15. The Academic Year is divided into four quarters. The Summer Quarter is divided into two terms. The year begins with the first day of the Summer Quarter. The Autumn Quarter begins about October first and continues until shortly before Christmas. The Winter Quarter begins about January second and continues eleven to twelve weeks. The Spring Quarter begins approximately a week after the end of the Winter Quarter, and continues eleven to twelve weeks. The Summer Quarter begins immediately after the Spring Quarter and continues about eleven weeks. There is a recess of about a month between the Summer and Autumn Quarters.

16. Work and vacation credit of instructors.-Each resident instructor gives instruction thirty-six weeks of the year, ten hours a week or its equivalent. The instructor takes his vacation in any one of the four quarters, according as it may be arranged, or he may take two vacations of six weeks each at different periods of the year. For every quarter or term in a year he may teach, in addition to the number of hours required, he receives, according as it may be arranged by the President, either an extra full pro. rata vacation or an extra two-thirds pro-rata salary, payable monthly during such vacation period. In case of resignation or death, vacation credit thus earned is paid on the basis of two-thirds pro-rata salary.

With reference to vacation credit the following limitations are to be observed:

1) No obligation against the University for extra vacation credit shall be created except by vote of the Board of Trustees, on recommendation of the President, in each individual case.

2) As a rule no member of the Faculty may acquire at a given time more than nine months extra vacation credit.

3) No member of the Faculty lower in rank than an Associate shall be entitled to obtain extra vacation credit.

17. Convocation.-A quarterly Convocation is held during the last week of each quarter. At this Convocation degrees are conferred upon students who have completed their courses of study.

18. Classification of courses.—Courses of instruction in the University are classified as majors and minors. The minor calls for four or five hours of classroom work, or its equivalent, each week for six weeks; the major, for four or five hours of classroom work, or its equivalent, each week for twelve weeks. A minor calling for eight to ten hours of classroom work, or its equivalent, each week, is called a double minor; a major calling for eight to ten hours of classroom work, or its equivalent, each week, is called a double major. The regular work of a student during each quarter is three majors or their equivalent.

19. Non-resident work. In substituting non-resident work for resident work, the following are the conditions:

a) The non-resident student is required to matriculate in the University, and, before receiving any degree, to spend one year of the time required for it in residence.

b) Non-resident work done under the direction of the University Extension Division of the University of Chicago, when duly completed and reported, will be accepted as meeting the requirement for the Bachelor's degree to the maximum amount of eighteen majors, provided such credit be conditioned upon at least one year of satisfactory work in residence.

c) Non-resident work for an advanced degree will be accepted for not more than one-third of the total requirement for such degree. The candidate will be required to pass the first year of his graduate study in residence at the University, unless he is able to satisfy the head of the department in which his particular work is to be done that he can do the introductory work in a satisfactory manner when not in attendance.

d) The non-resident work for advanced degrees must be performed under the general direction of the head of the department.

e) The examination for credit on a non-resident course must be passed at the University of Chicago, or, if elsewhere, under supervision approved by the University.

f) The final examination for advanced degrees must be passed at the University of Chicago.

20. Divisions and Student Councils.-The students of the Senior Colleges are classified in divisions, according to the number of major credits on the University records. The students of the Junior Colleges are subdivided into college groups, four for men and four for women. From these senior divisions and junior colleges student representatives are chosen to form Senior and Junior Councils. These councils serve as the executive committeos of the students, consider any matters referred to them by the Faculty and report upon the same, and superintend any meetings or celebrations of the students of the Senior and Junior Colleges respectively. The councilors act in connection with the Faculty officers of each division.

21. Fellowships.-The Fellowships of the University are assigned solely on the ground of proficiency already attained in a given department. The Fellow is expected to give one-sixth of his time to some service in connection with the University. He is not permitted while holding a fellowship to do work of any kind for which he receives remuneration, without the permission of the President.

22. Chapel service and public worship.-A daily chapel service is held on week days. Attendance is required one day in each week from students in the Colleges.

23. Cap and gown. The official cap and gown are worn by the instructors and students of the University on appropriate public occasions.

24. Degrees.—The degrees of Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Philosophy, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Education, Master of Arts, Master of Philosophy, Master of Science, Doctor of Philosophy, Bachelor of Theology, Bachelor of Divinity, Bachelor of Laws, and Doctor of Law (J.D.), are conferred upon the recommendation of the several Faculties. Candidates for degrees are recommended only after a residence at the University of at least one year. The (honorary) degrees of Doctor of Divinity, Doctor of Music, and Doctor of Laws are conferred upon the recommendation of appropriate departments or schools confirmed by a four-fifths vote of the University Senate. These degrees are granted only for specific achievements in such fields as scholarship, discovery, or administration. At the Convocation ceremony the President recites the specific ground upon which these degrees are conferred, and the recipients are present in person.

25. Titles and Certificates. The title of Associate is conferred upon students who complete the work of the Junior Colleges, in accordance with the regulations of the Faculty of the Colleges; and the two years certificate of the College of Education is conferred upon students who complete that amount of work according to the regulations of the Faculty of the College of Education.

26. University bills.—(a) The tuition fee is $40 a quarter, except in the Law School where it is $50, and in the Medical Courses where it is $60. Students taking half work or less pay one-half the fee. College students taking more than three courses pay $15 for each course thus added. The matriculation fee, examination fee (on entrance), and special examination fee are each $5. The graduating fee is $10. Laboratory fees depend upon the nature of the course. (b) All University bills are due and payable in advance, on the first day of the quarter. Registration is not complete until bills for the quarter are paid, and accordingly no student with unpaid bills is entitled to attend a University exercise.
