The Purpose of Millsaps College 

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 community of learners 
where faculty and students together seek the truth that frees the minds of men. 

As an institution of the Methodist Church, Millsaps 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 aca- 
demic program in a Christian environment, afford a kind of discipline and influence 
which no other type of institution can offer. The college provides a congenial at- 
mosphere where persons of all faiths may study and work together for the de- 
velopment 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 per- 
spective, to enrich his personality, and to enable him to think and act intelligently 
amid the complexities of the modern world. The curriculum is designed to avoid 
premature specialization and to integrate the humanities, the social studies, and 
the natural sciences for their mutual enrichment. 

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 educa- 
tion for good citizenship. It offers, therefore, professional and pre-professional train- 
ing balanced by cultural and humane studies. In an environment 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 con- 
tinuing 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 maximum potential develop- 
ment. 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 respon- 
sibility to neighbor, state, and church.

Board of Trustees of Millsaps College, 1955-56,

for Prospective Students 

History of the College 

Millsaps College was founded in 1 890 by the Methodist Church as a "Christian col- 
lege 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 out- 
skirts 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 prepara- 
tory school), five instructors, and an endowment of $70,432. Fifty years later, the stu- 
dent 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 (1 91 0-1 91 2), Dr. Alexander Farrar Watkins (1 91 2-1 923), 
Dr. Davici 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. 

General Information 

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 designed 
to train students for responsible citizenship and well-balanced lives, Millsaps offers profes- 
sional and pre-professional training coupled with cultural and disciplinary studies. Stu- 
dents are selected on the basis of their ability to think, desire to learn, good moral 
character and intellectual maturity. The primary consideration for admission is the abili- 
ty to do academic work satisfactory to the college and beneficial to the student. 

Millsaps' 1 ,400-member student body represents about 35 states and several for- 
eign 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. Cul- 
tural advantages include: the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra, Ballet Mississippi, 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 Edu- 
cation of the United Methodist Church as one of its strongest institutions. 

The Millsaps-Wilson Library 

The Millsaps-Wilson Library has more than 240,000 volumes and 900 periodical 
subscriptions. It provides 390 seats in individual study carrels, tables and rooms as well 
as browsing and lounge areas. There is a collection of audio-visual materials and listen- 
ing facilities. Special collections are: the Lehman Engel Collection of books and record- 
ings; the Mississippi Methodist Archives; the Kellogg Collection of juvenile books and 
curriculum materials; the Paul Ramsey Collection in Applied Ethics; the Eudora Welty 
collection; U.S. Government Documents; the Millsaps Archives; and a rare book collec- 
tion. Online computer searches and CD-ROM indexes are among the electronic serv- 
ices offered. The library is a member of the Central Mississippi Library Council and the 
Southeastern Library Network. 

The Computing Center 

In today's increasingly complex and information-driven society, students need to 
understand the role of computing. Millsaps has developed outstanding computer 
resources to meet this need. From several terminal complexes on campus students have 

access to the Digital Equipment RSTS/E and VAX/VMS timesharing systems which are 
located in the Computing Center in the Academic Complex. Included is the new facility 
with color graphics terminals in the Olin Science Building. In addition, a word process- 
ing facility for student use is available. To meet the growing interest in use of personal 
computers, the College has established three personal computer laboratories: one in 
the Murrah Hall Annex, one in Murrah Hall, and one in Sullivan-Harrell Hall. 

Buildings and Grounds 

The 100-acre campus is valued at about $30 million. Chief administrative offices 
are in Whitworth Hall. Murrah Hall, built in 1914, was renovated in 1981 to house the 
Else School of Management. Sullivan-Harrell Hall, built in 1928 and renovated in 1963, 
houses the departments of Computer Studies, Geology, Mathematics, and Physics. The 
Olin Hall of Science, dedicated in 1988, houses the departments of Biology and 

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, class- 
rooms, and offices. In 1967, the stage was renovated into a modern theatre stage. 

The Academic Complex, completed in 1971 , includes a recital hall in which is lo- 
cated a 41 -rank Mohler organ. The complex houses Music, Art, Political Science, Com- 
puter Services, Business Office, Office of Records, Business Affairs and the Office of 
Adult Learning. It also contains sky-lit art studios, a student computer terminal room, 
a music laboratory and classrooms. 

The Physical Activities Center, dedicated in 1 974, has courts for basketball, tennis, 
badminton, and volleyball. Weight-training and physical therapy rooms are also included 
in this multi-purpose facility. An outdoor 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 book- 
store, 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. A new dormitory for 
junior and senior men and women opened in the fall of 1985. All are centrally cooled 
and heated. 

The James Observatory is an historical landmark located on the northwest corner 
of the campus.

department chairman or the Dean of the College. 

Applying for Admission 

Prospective students should apply for admission well in advance of the date on 
which they wish to enter, particularly if housing accommodations on the campus are 
desired. The Admissions Committee acts on applications for the fall semester on De- 
cember 1 , January 15, March 1 , April 1 and on a weekly basis thereafter pending vacan- 
cies in the class. Applications for the spring term are considered on a weekly basis. 

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 application 
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 attended. 

(b) A prospective student enrolled in school at the time of application for admis- 
sion should have a transcript sent showing credits up to that time. A sup- 
lementary transcript will be required after admission. 

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

Applicants to the Adult Degree Program should apply directly to the director of 
the Adult Degree Program. Applicants for the Master of Business Administration 
degree should apply directly to the director of the MBA Program. 

Orientation and Advisement 

Many members of the college community are involved on an ongoing basis with 
orienting new students to college life and advising students to help them accomplish 
maximum success in their academic work. 

ORIENTATION: Freshmen and transfer students are expected to be on campus on 
dates specified in the college calendar. It is a cooperative effort involving students, faculty, 
and staff designed to prepare students for college life at Millsaps. 
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. The faculty advisors provide students with advice on courses to 
take to reach their degree objectives and on other academic concerns. 

Counseling Services 

Counseling services are available to all students in the Guidance and Career Coun- 
seling Center. Students can receive counseling for a wide range of concerns. A coun- 
selor can assist in improving academic performance by helping a student develop study 
skills techniques such as time management, note-taking, problem-solving, and test-taking. 
Help is also available to students wishing to engage in self-exploration and goal-setting, 
to discuss relationships or other personal concerns, to develop better coping skills, to 
obtain information on other community resources, and to discuss other probelms or 
concerns. Referrals to professionals or treatment programs off campus will be made 
when it is believed to be appropriate. 


Career Planning and Placement 

Career planning begins in the freshman year with an emphasis on exploring both 
career fields and academic majors. Through interest testing, planning and consulta- 
tion, students can explore academic disciplines relevant to their interests and over time, 
establish realistic career directions, develop career strategies and set goals. 

Frequent contact with the career counselor is encouraged to ensure continued de- 
velopment and movement toward a satisfying career choice. Students are invited to 
utilize resources in the career library, to participate in off-campus internships and to take 
advantage of opportunities for part-time and summer employment as bases of ex- 
perience. These resources are available through the Guidance and Career Counseling 

Developing skills in resume writing, interviewing and job search strategies are em- 
phases for junior and senior students. Workshops on these topics are presented on 
a regular schedule and students are urged to come in for private conferences. Current 
listings of employment opportunities are available and on-campus interviews are sched- 
uled with representatives from graduate and professional schools, businesses, indus- 
tries and government agencies. 

Student Housing 

The dean and associate dean of student affairs coordinate housing in cooperation 
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 col- 
lege 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 should 
send the completed housing form and the college deposit as soon as possible. Assign- 
ments are made in the order in which the deposit and a completed application are 
received. Students wishing to room together should make every effort to pay the col- 
lege deposit at the same time and to specify their desire to room together. Room prefer- 
ences are honored unless the rooms are already taken by students who are eligible 
for them. Single rooms are normally not available. Room rent cannot be refunded after 
the semester begins. 

Assignments are made in the order in which this fee is received by the Business 
Office according to the following priorities: 

1 . Current residents who are returning and have paid the room deposit by the 
established deadline announced each spring. 

2. Freshman students who have paid the room deposit. 

3. New transfer students who have paid the room deposit. 

4. Current students who wish to return to college housing and who paid the room 
deposit on time. 

5. Current returning student residents who have not paid the room deposit on time. 
Current students who have become academically ineligible and who have not been 

readmitted on petition by June 1 will be refunded the room deposit. These students, 
if readmitted at a later date, will need to pay the room deposit and will be put on a wait- 
ing list for room assignments. 

A quiet wing option is offered for students who wish to live in an environment where 
more intensive study is possible twenty-four hours a day. 

Residence halls open at 9 a.m. on the day preceding each term and close at 12 
noon on the day following the last scheduled examination of each term. For Thanksgiving 
and spring holidays, the residence halls will close at 3 p.m. on the last day of sched- 
uled classes and reopen at 3 p.m. on the day preceding the resumption of classes. 
Students are not housed in the residence halls during Thanksgiving, Christmas, or spring 


Medical Services 

Millsaps provides medical services during the regular academic year to its students 
who are suffering from minor illnesses. The services are limited to students living in Mill- 
saps residence halls and fraternity houses. Medical services through the college physi- 
cian are available through the nurse on duty (hours 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Monday 
through Friday while school is in session) 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. These 
services are not available beyond the closing hours of the Internal Medicine Group with 
which the College physician is associated. The college does not pay for visits to specialists. 

Student Records 

in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, Mill- 
saps College students have the right to review, inspect, and challenge the accuracy 
of information kept in a cumulative file by the institution. It also ensures that records 
cannot be released without the written consent of the student except in the following 

(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 Millsaps College as directo- 
ry 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 attendance, 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, con- 
sult the staff of the Office of Records or the Office of Student Affairs. 

Millsaps College will not release transcripts of records until all accounts are paid 
in full. Should a party otherwise obligated to pay a just debt to the College fail to pay 
any such debt or cost to the College, then the debt may be turned over to an agent 
for collection and any such cost of collection must also be paid in full before the tran- 
script is released.

Loan Funds 

Stafford Guaranteed Student Loan Program. Under this program the student 
will complete the Guaranteed Student Loan Application for the Agency for his or her 
home state and a Financial Aid Form. He/she sends the Financial Aid Form to the Col- 
lege Scholarship Service listing Millsaps as the recipient. The student should send the 
Guaranteed Student Loan Application to Millsaps so that the college can complete its 
portion of this form. Once the student and college officials have completed their por- 


tions, the student should then take the completed form to an approved lender (a Credit 
Union, Bank, Savings and Loan, and any other lending institution). If the student can- 
not find a lender, he/she should contact the financial aid office at Millsaps. The interest 
on these loans at this time is 8% until the beginning of the 5th year of repayment and 
then the interest becomes 10%. If a student qualifies, the federal government will pay 
the interest while the student is in scht)ol. Annual loan limits are $2,625.00 for under- 
graduate freshmen and sophomores, $4,000.00 for upper level undergraduates and 
$7,500.00 for graduate students. The cumulative limits are $17,250.00 for an under- 
graduate and $54,750.00 for undergraduate and graduate work combined. (Repay- 
ment begins six months after graduation or withdrawal from school.) 

Plus/SLS. Under this program parents of students enrolled or accepted for enroll- 
ment as at least half-time students are eligible to borrow for the student's educational 
expenses. Independent undergraduate students or graduate/professional students who 
are enrolled or admitted for enrollment as at least half-time students are eligible to bor- 
row for their educational expenses under this program. Applications for this program 
may be obtained from the Student Aid Financial Planning Office. A variable interest rate 
has been established for both of these programs. Interest will be the one-year Treasury 
Bill rate, plus 3.75%, with a maximum of 12%. For a parent borrower $4,000.00 is the 
maximum per academic year for each dependent undergraduate student not to exceed 
a total of $20,000.00. The repayment period on the loan begins the day the loan is dis- 
bursed and interest begins to accrue that day. The first payment is due within 60 days 
of the date of loan disbursement. 

Perkins Loans (NDSL). A student may borrow in the first two academic years 
a total sum not to exceed $4,500 and during the undergraduate course of study a sum 
not exceeding $9,000. Payment of the loan begins nine months after the borrower has 
completed or withdrawn from higher education work and will be completed within 10 
years and nine months. The interest rate is 5 percent during repayment. Detailed infor- 
mation concerning this loan and application forms can be secured from the Dean of 
Student Aid Financial Planning at Millsaps.

Joseph C. Bancroft Loan Fund

Additional Financial Aid Opportunities 

Part-time Employment: Students who want part-time work on campus must ap- 
ply through the Awards Committee. Students seeking employment off campus may con- 
tact the Placement Office. 

The College Work-Study Program has been established from funds contributed 
by the federal government and the college to provide financial assistance through em- 

State Student Incentive Grants are provided by Millsaps, the state of Mississippi 
and the federal government. These funds are to help qualified students with substantial 
financial need. 

Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants are provided by the federal 
government to provide supplemental grants to other aid to assist in making available 
the benefits of higher education to qualified students of exceptional financial need who, 
for lack of financial means of their own or their families, would be unable to obtain an 

education without such aid. 


The Pell Grant was established by the Educational Amendments of 1972 and is 
funded by the federal government. When the grant is fully funded, each student is enti- 
tled each academic year to a grant of $2,100 less family contribution (method of deter- 
mining this contribution to be set by the U.S. Commissioner of Education), or half the 
college cost, whichever is less. 


Student Life 

Campus Ministry 

Religious life at Millsaps centers around the churches of the city of Jackson and 
the religious life program coordinated through the Cannpus Ministry Teann and other 
organizations on cannpus. 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 an informed com- 
mitment to a life of faith in the world. 

To meet this goal, the campus ministry program at Millsaps utilizes as fully as pos- 
sible the experiences of students in the classroom and the questions raised about the 
meaning of a life of faith as a point of departure. Programs concerning the relationship 
of faith to issues raised in the classroom, to questions about the focus of one's life and 
to questions about the relation of faith to global concerns are a focal point of the cam- 
pus ministry program of the college. 

Campus ministry at Millsaps is coordinated through the Campus Ministry Team, 
a group of approximately 70-80 students and staff, with faculty advisor, who plan pro- 
grams for the college community. The team works through task groups responsible for 
the various programs and projects of the Team: the weekly chapel services, voluntary 
service opportunities, faculty-student forums on various issues, sponsorship of events 
on the Friday Forum Series, devotional booklets written by students, faculty and staff; 
events in connection with the annual Student Symposium and others. 

In addition to the Campus Ministry Team, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes spon- 
sors a group on campus, as does the Catholic Church in the form of Catholic Campus 
Ministries. All campus ministry is strongly ecumenical. Furthermore, in addition to the 
College Chaplain, the college has been fortunate to have additional parttime and fulltime 
persons at various times working on campus through the United Methodist Mission In- 
tern Program, the Catholic VOICE program and Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship. 

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, 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. 

Public Events Committee 

The Public Events Committee receives funds from the student government to sponsor 
programs of general interest to the campus and community. Its major activity is the Fri- 
day 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 in- 
terest in current issues, to explore historical events, and to present differing perspec- 
tives 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 academ- 
ic departments interested in organizing programs open to the entire campus. These 
include films, guest speakers, and music recitals. 

All of these activities have to do with the true aim of liberal education: the liberation 
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 exist 
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 integral 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, cross country, tennis, 
golf, and soccer. The women's program includes basketball, tennis, soccer, cross country, 
and golf. 

The programs are conducted on guidelines established by the National Collegiate 
Athletic Association for Division III institutions and the College Athletic Conference. 

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


The program for men provides competition among campus organizations in basket- 
ball, volleyball, softball, tennis, and soccer. The program for women includes volley- 
ball, tennis, basketball, softball, and soccer. 


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. 

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 

Through Stylus, the college literary magazine, students interested in creative writ- 
ing 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 

Music and Drama 

The Millsaps Singers 

Open by audition to all students, the Singers represent Millsaps in public perfor- 
mances, campus programs and annual tours throughout the state and other areas of 
the 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 Symphony 
many times, the Chicago Chamber Orchestra and the New Orleans Philharmonic. 

The Troubadours 

Auditions are held each fall for membership in the Troubadours, a chamber choir 
of 16 students selected from the Singers who specialize in madrigals and vocal jazz. 
The Troubadours represent the college at numerous campus, high school, and cultural 
functions throughout the region. 

The Wind Ensemble 

The Wind Ensemble is an important performing group within the Music Department. 
Made up of brass, woodwinds, and percussion, this ensemble is open to all students 
with instrumental and musical experience. They enjoy giving performances alone or 
in concert with the Millsaps Singers. 

The Millsaps Players 

The Millsaps Players, now in their seventh decade, produce four full-length plays 
each year. In addition, they present several one-act plays directed by senior theatre 
majors. Casting for all plays is done by audition, open to all students. Participation in 
Players productions, either onstage or backstage, earns credit toward membership in 
Alpha Psi Omega, national honorary dramatics fraternity. Among the major productions 
staged in recent years are The Tempest, Ring Round the Moon, Biloxi Blues, Ghosts.

Before receiving a bachelor's degree the student must pass a satisfactory compre- 
hensive 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 written 
and part oral, the division of time between the two to be at the discretion of the mem- 
bers of the department concerned. The oral examination will be conducted by a com- 
mittee composed of members of the department, and, if desired by the department, 
one or more members of the faculty from other departments or other qualified persons. 

Students may take the comprehensive examination only if the courses in which they 
have credit and in which they are currently enrolled are those which fulfill the require- 
ments in their major department. They may take the examination in the spring semester 
if they are 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 semester. 

The time of the comprehensive examination is given in the College calendar. Com- 
prehensive examinations will not be given at any other time except by permission of 
the dean. Those who fail a comprehensive examination 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.L.S. 
degrees; 248 for the B.M. degree. An overall quality point index of 2.00 is required 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 Section Grades, Honors, Class Standing.) 

13. Application for a Degree: 

Each student who is a candidate for a degree is required to submit a written appli- 
cation 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 session. Forms 
for degree applications are to be secured and filed in the Office of Records. 

14. Requirements for a Second Degree: 

In order to earn a second degree from Millsaps College a student must have 30 
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 composition 
(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 sopho- 
more year. Those freshmen who, by virtue of previous study, plan to satisfy the lan- 
guage 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. 


Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental 

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

Biology 131-133 8 hours Mathematics 140-145 6 hours 

Chemistry 121-122, 123-124 . 8 hours Physics 111-112 or 131-132 in addition to 
Chemistry 231-232, 233-234 .10 hours 151-152 8-10 hours 

The student is urged to consult with a member of the Pre-medical Advisory Com- 
mittee (Sarah Armstrong, Al Berry, Robert Kahn, Robert Nevins, Robert McAdory, Tho- 
mas Pritchard, and Edmond Venator) in designing a program that will fit particular needs, 
background and interest. 

Millsaps College and the majonty of medical and dental schools strongly recom- 
mend that the student obtain a baccalaureate degree in an area of interest. This cata- 
log should be consulted elsewhere for the exact major and degree requirements. Millsaps 
and most medical and dental schools also strongly recommend tfiat the student de- 
velop 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. Students planning to obtain such 
credit should first consult the medical or dental schools in which they have an interest 
to be certain that the school will accept such credit. 

Students should remember that the requirements listed in a medical or dental school 
catalog are minimal but that they should obtain maximum preparation. In general, the 
student who is weak in some science, as shown by performance in introductory college 
courses, is urged to take further work in that science to prepare adequately. The stu- 
dent should also take courses that will not be available during professional training. The 
following courses are recommended as electives by many medical and dental schools. 

Biology 251, 215, 301, 320, 381, 383, 391 

Chemistry 251-253, 264-266, 363-365, 364-366, 391-393 


Economics and Business Administration 

Foreign Language (reading knowledge) 


Mathematics 262, 263 


Physics 231-232, 311-312, 315, 316 

Psychology 203, 307 


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


There is no required program of studies for persons planning to enter one of the 
ministries of the Church. Undergraduate pre-seminary work at Millsaps should include 
significant work in the study of religion and philosophy and in the behavioral sciences. 
A major may be chosen from several fields, including literature, philosophy, psycholo- 
gy, religion, and sociology. Pre-ministerial students are urged to consult with the pre- 
ministerial adviser, the chairman of the Department of Religion, early in their freshman 

Given the special challenges of the practice of ministry, students should plan to 
undertake professional education in a theological seminary. The best basis for such 
professional education is an undergraduate education with breadth in liberal arts studies. 



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 may obtain the desired training in these three areas from different 
courses. Therefore, students should consult with their faculty or major 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 advisor, John Quincy Adams, or other members of the Pre-Law Advisory Commit- 
tee (Peter Ward, Del Gann and Marlys Vaughn). 

Pre-Social Work 

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, preferably 
sociology. Introductory courses in sociology, psychology, and social work are essen- 
tial. 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. 

Programs for Teacher Certification 

A student may prepare for teacher certification at Millsaps College in a variety of 
ways. Millsaps offers Teacher Education Programs which lead to certification at the 
elementary school level (K-8), the secondary school level (7-12), and in special areas 
(K-1 2). A student may pursue any degree offered by the College and qualify for teacher 
certification provided all College major requirements are met and all teacher certifica- 
tion requirements are met. The Teacher Education Programs offer certification in Elemen- 
tary Education (K-8), Secondary Education (7-12) in Bible, English, Foreign Language, 
Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies, and in the special areas (K-1 2) Art, and Music 
Education. A student may also qualify for endorsements in Computer Education, Gifted 
Education, Health and Physical Education, or Remedial Reading. The Teacher Educa- 
tion Programs qualify the student for provisional teacher certification as required by the 
Office of Teacher Certification and the Mississippi State Board of Education. After com- 
pleting a certification program at Millsaps, the student will be prepared to pass the provi- 
sional year evaluation and receive the standard Class A certificate. 

Prior to being admitted to any Teacher Education Program at Millsaps Col 
lege, a student shall have completed the core curriculum, achieved a minimum grade 
point average of 2.50, passed the Communication Skills and General Knowledge tests 
of the National Teacher Examination, received the written recommendation of two faculty 
members outside the Department of Education, and completed all application proce- 
dures with the Chair of the Department of Education. Teacher Education comprehen- 
sive examination requirements include all four components of the National Teacher 
Examination. (Students are requested to have copies of their NTE scores sent directly 
to the Mississippi State Department of Education.) To receive the College's recommen- 
dation for teacher certification, the student must maintain the 2.5 G.P.A., pass the Profes- 
sional Knowledge and Specialty Area tests of the National Teacher Examination no later 
than the fall semester of the senior year, and complete the Portfolio for Comprehensive 
Examination with the Department of Education as appropriate. 


Cooperative Programs 


3-2 Master's Program in Business Administration: The Else School of Manage 
men! at Millsaps College offers a program permitting an undergraduate at Millsaps to 
pursue any non-B.B.A. degree concurrent with the M.B.A. degree. The student would 
complete substantially all Millsaps core and major requirements in three years and ap- 
ply to the M.B.A. program in the junior year. An acceptable score on the Graduate 
Management Admission Test is required for admission. The baccalaureate degree would 
be awarded after the degree requirements are satisfied at that level, normally after the 
fourth year, and the masters degree after the fifth year. Twenty-six hours of graduate 
work may be applied towards the undergraduate degree in this program. Details of the 
program may be obtained from the Assistant Dean of the Else School of Management. 


This program at Millsaps offers many opportunities for the student interested in en- 
gineering, applied science, management and business administration. With this cooper- 
ative program the student can combine the advantages of a liberal education at Millsaps 
with the specialized programs of a major university. The Arthur C. Miller Pre-engineering 
Scholarship Fund provides a scholarship based on financial need and academic progress 
for a student expressing an interest in engineering. 

3-2 B.S. Programs: At present we have arrangements with five universities - 
Auburn, Columbia, Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt and Washington Universities— by which 
a student may attend Millsaps for three years accumulating a minimum of 93 hours and 
then continue work at any of the schools listed above. The student then transfers a maxi- 
mum of 31 hours back for a bachelor's degree from Millsaps and at the end of the fifth 
year receives another bachelor's degree from the university. 

4-2 B.S. and M.S. Programs: The Columbia University Combined Plan also has 
4-2 programs in which a student attends Millsaps for four years completing degree re- 
quirements and then spends two more years at Columbia to obtain a B.S. or M.S. degree 
from the Columbia School of Engineering and Applied Science. 

3-3 B.S. -M.S. and B.S. -M.B.A. Programs: Washington University also has a Com- 
bined Degree Program wherein the student spends three years at Millsaps as in the 
3-2 program, but then spends three years at Washington University earning both the 
B.S. and M.S. from the School of Engineering and Applied Science or both the B.S. 
from the School of Engineering and Applied Science and the M.B.A. from the Gradu- 
ate School of Business Administration. 

A wide variety of programs are offered by the five participating universities, includ- 
ing financial aid for qualified students. For detailed descriptions of programs and finan- 
cial aid the interested student is urged to consult with the Pre-engineering Advisor, Asif 
Khandker. To be admitted to the programs listed below the student must fulfill certain 
minimum course requirements at Millsaps. For many programs, particularly those in 
engineering and applied science, the mathematics requirements are strict. To keep the 
3-2 or 4-2 option viable, a student should plan to take calculus at the earliest possible 
time at Millsaps. 

For students interested in engineering, the general expectation of the cooperating 
engineering schools is that most, if not all, of the science, mathematics and humanities 
requirements for the engineering degree be taken at Millsaps. Students interested in 
a particular program, however, should consult the catalog of the appropriate university 
and the Millsaps pre-engineering advisor. Some programs have particular requirements, 
such as the Auburn University electrical engineering requirement of an ethics course, 
which students might wish to fulfill at Millsaps. 

The Dual Degree Program at Auburn University includes bachelor of engineering 
degrees in aerospace, chemical, civil, electrical, industrial, materials and mechanical 
engineering. It is also possible to obtain a B.S. in agricultural engineering. 

The Combined Plan Program at Columbia University offers B.S. and M.S. degrees 
in civil, electrical, industrial, mechanical, mining, nuclear, biological, chemical, metal- 
lurgical and mineral engineering. Other programs include computer science, engineer- 
ing mechanics, applied mathematics (B.S. only), applied physics, materials science, 


operations research, solid state science (M.S. only), chemical metallurgy, applied chemis- 
try and materials science. 

The Dual Degree Program at the Georgia Institute of Technology offers degrees 
in aerospace, ceramic, chemical, civil, electrical, industrial, mechanical, nuclear, and 
textile engineering. Other programs include engineering science and mechanics, tex- 
tile chemistry, textiles, health physics, economics, management, management science, 
applied biology, applied mathematics, applied physics, applied psychology, chemis- 
try, information and computer science, and physics. 

Vanderbilt University offers bachelor of engineering degrees in chemical, civil, elec- 
trical and mechanical engineering. 

Washington University offers B.S. and M.S. programs in chemical, civil, electrical 
and mechanical engineering. Other programs include computer science, engineering 
and public policy, systems science and engineering, and business administration (M.B.A.) 


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, liter- 
ature, and other subjects which ensure a liberal arts experience for pre-medical tech- 
nology students. 

Millsaps College maintains a formal affiliation with several schools of medical tech- 
nology 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 Ameri- 
can Medical Association, the American Society of Clinical Pathologists, the American 
College of Surgeons, the American Hospital Association, and other authoritative medi- 
cal groups. 

The medical technology student is expected to spend the first three years at Mill- 
saps 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 biology. 

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 completing 
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 

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


A Military Science program is offered on the campus of Jackson State University 
under a cross-enrollment agreement between Millsaps College, Jackson State Univer- 
sity, and the U.S. Army. Students enrolled at Millsaps are eligible to enroll and attend 
Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) classes on the campus of Jackson State Univer- 
sity. Credits earned in ROTC will be entered onto the student's transcript but will not 
be counted towards Millsaps graduation requirements. 

ROTC provides male and female students an opportunity to earn a commission 
as a Second Lieutenant (2LT) in the U.S. Army, the U.S. Army Reserves, or the Army 
National Guard, concurrent with the pursuit of an academic degree. The objectives of 
the program are: 

(1) To provide an understanding of how the U.S. Army, U.S. Army Reserves, and Army 
National Guard fit into our national defense structure. 

(2) To develop the leadership and managerial potential of students needed to facilitate 
their future performance as officers. 

(3) To develop student abilities to think creatively and to speak and to write effectively. 

(4) To encourage the development of mental and moral standards that are essential 
to military service. 

The program of instruction includes developing self-discipline, physical stamina and 
other qualities necessary for leadership. 


The ROTC Program is divided into a basic course of instruction (freshman and sopho- 
more classes) and an advanced course of instruction (junior and senior classes). In ad- 
dition to the course of instruction, students are required to attend a leadership laboratory 
in conjunction with all ROTC courses. 

There is no charge for enrolling in the ROTC program; however, cadets must be 
full-time undergraduate students (12 semester hours or more) or full-time graduate stu- 
dents (9 semester hours or more) before enrollment in ROTC. Books, equipment, and 
uniforms are free of charge to the students. Three- and two-year ROTC scholarships 
are also awarded on a competitive basis.

Special Programs 

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 and the fall of their senior year, honors students carry out 
a research project of their choice under a professor's direction. The project's final product, 
consisting wholly or partially of a written thesis, is presented before a panel of faculty 
members. In the spring of the senior year, students participate in an interdisciplinary 
colloquium which intensively examines a topic of broad interest. Students successfully 
completing all phases of the Honors Program receive the designation "with honors" in 
their field of honors work at graduation. Students interested in participating in the Honors 
Program should consult with the director of the Honors Program in the fall of their junior 

The Washington Semester 

"The Washington Semester" is a joint arrangement between The American Univer- 
sity, 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 govern- 
•mental 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 the par- 
ticipating colleges will spend a semester at the School of Government and Public Ad- 
ministration of The American University in Washington. They earn 16 hours of credit 
toward.graduation in their home colleges. Eight hours are earned in a Conference Semi- 
nar, 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 In- 
ternship, 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 

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 remains an enrollee of Millsaps College for the purpose of scholarships 
and loans, which are thus not diminished by participation in the program. 

British Studies at Oxford 

Millsaps College, through membership in the Associated Colleges of the South, spon- 
sors 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 milieu which affords an incomparable opportunity to benefit from the experience. 
Up to SIX hours of credit may be earned through this program. Limited financial aid 
is available. 

Study Abroad Programs 

Millsaps College maintains cooperative arrangements with the Institute of European 
Studies and the Institute of East Asian Studies, which maintain programs in seven different 
countries. Students with a special interest in classics should consider the Intercollegiate 
Center for Classical Studies in Rome and the College Year in Athens Program, both 
of which offer semester programs in the classical languages combined with archeologi- 
cal site and museum study during the regular academic year. The American Academy 
in Rome and the American School of Classical Studies in Athens offer summer programs 
in classical art and archeology. Other study abroad programs are available in most coun- 
tries 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 chairman 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, per- 
forming 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 prominent 
regional and national business organizations and an agency of the federal government. 
The student's training is conducted and supervised by competent management per- 
sonnel according to a predetermined agenda of activities. Evaluation of the student's 
participation and progress provides the basis for granting appropriate academic credit. 
See offerings 451-452 in the Else School of Management. 


The Office of Adult Learning 

The Office of Adult Learning coordinates and administers services to adult learn- 
ers. Among these are the Adult Degree Program, the Community Enrichment Series, 
Leadership Seminars in the Humanities, the Post Baccalaureate Teacher Certification 
program, the admission of special students and admission to the Summer Session. 

The Adult Degree Program 

The Adult Degree Program was established in 1982 to meet the needs of adults 
24 years of age and older who, because of work or family responsibilities, cannot at- 
tend college in the traditional way. Students admitted to the Adult Degree Program are 
candidates for the Bachelor of Liberal Studies degree. 

This program features individualized academic advising, a required introductory 
seminar for adults returning to college, evaluation of previous college work, credit for 
prior learning, and the opportunity for independent directed study. Students in the Adult 
Degree Program may elect to major in one of the traditional disciplines or they may 
choose to" design an interdisciplinary major. 

In addition to its academic programs, Millsaps provides a variety of special serv- 
ices for adult students. These include career planning and placement assistance, finan- 
cial aid, information sessions, and newsletters. 

For further information about the Adult Degree Program, see the Guidelines and 
Procedures Handbook. 

The Community Enrichment Series 

Since 1972, Millsaps has sought to provide to the Greater Jackson community a 
variety of opportunities through the Community Enrichment Series. These are non-credit 
courses which require no prerequisites and no examinations. They cover a range of 
interests from "Writing and Selling Non-fiction," "Understanding the Stock Market," "Per- 
sonal Money Management" and "Computer for Beginners" to "Travel Abroad," "Humor 
and Creativity," "Landscape Gardening" and "Weaving." Enrichment courses are availa- 
ble in the fall, winter and spring each year 

Leadership Seminars in the Humanities 

Established in 1987 and made possible in part by a grant from the National En- 
dowment for the Humanities, Leadership Seminars in the Humanities bring together Mill- 
saps professors in the Humanities with corporate and professional leaders in the 
community. These seminars offer an opportunity for serious engagement with intellec- 
tual issues affecting society and the individual. Twelve participants are selected for each 

Summer Programs 

Advanced Placement Institutes are offered from time to time. Designed for teachers 
who teach Advanced Placement courses to selected high school students, these Insti- 
tutes are taught by instructors recommended by The College Board. Participants work 
with these master teachers to plan and prepare courses that will help students to be- 
come well prepared for college courses and to perform creditably on the Advanced 
Placement Examinations. 


The Graduate Program 

Master of Business Administration 

The Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) degree is offered in both daytime 
and evening classes. The Millsaps M.B.A. program is particularly suited for those stu- 
dents with a liberal arts background. 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 founda- 
tion courses may be taken at the undergraduate level: Accounting 281-282; Business 
Administration 220, 274, 275, 321, 333, 334, 336, 362; and Economics 201-202. 

For further information about the MBA Program, see the Graduate Catalog. 


of the Curriculum 

♦ 9 

Grades, Honors, Class Standing 

The grade in any class is determined by the combined class standing and a written 
examination. The examination is approximately one-third of the grade for the semester. 
"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 grade. 
"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 com- 
puted 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 qual- 
ity point for each semester hour; a grade of C for the semester shall entitle a student 
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 index is deter- 
mined 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: 

24 quality points 

72 quality points 

144 quality points 

For sophomore rating 24 hours; 

For junior rating 52 hours; 

For senior rating 90 hours; 

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 fewer than 12 academic hours may not represent 
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 stu- 
dents 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 stu- 
dents 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 


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

Repeat Courses 

A student may enroll in a course at Millsaps which has previously been taken. In 
such a case the highest grade earned in that course will be used in determining the 
cumulative quality point average. A course may only be repeated for a higher grade 
at Millsaps. If a course previously taken at Millsaps is repeated at another school, the 
Millsaps grade, whether higher or lower will be used in determining the cumulative quality 
point average. All grades reported for the course remain a part of the permanent record. 

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 shall be graduated Magna Cum Laude; 
and one whose quality point index is 3.9 and who has a rating of excellent on the com- 
prehensive 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 students will be considered eligible 
only if they have 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 overall 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 to the pro- 
gram will in the second semester of the junior year enroll in a directed study entitled 
Honors Research I. Work begun at that time will ordinarily be completed in the fall 
semester of the senior year when the student will be enrolled in Honors Research II. 
A letter grade will be given for each of these courses. The two semesters of research 
are intended to culminate in an honors project presented to the Honors Council and 
defended before an examining board. 

The last semester in the Honors Program consists of an Honors Colloquium designed 
to bring together for intellectual exchange all students in the Honors Program. 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 investigation of mutu- 
al interest to all disciplines. The Honors Colloquium is required of all students in the 
Honors Program. 

A candidate who completes the colloquium satisfactorily, who presents and de- 
fends the honors project satisfactorily, who has a 3.0 overall quality point index, and 
who has a 3.33 index in honors work will be graduated with Honors. 

A student may voluntarily withdraw candidacy for honors at any time. Students en- 
rolled in honors courses are, however, bound by the general college rules for dropping 
a course and for receiving course credit. Candidacy may be involuntarily terminated 
upon the recommendation of the honors advisor and with the approval of the Honors

have a quality index of 2.5 on the last semester. No student may take more than 19 
semester flours without a quality point index of 3.00 on the last semester and permis- 
sion 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, unless a graduating senior. 

Administrative Regulations 

Schedule Changes 

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 adviser. 

No student can be registered for courses in another college while being enrolled 
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 
dropped after this time are recorded as F. Students who drop a course without securing 
the required approvals will receive 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 con- 
sidered unless this written notice is procured and presented to the Business Office. 

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 course. 

Enforced withdrawal may result from habitual delinquency in class, or any other 
circumstance which prevents the student from fulfilling the purpose of 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 withdrawing 
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 all accounts are settled in the Business Office. 

Academic Suspension 

For full-time students entering the college as freshmen, it is necessary to pass in 
the first semester six hours of academic work in order to remain in college. Thereafter 
a full-time student must pass nine hours of academic work to be eligible to continue 
in college. Furthermore, the maximum number of semesters a student may be on aca- 
demic probation without suspension is two. 


Students who are requested not to re-enter because ot academic failure may peti- 
tion in writing for re-admission, but such petition will not be granted unless convincing 
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 ap- 
ply 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 on academic probation for 
two semesters is asked not to re-enroll at Millsaps College. 

Unsatisfactory Academic Progress 

A part-time student who makes a quality index of less than 1.5 in any semester 
will be notified that he or she is making unsatisfactory academic progress. To be re- 
moved from that classification the student must make a 2.0 quality index during a regu- 
lar semester or summer session. 

Class Attendance 

Irregular attendance indicates that the student may be having difficulties adjusting 
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 circumstances, the 
faculty member is expected to report in writing the student's unsatisfactory 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 — after three successive absences for reasons unknown to the in- 
structor, or when 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 the semester. This may extend to dismissal 
from the course with a grade of T" 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. Ex- 
planation 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 explana- 
tions are not in themselves excuses. This is particularly important in the case of absences 
involving missed examinations, late assignments, laboratory sessions and similar sched- 
uled commitments. Faculty members, however, may not excuse students from atten- 
dance 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 college 
and the particular policies operative in each class. Further details relating to attendance 
are in the student handbook. 

Permission to make up an examination or alter the time for an examination may 
be granted only through the vice president and dean of the college. Any special exami- 
nation, if granted, must be held no later than the sixth week of the next regular semester. 

A student who has been excluded from a course by recommendation of the in- 
structor may 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 ad- 
ministered by the instructor, shall cover the work of the course up to that date. Re-entry 
shall depend upon the examination results. If a student does not petition for re-entry, 
or if the re-entry is denied, the grade shall be recorded as F. 



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 exemption 
does not ensure 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 student be ex- 
empt 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 require- 
ments by petition to the dean of the college. 

Honor in an Academic Community 

Millsaps College is an academic community where men and women pursue a life 
of scholarly inquiry and intellectual growth. The foundation of this community is a spirit 
of personal honesty and mutual trust. In order to maintain trust between members of 
the College, faculty and students must adhere to these basic ethical principles. Honor 
within an academic community is not simply a matter of rules and procedures; it is an 
opportunity to put personal responsibility and integrity into action. When students ac- 
cept the implicit bond of honor of an academic community, they liberate themselves 
to pursue their academic goals in an atmosphere of mutual confidence and respect. 

Student Behavior 

The College has the responsibility and authority to establish standards for scholar- 
ship, student conduct and campus life. Therefore, it cannot condone violations of local, 
state or federal laws or conduct detrimental to students or to the College. Students, as 
adults, are presumed to know the law as to illegal conduct prohibited by municipal, 
state or federal law and are governed thereby. 

Millsaps students are expected to act with honesty and integrity in personal, social 
and academic relationships and with consideration and concern for the community, its 
members and its property. 

Millsaps requires from every student sober, decorus and upright conduct as long 
as he/she remains a member of the college community, whether he or she be within 
its precincts or not. No individual or group should cause serious discomfort or injury 
to others or to the community. This will include such acts as obstruction or disruption 
of teaching, research, administration or other collegiate activities and unauthorized en- 
try to or use of college facilities. 

The College expects students to be concerned with the physical and psychologi- 
cal well-being of others and cannot condone behavior which exploits another individu- 
al. Students and organizations are expected to comply with rules governing the academic, 
social, and residential life of the College. They are expected to comply with directions 
of college officials. Students are also responsible for the behavior of their guests while 
on Millsaps property and/or at Millsaps functions. 

Alcoholic Beverages 

The Trustees and administration are fully committed to the spirit of the United 
Methodist Church and are equally committed to comply with the laws of the state of 
Mississippi regarding the consumption of alcoholic beverages, (which shall include, but 
not be limited to, light wine and beer) on the Millsaps College campus. It is the position 
of the college that the use of alcoholic beverages is not a part of, nor does it contribute 
to, the total educational emphasis of Millsaps College and to the full and abundant life 
that God wills for each person. 

The College expects students to comply with the laws of the State of Mississippi 
and the college regulations relating to alcoholic beverages and to accept responsibility 
for their behavior as members of the College Community. The College does not con- 
done the illegal possession, use, distribution or sale of alcoholic beverages. 

A student may consume alcoholic beverages only within the privacy of his or her 
room whether in the residence hall or in the fraternity/sorority facilities and only in ac- 


cordance with the state law which prohibits the drinking ot alcoholic beverages for those 
under 21 years of age. Regardless of age and state law requirements, no student is 
allowed to consume alcoholic beverages outside the confines of a student's room. 

Fraternity and sorority facilities are subject to all applicable state laws and city or- 
dinances. The display, serving, consumption, or any other use of alcoholic beverages 
is prohibited in public areas which include the lounges, porches, yards, grounds and 
other external structures of such facilities. 

Consumption of alcoholic beverages for those of age in a student's room in the 
residence hall or fraternity/sorority facilities must never result in irresponsible behavior 
or contribute to an environment not conducive to the realization of the primary goals 
and aims of the College. 

The possession and consumption of alcoholic beverages are not permitted in any 
public area on the campus. This includes all public areas on the campus. Public areas 
are defined as any area outside of the student's private room. 

Complete regulations governing the use of alcoholic beverages on campus and 
at off-campus functions may be found in the current Major Facts, the student handbook. 

The use, possession or distribution of narcotics or dangerous drugs such as mariju- 
ana, except as expressly allowed by law, is not permitted. Gambling is not permitted 
on campus. 

Disciplinary Regulations 

Students guilty of serious infractions of college regulations may be placed on so- 
cial probation, disciplinary probation, suspension or expulsion at the discretion of the 
Judicial Council, the dean of student affairs or the president of the college dependent 
upon the original jurisdiction. Cases involving a recommendation of suspension or ex- 
pulsion are automatically appealable to the president of the college. 

Social Probation 

Social probation is a warning to a student regarding conduct standards. Its primary 
purpose is to serve as a period of time in which a student is asked to prove responsibili- 
ty to himself/herself and the College. 

When a student is placed on social probation he/she is prohibited from participat- 
ing in extracurricular campus activities such as fraternity/sorority social activities, intramural 
and varsity sports. In addition a student may hold no office of campus leadership. 

When an organization is placed on social probation the organization may not sponsor 
social activities in the name of the organization for the period of the social probation. 

Disciplinary Probation 

Disciplinary probation is the most serious penalty, short of suspension and expul- 
sion, that can be incurred by a student. During a period of disciplinary probation any 
further infraction of college regulations will render the student liable to suspension, 

Disciplinary Suspension and Disciplinary Expulsion 

Suspension is a decision to temporarily separate a student from the college. 

Expulsion is a decision to permanently separate a student from the college. 

When a student is placed on disciplinary probation, suspended or expelled, par- 
ents are notified and asked to come to the campus for a conference with the President 
and the dean of student affairs. 

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

Objective of the Else School of Management. The objective of the Else School 
of Management is to provide managerial and professional leadership to the larger soci- 
ety by educating future leaders in business and public administration and in the ac- 
counting profession, by providing consulting and other services to the community, and 
by expanding the body of knowledge in the field of management. With respect to the 
educational mission, our goals are to develop a general management outlook toward 
organizations and the changing environment they face; to foster the ability to organize 
information for analysis as the basis for making decisions; to instill standards of profes- 
sional behavior which are consistent with the legitimate expectations of society; and 
to provide technical expertise required for entry-level positions and leadership attri- 
butes necessary to attain positions in general management. 

Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA). Accounting and business adminis 
tration majors must complete additional requirements for the Bachelor of Business Ad- 
ministration degree (B.B.A.). Economics majors must complete additional requirements 
for either a B.A., B.S. or B.L.S. degree. Tfie 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 required by the Else School 
of Management. 

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


Coursework at the 300-level or above may be taken only by students who have 
completed at least 52 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 Else 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 software 
packages and statistics requirements (Business Administration 274 and 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 18 hours of courses offered by the Else School of Management to 
meet the requirement for the BBA degree and the major regardless of the specific re- 
quirements satisfied by transfer hours. In some instances this may mean repeating cer- 
tain 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 prepa- 
ration for the C.P.A. and CM. A. examinations. Accounting majors must complete the 
requirements for a B.B.A. degree in addition to requirements for the major. Account- 
ing 281-282 and Economics 201 -202 should not be taken before the sophomore year. 
Business Administration 274 and 275 should be taken before the junior year. Account- 
ing 381 , 382, 391 , and 394 and Business Administration 321 , 333, 334, and 362 should 
be taken in the junior year. Accounting 392, 395, 398, and 491 and Business Adminis- 
tration 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 foundation to enter several professional fields. 

Administration majors should take Accounting 281 -282, Economics 201 -202, and 
Business Administration 220, 274 and 275 before their junior year. Business Adminis- 
tration 321 , 333, 334, 336, and 362 should be taken during the junior year. Electives, 
and Business Administration 399 should be taken in the senior year. 

Students majoring in business administration are expected to demonstrate an aware- 
ness of the global dimension of the business world by successfully completing one of 
the following courses: Business Administration 339 or 369, Economics 348, or three 
hours in a modern language beyond the elementary level. 

Requirements for a B.A., B.S. or B.L.S. degree with a major in Economics: 

This economics major is required to take Mathematics 1 40 and 1 55, Business Adminis- 
tration 274 and 275, Economics 201, 202, 303, 304, 348, 491 and six hours of eco- 
nomics electives. The degree earned can be either a B.A., B.S. or B.L.S. To prepare 
for graduate studies in economics the student should take the following Mathematics 
sequence: 140, 145, 161, and 262. 

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 
12 hours beyond the degree requirements, including the following: for the accounting 
minor Accounting 281-282, Economics 201-202, and six additional hours of account- 
ing; for the administration minor nine hours from Accounting 281-282 and Economics 
201 -202, Business Administration 333, and six additional hours of business administra- 
tion. Students pursuing any undergraduate degree may minor in economics with Eco- 
nomics 201-202 and 12 additional hours of economics. Administration 275, Statistics,
