  • Enter the title of the course as it appears in the Academic Catalog.
  • Select the requested term that the course change(s) will first be implemented. Selecting "Earliest" will allow the change to be effective in the earliest term after SCNS approval. If a specific term and year are selected, this should reflect the department’s expectations. Courses cannot be changed retroactively, and therefore the actual effective term cannot be prior to SCNS approval, which must be obtained prior to the first day of classes for the effective term. SCNS approval typically requires at least 6 weeks after approval of the course change at UF.

Proposed course descriptions may not exceed 50 words. To change the variable credit you will need to both the current and proposed min/max credits.
