High school seniors are to be admitted as students in Tarkio College at the beginning of the second semester. High school seniors must have completed three and one-half years of high school or earned 14 high school units. A full schedule of courses will be chosen by the students and they will be matriculated as full-fledged freshmen. This program is established to accelerate college and high school education to permit the enrollment of students in college prior to selective service age so that their college training will serve as a background for more effective service to their country in the armed services when they are called.
