This form should be used to determine if a course from a University of Florida or Warrington College of Business exchange partner or Heavener International Programs affiliate is equivalent (virtually the “same” course by content) to a Heavener School of Business required business core or major course. It is the student’s responsibility to determine if the content of the UF course matches the content of the course being offered abroad. This is accomplished by comparing the syllabus of the UF course and the syllabus of the course from the international institution.
