Our program follows UF’s calendar with courses offered Spring, Summer-session C, and Fall semesters. For dates and deadlines please see  the UF Graduate School’s academic calendar.

MICM courses are offered Spring and Fall semesters. Summer classes vary. Please reference our teaching schedules for exactly which courses will be offered each term.

To earn a Master of International Construction Management degree a student must successfully complete 11 ICM classes.
Of these 11 classes, ICM 6930 and ICM 6934 are required. The other 9 classes are electives.

  • ICM 6930 is a research methods course (prerequisite to ICM 6934) and should be taken the semester before a student plans to graduate.
  • ICM 6934  consists of conducting research on a chosen topic, writing a report, and presenting that report on campus. Students should only register for this course in their last semester (the semester they are graduating in). Students should make plans to be on campus for one day during their last semester to present their research report to a committee which will consist of three professors who teach ICM courses.

On the day of a student’s research presentation, the student will also take a four hour comprehensive exam which will include a few questions from each course that has been completed.

You should send an email to the graduate advisor, see ICM Registration for details. Please note that you will need to clear any active holds before you can be registered for classes.

May I skip a semester and not register for a course?
Yes, one semester. If you skip two consecutive semesters or more without registering for courses, then you will become inactive. To become an active student again, you will need to reapply and register for classes for the term that you wish to begin again.

Courses can be dropped or added during the drop/add period without a penalty. During Spring and Fall semesters this period is the first week of classes (first 5 days); Summer drop/add is allowed the first 2 days of classes.

The dates for the drop/add period each semester can be found on the UF Graduate School’s website. Reference their Academic Calendar.

A distance education student can order a UF identification card online through Gator 1 Central.  Students cannot order a card until they have registered for a course.
