Sec. 3. The board of trustees are further instructed to adopt such rules for the admission of ministers' sons, candidates for the ministry, young men afflicted with bodily infirmity, and students preparing themselves for the purpose of teaching as are adopted by other colleges throughout the state; but all students in the normal department shall receive free tuition in this department: Provided, they agree in writing to teach for one year after leaving the University—but shall pay full tuition in all other departments, and all other students shall be required to give their notes with the understanding that should they become able they shall pay the balance due the University at the time of their graduation in full: Provided, however, that no young man of good moral character shall be denied admission because of his inability to pay cash or give a good note.
