Residency Session Format

What are the residency weekend dates?

Residency Session dates are determined by the course that you are registered for. It is very important that you make note of the class you registered for, as well as the designated residency weekend for that course as each course will only meet one weekend for the duration of the semester.

Will I attend residency sessions for the same amount of time?

Even though we will only be meeting one weekend per semester, we will have the same number of contact hours with you. This will enable the instructors to make residency weekends much more valuable. This change will allow us to have meaningful projects on residency weekends.

How do I know which residency I go to?

You can view your semester schedule in your self-service portal in your Student Profile. Your schedule details will indicate the date and location of your residency weekend.

Are all three days mandatory?

Yes, all three days are mandatory and requests to arrive late or leave early will not be approved. Should you not be in attendance for the full session you will be counted absent for the entire session. Please plan travel accordingly!

Attendance policy

Attendance to each Executive Residency class session is mandatory. Students may make-up no more than one (1) residency session throughout the duration of their academic program. Missing a second residency will result in the student being dismissed from the University.

A missed session will result in the student attending a make-up session, and paying a $300 Residency Make-Up fee. In addition, the student may be asked for documentation from the program department providing an explanation as to why the schedule residency session was missed. Make-Up sessions must be completed prior to the end of the term. Noncompliance with this policy will result in dismissal from the executive program.

Make up sessions - where are they?

Make-up sessions for this semester (Spring 2020) will be held at our campus in Florence, KY (NKY Campus) and students will be charged a $300 make-up fee if a make-up residency is required. There will only be one (1) residency make up session offered each semester. Failure to attend the three-day make up session will receive a failing grade, may be dismissed from the Executive Program and may face termination in the SEVIS system.

What if I can't be there all days?

If you cannot be in attendance for all three days then you will be counted absent for the entire residency weekend and be required to attend the make-up residency and pay the $300 make-up fee.

When can I register for the next semester?

The Department of International Graduate Services will contact you via your UC student email as registration for the next term approaches. Please remember that you are required to register for (one) main class, (one) online class, and Applied Learning Practicum each semester in order to maintain your F1 status – late registration will not be accepted and can result in the termination of your student status. 

Once you register for a class you will want to make note of the residency weekend that your class is scheduled, as that is the only session for that class that will be scheduled for the semester. You will need to be sure to plan your travel accordingly to ensure that you are in attendance for the full residency session.

Registration is done on a first come, first serve basis. Once a course is full, there will not be additional seats added, as we cannot exceed classroom seating capacity; therefore, it is advised that you register for classes as much in advance as possible. As a reminder, students cannot register for future semesters until their current tuition balance is paid in full.
