The University Events Calendar is a searchable version. You can search the calendar by date or event type in order to pull up a list of events specific to your criteria.

Attendance Policy and Guidelines for Credit:

  1. To receive credit for attending an in-person event, students must have their Winthrop ID cards scanned before and after the event. Scanning will be done by the Cultural Event monitors at the entrance to the event area. Students who lose or misplace their IDs can ask the monitors for an attendance slip prior to the start of the event. Once the event begins, no attendance slips will be distributed.

  2. To receive credit for attending a live virtual event, students must register for the event with their Winthrop e-mail addresses and enable their webcams during the event, remaining in camera view as active participants (note: students should not drive or operate heavy machinery while watching a virtual event). Registration for online events is available through the Cultural Events calendar. Students who dial in will not be eligible for credit.

  3. Students must be on time and remain in attendance for the entire event. Arriving late to an event or leaving early can be potentially disruptive to the program. Students who arrive late or leave early, including those who are dismissed, will not receive credit. This applies to both in-person and virtual events.

  4. Students will receive only 1 credit for attending an event unless otherwise stated on the Cultural Events calendar. Some events are recurring; however, students may not receive additional credit for attending the same event more than once.

  5. Students may not earn more than half of their total number of required credits from a single event (e.g., a trip, conference, etc.).

  6. The Cultural Events calendar is updated on a regular basis. Events are subject to change or cancellation. Occasionally, events must be rescheduled due to unforeseen circumstances. If an event is canceled or rescheduled, the calendar will be updated accordingly. No credit will be given for an event that does not take place.

  7. Students must arrive early in order to be guaranteed admittance to an event. If limited seating or space is available, admittance will be on a first-come-first-served basis. Students who are turned away will not receive credit for the event.

  8. Students may earn up to 10 credit (in total) for performing 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 performers are to be provided by the CVPA.) However, students are highly encouraged to earn credit for events in which they are not performing.

  9. Students who are new to classical music performances are encouraged to review the Welcome Guide for Classical Concerts (PDF - 62.0K) prior to attending a concert or recital.

  10. 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.
