Students are eligible for access to library services only if they are enrolled in classes at the University of Florida. The Libraries recognize that students may take a semester long break from classes. Read below to learn about access to library services during your break.
Active students retain library privileges for one semester after the last semester in which they were enrolled for classes, or until graduation, unless their account with the University Registrar is flagged or blocked.
Remain aware of all dates and deadlines for advanced and regular registration to avoid lapses in library access.
Contact Library staff if you are taking off longer than one semester, or have issues with your current library access.
If you are unable to complete advanced or regular registration, you should plan to enroll for at least one credit for the current semester to maintain library privileges.
- This may include Graduate students working on their dissertations, as well as students finishing assignments for classes in which they received an Incomplete.
Options for students who have not been enrolled for more than one semester and who have not yet registered for an upcoming semester:
Use the computers, research and view print materials while in the libraries.
Purchase a Special Program Borrower’s Card for the semester.
Visit the public library for additional resources.
