Arrival and registration is the first listed date of a session. For example, for the second middle school debate session from July 6-11, the arrival date is July 6.
Each program runs consecutively for the dates of the program. This includes weekend days. For example, the middle school debate session from July 6-11, the academic program days are July 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. The final date is a departure date for residents only. Please review the Departure Information for more detail.
Arrival and registration is from 12:00-2:00 PM for ALL Claremont Summer sessions. Please do not arrive before that time; facilities are not yet available. Please have lunch before arriving on campus. The first meal for each session is dinner; it is available to commuter and residential students and summer debate and leadership communication staff.
IMPORTANT DEPARTURE INFORMATION! The first listed date is the arrival date and the last listed program date is the final departure day. There is limited academic and orientation programming on the arrival day and NO instruction on the final day, the last listed program date. In fact, the last listed date for a session is a secondary departure day. Academic programming ends on the second to last date of a program and the PRIMARY DEPARTURE TIME is that evening.
For example, for the second middle school debate program from July 6-11, arrival is July 6, 12:00-2:00 PM and the primary departure is July 10, 5:00-8:50 PM. All commuter students officially check-out at this time. There are a few residential students unable to depart on the second to last date, usually due to airline schedules. Those students are welcome to stay until the following morning. Final Departure for any remaining student is by 10:00 AM on the last listed date, in this case, July 11.
If a student needs to stay until the last listed date for a session, please contact John Meany, firstname.lastname@example.org, at least 1 week prior to the departure date.
