Pre-Registration for any of the institutes is required, and may be accomplished online.

Pre-Registration deadline is May 30 for June session (AP Computer Science Principles) and June 17 for the July sessions.

You will need to bring you own linens (XL twin or double sheets, pillowcase, towel & washcloth). Parking at the dorm is included. Blocker Building, where the institutes are held, is close enough to walk, but you may park in the Northside Garage for an extra fee (see Parking Information below). If you indicate in your registration that you desire on-campus housing, reservations will be made for you for 4 nights, beginning the night before the institute begins, through the night before the last day of the institue. A full breakfast may be purchased in the dining room at Tradition. Pastries, coffee, and juice are available each morning in Blocker.
