Meetings and Conferences for 2011-20012

Remember to submit a travel request form and registration form to the meeting!
  • Besides air transportation and lodging, MBRS-RISE provides for meals ($32/day), incidental costs ($5/day after the first 24 hours), and ground transportation (variable) for each complete day (7 a.m. - 6 p.m.) you are away from home. Partial travel day amounts are prorated.

  • Travel to meetings during the summer or between quarters is preferred to travel during an academic quarter. There is an opportunity cost: if you are traveling, you are not on campus keeping up with your classes. In any event, you are responsible for high academic achievement. Because of the time demands, travel during an academic quarter by any student with less than a GPA of 3.0 is discouraged.

  • The MBRS-RISE program office will, on request, contact your instructors to let them know you will miss some classes during the period of your trip. This information is also collected on your MBRS Travel Request Form. The letters will be generated and distributed to your instructors two weeks before you travel.

Below is the listed time table for travel arrangements . Plase follow the deadlines to avoid late fees.
