The Division of Enrollment Services is responsible for providing students, faculty, and other advising staff with accurate information in the Catalog, Navigation Guide, and other publications.

The academic advisors in the College of Business, College of Arts and Sciences, College of Professional Studies, and the Undergraduate Advising Center are responsible for acting as an information and referral resource to provide students with timely and accurate information on University-wide requirements, policies, procedures, and referrals to appropriate services.

College and Department Responsibilities:
The dean of each college and chairperson of each department ultimately are responsible for ensuring that academic advice is available and accessible to all students within the college or department.

Student Responsibilities:
Students ultimately are responsible for knowing and fulfilling all University, college, and major requirements for graduation.

Student Technology and Electronic Mail Requirement
UWF prepares students for current and future business and life applications using basic technology. Each UWF student is expected to:
  • Activate a UWF ArgoNet e-mail account
  • Access e-mail two to three times a week
  • Have basic word-processing knowledge
Instructors should ensure that basic assignments can be completed using software packages currently available in the ArgoNet labs. Students should expect that instructors may request any assignments completed on the computer be turned in via e-mail rather than printed.
The University uses email for both formal and informal communication with students.

Each student, upon enrolling, is issued a UWF email account. This is the account used for University business and official University communications to students. Students are expected to regularly check their UWF email account for University communications. UWF accounts remain the property of the University of West Florida.
