Holds, Registration, & Course Planning

For instructions on how to have your “College Registration (EG)” advising hold removed for summer/fall 2021, carefully read the Advising Hold Removal Instructions document. Be sure you are completing all tasks necessary, depending upon your semester of graduation. MAE students should also review the Hold Removal page on the MAE Undergrad Advising Canvas site to find information on other common holds.

Utilize the following Curriculum Sheets and your Degree Audit to plan your courses.

Curriculum Sheets

Reference the sheet below that corresponds to your major and catalog year (year you entered UF). Read the top of the sheet carefully. These are only suggested outlines and it is each student’s responsibility to craft their ideal individual plan with assistance and resources from advising.

Course Schedules

Student Responsibilities

The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering will make every effort to advise students on degree requirements, course selections, etc. However, it is ultimately the individual student’s responsibility to ensure that they have satisfied all degree requirements.

The ONE.UF website is a valuable tool for the individual student to track degree progress. We strongly encourage students to periodically check their Degree Audit at the ONE.UF website. You must satisfy all the requirements on the degree audit in order to graduate. The Curriculum Sheet posted above from your catalog year is an additional course planning resource you may find helpful.
