Congratulations on your admission to July Experience at Davidson College! We are excited to have you join us this summer. Below is some information and resources to help you prepare for your time with us.
Below are some next steps and important deadlines.
All July Experience participants must read, complete and submit the following registration forms:
If you are an international student participating in July Experience you should apply for the B-2 tourist (visitor for pleasure) visa, as your stay is of short duration and the academic portion of the program will amount to no more than 15 hours per week. If you are from a country that participates in the U.S Visa Waiver Program, you do not need to obtain a visa. However, you will need pre-approval through the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) prior to entering the U.S. Please consult the U.S. embassy or consulate in your country if you have any questions about the necessary documentation for your visit.
All international students must have sufficient medical insurance coverage that is valid in the United States for the duration of our summer program. Please arrange and submit your proof of temporary medical insurance to the July Experience staff.
All students are expected to be on campus for registration July 1. Check-in is from 1-3 p.m. at Grey House (Office of Admission), 405 North Main Street in Davidson. If you are traveling to Charlotte Douglas International Airport we will provide shuttles from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. with a fee of $20 per person one way on July 1. If you arrive outside of that time frame, you will be responsible for arranging your own travel from the airport. To reserve your spot on the shuttle, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will depart after individual conferences with your two professors on July 21. We will provide shuttles from 8 a.m.-noon with a fee of $20 per person one way. All July Experience students must be checked out of the dorm by noon. The final shuttle for the airport will leave at noon; please schedule your flight accordingly.
