    versity and (b) students registering for 5 or less semestral
    University credits shall hereafter not be required to pay the
    A. S. U. N. semestral student fee.  They have the privilege
    of paying this fee and securing the benefits which accrue to
    it if they so desire.

2.  Any student due to pay non-resident tuition who registers for
    7 or less credit hours in any one semester will be charged as
    non-resident tuition $10 for each credit hour in which he
    registers in lieu of the flat $75 non-resident charge per
    semester.  In this special case 1/2 of the non-resident tu-
    ition charged will be rebated if the student withdraws from
    the University within the first 3 weeks of the semester for
    which the student is registering.  No rebate on this special
    tuition charge will be made if the student withdraws any
    time after the first 3 weeks of the semester.

3.  The phrase "just prior to their matriculation" in the first
    paragraph under II under the heading Tuition on page 94 of
    the current catalog was changed to read, "just prior to the
    opening date of the semester in which the student matricu-
    lates", etc.
