Scholar Adventurers Series (SAS) program registration will begin on Thursday, Februrary 15, 2018 at 12:01 a.m. (for graduating students) and Friday, Februrary 16, 2018 at 12:01 a.m. (for everyone else). To register, go to the CHP website at http://illinois.edu/calendar/list/4956, select the event you want to register for, then log in with your net-id and Active Directory password and add your name to the reservations list. See this link for a video tutorial of the sign-up process.
For each SAS you will receive an e-mail reminder a few days in advance. If the SAS involves food, or is very well-registered, please be sure to carefully read the instructions to save your place – and you will be asked to respond.
If your plans change and you are unable to come to a program you have already registered to attend, PLEASE notify us so that we will know. We may contact someone else on the waiting list and so we know how much food to order.
Some programs are limited in number due to the room size. If your entry is past the number allowed, you may still be added to the list, since we may have several cancellations. Watch your e-mail – even on the day of the program – to see if you are notified to come.
If the number of students interested in attending a program greatly exceeds the space allowed, we may move the SAS to another University site. You will be notified by e-mail in the reminder notice. (This excludes tours, which will not be changed.)
You may sign up for more than one SAS per semester, but repeat attendance in any SAS does not earn you additional co-curricular credit, and may prevent another student from attending.
