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.
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.
