ADMISSION TO ADVANCED STANDING

Candidates may be admitted to advanced standing only upon a satisfactory
record from their school of previous residence. Provided they are eligible for the
pharmacy student qualifying certificate required by the New York State De-
partment of Education, candidates who have completed, without condition,
corresponding courses in a pharmacy school registered by the State Education
Department, are eligible for admission to the second, third, or fourth years,
respectively.

FEES

The fees to be paid by students are subject to change at any time in the dis-
cretion of the Trustees. The following schedule is in force for the 1 930-1 931
session or for students accepted in any of the regular courses leading to degrees.

METHODS OF PAYMENT

Regular Courses

One of three methods for the payment of the tuition fee for the year may be
elected by the candidate, as indicated below. In this connection, it is to be noted
that all are required to pay the registration fee, the breakage deposit, the student
activities fee and the first installment of the tuition fee at the time of registration.
The dates for registration in the various classes will be found in the academic
calendar on page 71.

A. Pay in full at the time of registration.

B. Pay one half of the tuition fee at the time of registration, and the balance
on or before January 5, 193 1. Under this arrangement, an additional $3 must be
added to the first installment.

C. Pay one third of the tuition fee at the time of registration; one third on or
before December i, 1930, and the balance on or before February 9, 1931. Under
this arrangement, an additional $5.00 must be added to the first installment.

A student, electing plan B or C makes himself liable to suspension from further
attendance if he fails to meet the payments when due.

Second-, third- and fourth-year students, who register after the last day set for
their registration (see Academic Calendar) are required to pay an additional fee
of §5.00 for late registration.

Examination Fees. Dates upon which fees for examination in course are re-
quired will be found in the Academic Calendar.

The rate for reexamination is on the basis of $5 for each subject in
September and $10 for the entire series in the spring.

Relates. The registration and student activities fees shall not be subject to
rebate.

In the case of the total withdrawal of a student from the College, a partial
return of the tuition fee may be authorized by the Trustees, but in no case shall
more than two thirds of the total charge for that year be returned.

Special, Summer, and Evening Courses. Students registering in any of these
courses are required to pay the tuition and other fees in advance.

METHOD OF INSTRUCTION

The instruction of each class during the first and second years of the College
Courses occupies three days of the week, the alternate days being free for prac-
tical experience in the pharmacy. This arrangement provides a source of income,
which is a necessity for many of the students of the College. During the third
year, an additional half-day must be devoted to work in the pharmacy labora-
tory. All students who can do so are urged to devote their third year wholly to
College work.

For the purpose of more fully elucidating the subjects presented in the lectures
and laboratories and of familiarizing the students therewith, and as a test of at-
tention and progress, provision is made for a complete series of recitations or
quizzes by a corps of qualified instructors. The order of topics and the manner of
their treatment at these recitations follow closely the courses of instruction



COLLEGE OF PHARMACY 23

given by the professors in the respective departments. In order that all the mem-
bers of the class may be drilled as often and as thoroughly as possible, the classes
are divided into sections, the instruction of each section being identical, but
conducted at different hours.

REGULATIONS OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES

The rules and regulations stated in this Announcement and those posted on
the bulletin boards, signed by the Chairman of an authorized committee, or by
the Dean, will govern all students of this College until a new Announcement is
issued.

AUTHORITY OF THE DEAN

The Dean is the executive officer of the Faculty. It is his duty, under the
direction of the President, to enforce the rules of the Faculty and of the Board
of Trustees and to administer discipline in the case of their violation.

dean's office HOURS

Ordinarily the Dean will be found in his office at the hours given below. As
he is frequently called out of the city, it is advisable to make important appoint-
ments by telephone.

During College Term
Tuesday at 2 p. m.
Wednesday, to Saturday (inclusive) at 10 a. m.

During Summer Vacation

Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday at 10 a. m.

requirements FOR ALL REGULAR STUDENTS

Attendance

Students are particularly requested to be in attendance at the commence-
ment of the course, in order to obtain full benefit from the lectures. No student
will be admitted more than two weeks after the opening of the term, and no
member of the third- and fourth-year classes will be admitted later than one week
after the opening, except by special permission of the Faculty.

Every student must attend during ninety per cent of the hours of instruction
in each year, and during eighty per cent of those of each exercise. The lectures and
recitations in a subject constitute one "exercise." For being late twice at daily
opening the student will be charged with one absence. For failure to comply with
this condition, the student will forfeit the privilege of presenting himself for examina-
tion.

Computation of attendance records will be based upon the total number of
hours assigned a given course (page 28) during the academic year.

Advancement in Classes
Advancement from one class to the next requires that the student successfully
pass an examination in all the subjects taught during the preceding year, the



24 COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY

passing mark being seventy-five per cent, although the Faculty may admit a
student to the next class conditioned in a single subject. It is to be particularly
noted that in deciding upon the qualifications of candidates, their term's work
and their character as students will be given due consideration.

Those students who fail to pass these examinations — but noi those who have
failed, without excuse, to present themselves thereat — will be allowed to undergo
a single supplementary examination to be held as announced on page 71, pro-
vided, however, that they did not fail in a majority of their subjects. Students
failing in a majority of their subjects will be required to repeat their entire course
of that year, provided, however, that such students may be refused readmission if,
in the judgment of the Faculty, they are not qualified to be students of this
college. A student who fails in a laboratory course must repeat such course
successfully before being advanced to the higher class. This work must be done
during the summer, except in special cases.

By a regulation of the State Education Department, students failing in more
than one subject must make good the deficiency at the school where they so
failed. Applicants for the supplementary examination must notify the Registrar
on or before September i, 1930.

Candidates for admission to advanced standing must either pass examinations
in all the subjects of the preceding year or must produce evidence of having
passed successfully examinations equal thereto.

REQUIREMENTS FOR GRADUATION

Every person upon whom a degree is conferred by the College or the Univer-
sity must be of good moral character, and must have complied with all require-
ments for graduation.

Those who fail to appear for examination (after having handed in their names
with the examination fee), or who do not pass satisfactorily, will be allowed to
present themselves at the following spring examinations on paying an additional
fee of $10 and complying with all other requirements.

Any student who shall have failed three times in three or more subjects at the
final examinations for graduation, shall be required to repeat the entire work
of the final year before being again admitted to examination. Should the student
again fail at the final examination and at the following supplementary examina-
tion, he will not be permitted to continue as a student, or to be examined again.
Any student failing three times in one or two subjects, shall be required to re-
peat the entire work of the final year in such subject or subjects before being
again admitted to examination.

All students must obtain a rating of seventy-five per cent or higher in every
department in which they may be examined. Any student failing in one or
more departments, but not in laboratory courses, may present himself for re-
examination therein at the supplementary examination held in September,
or at the next regular spring examination. If successful, he will be graduated
without reexamination in the other departments. Failure in a laboratory
course will necessitate the repeating of that course, which repetition must occur
during the summer vacation, except in special cases. See schedule on page 46.



COLLEGE OF PHARMACY 25

Students of the third-year University Class failing in a laboratory course of
a single department may be permitted to remove this failure during the Summer
Laboratory Session. Students of this class failing in the laboratory courses of
more than one department will be required to repeat in full those courses in which
they fail, during the next regular session.

PRIZES AND SCHOLARSHIPS

The College reserves the right to withhold the award of any scholarship or prize,
if in its opinion, no candidate has exhibited qualifications justifying the award.

Honor Roll. The College Classes and the University Classes will have
separate and distinct honor rolls.

For the College Classes, the roll is limited to thirteen candidates, provided all
have secured a general average of 85 per cent or over, and the mean of the ratings
secured in the three departments of Pharmacy, Materia Medica, and Chemistry
will be the basis of computation for the general average.

For the University Classes, the roll is limited to three candidates, provided all
have secured a general average of 85 per cent or over, and the mean of the ratings
secured in the four departments of Pharmacy, Materia Medica, Chemistry, and
the Cultural Courses will be the basis of computation for the general average.

Trustees' Prizes. The Board of Trustees offers annually, to be presented at
Commencement, three prizes of $100 each, for the highest rating secured in
competitive examination in the three departments of Chemistry, Pharmacy, and
Materia Medica. These competitive examinations are open to those members of
the graduating class who have attained positions on the honor roll of the College
Course. (If the number of these honor students be less than thirteen, a sufficient
number of graduates having the next highest averages to make that number will
be permitted to compete for these prizes.) A certificate, stating the honor for
which the prize has been awarded, is also presented to each of the recipients,

Alumni Association Prizes. The Alumni Fund of the College of Phar-
macy provides annually for a gold, a silver, and a bronze medal to be presented
at Commencement to the three students having respectively attained the first,
second, and third highest standings in all branches taught during the third year
of the College Course.

This fund also provides for five additional prizes awarded annually on Alumni
Day to members of the first- and second-year classes of the College Course, as
follows: Torsion Balance, awarded to that second-year student who has secured
the highest standing during the work of the two years; a copy of The United
States Dispensatory to that student who has secured the highest standing during
the work of the second year; a copy of Rusby, Bliss, and Ballard, Properties of
Drugs awarded to that student securing the second highest standing in the work of
