U. of Florida considers proposal to allow students to opt out of fall semester to ease crowding

September 20, 2010

The University of Florida is considering a proposal that would give incoming students the option of taking classes during the spring and summer semesters only to help eliminate overcrowding during the fall term.

Students in spring-summer format would not be blocked from taking fall classes altogether, just courses in residence.

Student leaders on campus seem to appreciate the administration’s move to give them more control over their own scheduling. Faculty leaders are also open to the idea.

In order for the university to make this offer, however, it will have to ask the state legislature to change a statute.
