Summer and Fall Registration FAQ

  • How do I register for classes?

    To register for all non-ANS classes and the ANS classes that are not departmentally controlled, you will need to visit your ONE.UF. Sign in with your Gatorlink and go to Register/View My Schedule, then select Summer/Fall 2021. 

    If your registration time has started, you will be able to begin registering for classes. If it is not your registration time yet, you will see a date and time listed for when registration will open for you. 

    **You must clear all holds before you will be able to register or see your registration start time! Do this early, do not wait until registration day to do this!**

  • How do I register for ANS departmentally controlled classes?
    You can request ANS departmentally controlled classes using the Microsoft Form linked here.When your registration opens, you should still look for your classes in the SOC and register for those classes that are available. 
    Filling out this form DOES NOT guarantee you a seat in the requested classes. This form ONLY includes DEPARTMENTALLY CONTROLLED classes. You will be able to enroll yourself in all other classes, depending on their availability at your time of registration. You can find a full list of classes on the UF Schedule of Courses. Only "answer" the questions for the classes you wish to be enrolled in and skip all other questions.
    The course request for ANS 3008 Livestock Behavior and Welfare was left off of the original form and can be filled out here through a separate form.

  • How do I enroll in ANS 4911 Undergraduate Research credits?

General Student FAQ

  • When will classes be back to in-person?

    Summer A and C semesters will be following similar plans to Spring 2021, with many classes offered online. Beginning with Summer B, and into Fall 2021, classes will return to the primarily in-person format. 

    Please pay attention to class times and locations when registering for your fall semester. 

  • Why do my online classes still have a scheduled time?

    While many of the courses this spring will be conducted online, some will retain their usual class time during the week. These are synchronous online classes, and you will need to be online at the assigned time to participate in the class material. For synchronous classes, students will be expected to interact and engage with the class and should have their video enabled whenever possible. Some online classes will be delivered asynchronously, which means that you are not required to view the lecture at a specific time, but will be expected to work through the course material and meet assignment deadlines on your own. 

  • What can I expect from my Primarily Classroom/Traditional, Hybrid or 100% online classes?

    Primarily Classroom/Traditional: These class sections will meet regularly in-person at a scheduled time. Students will be expected to be present unless they have an approved absence. 

    Hybrid: Courses offered 80-99% online are considered hybrid classes. A hybrid course will be primarily delivered online but will have a small number of in-person experiences that will differ from class to class. Hybrid courses will include animal sciences classes that have a lecture portion and a lab component where the hands-on experiences are considered integral to meeting the learning objectives. 

    100% Online: These courses are being offered in a completely virtual format. These courses may be offered synchronously or asynchronously. Students who will not be living in Gainesville for the spring should make sure to select the 100% online sections of their courses. 

    **Some courses will be offering BOTH a Primarily Classroom/Traditional section with limited seating and a 100% online section of the same class. Pay careful attention to which section you register for. **

  • How do I meet with my advisor?

    The Animal Sciences Advising Office will be conducting meetings virtually via zoom for the fall semester. 

    1. At your assigned appointment time you will need to join Zoom using the Zoom waiting room link for your advisor.
    2. You will be placed in a virtual waiting room. It is important to remain logged in until we are able to meet.
    3. Once we are available, we will admit you to the advising session.
      1. If you have a graduation plan or materials you want us to review please email them to us right before your appointment time so we can access it during our meeting.

    If you do not have an appointment you can “walk-in” using the same zoom links as above. Walk-in hours will be 9:30am- Noon and 1:00pm- 3:30pm. Depending on other appointments and availability, it may take a little time to be seen, but we will try our best to get to you in a timely manner. If we are available, our Zoom links will be open. If we are out of the office or neither Allyson nor Zoe are available for walk-ins, our zoom links will be closed. Check back in later, schedule an appointment, or email us a list of questions.

    If you are unable to use Zoom and would prefer phone advising, please let us know via email and we will arrange a time and exchange numbers.
