Recognizing Research Excellence

Students are responsible for documenting their own completion of the program requirements on the REPU Canvas page throughout their undergraduate research career. This course is supervised by the Center for Undergraduate Research and will be used to maintain a record of activities completed to fulfill the REPU requirements. Upon successful completion and documentation of REPU requirements, students will be recognized by the Center for Undergraduate Research as a REPU scholar and awarded graduation chords that signify their exemplary participation in research.

To be recognized at graduation, all requirements must be completed 10 weeks prior to graduation. 


The Research Excellence Program for Undergraduates:

  • Introduces students to the breadth of research at UF
  • Prepares students to become part of the research community at UF
  • Offers students mentorship opportunities
  • Encourages students to publish and present their research
  • Recognizes students who achieve significant research experience
