The Admissions series (8 linear feet) consists of admission records and applications for advanced standing. An admission form was generated for each student that applied to the university. The forms most relevant for genealogical research are those dated 1856-1871, as they include parent's name, home address and occasionally the age of the student. The application for advanced standing indicates the institutions previously attended by the student. The researcher should note that there are related outsize volumes described at the end of the finding aid.
