Conditions governing the granting of permission include the following:

  2. The course desired must be unavailable at the student's home institution.
  3. Visiting students are normally limited to one undergraduate course a semester at the host institution except where the second course is a laboratory required to accompany the first course or the second course is a one hour course in basic military science.
