A fee of one dollar will be charged for any examination taken
at a time other than when scheduled.
A library fee of $2.00 per term is charged. Books may be
kept out for seven days, except those on reserve shelves, which
may be kept out one hour only. A fine of five cents per day will
be charged for regular books kept over time, and of ten cents
per hour for reserve shelf books not returned on time. All fines
must be paid as they are assessed. Books will not be issued to
students or teachers who have fines that are unpaid. This is a
protection to the student himself as well as to the library. Encyclopedias
or other reference books may not be taken from the
reading rooms. Not more than five "week" books or one "reserve"
book may be charged out to anyone at the same time.

The Bursar will deduct these fines from the salary.
The library will be open from 7:50 a. m. to 12:30 p. m., and
from 1:30 p. m. to 3:40 p. m., except on Sundays and Mondays.

and reputation of the students given this advantage must be kept
above reproach. The management must feel that the student has
the possibilities of making good in the work contemplated.
All students receiving free tuition on this score are required
to take one special course each term in addition to the Bible class
