Minors on Campus

Individuals under the age of 18 are not permitted in the SS@CC Administrative Suite or the Academic & Classroom Suite unless the minor is accompanied by an authorized adult and the minor is attending an acknowledged program, sanctioned event, admissions visit or official campus visit authorized by an university partner. An authorized adult is any individual, age 18 or older, paid or unpaid, who interacts with, supervises, chaperones, hosts or otherwise oversees minors in educational and/or recreational program activities. This includes, but is not limited to, faculty, staff, volunteers, graduate and undergraduate students, interns, employees of temporary employment agencies, and independent contractors/consultants.

If permitted on campus, affiliated minors must be accompanied by an authorized adult at all times and never left unattended. The SS@CC is not responsible for unaccompanied minors.

Exceptions to this policy require a written request for approval from the SS@CC Executive Director or the Center Operations Manager.
