may pass the Cincinnati examination on payment of a fee of ten dollars. Candidates in Cincinnati will assemble at 8 A. M., on Thursday, June 28, in some place to be announced in the daily papers of that city.
No person will be examined for admission to College at any other time than those above specified.
ADMISSION WITHOUT MATRICULATION.
The elective courses of study are open to persons not less than twentyone years of age, who satisfy the Faculty, without passing the usual examination for admission, that they are fitted for the courses they select. They will receive no degree; but at the end of each academic year they will receive a certificate of proficiency in those courses which they pursue during the year, and in which they attain not less than seventy-five per cent.
Persons who wish to avail themselves of this provision must present themselves at Harvard Hall, September 27, 1877, at 10 A. M., with the necessary testimonials as to age, character, and fitness to attend the courses they wish to pursue.
TESTIMONIALS AND BOND.
All candidates for admission are required, at the time of the final examination for admission to the Freshman Class, to produce certificates of good moral character; and students from other colleges are required to bring certificates from those colleges of honorable dismission.
Every candidate, if admitted, must furnish to the Bursar a bond for four hundred dollars, executed by two bondsmen, one of them a citizen of Massachusetts, as security for the payment of College dues. If the student prefer, however, he may in place of the bond make a deposit with the Bursar for the same purpose. A similar bond for two hundred dollars, or a deposit, will be required of unmatriculated students.
ANTICIPATION OF PRESCRIBED STUDIES.
As the prescribed studies of the Sophomore and Junior years are of an elementary character, students who wish to be relieved from attendance at College exercises in one or more of them will be so excused, if they pass a satisfactory examination in such study or studies at the time of their examination for admission, or at the beginning of the year in which the study is pursued in College. Preparation for such examination can often be made while the student is preparing for College, or in the long vacation, and time may be thus gained for higher courses of study.
For information concerning the College not contained in this circular the Catalogue should be consulted.
The College itself no longer issues an annual catalogue. “The Harvard University Catalogue” (price in cloth, 75 cents ; in paper, 50 cents) is published by MR. CHARLES W. SEVER, bookseller, Cambridge, Mass., to whom orders for it may be addressed.
Circulars giving information about the professional schools of the University, the Scientific School, and the Bussey Institution, may be obtained on application to J. W. HARRIS, Secretary, Cambridge, Mass.
GREEK AND LATIN TEXTS.
18MO, PAPER, 50 CTS. A VOL. ; Cloth, 75 CTS. A VOL.
This Series is intended to supply cheap and accurate pocket editions of the Classics, which shall be superior in mechanical execution to the small German editions now current in this country, and more convenient in form. The Texts have taken their place among scholars as valuable contributions to classical literature, and are admitted to be good examples of judicious and practical scholarship, and it is believed that there are no texts better adapted for general use. The volumes are handsomely printed in a good plain type, and on paper capable of receiving writing ink for notes.
