The accompanying table shows the attendance in each course since the opening of the University in 1868. The only degree conferred in the College of Arts and Sciences is Bachelor of Arts. The Course in Arts for 1905-1906 was an elective one except for the required work in drill and gymnasium The former courses in Arts, Philosophy, Science, and Letters are now all under the jurisdiction of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, and the total is given in the last eight columns. Previous to 1897 optional and special students were separately tabulated but now these are distributed as far as possible among the groups to which they belong.

The attendance for the year is the largest in the history of tlie University and the increase in the number of regular students this year is 143. Special attention is called to the fact that the above table includes winter and summer course students only as separately tabulated.

ADMISSION FROM OTHER COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES

By direction of the University Faculty the credentials of students entering from other colleges and universities have been from 1896 to 1904 adjusted by the secretary of the Faculty concerned, except for entrance to the College of Arts and Sciences. The Registrar assumed in 1896 the work of adjusting such credentials for admission to Arts, and the elective system, begun in 1897, greatly facilitated passage from other institutions to Cornell by reducing to a minimum the specific subjects required here for the A.B. degree. The restrictions as to choice of studies recently adopted by the Faculty of Arts
