  Course Restrictions. (1) Freshmen and sophomores are not permitted to enroll
in courses
numbered 100 or above; undergraduates may not take courses numbered 200 or
above. (2)
Undergraduates below the rank of senior, excepting juniors who are eligible
for advanced
work, are not permitted to carry topical work. (3) Undergraduates may not
receive credit
for more than two semesters of seminar in a single department.
  Promotions- A student in agriculture becomes a sophomore upon the completion
of 26 credits
and 26 grade-points; a junior upon the completion of 60 credits and 60 grade-points;
and a
senior upon the completion of 95 credits and 95 grade-points.
  Advisers-After completing the freshman year, a student in agriculture may
select any
member of the agricultural teaching staff to be his adviser. The student
reserves the right
to change his adviser at any time after the completion of the semester and
before beginning
the next one. However, in his senior year the student's adviser must be a
member of the
department in which the student is majoring..
  Audlity of Work-To remain in good scholastic standing, a student is expected
to main-
tain a minimum average of C (1.0) in all of the subjects which he is taking.
  Pailures- Unless he is excused from doing so by the Executive Committee,
any student
who receives a grade of "fail," indicated by "F," must
remove the failure by repeating the
subject and securing a passing grade as soon as the subject is again offered
during the
period such student is in residence at the University. A course that has
been failed shall
take precedence over other courses in being fitted into the student's study
schedule when it
is next offered. A failure cannot be removed by correspondence study or by
repeating the
subject at another collegiate institution.
  Conditions-A student who receives a grade of "condition," indicated
by "E," may convert
it to a passing grade by passing a special examination during the next semester
he is in
residence at the University. Otherwise the grade will lapse into a failure
which must be
removed as specified above.
  Incompletes-A student who receives an "incomplete," shown as
"Inc. " must complete the
subject not later than the close of the semester in which it is again okfered
during the stu-
dent's residence at the University. If not so completed, the grade for the
subject will lapse
into a failure unless the time for completion has been extended by the Executive
  Change of Schedule-Any change in the student's schedule, however small
or seemingly in-
significant, may be made only by the student going to his adviser, securing
his adviser's
approval on the proper forms, and taking the forms to the assistant dean's
office where the
Executive Committee will either approve or reject the request. Any course
dropped without
the permission of the Excecutive Committee will be recorded as a failure,
and must be
removed in the same manner as any other failure.
  Thesis-The undergraduate thesis, when required as part of the major requirement,
consist of no more and no less than four credits.

for graduation

the College of
Agriculture, though listed in departments of the College of Agriculture,
