A deposit of $50 is required for participation in the Boot Camp; this deposit is due upon registration. Once you submit your registration form, please pay your deposit at the Writing, Speaking, and Argument Program (RR G121), located near the stairs to Gleason Library in the Rush Rhees Library. The main office is open Monday-Friday, 9am-4pm. We can accept cash (exact change please) or checks payable to “The Writing, Speaking, and Argument Program.” Without a deposit, your spot may be filled.
Deposits will be returned in full upon completion of the requirements, which includes attendance and progress towards personal writing goals. Once you begin attending Boot Camp, you have made a personal commitment to yourself and the community of writers at Boot Camp. Your deposit represents this commitment. If you are absent or repeatedly tardy, your deposit may be kept. Deposits that are not returned to participants will be put toward supplies for future Boot Camps.
If you register and pay the deposit, but do not attend Boot Camp, please understand that your deposit may be kept. If, however, there are extenuating circumstances, or we can fill your spot with someone from the wait list, then your deposit may be returned.
