Attendance Policy and Guidelines for Credit:

  1. Students will receive only one (1) credit for attending an on-campus Cultural Event, unless otherwise stated.
  2. Credit for events will be given by electronically scanning a student's Winthrop ID card at both the beginning and end of an event. It is the student's responsibility to have with them a Winthrop ID at the event. Monitors will check the picture on the ID to make sure that the student presents his or her own ID.
  3. No event can be attended more than once for cultural event credit.
  4. Only one ID will be scanned or one slip collected per student.
  5. Students must arrive early to guarantee admittance. In the event of limited seating or space, admittance will be on a first come, first served basis. Students turned away will not receive credit for that event.
  6. Once the event begins, no IDs will be scanned or slips passed out - no exceptions.
  7. When the event is over, scanning of IDs and/or collection of slips will be done.
  8. Occasionally, an event must be canceled or rescheduled due to unavoidable circumstances. Every attempt will be made to notify students of any cancellations. If an event is canceled, details regarding the event will be removed from the Cultural Events calendar. (No credit will be given for an event that does not take place.) If an event is rescheduled, the calendar will be updated to reflect the new time, date, and location of the event.
  9. Once the cultural event begins, NO electronic devices may be used at any time during the Cultural Event. Any student caught using his or her electronic devices are subject to being removed from the event and not given credit for attending. 
  10. The event details (e.g., time, date, and location) listed on the Cultural Events calendar are subject to change. Please check the calendar often, as information may be updated daily.
  11. Students may receive up to ten (10) credits [in total] for participating in Cultural Events sponsored by the College of Visual and Performing Arts (CVPA). These include, but are not limited to: theatre productions, dance performances, recitals, and art exhibitions.
  12. Students are encouraged to earn some Cultural Event credit through events in which they are not participating. Students may not earn more than one half of the total required cultural event credit through a single event (e.g. trip abroad, conference).
