Credits

This is an intensive course. Hampshire College recommends the equivalent of 4 academic credits for the completion of a full course. Students are strongly encouraged to check with their home institutions about the number of accepted transfer credits. Upon completion of the program, students may request a Hampshire College transcript.

Residency Requirement

Because of the intensive nature of the program, all participants are strongly recommended to reside on campus for the duration of the course. The program fees above (tuition + housing) include full residency, course materials, and trip fees. Students who live locally and do not require residency should contact icp@hampshire.edu after submitting their applications.

Health Insurance

Please note that the Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires all students to carry health insurance. Upon acceptance to the Institute for Curatorial Practice Summer Academic Program, you will be asked to provide proof of insurance or required to purchase temporary coverage that could increase the overall program cost.
