Prepaid charges for room and board, in the event of withdrawal, will be refunded on the basis of the actual portion of such unusued amounts. All refunds must be claimed by application to the Business Office, the date of which determines the refund period. STUDENT EMPLOYMENT The College maintains an Employment Office for the benefit of students needing part-time work to defray expenses. While this Office does not guar­ antee employment, an effort is made to place every needy student. Students who need to work while going to college should plan to arrive several days before registration in order that they may secure the type of work which they desire. The student who finds it necessary to work for the entire amount of his living expenses should plan on extending the time required for his course of study. SCHOLARSHIPS To the extent that scholarships bequests and other funds permit, Biola College gives financial encouragement to promising and worthy students. Two principal aims are the basis for all awards: (1) to encourage scholarly endeavor by gifted students, and (2) to aid worthy students who are dependent chiefly upon their own efforts to secure a college education or could not attend college without such assistance. All awards are made for a period of one year only, but may be renewed on the basis of satisfactory work. It should be clearly understood that a student's failure to maintain satisfactory scholastic standing during any semester will be sufficient cause for the discontinuance of his award. Biola College is in agreement with the following recommendation of the Association of College Admissions Counselors: "We solicit the co-operation of parents and secondary school officers in discouraging persons who do not need financial aid from competing with needy students for the use of college scholarship funds. To be elected an honor scholar is a rightful ambition of any student irrespective of financial status, but to expect financial consideration when such is not needed is to request a college to take from some needy student his opportunity to attend college." Biola College is in agreement with this policy with respect to all forms of financial assistance. If a student can attend college without aid from the college, he should neither request nor accept such aid and thereby prevent some needy student from receiving help who otherwise could not attend. Application for all scholarships should be made to the Dean of Students. Blanks for this purpose will be furnished upon request by the Office of the Dean of Students. 24
