Academic advising is a process that will assist you in attaining your academic goals and developing a professional development plan.
UF students are required to have a Gatorlink email account and to check it on a regular basis. Important information is sent to students via their UF email address. This is the official means of communication between the university and students. Students are accountable for reading all official email messages and being familiar with their content.
UF students have access to the online University of Florida catalog, which contains all academic policies and major requirements (registrar.ufl.edu). Students are responsible for reading and understanding the catalog. Advisors serve as a resource for clarifying these policies.
UF undergraduate students need to be familiar with their degree audit, which students can access through ONE.UF (one.ufl.edu). Students should review their degree audit before meeting with their advisor each semester.
All students should meet with their academic advisor at least once per semester. Registration holds will be placed on all students’ records prior to advance registration. Students are responsible for knowing the time and date of their registration appointments and are responsible for meeting with their advisor in advance of their assigned registration time.
Make a request at least two weeks prior to the deadline.
Email Karen Bray with following information: why you are applying, a list of your strengths, what you hope to gain from the experience, the name of the organization you are applying to, and the organization's physical address. Include links to any important details that will be useful in writing the letter.
Inform Karen how she should submit the letter (via email, mail, a link online, fax, or back to the student) and if the letter needs to be sent directly to the student/organization or if it should be included in a packet with other materials.
