Residential and Commuter Programs - Final Pre-Summer Message

June 2016

Dear SIG Families:

We are very excited about the upcoming SIG season and look forward to welcoming our students this summer. All of your child’s SIG program information is being provided to you electronically this year in an effort to reduce our carbon footprint AND so you will always have access to the information electronically no matter where you are (with an internet connection of course)!

Please take a moment to log into your child’s portal at to locate important information including:

  • Final Course Schedule*
  • Campus welcome letter (important information regarding your arrival / orientation day)
  • Campus map and/or driving directions
  • Parking information
  • Student handbook
  • Campus FAQs
  • Campus specific forms that may need to be returned to SIG prior to arrival day
  • Account balance information - Final payment is due 45 days prior to your program start date ( a late fee of $50 will be incurred for all accounts not paid in full by this date)

In addition, please remember to log into your account at to ensure all of your child’s health history and physical forms are complete.

*The process of finalizing course schedules is now complete. While we make every effort to provide students with their chosen course schedules; it is possible that a course you listed on your application may not be listed due to class size constraints or insufficient enrollment. In that case, the student’s alternate selection has been scheduled. If there is a blank period listed it may be because a course was not selected originally or the classes chosen for that period will not run.

The online course selection tool has been disabled for the remainder of the SIG season. You may select/change a course by either contacting your Program Director or our admissions department at (866) 303-4744. You may email questions to

We look forward to meeting you and your child this summer.
