General Information 

History 

The year 1893 marked the beginning of the educational work of 
Seventh-day Adventists in the South. At that time, a small school, after- 
ward to be known as the Southern Training School, was established in 
Graysville, Tennessee. Twenty-three years later, there was a change both in 
name and location, and as Southern Junior College at Collegedale, Ten- 
nessee, it served the denominational constituency of the Southeastern 
states. 

In the spring of 1944 the General Conference of Seventh-day Advent- 
ists authorized senior college status for the institution, under the name of 
Southern Missionary College. 

A three hundred thousand dollar building program, already in prog- 
ress, includes the addition to the school plant of a library, science build- 
ing, music hall, and a church. 

Aims and Purposes 

Primary objectives of Southern Missionary College are the develop- 
ment of refined, Christian character and the training of workers for the 
missionary enterprises which the Seventh-day Adventist denomination is 
carrying on in all parts of the world. 

In an effort to carry out the instruction given in the Spirit of prophecy 
as to three-fold education of the youth, Southern Missionary College 
offers training which fits one for work in religious, professional, business, 
or vocational fields. The sincere hope of the institution is that many of 
its students, under the influence of an atmosphere which is permeated by 
Christian faith and Christian ideals, may catch the vision of evangelism 
and be led to devote their lives to the gospel ministry; that others, under 
the guidance of those who have attained the coveted goal of excellent 
scholarship combined with unaffected piety, may follow the gleam of 
intellectual development, and dedicate their talents to the teaching pro- 
fession; that still others, because of the stress which is placed upon the 
dignity of labor, may turn their attention to the practical side of life, and 
be led to give consecrated service in the world of industries and of 
business. 

This hope is destined to reach its glad fruition only when, from year 
to year, there comes to Southern Missionary College assurance that it has 
instilled into the youth who have sojourned within its walls, principles 
of such rugged sincerity and fearless integrity that each one, as he goes 
forth to meet the future, will pledge himself unhesitatingly to help satisfy 
"the greatest want of the world, the want of men — of men who will 
stand for right though the heavens fall." 



10 Southern Missionary College 



Location 

Southern Missionary College is located on the Southern Railway be- 
tween Chattanooga and Atlanta, eighteen miles from the former city. 
Trains pass through the college estate; the station is known as College- 
dale, which is also the postal address. 

Collegedale is three miles from the village of Ooltewah, a junction 
point of the Atlanta and Knoxville divisions of the Southern Railway. 
Through trains from Washington, Memphis, Birmingham, New Orleans; 
from Cincinnati, Atlanta, and Jacksonville, stop at Ooltewah, thus afford- 
ing excellent railway service. Ooltewah is also on the Lee Highway, which 
connects Washington, D. C, and other eastern cities with Chattanooga 
and other southern points. There is a hard-surfaced highway from Col- 
legedale to Chattanooga, which affords quick access to this scenic and 
historic city of one hundred forty thousand people. Motor buses operat- 
ing between Chattanooga and Apison pass in front of the college, and 
as an accommodation often bring passengers to the dormitories. 

The college is situated on a beautiful nine-hundred acre estate. This 
rural environment has been one of the strongest factors in the develop- 
ment of the institution, in that it has furnished the isolation so necessary 
to genuine progress. 

The Chattanooga air field of the Eastern Air Lines is located a few 
miles from the college. 

Accreditation 

The junior college grades 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 Associa- 
tion of Private Schools. 

1945 Siammer Session 

The college conducts a summer session, usually nine weeks in length. 
Upper division courses in the fifteenth and sixteenth grades are offered in 
addition to regular junior college and academy subjects. 

Governing Standards 

The college is open to young men and young women above the 
twelfth grade, of good moral character and of reasonably sound health, 
who are willing to live in harmony with its principles and regulations, 
and who come for the purpose of doing faithful work. While no reli- 
gious test is applied, all are required to show proper respect for spiritual 



General Information 11 



things, for the Scriptures, for divine worship, and all are expected to 
attend church services. 

Young people should remember that this is a Christian institution. 
Unless they are willing to give due respect to the word of God, the 
Sabbath, worship and other religious services, they should not apply for 
admission. 

It is distinctly understood that every student whose application is 
accepted thereby pledges himself to observe all its regulations, and to 
perform to the best of his ability all industrial duties assigned him. If 
this promise is broken, it follows that by such infraction he forfeits his 
membership in the school, and is retained only by the forbearance of 
the faculty. 

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

Religious Services. Attendance at all regular religious services is 
required. 

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. 

Automobiles. All unmarried students not residing with their par- 
ents or legal guardians are not allowed, except by permission of the 
president, to maintain and operate motor vehicles. This regulation pro- 
hibits the operation of automobiles owned by students and those owned 
by other persons but placed in the custody of, or lent, or rented to, stu- 
dents. 

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. 
See the Students' Handbook for information concerning 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 Students' Handbook.

Extracurricular Services and Activities 

Counseling and Guidance. The counseling service of the college 
is designed to supplement the instructional program by providing oppor- 
tunity for the guidance of every student. Each lower division student 
selects his faculty adviser; the student's major professor is his adviser 
during the last two years. The adviser endeavors to help the student 
adjust his entire program to his individual needs, capacities, and talents, 
so that it will contribute to his success in college and in after life. 

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 officers of the college. 

Information as to room furnishings to be supplied by the student is 
given in the Students' Handbook, which is mailed to each person who 
applies for admission, or is otherwise available upon request. 

Health Service. The health service is under the direction 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. 

Religious Life and Campus Organizations. The local church, 
the Sabbath school, the Missionary Volunteer society and its auxiliaries, 
the Gospel Workers' Seminar, the colporteur band, the mission study 
groups, and the prayer bands contribute to the devotional and prayer life 
of the student and afford opportunities for training in leadership, teach- 
ing, and church endeavors. 

Other organizations which meet the needs of groups with special 
cultural and scholastic interests are the International Relations Club, the 
Future Teachers of America, several music organizations, and the clubs 
in the school homes. 

Participation in Extracurricular Activities. The extent to 
which students may participate in extracurricular activities is subject to 
regulation, in order to help them maintain satisfactory standards of schol- 
arship. 

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. 



General Information 13 



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. Under the direction of a sponsor appointed from the 
faculty, the students edit and publish once each month The Southland 
Scroll, which gives the news of the campus and the vicinity. Southern 
Memories, the yearbook of the college, is published by a student staff 
under the supervision of a faculty adviser.

Expenses 



Each student entering the college defrays only a part of the actual 
cost of his instruction and maintainance. The total expense is not entirely 
met by the amount of cash paid or labor performed in accordance with 
the requirements of the figures set forth in this section. The operating 
deficit of the college 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 equip- 
ment, averaging more than two thousand dollars for each student en- 
rolled. 

Entrance Deposit 

At the time of admission an entrance deposit is required of all stu- 
dents as follows: Dormitory students, $50; resident students, $20. 

This deposit is held as a guarantee that the statement for each period 
will be paid when presented. It cannot be drawn upon during the school 
term for cash, for the payment of a school bill, or for any personal ex- 
penses; it is refunded as a credit on the statement for the final period of 
the school year. There is no exception to this rule unless special arrange- 
ments with the management of the college and the president of the 
student's home conference are made through the church pastor or district 
leader.

Tuition 

The charges for college tuition for the regular school year of nine 
and one-half periods are as follows: 

Each Period School Year 
(9V2 periods) 

18 Semester Hours , $23.00 $218.50 

*16 Semester Hours 21.00 199.50 

12 Semester Hours 17.00 161.50 

8 Semester Hours 13.00 123.50 

It is assumed that all young people come to Southern Missionary Col- 
lege for the express purpose of obtaining an education, and since those 
working their entire way have time for one-half of a full class load, each 
student is urged to carry at least half school work. As an encouragement 
to do this, a minimum charge for tuition will be made on that basis. 

Private work is discouraged, and no credit will be given for it unless 
satisfactory arrangements have been made in advance with the registrar. 

* Sixteen semester hours are considered full school work. 



Expenses 17 

The charge for private work is the same as regular tuition, plus tutoring 
fee. 

Tuition refund will be made only upon presentation of a drop vouch- 
er obtained at the registrar's office. The charge will stop at the end of the 
week in which the drop voucher is obtained. 

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 here and no make-up work is necessary. 

Period Music Charges 

The charge for any private music instruction is $5.00 per four-week 
period. All students taking music must enroll for it at the registrar's 
office and are expected to continue lessons for at least one semester. 

Period charges are on a regular tuition basis with no refunds for speci- 
fied vacation periods or lessons missed because of student absences. In 
case of prolonged illness, charges will be adjusted by the director of 
music. 

The regular family discount on music charges is allowed only when 
three or more students from the same family take music lessons. See the 
discount section for further information. 

Board Charges 

The cafeteria plan of boarding is used, which allows a student the 
privilege of choosing his food and paying for only what he selects. The 
minimum period charge for dormitory students is $15.00 for young wo- 
men and $18.00 for young men. On account of the war, the average 
board for young women is about $20.00 per period, and for young men 
is about $25.00 per period. No allowance for absence from the campus 
is made except for specified vacations of one week or more, and in case 
of emergency. Three meals a day are served. Students living in the school 
homes are expected to take their meals in the dining room. 

The rationing plan as administered by the government requires stu- 
dents to bring with them all food rationing books. These must remain 
in the custody of the college until the student officially withdraws. 

Dormitory Rent 

A room charge of $12.00 per period is made to each student who 
resides in a school home, except to one occupying a room with private 
bath in the new addition of the women's dormitory, in which case the 
charge will be $14.00. On this basis two students are expected to occupy 
one room. The charge includes steam heat and a maximum of 120 watts 
of electric light. In cases where three students must occupy one room the 
period charge will be $10.00. No refund is made because of absence 
from the campus either for regular vacation periods or for other reasons. 



18 Southern Missionary College 



Laundry Charges 

The minimum laundry charge is $3.00 per four-week period. If the 
total expense for the period on a piece basis exceeds this, the actual 
charge, rather than the minimum, is made. 

To prevent loss of garments while being laundered, students should 
have each garment marked with a cloth name tape. The name tapes may 
be secured from the Sterling Name Tape Company, Winsted, Conn. 

Medical Charges 

Medical care is charged for at the rate of $1.00 per period for a 
boarding student and fifty cents for a resident student. This includes 
dispensary service and general nursing care not to exceed two weeks. A 
charge of ten cents is made when tray service is required. The medical 
rate quoted does not cover the charge for visits to a student made by a 
physician, special nursing care, or calls by the school nurse to students 
living outside the school home. No refund is made because of absence 
from the campus either for regular vacation periods or for other reasons. 

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 may be made at the beginning of both the fall and summer 
terms for students to have charged to their account ten per cent of their 
earnings for tithe and one per cent for church expense. These funds are 
then transferred by the school to the treasurer of the Collegedale S. D. A. 
church. 

Change of Program 

When a student drops any of his class work or leaves school, he must 
present to the business office a drop voucher from the registrar's office. 
Tuition will be charged until the end of the week in which such voucher 
is received. Two weeks will be allowed at the beginning of each semester 
for a change of program without charge. 

Personal Expense 

Students should be provided with sufficient funds, in addition to 
money for school expenses, to cover cost of books, clothing, and all per- 
sonal items. We urge that all prospective students have their eyes tested 
by a competent oculist and necessary dental work cared for before enter- 
ing school. 

All purchases from the college store or from other departments on the 
campus must be paid for in cash. No charge accounts are accepted. 



Expenses 19 



Student Trust Funds 

Students who may wish to place surplus funds in safe keeping, sub- 
ject to withdrawal in person only, may open deposit accounts at the busi- 
ness office. These deposit accounts are in no way related to the regular 
student period statements and cash may be withdrawn from them at any 
time as long as a. credit remains on deposit in the student trust fund. 

Cash Withdrawals on Period Statements 

Cash withdrawals by students to be charged to the period statement 
are discouraged unless special arrangements are made with the treasurer by 
trie parents or guardians in advance. Work students on Plan IV may 
draw reasonable sums of cash on account as long as a $25.00 credit bal- 
ance is maintained on their current period statement. 

Employment of Students 

The college endeavors through its numerous vocational opportunities 
to open the way for student self-help — a valuable part of training for life. 
Because of the war emergency, which is affecting the school industries, 
it is urged that all parents and guardians recognize the importance of 
reducing the number of hours which each student must spend in manual 
labor and of increasing the amount of payments in cash. 

In the interest of a well-balanced program of study, work, exercise, 
and rest, the college recommends that in general students follow Plan I 
or II. A limited number of students who are very industrious and frugal 
succeed, by carrying certain kinds of work, in earning the entire cost of 
their education. Only those with a serious purpose and a firm determina- 
tion should expect to be thus successful, ana then only on a restricted class 
program. 

Many letters are received inquiring whether students can work for 
their expenses, wholly or in part. All the college can promise is that to 
those who prove themselves efficient and worthy, such work as is available 
will be furnished. Since the work of the college is performed mainly by 
students, those who are willing and capable will probably find all the 
labor that their school program will allow them to perform. 

The school 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 
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 



20 Southern Missionary College 

of illness, he will also inform the health service. For tardiness, or fail- 
ure to report to work without making satisfactory arrangements, a student 
is fined. Those who repeatedly absent themselves unnecessarily will be 
subject to severe discipline. 

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 $633.08 worth 
of subscription books. An academy student may meet the cash require- 
ment of Plan I by selling only $569.24 worth of subscription books. The 
details of the plan are as follows: 

College Academy 
Cash earnings (50 per cent of sales shown above) $316.54 $284.62 
Scholarship 135.66 121.98 

Total cash requirement for Plan I $452.20 $406.60 

If the earnings are less than required for a full scholarship, the 
bonus and discount are proportionately smaller. Labor credit may be 
earned at the college to make up the additional amount required for 
any of the regular plans. 

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 names of the nominees are an- 
nounced at the time of commencement at the college. The following 
schools are eligible to participate in this plan: 

Asheville Agricultural School 
Birmingham Junior Academy 
Collegedale Academy 
Forest Lake Academy (2) 
Fountain Head Academy 



Expenses 2 1 

Louisville Junior Academy 

Memphis Junior Academy 

Nashville Junior Academy 

Pewee Valley Academy 

Pine Forest Academy 

Pisgah Institute 

Sand Mountain Junior Academy 

Prospective Teachers' Scholarships. The Southern Union Con- 

Iference 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 
$100.00 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 in the sum of $100.00 instead of $50.00 as formerly, to Southern 
Missionary College, for students from each conference who are completing the 
second semester of the final year of the Teacher Training Course, and who other- 
wise are not financially able to complete the year's work, upon the following 
conditions: 

1. Are recommended by the President and the Director of Teacher Training 
of Southern Missionary College. 

2. Are recommended by the Educational Committee of the local conference 
and appproved 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 of a lack of necessary means. To aid these, an earnest effort 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 



Southern Missionary College 



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 costs 
little will be. appreciated little. But that which costs a price somewhere 
near its real value will be estimated accordingly." — Testimonies, Vol. 6, 
pages 213, 214. 

Payment of Accounts 

Charges for tuition, board, dormitory expense, etc., will be made 
each four-week or five-week period, and a statement will be issued to each 
student. The college board has made the costs as low as is consistent 
with educational efficiency. The school, therefore, must expect prompt 
payment of all outstanding accounts. Failure to pay promptly may ter- 
minate a student's connection with the school. 

At the beginning of the first semester all students will register for 
both semesters. At the beginning of the second semester students' ac- 
counts must be in balance before they may continue in attendance. Tran- 
scripts of credits and diplomas are issued only to students whose accounts 
are paid in full. 

Post-dated checks are not acceptable. 

Discounts. A cash discount of five per cent is allowed on the bal- 
ance due the school for the current period's expenses less labor credits, 
if paid within the discount period of fifteen days from date of statement. 
Where an advance payment of at least $150 is made, an additional two 
per cent discount is allowed. 

The fiscal year is divided into thirteen periods whose closing dates 
are as follows, and statements will bear these dates: 

July 1 Oct. 21 March 10

Where there are three or more students from one family, a twenty-five 
per cent discount will be allowed on the total charge for the three highest 
tuition rates, and any students beyond three from one family will be 
accepted at no further charge. This rate applies only to tuition, and is 
applicable to both dormitory and resident students. 

Missionaries on furlough, or their dependents, are allowed, during the 
first year of furlough, a fifty per cent discount on tuition only, provided 
the remaining expenses are paid before the close of the discount period. 
The children of foreign missionaries in active service are granted a dis- 
count of fifty per cent on tuition on these same conditions. This conces- 
sion does not apply to students who earn through labor fifty per cent or 
more of their expenses. 






General Academic Regulations 

Admission Requirements 

Application Procedure. Each applicant for admission will fill 
out and send in an application blank which is furnished, upon request, 
by the college. He must arrange to have sent to the college a transcript of 
his secondary school credits and of such college credits as he may have 
earned and a statement of honorable dismissal. He will also send a health 
certificate, filled in by a physician on a blank provided by the college. All 
credentials should reach the college by August 1, as formal notice of 
acceptance cannot be sent until these forms are on file. Failure to send 
in application and other credentials promptly may result in delayed 
registration and unsatisfactory classification. 

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

Freshman Standing. Graduates of accredited four-year secondary 
schools are admitted to freshman standing upon properly certified tran- 
script of credits, but such students may have subject deficiencies to make 
up. 

Graduates of unaccredited schools, whose official transcripts show 
sixteen acceptable units, may qualify for freshman standing by passing 
such entrance examinations as may be required. 

During the war emergency, conditional freshman standing may be 
given to a person who has completed fourteen acceptable units. The re- 
maining two units are to be earned during the first year of attendance 
at the college. 

In exceptional cases, a person who through no fault of his own is 
unable to furnish a satisfactory transcript of credits, may qualify for 
admission by passing such entrance examinations as may be required and 
administered by the college. 

Advanced Standing. Students who have attended other institutions 
of collegiate rank may be admitted to advanced standing on presentation 
of a transcript of credits, including those from secondary school, and a 
certificate of honorable dismissal. Advanced standing credit is regarded 
as provisional at the time of the applicant's admission, and will not be 
recorded and re-issued on transcript until after the applicant has attended 
this college for one semester and has earned not less than twelve hours 
with a scholarship average of "C." 

A maximum of seventy-two hours may be accepted from a junior 
college. 

Admission as a Special Student. A person over twenty-one years 
of age who has not completed secondary school may be admitted as a 



General Academic Regulations 25 



special student (not a candidate for a degree or a diploma) provided he 
secures the approval of the instructor whose course he wishes to take and 
the approval of the registrar. 

Subjects Required for Entrance 

Entrance Unit. A unit represents the credit for a course ordinarily 
given in an academic year and includes not less than the equivalent of 
120 sixty-minute hours of class work. Two hours of work requiring 
little or no preparation outside of class are considered as equivalent to 
one hour of prepared class work. 

Liberal Arts and Theological Curricula. For a student enter- 
ing a curriculum leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree the following 
units are required: 

English 3 

Foreign language (both units in same language) 2 

Mathematics (algebra and plane geometry recommended; 
commercial or other applied mathematics does not sat- 
isfy this requirement) 2 

Science (laboratory science, such as biology, physics, or 

chemistry 1 

Bible (one unit for each year of attendance in an academy, 

to a total of 3) 1-3 

History (one unit of history, or one-half unit of American 

history and one-half unit of civics) ... ' 1 

Vocational „ 1 

Elective ! Sufficient to make a total of 16 units. 

Elementary Teacher Training Curriculum. It is recommended 
that the same units as for the liberal arts curriculum be submitted, to 
eliminate as far a possible deficiencies for admission to the latter curricu- 
lum if the student desires later to transfer to it. 

Secretarial Training Curriculum. For students entering this 
curriculum no specific subjects are required; but as far as possible the 
pattern of subjects should be the same as for admission to the liberal arts 
curriculum, so as to eliminate as far as possible the deficiencies for ad- 
mission to the latter curriculum if the student later desires to transfer 
to it. 

Pre-Professional Curricula. The following pattern, with grad- 
uation from an accredited secondary school and completion of the neces- 
sary college courses, satisfies the requirements for admission to many 
schools of medicine, dentistry, and nursing; but inasmuch as require- 
ments for admission to professional schools differ, a student preparing 
for professional training should acquaint himself with the secondary 
nd collegiate requirements for admission to the particular school he 



26 Southern Missionary College 

desires to enter, and plan both his secondary school and college program 
to meet these requirements. 

Units 

English - 3 

Foreign language (both units in one language) 2 

Algebra 1 

Geometry 1 

History (one unit may be civics) 2 

Science (chemistry or physics required) 2 

Bible (one unit for each year of academy attendance) 1-3 

Vocational 1 

Electives 3-1 

Total 16 

Bible Instructors' Curriculum. No specific subjects are required 
for admission, but it is suggested that the same units as for admission to 
the liberal arts curriculum be submitted, to eliminate as far as possible 
deficiencies for admission to the latter curriculum in case of transfer to it. 

Deficiencies. Students may make up deficiencies in required entrance 
subjects, except mathematics, by taking college work in these subjects. 
These hours apply as elective credit toward graduation, except that credit 
in foreign language and theology applies toward the basic requirements 
in these fields. Arrangements for removing all entrance deficiencies are 
to be made at the time of first registration. 

When a college course is taken to remove an entrance deficiency, four 
hours are counted as the equivalent of one secondary school unit. 

Miscellaneous. One unit of credit in a modern foreign language 
is not accepted toward admission, unless the second unit is taken or the 
language continued in college. 

Registration 

Registration for both semesters begins at 9:00 a.m. Monday, Septem- 
ber 10. It is important that students complete their registration during 
the days assigned for that purpose. 

Freshmen and others entering this college for the first time take die 
placement examinations given by the college at the time of registration. 

Experience has demonstrated the fact that any student who enters 
school late places upon himself a serious handicap at the outset. This 
is particularly true in such courses as science, mathematics, and foreign 
language. Therefore, students who come more than two weeks late will 
not be enrolled for full course work, and may be denied admission to 
certain courses because of the difficulty of making up the work. 



General Academic Regulations 27 

The fifteen per cent penalty rule, explained on page 28, will apply 
to late registrants in the same manner as it applies to those who miss 
classes during the school year. 

Student Load. Sixteen semester hours constitute a normal full 
load for a semester. On approval of the dean, a student may register for 
eighteen hours; but in no case may more than eighteen hours of residence 
work, or of residence and correspondence work, be carried during a 
semester. If a student is working to defray expenses, his course load 
will be adjusted accordingly. The mimimum semester load of a student 
living in the dormitory is eight hours. 

Course Numbers. Odd numbers represent first semester courses; 
even numbers, second semester courses. Courses numbered below 100 
are lower division courses, taken largely by freshmen and sophomores; 
those numbered 100 or above are upper division courses, open to juniors 
and seniors. In exceptional cases, sophomores may be admitted to certain 
upper division courses, for lower division credit. 

Courses marked with two numbers separated by a hyphen (e.g., 1-2) 
are year courses, the semesters to be taken in the order given. Credit 
for the first semester only will not apply toward meeting the require- 
ments for a diploma from any curriculum. 

Courses with numbers separated by a colon (e.g. 11:12) are year 
courses of which the second semester may be taken first; but both semes- 
ters must be taken before the credit may apply toward graduation from 
any curriculum. 

Changes In Registration. Students may change their program 
without charge, upon approval of the registrar and the teachers concerned, 
during the first two weeks of each semester. A fee of one dollar will 
be charged for change of program after the first two weeks. 

After registration is completed, any change of program is made by 
means of a program voucher obtained from the registrar. This voucher is 
to be signed by the instructor in each course affected, and returned by 
the student to the registrar's office. The change in registration is not 
effective until the voucher has been signed and returned. 

A course dropped after the first nine weeks of a semester, unless 
on account of illness or other unavoidable circumstances, will be entered 
on the permanent records as a failure. A course dropped without per- 
mission at any time will be recorded as a failure. 

Drop vouchers affecting registration for the current semester are not 
issued after the beginning of semester examinations. 

No grades will be recorded for a student who has not been properly 
registered for a course. 

Auditing Courses. A student may audit a course only by permis- 
sion of the registrar and the instructor concerned, and should register 



28 Southern Missionary College 



as an auditor at the time of other registration. No credit is given for 
courses audited. The tuition charge is one-half that for credit courses. 

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

Classification of Students 

Students are classified by the registrar. The following schedule 
governs the classification of students; 

Freshmen. 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 with a "C" average, the hours to in- 
clude basic requirements completed, and the ayerage to be computed 
separately on hours earned in Southern Missionary College. 

Junior. Sixty-two hours with a "C" average, the hours to include 
basic requirements completed, and the average computed separately on 
the hours earned in Southern Missionary College. 

For membership in the junior class organization the second semester, 
the junior year's work must have been carried satisfactorily to the time 
of organization, and the remaining hours to be completed for a degree 
shall not be more than can be earned in one summer and the senior year. 

Senior. Ninty-four hours of "C" average (this average separately 
from Southern Missionary College) at the beginning of the first semes- 
ter, with current registration to satisfy all remaining requirements for a 
degree. 

For membership in the senior class organization the second semester, 
the senior year's work must have been carried satisfactorily to the time 
of organization. 

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 and 
chapel is expected of every student. 

A student will be allowed one unexcused absence per credit hour 
in each class up to a maximum of three absences per semester. 

A student missing 1 5 per cent of more of the total class appointments 
will receive a grade of "F" in that course. The student may apply to 
the faculty for exception in case of serious illness or for other causes not 
under his control where the absences would result in a penalty to his 
grade. 



General Academic Regulations 29 



Three tardinesses are counted as one absence, and absence from lab- 
oratory is considered as a class absence. An absence incurred the last time 
a class meets before a vacation, or the first time after a vacation, will 
carry a double penalty. 

Excuses for absences should be submitted the first day the student 
resumes class work and will not be considered if submitted later than 
one week following the absence. 

The Health Service will approve and turn in to the registrar's office 
excuses for students absent because of illness. 

Chapel services are held three times each week. Three absences from 
chapel are allowed in one semester. If a student permits more than three 
unexcused absences from chapel to accumulate, he will be asked to pay 
a penalty fine of one dollar in cash before he is permitted to continue 'his 
class work. Any absence from classes caused by suspension due to irregu- 
larity in chapel attendance will be counted. 

Extension Work 

Credit for courses taken by correspondence may be accepted under 
any one of the following conditions, provided the student has passed the 
validation examination given by the college: 

1. If taken by permission of the college and completed within a 
semester of resident attendance in this college. 

If a course is taken by correspondence during the senior year, the 
transcript of credit and a report that the validation examination has been 
passed must be on file in the office of the registrar before the student 
is eligible for membership in the senior class. 

2. If it is the last eight hours for graduation, which may be taken in 
absentia. 

3. If followed by the earning of twelve hours, with a "C" average, 
in residence in this college. 

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. 

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

Examinations 

Course Examinations. Examinations are given in all courses at the 
end of each semester. Students are expected to take examinations at the 



30 Southern Missionary College 



time scheduled, unless prevented by illness or equally unavoidable cir- 
cumstance. 

Special Examinations. Special examinations are given when justi- 
fied by circumstances, such as sickness or necessary absence from the cam- 
pus. A fee of one dollar is charged for each special examination. In- 
structors may give such examinations only upon evidence of properly 
signed receipts. 

A re-examination is permitted only upon vote of the faculty. 

Validation Examinations. A validation examination, given by 
the college, is required over a course taken by correspondence. A vali- 
dation examination may be required to validate credits earned in resi- 
dence in another institution. The fee for a validation examination is $1.00. 

Entrance Examinations. See "Freshman Standing" under "Ad- 
mission." 

Grades and Reports 

Reports of scholarship are issued to students and their parents at the 
mid-semester and at the close of the semester. Semester grades are per- 
manently recorded by the college for future reference. 

The following system of grading is used: 

Grade Grade Points 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; becomes "F" 
if not removed within a year after date reported. 
I — Incomplete because of illness or other unavoidable de- 
lay; becomes "F" if not removed within a year after 
date reported. 
W — Withdrew passing 
Wf— Withdrew failing 
Au — Audit 

Unless acceptable explanation, such as serious illness, can be given, 
a student whose work is reported unsatisfactory may be asked to with- 
draw from school. 

A grade correctly reported to the registrar can be changed only upon 
repetition of the course. 



General Academic Regulations 31 



When a course is repeated to raise a grade, it must be done before 
a more advanced course in the same field is completed. 

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 con- 
cerned has not registered. 



Graduation Standards 



Southern Missionary College offers curricula leading to the degree 
of Bachelor of Arts, and to the following junior college diplomas: Bible 
instructors, elementary teacher training, secretarial, medical preparatory, 
predental, and predietetics. A student may qualify for graduation by 
meeting the standards of the college as to personal character, and fulfill- 
ing the graduation requirements published in the catalogue for any year 
during which he maintains continuous residence leading to graduation. A 
student who discontinues attendance for two consecutive years is subject 
to the requirements for graduation as published in a catalogue current 
after his re-entrance. 

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 pos- 
sible for him to complete all the requirements for graduation. 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 the senior 
class. 

Honors Diploma 

A college student of good character whose record at the time of 
graduation shows no grade below C and with a point rating of 2.45 or 
above, will be granted an "Honors" diploma. 

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. Request should be made early in the second semes- 
ter of the senior year and permission will be granted only in cases of 
evident necessity. 

Since the college has but one graduation exercise a year, at the close of 
the winter session, a student who completed at the close of the summer 
session the requirements for graduation will be graduated the following 
spring.

Junior College Curricula 

Terminal and pre-professional curricula are offered on the junior col- 
lege 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 curricula usually 
has lower division basic requirements to make up if he transfers to a 
curriculum leading to a degree. 

Entrance requirements for each curriculum are given immediately 
preceding the curriculum. 

For graduation, the same requirements as to character, senior residence, 
and grade-point average, as for a degree, apply to each of these curricula.

PREMEDICAL 

A large number of medical colleges require three years of training 
for admission, but the College of Medical Evangelists occasionally ac- 
cepts one who has less than three years of credits of high scholastic rank. 
Two years of the premedical training may be taken in Southern Mission- 
ary College, a diploma being granted to those who qualify. 

A scholarship average of 1.5 in college science courses and non-science 
courses, figured separately, is required for admission to the College of 
Medical Evangelists. 

Prerequisite: Graduation from secondary school. It is recommended 
that the entrance units include English, three units; foreign language, two 
units (both in the same language); algebra, one unit; plane geometry, 
one unit; history, one unit; and electives chosen from two or more of 
the preceding fields. 

Students planning to enter the College of Medical Evangelists should 
fulfill high school requirements as outlined in the bulletin published by

PRENURSING 

The following pattern, 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. 

Units 

English 3 

Foreign Language (both units must be in the same language) 2 
Mathematics (shall include one unit of algebra, and does 

not include commercial or other applied mathematics) 2 

History 1 

Bible (one unit for each year of attendance at a Seventh- 
day Adventist academy to the extent of three units; one 

unit for high school graduates) 1-2 

Science (one unit must be chemistry or physics) 2 

Sufficient electives to make a total of sixteen units. 

Prenursing students are required to pass nursing aptitude tests upon 
entering the college. * 

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

Courses of Instruction 

The courses of instruction offered by the college are grouped by de- 
partments, which are arranged alphabetically. The college reserves' the 
right to withdraw temporarily any course for which there is not adequate 
enrollment. Starred courses probably will not be given, 1945-46. 

Course Numbers. Courses numbered from 1 to 99 are lower division 
courses, taken mainly by freshmen and sophomores; those numbered 
100 or above are upper division courses, open to juniors and seniors. In 
exceptional cases, a sophomore may be admitted to an upper division 
course, for lower division credit. 

Course numbers separated by a hyphen (e.g. 1-2) represent year 
courses, tfce 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. 11:12) 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.

eighth grade, of good moral character and of reasonably sound health, 
who are willing to live in harmony with its principles and regulations and 
who come for the purpose of doing faithful work. While no religious 
test is applied, all are required to show proper respect for spiritual things, 
for the Scriptures, for divine worship, and all are expected to attend 
church services. 

It is distinctly understood that every student who applies for admission 
to the academy thereby pledges himself to observe all its regulations. If 
this pledge is broken, it follows that by such infraction he forfeits his 
membership in the school, and is retained only on the forbearance of the 
faculty. It is also a part of the student's contract that he, to the best of his 
ability, will perform all the industrial duties assigned him. See the college 
section and the Students' Handbook for further information concerning 
conduct regulations. 

All students entering school are required to take the special placement 
examinations which are given at the time of registration. 

A person planning to enter Collegedale Academy for the first time 
should have sent to the registrar of the academy a certified copy of his 
eighth grade certificate or a statement from the principal that the eighth 
grade has been completed satisfactorily, and a transcript of all academy 
or high school credits earned. These should reach the academy in time to 
be evaluated before the opening day of school, and failure to have them 
sent in early may result in delayed registration and unsatisfactory classi- 
fication. Blanks for this purpose will be sent upon request. If the appli- 
cant is admitted, all admission credentials become the property of the 
school and are not returned to him. 

Registration 

Registration begins Monday, September 10, 1945, at 9:00 A. M. It is 
highly desirable that all students enter at the beginning of the school 
year. Students who come more than two weeks late will not be enrolled 
for full class work, and they may be denied entrance to certain courses 
because of the difficulty of making up work. 

The fifteen per cent penalty rule, explained in the section on absences, 
will apply to late registrants in the same manner as it applies to those who 
miss classes during the school year. 






General Academic Regulations 

Class Load 

Four units and physical education constitute full work for a school 
year of thirty-six weeks. Requests for more than full work may be made 
to the principal; but not more than five units will be allowed, nor will 
permission to carry more than full work be granted to any student whose 
scholarship during the preceding year has not been above average. Stu- 
dents who are registered for a normal load may be asked to reduce their 
load if their scholarship is not satisfactory. 

Students who earn part of their expenses while in school should not 
plan to take full class work; their class load is reduced in proportion to 
the amount of industrial work assigned. 



Changes in Class Schedule 

Students may change their program without charge, upon approval of 
the registrar and teachers concerned, during the first two weeks of each 
semester. A fee of one dollar will be charged for change of program 
after the first two weeks. 

No student may enter or drop any class without presenting to the in- 
structor of that class a permit from the registrar. This permit must be 
countersigned by the instructor and returned by the student to the regis- 
trar. No student will be considered dropped from a class, and tuition 
will continue, until such a permit has been properly signed and returned. 

A course dropped after the first nine weeks, unless on account of 
illness or other unavoidable circumstances, will be entered on the per- 
manent records as a failure. A course dropped without permission at 
any time will be recorded as a failure. 

No grades will be recorded for a student who has not been properly 
registered for a course. 

Absences and Excuses 

Regular attendance at all classes and chapel is expected of every 
student. 

An academy student will be allowed one unexcused absence per class 
each six-week period, but these absences may not be cumulative. 

A student missing 15 per cent or more of the total class appoint- 
ments shall receive a grade of "F" in that course. The student may apply 
to the faculty for exemption in case of serious illness or for other causes 
not under his control where the absences would result in a penalty to 
his grade. 



80 COLLEGEDALE ACADEMY 

Three tardinesses are counted as one absence, and absence from lab- 
oratory is considered a class absence. An absence incurred the last time 
a class meets before a vacation, or the first time after a vacation, will 
carry a double penalty. 

Excuses for absences should be submitted the first day the student 
resumes class work and will not be considered if submitted later than 
one week following the absence. 

A fine of one dollar will be required of any student having more than 
three unexcused absences from physical education or study hall during 
one semester. This charge shall be settled before class work is continued. 

Absences for sickness shall be reported the first time the student comes 
back to class after the sickness. The health officer shall fill out and turn 
in to the registrar's office all absence blanks for sickness. 

Chapel services are held three times each week. Three absences from 
chapel are allowed in one semester. If a student permits more than three 
unexcused absences from chapel to accumulate, he will be asked to pay a 
penalty fine of one dollar in cash before he is permitted to continue his 
class work. Any absence from classes caused by suspension due to ir- 
regularity in chapel attendance will be counted. 

Grade Reports 

Reports of scholarship and deportment are made in duplicate to par- 
eats and students at the close of each school period of six weeks. All se- 
mester grades are permanently recorded by the college for future reference. 

The following system of marking is used: A, superior; B, above aver- 
age; C, average; D, below average; I, incomplete; E, condition; F, failure; 
W, work passing at time of withdrawal; Wf, failing at time of with- 
drawal. 

Unless acceptable explanation, such as serious illness, can be given, 

a student whose work is reported unsatisfactory may be asked to withdraw 

t from school.

Grade Points 

Grade points are computed according to the following scale:

General Academic Regulations 81 

Credit Evaluation 

A "unit" is defined as the amount of credit granted for one high 
school subject satisfactorily pursued during a year of thirty-six weeks, 
with forty-five minute recitation periods, five days a week, or the equiva- 
lent. 

"Incompletes" and Examinations 

A student who redeems an "incomplete" will receive the grade earned. 
A student who redeems a "condition" will receive a grade of "D." 

An incomplete or condition becomes a failure if not removed within 
one year. 

Special examinations are given when justified by circumstances, such 
as sickness or necessary absence from the campus. A fee of one dollar 
is charged for each special examination. Instructors may give such exami- 
nations only upon evidence of properly signed receipts. 

A re-examination is permitted only upon vote of the faculty. 

Physical Education 

Each year a course in physical education is required of all students, 
except those excused by the school nurse. 

Juniors 

To be eligible for membership in the junior class, a person must have, 
upon completion of his current registration, at least eleven units 
exclusive of credit in physical education, with no more units to be earned 
for graduation than can be completed in one year. 

Requirements for Graduation 

1. The minimum requirement for graduation from Collegedale Acad- 
emy is sixteen units exclusive of credit in physical education; some of the 
units are prescribed, others are elective. 

2. The year preceding a student's graduation must be spent in College- 
dale Academy. At least three units of the senior year's credits must be 
earned in this academy. 

3. No credit toward graduation is given for one year of language, 
unless two years of another language are completed. 

4. Transcripts of all courses completed in other schools must be on 
file before a student's work can be checked for graduation. 

5. All resident candidates for graduation must be members of the 
senior class. 

6. Since the institution has but one graduation exercise a year, at 
the end of the winter session, candidates completing their requirements 
in the summer will be graduated the following spring.

actual cost of his instruction and maintenance. The total cost is not en- 
tirely met by the amount of cash paid or labor performed in accordance 
with the requirements set forth in this section. The operating deficit of 
the academy is covered by gifts, subsidies, and funds from other sources. 
The educational opportunity afforded each student in Collegedale Academy 
represents a large investment in buildings and equipment averaging more 
than two thousand dollars for each student enrolled. 



Entrance Deposit 

At the time of admission an entrance deposit is required of all stu- 
dents as follows: Dormitory student, $50.00; resident student, $20.00. 

This deposit is held as a guarantee that the statement for each period 
will be paid when presented. The deposit cannot be drawn upon during 
the school term for cash, for the payment of a school bill, or for any per- 
sonal expenses; it is refunded as a credit on the statement for the final 
period of the school year. There is no exception to this rule unless special 
arrangements with the management of the college and the president of the 
student's home conference are made through the church pastor or the 
district leader.
