SUMMER SESSION, 1907
The Summer Session of the University of California for 1907 will be held in Berkeley, beginning Monday, June 24, extending over six weeks, and closing Saturday, August 3. For entrance no formal examinations will be required, but admission will be granted upon application when it shall appear to the Faculty that the applicant is of good moral character and of sufficient maturity and intelligence to profit by the exercises of the Session. Courses will be offered in the following subjects:
Instruction will be given not only by members of the regular Faculty of the University, but by a number of well known men of letters and of science from Eastern universities and from Europe.
The work in Physics, Chemistry, and Geology will consist of practical laboratory courses, supplemented by lectures on the principles involved. Progress in developing the methods and fixing clearly the aim of such work has been so rapid that the best results have not yet found their way into books.
This fact enhances the importance to teachers of the opportunity thus offered. In Physics and Chemistry provision will be made for students and applicants who wish to do experimental work in preparation for university matriculation.
The work in Physical Geography will include field excursions, and will be of especial value to teachers of this subject in the secondary schools.
To insure adequate arrangements in due season, and to facilitate prompt communication with prospective students in case of change in present plans, all persons who desire to attend any of the courses are urgently requested to notify the Recorder of the Faculties on or before Wednesday, June 11, using the blank form of application appended to this announcement. All fees must be paid in advance, at the opening of the Summer Session, to the Secretary of the University, at his office in California Hall.
Persons in attendance at the Summer Session will be allowed to enroll according to the following classification :
1. Teachers: including all who are following the teaching vocation, whether in public schools, private schools, or other institutions of learning. Students of this class may upon satisfying the requirements have their work count as credit toward a degree.
2. Undergraduates and Graduates: to this class belong all persons who are pursuing a course of study in any college or university. They may receive credit for work taken in the Summer Session subject to the approval of the institutions in which they are registered.
3. Auditors: any person desiring to hear courses of lectures, or occasional lectures (not for credit), may secure a ticket of general admission on payment of the regular fee ($12). Such tickets are obtainable by mail. Address the Recorder of the Faculties of the University of California, Berkeley, California. All checks should be made payable to the Regents of the University of California.
The tuition fee will be twelve (12) dollars, regardless of the number of courses taken. The fee will be required of those who wish to attend as auditors merely, as well as of those who wish to undertake systematic class work and examination.
Only registered students and auditors of the Summer Session will be admitted to lectures and meetings of classes.
The laboratory fee in Physics will be $5. In Chemistry there will be a deposit of $15, of which amount $5 will be returned at the end of the course, less the cost of apparatus that is broken or lost. All necessary apparatus and chemicals, with the exception of platinum ware and small weights, will be furnished by the University.
In 1908 the fee required of all attending the Summer Session will be fifteen (15) dollars, which will include tui. tion and the privileges of the Students' Infirmary (medical services and dispensary).
EXAMINATION AND CREDIT.
There will be no general period of final examinations. The matter of examinations for credit will be left in the hands of the instructors. The regular hours for recitation, etc., may be used for such examinations as may be necessary; or instructors may make special appointments with their classes for this purpose.
It is intended that the University credit shall be given only to attendants who are qualified to do systematic University work. In the absence of formal entrance requirements, the instructor in charge of a given course is to be the judge of the qualifications of candidates for credit. The instructor will enroll as regular students and as candidates for credit only such attendants as present to him, at the outset of the work, satisfactory evidence of preparation for the course to be undertaken.
In general, credit will be given at the rate of one unit for fifteen exercises. A course of five lectures weekly during six weeks would have a credit value of two units. Credit may be given, in due proportion, for a smaller number of exercises, when these are of more than the usual length (which for lectures and recitations is about fifty-three minutes).
The normal amount of credit obtainable during the session, by a student who devotes his whole time to courses strictly of university grade, is six units. A bachelor's degree represents 124 or more units of credit, distributed according to the requirements of the college in which the degree is conferred.
Special efforts will be made during the Summer Session to bring teachers attending it into touch with visiting superintendents, principals, and other school authorities.
Board and lodging may be obtained in Berkeley for from $25 to $35 per month. The accommodations are ample.
Throughout the Summer Session the University Library will be open on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Y.M.C.A. and Y.W.C.A.; University Calendar.
The library privileges, including the home use of books, as accorded to regular University students, will be extended to students in the summer courses. No additional fee is required. Persons who may desire to pursue independent courses of reading or study, during the Summer Session, without attending any of the regular exercises, may have full library privileges, upon application to the Librarian, and upon payment of $10 as a deposit. In every case the deposit, less unpaid fines or charges, is returned at the close of the session.
Y.M.C.A. AND Y.W.C.A.
The Young Men's and Young Women's Christian Associations publish, jointly, a Students' Handbook, containing a map of the University campus and vicinity, a directory of churches, of University organizations, and of important points about Berkeley ; also street car and train time tables, college songs and yells, etc. The handbook is distributed free to students in the Summer Session. It will be issued about June 15.
Stiles Hall, the Association Building, is open daily from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. The Y.M.C.A. and Y.W.C.A. will maintain an Information Bureau during the opening days of the Summer Session. The lounging and reading rooms and the services of the General Secretaries are at the disposal of students of the Summer Session.
The University of California CALENDAR will be issued every Friday throughout the Summer Session. The CalENDAR contains announcements of lectures, University meetings, exhibits, meetings of University organizations, etc., and information concerning the library, museums, art galleries, observatories, and other parts of the University of interest to visitors. It will be mailed to any address for the six weeks of the Summer Session for 25 cents. During the
