Off Book means that tuition is due via a registration system outside of ISIS and University Financial Services, and adheres to a different set of due dates than a ‘conventional,’ or On Book system. Although registration and payment is handled outside of ISIS, you will still see yourself registered there – look for PHA 6935 (Pharmaceutical Crimes or Veterinary Pharmacy) of PHA 6275 (Fed Reg Controlled Substances). The degree audit has been programmed to recognize these courses as eligible electives, and will count toward degree requirements.
1PD and 2PD students are eligible for these courses in either the fall or spring, if granted an exception by the Academic and Professional Standards Committee for a course overload. A petition is required and can be submitted to Dean McKenzie. First and second year students may enroll in these courses in the summer without needing to petition.
Off Book electives are available to PharmD students during the summer, with the following limitations:
3PD students in summer clerkships should not take these courses unless they are granted an exception by the Academic and Professional Standards Committee for a course overload. A petition is required and can be submitted to Dean McKenzie.
3PD students who are allowed to take one of these courses in addition to clerkship courses could obtain an add-on budget for federal financial aid to meet the additional expense. The annualized tuition and fees through the state do not cover these courses, as they are offered through Continuing Education, with off-book fees.
4PD students are not eligible for these courses.
PharmD students must be enrolled in 4 or more hours in the summer to be eligible for financial aid.
Tuition will not be reduced in subsequent terms if summer off-book electives are taken. Tuition is assessed in a block manner and there are plenty of ‘covered’ electives in the curriculum (http://www.cop.ufl.edu/education/student-affairs/academics/class-schedules-and-registration/electives-all-semesters/).
