  THE UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY AND THE WAR
  The University of Kentucky, like all colleges in the country, is
  doing its utmost to aid the nation to win the war. To military service
I and related work have gone many thousands of its former students
I and more than a hundred and forty members of the instructional and
  research staff. Curricular adjustments have been made with a view ·
  I to lending the most immediate and direct aid to the war e§‘ort and
  many special research projects have been established. Since May,
  1943, the University has operated a unit of the Army Specialized
  Training Program, involving at times as many as 1200 soldier trainees
J In March, 1944 the University’s quota in the Army Specialized
I Training Program was reduced to 220, in conformity with the general
I limitations placed on this program by the War Department. The
°   future of the University’s participation in soldier training cannot be
Q foretold. It should be emphasized, however, that the army training
  programs of the past have been operated without detriment to the
I regular schedule of classes and the future will see no change in this
; general policy.
I A complete program of studies will be operated for women and A
; I for men not in service, utilizing the regular instructional staff. Room— ’
I ing and boarding facilities will be adequate and as carefully super- _
I vised as usual. It is the purpose of the University to maintain its I
  program of liberal education and its professional schools at the same
I high level on which they have been operated in the past, while at the
same time meeting in every way possible the immediate demands
of the nation for trained military personnel.

institution operated under the direction of a board of trustees of
fifteen members. The membership of this board includes the
Governor, the Superintendent of Public Instruction, and the Com-
missioner of Agriculture, ex officio, and twelve members appointed ,
by the Governor, three of whom are alumni of the University and q
three, members of the State Board of Agriculture. The University
is one of a number of institutions known as land—grant colleges
which were established by the Morrill Act of 1862 and which have
‘ continued to receive federal assistance under the provisions of
this and subsequent laws relating to the teaching of agriculture ,
and the mechanic arts and the provision of agricultural experiment
stations and extension services in agriculture and home economics.
The University of Kentucky is on the approved list of the
Association of American Universities, and is a member of the
Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools and the
Kentucky Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. It is
accredited in its respective colleges or departments by the Associa-
tion of American Law Schools, the American Association of Col-
legiate Schools of Business, the American Association of Schools F
and Departments of Journalism, the American Library Association,
the National Association of Schools of Music, and the Engineers’
’ Council for Professional Development.
{ The major function of the University is that of instruction.
j For the performance of this function it is organized into the Col-
lege of Arts and Sciences, the College of Agriculture and Home
Economics, the College of Engineering, the College of Law, the
College of Education, the College of Commerce, the Graduate
School, and a Department of University Extension. Residence
instruction is given through four quarters of approximately twelve
` weeks each, the summer quarter being divided into two terms.
In addition to giving instruction to its student body, the Uni-
_ versity contributes to the welfare of the state through research,
experimentation, and public service, While all departments make
important contributions along these lines, certain divisions and
bureaus have been established specifically for these purposes
Included in this group are the Experiment Station and the Exten-
sion Division of the College ot Agriculture and Home Economics,
the Bureau of Business Research, the Bureau of Government
Research, the Bureau of School Service, the Bureau of Source
Materials in Higher Education, the Personnel Bureau, the Teachers

  The University of Kentucky began as a part of Kentucky Uni-
  versity under a cooperative plan authorized by the legislature in
. 1865. The purpose of this plan was to unite sectarian and public V
{ education under one organization. This experiment was tried for
{ a number of years. In the meantime, the federal funds authorized _
ll under the Morrill Act were used to develop agriculture and
{ mechanic arts in Kentucky University. In 1878, when the people
{ ’ of Kentucky decided to establish a state institution of higher
.{ learning, the College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts was A V
  . separated from Kentucky University and reestablished on land
{ _ given by the City of Lexington and the County of Fayette. Thirty ~
{ years later the legislature changed the name of the institution to
4{ the State University of Kentucky, and gave it additional financial
  support. In 1916 the name was again changed, this time to the
  present title, and additional maintenance was arranged by
  legislative act.
  ADMISSION TO THE UNIVERSITY
{
  Students are admitted to the University of Kentucky as fresh-
  men; with advanced standing from other institutions; as special
{ students; and as auditors. Admission to certain colleges is also
{ governed by special regulations.
{ Applications for admission to the University should be made to
§ the Registrar on forms furnished by the Registrar’s Office. Certified
{ copies of high school credentials and of work done in other institu- · p
  tions should be submitted to the Registrar’s Office in advance of the _
V   ` registration period. Failure to file credentials in time for checking
` { before the registration period will delay the student in aranging his
{ program. All admissions, including those to the professional schools
  and the Graduate School must be passed on by the Registrar’s Office.
{ Students who come to the University without having had their ad-
1 mission approved, do so at their own risk. The University reserves
{ the right to refuse consideration of applications not made before
a the beginning of the registration period. Prior to the assignment
  of any new undergraduate student to University classes, the student
{ must take the University classification test.
1
l Admission to the Freshman Class
{ Applicants who are graduates of accredited high schools will
. be admitted to the University on certificate, provided they have
at least fifteen units of acceptable high school work. A unit repre-
sents the study, of any subject for a school year of at least thirty-
two weeks, with five recitation periods a week, each of at least
_ _, forty-five minutes in length, or the equivalent thereof. Double

 GENERAL INFORMATION is
periods are required in shop, drawing, typewriting, and all other ‘
' . courses requiring no out-of-class preparation. One unit is the
minimum credit accepted in any foreign language, and one-half
unit the minimum in any other subject.
While the University does not prescribe a pattern of work for
‘ admission, it is strongly recommended that at least ten of the
units presented be chosen from the English studies, the social
· studies, mathematics, the foreign languages, and the laboratory .
sciences, and that within these ten units the student offer at least
three units in English, one and one-half in algebra, and one in
plane geometry. Should a student lack these courses as pre-
A requisites for any of his college work, he will be required to take  
them in college without credit, thus delaying his graduation.
Applicants who have graduated from unaccredited high schools
and those not graduated from high school may be admitted as
freshmen if, in addition to presenting the fifteen acceptable units,
they successfully pass the University classification examinations. ,
Admission to the University does not necessarily qualify a
student for admission to a particular college. In every case the
student must meet the admission requirements of the college in
which he is to enroll.
Admission to Advanced Standing
Resident Students. A resident of Kentucky who applies for
admission with advanced standing is expected to present evidence ,
that he is in good standing in every respect in the institution last
attended and in general is required to have maintained a standing
of 1.0 in all previous college work. Where all circumstances seem
· to warrant, the student may be admitted on probation when his
standing is below 1.0. In no case, however, shall a student be ad-
mitted whose record is such that he would have been dropped at
the University of Kentucky.
The University does not disregard at any time or under any `
conditions college or university records in order to admit applicants
solely on the basis of their high school records.
A transfer student is allowed only as many advanced credits as
he can present quality points. Otherwise, work done at a fully
accredited college or university is recognized credit for credit.
In order to be classified as fully accredited, a college must be a
member of a regional accrediting association or it must be on the
approved list of the state university of the state in which it is
located. Advanced standing from an unaccredited college may be
obtained at the University only by special subject examinations.
Non-Resident Students. A non-resident who applies for ad-
mission with advanced standing must in all cases have maintained

{ a standing of 1.0 in all previous college work. In other respects, the
  requirements and conditions of transfer are the same as for resident
E students. ‘
{ Written applications for admission with advanced standing
j should be submitted to the Registrar’s Office on forms furnished by '
g that Office.

Q Admission as a Special Student _
` 5 A graduate of another university or college may enter the Uni-
, versity as a special student. Other persons may be admitted as
  special students provided they are fully prepared to do the work
  desired and provided they are at least twenty-one years of age.
i ` Before a special student can become a candidate for a degree
j he must have his status changed to that of a regular student. This
§ may be done in one of two ways:
1 1. Satisfying the requirements for admission to the freshman _
I class.
| 2. Completing in residence one hundred quarter hours of credit
  with a standing of at least 1.5_in all work attempted.
 
, ‘ Admission as an Auditor
  By payment of the required fees any person may be admitted
* to a class or classes as an auditor. A student regularly enrolled in
  any college must apply to the Dean of the College in which he is
  registered in order to be an auditor. Other persons should apply
  to the Registrar’s Office for admission. No credit can be given for I
{ aa class audited, nor is the student permitted an examination for ,
credit. No instructor is authorized to admit an auditor to any of ‘
{ his classes except on presentation of an auditor’s card from the ,
i Registrars Office.
