This expectation for mature and responsible conduct also encompasses accountability for one’s own well-being, including responsible decision-making regarding physical and mental health. All participants of Pre-College Programs must familiarize themselves with the general guidelines and the general rules. Because students are expected to show good judgement at all times, not every kind of misconduct or behavioral expectation is defined here. The following information is to advise students and parents of arrangements, rules, and general expectations. Drugs and Other Substances Rules The Office of Pre-College Programs has a zero tolerance policy for consumption, possession, distribution, solicitation, assistance in the acquisition, transmission, trafficking, manufacturing, or attempt to manufacture alcohol, tobacco, e-cigarettes/vaping, illegal drugs, or drug paraphernalia at any time while enrolled in any Pre-College Program, whether on campus, off campus, or at a private gathering. **Participation in an incident or attending a gathering involving alcohol, illegal drugs, and/or the misuse of prescription drugs, or other means employed to induce results or effects similar to intoxication or impairment is cause for immediate dismissal from the program, even if the only evidence is social media.Drugs and Other Substances Rules Acknowledgement and Agreement(Required) I acknowledge and agree to the rules as outlined in Drugs and Other Substances Rules.Violence and Assault Rules Cases of assault and sexual misconduct are not tolerated in any Pre-College Program. If a student is a victim or a witness of a violent act or assault, the student must report it to a program counselor or the program director immediately. Pre-College Program staff will report it to University Police (662-915-7234), the Title IX Coordinator (662-915-7045), and Mississippi Department of Human Services (800-222-8000), and will provide a written notification as soon as possible thereafter. If the Program Director may be involved in the suspected assault or abuse, the student, parent, or program counselor should report the suspected assault or abuse to the University’s Title IX Coordinator (662-915-7045). Bullying and Harrasment Harassment of any kind, but particularly on the basis of identity or ability, is unacceptable and is in violation of the University of Mississippi M Book. From the M Book: Students, visitors, and other individuals affiliated with the University have the right to an environment free of conduct that unreasonably interferes, hinders, or otherwise denies equal access to University resources or opportunities. Therefore, students, visitors, and other individuals affiliated with the University should refrain from harassing others and creating an environment that denies these rights (a “hostile environment”). Whether conduct creates a hostile environment that denies equal access to University resources or opportunities is based on the totality of the circumstances, and includes the following considerations: The degree to which the conduct affects or affected one or more individuals’ ability to access an educational program or activity; The type, frequency, and duration of the conduct; The parties’ ages and roles within the education program or activity; The previous interactions between the parties; and The location of the conduct and the context in which it occurred. For speech to violate this policy, the speech must be more than merely offensive; it must be so objectively offensive, pervasive, and severe that it effectively denies the victim equal access to the University’s resources and opportunities. This would include speech based upon race, color, gender, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, religion, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, or genetic information that is so objectively offensive to effectively deny the victim equal access to the University’s programs or activities. This policy also prohibits the use of fighting words. Fighting words are abusive or insulting words or phrases: (1) directed toward an individual or group, (2) which by their very utterance inflict injury or are likely to provoke a violent reaction or cause the average person to retaliate, and (3) play no role in the expression of ideas and have little to no social value. Online harassment is also judged according to the above framework. If such actions are reported to Pre-College Program staff, an investigation will be made. Any participant found to have engaged in creating a hostile environment that denies equal access to University resources or opportunities may be subject to disciplinary action that includes dismissal from the program without a refund.Violence and Assault Rules Acknowledgement and Agreement(Required) I acknowledge and agree to the rules as outlined in Violence and Assault Rules.Visits to Other Buildings and Visitors in Building It is strictly forbidden for a Pre-College Programs student to visit any other residence halls, fraternity or sorority houses, and campus apartments. These facilities are off-limits at all times. This includes the public lobbies of those facilities. Visiting other residence halls is cause for dismissal from the program. No visitors are allowed in the students’ rooms, including parents or family members unless they are assisting with move-in or move-out during the scheduled move-in/move-out times. Students cannot visit other students’ rooms after 10:00 pm. If it is an emergency, the student must contact a program counselor immediately. Failure to comply will result in disciplinary procedures. Visits to Other Buildings and Visitors in Building Acknowledgement and Agreement(Required) I acknowledge and agree to the rules as outlined in Visits to Other Buildings and Visitors in Building.Leaving Campus Rules Students are not allowed to leave campus without a program counselor, instructor, and/or staff members at any time unless the student is checked out by a parent/guardian. There is no exception to this rule; failure to comply will result in dismissal from the program. Leaving Campus Rules Acknowledgement and Agreement(Required) I acknowledge and agree to the rules as outlined in Leaving Campus Rules.University Rules All Pre-College Programs participants must abide by all University of Mississippi rules and regulations. This includes the University of Mississippi Minors on Campus policies, Residence Hall Code of Conduct, Academic Codes, UM Creed, and Pre-College Programs Rules. Failure to comply with any of these rules can lead to disciplinary procedures. Students are expected to show respect for one another, for program staff, and for all people on campus. Students are expected to participate constructively in program activities. University Rules Acknowledgement and Agreement(Required) I acknowledge and agree to the rules as outlined in University Rules.Residential Program Rules Pre-College Programs students living in any of the University residence halls must comply with Residence Halls Rules. Students must attend announcements from Monday to Thursday at 4:30 pm at the designated location. If a student is not in class, in a community activity, or with accompanied by a counselor, they must be inside their residence hall at all times. Students must be inside their room by 10:00 pm every night. Students must attend planned activities when they are scheduled. Commuter Program Rules Students must attend all sessions scheduled by instructor. Commuter students are not allowed in residence halls unless parents have contacted the program director and made arrangements for the student to attend community activities. Commuter students are not allowed to stay the night in the residence hall under any circumstances. Residential/Commuter Program Rules Acknowledgement and Agreement(Required) I acknowledge and agree to the rules as outlined in Residential/Commuter Program Rules.Consequences for Rule Violations Major versus Minor Rule Violations Minor violations are when a student intends no harm or disrespect for the rules. For example, being too boisterous in the residence hall is usually a minor violation, as is being five minutes past curfew. Major violations are when the student shows malice or disrespect for the rules or for other people. For example, intentionally harming another student is a major violation, as is breaking one of the program rules regarding safety or harassment (listed above). In the above minor violation examples, being boisterous in the residence hall rises to major level if someone is caused harm or if a student intentionally disregards warnings. A curfew violation would rise to major level if a student persisted in being late by more than 10 minutes, or if a student was being disrespectful by purposefully going past curfew. Penalties for minor rule violations include loss of privileges. Major rule violation will in most cases lead to dismissal from the program. Major Rule Violation Review If a student is suspected to have broken a major rule, staff will investigate. Pre-College Program staff will follow the steps below during the investigation: If necessary, cell phones from all students involved will be collected (not searched). Students will be separated and facts will be gathered. Depending on the severity of the situation, University Police could become involved at this step. Once the investigation is over and a decision about action has been made, parents for all parties involved will be contacted and given a full report. If appropriate, reports will be filed with University offices. One of two actions will be taken according to the rules and general guidelines of The University of Mississippi and the Office of Pre-College Programs: No major violation is found – Disciplinary action will be imposed at the discretion of professional staff. A major rule violation has occurred - Send student home.

COVID Compliance and Liability Waiver Overview The University of Mississippi requires all summer program participants to complete the below waivers in order to participate. All participants' parents/guardians must complete and certify the "COVID-19 Compliance, Liability Waiver, and Assumption of the Risk Addendum." Students participating in a residential summer program, meaning the student will stay on-campus overnight, will need to have the UM Department of Student Housing's "COVID-19 Summer Housing Acknowledgment" form completed and certified by both student AND parent/guardian.COVID-19 Compliance, Liability Waiver, and Assumption of the Risk Addendum To be completed by parent/legal guardian. The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, is a highly infectious, life-threatening disease declared by the World Health Organization to be a global pandemic. COVID-19’s highly contagious nature means that contact with others, or contact with surfaces that have been exposed to the virus, can lead to infection. Additionally, individuals who may have been infected with COVID-19 may be asymptomatic for a period of time, or may never become symptomatic at all. Because of its highly contagious and sometimes “hidden” nature, it is currently very difficult to control the spread of COVID-19 or to determine whether, where, or how a specific individual may have been exposed to the disease. I understand that in accordance with current Center for Disease Control guidance, it is highly recommended that all persons continue to wear face masks; adhere to social distancing, including, limiting social gatherings to small numbers; and, that getting vaccinated is encouraged when it is made available. I agree that if my student is exhibiting symptoms or if, to my knowledge, my student has been in contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 or is exhibiting symptoms of respiratory illness, loss of taste or smell, a fever of 100.4°F or higher, or signs of a fever within the last 14 days, my student will not participate in the Ole Miss Summer Program (“Summer Program”). By signing up to attend the Summer Program, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19, the fact that it can be difficult to identify in another, and the inherent risks of exposure in a social setting to those who may be infected with COVID-19. I knowingly and voluntarily assume the risk that I and/or my student may be exposed to or infected with COVID-19 by participating in the Summer Program. I knowingly and voluntarily waive and release UM from all present and future claims of any type for any harm or loss, including economic loss, personal injury, death, or property damage suffered by me and/or my student and arising out of my student's participation in the Summer Program. I agree to indemnify, hold harmless, and covenant not to sue UM for any damages, personal injury, death, medical expenses, disability, lost wages, loss of capacity, property damage, court costs, attorney’s fees, or any other loss of any kind. I acknowledge that I have asked for and/or been given any information that I may need to determine the risks associated with my student participating in the Summer Program, and to make an informed assumption of those risks. Aware of the foregoing, I am knowingly and voluntarily allowing my student to participate in the Summer Program.HiddenHas this student tested positive for COVID-19?

HiddenCOVID-19 Summer Housing Acknowledgment To be completed by parent/legal guardian. In an effort to minimize the risk of infection and help slow the spread of COVID-19, all persons residing in a residence hall at the University of Mississippi (the “University”) must abide by the COVID-19 terms specified below. The limitations specified in this Acknowledgment are based on what is currently known about the transmission and severity of COVID-19 at the time, as communicated by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The University will update its housing policies and may further amend this Acknowledgment, as needed, as additional information and public health recommendations regarding COVID-19 become available. I understand this Acknowledgment outlines expectations specific to COVID-19 and must be completed fully to stay in conference housing at the University for summer 2023. I understand that I must comply with all University policies or protocols related to COVID-19. I acknowledge and agree that, if I exhibit any signs or symptoms of COVID-19, as enumerated by the CDC at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html, or if I have been in close contact (i.e., within six (6) feet of someone for more than fifteen (15) minutes who has tested positive for COVID-19) and am not fully vaccinated, it is my responsibility to notify the University’s Department of Student Housing (“Student Housing”) designee and immediately self-isolate or quarantine (as directed). Quarantine and self-isolation mean NO human contact with ANYONE, including family, friends, and especially going out into the public. I understand that if symptoms are mild, this does not mean that the virus cannot be spread to someone else and put others at severe risk. I understand that if I need to self-quarantine or isolate because of COVID-19, I will adhere to our group’s COVID readiness plan and contact the Student Housing designee. I acknowledge and agree that, in the event of a medical emergency, 911 will be called, and the operator will be notified if I may have COVID-19. A face covering should be put on before medical help arrives. I acknowledge and agree that, if I receive a positive test result for COVID-19 while in conference housing, I will report it to the Student Housing designee immediately. I understand that, if I have been exposed to COVID-19 (and are not fully vaccinated), diagnosed COVID-19 positive, or directed to self-quarantine or isolate because of COVID-19, I may be required to vacate Student Housing facilities so as not to jeopardize the health or the health and safety of others. I acknowledge that Student Housing may utilize a short-term holding area for any affected person. I understand that overnight stays in a residence hall could increase my risk of contracting any contagious disease because of the dense populations in the residence halls. I understand that the best way to reduce risk of exposure and minimize the spread of COVID-19 to is to follow the public health recommendations issued from the CDC, and therefore I agree to: Wash hands often with soap and water for a least 20 seconds. Use hand sanitizer, with 60-95% alcohol if soap/water is not available. Avoid touching eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands. Avoid contact with people who are sick. Stay home if sick and avoid close contact with others. Cover mouth and nose with an elbow or a tissue when coughing sneezing, and immediately dispose of the used tissue. Wear face coverings as may be required by the University, the City of Oxford, and/or the State of Mississippi. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in assigned room. I understand that I am participating in a conference that involves an overnight stay in a communal living environment during a global pandemic. The University cannot guarantee that participants will not be exposed to or contract COVID-19 or another communicable disease. It is understood that there are known and unknown risks that could affect the health, safety, and well-being, including but not limited to illness, injury, temporary or permanent impairment, and death of participants. I acknowledge that I knowingly elect to participate in an overnight stay within a residence hall with a full understanding and acceptance of these risks and without any undue pressure or coercion. I understand that this Acknowledgment is intended to protect the health and safety of myself and all conference participants. Any non-compliance with the terms of this Acknowledgment may result in my removal from conference housing. I acknowledge and agree that if I am removed for failing to comply with this Acknowledgment, no housing fees will be adjusted or refunded. I understand that the Department of Student Housing will not offer quarantine and isolation housing to conference participants who are under the age of 18-years old. I acknowledge and agree that if I must vacate Student Housing for COVID related concerns, no housing fees will be adjusted or refunded.
