HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Summer / Fall Course Registration:
Summer / Fall registration is approaching quickly. You can view the online schedule of courses at www.registrar.ufl.edu/soc . The course descriptions for honors courses are available online at www.honors.ufl.edu  

To find your registration start time, visit ISIS, www.isis.ufl.edu , and click on "Registration Prep". This is the time you may begin registering for summer/fall courses online. Note that you do not meet with an advisor to register - everything is done on ISIS.

Honors course registration for students in their first three semesters will take place Thursday and Friday, March 19-20, from 9:00am-5:00pm. You will only be able to register for an honors course during this time, and you can register for up to one course per day. Honors course registration takes place on ISIS just as you would for your regular courses, www.isis.ufl.edu . Students who have moved beyond their third semester in Honors will be able to register for available honors courses during their regular registration time.

**All students should check ISIS to view any holds.** 

All holds must be removed prior to registering for courses. In most cases, an honors advisor *cannot* remove these holds for you. 

All engineering majors must meet with an advisor in engineering (*not honors*) to get your engineering advising hold removed. To view the list of engineering advisors by department, visit http://www.eng.ufl.edu/studentaffairs/advising/index.php  

Please plan ahead now, so there won't be any problems once registration begins.

Remember, if you want to meet with an honors advisor, please call 352-392-1519 to make an appointment, rather than e-mailing an advisor directly.

2.	RESEARCH: Beckman Scholars Program:

Students can choose to start in June or January and part-time attendance can be accommodated.

The MSM degree program consists of a three-term, 32-credit hour curriculum. There is no thesis requirement. Students pursuing a second master's degree concurrently at UF can benefit from sharing of credits. The Integrated MSM Option allows students to take up to 12 MSM credits while they are still undergraduates. Those credits count toward the MS degree and can also apply toward free electives for the undergraduate degree. Upon completion of the required curriculum, students are awarded the Master of Science Degree, with a major in Management.

9.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Training course in Greenhouse Gas Accounting and Management (NEW POSTING):
Barack Obama is calling for millions of new "green" jobs, and a cap-and-trade plan to limit greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. More than 98% of climate change leaders believe that measuring and accounting of emissions is critical to managing climate change.  
The problem? No university in the country teaches these skills, causing a shortage that will severely limit our ability to solve global climate change.

The solution? Campus Climate Solutions, a Gainesville-based company, is proud to announce Gainesville's first course in GHG Accounting and Management! Registration is now open, and classes begin March 31. Also, any student who completes our class is guaranteed an internship with one of our partner organizations!
