IL Student Daily Schedule & Timelines

Daily Schedule During May

During May term, Intensive Learning classes meet at the instructor's discretion. Some classes meet for several hours each morning; some meet both mornings and afternoons; some meet only in the afternoon; yet others meet in the evening or on the weekend as well. IL students should not schedule other commitments until speaking with the instructor.

Many courses will take "day trips" that can require meeting before the sun comes up or returning to campus after midnight.  Some courses will have required meetings or travel on weekends.  Students need to read course descriptions carefully to find a class that matches their needs and interests.

We are not being flip when we say: "IL owns you during May term!" Students should keep schedules free of other obligations until the instructor specifies meeting times for the class.

Students should also anticipate several hours of homework and other course requirements each day. Remember: This is intensive learning, calling for immersion in the subject.

It may be prudent to postpone work and other commitments until after IL May term.

 

Timeline for May Term Registration

Students can pre-register in October for an IL class to be held the following May. Pre-registration for IL courses continues through spring term. However, please note:

  • IL travel courses have early deadlines for application and payment of fees.
  • Courses fill quickly. Students are encouraged to register early.
  • Students requesting permission to use an independent study or internship need to start that process early.

This schedule reflects general dates for IL events. The IL Director, the Registrar, and other college officials announce specific and additional dates during the academic year.  Consult the oficial college calendar on the Registrar's webpage.
