Candidates must present themselves at the College at three o'clock P. M., on Third-day, the 14th of Ninth month. To secure places, applications for admission for the next scholastic year should be made, as early as possible, by letter to the President. Candidates for advanced standing must first be examined for admis sion to the Freshman Class then in all the required studies already gone over by the class for which they Offer themselves, and in as many elective studies as they would have pursued if they had entered at the beginning of the course. Especial attention is called to the importance of a thorough prepa ration in the studies required for admission. The want of this is a serious source of embarrassment to future progress, and is rarely repaired by subsequent study. The work is arranged for those only who enter the classes thoroughly prepared. Students are t considered as regular members of the College until, after a residence of at least four months, they have been admitted to matriculation on satisfactory evidence of good moral character. Before this they are students on probation. The attention of parents and' guardians is called to the arrangement of the Courses of Study. In the Preparatory School and in the lower College classes most studies are required, while in the higher College classes many are elective. The pursuit of the regular course, Whether students are candidates for degrees or t, is especially recommended before reaching the Junior year. The studies of each class in any course are among the electives for students of that class in any other course, if they are prepared to pursue them, and pass the necessary preliminary examination.
