Policy Statement

This Catalog represents the current curricula, educational plans, and requirements of the University of West Florida at the time the text in the Catalog was prepared. The provisions of the Catalog do not constitute an offer for a contract that may be accepted by students through registration and enrollment in the University. In accordance with the University, UWF Board of Trustees, Florida Board of Governors, and Florida legislative mandates, the University must reserve the right to change any provision, offering, or requirement at any time within the student's period of study at the University. Students should be aware that admission to the University or registration for a given semester does not necessarily guarantee the availability of a course at any specific time, but every effort will be made to meet each student's curricular needs. Students are ultimately responsible for adhering to the requirements for courses and degrees offered by the University by obtaining current information about those courses and degree programs.

The University of West Florida is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Institution. The University is committed to the principles of equal opportunity. Programs, activities, services, and all terms and conditions of employment of the University are offered with equal access to all persons without regard to race, color, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, national origin or disability.

The University of West Florida supports an inclusive learning environment for all students. If there are aspects of the instruction or design of a course that hinder your full participation, such as time-limited exams, inaccessible web content, or the use of non-captioned videos and podcasts, reasonable accommodations can be arranged. Prior to receiving accommodations, students must register with Student Accessibility Resources. Appropriate academic accommodations will be determined based on the documented needs of the individual.
