All students must document annually that they have read, understand, and agree to comply with program Policies and Procedures. All UNC and CLS policies apply whether the student is on-campus or off-campus. In addition, students are expected to adhere to the policies of the host facility. If the facility's policy (i.e., dress code) is more restrictive than the CLS policy, the student is governed by the facility policy.
