Wagner, Chairman Harold Bennett Christian R. Gingrich Paul A. W. Wallace GENERAL STATEMENT FROM time to time members of the Faculty of Lebanon Valley College have been called upon to conduct "extension courses" in various places, so as to meet the needs of such persons as found it impossible to attend the courses given within the college. The service developed very naturally, and almost unnoticed. The college is always willing and ready to extend its services where they are needed and appreciated. To those who have so loyally supported and encouraged the success of this movement the college is greatly indebted. It hopes to meet this obligation by employing its edu- cational facilities in a manner productive of the greatest service to those interested in educational advancement. The courses offered are, for the most part, intended primarily for those engaged in teaching. However, all other qualified persons will be admitted to extension courses, and some courses are more or less definitely planned to meet the needs or interests of persons outside of the teaching group. All courses will be taught by members of the College Faculty, and will be of college grade and receive credit as such. The credits earned by High or Normal School graduates in these courses will be counted by Lebanon Valley College towards its Baccalaureate degrees. THE MASTER'S DEGREE Some of the courses offered in the Extension Department may be taken for credit towards a Master's degree, provided arrange- ments are made in advance with the instructor. Some extra work will be required, such as additional reading, reports, experiments, etc. The complete regulations governing graduate work for the degrees of A.M. and M.S. may be obtained upon application to the Registrar of the College. EXPENSES A fee of $1.00 will be charged for matriculation and registration. The tuition charge for extension courses will be $6.00 for each credit point, a point being a semester hour. For example, the charge for matriculation and registration in courses leading to eight points credit would be $49.00. This is approximately the regular fee for tuition in the college. Fees for the first term are due and pay- able 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 Committee. 3 SCHEDULE OF COURSES CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL Harrisburg, Pa.
