    Advisors and HUA Administrators

    Post scheduled HUA opportunities to the Project Opportunities page.

    • Choose Advisor > Add Project from the menu
    • Ensure the Advertising Status of the project is set to Advertising.

    Students

    Once a student finds an interesting opportunity, they may click the Request to Join button on the project. They will fill out a form detailing the previous courses they’ve taken.

    • Overload: If participation in the HUA will cause an overload for the student in the term the HUA is taking place the student must upload proof of approval in the form of a screenshot taken of an email from their academic advisor issuing approval for the overload.
    • Maximum 2 Active Requests: Students may only have 2 active requests to join a HUA project at any time. A student may rescind a request so that they may create another request. Requests may be rescinded by the student as long as the request has not already been registered. If the request has already been registered, then the student may modify their Registration Request and request cancellation of the registration.
    HUA opportunities at Project Centers:
    Please note these will not use the Request to Join feature and will instead rely on the existing application process of the Global Program for entry into off-campus opportunities. See the section on HUA Project Centers for more information.

    The student submits the form to the Advisor for approval, which will send an email notice to the Instructor of the HUA opportunity.

    Instructor - Review and Approve

    Options to View Requests:

    • The instructor may open the link in their email or visit their eProjects Dashboard to see Requests to Join that are awaiting their approval.
    • Project advisors/instructors may also navigate to the project and click on the Requests to Join tab to see all requests for that particular project on one screen.

    To review a Request to Join, the project instructor will review the form that the student filled out and can decide if the student is eligible to join the project. Instructors will please keep in mind the typical capacity of 12 HUA project students when approving students. All requests to join a HUA project are listed on the Requests to Join tab of the project so they may be reviewed.

    • The instructor may approve a student at which point the student will receive email notification and the request will be forwarded to the Registrar’s Office where the registration request for the student will be processed.
    • If the student was denied, the student will receive an email notification, and they may alter their request to try again, or rescind the request and find another opportunity to apply for.

    Registrar

    The Registrar’s Office will review registration requests from each student and register them for credit in the appropriate term.

    • If there are problems with the registration request (e.g. lack of appropriate overload proof, or other administrative issues) the Registrar will send the request back to the student for clarification.
    • If the student requested registration and was approved for more than one HUA opportunity, the Registrar’s Office will reach out to the student to understand which single option they would like to register for.

    Once a registration request has been processed by the Registrar’s Office the student will be added as a student member to the project in eProjects 2.0 and they will be fully registered for credit.
