Students desiring to matriculate in this College from foreign countries will be permitted to substitute satisfactory courses in History, Law, Language and Literature in lieu of similar preliminary requirements offered by high schools accredited to the University of California. A knowledge of English sufficient to comprehend the course of study will be required, in all cases to be determined by the official examiner.
ADMISSION TO ADVANCED GRADES ON CERTIFICATES.
The College will receive into the advanced grades of second year and third year only such students as hold certificates of having passed examinations in the studies of the first year or second year grades respectively, in a school which demands the same or higher preliminary educational requirements, and maintains the curriculum; except a student presenting satisfactory evidence of graduation from a reputable medical college, who may then be received into the second-year grade, provided he make up such subjects taught in the first year as he has not previously studied.
All students who have successfully pased their examinations for advanced standing and have complied with all the rules of the College of Dentistry shall have their certificates given or mailed to them within thirty days after such examinations shall have been completed, such certificates to be pledges to any college to whom the holders may apply, that the requisite number of terms have been spent in the College of Dentistry, University of California.
Special students may be admitted on such entrance requirements as the Faculty may determine.
They will be required to attend courses they desire to pursue with the same regularity as the regular students, and will pay the regular tuition fee; no diploma or certificate shall be issued at the close of such special study.
Applicants desiring to register as special students will be required to indicate what subjects they desire to pursue, and to present satisfactory credentials for matriculation in said subjects.
Matriculants who desire to postpone the pursuit of their studies in the College of Dentistry after matriculation on account of sickness or other good cause to be determined by the faculty, shall present a written application for leave of absence to the Dean, which may be allowed for a period of one year.
THE MASTER'S DEGREE.
Bachelors of Arts, Letters, or Sciences of this University who are pursuing regular courses leading to a degree in the College of Dentistry will be recommended to the appropriate Faculty for an appropriate master's degree (M.A., M.L., or M.S.), under the following conditions:
(a) The candidate, already a bachelor, must have finished creditably two years of the curriculum of the professional college.
(b) He must have received credit, in addition to his work for the professional degree, for a seminar or research course of the value of four units; and such seminar or research course must be approved by the Academic Council; and he must present a dissertation or thesis, subject to the usual regulation for the master's degree.
EXTRACTS FROM REGULATIONS.
The following are the regulations governing undergraduate attendance, except such as are given elsewhere in this Announcement:
Eighty per cent. of attendance will be required in all lecture and laboratory courses as well as in general attendance.
Every student is required to attend all his class exercises and to satisfy the instructor in each of his courses of study, in such way as the instructor may determine, that he is performing the work of the course in a systematic manner.
Any instructor, with the approval of the Dean, may at any time exclude from his course any student who, in his judgment, has neglected the work of the course. And student thus excluded shall be recorded as having failed in the course of study from which he is excluded, unless the Faculty shall otherwise determine.
No student will be excused from assigned examinations.
No book, manuscript, or other source of information, shall be brought into any examination room, except by the explicit order of the examiner. Nor shall any student, in the course of an examination, have any communication with another student for any reason whatever.
Any student tardy at an examination will be debarred from taking it, unless an excuse for such tardiness entirely satisfactory to the examiner be rendered.
A fee of five dollars is charged for every special examination. Any supplementary or deferred test required by an instructor of a student for the purpose of making up a course left (incomplete" is regarded as a special examination. Students taking two or more such examinations in courses taken during any one-half year will
be charged not to exceed ten (10) dollars for all such examinations, instead of being charged at the rate of five dollars for each examination.
GRADES OF SCHOLARSHIPS. The results of examinations, together with term work when a record of the latter is kept, will be ranked and reported to the Recorder in five grades. The 1st grade denotes marked excellence. The 2nd grade indicates that the student's work has been thoroughly satisfactory. The 3rd grade denotes a pass. Courses in which students have obtained a 4th grade will not be credited to them, except upon the condition of passing a reëxamination. The 5th grade indicates failure and the necessity of repeating not only the examinations of a course, but also the regular work, in accordance with these regulations. The report in case of absence from an examination, or of failure to perform any of the allotted tasks in a given course, is incomplete. Work so reported must be made up
within a year.
Reëxaminations are permitted only for the purpose of removiug deficiencies. Students who have received second grade or third grade in a given course are not allowed reëxaminations for the purpose of improving their grading.
CONDITIONS AND FAILURES. For the removal of conditions, students shall have the privilege of taking the regular mid-year or annual examinations in the subjects in which they are conditioned. Examinations may be held at other times only by the special permission of the Academic Council and on payment of a fee of five dollars.
Opportunity for the removal of matriculation deficiences is offered at the entrance examinations each year in August and in January
Any undergraduate student who is reported as having failed in an examination, or who, after being conditioned, does not pass the reëxamination for the removal of the condition, will be required to repeat every such deficient subject with the class that next takes it; unless, on recommendation of the officer of instruction in charge, the Faculty shall permit him to review a subject in which he is thus deficient with the assistance of an acceptable private tutor.
By resolution of the Faculty, students of the first-year class who have failed to remove conditions by reëxamination in August, provided such conditions or failures exceed one in number, will not be recommended for promotion.
The Faculty has endorsed the Junior Certificate plan of the University to be applied to the third-year class.
This provides that no student is eligible for Senior standing who has any conditions or failures at the beginning of the term.
LEAVE OF ABSENCE.
Prolonged leave of absence must be sought by written petition to the Dean, and the petition must specify the length of time (not more than a year) and the reason for which the leave is desired. An indefinite leave of absence will in no case be granted.
A student must apply for leave to be absent or excuse for having been absent from any college exercise other than an examination, to the officer of instruction in charge of such exercise; unless, for unavoidable cause, the student is obliged to absent himself from all college exercises for one day or several days, in which case the Dean will issue a written excuse for leave. Leave to be absent from an examination must be sought by written petition to the proper officer of instruction.
Students who discontinue their work without formal plea of absence do so at the risk of having their registration privileges curtailed or entirely withdrawn.
When any student shall have been continuously absent from his classes for two consecutive weeks, without official leave of absence, the Dean shall notify his parents or guardian that he will be dropped from the roll of the college should not satisfactory explanation of the absence be forthcoming within two weeks.
Students incapacitated by illness or for other good cause (to be determined by the Faculty) may receive credit in lieu of attendance, upon presentation of certificate of physician in charge.
The University authorities expect all students to set and observe among themselves a proper standard of conduct. It is therefore taken for granted that, when a student enters the University, he has an earnest purpose and studious and gentlemanly habits; and this presumption in his favor continues until, by neglect of duty, or ungentlemanly behavior, he reverses it. But if an offense occurs, whether it be against good behavior or academic duty, the University authorities will take such action as the particular occurrence, judged in the light of the attendant circumstances, may seem to them to require. Students who fail to make proper use of the
