Because our Summer plans have been so drastically altered by the COVID-19 Pandemic, we will not be having an on-campus Summer Component this year. We will have an online Summer Component instead.
Since this is a major change, we figure that some students who were coming this summer won’t want to participate and some who thought they couldn’t participate in an on-campus experience might wish to participate online. sp we are doing a new summer survey.
You might have questions:
Q: I did the old summer survey back in January or February, do I need to do the new one?
A: Yes. The new summer survey asks new questions geared toward online course delivery. We need that information.
Q: I said I was not coming this summer because I couldn’t commit to the on-campus requirements. Now that it is online, I’d like to participate. Can I participate even if I said I wasn’t coming before?
A: Yes, of course. We’d love for you to participate.
Q: I said I was coming this summer on the old survey, but since it’s gonna be online I’m not really interested, can I skip this summer?
A: Read the info here before you make a decision. The short answer is that you don’t have to do the summer component, but there are consequences for not participating. For example, you will no longer be eligible for the UM Upward Bound scholarship if you don’t participate this summer.
Q: Do I really have to fill this out even if I know I’m not participating?
A: Only if you want your final stipend.
