Each student is required to work with his/her departmental advisor to enter into an Engaged Learning Requirement Contract no later than the end of the drop/add period in the semester prior to their graduating semester and must complete the contract no later than the last day of classes the semester prior to their graduating semester. This contract will detail the specific activities to be undertaken and corresponding deliverables to be produced during the experience. Engaged Learning Experiences may be associated with a travel course, independent study, internship, designated Engaged Learning course, or an independent engaged learning experience, but the timely completion of an Engaged Learning Requirement Contract is required.
