lion of less than nine units is permitted only after a student has been admitted to candidacy. Rosemead does not admit part-time students to its degree programs. A unit of credit is generally considered to consist of one class hour (50 minutes) a week for a semester. In physical education activities, laboratory sessions and in a few other instances, a unit of credit may involve more than one class period a week. Generally an undergraduate student is limited to 17 units of classroom work a semester. After the first semester a student with a grade point average of 3.0 may petition the Registrar's office to carry more than 17 units. In no case will a student be permitted to carry more than 20 units each semester. A total of six (6) units, may be taken by a student in independent study, arranged and correspon­ dence courses during the student's degree program. Special Note: Full-time enrollment (completing 12 units each semester) is required of the following under­ graduate students: internationals, veterans receiving full benefits, students receiving social security benefits, and all students receiving financial aid ofany kind. When drop­ ping classes, students must be aware that they are required to complete 12 units ofcredit.

PRE-PROFESSIONAL COURSES Many leading educators in the professional fields recognize that a liberal arts curriculum provides the most suitable undergraduate preparation. The satisfac­ tory completion of the courses required of all students during their first two years in attendance at Biola University provides much of the necessary background.

There are certain basic courses in natural science, language and social science which are required by most profes­ sional schools. To be sure that the proper courses are selected, the student should seek information from the professional school of his choice.
