High School Honors and Research Internship in Science & Engineering
Because dorm life is an important aspect of the college experience helping you form closer bonds with other students, we encourage you to live on campus. However, students in the High School Honors and Research Internship in Science & Engineering (RISE) programs do have the option of commuting to campus each day.
If you choose to commute, you are still responsible for the program fee ($450), and we expect your full participation in all planned program activities. Commuting students are also able to put convenience points on their Terrier Cards in order to purchase food at the George Sherman Union or join their friends for meals in the Warren Towers dining room.
Supplemental information required from commuting students:
- Students residing at their home during the program must submit a letter from their parents or guardians stating this fact.
- Students staying with a relative for the duration of the program need to submit the following permission letters:
- A letter from your parent(s) or guardian(s) giving you permission to stay with your relatives.
- A letter from your relative(s) stating their names, relationship to you, address, and emergency phone number.
- A further statement from your relative(s) acknowledging that they will be at their address during the entire six weeks of the program, and that they accept responsibility for you during that time.
There is no option to commute in the Summer Challenge Program. Students must reside on campus.
The Summer Preview program is open to commuters and residential students. Residential students must be at least 14 years of age to live on campus. Lunch is provided for both residential and commuter students in the Warren Towers dining hall. Commuter students are invited to attend evening activities.
