Admission to the regular College course.

Applicants for admission must produce certificates of their good moral character. If they come from other colleges, certificates also of their regular dismission therefrom are required.

For admission to the Freshman Class, an examination must be well sustained in the following studies:--

Latin: Virgil's Bucolics, Georgics, and six books of the Aeneid; Caesar's Commentaries, or Sallust; Cicero's Select Orations (Folsom's or Johnson's edition); Andrews's and Stoddard's Latin Grammar, including Prosody; Arnold's Latin Prose Composition, to the Dative. Greek: Felton's or Jacob's Greek Reader (or four books of Homer's Iliad, with three books of Xenophon's Anabasis); Sophocles', Crosby's, or Kuhner's Greek Grammar, including Prosody; Arnold's Greek Prose Composition, to the Moods; Writing of Greek Accents. Mathematics: Arithmetic; Smyth's Algebra, to Equations of the Second Degree. History: Modern Geography; Worcester's Ancient Geography; Goodrich's History of the United States.

For admission to an advanced class, an examination must be well sustained, both in these studies and in the studies through which such class shall have already passed.

No person can be admitted after the beginning of the Senior Year.

Examinations for admission will be held on the day after the Commencement, and on the Tuesday preceding the beginning of the Fall Term. The examinations will begin at eight o'clock, A. M., on each of these days.

Before his admission, every candidate must give a bond of $200, with two sureties, to pay all his college bills. To be admitted to an advanced standing, he must also pay, or secure the payment of, one-half of the tuition which shall have accrued in the previous years and terms of the regular course, unless he comes from another college; provided that, if he be admitted at the beginning of the Senior Year, the tuition of the Junior Year shall be the only arrears required of him.

Partial Courses of Study.--Persons who do not enter for a college degree, and who produce certificates of their good moral character, may be received to such studies, in any class, as they shall, on examination, be found qualified to pursue with profit; and they may continue therein at their pleasure, on condition of obeying the laws of the college, and paying one-third more than the regular tuition for the time they remain.
