THE courses offered in extension are, for the most part, intend- 
ed primarily for those engaged in teaching. However, all other 
qualified persons will be admitted to these classes, since some 
courses are more or less definitely planned to meet the needs or 
interests of persons outside the teaching group. All courses will 
be taught by members of the College Faculty, and will be of college 
grade. The credits earned by High or Normal School graduates in 
these courses will be counted by Lebanon Valley College towards its 
Baccalaureate degrees. A certificate will be issued to persons who 
are not graduates of a standard High School or its equivalent, pro- 
vided the work is satisfactorily completed. 


A fee of $1.00 will be charged for matriculation and registration. 
The tuition charge for extension courses will be $7.00 for each 
point, a point being a semester hour. For example, the charge for 
matriculation and registration in courses leading to eight points 
credit would be $57.00. This is approximately the regular fee for 
tuition in the college. Fees for the first term are due and payable 
on or before October 12 and for the second term on or before 
February 8. Remittances should be made to Lebanon Valley 
College, and may be sent by mail to Agent of Finance Comnuttee.
