Credit Slips Afoiv Af
Registration for summer and fall terms, scheduled for May 12, 13. and 14, will
have a new twist, Dr. Floyd W. Hoover, acting director of registration and records,
announced Thursday.
The new detail in the registration process requires students to pick up grade
credit slips from the office of registration and records, Room B-1, Administration
hall, before they will be admitted to the assignment committee.
. . The slips, according to Dr. Hoover, show a student's weighted grade average and
his cumulative hours of credit on record as of Jan. 28. Students will be admitted to the
assignment committee on the basis of credit hours shown on these slios.
No student will be admitted
without a slip, Dr. Hoover em
phasized. Ag students may obtain their
grade-credit slips from the of
fice of Dr. Ephriam Hixson, as
sociate director of resident in
struction, Room 206, Agricul
tural hall. s
Dr. Hoover, in announcing
registration, reminded students
to contact their advisers before
May 12 to complete their work
sheets. Appointments should be
completed before registration

Hyson's office.
The grade-credit slip, the only
important new feature in this
swing's registrationj process,, is ,
one of" te" perennial changes
designed to prevent students
from "beating the system."
Until last spring's registration,
registration numbers were oo
tained prior to drawing cards.
Students were then admitted to
the assignment committee in or
der of their numbers. Upper
classmen drew numbers before
underclassmen, thereby giving
students with greater number of
hours first chance at drawing
registration cards.
The system, although effective
at the outset was not infallible.
By last spring the number of
registrants who had discovered
ways to beat the system was
large enough to warrant a com
plete revision of the registration
admittance process.
The result was similar to the
present system, whereby stu
dents are admitted to the as
signment committee on the basis
of number of credit hours.
Grade-credit slips, however,
were on file at the assignment
committee and were obtained by
students at the time of registra
tion. This spring's process, there
fore, provides a slight change in
procedure. Last year, Dr. Hoo
ver guessed that the system be
gun then would be effective for
