Acknowledgment of Important Policies
READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY BEFORE SUBMITTING YOUR ELECTRONIC SIGNATURE
I understand that to be eligible for JBS, I must meet the following minimum requirements:
- be in good academic and judicial standing (not on probation) at the time of the application and program start date
have completed a minimum of two semesters of study at Brandeis at the time of the program start date
- Meet the program specific prerequisites, as applicable
- Submit a completed JBS Application by the published deadline
I authorize the Office of Study Abroad to check my academic, Community Living and judicial records in determining my eligibility for JBS and agree to notify the Office of Study Abroad if I should fail to remain in good standing or suffer circumstances that might compromise my success in JBS.
Should I be approved to participate in JBS, I understand that I will be required to inform Brandeis of my intent to enroll within ten days of acceptance through the submission of the Notification Form (Form JNF). I understand that students accepted to a summer JBS will additionally be required to submit a $500 deposit. After acceptance I understand that I may also be required to submit a number of pre-departure forms.
I understand that although Brandeis University will attempt to maintain its programs as described in its publications, Brandeis reserves the right to terminate or alter a program at any time and for any reason, with or without notice.
Brandeis Semesters, Study Abroad, and JBS Students entering as first years are required to complete a minimum of seven full-time semesters from Brandeis fall/spring semesters, approved fall/spring Study Abroad programs or approved Justice Brandeis Semester programs. At most one of these seven semesters may be a Study Abroad Semester or a summer Justice Brandeis Semester.
For students wishing to complete two semesters of study abroad, or two summer Justice Brandeis Semesters, or one semester of each, the minimum number of semesters becomes eight full-time. This policy does not apply to the fall or spring.
I understand this above policy and how it relates to my academic plan at Brandeis.
As an applicant to JBS, I hereby affirm that the information contained in this application is correct to the best of my knowledge. I understand the conditions outlined in this statement.
