Please be aware that, when you are making your flight reservations, participants in the JFRC summer program are expected to arrive at the JFRC on Saturday morning: May 19th for Summer Session I or June 30th for Summer Session II [an exception is made for students enrolled in an inter-session course]. Students are required to depart on Friday, June 22nd, if only doing Session I; otherwise, all students must leave by July 27th.
There are no school-sponsored student group flights during the summer; all students must book their own round-trip tickets and get themselves to the JFRC campus. Students will reside in double rooms on campus while enrolled in the program. Administrative and student life support will be provided by JFRC staff.
Students enrolling for both JFRC Summer Sessions will be allowed to remain on campus over the interval between sessions if they are not enrolling in either of the inter-session courses.
Students must select two courses [six (6) semester hours] from the scheduled offerings in each session for which they plan to enroll. Courses may be subject to cancellation if enrollment is low.
