By a new regulation of the Committee on Admission, students transferring to the College and the Engineering School from other colleges and universities, will be admitted only to the freshman and sophomore classes at Harvard. The practice has been to admit men by transfer with any classification except that of Senior.
The change in policy means that the transfer student will remain at Harvard three years before receiving his degree. Exceptions will be made in the case of particularly brilliant men who demonstrate their ability to complete their course of study in two years. The new measure has been taken chiefly to preserve for the students involved the unity of the Harvard three-year tutorial system.
