The University Colloquium is an upper-division course: students should have achieved junior status before the semester begins. Only in exceptional cases are sophomore-level students permitted to register for the Colloquium.
The enrollment cap for each section is listed in Gulfline. Instructors are not obligated to allow additional students to register in their section after the class is full. Students who wish to register in a full section of Colloquium may wish to attend the first class meeting in the event that another student drops from that section in the drop/add period; however, they should understand that this is no guarantee of obtaining a space in that section.
Spaces in the online sections of the Colloquium are reserved for students who:
1) live outside of the university's five-county service region (Lee, Charlotte, Collier, Hendry, and Glades counties), or
2) are enrolled in a degree program that is offered entirely online
Students who meet one or both of these criteria should contact their Academic Advisor for registration in an online section of Colloquium.
IF additional seats are available, students who do not meet the above criteria may be admitted into an online section. The Academic Advisors maintain waiting lists of students who do not meet these criteria but wish to enroll in an online section of the course. If open seats remain in these sections prior to the beginning of the semester, students will be admitted off of the waiting lists until the open seats are filled. Students should note that being placed on a waiting list does not guarantee having a space in an online Colloquium section. These students may wish to also enroll in an on-campus section of the course in the event that space in an online section is not available.
