Policies, Rules & Regulations

  • Critical-Course Tracking Requirements:

    • Critical courses for Industrial and Systems Engineering consist of the following:
      • MAC2311: Analytical Geometry & Calculus 1
      • MAC2312: Analytical Geometry & Calculus 2
      • MAC2313: Analytical Geometry & Calculus 3
      • MAP2302: Differential Equations
      • PHY2048: Physics with Calculus 1
      • PHY2049: Physics with Calculus 2
      • COP2271: VB.net
      • ESI4327c: Matrix & Numerical Methods  (effective fall 2015)
    • Requirement 1: Students must complete each of the eight critical tracking courses listed above with a C or better in at most two attempts, including withdrawals. A registration canceled for non-payment is also considered an attempt.
    • Requirement 2: Based on the grade from the last attempt, the GPA among these critical tracking courses must be at least 2.5.
    • Students failing to satisfy the above two requirements will not be able to continue in the ISE major.
  • 3-Time Rule for all other courses excluding critical tracking

    • Students must complete each required course with C or better in at most three attempts, including withdrawals. A registration canceled for non-payment is also considered an attempt. Students failing to do so will be dismissed from ISE.
  • Honors Theses: (Effective Fall 2014)

    • In additions to those required by College of Engineering (see Graduating with Honors), students must submit their individual by the following deadlines to ugc@ise.ufl.edu:
      • For fall graduation, the deadline is the first Friday after Labor Day.
      • For spring graduation, the deadline is the first Friday after MLK Day.
      • For summer graduation, the deadline is the first Friday after Memorial Day.
  • Incomplete Grades

    • When receiving an incomplete grade at the end of a semester, students must complete the course work and make arrangements to have the incomplete changed to a letter grade before the last day of class of the following semester. Afterward, an unresolved incomplete grade becomes an “E,” a failing grade.
  • Technical and General Electives (Effective Fall 2014)

    • Students must receive a C or better in courses selected to satisfy the requirements for technical and general electives.
  • EIN4944: Practical Work Experience

    • Internships must involve work related to Industrial and Systems Engineering, in order to be considered for the EIN4944 credit.  EIN4944 only counts as a general elective and does cost 1 credit hour of tuition.
    • Since EIN4944 is departmentally controlled, registration requires the Request for Registration Form, located on the Application and Forms webpage, is completed.
    • The EIN4944 credit can only be added to a schedule during normal registration times for a semester.  It can be added for the semester you plan to do the internship or one semester after the internship is completed.
    • The internship credit is graded with a U or S.  The student is required to complete a  Practical Work Experience Form located on the Applications and Forms webpage, before the end of the internship.  The student’s internship supervisor will be sent a Supervisor’s Evaluation Survey by the Undergraduate Coordinator.  Both forms will need to be completed for the grade.
    • Internships must involve at least 480 hours of work
      • 12 weeks (at 40 hours per week – 480 hours worked)
      • 3 months (at 4 weeks per month – 480 hours worked)
  • Repeating Courses

    • For students who have to repeat courses, delay in graduation is a natural consequence. It is our policy to always adhere to our co- and prerequisite requirements. Petitions to take courses without the necessary co- and/or prerequisite requirements in order to eliminate or shorten delay are never approved.
