Parking Regulations 

The Automobile Parking Regulations are for the purpose of 
protecting the appearance of our campus as well as for personal 
safety and convenience. These regulations, which have been in 
operation for the past several years, have been found very bene- 
ficial to our campus. The following are the regulations proposed 
by our Campus Parking Committee and approved by the Adminis- 

Automobiles MUST NOT be PARKED OR STOPPED on any 

of the campus roads except to take on or discharge passengers. 
Hanging on cars is positively prohibited. Fast driving and round- 
ing curves at a high rate of speed is not permitted. Blowing horns 

in front of buildings disturbs class activity and is prohibited. 

Spaces to be used by the students for the parking of auto- 
mobiles are designated as follows: 

Women: Parking area north of University Lane and adjacent to 
the walk leading to Gerneaux Hall, except spaces No. 200-240 
inclusive, 272-310 inclusive. Parking area rear of girls' dormi- 
tories, Gerneaux Hall, and Practice House. 

Men and Women Students: Parking area in rear of Silvester and 
Calvert Halls, except spaces 482-499 inclusive. Parking area 
between Gymnasium and Silvester Hall. Parking area at 
Gymnasium except spaces 700-705 inclusive. 

Temporary Parking 

Men and Women: Students and employees MUST NOT park in 
visitors' spaces, front of Agriculture building; nor in any place 
not designated as a student parking place. 

Maryland State Officers have been detailed to assist in main- 
taining these regulations, which are essential for maintenance of 
property, convenience, and personal safety. Any student who fails 
to observe these regulations may be deprived of the use of his car 
and driving privileges on the campus, and continued violation may 
mean suspension from the University. 

The responsibility for parked cars rests with the car owner. 

Supt. of Bldgs. and Grounds.

The twenty-second session of the Summer School of the University of 
Maryland will open Wednesday, June 24th, 1936, and continue for six weeks, 
ending Tuesday, August 4th. 

In order that there may be thirty class periods for each full course, 
classes will be held on Saturday, June 27th, to make up for time lost on 
registration day. There will be no classes or other collegiate activities 
held on July 4th, which will be observed as a legal holiday. 

The courses are planned to meet the needs of teachers in service and of 
students desiring to satisfy the requirements for undergraduate and 
graduate degrees. 


The University is located at College Park in Prince George*s County, 
eight miles from Washington and thirty-two miles from Baltimore. College 
Park is a station on the B. & O. R. R. and on the City and Suburban Electric 
Railway. Local and inter-urban bus lines pass the University. Washington, 
with its wealth of resources for casual visitation, study, and recreation is 
easily accessible. 


Teachers and special students not seeking degrees are admitted to the 
courses of the Summer Session for which they are qualified. 

The admission requirements for those who desire to become candidates 
for degrees are the same as for any other session of the University. Before 
registering, a candidate for a degree will be required to consult the Dean 
of the College in which he seeks a degree. 

Graduates of accredited Normal Schools with satisfactory normal school 
records may be admitted to advanced standing in the College of Education. 
The objectives of the individual student determine the exact amount of 
credit allowed. The student is given individual counsel and advice as to 
the best procedure for fulfilling the requirements for a degree. 


The semester hour is the unit of credit, as in other sessions of the Uni- 
versity. A semester credit hour is one lecture or recitation a week for a 
semester, which is approximately seventeen weeks in length. Two or three 
hours of laboratory or field work are counted as equivalent to one lecture 
or recitation. During the summer session a lecture course meeting five times 
a week for six weeks requiring the standard amount of outside work, is 
given a weight of two semester hours. 

In exceptional cases, the credit allowance of a course may be increased on 
account of additional individual work. This must be arranged with the 
instructor at time of registration and approved by the Director. 


Students who are matriculated as candidates for degrees will be credited 
towards the appropriate degree for satisfactory completion of courses 
' Teachers and other students not seeking degrees -^^J^^T^^^^^^^^^^^^ 
Dorts specifying the amount and quality of work completed. These reports 
wm be acceptelby the Maryland State Department of Education and by the 
iopriate'educaUon authorities in other States for the exten-n ^^^^ re- 
newal of certificates in accordance with their laws and regulations. 


The courses for elementary school teachers are P^f ^f J^^J^ ^^^ J^^^^^^^ 
ence to the needs of teachers now holding the Maryland First Grade Certifi- 
Z: who wL to qualify by Summer School attendance for t^^M.^r^^^^ 
First Grade Certificate. Both in subject matter and m treatment these 
rrrses are in advance of the courses required for the two-year norma 

clTcuSculum. Students desiring to work for the ^i^^er -r^^^^^^^^^ ^^ 
be given individual assistance in planning their programs not only for this 
summer session but also in anticipation of later sessions. 


Six semester hours is the standard load for the Summer Session Stu- 
dents are strongly advised to limit themselves to the standard load Special 
permission will be required for a program of more than six ^emestj hours 
(See also under expenses.) The program of every elementary school teacher 
should include at least one content course. Teachers should be careful not 
to elect courses that they have had in previous attendance at summer 

schools. ^ 

Regularly registered students who wish to attend a course or a part of 
a course without doing the work connected therewith are permitted to enroll 
as auditors with the consent of the instructor in charge and approval of the 


Wednesday, June 24th, is Registration Day. Students should register on 
or before this date and be ready for class work on the morning of Thursday, 
June 25th. It is possible to register in advance and reserve rooms by apply- 
ing to the Director of the Summer School. 

Students living in the vicinity may register in person Monday and Tues- 
day preceding the regular registration day. 

Students may not register after Saturday, June 27th, --f^y special 
permission of the Director and the payment of a fee of $2.00 for late 

registration. . 

All course cards for work in the Summer School must be countersigned 
by the Director or Registration Adviser before they are presented m the 

Registrar's office. • ,. 4? 

When registration is completed each student should have a receipt for 
fees paid and class cards— one for each class. 



A student desiring to withdraw from a course for which he has registered 
will apply to the Director for a withdrawal permit. 

Unless otherwise stated, courses listed will be offered in 1936. In gen- 
eral, courses for which less than five students apply will not be given. Such 
courses will be held open until the end of the first week, June 27th, at which 
time it will be determined by the Director whether they will be given. 


Special arrangements have been made for persons wishing to do graduate 
work in summer. The Master's degree represents full time work for one 
academic year. The minimum credit requirement is 24 semester hours in 
courses approved for graduate credits, in addition to a thesis. The mini- 
mum residence requirement is attendance at four Summer Sessions. By 
carrying six semester hours of graduate work for four sessions and upon 
submitting a satisfactory thesis students may be granted the degree of 
Master of Arts or Master of Science. In some instances a fifth summer 
may be required in order that a satisfactory thesis may be completed. 
Teachers and other graduate students working for a degree on the summer 
plan must meet the same requirements and proceed in the same way as 
do students enrolled in the other sessions of the University. Those seeking 
the Master's degree as qualification for the State High School Principars 
Certificate should include in their twenty-four semester hours approxi- 
mately eight hours of "advanced study related to high school branches." 

In a number of departments courses are scheduled for a series of years, 
thus enabling students whose major or minor subjects are in these de- 
partments, to plan their work in orderly sequence. 

Full information in regard to general regulations governing graduate 
work may be had by waiting to the Registrar for The Graduate School An- 

Those expecting to register as graduate students should bring with them 
transcripts of their undergraduate records. 

Certain special regulations governing graduate work in Education on 
the Summer plan are made available to students at time of registration. 
Each graduate student in Education should have a copy. 


Students are accommodated in the University dormitories up to the ca- 
pacity of the dormitories. The charge for rooms is as follows: 

Calvert Hall (Men) „ $ 9.00 

Margaret Brent Hall (Women) 12.00 

New Dormitory (Women) „ 12.00 

Rooms may be reserved in advance, but will not be held later than noon of 
Thursday, June 25th. As the number of rooms is limited, early applica- 
tion to the Director for reservations is advisable. Requests for room res- 
ervations must be accompanied with a deposit of $3.00. Checks should be 


made pavable to University of Maryland. This fee of $3.00 will be deducted 
from charge for room rent when the student registers; if he fails to occupy 
the room, the fee will be forfeited, unless application for refund is received 
by Monday, June 22nd. 

The University dormitories will not be open for occupancy until the morn- 
ing of June 24th. 

Students attending the Summer School and occupying rooms in the dor- 
mitories will provide themselves with towels, pillows, pillow cases, sheets 
and blankets. 

Trunks should be marked plainly with name and address (dormitory and 
room number) if rooms have been assigned in advance. Trunks are trans- 
ported from the railroad station to dormitories by University tinicks at a 
charge of 50 cents each. Trunks sent by express should be prepaid. 

Students who prefer to room off the campus, or who cannot be accommo- 
dated in the dormitory, may find accommodations in boarding houses m 
College Park and in private homes in College Park and the nearby towns of 
Berwyn, Riverdale, and Hyattsville. 

The University, however, assumes no responsibility for rooms and board 
offered to summer session patrons outside of the University dormitories 
and dining room. 


Board is furnished at the College Dining Hall to all students desiring 
this service Food is chosen and meals are planned with strict regard to 
health, nutrition, and attractiveness. Milk is furnished by the University 
herd Plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, and ice cream are found on all 
menus Self-service is used in order to permit a wide choice of foods at 
minimum cost. Students so desiring may have meals at a flat rate of $40 
for the six weeks. The dining hall will also be open for a la carte service 
to students not availing themselves of the reduced flat rate. 

A Combination Plan provides Room and Board, at reduced rates as 

follows : 

Board and Room in Calvert Hall (Men) $45.00 

Board and Room in Margaret Brent Hall (Women) 50.00 

Board and Room in New Dormitory (Women) 50.00 


The special fees ordinarily required in higher institutions, such as reg- 
istration fee, library fee, health service fee, and the like, are covered m the 
"General Fee" which is paid by all students.

The general fee of $16.50 entitles a student to the normal load of six 
semester hours. For each semester hour in excess of six, an additional fee 
of $4.00 will be charged. 

Audition courses are charged at the same rate as courses taken for credit 
except that no charge is made to students who have paid the general fee for 
six semester hours. Consent of instructor concerned, however, should al- 
ways be obtained. 

A special fee, which is specified in the descriptions of certain courses, is 
charged for the use of laboratory and other materials. 

One-half of the fees, including laboratory fees, must be paid upon reg- 
istration, and the remainder at the beginning of the third week of the term. 

Expenses for Graduate Students — The fees for graduate students are the 
same as for other students, except that the non-resident fee does not apply 
to graduate students. 

Attendance Oflficers' Course — The expenses for this course, July 13-81, 
inclusive, are: General Fee $8.50, and exactly one-half of the rates sched- 
uled above for board and room.

will be made as follows: 

For withdrawal within five days full refund of general fee and laborar 
tory fees, with a deduction of $2.00 to cover cost of registration. Refunds 
for board and lodging will be pro-rated.
