What is it?
The College is a new and important program of Masonic Education for members of the Scottish Rite.

How does it work?
There are four schools of the College: The School of Perfection, The School of Religion, The School of Philosophy and the School of Masonry.

The School of Perfection covers in-depth study of the Lodge or Perfection Degrees 4 - 11; The School of Religion provides the same learning opportunity for the four degrees of the Chapter of Rose Croix; The School of Philosphy studies the twelve Degrees of the Council of Kadosh; The School of Masonry provides study of the 31st and 32nd Consistory Degrees.

The Adepts of the College administer the College of the Consistory. Each is responsible for the school(s) he has completed.

Upon successful completion of the School of Perfection, the Brother becomes an Honorary Past Venerable Master. He also becomes one of the Adepts of the School of Perfection and is entitled to vote on the acceptance of papers, etc.

Upon successful completion of the School of Religion, the Brother becomes an Honorary Past Wise Master. He also becomes one of the Adepts of the School of Religion as well as the School of Perfection.

Upon successful completion of the School of Philosophy, the Brother becomes an Honorary Past Commander. He also becomes one of the Adepts of the School of Philosophy as well as the Schools of Perfection and Religion.

Upon successful completion of the School of Masonry, the Brother becomes an Honorary Past Master of the Consistory. He also becomes one of the Adepts of the College of Masonry as well as the Schools of Perfection, Religion and Philosophy.

How long will it take?
This is a major program. It will take a minimum of two (2) years to complete the school of Perfection, a minimum of one (1) year to complete the School of Religion and a minimum of two (2) years to complete the School of Philosophy. There is no time limit for the School of Masonry.
Awards
The Honorary Past Venerable Master, Past Wise Master, Past Commander and Past Master of Kadosh all receive the Jewel of that office to wear at Reunions and Scottish Rite Functions.
Meetings
Those in the College will meet four (4) times a year, for a Banquet, Festive Board and the presentation of papers. Since there are no dues, members will be asked to buy a ticket when they attend a Festive Board. Currently it is anticipated that tickets will cost $35.00 each. In addition to a major meal being served, we anticipate having a renowned Masonic scholar, from outside the Orient, brought in as a guest speaker. Attendance is encouraged but is not mandatory.
What do the students do?
Those who enroll in the college will be required to demonstrate knowledge of each Degree. In some cases this will be by a research paper, in other cases by an essay. There will be options available. The exact cirriculum is still being developed. It will not be easy, but it will not be unneccessarily difficult. The purpose is to obtain knowledge of Masonry, not "jump through hoops."

Present plans are to publish Transactions each year with selected papers written by the students.

The College will supply a list of basic reading materials, but students will have to find other resources on their own, although help will be available. Students will be responsible for the purchase of their own books and materials.
