three meet on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday; and those whose
unit's digit is two, meet on Wednesday and Friday.
There will be some variations in the different courses; but as a
rule, three or more courses will be required in a subject before an
advanced course may be taken.
GRADES AND POINTS
The standing of the student is expressed in terms of grades and
points. The grades are made up of class work, papers, quizzes, and
examinations. The letters A-plus, A, A-minus, B-plus, B, B-minus,
C-plus, C, D, and E will be used.
For each course (60 recitation-hours) completed with a grade of
A-plus, thirteen points will be given; with a grade of A, ten points;
A-minus, eight points; B-plus, six points; B, five points; B-minus,
four points; C-plus, two points, and C, one point. Each student will
be required to make two hundred points while taking his thirty-six
The grade D is condition and the grade E is failure. Any course
taken in which a grade of E is made must be taken over. All incomplete
courses will be regarded as D until they are completed.
All continuous courses must be completed within a year of the time
they are begun.
SELECTING A COURSE OF STUDY
In selecting a course-of study, the student must first choose those
subjects in which he is in arrears. College work may not be assigned
until all preparatory work is completed or assigned. The
student should choose his courses next from the list of courses under
the head of "Requirements for Graduation." Those required courses
are designed to afford a basis of general culture which everyone
should have before specialization is begun, and it is, therefore, urged
that much of this work be done in the freshman and sophomore years.
The student will be required to choose one of the "groups" by
the beginning of the junior year.
If a student is deficient in English he will do well to place this
subject on his schedule for extra work. The Dean reserves the
right, upon the recommendation of any instructor, to prescribe additional
work in English to any student.
The regular student should plan to make three courses each
term. By special permission a student may take three and threefifths
courses. Under no consideration will any student be given
credit for more than three and three-fifths courses.
The Dean will act as an advisor to all freshman and sophomore
students, but after the choice of a "group" is made each student will
take the instructor in charge of his major as his advisor. No work
should be taken without consulting his advisor.
Only one degree will be conferred. The degree of Bachelor of
Arts will be conferred upon those who satisfy the following requirements.
