Millsaps College has as Its primary aim the development of men and 
women for responsible leadership and well-rounded lives of useful service to 
their fellow men, their country, and their God. It seeks to function as a com- 
munity of learners where faculty and students together seek the truth that 
frees the minds of men. 

As an institution of the Methodist Church, fy^illsaps College is dedicated to 
the idea that religion is a vital part of education; that education is an integral 
part of the Christian religion; and that church-related colleges, providing a 
sound academic program in a Christian environment, afford a kind of 
discipline and influence which no other type of institution can offer. The col- 
lege provides a congenial atmosphere where persons of all faiths may study 
and work together for the development of their physical, intellectual, and 
spiritual capacities. 

As a liberal arts college, Millsaps seeks to give the student adequate 
breadth and depth of understanding of civilization and culture in order to 
broaden his perspective, to enrich his personality, and to enable him to think 
and act intelligently amid the complexities of the modern world. The cur- 
riculum is designed to avoid premature specialization and to integrate the 
humanities, the social studies, and the natural sciences for their mutual 

The college recognizes that training which will enable a person to support 
himself adequately is an essential part of a well-rounded education. On the 
other hand, it believes that one of the chief problems of modern society is that 
in too many cases training as expert technicians has not been accompanied 
by education for good citizenship. It offers, therefore, professional and pre- 
professional training balanced by cultural and humane studies. In an environ- 
ment that emphasizes the cultural and esthetic values to be found in the study 
of language, literature, philosophy, and science, the student at Millsaps can 
also obtain the necessary courses to prepare him for service in such fields as 
teaching, journalism, social work, and business or for professional study in 
these areas as well as in theology, medicine, dentistry, engineering, law, and 
other fields. 

As an institution of higher learning, Millsaps College fosters an attitude of 
continuing intellectual awareness, of tolerance, and of unbiased inquiry, 
without which true education cannot exist. It does not seek to indoctrinate, but 
to inform and inspire. It does not shape the student in a common mold of 
thought and ideas, but rather attempts to search out his often deeply hidden 
aptitudes, capacities, and aspirations and to provide opportunities for his max- 
imum potential development. It seeks to broaden his horizons and to lift his 
eyes and heart toward the higher and nobler attributes of life. The desired 
result is an intelligent, voluntary dedication to moral principles and a growing 
social consciousness that will guide him into a rich, well-rounded Christian life, 
with ready acceptance of responsibility to neighbor, state, and church. 

— adopted by the Faculty and Board of 
Trustees of Millsaps College, 1955-56 


information for 
prospective students 


Millsaps College was founded in 1890 by the Methodist Church as a "Christian 
college for young men." The philanthropy of Major Reuben Webster Millsaps and 
other Methodist leaders in Mississippi enabled the college to open two years later on 
the outskirts of Jackson, the state capital, a town of some 9,000 population. The 
beginnings were modest: two buildings, 149 students (two-thirds of whom were 
enrolled in a preparatory school), five instructors, and an endowment of $70,432. Fif- 
ty years later, the student body numbered 599 and the faculty had increased to 33. 
Women were admitted at an early date and the graduation of Sing Ung Zung of 
Soochow, China, in 1908, began a tradition of the college's influence beyond the 
borders of the state. 

Millsaps' first president, William Belton Murrah, served until 1910. Other 
presidents have been: David Carlisle Hull (1910-1912), Dr. Alexander Farrar 
Watkins (1912-1923), Dr. David Martin Key (1923-1938), Dr. Marion Lofton Smith 
(1938-1952), Dr. Homer Ellis Finger, Jr., (1952-64), Dr. Benjamin Barnes Graves 
(1965-1970), and Dr. Edward McDaniel Collins, Jr. (1970-1978). Dr. George Marion 
Harmon was named president in the fall of 1978. 


The close personal relationship among students, faculty and the administration 
is one of the most vital parts of the Millsaps experience. A liberal arts college design- 
ed to train students for responsible citizenship and well-balanced lives, Millsaps of- 
fers professional and pre-professional training coupled with cultural and disciplinary 
studies. Students are selected on the basis of their ability to think, desire to learn, 
good moral character and intellectual maturity. The primary consideration for admis- 
sion is the ability to do college work satisfactory to the college and beneficial to the 

Millsaps' 1,100-member student body represents about 30 states and several 
foreign countries. Students come from 25 religious denominations. All are urged to 
take advantage of the educational and cultural offerings of Mississippi's capital city 
of Jackson. 

Research facilities available are: The State Department of Archives and 
History, the State Library, the library of the State Department of Health and the 
Jackson Public Library. Together, they provide research facilities found nowhere 
else in the state. Cultural advantages include: The Jackson Symphony Orchestra, 
The Jackson Ballet Company, New Stage Theatre, Mississippi Opera Association, 
and musical, dramatic and sporting events held at the City Auditorium and the 
Mississippi Coliseum. 

Millsaps is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools 
and approved by the American Association of University Women and the University 
Senate of the United Methodist Church. It is recognized by the General Board of 
Education of the United Methodist Church as one of its strongest institutions. 


The Millsaps-Wilson Library has more than 1 50,000 volumes and 650 periodical 
subscriptions. It provides individual study carrels and rooms as well as browsing and 
lounge areas. There is a collection of audiovisual materials and listening facilities. 
Special collections are: the Lehman Engel Collection of books, manuscripts, record- 
ings, and correspondence relating to the theatre and the arts; the Mississippi 
Methodist Archives; a rare book collection; the Kellogg Collection of juvenile books 
and curriculum materials; U.S. government documents; and the Millsaps Archives. 
The library belongs to the Central Mississippi Library Council and the Southeastern 
Library Network. 


In today's complex society, students need to be able to understand the role of 
the computer. Accordingly, a good college must have a strong computing resource. 
Millsaps has one of the finest computing facilities available for easy student access. 

From several terminal cluster locations on campus, students and faculty can use the 
Digital PDP-11 RSTS/E timesharing computer system which is located in the 
Academic Complex. Additional resources are the PDP-8/e laboratory and teaching 
computer and the EAI-TR20 analog computer which are located in Sullivan-Harrell 


The 100-acre campus is valued at about $30 million. Chief administrative of- 
fices are in Whitworth Hall. Murrah Hall, built in 1914, has been recently renovated 
to house the School of Management. Sullivan-Harrell Science Hall was built in 1928 
and was renovated in 1963 to house the science program. 

The Christian Center, completed in 1950, was built with gifts from Mississippi 
Methodists, alumni and friends. It has a 1,000 seat auditorium, a small chapel, 
classrooms and offices. In 1967, the stage was renovated into a modern theatre 

The James Observatory is an historical landmark located on the northwest cor- 
ner of the campus. 

The Physical Activities Center, dedicated in 1 974, has courts for basketball, ten- 
nis, badminton, and volleyball. Weight-training and physical therapy rooms are also 
included in this multi-purpose facility. An Olympic-sized swimming pool is adjacent to 
this facility. Other athletic facilities include tennis courts and fields for football, 
baseball, soccer, and track. 

The Boyd Campbell Student Center houses the office of student affairs, the 
bookstore, post office, student activity quarters and a recreation area. The grill and 
dining hall are located in the student center also. 

There are three residence halls for women and two for men. All are air condi- 

The Academic Complex, completed in 1971, includes a recital hall in which is 
located a 41 -rank Mohler organ. The complex houses Music, Art, Political Science, 
Computer Services, Business Office, and the Office of Records. It also contains 
skylit art studios, a student computer terminal room, a music laboratory and

showing all work attempted at other colleges or universities are required. These 
policies apply to the transfer applicant: 

1. Full credit is normally allowed for work taken at other accredited institutions.

Scores on the appropriate C.L.E.P. subject matter examination, Advanced 
Placement examination, or C.E.E.B. achievement test should be sent to the Office of 
Records for evaluation. If a waiver of requirements or credit is granted, the score on 
the examination used will be recorded on the student's record in lieu of a letter 
grade. An administrative fee will be assessed for each course so recorded. (See the 
section on Special Fees.) 

Listed below are the Millsaps courses for which credit is given for Advanced 
Placement courses taken in high school and the score required in order to earn that

propriate department chairman or the dean of the college. 


All persons not in residence at Millsaps during the preceding regular semester 
must apply to the Admissions Committee and be accepted prior to registration for 
the fall and spring semesters. 

A prospective student should apply for admission well in advance of the date on 
which (s)he wishes to enter, particularly if housing accommodations on the campus 

are desired. The Admissions Committee acts on applications for both the spring and 
fall semesters as credentials are completed. 

In applying for admission a prospective student should follow this procedure: 

1 . Submit a completed application for admission form with the application fee to 
the director of admissions. The fee is not refunded to a student unless the ap- 
plication is not approved. 

2. Request the high school principal or college registrar to send an official 
transcript directly to the director of admissions. 

(a) Transfers must include a transcript from every college or university attend- 

(b) If the prospective student is enrolled in school at the time (s)he applies for 
admission, (s)he should have a transcript sent showing credits up to that 
time. A supplementary transcript will be required after admission. 

3. Freshman applicants must submit results of either the American College Test 
(A.C.T.) or Scholastic Aptitude Test (S.A.T.). 


Counseling services are designed to help students accomplish maximum suc- 
cess in their academic work. Many members of the college community participate in 
counseling, and specialists are used as referral resources when problems require 
specialized therapy. 

Pre-Registratlon Counseling: The college provides counseling services to any 
prospective student who wants to explore vocational and educational objectives 
before entering classes in the fall. Students who are admitted are urged to take ad- 
vantage of this service. 

Orientation: Freshmen and transfer students are expected to be on campus on 
dates specified in the college calendar. Orientation is planned and carried out 
cooperatively by students and faculty to help entering students prepare for campus 

Faculty Advisors: New students are assigned to faculty members who serve as 
academic advisors. When a student chooses the major field, a professor in that field 
becomes the advisor. 

Personal Counseling: The Office of Student Affairs counsels students on voca- 
tional choices, selection of fields of study, study and reading skills, emotional ad- 
justments and related matters. 

Testing: An individual testing service is available to help with self-analysis and 
planning in terms of interests. 


The dean and associate dean of student affairs coordinate housing in coopera- 
tion with residence hall directors and resident assistants. Men who are active 
members of a fraternity may live in its house after their freshman year. 

All freshman men and women, unless they are married or live with members of 
their immediate families in Jackson or vicinity, are required to reside on campus in 
college residence halls and to dine on campus, also. Exceptions to this policy are 
unusual and must be authorized through the Office of the Dean of Student Affairs. 

Residence hall rooms are designed to house two students each. Students 
wishing to room together should make every effort to pay room deposits at the same 
time and to specify their desire to room together. Single rooms are limited and those 
desiring a single room should pay their room reservation fees as early as possible. 
Assignments are made in the order in which this fee or completed applications are 
received, whichever is later. Room preferences are honored unless the rooms are 
already taken by students who are eligible for them. Room rent cannot be refunded 
after the semester begins. 

Residence halls open at 10 a.m. on the day preceding each term and close at 
10 a.m. on the day following the last scheduled examination of each term. During 
Thanksgiving and spring holidays, the residence halls will close at 3 p.m. on the last 


day of scheduled classes and reopen at noon on the day preceding the resumption 
of classes. Students are not housed in the residence halls during Thanksgiving, 
Christmas, or spring holidays. 


Millsaps provides medical services to its students who are suffering from minor 
illnesses. The services are limited to students living in Millsaps residence halls and 
fraternity houses. Medical services through the college physician are available 
through the nurse on duty or, in her absence, one of the residence hall directors or 
the Office of Student Affairs. 

The college pays for the initial visit to the college physician for each illness. 


The college has a Career Planning and Placement Office designed to assist 
students in the career-planning process. The process begins with the analysis of 
one's interests, values, abilities, and personality traits in relationship to occupational 
options. The process concludes with the exploration of careers and preparation for 
the job search or graduate education opportunities. 

Career planning usually begins in the freshman year and Is pursued, via testing, 
advising, internships, counseling, seminars and on-campus interviews, through the 
senior year. 

Placement files, containing credentials, are maintained for interested students 
and alumni. 


In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, 
Millsaps College students have the right to review, inspect, and challenge the ac- 
curacy of information kept in a cumulative file by the institution. It also insures that 
records cannot be released without the written consent of the student except in the 
following situations: 

(a) to school officials and faculty who have a legitimate educational interest, 
such as a faculty advisor; 

(b) where the information is classified as "directory information." The following 
categories of information have been designated by the Millsaps College as 
directory information: name, address, telephone listing, date and place of 
birth, major field of study, participation in officially recognized activities and 
sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, dates of atten- 
dance, degrees and awards received, the most recent previous educational 
institution attended by the student, and information needed for honors and 
awards. If you do not wish such information released without your consent 
you should notify the Office of Records in writing prior to the end of the first 
day of classes. 

For a full statement of policy concerning the confidentiality of student records, 
consult the staff of the Office of Records or the Office of Student Affairs. 


Gateway provides services for Millsaps' adult learners, including academic ad- 
vising, personal and career counseling, infant and pre-school child care, orientation, 
and monthly meetings. These services are available to non-traditional students 
whether or not they are degree candidates. 


The Education Department offers a laboratory school for children ages two- 
five. The school is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-noon. In addition, there 
is a drop-in service for infants and children of Millsaps students. The hours for this 
service are 7:45 a.m.-5 p.m. 

The location of the Children's Center is 604 Webster St.

Student life 


Religious life at Millsaps centers around the churches of the city of Jackson and 
the religious life program coordinated through the cannpus ministry team. Churches 
provide communities of faith for students, faculty, and staff. The campus religious 
life program works to enhance the spiritual growth of members of the community. 
The emphasis is on the development of values and insights related to one's religious 
life that are informed by a keen awareness of the world and are shaped by struggling 
with fundamental questions about the nature of belief and of a religious lifestyle. 

To meet these goals, the campus ministry program at Millsaps utilizes as fully 
as possible the experiences of students in the classroom and in their relationships to 
their peers, both being situations which raise basic questions about intellectual and 
spiritual growth and about the link between faith and life. Thus, programs concerning 
the relationship of faith to issues raised in the classroom are an integral part of the 
religious life program of the college. Further, such established programs as the Stu- 
dent Symposium and the Friday Forum Series are utilized to provide religious 
perspectives on critical issues. 

Campus ministry at Millsaps is coordinated through the campus ministry team, 
a group of approximately 35 to 40 students, faculty, and staff persons who plan for 
the college community. The team has several emphases: human rights issues, the 
Religious Perspectives Series, the Voluntary Service Program, an Outdoors Events 
Program, and the Special Ministries Fund Program. 

In addition, the Preparation for Ministry Program, designed for persons prepar- 
ing for professional Christian vocations, attempts to create programs and field work 
appropriate to the needs of members. The Chapel Series is an occasional program 
of educational and worship experiences. 

The campus ministry program at Millsaps is ecumenical. St Peter's Catholic 
Cathedral provides a staff person to the Millsaps campus who works with Catholic 
students and in the larger life of the college. Intervarsity Christian Fellowship 
regularly works with a group of students and the Episcopal Diocese coordinates the 
weekly celebration of the Eucharist. All programming is ecumenical in terms of par- 
ticipation and resource people. 

The Office of the Chaplain serves as a liaison with churches, the United 
Methodist conferences, and other groups and agencies in the city and state. The 
chaplain works with students who serve internships with the Methodist Building staff, 
provides resources for events on and off campus related to various campus ministry 
concerns and actively participates in the work of the United Methodist conferences 
to which the college relates. 


The Public Events Committee receives funds from the student government to 
sponsor programs of general interest to the campus and community. Its major activi- 
ty is the Friday Forum Series — a continuing slate of speakers presented each Friday 
during the academic year. The objective of the series is to provide information and 
stimulate interest in current issues, to explore historical events and to present differ- 
ing perspectives on controversial subjects. Faculty members, local authorities and 
national experts are invited to present their thoughts on a variety of literary, cultural, 
scientific, political, religious and historical topics. 

In addition to the Forum Series, the Public Events Committee sponsors special 
events throughout the academic year. It provides funds to student organizations and 
academic departments interested in organizing programs open to the entire cam- 
pus. These include films, guest speakers and music recitals. 

All of these activities have to do with the true aim of liberal education: the libera- 
tion of the mind to grasp the world of nature and of human experience and action in 
all its richness and complexity, and to respond with awareness, sensitivity, concern, 
and mature judgment. 



The athletic policy of Millsaps College is based on the premise that athletics ex- 
ist for the benefit of the students and not primarily to enhance the prestige and 
publicity of the college. 

Competitive sports conducted in an atmosphere of good sportsmanship and 
fair play can make a significant contribution to the complete physical, emotional, 
moral, and mental development of the well-rounded individual. They are thus an in- 
tegral part of a program of liberal education. An attempt is made to provide a sports- 
for-all program and to encourage as many students as possible to participate. 


The program for men includes football, basketball, baseball, tennis, and soccer. 
The women's program includes basketball and tennis. 

The programs are conducted on guidelines established by the National Col- 
legiate Athletic Association and the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for 
Women of which Millsaps College is a member. 

Those who participate in intercollegiate athletics are required to observe and 
maintain the same academic standards as other students. 


The program for men provides competition among campus organizations in 
basketball, volleyball, Softball, tennis, and soccer. The program for women includes 
touch football, volleyball, tennis, basketball, and Softball. 


The Purple and White is the official student newspaper of the college, and its 
staff is composed of individuals interested in campus journalism. The P&W 
endeavors to provide coverage of all Millsaps events, as well as to serve as a forum 
for discussion and exploration of ideas. 

Now in its seventy-fifth year, the Bobashela is the annual student publication of 
Millsaps College, attempting to give a comprehensive view of campus life. 
Bobashela is an Indian name for good friend. 

Through Stylus, the college literary magazine, students interested in creative 
writing are given an opportunity to see their work in print. The publication comes out 
twice each year and contains the best poetry, short stories, and essays submitted by 
Millsaps students. 

The Millsaps Singers 

Open by audition to all students, the Singers represent Millsaps in public perfor- 
mances, campus programs, annual tours throughout the state, and to other areas of 
our United States. In recent years the choir has traveled to Colorado; to Washington, 
D.C.; to Atlanta, to record for the National Protestant Hour; and to Mexico. The choir 
has sung with the Memphis Symphony Orchestra three times, the Jackson Sym- 
phony many times, the Chicago Chamber Orchestra, and the New Orleans Philhar- 
monic. Membership earns two semester hours of activity credit for the year's work. 

The Millsaps Players 

The Millsaps Players present four three-act plays each year. Major productions 
of recent years include The Sea Gull, The Three-penny Opera, My Fair Lady, 
Julius Caesar, Camelot, Romeo and Juliet, Medea, Becket, Androcles and the 
Lion, Camino Real, Macbeth, Luther, The Rivals, South Pacific, Crown 
Matrimonial, The Day After the Fair, and Damn Yankees. 



Student Association 

All regularly enrolled students of Millsaps are members of the Student Associa- 
tion. Those taking at least 12 hours or part-time students who pay the Student 
Association fee have full power of voting. The Millsaps Student Association is 
governed by the Student Senate, the Student Judicial Council, and the Student Ex- 
ecutive Board. The Student Senate is composed of not more than 20 voting 
members elected from the Millsaps Student Association. Representatives are 
chosen by petition, with no more than 40 signatures required for any petition. (The 
Election Committee decides each year how many signatures will be required.) 
Members of the Student Senate are chosen by the third Tuesday in September and 
serve their constituency the length of the academic year. 

Student Executive Board (S.E.B.) Officers of the Student Senate are elected at 
large from the Millsaps Student Association. The officers are president, first vice- 
president, second vice-president, secretary, and treasurer. The officers serve a term 
beginning and ending on February 1. 

Regular student Senate meetings are held during the first week of each month, 
with special meetings called by the secretary at the request of 1 ) the president of the 
Senate, 2) the Senate, 3) seven members of the Senate, 4) the president of the col- 

The duties and functions of the Student Senate according to the Constitution 
are "to exercise legislative and executive power over those non-academic areas of 
collegiate activity that are in most instances the responsibility of students", in- 
cluding 1) the apportionment of funds collected by the college as Student Associa- 
tion fees; 2) the granting or revoking of charters to use campus facilities and funds 
by student organizations; 3) formulating rules of social and dormitory conduct; 4) the 
conduction of Student Association elections; 5) traditional class responsibilities; 6) 
the intramural program. 

The Judicial Council is composed of three ex-officio advisors and seven aph 
pointed members. The dean of the college, the dean of student affairs, and the 
associate dean of student affairs act in a non-voting advisory function. Seven voting 
student members in addition to three alternate members are nominated by a special 
committee of the Student Senate and are confirmed by the Student Senate, with a 
view to appropriate balance in regard to race, sex, and place of residence. 

No member of the Student Senate may be a voting member of the Judicial 
Council. Council members serve a term of one year. They are appointed in the 
spring. The Millsaps Judicial Council has jurisdiction generally over all student 
disciplinary cases except when an individual's eligibility to continue as a student is 
put into question because of academic or medical difficulties. Its decisions are ap- 
pealable to the president of the college.

may transfer back the final 26 hours of work (in this case, however, residence will be 
required at Millsaps for the second semester of the junior year and the first semester 
of the senior year). 

8. English Proficiency Requirement: 

Before receiving a bachelor's degree each student is required to demonstrate 
proficiency in English composition and usage by passing an examination given by 
the English Department. It consists of a 500-word essay written extempore within 
two and one-half hours on a subject selected from a list furnished at the examina- 
tion. Students who made grades of A or B on English 101-102, 103-104, or 105 at 
Millsaps are exempted from this examination. 

The examination is given by the English Department twice in the academic 
year. The regular administration is on the second Thursday in November from 4 to 
6:30 p.m. A special administration of the examination is given on the second Thurs- 
day in March from 4 to 6:30 p.m. to seniors who hope to graduate but who have not 
passed the Junior English Proficiency Examination. Seniors who fail the special ex- 
amination and who think they have compelling cause may petition the dean of the 
college for an extraordinary administration of the examination in the summer ses- 
sion following. If the dean grants the petition, he may also stipulate that the student 
must audit English 101-102 during the summer session. 

All rising juniors, transfer students at the junior and senior levels, and seniors 
who failed the examination in their junior year must be present for the November ad- 
ministration of the proficiency examination. 

Each student who fails the examination in November is assigned to a member 
of the English Department for remedial instruction.

In addition to taking the prescribed work for the degree, the student must major 
in one of the following areas: accounting, art, business administration, biology, 
chemistry, church music, economics, education, English, French, geology, German, 
history, mathematics, music, philosophy, physics, political science, psychology, 
religion, sociology, Spanish, and theatre. 

Specific requirements for the major can be found under the appropriate depart- 
ment of instruction. Students may be permitted to major in a subject only after 
careful consideration and with the consent of the chairman of the department. 

A major for each student must be approved by one of the department chairmen 
not later than the beginning of the junior year. The student must complete the proper 
forms in the Office of Records. 

No junior or senior registration will be accepted as complete by the Office of 
Records without the signed approval of the major professor. 

A student may have more than one major by completing the requirements in the 
departments involved. 

10. IVIinors: 

While there is no requirement that students complete a minor as a part of their 
degree, they may elect a minor in those departments which offer one. 

Ordinarily a student must have a minimum of 12 hours in a department beyond 
what is used to meet degree requirements in order to qualify for a minor. Specific re- 
quirements for a particular minor can be found under the appropriate department of 


11. Comprehensive Examinations: 

Before receiving a bachelor's degree the student must pass a satisfactory com- 
prehensive examination in the major field of study. This examination is given in the 
senior year and is intended to cover subject matter greater in scope than a single 
course or series of courses. The purpose of the comprehensive examination is to 
coordinate the class work with independent reading and thinking in such a way as to 
relate the knowledge acquired and give the student a general understanding of the 
field which could not be acquired from individual courses. 

The comprehensive examination requires at least three hours and is part writ- 
ten and part oral, the division of time between the two to be at the discretion of the 
members of the department concerned. The oral examination will be conducted by a 
committee composed of members of the department, and, if desired by the depart- 
ment, one or more members of the faculty from other departments or other qualified 

A student may take the comprehensive examination only if the courses in which 
(s)he has credit and in which (s)he is currently enrolled are those which fulfill the re- 
quirements in the major department. (S)he may take the examination in the spring 
semester if (s)he will be within 18 hours of graduation by the end of that semester. 
The examination will be given in December or January for students who meet the 
other requirements and who will not be in residence at Millsaps during the spring 

The time of the comprehensive examination given in the spring semester is 
about mid-April of each year. Comprehensive examinations will not be given during 
the summer except by permission of the dean. Those who fail a comprehensive ex- 
amination may have an opportunity to take another examination after the lapse of 
two months. Additional examinations may be taken at the discretion of the chairman 
of the student's major department with the consent of the dean of the college. 

12. Quality Index Required: 

A minimum of 240 quality points is required for the B.A., B.S., B.B.A., and B.S. 
Ed degrees: 248 for the B.M. degree. An over-all quality point index of 2.00 is re- 
quired of all students. Transfer students must have at least a quality point index of 
2.00 on their Millsaps work. The index is always calculated on the total number of 
academic hours attempted; however, an exception to the rule of hours attempted is 
allowed in instances where courses are repeated at Millsaps. (See page 51). 

1 3. Application for a Degree: 

Each student who is a candidate for a degree is required to submit a written ap- 
plication for the degree by November 1 of the academic year of graduation. This 
date will apply also to students who plan to complete their work in the summer ses- 
sion. Forms for degree applications are to be secured and filed in the Office of 

14. Requirements for a Second Degree: 

In order to earn a second degree from Millsaps College a student must have 
thirty additional semester hours of work beyond the semester hours required for the 
first degree and these additional hours must include all of the requirements for both 
the second degree and the second major. 

15. Required Sequence of Courses for All Regular Students: 

Freshmen students shall enroll in the appropriate course in English composi- 
tion (unless exempt by examination) and in at least one other prescribed course as 
listed in the Core Curriculum or the Additional Degree Requirements. 

Sophomore students shall enroll in at least two prescribed courses as listed in 
the Core Curriculum or the Additional Degree Requirements. 

Enrollment in the required language courses will begin not later than the first 
semester of the junior year. It is recommended that language be started in the 
freshman or sophomore year. Those freshmen who, by virtue of previous study, plan 
to satisfy the language requirement taking courses at the intermediate level only, are 
strongly advised to begin such courses in the freshman year while their experience 
in the language chosen is recent. 



It is the responsibility of the pre-medical and pre-dental students to consult the 
catalogs of the schools to which they wish to apply for their specific requirennents. 
The following courses are required by many medical and dental schools. 

Biology 121-122 8 hours Mathematics 115-116 8 hours 

Chemistry 1 21 -1 23, 1 22-1 24 . 8 hours Physics 1 1 1 -1 1 2 or 1 31 -1 32 in addition 

Chemistry 231-233, 232-234.10 hours to 151-152 8 hours 

English 101-102 6 hours 

The student is urged to consult with a member of the Pre-medical Advisory 
Committee, (Al Berry, George Beardsley, Robert Kahn, James McKeown and Ed- 
mund Venator), in designing a program that will fit particular needs, background, and 

Millsaps College and many medical and dental schools strongly recommend 
that the student obtain a baccalaureate degree in an area of interest. This catalog 
should be consulted elsewhere for the exact major and degree requirements. 
Millsaps and most medical and dental schools also strongly recommend that the stu- 
dent develop a sound background in the humanities and social sciences. 

Some medical and dental schools will not accept credit in laboratory science 
courses obtained by C.L.E.P. or advanced placement tests. If the student plans to 
obtain such credit, he should first consult the medical or dental schools in which he 
has an interest to be certain that the school will accept such credit. 

The student should remember that the requirements listed in a medical or den- 
tal school catalog are minimal but that (s)he should obtain maximum preparation. In 
general, the student who is weak in some science, as shown by performance in in- 
troductory college courses, is urged to take further work in that science to prepare 
adequately. The student should also utilize limited time in taking courses that will not 
be available during professional training. The following courses are recommended 
as electives by many medical and dental schools. 

Biology (251, 301, 381, 383, 391 or 315) 

Chemistry (251-253, 264-266 or 363-365, 364-366) 

English (201-202 or 203-204) 

Economics and Business Administration 

Foreign Language (reading knowledge) 

History (101-102) 

Mathematics (223-224 or 225-226) 


Physics (301 , 306, 31 1 , 31 5. or 31 6) 



The Heritage Program gives the student a more flexible schedule and time to 
take additional courses of interest and need. 


A program for students planning for or interested in exploring a form of 
professional Christian ministry 

Millsaps College has enjoyed a tradition of close involvement with students 
from all denominations and faiths — particularly from The United Methodist 
Church — whose vocational goal or interest was a form of professional Christian 
ministry. The Preparation for Ministry Program is designed to offer a wide variety of 
experiences for persons who have decided on or would like to explore some form of 
Christian ministry as a personal vocation. The specific purposes of the program are 
as follows: 

a. To encourage personal growth in relation to self and other persons. 

b. To explore meanings and forms of ministry and to encourage openness to 
the many ways that the Christian Gospel speaks to human beings and their 


c. To keep students closely in touch with the resources and personnel of their 
denomination or faith, and to serve as a liaison with key adnninistrative per- 
sons of these bodies. 

d. To support students who wish to explore some form of professional ministry 
as a possibility for themselves. 

e. To assist students in developing a vision for their own ministry. 

f. To involve students in various types of competency training relevant to pro- 
fessional ministry. 

g. To provide a supportive, encouraging community for students planning for 
or interested in professional ministry. 

The Preparation for Ministry Program provides a basic link between the college 
and the conference/diocese/presbytery or other structure to which a student is 
responsible. In the case of United Methodists, the program is a supplement to the 
candidacy program. This program is also a clearinghouse for student employment in 
various capacities in congregations or church agencies. Participation by United 
Methodist students is obligatory for receiving the ministerial grant. 

The following is the format for the program on a four-year basis: 

First Year: Exploration of personal motivations for professional ministry through 
a variety of personal interviews, group sessions and programs; building relationships 
with other participants; exploring meanings and forms of ministry through inter- 
views, programs and field trips. 

Second Year: Personal growth experiences through two weekend personal 
growth seminars (one each semester) focused on self-development, assessment of 
style of working with people and interpersonal relations, with continuing emphasis 
on the development of one's personal vision of ministry, and with optional personal 
growth experiences growing out of these seminars; experiences designed to expose 
students to working situations (church school classes, youth ministry programs, 
etc.); training in knowledge and skills for particular tasks, with options according to 
previous experiences and interests, in areas such as education, music, youth 
ministry, group dynamics, planning process, and other areas to be designated as the 
need arises. 

Third Year: Internships to be developed in consultation with the student in order 
to fit his or her interest. (Internships will carry academic credit in the Department of 
Religion and will include careful goal-setting, supervision and reflection); consulta- 
tions as preparation for seminary choice and enrollment. 

Fourth Year: Further skill training; seminar based on personal growth, need 
assessment and goal setting. 

Special arrangements will be made for persons who transfer in after the first or 
second years of their college work and for persons with special circumstances. 

The coordinator for the Preparation of Ministry Program will be the chaplain to 
the college, assisted by the Department of Religion and two pre-seminary students. 
These persons will work with an advisory committee which will include the deans of 
students, the academic dean, the director of church relations, representatives of the 
supervising pastors of the two United Methodist conferences in Mississippi, 
representatives of denominations or faiths other than United Methodist, chairper- 
sons of the Boards of Ordained Ministry, and other students who are interested in or 
planning for some form of professional Christian ministry. All incoming students who 
will receive the ministerial grant or who would like to explore Christian ministry as a 
personal vocation may secure a flyer and enroll in the program in the Department of 
Religion or the Office of the Chaplain. 


No particular major or sequence of courses is necessary for students planning 
to go to law school; there is no ideal pre-law program for all students. To do well in 
the study of law, a student should possess: 

(a) ability to communicate effectively and precisely 

(b) critical understanding of the human institutions with which the law deals 

(c) creative power in thinking. 


Different students nnay obtain the desired training in these three areas from different 
courses. Therefore, students should consult with their faculty or nnajor advisers and 
with the pre-law adviser in designing a program of courses that will best fit particular 
needs, background, and interests. The student with a pre-law interest should consult 
the pre-law adviser, John Quincy Adams, from time to time. 


Students who wish to prepare for a professional career in social work should 
plan a broad liberal arts program with a major in one of the social sciences. Introduc- 
tory courses in sociology, psychology, and social work are essential. Other courses 
which are strongly recommended include Social Problems, Theories of 
Personality,and Social Psychology. Internships can provide valuable practical ex- 
perience with community social welfare agencies. Students are urged to consult 
with their faculty advisers to plan a schedule.

Millsaps College offers a three-year program for those who plan to enter 
schools of medical technology. This college work includes not only the necessary 
science and mathematics courses, but also courses in history, fine arts, sociology, 
composition, literature, and other subjects which insure a liberal arts experience for 
premedical technology students. 

Millsaps College maintains a formal affiliation with several schools of medical 
technology which are approved by the Council on Medical Education and Hospitals 
of the American Medical Association. This is the only qualifying board recognized by 
the American Medical Association, the American Society of Clinical Pathologists, the 
American College of Surgeons, the American Hospital Association, and other 
authoritative medical groups. 

The medical technology student is expected to spend the first three years at 
Millsaps College (or transfer here from another recognized college, with at least the 
third year spent in residence here) and the senior year at the approved hospital. The 
student must complete the general requirements for the B.S. degree with a major in 

Students enrolled in affiliated schools of medical technology may transfer back 
the final 26 hours of work. The courses required for registry are accepted as com- 


pleting the requirements of 124 semester hours for graduation. The B.S. degree is 
awarded at the first commencement exercise following the completion of the 
medical technology training. 

Medical technology students are encouraged to secure the B.S. or B.A. degree 
before entering an approved school of medical technology. 


Students may obtain baccalaureate degree training in the Medical Record 
Librarian Program at Millsaps College and at an approved institution. The correlated 
program of instruction covers each phase of medical record practice.

oral comprehensive examination. The B.S. degree is awarded at the first commence- 
ment following the completion of the medical record librarian training and passing 
for the registry examination. 

Medical record librarian students who wish to complete four years of college 
may secure the B.S. or B.A. degree before entering an approved school of medical 
record training. 


The Honors Program 

The Honors Program provides an opportunity for students of outstanding ability 
to pursue an advanced course of study which would ordinarily not be available. In 
the spring of their junior year honors students participate in an inter-disciplinary col- 
loquium which intensively examines a topic of broad interest. In the senior year, 
students carry out a research project on a subject of their choice. This thesis is 
presented before a panel of faculty members at the end of the senior year. Students 
successfully completing all phases of the Honors Program receive the designation 
"with honors" in their major subject at graduation. Students interested in par- 
ticipating in the Honors Program should consult with their advisers in the fall of their 
junior year. 

The Oak Ridge Science Semester 

Under this program, sponsored jointly by the Southern College University Union 
and by the Department of Energy, a Millsaps student may spend the spring semester 
of the junior or senior year studying and doing research at Oak Ridge National 
Laboratory, Oak Ridge, TN. A full semester's academic credit is normally earned. 
The student technically remains an enrollee of Millsaps College for the purpose of 
scholarships and loans, which are not affected by participation in the program. 

The Washington Semester 

"The Washington Semester" is a joint arrangement between The American 
University, Washington, D.C., Millsaps College, and other colleges and universities 
in the United States to extend the resources of the national capital to superior 
students in the field of the social sciences. The object is to provide a direct contact 
with the work of governmental departments and other national and international 
agencies that are located in Washington, thus acquainting the students with possible 
careers in public service and imparting a knowledge of government in action. 


Under this arrangement qualified students of demonstrated capacity from tlie 
participating colleges will spend a semester at the School of Government and Public 
Administration of The American University in Washington. They earn 16 hours of 
credit tov\/ard graduation in their home colleges. Eight hours are earned in a Con- 
ference Seminar, in which high-ranking leaders of politics and government meet with 
students. Four hours are earned in a research course which entails the writing of a 
paper by utilizing the sources available only at the nation's capital. And four hours 
are earned in an Internship, in which the student is placed in a government or public 
interest organization office. In Washington the program is coordinated by faculty 
members of The American University. 

Millsaps has a guaranteed quota of two students for each spring semester, 
although students may petition for entry in the fall. Second semester sophomores, 
juniors, or seniors are eligible. 

The student technically remains an enrollee of Millsaps College for the purpose 
of scholarships and loans, which are thus not diminished by participation in the pro- 

The United Nations Semester 

A cooperative program with Drew University in Madison, NJ, enables Millsaps 
political science majors to spend a semester making a first-hand study of the work of 
the United Nations. Participants may earn 15 hours of credit toward graduation. 
Three hours of credit are earned in a Conference Seminar, which meets two days of 
each week in the United Nations Plaza. Members of the Secretariat, delegates, and 
special agency representatives often lead discussions in a planned program of 
studies. Students also earn three hours of credit by engaging in an individual 
research project on some phase of the United Nations. The remaining hours of 
credit are electives taken from the regular course offerings of Drew's liberal arts col- 

The student technically remains an enrollee of Millsaps College for the purpose 
of scholarships and loans, which are thus not diminished by participation in the pro- 

The London Semester 

Another cooperative program with Drew University gives upperclass political 
science majors the opportunity to study in London, England, for a semester. Fifteen 
hours of credit are earned in the social sciences, with primary emphasis on political 
science. The faculty, including a resident director from Drew, includes members of 
the faculty of the London School of Economics and Political Science, Oxford Univer- 
sity, Leeds University, and other outstanding schools. Students live in a residential 
hotel in the heart of London. Provision is made for an optional pre-fall or post-spring 
tour of the continent at a modest cost. 

The student technically remains an enrollee of Millsaps College for the purpose 
of scholarships and loans, which are thus not affected by participation in the pro- 

British Studies at Oxford 

Millsaps College in cooperation with seven other colleges in the Southern Col- 
lege and University Union sponsors a six-week intensive summer program at Oxford 
University in England. It enables students to study a particular period of British 
history in a thoroughly integrated way and in a mileau which affords an incom- 
parable opportunity to benefit from the experience. A similar summer program bas- 
ed in London and focusing upon challenges of the multinational economy was 
recently instituted also under the sponsorship of S.C.U.U. Interested students should 
inquire with the dean of the college in the fall preceding the summer in which they 
are considering attending either of these programs. 


Other Study Abroad Programs 

Millsaps College maintains cooperative arrangements with the Junior Year 
Abroad program at the Institute for American Universities at Aix-en-Provence in 
France. Other study abroad programs are available in most countries of Western 
Europe as well as in Latin America. Students interested in receiving college credit 
for such study may receive information concerning these programs from the chair- 
man of the appropriate department or from the dean of the college. 

Legislative Intern Program 

When the Mississippi Legislature is in session, selected political science 
students may participate in an internship program which permits them to observe 
the state law-making process. Students serve as aides to legislators and legislative 
committees, performing a variety of tasks such as research, writing, and marking up 
bills. Students also take part in a seminar with other interns to examine the 
legislative process. See Political Science 452. 

Public Administration Internship 

With the cooperation of city, state and federal agencies, students who have had 
the introductory public administration course may be placed in middle management 
level positions. 

School Of Management Intern Programs 

Students have the opportunity of obtaining specialized training and practical ex- 
perience through an established Internship Program. The program involves promi- 
nent regional and national business organizations and an agency of the federal 
government. The student's training is conducted and supervised by competent 
management personnel according to a predetermined agenda of activities. Evalua- 
tion of the student's participation and progress provides the basis for granting ap- 
propriate academic credit. See offerings 451-452 in the School of Management. 

Small Business Institute 

Students apply theory to practice by consulting small business management in 
the area. The program is sponsored by the Small Business Administration (S.B.A.), 
an agency of the federal government. Students should register for Administration 

IVIillsaps-Gulf Coast Research Laboratory Cooperative Program 

Students at Millsaps College, especially those in the natural sciences, are per- 
mitted to enroll for one or more of the following courses at the Gulf Coast Research 
Laboratory as a part of their regular program of studies. The laboratory is situated 
near Ocean Springs, 180 miles south of Jackson. Summer work at the laboratory

Master of Business Administration 

The evening Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) program has been 
established at Millsaps in response to requests from the business and non-profit 
communities in the Jacl<son area. Although designed primarily to meet the needs of 
part-time students, sufficient coursework is offered every semester to allov^/ full-time 
graduate students some flexibility in planning a curriculum of study. A typical class 
includes men and women with a broad range of ages, and with backgrounds from 
engineering, the physical and social sciences, the arts and the humanities as well as 
from business. The following foundation courses may be taken at the undergraduate 
level: Accounting, 281-282; Business Administration, 220, 275, 321, 333, 334, 362; 
Composition, 110 and Economics, 201-202. 



of the curriculum 


The grade in any class is determined by the combined class standing and a writ- 
ten examination. The examination is approximately one-third of the grade for the 

"A" represents superior work. 
"B" represents above the average achievement. 
"C" represents an average level of achievement. 
"D" represents a level of achievement in the regularly prescribed work of the class 

below the average in the same relationship as "B" is above the average. 
"E" represents a condition and is changed to a "D" if the grade in the other 

semester of the course is "C" or above, providing that the "E" precedes the 

higher grade on the student's record. 
"F" represents failure to do the regularly prescribed work of the class. All marks of 

"D" and above are passing marks and "F" represents failure. 
"WP" indicates that the student has withdrawn from the course while passing, and 

"WF" means withdrawal while failing. 
"I" indicates that the work is incomplete and is changed to "F" if the work is not 

completed by the end of the following semester. 
"CR" represents passing work in a non-graded course taken for hourly credit (not 

computed in G.P.A.). 
"NC" represents no credit in a non-graded course taken for hourly credit (not 
computed in G.P.A.). 

Quality Points 

The completion of any academic course with a D shall entitle a student to one 
quality point for each semester hour; a grade of C for the semester shall entitle a stu- 
dent to two quality points for each semester hour; a grade of B for the semester shall 
entitle a student to three quality points for each semester hour, and a grade of A 
shall entitle a student to four quality points for each semester hour. A quality point in- 
dex is determined by dividing the total number of quality points by the number of 
academic hours taken. The change from a 3.00 to a 4.00 quality point index was 
made in 1968. 

Class Standing 

The following number of hours and quality points is required: 

For sophomore rating 24 hours; 24 quality points 

For junior rating 52 hours; 72 quality points 

For senior rating 90 hours; 1 44 quality points 

A student's classification for the entire year is his/her status at the beginning of 
the fall semester. 

Student Status 

Degree-seeking students taking 12 or more academic hours will be classified 
as full-time students. Students taking less than 12 academic hours may not repre- 
sent the college in extracurricular activities. 

Degree-seeking students taking fewer than 12 academic hours will be 
classified as part-time students. 

A special student is a mature person of ability and seriousness of purpose who 
enrolls for limited academic work and does not plan to seek a degree. The category 
of "special student" is not intended to include recent high school graduates. Special 
students observe the same regulations concerning attendance, examination and 
proficiency as regular students. 

Credit/No Credit Grade Option 

Some courses have been approved to be graded either by letter grade or by 
credit/no credit grading. The purpose of credit/no credit grading is to encourage 
students to take courses in areas they might not otherwise select. Credit/no credit 
grading requires full participation of the student in all class activities. Credit signifies 
work of passing quality or above. It will not carry quality points nor be included in the 
G.P.A. Students are reminded that (except for certain internship programs) courses 
graded by the credit/no credit option do not count toward fulfilling the 120 (124 for 


the B. M. degree) letter-graded hours requirement and cannot be used to fulfill core 
requirements or major requirements. 

When grade option is available, it will be incumbent upon the student to make 
the choice at the time of registration. Any change in grading option must be made 
within the drop-add period. (Exception: Theatre activity may be added later with ap- 
propriate approval.) 

Repeat Courses 

A student may enroll in a course at Millsaps which has previously been taken. 
The highest grade earned in that course will be used in determining the cumulative 
quality point average. However, all grades reported for the course remain a part of 
the permanent record. This policy applies only to courses originally taken at Millsaps 
during or after spring semester 1973 and to courses originally taken at other institu- 
tions during or after fall semester 1980. 

Graduation With Distinction 

A student whose quality point index is 3.2 for the entire course shall be 
graduated Cum Laude; one whose quality point index is 3.6 and who has a rating of 
excellent on the comprehensive examination shall be graduated Magna Cum Laude; 
and one whose quality point index is 3.9 and who has a rating of excellent on the 
comprehensive examination shall be graduated Summa Cum Laude. 

To be eligible for graduation Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude or Summa Cum 
Laude, a student must have passed at least 60 academic semester hours in Millsaps 
College. Distinction or special distinction may be refused a student who, in the judg- 
ment of the faculty, has forfeited the right. 

In determining eligibility for distinction or special distinction for students who 
have not done all their college work at Millsaps, the quality points earned on the 
basis of grades made at other institutions will be considered, but the student will be 
considered eligible only if (s)he has the required index both on the work done at 
Millsaps and on college courses as a whole. 

Graduation With Honors 

A full-time student with junior standing who has an over-all quality point index of 
3.0 may apply to the department chairman for permission to declare as a candidate 
for honors. Admission requires acceptance by the chairman and approval by the 
Honors Council. Entrance into the Honors Program becomes effective in the spring 
semester of the junior year. 

Honors Program 

The Honors Program extends over three semesters. A student admitted will in 
the second semester of the junior year enroll with the honors adviser in a directed 
study entitled Honors I (Colloquium). Enrollment in Honors II and III (Research) will 
ordinarily follow in the fall and spring semesters of the senior year. A letter grade will 
be given for each of these courses. The three semesters of honors work are intend- 
ed to culminate in an honors paper presented to the Honors Council and defended 
before an examining board. 

The first semester in the Honors Program consists of an Honors Colloquium de- 
signed to bring together for intellectual exchange all students in the Honors Pro- 
gram. The aim of the Honors Colloquium is the total involvement of good minds in the 
exchange of ideas and values centering around selected themes and areas of in- 
vestigation of mutual interest to all disciplines. The Honors Colloquium is required of 
all students in the Honors Program. 

A candidate who completes the honors work satisfactorily, who presents and 
defends the honors paper satisfactorily, who has a 3.0 over-all quality point index, 
and who has a 3.33 index in honors work will be graduated with Honors. A candidate 
who has a 3.6 over-all quality point index, who has a 4.0 index in honors work and 
who has presented a superior honors paper will be graduated with High Honors. 

A student may voluntarily withdraw the candidacy for honors at any time. 
Students enrolled in honors courses are, however, bound by the general college 
rules for dropping a course and for receiving course credit. Candidacy may be in- 


voluntarily terminated at any time upon the recommendation of the honors adviser 
and with the approval of the Honors Council. 

Dean's List 

Those meeting these requirements are on the Dean's List: 

1. Scholarship: 

(a) The student must carry not less than 12 academic hours during the 
semester on which the scholastic average is based. 

(b) The student must have a quality point average of 3.2 for that semester. 

(c) The student must have no mark lower than a C for that semester. 

2. Conduct: 

The student must be, in the judgment of the dean, a good citizen of the col- 
lege community. 

Hours Permitted 

Fifteen academic semester hours is considered the normal load per semester. 

No student may take more than 17 semester hours of academic work unless 
s(he) has a quality index of 2.5 on the last semester. No student may take more than 
1 9 semester hours unless (s)he has a quality point index of 3.00 on the last semester 
and obtains permission from the dean. No student may receive credit for more than 
21 hours in a semester under any circumstances. In order to be classified as a full- 
time student, one must take no fewer than 12 semester hours. 


Schedule Clianges 

A freshman may not enroll for more than eight hours of laboratory science 
courses in any one semester except upon the recommendation of the student's ad- 

No student can be registered for courses in another college while being enroll- 
ed at Millsaps without the written permission of the dean of the college or the 
associate dean of the college. 

A student cannot change classes, drop classes or take up new classes except 
by the consent of the faculty adviser. Courses dropped within the first two weeks of a 
semester do not appear on the student's record. Courses dropped after the first two 
weeks and no later than one week after the reporting date for mid-semester grades 
are recorded as W.P. (withdrawn passing) or W.F. (withdrawn failing). Courses drop- 
ped after this time are recorded as F. If a student drops a course without securing 
the required approvals, (s)he receives an F. 


A student desiring to withdraw within any term must obtain permission from the 
dean or associate dean of the college and file a withdrawal card. No refund will be 
considered unless this written notice is procured and presented to the Business Of- 

Refunds will be made only as outlined under Financial Regulations. 

A student who withdraws with permission after the first two weeks of a 
semester is recorded as W.P. (withdrawn passing) or W.F. (withdrawn failing) in each 
course. A student who withdraws without permission receives a grade of F in each 

Enforced withdrawal may result from habitual delinquency in class, or any other 
circumstance which prevents the student from fulfilling the purpose for which (s)he 
should have come to college. 

The college reserves the right to cancel the registration of any student. In such 
a case, the pro rata portion of tuition will be returned, except that students withdraw- 
ing under discipline forfeit the right to a refund. 

No student who withdraws is entitled to a grade report or to a transcript of 
credits until (s)he has settled accounts in the Business Office. 


Academic Suspension 

To remain in college a freshman must pass in the first semester six hours of 
academic work. After the first half-year a student must pass at least nine hours of 
academic work each semester to continue in college. Furthermore, the maximum 
number of semesters a student may be on academic probation without suspension 
is two. 

Students who are requested not to re-enter because of academic failure may 
petition in writing for re-admission, but such petition will not be granted unless con- 
vincing evidence is presented that the failure was due to unusual causes of a non- 
recurring nature and that the student will maintain a satisfactory record during the 
subsequent semester. However, such a student may attend the summer session at 
Millsaps without a petition. 


Academic Probation: 

Students who pass enough work to remain, but make in any semester a quality 
index of less than 1.5 will be placed on probation. Restricted attendance 
privileges apply for all courses in which students are enrolled. 
Students may be removed from probation by making a 2.00 quality index during 
a regular semester or during a summer session at Millsaps College in which the 
student is enrolled for at least 12 academic hours credit. A student is asked 
not to re-enroll at Millsaps College if (s)he is on academic probation more than 
two semesters. 

Disciplinary Probation: 

Students guilty of serious infractions of college regulations may be placed on 
disciplinary probation at the discretion or the appropriate dean or faculty 

Restricted attendance privileges may apply for such a student in all courses in 
which (s)he is enrolled. 

Class Attendance 

Irregular attendance indicates that the student may be having difficulties ad- 
justing to the course or to college. The primary responsibility for counseling students 
with respect to their absence rests with the faculty member; but, in the following cir- 
cumstances, the faculty member is expected to report in writing the student's un- 
satisfactory attendance record to the Office of Records. 

1 . For a freshman — whenever the total absences are equal to twice the 
number of class meetings per week. 

2. For any student — 

a. When (s)he has been absent three successive class meetings for 
reasons unknown to the instructor. 

b. Whenever a student's absence is such that (s)he is in danger of failing 
the course. 

This reporting of absences is for counseling purposes only, and has no effect on the 
student's grade. 

Individual faculty members decide the manner and extent to which absences 
alone will affect a student's grade. Each faculty member is expected to outline the 
policy in writing to each class at the beginning of each semester. This may extend to 
dismissal from the course with a grade of "F" for reasons solely of absence. 

Absences are excusable only by the individual faculty member, but an excused 
absence does not excuse the student from being responsible for the course work. 
Explanation for a student's absence provided by a parent, medical doctor, or a 
member of the faculty or administration may be helpful to the faculty member, but 
such explanations are not in themselves excuses. This is particularly important in 
the case of absences involving missed examinations, late assignments, laboratory 
sessions and similar scheduled commitments. Faculty members, however, may not 
excuse students from attendance on the two days preceding and the two days 
following vacation periods without the express permission of the dean. 


Each student is responsible for knowing general attendance policy of the col- 
lege and the particular policies operative in each class. Further details relating to at- 
tendance are in the student handbook. 

Permission to nnake up an exannination or alter the tinne for an examination may 
be granted only through the vice president and dean of the college. Any special ex- 
amination, if granted, must be held no later than the sixth week of the next regular 
semester. A $10 fee will be charged for such an examination, except at the discre- 
tion of the vice president and dean of the college in cases of serious illness at the 
time of the examination. This fee will become a part of the scholarship fund. 

A student who has been excluded from a course by recommendation of the in- 
structor may, if (s)he wishes, petition the vice president and dean of the college 
within one week for the privilege of a reinstatement examination. This examination, 
to be prepared and administered by the instructor, shall cover the work of the course 
up to that date. A $1 fee will be paid to the Business Office for this privilege, with the 
fee going to the scholarship fund. Re-entry shall depend upon the examination 
results. If a student does not petition for re-entry, of if the re-entry is denied, the 
grade shall be recorded as F. 

Each student is responsible for knowing general attendance policy of the col- 
lege and the particular policies operative in each class. Further details relating to at- 
tendance are in the student handbook. 


Students may elect to be exempt from final examinations in the semester in 
which they complete their comprehensive examinations, but only in those courses in 
which they have a C average or better. It shall be understood, however, that this ex- 
emption does not insure the student a final grade of C, since daily grades during the 
last two weeks shall count in the final average. Under no circumstances may a stu- 
dent be exempt from any examination in more than one term or semester. 

Students may be exempt from final examinations only in the semester in which 
they complete their comprehensive, scholastic requirements being met. 

Seniors may be allowed one special examination in any subject taken and failed 
in the senior year. Permission for such examination must be secured from the dean 
or associate dean of the college. 

Students may request exemption from other requirements by petition to the 
dean of the college. 

Student Behavior 

Millsaps students are expected to act with honesty and integrity in personal, 
social, and academic relationships, and with consideration and concern for the com- 
munity, its members, and its property. The Board of Trustees and the administration 
affirm the right of the individual to the privacy of his room. The use of intoxicating 
beverages is not a part of, nor does it contribute to, the total educational emphasis of 
Millsaps College. The use, possession, or distribution of intoxicants, narcotics, or 
dangerous drugs, such as marijuana and LSD, except as expressly allowed by law, is 
not permitted. The Board of Trustees does not approve of the use of alcoholic 
beverages on the Millsaps campus and does not permit the use of any alcoholic 
beverages in any public area of the campus. For the purpose of the statement, a 
public place is defined as any part of the campus which is not within the confines of 
the student's room. Gambling is not permitted on campus. 

A more comprehensive statement is contained in the student handbook. 
Specific regulations pertaining to academics, residence halls and other facets of 
campus life are available through the Student Affairs Office.

School of Management 

The Chair of Management 

The Dan White Chair of Economics 

Professors: JERRY D. WHITT, Ph.D., Dean 




SUE Y. WHITT, Ph.D., C.P.A. 
Associate Professors: CARL A. BROOKING, Ph.D. 


Assistant Professors: BETSY JANE CLARY, Ph.D. 

Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA). Accounting and business ad- 
nninistration nnajors must complete additional requirements for the Bachelor of 
Business Administration degree (B.B.A.). Economics majors must complete addi- 
tional requiremente for either a B.S. or B.A. degree. The requirements for a major in 
accounting or in business administration are in addition to courses which may be 
used to satisfy the minimum college requirements for all degrees and cannot be 
used to satisfy both areas. Majors must make a grade of C or better in all courses re- 
quired by the School of Management. 

At least 51 hours must be earned in courses offered by the School of Manage- 
ment and at least 51 hours must be earned outside the School of Management. 

Coursework at the 300-level or above may be taken only by students who have 
completed at least 60 semester hours. 

Students pursuing the B.B.A. degree are encouraged to add depth in a non- 
business area that a minor can provide. Minors which would be of particular value to 
students in the School of Management are available in computer studies, modern 
languages, English, chemistry, political science, psychology, and biology. 

Transfer Credit: Transfer students should normally expect to satisfy the 
statistics requirement (Administration 275) at Millsaps. The typical first six hours of 
accounting principles will normally satisfy the department's 281-282 requirement. 
The typical six hours of sophomore economics will normally satisfy the Economics 
201-202 requirement. Transfer students will be required to satisfactorily complete at 
least 1 8 hours of courses offered by the School of Management to meet the require- 
ment for the BBA degree and the major, regardless of the specific requirements 
satisfied by transfer hours. In some instances this may mean repeating certain 
transferred, upper-division courses. Students should not expect to transfer credit in 
courses numbered at the 300-level or above from a community college to Millsaps. 
Requirements for major in accounting: The program of study is adequate 
preparation for the C.P.A. and C.M.A. examinations. Accounting majors must com- 
plete the requirements for a B.B.A. degree in addition to requirements for the major. 
Accounting 281-282 and Economics 201-202 should not be taken before the 
sophomore year. Computer 100, Business Administration 275, and Accounting 272 
should be taken before the junior year. Accounting 381 , 382 and 391 and Business 
Administration 321 , 333, 334, and 362 should be taken in the junior year. Accounting 
392, 395 and 398 and Business Administration 221-222 and 399 should be taken in 
the senior year. 

Requirements for major in business administration: The requirements for the 
business administration major, in addition to the general requirements for the B.B.A. 
degree, are very flexible and afford students the opportunity to take advanced elec- 
tives which will provide a fountistion to enter several professional fields. A student 
may pursue areas of concentration in finance and in marketing. Alternately, a stu- 
dent may pursue a broad approach without any specific area of concentration. 


Administration majors should take Accounting 281-282, Economics 201-202, 
Computer 100, and Business Administration 220 and 275 before ttieir junior year. 
Business Administration 321 , 333, 334, 336, and 362 should be taken during the 
junior year. Area concentration courses, electives and Business Administration 399 
should be taken in the senior year. 

Requirements for a B.A. degree with a major in Economics: This economics 
major is required to take Business Administration 275, Economics 201 , 202, 303, 
304 and nine hours of economics electives. 

Requirements for a B.S. degree with a major in Economics: This economics 
major is required to take Mathematics 115-116, Business Administration 275, 
Economics 201 , 202, 303, 304 and nine hours of economics electives. To prepare for 
graduate studies in economics the student should include Mathematics 223-224 or 
225-226, 335 and 346. 

Requirements for a Minor in the School of Management: Students pursuing the 
B.B.A. degree may not minor in accounting or administration. Students pursuing any 
other undergraduate degree may elect a minor in either of these disciplines with 1 2 
hours beyond the degree requirements, including the following: for the accounting 
minor Accounting 281-282, Economics 201-202, and six additional hours of Accoun- 
ting; for the administration minor nine hours from Accounting 281-282 and 
Economics 201-202, Business Administration 333, and six additional hours of 
business administration. Students pursuing any undergraduate degree may minor in 
economics with Economics 201-202 and 12 additional hours of economics. 

Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) Degree is offered and the founda- 
tion coursework may be taken at the undergraduate level. Foundation courses in- 
clude: Accounting 281-282, Economics 201-202, Administration 220, 275, 321, 333,

Suggestions for non-majors: Economics 201 , 202, Accounting 281 , 282 and 
Business Administration 220 are good entry-level offerings. Other courses in the 
School are appropriate for electives, especially Economics 341 , Accounting 272, 
395 and Business Administration 321 and 333. Please note, however, that junior

Millsaps College admits students of any race, color, sex, national or ethnic 
origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or 
made available to students of the college. It does not discriminate on the basis of 
race, color, sex, national, or ethnic origin in administration of its educational 
policies, admissions policies, scholarships and loan programs, and athletic and 
other school administered programs. No handicapped person is, on the basis of 
the handicap, excluded from participation in, denied benefits of, or otherwise sub- 
jected to discrimination under any program, employment or activity at Millsaps 

The provisions of this bulletin are not to be regarded as an irrevocable con- 
tract between the student and the college. This bulletin has attempted to present 
information regarding admission requirements, courses and degree re- 
quirements, tuition fees, and the general rules and regulations of the college for 
the year 1982-83 in as accurate and up-to-date fashion as possible. This does 
not, however, preclude the possibility of changes taking place during the 
academic year. If such changes occur they will be publicized through normal 
channels and will be included in the bulletin of the following printing.
