1.  Please note that MAIR seminars never conflict; sometimes the registration system will block registration in classes that appear to overlap until we override the system.   Contact Dr. Willoughby for assistance.

2.  Deadlines for minimum student participation in travel courses might be in the summer 2013 but no later than the first week of September.  Registration is completed through the international center by way of Dr. Willoughby, not through one stop, and involves a 600 dollar nonrefundable deposit. 

3.  Electives are offered in History, Business, Law, and Peace and Justice, and at the undergraduate level in Political Science.  Taking these courses typically requires program approvals from both programs.  Normally MAIR students are limited to 6 units of outside program electives.
