Participants are expected to attend all five sessions in order to receive a notice of completion.

We understand that life and work happen and, as such, participants are permitted to miss one session. A participant who misses a weekend session must consult with their assigned mentor and group members. The participant will be required to complete work they have missed. Program costs will not be prorated. 

A participant who misses two or more sessions will be ineligible to receive a notice of completion. The participant will have the option to continue to attend and audit any remaining weekend sessions, or to withdraw from the program.
