best advantage. Persons who have not completed a common
school education, but who are by age and experience fitted
for the work may be admitted to the course. Experience
has shown that the young men at least 20 years of age who
have a general knowledge of farming are able to secure the
greatest benefit from the course.
  See page 25 for additional information on short unit
course admission.
  Persons who are graduates of high school or its equivalent
may enter the Winter Courses with the privilege of selecting
work from either the first, second, or third year schedules.
Credit toward a Winter Course certificate will be granted
for work completed in agriculture in high schools or colleges
if the work is of similar grade and quality. Thirty-six credits
are required for graduation but this may be reduced by
credit for work done in high school or College subject to ap-
proval of the credits by the Winter Course Committee. At
least 18 credits of Winter Course work must be completed
at Madison before a certificate is granted.
  Graduates of high schools who have had two or more
years of agriculture and others with equivalent training in
agriculture from county agent short courses and county
schools of agriculture, may complete the course in less than
two winters of 15 weeks each. The maximum credit granted
for this work will be 18 credits and the amount of credit will
depend upon the number of years of agriculture, the quality
of instruction, projects and equipment, of the institution
where the agriculture was taken.
  A record of work from the school for which credit is to
be requested together with subjects, semesters taken, stand-
ings and certificate of graduation or attendance signed by
the high school principal should be sent to T. L. Bewick,
Director of Winter Courses a month before you wish to en-
ter so there will be time to pass on records and plan schedule
before registration day. Do not delay in having records sent
to Madison.
