By means of the correspondence study service college courses
from the regular curriculum are made available to the student
away from the campus. The correspondence system, moreover, has
long since passed the experimental stage, and the practical values
of development of personal initiative, self-reliance, accuracy, and
perseverance have come to be widely recognized.
Types of Students: Correspondence courses are well adapted
to the needs of the following types of students:
(1) Graduates of accredited high schools, and former college
students who, though they are prevented by financial or other
reasons from attending college, desire to continue their education.
(2) Teachers and school administrators who desire to complete
courses leading toward teachers' certificates or to gain special training
in selected branches of instruction.
(3) Prospective students of professional schools, or prospective
applicants for professional degrees, who desire to secure prerequisite
academic credits prior to their admission to the professional
school or during their temporary withdrawal from school.
(4) Senior students whose deans recommend correspondence
study to provide a prescribed course not currently scheduled in
residence or to eliminate a conflict in schedule.
(5) Ambitious persons who desire, while pursuing a vocation,
to study for cultural improvement or vocational efficiency.
(6) High school students who desire to complete their high
Regulations: (1) Applicants who have met the requirements
for college entrance are admissible to correspondence study. They
may begin a course at any time.
(2) Credit in a course of three semester hours can be granted
in a minimum of forty-five days and a maximum of one year from
the date of registration. Failure of the student to report for ninety
days constitutes a lapse of his enrollment and necessitates his application
for reinstatement. If his application is granted, a fee of
$1.00 is assessed.
(3) A resident student in this or other institutions is allowed to
register by correspondence, or to continue correspondence work
already in progress, only with the approval of his dean. If a correspondence
student entering in residence is required to drop his
correspondence work, he will be given an extension equal to the
period of his resident enrollment.
(4) Not more than one-half of the hours required for a degree
may be earned by correspondence, and a maximum of twelve semester
hours is allowed in one academic session for students engaged
in full time employment.
In every course pursued for credit a final examination under
the supervision of an official examiner is a requirement. The student
should send his application, with a fee of $1.00, at the close
of the course.
