HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Frost Scholarship Info Sessions – Registration Required (NEW POSTING):
The Frost Scholarship Program funds current students of the State University System of Florida (SUSF) to study one-year, full-time master’s courses in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (‘STEM’ subjects) at the University of Oxford. Florida residents graduating in 2014/2015 and applying to an appropriate course at Oxford for 2015/2016 are eligible. A list of eligible courses and application information available at www.graduate.ox.ac.uk/frost

Last year, two UF students earned Frost Scholarships, and a representative will be visiting campus on Tuesday, October 28 to meet with prospective applicants. Information sessions will take place in the 3rd floor conference room of the Infirmary at 9:35am (3rd period) and 1:55pm (7th period). 

If you are interested in meeting with the representative, you *must* pre-register by emailing Regan Garner at [log in to unmask] no later than noon on Monday, October 27.

2.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Group Advising Q&A Sessions:
Dr. Johnson will be holding two group advising Q&A sessions for students who have questions about processes, resources, and other general advising and registration issues. Sample questions might be – How does early registration work? What the heck is on a degree audit? Who do I talk to about…(changing a major, dropping a class, adding a major/minor, etc.)? 

You don’t have to stay for the entire session – come and go as you please. Note, we will not be pulling up your individual records on ISIS during the session, so keep that in mind. We hope this will help for those of you who just have questions about these topics now that appointment spots are starting to fill and drop-in hours are busier.

Monday, October 27 from 10:40-11:30am
Tuesday, October 28 from 4:05-4:55pm

Both in 302 Infirmary. No pre-registration required.

3.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Check ISIS / Spring Registration Prep:
Spring registration will be here sooner than you think, so now is a great time for first year students in particular to check ISIS for holds and other information. Most of these holds cannot be removed by an honors advisor, so you don’t want to wait until the last minute to take care of them. Early registration for first and second year honors students takes place October 30 and 31 – this date will sneak up on you! Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/310095185856869/ 

Spring schedule of courses: http://www.registrar.ufl.edu/soc/201501/all/

Spring honors course descriptions (more will be added as they become available): http://www.honors.ufl.edu/courses/CoursesSpring2015.aspx

First-year students should have an alcohol education hold on their record – this hold will not be removed until you have completed the online alcohol education seminar. For more information about this hold, visit https://www.dso.ufl.edu/nsfp/first-year-experience/alcohol-education/ 

Engineering majors now have an advising hold – you must meet with an **engineering** advisor (**not honors**) to get your engineering advising hold removed. To view the list of engineering advisors by department, visit http://www.eng.ufl.edu/students/advising/who-is-my-advisor/ 

Other majors may also require you to meet with an advisor *in your department* so keep checking for these types of holds, as you can’t wait until the last minute to meet with an advisor.

Also check for other holds, including financial holds, admissions credentials holds (usually a missing HS transcript or dual enrollment transcript), and emergency contact or local address holds. Staying on top of holds will make the registration process much smoother. Note, you will not be able to register for classes until your holds are removed. No advisor is able to override that for you, not even for early registration. You are responsible for taking care of your holds in a timely manner.

While you are on ISIS, verify that UF has received your AP/IB/AICE scores – go to My Record -> Test Scores. If you do not see your scores listed, you will need to submit those scores to UF as soon as possible. Without those scores, you may have difficulty registering for courses that need those credits as prerequisites, or you may be considered off-track if you are counting those credits as tracking courses. Your spring registration start time may be impacted by the number of credit hours you have as well. If you have missing scores, you may contact College Board / IB / AICE to have them resend your scores. Alternatively, you may be able to talk to Admissions about how to verify your scores from your original reports. Please contact them directly for further clarification.

4.	HONORS COURSE ANNOUNCEMENT: Scholarship Prep Course Application Available (NEW POSTING):
Applications are now being accepted for IDH4715: Professional Development Strategies. This one credit class will meet Thursdays, 8th period and is reserved for first and second year students interested in applying for the UF nomination for prestigious scholarships such as the Truman, Goldwater, Udall, Fulbright, and more.

5.	HONORS COURSE ANNOUNCEMENT: Honors Admissions Course Applications:
Applications are now being accepted for the IDH 4905: Honors Admissions course, Wednesdays 7th period, for the spring semester. Students in this 1-credit class will read the 2000+ application essays from incoming freshmen applying to the Honors Program. We will spend the first half of the term reviewing old essays and developing rubrics for evaluating the new essays. Students in the class also develop some of the application questions. 

Students will also serve as reviewers for the lateral admissions essays during the month of November 2014. 

To apply for the course, please respond to the following prompt in a 1-page, single-spaced essay: Develop an interesting essay topic that you think would be suitable for applicants to the UF Honors Program, and then write your response to it. Attach your application in an email to Dr. Johnson at [log in to unmask] by 5:00pm on Thursday, October 23. Please include your name and UFID on your application. Students selected will be notified by email on October 29. Lateral admission reviews will begin one week following notification.

Students who participated in the course last year may enroll again in the online section without submitting an application. If interested, please email Dr. Johnson by 5:00pm on October 23.
