Success in the intensive FCI program depends on active participation and immersion in the language learning experience. For this reason, we have a formal process for requesting emergency absence. We also require each student to sign a Language Pledge.
Request for emergency absence
Because of the intensity of the FCI program, committed participation is crucial. Permission for any absence from any scheduled events must be requested in writing and submitted to the director of the institute at least one week in advance.
These absences are granted only for extraordinary circumstances such as health or family emergencies. If necessary, students will be granted a maximum of one absence for personal reasons.
All students within this program are also expected to adhere to Indiana University policies.IU Code of Students Rights, Responsibilities + Conduct Residential Programs + Services Housing Regulations
