On campuses where a commuter/day student option is offered, commuter students will be responsible for the same Code of Conduct as the residential students regarding overall camp policies. In addition, commuters will be held responsible for arriving at camp each day at the appointed time and place. Students will not be admitted late to class. Commuter students are expected to be in class each day and no exceptions will be made for lateness or absence. Students dismissed from the camp/workshop for any breach of policy will not be refunded any portion of money paid. The commuter day is from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Commuter students will be required to arrive no later than 8:45 a.m. each morning. Depending on the nature of the camp/workshop there may be some requirement to attend evening activities. A schedule, possibly subject to change, will be given to each student at orientation. The camp/workshops depend on collaborative learning experiences and are intended to be “serious fun” for students serious about trying new things and improving their craft.
