HISTORICAL SKETCH
The creation of a university ^ in British Columbia was first
advocated by Superintendent Jessop in 1877, but it was not until
1890 that the Provincial Legislature passed an act establishing
a body politic and corporate named "The University of British
Columbia." In 1891 this act was amended to require that a meeting of the Senate be held within one month after the election of
the Senators by Convocation.' The Senators were elected, but a
quorum did not assemble on the date fixed by the Chancellor, Dr.
I. W. Powell, of Victoria. Thus the first attempt to establish a
university in British Columbia failed.
However, some of the work normally done in a university was
begun in 1894, when an act was passed which permitted the
affiliation of high schools in the Province with recognized Canadian
universities. In 1899 Vancouver High School was affiliated with
McGill University in order to provide First Year work in Arts,
and took the name of Vancouver College. First Year work in
Arts was offered by Victoria High School when it became Victoria
College by affiliation with McGill University in 1902. In the same
year Vancouver College undertook the Second Year in Arts.
In 1906 an act was passed incorporating the Royal Institution
for the Advancement of Learning of British Columbia, which, in
the same year, established at Vancouver the McGill University
College of British Columbia. The scope of the work undertaken
by this college was gradually increased until at the time it was
taken over by the University of British Columbia it was giving
three years in Arts and Science and two years in Applied Science.
"When the University of British Columbia opened in the autumn
of 1915, both the McGill University College of Vancouver and
Victoria College, which since 1907 had been a part of it, ceased
to exist.
Definite steps to establish the University were taken by Dr.
H. E. Young, Minister of Education, in 1907, when he introduced
a "University Endowment Act." This act was followed in 1908
by an act establishing and incorporating the University of British
Columbia and repealing the old act of 1890-1. This act, with its
subsequent amendments, determines the present constitution of the
University.
As authorized by an act passed by the Provincial Legislature
in 1910, the Lieutenant-Governor in Council appointed a Site
Commission to decide upon a site for the proposed University. The
Commission held its first meeting on May 25th, 1910, in Victoria,
and after a thorough examination of the Province recommended
the vicinity of Vancouver.   In the autumn the Executive Council "5f
18 The University oe British Columbia
decided to place the University at Point Grey—the site which the
Commission had named as its first choice. In 1911 the Legislature
passed an act authorizing the Lieutenant-Governor in Council to
grant this site to the University. The grant was increased in 1915,
so that it now consists of 548 acres at the extremity of Point Grey.
The waters of the Gulf of Georgia form more than half the
boundary of the University campus. A tract of some 3,000 acres
of Government land immediately adjoining the site, and lying
between it and the City of Vancouver, has been set aside by the
Government in order that University revenue may be provided by
its sale or lease.
In February, 1912, the Hon. H. E. Young, Minister of Education, called for competitive plans which should include plans in
detail for four buildings to be erected immediately, and a block
plan showing all the proposed buildings on the campus. Messrs.
Sharp and Thompson, of Vancouver, B. C, were the successful
competitors, and were appointed University Architects. ,
The first Convocation, held on August 21st, 1912, chose Mr.
F. L. Carter-Cotton as first Chancellor of the University. When
he retired at the end of two terms in 1918, Dr. R. E. McKechnie
was elected Chancellor, and served continuously until his death,
May 24th, 1944. On September 18th of that year the Hon. Eric
W. Hamber was elected by acclamation to fill out Dr. McKechnie's
unexpired term, and on March 7th, 1945, again by acclamation,
for the ensuing regular term.
In March, 1913, the Lieutenant-Governor in Council appointed
as first President of the University F. F. Wesbrook, M.A, M.D,
C.M, LL.D. On his death, October 20th, 1918, L. S. Klinck, Dean
of the Faculty of Agriculture, was appointed by the Board of
Governors as Acting President, and on June 1st, 1919, as President. When he retired, June 30th, 1944, he was succeeded by
Dr. Norman A. M. MacKenzie.
From its opening in 1915 till the Summer of 1925, the University
carried on its work in temporary quarters on part of the site of the
General Hospital in Fairview.
Construction work was commenced on the Science Building at
the permanent site in Point Grey in 1914, but was interrupted
because of war conditions. Work on this building was resumed in
1923,. and in the autumn of the same year the contract was let for
the Library. These two buildings, which are of stone and are
fireproof, conform closely to the original plans as prepared by the
architects in 1914. The initial units of these structures, as well
as nine other buildings which are of a less permanent character,
were completed in 1925, and at the beginning o2 Session 1925-26
the University commenced work in its new quarters. Historical Sketch 19
The inauguration of the new buildings was held on October 15th
and 16th, 1925, on which occasion honorary degrees were granted
by the University for the first time.
THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNIVERSITY
The Constitution of the University is governed by the British
Columbia University Act, B.C.R.S. 1936, c. 299, and Amending
Acts, which provide
That the University shall consist of a Chancellor, Convocation,
Board  of  Governors,   Senate,   Faculty   Council,   and  the
Faculties; that the Convocation shall be composed of the
Chancellor, the Senate,' all persons who became members
of  the   Convocation  prior  to  the  first  day  of  January,
1919, all persons holding academic appointments within the
University  and  whose  names  are  added  to  the  roll  of
Convocation by the* Registrar of the University from time
to   time   upon  instructions   from   the   President,   and  all
persons who have become graduates of the University; that
the  Chancellor shall be  elected  by  the members  of the
Convocation; that the Board of Governors shall consist of
eleven members—the Chancellor, who shall be the Chairman thereof, the President, three persons elected by the
Senate from among its members, and six members appointed
by the Lieutenant-Governor in Council; that the Senate shall
consist of: (a) The, Chancellor, and the President of the
University, who shall be chairman thereof; (b) the deans
and two professors of each of the  Faculties elected by
members of the Faculty; (c) three members to be appointed
by the Lieutenant-Governor in Council; (d) the principals
of the normal schools; (e) one member elected by the high
school principals and assistants who are actually engaged in
teaching; (f) one member to be elected by the governing
body of every affiliated college or school in this Province;
(g) fifteen members to be elected by Convocation from the
members thereof;  (h) one member elected by the British
Columbia Teachers' Federation.
It is further provided that the University shall be non-sectarian.
The University Act gives the University full powers to grant
such degrees in the several Faculties and different branches of
knowledge as the Senate may from time to time determine.    It
reserves for the University the sole right in this Province to confer
degrees, except in Theology, and it expressly enacts that "No other
university having corporate powers  capable of being  exercised
within the Province shall be known by the same name, nor shall
any such university have power to grant degrees."

LOCATION AND BUILDINGS
Location
The University is situated on the promontory which forms the
western extremity of the Point Grey Peninsula. On three sides it
is bounded by the Gulf of Georgia. The site comprises an area of
548 acres, of which approximately one-half is campus. In all
directions appear snow-capped mountains, strikingly rugged and
impressive.
Buildings
The buildings, planned to meet the requirements of fifteen
hundred students, are of two classes, permanent and semi-permanent. The" former were designed by the University architects,
Messrs. Sharp and Thompson, the latter by architects of the
Department of Public Works of the Provincial Government. The
permanent buildings have been erected in the location originally
assigned for them; the others in the quadrangle designated as
"unassigned" in the original plan. By utilizing the "unassigned"
area for the semi-permanent buildings, all the locations intended
for future expansion have been left available.
The entire mechanical equipment of these buildings was
designed after a close study had been made not only of present
requirements, but of the ultimate development of the institution.
This consideration accounts for the fact that only a part of the
present equipment is permanent. After a careful survey of the
whole situation, a forced hot water system was found to present
advantages that made its adoption advisable. Direct radiation with
a system of warmed air supply and extraction for ventilation is
used to take care of the heat losses in the buildings. A separate
system of ventilation is installed for all sanitary conveniences, and
a specially constructed system for fume closets. The various
services throughout these buildings, such as hot and cold water,
distilled water, gas and steam for laboratory purposes, compressed
air, etc., with the necessary apparatus, are all of a modern type.
An attempt has been made to reduce vibration and noise to a
minimum by installing all moving apparatus oh floating slabs, with
a further insulation of cork.
Library •
The University Library consists of more than 150,000 volumes.
It includes representative works in all the courses offered by the
University, and a growing collection of books in other subjects.

ceedings of learned societies, and its long runs of scholarly periodicals—the materials essential to research.
It is one of three Canadian Depositories of the Library of
Congress Catalogue, a collection of 1,750,000 printed cards. The
catalogue is kept fully up to date, and between 50,000 and 60,000
new cards, issued e'ach year, are interfiled as received. ,
The Library also possesses a College Art Teaching , Equipment
Set, organized and presented by the Carnegie Corporation of New
York. This consists of about 185 specially selected works covering
the fine and applied arts, and of more than 2,000 reproductions,
photographed or coloured, illustrating these.
, Another notable gift to the University, made by the Carnegie
Corporation of New York, is the College Music Set. This now consists of over 1,500 records representing musical development in all
its forms, with-reproducing instruments specially designed for a
large auditorium, and a collection of books on musical theory and
history, together with a large number of orchestral scores. The,
Set is regularly used for student recitals, and to illustrate lectures
on the appreciation of music.
The Library receives regularly over 900 serial publications,
The book collection is classified throughout on the Congressional
system. -A
Books to which the teaching staff have specially referred their
students are placed in a "Reserved" class. These are shelved apart
from the main collection, and are loaned only for use in the building, and for a limited period.
Unbound periodicals are not loaned. Bound periodicals, and
books that are costly, rare, or unsuitable for general circulation,
are loaned only under special conditions.
While the Library is primarily for the staff and students of
the University, its resources are available to those of the general
public engaged in research or special study, and who make personal
application to the Librarian for the privilege of its use. Such
persons are known as "extra-mural readers." By order of the
Board of Governors a fee of $1.00 per calendar year is charged
such readers'. In addition,' they pay necessary mailing costs, a
deposit being required from those unable to call personally for
books loaned.
The Library also administers the book collection of the University
Extension Department. This consists of about 1,600 volumes, and
is increasing as the Department's work develops.
( The University of British Columbia
The Extension Department's collection also includes more than
4,000 plays, for the service of dramatic groups and theatre students
throughout the Province.
The Extension Department's book and play collections are available to those who have registered with the Department.
The University is deeply indebted to all who have made gifts to
the Library. These have been both valuable and numerous. Their
number prevents detailed acknowledgment, but recognition should
be made of a number of sets of transactions, and complete or partial
sets of scientific periodicals, given by societies and friends of the
University. The most interesting and valuable of these gifts are
listed in the annual report of the Library to the Senate.
Museums
These consist of (1) the Burnet Collection of South Seas and
other ethnological specimens, housed on the main floor of the
Library; (2) the Geological and Geographical Museum, in Room
116, Applied Science Building; (3) the Zoological Museum, housed
in various rooms of the Applied Science Building.
The Burnet Collection was made by the late Frank Burnet, who
donated it and arranged it in its present home. It contains groups
of artifacts representative of the ethnology and archaeology of
various parts of the Pacific Basin. The largest unit, 1170 catalogued
items, is from the islands of the South Pacific, but Malaysia and
North and South America are also strongly represented. Doors
are open from 4 to 6 hours on every week-day throughout the year.
The Geological and Geographical Museum has been developed as
a medium for the visual instruction of students and visitors. It is
closely coordinated with the Department of Geology and Geography, but is used freely by students of sociology and history, as
well as by art students from city studios. The exhibits include the
Dr. H. M. Ami collection of pre-historical artifacts from Les Eyzies,
France; the Buttimer collection of Indian baskets; the Michell
Pierce collection of Eskimo clothing and utensils; the Peach and
Home geological model of the Assynt Mountains, Scotland; suites
of fossils, minerals, birds, and mammals, relief map-models, and
many other things of interest.
The Zoological Museum, containing material representative of
both the vertebrate and the invertebrate fields, is housed mainly in
the northern wing of the Applied Science Building. Owing to lack
of room in the museum, the collection is scattered in hallways and
rooms wherever space can be found. The collection of marine invertebrates of the northeastern Pacific Ocean is one of the largest iiwjVTf"* ''..'-    •,.,-   '    ' • '■■*■ '"•    .   '■,:"■ ..      ■   •■■■■'-■■ -..-via

extant. A collection of 12 beautifully mounted heads of B. C.
game, donated by Messrs. G. L. and R. J. Pop, hangs on the walls
of Room 100, Applied Science Building, and a fine suite of African
game horns, donated by Mr. W. F. Byers, hangs in Room 120 of
the same building.
The collections are freely available to students and research
institutions.
Gymnasium
This building was completed in 1929 and presented to the
University by the Alma Mater Society. It is situated adjacent to
the tennis courts and conveniently close to the playing fields. The
style of architecture and exterior finish harmonizes well with that
of the other buildings on the campus. The playing floor has an
area of 6,000 square feet, and is surrounded on three sides by tiers
of benches which will accommodate 1,400 persons. In the space
behind these seats are located the dressing rooms, drying rooms,
locker rooms, and shower baths. Approximately one-third of this
space has been set aside for the exclusive use of the women
students. The offices of the instructors in physical education are
located in the gymnasium. In the building are included also a
properly equipped training and first-aid room, an equipment room,
and a kitchen. Facilities for general gymnasium and indoor athletic
work have been provided.
Stadium and Playing Fields
In accordance with the original landscape plan prepared by
Mawson in 1913, the main playing field area, consisting of about
16 acres, is situated east of the East Mall and north of the University Boulevard. Development work was- started early in
January, 1931, as an aid to the acute unemployment situation, and
was made possible by funds provided chiefly by subscriptions from
the Faculty, students, and friends of the University. Much of the
labour was obtained through the courtesy of the Relief Department
of the City of Vancouver. Twenty thousand cubic yards of soil
and gravel were used to bring the track and field to grade.
In addition to the main playing field of the stadium, there are
three other full-size fields and a number of smaller areas set aside
for outdoor games.
The first section of the grandstand for the stadium was erected
in the summer of 1937 on the west side of the main playing field.
It is a covered, reinforced concrete structure, 126 feet long and
provides seating accommodation for 1,600 spectators.    On either
■- •■ -■ V
24< The University of British Columbia
side are two wooden bleacher sections of 500 seats each. The plan
provides for the ultimate continuance of the main section around
the field and therefore the present bleachers are constructed in
movable sections. Underneath the present main stand there are
locker rooms, dressing rooms, showers, ticket booths, and specially
constructed drying rooms. Space is also provided for two squash
racket courts, which will be completed as soon as funds are available. Funds for the construction of the grandstand were provided
through a $40,000 bond issue by the Alma Mater Society. The
Provincial Government has undertaken to assume the annual
charges for interest on the bonds.
The Brock Memorial Building
In connection with the celebration of the twenty-first anniversary of the opening of the University in 1936, it was decided
that a memorial be established by general appeal to students,
graduates, and friends of the University throughout Canada. A
committee representing all branches of the University decided
that the memorial should take the form of a student union building,
dedicated to the memory of the late Dean of Applied Science,
Reginald W. Brock, and Mrs. Brock, by whose tragic deaths as a
result of an aeroplane accident the University suffered a great loss.
The original fund for the construction of the building was
subscribed by relatives of Dean and Mrs. Brock, friends of the
University throughout Canada and the United States, alumni
and students of the University, and former colleagues of Dean
Brock. The balance of the amount required to complete construction was provided by the students and the Board of Governors
in cash and through a bond issue of the Alma Mater Society.
Furnishings for the building were provided from a fund raised
over a period of years by the Women's Union Building Committee
of the University.
The building is situated adjacent to the playing fields and
gymnasium. In it are located the offices of the Alma Mater Society
and various clubs and student activities. The building contains,
also, common rooms, lunch and tea rooms, and accommodation for
social activities. In architectural design and exterior finish, it
harmonizes well with the other buildings on the campus.
The Brock Memorial Building was dedicated in January, 1940.
Forest Products Laboratories
The Forest Products Laboratories of Canada, Vancouver Laboratory, which is maintained by the Forest Service of the Department Location and Buildings
25
of Mines and Resources, Canada, occupies three buildings provided
and kept up through a co-operative agreement between the
University and the Dominion Government.
Plan of Campus
The plan at the back of the Calendar shows the buildings which
have been erected and indicates the nature of their construction.
It also shows their relation to the other groups of buildings which
are to be erected in the future.

GENERAL INFORMATION
The Session
Tfie academic year begins on the first of September and ends
on the last day of August. The Winter Session is divided into two
terms—the first, September to December; the second, January to
May. The Summer Session consists of seven weeks' instruction in
July and August. For Admission to the University, see page 30,
and for Registration and Attendance, see page 32.
Courses of Study
The University offers instruction in each of the three Faculties,
Arts and Science, Applied Science (including Nursing), and Agriculture, leading to the degrees of Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of
Commerce, Bachelor of Education, Bachelor of Home Economics,
Bachelor of Applied Science, Bachelor of Science in Forestry, and
Bachelor of Science in Agriculture. In the Faculty of Arts and
Science courses are offered leading to a Diploma in Social Work
and a Teacher Training Diploma. Advanced courses of instruction
and facilities for research leading to a Master's degree are offered
in each Faculty. Admission to these advanced courses, or to the
privileges of research, does not in itself imply admission to candidacy for a higher degree.
Academic Dress
The undergraduate's gown is black in colour and of the ordinary
stuff material, of ankle length, and with long sleeves and the yoke
edged with khaki cord. The graduate's gown is the same, without
cord. The Bachelor's hood is of the Cambridge pattern, black
bordered with the distinctive colour of the particular Faculty; the
Master's hood is the same, lined with the distinctive colour. The
Bachelor of Commerce hood differs from that of Bachelor of Arts
by the addition of a white cord; that of the Bachelor of Science in
Forestry from that of Bachelor of Applied Science by the addition
of a green cord; while the Bachelor of Education hood has a border
of white edged with a cord of University blue.. The colours are, for
Arts and Science, the University blue; for Applied Science, red;
for Agriculture, maize.
University Health Service
This service was begun in 1925 when the Lieutenant-Governor
in Council, upon the recommendation of the Provincial Health
Officer, appointed a Medical Health Officer for the University Area. ZW/VW'^V™?^*""
■■■■"%
General Information 27
In the Fall of 1927, the Provincial Health Officer added to the
University Health Service a Public Health Nurse, thus commencing
the continuous operation of a full-time local Health Department on
the campus and University Endowment Area.
In November, 1936, the University Endowment Area became
part of the Metropolitan Health Area under the direction of the
Metropolitan Health Committee, thus affording the University the
•extra services and facilities enjoyed by the larger organization,
which provides through its Health Units a Public Health Service
to the entire Greater Vancouver Area. The University Area is
now Health Unit 3A of the Greater Vancouver Area.
The offices of the University Health Service are located in the
Auditorium Building. The first aid furniture and supplies for
this office were the generous gift of the Graduating Class of 1927.
Purposes of the University Health Service
• The first purpose of the Health Service for Students is to supervise the physical and mental health of the student from the time
of admission to the University until graduation, so that as the
student takes his place in the outside world he will not be handicapped by physical defects or mental breakdown during the period
in which he is adjusting himself to his career.
On admission to the University each new student must report
to the Health Service Office to make arrangements for a medical
examination. Those students who have been out a year or more
are also required to report. All undergraduate women students
are required to report immediately for a re-cheek medical examination to determine their capacity for physical training. The
student is informed of any physical defect, given advice, and urged
to have remedial conditions corrected. Evidence, satisfactory to
the medical officer, of successful immunization against smallpox is
required. Preventive vaccinations and inoculations are given by
the Health Service.
The Medical Officer is available at specified hours for consultations with students on health problems.
One of the most important tasks of the Health Service is the
control of communicable disease. Much valuable time can be
saved the student body by the prompt and immediate application
■of preventive measures in checking the spread of communicable
disease.
Tuberculosis Control
Because tuberculosis occupies first place as a cause of death of
persons of college age, it is given special attention. The University
Health Service therefore gives to each new student at the time of »■■■"
mm
28 The University of British Columbia
his entrance examination a tuberculin skin test and provides for
an X-ray of the chest to those showing a skin reaction to tuberculosis. This project is of very great value, for when tuberculosis
is diagnosed and treatment instituted before physical breakdown
occurs, the patient is saved from years of invalidism and perhaps
death, and his fellow students are protected from infection.
Rules Governing Communicable and Other Illnesses
Students developing any illness or suffering from any injury
while on the campus should apply for first aid to the University
Health Service. This is particularly required if the student
develops any illness of a communicable nature, including the
common cold.
Students developing any illness or suffering any injury while
at home, boarding house, fraternity house, etc., are required to
report the same to the University Health Service. The development of any communicable disease in a University Student or
any person living in the same house, must be reported by the student
to the University Health Service without delay. Students exposed
to a communicable disease may be permitted, by special order of
the Medical Health Officer, to attend the University for a prescribed
period, despite the exposure.
Such students shall report daily (or oftener, at the discretion
of the Medical Health Officer) to the University Health Service
for such prescribed period. Failure to so report will result in
immediate exclusion from the University.
Students absent on account of illness must report to the Health
Service Office before attending lectures. If a doctor has been
in attendance the student is to bring a medical certificate from
him. All certificates and re-admission slips are forwarded to f;he
Dean of the Faculty. If the student is absent from an examination
the student must present a medical certificate, which is to be in
the Health Service Office within one day after the termination of
the examination period. A medical certificate must show the
nature and the period of the disability. Medical report forms
may be obtained from the Health Service Office.
The Health Service is a preventive service and can not provide
treatment for sick students.
Summer Session
The University Health Service provides a health service for
students attending the Summer Session. Details of this service
may be found in the Announcement of the Summer Session. •ft'-i' --••% '-   -■•**- ••     -  . • thtrm
General Information
Physical Education
Physical Education was organized at the University during the
session 1935-36. The work for the present is under the general
supervision of a committee appointed by the President of the
University. War-time conditions serve to emphasize the need for
physical fitness. All medically fit men and women students are now
required to devote at least one hour a week to physical training.
The men take their work as part of the military training programme.
Particular attention is given to activities which develop all-round
physical condition rather than special techniques and skills in
recreational or team sports.
The Physical Education programme contributes to the mental
and physical health of the student body. Participation is encouraged
in physical activities which will be useful as a health measure and
in providing social Opportunities in adult life. The activities are
limited by the accommodation at the gymnasium. They include
for men: badminton, basketball, boxing, cross-country running,
golf, tumbling, volleyball, wrestling, track and field, football, and
rugby. The women's activities are: archery, badminton, basketball, dancing, gymnastics, group games, light apparatus, and volleyball.
A course in recreational leadership is given for those who are
interested in play leadership in schools, playgrounds, social centres,
and leisure time organizations.
The geographic location of the University precludes .the possibility of any extensive intercollegiate athletic competition and
consequently great emphasis is placed for both men and women
upon intramural athletics.
Dean of Women
During the session the Dean of Women may be consulted by
parents and students on matters pertaining to living conditions,
vocational guidance, and other questions that directly affect the
social and intellectual life of the women students.
Board and Residence
A list of boarding-houses which receive men students may be
obtained from the Registrar, and a similar list for women students
may be obtained from the Dean of Women. Men and women
students are not permitted to lodge in the same house, unless they
are members of the same family, or receive special permission from
the Senate. Women students under twenty-five years of age are A
permitted to occupy suites in apartment houses only when accom-
- --. •■■ 3*»

panied by some older person. The Dean of Women undertakes the
inspection of all boarding houses and housekeeping rooms listed for
the accommodation of women students. Any residence accommodation arranged by women students for themselves must also meet
with the approval of the Dean of Women, who should be informed
of such plans in advance. The cost of good board and lodging is
from $33 to $40 a month; of a room alone, $10 to $15 a month. A
grill is operated under the supervision of the University, and lunch,
afternoon tea, and light supper may be obtained there at very
reasonable prices.
General Conduct
The University authorities do not assume responsibilities which
naturally rest with parents. This being so, it is the policy of the
University to rely on the good sense and on the home training of
students for the preservation of good moral standards.
ADMISSION TO THE UNIVERSITY
All enquiries relating to admission to the University should be
addressed to the Registrar.
The accommodation for students in the University is limited.
The University, therefore, reserves the right to limit the attendance.
The Faculty of Applied Science reserves the right of selection
and admission of students entering the Second Year of the Combined Course and the Third Year of the Double Course in Arts
and Science and Nursing.
The University reserves the right to limit the registration in, or
to cancel, any of the courses listed. Limitation may be imposed if
the numbers desiring any course are found to be too large for the
lecture rooms and laboratories available for that course, or for
the number of instructors in the department concerned, or for the.
equipment and supplies which can be obtained. Certain courses
may be cancelled if the numbers of instructors in the departments
concerned prove to be inadequate to offer all the courses listed.
1. Except under special circumstances, no student under the
age of sixteen is admitted to the University. For admission to the
Second Year of the course in Nursing (or the Third Year of the
Double Course in Arts and Nursing) a student, must be eighteen
years of age, and for admission to any course in Social Work,
twenty-one years of age.
2. Candidates for admission to the courses in the First Year of
the Faculty of Arts and Science or the Faculty of Agriculture -    ■—,.
Admission to the University ^81
and to the course in Nursing in Applied Science are required to
pass the University Entrance (Junior Matriculation) examination
of the Province of British Columbia or to submit certificates showing that they have passed an equivalent examination elsewhere.
Special regulations are prescribed for admission to courses in
Applied Science, and are given under the heading of Admission in
the Applied Science section of the Calendar.
3. Students who have passed the Senior Matriculation examination are admitted to the courses of the Second Year in the
Faculty of Arts and Science. Students who have partial Senior
Matriculation standing will be granted credit in the First Yei.r in
each subject in which they have made 50 per cent, or over.
4. A student who has a failure in a subject of the University
Entrance examination standing against him will not be admitted
to the University.   .
5. The University Entrance and Senior Matriculation examinations of the Province of British Columbia are conducted by the
High School and University Matriculation Board of the Province.
This Board consists of members appointed by the Department of
Education and by the University. The requirements for these
examinations are stated in the publication, Requirements for
University Entrance and Senior Matriculation, issued by the University. The courses of study for the various grades in the high
schools are given in the Programme of Studies for the High Schools,
issued by the Provincial Department of Education.
6. Certificates or diplomas showing that a candidate has passed
the matriculation examination of another university will be
accepted in lieu of the University Entrance or Senior Matriculation
examinations if the Faculty concerned considers that the examination has covered the same subjects and required the same standards. If, however, the examinations cover some but not all of
the necessary subjects, the candidate will be required to pass, the
examinations in the subjects not covered.
7. A candidate who wishes to enter by certificates other than a
Matriculation or University Entrance certificate issued in British
Columbia should submit to the Registrar the original certificates.
If he wisnes these returned to him, he must present also a copy of
each certificate for record at the University. He should under no
circumstances come to the University without having first obtained
from the Registrar a statement of the value of the certificates he
holds, as these may lack one or more essential subjects, or the work
done in a subject may not be adequate, or, again, the percentage
gained may not be sufficiently high. Moreover, it must be remembered that a certificate may admit to  one Faculty and not to
,.-:fo The University of British Columbia
another. When an applicant's diploma or certificate does not show
the marks obtained in the several subjects of the examination, he
must arrange to have a statement of his marks sent to the Registrar
by the Education Department or University issuing such diploma
or certificate.
8. A student of another university applying for exemption from
any subject or subjects which he has already studied is required
to submit with his application a calendar of the university in
which he has previously studied, together with a complete statement of the course he has followed and a certificate of the standing
gained in the several subjects.* The Faculty concerned will determine the standing of such a student in this University.

Registration and Attendance
1. There are four classes of students:
(a) Graduate students—Students who are pursuing courses of
study in a, Faculty in which they hold a degree, whether
they are proceeding to a Master's degree or not. Students,
however, who are proceeding to a Bachelor's degree in
another course in the same Faculty in which they hold a
degree, or in another Faculty, will register as undergraduates.
(b) Full undergraduates—Students .proceeding to a degree in
any Faculty who have passed all the examinations precedent
to the year in which they are registered.
(c) Conditioned undergraduates — Students proceeding to a
degree with defects in- their standing which do not prevent
their entering a higher year under the regulations governing Examinations and Advancement of the Faculty in
which they are registered.
(d) Partial students—Students not belonging to one of the
three preceding classes.   (See 7, below.)
2. All students are required to register at the office of the
Registrar on or before the last day for registration, to furnish the
information necessary for the University records, to enrol for
the particular classes which they wish to attend, and to sign the
following declaration:

make clear which courses are required to complete the lower year.
6. Students desiring to make a change in the course for which
they have registered must apply to the Registrar on the proper
form for a "change of course." Except in special circumstances,
no change will be allowed after the second week of the session. If the
application is approved by the Faculty concerned, the Registrar
will give the necessary notifications.
7. Partial students, who are not proceeding to a degree, are not
normally required to pass an examination for admission, but before
registering they must produce a certificate showing that they have
satisfied the Dean and the heads of the departments concerned
that they are qualified to pursue with advantage the course of
study which they propose to undertake.
8. Students are required to attend at least seven-eighths of the
lectures in each course that they take. Admission to a lecture or laboratory and credit for attendance may be refused by the instructor
for lateness, misconduct, inattention, or neglect of duty. Absence
consequent on illness or domestic affliction may be excused only by
the Dean of the Faculty concerned, and medical certificates or other
evidence must be presented. If the absence occurs during the session,
the student must appear in person, with the certificate, at the University Health Service immediately on return to the University,
and before attendance upon class work. The University Health
Service will examine the person concerned and will immediately
forward the certificate, with report thereon, to the Dean of the
Faculty, // the absence occurs during the examinations, the
certificate must be sent to the Dean of the Faculty within two
days after the termination of the examination period. A medical
certificate must show the nature and the period of the disability.
Medical report forms may be obtained from the Dean's office. In
cases of deficient attendance students may (with the sanction of
the Dean and the head of the department concerned) be excluded
from the Christmas or the final examinations in a course; but, in
the case of a final examination, unless the unexcused absences
exceed one-fourth of the total number of lectures in a course, such
student may be permitted to sit for supplemental examination.
(See regulation in each Faculty in reference to Examinations and
Advancement.)
9. All candidates for a degree must make formal application
for graduation at least one month previous to the Congregation at Registration and Attendance
which they expect to obtain the degree.    Special forms for this
purpose may be obtained from the Registrar's office.
