GENERAL LIST OF PREPARATORY SUBJECTS. Units of Credit.—The amount of work represented both by preparatory or high school subjects and by the University courses is specified quantitatively. In the University a unit signifies one hour per week of recitation or lecture, with preparation therefor, during one half-year. A course of study taken in the preparatory school for one year at five periods per week is valued at 3 units. Laboratory hours not requiring preparation are estimated at a lower rate than recitations and lectures. Units

3.9 * Subject A will hereafter not be required for matriculation, but will be required for Junior standing in all the colleges at Berkeley. An examination in this subject will be given shortly before the close of each half-year. Every intrant admitted to regular first-year or second-year standing is required to take an examination in Sub. ject A before the close of his first half-year's work; failure to take the examination in Subject A at the time required, or failure to pass, has the same effect upon the student's standing as a failure to pass in an ordinary course.

Special students, as heretofore, will be required to pass a test in oral and written expression before entering the University. This test will be conducted for each applicant by his advisor. A student who passes this test is still required to pass Subject A if he desires promotion to Junior standing.

† The dagger indicates subjects for which equivalent courses are offered in the University. For further description of these courses reference should be made to the annual Announcement of Courses.

For the conditions governing credit in subjects 18-21, the applicant should refer to the later pages of this circular. In certain of these subjects no credit is given unless accompanied by credit for other subjects. In some no examinations are given. Credit in 200, 200, and 21 is given only upon examination.

Subjects 6ab1, 15a", 1567, and 15c represent the minimum credit in Latin, French, German, and Spanish, respectively-one year of high school work. Such credit is ordinarily given only upon recommendation, not upon examination.






GROUP I. For matriculation in the Colleges of Letters, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, Commerce and Agriculture, and in the five-year courses in the Colleges of Mechanics, Mining, Civil Engineering, and Chemistry: English, subject 1, 6 units; Foreign Language or Languages, Ancient or Modern, selected from subjects 6, 7, 8, 9, 15—12 units; United States History and Government, subject 5, 3 units; Mathematics, subjects 2 and 3, 6 units; Natural Science, subject 11, 126, 12c, 12d, or 12f, 3 units; Elective, 15 units. Total 45 units.

Applicants may include among their electives not more than 9 units from subjects 18, 19, 20, 21.

The candidate for admission must have chosen his preparatory subjeets in such a way as to have a total of 12 units of subjects designated as “advanced,” including United States history and government, and including one of the following sciences, if taken, with laboratory work, in classes made up of third-year or fourth-year pupils in the high school: physies, chemistry, botany, zoology, physiology. Subjects which may be offered as advanced subjects are as follows: 4a, 46, 5, 7, 9, 11, 12 (excluding sciences given in the first and second years of the high school), 136, 14, 15a', 15a", 156", 156*.

Applicants entering the Colleges of Engineering, or the College of Chemistry, or expecting to take up other courses of study (for example, certain of the courses in Agriculture) presupposing a knowledge of the elements of physics or chemistry, with laboratory practice (matriculation subjects 11, 126), should provide for this work either during the high sehool course or during the University summer sessions. No equivalent for this work is offered during the regular sessions of the University. Applicants for the College of Letters, the College of Social Sciences, or for other courses of study requiring matriculation Latin, subject 6, should notice that the University does not offer instruction in this subject either , during the regular sessions or during the summer sessions.

Caution.-The work for matriculation is so closely related to the work of the freshman and sophomore years in the University, that the matriculation electives cannot be intelligently chosen without reference to the requirements for the Junior Certificate. These requirements are stated in detail on page 80.

GROUP II. For matriculation in the four-year courses in the Colleges of Mechanics, Mining, Civil Engineering, and Chemistry: Subjects 1, 2, 3, 4a (3 units), 45, 5, 11, 12a", 125, 16, 17, and any two of the following subjects: 6, 8, 14, 15a", 156, 15c. Total, 45 units.

For a

For the course in Architecture, the student may matriculate either in Letters, Social Sciences, or Natural Sciences.

For matriculation in the College of Medicine—the four years' course leading to M.D.--the student is required to obtain the Junior Certificate in any of the colleges at Berkeley or to present an equivalent preparation. If he is a candidate both for the bachelor's degree and for M.D. he must complete at least a year of academic work following the Junior Certificate, before entering the College of Medicine.

Prospective students of medicine should include among their matriculation or University studies certain specific subjects, some of which are required by the state law governing the practice of medicine in California and some of which are recommended by the Faculty of the College of Medicine in the interest of thorough professional preparation. statement of these subjects in detail, see page 84.

For admission to the course in Jurisprudence in the Academic colleges, leading to the bachelor's degree at the end of the first year and to the degree of Juris Doctor at the end of the third year, senior standing in the College of Letters or Social Sciences is required. The same privileges are open to regular students in senior standing in the College of Natural Sciences or Commerce, provided they have completed at least six units of matriculation or college Latin.

Colleges of Dentistry and Pharmacy; and Hastings College of the Law.Candidates for the degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery, of Bachelor of Pharmacy, or of Bachelor of Laws, to be conferred after June, 1915, must have satisfied, in addition to the regular professional course, all requirements for the Junior Certificate in an Academic college of the University --i.l., at least six years altogether of high school and college work. The requirements for the Junior ('ertificate are given on page 80. For details concerning admission to these colleges, reference should be made to their respective annual announcements.

Admission with Deficiencies.- The question of admitting an applicant to the University with matriculation deficiencies is decided in each case by the Academic Senate or its committees upon the merits of the case. In general, applicants with less than forty-five units of matriculation credit are not admitted.

All courses taken in the University for the purpose of making up matriculation deficiencies are credited solely on the student's matriculation account, and are not credited as part of the sixty-four units required in the Lower Division for the Junior Certificate. This holds even though the student enters with forty-five units of matriculation credit. For example: a student may enter the University under Group I with fortyfive units of matriculation credit but with only six units of credit in foreign languages. Such a student is conditioned in six units of matriculation work in foreign languages, and these six units, whether taken in the l'niversity or otherwise, form no part of the sixty-four units required in the Lower Division for the Junior Certificate.

SURPLI'S MATRICULATION ('REDIT. Students who bring from accredited preparatory schools credits in excess of the requirements for matriculation must pass an examination at the University in the subjects covered by such credits before these may be counted as canceling any portion of the one hundred and twenty-four or more units required for graduation. In lieu of such examination for advanced credit in a given matriculation subject, the Faculty may accept, as a sufficient evidence of proficiency, a thoroughly satisfactory record (at least second grade) in higher work in the same subject, or in a closely related subject, taken in the University. The preparatory subjects in which advanced credits may be acquired are as follows: 4, 7, 8, 9, 12a', 12a, 12a*, 15, 16, and 17.

An excess matriculation credit in the foregoing list of subjects, or in other subjects, which may be granted upon recommendation or credentials, without examination, may be used to reduce the number of units in these specific subjects prescribed, in the University, for the Junior Certificate, but not to reduce the total number of units required (normally 64) for the Certificate.

STUDENTS AT LARGE. The recommended graduates of accredited secondary schools are admitted to the University to the status of Students at Large on any forty-five units of credit for subjects included in the University's preparatory list. Students entering in this way may take as much University work as is permitted to regular students without matriculation conditions. They will, like all other students in the University, be permitted to enroll only in courses of instruction for which they have the necessary scholastic preparation. By virtue of their status they are not candidates for a degree.

Students at Large who do not offer all the subjects necessary to make up a complete matriculation group according to present requirements for admission will be under the necessity of completing a group after entering the University, provided they wish to become candidates for a degree.

SPECIAL AND LIMITED STUDENTS. The University has no “special courses’’; all courses are organized for regular students—that is, students who have had the equivalent of a good high school education and have been fully matriculated. Special Students
