Internet Explorer 7 Browser Requirements
 
Below you will find configuration settings for Internet Explorer 7. Please note that as of 09/24/2010 Internet Explorer 6 is not supported by myUFL. These settings provide the best user experience for the myUFL system (my.ufl.edu) and ensure all portal services will work as expected. Microsoft Internet Explorer version 7 and 8 are the only officially supported Browsers. This upgrade is a first step in preparing for the financial upgrade that will occur in spring 2011.
