These courses are scheduled at times and places most convenient to the majority of the staff and students participating. If circumstances preclude scheduling of basic courses to accommodate students from one College at a time and place convenient to the other two institutions, the course is repeated at a different time and place to accommodate those students who would otherwise be excluded. In the case of elective courses, however, i t is permissible for students from only two Colleges to participate. The respective Board s of Studies are responsible for planning inter-collegiate courses in their particular subject field . The Central Office serves as a coordinating agency in setting the time, arranging for the necessary accommodations and informing all concerned of when and where the course will be offered. Notice of any inter-collegiate courses which a Boar d of Studies proposes to offer during the next academic year must be given to the Central Office by the end of May to enable necessary arrangements to be made and advance information to be disseminated. Since their inception, the variety of subjects and the number of students participating in inter collegiate courses have increased significantly each year. The following table is a complete listing of the inter-collegiate courses for which the Central Office has been requested to make arrangements during the current academic year.
