3.      ANNOUNCEMENT: Design the 2009-2010 Honors Student Planner:
The Honors Program is looking for creative people to design the next cover for the student planner of 2009-2010. There are no real strict guidelines, although we would prefer something that shows the uniqueness and diversity of the Honors Program in addition to, of course, something about the Gators!

The only true requirements for the planner cover are the following:
-       The image should be of dimensions 5" x 7.9375", although it can extend 5.5" x 8.4375", but anything past 5" x 7.9375" will be cut off.
-       The image should be digital, and in, preferably, .psd format. JPEG will be accepted, but please do not compress the images. Please, no Word documents.

The winner of this cover contest will win a $30 gift certificate from the University of Florida Bookstore, lunch with the Honors Program Staff and a complimentary copy of the 2009-10 planner. Questions regarding entries may be directed to [log in to unmask]
Entries are due at the Honors Program office on April 10. Good luck!

4.      ANNOUNCEMENT: Office Hours for National Merit/Achievement/UWC:
Fran's National Merit/Achievement/UWC office hours have changed to Monday - Thursday, 10:00am-12:00pm.

5.      ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Attention Out-of-state National Merit & Achievement Scholars:
If you are an out-of-state merit or achievement student who plans on attending summer classes, in order to use your nine credits of out-of-state fee waiver, you must turn in the summer fee waiver form that can be found off the Honors website (http://www.honors.ufl.edu/forms.html) or in 118 Hume Hall. This form must be turned in by the end of summer drop/add to Fran Green. Summer A/C drop/add ends May 12, and Summer B drop/add ends June 30.

***If the form is not turned in by the end of drop/add, your waiver will NOT be processed***

6.      ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Drop Deadline:
The deadline to drop a class is Friday, April 10 at 5:00pm. You can pick up the form in the Registrar's Office, your college advising office or online at http://www.registrar.ufl.edu/pdf/schedulechange.pdf

To drop a course, you must take the drop form to your college's advising office (Honors advisors cannot sign drop forms). For your college advising office location, visit http://www.registrar.ufl.edu/soc/advisers.html

You have a limited number of drops at UF. Generally, you have two drops for your first sixty hours attempted at UF (not including incoming credit brought in through AP/IB) and two drops in upper-division. Hence it is not a good idea to use a drop lightly, as you may need it another semester in a true emergency.

Many people, including medical schools, recommend not dropping a course if you are earning a "C" or higher.
