Vegetable Physiology.

Each pupil will be classed according to her attainments, and will be expected to pursue the prescribed studies of her class, except when excused by the Principal, who will be guided in this by the health and ability of the pupil. Young ladies, however, who may desire to prosecute special studies in the higher Academic or Advanced Classes, without taking the full course, can do so without interfering with the classification, by attending the recitations page 167 in those branches which they may elect. In such cases they will be excused from the other duties of the institution, but the full tuition fee will be charged.

At a meeting of the Board of Directors of the University, held in November, 1874, the following resolution was adopted:—

"That the graduates of Mary Institute in full standing shall be entitled to free admission to the classes of the College or the Polytechnic School either as regular or particular students, on examination, and subject to the rules and regulations of said departments; it being distinctly understood that a diploma shall not be given to any such student except on completion of the full course of study."
