Academic Policies
WRITING AND MATHEMATICS REQUIREMENTS (GORDON RULE)
To fulfill the writing and mathematics requirement for earning the first
baccalaureate degree (Gordon Rule, Florida Statutes), 6 semester hours
of English coursework and 6 semester hours of additional coursework in
which the student is required to demonstrate college level writing
skills through multiple assignments are required. UWF has designated
courses which meet this writing requirement below. In addition six
semester hours of mathematics at the level of college algebra or higher
are required (six semester hours of theoretical or three semester hours
of theoretical and three semester hours of applied). Applied logic,
statistics, and other such computation course work which may not be
placed within a mathematics department may be used to fulfill three
semester hours of the six semester hours required by this rule. Grades
of ?C? or better successfully complete this requirement. Courses may
not be taken on the pass/fail basis. Transfer students should refer to
the Transfer Credit section of this Catalog. Students must complete
these requirements before advancing to upperdivision status.
Normally, these requirements will be satisfied at the freshman and
sophomore levels. Applicants transferring from other than Florida public
community/junior colleges will be advised of procedures to follow.
Students may seek assistance in improving writing and mathematics in the
appropriate laboratories. The following UWF courses are approved for
Gordon Rule (all courses are 3 sh unless otherwise noted):
