Participation Requirements

Participation Requirements

Mandatory Courses

The LEAD Scholars Program offers courses that fulfill both LEAD and SCU Core Curriculum requirements. Each student is required to take one 2-unit LEAD vocational exploration course. First-year students are required to take this course in their sophomore or junior year. Transfer students are also required to take this course in their sophomore or junior year, but can be granted permission to take it in their senior year. Those students who do not fulfill the participation requirement will have their priority registration suspended.

Program Participation

All first, second, third and fourth year students are also required to participate in one LEAD Scholars Program activities per quarter (3 per year) to maintain a connection to the program and continue their own personal and academic growth. Students can fulfill this requirement by attending or planning a LEAD event, or being a tour guide or panelist for a LEAD-sponsored tour for K-12 students. Please consult with the LEAD staff about other ways to fulfill the requirement. Those students who do not fulfill the participation requirement will have their priority registration suspended.

If you are studying abroad or are leaving campus for other reasons and would like to waive your participation requirement for the quarter, please also contact Erin Kimura-Walsh at ekimurawalsh@scu.edu
