After acceptance, you commit to fully participate.
What does this mean?

Arrive on campus (or at your seminar location) during scheduled check-in times.
Attend all class sessions, class field trips, and mandatory college-wide activities. Please note that one of the advantages of an immersive experience is that faculty can adapt based on student interests or unexpected opportunities--class activities are likely to be added at short notice even if they were not on the syllabus on the first day, and these will be still be mandatory for you to attend.
Hold no job, full or part-time, and not travel outside of required class activities during the program.
Cannot be an RA or RCC or hold any positions related to New Student Orientation (conflicts with required training schedules); any application for dorm staff positions must be disclosed on the commitment form.

Follow the Fundamental Standard and Honor Code.
Admission to the program may be revoked at any point if a student is found to be ineligible or in violation of the Fundamental Standard or Honor Code.
