Directions for New Students.
|1.||Reach Columbia, if possible, as early as the Friday preceding the opening of the session.|
|2.||If assistance is desired in obtaining board, report to the Proctor or to any member of the Faculty, at the University buildings.|
|3.||Before entering the University, $15.00 must be paid to Mr. R. B. Price, Treasurer, at the Boone County National Bank, and his receipt obtained. The law student pays $40.00; the medical student $40, and $10.00 for Demonstrator's ticket.|
|4.||The Treasurer's receipt should be at once presented to the Proctor at the University, when the name of the student will be entered upon the University roll. In cases of continued delinquency to enroll, and of loitering about the town, the person so delinquent will not be received as a member of the University. No one can be enrolled until the receipt of the Treasurer, as above specified, be presented. No student can enter a class with any Professor, until he shall have been matriculated or regularly enrolled by the Proctor.|
|5.||The professional student must present the card received from the Proctor, to the Secretary of the Faculty, who will enroll his name and issue to him his matriculation ticket, with the instructions necessary for enabling him to have his name entered on class rolls.|
|6.||The Academic student must present the Proctor's card to the Secretary of the Faculty, who must issue a matriculation ticket, admitting new students to their examinations, and former students to the advanced classes, for which, according to the Faculty record book, they have been examined. Students cannot enter classes without having borne an examination therefor.|
|7.||Young people coming to Columbia, intending to enter the University, are cautioned against delaying their entrance without good reason, as such delay not only injures the work of the entire session, but leads to unfavorable inferences concerning the character and intentions of the student.|
|8.||Report to the Professor of English before having their cards signed by any Professor, and obtain a certificate of competent knowledge of English.|
When an applicant for admission into the University has been connected with any other institution, he or she must present satisfactory evidence to the Faculty of an honorable standing in the institution from which he or she comes. The applicant must be of good character and qualified to enter organized classes.
Classes are retained in their class rooms by the Professors until the tap of the bell; five minutes are allowed for transitions of classes after the tap of the bell. This rule applies also to the Library as a study room.
