important that summer B freshmen make arrangements NOW to complete their
CLEP testing as soon as possible. There are spaces available in the UF lab
during the August 19-29 period.  Additionally students are strongly
encouraged to take the tests at a local testing facility during break, if
there is one near their home. Between now and the end of the semester
students may be able to get the space of someone who has cancelled by
going directly to CSE 211. Go to http://www.at.ufl.edu/~clep/ to sign up
for CLEP exams on campus. For more information, see

2.  FALL CRITICAL DATES:  Classes begin for Fall semester on Monday,
August 26, 2002, and Drop/Add ends on August 29, 2002.  See
http://www.isis.ufl.edu for more critical dates for fall.

3.  GATORLINK REQUIRED FOR UF STUDENTS:  All undergraduate, graduate and
professional students must have a GatorLink account, which is free.
Beginning August 16, all official university e-mail will be sent only to
your GatorLink e-mail account. Students will be held accountable for
information contained in official university mailings to the GatorLink
address (which resembles this format: [log in to unmask]).  Should you prefer,
you may wish to have your GatorLink mail forwarded to a non-GatorLink
