HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.      ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Drop Deadline (TODAY):
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.





HONORS ORGANIZATION ANNOUNCEMENTS

2.      ANNOUNCEMENT: Student Organization of the Year:
The Student Honors Organization has been honored by IDEAL as the Student Organization of the Year!  Please share in SHO's great recognition, and many congratulations go out to the executive board for putting on such a fantastic series of programs all year long!

3.      ANNOUNCEMENT: SHO Officer Elections:
