5. Honorable Mention.-On the completion of the work of the Junior Colleges, honorable mention is made of all students whose average grade reaches a certain standard fixed by the University.

6. Information in Detail.-Information in detail concerning the organization, work, and regulations of the Junior Colleges may be found in the Under. graduate Handbook.

UNCLASSIFIED STUDENTS 1. Admission.-Undergraduate students not seeking a degree may be admitted to the courses of instruction offered in the University through the Examiner's Office, under the following conditions: (a) The student must not be less than twenty-one years of age. (6) There must be a sufficient reason for not entering a regular course. (c) Unclassified students are not received for elementary subjects only. For example, students are not received for beginning French, beginning German, etc., unless advanced work in some other department is also taken.

2. Selection of Courses.-Unclassified students may take any courses for which their preparation fits them. The decision as to what constitutes adequate preparation rests with the instructors of courses elected, who may require such examination as they deem proper. For formal examinations the usual fee for admission examinations is charged.

3. Status of Unclassified Students. It is understood that the admission of unclassified students to the University is a privilege which will be terminated in the case of any individual, if, at any time, the Faculties have reason to believe that the best use is not being made of it.

It is also understood that when a student has admission and college credits amounting to fifteen units (see p. 98, secs. 3 and 4), he may on recommendation of the Dean, and by a vote of the Faculty of the Junior Colleges, be admitted to a Junior College.

4. Requirements.- Unclassified students are subject to all the general regulations of the University pertaining to undergraduate students, including Chapel assembly, and Physical Culture, unless more than one-half their work is in the Senior Colleges or in the Graduate Schools. GENERAL INFORMATION CONCERNING THE SENIOR COLLEGES

1. Divisions. The students of the Senior Colleges are classed in six divisions, according to the number of majors' credit on the University records. The sixth division includes students in the Senior Colleges with a total credit (including Junior College credits) of less than 21 majors; the fifth, those with 21, but less than 24; the fourth, those with 24, but less than 27; the third, those with 27 but less than 30; the second, those with 30, but less than 33; the first, those with 33 or more.

2. Senior College Council.-Twelve students, two from each division, compose the Senior College Council, which serves as the executive committee of the students of the Senior Colleges. Early in each quarter an election is held by ballot, under direction of the Dean, for six members who hold office for two quarters. Eligibility for the office of councilor is subject to the same conditions as eligibility for public appearances. Temporary vacancies are filled by appointment by the Dean.

3. Chapel Assembly.-Students in the Senior Colleges meet in Chapel assembly Tuesdays at 10:30 A. M. Attendance is required.

4. Scholarships.-For scholarship and aids to students see pp. 124–26.

5. Honors in the Senior Colleges.-Honors are awarded in the Senior Colleges as follows: (a) The Bachelor's degree is awarded with honors to candidates whose average grade reaches a certain standard fixed by the Uni. versity. (b) Honors in Departments are awarded with the degree to candidates whose average grade reaches a certain standard and who have completed with distinction not less than six majors in a department or not less than nine majors in two closely related departments. (c) Special honors are awarded to candidates who complete with distinction certain additional work prescribed by the department. This may be performed by the election of a fourth course during each of not more than five quarters, which shall not count toward a degree, nor require an additional fee.

6. College Credit for Professional Work.-Students who plan to pursue professional work in the Divinity School, the Law School, the College of Education, or in the Medical Courses are enabled to shorten considerably the time required to secure the collegiate and the professional degrees under a plan which counts toward the Bachelor's degree certain work in the professional schools. Thus the last year of residence as an undergraduate may be used entirely for professional work in the Law or Divinity Schools, or in the College of Education, and the last two years for work in Medicine, provided that all college requirements for the Bachelor's degree have been satisfied. The details of these arrangements may be learned by consulting the special Circulars of Information of the Professional Schools.

By arrangement between the University and the Institute and Training School of the Young Men's Christian Association, students who have completed in residence at the University the requirements of the Junior College, and who desire to prepare themselves for secretarial work in the Young Men's Christian Association, are permitted to substitute for nine majors of the Senior College work an equivalent amount of study pursued at the Institute and Training School. The Bachelor's degree will be conferred upon such students, provided that the other Senior College requirements are satisfied in residence at the University, and, in particular, that the work of the last quarter shall be performed in residence at the University.

ORGANIZATION The College of Commerce and Administration has been created to provide professional training for the practical work of business and administration in various branches. It is governed by a special Faculty, composed of all those giving instruction in the College, subject to the general control of the Senate, and it has a separate Dean as administrative officer. Students are subject to the regulations of the Faculty of Commerce and Administration, and they will be enrolled in this College as candidates for the degree of Ph.B. Higher degrees will be given for additional work accomplished after the Bachelor's degree has been obtained.

PURPOSE This College was organized in response to the growing demand for courses within the University which should fit men for careers in the practical professions of Banking, Transportation, Trade and Industry, Journalism, and Consular and Foreign Commercial Service by training them to think in the problems which must arise in those occupations. This work, however, should be distinguished from the technical work of the office or shop, which must always be obtained in actual business. Yet the youths who intend to go from the high school directly into the counting-room or the shop are advised that they will be better business men if they receive thorough training in the principles which underlie their respective occupations. The purely technical courses of mechanics and engineering given in schools of technology will here be supplemented by those bearing on the economic, financial, and political sides of their professions. Work of this broader character will better enable students to assume positions of leadership and responsibility; and after this training the students should more easily acquire the routine technicalities of business than those whose minds have not been made flexible and acute. The students may expect to obtain from their courses of study much the same general results as are gained from the ordinary undergraduate electives, while at the end they will be better qualified for direct participation in one of the active careers of commerce and administration.

CURRICULUM The work of the College of Commerce and Administration is on the same plane as that of the other undergraduate Colleges of the University. The entrance requirements and the amount of work required for the Bachelor's degree (four years) are the same. In accordance with the general organi. zation of the University, the first two years of College work constitute the Junior College of Philosophy, on the completion of which a certificate and the title of Associate are given and the student enters the Senior College of Commerce and Administration. In each College eighteen majors are required, those of the Senior College being classified in special groups.

THE WORK OF THE JUNIOR COLLEGE The eighteen majors of the Junior College include the following courses which are required of all students:

Majors
Political Economy (courses 1 and 2)
