The college year begins on the second Monday in August and ends with the college year at Berkeley. There is a recess of three weeks in December.

The exercises are held in the City Hall, San Francisco.

The classes meet daily at 8:00 and 9:00 A.M. and 4:30 P.M. The address of the Dean is 530 California Street, San Francisco. The office of the Registrar is Room 620, Parrott Building, San Francisco.


Applicants for admission to the Junior Class must be at least eighteen years of age; must deposit with the Registrar certificates of good moral character; and unless otherwise qualified to be admitted, must pass satisfactory examinations in the following subjects:*

1. English. The examination in this subject will presuppose thorough acquaintance with the following works, together with the practical knowledge of grammar and elementary rhetoric implied in such acquaintance: (1) The Lady of the Lake; (2) The Alhambra; (3) Sir Roger de Coverley; (4) Classic Myths; (5) Short Poems: Horatius, The Deserted Village, The Cotter's Saturday Night, The Prisoner of Chillon (or selections from Childe Harold), Winter, Winter Morning Walk, Snow-Bound, Tam o'Shanter, The Ancient Mariner, L'Allegro, Il Penseroso; (6) The Merchant of Venice; (7) Julius Caesar; (8) Macaulay's Warren Hastings.

While the regular examination will, for the present, be upon these subjects without option, schools on the accredited list of the University, may, after consultation with the English Department of the University, avail themselves of such substitutes as the following: For (1), The Lay of the Last Minstrel; for (2), Tom Brown at Rugby, or Ivanhoe; for (3), Addison's Select Essays; for (5), some twelve poems of similar scope and character; for (6) or for (7), Macbeth.

2. Arithmetic. No examination in this subject is required, since the study comes regularly in the grammar school, and its essential processes are involved in Algebra.

3. Algebra. Through quadratic equations; namely, the various methods of factoring, the theory of exponents, integral and fractional, positive and negative, the calculus of radicals, ratio, and proportion; quadratic equations, both single and simultaneous, their solution and their theory, including all the recognized methods of solution and equations reducible to the quadratic form and the formation of equations from given roots.

4. Plane Geometry. Including the general properties of regular polygons, their construction, perimeters, and areas, and the different methods for determining the ratio of the circumference to the diameter.

Subjects are numbered to correspond with those of the general list of preparatory subjects for admission to the Colleges at Berkeley. The amount of work represented by each of the subjects is as given in the General List of Preparatory Subjects in this REGISTER.

5. Civil Government and American History. A knowledge of the principles of government, Federal, State, and local. This requirement presupposes an acquaintance with the History of the United States.

6. Elementary Latin. (a) Translation of easy prose into English. The examination will cover the translation, subject matter, and implied grammar of selected passages from Caesar's Gallic War, Books I-IV; but accredited schools may use any equivalent Latin text. (b) Translation of simple English into Latin prose. This requirement presupposes familiarity with the usual forms and ordinary constructions of the language. Continued training in translating detached sentences illustrative of constructions, and of sentences based on Caesar or an equivalent author, together with a thorough grammatical drill on the work read, is a proper preparation for satisfying this requirement.

7. Advanced Latin. (a) Translation of Latin of average difficulty. The examination will include the tranaslation into idiomatic English of average passages from Cicero's orations against Catiline, for for Archias, and for Pompey's Military Command; Virgil's Eneid, Books I-VI; and some other speech of Cicero to test ability in sight translation. The examination will also include questions on the usual forms and ordinary constructions of the language and on prosody. This requirement may be satisfied in accredited schools by study of prose and poetry of equivalent difficulty. (b) Translation of English narrative into Latin prose. The English passage offered for translation will be a paraphrase from one of Cicero's orations. This requirement calls for a systematic training in Latin prose composition, based on prose authors, during the last two years of the high school course.

8. Mediæval and Modern History. (Corresponding to (13) of the general requirements for admission to the College at Berkeley) Meyers's Mediæval and Modern History will indicate the period to be covered and the amount required.

The examinations are held at the times and places announced for holding the entrance examinations to the Academic Colleges of the University, at Berkeley. Applicants for admission will not be examined at any other time, unless for reasons of the most exceptional urgency. Further information concerning the examinations can be obtained from the Recorder of the Faculties of the University of California, Berkeley, California.

Applicants for admission to the Senior Class must be at least twenty years of age; must comply with the conditions required to enter the Junior Class; and must pass an examination in all the studies of the Junior and Middle years.
