3. I was only a few minutes late for an
event. Can I still get
credit for that event?
The rules on this are very clear...
Even one minute late is too late. You must be there before the
event begins in order to receive credit. The cultural events
monitors are instructed that an event has started when a performer walks
out on the stage, a curtain rises, a lecturer walks to the podium (or an
individual introducing a lecturer), a film starts, a conductor walks out
on the stage, etc. They are given the authority to make the
decision as to when the event has started and they are also instructed
that at that time they should stop scanning people in to the event.
Please note: Any late arrivals or early dismissals will
not be accepted.
4. I spent some time in another city
(another country). How can
I receive credit?
Read the information regarding Submitting
Petitions Related to Travel Experiences. Be sure
when submitting a travel petition it is written up as one experience,
but be specific about the places you visited and things you did.
5. My organization wants to sponsor an
event and wants cultural events credit for that.
What is the process for getting credit?

6. Can I receive Cultural Event credit for my service in the Military?
Yes- students who have military
experience can petition for Cultural Event credit. A student will submit
Petition for their
experiences. The Cultural
Events Committee will decide on a case by case basis, the extent of the
student’s cultural experiences and how many credits will be awarded.
