which he re-registered. As long as the student attends the University
as much as one semester or Summer Session during each year, attendance
is deemed continuous.

VIII. REPORTING OF GRADES

Grades are reported to the Registrar at the mid-semester as well as at
the end of the semester. The mid-semester grades and the semester grades
are reported to the parent and to the dean of the college in which the stu-
dent is registered.
No semester grades will be sent to a student unless he leaves with the
Registrar an addressed, stamped envelope. This regulation applies also to
students of the Summer Session.
On the fourth Saturday of every month faculty members shall send to the
office of the Registrar a delinquency report on all freshmen and sophomores
who. in the opinion of the faculty members, are falling below a grade of C.







BULLETIN OF BY-LAVS


The Registrar, after making a record of these reports, shall forward them to
the Dean of Students, whose duty it will be to interview all students so re-
ported. The Registrar shall send a summary of these reports to the dean of
the college in which the student is enrolled.
It shall be the duty of all instructors to make grades available for students
at the end of the semester and at the end of. the mid-semester period. These
grades must be posted in a conspicuous place in the classrooms or on the de-
partment bulletin board. All first semester grades must be posted by or be-
fore 8:00 o'clock, a m., of the first day of the second semester.
Each faculty member in charge of any extra-curricula activity shall report
to the Registrar at the end of each semester the names of all students taking
part in that activity.
IX. AVERAGES

A. How Computed: Averages are computed as the ratio of honor points
to credits, with a value of 3, 2, 1, and 0 assigned to A, B, C, and D, respectively,
and of -1 to R and I, and of -2 to X and E. Thus the highest possible
average is 3.
B. Group Averages: Group averages are computed by the method adopted
by the Association of Deans of Men. This gives the average number of honor
points for each credit hour taken by the group during the period of time for
which the average is desired.
C. Honor Roll: An honor roll is published each semester and consists of
the names of all regular students having individual averages of 2.3 or more
on academic work and no failures on non-academic work.
D. Recording Honors: A record of all medals, prizes, and other honors
awarded to students shall be filed with the Registrar.

X. FAILURE IN STUDIES

A. wThlt Lhie glades 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 mid-semester and at the end of each semester in each subject
which the student is carrying. If this grade is not A, B, C, or D, the student
is considered to be failing in that subject.
A student who fails to pass in more than 50 percent of his work for the
mid-semester, for the semester, or for the Summer Session will be dropped
from the University by the Registrar and will be notified at his University
address. Notification is made to the student by registered letter from the
Registrar's office.
Freshmen may not be dropped for failure under this rule until the end of
the first semester of residence. In case of failure of a freshman at the end
of his first semester, he will be dropped as above stated.
When a student is dropped for failure at mid-semester, he will not be
permitted to reenter the University until the beginning of the following semes-
ter.
In case the student is dropped at the end of the semester, he will not be
permitted to reenter until one full semester has elapsed after such failure.







FAILURE IN STUDIES


In interpreting the above rule, a Summer Session shall be counted as a
semester.
Students who are dropped twice for failure (the failures need not be con-
secutive) will be dropped permanently from the University and can be re-
admitted only by vote of the University Council.
A student who has been dropped twice for failure and desires to reenter
shall file his petition with the Secretary of the University Council. This pe-
tition should be accompanied by any evidence or testimonials which might
have weight in influencing the decision of the Council.
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 pro-
visional credit on reentry. Credit for this work will he given if the student
makes a C average for the semester immediately following reinstatement. The
work in question must be taken at an accredited institution and will be evalu-
ated according to the regulations of the University of Florida.
Students dropped the first time for failure may be permitted to take ex-
tension 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
lie satisfactorily completed before the student can re-enter the University as
a resident student.
In case a student comes under the application of the fifty percent rule at
the end of the semester on account of Incompletes, these must be removed by
the time of the beginning of the registration period for the following semester.
When this condition prevails at mid-semester, a student must remove the In-
completes within 48 hours after notification from the Registrar's office.
No special examinations may be given in order to evade the application of
this rule.
B. Complete Failure int One or More Subjects: If at any time a student
is failing completely in any subject, if he fails repeatedly to hand in the re-
quired written work, if he absents himself without satisfactory excuse from a
test, or if in general he shows no disposition or capacity to do the work re-
quired, he may be compelled to drop the course; and if thereby his total num-
ber of hours falls below the minimum required, he will be dropped from the
University and his record marked "Dropped for failure in studies."
C. Dropping a Subject: If a student drops a course while failing therein,
the recorded grade shall be Ew. In case this is done before the mid-semester,
the failure shall not count beyond the mid-semester in determining whether
a student has failed to pass 50 percent of his work for the semester. For the
regular session this grade becomes effective five weeks after the beginning of
each semester. For the Summer Session it becomes effective two weeks after
the beginning of the session.

XI. RE-EXAMINATIONS

Th grade R entitles freshmen and sophomores to a re-examination, subject
to the following conditions:
A. Only one re-examination is allowed in each course.
B. A re-examination must be taken on or before the next scheduled re-
examination date during which the student is in attendance at the University.
If taken at other than the regularly scheduled time, the student must pay
a special examination fee of $5.00 and secure the consent of the instructor.
Spring re-examinations may be deferred until the fall period upon petition
of the student to his dean and to the Registrar. In the absence of such pe-
tition, students who do not take a re-examination before registering for the fall
term automatically lose the privilege of re-examination. The grade on a re-
examination must be C or above in order for the student to pass, but no honor
points will be allowed on a course in which credit is thus obtained. Students
are required to pay the fee and make application to the Registrar on the
dates set in the University calendar.
C. Failure to apply by dates set in the University calendar will cause
the student to lose the privilege of re-examination, as the time between these
dates and those set for the examinations is necessary to obtain questions and
to arrange a general schedule for the examinations.
D. Students registering for the fall session are held responsible for taking
a required re-examination during the three days preceding fall registration.
E. With the semester grades sent to the parents by the Registrar is in-
cluded a card to be used by the student for making application for any re-
examination to which he may be entitled. Such cards must be deposited in
the Registrar's office by the dates set in the calendar, and must bear the Cash-
ier's receipt of payment of the re-examination fees.
F. Failure to take re-examinations on scheduled time causes the grade R
to be changed to E, with the loss of the privilege of re-examination.
G. Students may not remove conditions in the first semester of year
courses by averaging the grades of the second semester with those of the first.

XII. FINAL EXAMINATIONS

A. Semester Examinations: Examinations on the ground covered are held
at the end of each semester. Exemptions from final examinations are not
permitted.
B. Length of Examinations: No examination shall continue longer than
three hours.
C. Deferred Examinations: Upon recommendation of his dean a student
may defer a final examination to a time not later than the next re-examination
period, provided proper notification is made at the office of the Registrar.

XIII. ATHLETICS

To be eligible to represent the University of Florida in any athletic, musical,
forensic, or other intercollegiate activity, a student must not be on proba-
tion and must have passed more than 50 percent of the work for which he was







CONDUCT


last registered in the University of Florida; and must have passed at least
nine (9) credit hours (a student registered in the College of Law must have
passed at least six (6) credit hours) ; 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 de-
livered in person or by special messenger to the Registrar's office. The fac-
ulty committee having charge of any student activity coming under the above
may designate some faculty member to be responsible for the reports.
Deficiencies may be removed by the re-examination privilege when earned;
or by extension or correspondence work, provided the student is eligible for
such work; or by any other method permissable under the rules and regula-
tions of the University.
A Summer Session at the University of Florida shall be considered as a
semester in the application of the above rule.
To continue to be eligible for participation in any of the above activities,
a student must be passing in more than 50 percent of his studies according
to the latest reports in the Registrar's office. He must not be on probation
for any delinquency in conduct or attendance.
B. Instructors shall, upon request of the Director of Athletics, furnish
him information regarding the progress of the members of athletic teams
enrolled in their classes.
C. Schedules: No intramural game shall be scheduled at an hour that
would cause a participant to miss a class, or before 4:00 o'clock p. m. of any
day except Saturday.
No intercollegiate game shall be scheduled during a final examination or
re-examination period, as announced in the current Bulletin of General In-
formation.
D. Southern Conference Eligibility Rule: "Rule 2. No person shall par-
ticipate in intercollegiate athletics at an institution until after the expiration
of twelve months from the date of his matriculation there, and until he shall
have completed the scholastic requirements of that institution. A freshman
who participates in intercollegiate athletics must have completed the full
scholastic requirements for the entire freshman year before being eligible for
participation in succeeding years."

XIV. CONDUCT

A. Offenses Against Good Conduct: All students will be held responsible
for conformity to all the 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 treated with severity:
1. Disrespect to an officer of the University.
2. Wanton destruction of property.
3. Gambling.
4. Drinking or having liquor in possession.







BULLETIN OF BY-LAWS


B. Hazing: No student will be regularly entered in the University until
he has been matriculated and has signed the following pledge: "I hereby
promise upon my word of honor, without any mental reservations whatsoever,
to refrain from all forms of hazing while I am connected with the University
of Florida."
By hazing is meant actions of students which unduly harass, annoy, or
make ridiculous one student for the amusement or satisfaction of other students.
Such conduct is held to be a violation of order and personal liberty.
C. Smoking: Because of the fire hazard involved, smoking is not per-
mitted in the University classrooms, laboratories, hallways of buildings, Li-
brary, Auditorium, or any other building where the "No Smoking" sign is
posed.
D. Regulation Uniform: During both winter and summer sessions of the
University, all students appearing on the athletic fields, tennis courts, track.
swimming pool, or gymnasium must wear regulation uniforms. A special place
will be provided by the Department of Physical Education for those desiring
to take sun baths. The office of the Athletic Department shall enforce this
regulation.
E. Degrees of Discipline: The degrees of discipline are:
1. Reprimand.
2. Probation on condition.
3. Suspension.
4. Expulsion.
REPRIMAND is given by the proper officers of the University, according
to the circumstances of the particular case.
PROBATION may be on 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.

XV. ABSENCES

A. For each semester credit hour in any course one absence is not re-
ported to the Registrar, except as provided in Rule F below.
NOTE: 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 that a penalty due to
deliberate absence or absences shall be suspended. If absences for sickness
and under the Nine-Day Rule are not sufficient in themselves to incur a pen-
alty, but such absences together with only one deliberate absence are suffi-
cient to incur a penalty, the Committee on Attendance has no power to
suspend the carrying out of the penalty.
B. NO EXCUSES WILL BE ACCEPTED FOR ABSENCES.
C. Members of the faculty are required to report absences in excess of
the non-reported absence daily, as incurred, to the Registrar's office. Blanks
will be provided by the Registrar for this purpose.







ABSENCES


D. For the first eight (8) absences reported to the Registrar in any one
semester (counting absences in all courses) and for each additional four (4)
absences so reported, one hour of negative credit will be imposed. For ex-
ceptions, see Rules E and H 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 reg-
istered during the semester. Excess honor points may be used to cancel ab-
sences only in the semester in which they are earned. The use of honor points
to cancel absences does not prevent their use for graduation.
F. Students obtaining more than the equivalent of three full weeks of
absences, including absences in Rule A, in any one course will be dropped
from the course with a grade of E. As soon as the number of absences
reaches this point, the faculty members must report them to the Registrar.
In non-credit courses where the total absences are equal to or more than
20 percent of the number of class meetings, the student will be required to
drop the class and will be given a grade of E.
G. Upon proper petition, any penalty or penalties incurred solely by ex-
cessive absences due to sickness, absences under the Nine-Day Rule, or other
unavoidable causes shall be considered individually by the Committee on At-
tendance, which has authority to act, subject to the limitations imposed by
the Note in Rule A above. In case a student's latest reported grade in a course
is sufficient to offset enough absences by Rule E, the Chairman of the Com-
mittee will have authority to continue him in the course, even though his
absences are more than the equivalent of three weeks.
H. For the administration of these rules, a Summer Session shall count
as a semester. In interpreting Rule F for the Summer Session, three times
the number of credits to be gained will be the maximum number of absences
allowed for a single course.
I. Each semester is to be considered as a separate unit in administering
these rules.
J. Each absence during the twenty-four hours (excluding Sundays) im-
mediately 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.
K. Students who have had excessive absences (4 or more hours penalty)
during a semester will be placed on probation by the Committee on Attend-
ance during the succeeding semester. Should the student violate the terms
of probation, the Committee will drop him from the University. The Reg-
istrar, the student, and the dean of the college concerned shall be notified
of such probation.
Rules applying to dismissal for failure in studies shall also apply to dis-
missal for absences.
Absences count from the first meeting of the class rather than from the
da-e a student registers for a c!ass.
L. Absences from Military Science:
1. Classes: Same regulations as apply to other courses.
2. Drill and Dress Parade: In order to make drill and dress parade a







BULLETIN OF BY-LAWS


success, students are expected to attend all formations. It is obvious that
when any large number is absent, the depleted ranks materially interfere
with efficient instructions, resulting in the ones present being most penalized.
Therefore, all absences are required to be made up before the close of each
semester. Should any student be absent six (6) 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
and will be notified by him 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) from date
on which he was dropped.
M. Nine-Day Rule: No student shall absent himself from the University
for more than nine (9) scholastic days per semester in order to participate
in athletic or in o:her extra-curricula activities.
Schedules of each extra-curricula activity must be approved by the proper
faculty committee, namely; the Committee on Athletics over athletic schedules;
the Committee on Public Debating over debating and oratorical schedules;
the Committee on Glee Club and Dramatics over Glee Club and dramatic
schedules, etc.
Should occasion arise in which the Nine-Day Rule might seem to work a
hardship, an appeal may be made to the University Council.
The Nine-Day Rules applies to individual members of the groups here in
question. Groups composed of an entirely different personnel are treated as
separate teams; consequently a schedule of more than nine (9) days for any
activity is not prohibited, provided that no student is absent from the campus
more than that number of scholastic days per semester.
The Committee has defined "scholastic day" as any day upon which reg-
ular University work is scheduled.

XVI. SELF-HELP

In view of the fact that there are comparatively few positions on the campus
and in the City of Gainesville, it is strongly urged that no freshman come to
the University with the expectation of depending very largely upon his earn-
ings during his first college year.
The Committee on Self-Help, of which the Dean of Students is chairman,
undertakes to award positions on the campus to deserving UPPER-CLASS-
MEN. The following conditions will govern it in making assignments:
A. The scholastic record of the student will be taken into consideration.
In general, no student having an average less than C will be considered.
B. Preference will be given to those having experience.
C. The financial condition of the student will be taken into consideration.
D. No graduate students will be used except as graduate assistants in
positions requiring the training which the student has secured in college.
E. No student on probation of any kind will be given a position. If,
while holding one, he is placed on probation, he will be required to resign
the position.










CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS


F. A student may not hold two University positions the combined sal-
aries of which exceed $100.00 per year.
Unskilled student labor is paid for at the present time at the rate of thirty
cents per hour; skilled labor is proportionately compensated. Undergraduate
laboratory assistants are paid by the hour according to the following schedule:
Sophomores, 35 cents. Juniors, 40 cents. Seniors, 45 cents.

XVII. CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS

Following is the minimum number of semester credits and honor points
for advanced standing:

Sophomore Classification ............ 18 (College of Engineering ............. 20)
Junior Classification .................... 52 (College of Engineering ................ 58)
(Junior Law ................................... 15)
Senior Classification .................... 86 (College of Engineering ................ 86)
(Senior Law ................ -................... 43)

The regulation as to honor points will be put into effect with the class
entering in the fall of 1931.
Until all entrance credits have been satisfied, a student shall not rank higher
than a freshman; a student deficient in any freshman work shall not rank
higher than a sophomore; one deficient in sophomore work, not higher than
a junior. A special student is not considered as belonging to any regular
class. No student under twenty-one years of age may register as a special
student without the consent of parent or guardian and the dean of his college.
When special students make up their deficiency, they may become regular
students, and candidates for a degree.
Special Students: Students desiring to take special courses may be allowed
to take those classes for which they are prepared. The number of such
students in a college is, however, restricted to an extremely small percent of
the total enrollment. These students are subject to all the laws and regulations
of the University. Special courses do not lead to a degree. The College of
Law does not admit special students.
The University permits special courses to be taken solely in order to pro-
vide for the occasional exceptional requirements of individual students. Ac-
cordingly, no minor is permitted to enter as a special student except in the
College of Agriculture. A special student will be required to pursue a reg-
ular course, even though he may expect to attend the University only a year
or two.
Adult Specials: Persons twenty-one or more years of age who cannot
satisfy the entrance requirements but who give evidence of ability to profit
by the courses they may take, may, under exceptional circumstances, be ad-
mitted as "Adult Specials."

the above regulations shall make it liable to exclusion from social ac-
tivities during the semester involved.
I. Violation of the foregoing regulations by a student organization or
group of the University may result in a denial of further social privileges, and,
if the Committee on Student Organizations deems such violation a serious one,
the matter shall be turned over to the Committee on Discipline for action.

XIX. FRATERNITIES, SOCIETIES AND CLUBS

A. Committee on Fraternities, Societies and Clubs: There shall be a
Committee on Fraternities, Societies and Clubs composed of four members
of the faculty and three members of the student body. The student mem-
befs shall be members of the senior class in good standing and shall be
chosen as follows: one by the Interfraternity Conference, one by the Pan-
hellenic Council and one selected by the Executive Council of the student
body. The student members shall be elected from the Junior class during the
latter part of the spring semester.
All reports called for from fraternities, societies, and clubs shall be made
to the Dean of Students, who is ex-officio chairman of this committee.
B. Social Fraternities: The term "social fraternity" as used in these regu-
lations shall include all chapters of national social fraternities on the campus,
and all chapters of local fraternities organized and operated for the same
general purposes and in the same general manner as chapters of national
social fraternities.
1. Any organization desiring faculty recognition as a social fraternity as
above described shall comply with the following requirements:
a. Within fifteen days after the opening of the fall semester, a list of
all active members and pledges shall be submitted to the Com-
mittee on Fraternities, Societies and Clubs.
b. The insignia of the organization shall be approved, so that they
will not conflict with that of existing groups.
c. The organization shall have at least fifteen active members.

the organization, shall be appointed to act as its Adviser. The
name of the person so chosen shall be reported to the Dean of
Students and approved by him.
e. The organization shall be incorporated under the laws of Florida.
f. The organization shall have a definite, approved financial program.
g. Before petitioning a national fraternity for a charter, a local or-
ganization must first secure the permission of the Committee on
Fraternities, Societies and Clubs, and must have been recognized
by the committee for at least three years before applying for such
permission. The consent of the committee can be secured only by
satisfying its members that the local organization is stable; that
it has satisfactory scholastic, social and moral standards; that the







FRATERNITIES, SOCIETIES AND CLUBS


fraternity which they desire to petition is a desirable one; and that
the fraternity field is not overcrowded.
2. All Social Fraternities as above defined shall operate under the fol-
lowing regulations:
a. At the opening of the school year each fraternity operating a
chapter house shall present a set of house rules to the Dean of
Students and shall immediately report to him any subsequent
changes in these rules.
h. The statutes of the State of Florida relative to occupants of fra-
ternity houses are as follows:
897. Property exempt from taxation. The following property
shall be exempt from taxation:
Third. Such property of educational, literary, benevolent, charitable
and scientific institutions within this State as shall be actually oc-
cupied and used by them solely for the purpose for which they have
been or may be organized, but property of such institutions which is
rented wholly or in part and the rents, issues and profits only used
by such institutions shall not be exempt from taxation, nor shall'
any property held by them as an investment or for speculation be
exempt from taxation.
898. Exemption of property of women's clubs, American Legion.
fraternities, sororities, etc. All property in this State now owned
and exclusively used by the regularly constituted women's clubs
of Florida, or American Legion, or the duly constituted chapters,
inns, or other associations duly chartered by national college fra-
ternities or national college sororities, located and existing at col-
leges and universities in the State of Florida at State institutions
or duly chartered as such colleges or universities by the State of
Florida, used solely as their club house or home, is hereby defined
to mean such property as is contemplated by Section 1, of Article
IX, of the Constitution of Florida and is hereby declared to be
exempt from all taxation.
c. Soon after the close of each semester the Registrar shall publish
the grade averages of all the fraternities on the campus. The av-
erages of both the initiated men and the pledges shall be computed,
but each shall be computed separately. A fraternity may drop
pledges as late as, but not later than, two weeks before the close
of a semester without having their grades count in the final average
of its pledges provided notice is immediately transmitted to the
Registrar; but pledges dropped for poor scholarship may not be
reinstated until the Registrar certifies that they have attained the
general University average.
d. A faculty cup is awarded to the fraternity which makes the high-
est average for the year-this average to be the combined average
of both members and pledges.
C. Social Societies: All societies organized for social purposes shall be
known as Social Societies and shall be subject to the following regulations:







BULLETIN OF BY-LAWS


1. Within sixty days after the opening of the fall semester, a list of all
active members and pledges shall be submitted to the Committee on
Fraternities, Societies and Clubs.

aid in connection with a test or examination in any college course.
B. Stealing: All misdemeanors coming under this head committed within
the City of Gainesville are handled by the Honor Court; all misdemeanors
of this nature committed outside of the City of Gainesville are handled by
the Committee on Discipline.
C. Failure to Report Any Violation of the Two Preceding Acts.
A violation of any part of this Code subjects the individual concerned to
an immediate trial before the Honor Court.


584









REGISTRATION OF AUTOMOBILES


The Honor Court is composed of students elected from the various colleges
at the general student body election. Each Court elects its own Chancellor and
its Clerk. The meetings of the Court are secret. If the accused is found inno-
cent by the Court, he is immediately cleared of all charges, and no publicity
is given concerning the action of the Court. If the accused is found to be
guilty, and makes no immediate appeal to the President of the University,
the Court shall, at its discretion:
1. Reprimand and warn the culprit, if there are mitigating circumstances,
the violation is not flagrant and it is the first offense; or
2. Suspend, if the guilt is clear, the culprit pleads guilty and it is the
first offense; or
3. Expel, if the violation is flagrant and wilful or it is the second offense.
The decrees of the Court are published for a period of one month on
the University bulletin boards. A student once expelled by a decree of the
Honor Court shall never be received back into membership in the student body
except upon vote of the University Council.
Copies of all decrees of the Honor Court shall be sent to the Registrar.

XXI. DIRECTORY

A directory of students and faculty is kept posted in a Kardex file by the
door of the Registrar's office in Language Hall. Students should keep this
directory up to date. A place for corrections will be found after each name.

XXII. WITHDRAWAL FROM THE UNIVERSITY

Students wishing to withdraw from the University shall secure the proper
blank from the Registrar's office and shall have it signed by the authorities
indicated thereon. Students withdrawing from the University and neglecting
to have the blank properly executed will be given a grade of E on the courses
for which they are registered and will be subject to the rule governing failures.

XXIII. REGISTRATION OF AUTOMOBILES

In general the University authorities discourage students owning and
operating automobiles while in attendance at the University. While there is
no prohibition of students having automobiles while in attendance at the
University, the following regulations are in force:
1. In case a student wishes to own and operate an automobile for more
than one week, he must fill out a request card at the Registrar's office, for
which he will be given a permit card. This card must be shown any proper
University official on request.
2. The written permission of the student's parents or guardian must be
filed with the request for permission to operate an automobile. In case the
student is over twenty-one years of age and self supporting, the consent of
the parent or guardian will not be required.

XXIV. INFIRMARY

All undergraduate students are charged an Infirmary Fee of $9.00 per
year. In case of illness this fee secures for the student a bed in the Infirmary
and the services of professional nurses and of the University Physician, except
when major operations are involved. To secure this medical service, students
must report in person to the nurse in charge of the Infirmary. The Physician
in charge will be at the Infirmary daily for consultation and treatment from
12:00 to 1:00 o'clock, and the Resident Physician from 7:30 to 9:00 o'clock
in the morning and from 4:00 to 7:30 o'clock in the afternoon. The infirmary
will be open at all hours for admission of patients or treatment of emergency
cases. Board in the Infirmary is charged at the rate of $1.50 per day.

XXV. SCHOLARSHIPS AND LOAN FUNDS

All scholarships and loan funds controlled directly by the University are
under the direction of the Committee on Scholarships and Loan Funds. Ap-
plications should be made to this committee when vacancies exist. The Dean
of Students is ex-officio chairman of this committee.
This committee makes periodic scholastic and conduct reports to the don-
ors and administrators of all scholarships and loan funds. In any case where
the scholarship holder's average is less than C for the year or where there
are serious breaches of good conduct, the committee will recommend to the
donors that such student be deprived of the scholarship. In case a student
falls below the required average on account of sickness or some other un-
avoidable cause, he should bring such information to the attention of the
committee.
