Academic Policies

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 upper-division 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):
