Expectations

The students will participate in a themed learning community revolving around a designated topic and will enroll in a 1-credit course which meets weekly on Wednesdays during the academic year during 9th period (4:05-4:55 p.m.). Please do not apply if you have other non-academic commitments that would interfere with your participation.

It is expected that the Reitz Scholars Program for outstanding undergraduate leaders will have a very positive impact on the quality of student life at the University of Florida.

The Reitz Scholars are expected to maintain at least a 3.25 grade point average in all of their academic work at the University while pursuing a degree program on a full-time basis. They are expected to volunteer their time in service to the campus and community and to be active leaders in student organizations at UF. Finally, all Reitz Scholars are expected to be outstanding citizens of the University of Florida community who will conduct their lives with integrity and honor. The program requires attendance at weekly class meetings, one weekend retreat and service project per semester, and other activities for the Reitz Scholars. Becoming a Reitz Scholar means regular participation and being paired with a faculty mentor for individual support.
