Requirements for Admission

Requirements for Admission.

Candidates for admission to the Freshman Class in the Classical Course are examined in the following studies:
  • English Grammar and Analysis.
  • Geography—Ancient and Modern.
  • History of the United States.

Arithmetic, Algebra through Quadratic Equations, and Books I to VI of Davies' Legendre, or an equivalent. Algebra through Quadratic Equations will not be reviewed in the course, and must be thoroughly learned from a University Treatise.

Boise's First Greek Book.

Hadley's Greek Grammar.

Xenophon's Anabasis—three books.

Greek Prose Composition. (Jones & Boise.) Part I.

Latin Grammar and Reader.

Four books of Cæsar's Commentaries; or Cornelius Nepos.

Six Orations of Cicero.

Six books of Virgil's Æneid.

Allen's Latin Composition, or Harkness' Introduction to Latin Composition, first and second parts; or forty-four exercises of Arnold's Latin Prose Composition.

Actual equivalents for the books or parts of books named above will be accepted; but exact conformity to these requirements is greatly preferred, and candidates for admission should prepare themselves accordingly.

Candidates for advanced standing, whether from other colleges or not, are examined in the studies previously pursued by the class which they propose to enter.

No person under fifteen years of age will be admitted to the Freshman Class, nor will any one be admitted to an advanced standing without a proportionate increase of age.

Testimonials of good moral character are required in all cases; and every student from another College must produce a certificate of regular dismission.

To prevent disappointment to the applicant it should be distinctly understood, that a thorough knowledge of the prescribed studies is more likely to insure admission, and to enable the student to reap the full benefits of the Collegiate Course, than a superficial acquaintance with some higher branches of literature and science. A critical knowledge of Arithmetic, Elementary Algebra and Geometry, and the Grammars of the English, Latin and Greek languages, is indispensable.
