beginning of any term not later than the first term of the senior year, provided he appears, on examination, to be well versed in the following subjects:

a. In the studies required for admission to the freshman class of the course which he proposes to enter. But diplomas and certificates will be received for certain of these studies, as stated on pages 50, 51. b. In all the studies already required of the class to which admission is sought, or in accepted equivalents therefor.

In a subject in which examinations are held only at stated times the candidates may, at the option of the department concerned, be required to wait until the first regularly recurring examination.

2. Without Full Examination. Applicants for a baccalaureate degree coming from other colleges and universities, may be admitted provisionally to such standing and upon such terms as the Faculty concerned may deem equitable in each case, regard being had to the applicant's previous course of study, and to the evidence of proficiency exhibited. Every such candidate for a baccalaureate degree is required, at the time of making his application, to forward to the Secretary of the Faculty concerned, (application for admission to the Academic Department should be forwarded to the Registrar of the University) along with a catalogue of the institution in which he has studied, a careful statement, duly certified, of the studies which he has pursued, and the degree of proficiency attained therein, including his record at the entrance examinations and a letter of honorable dismissal. This statement should be made as full as possible, giving details of subjects taken, authors read, and in mathematics, the textbooks used. To avoid delay in arranging the course, these credentials should be presented at an early date in order that the status of the applicant may be determined as far as is feasible before his arrival. Applications for credit in all subjects for which credit is desired, must be made at the time of the admission of the applicant, and not be postponed to any later date in his course.

A student who has thus been admitted provisionally to a class, is considered to be in full and regular standing in that class, if, having taken the regular studies of the course he give proof, by passng term examinations, that he is able to go on satisfactorily with the class to which he has been temporarily assigned. Should he be unable to pass these examinations, special examinations may then be held or the terms of his admission revised, and he shall take the position and rank to which he may thereby be found entitled.

Admission to the Graduate Department.-Applications for admission to the Graduate Department are to be addressed to the Dean of the University Faculty. See page 68.



At the beginning of every term each student must obtain a Certificate of registration from the Registrar of the University, and no student, after having been once admitted to the University, will be allowed to register after the close of Registration Day, except by special permission of the Faculty concerned.


Students in all courses register at the beginning of the collegiate year at the Registrar's office for the work of the entire year. No credit will be allowed for work not so registered. Changes in registration will not be allowed later than one week after Registration Day in the fall term except by special permission of the Faculty concerned.


In the Academic Department, students may take twelve to eighteen hours; but no student will be graduated until he has passed success_ fully examinations in work which, including all the required work of his course, shall amount to an aggregate of fifteen hours a week during the entire four years, exclusive of the requirement of drill and gymnasium.

In the technical courses, the number of hours required each term may be seen in the detailed statement of those courses.

In all courses, two hours and a half of laboratory work, and, in the technical courses, three hours of drafting or shop work, are regarded as the equivalent of one recitation or lecture.


The annual tuition fee, in the College of Law, in the State Veterinary College and the College of Forestry, (except as below) and in the courses in Arts, Philosophy, and Science, for both graduates and undergraduates, is $100, $40 to be paid at the beginning of the first term, $35 at the beginning of the second, and $25 at the beginning of the third; in all other courses (except as below), for both graduates

and undergraduates (including candidates for advanced degrees in absentia in which case the whole fee is to be paid in advance), and for Special students, it is $125, $50 to be paid at the beginning of the first term, $40 at the beginning of the second, and $35 at the beginning of the third. The annual tuition fee in the Medical College

is $150.

These fees must be paid at the office of the Treasurer within twenty days after the registration day announced in the calendar.

Tuition is free to students with state scholarships; to New York State students in the State Veterinary College and in the College of Forestry; to students pursuing the prescribed course in Agriculture and intending to complete that course; and to special and graduate students in Agriculture taking at least two-thirds of their entire work in the departments of agriculture, horticulture, and in the courses in agricultural chemistry and economic entomology.

Students taking work in Sibley College are charged $5 per term for material and extra expenses.

An incidental fee of $5 per term, to cover cost of materials used, is required of all students in Agriculture, except those in the first two years of the regular course.

A fee of $5, to cover expenses of graduation, degrees, etc., is charged to each person taking the baccalaureate degree. This fee must be paid at least ten days before Commencement.

The fee charged for an advanced degree is $10, and it must in all cases be paid at least ten days before Commencement.

Every person taking laboratory work or practicums in chemistry, physics, zoology, botany, or entomology, must deposit with the Treasurer security for the materials to be used in the laboratory or in the practicums. Supplies in the chemical and physical departments are furnished at New York City list prices. Students residing in University buildings must pay their room bills one term in advance. All the members of the University are held responsible for any injury done by them to its property.


The expense of text-books, instruments, etc., varies from $25 to $75

per annum.

The cost of living in Ithaca, including board, room, fuel, and lights, varies from $4 to $10 per week. By the formation of clubs, students are sometimes able to reduce their expenses to $3.50 per week for room and board, and occasionally to even less than that amount.

A fair estimate of the yearly expenses is from $300 to $500, but much depends upon the personal tastes of the student.

The cost for board, rent of furnished room, fuel and lights, in Sage College and Sage College Cottage, which are exclusively for women, varies from $5 to $6.50 a week. A student occupying alone one of the best rooms pays $6.50 a week. If two occupy such a room together, the price is $5.75. Those occupying less desirable rooms, with two in a room, pay $5 a week each. Both buildings are warmed by steam, lighted by electricity, and, in most cases, the sleeping apartment is separated from the study.

The responsibility for the conduct of the students living in Sage College and the Cottage rests with the Warden of Sage College.

Letters of inquiry in regard to board and rooms at the Sage College and the Cottage should be addressed to Mr. G. F. Foote, Business Manager of Sage College, Ithaca, N. Y.


The First Degree.

The degrees of Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Philosophy, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Laws, Bachelor of the Science of Agriculture, Bachelor of the Science of Forestry, Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, Doctor of Medicine, Bachelor of Architecture, and the corresponding degrees of Civil Engineer and Mechanical Engineer, are conferred after the satisfactory completion of the respective courses.

In the case of students entering the Academic Department in and after 1897, the single degree of Bachelor of Arts will be conferred.

All these courses, except the courses in Law and Veterinary Medicine, require four years for their completion; and no student is allowed to graduate in less than four years of actual residence (except in case of admission to advanced standing, as elsewhere provided for), without special permission of the Faculty concerned; which permission will not be granted until the applicant has been in the University at least one year; nor will it be granted after the first term of the year in which he proposes to graduate.

The courses in Law and Veterinary Medicine require three years each for their completion.

Special Mention.

Students in the Academic Department who shall devote at least five hours, with marked proficiency, during the last two years to any single subject, and pass the requisite examinations, may upon application on or before June 1, receive mention of the fact with their diplomas. The applicant must have taken an average of at least five

hours of work throughout the two years, and in no term have fallen below four hours.

Teachers' Certificates.

Certificates of scholarly fitness to teach, will, upon application on or before June 1, be given to such graduates of the Academic Department as have successfully pursued the first course on the Science and Art of Teaching, (see under Philosophy) or that portion of it which relates to the general theory of education, together with the course on the history of education, and have besides attained marked proficiency in at least five hours of advanced work for two years, in each subject for which the Teacher's certificate is given, in such subjects as offer five or more hours of such work.


The thesis must represent some phase of the student's principal line of work during the later years of his course. The subject of the thesis must receive the written approval of the professor in charge of the study to which it appertains, and with such approval must be left with the Registrar not later than the fifteenth day of October by students in the general courses, and not later than the second Friday of the second term by students in the technical courses, in order to be announced, and accepted by the Faculty concerned, without whose permission no change in the subject can thereafter be made. In order to be acceptable, the thesis must have the character of a scholarly dissertation on the subject chosen, or, in technical courses, actual work in designing or research; and if finally accepted by the Faculty concerned, it will entitle the writer to a credit of two hours a week for three terms of the senior year in the general courses, or, in the technical courses, as specified elsewhere. The copy of the thesis presented to the Faculty shall, if accepted, become the property of the University. The merit of the thesis will be judged not only from a technical point of view, but also from the point of view of its literary workmanship; and its merits, as judged from these two points of view, will be taken into account in determining the standard of the student for graduation. A standard form and size for theses has been adopted, said size to be eight by ten and one-half inches.
