General Information 



HISTORY 

Southern Missionary College, a Seventh-day Adventist institution, 
was founded in 1893 as Southern Training School, at Graysville, Tennes- 
see. Twenty-three years later the school was moved to Collegedale, Ten- 
nessee; and there, in 1916, it was reopened as Southern Junior College. 
The exigencies of a rapidly expanding student body necessitated the ex- 
tension, in the spring of 1944, to senior college status, and the first 
fcur-year seniors were graduated from Southern Missionary College in 
1946. 

Southern Missionary College is incorporated under the laws of the 
State of Tennessee, the Board of Trustees assuming entire responsibility 
for the financial support and management of the institution. 

OBJECTIVES 

Basic Denominational Tenets. Seventh-day Adventists believe in an 
infinite Creator as the source of all life and wisdom; they regard man 
as created in God's image and endowed with mental, moral, and physical 
powers capable of growth and development; they accept the moral law as 
binding upon all men and believe in personal redemption from sin through 
Jesus Christ; they accept the Bible as God's Word, the inspired revelation 
of His will to men; they believe that through proper education young 
people may be led to practice habits of correct thinking, to develop 
Christian character, and to make diligent preparation for a purposeful life 
of efficient service to their fellow men. ■■■ . 

Specific Objectives. Southern Missionary College is a four-year co- 
educational college of arts and sciences operated by the Seventh-day Ad- 
ventist denomination; its general objectives are those of this governing 
organization. In full harmony with these general objectives, the authori- 
ties of the college have further defined its specific institutional objectives 
as follows: 

1 . Spiritual— To establish an unswerving personal allegiance to the 
principles of the Christian faith; to develop a distinctly Christian 
philosophy of life as a basis for the solution of all personal and 
social problems; and to acquire a sense of personal responsibility 
to participate in the mission program of the church. 

2. Intellectual — To gain an acquaintance with the basic facts and 
principles of the major fields of knowledge necessary to indepen- 
dent and creative thinking; to acquire an attitude of open-minded 
consideration of controversial questions; to achieve a continuing 
intellectual curiosity; and to acquire the art of effective expression 
(in spoken and written English and in the graphic arts). 

3. Ethical — To acquire those ethical and moral concepts which are 
approved by the enlightened conscience of mankind; to achieve 
an attitude of tolerance toward the rights and opinions of others; 



General Information 17 

and to accept the social obligation of serving humanity and labor- 
ing diligently for its welfare. 

4. Social — To develop an acquaintance with the approved social 
practices of cultured men and women; and to participate heartily 
and comfortably in those recreational activities which contribute 
to the further development of a well-balanced personality. 

5. Aesthetic — To gain an acquaintance with the masterpieces of 
literature and the fine arts and an appreciation of the standards 
and the types of beauty represented by them; and to learn both to 
create and to choose that which is beautiful as well as that which 
is useful. 

6. Civic — To acquire an intelligent understanding of the principles 
of government and to develop a willingness to accept the re- 
sponsibilities and privileges of citizenship; to recognize the con- 
stitutional rights of other individuals and social groups; to know 
the principal domestic and international issues of our time; to 
develop a sincere love for our country and its fundamental 
principles; and to learn to co-operate effectively in the continuing 
improvement of society. 

7. Health — To gain an intelligent understanding of the principles 
which govern the functioning and proper care of the human body; 
to establish habits and practices which foster maximum physical 
vitality and health; to develop a genuine interest in the intelligent, 
many-sided, recreational uses of leisure time and, in co-operation 
with others, in the improvement of the physical well-being of all. 

8. Vocational — To acquire a genuine appreciation of the true dignity 
of useful labor; and to master the knowledge and achieve the 
understanding necessary to the intelligent choice of a vocation that 
is in harmony with individual abilities and aptitudes. Preparation 
is provided at Southern Missionary College for the gospel 
ministry, for teaching in elementary and secondary schools, for 
pre-nursing and pre-medical training; for secretarial and business 
positions, and for other vocations. 

LOCATION 

Southern Missionary College is located on a one-thousand-acre estate 
in a valley eighteen miles east of Chattanooga. The Southern Railway 
passes through the institutional estate. 

The campus lies three miles from Ooltewah, junction point of the 
Atlanta and Knoxville divisions of the Southern Railway. Ooltewah is 
also on the Lee Highway No. 11, which connects Washington, D. C, and 
other cities in the East with Chattanooga and other southern points. 

Frequent bus service throughout the day to Chattanooga provides 
students with ample transportation facilities. The Chattanooga airport 
is located only a few miles from the college.

ACCREDITATION 

The junior college years at Southern Missionary College are fully 
accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary 
Schools, by the Tennessee State Department of Education, and by the 
Seventh-day Adventist Board of Regents. The college is a member of 
the American Association of Junior Colleges, the Southern Association 
of Private Schools, the Tennessee College Association, and the Mid-South 
Association of Private Schools. 

SUMMER SESSION 

The college conducts a nine-week summer session. The normal scho- 
lastic load for the summer term is six to eight hours; nine hours is the 
maximum load. 

The Summer Session Announcement of Southern Missionary College, 
containing detailed statements of the several courses and information of 
general interest to students, will be sent on application to the Director of 
the Summer Session. 

SPECIAL INFORMATION FOR VETERANS OF WORLD WAR II 

If you are a holder of an honorable discharge from the military 
service of the United States, you are eligible for educational benefits. 
Southern Missionary College is fully recognized as a training center for 
veterans. In general the rules for admission and continued registration 
of veterans are the same as for other students, except that veterans who 
have not finished high school may qualify for admission to certain cur- 
riculums by passing successfully the General Educational Development 
tests at the high school level. 

Most veterans receive educational benefits under the Public Law 
346, commonly known as the G. I. Bill of Rights. A veteran holding a 
medical discharge has the option of receiving benefits under Public 
Law 346 or Public Law 16; others are eligible only under Public Law 346. 

PROCEDURE FOR OBTAINING BENEFITS 

1. The Veteran hould contact his local veterans service center, or 
the state office of the Veterans Administration, and obtain a copy of 
Veterans Administration Form 1950. 

2. Form 1950 should be filled out together with the following 
documentary evidence, with the proper state office several weeks, if 
possible, before entrance to the college: a certified copy of discharge 
papers; if married, a certified copy of the public record of marriage; 
and a certified copy of the birth certificate of one child, (if any). A 
certified copy of the marriage record can be obtained from the office of 
the county clerk of the county concerned. For information as to the 
birth certificate, one can write to the registrar of vital statistics, in the 
department of public health, at the state capital. 



General Information 19 

3. If eligible, the veteran will then receive from the Veterans Ad-- 
ministration Form 1953, Certificate of Eligibility and Entitlement, which 
document should be carefully preserved. No veteran will be enrolled 
in the college without this document unless he has been so recently dis- 
charged from the service as to make it impractical for him to obtain it 
before coming to college. 

4. Veterans holding an Original or Supplemental Certificate of 
Eligibility issued prior to September 1, 1948, should contact the local 
office of the Veterans Administration and request them to re-issue it. 

5. A student attending another school under the G. I. Bill of Rights, 
and who wishes to transfer to Southern Missionary College, must 
counsel with the Veterans Administration officials in the office located 
near the school in which he is in training for permission to make the 
transfer (and if changing course, for permission to change his course 
also) and must obtain from them a supplemental certificate of eligibility. 
This certificate must be presented to Southern Missionary College at 
the time of entrance. Such students should have made prior application 
to this college for admission. 

6. Veterans holding medical discharges and eligible under Public 
Law 16 should make arrangements for a personal interview with the 
Veterans Administration representative at his local office, where he 
will receive an authorization to enter training at Southern Missionary 
College. Whether students are desiring to enter training for the first time 
or to transfer to Southern Missionary College, the Veterans Administration 
must grant permission and provide the school with a letter of authorization 
before the veterans' enrollment under Public Law 16. 

7. All veterans are urged to take prompt advantage of the educa- 
tional benefits of the G. I. Bill of Rights. The deadline for entering 
training is July 27, 1951. After that date only veterans then in training 
will continue to receive educational aid. 

What the G. I. Bill of Rights Provides 

1. The Veterans Administration will pay direct to the school the 
charges for tuition, fees, required books and supplies. 

The minimum number of college hours for which the veteran may 
draw full subsistence is twelve for a semester; under Public Law 16 a 
veteran must take a full course load unless he has special authorization 
for a reduced program. 

Fees include the following: registration, laboratory, music and 
others. Fees do not include the advance deposits, as explained later, 
which must be made by the veteran at his own expense. 

Books and supplies are paid for only if they are required of 
nonveterans taking the same courses. 



20 Southern Missionary College 

2. Following are the usual monthly subsistence allotments and 
the maximum amounts of outside earnings allowed the three categories 
of veterans: 

Max. Other 
Allotments Earnings 

Single $ 75.00 $135.00 

Married (no children) 105.00 165.00 

Married (with children) 120.00 170.00 

From his allotment a veteran is expected to keep up to date his 
obligations to the college for board, room, laundry, and such other items 
as are not paid to the college direct from the Veterans Administration. 

3. Veterans attending school under Public Law 16 are expected to 
attend all regular school sessions the year around, including the summer 
session, until their course is completed. As a rule, veterans under Public 
Law 16 do not have the freedom of choice or the freedom of interrupting 
school work for vacation periods as other veterans do. Public Law 16 in 
many cases is more generous with the veterans than is Public Law 346. 
Students eligible under Public Law 16 should determine beforehand 
which law is of the greatest personal advantage to them. 

The Advance Deposit 

This is not a fee, and therefore, is not paid by the Veterans Adminis- 
tration. It is expected of all students who enter the school and is payable 
upon registration. Veterans should not expect the school to wait for this 
deposit until the living allotment starts, which will likely be the first week 
in November for those who enter in the fall term of 1950, and probably 
the first of July or the first of August for those who enter the summer 
term. 

As has already been explained, the living allotment is adequate to 
keep up current expenses under careful management. The advance deposit 
is ,not a current expense and must be provided prior to the opening of the 
school term along with other necessities for entering college. 

Like the advance deposit of all other students this one is "figured back" 
to the veteran's personal account at the close of the school term. 

Credit for In-Service Training 

Veterans who are contemplating a period of training under the pro- 
visions of the G.I. Bill of Rights should have sent to the college for 
consideration with their application for admission, their application for 
credit for educational achievement during military service. 

Veterans of World War II no longer on active duty may apply for 
high school or college credit by writing directly to the Registrar of the 
college, and by inclosing with their letter a certified copy of W.D., A.G. 
O. Form 100, Separation Qualification Record; or Notice of Separation 



General Information 21 

from the Naval Service, NavPers 553; or U.S.M.C. Report of Separation; 
or Notice of Separation from the U. S. Naval Service—Coast Guard, 553. 
In the case of Naval commissioned or warrant officers, the Officer's Quali- 
fication Record Jacket (NavPers 305), a certified copy thereof, or a state- 
ment from the Bureau of Naval Personnel covering the data desired 
should be submitted to the college. 

The Army Form (AG.O. Form 100, Separation Qualification Re- 
cord) indicated in the above paragraph has been in use only since the 
establishment of Army Separation Centers. Persons discharged before 
these centers were in operation will not have available A. G. O. Form 100 
and few of them will have made arrangements to file a USAFI Form 47, 
Application for Credit for Educational Achievement During Military 
Service. 

Army veterans separated from the service prior to the institution of 
the Army Separation Qualification Record (W. D., A. G. O. Form 100) 
may secure an official statement from the Army of their service training 
and education, excluding courses administered by the United States 
Armed Forces Institute, by directing a request to the Adjutant General, 
Washington 25, D. C. Each request should contain the following informa- 
tion: 

1. Full name (given name, middle initial, and surname). 

2. Army Serial Number (enlisted, officer, or both where applicable) 

3. Statement of desired information. 

4. Names and locations of service schools attended, date entered, 
name of each course, and any additional data which would be helpful 
in the preparation of the desired statement. 

GOVERNING STANDARDS 

In the light of the objectives of the college the religious phase of 
the student's education is of paramount importance. Students applying for 
entrance to the college thereby pledge themselves to maintain the Christian 
standards of the institution, to attend all regularly scheduled religious 
services, and to give due respect to things spiritual. 

Any student who does not maintain a satisfactory scholarship or in- 
dustrial record, or who, in the judgment of the administrative council, is 
unresponsive or non-cooperative in his relation to the objectives of the 
college, may be dismissed without specific charges. 

Moral Conduct. Students must abstain from indecent or disorderly 
behavior, from profane or unbecoming language, from the use of tobacco 
and alcohol, from reading pernicious literature, from playing cards, from 
visiting pool rooms or gambling places, from attending the opera, the 
motion picture theater, dances, or any other entertainment not approved 
by the college. 



22 Southern Missionary College 

Automobiles. The college has adopted and enforces the rule that 
unmarried residence-hall students may not bring to the campus or operate 
a motor vehicle. Residence hall students who come to the college with 
automobiles or motorcycles will be required to take them home or sell 
them before they register. 

Leave of Absence. Permission for ordinary leave of absence from 
the campus is to be obtained from the dean of men or the dean of women. 
The student's handbook should be consulted for information regarding 
week-end and other special leaves. 

Marriages. A student marrying during the school year is requested 
to withdraw. A clandestine marriage may disqualify an applicant for 
acceptance as a student, or may be cause for his dismissal if learned of 
after he has enrolled. 

Announced Regulations. Any regulation adopted by the faculty 
and announced to the students will have the same force as those printed 
in the catalogue or in the handbook, S.M.C. and You. 

EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES AND SERVICES 

The extra-class activities program of the college provides well 
organized opportunities for development of student initiative and leader- 
ship. In the Student Association, through his elected representative, 
each student has a voice in the formulation of policies and in the ad- 
ministration of college life and activities. Through participation in 
the various student organizations and church activities the student may 
acquire valuable experience in the art of group living and in working 
for and with his fellows. The college program of extra-class activities 
is under the supervision of the Coordinator of Student Activities. 
Student clubs are chartered by the Student Association. The plans and 
policies governing the Student Association and the other student organi- 
zations, as well as the program of extra-class activities generally, are 
outlined in the handbook, Our Student Organizations at Work. 

Testing and Counseling Service. This service provides general 
assistance to all students and also certain professional services for those 
with special needs. General assistance for all students is provided for 
by eight personal counselors who devote some hours each week to in- 
dividual conferences with students. The various officers, division chair- 
men and curriculum advisers also cooperate in this general advisory 
program. All students participate in the general testing program, which 
includes measures of scholastic aptitude, reading proficiency, social ad- 
justment, vocational proficiency and others as the need may require. 

Highly personalized counseling and testing services are provided for 
students with special needs. The chairman of the Division of Education 



General Information 23 

and the college physician- unite in providing this specialized clinical service 
for those who desire special counsel concerning such matters as the choice 
of a vocation, emotional and social maladjustments, and marital problems. 

Residence. All unmarried students who do not live with their par- 
ents, near relatives, or legal guardians, are expected to live in the residence 
halls on the campus. Exceptions may be made occasionally for reasons 
approved by the Administrative Council. 

Information as to room furnishings to be supplied by the student is 
given in the student's handbook, which is mailed to each person who 
applies for admission, and it is also available upon request. 

Health Service. The health service is under the supervision of a resi- 
dent registered nurse. It includes physical check-ups and examinations, 
clinical and infirmary service, isolation and protection in the case of 
infectious or contagious diseases, health education, and supervision of 
sanitation. 

Convocation, the Lyceum, Athletics. At various times during 
the school year distinguished speakers address the students at the chapel 
hour. A lyceum course of lectures, travelogues, and musical numbers is 
sponsored by the college. Students of Southern Missionary College do 
not participate in intercollegiate athletics, but a program of recreational 
activities is maintained. 

Financial Aid. In the operation of the college, a large volume of 
employment is offered to students. Under the guidance of skilled super- 
visors, this work affords valuable training, and brings a college education 
within the reach of many who would otherwise find it impossible to 
attend school. 

Publications. The Student Association publishes the bi-weekly 
Southern Accent and the annual yearbook, Southern Memories. 

Religious Life and Organizations. The local church, the 
Sabbath school, the Missionary Volunteer Society and its auxiliaries, the 
Ministerial Seminar, the Colporteur Club, the mission study groups, and 
the prayer bands contribute to the devotional, missionary, and prayer 
life of the student and afford opportunities for training in leadership, 
teaching, and church endeavors. 

Participation in Extracurricular Activities. In order to insure 
satisfactory scholarship, the extent to which students may participate in 
extracurricular activities is subject to regulation. 



24 Southern Missionary College 

THE PREPARATORY SCHOOL 

Connected with the college is Collegedale Academy, a fully accredited 
preparatory school. While this school has a separate organization, it shares 
with the college the facilities of the latter. For information, write to the 
principal of Collegedale Academy. 



General Academic 
Regulations 



ADMISSION 

Southern Missionary College is open to high school or academy 
graduates who, according to the judgment of the Admissions Committee, 
are qualified to pursue with profit the courses offered by the college. 
Factors in determining eligibility for admission are character, citizen- 
ship, reputation, health, scholastic achievement, and intellectual ability. 

Application Procedure. Application for admission is made on 
a blank supplied by the college. Correspondence concerning admission 
should be addressed to the Secretary of Admissions, Collegedale, Ten- 
nessee. An applicant who has not previously attended Southern Mis- 
sionary College will inclose with the application a small clear photograph. 

An applicant who expects the college to provide living quarters 
should send with the application the $5.00 room reservation fee. This 
will be credited to the first month's statement; or will be refunded if the 
applicant is not admitted, or if he decides not to enter and notifies the 
college not later than August 1. 

• The applicant should request the school last attended to send directly 
to the Secretary of Admissions a complete official transcript of all pre- 
vious secondary school and college credits. It is the responsibility of 
the applicant to see that such credentials are sent to Southern Missionary 
College in time for use in the consideration of his application. No 
portion of the applicant's scholastic record may be omitted from the 
transcript submitted for consideration. 

Transcripts of credit accepted toward admission become the property 
of the college and are kept on permanent file. 

Applications from veterans are considered on the same basis as 
those from other students. Since many service units have only tem- 
porary existence, it is the responsibility of the veterans to obtain and 
submit official certificates of any service-school education for which credit 
is desired. Requests for the evaluation of such credits should be ad- 
dressed to the Registrar. 



26 Southern Missionary College 

Orientation Days. Two days at the beginning of each school 
year are devoted to the orientation of new students. It is essential that 
all freshmen and transfer students be in attendance. During this period 
placement and aptitude tests and a physical examination are given. No 
charge is made for these examinations if they are taken at the appointed 
time. 

Admission on G. E. D. Tests. Admission to full freshman stand- 
ing at Southern Missionary College is possible to candidates, both veterans 
and non-veterans, who, failing to meet the entrance requirements other- 
wise, can qualify on the following points: 1. The candidate must have 
completed elementary school; 2. The candidate must take the General 
Education Development tests (either at Southern Missionary College or at 
any other approved testing station) making an average standard score of 
45 with a minimum score of 35 on each test. In case the candidate 
falls below a score of 35 in any field he must register for at least one 
unit in the secondary school in that field. For non-veterans the minimum 
age limit for eligibility to sit for G. E. D. tests is twenty-one years. 
These tests must be taken prior to or during the first month of atten- 
dance at the college. 

Freshman Standing. Those graduates of accredited four-year 
secondary schools whose scholarship record is acceptable are admitted 
to freshman standing upon properly certified transcript of credits, but such 
students may have subject deficiencies to make up. 

Conditional freshman standing may be given to a person who has 
completed fourteen acceptable units. The remaining two units should 
be earned during the first year of attendance at the college. 

Advanced Standing. A candidate for admission to advanced stand- 
ing from another accredited institution of college rank may receive credit 
without examination for such work, subject to the following require- 
ments : 

(a) He must have an official transcript sent from the institution 
from which he comes, showing his entrance credits at that institution, his 
complete college record including grade of scholarship in each subject 
taken, and a statement of honorable dismissal. 

(b) He must satisfy the entrance requirements of this college. 

(c) Credit is regarded as provisional at the time of the applicant's 
admission. This work will not be recorded and passed on by transcript 
until the applicant has completed satisfactorily in this college, not less 
than twelve semester hours. A maximum of seventy-two semester hours, 
or 108 quarter hours, may be accepted from a junior college. 



General Academic Regulations 



27 



Admission as an Adult Special Student. Persons twenty-one years 
of age or over may be admitted occasionally as special students (not 
candidates for a degree or a diploma), on approval of the Dean and of 
the instructors in whose courses they wish to enroll. Any course taken by 
an adult special student carries lower biennium credit, and a maximum of 
twenty-four semester hours credit may be earned by such students. 



ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS 

Admission by Transcript 

Students may be admitted by transcript (or certificate) of at least 
sixteen units from an accredited high school or academy. As the pattern 
of prerequisite requirements vary those required for each curriculum are 
listed on the following two pages. 

Unless an exception is made by action of the Admissions Committee 
the students' secondary record must average "C" or above.

a. One unit for each year of attendance in an S. D. A. academy, to a total of 

three units. S. D., A. academy graduates must present one unit in Bible 
Doctrines. 

b. Except for candidates for the degrees of Bachelor of Science in Business 

Administration and of Bachelor of Science in Secretarial Science, Business. 
English does not apply on the English requirement. 

C. Both units are required in one language. One unit of credit in a modern 
foreign language is not accepted toward admission, unless the second unit 
is earned or the language continued in college. 

d. Candidates for the degree of Bachelor of Arts with a major in Religion and 

candidates for the degree of Bachelor of Arts in Theology (Ministerial 
Curriculum) have a choice of meeting the entrance requirement in language 
in one of three ways. They may (1) elect to present two units in one foreign 
language as explained in note "c" above, or they may (2) elect to take four- 
teen hours of college Greek rather than twelve as required of those who 
present two entrance units as indicated under note "c" above, or they may 
(3) elect to take twelve hours of Greek and six hours of Hebrew. 

e. These units may be selected from the following: Algebra I or general mathe- 

matics, Algebra II, plane geometry, and trigonometry. Commercial or other 
applied mathematics does not satisfy this requirement. 

f. Where one unit only is required this must be a laboratory science, such as 

biology, physics or chemistry. A second unit requirement may be met by 
general science. 

g. Sufficient to make a total of sixteen units. Should be chosen to support 

curriculum to be followed in college. 

h. The social science requirement may be met by presenting two units from the 
following: American History, World History, General History, European 
History, Civil Government, Problems of Democracy, Economic Geography 
and Economics. One unit must be history. 

i. Algebra and plane geometry. 

j. Biology and one unit of either chemistry or physics. 

k. Shall include one unit of algebra. 

m. Graduation from a secondary school with one unit each of algebra and plane 
geometry is recommended; also, as far as possible the requirements for 
admission to the arts and science curriculum. 

n. One unit of physics is strongly recommended. (See page 57). 

Important Note: The unit pattern given, with graduation from an accredited 
secondary school and completion of necessary college courses, satisfies the 
requirements for admission to S. D. A. schools of medicine, dentistry, dietet- 
ics, and nursing; but inasmuch as requirements for admission to other 
professional schools differ, a student preparing for professional training 
should acquaint himself with the secondary and collegiate requirements 
for admission to the particular school he desires to enter, and plan both 
his secondary school and college programs to meet these requirements. 

Entrance Deficiencies: A student who has sufficient total acceptable units 
but lacks specific required units, may be admitted to college and may 
make up entrance deficiencies, except mathematics, by taking college work in 



General Academic Regulations 29 



these subjects. When a college course is taken to remove an entrance de- 
ficiency, four hours are counted as the equivalent of one secondary school 
unit. These hours apply as elective credit toward graduation, except that 
credit in foreign language and Bible applies toward the basic requirements in 
these fields. Arrangements for removing all entrance deficiencies should be 
made at the time of first registration. 

STUDENTS FROM UNACCREDITED SCHOOLS 

Unless admitted as a result of G. E. D. tests (see page 25) students 
from unaccredited high schools and academies, in addition to the above 
requirements, must take examinations for college entrance. Entrance ex- 
aminations are given in five fields as follows: Foreign Language, History, 
English, Mathematics, and Science. The student chooses four from these 
five fields. These tests are standardized achievement examinations cover- 
ing the subject matter on the secondary level. 

Students falling lower than the 25th percentile, in one or more fields, 
are deemed to have failed in that field and will be required to enroll for 
another secondary unit in that field in order to meet college entrance 
requirements. 

REGISTRATION 

First semester orientation and registration of freshmen and other 
students who have not previously attended Southern Missionary College, 
begins at 8:00 P.M., Wednesday, September 13. Students entering S.M.C. 
for the first time are required to participate in the orientation program. 

Late Registration. A late registration fee of $5.00 is charged for 
first semester registration after September 19, and for second semester 
registration after January 29. 

Experience has demonstrated that any student who enters 
school late accepts a serious handicap at the outset. This is particularly 
true in courses in science, mathematics, and foreign language. There- 
fore, students who come more than two weeks late will not be enrolled 
for full course work, and may be denied admission to certain courses be- 
cause of the difficulty of making up the work. See section regarding 
absences, page 31. The course registration of a student entering after 
the first two weeks of a semester will be reduced one hour for each week 
or fraction thereof missed, including the first two weeks. No student will 
be admitted for the full-course minimum of twelve hours the first 
semester after October 23; the second semester, after March 12. 

Changes in Registration. A student who desires to change his 
course program after he has completed registration, files with the 
Registrar a recommendation from his adviser and approved by the Dean. 



30 



Southern Missionary College 



The Registrar then issues a change-of -program voucher effective the 
date the adviser's recommendation is received by the Registrar's Office. 

During the week immediately following the registration days of 
each semester a student may alter his course program without cost. There- 
after any change in registration carries a fee of $2.00. 

Change-of-program recommendations for any given semester are 
not valid after the beginning of semester examinations. 

A student who absents himself continuously from class without can- 
cellation of registration by drop voucher will be considered as having 
failed, and a grade of "F" for the course will be entered on the student's 
permanent scholastic record. 

Withdrawal. A student withdrawing from school should, before 
leaving, clear his scholastic record by filing with the Registrar a with- 
drawal permit obtained from the Dean. 

Semester Hour. A semester hour represents one fifty-minute lecture 
or recitation per week, or the equivalent, through a semester of eighteen 
weeks. 

Student Study and Work Load. A full-time student in any 
semester is defined as one who is registered for a course load of twelve 
hours for that semester. If a student is working to defray a portion of his 
expenses, his course load will be adjusted accordingly. Since individuals 
vary in capacity, care is taken that each student shall have a reasonable 
balance in his labor-study load. Students who are below average will 
be required to take less work than the following schedule indicates. Those 
with above average ability and scholastic achievement may be permitted 
to attempt a slightly heavier program. These schedules are designed to' 
insure sound scholarship and an essential safeguarding of health. 

In exceptional cases a student with super- 
ior health, ability and previous scholastic 
record may, upon the recommendation of 
his adviser and with the approval of the 
Dean, register for eighteen hours. See page 
120 for further information regarding stu- 
dent labor. 

To receive eighteen hours of credit for the 
semester, a student must make a grade-point 
average of 1.5 on the eighteen-hour load. 
If he falls below this grade-point average, 
his credit will be reduced to sixteen hours, 
the reduction being made in the course in 
which he received the lowest grade. 

Except by approval of the Academic Standards Committee no student 
may receive more than eighteen semester hours credit during any semester. 
Correspondence work in progress is counted in the current load.

General Academic Regulations 31 

Once a student's work-study schedule js arranged, and he, has entered 
upon his duties, his labor foreman may not require extra services with? 
out proper arrangement with the College Dean. Conversely, instructors may 
not require exceptional out-of-class assignments or appointments that in- 
terfere with his regularly scheduled work program without making proper 
arrangements with the College Dean arid the work supervisor. 

Except by permission of the Administrative Council, the minimum 
course load of a student living in one of the residence halls is eight 
hours. 

Admission of Sophomores to Upper Biennium Courses. A sopho- 
more may register for one or more upper biennium courses, for upper bi- 
ennium credit, provided he has earned, with an average of "C" or above, 
fifty hours including basic freshman and sophomore courses already taken, 
and provided, also, that his current registration completes the fulfillment 
of lower biennium basic requirements. 

In exceptional cases, a sophomore may be admitted to an upper 
biennium course for lower biennium credit. 

A sophomore desiring admission to an upper biennium course makes 
application on a blank obtainable from the registrar's office. 

Special Hours. On recommendation of his major professor and by 
permission of the Academic Standards Committee, a senior may earn an 
additional hour in an upper biennium course completed or being carried in 
his major field. 

Auditing Courses. By permission of the Dean and the instructor 
concerned, a student may audit a course which does not consist entirely 
or in part of laboratory, and should register as an auditor at the time of 
registration. No credit is given for a course audited. The tuition charge 
is one-half that for credit, and the course counts at half value in the 
student load. 

Reduction in Credit. Students should take all lower biennium 
course requirements while they are registered in the lower biennium. For 
seniors taking lower biennium required courses the credit in these courses 
will be reduced one-third to one-half the regular amount (the reduction 
not to result in fractional hours). This practice reduces the student's 
total hours' credit but does not affect the fulfilling of specific course re- 
quirements. 

CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS 

Students are classified by the Registrar. The classification for which a 
student qualifies at the first semester registration usually continues through 
both semesters. For reclassification at the beginning of the second 
semester, the student shall make written application and shall meet the 
first semester requirement for the particular classification sought, plus an 
additional twelve hours of "C" average. 



32 Southern Missionary College 

The following schedule governs the classification of students entering 
the first semester, and new students the second semester: 

Freshman. Completion of a four-year high school course, except 
that a freshman may be admitted conditionally on the completion of 
fourteen acceptable units, the remaining two units to be taken during the 
freshman year. 

Sophomore. Thirty hours of "C" average, the hours to in- 
clude basic requirements completed, and the average to be computed 
separately on hours earned in Southern Missionary College. 

Junior. Sixty-two hours of "C" average, the hours to include 
basic requirements completed, and the average computed separately on 
the hours earned in Southern Missionary College. Registration for the 
junior year shall include any lower biennium basic requirements not 
already fulfilled. 

Senior. Sept. Registration 2nd Semester 

Hours that apply Hours that apply 

Including current load 

Full (Theol.) 103 137 

Standing (L. A.) 91 125 

Summer (Theol.) 94 111 

Session (L. A.) 82 99 

The above hours must be of "C" average (this average separately 
on credits from Southern Missionary College). For full standing with 
current registration to satisfy all remaining requirements for a degree. 

For membership in the senior class organization the senior year's 
work must have been carried satisfactorily to the time of the organiza- 
tion of the class. If a course is taken by correspondence during the 
senior year, the transcript of credit and the report that the validation 
examination has been passed must be on file in the Registrar's office 
before the student is eligible for membership in the senior class. 

Adult Special. A person at least twenty-one years of age who is not 
working toward the fulfillment of degree requirements. For further in- 
formation, see "Adult Special" section under "Admission." 

ATTENDANCE REGULATIONS 

Regular attendance at all classes is expected of every student. With 
the exception of those on the Dean's List, no provision is made for 
absences from regular classes. 

Records of absences are kept on a semester basis. // during a semester 
a student is absent in a class more times than that class meets each week, 
his credit in that course will be cancelled. This forfeited credit may be 
restored entirely or in part if satisfactory explanations of absences have 



General Academic Regulations 33 

been filed by the student. Persistent recurrence of absences will be consid- 
ered by the Committee on Curriculum and Academic Standards. 

Absences in each course up to and including a maximum equal to 
the number of class meetings per week per semester constitute a matter 
between the student and the teacher of the course involved. (For example, 
for a class meeting three days a week, three absences per semester are 
allowed without loss of credit hours.) Penalties for these absences are 
handled by the teacher through a lowering of the grade mark. 

Special allowances regarding class attendance are granted students 
on the Dean's List; they are not subject to cut credit for absences pro- 
viding the teacher of the course involved consents, and providing the 
student satisfactorily meets the scholastic requirements of the course. 

Three tardinesses count as one absence. An absence from a class 
immediately prior to and immediately after regularly scheduled vacations 
counts as a double absence. Students entering a class late in the semester 
are regarded as having taken absences during the class periods previously 
missed. 

Chapel Absences. Three unexcused absences from chapel without 
penalty are allowed in a semester. The fourth unexcused absence neces- 
sitates the payment in cash of a fine of $1.00 which cancels only one 
absence, leaving three unexcused. The next unexcused absence brings 
the student's name to the administrative council for consideration. 

Three tardinesses to chapel are counted as one absence. 

To be acceptable, an excuse for absence from chapel is to be filed 
in the office of the College Dean within 48 hours after the date of the 
absence. 

Excuses for absences caused by illness are to be approved by the 
Health Service, but it is the student's responsibility in every instance to 
file his excuse at the office of the College Dean. 

CORRESPONDENCE AND EXTENSION WORK 

Southern Missionary College offers no extramural instruction; there- 
fore all credits from this college must be earned in residence. 

The maximum of correspondence and/or extension credit which may 
apply on a four-year curriculum is twelve hours; for a two-year curriculum, 
six. 

It is strongly urged that students plan their college course schedule so 
that it will not be necessary to take a course by correspondence during 
the senior year. 



34 Southern Missionary Collegb 

Credit earned by correspondence after failure in the same course at 
Southern Missionary College will be accepted only if the entire course 
was taken by correspondence (not taken on a review basis). 

In no case may more than eighteen hours of residence work and cor- 
respondence work be carried in a semester. 

Within the limits outlined above, the acceptance of credit earned by 
correspondence is dependent on the following: 

1. The student must pass the validation examination over the course, 
given by the college. The fee is $1.00 for each validation test. 

2. The grade earned by correspondence shall be at least a "C." 

3. The credit must be applicable on the curriculum in which the stu- 
dent is enrolled. 

4. The correspondence course must have been taken by permission of 
the college during a period of resident attendance, or followed by 
earning in this college twelve hours with a scholarship average of "C." 

EXAMINATIONS 

Course Examinations. Examinations are given in all courses at the 
end of each semester. Students are expected to take examinations at the 
time scheduled, unless prevented by illness or other unavoidable cir- 
cumstance. 

Entrance Examinations. See page 29. 

Exemption Examination. A student may be exempt by examina- 
tion from a specific course requirement for graduation (such as within the 
basic group, or within or accompanying a major or a minor) provided he 
passes with a grade of at least "C" a comprehensive examination covering 
the particular course. The examination for exemption shall be prepared 
and administered under the direction of the Academic Standards Com- 
mittee. No hours of credit are given for an exemption examination. The 
fee is $2.00. 

Special Examinations. Special examinations are given when justi- 
fied by circumstances, such as sickness or necessary absence from the cam- 
pus. 

A re-examination is permitted only upon the vote of the Academic 
Standards Committee. 

Validation Examinations. See section on correspondence work. 
GRADES AND REPORTS 

Midsemester and semester reports of the scholastic standing of each 
student are issued to the student and his parent or guardian. Semester 
grades are kept on permanent record by the college. 



General Academic Regulations 35 

The following system of grading is used: 

Grade Points 
Grade per Semester Hour 

A — Superior 3 

B — Above average 2 

C — Average 1 

D — Below average 

F — Failure Minus 1 

E — Warning for below passing scholarship; no grade 
higher than "D" in the course for the semester; be- 
comes "F" if not removed within a year after date re- 
ported. 

I — Incomplete because of illness or other unavoidable 
delay; becomes "F" if not removed within a year 
after date reported. 

W — Withdrew passing 

Wf— Withdrew failing Minus 1 

Au — Audit 

A grade correctly reported to the Registrar can be changed only upon 
repetition of the course. When a course is repeated to raise a grade, it 
must be done before a more advanced course in the same field is com- 
pleted. Credit may not be earned in a course after a more advanced course 
in the same field has been taken. No grades will be recorded for a course 
for which the individual concerned has not registered. 

DEAN'S LIST 

This honor list, compiled each semester, is composed of the names 
of those juniors and seniors who carried twelve hours or more during 
the preceding semester and who for that semester earned a grade of "B" 
or above in each course carried. 

A student on the dean's list may, at the discretion of the instructor, 
be excused from class attendance so long as his standing in each course is 
"B" or above. 

HONOR ROLL 

An honor roll is compiled twice each semester. It contains the name 
of each student who for the period covered has carried a minimum of 
eight semester hours, has attained a "B" average, and has received no 
grade of "I," "E," "F," or "Wf." 



Graduation Standards 

Southern Missionary College offers curriculums leading to degrees as 
follows: Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Arts in Theology, Bachelor of 
Science with majors in Elementary Education, Home Economics, Industrial 
Arts, Religious Education, and Secretarial Science. 

Junior college curriculums leading to diplomas are elementary teacher 
training, secretarial, premedical, predental, and predietetics. 

GENERAL REQUIREMENTS 

A student may qualify for graduation by fulfilling all curriculum re- 
quirements for the degree or diploma sought and by meeting the standards 
of the college as to character. A student who discontinues attendance for 
a full calendar year must meet the requirements for graduation pub- 
lished in a catalogue current after his re-entrance. 

A student who has received one bachelor's degree may receive a second 
bachelor's degree provided that all requirements for both degrees are 
fully met, and provided also that the curriculum offered for the second 
degree includes at least thirty semester hours earned in an additional 
year of residence and not counted for the first degree. 

GRADUATE RECORD EXAMINATIONS 

During recent years an increasing number of employers and graduate 
and professional schools are requiring applicants for employment or 
admission to file, together with other credentials, their scores in the 
Graduate Record Examinations. To make these scores available to 
graduates as well as to provide a national standard norm by which to 
evaluate the teaching and the learning processes at Southern Missionary 
College these tests are now required to be taken, during the final semester 
of his senior year, by every candidate for a baccalaureate degree. The 
college administers the test each year on the Institutional Testing Pro- 
gram whereby the entire senior class writes on the test on the same day. 
On this basis the cost is $3.00 per person. 

The responsibility for meeting graduation requirements rests primar- 
ily upon the student. He should acquaint himself with the published 
requirements and plan his college course so as to fulfill these requirements. 

CANDIDACY FOR GRADUATION 

To be graduated at commencement a student must have completed 
all requirements for graduation. A student may become a candidate for 
graduation when he enters upon a semester during which it will be 
possible for him to complete all the requirements for his graduation. 
Candidates for graduation at the close of the ensuing summer session are 
permitted to participate in the consecration and baccalaureate services 
with the class finishing in June, but do not appear as graduation candi- 
dates at the June commencement. 



Graduation Standards 37 

Formal application for graduation should be made at the registrar's 
office during the first semester of the senior year. All resident candidates 
for graduation must be members of one of the senior classes. 

GRADUATION WITH HONORS 

A candidate for graduation with a grade point average of 2.35 or 
above may be considered for graduation with honors. Other criteria for this 
distinction shall include such factors as exemplary character, noteworthy 
achievement in student activities, comprehensive examination results, and 
outstanding accomplishments in his major field of study or in independent 
study courses. The initiative in the procedure is a suggestion from the 
major professor to the Academic Standards Committee which in turn rec- 
ommends the candidate to the faculty for approval of this honor. 

GRADUATION IN ABSENTIA 

Each candidate for graduation must be present to receive his diploma, 
unless granted written permission by the president of the college to be 
graduated in absentia. Written application should be made early in the 
second semester of the senior year and permission will be granted only 
in cases of evident necessity. 

The chief commencement exercise is held annually in June. However, 
whenever there are approximately eight or more candidates for summer 
graduation, a commencement exercise is also held in August. Candidates 
for graduation in August participate in all the closing exercises except at 
the commencement in June. No candidate is eligible to receive his diploma 
or degree until his requirements are completed. A candidate who com- 
pletes his work at the close of the first semester may receive his diploma 
in absentia or be graduated with the class at the ensuing commencement.

Suggestive Elective in Education 

MINISTERIAL CURRICULUM (B.A. IN THEOLOGY) 

Students applying for admission to the ministerial curriculum should 
be only those who believe that God has called them to devote their lives 
to Christian service as ministers, missionaries, evangelists or Bible teachers. 
Therefore character, health, missionary attitude and scholarship should 
justify their admission and insure their continuance as ministerial students. 

The curriculum is divided into two parts. The first four semesters 
constitute a pre-ministerial section. Successful completion of this section 
includes the maintenance of a grade point average of 1.0 in all courses 
taken in the major (Religion) and the cognate requirement (Applied 
Theology). Since no course with a grade of "D" may apply on the 
major, any course in the major field with a "D" grade which has been 
included in the average for the first two years shall be Repeated before 
further work in the major is taken, or else replaced by another course. 
Any required course shall be repeated before a more advanced course 
in the major is taken. At the end of the fourth semester, the Committee 
on Ministerial Recommendations will consider applications from those 
students who feel called by God to proceed into the upper biennium

Graduation Standards 45 

While the student may be quite certain on entrance that he intends 
to take the ministerial curriculum, the increasing accuracy in self- 
evaluation made possible by college life sometimes causes a change in 
his aims and objectives. If specialization is started in the freshman year, 
a shift in course usually means a loss in credits. In order, therefore, to 
give the student time to find himself in terms of his life-work, the first 
year of the pre-ministerial curriculum has been arranged as a fitting 
introduction to any liberal arts course. For this reason, first-year Greek, 
formerly offered in the freshman year, is now placed in the sophomore 
year. 

PREPARATION FOR SECONDARY TEACHING 

Because of the increasing number of students interested in prepara- 
tion for secondary or high school teaching, several changes have been 
made in order to more adequately meet these needs. Hereafter all students 
planning to do secondary teaching will be enrolled as candidates for the 
Bachelor of Arts degree. These students will emphasize the field of 
special preparation and obtain a second minor of twenty hours in 
Education and Psychology so as to certify in their teaching fields. 

Students desiring only General Conference Certification and who 
expect to teach in states where no more than fifteen hours in Education 
are required may limit their courses in this department to fifteen hours 
and qualify for certification, although the second minor is recommended 
because some states require as high as eighteen or even twenty hours of 
Education and Psychology. 

Candidates for secondary teaching can, by careful course selection, 

secure content majors and minors in the fields in which they plan to 

teach. In this way candidates can often qualify to teach in three or four 

■ different fields, which greatly increases their opportunities to find suitable 

positions. 

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE 
(With a major in Elementary Education) 

The four-year curriculum in elementary education is designed to meet 
the needs of students desiring a college degree with particular preparation 
foe teaching in the elementary field. It is recommended to those who are 
looking forward to supervisory work in i elementary < education. 

The Collegedale Elementary School, a well-equipped school of four 
rooms, serves as a laboratory school for the department. It affords 
opportunities for observation and student teaching. 

Admission: For admission without deficiency, entrance units as 
indicated on pages 27 and 28 must be presented. 

Major and Minor: This curriculum provides for a major in ele- 
mentary education, and a minor in a field chosen by the student in counsel

Southern Missionary College 



with the director of elementary education. See list of minors in the section 
on requirements for a Bachelor of Arts degree. 

For this curriculum, the requirements as to total hours, minimum 
upper biennium credit, senior residence, grade point average, and resi- 
dence credit and grade point average on the major and the minor, are the 
same as for a Bachelor of Arts degree. For specific information see 
"Graduation Standards." 

A student completing the first two years of this curriculum, with 
fulfillment of the admission, residence, and grade point requirements for 
graduation, will receive a diploma in elementary education. 

The curriculum for the first two years as outlined makes for the 
student a very heavy course program, and it is strongly urged that the 
work be distributed over a summer and two years.

PREMEDICINE 

Nearly all medical colleges now require a bachelor's degree of all 
candidates. Therefore students who expect to transfer later to a medical 
college should register as arts and science students selecting suitable majors 
and minors which will qualify them for a Bachelor of Arts degree. All 
other essentials for entrance to a medical college can be met by selecting 
proper electives. 

Students planning to transfer to the College of Medical Evangelists, 
Loma Linda, California, should select entrance courses as outlined in the 
current bulletin issued by that college. Currently these essential courses 
include:

and a minimum of four hours of religion for each year of college work 
offered for entrance. 

The quality of scholarship required for entrance demands that a 
grade-point average in science subjects and nonscience subjects, figured 
separately, should be not less than 1.5 and a higher grade-point average 
is desirable. Students who do not reach this grade-point average will not 
be recommended. 

JUNIOR COLLEGE CURRICULUMS 

Terminal and pre-professional curriculums are offered on the junior 
college level. Each curriculum, except prenursing, leads to a diploma; but 
since many of the courses in each curriculum are of professional or voca- 
tional .nature, a student graduated from one of these curriculums usually 
has lower division basic requirements to make up if he transfers to the 
curriculum leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree and will need to spend 
more than the usual four years to qualify for this degree. 

GENERAL REQUIREMENTS 

Entrance requirements for each curriculum are indicated on pages 
27 and 28. The following pattern, with graduation from an accredited 
secondary school and completion of the necessary college courses, satisfies 
the requirements for admission to many schools of dietetics, dentistry, 
and nursing; but inasmuch as requirements for admission to professional 
schools differ, a student preparing for professional training should 
acquaint himself with the secondary and collegiate requirements for 
admission to the particular school he desires to enter, and plan both 
his secondary school and college program to meet these requirements. 
For graduation, the same requirements as to character, senior residence, 
and grade-point average, as for a Bachelor of Arts degree, apply to each of 
these curriculums. 

ELEMENTARY TEACHER TRAINING 

Admission: See pages 27 and 28. 

The first two years of the curriculum leading to a Bachelor of

Graduation Standards 57 

PRENURSING 

The following units, with high school graduation and completion 
of the college prenursing courses, satisfies admission requirements of 
many schools of nursing; but inasmuch as requirements for admission 
to professional schools differ, a student looking forward to nurses' training 
should acquaint herself with the requirements for admission to the par- 
ticular school she desires to enter, and plan both the secondary and the 
college program to meet these requirements. 

Admission requirements for many schools of nursing specify the fol- 
lowing sixteen units and graduation from an accredited secondary school 
with a high "C" average: 

English 3 Bible (one unit for each year of 

Foreign Language (both units must attendance at a Seventh-day Ad- 
be in the same language) 2 ventist academy to the extent of 

Mathematics (shall include one unit three units; one unit for high 

of algebra, and does not include school graduates) 1-3 

commercial or other applied math- Science (one unit must be physics ) 2 

ematics) 2 Sufficient electives to make a total 

History 1 of sixteen units. 

Beginning in 1950, many schools of nursing expect to require for 
admission one unit of physics from the secondary school. 

Upon entrance, college prenursing students are given tests in arith- 
metic for nurses and reading comprehension and speed. Remedial work 
in arithmetic and reading will be required of all those who do not pass 
these tests with satisfactory standing. 

The college prenursing work leads to a certificate instead of a 
diploma. It is strongly urged that these courses be taken in two semesters 
and a summer term, or in two years. Students may do some of this 
work by correspondence in order to restrict residence to one year. Such 
correspondence credit should be earned prior to attendance at Southern 
Missionary College.

MEDICAL CADET TRAINING 

Because the present uncertainty in international relations points 
toward the possibility of another sudden world conflict, Southern Mission- 
ary College has reactivated the Medical Cadet Corps. The benefits of 
this training are effective in peace-time disasters as well as in war. Briefly 
stated, the objectives of the program are: 

1. To provide immediately available, efficient and well-trained medi- 
cal assistants in time of national emergency. 

2. To facilitate the transition of draftees from civilian to military 
life. 

3. To teach Adventist standards regarding non-combatancy principles. 

The course is divided into three units as follows: (1) Dismounted 
drill and Physical Training. (2) Instruction and practice in First Aid 
and its extension and adoption to field conditions. (3) Military medical 
duties of Seventh-day Adventists include non-combatancy principles and 
related subjects. 

The plan of the organization, credit granted, time involved, eli- 
gibility, cost of membership, and the certificate of completion are out- 
lined as follows: 

1. Plan of organization. There will be semi-military organization 
with the essential staff officers. Uniforms are required. Military 
orders, drill and procedure will be followed. 

2. Credit earned. College students who complete the course will be 
granted three semester hours of lower biennium credit. 

3. Eligibility. Membership in the Cadet Corps will be restricted to 
physically able college men and to academy boys who are in their 
junior (or senior) years in Collegedale Academy or have passed 
their seventeenth birthday. Cadet Corps will be counted on the 
student's current course load. 

4. Time involved. Approximately 165 hours are required to com- 
plete the course. 

5. Time and place of meeting. The tentative schedule requires a 
meeting of two and a half hours one evening a week 
throughout the school year. This is exclusive of the required 
course in First Aid. 

6. Cost of membership. Tuition will be charged according to the 
credit allowed. Members are charged for uniforms. In addition 
there is a book and supplies fee of $5.00 per semester. 

7. Certificate. Upon completion of the course requirements a cer- 
tificate of competence will be issued to all successful members. 
Each member will receive also an Advanced Red Cross certificate. 



Divisions of Instruction 

Courses of instruction are arranged in seven divisions, as follows: 

I Applied Arts 

II Education and Psychology 

III Fine Arts 

IV Languages and Literature 

V Natural Science and Mathematics 
VI Religion and Applied Theology 
VII Social Sciences 

Of the courses listed, those marked with an asterick probably will 
not be given in 1950-51; those without this mark will be given if 
there is sufficient demand. The college reserves the right to withdraw 
temporarily any course for which there is not adequate enrollment. 

Course Numbers. Courses numbered from 1 to 99 are lower 
biennium courses, taken mainly by freshmen and sophomores; those num- 
bered 100 or above are upper biennium courses, open to juniors and 
seniors. 

A sophomore may register for one or more upper biennium courses, 
for upper biennium credit, provided (1) he has earned, with an average of 
"C" or above, fifty hours including basic freshman and sophomore courses 
already taken, and (2) his current registration completes the fulfilment 
of lower biennium basic and major requirements. In exceptional 
cases, a sophomore who does not fulfill the above requirements may be 
admitted to an upper biennium course, for lower biennium credit. Appli- 
cation for permission to do this is made on a blank obtainable in the 
registrar's office. 

Course numbers separated by a hyphen (e.g. 1-2) represent year 
courses, the semesters to be taken in order given. Credit for the first 
semester only will not apply toward graduation from any curriculum. 

Course numbers separated by a colon (e.g.ll:12) are year courses, of 
which either semester may be taken first, but both semesters must be 
taken before the credit may apply toward graduation from any curriculum. 

Majors and Minors: Available majors and minors, with require- 
ments for each, are listed in their respective sections. Information con- 
cerning majors may be found in the section on curriculums.

Expenses 



Each student entering college, after having met the full financial and 
labor requirement, has actually covered only a part of the full cost of his 
instruction and maintenance. The operating deficit is covered by gifts, 
subsidies, and funds from other sources. The educational opportunity 
afforded each student in Southern Missionary College represents a large 
investment in buildings and equipment, averaging more than two thou- 
sand dollars for each student enrolled. 

ROOM DEPOSIT 

Dormitory rooms may be reserved by mailing a $5.00 room deposit to 
the Secretary of Admissions at the college between May 1 and September 
1. This deposit will appear as a credit on the first statement of the first 
semester. 

In case the student's application is not accepted, or if notice of nan- 
attendance is given the college by August 1, the room deposit will be 
refunded at once by check. 

LATE REGISTRATION 

For late registration (after September 19 and January 29) $5.00 

ADVANCE DEPOSIT AND MATRICULATION FEE 

Both Due on Registration Day 

Dormitory Non-boarding Community 
Advance Deposit $50.00 $35.00 $25.00 

Matriculation Fee 12.00 12.00 12.00 

Advance Deposits are expected of all students including veterans 
whose total charges from the college are not covered by the G. I. Bill of 
Rights. 

The advance deposit is charged only once during the year, and is 
payable on or before the date of registration. It will be credited on the 
final statement of the school year, or at the time of withdrawal. 

The matriculation fee includes the fees for library, lyceum, school 
paper, and year book, and is charged each semester. It is not refundable, 
except in case of withdrawal within the first two weeks of the semester, in 
which case one-half will be refunded. 

For a married couple, each enrolled for eight hours or more of school 
work, the regular advance deposit and matriculation fee will be required 
from each. For a combined total of fifteen semester hours or less, the 
charge will be the same as for one person. 

Students registering for music only are not required to pay any advance 
deposit or fees, except as specified under "Music."

8 Semester Hours 80.00 17 Semester Hours 140.00 

9 Semester Hours 90.00 18 Semester Hours 144.00 

These charges are made in four equal installments for each semester, 
monthly, beginning with the statement for October. 

It is assumed to be the earnest purpose of each student to secure 
an education, and since even those working their entire way have 
time for as much as one-half of a full class load, each student is urged to 
carry at least that much school work. Except by permission of the ad- 
ministrative council, the minimum course load a residence hall student 
may carry is eight hours. 

A full-time student in any one semester is defined as one who is 
registered for a course load of twelve hours for that semester. 

Private work is discouraged, and no credit will be given for it unless 
satisfactory arrangements have been made in advance with the College 
Dean. The charge for private work is the same as for the regular tuition, 
plus tutoring fee. 

Tuition charges terminate only upon presentation of a drop voucher 
obtained at the registrar's office. A proportionate charge will be com- 
puted as of the end of the week in which the adviser's recommendation 
of change of registration is filed at the registrar's office. 

Students entering late will be charged tuition from the beginning of 
the semester, unless they have been attending school elsewhere to the time 
of their enrollment and no make-up work is necessary. One week will be 
allowed at the beginning of each semester for a change of program with- 
out charge. The regular charge is $2.00. A late registration fee of $5.00 
is charged a student who registers later than the registration days. 

MUSIC TUITION AND RENTALS 

The charge for any private music instruction is $24.00 per semester, 
or $48.00 for the year, for a minimum of 15 lessons per semester. 



Expenses 117 

This charge is made in eight installments of $6.00 each, in the same 
manner as the regular tuition. In addition to private instruction in 
voice, classes of from two to five students are arranged at a cost per 
student of $18.00 per semester. All students who wish to take music 
must enroll for it at the registrar's office. There are no refunds for 
specified vacation periods or lessons missed because of the student's 
absence. 

Students who enroll late, or who withdraw before the end of the 
semester, are charged at the rate of $1.60 per week up to a maximum of 
$24.00 for one lesson a week. Withdrawal is made by means of a drop 
voucher obtained at the registrar's office.

' BOARD CHARGES 

The cafeteria plan of boarding is used, which allows the student the 
privilege of choosing his food and paying only for what he selects. The 
minimum monthly charge for dormitory students is $17.00. This covers a 
full calendar month. The average costs run higher than these figures, total- 
ing around $210.00 per year for women and $280.00 for men. 

No allowance is made for absence from the campus except for speci- 
fied vacations of one week or more, and in cases of emergency. Three 
meals a day are served. Students living in the school homes are expected 
to take their meals in the dining room. 

DORMITORY RENT AND LAUNDRY 

A room charge of $16.50 per calendar month is made to each student 
residing in a school home. This charge provides for steam heat, light up to 
150 watts, medical service (as specified below), and laundry not exceed- 
ing $2.00. On this basis, two students occupy one room. If three occupy 
one room, the charge is reduced to $14.50 per month. The rate for 
rooms in the new additions to the dormitories, with private bath, is 
$18.50 for each student. No refund is made because of absence from the 
campus either for regular vacation periods or for other reasons. If the 
laundry charge exceeds $2.00 per month, the excess will be added. 

MEDICAL SERVICE 

The medical care provided through the room charge includes dis- 
pensary service and general nursing care not exceeding two weeks. An 
extra charge of ten cents per tray is made each time tray service is re- 
quired. There will also be an extra charge for calls by a physician and 
special nursing care. Medical services provided to other than dormitory 
residents will be charged according to the service rendered. 

All prospective students should have their eyes tested by a competent 
oculist, and have any necessary dental work cared for before entering 
school. 

TITHE AND CHURCH EXPENSE 

Southern Missionary College encourages the payment of tithe and 
church expense by its student workers. In order to facilitate this practice, 
arrangements are made for students to have charged to their accounts ten 
per cent of their school earnings for tithe, and two per cent for church 
expense. These funds are then transferred by the college to the treasurer 
of the Collegedale S. D. A. Church. 

FUND FOR PERSONAL EXPENSES 

Students should be provided with sufficient funds, in addition to 
money for school expenses, to cover cost of books, clothing, and all personal 
items. They may open deposit accounts at the business office, subject to 
withdrawal in person only, and these funds are available at any time, as 



120 Southern Missionary College 

long as there is a credit remaining of what the student has deposited. 
These deposit accounts are entirely separate from the regular students' 
expense accounts. 

Purchases from the college store or from other departments on the 
campus are made only by cash. At the beginning of each semester, a 
student may purchase from the business office a store voucher which may 
be used at the store for the purchase of books and school supplies only. 

PAYMENT OF ACCOUNTS 

Statements will be issued to students as of the last day of each 
calendar month, covering the month's expenses and credits. This billing 
is subject to discount when paid by the 15th of the following month. The 
gross billing is due on the 25th of the same month. Should a student's 
account be unpaid by the 5th of the succeeding month, he is automatically 
dropped from class attendance until satisfactory arrangements are made. 

EXAMPLE OF CREDIT POLICY 

Period covered by statement October 1-31 

Approximate date of billing November 5 

Discount period ends November 15 

Gross amount due November 25 

Class attendance severed if still unpaid December 5 
This schedule of payments must be maintained since the budget is 
based upon the 100 per cent collection of student charges within the 30- 
day period following date of billing. 

Transcripts of credits and diplomas are issued only when students' 
accounts are paid in full. 

STUDENT LABOR REGULATIONS 

Believing in the inspired words that "systematic labor should consti- 
tute a part of the education of youth," 1 Southern Missionary College has 
made provision that every student enrolled may have the privilege of 
organizing his educational program on the "work-study" plan. "Jesus 
the carpenter, and Paul the tent-maker, . . . with the toil of the craftsman 
linked the highest ministry, human and divine." 2 The college not only 
provides a work-study program, but strongly recommends it to each stu- 
dent enrolled. 

Inasmuch as the student's labor constitutes a part of his education, 
participation in the work program is graded, and a report issued to him. 
This grade is based upon the following: 

% 1 Ellen G. White, Fundamentals of Christian Education, p. 44, Nashville, 
Tennessee, Southern Publishing Association, 1923. 
2 Ellen G. White, Education, p. 217, Mountain View, California, Pacific Press 
Publishing Association. 1903. 



Expenses 121 

Interest Integrity Initiative 

Leadership Dependability Comparability 

Punctuality Cooperation Efficiency 

A record of vocational experience and efficiency is also kept, by se- 
mesters, for each student in which is listed the type of work in which he 
has engaged and his degree of efficiency. This information will be avail- 
able for potential employers. 

The college will assign students to departments where work is avail- 
able and cannot shift students from one department to another merely 
upon request. It should be understood that once a student is assigned to 
work in a given department, he will remain there for the entire school 
year except in rare cases where changes are recommended by the school 
nurse, or are made at the discretion of the college. 

Should a student find it necessary to be absent from work, he must 
immediately make arrangements with his work superintendent. In cases 
of illness, he will also inform the health service. Any student who drops 
his regularly scheduled work without proper arrangements with his work 
superintendent will be suspended from class attendance until he returns 
to work or is excused therefrom. 

SCHOLARSHIPS 

Colporteur Scholarships. For the encouragement of colporteurs, 
the college, together with the local conference, Book and Bible House, and 
publishing house, offers a very liberal scholarship bonus. 

No additional regular cash discounts are allowed in cases where a 
colporteur scholarship bonus is granted. 

In order to qualify for this scholarship, a man needs to spend in 
the colporteur work a minimum of 400 hours; a woman, 350 hours. 
Through the benefits of a colporteur scholarship, it is possible for a 
college student to meet the cash requirement of Plan I by selling only 
$1027.60 worth of subscription books. 

Cash earnings (50% of sales shown above) $513.80 

Scholarship bonus 220.20 

Total cash requirement $734.00 

This covers the following items of school expense for students 
residing in the dormitory: 

Matriculation, two semesters $ 24.00 

Tuition, sixteen hours 272.00 

Room, laundry, medical service, etc 140.50 

Board, average for men 297.50 

Total $734.00 



122 Southern Missionary College 

If the earnings are less than required for a full scholarship, the bonus 
will be proportionately smaller. 

Any extra expenses not provided for in the scholarship may be covered 
by labor or cash from other sources. 

Tuition Scholarships. Each year the college, in conjunction with 
the several local conferences of the Southern Union Conference, awards 
eleven $50 cash scholarships to be applied on tuition: $25 at the end 
of the first semester and $25 at the end of the second. The candidates 
are chosen as follows: The faculty of each designated school nominates 
its candidate; the name, if approved by the school board, is recommended 
to the educational board of the local conference, for final approval. 
The selection of nominees is based on character, scholarship, personality, 
and promise of future leadership. The following schools are eligible to 
participate in this plan: 

Asheville Agricultural School 
Atlanta Union Academy 
Collegedale Academy 
Forest Lake Academy 
Highland Academy 
Madison College Academy 
Pewee Valley Academy 
Pine Forest Academy 
Pisgah Institute 

Note: Two scholarships are given to any class numbering 25 or more. 

Prospective Teachers' Scholarships, The Southern Union Con- 
ference Executive Committee has adopted the following recommendation 
which became effective in the fall of 1943: 

Voted: that we recommend to each local conference the setting up of three 
SI 00.00 scholarships annually to help provide for the first year normal work of 
prospective church school teachers who have completed their secondary education, 
the beneficiaries to be selected by each local conference educational committee, 
and that they be required to teach at least two consecutive years following gradua- 
tion in the conference granting such scholarship. In the event that the beneficiary 
does not fulfill his part of the agreement, the scholarship will become a debt 
payable to the conference immediately. 

In addition to the above, we recommend the continuation of scholarships by 
the conferences to the sum of $100.00 instead of $50.00 as formerly, to Southern 



Expenses 123 

Missionary College, for students from each conference who are completing the 
second semester of the final year of the Teacher Training Curriculum, and who 
otherwise are not financially able to complete the year's work, upon the following 
conditions: 

1. Are recommended by the President and the Chairman of the Department 
of Education of Southern Missionary College. 

2. Are recommended by the Educational Committee of the local conference 
and approved by the conference committee. 

3. Are pledged to give two consecutive years of teaching service in their own 
conference. 

It is understood that in the case of any beneficiary receiving both scholarships, 
the teaching service required will be only a total of two years. 

EDUCATIONAL FUND 

Many young people are deprived of the privilege of attending college 
because or a lack of necessary means. To aid these, an earnest eifort has 
been made to obtain donations for the establishment of an educational 
fund, from which students worthy of help may borrow money for a 
reasonable length of time. Faithfulness in refunding these loans will 
make it possible for the same money to assist many students in school. 
There have been some gifts, and they have been used to help several 
young men and women complete their work in this college. But the 
needs of worthy students have been greater than the funds on hand; con- 
sequently it has been impossible in many instances to render the desired 
assistance. It has therefore been decided to direct the attention of patrons 
and friends of the school to these facts and to invite them to give such 
means as they may desire to devote to this purpose. The college will be 
glad to correspond with any who think favorably of this plan, and will 
continue to use the gifts so that the wishes of the donors may be fulfilled 
and the best results obtained. 

"In each conference a fund should be raised to lend to worthy poor 
students who desire to give themselves to the missionary work; and in 
some cases they should receive donations. When the Battle Creek Col- 
lege was first started, there was a fund placed in the Review and Herald 
office for the benefit of those who wished to obtain an education, but 
had not the means. This was used by several students until they could 
get a good start; then from their earnings they would replace what they 
had drawn, so that others might be benefited by the fund. The youth 
should have it plainly set before them that they must work their own way 
as far as possible and thus partly defray their expenses. That which cosu 
little will be appreciated little. But that which costs a price somewhere 
near its real value will be estimated accordingly." — Testimonies, Vol. VI, 
pages 213, 214.
