NOTE: A student who has taken his freshman and sophomore work at the University of Wiscon- sin, whose grade-point average for these first two years of work is 2.6 or higher, and who is recom- mended by three of his sophomore instructors, may be permitted by the major division or depart- ment of his choice to pursue Advanced Independent Work during the remainder of his course, which will enable him to secure a master's degree at the end of nine semesters.

At the beginning of his junior year the student, with the help of his adviser, should plan a program, well balanced as concerns elective and required subjects, especially in the major or split major, so that he may easily complete all of the requirements for the degree during the senior year.

However, it is advisable that the student select early the insti- tution to which he wishes to transfer so that he may modify, if necessary, a part of his work. during his sophomore year to meet the requirements of the specific insti- tution. Practically all institutions that offer degrees in forestry require that training in the summer forestry camp be completed before the beginning of the junior year.
