2 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

Introduction 

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign was founded in 1867 as a state-supported, 
land-grant institution with a threefold mission of teaching, research, and public service. 
During its history, the University has earned a reputation as an institution of international 
stature. It is recognized for the high quality of its academic programs and the outstanding 
facilities and resources it makes available to students and faculty. Scholars and educators rank 
it among a select group of the world's great universities. 

THE CAMPUS 

Located in the adjoining cities of Champaign and Urbana (combined population 100,000), 
approximately 130 miles south of Chicago, the University and its surrounding communities 
offer a cultural and recreational environment ideally suited to the work of a major research 
institution. 

Close proximity by air, rail, bus, or car to Chicago and ready access to major cities on both 
coasts through daily flights to and from the University's Willard Airport make it possible to 
maintain the close contact with major cultural centers that is essential to the intellectual life of 
an international university. 

The University is a residential campus of classrooms, laboratories, libraries, residence halls, 
and recreational and cultural facilities, with 180 major buildings on the central campus of 705 
acres. 

Nearly every facility on campus is accessible to the physically disabled, and the University's 
programs and services for the disabled have served as models worldwide. 

COLLEGES AND SCHOOLS 

Eight undergraduate colleges and one school offer 1 50 programs of study leading to baccalau- 
reate degrees. They are the Colleges of Agriculture, Applied Life Studies, Commerce and 
Business Administration, Communications, Education, Engineering, Fine and Applied Arts, 
and Liberal Arts and Sciences, and the School of Social Work. A certificate program is offered 
by the Institute of Aviation. Postbaccalaureate students study in more than 1 00 fields through 
the Graduate College and in professional programs through the Colleges of Law, Medicine, 
and Veterinary Medicine. National surveys consistently rank the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign among the top ten institutions in many fields of study, with several 
colleges and departments ranked among the top five. 

STUDENT BODY 

There are approximately 35,000 students and 10,800 faculty and staff members in the Univer- 
sity community. About 26,000 undergraduates (56 percent male, 44 percent female), typically 
from every state in the union and about 100 foreign countries, enroll each year; 94 percent of 
the undergraduates are Illinois residents. Minority students make up about 13 percent of the 
total enrollment. 

Undergraduate education is strongly emphasized, and admissions are very competitive. 
The median ACT composite score of entering freshmen is 27, and more than 25 percent of these 
students ranked in the top 3 percent of their high school classes. The majority of transfer 
students enter the University with 4.0 grade-point averages (A = 5.0). 

Approximately 100 freshmen are selected annually to join the Campus Honors Program as 
Chancellor's Scholars. The program fosters close, collaborative relationships between top 
students and distinguished faculty members through special honors sections, faculty mentors, 
and summer research opportunities. 

Most undergraduate students receive baccalaureate degrees after four years, and many go 
on to advanced study in the humanities, the sciences, the social sciences, and various 
professional fields. Typically, 80 percent of the graduates who apply to law school are 
accepted; 65 percent are accepted to medical school. 



INTRODUCTION 



FACULTY 

Scores of faculty members are members of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the 
National Academy of Sciences, and the National Academy of Engineering. Eight scientists 
received the National Medal of Science while on the faculty. The late Professor Emeritus John 
Bardeen won the Nobel Prize in physics twice — the only person ever to do so. Twenty-six 
faculty members have received the Presidential Young Investigators Award, established by 
Congress to support research by faculty members near the beginning of their academic careers. 

FACILITIES 

The University Library has the third largest collection of any academic library in the nation, 
with more than 7 million bound volumes and over 1 3 million total items. There are thirty-eight 
departmental libraries across the campus, in addition to the main Library and the Undergraduate 
Library. 

The University attracts more than $170 million each year in private, state, and federal grants 
and contract appropriations. In recent years, a significant amount of this support has been 
directed toward the creation and development of major centers, for advanced research and 
study, including more than $100 million for the National Center for Supercomputing Appli- 
cations and the Center for Supercomputing Research and Development. Together these two 
centers have established the University as a recognized world leader in the fields of 
supercomputing architecture, design, and applications. In 1985, the University was the 
recipient of the largest single gift ever made by an individual to a public university — $40 
million from University alumnus Arnold O. Beckman for the establishment of the Beckman 
Institute for Advanced Science and Technology. In 1989, the University formally opened the 
Beckman Institute, where interdisciplinary research is conducted on human and artificial 
intelligence. 

A major center for the arts, the campus attracts dozens of nationally and internationally 
renowned artists each year to its widely acclaimed Krannert Center for the Performing Arts. 
The Krannert Center offers more than 320 performances each year, including those by major 
symphony orchestras, classical and modern ballet troupes, and individual artists such as 
Luciano Pavarotti, Jean-Pierre Rampal, and Isaac Stern. 

The University also supports three major museums: the Krannert Art Museum, second only 
to Chicago's Art Institute among Illinois public museums in the size and value of its collections; 
the World Heritage Museum; and the Natural History Museum. 

The Illini Union is a common meeting place for students, faculty, staff, and visitors to eat, 
play, study, and relax. It contains cafeteria and dining facilities, guest rooms, art galleries, 
reading and television rooms, billiards and electronic game rooms, bowling lanes, a ticket and 
check-cashing counter, the alumni office, and a paperback book sales center. 

The University's Intramural-Physical Education Building is one of the world's largest 
structures for university intramural sports and recreational facilities. 

The Assembly Hall holds the distinction of being the world's second largest edge-support 
dome. It has a permanent seating capacity of 16,000, and is used for Big Ten basketball games, 
performances by touring companies, concerts, conventions, convocations, and other activities. 

Memorial Stadium, with a seating capacity of 76,000, is home for Fighting Illini football and 
track and field events. 

Willard Airport serves commercial, general, and private aviation, and houses the Institute 
of Aviation. Located six miles southwest of campus, the airport is also a center for research, 
education, and military aviation. The University of Illinois holds the only Federal Aviation 
Administration (FAA) Airman (Pilot) Examining Agency Certificate in the country, which 
permits it to issue pilot certificates and ratings to its graduates on behalf of the FAA. 

COURSES AND CLASS SIZE 

More than 4,000 courses are available, although some may not be offered every semester. 
About 80 percent of all class sections have fewer than thirty students; 46 percent have fewer 
than twenty. 



UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



ACADEMIC CALENDAR 

The campus has an academic calendar of two sixteen-week semesters and one eight-week 
summer session. A program of intensive instruction called Intersession is held between the 
spring semester and the eight-week summer session. The fall semester begins in late August 
and ends in mid-December; the spring semester begins in early January and ends in early May. 
The summer session extends from early June to early August. Classes are taught during the 
hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; a few evening classes are conducted, primarily for graduate 
students. 

STUDENT ACTIVITIES 

One of the distinct advantages of a large university is that students with varying interests can 
find many avenues for expression. At the Urbana-Champaign campus, there are about 750 
registered student organizations. 

Approximately 20 percent of the undergraduate students are actively affiliated with the 
Greek system, the largest fraternity and sorority system in the nation with fifty fraternities and 
twenty-five sororities. 

All three branches of the armed services have Reserve Officers' Training Corps units on 
campus. 

Students have the opportunity to participate in performances by eleven different choral 
groups, five bands plus the Marching Illini, three orchestras, five jazz bands, innumerable 
small ensembles, and even a Russian-style balalaika orchestra. Each year, Illinois Opera 
Theatre stages full-length operas , operettas, and opera scene programs. Athletics provide 
another avenue of enjoyment outside the classroom. The campus intramural program is the 
largest in the nation, with 75 percent of all students participating. 

The campus is a member of the Big Ten Intercollegiate Conference, and in recent years its 
athletic programs have achieved national stature in a number of men's and women's sports. 
The Fighting Illini, in orange and blue, field eleven men's teams and eight women's teams. 
Men's intercollegiate sports include baseball, basketball, cross-country, fencing, football, golf, 
gymnastics, swimming/diving, tennis, track and field, and wrestling. The women's program 
includes basketball, cross-country, golf, gymnastics, swimming /diving, tennis, track and 
field, and volleyball. 

CAMPUS VISITORS CENTER 

Prospective students and their parents are invited to visit the campus and participate in small 
group information sessions at the Campus Visitors Center. The center is open from 9:00 a.m. 
to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, excluding campus holidays. Presentations are made by 
staff members of the Office of Admissions and Records, and arrangements can be made to meet 
with admission counselors and with representatives from specific academic units, the Offices 
of Student Financial Aid, and the Housing Division. The Campus Visitors Center is located in 
the Levis Faculty Center, 919 West Illinois Street, one block west of Lincoln Avenue in Urbana. 
Student-conducted tours of the campus are available when classes are in session and 
weather permits. Reservations are recommended and may be made by calling the Campus 
Visitors Center, (217) 333-0824.

Since the information in this two-year catalog is subject to change, prospective applicants 
should contact the Office of Admissions and Records at the address on the inside back cover 
for admission requirements and applications for a specific term. A complete listing of fields of 
study and their admission requirements is given in the booklet Undergraduate Admissions In- 
formation, available with application materials each September from the Office of Admissions 
and Records; Illinois high school students may obtain these materials from their high school 
counselors. 

Admission counselors on campus in 177 Henry Administration Building are available for 
consultation on weekdays, excluding campus holidays, from 8:30 a.m. to noon and from 1:00 
to 4:30 p.m. Appointments are recommended and can be made by calling (21 7) 333-0302. The 
Campus Visitors Center offers campus tours and informational sessions for prospective 
students and their families. (See page 4.) 

UNDERGRADUATE STUDY OPPORTUNITIES 

An undergraduate applicant to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign may choose a 
field of interest from more than 150 programs of study. These programs are referred to 
throughout this catalog as majors, options, or curricula, and are explained in detail in the 
individual college sections found elsewhere in this catalog. 

In addition to the specific degree programs offered by all colleges, the College of Liberal Arts 
and Sciences offers preprofessional education for the fields of ad vertising, dentistry, journahsm, 
law, medical dietetics, medical laboratory sciences, medical record administration, medicine, 
nursing, occupational therapy, pharmacy, physical therapy, social work, and veterinary 
medicine. 

Teacher education curricula are available in the Colleges of Agriculture, Applied Life 
Studies, Education, Fine and Applied Arts, and Liberal Arts and Sciences. 

UNDERGRADUATE ENROLLMENT CONSIDERATIONS 

The number of admissions to each undergraduate college and curriculum is carefully moni- 
tored to ensure that no more students are enrolled than the faculty and facilities can support. 
Each prospective student appHes for admission to one of the eight undergraduate colleges, the 
School of Social Work, or the Institute of Aviation, and to only one curriculum within that 
college, school, or institute. 



10 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

Because admission is highly competitive and course requirements differ by college and 
curriculum, each applicant's initial choice of college and curriculum is important and should 
be carefully considered in consultation with counselors and parents. Due to the great interest 
in admission to all programs, there usually is not an opportunity for a student to ask for 
reconsideration of admission for an alternate program after an initial admission decision has 
been made. 

A prospective student undecided about a major field of study in a particular college may 
wish to consider applying for admission to one of the curricvda not requiring students to 
declare degree program majors until the end of the sophomore year. These are the core 
curriculum in the College of Agriculture, the unassigned curriculum in the College of 
Commerce and Business Administration, the general education curriculum in the College of 
Education, and the general curriculum in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. 

A beginning freshman is required to remain in the college and the prescribed freshman 
program to which he or she has been admitted for at least two semesters of full-time study. 

A transfer student is obligated to remain in the college, and possibly the curriculum to which 
he or she has been admitted, for at least the first semester of enrollment. A student on campus 
who wishes to transfer to another college must meet the accepting college's admission 
requirements and compete for any available space. Due to enrollment controls, transfer to 
some programs is very competitive. For example, the College of Commerce and Business 
Administration and the College of Engineering will consider only transfer students with 60 
hours of prerequisite course work. 

The opportunity to enroll as a nondegree student is limited in the fall and spring semesters, 
and priority is given to University employees and residents of the community who wish to 
enroll in courses that are offered only at the University. There is no restriction on the number 
of nondegree students who may attend the eight-week summer session. 

ADMISSION OR READMISSION DENIED BECAUSE OF MISCONDUCT 

The University reserves the right either to deny admission or readmission to any person 
because of previous misconduct that may substantially affect the interest of the University, or 
to admit or readmit such a person on an appropriate disciplinary status. The admission or 
readmission of such a person will not be approved or denied until his or her case has been heard 
by the appropriate disciplinary committee. This applies to persons not now enrolled in the 
University who might apply for admission or readmission. A favorable action of the 
appropriate disciplinary committee does not abrogate the right of any dean or director to deny 
admission or readmission on the basis of scholarship. 

UNDERGRADUATE ADMISSION CATEGORIES 

Applicants for undergraduate admission comprise the several categories that are defined in 
this section. A prospective applicant may then refer to the general requirements for admission 
and to the succeeding section most appropriate for his or her situation. 

Beginning Freshman. A beginning freshman applicant is either one who applies for admission 
while attending high school, regardless of the amount of college credit earned, or one who has 
graduated from high school but completed fewer than 12 semester hours or 18 quarter hours 
of transferable college classroom credit by the desired term of entry. A high school midyear 
graduate planning to attend a collegiate institution before admission to the University of 
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for the fall term should apply as a beginning freshman during 
his or her last fall term in high school; such an applicant is admitted primarily on the basis of 
high school credentials and an admission test score and may complete more than 12 semester 
hours of transferable college classroom credit at another institution before enrollment at the 
Urbana-Champaign campus. 

Transfer Applicant. A transfer applicant is one who (1) has completed a minimum of 12 
semester or 18 quarter hours of transferable college classroom credit by the desired term of 
entry, and (2) does not meet the definition of a beginning freshman or a readmission applicant. 

Readmission Applicant. A readmission applicant is one who has previously registered on the 
campus as an undergraduate degree candidate and either (1 ) earned credit but not a degree or 
(2) withdrew prior to earning credit, and who has not subsequently attended any other 
collegiate institution from which transfer credit is acceptable for admission. 



ADMISSION 11 

Second Bachelor's Degree Applicant. A second bachelor's degree applicant is one who has 
earned a bachelor's degree and wishes to continue study for another bachelor's degree. 

Nondegree Applicant. A nondegree applicant is one who wishes to take courses for credit, but 
either does not qualify for a degree program or does not intend to earn a degree from the 
Urbana-Champaign campus. 

SPECIAL ADMISSIONS 

An applicant who is not otherwise eligible, and for whom evidence clearly establishes (1) 
quaUfications to do satisfactory work and (2) extenuating circumstances judged worthy of 
special consideration, may have his or her application reviewed and may be admitted with the 
approval of the director of admissions and records and the dean of the college concerned. 

For experimental and special programs that provide academic support services, space may 
be reserved for applicants of different qualifications, not to exceed 10 percent of the entering 
freshman class of the previous fall term. 

Appeals for special consideration after denial of admission are generally unsuccessful since 
admission spaces usually have been filled by that time.

Agriculture as part of the total 25 semesters required. 

*A combined total of 1 3 semesters of English and mathematics is required, with at least 6 semesters of each; 

the architectural studies curriculum and the specialized curricula in biochemistry, chemical engineering, 

chemistry, geology, and physics require 7 semesters of mathematics, including trigonometry. 

^Beginning Spring Semester 1992, the College of Commerce and Business Administration will require 

trigonometry. 



GENERAL REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION 

The following general University policies are applicable to all undergraduate applicants at 
both the beginning freshman and transfer student levels. 

To be eligible for consideration for admission, an applicant must meet certain requirements 
in terms of age, high school graduation, high school credits, college preparatory subject 
requirements, and competence in English. 

Age. An appUcant must be at least fifteen years of age by the time of desired enrollment. 



12 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



High School Graduation. An applicant must be a graduate of a regionally accredited high 
school, a school in Illinois recognized by the state superintendent of education, or a school 
elsewhere with a rating equivalent to full recognition; graduates of other secondary schools 
and nongraduates of secondary schools may be admitted under the provisions for use of the 
General Educational Development Test. 

General Educational Development Test (GED). The achievement of satisfactory scores on the 
General Educational Development Test is acceptable in lieu of graduation from an accredited 
high school. This test alone will not fulfill all of the college preparatory subject requirements. 

A standard score of 35 on each of the five tests and an average standard score of 45 on all five 
tests are the minimum scores needed to provide the following high school credit: 9 semesters 
of English, 8 semesters of social studies, and 7 semesters of general science. This is a total of 
24 semesters (12 units) of college preparatory subject matter and a total of 30 semesters (15 
units) of high school credit. To be eligible to take these tests, applicants must be at least eighteen 
years of age or ha ve been out of school for at least one year. Additional information is available 
upon request from the Office of Admissions and Records. 

If to be used in lieu of high school graduation. General Educational Development Test scores 
should be sent by the testing center directly to the Office of Admissions and Records. 

High School Credits. Applicants for admission to all curricula must present a total of at least 
15 units of acceptable college preparatory schoolwork. Graduates of schools organized as 
three-year senior high schools, including grades ten, eleven, and twelve, must have at least 12 
units in the senior high school. Credit earned prior to grade nine is acceptable if the transcript 
of credit, certified by the senior high school, shows the credit as high school credit from grade 
eight. A unit course of study in the secondary school is a course covering an academic year and 
including not less than the equivalent of 120 sixty-minute hours of classroom work. Two hours 
of work requiring little or no preparation outside the class are considered as the equivalent to 
one hour of prepared classroom work. Fractional units of the value less than one-half are not 
accepted. Not less than 1 unit of work is accepted in a foreign language, elementary algebra, 
plane geometry, physics, chemistry, or biology. The required 15 units must include the 
following: 

1 . Three units of English. Work offered to meet this requirement should be composed of studies 

in language, composition, and literature, requiring practice in expository writing in all such 
work. Course work should emphasize reading, writing, speaking, and listening. 

2. One unit each in algebra and plane geometry. General mathematics, college preparatory 
mathematics, or other courses in mathematics may be accepted in lieu of algebra and plane 
geometry, or more advanced courses, in any case in which the content of the course is 
essentially the same as that ordinarily included in the required course, as determined by the 
Department of Mathematics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. When such 
courses are not equivalent to the prescribed algebra and plane geometry or more advanced 
courses, they will be accepted as elective credit. 

3. The college preparatory subjects prescribed in the pattern specified for the curriculum for which 

the application is being made. Acceptable college preparatory subjects are English and 
mathematics courses as described above plus courses in foreign language, the sciences, and 
social studies as shown in Table 1. 

4. Elective units selected from any of the high school subjects that are accepted by an accredited 
school toward its diploma and that meet the standards for accrediting. Courses in such 
fields as agriculture, art, commerce, general science, home economics, industrial arts, and 
music are accepted as elective units to complete the 15 required for admission. 

College Preparatory Subject Requirements. Admission to each college and curriculum re- 
quires that applicants complete a specific number of units in certain college preparatory high 
school subjects (see Table 1, page 11). 

The subjects required for admission to the Urbana-Champaign campus differ depending on 
the college and curriculum selected by the applicant. There are four different patterns, or 
combinations of subjects, designated by Roman numerals 1, 11, III, and IV in Table 1 on page 1 1 . 
Applicants must have the courses under the "Required" column for their applications to be 
considered. The majority of successful applicants exceed the minimum course requirements 
and have strong college preparatory backgrounds. The subject patterns required for admis- 
sion to various colleges and curricula on the Urbana-Champaign campus (effective through 
Fall Semester 1992) are listed below and are given in Ihidcrgraiiuate Adruissioiis Information, an 
annual publication available each September from the Office of Admissions and Records.

Except for admission to the College of Fine and Applied Arts, the subject pattern require- 
ments are waived for transfer applicants who will have completed 30 or more semester hours 
of transferable college credit by the date of enrollment at the Urbana-Champaign campus. 

Under extenuating circumstances, a specific subject requirement may be waived for 
otherwise well qualified applicants. An applicant seeking a waiver of the subject pattern 
requirement should use the Background Statement section of the application to state the 
rationale for requesting such action. 

A student who lacks a required high school subject may satisfy the requirement at either a 
community college or elsewhere prior to enrollment at the University. This information must 
be communicated on the application for admission. One semester in college is the equivalent 
of 2 semesters of high school course work. 

New preparatory subject requirements will be required of students seeking admission 
beginning with Spring Semester 1993 (see Table 2, below). The four current patterns will be 
consolidated into a single pattern of required course work applicable for all colleges admitting 
freshmen. In all subject areas, this new pattern meets or exceeds the minimum entrance 
requirements specified by Public Act 86-0954 governing the admission of students to Illinois 
public colleges and universities. As is now the case, most successful applicants will exceed 
these requirements and have very strong college preparatory backgrounds.

14 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



^Studies in language, composition, and literature, requiring practice in expository writing in all such work. 

Course work should emphasize reading, writing, speaking, and listening. 

^Algebra, geometry, advanced algebra, and trigonometry. Typically, such courses as career/occupational 

mathematics, consumer mathematics, applied business mathematics, pre-algebra, and computer courses 

are not acceptable. 

^History and government are preferred. Additional acceptable social siudies include anthropology, 

economics, geography, philosophy, policial science, psychology, and sociology. 

''Laboratory courses in biology, chemistry, or physics are preferred. Laboratory courses in astronomy and 

geology are also acceptable. General science will not be acceptable. 

^Two years of any one foreign language fulfills the requirement. 



Competence in English. A minimum requirement for competence in English applies to all 
University students. Undergraduate applicants for admission may satisfy this minimum 
requirement by certifying that one of the following conditions has been fulfilled in a country 
where English is the primary language and in a school in which English is the primary 
language of instruction: 

— Graduation with credit for 3 units, or the equivalent, of English from a secondary school; 
— or successful completion of a minimum of two academic years of full-time study at the 

secondary school or collegiate level immediately prior to the proposed date of enrollment 

in the University. 

For an applicant who does not meet one of the above conditions, evidence can be provided 
by achieving a satisfactory score on a test of competence in English. The test(s) to be used and 
the minimum score(s) shall be subject to approval by the University Committee on Admissions 
with the advice of the University's Technical Committee on Testing. This requirement may be 
waived upon agreement by the director of admissions and records and the dean of the college 
concerned if evidence of competence in English presented by the applicant clearly justifies such 
action. 

ADDITIONAL ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

A few colleges and curricula have admission requirements in addition to the regular academic 
standards. Instructions on how to fulfill these additional requirements are forwarded to 
students soon after their applications are received. Students should be aware that additional time 
is required to process applications for admission to curricula with additional admission requirements. 
Students denied on the basis of additional admission requirements may find all admission spaces filled 
in alternative programs at the time of notification. Thus, such applicants should apply early and may 
also wish to apply to other institutions. The following chart indicates the colleges and curricula 
with additional admission requirements.

Health Requirements 
PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH 

New students may be required to present evidence of satisfactory physical and mental health 
to the director of health services. Each admitted applicant will receive a Student Health Report 
form, which he or she must use to report proof of immunity to certain vaccine-preventable 
diseases as defined by state law and required by University regulations, as well as any other 
pertinent medical data, to the director of the McKinley Health Center at Urbana-Champaign. 
A minor (someone under eighteen years of age at the time of registration) must submit the 
Student Health Report form with a parent's or guardian's written authorization for the student 
to receive treatment at the McKinley Health Center. A student who fails to return the 
completed Student Health Report form by the date shown on the form and who fails to comply 
by the end of the first term of enrollment is prohibited by state law from subsequent enrollment 
in the University. Upon the advice of a McKinley Health Center physician, admission or 
readmission of a student may be denied until the student is cleared by the McKinley Health 
Center. 

Students transferring from the University of Illinois at Chicago should request that their 
Student Health Report forms be transferred by the health center on that campus to the 
McKinley Health Center. 

Military personnel may have their Student Health Report forms completed by a military 
physician. 

TUBERCULOSIS CONTROL 

New and readmitted students are encouraged to present evidence of freedom from tuberculosis 
at the McKinley Health Center. All new international students are required to complete a tuberculosis 
screeriing at the McKinley Health Center before completing registration. 

Final evidence of freedom from tuberculosis is established by either a negative tuberculin 
skin test performed within the last twelve months by a healthcare provider in the United States, 
or a negative tuberculin skin test performed at the McKinley Health Center at Urbana- 
Champaign prior to registration. 

A person who has a positive skin test is required to have a chest X-ray. A person with a 
known history of positive reaction to the tuberculosis skin test will not be retested, but will 
require a chest X-ray to show evidence of freedom from active tuberculosis. An individual who 
has had a chest X-ray performed within the previous twelve months will not require an 
additional chest X-ray if the previous chest X-ray is obtainable and meets the University's chest 
X-ray standards. A student with a positive skin test must schedule an appointment in the 
Tuberculosis Screening Clinic at McKinley Health Center to review his or her health history. 

ADMISSION OF BEGINNING FRESHMEN 

Dates for filing complete applications for admission or readmission are given in the following 
and other application calendars. Each deadline date applies as long as space remains available 
in the desired curriculum. Any applicant claiming exceptional circumstances that justify 
special consideration should appeal in writing to the director of admissions and records for an 
extension of filing deadline dates. Only rarely, however, are spaces available by these late 
dates, and applicants are encouraged to apply during the periods indicated in the application 
calendars.

Requirements for Admission 

To assist prospective applicants in assessing their opportunities for admission, application 
guidelines based on previous years' admission decisions are published annually in the 
application materials. They are guidelines only. Final admission standards depend upon the 
number and qualifications of applicants to each program. 

Admission decisions are based primarily on the following objective criteria: (a) the courses 
taken in high school and (b) a combination of high school rank in class and admission test score. 
Anyone approved for admission must have at least a one-in-two (50 percent) chance of 
achieving a 3.0 (C) average for one or more terms of the first academic year on the campus. 

If the number of qualified applicants to a college or curriculum exceeds the admission quota, 
those best qualified will be admitted, and preference may be given to residents of Illinois. "Best 
qualified" will be determined by a combination of high school rank in class and admission test 
score. In determining the admission of those applicants near the borderline of the competitive 
applicant pool, additional criteria may be considered. These additional factors are described 
in the Background Statement section that follows. 



ADMISSION 17 

Admission Test Information 

Each beginning freshman applicant, regardless of rank in class or length of time out of school, 
is required to submit an admission test score from either the American College Testing (ACT) 
program or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) of the College Entrance Examination Board. An 
applicant will not complete the admission requirements until the test score is received by the 
Office of Admissions and Records in the form of an official score report sent directly from the 
testing agency concerned. Complete information concerning the test, the dates of test 
administration, and the location of testing centers may be obtained from high school counsel- 
ors or by writing to the appropriate testing agency: American College Testing, Box 168, Iowa 
City, Iowa 52240, or College Board, 45 Columbus Avenue, New York, New York 10023-6917. 
A prospective applicant is urged to complete an admission test in the spring of his or her 
junior year in high school. 

Background Statement 

Objective academic qualifications will be the major factors considered in admission decisions. 
In addition, the Office of Admissions and Records also attempts to identify those applicants 
whose class ranks and admission test scores or transfer grade-point averages may underpredict 
their likelihood of success, and those whose admission would add diversity to the educational 
and social environment of the campus. 

An appHcant who believes that his or her academic credentials do not adequately reflect his 
or her potential may complete the Background Statement on the application form. The 
applicant should be aware, however, that unless he or she is close to meeting the guidelines 
published for the college to which application is being made, the Background Statement may 
have little impact on the admission decision. 

A student who attends a highly selective high school for which a profile may not be on file 
with the Office of Admissions and Records is urged to have a counselor attach the school profile 
to the student's transcript and to request a review through the Background Statement. 

Among the factors the Office of Admissions and Records may consider in making decisions 
are (1) a permanent physical disability; (2) a health problem that significantly affected, for a 
period of time, an otherwise exceptionally good academic record; (3) an economically disad- 
vantaged environment; (4) an age group or a cultural or ethnic background that will add 
diversity to the campus; (5) completion of Advanced Placement or honors-level courses in high 
school; (6) significant work experiences related to the requested field of study; and (7) 
performance at a level that has brought state or national recognition in a specific field of 
endeavor. 

Application Documents 

An applicant for admission as a freshman must submit the following (all credentials presented 
for admission or readmission become the permanent property of the University, are not 
subsequently released to the student or to another individual or institution, and are not held 
for reconsideration of admission to subsequent terms): 

— A completed admission application form. Admission application forms are available from 
high school counselors and from the Office of Admissions and Records at the address on the 
inside back cover. High school students should submit applications through their high 
schools. 

— A $25 ($35 for foreign students) check or money order (amount subject to change), payable 
to the University of Illinois, in payment of the nonrefundable application processing fee. 
The University is not responsible for cash sent through the mail. 

— An official high school transcript sent directly to the Office of Admissions and Records from 
the high school showing course work completed by the applicant, the date of graduation, 
and the size of the graduating class and the applicant's numerical rank. (Since it is the poHcy 
of the University to accept for admission the academically best qualified of applicants 
competing for limited spaces, the University needs an objective measure of the applicant's 
academic qualification that is comparable to measures used by other high schools. Descriptive 
statements are generally not comparable from school to school and probably will work to 
the applicant's disadvantage unless accompanied by a numerical class rank. Therefore, high 
school personnel are urged to provide a numerical class ranking. Students from three-year senior 
high schools should request that certification of work taken in the ninth grade be included 
on or with the transcript. Eighth-grade work for high school credit also should be included.) 



18 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



— An official admission test score report (ACT or SAT) sent directly to the Office of Admissions 

and Records from the testing agency. 
— A transcript of any college-level course work completed by the freshman applicant sent 

directly from the collegiate institution attended.

Transfer Students from the University of Illinois at Chicago 

Undergraduate transfer students between the University of Illinois at Chicago and the Urbana- 
Champaign campus may be admitted to undergraduate programs on the other campus for 
which spaces are available for transfers from other colleges and universities, provided that 
they meet the requirements of the desired programs at the other campus for admission of on- 
campus transfers. Generally, admission opportunities are better in all curricula if appUcants 
have junior standing (60 semester hours or 90 quarter hours). To be ensured consideration as 
intercampus transfers by the Urbana-Champaign campus, students currently enrolled at the 
Chicago campus should apply for transfer consideration for the spring term between Septem- 
ber 25 and November 1, and for the summer or fall term between February 1 and March 15. 
Applicants to the Urbana-Champaign campus are encouraged to go to the Chicago Office 
of Admissions and Records, where copies of official credentials will be enclosed with their 
application and where current enrollment can be verified to permit waiving of the appUcation 
fee. 

Transfer Applicants Previously Dropped or Placed on Probation for 
Disciplinary Reasons 

A petition for admission of a transfer students who either is on disciplinary probation or has 
been dropped from another collegiate institution for disciplinary reasons must be approved by 
the appropriate subcommittee of the Senate Committee on Student Discipline. 

Requirements for Admission 

To assist prospective applicants in assessing their opportunities for admission, transfer grade- 
point average guidelines are published in the Undergraduate Admissions Information booklet 
available with application materials each September from the Office of Admissions and 
Records. These are guidelines only, and the final standards will depend on the number and 
qualifications of the applicants to each program. 

Admission of a transfer applicant is based on a combination of the hours and content of 
transferable credit and the transfer grade-point average. The minimum transfer grade-point 
average is 3.25 (C = 3.0); most curricula require a higher grade-point average. 

If the number of qualified applicants to a college or curriculum exceeds the admission quota, 
those best qualified will be admitted, and preference may be given to residents of Illinois. 
Lower-division transfer applicants may be restricted when campus space is limited. 

Additional criteria may be considered in determining the admission of those applicants near 
the borderline of the competitive applicant pool; these additional factors are described in the 



ADMISSION 19 

Background Statement section on page 1 7. An applicant who has had a significant break in the 
pursuit of an education and can demonstrate an improved academic performance, or an 
applicant for whom relocation from the Urbana-Champaign community would present a 
major hardship, may wish to address such a factor in the Background Statement section of the 
application for admission. 

Eligibility of a transfer applicant with fewer than 30 semester hours of graded transferable 
classroom credit is based on (1 ) high school percentile rank and ACT or SAT test score, and (2) 
grade-point average and content of transferable courses attempted. 

Grade-Point Averages 

Grade-point averages are calculated on the basis of all transferable courses attempted for 
which grades are assigned and for which grade-point values can be determined. When a 
course is repeated, the grade-point average is computed using both grades and all hours for 
the course. Incomplete grades are accepted as defined by the initiating institution. Grades in 
other course work completed, such as technical courses similar in content and level to courses 
taught at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, may be used in the evaluation for 
admission upon request of the college to which a student seeks admission. 

Since the grade-point average used to establish admission qualifications is based on all 
transferable course work attempted, applicants from institutions- with "forgiveness" grading 
policies (those that may delete grades for course work failed and/or repeated) may find their 
opportunities limited to special admission (see page 11). If the applicants are admitted and 
subsequently register, transfer grade-point averages may not be recorded on their University 
of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign records since the grading policies of the transfer institutions 
and this campus are not comparable. 

Acceptance of Credit from Other Collegiate Institutions 

Credit may be accepted for advanced standing from another accredited university or college. 
Accepted credit will be based on evaluation of the primary transcript of record of each 
institution attended. Duplicate credit will be counted in the grade-point average but excluded 
from hours earned. A student who has passed a course at the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign may not be given credit for the same course taken elsewhere. 

Acceptance of Traditional Transfer Credit 

Admission of transfer students to the University of Illinois is based only on the transfer course 
work that is similar in nature, content, and level to that offered by the University of Illinois. 
Such courses are normally referred to as transfer or college-parallel work. Other course work 
con;pleted, such as technical courses similar in content and level to courses taught at the 
University, will be used in evaluation for admission only upon the request of the dean of the 
college to which the student seeks admission. 

Transfer credit, as defined, will be accepted at full value for admission purposes on transfer 
to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign if earned at: 

—Colleges and universities that offer degree programs comparable to programs offered by the 
University of Illinois and (1 ) are members of or hold Candidate for Accreditation status from 
the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools or another regional accrediting 
association, or (2) are accredited by another accrediting agency that is a member of the 
Council on Postsecondary Accreditation; or 
— Illinois public community colleges that are neither members of nor holders of Candidate for 
Accreditation status from the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, but that 
are approved and recognized by the Illinois Community College Board (ICCB) for a period 
of time not to exceed five years from the date on which the college registers its first class after 
achieving ICCB recognition. 

Certain colleges and universities do not meet the above specifications but have been 
assigned a status by the University Committee on Admissions that permits credit to be 
accepted on a provisional basis for admission purposes on transfer to the University of Illinois 
at Urbana-Champaign. Transfer credit, as defined, from such colleges and universities is 
accepted only on a deferred basis, to be validated by satisfactory completion of additional work 
in residence. Validation through satisfactory work in residence may be accomplished by 
earning at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, or another fully accredited' college 



20 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



or university, at least a 3.0 (A = 5.0) grade-point average (higher if prescribed by the curriculum 
the student wishes to enter) in the first 1 2 to 30 semester (1 8 to 45 quarter) hours completed after 
transfer. 

Credit transferred from an approved' community or junior college is limited only by the 
provision that the student must earn at least 60 semester or 90 quarter hours required for the 
degree at the University or at any other approved' four-year college or university after at- 
taining junior standing, except that the student must meet the residence requirements that 
apply to all students for a degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. When 
a school or college within the University requires three years of preprofessional college credit 
for admission, at least the last 30 semester or 45 quarter hours must be taken in an approved^ 
four-year collegiate institution. 



Colleges and universities nneeting one or more of the specifications as defined. 



In all cases, the precise amount of transfer credit that is applicable toward a particular degree 
will be determined by the University college and department concerned. 

Acceptance of Nontraditional Transfer Credit 

Acceptance of credit awarded on bases other than collegiate classroom experiences will be 
considered for transfer admission purposes as follows: 

Test credit for admission as transfer credit. Students presenting test credit awarded else- 
where, or test scores for admission or transfer credit purposes, will have that credit evaluated 
against cutoff scores established for those examinations on the Urbana-Champaign campus. 
Official score reports should be submitted to the Office of Admissions and Records along with 
the application for admission to the University. A student presenting test credit for which (1) 
no Urbana-Champaign campus policy exists, or (2) campus cutoff scores indicate no credit will 
be awarded, may still be granted transfer credit if the student (1) is transferring at least 12 
graded classroom semester hours of acceptable college-level graded classroom course work 
from the institution or single campus in a multicampus institution that awarded the credit by 
examination; and (2) has successfully completed advanced classroom course work at the 
institution awarding the test credit in a course that is acceptable under University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign transfer credit policies and that can be considered as a sequential con- 
tinuation of the material covered in the test. 

After admission, students not awarded credit under this policy may attempt departmental 
proficiency examinations to receive credit in those areas in which they claim competence. 

Credit for military training. The completion of six months or more of continuous active duty 
in the U.S. armed forces, including basic or recruit training, is accepted for advanced standing 
credit of 4 semester hours of basic military science on presentation of evidence along with an 
honorable discharge or transfer to the reserve component. Candidates for graduation who are 
still in military service are entitled to the same credit. Credit in military science may also be 
granted for other training completed in the service that is acceptable as the equivalent of 
Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) courses at the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign. Such credit may be used for admission purposes. Credit duplicating ROTC credit 
will not be awarded. 

Credit for education in the armed forces. The U.S. Armed Forces Institute (USAFI) was an 
educational program that existed prior to May 1974. The University considers for advanced 
standing credit those USAFI courses of college level for which the student has passed the 
appropriate USAFI end-of-course examination. Marine Corps Institute courses also will be 
considered on the same basis. The University may consider for advance standing credit work 
completed in the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, and Navy specialized and 
technical schools. Criteria to determine acceptability include the specific degree requirements 
of the program of application, similarity to courses on this campus, and recommendation of the 
American Council on Education in the Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experience in the 
Armed Services. 

All criteria are subject to the recommendations of the college to which the student seeks 
admission and the department that teaches similar course work. 



ADMISSION 21 

Credit earned in the College Training Programs of the Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, and 
Navy, which functioned during World War II, is accepted on the same basis as other credit from 
the colleges and universities where such credit was completed. 

Credit earned in academic courses sponsored by noncoUegiate organizations, such as business, 
industry, and labor, not recognized by the April 1977 Board of Trustees policy statement. 
Credit earned in such courses is not normally accepted. Such credit may be evaluated for 
potential advanced standing in a specific degree program after admission and registration; this 
credit shall be subject to validation by proficiency examination or successful completion of

Foreign undergraduate applicants are urged to submit admission applications and support- 
ing documents approximately one year prior to the desired term of entry. Competition is 
extremely keen, and late applicants jeopardize their opportunities for admission. Additional 
information and application materials are available from the Office of Admissions and Records 
at the address on the inside back cover. 

Admission Requirements 

Admission is competitive, and preference is given to those appUcants judged to have the best 
potential for academic success at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The 
minimum requirements for admission are: 
— Satisfaction of University minimum requirements in terms of age, high school graduation, 

high school units, and health (see page 15). 
— Satisfaction of minimum requirements of the college and curriculum of choice in terms of 

high school subjects and any additional requirements prescribed for admission (see pages 

14-15). 
— Satisfaction of the University requirement of competence in English (see next section). 
— Adequate financial resources (see Financial Verification Requirement section). 

ENGLISH COMPETENCE REQUIREMENT 

Evidence of English proficiency is required of students who request consideration for admission. 

This evidence is provided by a satisfactory score on the Test of English as a Foreign Language 

(TOEFL). Undergraduate applicants are exempt from this test if they have fulfilled one of the 

following requirements in a country where English is the primary language and in a school in 

which English is the primary language of instruction: 

— Graduation with credit for 3 units, or the equivalent, of English; or 

— Successful completion of a minimum of two academic years of full-time study at the 

secondary school or collegiate level immediately prior to the proposed date of enrollment 

in the University. 

The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is administered several times each year 
at many locations throughout the world. To make arrangements to take the test, write directly 
to the TOEFL Application Office, P.O. Box 6151, Princeton, NJ 06151, U.S.A., or contact the 
nearest U.S. embassy or consulate, or U.S. Information Service office. Applicants who have 
already taken the test should request that the TOEFL office send their scores to the Office of 
Admissions and Records immediately. For admission purposes, TOEFL scores are valid for 
only two years prior to the proposed term of entry. If the TOEFL score is acceptable but 
indicates the need for further English study, a placement test will be required upon arrival at 
the University. On the basis of the placement test scores, applicants may be required to enroll 
in noncredit English courses and to take reduced academic loads. 

In cases in which TOEFL testing dates are not available prior to the desired term of entry, 
the University will arrange for substitution of the Michigan English Language Assessment 
Battery (MELAB) test given by the English Language Institute Testing and Certification 



ADMISSION 25 

Division at the University of Michigan. Complete instructions to arrange for the MELAB 
examination will be provided by the Office of Admissions and Records to each appUcant for 
whom the test is required. Final admission status is determined after the test results have been 
received. 

The minimum cutoff scores are 520 on the TOEFL and 80 on the MELAB. The English 
requirement for graduation is explained on page 76. 

FINANCIAL VERIFICATION REQUIREMENT 

In order to qualify for a Certificate of Visa Eligibility (Form 1-20 or IAP-66), a foreign applicants 
must submit complete and accurate information regarding his or her source of financial

Naturalization Service. Current information and certification also are required of foreign 
applicants transferring from institutions within the United States. Financial resources must be 
documented for the entire length of time required to earn a degree. Expenses for the 1990-91 
academic year were estimated at $15,395, excluding summer session tuition and fees. This 
figure is subject to change without notice, is expected to increase yearly, and is presented here 
for planning purposes. Current estimated expenses may be obtained by writing to the Office 
of Admissions and Records. 

Prospective students who carmot document the availability of sufficient resources will be 
denied admission. 

University financial aid funds are extremely Hmited and are available only to participants 
in specific exchange programs. Individual requests for financial aid cannot be considered. 

Application Documents 

A foreign student appHcant for admission must submit the following (all credentials presented 

for admission or readmission become the permanent property of the University, are not 

subsequently released to the student or to another individual or institution, and are not held 

for reconsideration of admission to subsequent terms):

Admission of Candidates for Degrees 

Freshman, transfer, or readmission applicants who wish to be admitted to the summer session 
and to continue as degree candidates in the fall semester must meet the same admission 
requirements as students applying for the fall semester. Such applicants should indicate on 
their application forms that they are applying for admission in June to continue in the fall. 
Detailed admission requirements and application procedures for undergraduates are contained 
in the application packet available each September. 

Applicants for summer to continue in the fall should be aware that fall term admission spaces 
have been filled in most academic programs long in advance of summer session apphcation 
deadlines. Information on programs open for admission can be obtained from the Office of 
Admissions and Records throughout the academic year. 

Admission of Summer Session Nondegree Students 

Approval of admission or readmission as a nondegree student to the summer session only does 
not allow enrollment in the fall or spring. A student who was admitted to the summer session 
only as a nondegree student and who later wishes to enter one of the colleges of the University 
as a degree or nondegree students must apply for admission in the usual manner and satisfy 
requirements in effect at the time of application. A person admitted as a nondegree under- 
graduate student to the summer session only is not assigned to any college or curriculum. 

Undergraduate nondegree applications for admission to the summer session only may be 
approved by the director of admissions and records or by the Summer Session Office under the 
following conditions: 

— High school graduates who qualified for admission under minimum rank and test score 
combination requirements, but who were not admitted under competitive rank and test 
score combination requirements in effect for the fall semester, may be admitted as nondegree 
students for the summer session only. (These minimum rank and test score requirements, 
known as campus minimums, are available from the Office of Admissions and Records the 
September preceding the summer term for which admission is sought.) 
— Former University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign students who have not graduated from 
the University may be admitted as nondegree candidates if approved by the director of 
admissions and records through release from their former colleges. Students on drop or 
probationary status must petition the Summer Session Office for admission as nondegree 
candidates. If approved, they will be admitted on probation for that single summer session 
only. 
— An undergraduate student enrolled in another institution may enroll in the summer session 
as a nondegree candidate if the student is eligible to return to the collegiate institution last 
attended. 
— Any person eighteen years of age or older who has never attended a collegiate institution, 
but who gives evidence that he or she possesses the requisite background and ability to 
pursue profitably courses for which he or she is qualified, may enroll in the summer session 
as a nondegree candidate. 



ADMISSION 27 

Application Documents 

An applicant for admission to summer session as a nondegree student must submit the

the spring semester and the eight-week summer session. Admission requirements, applica- 
tion procedures, and a listing of Intersession courses are given in the summer session Timetable. 

Persons eligible to register for Intersession courses are students registered in the immedi- 
ately preceding spring semester, new students who have been admitted to the current summer

PROGRAMS FOR FRESHMEN 

The University offers fall semester freshmen the opportunity to complete required testing, to 
become acquainted with the campus, and to receive academic advising and complete advance 
enrollment during a summer two-day period prior to the beginning of the fall semester. These 
opportunities are explained fully in the booklet Get Ready for Illinois, which is sent to all ac- 
cepted applicants. 

Freshmen entering in the fall semester who do not participate in the placement testing and 
summer orientation/advance enrollment programs must complete their required testing, 
academic advising, and class scheduling during the week immediately preceding the start of 
classes. Thus, participation in the precollege sessions is strongly urged to ensure a smooth 
transition to the University environment. Information about these activities is sent to new 
students before their scheduled arrival on campus. 

Precollege programs are not available for freshmen entering the University during the 
spring semester; they must complete required testing, academic advising, and registration 
during the week immediately preceding the start of classes. 

Placement Testing 

Placement tests are designed to help determine the levels at which students are best prepared 
to begin University study in particular subject areas. Scores of these tests are used for initial 
placement purposes only and are not recorded on student official academic records. The 
requirements for placement testing vary by college and curriculum, and the Get Ready for Illi- 
nois booklet provides full details on the required and optional tests. 

During March, April, and May, beginning freshmen who have been admitted to the fall 
semester come to either the Urbana-Champaign campus or the University Center of the 
University of Illinois at Chicago campus to participate in a one-day program of required 
testing. The tests taken during this day are the Rhetoric Essay Test, and placement tests in 
mathematics, chemistry, and foreign languages. These tests must be taken by admitted 
students if they had these subjects in high school, but have not received college credit for them, 
and intend to pursue these subjects at the University either as required or elective courses. 

Students who live outside of Illinois and more than 250 miles from Champaign-Urbana have 
the option of completing placement testing on the first day of the orientation/advance 
enrollment program. 

An admitted freshman who fails to complete all required testing by the conclusion of the 
summer program will be assessed a $25 late fee (amount subject to change) to take the tests 
immediately preceding the start of classes if (1) the freshman is a resident of Illinois and (2) the 
Notice of Admission to the University is dated prior to May 1 . 

Academic Advising and Orientation/Advance Enrollment 

A student who has completed the testing required by his or her college may participate in the 
two-day orientation/advance enrollment program conducted at the Urbana-Champaign 
campus during June and July. During that period, the student has an opportunity to learn 
about the expectations of professors and the level of academic standards at the University, as 
well as the chance to interact with other entering students and currently enrolled University 
students. Additionally, the new student is able to receive his or her student identification card 
and to become acquainted with the physical arrangement of the campus, housing faciHties, and 
many other facets of campus life. If interested, the student also has the opportunity to audition 
for band and choral organizations. 



PRECOLLEGE PROGRAMS 29 



The student's stay culminates in a meeting with an academic adviser who provides 
information about academic opportunities and requirements and assists the student in 
selecting a schedule of courses for the fall semester; the course requests of beginning freshmen 
who participate in the summer program receive priority in the scheduling of classes for the fall 
semester. Students participating in the program receive their fall class schedules in early 
August and then may register either by mail or during on-campus registration. 

Since the placement test results are used by the colleges and academic departments 
concerned to evaluate student achievement levels and to assist in arranging class schedules, 
freshmen must complete all required testing before they can participate in summer orienta- 
tion/advance enrollment. 

A program charge includes one night's accommodations, three meals, and program events. 
The program charge is waived for any student who received an admission application fee 
waiver based on extreme financial hardship. 

PROGRAMS FOR TRANSFER AND READMIHED STUDENTS 

New transfer and readmitted students have the opportunity to advance enroll for the fall 
semester during a special one-day program held during the summer. At that time the student 
meets with an academic adviser to discuss the transfer of credit for all previous college course 
work, to learn the student's status in terms of progress toward a degree from the University, 
and to select classes for the fall. The student also has the opportunity to meet in a small group 
with currently enrolled University students, to interact with other entering students, and to 
receive his or her student identification card. Each transfer and readmitted student receives 
details of the advance enrollment program in the Get Ready for Illinois booklet mailed with the 
Notice of Admission. 

PROGRAM FOR PARENTS 

Parents are cordially invited and encouraged to accompany their sons and daughters to the 
campus for the summer program and to participate in a Parent Orientation Program. Through 
a variety of information sessions, parents will have the opportunity to meet and speak with 
campus administrators, faculty, students, and members of the Mothers and Dads Associations. 
A program charge includes one night's accommodations, three meals, and program events. 
Parents likewise may take advantage of the opportunity to tour the campus.

Because of the comprehensive nature of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 
arrangements for talented and highly motivated students differ among the various colleges 
and departments. Generally speaking, talented and highly motivated students are able to 
enter special courses or special sections of courses as freshmen and sophomores and are 
encouraged as juniors and seniors to participate in special programs for majors offered by the 
many departments. For details of these arrangements, see the descriptions in the college 
sections of this catalog. 

Policies and procedures regarding placement and proficiency examinations, the College- 
Level Examination Program (CLEP), and the Advanced Placement Program are published in 
the current edition of Opportunities for Advanced Credit, a brochure available at college offices 
or by writing to the Office of Admissions and Records, University of Illinois at Urbana-

ADVANCED PLACEMENT PROGRAM 

The Advanced Placement Program, administered by the College Entrance Examination Board, 
is designed for high school students who are about to enter college and wish to demonstrate 
their readiness for courses more advanced than those usually studied in the freshman year. 
Advanced classes are offered in many high schools in one or more of the following subjects: 
American and comparative government and politics, art history, art studio, computer science, 
English language and composition, English Hterature and composition, French language, 
French literature, German language, Latin, Spanish language, Spanish literature, biology, 
chemistry, mathematics (calculus), micro- and macroeconomics, physics, music literature, 
music theory, and social studies (American history and European history). A national 
examination in each subject, administered in May by the Educational Testing Service, is 
designed to measure the competence of students in terms of the point at which college study 
in that subject should begin. The University encourages high schools and their outstanding 
students to participate in this program. 

Examinations are prepared and graded by national committees of high school and college 
teachers. They are graded on the following scale: 5, high honors; 4, honors; 3, creditable; 2, pass; 
and 1, fail. Grade reports are sent to the universities each student specifies at the time of the 
examination. Each department within the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has the 
option of granting, or not granting, college credit and advanced placement on the basis of the 
board's grade. 

Transfer students should refer to the section on Acceptance of Nontraditional Transfer

INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE EXAMINATIONS 

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Program, sponsored by a Swiss foundation, offers a 
curriculum covering either the last two years of secondary education or the twelfth and 
thirteenth grades in a thirteen-grade system. Successful completion of the program is based 
on the completion of coursework and passage of internationally prepared examinations. The 
examinations are written at two levels of study: High Level, administered after a minimum of 
240 hours of teaching time in a subject; and Subsidiary Level, administered after a minimum 
of 160 hours of teaching time in a subject. 

The University of IlUnois at Urbana-Champaign will award proficiency credit to new, 
continuing, and transfer students on the basis of scores from several International Baccalau- 
reate examinations: anthropology, biology, chemistry, classics (Latin and Greek), economics, 
French, German, history, and philosophy. University departments establish policies for 
awarding proficiency credit and advanced placement for each score on the IB scale of 1 to 7. 
Those wishing to have such examination scores evaluated should request that official score 
transcripts be sent to the Division of Measurement and Evaluation, University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign, 307 Engineering Hall, 1308 West Green Street, Urbana, IL 61801. 

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign may accept, for transfer purposes, IB credit 
awarded by another institution if the transfer student meets two requirements: (1 ) the student 
must have earned at least 12 semester hours of graded college-level classroom credit at that 
same institution or campus, and (2) the student must have earned classroom credit for a more 
advanced course in the same subject area at that same institution. The advanced course must 
be fully acceptable under University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign transfer credit poHcies. 
Transfer students who have not met these requirements may request that official copies of their 
scores be sent to the Division of Measurement and Evaluation. Such scores will be evaluated 
using the same standards applied to the scores of continuing students at the University. 

The specific credit and placement policies for International Baccalaureate examinations 
recognized by this campus are given below. This information is subject to change upon annual 
review by each department concerned.

PROFICIENCY EXAMINATIONS 

Proficiency examinations are offered in most courses open to freshmen and sophomores. A 
student may take proficiency examinations in more advanced undergraduate courses on 
recommendation of the head or chairperson of the department in which the course is offered 
and approval of the dean of the student's college. Departmental proficiency examinations are 
administered in individual sessions or scheduled group sessions during the semester. De- 
partmental offices can provide information regarding test dates, places of administration, 
types of examination, and references that might be used when preparing for examinations. 
Course descriptions and prerequisites are listed in the Courses catalog. (See the inside back 
cover of this publication for locations at which the Courses catalog may be obtained.) Profi- 
ciency examinations are generally given without cost to students, but fees may be charged to 
defray the cost of proficiency examinations prepared by agencies outside the University. 

All regulations governing proficiency examinations will be applied in the context that the 
University must reasonably accommodate a student's religious beliefs, observances, and 
practices in regard to scheduling of proficiency examinations if the student informs the person 
responsible for the scheduling of such examinations of the conflict within one week after being 
informed of the examination schedule. Any student may appeal an adverse decision. 

An enrolled undergraduate student who passes a proficiency examination is given credit 
toward graduation for the amount regularly allowed in the course (1) if it does not duplicate 
credit counted for admission to the University or credit earned through some other testing 
program and (2) if it is acceptable in the student's curriculum. No official record is made of 
failures in these examinations, but some departments may keep records to prohibit students 
from retaking the examinations. General campus policy information regarding proficiency 
examinations can be found in the Code on Campus Affairs and Handbook of Policies and Regulations 
Applying to All Students. 

Transfer students should consult page 19 for the policy on acceptance of proficiency credit 
for admission purposes. 

COLLEGE-LEVEL EXAMINATION PROGRAM (CLEP) 

This program exists for the purpose of awarding proficiency credit, or otherwise recognizing 
college-level competence achieved outside the college classroom. Two types of tests are 



SPECIAL OPPORTUNITIES 35 



available: (1) the general examination covers the broad content of a study that might be 
expected to be covered by several introductory-level courses, and (2) the subject matter 
examination covers the specific content of a single college course. Credit can be earned and will 
be recognized by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for some CLEP General Ex- 
aminations, but credit is not awarded for any of the CLEP Subject Matter Examinations. 

Most students must fulfill general education requirements for degree purposes in four areas: 
humanities, social science/history, biological science, and physical science. CLEP General 
Examinations in humanities, social science and history, and natural sciences (subtests in 
biological science and physical science) can be used to earn waivers of the corresponding 
general education requirements, or parts of them, and to earn degree credit. Credit is not 
awarded by the University for scores from the CLEP General Examinations in English 
composition or mathematics. A CLEP test provides an opportunity for a student to demon- 
strate knowledge in a general subject area that is as thorough as that required of a graduate who 
has not majored in that particular area. General education requirements are designed to ensure 
that graduates of the University are generalists as well as specialists. The University recognizes 
that this general knowledge may have been acquired by entering students through high school 
work, independent study, extracurricular reading, projects, or work experience. CLEP 
General Examination scores can be used to earn 3 or 6 credit hours and waiver of all or part of 
the requirement in each of the four general education areas. College policies vary in terms of 
the tests that are acceptable for earning credit and waiver, and in terms of the scores required 
for partial or complete waiver of a requirement. 

Students may take CLEP examinations at any CLEP National Testing Center designated by 
the Educational Testing Service (ETS), Box 966, Princeton, New Jersey 08540. Official score 
reports should be sent by ETS to Coordinator, Placement and Proficiency Testing, University 
of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 307 Engineering Hall, 1308 West Green Street, Urbana, IL 
61801. Locations of CLEP National Testing Centers and test administration dates may be 
obtained by writing to ETS, or by inquiring at most college and high school counseling offices. 

CLEP test scores earned by beginning freshmen at the Urbana-Champaign campus, includ- 
ing students with less than 12 semester hours of transferable classroom credit attempted at 
other collegiate institutions, are evaluated for credit according to norms established for the 
campus. Transfer students should refer to the section on Acceptance of Nontraditional 
Transfer Credit on page 20 for the policy on accepting credit earned through CLEP examina- 
tions. 

CLEP examination scores reported by the Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education 
Support (DANTES) testing centers will be evaluated against the same criteria that are applied 
to continuing students on the Urbana-Champaign campus. 

CAMPUS HONORS PROGRAM 

The Campus Honors Program offers special challenges and opportunities to some of the most 
talented and highly motivated of the University's undergraduate students. It is designed to 
foster close, collaborative relationships between top students and distinguished faculty 
members. This collaboration occurs through small class sizes, which ensure close faculty 
supervision and maximum student-faculty interaction; through a faculty mentor system for 
introducing students to the intellectual standards and methodologies of their chosen academic 
disciplines; and through the many informal contacts encouraged by the program's cocurricular 
offerings. Currently, there are four series of noncredit cocurricular events: a Scholar 
Adventures lecture series on interesting research projects in various disciplines; a Study 
Abroad at Home series of seminar-workshops centering on the intellectual and cultural 
heritage of a particular country; a series of dress rehearsals at Krannert Center for the 
Performing Arts; and an informal lunch series. The consistent aim is to encourage breadth and 
excellence from the outset of the student's college career, and to facilitate close interaction with 
role models who are at the cutting edge of their academic disciplines. 

Only 100 new students are admitted to the Campus Honors Program each year as freshmen, 
although it is possible to join the program on an off-cycle basis at the beginning of the 
sophomore year. Designated as "Chancellor's Scholars," students in the Campus Honors 
Program may be enrolled in any undergraduate curriculum. Those who meet retention 
requirements continue as Chancellor's Scholars during their entire undergraduate careers. 
Campus Honors Program coursework is concentrated in the freshman and sophomore years, 
when students take small, enriched versions of general education courses. At the junior and 
senior levels, when students are necessarily and appropriately involved in their major areas of 
specialization, they can continue to receive the benefits of the program by supplementing their 



36 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



specialized coursework with interdisciplinary honors seminars. The emphasis is on funda- 
mental principles and interdisciplinary connections, because the CHP is directed at students 
who desire an undergraduate education that is broad and general as well as professionally 
specialized. 

It is important to understand that Campus Honors Program courses represent additional 
opportunities for academically gifted students, not a complete alternative curriculum. They 
provide an honors-quality way of satisfying general education requirements for graduation 
and of helping students to discover the interrelations between their own discipline and other 
disciplines. The program does not offer a major nor does it take the place of specialized 
departmental honors programs. Accordingly, most of the courses Campus Honors Program 
students take are regular University offerings. In consultation with a departmental academic 
adviser, each Chancellor's Scholar selects his or her own combination of regular and program 
courses. They are not required to take specific Campus Honors Program courses, but only to 
choose (over a three- or four-year period) from a varied menu of program offerings those four 
courses plus one capstone seminar that best fit the student's personal interests as well as his 
or her college and departmental curricular requirements. 

Benefits 

As a small general studies program within a large state university, the Campus Honors 
Program combines the advantages of a major public institution (relatively low cost, vast 
resources, and cultural diversity) with those of a liberal arts college (the individual attention 
and opportunites for close personal interaction fostered by an excellent faculty-student ratio 
and restricted class size). Other opportunities provided by the program include: 
— Challenging courses designed especially for Chancellor's Scholars with enrollment usually 

limited to no more than fifteen students, 
— Intellectually-oriented faculty and peers, 
— Grants of $1 ,000 to fund student research projects during the summer and to support student 

domestic and foreign travel, 
— Priority registration for classes, 
— A variety of social and intellectual activities outside the classroom, including cultural events 

and seminars on topics of interest, 
— Graduate student access to the University Library, 
— Transcript notation of Chancellor's Scholar status, 
— Access to personal computers and to a specially developed PLATO communications 

network, 
— Free computer workshops on MacWrite and Word Perfect, 
— Orientation and senior sibling programs for incoming students, 
— Use of Honors House, an honors student center offering a conducive atmosphere for study 

and relaxation, and 
— The personal satisfaction of realizing one's potential. 

Admission 

An entering freshman with a high ACT/SAT score and an exceptionally strong high school 
record is automatically invited to apply for admission to the Campus Honors Program, but any 
incoming or currently enrolled freshman may ask to be considered. Acceptance is based upon 
such factors as standardized test scores, high school class rank and grade-point average, 
evidence of creative and leadership abilities as displayed in extracurricular interests and 
activities, and the strength of the application essay. The program is open to students in all 
majors offered on the Urbana-Champaign campus, and an effort is made to ensure that each 
incoming class of Chancellor's Scholars is broadly representative of the curricula of the 
University as a whole. The adn\ission committee does its best to identify students who are 
strongly motivated not only to excel but also to contribute. 

For additional information or to obtain an application form, contact the Campus Honors 
Program, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 1205 West Oregon Street, Urbana, IL 
61801; (217) 244-0922. For full consideration, completed applications should be received by 
February 1 for admission the following fall. 



SPECIAL OPPORTUNITIES 37 



EDMUND J. JAMES UNDERGRADUATE HONORS PROGRAMS 

Undergraduate honors programs, named for one of the University's distinguished presidents, 
Edmund J. James, provide a number of special curricular opportunities to academically 
talented undergraduate students. Designation by the University as "James Scholars" recog- 
nizes students of extraordinary ability and achievement. It entitles students to certain 
academic privileges, including the extended use of library facilities, and charges them with the 
responsibility for seeking sustained intellectual achievement throughout their undergraduate 
careers. James Scholar honors students are characterized by outstanding academic records; 
high general aptitudes for college work; and reputations for seriousness of purpose, persistence, 
and self-discipline in educational endeavors. 

A student electing to participate in the program may enroll in any undergraduate curriculum; 
unusual academic arrangements are open to James Scholar honors students in all courses of 
study. These arrangements include provision of honors courses and sections, special seminars, 
and interdisciplinary colloquia. In addition, James Scholars are encouraged to pursue 
individual scholarly interests through independent study and research projects. Administrative 
coordination of all undergraduate honors programs is currently conducted by the Office of 
Admissions and Records. 

There is no monetary award associated with this program, and students who need financial 
assistance should apply to the Office of Student Financial Aid. 

Nomination Procedures 

Academic requirements for participation in the program are determined by the respective 
colleges. Undergraduates in most colleges may "self-nominate" into the program, provided 
that the decision is based on prior achievement and on high school and college faculty or 
administrative advice, and is accomplished prior to the terminal dates set for entry into 
academic programs leading to honors degrees. In the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, 
entering students with higher than a predetermined college selection index are automatically 
admitted as James Scholar Designates. (See page 243 for further information regarding James 
Scholar honors students in Liberal Arts and Sciences.) Students may elect to leave the program 
or may be removed for failure to meet standards of academic performance in the various 
colleges. 

During summer advance enrollment, freshmen in most colleges will receive additional 
information regarding specific college programs leading to honors degrees. At that time, in 
consultation with an adviser, a student may self-nominate into the program and select an 
honors course or plan other honors activities. 

Although the honors program in each college varies in detail, any incoming freshman 
electing to undertake an honors program will enter the University as a James Scholar 
Designate. After completion of a period on campus, each designate's record will be reviewed 
by his or her college. The student then will be invited to continue as a full James Scholar honors 
student or advised to leave the program on the basis of criteria developed by the college. 
Resident and transfer students wishing to self-nominate into the program should inquire at 
their college offices. 

James Scholar Recognition 

Successful performance for one year as a James Scholar honors student is recognized and 
recorded on the student's University record as Edmund J. James Scholar (year). 

Specific inquiries regarding the honors program of a particular college may be addressed to 
the college office in care of the honors dean. 

Honors Credit Learning Agreements 

It is not expected that a James Scholar honors student will take a full schedule of special courses; 
however, at least one honors activity each semester is considered normal. To encourage 
sustained independent intellectual activity by superior students, the campuswide Honors 
Credit Learning Agreement Program enables students to earn officially recognized honors 
credit in regular undergraduate courses. This is accomplished by a learning agreement 
between student and instructor whereby the student undertakes a special course-related 



38 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



project. Upon successful completion of the project, the student is awarded transcript- 
designated honors credit for the course. Forms for initiation of honors credit learning 
agreements are available in the college offices. Note: This program is currently under review 
and may undergo minor changes in the future. 

TRANSITION PROGRAM 
General Description 

The Transition Program is a campus-sponsored academic support program designed to 
provide assistance to students admitted to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 
who have academic weaknesses that could place them "at risk" if they were permitted to enter 
the University without such assistance. As part of the Transition Program, such students are 
admitted to the general curriculum of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, where they may 
remain and receive developmental academic support for a period of as long as two academic 
years. 

A space is reserved in the curriculum selected by each student in his or her application. If 
the student's performance is satisfactory in the Transition Program, he or she is then permitted 
to transfer to that curriculum. While the majority of students enrolled through the Transition 
Program will remain in the program through the end of the sophomore year, as is the case with 
most general curriculum students, transfer can occur earlier if the individual student meets the 
same requirements as other students pursuing the desired curriculum. 

Through the Transition Program, students are provided with: 
— Intensive academic advising and personal career counseling, 
— The opportunity to enroll in support-based sections of existing courses, and 
— Tutoring, diagnostic testing, developmental skills enhancement, enrichment activities, and 

other assistance as required. 

The Summer Bridge Component 

Some of the students selected the Transition Program are provided with the opportunity to 
participate in the Summer Bridge Component, a seven-week summer session program 
sponsored by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. This program engages the students in 
intensive coursework in mathematics, writing, and basic skills development and, at the same 
time, orients them to the University and campus living. 

Each Summer Bridge Component participant receives institutional financial assistance to 
cover the cost of tuition, fees, room, board, and books. In addition, with the exception of students 
who ivill participate in intercollegiate athletics and who are not eligible for such added financial 
assistance under current National Collegiate Athletic Association regulations, each participant will 
receive a stipend consisting of a modest weekly living allowance and a lump-sum payment at 
the end of the summer session, if he or she has successfully completed the program and is 
eligible to continue enrollment in the Transition Program in the fall. 

Selection of Students and Admission to the Program 

Only those students who officially apply to the University in the prescribed manner and who 
meet established campus and program deadlines for application will be considered for 
participation in the Transition Program. The final decision on which students will be 
participants in the Transition Program is the joint responsibihty of the director of admissions 
and records and the director of the Transition Program, acting on behalf of the College of 
Liberal Arts and Sciences. 

General criteria to be employed in the selection of students for the Transition Program are 
as follows: 
— If an applicant has a score of 1 7 or lower on the ACT' English or a score of 1 8 or lower on the 

ACT Mathematics subtest area, admission will be granted only through the Transition 

Program unless there is strong evidence that participation in the program is not necessary 

for the applicant's success. 



'SAT equivalents: 17 ACT English = 310 SAT Verbal 

18 ACT Mathematics = 380 SAT Quantitative 

15 ACT English = 270 SAT Verbal 

16 ACT Mathematics = 320 SAT Quantitative 



SPECIAL OPPORTUNITIES 39 



— If an applicant has a score of 15 or lower on the ACT EngUsh or a score of 16 or lower on the 
ACT Mathematics subtest area, or if an applicant has a score of 15 or lower on the ACT 
English and a score of 16 or lower on the ACT Mathematics subtest areas, participation in the 
Summer Bridge Component of the Transition Program will be required unless there is 
strong evidence that participation in the Summer Bridge Component is not necessary for the 
applicant's success. EUgibility of Summer Bridge Component participants for fall enroll- 
ment is contingent upon acceptable academic performance in the summer program and 
recommendation by the director of the Transition Program. 

— Other applicants may be invited or required to participate in the Transition Program or the 
Summer Bridge Component if, in the judgment of the director of admissions and records 
and the director of the Transition Program, such participation is necessary for the applicant's 
success at the Uruversity. 

Additional Information 

Additional information about the Transition Program may be obtained by contacting the office 
of the director of the Transition Program, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, 270 Lincoln Hall, 
702 South Wright Street, Urbana, IL 61801, (217) 244-1588. 

EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES PROGRAM 
General Nature and Purpose 

The Educational Opportunities Program (EOP), administered by the Office of Minority 
Student Affairs (see page 45), provides academic services and counseling support to students 
who (1) are academically underprepared or (2) come from backgrounds that are 
underrepresented on the Urbana campus. The program's emphasis is on supporting incoming 
students identified by the Office of Admissions and Records and college offices as being 
academically at risk in their preferred curricula. 

Students in the program, along with many other students, receive financial support from 
federal loans and grants, Illinois State Scholarship Commission Monetary Awards, and 
University tuition waivers. They also contribute toward their expenses through family 
contributions, summer and part-time employment, and personal loans. Supportive services 
for the program are provided by federal and University funds. 

Through the Educational Opportunities Program, the University is attempting to: 
— Admit students who otherwise might not be able to undertake a college-level program at a 

major educational institution, and assist them in completing a baccalaureate degree. 

Participants receive the same benefits as other students and additional support if required. 
— Increase the number of students from ethnic minority groups underrepresented on campus. 
— Develop educational programs and policies, both academic and administrative, that will 

assist and support students in the program and that may well benefit all students. 
— Provide students not in the program the vital cultural and social experience of meeting, 

living with, and learning from students from other cultures. 
— Add ethnic diversity to the campus. 
— Provide and disseminate to other educational institutions and agencies information that will 

increase their ability to deal with educational and sociological problems of students from 

nontraditional backgrounds. 
— Provide information on securing financial aid, student employment, and postgraduate 

opportunities to program participants. 

Admission Requirements 

Admission to the Educational Opportunities Program is limited to applicants from lUinois 
who are educationally or economically disadvantaged and who fall into one of the following 
categories: 
— Beginning freshmen who meet the high school subject pattern requirements and the high 

school rank and test score combinations prescribed for the colleges and curricula of their 

choice. 
— Students not meeting the stated academic requirements, if the deans of the colleges 

concerned and the director of admissions and records (or their designated representatives) 

concur. 

It should be noted that in some curricula, such as the performing arts and aviation, 
additional requirements must be met. (See pages 14 and 15.) 



40 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



Supportive Services 

Supportive services are available to help Educational Opportunities Program students meet a 

wide range of needs, as follows: 

— Extensive academic advising, taking into consideration students' past educational achieve- 
ments, test results, abilities, and interests. The optimal class schedules and course selections 
are determined by students in consultation with special academic advisers in the various 
colleges.

COURSE AHENDANCE BY ILLINOIS HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS 

Quahfied local high school students are permitted, while in high school, to attend University 
classes for college credit. They may also enroll for college credit in correspondence and 
extramural courses offered by the University. 

To qualify for high school and on-campus University concurrent enrollment, a student must 
be recommended by his or her high school principal and have a 4.5 (A = 5.0) grade-point 
average. Students are assessed tuition at the regular undergraduate nondegree student rates. 

Courses taken by these students involve work over and above the secondary school 
curriculum. Grades and course credits will appear on their permanent University records and 
on official transcripts. If these students enter the University after high school graduation, the 
courses, if applicable, will be credited toward University graduation. 

A student applying for on-campus admission or readmission under this program should be 
prepared to submit the following materials upon request: 
— A $25 check or money order payable to the University of Illinois, for the nonrefundable 

application fee. 



SPECIAL OPPORTUNITIES 41 

— A nondegree application for admission (or readmission) to the University (not required of 
students who were enrolled under this plan in the immediately preceding semester or 
summer session). 

— An official copy of the student's high school transcript covering all work completed in high 
school and courses in progress, together with ACT or SAT test score if available. Acceptance 
under this program does not guarantee later acceptance as a degree candidate. 

Information and appUcations for this program may be obtained from the Office of Admissions 
and Records at the address on the inside back cover. A separate undergraduate admission 
application is required if a student desires to attend the University after high school graduation 
or under the Early Admission Program described in the next section. 

A student interested in correspondence study should request information and an application 
form as described on page 23. It is suggested that students begin correspondence study to 
coincide with the start of a fall or spring semester at the University. Applications should be 
submitted before the beginning of a semester. For the summer session, applications should be 
submitted by the middle of May. 

EARLY ADMISSION PROGRAM 

Under the Early Admission Program, a high school student meeting competitive admission 
requirements except receipt of a high school diploma may be enrolled in the University after the 
junior year. This may reduce the length of the combined high school and college education by 
one year. Although each application is treated as a special admission case, a prospective 
student must have completed his or her junior year in high school, have earned approximately 
15 units toward a high school diploma, be in good academic standing, be recommended by a 
high school staff member who is able to evaluate the student's work, and meet competitive 
admission standards. Those accepted in the program are enrolled in regular four-year 
curricula and treated as first-year students. 

A student interested in this program may apply for admission no sooner than January 
preceding the fall term of planned entry so that the application can include complete 
information about the student's fall semester. However, application should be completed as 
soon as possible after January 1. 

For complete information, contact the Office of Admissions and Records at the address on 
the inside back cover. 

DELAYED ADMISSION 

A person approved for admission may request that the admission be delayed for a maximum 
of one year to allow participation in nonacademic pursuits. An applicant who wishes to 
consider this alternative should request further information from the Office of Admissions and 
Records at the time that he or she accepts the admission offer since the program is limited. 

CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT 

Students at Parkland College and the Urbana-Champaign Campus 

A student in good academic standing at Parkland College or at the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign may concurrently enroll in courses offered by the other institution if such 
courses are not available at the student's primary campus. Prior written approval for 
concurrent enrollment must be obtained from the dean of students at Parkland College and the 
concerned college office at the University campus. 

A concurrent enroUee is a part-time nondegree student at the secondary institution who 
pays the tuition and fees regularly assessed at that institution in accordance with the amount 
of work taken. The application fee is waived. 

STUDY AWAY FROM CAMPUS 

The University permits a student who has been enrolled on campus for at least a semester or 
summer session, with the approval of the student's adviser and the appropriate departmental 
and college offices, to undertake independent study away from campus either in the United 
States or abroad. 



42 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



Colleges and departments may establish variable credit courses that permit students, upon 
payment of an appropriate fee, to continue enrollment in the University while studying away 
from campus. Final determination of credit is made by the department and college concerned. 

Overseas study programs offered by each college are described in the individual college 
sections of this catalog.

delinquent service charge is applied to all items charged to the student account and for which 
payment is delinquent. 

Students who are in debt to the University at the end of any academic term may not be 
permitted to register in the University again. They are not entitled to receive diplomas or 
official statements or transcripts of credits until either the indebtedness has been paid or 
suitable arrangements for payment have been made, unless either there is a pending bankruptcy 
petition of the student seeking a discharge of all such indebtedness or all such indebtedness has 
been discharged. 

REFUNDS 

Cancellation of Registration 

Individuals who sign and return a Registration Agreement and later decide not to attend the 
University may cancel their registration before the end of the first day of classes. 

If a request to cancel registration is received in the Office of Admissions and Records by 5:00 
p.m. on the last day of on-campus registration, a student's registration agreement will be 
cancelled and tuition and fees will not be charged. 

A student who has not attended any classes or received any student services may cancel the 
registration agreement up to 5:00 p.m. on the first day of classes in a term if the student obtains 
the approval of his or her college. To be relieved of the obligation to pay tiiition and fees, the 
student must surrender the permanent ID card and/or the individualized validation label that 
accompanies the Registration Statement of Charges and Aid. These items must be returned 
immediately to the Fee Assessment Section, Window 25, 100 Henry Administration Building, 
or by mail addressed to the Office of Admissions and Records. 

Students may not cancel the registration agreement once they have either attended a class 
or used other fee-supported services. If they leave the University, they must officially 
withdraw from the University. 



STUDENT COSTS 51 

Withdrawal from the University 

Students who have been charged tuition and /or fees and later withdraw from the University 
during an official refund period are assessed a nonrefundable charge in the amount of one-half 
of the Service Fee and the General Fee, plus the full Health Insurance Fee, Health Service Fee, 
and Transportation Fee (rounded if necessary to the next higher even dollar), or $30, whichever 
is greater. They continue to be covered by the health insurance program and are eligible to 
receive McKinley Health Center services, if fees for insurance and health service were paid, 
until the first day of on-campus registration for the next term. Use of intramural recreation 
facilities also is permitted. Students who have been exempted from the payment of any of these 
fees will have the nonrefundable charge reduced by the amount of the appropriate fee(s). 

Official refund periods are as follows: 
—In a semester, twelve-week term, or eleven-week summer law program, full refund, except 

for the nonrefundable charge, during the first ten days of instruction; no refund thereafter; 
— In an eight-week summer session, full refund, except for the nonrefundable charge, during 

the first seven days of instruction; no refund thereafter; and 
— For University terms of different lengths, refund periods are determined proportionately in 

accordance with the above principles. 

In case of extenuating circumstances, such as medically documented serious illness or 
injury, exception to these refund periods may be made by the director of admissions and 
records. The petition form to request a refund is available at Window 25, 100 Henry Admin- 
istration Building. 

Reduction of Program 

Students who paid tuition and/or fees and later reduce their registration to a lower credit 
range, as indicated in Table 4, receive full refund of the difference in tuition and fees specified 
for the ranges if the change is made during the periods designated above for withdrawal from 
the University. Thereafter, no refund is allowed. 

EXEMPTIONS AND WAIVERS OF TUITION AND FEES 

Appearing below are the waivers and exemptions available to students and the conditions 
under which they are granted. 

Recipients of waivers have had the amount for the service actually assessed and then waived 
by University policy. Such recipients are therefore eligible to receive the benefits of the service 
provided by the charge. 

An exemption carries no original charge, so recipients are not eligible to receive the benefits 
of the services provided by the charge. Students exempt from any particular charge may make 
individual arrangements with the service provider; such arrangements are subject to the 
policies of the individual provider. 

Unless otherwise exempted by Board of Trustees authorization, the payment of tuition and 
fees is required of academic employees of the University or allied agencies under appointment 
for less than 25 percent of full-time service, and of nonacademic employees under appointment 
for less than 50 percent of full-time service. 

For tuition and fees assessment purposes, a staff appointment must be to an established 
position for a specific amount of time and a salary commensurate with the percentage of time 
required, and it must require service for not less than three-fourths of the academic term. Note: 
A term is defined as running from the first day of registration through the last day of final 
examinations. Three-fourths of a term is defined as ninety-one days in a semester and forty- 
one days during the eight-week summer session. Staff tuition and fees privileges do not apply 
to students employed on an hourly basis in either an academic or nonacademic capacity, or to 
persons on leave without pay. 

University employees appointed to established civil service positions whose rates of pay are 
determined by negotiation, prevailing rates, and union affiliation are not considered as paid 
on an hourly basis and are entitled to the same tuition and fees privileges accorded to other staff 
members under the regulations. 

A student who resigns a staff appointment, or whose appointment is cancelled before 
rendering service for at least three-fourths of the term, becomes subject to the full amount of 
the appropriate tuition and fees for that term unless the student withdraws from University 



52 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



classes at the same time or before the appointment becomes void, or the student files a clearance 
form for graduation within one week after the resignation date. 

Students holding appointments, either as employees or as fellows, to the close of the second 
semester, and for whom tuition and/or the Service Fee have been provided by exemption or 
waiver, are entitled to the same exemption of tuition and/or the Service Fee for the summer 
session or term immediately following, providing they hold no appointments during the 
summer session or term. 

Tuition and fee waivers are not granted for the Executive M.B.A. Program or other self- 
supporting programs. 

Application Fee 

Applicants for admission must submit a $25 ($35 for international applicants) application fee 
(amount subject to change) to help defray processing costs. The fee is nonrefundable to 
applicants approved for admission and to denied applicants who submit complete or partial 
applications prior to the date all admission spaces are filled in the college and curriculum of 
their choice. Application fees will be returned to persons applying for admission to curricula 
that were closed to further admission or to programs not being offered. 

Exempt from payment of the application fee are: 
— Readmission applicants who are applying for a degree program if their last enrollment at the 

Urbana-Champaign campus was as an undergraduate degree candidate. 
- — Readmission applicants to the Graduate College who are applying to a graduate degree 
program in which they were enrolled within five years preceding the date of application. 
— Faculty and academic professional staff members and persons retired from the academic 

staff. 
— Permanent nonacademic employees of the University and other institutions and agencies 
under the University Civil Service System who have been assigned to established perma- 
nent and continuous nonacademic positions and who are employed for at least 50 percent 
of full time. 
— Staff members of certain specifically identified related agencies who are authorized tuition 

and/or Service Fee waivers. 
— Summer-session-only graduate degree applicants after their first registration for on-campus 

work. 
— Students registered at the University of Illinois at Chicago who wish to enroll at the Urbana- 
Champaign campus for the summer session only. 

Waivers of the application fee are authorized for: 

— Applicants who, because of extreme financial hardship, cannot meet the cost of the fee. In 
general, evidence of extreme financial hardship is a family income at or below the low 
standard family budget of the Bureau of Labor Statistics or the receipt of a testing waiver 
from the American College Testing Program of the College Entrance Examination Board. 
Applicants currently attending another collegiate institution may provide evidence of the 
financial package received at the institution. 

— Applicants under approved foreign exchange programs in which the University partici- 
pates, such as the Latin American Scholarship Program of American Universities and the 
African Scholarship Program of American Universities, and foreign students participating 
in approved exchange programs in which the waiver of fees is reciprocal. 

— Intercampus transfers at the same level: undergraduate to undergraduate, or graduate to 
graduate. 

— Applicants requesting a change in admission consideration from one campus of the 
University of Illinois to another for the same level and term. This would include applicants 
denied admission on one campus as well as applicants wishing to cancel admission or 
admission consideration on one campus for similar consideration on another campus. 
Students applying simultaneously to two campuses must pay the application fee at each 
campus. Undergraduate students applying for admission to a professional or graduate 
college on either of the two campuses must pay the application fee. 

— Students from other universities participating in the Committee on Institutional Coopera- 
tion (CIC) Program by taking courses at the University of Illinois. 

— Persons who are applying for CIC-supported fellowships to study at a CIC member 
institution. 



STUDENT COSTS 53 



— Graduate and professional applicants whose entry is advanced or delayed by action of their 
major departments are not required to pay a second application fee. 

— University of Illinois students applying for w^ork on a second campus as concurrent 
registrants, non-University of Illinois students applying as concurrent registrants from 
another institution with which the University has a reciprocal agreement, and students who 
have been concurrent enroUees the immediately preceding term and who plan to return to 
their primary campuses the following term. 

— Cooperating teachers and administrators who receive assignment of practice teachers, who 
receive assignment of students meeting the clinical experience requirement in teacher 
education, or who cooperate in research projects related to teacher education, cooperating 
librarians, school-nurse teachers, social welfare field supervisors, recreation field supervisors, 
health-education field supervisors, speech pathology supervisors, developmental child 
care field supervisors, educational psychology supervisors, continuing education supervisors, 
industrial relations field supervisors, and physicians participating without salary in the 
instructional program of the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Urbana-Champaign. 

— Students on leave-of-absence status on reentry. 

— Illinois Teacher of the Year recipients. 

Waiver of Tuition 

Tuition is waived for: 

— All faculty and academic professional employees (excluding graduate assistants) of the 
University on appointment for at least 25 percent of full-time service, provided the 
appointments require service for not less than three-fourths of a term. This waiver also 
applies to staff members of certain specifically identified related agencies whose positions 
are considered equivalent to academic positions of the University. 

— Graduate teaching and research assistants of the University on appointment for at least 25 
percent but not more than 67 percent of full-time service. Their appointments must require 
service for not less than three-fourths of the term. Those on appointment for 68 percent or 
more of full-time service pay tuition at the in-state rate and are eligible for waiver of the 
Service Fee only. Caution: Assistantship appointments are cumulative. For example, if a 
person holds two appointments, a 25-percent and a 50-percent assistantship appointment, 
he or she is ineligible for a tuition waiver. 

— Students holding academic appointments to the close of the final term of an academic year 
either as employees or fellows, and for whom tuition and /or the Service Fee have been 
provided through waiver, are entitled to a waiver of the same kinds of tuition and fees for 
the summer session or summer term immediately following, provided they hold no 
appointments during that summer session or term. Students holding summer session or 
summer term appointments as fellows or as employees are subject to such tuition and fees 
as would be assessed in accordance with the principles expressed above. 

— Nonacademic employees of the University, of any other institutions and agencies under the 
University Civil Service System, and of certain specifically identified related agencies in 
status appointments or in appointments designed to qualify for status in an established class 
(e.g., trainee, intern) for at least 50 percent of full-time services who register in regular 
University courses not to exceed: 

■ Six credit hours or two courses in a semester or quarter if on full-time appointment, 

■ Four credit hours if on a 75- to 99-percent timeappointment, or 

■ Three credit hours if on a 50- to 74-percent time appointment,provided they (1) meet 
conditions and eligibility for admission as prescribed by the Office of Admissions and 
Records, (2) are not students as defined in Civil Service Rule 7.7c, and (3) have approval 
by their employing departments of enrollment and of a makeup schedule to cover any 
time in course attendance during their regular work schedules. The waiver of tuition also 
applies to any additional hours of registration by employees that keep them within the 
same fee assessment credit range. Employees whose total registration is in a higher range 
than that authorized by their tuition waiver pay only the difference between the waiver 
authorization and the higher range in which their total registration places them. 

— Nonacademic employees in status, learner, trainee, apprentice, or provisional appointments 
may enroll without payment of tuition in regular courses directly related to their University 
employment not to exceed 1 credit hours per semester provided they have made application 
and received prior approval for enrollment as required by procedures issued by the director 
of nonacademic personnel and set forth in Policy and Rules — Nonacademic.

rendered within two consecutive semesters. The waiver will apply to the semester, quarter, 
or summer session of registration, as designated by the student, that is concurrent with, or 
following, the term of service, but must be applied no later than one calendar year from the 
end of the term of service. Concurrent registration on more than one campus of the 
University or in University extramural courses constitutes one semester, quarter, or session 
of eligibility for waiver. A similar waiver is authorized for cooperating librarians, school- 
nurse teachers, social welfare field supervisors, developmental child care field supervisors, 
recreation field supervisors, health-education field supervisors, speech pathology super- 
visors, educational psychology supervisors, continuing education supervisors, industrial 
relations field supervisors, and physicians who participate without salary in the instructional

Students totally exempt from payment of the Student Health Insurance Fee and therefore not 

eUgible for these benefits and services are: 

— Persons registered for doctoral thesis research in absentia. 

— Persons registered in off-campus courses and study abroad courses for zero credit. (If 
registered for more than zero credit, they are required to pay this fee.) 

— University employees registered at the request of their departments in zero credit courses 
especially established to improve their work. 

— Staff members who are registered as students but who are eligible for and participate in the 
mandatory State of Illinois Employees Insurance Program. 

— Staff members of certain specifically identified related agencies who are eligible automati- 
cally to receive hospital-medical coverage as an employment benefit at the cost of the 
employing agency. 

— Students presenting petitions and evidence of approved equivalent medical insurance 
coverage (See Student Health Insurance.) 

— Illinois Teacher of the Year recipients. 

— CIC Visiting Scholars and concurrent University of Illinois registrants. 

STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE 

The University Board of Trustees requires all students to be covered by health insurance 
through either a program provided by the University or one determined to be equivalent to 
that offered by the University. 

The Student Insurance Office is permanently located at 505 East Green Street, Room 228, 
Champaign. For the periods during which on-campus registration is held, the insurance office 
is located in the Armory. When the Post-Registration Service Center is open, an insurance 
station is operated in the Illini Union for the first (fall) and second (spring) semesters, and in 
the Henry Administration Building for the summer session. During the times either the 
Armory or the Service Center station is open, all exemptions, reinstatements, and applications 
for coverage must be made at that location. Students should consult the current Timetable for 
the dates and times of on-campus registration and operation of the post-registration service 
activities. 

Students registered in University classes for residence work are assessed a fee each 
registration to cover the cost of the program. A student presenting evidence of equivalent 
medical insurance coverage (a copy of the insurance policy or a schedule of benefits) may be 
exempted from payment of this fee upon approval of a petition submitted IN PERSON at one 
of the Insurance Office locations by no later than the final date established each term for a 
refund of tuition and fees. A signed waiver and assumption of responsibility is also required. 
Once approved, the exemption is continuous, and it is the student's responsibility to request 
reinstatement if coverage is desired . Reinstatements may be requested at any time up to the last 
day of coverage for a semester or term, but are subject to approval of a statement of medical 
history; there is no prorated premium. 
— First (fall) semester coverage extends through the first day of on-campus registration for the 

second (spring) semester. 
— Second (spring) semester coverage extends through the first day of on-campus registration 

for the summer session. 
— Summer session coverage extends through the first day of on-campus registration for the 

first (fall) semester. 



58 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



Premium rates for each semester or term may be found in the respective Timetable. 

Married students may purchase student health insurance to cover spouses and dependent 
children upon apphcation and payment of an additional premium at one of the Student 
Insurance Office locations within the first ten days of instruction of a semester or the first seven 
days of instruction in a summer session. Application and premium payments must be made 
for each semester or term. Premiums for spouses and children may not be charged to student 
accounts. 

Petitions for exemption or reinstatement, and applications for dependent or extension of 
coverage must be submitted IN PERSON. Items mailed to the Student Insurance Office or 
included with payments made by mail will be returned to the sender without action; such items 
must be resubmitted by the student in person within the stated deadline for the term in 
question.

Financial aid programs are designed to provide assistance to students who otherwise would 
not be able to pursue a postsecondary education. A basic principle of most aid programs is that 
parents and students pay for an education according to their capabilities. Student financial aid 
programs, therefore, are designed to supplement — not replace — a family's contribution. 

Even with relatively low tuition and fee charges, the cost of a college education still can be 
a financial burden for many families. (Estimated expenses for an undergraduate student at the 
University appear in Table 4 on page 59.) 

No student, however, should fail to apply for admission because his or her family feels that 
it is unable to pay the full cost of a college education. The Office of Student Financial Aid at 
the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (Fourth Floor, Turner Student Services 
Building, 610 East John Street, Champaign, IL 61820) administers several financial aid 
programs. If the family's resources are determined to be insufficient to meet necessary 
educational expenses, financial aid in the form of loans, employment, grants, and /or scholar- 
ships usually can be made available. 

The major sources of aid are federal and state government programs, as well as funds 
administered by the University. There also are funds for which a student applies directly to 
an awarding agency. 

Personnel in the Office of Student Financial Aid are available to those needing information 
on financial assistance. Office hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, 
except on all-campus holidays, telephone (217) 333-0100. 

THE APPLICATION PROCESS 

Follow the steps below to apply for federal, state, and University aid. 

NOTE: Students in veterinary medicine who do not have a bachelor's degree should follow 

these steps prescribed for undergraduate students. 

— Complete a need analysis document. The Family Financial Statement published by 

American College Testing or the Financial Aid Form published by the College Scholarship 

Service is preferred. 
— Apply for an Illinois Student Assistance Commission Monetary Award (Illinois residents 

only) and a Pell Grant^ by releasing application information to the U.S. Department of 

Education, the Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC), and the University. 



Mil Pell Grant applicants receive a Student Aid Report that indicates whether or not they are eligible for an 
award. All copies of this report must be submitted to the Office of Student Financial Aid. 



Transfer and Readmitted Students 

In addition to completing a need analysis document, transfer students and students who have 
been readmitted to the University who wish to apply for financial aid must provide financial 
aid transcripts for all institutions they have attended. Even students who have not received aid 
previously must provide this information before being considered for future assistance. 
Transcript forms can be obtained from the Office of Student Financial Aid. 

How to Obtain Need Analysis Documents 

Need analysis documents are available from high school and community college counselors 
and the Office of Student Financial Aid. The Family Financial Statement, additional financial 



FINANCIAL AID 61 

aid information, and an optional Supplemental Scholarship Information Form are in applica- 
tion packets available from the Office of Student Financial Aid. Students also may call the office 
at (217) 333-0100 and request documents via a recorded telephone message. 

Application Dates 

Students seeking financial assistance through the University are encouraged to apply early. 
When forms become available, they should be submitted for the next academic year as soon 
after January 1 as possible. 

The preferential filing date for first priority processing and equal consideration of financial 
aid applications is mid-March prior to the academic year for which aid is desired. Applications 
completed after mid-March will be considered according to the availability of funds. 

SOURCES OF FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE 

Several types of financial aid are available. Since the University's funds are limited, students 
also should seek assistance provided by national, state, and local organizations. 

Scholarships 

Most scholarships require high scholastic achievement, but financial need is an additional 
criterion. Recipients of need-based scholarships are determined from information supplied on 
need analysis documents and the optional Supplemental Scholarship Information Forms. 

The Merit Recognition Scholarship (MRS) administered by the Illinois Student Assistance 
Commission (ISAC) is awarded solely on the basis of scholastic achievement. The $1,000 
award is for entering freshmen who graduated in the top 5 percent of an Illinois high school 
class. Recipients must attend an Illinois postsecondary institution. The program is dependent 
upon annual funding by the state. Potential recipients are notified by the ISAC. 

The Paul Douglas Scholarship, another program not based on need and administered by the 
Illinois Student Assistance Commission, is for students in teacher education curricula. While 
amounts vary, a typical award for students attending the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign is $5,000. Recipients must have graduated in the top 1 percent of their high school 
classes. 

In addition to scholarships administered by the Office of Student Financial Aid and the 
ISAC, numerous agencies, organizations, and businesses provide funds to students in specific 
curricula. These outside agencies, organizations, and businesses often contact individual 
departments or units for nominations of potentially eligible recipients. For further informa- 
tion, students may wish to contact the departments in which they are enrolled or have been 
accepted for admission. 

Federal and State Grant Programs 
PELL GRANT 

A major source of financial assistance for undergraduate students is the federally funded Pell 
Grant program. For academic year 1991-92, awards ranged from $200 to $2,400. 

As indicated in The Application Process (see page 60), undergraduate aid applicants must 
submit all parts of their Pell Grant Student Aid Reports to complete their aid application files. 
While Pell Grant eligibility does not determine eUgibility for other financial aid, students must 
demonstrate that they have applied for this federal program before receiving assistance from 
the University's more limited resources. 

ILLINOIS STUDENT ASSISTANCE COMMISSION (ISAC) MONETARY AWARD 

The Illinois Student Assistance Commission Monetary Award is another major source of grant 
assistance to undergraduate Illinois residents attending colleges and universities in the state. 
Ranging from $300 to the full amount of tuition and fee charges at public institutions, this 
award is granted on the basis of demonstrated financial need. 

NOTE: The Illinois Student Assistance Commission also administers a State Scholar Program 
that recognizes scholastic achievement. It is not necessary for a student to be named a State 
Scholar to be eligible for a monetary award, nor does receiving such recognition guarantee 
eligibility for a monetary award. 



62 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

Grants Awarded by the Office of Student Financial Aid 

Awards from other federal and state grant programs are made by the Office of Student 
Financial Aid. Students do not apply specifically for these grants; anyone filing a need analysis 
document is considered. (See The Application Process, page 60.) 

The Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant is a federally funded grant program 
distinct from the Pell Grant (above) . The federal government annually provides postsecondary 
institutions with allocations from which awards are made. At UIUC during 1990-91, awards 
ranged from $200 to $2,000. 

Students for Equal Access to Learning (SEAL) and Student-to-Student Matching (STSM) 
grant programs are funded by voluntary student contributions and matching funds provided 
by the state through the Illinois Student Assistance Commission. Students at Urbana- 
Champaign initiated the SEAL program by referendum in 1970 and have reaffirmed it every 
four years since. STSM grants are awarded in accordance with rules prescribed by the Illinois 
Student Assistance Commission. During academic year 1990-91, awards ranged from $100 to 
$1,000. 

EMPLOYMENT: A FORM OF SELF-HELP FINANCIAL AID 

The Office of Student Financial Aid offers employment assistance to any University student 
seeking part-time work. Office hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except 
on all-campus holidays. 

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign employs more than 5,000 part-time student 
workers in offices, libraries, laboratories, farms, and food service units; each year these student 
employees earn more than $9 million. In addition, many students work in the community. 

Hourly wages for student workers vary according to the type of work and responsibilities 
involved, but equal at least the minimum wage ($4.25 as of April 1 991) . Most jobs require from 
ten to fifteen hours of work per week. Earnings can approximate 20 percent of a student's 
college expenses. 

Many students find food service work or temporary odd jobs before or after regular 
University hours. By arranging class schedules to have consecutive hours free each day for 
working, students may improve their employment opportunities. Job opportunities requiring 
advanced skills or knowledge offer excellent part-time, career-related experience to University 
students. 

College Work-Study 

The University of Illinois participates in College Work-Study, a federal financial aid program 
that helps colleges and universities provide additional jobs for students. To participate in the 
program, a student must have applied for need-based aid and have a College Work-Study 
award as part of a financial aid package from the Office of Student Financial Aid. 

A College Work-Study award recipient must check with the Office of Student Financial Aid 
to obtain assistance in job placement. This should be done at the beginning of the academic 
term. 

STUDENT LOANS: ANOTHER FORM OF SELF-HELP ASSISTANCE 
Low-Interest Loans Awarded by the University 

The Office of Student Financial Aid offers loans to students who demonstrate financial need. 
All on-time applicants for University aid are considered for low-interest loans from the 
University. The Office of Student Financial Aid, acting for the University of Illinois as lender, 
determines who is eligible for, and the amount of, a long-term loan. 

These loans normally carry an interest rate of 5 percent, and repayment is deferred until six 
months after the borrower ceases to be at least a half-time student. 

The University of Illinois also awards the federally funded Perkins Loan to students. These 
loans carry a 5 percent interest rate, and payment is deferred until either six or nine months 
after the borrower ceases to be a full-time student. Health Professions Student Loans, available 
to veterinary medicine students, carry a 5 percent interest rate with repayment beginning 12 
months after the borrower leaves school. 

Stafford Student Loan Program 

For students who attend college at least half time and who demonstrate financial need, the 
federal government has encouraged state governments to operate need-based, guaranteed 



FINANCIAL AID 63 

long-term loan programs in conjunction with commercial lenders. Lenders receive an interest 
subsidy, which the federal government pays until the borrower must begin to repay the loan. 
In addition, the government pays a supplemental subsidy to match the prevailing interest rate 
of conventional loans. 

More information is available from lending institutions and the Office of Student Financial 
Aid. 

General Terms of Long-Term Loan Programs 

Students who contemplate borrowing money for educational purposes should consider 
carefully the general terms and repayment requirements of the loan programs listed below. 
For specific terms pertaining to any loan, a borrower always should read the conditions that 
appear on the promissory note and question any provisions that seem unclear. 
NOTE: The interest rates and minimum repayment amounts for all loan programs indicated 
below were the prevailing figures at the time of publication. When obtaining any loan, a 
borrower should be aware of the interest being charged and the repayment requirements at the 
time of signing a promissory note. 

PERKINS LOAN 

Aggregate maximum: $9,000 for undergraduates. 

Interest rate: 5 percent per year simple interest on the unpaid principal balance; begins when 
first repayment is due. 

Forgiveness: In some cases; contact the Student Loan Collections Office, 125 Henry Adminis- 
tration Building, 506 South Wright Street, Urbana, IL 61801. 
Begin repayment: Nine or six months after ceasing to be a half-time student. 
Deferments: Up to three years for service in the armed forces. Peace Corps, or VISTA, or return

Minimum repayment: $30 plus interest per month or amount needed to repay principal and 
interest in ten years. 

UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS LONG-TERM LOAN

Deferments: By arrangement with the Student Loan Office, 125 Henry Administration Build- 
ing, 506 South Wright Street, Urbana IL 61801. 

Minimum repayment: $30 plus interest per month or amount needed to repay principal and 
interest in ten years. 

STAFFORD STUDENT LOANS 

Illinois Guaranteed Loan; United Student Aid Fund Loan; other state-guaranteed loan pro- 
grams. 

Aggregate maximum: Ranges from $17,250 for undergraduate students to $54,750 for graduate 
students including amount borrowed for undergraduate work. 

Interest rate: 8 or 9 percent per year simple interest on the unpaid principal balance; begins 
when first repayment is due; rate is currently 8 percent for students who have not borrowed 
previously (increases to 10 percent during the fifth year of repayment). 
Forgiveness: None. 

Begin repayment: Varies; usually six months after ceasing to be at least a half-time student. 
Minimum repayment: Varies; usually $50 per month plus interest or amount required to repay 
principal and interest in ten years. 

SUPPLEMENTAL LOANS TO STUDENTS AND PARENTS 

Three other loan programs are available directly from lending institutions such as banks, 
savings and loan associations, and credit unions. 

Through the PLUS program, parents or legal guardians may borrow as much as $4,000 per 
academic year for each dependent student. The maximum aggregate that can be borrowed for 
each student is $20,000. Interest varies and begins to accrue as soon as the loan is obtained, with 
repayment beginning within 60 days. 

For independent students, the Supplemental Loan for Students is available. As much as 



64 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



$4,000 per academic level may be borrowed up to an aggregate of $20,000, which includes any 
Stafford Student Loans. 

Interest begins to accrue as soon as the loan is obtained and is payable during the deferment 
period, but student borrowers may have repayments on the principal deferred until 30 days 
after they leave school permanently. 

The Illinois Opportunity Loan Program, available for the first time in academic year 1990- 
91, was established to help students from middle income families. Students must first apply 
for need-based aid; however, financial need is not a requirement for loan eligibility. Recipients 
must be at the sophomore level or above. Maximum annual amounts, which include Stafford 
Student Loans, are for sophomores: $2,625; for juniors and seniors: $4,000. Since funds are 
limited, loan availability is based upon the date of application. 

More information, including repayment provisions and schedules, is available from lending 
institutions. 

Approximate Monthly Payments Required by Loan Programs 

Monthly repayment schedules under various loan programs are somewhat comparable; 
variations occur depending upon the length of time allowed to repay the entire loan amount 
and the interest charged. The monthly payments given below are approximations to help 
potential borrowers estimate the financial obligations they will incur should they participate 
in any of these loan programs. 

PERKINS LOANS: UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS LONG-TERM LOANS 

A borrower has as long as ten years to repay either of these loans, with a minimum monthly 
repayment of $30 plus 5 percent per year simple interest. A student borrowing $5,000 and 
taking the full 120 months to repay the loan would make monthly payments of $42 plus 
interest. Since interest is charged only on the unpaid balance, the first payment of $62.83 
(including principal and interest) would be the highest amount scheduled to be charged in any 
month. 

STAFFORD STUDENT LOAN 

This loan program currently carries a simple interest rate of 8 percent per year, but students 
who have previously borrowed guaranteed loans may pay 7 or 9 percent interest. During the 
fifth year of repayment, interest on the unpaid balance is 10 percent. A student borrowing 
$5,000 and taking sixty months to repay a Stafford Loan would make monthly payments of 
$103 including interest; a student borrowing $10,000 and paying over a sixty-month period 
would repay at $207 per month including interest. 

Loan Repayment: Whose Responsibility? 

Any recipient of a student loan must recognize that such a loan is a debt incurred by the student, 
not the parents (except for PLUS loans to parents). The responsibility for understanding the 
conditions and regulations of the loan process, as well as the repayment schedule, rests with 
the student borrower. Additional information on the Perkins Loan program or the University 
of Illinois Long-Term Loan program as well as loan indebtedness is available in the Office of 
Student Financial Aid. Additional information on guaranteed loan programs is available from 
lending institutions and the Office of Student Financial Aid. 

SPECIALIZED AID PROGRAMS 

Although most financial aid award guidelines for Urbana-Champaign students are deter- 
mined by the Office of Student Financial Aid, some aid programs are administered by groups 
or agencies to which the student applies directly (besides the two major grant programs 
described earlier: Pell Grant and Illinois Student Assistance Commission Monetary Award). 

Programs for Veterans 
ILLINOIS VETERANS GRANTS 

An Illinois statute provides a grant for each veteran who has served honorably in the armed 
forces of the United States, provided that certain eligibility requirements are met. The grant 
covers the cost of resident tuition and most fees. The veteran must have been honorably 
discharged or separated from such service or received a discharge for medical reasons directly 
connected with active service. 

Members currently serving in the armed forces also are entitled to an Illinois Veterans Grant 
provided they have served at least one year and would be qualified for the grant if discharged.

were $1,300. Selection is made on the basis of scholastic records, participation in amateur 
athletics, and personal recommendations. Application materials are available from the Office 
of Student Financial Aid by mid-November and must be submitted by the end of January for 
the next academic year. 

ILLINOIS DEPARTMENT OF CHILDREN AND FAMILY SERVICES ASSISTANCE 

The department will cover the cost of resident tuition and fees for four years and will provide

printed materials is published by the Urbana-Champaign Office of Student Financial Aid. 
Copies of the Bibliotheca are available upon request. 

STUDENT EMERGENCY LOANS 

To meet expenses in emergencies, undergraduates may borrow as much as $200 for approxi- 
mately thirty days or until the last day of instruction for the semester, whichever comes first. 
In order to make more money available to a maximum number of students, applicants should 
borrow as little as is necessary for as short a period of time as possible. A service fee of $3 is 
charged. The interest charge on overdue loans is 18 percent per year on the unpaid balance. 
Students who are U.S. citizens should apply in person to the Office of Student Financial Aid, 
Fourth Floor, Turner Student Services Building. International students (noncitizens who are

Academic, administrative, and conduct regulations are published in the Code on Campus Affairs 
and Handbook of Policies and Regulations Applying to All Students. Students are responsible for 
complying with these regulations of the University and those of the colleges and departments 
from which they take courses. This publication is available to students in the lobby of the 
Turner Student Services Building, in 1 77 Henry Administration Building, and at the Information 
Desk in the Illini Union. A copy may also be obtained by writing to the Office of Admissions 
and Records. 

GRADING SYSTEM 

Faculty members have the responsibility to provide the University with an individual 
evaluation of the work of each student in their classes. Final course grades are entered on the 
student's permanent University record at the close of each semester, term, or session. The 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign uses the following grading system: A = excellent; 
B = good; C = fair; D = poor (lowest passing grade); E = failure, including courses dropped for 
academic irregularities; Ab = absent from the final examination without an acceptable excuse 
(counts as a failure). If a student is absent from a final examination and it is clear that taking 
the examination could not have resulted in a passing grade for the course, a grade of E may be 
given instead of Ab. In addition to the above grades, instructors in the College of Law are 
authorized to assign grades of B+ and C+. 

Computation of Scholastic Averages 

For numerical computation of scholastic averages, the following values are designated: A = 
5.0; B+ - 4.5; B = 4.0; C+ = 3.5; C = 3.0; D = 2.0; E and Ab = 1.0. 

Uniform Method for Calculation 

A uniform method for calculating undergraduate grade-point averages has been established 
for all undergraduate colleges on the Urbana-Champaign campus. These averages are 
calculated on the basis of all courses attempted for which grades and credits are assigned and 
that carry credit in accordance with the Courses catalog. Since courses offered by the religious 
foundations on or near the Urbana-Champaign campus are not official University courses and 
are not included in the Courses catalog, the grades earned in such courses will not be included 
in the calculation of any grade-point averages. Grades of S, U, CR, NC, and Pass (see next 
section on Other Symbols in Use) are reported on official University transcripts but are not 
included in grade-point averages since grade-points are not assigned to these letter grades. 
TMs method of calculation is used to determine honors, probation and drop status, financial 
aid and scholastic awards, and transfer between colleges on this campus. 

For the purpose of computing a grade-point average for graduation, only the grades 
received in those courses counting toward the degree, including grades in repeated courses, 
are included in the average. (See Grade-Point Requirements for the Bachelor's Degree on page 
74.) 

For the special method used to determine eligibility for transfer into the University, refer to 
the transfer admission policy on page 18. 



68 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

Other Symbols in Use (not included in computation of averages) 

W — Approved withdrawal without credit. 

EX — Temporarily excused. Approved extension of time to complete the final examina- 
tion or other requirements of the course. Applies to both undergraduate and 
graduate students. Entitles the student to an examination later without fee, or 
additional time to complete other requirements of the course. (Only the dean of the 
student's college may authorize such an extension of time in an individual case. A 
grade of EX that is not removed by the end of the first eight weeks of instruction in 
the next semester in which the student is enrolled in an undergraduate college on the 
Urbana-Champaign campus automatically becomes a grade of E. If the student 
receiving an excused grade does not reenroll on the Urbana-Champaign campus, 
the excused grade, if not removed, becomes an E after one calendar year.) 
CR — Credit earned. To be used only in courses taken under the credit-no credit grading 
option. (Instructors report the usual letter grades. Grades of A, B, and C will 
automatically be converted to CR.) 
NC — No credit earned. To be used only in courses taken under the credit-no credit 
grading option. (Instructors report the usual letter grades. Grades of D, E, and Ab 
will automatically be converted to NC.) 
IP — Course in progress. 
Miss — Missing grade. Instructor has failed to submit a grade for the student. 
DF — Grade temporarily deferred. To be used only in those thesis, research, and special 
problems courses extending over more than one semester that are taken by graduate 
students as preparation for the thesis and by undergraduate students in satisfaction 
of the requirements for graduation with honors, and in other approved courses that 
extend over more than one semester. (Requests for use of the DF grade in courses 
that extend over more than one semester, and therefore require postponement of the 
final grade report, must be submitted in writing by the executive officer of the 
department offering the courses to the dean of the appropriate college for concur- 
rence. A current list of courses that have received such approval is maintained in the 
Office of Admissions and Records.) 
S — Satisfactory, and 

U — Unsatisfactory. To be used only as final grades in graduate thesis research courses, 
in graduate and undergraduate courses given for zero credit, and in other courses 
that have been specifically approved by the head or the chairperson of the department 
concerned, with concurrence of the appropriate college dean. A current list of 
courses that have received such approval is maintained in the Office of Admissions 
and Records. 
Pass — To be used only in courses passed by special or proficiency examinations. A 
minimum grade of C is required to pass. 

Credit-No Credit Grading Option 

The credit-no credit grading option is designed to encourage students to explore areas of 
academic interest that they might otherwise avoid for fear of poor grades. All students 
considering this option are cautioned that many graduate and professional schools consider 
applicants whose transcripts bear a significant number of nongrade symbols less favorably 
than those whose transcripts contain none or very few. Likewise, in computing a preadmission 
grade-point average, some of these schools may convert the NC symbol into a failing grade 
since they do not know whether the actual grade was a D, E, or Ab. 

A full-time undergraduate student in good academic standing (not on probation) may, with 
the approval of his or her adviser, take a maximum of two courses each semester under the 
credit-no credit grading option. Part-time students may take one course each semester under 
this option. Summer session students may take one course under the credit-no credit option. 

A maximum of 18 semester hours earned under the credit-no credit grading option may be 
applied toward a baccalaureate degree at the Urbana-Champaign campus of the University. 
A correspondence course taken on a credit-no credit basis will be included in the 18-semester- 
hour credit-no credit limit. 

Any lower- or upper-division course may be chosen under the credit-no credit option except 
courses used to satisfy the University's general education requirements, courses designated by 
name or area by the major department for satisfying the major, and those specifically required 



GRADING SYSTEM AND OTHER REGULATIONS 69 



by name by the college for graduation. In cases of subsequent change of major, courses 
previously taken under the credit-no credit option in the new field may qualify for meeting 
major requirements. 

Undergraduate students must exercise the credit-no credit option for a course taken in 
residence only during on-campus registration, within the first eight weeks of instruction in a 
semester, during the first four weeks of an eight-week course taught in a fall or spring semester, 
or during registration or within the first four weeks of instruction during the summer session. 
Students may elect to return to the regular grade option by filing an amended request within 
the first eight weeks of instruction in a semester, within the first four weeks of instruction in 
an eight-week course taught during a semester, or within the first four weeks of instruction 
during the summer session. The credit-no credit option form must be properly approved and 
deposited in the college office. 

Instructors are not informed of those students in their classes who are taking work under the 
credit-no credit option, and they report the usual letter grades at the end of the course. These 
grades are automatically converted to CR or NC. Grades of C or better are required in order 
to earn credit. Credit-no credit courses are not counted toward the grade-point average but are 
included as part of the total credit hours. Final grades of CR or NC (for credit or no credit) are 
recorded on the student's permanent academic record and subsequently will not be changed 
to letter grades. 

CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS 

Classification of an undergraduate student is made by the Office of Admissions and Records 
based upon the number of credit hours earned, which includes credit earned by examination 
or accepted for transfer by the University whether or not such credit is applicable to a student's 
degree program. Classification for registration, certification, and assessment purposes is based 
on the following scale. 

Freshman standing 0-29.9 hours 

Sophomore standing 30-59.9 hours 

Junior standing 60-89.9 hours 

Senior standing 90 or more hours 

TRANSCRIPTS OF ACADEMIC RECORDS 

Former and currently enrolled students who have paid their University charges are entitled to 
receive, upon written request, transcripts of their academic records. Upon graduation or 
withdrawal from the University, any student with an outstanding loan is not issued a 
transcript until he or she has completed an exit interview with the Office of Student Accounts 
and Cashiering. Each transcript includes a student's entire academic record to date and current 
academic status. Partial transcripts are not issued. 

The charge for transcripts is $2 per copy (amount subject to change) . For written certification 
of attendance, degrees, or other data, the charge is $2 per copy (amount subject to change). For 
same-day service, available only if requested in person, the charge is $5 (amount subject to 
change) for the first transcript or certification and the regular fee for extra copies ordered at the 
same time. 

No charge is made if the request for a transcript is accompanied by a Teacher's Certification 
form. A student who submits an application for direct transfer admission to the University of 
Illinois at Chicago through the Urbana admissions office, 1 77 Henry Administration Building, 
will have a transcript included with it at no charge. 

Telephone requests for transcripts cannot be honored. Transcripts are released only by 
written request to whomever students or former students designate. A written request 
accompanied by a check or money order made payable to the University of Illinois should be 
sent to the Office of Admissions and Records (see the inside back cover for address information) . 

STUDENT RECORDS POLICY 

It is University policy to comply fully with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 
1974 as amended. Guidelines and regulations for discharge of the University's obligation 
under this act are contained in the Code on Campus Affairs and Handbook of Policies and Regulations

participation in officially recognized activities and sports; and institutions previously attended. 

FALSIFICATION OF DOCUMENTS 

Any student who, for purposes of fraud or misrepresentation, falsifies, forges, defaces, alters, 
or mutilates in any manner any official University document or representation thereof may be 
subject to discipline. Some examples of official documents are identification cards, program 
request forms, receipts, transcripts of credits, library documents, and petitions for change in 
residence status. 

Any applicant who knowingly withholds information or gives false information on an 
application for admission or readmission may become ineligible for admission to the University 
or may be subject to discipline. 

Any student who knowingly withholds information or gives false information in any 
document or materials submitted to any member or agent of the University may be subject to 
discipline. 

IDENTIFICATION CARDS 

Each new student is issued a permanent photo identification card, which is validated for every 
subsequent term in which the student registers; the ID card remains the property of the 
University. This ID card must be retained by the student while registered at the University. A 
student who alters or intentionally mutilates a University ID card, who uses the ID card of 
another, or who allows his or her own ID card to be used by another may be subject to 
discipline. 

A charge of $1 7 (amount subject to change), payable at the ID Center, Window 27, 1 00 Henry 
Administration Building, is made for replacing each lost, mutilated, confiscated, or stolen 
photo ID card. A charge of $1 (amount subject to change) is made for the replacement of each 
lost, mutilated, confiscated, or stolen ID validation label. 

Identification cards for spouses of students are available without cost at the ID Center. 



GRADING SYSTEM AND OTHER REGULATIONS 71 



STUDENTS IN DEBT TO THE UNIVERSITY 

A penalty of $15 (amount subject to change) is assessed for each check students present to the 
University that is returned for insufficient funds or another reason. Additional penalties, 
including dismissal from the University, may be imposed on students who permit their 
University accounts to become delinquent or who issue checks that are returned to the 
University unpaid. 

Students who are in debt to the University at the end of any academic term may not be 
permitted to register in the University again. They are not entitled to receive diplomas, official 
statements, or transcripts of credits until the indebtedness has been paid or suitable arrangements 
for payment have been made, unless there are pending bankruptcy petitions of the students 
seeking a discharge of all such indebtedness or all such indebtedness has been discharged. 

AUTOMOBILES, MOTORCYCLES, MOTOR SCOOTERS, MOTOR-DRIVEN 
BICYCLES, AND BICYCLES 

All students, their spouses, and dependent children with valid vehicle operator permits to 
operate automobiles, motorcycles, motor scooters, and motor-driven bicycles in Illinois may 
operate them on the Urbana-Champaign campus, provided they comply with University and 
state regulations. Public parking facilities are extremely Umited near the campus. Unless 
students register their cars with the Uruversity, there is little opportunity for them to park near 
the campus when classes are in session or overnight. By registering their motor vehicles with 
the University (a fee is charged), students may park or store their vehicles either in some 
University parking lots or on some University streets. A permit to park or store a car in 
University rental lots requires payment of an additional fee. 

Bicycles provide the best transportation on campus since bike paths connect the major 
campus buildings. All student bicycles must be registered; there is no fee for this registration. 

Information about the operation of motor vehicles and bicycles by students is available from 
the Division of Campus Parking, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 505 East Green 
Street, Champaign, IL 61 820, (21 7) 333-721 7.

GRADE-POINT REQUIREMENTS FOR THE BACHELOR'S DEGREE 

All candidates for a degree must have at least a 3.0 (A = 5.0) grade-point average on all 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign credits counted for graduation requirements and 
at least a 3.0 grade-point average on the combined transfer and University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign credits counted for graduation requirements. Certain colleges have established 
higher scholastic graduation requirements for specific curricula. (Grades in courses taken at 
the other campus of the University are counted as transferred.) 

When a course has been repeated, both the original and subsequent grades are included in 
the average if the course is acceptable toward graduation, but the credit is counted only once. 
An original grade is not removed from the student's record for a course subsequently passed 
by special examination. 

Students who do not meet the requirements stated above may graduate if they have the 
minimum grade-point average calculated by either of the following alternative methods: 
— Courses in which grades of D or E have been recorded are excluded, not to exceed a total 
of 1 semester hours completed prior to the last 30 hours of work completed at the University 
of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and counted for graduation requirements, or 
— A grade-point average of no less than 3.1 is calculated for the last 60 semester hours of work 
counted for graduation requirements and completed at the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign, except in those curricula for which a higher scholastic graduation requirement 
is specified. 

Each college office, on request, will inform students regarding the scholarship regulations 
of that college. 



GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS AND HONORS 75 



RESIDENCE REQUIREMENTS FOR GRADUATION 
First Bachelor's Degree 

In addition to meeting specific course and scholastic requirements, each candidate for a 
bachelor's degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign must spend either the 
first three years earning not less than 90 semester hours or the last year (two semesters, or the 
equivalent) earning not less than 30 semester hours in residence at the Urbana-Champaign 
campus, uninterrupted by any work in another institution. Only those courses that are 
applicable toward the degree sought may be counted in satisfying the above minimum 
requirements. (Either three twelve-week terms or four eight-week sessions are the equivalent 
of two semesters). 

Concurrent attendance at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and another 
collegiate institution does not interrupt the residence requirement for graduation. 

Credit earned through the Advanced Placement Program is included in the first 90 semester 
hours and is not considered as interrupting residence. 

Credit allowed toward graduation for completion of courses of study offered by the 
religious foundations located in Urbana-Champaign is not counted as interrupting residence 
or counted toward satisfying minimum residence requirements for graduation. 

Attendance at another institution under the Committee on Institutional Cooperation 
Program or participation in the University of Illinois foreign study programs or the Study 
Away from Campus Programs for which students are registered in Urbana-Champaign 
courses does not interrupt residence, and credits earned through these programs are counted 
as residence credit toward graduation, provided that within the last two years of study at least 
30 semester hours have been earned in courses taken on the Urbana-Champaign campus. 

Transfer students from junior colleges must, after attaining junior standing, earn at the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign or any other approved four-year institution at 
least 60 semester hours acceptable toward their degrees, in addition to meeting the usual 
residence requirement for degrees from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. 

Students transferring from the University of Illinois at Chicago to the Urbana-Champaign 
campus as candidates for degrees must satisfy the residence and academic requirements for 
graduation established for the curriculum entered on the Urbana-Champaign campus. Since 
the campuses do not have identical academic programs, a student who is contemplating a 
transfer should consult with the college into which he or she expects to transfer. 

A student attending as "visitor only" is not considered a "student in residence." 

A student who requests that the residence requirement for graduation be waived must 
submit a petition to the dean of his or her college, who will take action on the petition. 

A student on drop status may not graduate until he or she has been reinstated by the dean 
of the student's college. A student who meets the conditions stated in the first paragraph of 
this section must notify the dean of his or her college of the student's intent to apply credit 
earned elsewhere toward the degree requirements and arrange to have a final official transcript 
from the other collegiate institution(s) attended sent to the Office of Admissions and Records. 

Second Bachelor's Degree 

A student who has received one bachelor's degree may be permitted to receive a second 
bachelor's degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign provided that all 
specified requirements for both degrees are fully met and that the curriculum offered for the 
second degree includes at least the final 30 semester hours that are earned in residence at the 
Urbana-Champaign campus and not counted for the other degree. 

The second bachelor's degree may be earned either concurrently with or subsequent to the 
first degree. 

A candidate for a second bachelor's degree must meet the same residence requirements as 
for the first degree. 

Only those courses that are acceptable toward the degree sought may be counted in 
satisfying the above minimum requirements. This includes the 30 additional hours required 
for the second degree. 



76 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS 

A minimum of 6 hours each in the humanities, the social sciences, and the natural sciences is 
required for graduation in all undergraduate curricula. Approved courses should be distrib- 
uted over at least three years. Upon request, individual colleges will provide students v^ith the 
general education requirements for their curricula and the list of courses acceptable for this 
purpose. 

The Campus Senate, the faculty General Education Board, and the colleges and departments 
are working to implement enhanced general education requirements. Some changes in 
requirements are expected to take effect in fall 1991 . Thus, new students should confirm their 
general education requirements by consulting college and departmental offices, handbooks, 
or advisers. 

ENGLISH REQUIREMENT FOR GRADUATION 

Satisfactory proficiency in the use of English is a requirement for all undergraduate degrees 
awarded at the Urbana-Champaign campus of the University. This proficiency can be certified 
by the satisfactory completion of a one-semester, 4-hour course of either Rhetoric 105 or 108 or 
by the satisfactory completion of the two-semester, 6-hour sequence of Speech Communica- 
tion 111 and 112 (Verbal Communication). A student with a sufficiently high score on either 
the ACT English Subtest or the SAT Verbal Test and high performance on a written essay 
examination will satisfy the English requirement for graduation. 

If the academic credentials of a transfer student do not indicate fulfillment of course work 
equivalent to the University of Illinois's English graduation requirement, the student may be 
administered the Rhetoric Placement and Proficiency Examination, the ESL Placement Test, or 
the Transfer Writing Examination. 

Under certain conditions, students may satisfy the English requirements for graduation 
through satisfactory completion of courses offered by the Division of English as an Interna- 
tional Language. Satisfactory completion of courses (ESL 114 and ESL 115) satisfies the English 
graduation requirement. Evidence that a student is eligible to enroll in these courses is 
established by a satisfactory score on the ESL Placement Test, a test of oral and written English 
administered by the Division of English as an International Language. On the basis of this test, 
the student will be enrolled in the course or courses appropriate to his or her English needs. 

If a student's score on the ESL Placement Test is higher than the proficiency level of students 
in ESL 115, that student must take the Rhetoric Placement and Proficiency Examination offered 
by the Department of English. 

Those students whose deficiency in English requires that they take one or more of the 
noncredit courses ESL 1 09, ESL 110, and ESL 111 are not allowed to register for a full academic 
program and must complete their noncredit requirements before enrolling in the ESL 114-115 
sequence. 

FOREIGN LANGUAGE COURSES 

Except as prohibited or limited by the established policy of the student's college, credit in 
University foreign language courses taken to remove high school entrance deficiencies may, 
at the discretion of the college, be counted in the total hours required for graduation or be 
accepted in partial or complete satisfaction of the foreign language requirement for the degree. 
Normally no more than 10 hours of proficiency credit for the study of a single foreign 
language at the elementary and intermediate level shall be counted for graduation in the 
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Additional credit may be granted for advanced courses 
emphasizing literature and language structure rather than communicative competence in the 
language. 

RELIGIOUS FOUNDATION COURSES 

Courses of study offered by the religious foundations located in Urbana-Champaign that have 
been approved by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Committee on Courses and 
Curricula are accepted for credit by the University provided that the student is currently 
registered in University courses. Registration in these courses is limited to students of 
sophomore standing or above who are currently registered on campus in University courses 
and must be approved in advance by the dean of the student's college. Grades in these courses 



GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS AND HONORS 77 

are not included in the student's all-University scholastic average, and the courses are not 
counted as interrupting residence or toward satisfying minimum residence requirements for 
graduation. 

A maximum of 1 semester hours of credit in religious foundation courses may, with the 
approval of the dean of the college concerned, be counted toward graduation. 

The above credit limitations and other restrictions apply to religious foundation courses 
only and not to courses offered by the University of Illinois Program in Religious Studies. 

CORRESPONDENCE AND EXTRAMURAL COURSES 

After matriculation, a student may count toward his or her degree, with the approval of the 
dean of the student's college, as many as 60 semester hours of credit earned in extramural and/ 
or correspondence study, provided that: 

— The student completes all of the remaining requirements for the degree in residence at the 

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, or 
— The student presents acceptable residence credit for work done elsewhere and completes 

requirements needed for his or her degree in residence at the University. In all cases, the 

senior year (two semesters of not less than 30 semester hours) must be done in residence at 

the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. 

A student who has completed the first three years in residence at the University of Illinois 
at Urbana-Champaign, earning a minimum of 90 semester hours, may do all or part of the 
senior year in correspondence or extramural study, subject to meeting all of the requirements 
for the degree. 

Credit for correspondence work taken with fully accredited institutions may be allowed, but 
only on approval of the dean of the student's college. 

THESES 

If a thesis is to be submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for a bachelor's degree, 
the subject must be announced by the end of the sixth week of instruction in the first semester 
of the student's senior year. The work must be done under the direction of a professor in the 
department concerned and must be applicable to the curriculum in which a degree is expected. 
A maximum of 10 hours of credit in thesis work nnay be counted toward a bachelor's degree. 

UNDERGRADUATE CREDIT FOR SERVICE AND EDUCATION IN THE ARMED 
FORCES 

The University grants registered students college credit for certain training and experience in 
the armed forces of the United States. A student who completes military service in the U.S. Air 
Force, Army, Marine Corps, Navy, or Coast Guard, including basic or recruit training of six 
months or more, is awarded 4 semester hours of credit in basic military science upon 
presentation of evidence on Form DD-214 of honorable discharge or transfer to the reserve 
component. 

Correspondence courses for which the student has passed the end-of-course examination 
prepared by the U. S. Armed Forces Institute, that are baccalaureate-oriented, and that 
correspond in level and content to courses offered at the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign are recognized for credit. 

Credit recommendations in the Guide to the Evaluation of Education Experiences in the Armed 
Forces (published by the American Council on Education) for military service school training 
will be considered for transfer credit as follows: (1) credit will be granted for college-level, 
baccalaureate-oriented training and education, (2) vocational credit related to the student's 
curriculum choice will be referred for consideration to the dean of the college in which the 
student is enrolled, and (3) duplicate credit will be deleted. Applicability of military credit 
toward a particular degree is determined by the dean of the college. Additional information 
may be obtained from the Office of Admissions and Records.

GRADUATION WITH HONORS 

Recognition for superior academic achievement is given by the University and by the colleges 
and departments. 

University Honors 

Continuous academic achievement is recognized by inscribing the student's name on a Bronze 
Tablet that hangs on a wall of the Main Library. To qualify, an undergraduate student must: 
— Have at least a 4.5 (A = 5.0) cumulative grade-point average for all work taken at the 

University through the academic term prior to graduation, and 
— Rank, on the basis of his or her cumulative grade-point average (including University of 
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and transfer work, if any) through the academic term prior 
to graduation, in the top 3 percent of the students in his or her college graduating class. 

Transfer students, in addition to meeting the general rules for qualification, must satisfy two 
additional requirements: they must have cumulative University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign grade-point averages as high as the lowest ones listed for students in their colleges 
who qualify on the basis of having completed all of their work at the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign; and they must earn 40 or more semester hours at the University of Illinois 
at Urbana-Champaign through the academic term prior to graduation. 

For the purpose of this award, college graduating class means all students receiving bachelor's 
degrees from the same University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign college between July 1 of 
each year and June 30 of the next. 

For the purpose of this award, academic term prior to graduation means: for August graduates, 
the preceding spring semester; for October graduates, the preceding spring semester; for 
January graduates, the preceding summer session; for May graduates, the preceding fall 
semester. The list will be determined each year after grades for the fall semester are available. 
To be considered in the calculation of University Honors, all grade corrections must be 
recorded by the end of the eighth week of the spring semester. 

College Honors 

Each college, with the approval of the Urbana-Champaign Senate and the Board of Trustees, 
prescribes the conditions under which degree candidates may be recommended for gradua- 
tion with honors. These distinctions are noted on students' diplomas, permanent University 
records, and official transcripts of credits. Detailed information concerning the requirements 
for graduation with honors is included in the sections of this catalog applying to the individual 
colleges and departments. 

PHI KAPPA PHI 

The national honor society of Phi Kappa Phi recognizes and encourages superior scholarship 
in all academic disciplines. To be eligible, a junior (72 to 89 letter-graded hours) must have a 
minimum cumulative grade-point average of 4.75 and a scholastic rank in the upper 5 percent 
of the junior class; seniors (90 or more letter-graded hours) must have a minimum cumulative 
grade-point average of 4.5 and a scholastic rank in the upper 10 percent of the senior class. 

Invitations to membership are mailed to all eligible juniors and seniors, and an initiation 
program is held near the end of each semester. 

THE DEAN'S LIST 

The names of undergraduates who have achieved grade-point averages for a given semester 
in the top 20 percent of their college class will be included on a list prepared for the dean of the 
college. (In the College of Fine and Applied Arts, the names of eligible undergraduates who 
have achieved grade-point averages for a given semester in the top 20 percent of all students 
in their curriculum will be listed.) This list is publicized within the University and is sent to news 
agencies throughout the state. Names of James Scholars are preceded by an ampersand (&). 
To be eligible for Dean's List recognition, students must complete successfully 14 academic 
semester hours, of which at least 12 must be taken for letter grade (A, B, C, D, E, AB). Only 
grades in hand at the time the list is compiled will be considered in determining eligibility 



GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS AND HONORS 79 



unless it can be established that the final grade average will be above the minimum required 
regardless of the grade eventually received; students with EX, DF, or missing grades will be 
added as soon as letter grades are received and eligibility can be determined. Credits earned 
during the semester through proficiency, CLEP, and advanced placement examinations may 
not be counted toward the 14-semester-hour requirement. 

Individual colleges may modify the above criteria, and interested students should contact 
their college offices for further information. 

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences has different eligibility requirements, which are 
given in detail in the LAS Student Handbook.

Reserve Officers' Training Corps 

ArmyROTC 80 

Naval ROTC 82 

Air Force ROTC 84 



ARMY ROTC 

Military training has been given at the Urbana-Champaign campus since the University 
opened in 1868. Originally mandatory for all male undergraduates under the land-grant 
charter, the program became entirely voluntary in 1964. The Army Reserve Officers' Training 
Corps is open to all university students, regardless of their academic majors or levels. 

Program Description 

The Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps is an elective program that provides career 
opportunities, leadership experience, adventure training, and financial support to participat- 
ing students. The program is a consecutive series of elective courses, leadership laboratories, 
and field trips designed to prepare young men and women for leadership positions as officers 
in the U. S. Army, Army Reserve, and Army National Guard. The leadership principles and 
management techniques presented, however, are equally applicable to success in any field. 
Financial support is provided both by state, federal, and named scholarships and by a 
subsistence allowance of $100 a month. 

Leadership Training 

Students' leadership is continuously developed through a Leadership Assessment Program 
(LAP). The LAP evaluates students' leadership potential in a variety of leadership roles and 
provides immediate feedback to students. Emphasis is on hands-on leadership experience. 
Cadets plan, organize, and evaluate much of the laboratory and field training. 

Adventure Training 

Training in mountaineering techniques (rappelling), land navigation, survival, rifle marks- 
manship, and waterborne operations is given to every student. Some students are selected to 
attend the army parachute school, helicopter operations school, and leadership training with 
active and reserve units as officers. 

Financial Assistance Scholarships 

Enrollment in Army ROTC can provide significant financial support to interested students, 
regardless of family financial need. Army ROTC offers three financial aid programs that 
provide support to Army ROTC cadets: the Army ROTC Federal Scholarship program, the 
Illinois State ROTC Scholarship program, and the Simultaneous Membership Program of the 
Army ROTC and the National Guard or Army Reserve. The federal scholarships are 
competitive scholarships available for college-bound high school juniors and seniors, and 
college freshmen and sophomores. These scholarships provide funds for tuition, university 
fees, books, and $100 a month for four, three, or two years, depending on the time of 
application. Illinois State ROTC Scholarships are competitive scholarships that provide full 
tuition waivers for ROTC students who are residents of the state. The Simultaneous Member- 
ship Program allows students to join the Army Reserve or Army National Guard and also to 
join Army ROTC. The program provides the student with increased reserve forces pay, 
benefits of the New GI Bill, and $100 a month from Army ROTC. Engineering students who 
are enrolled in Army ROTC are eligible for other additional financial aid through named 
scholarships. These students should contact the ROTC office for further details. All Army 
ROTC cadets, as a minimum, receive $1 00 a month for their last two years in the program if they 
meet the requirements for continuing. 

Career Opportunities 

The training and instruction are designed to prepare students to serve as officers in the U.S. 
Army. This may be full time, on active duty, or part time with the Army Reserve or National 



RESERVE OFFICERS' TRAINING CORPS 81 

Guard. Service with the reserve forces allows pursuit of a civilian career while simultaneously 
serving the country as an officer. Approximately half of Army ROTC graduates pursue civilian 
careers and have discovered that their ROTC leadership training is an invaluable tool for 
success. For engineering students, a COOP program is available to allow students to work with 
government laboratories and projects while participating in the Army ROTC program. 

Program Options 

1. Four years — the student attends one military science course each semester. 

2. Three and one-half years — the student takes two military science courses during the first 
semester, then one course each semester thereafter. 

3. Three years — the student takes two military science courses per semester during the first 
year, then one course each semester thereafter. 

4. Two years — those students with prior military experience (junior ROTC, prior military 
service) may receive credit for the first two years of Army ROTC and begin with the second 
two years. Also, students who are interested in the program, but who were not involved in 
ROTC during their first two years of college, may join during these last two years by 
attending a six-week camp during the summer, for which each student receives more than 
$600 in pay. 

Academic Program 

The first- and second-year educational program in military science consists of the courses MIL 
5111,113, 121, and 1 23. These 1 -hour courses are designed to give students a basic understand- 
ing of the national defense establishment, the role of the U.S. Army officer, military tactics, and 
military-related skills. 

The third and fourth years of military science, consisting of MIL S 231 , 233, 241 , and 243, are 
designed to develop the skills and attitudes vital to assuming leadership positions. 

A leadership laboratory is required with each academic course. The leadership laboratory 
is one hour per week for the first two years and two hours per week the last two years. Practical 
experience is provided in military and leadership skills in a framework that provides 
maximum opportunity to develop each student's self-confidence, decisiveness, and leader- 
ship potential. 

To develop the student's academic diversity, each student must complete a course in math 
reasoning, computer literacy, human behavioral science, oral/written communications, and 
military history, prior to being commissioned. These courses may be used to fulfill other 
academic degree requirements.

82 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



NAVAL ROTC 

The Naval ROTC program is a professional educational opportunity in which a student can 
earn a regular or a reserve commission in the U.S. Navy or Marine Corps while pursuing a 
baccalaureate degree. This professional foundation is then developed and broadened during 
active service as a commissioned officer after graduation and commissioning. A student may 
be enrolled in either the Navy Scholarship Program or the Navy College Program 
(nonscholarship). There are four-year programs for entering freshmen and two-year pro- 
grams for students who have already completed part of their college education. 

For scholarship students, no military obligation is incurred until the beginning of the 
sophomore year. College program students incur the military obligation at the commencement 
of the junior year. Naval science courses are open to all students, upon consent of the 
Department of Naval Science, even if they are not enrolled in either of these programs. 

Four- Year Navy-Marine Scholarship Program 

The Navy-Marine Scholarship Program provides the student with full tuition, fees, books, and 
a tax-free subsistence pay (currently $100 per month) for as long as four years. A student in 
good standing and enrolled in a degree program that requires longer than four years to 
complete may apply for fifth-year scholarship benefits with agreement to serve additional 
active service after commissioning, or the student may take a leave of absence of as long as a 
year to finish the baccalaureate degree. Upon graduation, scholarship students are commis- 
sioned in the regular U.S. Navy or U.S. Marine Corps and serve four years on active duty. 
Newly commissioned officers who qualify have the opportunity to continue their education 
toward advanced degrees. 

Scholarship selection in national competition is based on the applicant's Scholastic Aptitude 
Test (SAT) or American College Testing (ACT) Program score, high school and college records, 
aptitude for naval service as judged by interviews, and by prescribed physical quaUfications. 

Scholarship students have an opportunity during the summer to practice what they have 
learned in the classroom. Three summer training periods of approximately four to six weeks 
each are taken by students either at sea aboard a U.S. Navy vessel; at a squadron or amphibious 
base, or at a naval air station; or on board a nuclear submarine. Students who choose to enter 
the U.S. Marine Corps spend their last summer training period at the Marine Corps Officer 
Candidate School in Quantico, Virginia. 

Four-Year Navy-Marine College Program 

A Navy-Marine College Program student receives all required uniforms and naval science 
textbooks while enrolled, and a subsistence allowance (currently $100 per month) during the 
junior and senior years. If the degree program requires longer than four years to complete, the 
student may apply for a fifth-year benefit of subsistence pay with agreement of additional 
active service after commissioning or may take a leave of absence as long as a year to finish the 
baccalaureate degree. Upon graduation, the college program student is commissioned in the 
U.S. Naval or U.S. Marine Corps Reserve and serves three of the six years of reserve obligation 
on active duty. 

A student may apply for admission to the college program through the professor of naval 
science, who makes the final selection. This selection is based on academic, physical, and 
military aptitude criteria. College program students also attend one summer training session, 
usually after the junior year. 

College program students are eligible to be selected for the scholarship program through 
recommendation of the professor of naval science; the decision is made by the chief of naval 
education and training. These students are also eligible to receive Illinois State ROTC 
Scholarships (if residents of this state) after at least one semester in the college program. These 
scholarships are awarded annually on a competitive basis and cover tuition only. 

Two-Year College Program 

This program provides a student with all required uniforms, naval science textbooks, and 
subsistence pay (currently $100 per month). Applicants should have two remaining years of 
study at the Urbana-Champaign campus. During the summer before the junior year, students 
attend a six-week course of military instruction at the Naval Science Institute at Newport, 
Rhode Island. Transportation costs and salaries are paid to the students. After successful 
completion of the course, they join their contemporaries in the college program and also may 



RESERVE OFFICERS' TRAINING CORPS 83 



be eligible for appointment to scholarship status, depending on their backgrounds and 
academic performances. College program students participate in a four-to-six-week summer 
at-sea training period between their junior and senior years, as do their scholarship counter- 
parts. 

Two-Year Scholarship Program 

Acceptance into the Naval ROTC Two-Year Scholarship Program training option guarantees 
a student a two-year Naval ROTC scholarship. Summer training and other benefits, as well as 
Naval ROTC training during the junior and senior years, are the same as those for the two-year 
college program. Prerequisites for this option include at least one year each of calculus and 
physics, with a C average or better. A minimum grade-point average of 3.0 is required, with 
a preferred major of mathematics, chemistry, physics, or engineering. 

State Navy ROTC Scholarship 

For information regarding the state Navy ROTC scholarships, see page 66.

In addition to mental, physical, and aptitude requirements, men and women in the Naval 

ROTC program must: 

— Be citizens of the United States. 

— Be between 17 and 21 years of age by September 1 of the year in which enrollment begins 
(those contemplating a bachelor's degree that requires five years to complete must be 
younger than age 20 on June 30 of that year). If younger than age 18, they must have the 
consent of their parents. Scholarship students must be younger than age 25 on June 30 of the 
calendar year in which they are commissioned. College program students must meet 
identical requirements except that they must be younger than age TP n on June 30 of the 
calendar year in which commissioned.

AIR FORCE ROTC 

The Air Force ROTC program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign offers the 
opportunity for a professional training program for those college men and women who desire 
to serve in the U.S. Air Force as commissioned officers. Air Force ROTC offers both a four-year 
and a two-year program leading to a commission as an Air Force officer. Four-year program 
students complete both the general military course and the professional officer course. Two- 
year students complete only the professional officer course. All registered University of 
Illinois students may take University-accredited aerospace courses. 

General Military Course 

The educational program for the first two years in Air Force Aerospace Studies consists of 
AFAS 111, 112, 121, and 122. These 1-hour courses are designed to give students basic 
information on world military systems and the role of the U.S. Air Force in the defense of the 
free world. All required aerospace studies textbooks and uniforms are provided free. The 
general military course is open to all students at the University of Illinois without advance 
application and does not obligate students to the Air Force in any way. 

Field Training 

Air Force ROTC field training is offered during the summer months at selected Air Force bases 
throughout the United States. Students in the four-year program participate in four weeks of 
field training, usually between their sophomore and junior years. Students applying for entry 
into the two-year program must successfully complete six weeks of field training prior to 
enrollment in the professional officer course. The Air Force pays all expenses associated with 
field training. 

The major areas of study in the four-week field training program include junior officer 
training, aircraft and air crew orientation, career orientation, survival training, base functions 
and Air Force environment, and physical training. The major areas of study included in the 
six-week field training program are essentially the same as those conducted at four-week field 
training plus the general military course including AFAS 102 — Leadership Laboratory. 

Professional Officer Course 

The third and fourth years of Air Force aerospace studies instruction, consisting of AFAS 231, 
232, 241, and 242, are designed to develop skills and attitudes vital to the career professional 
officer. Students completing the professional officer course are commissioned as officers in the 
U. S. Air Force upon college graduation. All students in the course receive a nontaxable 
subsistence allowance of $100 per month during the two-semester academic year. Students 
wanting to enter the course in nonflying categories should apply early in the spring semester 
in order to begin this course of study in the following fall semester. Students applying for pilot 



RESERVE OFFICERS' TRAINING CORPS 85 



and navigator categories should apply in the fall semester the year before entering the 

professional officer course. Final selection of students rests with the professor of aerospace 

studies. Each member of the course must: 

— Be a citizen of the United States. 

— Be a full-time student at the University. 

— Have at least two years remaining at the University as an undergraduate and/or graduate 

student upon entry to the program.

reserve commission in the U.S. Air Force upon graduation, and serve four years on active 

duty after graduation. Pilot candidates agree to serve ten years, and navigators six years, on 

active duty after completion of flying training. 
— Enlist in the Air Force Obligated Reserve Section; this enUstment is terminated upon 

acceptance of a commission. 
— Possess and maintain a quality grade-point average meeting the requirements of the 

student's college. 
— Not be a conscientious objector, nor possess other disqualifying characterists to a commission, 

estabUshed by law or the Department of Defense. 

Leadership Laboratory 

AFAS 102 — Leadership Laboratory is required for officer candidates in both the general 
military course and the professional officer course. Instruction is conducted within the 
framework of an organized cadet corps with a progression of experiences designed to develop 
each student's leadership potential. Leadership Laboratory involves a study of Air Force 
customs and courtesies, drill and ceremonies, and career opportunities, and the life and work 
of an Air Force junior officer. Students develop leadership potential in a practical, supervised 
laboratory, which typically includes field trips to Air Force installations throughout the United 
States. This laboratory is restricted to individuals enrolled in the precommissioning program 
only. 

Air Force ROTC College Scholarship Program 

This program provides scholarships to selected students through participation in the Air Force

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

Applicants to teacher education curricula must meet the admission requirements of the 
colleges and departments offering the chosen curricula. A student whose cumulative grade- 
point average is less than the stated minimum may apply for admission but will be considered 
individually on a petition basis if enrollment vacancies exist in the college and curriculum to 
which admission is being sought. If admitted, such a student may be placed on provisional 
status by the Council on Teacher Education. 

In compliance with recent state legislation, all students entering teacher education pro- 
grams must demonstrate basic proficiency in reading, mathematics, and language arts. 
Compliance with this mandate is monitored by the Council on Teacher Education. Students 
should consult their advisers or the certification officer for further information. 



COUNCIL ON TEACHER EDUCATION 89 



REQUIREMENTS FOR CONTINUATION IN TEACHER EDUCATION 

To be eligible for continuation in teacher education, candidates must have University of Illinois 
and cumulative grade-point averages of 3.5 (A = 5.0) or higher. In addition, candidates must 
meet grade-point requirements specific to their programs. The Council on Teacher Education 
reviews each student's academic progress every semester. Students who do not meet the 
grade-point average criteria will receive warning letters from the council advising them that 
their entry into student teaching and their receiving recommendations for certification from 
the University are at risk. Students will be directed to their college deans for more information. 

In addition, students are screened just prior to student teaching and just after its completion 
by faculty committees that assess the overall record of their performance in the program. It is 
common knowledge that teaching effectiveness is influenced not only by academic proficiency, 
but also by the personal characteristics and health of the teacher. Recognizing the importance 
of these personal factors, the faculty takes them into account in making judgments of students' 
progress in the program. In addition, counseling and medical services are available for all 
students. A student wishing additional information regarding these services may make an 
appointment by calling the director of student teaching of the Council on Teacher Education 
at (217) 333-4898, or by visiting 32 Education Building. 

Since it is essential that counseling and medical services be offered as soon as the need 
becomes apparent, teacher education advisers and faculty members are asked to participate in 
this effort. Siaff members are invited to recommend for assistance or examination any student 
about whom concern is felt. A student who is recommended for assistance or examination wiU 
receive a written request to make an appointment to discuss matters in which a counselor or 
physician may be of assistance. A student who receives a letter of this nature must respond to 
the request as a requirement of the Council on Teacher Education. Failure to respond will 
jeopardize the continuation of the student in teacher education. During the appointment, the 
student will be informed of the services available on this campus. The use of these services wiU 
usually be optional. In exceptional cases, however, a student may be required to satisfactorily 
complete a mental health or physical examination with one of the campus services. Such 
referrals are mandatory for students who wish to continue in teacher education. 

STUDENT TEACHING 

Students should apply for tentative student teaching assignments on completion of 55 
semester hours of credit. Student teaching application forms may be obtained from the ap- 
propriate student teaching office. (Referral to the appropriate office may be obtained by 
contacting the central Office of Student Teaching, 32 Education Building, 333-4898.) A student 
who is eligible to apply for assignment should contact the appropriate office of student 
teaching early in the fall semester. A student who will not be on campus during the fall 
semester, but who expects to enroll in educational practice (student teaching) during the next 
school year, should secure an application form from his or her office of student teaching before 
leaving campus. The latest date for any currently enrolled, eligible student to apply for a 
student teaching assignment for the following academic year is the end of the second week in 
December. Students who apply after this date cannot be guaranteed a student teaching 
assignment during the next academic year. 

On completion of 75 or more semester hours, a student who has submitted an application 
will receive a student teaching assignment pending verification that the student: (1) has 
completed all professional education course work and 100 hours of early field experience, (2) 
has University of Illinois and cumulative grade-point averages of 3.5 (A = 5.0) or higher, (3) has 
the minimum grade-point average required for his or her program, and (4) has received a 
recommendation for placement in student teaching from the appropriate faculty committee. 

Only those students officially registered in teacher education curricula are eligible for 
student teaching. Students who are on academic or disciplinary probation will not be 
permitted to student teach. The Council on Teacher Education reserves the right to deny 
student teaching placement to students whose performance in course work or in early field 
experiences has been judged to be unsatisfactory by professional standards, including 
scholarship, ethics, and responsibility, as determined by the faculty and staff in consultation 
with cooperating school personnel. Satisfactory performance is not based solely on grades. 



90 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



Students in teacher education should anticipate and plan for student teaching assignments 
off campus. For most students, additional expense will be incurred during the semester in 
which student teaching is scheduled. Students cannot be guaranteed assignments in local 
schools. Attempts will be made to honor such requests; however, this is not always possible 
due to the limited number of available sites. 

A student who wishes to complete student teaching through another university, yet receive 
a University of Illinois degree and recommendation for certification, must secure the prior 
approval of his or her adviser, college, and the Council on Teacher Education via petition. 

TEACHER CERTfFICATION 
General Requirements 

A student who completes all of the course work and other requirements in a program approved 
for purposes of certification by the Illinois State Board of Education is entitled to receive the 
recommendation of the University for the appropriate certificate, providing that the candidate: 
(1) is a U.S. citizen (or has filed a Declaration of Intention to become a citizen), is of good 
character and good health, and is at least nineteen years of age; (2) is recommended for 
certification by his or her program coordinator or department chairperson based on criteria 
approved by the council; (3) has University of Illinois and cumulative grade-point averages of 
3.5 (A = 5.0) or higher; and (4) has the minimum grade-point average required in his or her 
program. 

Please note that, although a student may be denied a recommendation for certification, he 
or she may be granted a degree. A student who beUeves that the recommendation for 
certification has been withheld unjustly may seek redress through the grievance policy 
established by the Council on Teacher Education. A copy of the policy and the allied 
procedures may be obtained from the executive director of the Council on Teacher Education, 
120 Education Building. 

Students who enroll in advanced foreign language, chemistry, or mathematics courses as a 
result of performance on a placement examination are often eligible to receive prerequisite 
credit for teacher certification purposes only. A student who is qualified to receive prerequisite 
credit, and who has declared one of these areas as his or her major or minor, should consult his 
or her teacher education adviser prior to graduation. 

General Education 

The Council on Teacher Education has adopted a common general education core for all 
undergraduate students pursuing certification in secondary (grades six through twelve) and 
special (grades kindergarten through twelve) programs. Students who apply for certification 
after June 30, 1992, will be required to complete the course work specified in the council plan 
as well as to meet the minimum requirements established by the Illinois State Board of 
Education. The council plan incorporates the state requirements. Courses within the teaching 
major or minor may be used to satisfy general education requirements provided that they 
appear on the council list of approved courses, which is available from advisers and college 
offices. Students should consult with their advisers to determine the appropriate course work 
to satisfy the requirements. At the time of publication, all council programs leading to 
secondary and special certification were being revised to incorporate the council plan. 

COUNCIL ON TEACHER EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS FOR GENERAL EDUCATION

of Personnel, 1819 West Pershing Road, Chicago, IL 60609, telephone (312) 890-8262. 

Time Limit on Certification 

Because certification requirements are subject to change due to new mandates from the Illinois 
State Teacher Certification Board and the Illinois General Assembly, the University of Illinois 
is not able to guarantee a recommendation for certification to anyone who applies for 
certification later than one year after graduation from an approved program. A student 
completing an approved program is urged to apply for certification during his or her last term 
on campus. 

Background Investigation gji Applicants for Employment 

Each applicant for employment in a school district in Illinois is required to authorize the 
employing school district to initiate a criminal background check. A school district may 
employ a person only after a background check has been initiated and may not knowingly 
employ a person who has been convicted of a felony or of attempting to commit certain offenses 
enumerated in Ihe School Code of Illinois. Although the University of Illinois plays no role in this 
criminal background check, students planning to teach in Illinois should be aware of this 
legislated requirement.

Situated in one of the world's richest agricultural regions, the College of Agriculture provides 
an ideal setting for professional education and career preparation in the agricultural and food 
sciences. As the land-grant agricultural institution for the state of Illinois, the college traces its 
heritage of public service to the enrollment of the first agriculture student at the Illinois 
Industrial University in 1868. Undergraduate students in agriculture can choose from among 
fourteen curricula and numerous study options in eight college departments, with more than 
350 courses available in a broad range of agricultural and agriculture-related disciplines. 
Individualized programs of study may be designed to meet the student's particular educa- 
tional needs, academic interests, and career goals. 

Extensive farms, field sites, experimental and demonstration plots, greenhouses, laboratories, 
and other educational and research facihties are conveniently located on the Urbana-Champaign 
campus, affording excellent opportunities for agriculture students to gain "hands-on" expe- 
rience in their particular areas of study. The college maintains a large collection of books, 
periodicals, audiovisuals, and other educational resources in its Agriculture Library; and 
microcomputers, data-processing equipment, and a campuswide mainframe computer sys- 
tem also are available to supplement and enrich classroom studies. 

The College of Agriculture is nationally and internationally recognized for its distinguished 
faculty, innovative programs of study, and pioneering achievements in teaching, basic and 
applied research, extension education, and international agriculture. The College of Agriculture 
is now completing a major building program designed to enhance its position of national 
leadership in the agricultural and food sciences. State-of-the-art facilities currently under 
construction will add to its teaching and research capabilities in the plant and animal sciences, 
particularly in the challenging new fields of biotechnology and genetic engineering. Sched- 
uled for completion in early 1991 are a new $30-million Plant and Animal Biotechnology 
Laboratory and a $1 7.5-million Animal Sciences Laboratory remodeling and addition. An 
ultramodern food processing pilot plant and other new laboratory facilities recently completed 
in the college's Agricultural Bioprocess Laboratory, provide an outstanding environment for 
academic programs in food science and food engineering. Agriculture faculty members 
combine extensive professional background in their respective areas of specialization with 
additional experience in business, industry, government, and higher education. 

The School of Human Resources and Family Studies, which is a major component in the 
College of Agriculture, offers career preparation and professional or preprofessional educa- 
tion in several fields of the biological, physical, and social sciences. The school traces its long 
history of education and public service to the establishment of the nation's first university 
home economics curriculum in 1873. Undergraduate students enrolled in the school can 
choose from ten curricula and study options and more than 125 courses available in five 
program areas: foods and nutrition (to include Restaurant Management); family and con- 
sumer economics; human development and family studies; textiles and apparel; and home 
economics education. Excellent laboratory facilities, classrooms, computing and data-processing 



96 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

equipment, and library resources are centrally located in Bevier Hall and the Child Develop- 
ment Laboratory, providing opportunities for both theoretical training and practical experi- 
ence. The school's faculty members have received numerous recognitions and av^^ards for 
outstanding achievements in education and research and are dedicated to high-quality 
undergraduate instruction.

specializing in related fields such as agronomy, food science, forestry, horticulture, and plant 
protection. 

SCHOOL OF HUMAN RESOURCES AND FAMILY STUDIES 

The School of Human Resources and Family Studies is in the College of Agriculture. At the 
time it was established in 1974, the school incorporated the former Department of Home 
Economics, which had been in existence since 1874. Today, the school contains three divisions 
and the home economics education unit. The divisions and the programs offered by each are 
Consumer Sciences (consumer economics, general home economics, textiles and apparel, 
marketing of textiles and apparel); Foods and Nutrition (dietetics, foods and nutrition, foods 
in business, restaurant management); Human Development and Family Studies (human 
development and family studies); and Vocational Home Economics Education Unit (home 
economics education). 

The unique focus of the school is the study, within an interdisciplinary context, of vital issues 
affecting the health and well-being of individuals and families. The mission of the school is to 
generate and provide knowledge so that people may both shape and achieve the greatest 
benefits from their environment under conditions of continuing social, economic, physical, 
biological, and technological change. 

The mission is accomplished by (1 ) identifying critical problems of concern to individuals 
and families at local, state, national, and international levels; (2) generating knowledge 
through basic and applied research to help individuals and families live more healthy, 
productive, and personally satisfying lives; (3) preparing individuals for professional positions 
and leadership in the public and private sectors; and (4) providing educational programs to 
families through the Cooperative Extension Service. The school's mission is reflected in and 
accomplished by the teaching, research, and extension programs of its faculty in the four 
divisions and in the home economics education unit.

Curricula 

CORE CURRICULUM IN AGRICULTURE 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Agriculture 

This is a core curriculum in that it provides for a common core program for the first two years. 
A student who desires an agriculture curriculum but is uncertain as to a specific major is 
encouraged to select this curriculum. All core curriculum students must select majors by the 
start of the junior year. The core curriculum is similar to the first two years of the program for 
students majoring in agricultural economics, agricultural mechanization, agronomy, animal 
sciences, general agriculture, and horticulture. A student interested in a specialized agricul- 
ture curriculum (see pages 106 through 117) is encouraged to enter directly into that program 
as a freshman. 

The core program includes a foundation of general education courses. In addition, the 
student must choose from among several introductory agriculture courses. These are used to 
fulfill a graduation requirement but also provide an excellent opportunity for the student to 
explore the various curricular options within the college in preparation for selecting a specific 
major. 

Upon completion of all requirements of this curriculum, with an approved major and a 
minimum of 126 hours of credit, the student is awarded the degree of Bachelor of Science in 
agriculture.

Major in Agricultural Economics 

This curriculum is designed for students preparing for employment in positions involving 
economic and social decision making in agricultural and related occupations. Concentration 
in areas of career preparation is possible by selection of course alternatives within required 
groups of courses and in elective courses. Examples of concentration areas are: agribusiness 
management, agricultural finance, agricultural marketing and price analysis, farm manage- 
ment, international agricultural development, natural resource economics, agricultural and 
food policy, and rural sociology. These interest areas are not mutually exclusive, and they may 
be combined in many ways to fit the needs and interests of the student. Course selections 
recommended for these concentration areas are given in the Agriculture Student Handbook. 

A large number of courses offered by the College of Commerce and Business Administration 
are recommended for students in specific agricultural economics concentrations. Two special 
programs are available for students with specific business interests: in 1) the agricultural 
economics/accountancy program in which the agricultural economics graduate is eligible to 
sit for the certified public accountant examination at the end of the undergraduate degree; and 
2) the five-year B.S. in agriculture/M.B.A. degree program. Information on both programs is 
available from the Department of Agricultural Economics. 

Upon completion of the curriculum requirements and a minimum of 1 26 hours of credit, the 
student is eligible for the degree of Bachelor of Science in agriculture.

CURRICULUM IN SOIL SCIENCE 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Soil Science 

This curriculum is especially designed for students who plan to engage in professional work 
requiring more soil science, mathematics, chemistry, and physics than is included in the core 
curriculum in agriculture, and for students who plan to do graduate study in soil science. The 
curriculum in soil science also prepares the student for positions dealing with the management 
of natural resources, particularly those involving agricultural, forest, or range soils, with 
attention to the effect of land use on environmental quality.

PROGRAM IN PREPROFESSIONAL VETERINARY MEDICINE 

Most students wishing to complete the preprofessional requiren^ents for veterinary medicine 
in the College of Agriculture follow Option 1 of the agricultural science curriculum, or the 
animal science major-science option. 

Because of the competition for admission, the student should plan a bachelor's degree 
program that will prepare him or her for a career alternative should admission to the 
professional program not be obtained. Recently there have been approximately two qualified 
applicants for each space available in the entering class in veterinary medicine. The mean 
grade-point average of admitted students was slightly above 4.5 (A = 5.0). Specific information 
about veterinary medicine, including admission requirements, can be found on page 333.

CURRICULUM IN KINESIOLOGY 

The faculty of the Department of Kinesiology focuses on the study of human movement in a 
range of physical activities including athletics, communication, dance, exercise, play, sport, 
and work. The departmental programs study humans as physically active organisms, with 
special reference to human performance and the development of motor skills, together with the 
impact that engagement in physical activities has on individuals throughout the life span. The 
undergraduate programs provide the scholarly basis for a variety of careers related to 
kinesiology in the arts, education, health, industry, military, and sport. 

This curriculum is designed to allow students to develop programs of study, in consultation 
with an adviser, that will provide the knowledge and understanding essential for human 
movement and sport careers in either pubHc or private agencies or serve as a foundation for 
graduate study or professional studies. The 128 hours required for graduation include 
prescribed courses for all students as well as requirements determined by the various areas of 
concentration and electives selected by the student. The first two years of this curriculum 
provide a foundation for the areas of concentration but also allow some variations according 
to the interests of individual students. The courses for the third and fourth years are largely 
determined by the area of concentration selected and the correlate area supporting the area of 
concentration. 

A student who desires certification as a teacher or athletic trainer can satisfy the necessary 
requirements by appropriate selection of courses within the areas of concentration and 
correlate areas. Students seeking such certification should ask the undergraduate academic 
adviser about program admission criteria and certification requirements. The Department of 
Kinesiology also offers coaching endorsements to all UIUC students regardless of their degree 
programs. 

Students are advised that the curriculum is currently being reviewed and revised. There- 
fore, it is important that the undergraduate academic adviser be contacted for the most current 
information. 

Further information on careers in kinesiology is available from the undergraduate academic 
adviser. Department of Kinesiology, 155 Freer Hall, 906 South Goodwin Avenue, Urbana, IL

Personalized Area of Concentration 

The personalized area of concentration provides the student with an opportunity to design and 
follow an individualized series of courses stressing greater flexibility (depth and breadth) than 
that available in the bioscience, curriculum and instruction, or social science of sport areas of 
concentration. The personalized area of concentration will allow a student whose academic 
interests span more than one established area of concentration to design a program of study 
not currently available through the other areas of concentration. In accordance with depart- 
mental regulations concerning the development and approval of personalized areas of 
instruction, the student will develop a series of kinesiology courses (at least 18 hours of credit) 
designed to complement a specific educational goal. 

Correlate Areas* 

Each student will complete a correlate area that is a plan of study designed to support the area 
of concentration. These courses must be taken outside the Department of Kinesiology (with 
the exception that one 300-level kinesiology course may be included when pertinent to the 
student's goals). The correlate area may serve as a minor field of study, may satisfy teacher 
education requirements, or may prepare the student for advanced study. 



*The curriculum in kinesiology is being revised. Students should consult the undergraduate academic 
adviser for the most current information. 



CORRELATE AREA #1 

The student will develop, in consultation with the academic adviser, a series of courses (at least 
18 semester hours) designed to support the area of concentration. These courses require

CURRICULUM IN LEISURE STUDIES 

This curriculum prepares students to design, manage, and deliver leisure services to a variety 
of populations through diverse agency settings. A broad general education is emphasized and 
complemented with a core of professional courses. Students may elect from two options: 



APPLIED LIFE STUDIES 137 



— Program management, which prepares students to manage leisure programs in public or 

private agencies, and 
— Therapeutic recreation, for students who want to design and deHver leisure programs to 

individuals with disabilities. 

All options require 126 credit hours for graduation and the completion of the Professional 
Laboratory Experience Program. 

Professional Laboratory Experience Program 

All students in the Department of Leisure Studies must satisfactorily complete the Professional 
Laboratory Experience Program prior to graduation. The program is designed to augment 
formal classroom instruction with active experiential learning under the guidance of an 
agency-based supervisor. The program consists of two courses: LEIST 280 — Orientation to 
Practicum, and LEIST 284 — Leisure Studies Practicum. 

Students must have achieved senior standing to enroll in the Professional Laboratory 
Experience Program, have a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.0, and be in good 
standing with the University. Depending on the option selected by the student, other specific 
course prerequisites may need to be fulfilled before the student can be accepted into the 
program. The college statement on supervised field experience applies to all students 
participating in the Professional Laboratory Experience Program. 

Practicum Related Courses 

Students should register for LEIST 280 — Orientation to Practicum after achieving junior 
standing. As a part of this course, a student must document that he or she has completed a 
minimum of 320 hours of actual fieldwork experience in a leisure service agency in a face-to- 
face service delivery capacity. During this course, students will make final arrangements for 
completing LEIST 284^Leisure Studies Practicum. 

The practicum may be taken only after the student has achieved senior standing (completed 
90 semester hours), satisfactorily completed LEIST 280, and fulfilled other option prerequi- 
sites. The professional field practicum is designed to give the student guided professional 
experience prior to graduation. LEIST 284 can be taken only in agencies that have been 
approved and contracted for this program. The practicum includes a minimum of 640 clock 
hours of experience in a nonpaid, internship-type position. No more than 40 hours per week 
may be applied toward this total. 

The last day for a student to apply for placement into a practicum for an academic semester 
is Friday of the third week of the preceding academic semester. The student will be cleared for 
placement by his or her academic adviser and must then make application to the coordinator 
of the Professional Laboratory Experience Program for a practicum assignment. 

A student who is on academic or disciplinary probation or on dropped status is not eligible 
to complete a practicum during the semester in which the probationary or dropped status is 
in effect and is not permitted to engage in practicum activities. 

A student should anticipate and plan for an off-campus assignment during the semester in 
which he or she will be taking the practicum. Only a limited number of assignments for 
practicums are available in the vicinity of campus. It is not currently possible to arrange local 
assignments for all whose needs would justify such assignments. For most students, addi- 
tional expense will be incurred during the semester in which the practicum is taken. 

General Education Requirements 

The Campus Senate, the faculty General Education Board, and the colleges and departments 
are working to implement enhanced general education requirements. Some changes in 
requirements are expected to take effect in fall 1991 . Thus, new students should confirm their 
general education requirements by consulting college and departmental offices, handbooks, 
or advisers.

Admission Requirements 140 

General Education Requirements 140 

Curricula 141 



The Institute of Aviation is responsible for the promotion and correlation of education and 
research activities related to aviation at the University. Its director has the advice and 
assistance of an executive committee. The institute holds Federal Aviation Administration 
(FAA) Airman Examining (Pilot) Agency Certificate Number 1, which permits it to issue pilot 
certificates and ratings to its graduates on behalf of the FAA. A professional pilot curriculum 
includes training from the private pilot level to the airline-transport pilot level. 

The aircraft maintenance technology curriculum prepares students for the FAA mechanic 
certificate with airframe and powerplant ratings. 

The student who wishes to become a professional pilot may also elect the professional pilot/ 
aircraft maintenance technology curriculum, which permits substitution of flight courses for 
specified maintenance courses in each semester of the aircraft maintenance technology 
curriculum, so the student can work toward pilot certification and maintenance certification 
simultaneously. 

Typically, new freshmen are accepted for admission only in August, but a few students are 
accepted for the spring semester. Transfer to the Institute of Aviation from within the 
University may be accomplished as space permits. 

A graduating institute student may transfer to any degree-granting division of the University 
to complete requirements for a degree in that division. This may require from four to six 
additional semesters. A University student outside the Institute of Aviation may elect flight 
courses with the permission of his or her department and the permission of the Institute of 
Aviation. 

Special fees ranging from $900 to $3,748 are charged for a course involving flight training in 
addition to the estimated costs listed in Table 3 on page 48. These fees are subject to change as 
operating costs change. 

The institute's Aviation Research Laboratory conducts interdisciplinary research in many 
areas related to flight. The institute manages Willard Airport, located six miles southwest of 
the Urbana-Champaign campus. The airport also provides the University and the community 
with excellent air transportation facilities. 

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

Applicants must meet general University requirements as well as those specified by the 
Institute of Aviation. A personal interview and special testing session are normally required 
prior to an admission decision, but arrangements can be made for applicants unable to visit the 
Institute of Aviation. Additional units in physics, mathematics, and the social sciences are 
recommended. 

GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS 

The Campus Senate, the faculty General Education Board, and the colleges and departments 
are working to implement enhanced general education requirements. Some changes in 
requirements are expected to take effect in fall 1991 . Thus, new students should confirm their 
general education requirements by consulting college and departmental offices or advisers.

Curricula 145 



The purpose of the College of Commerce and Business Administration is to provide an 
educational experience that will help students develop their potentialities for leadership and 
service in business, in government, and in teaching and research. The undergraduate curricula 
provide a study of the basic aspects of business and preparation for careers in fields such as 
accounting, business management, banking, insurance, and marketing. Students should, 
however, expect to serve apprenticeships in the fields they enter if they aspire to higher 
positions. 

The curricula, leading to the Bachelor of Science degrees in the various degree programs in 
business and economics, are based on four years of college work. Students are required to elect 
courses in other colleges of the University including courses in mathematics, rhetoric, litera- 
ture, speech, and the social sciences, and to secure as liberal an education as possible to avoid 
the narrowing effects of overspecialization. Through a cooperative arrangement with the 
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, students in that college may major in economics or 
finance. 

The College of Commerce and Business Administration offers graduate and professional 
programs to the student with a bachelor's degree in one of the areas of business and economics, 
or in a nonbusiness area such as liberal arts, science, or engineering. Detailed information on 
graduate programs may be obtained from the Graduate College. 

DEPARTMENTS AND CURRICULA 

Undergraduate instruction in the College of Commerce and Business Administration is 
organized under the Departments of Accountancy, Business Administration, Economics, and 
Finance. Each of these departments offers courses that provide a field of concentration a 
student may elect. These curricula lead to Bachelor of Science degrees in the various fields of 
study in the college and are designed to encourage each student to develop fully his or her 
intellectual capacity. Each curriculum introduces the students to each major subject area in the 
college and provides them with the opportunity to major in the areas of their choice. 

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

Applicants must meet general University requirements as well as those specified by the 
College of Commerce and Business Administration. 

Students transferring from other colleges will not be excused from the entrance requirements 
unless they have demonstrated proficiency in the areas in which they are deficient. 

Mathematics Placement Test 

Students without college credit in algebra are required to take the Mathematics Placement Test 
before registering in the college. The results of the test are used to place students in MATH 112 
or to exempt them from college algebra and allow them to enroll in MATH 125 or the 
equivalent, which is required for graduation. 

The student who enters with college credit in algebra may proceed directly to courses 
beyond college algebra required by the college for graduation. 



144 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS

concentration. 

Each student may select only one major field of concentration. 

Continuing students advance enroll for the next semester in November and April of each 
academic year. New students may advance enroll during the summer for each fall semester. 
Information may be obtained from the Office of Admissions and Records, University of Illinois 
at Urbana-Champaign, 177 Henry Administration Building, Urbana, IL 61801. 
Faculty advisers are available during the registration period each semester to help students 
plan their academic programs. 

Students are responsible for meeting the requirements for graduation. Therefore, students 
should familiarize themselves with the requirements Listed in this catalog and should refer to 
them each time they plan their programs. 

GENERAL EDUCATION SEQUENCE REQUIREMENTS 

Students must complete at least five courses from each of the following areas. 

Area I 

Literature and the arts 1-2 courses 

Historical and philosophical perspectives 1-2 courses 

Behavioral science 1-2 courses 

Social perspectives 1-2 courses 

Non-Western cultures and traditions 1 course 

Minimum of 5 courses 

Area II 

Physical science 1-2 courses 

Biological science 1-2 courses 

Mathematics 0-2 courses 

Science and society 0-1 course 

Minimum of 5 courses 

The following regulations apply: 

— Business administration majors must select PSYCH 100 and 201 for the behavioral science 

requirement in Area II. 
— The credit-no credit option may be used for any general education course except PSYCH 201 

for business administration majors. 
— See the college office (214 David Kinley Hall) for a specific list of courses that meet the general 

education requirements. 



COMMERCE AND BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION 145 



The Campus Senate, the faculty General Education Board, and the colleges and departments 
are working to implement enhanced general education requirements. Some changes in 
requirements are expected to take effect in fall 1991 . Thus, new students should confirm their 
general education requirements by consulting the college's Undergraduate Affairs Office in 
214 David Kinley Hall. 

MATHEMATICS REQUIREMENT 

Any one of the following sequences meets the College of Commerce and Business Admiius- 
tration requirement: MATH 135 (5 semester hours); MATH 120 and 132 (8 semester hours); 
MATH 125 and 134 (7 semester hours). A new student need only select which mathematics 
sequence to enter. Decisions on how far to go in a sequence can be made later as the student 
gains experience and firms up career objectives. 

The most appropriate mathematics sequence for a student depends on his or her background, 
interest, motivation, and objectives. Background can be evaluated in terms of mathematics 
courses already completed and the student's score on the Mathematics Placement Test. 
Interest, motivation, and objectives must be determined by the student. Three basic sequences 
are open to the student. They are: 

— MATH 135. A demanding course requiring a previous analytic geometry course. It should 

be chosen by students whose interests and objectives require strong mathematics. 
— MATH 120 and 132. This sequence is appropriate for students whose background is good 

but who have not had analytic geometry or who feel a somewhat less demanding sequence 

is preferable. 
—MATH 125 and 134. This sequence provides the student with a good background, but since 

the pace is slower it may not sufficiently challenge the very good or previously well prepared 

student. 

Curricula 

Typically, students must register for not fewer than 12 hours or more than 18 hours in each

CURRICULUM IN ACCOUNTANCY 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Accountancy 

In economically advanced societies, accounting plays an increasingly important role. As 
organizations and societies grow in size and complexity, there is a growing need for relevant 
and reliable quantitative information about their progress and status. This information is an 
important aid to business managers, investors, and others in (1 ) planning decisions regarding 
the use of resources (financial, physical, and human); (2) controlling decisions regarding 
actions to accomplish the plans; and (3) evaluating decisions regarding the actual performance. 
The accountant assists in identifying the information appropriate for a particular decision, 
participates in the accumulation of this information, and is responsible for reporting and 
interpreting it. The providing of such information is important to those who manage economic 
activity as well as to those interested in the results. Accountants perform this function in both 
business and nonbusiness organizations. 

Closely allied to accounting are the fields of information systems, auditing, and taxation. 
Each field requires additional education. Accountants who specialize in information systems 
are concerned with the design and control of the systems that provide the information. 
Accountants who specialize in auditing are concerned with verifying the propriety of the 
information and may attest to its reliability in reports accompanying those issued by manage- 
ment of their accountability for the use of resources. Accountants who specialize in taxation 
assist in tax planning, return preparation, and the development of regulations. These 
accountants are employed inside organizations, by governmental units, and by independent 
public accounting firms. 

Study in accountancy is offered in seven areas: financial accounting, managerial account- 
ing, international accounting, not-for-profit accounting, taxation, information systems, and 
auditing. Courses are available in each of these areas at both the undergraduate and graduate 
levels. 

Minimum requirements for the Bachelor of Science degree in accountancy are ACCY 211, 
221, 311, and 331; and three additional accountancy courses. ACCY 199, up to 4 hours, may 
count as one of these additional courses. Additional credit in ACCY 199 will be allowed only 
with the permission of the department head. 

Accountancy courses may not be taken on a credit-no credit basis. A limit of 33 hours of 
accountancy courses may be counted toward the Bachelor of Science degree in accountancy. 

CURRICULUM IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Business Administration 

The Department of Business Administration offers six separate undergraduate concentrations: 
marketing, organizational administration, production, management science, industrial distri- 
bution management, and management information systems. 

Marketing encompasses those business activities directly related to the process of placing 
meaningful assortments of goods and services in the hands of the consumer. The marketing 
student is concerned with the efficient performance of marketing activities and with their 
effective coordination with the other operations of the firm. Organizational administration is 
concerned primarily with the effective utilization of human resources within the business 
organization. Attention is focused on the organization as a social system and the forces that 
affect this system, such as the behavior of individuals and groups, economic conditions, and 
technology. Production and operations management is concerned primarily with the efficient 
utilization of the organization's material resources. Attention is focused on the design and 
improvement of productive capacity and the coordination of the productive process with other 
system activities. Management science is concerned with the use of models in management 
decision making. Attention is given to statistics, various optimization techniques, and other 
forms of mathematical modeling. The industrial distribution management concentration 
stresses the distribution and logistics function in the industrial sector of the economy with 
particular reference to the industrial distributor. Problems in the management of industrial 
distribution businesses, both as suppliers to and customers of manufacturers and other 
businesses, receive special attention. The concentration in management information systems 
permits students to acquire the skills necessary as systems analysts to analyze management's 
needs for information and identify efficient and effective methods to provide management

CURRICULUM IN ECONOMICS 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Economics 

Economics has been described as the study of how people use limited resources to produce 
various commodities and to distribute them to members of society for their consumption. 
Accordingly, the economist is concerned with what is produced, how goods and services are 
distributed, the organization of industries, the labor supply and its use, international trade, the 
production and distribution of national income and wealth, government finance, and the use 
and conservation of land and natural resources. 

The student majoring in economics establishes a core of knowledge by taking courses in 
intermediate theory and statistics. The student may then specialize by selecting course work 
in an area such as taxation and government finance, international economics, economic 
history, labor economics, economic development, urban and regional economics, quantitative 
economics, or government and economic activity. 

An economics major is well prepared for a broad range of professional careers. Economics 
provides excellent training for further study in an M.B.A. or law program, or graduate work 
in an area such as economics, planning and administration, or policy studies. Career 
opportunities include management positions in business, industry, and government; teaching 
and administrative positions in colleges and universities; and research positions in private and 
public institutions. 

Requirements for the degree include ECON 301 , and 1 2 additional hours in economics at the 
200 or 300 level, excluding ECON 294, 295, 299, and 300. Students with strong mathematics 
backgrounds or interest in further work in economics are advised (but not required) to fulfill 
the college mathematics requirement with MATH 120 and 132, or MATH 135, and to take 
additional training in courses such as MATH 242 or 245, and MATH 315. 



150 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



CURRICULUM IN FINANCE 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Finance 

The field of finance is primarily concerned with the acquisition and management of funds by 
business firms, governments, and individuals. A new business, for example, must secure 
sufficient funds to initiate and maintain operations until the cash flow from sales is great 
enough to maintain capital requirements. An established business seeks financial advice when 
considering the purchase of new equipment, the selection of a new plant location, or the 
expansion of present facilities. Business policy decisions that result in changes in the capital 
structure of the business are of special importance to finance. 

A student who majors in finance may specialize in finance, investment, and financial 
institutions and markets;; insurance and risk management; or real estate and urban economics. 

As the study of finance is designed to provide the student with both the theoretical 
background and the analytical tools required to make effective judgments in finance, many 
students select careers in business financial management, commercial and investment bank- 
ing, government finance, insurance, and real estate. 

One of the following concentrations is required for the degree: 

BUSINESS FINANCE, INVESTMENTS, AND FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS AND MARKETS 

Four of: FIN 235, 237, 238, 252, 258, 280, 281 , 354, 357

For students with two years of college and a commitment to a career in communications, the 
College of Communications offers an additional two years of education leading to Bachelor of 
Science degrees in advertising, in journalism, and in media studies. 

Through its educational programs, the college aims at giving students in advertising and 
journalism professional competence in their chosen fields of communications. At the same 
time, it seeks to help them acquire a solid background in the social sciences and humanities. 
Its premise is that students need an understanding of people and the world they live in if they 
are to communicate effectively through print and broadcast media. 

Through its media studies program, the college offers students the opportunity to study, 
analyze, and critique modern communications media, again with a firm foundation in the 
social sciences and humanities. 

The college has modern equipment and facilities for teaching future communications 
workers — newsrooms, a photographic darkroom, a typography laboratory, an advertising 
layout laboratory, an audio laboratory, and a video laboratory. Students also use the facilities 
of the community CATV studio for laboratory instruction. The Communications Library is 
generally recognized as one of the best in the nation. The departments of advertising and 
journalism maintain job placement services for their students. 

The college is also the supervising administrative unit for the University Broadcasting 
Division and the Institute of Communications Research. 

Instruction in journalism at the University was begun in 1902 as part of the course offering 
in rhetoric and was organized as a division of the Department of English in 1916. The School 
of Journalism was established in 1927 as a separate unit. In 1950, it became the School of 
Journalism and Communications with divisions of journalism, advertising, and radio, the last 
of which later added instruction in television. In 1957, the school was elevated to college status. 
Two years later, the college's three divisions were redesignated as departments. The present 
name — College of Communications — was adopted in 1968. 

DEPARTMENTS AND CURRICULA 

Through its two academic departments, the college, which has been accredited by the 
American Council on Education for Journalism and Mass Communication, offers professional 
education in three sequences — advertising, news-editorial, and broadcast journalism. A 
nonprofessional program in media studies is also offered. 

The Department of Advertising supervises work in the advertising curriculum for students 
expecting to enter advertising agencies or the advertising departments of commv lications 
media, industrial organizations, or retail stores. The department aims to educate s dents to 
become analytical, flexible, and creative professionals who are able to deal with cuiient and 
future advertising problems. 

The Department of Journalism seeks to prepare students for varied and long-term careers 
in print and electronic journalism. The primary professional aim of the news-editorial 
sequence is to train students as public affairs reporters by providing them with the skills, 
knowledge, and understanding required for success as journalists. The broadcast journalism 
sequence aims to prepare broadly educated professionals who will eventually assume deci- 
sion-making and leadership roles. 



152 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



The media studies curriculum is supervised by the dean of the college. It is designed to give 
students concentrated formal academic study in the development of the communications 
media and their underlying technologies. 

The Departments of Advertising and Journalism offer graduate programs leading to Master 
of Science degrees in advertising and in journalism. The college offers an interdisciplinary 
program leading to the Doctor of Philosophy in communications under the direction of the 
Institute of Communications Research. 

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

For admission to the College of Communications, a student must complete 60 semester hours 
of acceptable undergraduate college work and present a grade-point average of at least 4.0 (A 
= 5.0) and evidence of interest in a professional career in communications. The competitive 
grade-point average in recent years has been higher. Applicants with less than a 4.0 grade- 
point average may be considered if they demonstrate strong career motivation and aptitude, 
provided that spaces are available. 

Since they must have junior standing to be eligible to enter the College of Communications, 
students at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are advised to register as freshmen 
and sophomores in the prejournalism curriculum of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences 
and to follow a broad general education program. Students at other institutions should follow 
similar programs. 

Although there is no formal preadvertising or prejournalism program, a strongly recom- 
mended program for each college curriculum for the first two years is available in the college 
office. These programs include basic courses in economics, English, history, philosophy, 
sociology, and anthropology, as well as courses satisfying the University's general education 
requirements. Students who do not have a reasonable degree of typing ability must acquire 
this skill before entering the college, as it is required in all curricula. A basic course in computer 
science also would be useful. 

Students at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign should make arrangements at 
the college office to apply for transfer into the college before the advance enrollment period in 
the semester in which they will earn junior standing. Junior standing is necessary for students 
to take most courses offered by the College of Communications. 

Students completing their freshman and sophomore studies at institutions other than the 
University of Illinois are strongly advised to defer courses in advertising, journalism, and 
communications until enrolled in the College of Communications. Students must take all of 
their required communications courses in the College of Communications. They may be 
permitted to transfer up to 9 hours of elective communications courses taken elsewhere, 
provided that they take an equivalent number of additional hours in advanced social studies, 
arts, and sciences beyond the 20 semester hours required for graduation from the college. 

The college does not recommend that students with more than 90 hours enter any of its 
undergraduate programs. The programs are set up on a four-semester basis. In certain cases, 
it is possible to complete the curriculum requirements in three semesters if prerequisites in 
sequential courses can be met. The college does not accept a student who has already received 
a bachelor's degree as a candidate for a second bachelor's degree. Instead, it recommends that 
such a student enter one of its graduate programs. 

HONORS PROGRAMS 
Edmund J. James Scholars 

The College of Communications does not have a college honors program. However, a student 
who transfers into the College of Communications from another college on the Urbana- 
Champaign campus and is a James Scholar in the previous college at the time of transfer will 
continue to be listed as a James Scholar in the College of Communications through the end of 
the first spring semester in the college. If the student has a cumulative grade-point average of 
4.5 (A = 5.0) at that time, he or she will be certified as a James Scholar for the academic year and 
continued as a James Scholar through the next academic year when his or her records will be 
reviewed for certification. Any student whose cumulative average falls below 4.5 will not be 
certified and will be removed from the James Scholars listing. Designation as a James Scholar 
is available only to a student who was previously so designated. 



COMMUNICATIONS 153 



Dean's List 

To be eligible for Dean's List recognition for any semester, students must rank in the top 20 
percent of their respective classes and must successfully complete 14 academic hours, of which 
at least 12 hours must be traditionally graded hours (excluding course work graded pass-fail, 
credit-no credit, satisfactory-unsatisfactory, excused, or deferred) and excluding grades and 
hours in basic physical education courses and religious foundation courses. 

Honors at Graduation 

For graduation with honors, a student must have been named to the Dean's List of the College 
of Communications for at least three semesters, must rank in the upper 20 percent of the 
student's graduation class, and must have earned a minimum grade-point average of 4.5 in all 
courses taken after admission to the College of Communications. For graduation with high 
honors, a student must have been named to the Dean's List of the College of Communications 
for at least three semesters, must rank in the upper 1 percent of the student's graduation class, 
and must have earned a minimum grade-point average of 4.7 in all courses taken after 
admission to the College of Communications. For graduation with highest honors, a student 
must have been named to the Dean's List of the College of Communciations for at least three 
semesters, must rank in the upper 5 percent of the student's graduation class, and must have 
earned a minimum grade-point average of 4.8 in all courses taken after admission to the 
College of Communications. 

Kappa Tau Alpha 

Each year, scholastically high-ranking undergraduate and graduate students in the College of 
Communications are considered for membership in Kappa Tau Alpha, national honorary 
society in journalism and communications. The society was founded to recognize and promote 
scholarship in advertising, journalism, and broadcasting. 

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS 

The college offers programs of study leading to Bachelor of Science degrees in advertising, 
journalism, and in media studies. To meet the degree requirements, all students must satisfy 
general University requirements as to registration, residence, scholarship, and fees. They must 
complete the rhetoric requirements and approved sequences in the humanities, social sciences, 
and natural sciences as listed under University General Education Requirements oh page 154. 
All students must also fulfill the following general requirements of the College of Commu- 
nications: 

— Complete a total of 124 semester hours of course credit. Basic physical education activity 
courses and basic courses in military, naval, or air force science may not be counted toward 
this total although such credits may be counted toward meeting the admission requirement 
of 60 semester hours. No more than a total of 12 hours earned in undergraduate open 
seminars (199 courses), in independent study courses outside the college, and in other 
experimental courses may be counted toward the degrees offered by the college. A student 
in the college may enroll in one such course for a maximum of 4 hours of credit in any 
semester with the consent of the head of the student's major department. The same policy 
is applied to credit for internships in fields other than communications with the additional 
requirement that such courses must also be approved by the dean of the college. While the 
college encourages its students to hold internships in the communications field, particularly 
in the summer between the junior and senior years, it does not allow academic credit toward 
the degree for such experience alone. Credit granted by other institutions for internships is 
not accepted. 
— Complete not less than 30 hours but not more than 36 hours in courses offered by the college 
in advertising, communications, and journalism. Those undergraduate courses cross-listed 
with advertising or journalism courses are considered college course offerings. Under- 
graduate communications courses cross-listed only with departments outside the college 
are not counted as college offerings, except COMM 322. 
— Complete not less than 20 hours in advanced (200- and 300-level) courses at the University 
of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the social studies, arts, and sciences approved by the 
faculty. The human resources and family studies minor may be substituted for the 
requirement of 20 hours in advanced social studies, arts, and sciences by advertising and

MINORS 

A student in the College of Communications is not required to complete a minor. A student 
in advertising or journalism with a special interest in human resources and family studies may 
elect to follow a special minor of at least 20 hours as listed below. The minor may be substituted 
for the college requirement of 20 hours of advanced social studies, arts, and sciences. 

For students not enrolled in the College of Communications, the college offers only one 
approved special minor, a minor in the teaching of journalism for students in teacher 
education. Other students are cautioned against attempting to follow a minor or cognate in 
communications even if approved by their major departments. Enrollment in many courses 
offered by the college is restricted to majors in one of the college's curricula. In all college 
courses, enrollment priority is given to students enrolled in the College of Communications. 

Minor in Human Resources and Family Studies 

For a minor in human resources and family studies (home economics), the student must 
complete a minimum of 20 hours in courses offered by the School of Human Resources and 
Family Studies. The 20 hours completed in this area may be substituted for the 20 hours of 
advanced social studies, arts, and sciences required by the college for graduation. However, 
all students in the news-editorial and broadcast journalism sequences must satisfy the 
departmental requirements of at least 6 hours each in history, political science, philosophy, 
economics, sociology or anthropology, and English or American literature. These courses may 
be taken at the lower- or upper-division level. 

It is recommended that students select a concentration of courses from one of five areas of 
human resources and family studies (family and consumer economics, foods and nutrition, 
human development and family ecology, interior design, or textiles and apparel) and select 
electives in other areas to total 20 hours. 

TEACHER EDUCATION MINOR IN JOURNALISM

The College of Education at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign offers undergraduate 
degree programs in three of the six departments within the college. The departments that offer 
undergraduate degree programs, and the programs offered by each, are described below. 

The Department of Curriculum and Instruction offers degree programs in elementary 
education, early childhood education, and secondary education. Students who satisfactorily 
complete the degree program in elementary education are eligible for the University's 
recommendation for certification in grades kindergarten through nine. The early childhood 
education degree program prepares students for recommendation for early childhood certi- 
fication (birth through grade three). The secondary education program offers degrees in the 
following teaching specialties: English, mathematics, social studies, general science, physical 
sciences, and life sciences. Students who satisfactorily complete a degree program in secondary 
education are eligible for the University's recommendation for certification in grades six 
through twelve. Only students who have earned at least 60 semester hours are considered for 
admission to secondary education curricula in the College of Education. 

The Department of Special Education offers an undergraduate degree program preparatory 
to the teaching of persons with moderate to severe disabilities. Students who satisfactorily 
complete the degree program in special education are eligible for the University's recom- 
mendation for certification in grades kindergarten through twelve with an endorsement in 
trainable mentally handicapped. This program is able to accommodate only a small number 
of juniors and seniors. Applicants to this program must complete special admission proce- 
dures. 

The Department of Vocational and Technical Education offers degree programs in occu- 
pational/practical arts education and business education. Students who satisfactorily com- 
plete the degree program in occupational/practical arts or business education are eligible for 
the University's recommendation for certification in grades six through twelve. Students 
interested in occupational /practical arts education are encouraged to contact the program 
adviser because this curriculum is currently under revision. The department also has a 
program for the training of teachers in nonschool settings. Students who elect this option are 
not eligible for the University's recommendation for certification. 

In addition to these degree programs, a two-year curriculum in the College of Education, 
called education general, is available to students who have completed less than 60 semester 
hours of credit. It is designed to accommodate students who are uncertain about the specific 
degree programs they wish to pursue in the College of Education and students who have not 
completed the 60 hours required to qualify for admission to curricula in the college for which 
junior standing is an admission requirement. 

In addition to offering undergraduate degree programs in education, the College of 
Education, under the auspices of the Council on Teacher Education, cooperates with four other 
colleges on the Urbana-Champaign campus to provide courses in professional education to 
undergraduate students who are preparing for careers in teaching and special educational 
services. 

The College of Education also offers graduate degree programs. Detailed information 
concerning graduate programs in education may be obtained by referring to the College of 
Education Graduate Programs Handbook available in 120 Education Building. 



EDUCATION 159 



ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

The curricula in education general, early childhood education, and elementary education 
admit beginning freshmen. Junior standing, at least 60 semester hours of baccalaureate- 
oriented course work attained at an accredited institution of higher learning, is required for 
admission to the programs in business education, special education, occupational/practical 
arts education, and secondary education. 

A minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.5 (A = 5.0) is required to be considered for 
admission to the College of Education in good standing. Admission is competitive, with some 
departments requiring higher grade-point averages for admission. A student whose cumu- 
lative average is below 3.5 may be considered individually, on a petition basis, if enrollment 
vacancies exist in the curriculum to which admission is being sought. Students admitted with 
less than a 3.5 average will be placed on academic probation as a condition of admission. 

SPECIAL PROGRAMS 

Elementary Education Semester in England 

The elementary and early childhood education program provides an opportunity for juniors 
and seniors to study at Bath College of Higher Education and to work in the British schools. 
Students carry several courses and have the opportunity to complete a five-week teaching 
practice. The one semester of work and study enables students preparing for teaching to 
receive firsthand experience working with children and to work with teaching methods and 
curricula used in England. Costs for the semester of study and transportation expenses are 
borne by the students involved, and normally somewhat exceed the average costs of attending 
a semester at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. 

Inquiries regarding the program should be directed to the Instructional Programs Office, 
120 Education Building, 1310 South Sixth Street, Champaign, IL 61820. 

HONORS PROGRAMS

Eligibihty for graduation with honors is established on the fulfillment of residence and 

scholastic requirements. Residence requirements for graduation with honors are fulfilled 

under any of the following conditions; 

— Meeting University residence requirements for graduation and having earned at least 54 of 
the final 60 semester hours of credit in residence at the Urbana-Champaign campus. Course 
credit that is not included in the grade-point average does not count toward the residence 
requirement. 

— Obtaining waiver of University residence requirements by petition to the Instructional 
Programs Office, 120 Education Building, and having earned at least 54 of the last 60 
semester hours of credit, excluding credit for courses that are not included in computation

The College of Engineering prepares men and women for professional careers in engineering 
and for responsible technical and semitechnical positions in industry, commerce, education, 
and government. The college provides training in the mathematical and physical sciences and 
their appUcation to a broad spectrum of technological and social requirements of society. The 
engineering curricula, though widely varied and specialized, are built on a general foundation 
of scientific theory applicable to many different fields. Work in the classroom and laboratory 
is brought into sharper focus by practical problems that the student solves by methods similar 
to those of practicing engineers. 

Although each student pursues a curriculum chosen to meet individual career goals, all 
students take certain common courses. Basic courses in mathematics, chemistry, physics, 
rhetoric, and computer science are required in the first two years. Although the curricula are 
progressively specialized in the third and fourth years, each student is required to take some 
courses outside his or her chosen field. 

Nontechnical courses are included in each curriculum; they may be required or elective. 
Many nontechnical courses satisfy the broad objectives of the humanities and social sciences 
requirements of the engineering curricula — making the student keenly aware of the urgent 
problems of society and developing a deeper appreciation of human cultural achievements. 
The humanities and social sciences courses are usually drawn from the liberal arts and 
sciences, economics, and approved courses in fine and applied arts. A student who desires a 
broader cultural background should consider a combined engineering-liberal arts and sciences 
program; see page 177. 

The Engineering Library, on the first three floors of Engineering Hall, is a major resource 
center for students in all curricula. It contains the reference books, periodicals, catalogs, and 
technical publications that students need constantly and also provides materials for general 
reading and private research. 

DEPARTMENTS AND CURRICULA 

The College of Engineering includes the Departments of Aeronautical and Astronautical 
Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, 
General Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, Mechanical and Industrial Engineer- 
ing, Nuclear Engineering, Physics, and Theoretical and Applied Mechanics. The undergradu- 
ate curricula described later in this section are administered by these units. The work in 
chemical engineering is administered by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The 
curriculum in agricultural engineering is administered jointly by the College of Agriculture 
and the College of Engineering. 

The listing by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology of the programs of 
the College of Engineering, required by the Engineering Accreditation Commission, is: 
Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering bdC [1950]*; Agricultural Engineering bdC 
[1950]; Ceramic Engineering bdC [1936]; Chemical Engineering bdC [1936]; Computer Engi- 
neering bdC [1978]; Electrical Engineering bdC [1936]; Engineering Mechanics bdC [I960];

Each student entering the College of Engineering declares his or her choice of a curriculum. 
All first-year students follow the common program for freshmen shown below. 

*b = bachelor's degree, basic = level accreditation; d = day; C = co-op feature meeting special 
requirements of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology criteria 

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 
Entering Freshmen 

Students seeking admission to the College of Engineering who are recent high school 
graduates or who have earned fewer than 12 semester hours of credit at other collegiate 
institutions are classified as new freshmen and must meet the entrance requirements to the 
College of Engineering that are specified for new freshmen. Students are admitted to the 
college on a best-qualified basis as determined by ACT composite scores and high school 
percentile ranks supplied on high school transcripts. 

Although new freshmen take a common, or similar, program (shown below), they are asked 
to choose a curriculum in which they wish to study. A freshman usually can change the 
curriculum of study during the freshman year. Some restrictions apply when differential 
admission procedures are used. Because the program of study is essentially the same for all 
freshman students, such changes can be made without loss of credit toward graduation. 

The advanced Mathematics Placement Test is required of all freshman students entering the 
College of Engineering. They are urged to take the examination during the spring testing 
period before enrollment. 

The Chemistry Placement Test is required of all entering freshmen. This examination will 
be used to place a student in a background course for engineers, CHEM 100, or in the normal 
beginning course for engineers, CHEM 101. A student with a superior background in 
chemistry may take the chemistry proficiency test, which, if passed, will place the student in 
CHEM 102 and grant the student 3 hours of proficiency credit for CHEM 101; the additional 
1 hour must be made up as a free elective. A student having advanced placement credit in 
mathematics, chemistry, or physics (see pages 30 and 32) will receive credit toward graduation 
and will be placed in advanced course work consistent with academic preparation.

Transfer Students 

The College of Engineering admits qualified transfer students from both community and four- 
year colleges and has worked closely with these schools in Illinois to implement coordinated 
engineering programs. 

Students may complete the first two years of study in other accredited institutions and 
transfer to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with little or no loss of credit, 
provided that they follow the proper program. A suggested list of courses that should be 
completed in the first two years before transferring is given below. A range of hours is given 
in each of these course work areas, because the major concern is that students have an adequate 
coverage of basic subject matter rather than specific numbers of hours in given areas. Ranges 
are given applicable to both quarter-hour and semester-hour systems.

Social sciences and humanities 9-27 6-18 

Statistics 4 3 

Students should complete as many of the suggested courses as possible and select additional 
courses from those in the Other Courses list above to complete full-time study programs. 
Normally, a student will complete all of the suggested courses and 8 to 10 additional semester 
hours of course work. This additional course work may include social sciences and humanities 
electives but could include work in computer science or advanced mathematics. 

Before selecting social sciences and humanities electives, students should familiarize 
themselves with the elective requirements of the college listed on pages 185 and 1 86. A student 
seeking to transfer to the college must have a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.6 (A 
= 5.0) to apply but competitive standards for admission are usually higher than the 3.6 level. 

Students may transfer to the college for the fall, spring, or summer session provided they 
have met competitive grade-point average cutoffs and have completed 60 or more semester 
hours of work. Transfer students are required to have also completed the basic mathematics 
(through calculus), physics, chemistry, and English (rhetoric and composition) sequences in 
the 60 or more semester hours required for transfer. Transfer students starting their studies in 
the fall semester are allowed to advance enroll during the preceding summer. Students are 
informed of this opportunity after they are admitted. Questions are invited concerning this 
procedure. 

A few sophomore-level technical courses may not be offered by most community colleges. 
However, junior-level transfer students can usually arrange their programs on the Urbana- 
Champaign campus so that all technical requirements can be completed in a four-semester 
period on this campus if they wish to do so. If the number of hours remaining to complete a 
degree requires more than four semesters, the student may enroll for an additional summer 
session or semester. 

Students planning to transfer to the College of Engineering are encouraged to write to the 
Office of the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies, University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign, 207 Engineering Hall, 1308 West Green Street, Urbana, IL 61801, or to the head of 
the department to which they wish to transfer. A student should complete all sequences in 
mathematics, physics, chemistry, and English at one institution to maintain proper continuity. 
In cases where this is not possible, a student may enroll in a summer session to make up 
deficiencies. 

Transfer students are not required to take freshman guidance examinations or any other 
examinations to qualify for admission to the College of Engineering, but all other admission 
regulations apply to them. Transfer students should consult Admission of Transfer Applicants 
on page 18 for general information concerning transfer to the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign, and students from community colleges should note especially the rules regarding 
community colleges on page 19. 

GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS 

The Campus Senate, the faculty General Education Board, and the colleges and departments 
are working to implement enhanced general education requirements. Some changes in 
requirements are expected to take effect in fall 1991 . Thus, new students should confirm their 
general education requirements by consulting college and departmental offices, handbooks, 
or advisers.

SPECIAL PROGRAMS 

Combined Engineering-Liberal Arts and Sciences Program 

A five-year program of study permits a student to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in a field 
of engineering from the College of Engineering and a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science 
degree from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the Urbana-Champaign campus. 

This program affords the student the opportunity to prepare for a career of an interdiscipli- 
nary nature. By selecting an appropriate liberal arts and sciences major in combination with 
the desired engineering curriculum, it is possible for a student to qualify for new careers in 
industry, business, or government. A student who desires a broader background than can be 
provided in the four-year engineering curricula can develop a program that includes a well- 
rounded cultural education in addition to an engineering specialty. Each student must file an 
approved program with the engineering college office and with the liberal arts and sciences 
college office. 

Advisers in both colleges assist in planning a program of study to meet the needs and 
requirements for both degrees. Most combinations of engineering and liberal arts curricula 
may be completed in ten semesters if the student does not have deficiencies in the entrance 
requirements of either college. 

Most engineering curricula can be combined with one of a variety of liberal arts and sciences 
majors including languages, social sciences, humanities, speech communication, and phi- 
losophy. This combined program operates under the following conditions: 

— Students entering the program must meet admission requirements for both colleges. 

— A student who starts in the program and decides to transfer from it is subject to the existing 
graduation requirements of the college of his or her choice. 

— The degrees of Bachelor of Science in engineering and Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science 
in liberal arts and sciences are awarded simultaneously. No student in the combined 
program is permitted to receive a degree from either college before the completion of the 
entire program. 

— Participants must satisfy the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences foreign language gradu- 
ation requirement. 

— Students electing advanced Reserve Officers' Training Corps and Naval ROTC programs 
are required to meet these commitments in addition to the combined program as outlined. 

— Students having 75 or more hours of transfer credit are not advised to enter this program, 
because they cannot ordinarily complete it in five years. 

— Students transferring from other colleges and universities must plan to'complete at least one 
year in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Urbana-Champaign and one year in the 
College of Engineering at Urbana-Champaign to satisfy residency requirements if both 
degrees are to be granted here. Other students should plan to spend a minimum of two years 
in each college. 

— A student is expected to maintain at least a 3.5 (A = 5.0) grade-point average to be accepted 
or to continue in the program. A higher grade-point average may be required in the future. 

During the first year, students are enrolled in the common freshman program for engineers, 
which is taken in the College of Engineering (see page 1 74) . Students are enrolled in the College 
of Liberal Arts and Sciences for the second and third years and in the College of Engineering 
for the fourth and fifth years. A typical combined program follows:

It may be necessary to adjust the above program to allow the student to take more hours in 
the liberal arts and sciences program. 

For further information about this program, students should write to the Office of the 
Associate Dean in either the College of Engineering or the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences 
at the Urbana-Champaign campus. 

Affiliations with Other Liberal Arts Colleges 

Through a program of affihation between the College of Engineering and a number of liberal 
arts colleges, a student may enroll in a five-year program, earn a bachelor's degree from one 
of these colleges, and at the same time earn a bachelor's degree in engineering from the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In general, students spend the first three years at 
the liberal arts college and the final two years at the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign. At the time of transfer, students must meet competitive transfer admission 
requirements. 

Increasing numbers of engineering graduates enter leadership roles in industry and 
government and require a greater understanding of the impact of technology on society. The 
five-year program encourages a student to develop a broad understanding of the social 
sciences and humanities while striving for excellence in technical studies. These affiliations 
have the added benefit of allowing students to take preengineering studies at liberal arts 
schools chosen on the basis of geographical location, prestige, religious principles, family 
circumstances, or other personal reasons. Students transferring from these programs must be 
residents of Illinois to qualify for admission to UIUC.

Cooperative Engineering Education Program 

A five-year program in cooperative engineering education is available to students in all 
curricula in the college. A student in the program alternates periods of attendance at UIUC 
with periods of employment in industry or government. The employment, which is an 
essential element in the educational process, is with the same company each work period and 
is related to the student's field of study. The assignment increases in difficulty and responsi- 
bility with each succeeding period off campus. A list of participating employers may be 
obtained by writing to the Cooperative Engineering Director, University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign, 207 Engineering Hall, 1308 West Green Street, Urbana, IL 61801. 

Students who wish to join the program must first enroll in the College of Engineering at the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. If accepted by a participating employer, the first 
off-campus educational assignment will be scheduled during the summer after the freshman 
year, or the student will attend the summer session and have the first off-campus assignment 
during the fall semester after the freshman year. Typical schedules are illustrated in a brochure 
available from the cooperative engineering office. 

Sophomores and advanced undergraduates are eligible for the program, which will still 
require five years to complete, but they will have fewer off-campus assignments. 

Students enrolled in the cooperative education program are registered in the University and 
are considered to be full-time students for the entire five years required by the program. Entries 
indicating participation in the program are entered on the student's official transcript each 
semester and summer that he or she is enrolled. Upon successful completion of the program, 
the student is awarded a certificate signed by the dean of the college and the off-campus 
coordinator and receives the regular diploma awarded for completing the degree requirements. 

College Option in Bioengineering 

Bioengineering is a broad, interdisciplinary field that brings together engineering, biology, 
and medicine to create new techniques, devices, and understanding of living systems to 
improve the quahty of human life. Its practice ranges from the fundamental study of the 
behavior of biological materials to the design and development of medical instruments. 

Any of the existing engineering curricula can provide a good foundation for work in 
bioengineering. However, the engineering undergraduate needs additional education in the 
biologically oriented sciences to obtain a strong background for bioengineering. With such a 
background, the student should be able to progress rapidly on the graduate level in any branch 
of bioengineering. In industry, the graduate will be competent to handle engineering tasks 
related to biology. 

The courses shown below have been selected specifically for the undergraduate engineering 
student. There are three alternatives that can be selected to meet the individual student's plans, 
designated A, B, and C. The listing of bioengineering courses is not complete but represents 
examples of courses that are currently available. An additional course in organic chemistry or 
biochemistry would be required for entrance to most medical schools. A minimum of 1 6 hours 
is required for the option. To obtain recognition for the bioengineering option, students must 
register in the Office of the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies, 207 Engineering Hall.

College Option in Polymer Science and Engineering 

Polymer science and engineering is a broad interdisciplinary field that brings together various 
aspects of chemistry, physics, and engineering for the understanding, development, and 
application of the materials science of polymers. Many of the existing engineering curricula 
provide a good foundation for work in polymer science and engineering. However, the 
undergraduate student needs additional courses specifically dealing with the science and 
engineering of la;ge molecules. With such a background, the student should be able to 
progress rapidly in industry or on the graduate level. In addition to those students specifically 
desiring a career in polymers, this option also can be valuable to students interested in the 
development, design, and application of materials in general. 

The courses listed below have been selected specifically to give an undergraduate student 
a strong background in polymer science and engineering. A minimum of eight courses is 
required, several of which the student would normally take to satisfy the requirements of the 
basic degree. To obtain recognition for the polymer science and engineering option, students 
must register in the Office of the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies, 207 Engineering 
Hall. The student should also consult a member of the polymer group faculty when 
considering the option and deciding on a program.

College Option in Manufacturing Engineering 

Recent national attention on quality and productivity improvements in the manufacturing 
sector has led to a resurgence of emphasis and activity in manufacturing engineering. The 
demand is increasing for engineers who will be qualified to design and operate the factories 
of the future. This field requires the integration of information technology, materials, and 
machines. It is believed that no single engineering discipline can supply the type of engineer 
needed for system integration. The proposed option in manufacturing engineering provides 
an opportunity to engineering students in all major disciplines to learn a common language of 
manufacturing systems engineering. 

This program is intended for engineering students in all major disciplines who are interested 
in manufacturing engineering. The option in manufacturing engineering requires a total of 18 
semester hours of course work. Only a small number of these courses may be above and 
beyond the requirements of the student's regular curriculum, particularly if the student can 
make use of technical elective or similarly designated hours. 

The course requirements for the option are: 

— A single Level 1 course, MFG E 210 — Introduction to Manufacturing Systems (3 hours), 

required of all students taking the option. 
— Six hours of Level 2* courses that survey two of the four major technical areas of relevance 

to manufacturing. 
— Nine semester credit hours of Level 3** courses. In order that the option have some 

coherence, the three courses must be selected from specified groups of courses related to the 

Level 2 courses. 

Courses within a given discipline that are required for completion of the bachelor's degree 
in that discipline may not be used by students in that discipline to satisfy the Level 3 course 
requirements of the option. 

It is recommended that one of the Level 3 courses be an independent study project course 
dealing with an open-ended manufacturing design problem defined by an outside organiza- 
tion. Students enrolled in the project course will apply engineering principles and techniques 
learned from manufacturing-related courses and topics covered in their major disciplines in 
the formulation, analysis, and solution of manufacturing design problems. 



*Level 2 Courses: 

MFG E 320 — Decision Making and Control Applications in Manufacturing (3 hours) 

MFG E 330 — Interfacing Methods for Manufacturing Systems (3 hours) 

MFG E 340 — Processing and Finishing of Materials (3 hours) 

MFG E 350 — Information Management for Manufacturing Systems (3 hours) 

**Level 3 Courses: 

Each Level 2 course is supported by approximately twenty to thirty Level 3 courses that now exist within the 
course structures of the various engineering departments. These courses provide students with the 
opportunity to specialize in one or more aspects of manufacturing engineering. 



The course of study for a manufacturing option thus provides a student with a flexible 
program that can be tailored to suit the area of interest and the major engineering discipline 
in which the student is enrolled. To foster an interdisciplinary learning environment, a set of 
laboratories is being developed. The main laboratory is the Intelligent Manufacturing Systems 
Laboratory, which consists of a flexible manufacturing cell. 

The director of the program is Professor Shiv G. Kapoor, Department of Mechanical and 
Industrial Engineering (phone 333-3432). Additional information can be obtained from him 
or at 207 Engineering Hall. 



182 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

Thesis 

With the approval of the department concerned, a senior of high standing in any curriculum 
may substitute, for one or more technical courses, an investigation of a special subject and write 
a thesis. 

Curriculum Modification 

A student interested in modifying his or her curriculum may do so by checking with his or her 
department and adviser to determine the petition procedure for making a curriculum 
modification. 

Special Curricula 

Students of high scholastic achievement, with exceptional aptitudes and interests in special 
fields of engineering and their application, may be permitted to vary the course content of the 
standard curricula in order to emphasize some phases not included or not encompassed by the 
usual course substitution and selection of electives. These unwritten curricula, however, must 
include all of the fundamental courses of the standard curricula, the variations being made 
mainly in the so-called applicatory portions of the standard curricula of the college. The 
program of study of each student permitted to take such a special curriculum must be 
approved by a committee of the college, in consultation with the head of the department in 
which the student is registered and with a faculty member of the college. This faculty member 
automatically becomes the student's adviser in charge of registration and other matters 
pertaining to the approved program. 

Advanced ROTC Training Combined with Engineering 

A student in the College of Engineering may elect to participate in the Reserve Officers' 
Training Corps Program and earn a commission in the U.S. Army Reserve, Air Force Reserve, 
or Naval Reserve. A commission is awarded simultaneously with the awarding of the Bachelor 
of Science degree in an engineering field. Participation in these programs is limited to students 
who apply to and are selected by the army, air force, and navy units at the University. Monthly 
stipends are paid to those selected for advanced military training. 

These programs require from one to three summer camps or cruises and the earning of 
specified numbers of credits in advanced military courses. Credits earned appear in all 
academic averages computed by the College of Engineering. Basic military courses (100-level) 
do not count toward graduation. A maximum of 6 hours of 200-level military science courses 
may be used as free electives. A student should plan on taking nine semesters to obtain both 
a bachelor's degree in engineering and a commission in the ROTC program. For further 
information, write directly to the professor of military science, the professor of aerospace 
studies, or the professor of naval science. (See pages 80 through 86.) 

INTERNATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES 
International Minor in Engineering 

Many College of Engineering graduates will be involved in international activities during their 

professional careers. In anticipation of such involvement, the college offers an opportunity for 

students to complete an international minor in any of the regular degree programs offered. 

More than 95 percent of the engineering students have had language training in high school, 

and this program allows them to continue their studies in related areas. The requirements for 

the completion of the international minor are as follows. The student must: 

— complete all degree requirements in the student's selected engineering discipline; 

— complete foreign language studies in a language of a chosen geographical area (language 

level required will vary with the geographical area selected); 
— complete a minimum of 21 hours of cultural or language studies related to the geographical 

area of concentration; 9 hours must be other than language credit and include at least one 

300-level course; 
— complete a period of involvement (a work period, study period, internship, or other form of 

involvement) of at least eight weeks in the geographical area of concentration. 

The student will be expected to select a specific geographical area for concentration that will 
be recognized in the designation of the minor, such as international minor — Latin American 
studies. Course work selected for the minor must be approved by the Office of the Associate 
Dean for Undergraduate Studies, 207 Engineering Hall. A list of suggested courses is available 
from that office. 



ENGINEERING 183 



Through its association with the International Association for the Exchange of Students for 
Technical Experience, the college can assist students in gaining some work opportunities in 
other countries and also in participating in educational exchange programs at institutions in 
other countries that will help the student meet the "period of involvement" requirement. 
Students with foreign language backgrounds before entering the college will normally be able 
to complete the program in four academic years. Those not having this background, or taking 
a year of study in a foreign institution, may take four and one-half to five years. 

Elmendorf World Citizenship Travel Awards 

An alumnus of the College of Engineering, Edward Elmendorf, established this fund to 
encourage engineering students to seek an understanding of the responsibilities of world 
citizenship. Engineering students traveling abroad as part of the educational programs 
sponsored by the College of Engineering are eligible for some financial aid. These funds have 
certain requirements for qualification. Further information about these travel awards may be 
obtained from the College of Engineering. 

On-the-Job Training in Foreign Countries 

The International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience is a 
private, nonprofit organization that enables students of engineering, architecture, and the 
sciences to obtain on-the-job training in foreign countries. Any student, undergraduate or 
graduate, who is enrolled in good standing at the University and who has completed at least 
the sophomore year of study may apply. Generally, the maintenance allowance is adequate 
to cover living expenses while in training but does not cover transportation costs. Further 
information about these opportunities may be obtained from the College of Engineering. 

Exchange Scholarships at Munich and Darmstadt, Germany 

The College of Engineering has exchange scholarships with the Technical University in 
Munich, Germany, and the Technische Hochschule Darmstadt in Darmstadt, Germany. Under 
the terms of the agreement, four University of Illinois students are given tuition scholarships 
at the Technical University in Munich and five are given scholarships at the Technische 
Hochschule Darmstadt. Stipends to cover living expenses for the year are included in the 
Munich program. Students selected by the Technical University in Munich and by the 
Technische Hochschule Darmstadt receive tuition scholarships at the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign. Equivalent cash stipends are awarded to the Munich students. Students 
are responsible for their own transportation expenses. 

To be eligible for study at the Technical University in Munich, a student should be enrolled 
in one of the following curricula: civil engineering, electrical engineering, industrial engineering, 
mechanical engineering, metallurgical engineering, nuclear engineering, engineering physics. 
To be eligible for study at the Technische Hochschule Darmstadt, a student should be enrolled 
in one of the following curricula: civil engineering, chemical engineering, mechanical 
engineering, physics. It is expected that the full year's study abroad will be used toward 
graduation in the student's curriculum at Urbana-Champaign. 

To participate in one of the programs, a student must have completed GER 104 or the 
equivalent (additional courses in German are recommended) and finished his or her sopho- 
more studies in engineering at the Urbana-Champaign campus. In addition, the student must 
be an outstanding scholar who will be an excellent representative of the University of Illinois 
and must be a U.S. citizen. 

The programs are under the general administration of the Engineering College Honors 
Council, although a recipient need not be an honors student if he or she has an outstanding 
undergraduate record. 

French Educational Exchange Program 

College of Engineering students may participate in the French exchange programs at the 
following institutions: Institut National Polytechnique de Lorraine (INPL), Nancy; Ecole 
Nationale des Fonts et Chaussees, Paris; and Universite de Technologie de Compiegne, 
Compiegne. Each student should be a junior and should have credit for FR 104 or the 
equivalent, although additional courses in French are recommended. One- or two-semester 
programs are available, with tuition and certain academic-related expenses provided. 

A new semester-long program began at INPL in January 1991. The program comprises 
French-language study, practical experience in research laboratories and industry, and tech- 
nical course work. 



184 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

Summer Exchange Program in China, the USSR, Argentina, and Brazil 

To introduce College of Engineering students to the cultures and languages of China, the Soviet 
Union, Argentina, and Brazil, programs were developed with different institutions in these 
countries. These opportunities are designed mainly to enable students to learn about the 
people of these countries during an eight-week period, to study the language, and to work in 
a limited way with technology. Two weeks are set aside for travel to interesting places. Credit- 
hour courses in the appropriate language are required before departing. Lodging, meals, and 
medical care are provided. 

Other Study Abroad Exchange Programs 

Many exchange programs with educational institutions throughout the world are available for 
engineering students on this campus. The College of Engineering works closely with the Study 
Abroad Office in developing programs of study in which course credits can be transferred to 
this campus. The College of Engineering is planning programs with institutions in Japan (Kin 
Ki University) and other countries. Further information about these programs may be 
obtained from the College of Engineering. 

HONORS PROGRAMS 
Honors at Graduation 

Honors awarded at graduation to superior students are designated on the diploma as honors, 
high honors, or highest honors. A student receives honors with a cumulative University of 
Illinois grade-point average of at least 4.5, and high honors with at least a 4.8 grade-point 
average at graduation (A = 5.0). Highest honors may be awarded to any student eligible for 
high honors upon recommendation of his or her department. The criteria used by departments 
in selecting individuals for highest honors recognition include outstanding performance in 
course work and in supplementary activities of an academic or professional nature. Ordi- 
narily, such a citation requires completion of an undergraduate thesis or a special project of 
superior quality. 

Tau Beta Pi 

Tau Beta Pi is a national engineering honor society that recognizes students, alumni, and 
engineers for outstanding academic achievements and exemplary character. The Alpha 
chapter at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign was founded in 1897 and is the fifth 
oldest chapter of Tau Beta Pi. In addition to gaining scholastic recognition, members 
participate in a range of activities that serve the chapter, the College of Engineering, and the 
community. The scholastic requirement for membership in Tau Beta Pi is that juniors must be 
in the upper one-eighth of their graduating class and seniors must be in the upper one-fifth of 
their graduating class. 

Edmund J. James Scholars 

The honors program in engineering is part of the University's James Scholar program, which 
was established to recognize and develop the talents of academically outstanding students. 
Engineering students in this program are known as "James Scholars in Engineering." Each is 
assigned to an honors adviser and receives special consideration in the selection of a course 
program to meet specific needs. Students may apply for the program during summer advance 
enrollment or at the beginning of any semester. 

A new freshman is eligible to enter the program if he or she meets two of the following three 
requirements: (1) rank in the top 10 percent of his or her high school graduating class; (2) ACT 
subscore in mathematics of 34 or better; (3) ACT composite score of 31 or better. To be eligible 
for admission and continuation in the James Scholar program in engineering, students other 
than new freshmen must have cumulative grade-point averages of 4.5 or better for juniors and 
seniors and 4.3 or better for sophomores. A transfer student with a superior transfer record 
may be accepted into the program on request after the completion of one normal semester in 
engineering with a grade-point average commensurate with the requirement for the student's 
class. 

Good standing in the James Scholar program at graduation requires participation in special 
honors work for a majority of the semesters in which a student is in residence.

ELECTIVES 

Humanities and Social Sciences Electives 

A total of 18 hours of humanities and social sciences is required (in addition to rhetoric), 
including one sequence in the humanities and one in the social sciences. The two sequences 
cannot be in the same department. A sequence is defined as any combination of at least 6 hours 
of approved courses (see list below*) taught by a single nonengineering department or any of 
the interdisciplinary sequences listed below. Additional courses to complete the 1 8 hours must 
also be drawn from the lists of approved courses. All seminars (including 1 99), honors courses, 
thesis courses, and individual study are excluded except as specifically approved. 

Students may obtain credit from different academic sources, i.e., residential instruction, 
College-Level Examination Program tests, advanced placement tests, and transfer credits. 
Credit in any specific subject may be used toward degree requirements only once. Because of 
the variety of sources available for social sciences and humanities electives, students may 
receive duplicate credit in specific courses, such as American history. Students should be 
aware that such duplication cannot be used toward degree requirements.

TECHNICAL ELECTIVES 

Each engineering curriculum offers some elective opportunities, which may be specified as 
technical or nontechnical. All technical elective courses must be selected in accordance with 
departmental requirements. 

Technical electives generally include 200- and 300-level courses in engineering, mathemat- 
ics, and the natural sciences. 

Free Electives 

These electives are selected at the prerogative of the student except as noted below. 

Credit will not be allowed for courses of a remedial nature, such as mathematics below 
analytic geometry or basic military training. No more than 3 semester hours of physical 
education course work (basic level, i.e., activity courses) may be used as free electives nor may 
they be applied toward degree requirements. No more than 4 hours of religious foundation 
courses or 6 hours of advanced military science courses may be used as free electives. 

Total transfer credit in required basic courses in mathematics (through integral calculus), 
physics, rhetoric, freshman chemistry, computer science, and engineering graphics may be 
used for free electives only if the credit covers topics beyond those in equivalent courses at the 
University of Illinois. Further restrictions on the acceptance of transfer credit for free electives 
may be imposed by the departments with the approval of the associate dean for undergraduate 
studies. 

Credit-No Credit Option 

The credit-no credit grade option is available for students wanting to explore areas of academic 
interest that they might otherwise avoid for fear of poor grades. All students considering this 
option are cautioned that many graduate and professional schools consider applicants whose 
transcripts bear a significant number of nongrade symbols less favorably than those whose 
transcripts contain none or very few. Conditions under which students may take courses on 
a credit-no credit basis are outlined in the booklet Code on Campus Affairs and Handbook of Policies 
and Regulations Applying to All Students, which is distributed to all students.

CURRICULUM IN AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERING 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Engineering 

Agricultural engineering is the application of engineering principles to solutions of problems 
in agriculture. Efficient agricultural production and environmental protection depend on 
sophisticated systems of people, equipment, processes, and natural resources. Agricultural 
engineers are involved in the design of systems, which include mechanization of animal and 
crop production, soil moisture control, crop and food processing, materials handling, and 
structures for storage and shelter. Important design constraints are economics, conservation 
of materials and energy, safety, and environmental quality. Graduates are employed by 
industry and government in research, education, manufacturing, and applications. A five- 
year dual degree in engineering and agriculture is available (see pages 108, 111, and 112). By 
choice of electives, a student may direct his or her program toward specialization in power and 
machinery, soil and water, structures and environment, electric power and processing, or food 
engineering. Individual programs are checked by departmental advisers to ensure that 
Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology requirements are met for any chosen 
specialization.

CURRICULUM IN CERAMIC ENGINEERING 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Ceramic Engineering 

The program in ceramic engineering is administered by and is part of the Department of 
Materials Science and Engineering. An undergraduate degree program in materials science 
and engineering with specializations in polymers, metals, ceramics, and electronic materials 
is currently being developed. 

Ceramic engineering is one of the principal fields dealing with materials — their properties, 
behavior, and applications. Some of the ceramic products originate with naturally occurring 
minerals; others require the synthesis of specific compounds to obtain the desired properties. 
Major industries such as electronics, steel, glass, aerospace, and construction depend heavily 
upon ceramic materials and their unique properties, especially at high temperatures. The 
ceramic engineering curriculum provides a strong background in engineering and applied 
science with emphasis on understanding material properties and processes. By choice of 
electives, a student may direct his or her program toward greater emphasis on electronics, 
bioengineering, glass, or high-temperature materials. 

The curriculum requires 132 hours for graduation.

department (see the following listing). 

Secondary Area of Emphasis: At least 6 semester hours must be selected from some 
technical area other than the student's primary area of emphasis. The secondary emphasis area 
may be another technical specialty in civil engineering, but students are encouraged to broaden 
their basic interests and competences by selecting secondary areas that are outside of civil 
engineering but are related to and supportive of their areas of primary interests. 

It is further required that the courses selected as technical electives, together with those 
chosen as civil engineering core courses, satisfy the following minimum engineering design 
content criteria: 
— The cumulative engineering design content in each student's program must be at least 16 

semester hours, where the number of hours of design content in each civil engineering 

course are specified by the department in listings of course contents. 
— Each student must complete at least one course that requires completion by the student of 

an integrated design project. The courses that meet this criteria are determined by the 

department faculty and are identified in the Civil Engineering Undergraduate Student 

Handbook. 

Explicit guideUnes for the selection of technical electives in each of these two categories, 
together with suggested courses in each of the available technical specialty areas in civil

CURRICULUM IN ENGINEERING MECHANICS 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering Mechanics 

This curriculum, offered by the Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, is intended 
primarily for students pursuing careers in research and development in mechanical, civil, 
aerospace, and related engineering fields. The program also provides excellent preparation for 
graduate study in many different engineering disciplines. 

Because of the diversity of modern research and development problems— especially in such 
newly emerging areas as energy development, materials engineering, space technology, and 
computer-based design — the curriculum is organized around a core that emphasizes a broad 
education covering the basic areas of science and engineering mechanics that are fundamental 
to all branches of engineering. In addition, six secondary field options — engineering science, 
experimental mechanics, computer applications, materials (metals), materials (polymers and 
composites), and biomechanics — allow the student to concentrate on areas of special interest. 
Any student with special educational goals may modify the curriculum by petition with the 
approval of the department and the College of Engineering. 

The curriculum requires 128 hours for graduation.

CURRICULUM IN ENGINEERING PHYSICS* 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering Physics 

This curriculum provides broad, thorough training in fundamental physics and mathematics 
to prepare students for graduate study in physics and related fields and for research and 
development positions in industrial and governmental laboratories. For the first two years, the 
curriculum follows essentially the common engineering program. In the last two years, the 
emphasis is on advanced courses in physics and mathematics, but there is a liberal allowance 
of electives. 

When registering for advanced undergraduate courses in physics, a student continuing in 
or transferring to this curriculum must have a grade-point average of 3.5 (A = 5.0) in all 
University subjects exclusive of military science, physical education, and band, and a combined 
grade-point average of 3.5 in all courses in mathematics and physics taken before such 
registration. A transfer student must have a corresponding record in the institution from 
which he or she has transferred and must maintain such status at the University. 

The illustrative program that follows shows the requirements to be completed in four years. 
However, many students take these courses in a different order. Students with adequate high 
school mathematics prerequisites should begin PHYCS 106 in the first semester. The program 
includes 36 hours of electives, 18 of which must be chosen from the college-approved Ust of 
humanities and social sciences electives (see page 185). The remaining 1 8 hours include 6 hours 
of free electives and 12 hours of technical or nontechnical electives, of which at least 6 hours 
must be nontechnical and at least 4 technical. For this curriculum, generally, technical electives 
are defined as courses within the areas of physics, mathematics, astronomy, chemistry, 
computer science, and engineering. 

The curriculum requires 128 hours for graduation.

CURRICULUM IN METALLURGICAL ENGINEERING 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Metallurgical Engineering 

The program in metallurgical engineering is administered by and is part of the Department of 
Materials Science and Engineering. An undergraduate degree program in materials science 
and engineering with specializations in polymers, metals, ceramics, and electronic materials 
is currently being developed. 

The program in metallurgical engineering emphasizes physical metallurgy but encourages 
the student, by appropriate selection of elective courses, to understand other types of 
materials — polymers, ceramics, and electronic materials. The basic core of physical metallur- 
gical principles is treated in the MATSE 370-373 (MET E 370-373) sequence, and this may be 
taken by students from other curricula who wish to obtain a strong foundation in the principles 
of physical metallurgy. 

The curriculum requires 128 hours for graduation. 
NOTE: CER E 245 and MET E 314 have been replaced by MATSE 301.

CURRICULUM IN NUCLEAR ENGINEERING 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Nuclear Engineering 

The curriculum in nuclear engineering provides students with comprehensive study in basic 
sciences, basic engineering, the social sciences and humanities, and technical areas specific to 
nuclear engineering. It also provides a large, flexible selection of both technical and free 
electives, which enables the student to emphasize breadth or depth of study or both. Thus, the 
curriculum prepares its graduates not only to enter directly into a wide variety of careers in 
nuclear engineering but also to continue formal education at the graduate level. 

Nuclear engineering is a branch of engineering primarily related to the development and 
use of nuclear energy sources, including (1) the continued application of fission reactors as 
central electric power plant thermal sources; (2) the longer term development of fusion reactors 
for electric power generation; and (3) the use of radiation sources in such areas as materials, 
biological systems, medical treatment, radiation instrumentation, and activation analysis. 

The curriculum during the first two years provides a strong foundation in basic sciences 
(physics, mathematics, and chemistry) and an introduction to basic electric circuits and to 
digital computer use. Taking these courses during this time in the program provides the 
student added flexibility in choosing technical elective courses. 

The curriculum requires 127 hours for graduation.

PROFESSIONAL ELECTIVES 

Professional electives as specified in any curriculum are: 

1. Courses offered by the student's department, and 

2. Technical or related courses that will aid in the development of a student's professional goal 
and that are approved by the student's department and college. 

School of Architecture 

Architecture is concerned with shaping the environment for the achievement of human 
purposes. In accomplishing this, the architect has the responsibility to direct his or her 
professional effort in such a way as to contribute to the optimal physical, psychological, and 
social well-being of humanity. The education of the architect must stimulate sensitivity and 
understanding of human needs and must develop the ability to satisfy those needs through 
appropriate architectural and urban design. 

The educational process must also include an understanding of the cultural context of 
architecture both through an awareness of historical perspective and a knowledge of con- 
temporary society. 

At the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the architecture program responds to the 
changing nature of the architect's professional and societal roles. The importance of advanced 
technology and information systems is recognized. The educational approach is broad in 
response to these changes and influences (not dominated by a single philosophy or direction), 
but firmly rooted in traditional disciplines and areas of study central to professional education 



FINE AND APPLIED ARTS 21 5 



in the field. These include architectural design, structural design, history, environmental 
technology, building methods, technology, and construction. These areas of study are reflected 
in the way the architectural curriculum is arranged and in the administrative organization of 
the school. 

DEGREE PROGRAMS IN ARCHITECTURE 

The School of Architecture offers a four-year preprofessional curriculum leading to the 
Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies degree. The BSAS degree provides an undergraduate 
academic education in architecture that can serve as a foundation for advanced professional 
education. The undergraduate curriculum offers an appropriate balance of basic professional 
studies in architectural design, architectural history, construction, environmental technology, 
structures, and studies in the arts and sciences. 

At the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the Master of Architecture is offered as 
the first professional degree. Three graduate programs following distinctly prescribed 
"tracks" lead to the M. Arch, degree. 

Track 1 is a one-year graduate program for those holding a five-year Bachelor of Architec- 
ture professional degree. Track 2 is a two-year graduate program for those holding a four-year 
Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies (or similar preprofessional degree in architecture). 
Track 3 is a variable length program for those holding a bachelor's degree in fields other than 
architecture. 

Track 1 is recommended only for those who already hold a five-year B. Arch, professional 
degree, and those who intend to practice in foreign countries. The programs for track 2 and 
track 3 are accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board. The professional 
degree in architecture at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has been fully 
accredited since the process of accreditation began in the United States in the 1930s. For details 
of the graduate curriculum, please refer to the Graduate Programs catalog of the University of 
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. 

School facilities are limited, and preference will be given to the best-qualified applicants 
until quotas are filled at both the undergraduate and graduate levels of the program. 

Since 1967, the School of Architecture has operated a one-year overseas program in 
Versailles, France, which is open to qualified students on a priority basis. Course offerings 
there parallel those available to students on the Urbana-Champaign campus but stress the 
European context. 

The School of Architecture occupies drafting rooms, lecture rooms, and offices in the 
Architecture Building, Flagg Hall, and Noble Hall. The Ricker Library of Architecture and Art 
is located in the Architecture Building. 

UNDERGRADUATE CURRICULUM IN ARCHITECTURE 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies 

In this curriculum, normal progress is imperative. A student failing to complete any required 
course more than one semester later than the time designated in the curriculum is prohibited 
from progressive registration in architectural courses until the deficiency is corrected. To 
continue at the sophomore level and beyond, a student must have a cumulative grade-point 
average of 3.25 (A = 5.0) for all University course work attempted. For the Bachelor of Science 
in Architectural Studies degree, a total of 127 semester hours are required.

Department of Dance 

The Department of Dance is an autonomous unit in the College of Fine and Applied Arts, and, 
as such, is unique within the state. The resident dance faculty of six full-time and two part-time 
members is augmented by visiting artists-in-residence on a continual basis. There are 
approximately forty undergraduate and twelve graduate students enrolled in the major 
program. The teaching staff also includes graduate teaching assistants who teach classes in 
modern dance, ballet, and jazz for nondance majors. 

The program focus at the graduate and undergraduate levels is on the professional 
preparation of performers, choreographers, and studio teachers. Two degree programs are 
offered, leading to the Bachelor of Fine Arts and Master of Fine Arts degrees. This is primarily 
a contemporary dance department in choreographic and performance focus. Ballet and 
contemporary technique are integral components of training; classes in jazz, tap, and theatre 
dance are also included in the major curriculum. Admission is by audition. 

The Department of Dance is located in the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts and 
utilizes the exceptional performing and production resources of the center. Five department 
concerts per year are produced in the theatres of the Krannert Center, including two concerts 
of student choreography. Numerous opportunities for performance exist with the Illinois 
Dance Theatre, in faculty and student concerts, and in musical and opera productions at the 
Krannert Center. 

CURRICULUM IN DANCE 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance 

The B.F.A. curriculum in dance is an intensive program of study for the dedicated student,

lum also includes requirements in production, improvisation, music theory and literature for 
dance, teaching, history, theory and philosophy, notation, movement theories, and repertory. 
Electives may be taken in ballet, modern, tap, and jazz; advanced improvisation; Labanotation, 
accompaniment; choreographer-composer workshop; and independent study. 

Program requirements include core daily technique classes consisting of three modern and 
two ballet classes per week each semester in residence, plus elective technique classes for a 
minimum of 1 additional credit hour per semester. A minimum of two courses in other dance 
forms (jazz, tap, ballroom, etc.) is required. Technique placement is assigned by the faculty,

a variety of fields of study at the master's and doctoral levels and an advanced certificate in 
music education are offered through the Graduate College. 

Bands, choral ensembles, orchestras, jazz bands, new music ensembles, opera theatre, and 
many other musical organizations are open to music and nonmusic majors and members of the 
university and civic communities by audition. Private lessons and courses in history, theory, 
and music appreciation are open to all qualified students in the University. 

All applicants for admission to the School of Music must apply to the University of Illinois 
and must also audition successfully on their major performance instrument or in voice. On- 
campus auditions are preferred, but taped auditions are acceptable under certain circumstances. 
In addition, applicants for music composition-theory and history of music majors must submit 
original scores or other pertinent writings to substantiate their ability to pursue work in these 
areas. 

For complete information concerning audition schedules, special admission requirements, 
and curricula, prospective students should contact the coordinator of undergraduate admissions.

234 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

Department of Theatre 

The curricular options in the Department of Theatre provide intensive and extensive prepara- 
tion for the rigorous demands of a professional career in the theatre. A strong commitment to 
work in the theatre and a realistic understanding of its intellectual, aesthetic, and physical 
requirements is therefore necessary in students who enter the department's curricula. 

Before acceptance in the undergraduate programs in theatre, applicants must participate in 
a preadmission workshop, which take place in the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts on 
five or more weekends of each year. The workshops afford the faculty an opportunity to 
explain the nature of the study programs, and to audition or interview candidates for 
admission. A student interested in studying acting prepares a four-minute audition, composed 
of two pieces from dramatic works, and, if a student is a singer, a song of no more than sixteen 
bars. Actors should also be prepared to participate in an improvisational session with the 
acting faculty during the course of the audition period. A student interested in design, 
management, directing, or technical theatre, should present a portfolio of previously accom- 
plished work in theatrical production. The student interested in applied theatre performance 
studies is asked to prepare a one-page script complete with title, dialogue, and stage directions, 
and any other written work that gives an idea of interests and accomplishments, along with a 
portfolio of previous theatrical production work. 

Three study curricula, or programs, are offered after the satisfactory completion of the first- 
year program required of all students. The programs in acting and theatre design, technology, 
and management are meant for those students who, in the judgment of the faculty, are ready 
to master those specialties in an intensive undergraduate professional training curriculum. 
The applied theatre performance studies curriculum is meant for students who intend to 
pursue training in directing, children's theatre, playwriting, theatre history, and criticism. 

The Department of Theatre sponsors the Illinois Repertory Theatre, which is one of the 
resident producing organizations of the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts. Eight fully 
mounted productions are presented by the Illinois Repertory Theatre annually during the 
regular academic year. The theatres and workshops of the Krannert Center serve as laboratories 
for theatre students, who have the opportunity to learn and to work alongside an outstanding 
staff of resident theatre professionals and visiting artists, preparing performances in theatre, 
opera, dance, and Kabuki.

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) has four missions: scholarly inquiry and the 
generation of knowledge, preparation of individuals for an array of careers and professions, 
service to the public, and the provision of the intellectual core of the University. The college 
shares the first three missions with professional schools and other colleges on this campus, but 
the last mission is uniquely the responsibility of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. 
Fulfillment of that responsibility yields a diversified college uniquely valuable in contributing 
to the development of broadly educated individuals committed to or characterized by open 
inquiry, critical thinking, effective communication, and responsiveness to the needs of 
individuals and society. 

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is the largest individual college within a university 
setting in the state of Illinois. The college offers seventy undergraduate and ninety-six 
graduate degree-granting programs and enrolls more than 40 percent of the undergraduates 
on the Urbana-Champaign campus. The college serves the entire campus by providing a full 
range of required general education and service courses in basic disciplines. 

Students in the college are expected to understand the content and develop skills in areas 
that reflect the overall purpose of the college: fluency and facility in English; literacy in at least 
one foreign language; broad exposure to a number of different disciplines; and intensive study 
in one discipline (or an interdisciplinary program). The student has a wide choice of courses 
to satisfy these requirements; however, ultimately he or she must plan a diverse and intensive 
program of study, prepare for an occupational/professional and intellectual future, and 
develop that clarity and range of mind that is the goal of educated people. 

DEGREE PROGRAMS AVAILABLE 

The following degree programs are available in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences:

transfer into most specialized curricula and some majors. Contact an adviser or the LAS 
College Office (270 Lincoln Hall) for specific information. 

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

The general admission requirements and procedures of the College of Liberal Arts and 
Sciences are outlined in the admission section (see page 9). These requirements were 
established to enable students admitted here to make the most effective use of the facilities of 
the University. The requirements should ensure that entering students have the capability of 
completing a degree program successfully. 

While the admission patterns or high school subjects required for admission are necessary for 
the student to be able to compete successfully at this University, these requirements are 
minimal. Several other specific recommendations for high school subjects are listed below. 
The college urges prospective freshmen to seek as broad and as rigorous a preparation as 
possible in high school. In particular, students should continue electing academic subjects 
throughout the senior year. 

English: The college strongly recommends that students complete four full years of English 
in high school. 

Mathematics: Although mathematics is not required in all degree programs in the college, 
many of the programs do require some mathematics. A minimum preparation is two years of 
algebra and one year of geometry; a fourth year of college preparatory mathematics is strongly 
encouraged. A solid foundation in mathematics will assist students in taking full advantage 
of educational opportunities at the University. 

Beginning with the fall 1989 freshman class, students may not use credit in algebra 
(sometimes called "college algebra") toward LAS degrees; specifically, students may not use 
credit in MATH 112 or its equivalent toward LAS degrees. Please refer to the LAS Student 
Handbook for details. 

Science: Some knowledge of science is necessary in our technology-oriented society. Students 
should elect at least two years of laboratory science in high school. 

Foreign language: Because successful completion of four years of a single language in 
secondary school will satisfy the college foreign language degree requirement, students 
should include as much foreign language as possible in their secondary school programs. 
Those students who have not had some foreign language during the junior and senior years 
of high school may find it helpful to review the language before taking the placement 
examination after being admitted to the college. 

ADVISING 

Academic advising is a critical resource for students in developing a program of study. 
Especially on a large campus, a continuing, committed association with a faculty member can 
be a valuable and rewarding part of the student's educational experience. Advisers are 
available to aid students in choosing majors, planning for career choices, and selecting courses 
for each semester. All students in degree programs in the college have academic advisers 
available in their major departments. In addition, the assistant and associate deans in the 
college assist students in handling a variety of problems and questions. 

In order to simplify minor changes in course selections, a student who has successfully 
completed at least 30 semester hours of course work and who understands the requirements 
of the college and the University may choose courses without obtaining approval from an 



LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES 243 

academic adviser unless informed otherwise by the college. A student does need to obtain 
approval from an adviser for a number of arrangements, including a formal plan of study for 
the major and the election of the credit-no credit grading option. A student may be requested 
by the college office to obtain approval from an adviser and /or the dean for all course changes 
under certain circumstances. It is very important for advanced students to confer with advisers 
on a regular basis; therefore, the college encourages all students to consult with their academic 
advisers at least once each year. 

One particular resource for a student in the college who has not decided on a plan of study 
is the general curriculum. The general curriculum is an advising center for students who want 
to investigate a variety of subjects before selecting their majors or who have decided on 
programs that require transfer at the sophomore or junior level. The general curriculum is not 
a degree program and does not serve as a formal program of study. Entering freshmen and 
continuing students with less than 45 semester hours of credit may elect to enter the general 
curriculum and may remain in the program until they complete 56 academic semester hours. 
The office provides individual advising; group orientation sessions; and printed materials 
describing majors, curricula, and many career opportunities. Students in the general curricu- 
lum are LAS students and must follow LAS policies and regulations. The general curriculum 
office serves as the college office for students in the program. 

Another special resource in the college is qualified advising for students who are interested 
in law school. An assistant dean in the college office (270 Lincoln Hall) counsels students who 
have declared a prelaw interest. All such students are encouraged to consult the prelaw 
adviser. Students preparing for law school may elect any major; they need not consider 
themselves restricted in the choice of degree programs. To assist students planning prelaw 
programs, a faculty committee in the college has prepared a handbook for students on prelaw 
advising. For further information, contact the prelaw adviser at 270 Lincoln Hall. 

HONORS PROGRAMS 
Dean's List 

Each semester, students are recognized by the college for placement on the Dean's List. Those 
students are eligible who meet the following criteria and are in the top 20 percent of their 
classes. Students must carry at least nine hours of traditionally graded courses to be eligible. 
Course work graded credit-no credit or satisfactory-unsatisfactory is excluded from the nine 
hour minimum, as is course work taken for graduate credit. Students with work graded 
excused or deferred are not considered for the Dean's List until grades have been submitted 
for that work. These students should notify the honors dean when such work has been 
completed if they expect to be placed on the Dean's List. 

James Scholar Program 

The official honors program in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is called the Edmund 
J. James Scholar Program. This program allows students with exceptional abiHty to pursue 
rigorous academic courses of study and provides the opportunity for those students to meet 
with faculty members who are particularly interested in honors programs. There are honors 
advisers available in the respective departments and an honors dean in the college office. 
James Scholars register in some special honors courses, sections, seminars, and colloquia; they 
may also arrange individualized honors credit agreements for specific courses. James Scholars 
have open access to the University Library stacks (ordinarily open only to graduate students 
and the faculty); such access to library stacks is particularly helpful for students involved in 
independent study and/or undergraduate research projects. James Scholars also have their 
program requests processed early to minimize conflicts in scheduling honors courses. 

Any qualified LAS student may become a James Scholar Designate or Nominee. Entering 
freshmen who are in the top 15 percent of the admitted class are invited immediately into the 
program as James Scholar Designates. Each continuing student in the college must maintain 
a cumulative grade-point average of 4.5 and must complete two honors courses during the 
academic year. In order to remain in the program as James Scholar Nominees, students must 
satisfy the requirements for continuing students. Official certification of James Scholar 
standing is made at the end of the academic year (upon completion of these requirements). 

Further information about the James Scholar program is available from the college office, 
270 Lincoln Hall. 



244 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

Rogers Merit Scholar Program 

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences has established the Robert W. Rogers Merit Scholar- 
ship program for highly qualified freshmen. A freshman chosen as a Robert W. Rogers Scholar 
may enroll in any curriculum in the college and is awarded $1,000 for the year; the award may 
be renewed for the sophomore year if the student maintains at least a 4.5 (A = 5.0) grade-point 
average and continues in the college. After an initial review of all admitted freshmen is made, 
those with the highest qualifications are invited to apply. The selection of a Rogers Scholar is 
made by a faculty panel and based on exceptional scholastic achievement, high performance 
on either the ACT or SAT examination, and evidence of leadership in the school or community. 
No more than twelve new awards are made each year. 

Cohn Scholar Program 

The Cohn Scholar Program provides intellectual and financial support for a small group of 
highly qualified freshmen majoring in the humanities. Cohn Scholars participate in a special 
freshman-year program. Typical activities during the year include tutorials, seminars, and 
orientation in the use of University facilities. Each student is given opportunities for meeting 
with both faculty members and students with similar interests; each is also assigned a special 
honors adviser for the program and for academic advising. A student is selected for the 
program by a faculty committee on the basis of an appUcation, high school class rank, and 
performance in a competitive entrance examination (ACT or SAT). Inquiries should be 
addressed to the Office of the Dean, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, 294 Lincoln Hall, 
Urbana, IL 6180L 

Honors at Graduation 

College honors at graduation are awarded on the basis of academic excellence and satisfaction 
of one of the following: (1 ) successful completion of 25 hours of honors courses (or of work on 
honors learning agreements); (2) successful completion of 35 hours of 300-level course work; 
or (3) earning departmental distinction. Provided that one of the requirements above is 
satisfied, the award of college honors is made according to the following ranges: cum laude, if 
the college grade-point average places a student in the top 12 percent of the graduating class 
but not in the top 7 percent; magna cum laude, if the college grade-point average places a student 
in the top 7 percent of the graduating class but not in the top 3 percent; and summa cum laude, 
if the college grade-point average places a student in the top 3 percent of the graduating class. 

Departmental Distinction 

Students who have shown exceptional competence in one or more areas of study may earn 
distinction in their major(s) or curricula. Criteria for awarding distinction are established by 
the departments. Students interested in working for distinction should consult their honors 
adviser early in the junior year. Specific information about requirements is available from the 
departmental and curriculum advisers. Generally, in addition to meeting the scholastic 
requirements and the minimum requirements for a major, a student graduating with depart- 
mental distinction must satisfy at least one of the following requirements: (1) presentation of 
an acceptable thesis; (2) satisfactory performance on a comprehensive examination prepared 
by the major department; or (3) completion of a special course of study of at least four semester 
hours approved by the major department. 

A student who has completed a curriculum in teacher education and has shown superior 
ability in that area may be recommended for distinction in the teacher education program. 
Inf orma tion about requirements may be obtained from the adviser in the area of specialization. 

Phi Beta Kappa 

Invitations for membership into Phi Beta Kappa, the nation's oldest honor society, are sent to 
outstanding students in Liberal Arts and Sciences each April. Eligibility requires rank in the 
top 10 percent of seniors in LAS, as well as a minimum number of graded hours and 
appropriate course distribution. Precise criteria and detailed information may be obtained 
from the chapter secretary. Dr. Susan Gonzo, Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic 
Affairs, 2nd floor Swanlund Building, University of Illinois, 601 East John Street, Champaign,

Awards 

There are a number of prizes and awards available to outstanding students in certain areas of 
the college. A department will generally notify the student of the possibility of such an award; 
however, an interested student may obtain a current list of the awards available from the 
college office, 270 Lincoln Hall. 

COMBINED DEGREE PROGRAMS 
LAS/Engineering 

For a number of years, the Colleges of Liberal Arts and Sciences and Engineering have jointly 
sponsored a five-year program leading to a B.A. or B.S. degree in liberal arts and sciences and 
a B.S. degree in a field of engineering. The program allows motivated students to obtain 
professional engineering education combined with a broad liberal arts background. The 
program, not intended to eliminate any graduation requirements of either college, requires 
students to complete all degree requirements of both colleges. 

Freshmen normally apply for entrance to the program through the College of Engineering, 
but students who have appHed to and been accepted by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences 
may be able to enter the program. All students must meet the entrance requirements of both 
colleges. In addition, they may be required to meet the intercollegiate transfer requirements 
of both colleges. For further information about the program see page 177 and consult your 
college office. 

LAS/Commerce 

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences together with the College of Commerce and Business 
Administration offers two joint-degree programs that lead to the degrees of B.A. or B.S. in 
liberal arts and sciences and M.A.S. or M.B.A. Each program takes five years to complete. 
These programs allow students to complete master's programs in accounting or business 
administration while they provide students with the broad opportunities unique to a liberal 
arts program. For further description, see page 323. Students interested in these opportunities 
should contact the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, 270 Lincoln Hall for additional 
information and advising. 

STUDY ABROAD 

Many students in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences find that they can benefit from a 
semester or a year of study in a foreign country. To facilitate such study abroad, the College 
of Liberal Arts and Sciences sponsors a number of special study abroad programs and provides 
for student participation in these and other programs. There are three general categories of 
programs: (f ) a program enabling students to study at approved foreign institutions of their 
choice; (2) special study abroad programs sponsored by units of the College of Liberal Arts and 
Sciences; and (3) participation in cooperative programs sponsored by other universities or 
groups of universities. 

LAS Study Abroad 

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences supports the Study Abroad Office to aid students who 
plan to study at approved foreign institutions or in programs of their choice other than those 
offered by departments within the college itself. The option is open not only to students in LAS, 
but also to students in other colleges within the University. A student's program for study 
abroad must have prior approval from the major department, the student's college, and the 
Study Abroad Office. Final determination of appropriate credit is made upon the student's 
completion of the work after returning to campus. 

Students register in LAS 299 for hours per semester and may earn a maximum of 30 
semester hours per academic year or 36 semester hours for the academic year, including 
summer study.

OPPORTUNITIES FOR MULTIDISCiPUNARY STUDY 

A number of opportunities for multidisciplinary study area are available in the College of 
Liberal Arts and Sciences, and a number of units in the college are devoted to the multidisciplinary 
study of various areas, cultures, and subjects. Some of these units sponsor interdisciplinary 
majors; others do not have formal majors, but have arrangements for faculty members to assist 
students in planning programs appropriate to individual needs. Also, some units sponsor 
interdisciplinary minors that may be completed in conjunction with a sciences and letters 
curriculum degree program (i.e., a degree program with a traditional major in LAS). For 
details, see below. 

Multidisciplinary Majors 

There are three area studies programs with majors in the college: East Asian and Pacific 
Studies, Latin American and Caribbean Studies, and Russian and East European Studies. 
Descriptions of these majors may be found in the section on degree requirements for majors. 
(See the section beginning on page 249.)

''The Campus Senate, the faculty General Education Board, and the colleges and departments are working 
to implement enhanced general education requirements. Some changes in requirements are expected to 
take effect in fall 1991. Thus, new students should confirm their general education requirements by 
consulting college and departmental offices, handbooks, or advisers. 



250 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



English Composition Requirement 

The ability to v/rite effectively is a cornerstone of a liberal education. All students in the 
sciences and letters curriculum must satisfy the campus rhetoric requirement. See page 76 for 
a statement of the requirement. Students are strongly encouraged to include additional 
writing courses in their programs whenever possible.

to implement enhanced general education requirements. Some changes in requirements are expected to 
take effect in fall 1991. Thus, new students should confirm their general education requirements by 
consulting college and departmental offices, handbooks, or advisers. 



Foreign Language Requirement 

Each student in the sciences and letters curriculum is expected to learn a foreign language in 
the undergraduate program. A minimum expectation is that the student obtain a knowledge 
equivalent to the completion of the fourth semester of college study in a language. Some 
programs may require additional study or the study of a specific language. A student planning 
on graduate study may wish to consult the department of intended graduate study about 
language requirements for the graduate program. This may dictate the student's choice of 
language study during undergraduate work. 

The foreign language requirement may be met in any of the following ways: 

1 . Satisfactory completion of four years of the same foreign language in high school; 

2. Satisfactory completion of the fourth-semester level of a language in college; 
S.Satisfactory completion of the third-semester level in each of two languages by any combi- 
nation of high school and college work; 

4. Satisfactory performance at the fourth-semester level in a language proficiency examination 
approved by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the appropriate department. 

General Education^ 

General education courses are the foundation vehicle for the college's unique mandate: the 
provision of the intellectual core of undergraduate study at the University. Through these 
required courses, each student in the college is expected to obtain an understanding of the ways 
in which knowledge is acquired and used in the diverse disciplines represented by the 
University's curricula. The graduate must have some acquaintance with literature and the arts, 
history, philosophical inquiry, and the insights and techniques of the social sciences, as well 
as the aims and methods of the natural sciences. 

Students are therefore required to complete broadly distributed course work in two general 
areas- — one in the arts and social sciences, the other in mathematics and the sciences. Students 
must take at least ten courses: five in Area I (arts and social sciences) and five in Area II 
(mathematics and science). The specific list of the distribution of courses is given in Compo- 
nents of the Curriculum, page 249. The LAS Student Handbook provides a list of courses ap- 
proved for each of the general education categories. 

The general education categories and their purposes are briefly described below, together 
with an abbreviated listing of some of the disciplines from which courses for these categories are 
drawn. 

Literature and the Arts. To consider the literary, visual, and performing arts as aesthetic or 
creative achievements. (English, language departments, art history, music) 

Historical and Philosophical Perspectives. To understand both the events and ideas of the 
past, thus acquiring a fresh perspective on the present; to understand the major philosophical 
issues that confront human beings. (Classical civilization, history, philosophy, religious 
studies) 

Social Perspectives. To acquire an understanding of social contexts and institutions. (Anthro- 
pology, economics, geography, political science, sociology) 

Non-Western Cultures and Traditions. To attain a broad awareness of the values and tradi- 
tions of people from different cultures. (African studies, anthropology, Asian studies, history, 
religious studies) 



LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES 251 

Biological Sciences. To consider the structure and function of life forms, their ecological or 
their evolutionary relationships, and their importance to the human community. (Anthropol- 
ogy; biology; ecology, ethology, and evolution; entomology; microbiology; physiology; psy- 
chology) 

Physical Sciences. To comprehend the major aspects of the physical world and to become 
conversant with the nature of scientific inquiry. (Astronomy, chemistry, geography, geology, 
physics) 

Behavioral Sciences. To study individual human behavior. (Psychology) 

Mathematics. To study a substantial mathematical endeavor or to explore the scientific and 
humanistic import of mathematics. (Mathematics, computer science, statistics) 

Science and Society. To explore the evolution and apphcation of particular sciences and/or 
technologies together with their social and cultural implications. (Astronomy, computer 
science, geography, history, psychology, sociology) 

Students are urged to consult with their advisers regarding the choice of courses to 
complement their programs and to meet educational objectives. Some of the approved courses 
have prerequisites. 

NOTES: 

— The campus Senate, the Faculty General Education Board, and the undergraduate colleges 
are working to revise and enhance the general education requirements. Some changes in 
requirements are expected to take effect in fall 1991; other changes are expected to be 
implemented incrementally in following years. Thus, new students in each entering class 
should confirm their general education requirements by consulting the LAS Student 
Handbook, their departmental advising office, and/or the Student Academic Affairs Office 
of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. 

— The credit-no credit option may not be used for courses that satisfy general education 
requirements. 

— There are no limits on the number of courses from a single department that may be used to 
satisfy the requirements. 

— Courses taken to satisfy major requirements may also be used to satisfy general education 
requirements provided they are on current general education lists. 

— A student who successfully completes a College-Level Examination Program general 
examination in an area of study, using University of Illinois standards, will receive a waiver 
of the requirement in that area and, in certain cases, course credit. See the LAS Student Handbook 
for details. 
Students who receive college credit for Advanced Placement work will find that some 

course credit generally will apply toward the relevant requirement. For example. Advanced 

Placement scores of 4 or 5 in English Literature will provide 3 semester hours of credit in 

English 103 and, therefore, count toward the requirement for literature and the arts. See page 

30 for current credit policies for Advanced Placement examinations. 

Similarly, proficiency credit received through a department's own testing program may be 

used to satisfy general education requirements. 

Students planning to study in specialized curricula or in teacher education curricula will be 

subject to the requirements as indicated elsewhere in this catalog rather than the above 

requirements. 



''The Campus Senate, the faculty General Education Board, and the colleges and departments are working 
to implement enhanced general education requirements. Some changes in requirements are expected to 
take effect in fall 1991. Thus, new students should confirm their general education requirements by 
consulting college and departmental offices, handbooks, or advisers. 



Major 

Each student in the sciences and letters curriculum is expected to study a single discipline in 
some depth as well as obtain mastery of any related course work necessary for careful study 
of the chosen discipline. This portion of the student's program of study is called the major. Prior 
to August 1988, the study-in-depth portion was called ihe field of concentration; as of August 
1988, the term field of concentration was replaced by the more traditional term major, although 
the requirements for each major remained exactly those of the corresponding field of concen- 
tration. 



252 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



The major consists of approximately 40 to 60 hours of course work designated by the 
department and approved by the faculty of the college. Most majors will have a portion of the 
required course work in subjects relating to the major and supporting the major, but not chosen 
from courses in the major department; this is called the supporting course work. The major will 
have at least one-half of the course work selected or designated from courses numbered 200 
and above. 

There are thirty-nine majors from which students may choose, and a number of them have 
multiple options within the major. A complete list of the majors available can be found on 
pages 240 and 241 . The major should be chosen no later than the junior year. Since most majors 
require that the student choose courses in consultation with a faculty adviser, students should 
plan to discuss the major with a faculty adviser early in the junior year. In most cases, a student 
will be expected to submit to the college a written list of courses for the major (the major plan) 
during the junior year. 

Since the major is a required portion of the sciences and letters curriculum, students must 
take all course work for the minimum requirements of the major for a traditional letter grade 
(or on the satisfactory-unsatisfactory basis). The credit-no credit grading option may not be 
used for courses in the major. 

The satisfactory completion of a major requires not only the completion of a stated amount 
of course work, but also that the student earn at least a 3.0 average in courses for the major. In 
order to graduate, a student should earn at least a 3.0 grade-point average in all courses that 
are included in the major average and taken on this campus and at least a 3.0 average in all 
courses that are included in the major average and taken here and elsewhere. Consult the 
department or the college office for a list of courses included in the major average for a specific 
concentration. 

Each student is expected to complete a minimum amount of advanced course work for the 
major on this campus. Specifically, a student normally completes on this campus at least 12 
hours of advanced core course work (course work within the department) in the major. 

Advanced Hours Requirement 

A liberal arts program requires study in a number of areas (general education requirements) 
and study in some depth. Thus, each student is expected to complete a minimum portion of 
the undergraduate program in courses that presume some prior knowledge of the discipline. 
A course is considered advanced if it presumes such prior knowledge as indicated by the 
faculty (specially designated 200- level courses), by the course number (most courses numbered 
300 or above), by the prerequisites necessary for enrollment in the course, or by the quality and 
depth of work expected of students in the course. All students in the sciences and letters 
curriculum are expected to complete at least 21 hours of courses designated as advanced by the 
college in order to graduate. All such courses must be taken at baccalaureate-granting 
institutions. Courses designated as advanced are those courses numbered 300 or above and 
those 200-level courses that are specially designated as advanced. A list of such advanced 200- 
level courses may be found in the LAS Student Handbook. 

Minors and Interdisciplinary Minors 

The College offers a formal system of minors which may be completed in conjunction with a 
major in the Sciences and Letters Curriculum. A minor is a coherent program of study 
(generally 18-24 hours) requiring some depth in the subject, but is not as extensive as the major. 
Requirements for minors (see page 293) are determined by the department and approved by 
the College. Minors are optional. Students do not have to complete a minor as part of their 
degree requirements, though some majors may allow use of a minor in place of other 
supporting course work. 

The minor may be completed and noted only at the time of completion of a bachelor's degree 
in LAS (in the Sciences and Letters Curriculum). While the minor does not replace other degree 
requirements, courses may be used both for the minor and to meet other degree requirements 
as appropriate. The student should notify LAS of intention to complete a minor at the 
beginning of the student's senior year so that its completion may be verified. A list of 
requirements for approved minors is available in the LAS Student Office, 270 Lincoln Hall. 

There are several interdisciplinary areas in which there currently are no formal degree 
programs, but in which scholarly needs or employment demands require recognition. In these 
areas, the college offers an interdisciplinary minor. The interdisciplinary minor differs from 
the standard minor in that it may require attainment of a predetermined and approved grade- 



LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES 253 



point average in the courses for the program and students are required to consult with an 
adviser regarding selection of course work. The student should notify the unit of the 
interdisciplinary minor at the beginning of the student's final semester before graduation so 
that the completion of the interdisciplinary minor may be verified; the college generally cannot 
monitor completion of the interdisciplinary minor. Currently, the interdisciplinary minors are 
those in African Studies, Afro-American Studies, Latin American Studies, and Women's 
Studies. 

Electives 

Most liberal arts majors allow time in the student's program for a number of courses chosen 

freely from among the University's offerings. These courses, called electives, may be used to 

prepare for professional study, to prepare for business and career opportunities, or simply to 

explore additional interests. In addition to all courses used to fulfill the minimum graduation 

requirements of the college (rhetoric, foreign language, general education, and major), a 

student following a major may use as electives: 

— Courses offered by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences; 

— Courses offered by departments and schools in other colleges of the University that sponsor 

majors in LAS [art (excluding applied art courses), computer science, economics, finance, 

music (excluding applied music courses), or physics]; 
— A maximum of 24 hours (to be counted toward graduation) of courses not included in either 

of the above, that is, courses offered by departments and schools in other colleges on 

campus. Examples of courses in this category are accounting, business administration, 

engineering, applied art courses, and applied music courses. 

Undergraduate students of high academic standing (i.e., a 4.0 grade-point average or higher 
in courses taken beyond the sophomore level) within 10 semester hours of earning their 
bachelor's degrees may elect courses in the Graduate College for graduate credit with the 
consent of the dean of that college. Also, students with senior standing may petition the 
Graduate College for permission to elect graduate courses for undergraduate credit. Interested 
students should first consult the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. 

Residence 

Students must satisfy the University residence requirement for graduation (page 75). They 
must complete on this campus, uninterrupted by work elsewhere, either the first three years 
(at least 90 hours of course work) or the last year (at least 30 hours). The hours must be 
applicable toward the degree sought. In addition, all students must earn 60 hours of course 
work at four-year (baccalaureate-granting) institutions after any work at community colleges. 
Students in the sciences and letters curriculum are expected to earn at least 12 hours of credit 
in advanced courses in the core for the major on this campus (page 252). 

Total Hours 

A total of 120 semester hours acceptable toward the degree is required for graduation in the 
sciences and letters curriculum. 

Students should be aware that there are several specific limitations on the amount of 
particular kinds of credit that may be used in the 120 hours: no more than 24 elective hours 
outside the college, as discussed above; no more than 4 hours of credit in basic physical 
education courses; no more than 6 hours of credit in military science courses (see the LAS Student 
Handbook for details); no more than 4 hours of credit in religious foundation courses; no more 
than 12 hours of credit in undergraduate open seminar (199) courses; and no more than 18 
hours of credit in independent study and 1 99 courses. See the LAS Student Handbook for details 
about the credit limitations in each of these areas. 

Students matriculating at some college or university in June 1989 or later may not use credit 
in algebra (MATH 112 or equivalent) toward a baccalaureate degree in the College of Liberal 
Arts and Sciences. In addition, students in the programs requiring trigonometry for admission 
(e.g., the specialized curricula in chemical engineering, chemistry, and physics) may not use 
credit in trigonometry (MATH 114 or equivalent) toward an LAS degree. See the LAS Student 
Handbook for further details. 



254 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

SCIENCES AND LEHERS MAJORS 
Actuarial Science 

This major is sponsored by the Department of Mathematics. See page 280. 

Anthropology 

Anthropology courses: 36 hours (including ANTH 102, 103, 220, 230, 240, and 270) 
Supporting course work: 18 hours (chosen in consultation with an adviser) 

Anthropology, which views human behavior and society (both past and present) in a cross- 
cultural perspective, combines scientific and humanistic interests in a modern social sciences 
framework. It consists of biological anthropology (human genetics and evolution, and the 
zoological order of primates), archaeology (the prehistory of cultures, and the origins and 
growth of human technology), sociocultural anthropology (the comparative study of social 
structures and institutions from simple hunter-gatherer settings to complex urban settings), 
and anthropological linguistics (the comparative study of languages and communications). 
Although the student should strive for a topical and geographical balance, an undergraduate 
may specialize in one of these four branches and also may study some world cultural area 
intensively through an area studies program. Anthropology is an appropriate major for those 
seeking a general liberal education; for those preparing for professional study and careers in 
law, medicine, or commerce; and for those planning further graduate study in anthropology. 
Professional anthropologists work as research scientists and teachers in museums, universi- 
ties, and archaeological surveys or as staff members in government agencies, social service 
programs, and business firms in which international understanding of human and social 
concerns is important. 

REQUIREMENTS 

The 36 hours in anthropology must include ANTH 102, 103 (or 104 for honors students), 220, 
230, 240, and 270. The departmental adviser may waive a 200-level course requirement, but the 
student will still be required to take 36 hours of anthropology course work. Four courses 
totalling at least 1 2 hours in anthropology must be at the advanced level (generally 291 and 300- 
level courses); only one of these four courses may be ANTH 398. All students must discuss their 
selection of anthropology courses and supporting course work with a departmental adviser. 
Students must take 1 8 hours of supporting course work in another department. At least 9 hours 
of the supporting course work must be at the advanced level. Students may substitute an 
official minor offered by another department for the supporting course work. 

Departmental Distinction. To be eligible for distinction, a student must maintain a 4.6 average 
in 32 hours of anthropology courses, including ANTH 291 and /or 293, and submit a thesis for 
judgment by the departmental honors board. 



''This statement reflects a revision that was pending final approval at the time of publication. 



Art History 

Art history courses: 32 hours (including ARTHI 1 1 1 and 112) 

Supporting course work: 15 hours (chosen in consultation with an adviser) 

Like the other humanities, the history of art as an undergraduate major offers an enrichment 
of and a preparation for life, rather than training for a specific occupation. The student who 
goes on to graduate work in the field can look forward to becoming a teacher of the subject, to 
membership on the staff of a museum, or to employment in a commercial art gallery. 

Working in consultation with the undergraduate adviser for art history, each student will 
design a program of study that satisfies the requirements listed below. Students who wish to 
take a considerable number of studio courses as part of the major should enroll in the history 
of art option offered by the School of Art and Design within the College of Fine and Applied 
Arts. 



LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES 255 

REQUIREMENTS 

1. Courses in the history of art and architecture. ARTHI 111 and 112 and at least 24 hours of 
art history in 200- and 300-level courses, including one 3-hour course in each of the following 
areas: (a) ancient and medieval art; (b) Renaissance, baroque, and rococo art; (c) late 
eighteenth-, nineteenth-, and twentieth-century art; and (d) African, Asian, oceanic, and 
pre-Columbian art. 

Courses in the history of architecture, excluding ARCH 210, may be used with the approval 
of the adviser for as much as 12 hours of credit in meeting the 24-hour requirement. 

2. Foreign language. French or German is strongly recommended for fulfilling the foreign 
language requirement; however, another language may be used with the approval of the 
adviser as the needs of the student's program dictate. A student who has decided to make 
the history of Oriental art his or her major study area in undergraduate and graduate work 
would be well advised to satisfy the foreign language requirement with Chinese or Japanese 
rather than with a European language. 

3. Supporting course work. At least 15 hours of courses at the 200 and 300 levels in supporting 
areas chosen with the approval of the adviser must be completed. Although the program 
in art history allows considerable latitude in the selection of such courses, they should be 
chosen with the goal of enhancing the student's understanding of the cultural context within 
which works of art and architecture have been created. Recent practice suggests that 
supporting courses will most commonly be drawn from such fields as anthropology, 
classics, history, literature, music and dance history, philosophy, psychology, and religious 
studies. 

Departmental Distinction. To be eligible for distinction, a student must earn a high grade- 
point average and complete at least 4 semester hours of independent research. See the 
undergraduate adviser for details. 

Asian Studies 

Requirements: Generally 53 hours 

Language courses: 26 to 30 hours of a single Asian language 
Literature, civilization, or society courses: 15 hours 
Supporting course work: 12 hours 

This major, sponsored by the Center for East Asian and Pacific Studies in cooperation with the 
Program in South and West Asian Studies, permits a study in language and literature, 
language and civilization, or language and society focusing on a single Asian country or 
region. The major may be useful for the student seeking a broad liberal arts education or as 
preparation for study in a graduate or professional program. 

REQUIREMENTS 

All students must complete 6 courses in a single Asian language in combination with one of 
the following options, which must include 12 hours of nonlanguage courses at the 300 level: 

OPTIONS

256 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



Departmental Distinction. To be eligible for distinction, a student must maintain a 4.25 
cumulative grade-point average and a 4.5 grade-point average in Asian studies, complete two 
300-level (or 400-level) nonlanguage courses in Asian studies beyond minimal major require- 
ments, and receive the endorsement of the faculty adviser and the program's honors commit- 
tee. A candidate is advised to consult the faculty adviser about all details at the beginning of 
the senior year. 

Astronomy 

Astronomy courses: 18 hours (300-level astronomy and physics courses) 

Supporting course work/prerequisites: 3 or 8 hours of introductory astronomy, 1 2 hours of general physics, 

and 11 (or 1 0) hours of calculus 

The major in astronomy demands both a broad and an in-depth exploration into astronomy 
and allied disciplines, rather than focusing on one relatively limited area of the subject. Specific 
programs of study for individual students must be designed and periodically updated through 
mutual discussions between the students and their academic advisers. Students should note 
sequential prerequisites for courses. 

REQUIREMENTS 

The basic major consists of a minimum of 44 hours distributed as follows: 
l.ASTR101andl02,or210; 

2. MATH 120, 132, and 242 or equivalent; 

3. PHYCS 106, 107, and 108; 

4. A minimum of 1 8 hours in 300-level astronomy and physics courses (excluding PHYCS 319), 
of which at least 10 hours must be in astronomy courses. 

Additional courses recommended for students majoring in astronomy, especially those 
intending to pursue graduate study in astronomy, include MATH 280 and 285, and PHYCS 
331, 332, 333, 361, 386, and 387. 

Departmental Distinction. A student majoring in astronomy may earn distinction by attain- 
ing a minimum grade-point average of 4.5 in 300-level astronomy and physics courses. 

Chemistry 

Chemistry courses: 30 hours (including general chemistry) 

Supporting course work and/or prerequisites: 1 1 (or 10) hours of calculus, and 10 or 12 hours of general 

physics 

Students may pursue chemistry by following either (1) the professional curriculum in 
chemistry (leading to the Bachelor of Science in Chemistry) or (2) the chemistry major in the 
sciences and letters curriculum (leading to the Bachelor of Science in Liberal Arts and Sciences). 
The chemistry major in the sciences and letters curriculum (requirements described below) is 
used by some students planning chemistry careers, but it is more often chosen by students 
wishing to obtain chemistry backgrounds for use in related fields. 

In contrast, the professional curriculum in chemistry is a rigorous, specialized program 
suitable for those planning careers in chemistry. It meets standards prescribed by the 
American Chemical Society. The requirements are detailed on page 301 . 

REQUIREMENTS 

Students must complete at least 30 hours in chemistry and biochemistry, excluding CHEM 100, 
103, 115, 122, and 199. The 30 hours must include CHEM 340 or 342 and two other 300-level 
courses, at least one of which must be outside physical chemistry. Transfer credit in chemistry 
must be approved by an adviser in chemistry in order to be included in the 30 hours. Students 
must complete mathematics through MATH 242 or 245 and physics through PHYCS 1 02 or 1 08. 

Departmental Distinction. Students qualify for graduation with distinction by exhibiting 
superior performance in both course work and in senior thesis research. To be eligible, a 
student must have a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 4.0 and must complete a 
senior thesis course. 

Cooperative Education Program. Students accepted into the School of Chemical Sciences 
Cooperative Education Program spend alternate periods of attendance at the University with 
periods of employment in industry or government. Transcript recognition is given as well as 
a certificate of participation at graduation. Additional information and applications are 
available in the School of Chemical Sciences placement and advising office, 107 Noyes 
Laboratory, 505 South Mathews Avenue, Urbana, IL 61801. 



LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES 257 



Classics 

Classics courses: 30 to 36 hours (depending on option chosen) 
Supporting course work: 12 hours (chosen with approval of an adviser) 

The study of the languages and cultures of ancient Greece and Rome is valuable for those 
seeking a broad education the liberal arts or preparing for graduate study in one of the many 
fields of Classical, Medieval, or Renaissance scholarship. Within the general requirements of 
the major, the Department of the Classics offers individual programs designed to meet the 
needs and interests of each student. Close interaction between faculty and students, individual 
attention, tutorial instruction, opportunity for study abroad in Greece and Italy, and the 
unmatched resources of the Classics Library and the collections of ancient art and other objects 
from classical antiquity in the museums on campus provide unique advantages for the pursuit 
of classical studies. 

REQUIREMENTS 

Majors in classics may choose one of the following options. Each option requires an additional 
twelve hours of supporting course work. Majors must plan their programs in consultation 
with a departmental adviser. 

OPTIONS 

Classical Archaeology Option 

Thirty hours of classical civilization courses, of which at least 20 hours must be in classical 
archaeology (CLCIV 131,1 32, 21 7, 21 8, 231 , 232, 343, 344, 391 ), and at least 1 2 hours in advanced 
courses. 

Classical Civilization Option 

Thirty hours of classical civilization courses at the level of 1 14 and above, at least 12 hours of 
which must be in advanced courses. 

Classics Option 

Thirty-six hours of Greek and Latin, of which only 4 hours at the 100-level may be counted, 
including LAT 311, GRK 311, and at least 6 additional hours in advanced courses in each 
language. 

Greek Option 

Twenty-four hours of Greek (excluding GRK 101), including GRK 31 1 and at least 9 additional 
hours in advanced courses; 6 hours from CLCIV 114, 217, 232, 250, 343, 390, 391 (CLCIV 390 and 
391 apply only when offered on Greek topics). 

Latin Option 

Twenty-four hours of Latin (excluding LAT 101, 102, 105), 'including LAT 311 and at least 9 
additional hours in advanced courses; 6 hours from CLCIV 116, 218, 344, 390, 391 (CLCIV 390 
and 391 apply only when offered on Latin/Roman topics). 

Supporting course work. Twelve hours, selected with the approval of the adviser, from the 
following courses or from other appropriate courses: ARCH 210, 31 0, 31 1 , 31 8; ARTHI 111,215,

archaeology and classical civilization); Greek (not approved for options in Greek and classics); 
Latin (not approved for options in Latin and classics); COP 301, 302; other foreign languages. 
For Classical Archaeology, also: ANTH 102, 105, 107, 220, 250, 338, 351, 354, 355, 356, 378; 
ART&D 140; ARTPH 115, 215, 216, 220; C E 201; L A 150, 180. 

NOTE: Majors choosing the classical civilization and classical archaeology options are advised, 
but not required, to satisfy the college foreign language requirement with one of the classical 
languages. 

Departmental Distinction. Students seeking departmental distinction must have at least a 4.5 
average in relevant courses and should consult a member of the department's honors 
committee at the earliest opportunity. 



258 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



Comparative Literature 

Comparative literature courses: 15 hours 

Literature courses: 24 hours 

Supporting course work: 9 hours (chosen in consultation with an adviser) 

A student who elects comparative literature as a major must complete 48 semester hours in the 
courses indicated below, including at least 1 2 hours in courses numbered 300 or above. Besides 
knowing English, the student must have sufficient linguistic skill in at least one foreign 
language to participate in 200- and 300- level literature courses offered by the various foreign 
language and literature departments. 

As soon as a student contemplates choosing comparative literature as a major, he or she 
should consult the faculty adviser, who will assist the student in selecting appropriate courses 
that will be especially helpful as preparation for the advanced comparative literature training 
beginning with the junior year. Courses in classical civilization and in literature (particularly 
courses dealing with works from several countries) are especially recommended at relatively 
early stages of study. An ample selection of such courses at the 100 and 200 levels exists in the 
various literature departments. 

REQUIREMENTS 

The distribution of course work allows for considerable flexibility. It must include: 

1. At least 15 hours in comparative literature courses, including C LIT 201 and 202. The 
remaining hours should be selected from different types of courses (e.g., C LIT 141, 142, 189, 
190, 341, 351, 361, 371). 

2. At least 15 hours in one literature in the original language (ancient or modern, including Far 
Eastern and African), 12 of which are at the 200 level or above, studied in depth and in its 
historical development. (Normally this is the primary literature of the student's educational 
background.) 

3. At least 9 hours at the 200 level or above in a second literature in the original language. With 
the assistance of the adviser, these courses should be carefully chosen so as to correlate 
meaningfully with the student's primary literature. A student may center his or her interest 
on a cultural period such as medieval. Renaissance, neo-classical and enlightenment, or 
modern (nineteenth and twentieth centuries), or on genres, relations, or critical theory.^ 

4. At least 12 hours of credit in literature courses used to satisfy the three requirements above 
must be at the 300 level or approved for advanced hours in the College of Liberal Arts and 
Sciences. 

5. At least 9 hours in any single national literature or several, including comparative literature; 
or in other humanistic fields, such as history, philosophy, speech, art, music, psychology, 
sociology, theatre, anthropology, and Asian studies. Because some of the courses in these 
subjects are more suitable than others to balance a student's individual major in comparative 
literature, the student must follow the guidelines set by his or her adviser. 

6. Western civilization: C LIT 141 and 142 (6 hours) or HIST 111 and 112 (8 hours); these 
sequences may be used to satisfy the requirements, respectively, of (1) or (5) above. 
Beginning students in comparative literature are strongly urged to take the C LIT 141-142 
sequence. 

Departmental Distinction. To be eligible for distinction, a student must have at least a 4.5 
cumulative grade-point average and a 4.75 grade-point average in departmental courses, 
complete a senior thesis (C LIT 293), and receive the approval of the departmental honors 
committee. The departmental honors committee will determine the level of distinction to be 
awarded. 



^ If one of the literatures studied is English, a student who continues in a graduate program in comparative 
literature will be required to acquire a reading knowledge of a second foreign language (i.e., one foreign 
language for the B.A., two foreign languages for the M.A., three foreign languages for the Ph.D.).

requirements early in the junior year. 

Economics 

Economics and statistics courses: 27 to 30 hours. 

Supporting course work: 5 to 8 hours of mathematics, and 18 hours in courses related to major interest in 

economics 

Economics is a social science that studies the problems caused by scarcity and how individuals, 
institutions, and societies may deal with these problems. Economics shares common interests 
with business-oriented disciplines, such as finance and business administration. Economists 
frequently require quantitative skills, such as calculus and statistics, to derive economic 
principles that are useful in forming policies designed to solve economic problems. 

REQUIREMENTS 

The major in economics requires course work in three areas. For further information, see the 
Economics Bulletin available in the office of undergraduate studies of the department. The 
requirements are: 

1. Economics and Statistics: Introductory economics (ECON 102 and 103^) and at least 18 
hours of additional economics, including ECON 300 and 301 (but excluding ECON 199, 294, 
295, and 299); and 6 hours of statistics (ECON 172 and 173 or equivalent). 

2. Mathematics: The minimum requirement is MATH 125-134 or MATH 120-132 or equivalent 

(see Ecofiomics Bidletiji). Additional mathematics courses are recommended. 

3. Supporting course work: At least 18 hours in courses outside economics but related to the 
student's major interest in economics (see Economics Bulletin for details and examples). 

Departmental Distinction. A student must have a grade point average of at least 4.25 overall 
and at least 4.50 in economics; complete a research project (e.g., complete ECON 294-295 or 
299); and be recommended by the faculty research adviser.

Departmental Distinction. Students majoring in the Department of Germanic Languages and 
Literatures are urged to consult the departmental honors adviser by the second semester of the 
junior year for information pertaining to senior honors work and honors awards in the 
department. 

History 

History courses: 30 to 34 hours (including 100-level survey sequence[s]) 
Supporting course work: 20 hours (chosen in consultation with an adviser) 

Students in the history major should acquire a broad background from the study of the human 
experience in different cultures and time periods. A wide distribution of courses is therefore 
advisable; this is especially true for those who wish to enter teaching, government service, or 
professional schools for law, social work, museum and library science, business administra- 
tion, or labor and industrial relations. 

REQUIREMENTS 

1 . A prerequisite to the advanced work in history is one freshman-sophomore survey sequence 
(HIST 111-112, 131-132, 151- 152, 168 and 170, 173-174, 175-176, or 181-182). 

2. A second freshman-sophomore sequence may also be taken, but at least 18 of the required 
hours of history courses must be at the 200 and 300 level. 

3. One of the courses, at any level, must be in a pre-modern period of history. 

4. The history courses must include at least 12 hours in an area of specialization and at least 
6 hours in a second area. The following areas may be selected: ancient, medieval, and 
Renaissance (Europe); modern Europe since 1600 (including Russia); the United States and 
Latin America; Africa and the Near and Middle East; South, Southeast, and East Asia. With 
the approval of the departmental adviser and in consultation with a sponsoring professor. 



LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES 267 

a student may develop before the beginning of the senior year a special topical, geographi- 
cal, or chronological area of concentration (for example, prelaw, Latin American studies, or 
the world from 1789 to 1914). 

5. HIST 298 must be taken as part of the 30 to 34 hours required. 

6. At least 20 hours of supporting course work must be taken outside the history department. 
Students who have not had HIST 111 and 112 must take C LIT 141 and 142. Twelve of the 
20 hours of supporting courses must be at the 200 and 300 level. Traditional areas for such 
work are ancient and modern languages (excluding the first-year elementary courses and 
also excluding the second-year courses if those courses are being used to fulfill the language 
requirement in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences), anthropology, art history, classical 
archaeology and civilization, economics, English, American and comparative literature, 
geography, library science, music history, philosophy, political science, psychology, religious 
studies, and sociology. Nonhistory courses chosen from the multidisciplinary fields of 
women's studies, African studies, Asian studies, Latin American studies, Russian language 
and area studies, medieval civilization. Renaissance civilization, American civilization, and 
cinema studies are also accepted as supporting course work if they meet the criteria of 
relevance and academic level. History of science students and premedical and predental 
students may offer work in the physical and life sciences. All supporting course work 
should be related by time, area, and /or topic to the major and is subject to the approval of 
the history department adviser. 

For details on the major in history and the honors program, see the adviser in 300 Gregory 
Hall. 

Departmental Distinction. To be eligible for distinction, a student must have at least a 4.5 
grade-point average, complete a senior thesis, and receive the approval of an examining 
committee. The examining committee will determine the level of distinction to be awarded. 

Humanities 

Requirements: At least 45 to 51 hours 

Humanities departments in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, in addition to their own 
disciplinary majors, have developed and sponsor an interdisciplinary program of study, 
which encompasses several distinct programs designed to acquaint students in a coherent 
manner with topics that cross disciplinary boundaries. At present, the major in humanities 
includes program options in American civilization, cinema studies, history and philosophy of 
science, medieval civilization, and Renaissance studies. Because it is not possible to offer 
options in all specialties or topics of humanistic study, students whose interests do not coincide 
with one of the specific options are encouraged to consult with the school office and to consider 
developing their own programs through the Individual Plans of Study (IPS) major. Enrollment 
in the major in humanities requires election of one of the options. 

Each option of the major in humanities is supervised by a committee of faculty members 
whose own scholarship and educational interests have involved them in interdisciplinary 
teaching and research. An adviser for students is available in each option and is responsible 
for approving students' plans of study. Action on matters other than course selection is taken 
by the committee. 

MAJOR 

Enrollment in a major requires the following: 

1 . Elect one of the options offered within the major in humanities and file an option declaration 
with the LAS humanities office no later than the end of the first semester of the junior year. 
Students who do not begin work on option requirements by the junior year will be at a 
disadvantage. 

2. Select specific courses counted toward completion of an option with the advice and approval 

of the option adviser. Any coherent program is acceptable, subject to specific option 
requirements developed in consultation with the option adviser. 

3. For the elected option, complete the stated minimum number of hours (which will be at least 
45 hours) in courses applicable toward the major and in accord with the distribution 
requirements listed below (a, b, and c); at least 25 hours must be at the 200 and 300 level. 
NOTE: Some course selections may require prerequisite courses. Total hours will most 
likely be in excess of the 45-hour minimum; however, most students will complete two or 
perhaps three college general education distribution requirements in the process. 



268 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS

d. At least 3 hours in HUMAN 298 — Senior Seminar and Tutorial. 

Medieval Civilization Option 

This option is intended to introduce students to medieval culture, provide them with a sense 
of periods, names, ideas, and movements in sequence, and thus give them a synoptic view of 
the field. A student whose interests are primarily literary should consult with an adviser in 
comparative literature or in one of the language and literature departments. The required 
courses are designed to encourage students to read medieval texts, insofar as practical, in the 
manner in which medieval university students would have read them. In addition, a certain 
amount of training in the reading and interpretation of medieval documents and in the study 
of Latin and the medieval vernacular languages will bring students closer to the thought of the 
period. 
REQUIREMENTS (45 hours) 

a. Acquire a reading knowledge of a foreign language relevant to the student's interests in 
medieval civilization. In most instances, this requirement will coincide with the college 
foreign language requirement. The language should be selected in consultation with the 
option adviser. 

b. Complete two introductory courses of at least 3 hours each selected in consultation with the 
option adviser. 

c. Complete two advanced-level topically oriented courses of at least 3 hours each selected in

medieval civilization and should emphasize the international cultural and social unity of 
medieval civilization; sample topics include medieval vernacular literatures, mythology, 
the Bible and medieval exegesis, iconography, paleography and the medieval book, 
cosmography, geography in the Middle Ages, and the influence of Islam. Departmental 
courses, such as HIST 331 or 332 and CLCIV/SPCOM 315, or special topics courses, such as 
HUMAN 295, may be used to complete this requirement; but courses must be selected with 
the adviser's approval. 

d. Complete 27 hours of medieval-related course work selected in consultation with the option 
adviser from the departments of art history, history, literature, music, philosophy, and 
religious studies. 

e. Complete at least 3 hours of HUMAN 297 — ^Junior Seminar and Tutorial. The medieval 
civilization topic of HUMAN 297 will require an ability to read primary and secondary 
sources in a foreign language. 

f. Complete at least 3 hours of HUMAN 292 — Senior Thesis. The thesis should ordinarily be 
in one of the following areas: art, medieval Latin literature, vernacular literature, liturgy and 
worship, philosophy and theology, history, science.

a thorough study of a topic on the Renaissance. The successful completion of this paper is 
a prerequisite to Human 298. 

e. Complete at least 3 hours in HUMAN 298 — Senior Seminar and Tutorial, which will lead 
to the completion of a significant research paper. 

Departmental Distinction. To be eligible for graduation with distinction, a student must have 
a college grade-point average of 4.5 and an option grade-point average of 4.75 and must 
complete an additional one-semester course, independent study, or thesis. See the option 
adviser for details. 

Individual Plans of Study (IPS) 

Students in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences may choose any of the seventy different 
undergraduate degree programs offered within the college. These majors and specialized 
curricula, each with its own pattern of requirements and electives, are continuously reviewed 
by the sponsoring departments and the college and revised as needed. At the same time, it is 
not possible to anticipate or specify all possible undergraduate fields of study. So, in order to 
encourage the growth of new academic disciplines, the college sponsors the experimental 
major — the Individual Plans of Study program. IPS, initiated in 1971, allows the student to 
create an original major more appropriate for the individual's educational needs and charac- 
terized by a unique pattern of upper-level courses with a new academic direction. 

The development of an IPS program begins with the student's perception that a more 
appropriate field of study could exist beyond the present majors. Consultation with the 
secretary of the IPS advisory committee and with faculty members in related fields will soon 
estabUsh whether an original major is appropriate. Then, with the cooperation of one or more 
faculty members who consent to serve as advisers for this IPS program, an IPS major is planned 
and justified as carefully as if this were a departmental major. Although an IPS program is 
usually interdisciplinary, combining courses from several departments and even colleges, the 
IPS program is part of the sciences and letters curriculum. Thus, students are required to satisfy 
the sciences and letters requirements of rhetoric, general education, foreign language, and 
advanced hours; they must also complete at least 120 semester hours and satisfy the residence 
requirement. 

Once an IPS program is formulated, the student and adviser make formal application to the 
IPS advisory committee, which evaluates and decides whether a proposed IPS program is 
appropriate for the aims of both the student and the college. 

Students interested in IPS are encouraged to inquire at 912 South Fifth Street, Champaign, 
IL 61820, 333-4710, as early as possible in the sophomore year. In all cases, IPS programs must 
be initiated and approved before the end of the student's junior year. 

Departmental Distinction: To graduate with distinction, a student must (1 ) have a cumulative 
grade point average of at least 4.25 (A = 5.0), and (2) successfully complete a project that has 
been approved by the IPS advisory committee. Further information on requirements for 
graduation with distinction may be obtained from the secretary of the IPS advisory committee. 

Italian 

This major is sponsored by the Department of Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese. See page 290. 

Latin American Studies 

Requirement; At least 45 hours 

A major in Latin American studies provides an integrated exploration of a major world area. 
Depending upon the student's interests and career aspirations, individual programs of study 
are designed in close consultation with the student adviser in the Center for Latin American 



LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES 271 

and Caribbean Studies. All study programs should reflect an integrative, cross-disciplinary 
approach, and courses must be taken in at least three of these five areas or perspectives: 1) 
anthropological and geographical; 2) historical; 3) humanistic; 4) social, political, and eco- 
nomic; 5) ecological and environmental. 

Students are also expected to demonstrate a substantial command of a Latin American 
language (Spanish, Portuguese, or Quechua), either through course work or by passing a 
proficiency examination. Students majoring in Latin American studies are urged to include, 
during the summer or regular academic year, a period of study abroad in Latin America. 

REQUIREMENTS 

The major consists of a minimum of 45 semester hours of course work as follows: 
L LA ST 170 (3 hours), normally taken in the freshman or sophomore year. 

2. LA ST 290 (3 hours), a one-semester tutorial, normally taken in the senior year. 

3. Completion of 33 semester hours of approved courses with Latin American content. Of 
these, 12 semester hours must be in courses in one of the following perspectives, and 9 
semester hours in each of two other perspectives, as follows: 

a. Anthropological and Geographical Perspective. Normally courses in anthropology and 
geography. 

b. Historical Perspective. Normally courses in history. 

c. Humanistic Perspective. Normally courses in Spanish and Portuguese literature, com- 
parative literature, linguistics, art history, and music. 

d. Social, Political, and Economic Perspective. Normally courses in sociology, rural sociol- 
ogy, political science, economics, and agricultural economics. 

e. Ecological and Environmental Perspective. Normally courses in biology, forestry, and 
physical anthropology (primatology). 

f. When appropriate, approved courses with Latin American content in other scientific and 
professional areas may be substituted for courses in the five perspectives listed above 
with the consent of the adviser in the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies. 

4. Two courses (5 or 6 semester hours) in advanced conversation and composition in a Latin 
American language (Spanish, Portuguese, or Quechua) beyond the level specified by the 
LAS language requirement, or the equivalent as demonstrated by special examination. 
Students successfully completing the examination are expected to use these 5 or 6 hours in 
approved courses of Latin American content from any of the above perspectives (including 
literature courses). At the end of their language study, all students are urged to take an oral 
proficiency test based on ACTFL guidehnes. 

5. Each student's course of study is devised in consultation with the adviser in the Center for 
Latin American and Caribbean Studies and is subject to the adviser's approval. 

Departmental Distinction. To be eligible, a student must achieve at least a 4.5 grade-point 
average in the major, complete a senior thesis, and receive the approval of the center's research 
committee. 

Life Sciences^ 

(Including Bioengineering; Biophysics; Biology General; Biology Honors; Cell and Struc- 
tural Biology; Ecology, Ethology, and Evolution; Entomology; Microbiology; Physiology; and 
Plant Biology) 

Requirements for all options: 38 to 42 hours as given below. (Advanced and additional requirements vary 

according to option.) 

Mathematics: 5 hours of calculus 

Chemistry: 13 to 15 hours of chemistry through organic chemistry 

Biology: 10 hours of introductory biology 

Physics: 10 or 12 hours of general physics 

The School of Life Sciences (SOLS) departments have cooperated in developing a major in life 
sciences with a number of different options suitable for students with different educational 
objectives. Because of the interdependency of the biology subdisciplines and their reliance on 
the physical sciences, all undergraduates in this major are required to have a strong background 
in cognate sciences and broad exposure to biological materials, phenomena, and principles. 
Students who do not begin mathematics and chemistry in the freshman year generally will be 
at a disadvantage. In the advanced biological areas, students are expected to gain experience 
with living systems at the molecular, cellular, organismic, population, and community levels. 
The ways of achieving this training differ by option. 



272 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



NOTES: 

—Each student is required to complete all requirements of an elected option to satisfy the 
requirements of the life sciences major. 

— A student majoring in an undergraduate program in the School of Life Sciences may not 
apply toward graduation more than 15 hours of 100-level life science courses (including 
cross-listed courses on this campus and courses transferred from other institutions). 

— Because of the overlap in requirements among the various options and because it is a single 
major with ten options, students may not declare multiple options or complete two majors 
within SOLS. 

— The credit-no credit option is intended to encourage the exploration of subjects in which 
students have little background; that is, courses outside their major. Because of the extensive 
overlap of life and basic science requirements in the various options, students are not 
allowed to elect credit-no credit for any courses offered by, or cross listed by, the school.

Physiology is a subdivision of experimental biology that is concerned with the analysis of 
function in living cells or organisms with particularly strong emphasis on regulation and 
integration. Specialties within the field include subjects related to behavior (integrative 
neurophysiology), the relations of lower organisms with their environment (comparative 
physiology or physiological zoology), the relations of the human species with its environment 
(ergonomics and human physiology), interrelations between and functioning of organ sys- 
tems in the whole organism (mammalian physiology), and the fundamental molecular and 
cellular mechanisms of life (cell physiology and biophysics). 

Numerous choices must be made among the physical sciences, physiology, and related 
areas of biology. Therefore, it is essential that a student majoring in physiology consult with 
his or her adviser as early as possible and at frequent intervals. In addition to offering counsel

The major in music is designed for students whose academic interests are broader or more 
compelling than can be accommodated within the several music programs in the College of 
Fine and Applied Arts (page 227) . This program, which incorporates a high degree of flexibility 
beyond the core of required courses, can prepare the way for graduate study in music theory, 
composition, or the various branches of musicology. (Those students interested in perfor- 
mance or music education may refer to the fine and applied arts curricula starting on page 209 
of this catalog.) 

REQUIREIVIENTS 

All students in the music major must complete or pass proficiency tests in the following core 
of courses for a total of 29 to 31 credit hours:

All students in the major must possess or acquire some mastery of keyboard skills, by 
successfully completing MUSIC 160 and 161, or by demonstrating such skills through an 
appropriate audition. (Students who wish to pursue studies in applied music are required to 
satisfy the instrumental or vocal qualifying audition designed for students outside the School 



282 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

of Music; credits earned in applied music beyond the keyboard requirement stated above are 
generally considered elective.) Students in this program may not use hours from MUSIC 100 
toward the minimum 120 hours for graduation. Normally, students begin the study of music 
theory with MUSIC 101. 

The remainder of the program, consisting of at least 8 or 9 additional hours of upper-level 
music courses and 11 or 12 hours of supporting course work in other fields, is planned by the 
student with the help of a departmental adviser of his or her choice, subject to the approval of 
the departmental advising chairperson. Three general options are available in the music major:

Philosophy 

Requirements: At least 44 hours 

Philosophy courses: At least 26 hours 

Supporting course work: At least 12 hours, plus 6 to 8 hours of Western civilization 



LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES 283 

Philosophy is the oldest, broadest, and most fundamental form of inquiry. Some philosophical 
questions have to do with the understanding of ourselves and whatever else there may be. 
Others focus upon the nature of different forms of knowledge and experience, and upon ethical 
issues and problems of value. The study of philosophy is one of the most important elements 
in a good liberal education. It also improves one's ability to think clearly, and to construct, 
analvze, and criticize arguments of any kind. 

REQUIREMENTS 

The major in philosophy involves taking a minimum of 44 hours of philosophy and supporting 
course work, and consists of four parts: (1) the core philosophy courses (14 hours); (2) a 
program of supporting course work, involving at least 12 hours of course work in some other 
department(s); (3) a Western civilization sequence (6 to 8 hours); and (4) at least 12 hours of 
further course work in philosophy beyond the 1 00 level, including at least three additional 300- 
level courses. 

1 . Philosophy Courses. If possible, students should take these courses prior to the senior year. 
Substitutions may be made only with the approval of the chair of the department. 

a. PHIL 102 — Logic and Reasoning; or PHIL 202 — Symbolic Logic (those considering 
graduate work in philosophy should take PHIL 202) (3 hours) 

b. PHIL 203— Ancient Philosophy (4 hours) 

c. PHIL 206— Early Modern Philosophy (4 hours) 

d. PHIL 321- Ethics and Value Theory (3 hours) 

2. Supporting Course Work. A student may select either of two types of programs of 
supporting course work and should work out a specific program of the type chosen with the 
help and approval of a departmental adviser. 

Option 1: Intensive study in another discipline. 

This comprises a minimum of 1 2 hours of course work, normally beyond the 1 00 level, in one 
other discipline. 

Option II: A special program of study built around a unifying theme or topic. 

This involves a minimum of 12 hours of course work outside philosophy in one or more 
other discipline(s), normally beyond the 100 level, together with one or more philosophy 
course(s) related to the theme or topic. The program may focus upon a historical period, 
a certain subject (e.g., language, politics, science, religion, art), or a particular philosophi- 
cal problem, with outside course work in appropriate disciplines. 

3. Western Civilization General Education Sequence. To ensure that they have a general 
knowledge of Western civilization, including philosophy majors must take an approved 
tvN'o-semester sequence in Western civilization — currently either HIST 111 and 11 2, or C LIT 
141 and 142. 

4. Further Course Work. The remainder of a student's major is planned by the student with 
the help and approval of an adviser. It may include additional supporting course work in 
other disciplines, but must enable the student to satisfy the requirement of a total of at least 
1 2 hours of course work in philosophy beyond the 1 00 level (including at least three 300-level 
courses) in addition to the core courses. 

Departmental Distinction. Students may become eligible for graduation with distinction in 
philosophy in two ways: by pursuing either the thesis option or the course work option. (1 ) The 
thesis option involves taking a total of at least 29 hours of course work in philosophy and 
writing a thesis. (2) The course work option involves taking at least 35 hours of course work in 
philosophy and accumulating a grade-point average in all philosophy courses taken of at least 
4.5. Further information is available in the department office.

Political Science 

Political science courses: 27 hours, including POL S 150 

Supporting course work: 20 hours chosen in consultation with an adviser 

The Department of PoHtical Science encourages students to acquire a broad understanding of 
political science and to pursue in depth selected subfields of the discipline. To accomplish 
these objectives, the department provides courses of study that introduce students to the 
discipline and to its principal fields. Among these are American government and politics; 
public administration and public policy; comparative government and politics; international 
relations; political philosophy; and formal theory and empirical methodology. Supporting 
courses are an integral part of the program and should be selected with a view toward building 
a coherent selection adapted to the student's particular needs. 

REQUIREMENTS 

The major in political science requires 47 hours. Of these, 27 hours must be vdthin the 
Department of Political Science. They must include the following: 
I.POLS 150

the appropriate 200-level courses [or, in the case of American politics courses, POL S 1 50] or 
the consent of the instructor.) Up to 6 hours of credit in POL S 299 may be substituted for 
300-level credit. POL S 296 counts for this purpose as a 300-level course. 

Not more than 6 hours of individual study courses in political science or 6 hours for internships 
may be included in the major; a student with both independent study hours and internship 
hours may include a maximum of 9 hours of such credit in the major. POL S 293 is reserved for 
those seniors doing honors theses for distinction in political science and may not be counted 
in the 47-hour minimum required for the major. 

Outside the department, at least 20 hours of credit in supporting course work is required in 
a field or fields to be selected in consultation with the student's adviser. Supporting courses 
should complement subfield majors in political science chosen by the student. At least 12 of 
these 20 hours must be in courses numbered 200 or above. 

Departmental Distinction. A student in political science earns distinction with a 4.25 grade- 
point average in political science courses that must include 4 hours of POL S 293 (senior honors 
thesis). See departmental academic adviser for details.

Psychology 

Psychology courses: 32 hours including an introductory course 
Supporting courses: 12 hours chosen in consultation with an adviser 

Psychology is the scientific study of human and animal behavior. Psychologists study 

behavior in systems ranging from single cells to the individual person, from small groups to 

communities. Psychologists strive to describe behavior and to understand its underlying 

biological and social mechanisms. This enterprise, designed to better understand human 

behavior, accumulates knowledge that can help solve problems faced by individuals and by 

communities. 

Some areas of interest in psychology: 

Biological psychology is the study of the biological mechanisms underlying behavior. Biological 

psychologists generally are interested in the brain and the nervous system, in the endocrine 

system, and in other organismic processes. 



LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES 285 

Clinical psychology is the study of problems encountered by individuals, groups, and families — 
especially problems involving psychopathology. Clinical psychologists are interested in the 
application of psychological knowledge and techniques for the alleviation of these problems. 
Community psychology is the study of social processes and problems of groups, organizations, 
and neighborhoods, and the development and evaluation of progress for social change and 
social policy based on psychological understanding. 

Developmental psychology is the study of intellectual development, emerging personality, and 
the acquisition of language, as well as psychophysiological and social development processes 
as individuals develop from birth through old age. 

Engineering psychology uses scientific study to develop an understanding of human behavior, 
and to improve the efficiency of interactions between humans and machines. 
Experimental psychology is the study of basic behavioral and cognitive processes, including 
learning, memory, perception, attention, problem solving, motivation, and psycholinguistics. 
Measurement and mathematical psychology specialists develop mathematical models of psycho- 
logical processes and devise methods for quantitative representation and analysis of data 
about behavior. These are used in the study of differences between individuals in ability, 
personality, preferences, and other psychological phenomena. 

Personality psychology focuses on individual behavior. It is the study of ways to understand and 
describe an individual's behavior and to predict an individual's future behavior. 
Personnel psychology is the application of techniques of assessment, prediction, and interven- 
tion to areas of human resources in organizations, including, but not limited to, standard 
personnel selection and training, attitude assessments and interventions, and program evalu- 
ations. 

Social psychology is the study of attitudes, social perception and cognition, interpersonal 
relations, interpersonal interactions, and social and cultural factors affecting human behavior.

UNDERGRADUATE AREAS OF EMPHASIS 

A number of emphases within the major in psychology are designed for students who are 
seeking general liberal arts degrees, applied degrees, or degrees that will provide a solid 
academic background in preparation for graduate education in psychology and related fields. 
Lists of the required and suggested courses are available from the psychology undergraduate 
advising office. 



286 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

General psychology is designed for students interested in a broad liberal arts education 
with psychology as a focal area and for students who plan to attend graduate or professional 
school in fields other than psychology. Examples of these specializations include premedicine, 
prelaw, and preparation for graduate work in fields such as social work, business administra- 
tion, and labor relations. 

Graduate preparatory in psychology is designed mainly to provide students with a solid 
academic background that will prepare them for graduate education in a number of psychology 
specializations. Career opportunities in these specializations vary, as does the required level 
of graduate school training. While a doctorate is needed for most areas of academic 
psychology, a master's degree is sufficient for careers in many applied psychology fields such 
as personnel psychology, measurement psychology, and engineering psychology. 

The mental health workers program is designed to develop knowledgeable and experi- 
mental mental health practitioners capable of providing direct services to clients as well as 
supervising lower-level staff members in the implementation of treatment programs. Training 
includes a core of general and mental health-related psychology courses and a series of field 
placements. 

A combined engineering-liberal arts and sciences five-year program leading to bachelor's 
degrees from both colleges (see page 1 77) is available with a psychology major. Psychology and 
supporting courses, including allied courses in personnel psychology, are combined with the 
student's engineering curriculum to provide a specialization in engineering psychology. 
Tailored to complement the engineering curriculum, this program can be of potential benefit 
to the student's engineering career or used as the foundation for graduate training in 
engineering psychology. An engineering psychology program might include PSYCH 1 03, 1 58, 
230, 231 , 235, 245, 248, 258, 301 , 329, 356, 357, and 390. 

Departmental Distinction. Graduation with departmental distinction requires successful 
completion of the department's undergraduate honors program. This program is a three- 
semester pattern of courses designed to offer the promising undergraduate an opportunity to 
do sustained scholarly work in a specific research project, culminating in the preparation of a 
bachelor's thesis. Consult the undergraduate advisory office for details. 

ACADEMIC ADVISING 

The psychology undergraduate advising office is open to help students choose patterns of 
courses relevant to the various major options and specializations, as well as to help students 
explore graduate school, professional school, and career options. Advising is done by the 
faculty and a staff of academic counselors. 

A psychology student information center (PSI center), staffed by student volunteers, provides 
student-to-student information about various department and community educational op- 
portunities, career and graduate school planning, and related topics. 

Religious Studies 

Religious studies courses: 24 hours (minimum) 

Supporting courses: 6 to 8 hours of Western civilization, together with sufficient courses to total at least 48 

hours for the major 

The religion and culture area of interest is designed for students seeking a broad liberal arts 
education with a focus in religious studies. Persons thinking of the ministry or rabbinate are 
encouraged to consider this area seriously. It should be recognized that the large number of 
hours involved is due to more than the usual guidance in the choice of electives. 

The other five areas are designed especially for students thinking about graduate work in 
one of the traditional areas of religious studies.

Russian and East European Studies^ 

Requirements: at least 56 hours 

A major in Russian and East European Studies is offered through the Center for Russian and 
East European Studies. The aim of this major is to provide the student with (a) a base in one 
discipline that will permit the student, without much additional work, to qualify for graduate 
study; (b) an interdisciplinary focus on the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe; and (c) a start 
toward the language training needed for specialization in this area. 

REQUIREMENTS 

1 . At least 16 hours of language courses in Russian or another language of Eastern Europe or 
the Soviet Union, or fourth-semester proficiency. (Students contemplating graduate work 
in this major are advised to continue language study well beyond the minimum require- 
ment. 

2. At least 20 hours in courses that focus on the Soviet Union or Eastern Europe, including at 
least one course from each of three departments other than the department used for 
component (3). Although some of the courses used to count under (2) may be from the same 
discipline as those under (3), any one course can be counted in only one category. Courses 
currently being offered that focus entirely on the USSR or Eastern Europe include: ANTH 
382; ECON 357; GEOG 353; HIST 219, 320, 321, 326, 327, 328, 329, 330; POL 345, 346; POL S 
335, 346, 383; RUSS 113, 114, 115, 116, 119, 199, 215, 216, 222, 225, 315, 317, 324, 335, 337, 338, 
360, 370; SLAV 319; SOC 350; UKR 118, 398. Others may be counted with permission of the 
center director. (Language courses that concentrate on the basic skills of speaking, listening, 
reading, and writing cannot be counted as part of this component, although Russian language 
courses may be used as part of component (3) as described below.) 

3. At least 20 hours in a single discipline. Some disciplines traditionally used are anthropology, 
economics, geography, history, political science, Russian language and literature, and 
sociology. Among disciplines also used are business administration, education, English, 



LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES 289 

fine arts, French, German, journalism, linguistics, mathematics, philosophy, psychology, 
and various natural sciences. Students are encouraged to see their advisers regarding use of 
other disciplines. If a foreign language is used for this component, 20 hours must be taken 
beyond the introductory courses (i.e., normally the first two years, or the 101-104 sequence). 

Additional Courses. In addition to courses that deal wholly with Eastern Europe or the USSR 
and are mentioned above, there are many others devoted to the Soviet Union and Eastern 
Europe to some extent that may be counted as partial credit toward the fulfilment of this major. 
Students may consult the center director for further information on such courses. 

In selecting courses for the major, students should bear in mind the LAS advanced hours 
regulation that requires students to have 21 semester hours of 300-Ievel and approved 200-level 
courses for graduation, of which at least 12 hours must be in courses directly applicable to the 
major. Courses at the 300-level that are selected for both components (2) and (3) above may be 
used to meet this requirement. 

Departmental Distinction. Students who hope to qualify for distinction in the major spon- 
sored by this center should consult with the center director at the beginning of the junior year 
or earlier to prepare a suitable plan. This plan will usually include the writing of a substantial 
research paper in consultation with a faculty member of the center. 



'Revision of the Russian and East European studies major reflected in this statement was pending final 
approval at the time of publication. Also, at the time of publication, further revision of the major had been 
proposed. Students should consult their advisers regarding program requirements. 



Sociology
