Enrolled Students Next Steps

In addition to the steps below, add saic-youth@saic.edu to your email contacts. This will prevent important information about your course from being sorted into your spam folder.

  • If you registered online and your child does not have any allergies and/or other medical/health conditions, you do not need to complete this step.

    If you registered your student by phone, email, or submission of a PDF registration form, a signed Consent Form is required to participate in the Children's Workshops at SAIC; failure to submit a signed Consent Form prior to the first class may prevent participation. This includes students using tuition vouchers and tuition remission. Please send the signed Consent Form to saic-youth@saic.edu.

    Parents/guardians of students with allergies and/or other medical/health conditions that might require emergency assistance should complete an Allergy History Form and/or Emergency Action Plan Form‌, or email saic-youth@saic.edu. This information is confidential and only shared with program staff. Please resubmit all medical forms each term, even if you submitted them previously.

  • Parents/guardians of students with disabilities that may require accommodations are advised to contact the Disability and Learning Resource Center (DLRC) to schedule a time to meet with one of their staff to discuss all accommodation needs.

    SAIC is committed to providing opportunities for full participation in all programs for students with disabilities, including Continuing Studies students and Students At Large. Disabled students should first contact the DLRC to request reasonable accommodations. To plan for the most effective accommodations, we ask that you contact the DLRC at least two weeks before the start date for the course.

    The DLRC can be reached by phone at 312.499.4278 or email dlrc@saic.edu.

  • Students will need an ARTICard, the SAIC ID, to enter campus buildings. You will receive an email from articard@saic.edu to your home email address in the week prior to the start of your class which details how to submit your identification photo.

    Students will receive their ARTICard during their first class meeting. Students who registered late or did not submit their photo will have an opportunity to get their ARTICard made on the first day of class.

  • SAIC Continuing Studies values arts classrooms in which all individuals are treated with respect, kindness, and understanding. We work together to build and maintain safe, joyful, and rigorous arts learning environments where all community members are able to learn and grow as artists and people. In order to participate in the Children's Workshops, the student and his or her parent/legal guardian must agree that the student will, at all times, abide by the Rules of Conduct below and participate in the Progressive Consequences process as needed.

  • Drop-off and pick-up of Multi-Arts Camp students will take place at:  
    280 Building Lobby (280 S. Columbus Drive)

    Drop-off happens between 8:40 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. 
    On the first day of class, all parents and guardians of students are required to come into the 280 Building lobby with their student for Day-1 Check-in.

    During Day-1 Check-in, students will confirm their contact information, receive their pick-up pass, receive a flier with important session information, and fill out any allergy history or emergency action forms needed.

    Pick-up happens at 4:00 p.m. 
    There will always be staff members and your students’ classroom assistants present at all campus buildings to release your students during pick-up. You will need to pick up your student on foot from in front of the lobby of the 280 Building. 

    Please have the printed pick-up pass or a photo of it ready to present to staff.

  • You will receive a Welcome & Next Steps email from saic-youth@saic.edu in the days leading up to the start of class. The subject line will include Welcome & Next Steps.

    In this email you will find:

    • A reminder to complete the steps outlined on this page
    • Information regarding first day check-in
    • Guidelines for drop-off and pick-up
