Attendance Policy and Guidelines for Credit:

  1. To receive credit for attending an in-person event, students must sign in and out of the event with their student ID number. Cultural Event monitors will electronically scan student ID cards outside the event area before and after the event. Students are responsible for bringing their Winthrop ID cards to the event and remembering to sign in and out. Students who lose or misplace their Winthrop ID cards and would like to receive credit for attending the event must ask the Cultural Event monitor for an attendance slip prior to the start of the event. Once the event begins, students will not be allowed to sign in and no attendance slips will be distributed - no exceptions.
  2. To receive credit for attending a virtual event, students must register in advance with their Winthrop e-mail address and enable their webcams during the event. Students who call in will not receive credit. Registration for all events is available through the Cultural Events calendar.
  3. Students must be on time and stay for the entire event. Arriving late or leaving early can be distracting to speakers/performers and audience members alike. Students who arrive late or leave early - including those who are dismissed for misconduct - will not receive credit for their attendance. This applies for both in-person and virtual events.
  4. Students who are new to classical music performances may review the Welcome Guide to Classical Concerts (PDF - 62.0K) prior to attendending a concert or recital.
  5. Once an event begins, no personal electronic devices may be used at any time during the program. Any student caught using personal electronic devices will be subject to removal from the event and will not be given credit for their attendance.
  6. Only one ID will be scanned or one slip collected per student.
  7. Students must arrive early in order to be guaranteed 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.
  8. When the event is over, scanning of IDs and/or collection of slips will be done.
  9. Occasionally, an event must be cancelled or rescheduled due to unavoidable circumstances. Every attempt will be made to notify students of any cancellations. If an event is cancelled, 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.
  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 will receive only one (1) credit for attending a Cultural Event unless otherwise stated on the Cultural Events calendar.
  12. Students will not receive additional credit for attending the same event more than once.
  13. Students may receive up to 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, concerts and recitals, and art exhibitions. (Lists of participating students are to be provided by the College.) However, students are highly encouraged to earn credit for events in which they are not participating.
  14. Students may not earn more than half of their total number of required Cultural Event credits through a single event (e.g., a trip, conference, etc.).
