University College is the college through which the University of Chicago conducts afternoon, evening, and Saturday classes in college subjects for those who find it impossible or inconvenient to attend regular classes at the University quadrangles. It was formerly called "The College for Teachers," as designed chiefly for the benefit of active teachers of Chicago and vicinity. This service the college still performs, though its courses are open to all persons upon conditions similar to those in the Colleges at the quadrangles. Afternoon and Saturday classes are held in Association Building, 153 LaSalle Street. Classes are organized in other sections of the city upon application of a sufficient number of students.


1. Regular Students.—Admission to regular standing in University College is granted to the following classes of students: (a) To those who have fulfilled the requirements for admission to any one of the Junior Colleges, and have passed the entrance examinations. (b) To graduates of schools affiliated or co-operating with the University who present certificates covering fifteen units of admission requirements. (c) To teachers in the public or private schools of Chicago or vicinity who have completed a four-years course in a Chicago high school or the equivalent thereof.

2. Unclassified Students.-Persons who have not had the requisite amount of preparatory training for registration as regular students and who are not seeking degrees, are admitted as unclassified students to courses for which, in the judgment of the Dean and instructors, they are prepared. But unclassified students are expected to classify as soon as possible.


Students who have completed work in universities, colleges, and normal schools may be granted advanced standing by the University upon presentation of certificates properly executed. Probationary advanced standing is granted by the Dean on work for which students have no college statements, for entrance into courses for whose prerequisites satisfactory claims are established, with the understanding that, if the work is successfully completed, credit will be given for those prerequisite courses. Teachers and others are thus enabled to earn credit for studies privately pursued.


Candidates for Degrees.-Students intending to become candidates for any degree must comply with the conditions prescribed for regular students in the rules of the University. (See Sec. IV. THE WORK OF THE COLLEGES, pp. 113-19).


The College of Religious and Social Science was established by the Trustees of the University of Chicago co-ordinate with the (undergraduate) College of Arts and Literature, the College of Science, and the College of Commerce and Administration. It is under the general supervision of the Faculty of the Divinity School. Courses are given by members of various departments of the University named below. The Dean of the Divinity School is to be consulted by all students of the college prior to their registration. The work in the college leads to the degree of Ph.B., and all students are subject to the general regulations of the University governing candidacy for such a degree. Graduate students who are registered in the Graduate Divinity School may become candidates for D.B., A.M., or Ph.D. degrees.

The college is intended for the following classes of students: (1) Students preparing to be Y. M. C. A. secretaries, or to fill other like positions. (2) Students preparing for the work of medical missionaries, it being pre

sumed that such students will pursue first a course in this college and then a medical course. (3) Students preparing for the Christian ministry who, by reason of age or other circumstances, cannot afford the time for a separate college and divinity course. (4) Students preparing for various forms of philanthropic work, such as secretaryships of bureaus of associated charities, chaplaincies, or teaching positions in correctional institutions, etc.

The work of the College of Religious and Social Science is on the same plane as that of the other undergraduate colleges of the University. The entrance requirements are equivalent, and the amount of work required for a Bachelor's degree (four years) is the same. In accordance with the general organization of the University, the first two years of the College of Religious and Social Science constitute the Junior College, on the completion of which a certificate and the title of Associate are given and the student enters the Senior College. In each college eighteen majors are required.

The curriculum of the School is arranged, as far as possible, to accommodate the different classes of students who may be enrolled in its courses. The main difference lies between students who are planning to enter the ministry and those who are intending to enter general religious or philanthropic work. For more detailed information, see the Circular of Information of the Divinity School.

Students may also secure free table board by serving as waiters in the University Commons.
