Policies & Procedures

On February 15, 2005, the Florida Board of Governors mandated that the public universities in Florida develop an Academic Learning Compact (ALC) for each baccalaureate degree program they offer. The Compacts identify the expected core student learning outcomes for degree program graduates in the areas of communication skills, content/discipline knowledge and skills, and critical thinking skills. Students should acquire these skills and knowledge if they successfully follow the prescribed course of study in their declared major, and the Compacts will delineate what students are expected to know and be able to do upon successful completion of their degree program.
