COLLEGE CREDIT FOR PREPARATORY WORK

Claims for advanced standing based on an excess of preparatory work from affiliated and co-operating school are first presented to the Examiner for Secondary Schools.

1. Limitations.-A student whose preparatory-school course has extended over four years only, without extra work in the school, cannot gain from it advanced standing in the University, except for English in advance of the required three units.

Advanced standing for preparatory work is given in language, history, and mathematics taught in the Junior Colleges, and at the rate of one major for each half-unit of excess. Drawing and shop work may also be offered for advanced standing, by examination only, and for a maximum credit of four majors. No claim for advanced standing is considered until the applicant has maintained a good standing in the University for at least two quarters.

1. Examinations.-Credit is allowed without examination only to candi. dates who present certificates from affiliated schools.

Applicants from co-operating schools are required to pass a formal examination, which is taken before the close of the fourth quarter of residence. An official statement regarding claims to be tested by examination is made by the Examiner to the appropriate Departmental Examiner, and applicants present themselves to the Departmental Examiner for examination only after receiving this efficial statement.

3. Shifting admission credits.—No student admitted by certificate with 15 units is allowed later to substitu oth subjects by examination, with a view to gaining advanced standing, except by presenting a satisfactory certifi. cate of instruction in such subjects.

COLLEGE CREDIT FOR COLLEGE WORK

Claims for credits on account of college work done elsewhere are presented to the Examiner for Colleges. In case a possible applicant wishes information, the Examiner will furnish an estimate, based on the inquirer's own statement, when the necessary data (indicated upon a blank supplied by the Office of Admissions) are furnished. Estimates cannot be furnished unless this statement is clear and complete.

1. Evidence required.-Before actual admission the applicant must present an official certificate showing: (1) that he has been honorably dismissed; (2) what admission requirements were satisfied by the applicant in the college from which he comes (for this purpose in addition to the certificate, a catalogue of date concurrent with his admission may be needed from all but the best-known institutions); (3) the duration of his attendance; (4) a transcript of his college record, showing (a) by subjects the credit in the units used for record, (b) the number of such units required for graduation, and (c) in general or specifically the grade of his scholarship.

2. Proposed and actual credits.-When the required data are furnished, the Examiner issues to the accepted applicant a card showing the number and distribution of the proposed credits. This is presented to the Dean of the College in which he registers as evidence of admission and probable credit. Credit so listed is provisional and is formally determined by the Board of Admissions only on request of the applicant after he has completed two quarters (6 majors) of resident work.

3. Time required.-Advanced standing for college work is granted on cortificate only to students who, after a four-year preparatory course, have completed at least one year's work in a normal school, college, or university of high rank; otherwise advanced standing may be attained only by examination.

4. Amount of credits.-Credit is allowed only for work equivalent to courses in the University. Equal credit is granted only if the admission requirements of the University are fully met; otherwise advanced work will be carried back to cover the preparatory deficiencies, at the rate of one major (five term-hours, three semester-hours) for each half-unit. The maximum credit allowed does not exceed normal credit obtainable in the same time at the University, i. e., three majors a quarter. If the baccalaureate degree is sought, the total credit does not exceed 27 majors, three querters of resident work being the minimum requirement for a degree.

5. Presented at outset.-Applicants specify at the outset all claims for credit. Except by special action of the faculty, no claim not so presented will be considered after the formal determination of credit, unless the work on wbich it is based was done after the previous claim was filed.

6. Private work.-Students are not permitted to gain credit by examination for work done privately or by correspondence while in residence at the University, unless written consent to the arrangement is obtained in advance from the Departmental Examiner concerned.

7. Examinations.-Any claim considered by the Examiner as insufficiently certified is referred by him to the appropriate Departmental Examiner. An official statement regarding the claim is issued to the applicant, who is thus authorized to present the case for adjudication to the Departmental Examiner named thereon. No credits are recorded unless certified on this official credential.

8. Professional work.-Credit toward the baccalaureate degree may be allowed for professional courses in law, medicine, education, or theology. It is limited in amount to 9 majors, and must be certified in all cases by the Dean of the corresponding professional school in the University, who for this purpose acts as a Departmental Examiner, or delegates the work to special examiners (see preceding paragraph). The foregoing refers to formal courses of instruction. It is not possible to assign credit for experience in the prac. tice of any profession.

IV. THE WORK OF THE COLLEGES $1. The Unit of Work.-A course which meets four or five hours a week throughout the quarter is called a major. A course which meets daily throughout a term is called a minor. A course which meets two hours daily for a term is called a double minor; for the quarter, a double major.

§ 2. Amount of Work.--Thirty-six majors are required for a Bachelor's degree. Of these thirty-six, eighteen, if properly selected (§ 6 below), render a student eligible for the title of Associate.

$3. The College Work is of three kinds: (a) Contingently required in college, i. e., if not presented on admission (see Table A, p. 114). (6) Required in College of all candidates for a given degree (see Table B, p. 115). (c) Elective, normally about eighteen majors in the A.B., Ph.B. (Lit.), and S.B. curricula. The amount of electives may be reduced because the entrance units fail to conform to the advised grouping (§ 6, p. 98, and Table A below).

NOTE.- In the curriculum of the College of Commerce and Administration (a Senior College following the Junior College of Philosophy) the student will elect in the Senior college one of four groups of required courses (Banking, Transportation, Trade and Industry, Journalism).
