Through extension work in Harrisburg and through evening and Satur- 
day classes held at the College in Annville, Lebanon Valley College has en- 
deavored, for a number of years, to make it possible for teachers and others 
who could not attend regular college sessions, to obtain college credit and 
secure a college degree. 

On account of the success of these classes, the College is offering an in- 
creased number of courses in Harrisburg and at Annville for the academic 
year I937-I938. 

The courses offered in extension, Saturday and evening classes are pri- 
marily for those engaged in teaching and for those proceeding toward a degree. 
During the past few j^ears an increasing number of registered nurses and 
State employees have registered for the courses. All courses will be taught by 
members of the College faculty, and will be of college grade. The credits 
earned by High School or Normal School graduates in these courses will be 
counted by Lebanon Valley College toward its Baccalaureate degrees. A cer- 
tificate will be issued to persons who are not graduates of a standard High 
School or its equivalent, provided the work is satisfactorily completed. 

Courses taken at the College count toward residence requirements for a 


A fee of one dollar will be charged for matriculation. The tuition charge 
for Extension and Saturday and Evening Courses will be $8.00 for 
each semester hour of credit. A special tuition fee of $5.00 per semester hour 
will be charged persons who desire to take any of the courses as auditor, 
without examination and without credit. 

Fees for the first semester are due and payable on or before October 15, 
and for the second semester on or before February 15. Remittances should 
be made to Lebanon Valley College and may be sent by mail to J. W. Esben- 
shade, Secretary of the Finance Committee.
