Program authorization and PROCEDURES
Creating a New Pre-Collegiate Program or Camp
All pre-collegiate programs and camps must be authorized by the appropriate department chair/unit director and, if needed, the dean as well as the Pre-Collegiate Programs Office per the univeristy's Pre-Collegiate Programs policy 3.1 before program activities can occur. Please be sure to review Pre-Collegiate Programs policy 3.1 which applies to all Florida Atlantic University-operated or affiliated programs (FAU pre-collegiate programs) designed for individuals under 18 years of age who have not yet graduated from high school (“minor participants”), whether operated on or off campus, where the program participants are to be left in the care and supervision of Florida Atlantic University employees or volunteers.
FAU-operated or -affiliated means programs or activities the University operates or sponsors or in which program staff participate through their University roles with the approved use of University trademarks or facilities. The Florida Atlantic University Operating Standards for Pre-Collegiate Programs apply to all programs covered by this policy.
The policy applies year-round - it is not limited to programs conducted during the summer months. In addition, the policy covers the following items and more: Limitations, Exclusions, General Program Staffing Requirements, Program Staff Screening Requirements, Program Staff Training Requirements, Supervision Requirements, Medical Care, Releases And Waivers,Transportation, Insurance Coverage, Housing, Parking Services, Dining Services and other.
Furthermore, all Pre-Collegiate program directors/owners/operators must complete the Program Director’s Orientation Training prior to the start of their Pre-Collegiate program. Please note that if you are interested in starting a program/camp but still unsure, it's best to attend a training in case you do decide to go foward with your program/camp.
*Only authorized programs may be advertised and promoted.
