Calendar of Events
Alternative events not hosted by the Cal Poly Scholars Program may be counted toward Cal Poly Scholars requirements IF they are meaningfully relevant to the goals of the Cal Poly Scholars Program. Alternative events might include Career Services workshops, industry networking events, or outreach to future Scholars. Participation in the Cal Poly career fairs cannot be counted as an alternative event. However, attending career fair preparation workshops or industry networking events may be counted.
Scholars may receive emails from their program coordinator to notify them of upcoming alternative events. Additionally, Scholars may contact their program coordinator via email to request permission to attend an alternative event of their choosing. Alternative events must be approved through email by the coordinator prior to the event.
Year 1 & 2 Scholars are limited to two alternative events counted toward their 4 event requirement.
To receive attendance credit for alternative events, students must complete the corresponding entry via PolyLearn demonstrating how the event was relevant to the goals of the Cal Poly Scholars Program.
