Students entering the CHP in Fa18 must participate in at least eight Scholar Adventurers Series (SAS) programs prior to graduation (approximately one per semester). For students who entered prior to Fa18, participation in four SAS programs is required.

A student may sign up for more than one SAS per semester, however, repeat attendance in the same SAS does not earn additional credit.

If you need to cancel a registration, please delete your submission using the link in the confirmation email that was sent upon submission of your registration, and contact the CHP at Doing so may allow another student the opportunity to attend and complete a cocurricular requirement.

*The CHP is offering two Apple Tasting Labs for the Fa18 semester. Students should register for only one.
