​Registration & Fees:

  • Registration for IMPACT will run until the end of June 2020.

  • There is no cost for students to attend the IMPACT program. You must be signed up for Leadership Safari to be eligible for IMPACT.  

  • While there is no fee to attend IMPACT, there is a registration fee of $125 to attend Leadership Safari. There are two options available for qualified students to help completely cover or subsidize the $125 registration fee.

    • Students with demonstrated financial need may request a fee waiver.  If a student has a Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) of between $0 and $5,000 per year, as determined by the FAFSA, they are eligible for a fee waiver. Please refer to this page to apply for the fee waiver program. 

    • Partial fee waivers will subsidize conference fees, bringing the cost of registration down to $50.  Students with an Expected Family Contribution of $5,001 to $10,000, as determined by FAFSA, are eligible.  This financial support is made possible in large part to the generosity of generous alumni who give back to this programPlease refer to this page to apply for the fee waiver program.

  • Alcohol and other illegal substances are strictly prohibited. Failure to comply with the policies and rules established for IMPACT will result in immediate dismissal from the program, and you will be required to reimburse the program for breach of contract.  In addition, you will be sent to the Office of Student Conduct for possible sanctions.
