The Programs Office staff is already hard at work planning the high caliber of Legacy and Golden events you have come to expect. Additionally, we plan to engage more Fellows to work closely with Residents to produce a greater variety of events throughout the year that align with your interests.
We are also pleased to re-launch the International Leaders Program, a workshop series designed to supplement your academic and professional training with global leadership skills informed by the diverse cultures and experiences of our greater community. Past workshop themes include Financial Literacy, Resume & Interview Development, Brand Management, Diversity & Inclusion, and Networking.
We encourage you to apply for one of the fellowships offered. Fellowships provide leadership development opportunities and a stipend, and include Program Fellows, Resident Fellows and Peer Counselor Fellows.
No. They are two separate processes requiring two separate applications. If you are only interested in staying at I-House for all or part of the summer, fill out the Summer Extension Form by March 31st. If you are interested in living at I-House during the 2020-21 academic year or Fall 2020 semester, fill out the Readmission Application by March 13th. If you are interested in both, submit both forms by their respective deadlines.
If you miss the March 31st deadline, you risk losing your room to a new resident member. If you extend and then leave before that date, you will be subject to the cancellation policy. If you decide only to extend for a short time and then request to extend further, it is possible that we will be unable to approve your request.
To avoid paying for your room during an absence in the summer you must completely vacate your room for a minimum of 40 days making your room available to someone else. While we make every effort to assign a resident to their room choice upon returning after the 40-day minimum, we cannot guarantee availability. If you will be gone less than 40 days, you can keep your belongings in your room and you must pay all mandatory charges.
If you extend your membership through the end of the summer session and your readmission application is approved, you do NOT have to move out. If you extend for the entire summer session until August 14 and your readmission application has been approved, we will automatically extend your membership and your fall semester will begin on August 14.
In order to receive priority over new applicants you need to submit the readmission application by March 13th. If your readmission application is incomplete you have until July 15th to complete it and verify eligibility. All readmission applications received after March 13th will be considered equally with new applicants and there is no guarantee of admission and no priority in room selection.
If you selected a different room for next year and will be staying all summer, please contact the Admissions Office to arrange a move date as soon as the new room is available. If you are leaving for the summer, you will move into your new room upon your return.
If you wish to remain on the Columbia Residential contract it is not necessary for you to complete I-House’s Summer Extension Form or Readmission Application. You need to follow the process outlined by Columbia Residential. If you wish to switch to a direct agreement with I-House, you need to submit I-House’s Summer Extension Form or Readmission Application and inform Columbia Residentialof your intentions. If you are switching to a direct agreement you will need to change to a different room.
If your readmission application is approved you will need to confirm your intentions by August 1 for those who stay during the summer and depart by August 14th. A penalty applies for notifications received after the applicable date.
Residents who wish to stay in their current room and submit the readmission application by the March 13 deadline will be able to keep the same room. All those who wish to select a different room will be able to do so after March 25 in the order that applications are received. The Admissions Office will send out detailed information to those who wish to select a different room.
