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

and Sciences will doubtless affect transfers from other colleges. Students who had been attracted to Cornell were hitherto able to make the change to the College of Arts and Sciences and devote themselves to special fields unhampered by arrears of required work.

Since June, 1904, the Registrar has had charge of all credentials presented by applicants coming from other institutions and this system has given uniformity of action on similar certificates when the applicants enter different courses at this University.

Drill during 1904-05 was required only of freshmen but from 1905–06 and 1906-07 sophomores must take three actual hours of physical training:

In the following lists should properly be included a number of cases of special students who, coming from other colleges, would have been eligible for admission to advanced standing. Such students, however, preferred to be admitted as specials. Some of these later changed to a regular course but are not included in these tables.

The number of students admitted to advanced standing as candidates for the first degree during the past twenty years is, as nearly as may be ascertained, as follows:

In 1888-89 one student was admitted to the Course in Chemistry and one to the Course in Pharmacy. Prior to 1897 four students were admitted to the Medical Preparatory Course and 50 as optional students. These courses have been abolished.

The distribution of students admitted to advanced standing among the 384 institutions from which such applicants have come during the last twenty years, is indicated in the following table. This table does not include students entering the Medical College who may have been in other colleges and universities. Students entering the College of Law prior to 1896-97 are also not included.
