Any programs or activities that involve interactions with minors on University property, or University-sponsored programs or activities held at off-campus locations, must be registered with the University.

Registration is required annually and must be completed 30 days in advance of the program start date indicated on this registration form. This allows for adequate time to review the registration, conduct background checks, and complete training.

Once your registration is submitted, a member of the Youth Protection Oversight Committee will contact you regarding required background checks and training in order to comply with the University’s Youth Protection Policy.
