students without the permission of the Committee on Elections. The
committee may be consulted between 9 a. m. and 5 p. m. daily, from

ber of hours a week that may be elected without special permission
is sixteen, the minimum, twelve. The time necessary to earn the

On special request students of superior scholarship may be
granted additional hours, but in all cases such requests must be made
each semester in writing on a blank form provided by the Registrar,
and must be filed with the regular election blank, on which the elec-

grade of D, or earned less than one and one-half times as many
points as hours.

and the reasons therefor, and must be filed with the regular election
blank, on which the election should be made as if the request had
been granted.

Thursday or Friday of the second week preceding the final examina-
tion of the first semester of each year, an election blank, showing the
studies he expects to pursue during the second semester. Election
blanks presented after this date will be accepted only upon payment
of $1.00. This fee may, in exceptional cases, be remitted upon appli-
cation to the Dean.

E. Necessary changes in elections may be made during the first
week of the semester, by filing with the Registrar a revised election
blank on Thursday or Friday of that week. In the case of first-year
students and of all special students such changes can be made only
after consultation with the Committee on Elections.

F. After the first week changes may be made only by permis-
sion of the Administrative Board and upon the payment of a fee of

with the rules printed thereon. Membership in the class does not
cease until permission to drop the course has been granted by the
Administrative Board (as represented by the Dean or the Registrar)
and notice sent to the instructor. Authority to grant permission to
drop, take up, or change courses has not been delegated to the
instructors.

Consultation Houfs. — ^Throughout the period of registration,
September 20 to 26, 193 1, representatives of all the different depart-
ments will keep consultation hours to advise upper-class students, both

MEETING FOR FIRST YEAR WOMEN

All freshmen women are required to report at Barbour Gymna-
sium Wednesday, October 28, at 4 p. m., to receive general instruction
from the Dean of Women and the Physical Director.

ADVISORY SYSTEM

General information may be obtained from the Committee of
Faculty Advisers, who may be found in the Auditorium of Univer-
sity Hall throughout registration week and later at times and places
to be announced. Students are urged to make this relation real and
vital, and to consult their advisers freely whenever occasion arises.
Information concerning rules and their interpretation should be
obtained from the Dean and Registrar, who are also glad to advise
with students on other matters.

RULES RELATING TO EXAMINATIONS AND MARKS

1. A final examination is given in every course in accordance
with the schedule issued each semester. No examination may be held
except as announced in this schedule, and no date of examination
may be changed without special vote of the Faculty.

2. Students are required to take the examination in all courses
except such as they may have dropped with consent of the Adminis-
trative Board.

3. Students are in no case examined at any other time than
that set for the examination of the class in which the work has been
done. In case of unavoidable conflicts a special examination during
examination week may be arranged by the instructor with the con-
sent of the Conmiittee on Schedule.

4. The final semester reports are made in accordance with the
following system of marking: A, excellent; B, good; C, fair; D,
deficient, passed without points; E. not passed; I, incomplete; X,
absent from examination. These reports are not given out to the
students by the instructors, but are regularly issued from the office
of the Registrar.

Each hour of credit is valued in points as follows: A, three
points; B, two points; C, one point; D, no points; E, no hours credit
and no points. All advanced credit is regarded as of grade C.

This system of grades and points took effect in June, 19 12. Each
hour credit earned prior to that date is reckoned as of grade C.

5. The grade of D is an unsatisfactory mark. While it gives
hours credit, it gives no points, which are equally required for grad-
uation. It is considered as a deficiency. Like the other grades, it
is final, and cannot be raised by subsequent work or examination.

6. If a student is reported E in any course, he can receive no
credit for that course unless it has been again elected and pursued
as though it had not been elected before.

7. A student may be reported Incomplete, if some small portion
of his work remains unfinished, providing his standing in the course
has been of grade C or higher. To secure credit, this work
must be completed within one motith after the beginning of the fol-
lowing semester ; otherwise the course will be recorded as of grade £*

Any student who desires to remove an incomplete must first
obtain from the Registrar a blank form for presentation to the
instructor in charge of the course. This blank, when signed, must be
filed, with the Registrar within one week from the time of the exam-
ination. A fee of $1.00 is charged for blanks obtained after the
specified time.

8. A student reported Absent from Examination may, on pre-
senting a satisfactory excuse, receive permission from the Adminis-
trative Board to take the examination within one month after the
beginning of the following semester. In case such a supplementary
examination be not taken and passed, the course will be recorded as
of grade £.

Any student who desires to take an examination from which he
was absent at the regular time and with satisfactory excuse must make
application to the Rrgistrar upon a special blank during the first two
weeks of the following semester. The examination will then be held,
under supervision of the Registrar, during the fourth week of the
semester.

9. Students of other schools and colleges who absent themselves
from the courses elected in this College forfeit the privilege of elect-
ing courses in this College.

within two weeks after the close of the semester in which the work
was taken, a fine of $1.00 is imposed before credit is given. All
regular laboratory deposits are payable in advance.

This report of grade withheld is treated as an incomplete. In
order to secure credit for the course, the student must, within one
month after the beginning of the following semester, procure from
the Registrar a blank, to be returned to him as soon as signed by
the instructor. After two weeks from the close of the semester, this
blank will be issued only upon presentation of the receipt of the
Treasurer of the University for the $1.00 fine.

RULE RELATING TO DEFICIENCIES IN ENGLISH

Any instructor who finds the written work of a student seriously
defective in its English is expected to report the case, together with
specimen papers, to a committee consisting of the Dean and the Pro-
fessor of Rhetoric, who shall have power to require additional work
in composition without credit.

RULES RELATING TO DELINQUENTS

1. Warning. — A student whose work is unsatisfactory is warned.
In all such cases notice of the character of the work is sent to the
student and to his parents or guardian.

2. Probation. — A student whose work is extremely unsatisfac-
tory is put on probation. This means that he is in imminent danger
of dismissal from the University. During the period of probation
the student is on trial to prove his fitness to do work in the Uni-
versity. He is required to devote all his time to his studies.

3. All students placed on probation are required to report to
the Bureau of Mental Tests and Measurements for an examination,
the results of which are placed on file in the office of the Dean for
such use as the administrative authorities concerned may deem wise.

4. Any student renders himself liable to suspension for a breach
of discipline who, while upon probation, engages in any public exhi-
bition, contest, game, or other public University activity.

TWO TEAR PROGRAM

PRELIMINARY TO THE STUDY OF LAW

the Arts is suggested by the Faculty of the Law School for students
looking to the study of law who are unable to devote more than two
years to collegiate preparation :

may be made in the case of students whose preliminary work has not
included the necessary preparation, though students of law are
strongly urged to include Latin in the curriculum.
