Earlier Sessions.

of the following persons:

The University of California held its first regular Summer Session in 1900, though summer courses in several departments had been given during the years 1891-99. In the summer of 1919 the total enrollment, not including the Summer School of Surveying, was 3312. Sixteen hundred and sixty-seven were teachers; of these 1138 came from California, 502 from other states, 27 from foreign countries. In the Summer Session in Los Angeles, the enrollment was 906. Purpose of the Sessions.

The courses in the Summer Session are designed to meet the needs 1. Teachers who wish to increase their professional skill, to revise and extend their knowledge of a chosen field, or to qualify in new subjets, preparing to meet the special demand for instruction in Americanization, commercial subjects, biology, physics, chemistry, general science, physical education, manual arts, and vocational agriculture. (With state and federal aid, under the Smith-Hughes 'Act, special Summer Session courses are offered at the University Farm, Davis, for those preparing to teach vocational agriculture and the supplemental vocational subjects in Cali

Teachers who desire to be prepared for service in vocational schools and classes maintained under the provisions of the State and Federal Vocational Education Acts, and the recent State Compulsory Part-Time Education Act, which becomes effective with the beginning of the school year 1920. The courses designed primarily for this purpose are listed

on page 140 of this bulletin.

2. School superintendents, supervisors, and other officers. Supervisors of agricultural education, drawing and art, commercial subjects, music, physical education, and home economics will find work especially suited to their needs.

3. Graduate students, to whom the advantages of smaller classes and the more direct and intimate personal contact with the professors in charge are peculiarly possible during the Summer Session.

Undergraduate students, and especially those registered in the fall or spring sessions of the University, may use a portion of the vacation to take up studies for which they are unable to find room in their regular programmes, or to make up deficiencies, or to shorten their courses.

5. Properly recommended high-school graduates who are about to enter upon regular university courses and who desire to broaden their preparation for university work. To meet their needs courses are offered in chemistry, commerce, drawing, French, German, graphic art, Greek, home economics, Italian, mathematics, physics, and Spanish.

6. Housewives, graduate nurses, social workers, Americanization workers, students of public health, and all adults who are qualified to pursue with profit any course given, whether or not they are engaged in teaching or study.

The courses in the Intersession are designed primarily to meet the needs of students attending, or about to attend, the courses of the fall or spring sessions.

1. Lower Division students will find opportunity to enroll in a number of courses prerequisite to advanced study from which they were excluded in the present year because of the over-crowding of the University.

2. Upper Division students in the larger departments will find oppor. tunity to continue their work in smaller classes.

3. Graduate students will find opportunity to enroll in major Upper Division Courses and in seminars which are to be continued during the Summer Session.

In general, by combining the Intersession and the Summer Session, it will be possible for students to obtain, in a single summer, credit for one semester's residence and for twelve units of work, thus reducing by six months the time required for completion of work for a degree. Between the closing of the Summer Session and the opening of the fall semester there remains an interval of two weeks for vacation purposes.

Faculty.

The faculty of the Summer Session will include not only members of the regular faculties of the University but also a number of men of letters and science from Eastern universities.

All persons who desire to attend any of the courses of the Summer Session are urgently requested to notify the Recorder of the Faculties on or before Wednesday, June 2, using the blank form of application at the end of this bulletin.

All persons who desire to attend any of the Intersession courses are urgently requested to notify the Recorder of the Faculties on or before Wednesday, April 21, using the blank form of application at the end of this bulletin.

Compliance with this request will facilitate the making of adequate arrangements by the University, and will make possible prompt communication with prospective students in case of change in the programmé. Admission Requirements.

Attendants upon the exercises of the Summer Session and Intersession are divided into two broad classes:

A. Auditors.—Any adult of good moral character is permitted to attend all the regular exercises of either of the sessions, as an auditor, upon the filing of an application and the payment of the regular tuition fee of twenty dollars. This may be done by mail. An auditor does not participate in recitations, does not take examinations, and does not receive formal credit on the books of the University either for attendance or for any study or investigation which he may undertake.

B. Students.—While there are no formal admission requirements and no entrance examinations, the officers in charge of admissions will keep in mind the fact that the instruction offered is such as is suitable for students of university grade, and these officers will exercise their diseretion in admitting to student privileges only those applicants who appear to possess the requisite maturity, training, and intelligence. Furthermore, the instructor in charge of a given course may himself require of those who present themselves as students in this course any preliminary test, formal or informal, which he may deem essential to the work proposed.

The University will not, as a rule, admit to the Summer Session or Intersession pupils from the high schools who have not yet completed the four-year high school course. Where an exception is made to this general rule, the pupil will be required to devote himself to courses given primarily or exclusively for matriculation credit, such as the “A” or “B” courses in chemistry, physics, mathematics, drawing, and the languages. And in every such exceptional case the applicant will be required to procure from the principal of his school, and to present at the University, a special testimonial, as evidence of superior scholarship and of unusual fitness for the work proposed.
