University of Virginia Library


To be admitted into the University, the student must be sixteen
years of age; but the Faculty are authorized to dispense with this
requisition in the case of application for admission by two brothers,
one of whom is under the age of sixteen.

If the applicant for admission has been a student at any other
incorporated seminary, he cannot be received, but on producing a
certificate from such seminary, or other satisfactory evidence to the
Faculty, with respect to his general good conduct.

Every student is free to attend the schools of his choice, and no
other than he chooses; with the condition that he shall attend at
least three Professors, unless he has the written authority of his
parent or guardian, or the Faculty shall for good cause shown
allow him to attend less than three. But should he be twenty-one
years of age, or more, he is exempt from this condition as to the
number of his schools.

Before a student matriculates, he is furnished with a copy of the
laws, which he is required to read. On matriculating, he signs a
written declaration, that he will conform to those laws, and, if he
be a resident student, that he has deposited with the Patron all
the funds in his possession.
