RULES AND REGULATIONS 193 MISCELLANEOUS RULES AND REGULATIONS 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 Committee. 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, shall consist of no more and no less than four credits. Requirements for Graduation- The following summation of the requirements for graduation is presented to enable students to check their standing: (I) Completio of the required courses as indicated on pages 195 to 196; (2) A total of 133 credits and 133 grade-points; (3) No unsatisfied failures, conditions or incompletes; (4) An average of one grade-point per credit during the last two semesters of work; (5) A major oi 15 to 25 credits in a department or a split major of 25 or more credits of suitably re- lated work in two or more departments. Not more than 25 elective credits in one department may count toward graduation, nor may more than 5 credits of work in some related department count as a portion of a department's major requirements. (See Departments of Instruction), (6) A minimum of 24 elective (non-required) credits outside the College of Agrculture; and (7) A minimum of 50 credits, including required, optional, major and elective courses within the College of Agriculture.

Courses given by staff members of the Forest Products Laboratory, approved by the College of Agriculture, shall be considered as agri- cultural.
