RULES AND REGULATIONS 199 MISCELLANEOUS RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR ALL STUDENTS Although the rules are, in general, the same for all students in agriculture, there are a few exceptions. Students who entered college before September 1, 1939, are governed by rules slightly different from those prevailing where students entered after September 1, 1939. In the rules given under the following three sub-headings, namely: Requirements for Grad- uation, Minimum and Maximum Study Loads, ard Promotions, the statements are applicable to all students. Figures shown in parentheses ( ) are the only exceptions and they apply to students who entered college before September 1, 1939, only.

Not more than 25 elective credits in one department may count toward graduation. 6-A minimum of 20 (24)- elective, or non-required, credits outside the College of Agriculture. 7-A minimum of 45 (50)^ credits including required, optional, major and elective courses within the College of Agriculture; and 8-After March 1, 1943, a minimum grade-point average of 1.5 in all courses taken in agriculture. Minimum and Maximum Study Loads-Each student is required to take class and laboratory work totaling from 12 (12)' to 17 (18)^ credits per semester, including freshman lectures and the military science or physical activity requirement as required of all freshmen. (See preceding page.) A student desiring to take less than 12 (12)" or more than 17 (18)1 credits must get permission in advance from the Executive Committee of the College. Promotions-A student becomes a sophomore on the completion of 25 (26)" credits and 25 (26)* grade-points; a junior on the completion of 58 (60)* credits and 58 (60)" grade- points; and a senior on the completion of 88 (95)* credits and 88 (95)" grade-points.

(2) Undergraduates below the rank of senior, excepting juniors who are eligible for advanced independent 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. 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, when the student is a senior his adviser must be a member of the department in which the student is majoring. Quality of Work-To remain in good scholastic standing, a student is expected to maintain a minimum average of C (1.0) in all of the subjects which he is taking. After March 1, 1943, students, to be recommended for graduation, must have a minimum grade-point average of 1.5 in all courses taken in agriculture. Failures-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 offered during the student'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 Committee. Change of Schedule-Any change in the student's schedule. however small or seemingly insignificant, must be requested by the student's going to his adviser, indicating his request. and 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. Anv course dropped without the permission of the Executive Committee will be recorded as a "fail", and must be removed in the same manner as any other failure, as specified above. Thesis-The undergraduate thesis when required as part of the major requirement, shall consist of no more and no less than four credits. Agricultural and Non-Agricultural Courses-Courscs taken outside the College as a part of the major are not considered as a portion of the 45 (50)' credits required in the College of Agriculture. Courses taught in departments outside the College of Agriculture, though listed in departments of the College of Agriculture, are not to be considered as part of the 45 (50)" required credits. Courses given by staff members of the Forest Products Laboratory. approved by the College of Agriculture, shall be considered as agricultural. Credits in Education 75 may be counted toward graduation only by those students who complete the requirements for the university teachers' certificate. * Figures in parentheses ( ) apply to students in agriculture who entered College before September 1, 1939.
