Academic honesty is a fundamental principle for the University of Florida. The process of learning and the pursuit of knowledge is diminished by cheating, plagiarism and other acts of academic dishonesty.
The University, the College of Pharmacy, and the medication therapy management graduate program hold students, faculty, and administrators responsible for maintaining the highest level of academic integrity at all times. Accordingly, the University, College, and program will take severe action against students in violation of the academic integrity policies set forth, up to and including expulsion.
UFL Email & Gatorlink
Upon acceptance to the program, students must create a Gatorlink ID, which becomes the major identifier used to access UF email, the e-Learning site, the course registration site, and other UF systems. The Gatorlink ID makes up the first part of the UFL email address (before @ufl.edu). All official UF and program communication will be sent to the student’s UF email account, and UF College of Pharmacy policy prohibits the forwarding of this account to non-UF email addresses. Thus, we expect students to check their UF email accounts regularly.
Students may receive email announcements directly from the UF Graduate School and other administrative offices besides our program office. Please pay close attention to these announcements, as they often provide important information about upcoming academic deadlines. Please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Students can set up their UFL email account about two weeks after they are admitted to the program. To set up a UFL email, follow these steps:
