Information for Prospective Students 




Information for Prospective Students 



History of the College 

Millsaps College was founded in 1 890 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. Fifty 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 Cgllege's influence outside the state. 

By the time of its centennial celebration in 1990, enrollment at Millsaps had more than 
doubled with approximately one-half of the students coming from out of state. The 
quality of the liberal arts program was nationally recognized with the award of a Phi Beta 
Kappa chapter in 1988. A graduate program in business administration, begun in 1979, 
received national accreditation along with the undergraduate business program in 1990. 
Millsaps' first president, William Belton Murrah, served until 1910. Other presidents 
were David Carlisle Hull ( 1 9 1 0- 1 9 1 2), Dr. Alexander Farrar Watkins ( 1 9 1 2- 1 923), Dr. 
DavidMartin Key (1923-1938), Dr. MarionLoftonSmith(1938-1952), Dr. Homer Ellis 
Finger, Jr. (1952-1964), Dr. Benjamin Barnes Graves (1965-1970), and Dr. Edward 
McDaniel CoUins, 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. 
Students 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 
ability 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 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 to students include the Mississippi Department of Archives 
and History, the State Law Library, the Jackson/Hinds Library System, the Rowland 
Medical Library and a number of other special libraries unique to the capitol area. 
Together, they provide research facilities found nowhere else in the state. Cultural 
advantages include the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra, New Stage Theatre, Missis- 
sippi Opera Association, and musical, dramatic, and sporting events held at the City 
Auditorium and the Mississippi Coliseum. 

Millsaps is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of 
Colleges and Schools to award the degrees of Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Business 
Administration, Bachelor of Liberal Studies, Bachelor of Science, Master of Accoun- 
tancy, Master of Business Administration, and Master of Liberal Studies. The College 
is approved by the American Association of University Women and the University 
Senate of the United Methodist Church. The Business programs offered by the Else 



Schoolof Management, Millsaps College are accredited by the American Assembly of 
Collegiate Schools of Business. The Department of Chemistry is accredited by the 
American Chemical Society and the Department of Education is accredited by the 
National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education. Copies of any of these 
documents may be requested by writing the Vice President and Dean of the College. 

The Millsaps-Wilson Library 

The Millsaps-Wilson Library has more than 285,000 volumes, 800 periodical subscrip- 
tions and a wide variety of electronic services, including CD-ROM and remote 
databases. 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 listening 
facilities. Special collections include the Lehman Engel Collection of books and 
recordings; 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 collection. An electronic library catalog is available on the College-wide 
network. The library is a member of the Central Mississippi Library Council and the 
Southeastern Library Network. 

Computing Facilities 

In today's increasingly complex and information-driven society, students need to 
understand the role of computing. Millsaps has developed outstanding computing 
resources for teaching, learning and research. From nine terminal complexes across the 
campus or from their residence hall room, students have access to the fiber optic-based 
College computer network, supported by a cluster of Digital Equipment VAXA^MS 
systems located in the Academic Complex. All students have computer accounts on the 
network and have access to electronic mail and word processing as well as the worldwide 
Internet network. In addition, two personal computer laboratories and a terminal 
classroom for teaching are located in Sullivan-Harrell Hall. Specialized facilities 
include two multimedia laboratories, an imaging laboratory in Sullivan-Harrell Hall, a 
personal computer laboratory for graduate students in Murrah Hall and laser printing 
services. 

Buildings and Grounds 

The lOO-acre campus is valued at about $30 million. Chief administrative offices are in 
the newly renovated James Boyd Campbell Administrative Center. Completed in 1 994, 
the Center includes Whitworth Hall and Sanders 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 1990, houses the departments of Computer Studies, Geology, 
Mathematics, Physics, Education, Psychology and Sociology. The Olin Hall of Science,

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 modem theatre stage.

centrally cooled and heated. 

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

Applying for Admission 

Students applying to Millsaps as freshmen may choose from three decision plans. 

Early Decision Plan 

Students who have decided that Millsaps is clearly their first choice college and are 
certain they will enroll if admitted may apply under the Early Decision Plan. These 
candidates learn of admission and financial aid decisions earlier than all other 
applicants. By applying under the Early Decision Plan, students can complete the 
college selection process early in the senior year. Early Decision candidates are 
encouraged to file all admission credentials at the beginning of the senior year, and 
no later than November 15. Students who are admitted under the Early Decision 
Plan will be notified by December 5, and are expected to submit a nonrefundable 
enrollment and housing deposit of $250 by February 1. 

Early Action Plan 

Early Action is an option for any student wishing to submit complete admission 
credentials and learn of admission early, without making an immediate commit- 
ment to enroll. The Early Action Plan does not require that Millsaps be a student's 
first choice. The deadline for submitting applications for Early Action is December 
1, and admissions decisions will be mailed by December 20. 

Regular Decision Plan 

The Regular Decision Plan is when the majority of students applying to Millsaps 
submit their applications. Two rounds of consideration are available for students 
under the Regular Decision Plan. Round one is for applicants who submit complete 
admission credentials postmarked by February 1 . Admissions decisions will be 
mailed by March 1. Round two is for students whose credentials are postmarked 
by March 1, with decisions mailed by April 1. 

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. 



77 

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 
admission should submit a final transcript upon completion of the course of 
study. 

3. Freshman andjunior college applicants must submit results of either the American 
College Test (ACT ) or Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). 

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 

Orientation into the college community is essential to a student's college success. The 
importance of this process is seen through the College's commitment to the Perspectives 
program. Perspectives introduces the incoming student to a variety of issues and 
activities. Many are fun, some are challenging, but all are developed to inform the 
students about issues they will be facing throughout their college careers and beyond. 

Building relationships is an important component of the program. The Perspectives 
group is led by student leaders who work with the group on a weekly basis addressing 
various issues. The faculty advisor works with the group through the orientation process 
and also serves as the initial academic advisor. This relationship continues until the 
student selects a major field of study, at which time a professor in that field becomes the 
advisor. 



Admission Requirements 

Millsaps College accepts without regard to race, color, sex, creed or national origin all 
who are qualified to benefit from its academic program. 

Freshman Admission 

Application for admission as a full-time student with freshman standing may be made

average after transfer credits are entered. 

6. In the case of a student transferring to Millsaps with partial fulfillment of a core 
requirement, the registrar in consultation with the appropriate faculty committee 
may approve courses to substitute for the remainder of the requirement. Students 
should consult with the Office of Records for college policy on courses that will 
substitute.

by examination. 

8. Credit is not given for correspondence courses.

Financial assistance is available to eligible non-citizens, but is not available to 
international students. International students must come prepared to pay the full cost of 
attending Millsaps and to support themselves during periods when the College is closed. 

Leaves of Absence and Readmission 

Students who leave the College for one semester or longer may apply for readmission 
by completing the appropriate application and presenting transcripts for all academic 
work attempted while away from the College. Students on approved leaves of absence 
are not required to apply for readmission. They must, however, meet with the Director 
of Academic and Career Development for information about the leave of absence 
process. Those who are absent for more than four years may be required to meet 
graduation requirements in effect at the time of readmission or do additional work in 
their major in order to qualify for a degree. 

Advanced Placement and Credit by Examination 

Students entering Millsaps College may earn a waiver of certain requirements or college 
credit as a result of their performance on specific examinations. The amount of waiver 
or credit is limited to two courses in any discipline and to seven courses overall, with the 
exception of the Adult Degree Program where the limits are three and eight courses 
respectively. 

Scores on the appropriate Advanced Placement examination, C.L.E.P. subject matter 
examination, or C.E.E.B. achievement test should be sent to the Office of Records for 
evaluation. A score of 4 or 5 is ordinarily required on an A. P. exam in order to receive 



14 Information for Prospective Students 



academic credit, although in some departments a score of 3 is accepted if validated by 
subsequent work in the discipline. 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.) 

For information concerning scores necessary to attain course credit for Advanced 
Placement or other examinations, such as C.L.E.P., students should consult with the 
registrar or the dean of the college. 

Additionally, Adult Degree Program students (BLS candidates) may develop and 
submit appropriate' portfolios for consideration for non-graded academic credit. De- 
tailed information is available in the Prior Learning Credit Handbook which is 
distributed during orientation to all ADP students. 

Counseling Services 

Since counseling is a wonderful opportunity for personal growth, a wide array of 
counseling services are offered through Counseling Services. The counselor can assist 
students in improving academic performance by helping them improve study skills 
techniques such as time management, note-taking, problem-solving, and test-taking. 
Help is also available for students wishing to engage in self-exploration and goal-setting; 
to discuss relationships, stress reduction, or other personal concerns; and to obtain 
information on other community resources. Referrals to professionals or treatment 
programs off campus will be made when appropriate. 

The Career Center 

Career planning begins in the first year of college with the exploration of academic 
majors. Through interest testing, planning and consultation with the Career Center staff, 
students can explore academic interests and possible career directions. 

To aid students in developing their interests, the Career Center sponsors the Meet Your 
Major Fair in the fall and spring at which faculty and students of the majors are available 
to talk to first and second year students about majors and goals. In addition, the Career 
Center offers a large number of internship positions nationally and locally which may 
be taken for credit beginning in the second semester of the freshman year. 

Developing skills in resume writing, interviewing and job search strategies are empha- 
sized for junior and senior students through workshops as well as through individual 
sessions with the Career Center staff. Current listings of employment opportunities are 
available for both full and part time work. Opportunities to meet with representatives 
from graduate and professional schools, businesses, and government agencies are 
scheduled through on-campus interview schedules and through the Graduate School 
Fair in the fall and Job Fair in the spring.

Student Housing 

Student housing is an important service rendered by any college. However, Millsaps 
places a great deal of emphasis on the learning process that takes place within the 
residence halls. The student housing program is administered by a team of professionals 
including the Associate Dean of Students, Director of Student Housing, Residence Life 
Coordinators, and Resident Assistants. 

Housing assignments for new students are made by the Director of Student Housing who 
can be found in the Office of Student Affairs. This person assists students in determining 
their living situations by taking into account building preference, roommate choice, and 
several other factors. Questions regarding the assignment process should be forwarded 
to the Director of Student Housing. 

Millsaps is a residential college based upon the belief that a significant amount of 
learning and growth takes place outside of the classroom. As such, a residency 
requirement has been established. All students classified, by credit units, as freshmen or 
sophomores are required to live in college residence halls. Exceptions to this policy may 
be granted if the student is married or lives with his or her immediate family in Jackson 
or vicinity. Freshmen and sophomore students are not allowed to live in the fraternity 
house during the academic year. 

Residence hall rooms are designed to house two students each. Students should send the 
completed housing forms and housing deposit by the designated date. Assignments are 
made in the order of seniority for housing (classification, deposit, etc.). Students wishing 
to room together should specify their desire to room together on their housing request. 
Single rooms are normally not available. Room rent cannot be refunded after the 
semester begins. 

Assignments for upperclass students are made in the spring. The process is arranged with 
Student Affairs and the RHA. Students should contact the RA or RHA representative for 
more information. 

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, must pay the room deposit and will be put on a waiting list for 
room assignments. 

A quiet wing option is offered for first year students who wish to live in an environment 
where more intensive study is possible 24 hours a day. 

Residence halls open at 9 a.m. on the day preceding each term and close at 1 2 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 scheduled 
classes and reopen at 3 p.m. on the day preceding the resumption of classes. Students are 
not housed in residence halls during Thanksgiving, Christmas, or spring holidays. 

Wesson Health Services 

Millsaps College offers a comprehensive health care program for its students. This 
program is administered through the College nurse who is certified in college health 
nursing. The nurse works with the school physicians to provide health and emergency 
care for students. The school physicians hold clinic on campus twice a week. Students 
should contact the College nurse (974- 1 207) for appointments and for more information 
regarding the various services provided. 



16 



Student Records 



In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, Millsaps 
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 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 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 attendance, degrees and awards 
received, the most recent previous educational institution attended by the student, 
and information needed for honors and awards. Students who do not wish such 
information released without their consent 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 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 transcript is released.

enrolled for the succeeding semester. Students must settle all financial accounts 
due the College before the final examination period begins. The registrar is not 
permitted to transfer credits until all outstanding indebtedness is paid. No student 
will graduate unless all indebtedness, including library fines and graduation fee, has 
been settled. •

Campus Ministry 



Religious life at Millsaps centers around the churches, synagogues and other faith 
communities of the city of Jackson and the campus ministry program coordinated 
through the Campus Ministry Team and the Office of the Chaplain. Churches provide 
communities of faith for students, faculty and staff. The campus ministry program 
attempts to provide experiences which explore the meaning of a life of faith for a college 
community. 

To accomplish this, a varied program is offered: sponsorship of special programs on the 
Millsaps Forum Series on social, religious and personal issues; field trips to various 
places, including the New York Seminar; faculty-student-staff programs addressing 
issues on campus and in the larger society; fellowship experiences; Bible studies; 
mentoring programs in neighboring schools; projects in the community working with 
disadvantaged populations; chapel and special services such as All Saints Day, Advent, 
Ash Wednesday and Maundy Thursday Services; emphases on such issues as AIDS ; and 
many others. In addition, the campus chapter of Habitat for Humanity is very active and 
the Midtown Project involves a large number of volunteers in a city-wide effort to 
rehabilitate this historic area of the city which has suffered greatly from drugs, violence 
and deteriorating housing. All of these experiences are meant to communicate an active 
understanding of the life of faith as it addresses crucial social needs. Overall, the campus 
ministry program at Millsaps is one of the most varied on campus. 

In addition to the Campus Ministry Team, other programs operating on campus include 
Catholic Campus Ministry, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, the Methodist student 
group, and Primetime (a Christian fellowship group). All campus ministry is strongly 
ecumenical. Furthermore, in addition to the College Chaplain, the College has been 
fortunate to have additional part-time and full-time persons working on campus from 
time to time through such programs as the United Methodist Mission Intern Program and 
the Catholic VOICE program. We are pleased to currently have a member of the Order 
of the Living Word working on campus with Catholic students. 

The Office of the Chaplain serves as a liaison with churches, with The Mississippi 
Conference of the United Methodist Church, and with other denominations. Further- 
more, a working relationship has been established with many community projects and 
agencies as vehicles for student involvement. 



Public Events 

The Public Events Committee receives funds from the student government and the 
College to sponsor programs of general interest to the campus and community. Its major 
activity is the Millsaps Forum Series - a continuing slate of speakers 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 differing 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 campus. These include 
films, guest speakers, and music recitals. 



29 

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. 



Athletics 

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. 

Intercollegiate Athletics 

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

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

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

Campus Recreation 

The largest and most popular aspect of campus recreation at Millsaps is the intramural 
program. Intramurals have provided competition, exercise and recreation for men and 
women at Millsaps for many years. Activities include volleyball, tennis, soccer, 
basketball, golf, flag football, frisbee golf and softball. 

Sport clubs continue to grow in popularity. These organizations are organized by 
faculty, staff and students with a common interest. Active clubs include cycling, dance, 
water skiing, indoor soccer and karate. 

The popularity of fitness has brought aerobics to campus. A variety of aerobics classes 
are offered in the new fitness building and a weight lifting room is also available for all 
students, faculty and staff 



Publications 

The Purple and White, the official student newspaper of the College, is edited, 
managed, and written by students. The P & VK provides coverage of Millsaps events, 
as well as serving as a campus forum. 

The Bobashela, the student yearbook of Millsaps College, gives an annual comprehen- 
sive view of campus life. Bobashela is an Indian name for good friend. 

Stylus, the student literary magazine, publishes twice a year the best poetry, short stories, 
essays, and art submitted by Millsaps students.

first year. Reflections on Liberal Studies must be completed during the senior year. All 
other core courses should be completed by the end of the sophomore year. Transfer 
students and Adult Degree Program students who cannot meet this schedule should try 
to complete their core requirements as early in their college careers as possible. 

Liberal Arts Abilities 

The Millsaps liberal arts education is intended to help develop these abilities: 

Reasoning - the ability to think logically and reflectively, to analyze critically and 
constructively. 

Communication - the ability to express one's thoughts and feelings coherently and 
persuasively through written and oral communication and to work effectively in 
collaboration with others. 

Quantitative Thinking - the ability to understand, interpret, and use numerical and 
scientific data and the technology of the modem world. 

Historical Consciousness - the ability to understand the achievements, problems and 
challenges of the present with perspectives gained from a study of the past. 

Aesthetic Judgement - the ability to understand and appreciate creative responses to the 
world, and to develop one's own modes of creative expression. 

Global and Multi-Cultural Awareness - the ability to understand and appreciate a variety 
of social and cultural perspectives. 



39 

Valuing and Decision-Making - the ability to understand and appreciate differing moral 
viewpoints; to make carefully considered, well-reasoned decisions; and to make a 
mature assessment of one's own abilities, beliefs and values. 

Multi-Disciplinary Topics Courses Core 2-5 

Multi-disciplinary topics courses (core 2-5) use a thematic rather than survey approach. 
They take their focus from a particular field of knowledge — fine arts, history, literature, 
philosophy, or religion — but make explicit connections with other fields of knowledge. 
In this way students are encouraged to view human experience as a whole and to begin 
the process of making their own connections. Although a particular theme is chosen for 
each topics course, the themes are placed in their appropriate historical and global 
contexts and presented in such a way as to illustrate the process of historical change. All 
multi-disciplinary topics courses include a substantial amount of writing, with an 
emphasis on analysis and critical thinking. 

Students should choose their topics courses in chronological sequence, beginning with 
the ancient world in the fall of their first year and proceeding to the contemporary world 
in the spring of their second year. Each topics course has either a primary or double 
disciplinary focus. Students must choose courses to meet this requirement which 
represent at least three different disciplinary focuses. 

The Heritage Program 

Heritage is a four-course, multi-disciplinary humanities program designed for freshmen 
as an alternative to the multi-disciplinary topics courses. It fulfills the requirements for 
core 2-5 and fine arts. 

Topics Courses Core 6-9 

Topics courses in the social and behavioral sciences, natural sciences, mathematics and 
computer science (core 6-9) may be multi-disciplinary, but need not be. Courses meeting 
these requirements are designed to foster general abilities such as reasoning, quantita- 
tive thinking, valuing and decision-making. They also include writing. Laboratory 
science courses introduce students to scientific method and to a representative body of 
scientific knowledge in a way that promotes an appreciation for the impact of science 
upon the contemporary world. 

Fine Arts 

In addition to completing the requisite core courses, students must demonstrate 
proficiency in the fine arts in one of the following ways: 

1) completing the Heritage curriculum, or 

2) completing one of the following courses with a grade of C or higher, 
-IDS topics course with a fine arts focus 

-Art 2500, 2510, 2520, 2530, 2540, 2550, 2560 
-Music 1000, 1010, 1100, 2120 
-Theatre 1000, 1010, or 

3) demonstrating significant experience in creating art objects or demonstrating 
a prescribed level of competence in the performing arts by 
-completing four semesters of private study of voice or an instrument, or 
-completing a full course unit in studio art, or 

-completing a full course unit in Singers or a music ensemble, or 
-completing significant participation in four Players' productions. 



40 Curriculum 



Writing Assessment Portfolio 

A portfolio of writing completed during the first two years will be assessed by the end 
of the sophomore year to determine writing proficiency. Demonstration of writing 
proficiency through this portfolio is a graduation requirement. Students will not be 
eligible to enroll for Core 1 until they have satisfied this requirement. Transfer students 
must demonstrate equivalent proficiency to the satisfaction of the director of the Writing 
Program. They are advised to consult with the director as soon after beginning their study 
at Millsaps as possible to arrange for establishing their portfolio. 

Exemptions for Transfer Students 

With the approval of the Core Council, transfer students may substitute courses in 
history, literature, philosophy, or religion to meet one or more of the core 2, 3, 4 or 5 
requirements. All four historical periods and at least three disciplines must be repre- 
sented either by transfer credit or by course work at Millsaps in order to fulfill these 
graduation requirements. There must also be evidence of a significant amount of writing. 
Likewise, a student who completes a course in the natural sciences, mathematics, or 
social and behavioral sciences which presumes the skill and knowledge of a core course 
may be exempt from that particular core requirement. Once a student has enrolled at 
Millsaps, he or she will not ordinarily be permitted to use transfer credits to meet core 
requirements. 

Residence Requirement: To qualify for graduation from Millsaps, 8 of the last 10 
course units of academic work must be done in residence as a degree-seeking student. 
An exception to this rule is the pre-engineering dual-degree program in which students 
may transfer back the equivalent of 8 courses. 

Additional Requirements for the Baclielor of Arts Degree 

Proficiency at the intermediate level of an ancient or modem foreign language as 
demonstrated by satisfactory completion of a 2000 course taken at Millsaps, or the

with the consent of the appropriate departments. 

Majors in accounting and business administration are only available with the BBA 
degree. The European Studies major is only available with the BA or BLS degree. All 
other majors are available with the BA, BS, or BLS degree. 

Specific requirements for the major can be found under the appropriate department of 
instruction. Students may major in a subject only with the consent of the department 
chair. They are expected to declare a major by the end of the sophomore year. All work 
to be applied toward the major must be approved in advance by the department chair or 
the student's major professor. 

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

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

A student must have a minimum of four courses in a department in order to qualify for 
a minor. A minimum of two courses applied toward the minor must be taken at Millsaps. 
Specific requirements for a particular minor can be found under the appropriate 
department of instruction. 



42 Curriculum 



Areas of Concentration: In addition to the major and minor, a student may have an area 
of concentration within a particular discipHne or among several disciphnes. Areas of 
concentration within the major are not entered on the student transcript. Interdisciph- 
nary concentrations are treated Hke a minor and are entered on the transcript. 

Comprehensive Examinations: Before receiving a bachelor' s degree the student must 
pass a satisfactory comprehensive 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 Xp 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 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 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 
requirements in their major department. They may take the examination in the spring 
semester if they are within one semester of graduation. 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 published in the college calendar. 
Comprehensive 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. 

Grade Point Index Required: An overall grade point index of 2.00 is required for 
graduation. Transfer students must have a minimum grade point index of 2.00 on their 
Millsaps work. The grade point index is calculated on the total number of courses 
attempted, including courses repeated for a better grade. (See Section on Grades, 
Honors, Class Standing.) 

Application for a Degree: Each student who is a candidate for a degree is required to 
submit a written application for the degree by November 1 of the academic year of 
graduation. This date also applies to students who plan to complete their work in the 
summer session. Forms for degree applications are available from the Office of Records. 

Requirements for a Second Degree: In order to earn a second degree from Millsaps 
College a student must have a minimum of eight additional course units beyond those 
required for the first degree, and with these additional course credits must meet all of the 
requirements for both the second degree and the second major. 



43 

Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental 

Students interested in medicine, dentistry, osteopathy, optometry, podiatry, or veteri- 
nary medicine are urged to consult with a member of the Pre-medical Advisory 
Committee in designing a program that will fit particular needs, background, and 
interest. Members of the committee have a reference listing the requirements and 
admission policies of all American allopathic (M.D.) schools. Information is also 
available for other medical programs, as well as nursing, occupational therapy, physical 
therapy, medical technology, and related fields. 

Early in the fall semester of the senior year, the student should arrange an interview with 
the Pre-medical Advisory Committee, which will evaluate the student's qualifications 
for medical study. This evaluation will be sent to the professional schools in which the 
student is interested. 

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 requirements. However, the 
following courses generally fulfill the entrance requirements of medical, dental, and 
related schools: 

Biology 1 year 

General inorganic chemistry 1 year 

Organic chemistry 1 year 

Physics I year 

Mathematics I year 

Additional advanced science is often required. 

Millsaps College and the majority of medical and dental schools strongly recommend 
that the student obtain a baccalaureate degree in an area of interest. It is not required that 
this degree be in a science, and students are encouraged to achieve a broad background 
in the humanities and social sciences, although the above listed requirements are 
generally immutable. The new Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) emphasizes 
the desirability of a broad reading background, and also requires writing an essay. 

These requirements are further addressed in meetings of pre-medical students held each 
semester. The pre-medical honorary. Alpha Epsilon Delta, also conducts meetings of 
interest to students in all health-related curricula. 

Admission to medical and dental programs is highly competitive. Success involves: 
-grade point average (both total and science/math) 
-score on the appropriate professional exam (e.g. MCAT, DAT) 
-faculty and pre-med committee recommendations 
-outside activities (including both campus and work experience) 
-a successful interview with the professional school. 

Combined research/professional programs are offered by many of these schools. 



44 Curriculum 



Pre-Ministerial 



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 social and behavioral 
sciences. No one major is best. Students considering a ministerial career should consult 
with the chair of the department of Religious Studies or the college chaplain as early as 
possible. Given the special challenges of the practice of ministry, students should plan 
to undertake professional education in a theological seminary. The best preparation for 
such professional education is an undergraduate education with breadth in the liberal 
arts. 



Pre-Law 

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) understanding of the institutions with which the law deals, 

(c) ability to think and analyze critically. 

Different students may obtain the desired training for these three areas from different 
courses. Therefore, students should consult with their faculty or major advisers in 
designing a program of courses that will best fit particular needs, background, and 
interests. In their junior year, students interested in law school should consult with the 
pre-law adviser regarding the taking of the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) and 
the law school application process. 

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- 
anthropology. Self and Society, Introduction to Anthropology, Comparative Family 
Systems and Social Stratification are essential. Other courses which are strongly 
recommended include Sociology of Human Interacting, Theories of Personality, and 
Social Psychology. Internships can provide valuable practical experience with commu- 
nity social welfare agencies. Students are urged to consult with their faculty advisers to 
plan a schedule. 

Programs for Teacher Certification 

The Millsaps Teacher Education Program is accredited by the National Council for the 
Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). 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 certification requirements are met. The Teacher 
Education Programs offer certification in Elementary Education, Secondary Education, 
and in select areas (K-12). In addition, Millsaps offers Dual Certification in Special 
Education. The Teacher Education Programs qualify the student for provisional teacher 



45 

certification as required by the Office of Teacher Certification and the Mississippi State 
Board of Education. After completing a certification program at Millsaps, the student 
will be prepared to pass the provisional year evaluation and receive the standard Class 
A certificate. 

Our certification program is fully integrated within the liberal arts curriculum of the 
College, and our professors teach in the liberal arts core curriculum as well. The 
streamlined and field-based program maximizes student time and potential. Students are 
encouraged to proceed through the certification process in a sequential manner. Teacher 
certification can be earned concurrently with any other major during the four year 
undergraduate experience. 

There are certain entrance standards which must be met prior to being fully admitted in 
the Department of Education. Entrance requirements include: completion of the core 
curriculum ( 1 -9), a minimum overall score of 2 1 on the American College Test (ACT) 
with no subscore lower than 18 upon entrance to college OR a minimum score of 860 
on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) upon entrance to college OR appropriate scores 
on the Professional Assessments for Beginning Teachers (PRAXIS), and a minimum 
grade point average of 2.5. Students must complete all application procedures with the 
Chair of the Department of Education. To receive the College's recommendation for 
teacher certification, the student must maintain a 2.5 GPA or above, score at the 
appropriate level on specified PRAXIS tests, and complete the Portfolio for Compre- 
hensive Examination with the Department of Education. 

Cooperative Programs 

Business Administration 

Major Plus Program in Business Administration: The Else School of Management 
offers a program designed to permit students pursuing degrees other than the BBA, 
particularly those working toward the BA, to complete the MBA at Millsaps with only 
one additional year of study beyond the bachelors degree program. The Major Plus 
program specifies certain courses from Else School offerings which students take as 
general electives during their bachelors program. These courses are: Principles of 
Economics, Introduction to the Legal Environment of Business, Business Statistics and 
Computing I and II, Survey of Accounting, Introduction to Management. Operations 
Management with Computing, Fundamentals of Marketing, and Principles of Corporate 
Finance. A non BBA student who successfully completes all of the prescribed courses 
will be in a position to earn the MBA by completing only the upper-level courses 
pertinent to that degree program. This can normally be done in one additional year of 
study at Millsaps. For details of the Major Plus program, contact the Director of 
Graduate Business Admissions in the Else School of Management. 

Engineering and Applied Science 

This program at Millsaps offers many opportunities for the student interested in 
engineering, applied science, management and business administration. With this 
cooperative 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. 



46 Curriculum 



3-2 BS Programs: Millsaps has agreements with four universities - Auburn, Columbia, 
Vanderbilt and Washington universities - by which a student may attend Millsaps for 
three years and then continue work at any of the schools listed above. The student then 
transfers a maximum of eight course credits 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 BS and MS Programs: The Columbia University Combined Plan also has 4-2 
programs in which a student attends Millsaps for four years, completing degree 
requirements and then spends two more years at Columbia to obtain a BS or MS degree 
from the Columbia School of Engineering and Applied Science. 

3-3 BS/MS and CS/MBA Programs: Washington University also has a combined 
Degree Program wherein the student spends three years at Millsaps and then spends 
three years at Washington University earning both the BS and MS from the School of 
Engineering and applied Science or both the BS from the School of Engineering and 
applied Science and the MBA from the Graduate School of Business Administration. 

A wide variety of programs are offered by the five participating universities, including 
financial aid for qualified students. For detailed descriptions of programs and financial 
aid, the interested student is urged to consult with the pre-engineering advisor. 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, material and mechanical 
engineering. It is also possible to obtain a BS in agricultural engineering. 

The Combined Plan Program at Columbia University offers BS and MS degrees in 
civil, electrical, industrial, mechanical, mining, nuclear, biological, chemical, metallur- 
gical and mineral engineering. Other programs include computer science, engineering 
mechanics, applied mathematics (BS only), applied physics, materials science, opera- 
tions research, sohd state science (MS only), chemical metallurgy, applied chemistry 
and materials science. 

Vanderbilt University offers bachelor of engineering degrees in chemical, civil, 
electrical and mechanical engineering. 

Washington University offers BS and MS programs in chemical, civil, electrical and 
mechanical engineering. Other programs include computer science, engineering and 
public policy, systems science and engineering, and business administration (MBA). 

Military Science 

A Military Science program is offered on the campus of Jackson State University under 
a cross-enrollment agreement between Millsaps College, Jackson State University, 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 University. 



jl 

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 Reserve, or the Army National Guard, 
concunent with the pursuit of an academic degree. The objectives of the program are; 

( 1 ) To provide an understanding of how the U.S. Army Reserve, 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 in the first two years and 
an advanced course of instruction in the final two years. In addition to the course of 
instruction, students are required to attend a leadership laboratory. 

There is no charge for enrolling in the ROTC Program; however, cadets must be 
admitted as full-time students before enrollment in ROTC. Books, equipment, and 
uniforms are free of charge to the students. Three-year and two-year ROTC scholarships 
are available and awarded on a competitive basis.

Special Programs 



Ford Fellows Program 

The Ford Fellows Program provides an opportunity for upperclass students with an 
interest in college teaching to work closely with a faculty member in their area of 
academic interest. Primary teaching under faculty supervision is encouraged as well as 
research and scholarship. Each student must submit an application, completed jointly 
with their proposed faculty mentor, to the program director early in the spring semester. 
Approximately twelve students are selected each year for participation in this program. 

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 program director in the fall of their junior year. 

The Washington Semester 

The Washington Semester is a joint arrangement between American University, 
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 acquaint- 
ing 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 participat- 
ing colleges spend a semester at the School of Government and Public Administration 
of the American University in Washington. They earn four courses of credit toward 
graduation. Two course credits are earned in a Conference Seminar, in which high- 
ranking leaders of politics and government meet with students. One course credit is 
earned in a research course, which entails the writing of a paper by utilizing the sources 
available only at the nation's capital. An additional course credit is earned in an 
Internship, in which the student is placed in a government or public interest organization 
office. 

PubHc 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 experience 
in management through an estabhshed Internship Program. The program involves 
prominent regional and national business organizations and agencies of the state 
government. The student' s training is conducted and supervised by competent manage- 
ment personnel according to a predetermined agenda of activities. Evaluation of the 
student's participation and progress provides the basis for granting appropriate aca- 
demic credit.

Grade points earned in fractional course units are that fraction of those awarded for a 
corresponding grade in a course unit. A grade point average is determined by dividing 
the total number of grade points by the number of academic courses taken. 

Class Standing 

The following number of courses is required: 

For sophomore rating 7 course units 

For junior rating 15 course units 

For senior rating 23 course units 

A student's classification is determined at the beginning of the fall and spring semester. 



55 

Student Status 

Degree-seeking students taking 3 or more course units will be classified as full-time 
students. 

Degree-seeking students taking fewer than 3 course units will be classified as part-time 
students. 

A nondegree 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. Nondegree students 
observe the same regulations concerning attendance, examination and proficiency as 
regular students. 

Credit/No Credit Grade Option 

With the approval of the instructor, some courses may be taken for credit/no credit. 
Students must indicate their intention to take a course for credit/no credit at the time of 
registration. Credit/no credit grading requires full participation of the student in all class 
activities. Credit signifies work of passing quality or above, though it carries no grade 
points. Core courses and courses taken to meet additional degree requirements may not 
be taken for credit/no credit. Courses required for a student's major ordinarily may not 
be taken for credit/no credit. No more than two course units graded credit/no credit may 
be included in the 32 course units required for graduation. 

Repeat Courses 

A student may enroll in a course at Millsaps which has previously been taken. A course 
previously taken at Millsaps may also be repeated at another institution with the prior 
approval of the registrar in consultation with the appropriate department chair. When a 
course is repeated, no additional course credit is earned, but all grades are calculated into 
the cumulative grade point average. All grades reported for the course remain a part of 
the permanent academic record. Millsaps does not guarantee the availability of courses 
for repeat credit. 

Graduation Witli Distinction 

A student whose grade point average is 3.5 for the entire course shall be graduated Cum 
Laude; one whose grade point average is 3.7 shall be graduated Magna Cum Laude: and 
one whose grade point average 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 16 course units in Millsaps College. 

In determining eligibility for distinction for students who have not done all their college 
work at Millsaps, the grade 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 
average both on the work done at Millsaps and on college courses as a whole. 

Graduation With Honors 

A student who successfully completes the Honors Program in a selected field of study, 
which need not be in the student's major, receives the designation "with honors" in that 
field at graduation. 

A degree-seeking student with junior standing and a 3.3 grade point average may apply 
to a faculty member for permission to undertake an honors project. In the fall semester 
of the junior year, the student submits an honors project agreement to the Honors 
Program director. Upon approval of the director, the student enrolls for the spring 
semester in a directed study course. Honors Research I. For the fall semester of the senior 



56 Administration of the Curriculum 



year, the student enrolls in Honors Research H, but completes the bulk of the work before 
that time in order to be able to defend the thesis to the student's defense committee in the 
fall. A letter grade is assigned for each of these two courses. For the spring semester of 
the senior year, the student enrolls in the Honors Colloquium (LS 4000), designed to 
bring together all students in the program for intellectual exchange. 

The honors candidate who successfully presents and defends the thesis, who completes 
the colloquium, who has an overall 3.3 grade average, and who has a 3.33 grade average 
in the three honors courses will graduate with honors. 

A student may voluntarily withdraw candidacy for honors at any time. Regular college 
regulations apply in the matter of dropping a course and receiving course credit. 

Election to Phi Beta Kappa 

The Phi Beta Kappa chapter at Millsaps elects members from the graduating class each 
spring. To be considered for election to membership in Phi Beta Kappa, a student must 
meet the following criteria: 

1. Completion of requirements for a BA, BS or BLS degree with a liberal arts or 
sciences major. (At least three-fourths of the work required for the degree must 
be in the liberal arts and sciences.) 

2. A minimum of one-half of the work required for graduation completed at 
Millsaps. 

3. One course in mathematics, calculus or above, and one course in a foreign 
language at the intermediate level or above. 

4. A minimum grade point average of 3.7 based on seven or more semesters. 
(Grades earned in applied or professional work are not counted in computing 
GPA for the purpose of election to Phi Beta Kappa.) 

Transfer students must meet the required grade point average both on work done at 
Millsaps and on their college work as a whole. No more than 10 percent of the liberal 
arts and science graduates may be elected to membership from a graduating class. 

Election to Beta Gamma Sigma 

Beta Gamma Sigma is the national honor society for business programs accredited by 
the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business. Students are elected each 
spring. To be considered for membership in Beta Gamma Sigma, an undergraduate 
must: 

1. pursue the Bachelor of Business Administration degree, 

2. be of high moral character, 

3 . be in the upper seven percent of the junior class or upper ten percent of the senior 
class, and 

4. be approved by the nominating committee. 

The cumulative grade point average is used to determine class rank. No more than 10 
percent of the BB A graduates may be elected to membership from a graduating class. 

Dean's List 

At the end of the fall and spring semester, the Dean's List is issued and consists of those 
students who for that semester: 

(a) earned at least 3 course units. 

(b) earned a grade point average of at least 3.5 for that semester. 

(c) earned grades of C or higher in each course. 

(d) met the standard, in the judgment of the dean, of being a good citizen of the 
College community. 



57 

Course Load 

Four course units per semester is considered the normal load for full-time students. In 
order to be classified as a full-time student, one must take no fewer than 3 course units. 
However, a graduating senior taking all work required to complete the degree require- 
ments, in their last semester, may be counted as full-time w ith fewer than three course 
units except for financial aid purposes. 

Students are not encouraged to take more than 4 1/4 course units of academic work 
unless they have a grade point average of 2.5 on the last semester. No student may take 
more than 4 1/2 course units without a grade point average of 3.0 on the last semester 
and permission from the dean. A student will ordinarily not be permitted to register for 
more than 5 course units in a semester. 

Administrative Regulations 

Schedule Changes 

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. 

A student cannot change classes, drop classes or take up new classes except by the 
consent of the faculty adviser or the dean. If courses are dropped prior to the last day to 
drop courses without penalty, then the dropped courses will not appear on the student's 
record. Courses dropped after this date are recorded as WP (withdrawn passing) or WF 
(withdrawn failing). There is a published date, following mid-term grades, after which 
it is no longer possible to drop a course without the approval of the dean. Students who 
drop a course without securing the required approvals will receive an F. 

Withdrawal 

A student desiring to withdraw from the college within any term must obtain permission 
from the dean and file a withdrawal form. No refund will be considered unless this 
written notice is procured and presented to the Business Office. Refunds will be made 
according to the policy outlined under the Financial Regulations section. 

A student who withdraws with permission after the last day to drop courses is recorded 
as WP (withdrawn passing) or WF (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 Probation 

Students who earn in any semester a grade point average of less than 1 .5 will be placed 
on academic probation. A student may be removed from academic probation by earning 
a 2.0 grade point average during a regular semester or a summer session at Millsaps 
College provided that the student completes at least three course units and has an 
acceptable cumulative average. 



58 Administration of the Curriculum 



Academic Suspension 

A student on academic probation for two consecutive semesters will be placed on 
academic suspension. A student may also be placed on academic suspension if 
satisfactory progress has not been made toward a degree. Satisfactory progress is 
defined as maintaining: 

1 .5 cumulative grade point average when seven courses have been attempted, or 
1 . 8 cumulative grade point average when more than seven courses and less than 1 5 courses 

have been attempted, or 
2.0 cumulative grade point average when greater than 15 courses have been attempted, or 
2.0 cumulative grade point average after senior status has been obtained. 

Students who have been suspended may petition the dean of the college in writing for 
readmission. The first suspension will ordinarily be for the duration of one semester, the 
second suspension for a full academic year. Students seeking readmission should apply 
as soon as possible in order to assure sufficient time to fulfill whatever requirements may 
be necessary for readmission to be granted. 

Unsatisfactory Academic Progress 

A part-time student who makes a grade point average of less than 1 .5 in any semester 
will be notified that he or she is making unsatisfactory academic progress. To be 
removed from that classification the student must make a 2.0 grade point average during 
a regular 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 counsehng 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 
instructor, or when in danger of failing the course. 

The 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 "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 College and the 
particular policies operative in each class. Further details relating to attendance are in 
the student handbook, Major Facts. 



59 

Permission to make up an examination or alter the time for an examination may be 
granted only through the dean of the college. Any special examination, 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 instructor 
may petition the 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. 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. 

Senior Exemptions 

Students may elect to be exempt from final examinations only in the semester in which 
they complete their comprehensive examinations, and 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 exempt from 
any examination in more than one term or semester. 

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. 

Honor Code 

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. Through their Honor Code, members of the 
Millsaps community, faculty and students, affirm their adherence to these basic ethical 
principles. 

An Honor Code is not simply a set of rules and procedures governing students' academic 
conduct. It is an opportunity to put personal responsibility and integrity into action. 
When students agree to abide by the Honor Code, they liberate themselves to pursue their 
academic goals in an atmosphere of mutual confidence and respect. 

The success of the code depends upon the support of each member of the community. 
Smdents and faculty alike commit themselves in their work to the principles of academic 
honesty. When they become aware of infractions, both students and faculty are obligated 
to report them to the Honor Council which is responsible for enforcement. 

The Millsaps Honor Code was adopted by the student body and approved by the faculty 
and Board of Trustees in 1994. 

Student Behavior 

The College has the responsibihty and authority to establish standards for scholarship, 
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, decorous and upright conduct as long as he/ 
she remains a member of the college community, whether he or she be within its 



60 Administration of the Curriculum 



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 entry 
to or use of college facilities. 

The College expects students to be concerned with the physical and psychological well- 
being of others and cannot condone behavior which exploits another individual. 
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 alcohohc beverages, (which shall include, but not be 
Umited 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 condone 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 accordance 
with the state law which prohibits the drinking of 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 
ordinances. 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 faciUties 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 pubhc 
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. 

Illegal Substances 

The College cannot condone violations of federal, state or local laws regarding any 
illegal drugs, narcotics and dangerous substances. The use, possession or distribution of 
such substances, except as expressly permitted by law, are not permitted. 

Disciplinary Regulations 

Students guilty of serious infractions of College regulations may be subject to disciplin- 
ary action including: social probation, disciplinary probation, suspension or expulsion 



67 

at the discretion of the Judicial Council, the vice president for enrollment and student 
affairs or the president of the College dependent upon the original jurisdiction. Cases 
involving a recommendation of suspension or expulsion 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 responsibility 
to himself/herself and the College. 

When a student is placed on social probation he/she is prohibited from participating in 
extracurricular campus activities such a 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 expulsion, 
thai 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 or expul- 
sion. 

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, parents are 
notified and asked to come to the campus for a conference with the President and an 
associate dean of students. 

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

Requirements for Major: Students may complete a major in French or in Spanish with 
a minimum of nine courses in the same language. They are, however, encouraged to 
take eleven or more. To major in a modem language, students must successfully 
complete at least seven courses beyond the basic level. Of the courses for the major, 
at least two must be literature courses - preferably the two survey courses - taken at 
Millsaps. No more than four language courses taken abroad may count towards the 
major. 

Requirements for Minor: Students may elect a minor in French, German, or Spanish. 
Students are encouraged to take eight courses, but a minimum of six courses in the 
same language is required. To minor in a modem language, students must success- 
fully complete at least four courses beyond the basic level. Of the courses for the 
minor, at least one must be a literature course. All courses beyond the intermediate 
level must be taken at Millsaps. 

Placement in Modern Languages: Since proficiency in a language can be both a 
culturally beneficial and financially rewarding skill, students are encouraged to take 
advantage of the opportunity to leam a language well. To help decide the level at 
which students should study a modem language, the department gives a standard 
placement test. All students who have previously studied a language and wish to 
study that same language at Millsaps must take this test. They may only take the test 
once. Students beginning a new language are not required to take this placement test. 
To satisfy the language requirement for the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Liberal 
Studies degree, students must demonstrate proficiency at the intermediate level (that 
is, score high enough on the placement test to show that their proficiency is equal to 



72 

that of Millsaps students who have successfully completed our Intermediate course) 
or present transcripts verifying that they have completed the equivalent of Millsaps' 
Basic and Intermediate language courses in a specific language. 

By taking this placement test and scoring high enough to demonstrate proficiency 
at the intermediate level, students can satisfy the language requirement (that is, they 
will not be required to take the Basic and Intermediate courses). No academic credit, 
however, is awarded via the test. Those demonstrating proficiency at the intermedi- 
ate level are encouraged to continue their study of the language by taking advanced 
courses. 

Students whose score places them at the beginning of the intermediate level must 
take and successfully complete the Intermediate course. Those whose score places 
them below the intermediate level will be required to take the Basic courses and the 
Intermediate course in order to satisfy the language requirement. 

Students must take the prerequisites for each modem language course, or be placed 
into the course via the department's standard placement test; otherwise, credit will 
not be given for the more advanced course for which the prerequisite is listed. 

International Stiidy: Before taking language courses abroad, students are encouraged 
to consult with the department chair. For further information about international 
study opportunities, see section on International Study.

Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) 

Educational Goals: The curriculum of the Bachelor of Business Administration degree 
(BBA) is designed to provide an educational base for a lifetime of learning to enable 
each student to realize his or her potential. To accomplish this mission, educational 
goals have been identified to develop in each student: 1) a management outlook 
toward organizations and the ability to work with others to accomplish common goals; 
2) the ability to organize information for analysis and decision making; 3) an 
understanding of the standards of professional behavior which are consistent with

leadership; 5) an understanding of innovation and the importance of agents of change 
in society; 6) a global perspective; and 7) an understanding of the changing societal, 
political, legal, and cultural environments that organizations face. 

Degree Requirements: Students major in either accounting or business administration 
to earn a BBA degree. The BBA academic program is a three-year, integrated body 
of study. Since the program is integrated, the courses are sequenced so that each 
course is taught with the assumption that the students in the class have a common 
academic background. To insure educational diversity, at least 16 courses must be 
non-business courses. Up to 2.25 economics courses may be considered as non- 
business courses. 

Foundation Prerequisites: Students pursuing the BBA should complete College 
Algebra, Survey of Calculus (or Precalculus followed by Analytical Geometry and 
Calculus I, or a higher level mathematics course) during their freshman year.

of eight course credits, are required of all BBA students in addition to the courses 
required for the particular major, business administration or accounting. The business 
administration major includes the BBA core courses plus Business Strategy and three 
Else School elective courses for a total of twelve course credits. Students planning

evaluated on an individual basis by the appropriate Else School committee. For 
business administration majors. Business Strategy must be taken at Millsaps; and for 
accounting majors, at least three of the accounting courses required in the major must 
be taken at Millsaps. Ordinarily, course work taken more than six years prior to

institution other than Millsaps must do so at an AACSB accredited institution and 
have approval from the Dean of the Else School of Management. All students are

requirement. In general, the MAcc program involves a fifth year of study beyond the 
accounting major BBA degree. Students who plan to seek the MAcc degree should 
pursue the basic accounting major as outlined above. For more details about the MAcc 
program, see any member of the accounting faculty and other college publications. 

Student's Guide to Earning a BBA 

The following is a four-year curriculum typical of Millsaps students majoring in
