There are special requirements for those who wish to take a travel course.

  1. Students must be in good academic and disciplinary standing at the time of registration to participate in a January Term travel course. This screening will take place the week after travel class registration. A deposit of 50% of the course fee must be paid to the Business Office in order to register online. Students deemed ineligible through the screening process will have their deposits refunded.
  2. All travel courses have pre-registration informational meetings announced online and on posters around campus. Almost all travel courses require attendance at these meetings and the instructor's signature prior to registration.
  3. Almost all travel courses will have at least two meetings after registration. Most of these meeting times are already scheduled in the catalog. Attendance at these meetings is mandatory.
  4. Visiting students from colleges other than Saint Mary’s may be exempted from the requirement of attending mandatory meetings with the permission of the instructor and the Director of the January Term.
  5. Pass/Fail grading is not an option for any travel course.
  6. Freshmen are not eligible for international travel courses.
  7. If a course you are interested in is an international travel course and you do not have a passport, begin the passport process as soon as you are enrolled in the class. If you are not a U.S. citizen, you may also need an additional travel Visa.  If you have a passport, it must be valid through April of 2014.
  8. You are required to complete payment by Friday, November 8th.
  9. In addition, you also need to turn in your completed travel packet to your instructor by Friday, November 8th. Airline tickets will not be released to the student until you have both paid in full and turned in your travel packet.  Noncompliance by a student on these matters will result in dismissal from the course.
  10. It is Jan Term’s policy that frequent flyer miles are not allowed, nor are travel date changes.
