Additionally, important announcements from the Honors Office, including advanced honors course registration, are listed here. All first and second year honors students are required to receive the Honors Daily.

If you are not a first or second year honors student and would like to unsubscribe, please e-mail your UFID to Melissa Johnson at [log in to unmask] . Include "unsubscribe" in the subject of your e-mail.

2.      ANNOUNCEMENT: National Merit/Achievement and UWC Students:

Fran can also be reached by e-mail: [log in to unmask]

Fran's office hours are for questions you may have about your NM/NA/UWC scholarships.

3.      ADVISING ANNOUNCEMENT: Walk-in Advising (TODAY)
Honors advisors will not be taking any academic advising appointments during drop/add week. Instead, we will have open walk-in advising hours in 118 Hume Hall each day this week from 9:00am-12:00pm and 1:00-4:00pm. Note that not all advisors will be available during these times, so you may not be able to ask for a specific advisor.

Walk-in advising meetings typically run for 5-10 minutes and are, therefore, most useful for quick questions about registration.

Please note the following:

-Honors advisors cannot add students to any classes that are full or override drop/add appointment times.

-If you are having trouble registering for an open class because ISIS says you have not met the prereq, you'll need to contact the department that offers the course. Honors advisors cannot override prereqs, even if you actually have met the prereqs.

-If you need a lengthy review of requirements, need to rearrange your AP/IB credits, or want to discuss long-term planning or undergraduate opportunities, *please* wait until after drop/add week is over to meet with an advisor. We will begin taking advising appointments again starting August 31. Just call our office at 352-846-6083 to set up an appointment.

4.      ADVISING ANNOUNCEMENT: Drop/Add (TODAY):
ISIS Registration, www.isis.ufl.edu , is available starting today, August 24. You will have a registration appointment for schedule adjustment which you can find on ISIS.

*Advisors cannot bypass your appointment time to add you to a class early.*

Your schedule must be finalized by 11:59pm on August 28. Don't forget to add a class before you drop one if possible!

For more information on registration, visit http://www.registrar.ufl.edu/soc/regtips.html

11.     ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Changes to the Florida Bright Futures Scholarship:
The 2009 Florida Legislative Session resulted in several changes to the Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program for the 2009-10 academic year.

Students should pay particular attention to the changes regarding renewal criteria and repayment for courses funded by Bright Futures that are dropped / withdrawn.

Beginning Fall Semester 2009, Bright Futures recipients are required to meet new minimum credit hour requirements to renew their award each year. The Florida Legislature now requires full-time students to earn at least 24 semester hours to renew their award at the end of the spring term.

The Florida Legislature also now requires students to repay the cost of any course dropped or withdrawn after the drop / add period. Repayment for the cost of a dropped or withdrawn course is required to renew a Bright Futures award for a subsequent academic year. There is an exception to this requirement for medical withdrawals.

18.     STUDY ABROAD: December Program - Panama Canal:
The College of Health and Human Performance and the Department of Health Education and Behavior is pleased to offer a study abroad course through the University International Center. Students will cruise the Panama Canal December 10-20.

This 3 credit hour course (HLP4930/HLP5925) titled "North American Perspectives on Health (NAPOH) - The Panama Canal & Central America" is available to all UF majors. Because this is a UF program, credits earned can satisfy major and elective requirements as approved by your academic advisor.

As a participant in this program, you will have the opportunity to gain a historical perspective on health in the United States and Central America. This course uses construction of the Panama Canal to illustrate the multifactoral affects communicable diseases and recreational alcohol use can have on the health status of a population. Upon completion of this course students will be able to describe basic epidemiological principles related to the disease control efforts in the US and Central America. Students will compare and contrast the diverse health conditions in the US and Central America during the twentieth century as well as today. The influence of environment, health care and recreational opportunities on health will also be explored.

Instruction on various health education topics will be provided through lectures by UF Faculty. In addition, students will participate in field study site visits to Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Guatemala and Mexico.

All students MUST register for HLP4933/HSC5925 during Fall (scheduled for Friday, periods 7-9) as well as participate in all pre-travel and post-travel lectures/discussions, field excursions, project and general activities. Graduate students will be required to lead a presentation and group project.  Note: Students may enroll in this course and not travel to Panama and, thus not incur travel costs.

If you are interested in participating in this program, please apply online at http://www.abroad.ufic.ufl.edu as soon as possible as space is limited. They must receive your program confirmation and deposit no later than September 9.
