Study Space in Heavener Hall
Heavener Hall will be open weekdays from 7 a.m.—11:30 p.m., and study rooms must be reserved through a reservation system. Students must use their @ufl.edu email address to make a reservation. Each student can make one reservation per day with a maximum length of two hours, and they must bring their UFID to sign in for their reservation.. Reservations can only be made 14 days in advance. Students can reserve study rooms with a maximum capacity of one, or can reserve study space in the Heavener commons area (masks required).
All reservable seats in the Heavener commons area will be clearly labeled.
Students must follow physical distancing rules and wear a mask at all times (unless utilizing a private study room), sitting only in the appropriately marked seats. Please follow all posted signage and UF Health policies.
TAKE YOUR EXAMS AT HOME
UF will rely on a “Test-In-Place” plan again this semester for online proctored exams. Each student is expected to use their place of residence – whether on or off campus – for scheduled online exams. To successfully complete an online proctored exam, students need a quiet space with adequate lighting, no distractions and a strong internet connection. If you cannot secure a space with the above requirements, please contact your faculty member at least 72 hours before your exam (preferably earlier than that).
Warrington College of Business instructors are willing to accommodate student needs but must know of those needs in advance. Some campus resources for testing space include 16 Heavener Hall study rooms (see reservation availability here), UF Libraries (see location and hours here) and the Reitz Union. Marston Science Library is open Monday-Thursday from 8 a.m. — 1 a.m., on Friday from 8 a.m. — 11 p.m., on Saturday from 9 a.m. — 8 p.m., and on Sunday from 10 a.m. — 1 a.m. Library West has 10 testing booths available for reservation here, and reservations can be made for times Monday through Friday until 5 p.m. Please follow the specific directions of your course instructor with regard to exam times and expectations.
For specific questions regarding any online proctored exam, students are asked to contact their course instructor in advance of their scheduled test date.
HONORLOCK GUIDELINES IN STUDY ROOMS
Honorlock considers Heavener study rooms as an acceptable location for students to take exams. However, it is important that students orient themselves in a specific way. In order to be in accordance with Honorlock guidelines in the study rooms, students must take their exam while facing the glass wall in the room with the mural wall to their immediate left or right.
Faculty members will provide all relevant details about how to access course materials, including lectures. This information will come through your GatorLink email.
If you have questions regarding course content, course delivery issues, or any specific course-related items, please contact your instructor directly.

Frequently Asked S/U Questions
- What is S/U eligible?
- Full details: Emergency S/U Policy for Spring 2020 Semester
- We have elected to make all undergraduate courses within the Warrington College S/U eligible for the Spring 2020 term. Every Heavener and Fisher undergraduate student can request for their undergraduate courses within the Warrington College this term be converted to S/U – and all of these requests will be automatically approved by the University if made on or before April 22nd.
- We have confirmed that key critical tracking courses taught outside of the college (CGS 2531, ECO 2013, ECO 2023, MAC 2233, MAC 2234 and STA 2023) will all be S/U eligible
- Please note, if you are taking courses outside of our College (above and beyond the critical tracking courses mentioned above that we have confirmed will be S/U eligible), these Colleges will determine which courses are S/U eligible. Beginning April 1, you will be able to see which of your courses are eligible for S/U when you log into ONE.UF and follow the instructions for requesting S/U.
- How do I decide if S/U is a good option for me?
Important notes of clarification on the S/U policy – to help you make the best decision possible:
- The College has elected to permit S grades to meet the established grade minimum requirements for specific courses within all of our majors if these courses are taken using the S/U option in the Spring 2020 term, as defined for each major below:
- Accounting: ACG 2021 (B); ACG 2071 (B)
- Finance: ACG 2021 (B); ACG 2071 (B); FIN 3403 (B)
- Information Systems: N/A
- Management: MAN 3025 (C)
- Marketing: MAR 3023 (C)
- The College has also elected to permit S grades to meet the established grade minimum requirement for all critical tracking courses within all majors
- For courses which require minimum grades in prerequisites, the College will accept a grade of S for prerequisites taken in Spring 2020.
- An ”S” grade at UF equates to a C or better letter grade. Therefore, a grade of C- or below will translate to a U grade assignment for any course that is converted, via individual student request, to an S/U designation
- To clarify:
- Letter grade system
- Passing grades = A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, D-
- Failing grades = E, WF, I, NG
- S/U option
- Passing grade = S
- Failing grade = U
- It is important for you to carefully consider what constitutes a passing vs. failing grade for S/U if you choose this option for the Spring 2020 semester. To emphasize: S/U is not equivalent to Pass/Fail, and if one earns a U for a class, credit is not granted for that class.
- How does S/U affect my GPA?
An S grade will not affect your critical tracking GPA and/or your overall GPA. This could be good or bad. For example, if hoping to increase your GPA with Spring 2020 classes, this will not be possible if you convert to all S/U grading.
- What are some other important S/U implications to consider?
There are possible impacts on future academic and professional pursuits associated with opting for S/U grades versus letter grades. You are encouraged to connect with your academic advisor to get specific detail on how this may impact your future plans before you make an irreversible decision to convert to S/U. Three notable items to consider:
- Graduate and professional programs may require letter grades, or may prefer letter grades as part of their application review process
- For accounting majors, some states require letter grades in courses in order for such courses to count for both sitting for the CPA examination, and subsequent licensing in a state in the future. Accordingly, an S grade may not suffice in the future for CPA licensure.
- Admission to the Master of Accounting (including the 3/2 Program) requires a minimum GPA in all 3000-level and above accounting courses. This GPA will not include courses taken via the S/U option. For the 3/2 Program, there are no exceptions to the minimum requirements, and there is no appeal process. Students not meeting minimums must improve their performance, earn the BSAc, and apply to the 4/1 Program.
- With a deadline of April 22nd to decide whether I should switch a course to S/U (or drop it), can I ask my instructors to move up their exams and/or accelerate their grading of end-of-term exams and assignments?
The amount of final grade information you will have before April 22nd will vary from course to course. You must make your decision about whether to switch a course(s) to S/U with the grade information you have on hand on or before April 22nd. Instructors are not expected to move up exams/assignments or accelerate their grading of end-of-term exams/assignments in order to provide final grade information before the end of the term. Please refrain from making these requests. Rest assured, your instructors are doing their absolute best to accommodate you and your classmates. If you have limited information, have additional questions or need help making your S/U decision, please contact your academic advisor.
Most importantly, please stay informed about COVID-19 and follow all critical guidelines and recommendations from the CDC and local/state/federal government to keep yourself and your loved ones safe. Know that the entire College is here to help and support you in any way that we can during this semester, and beyond. We encourage you to connect with your academic advisors with any and all questions that you have. They will work with you to provide solutions, support and insight, as will we.
