Frequently Asked Questions
Cultural Life Program
How do you know I've attended an event? How do I receive CLP credit?
When you arrive at a CLP Event, you will be required to present your student ID card for verification. Your card will be scanned and you will receive a CLP attendance car. You should complete the attendance card and personally turn it in when you exit the event. To receive credit, your student ID card and your attendance card must match.
Once you've attended an event, the credit will show on your student record within a business week.
How does the Cultural Life Program work for transfer students or students studying away from campus?
Students studying away from campus on travel study or with a Furman affiliate program will be awarded credit for attendance at 4 CLP events for each semester they cannot attend events here on campus. Students who transfer in, graduate early or study away from campus are also credit for CLP count prior to graduation.
How about cultural experiences I have on my own? Can I apply for CLP credit for personal travel or attendance at concerts, etc.?
No. These are exactly the kind of experiences we hope you will have on your own time, but in the interest of fairness to add student and administrative feasibility the program cannot include these events.
How can I find out when and where CLP events are offered? How many are offered each year?
There are typically over 200 CLP events offered per year; your job is to select and attend at least eight. All upcoming events are shown on the Furman Events Calendar under the CLP category which is accessible from any on-campus computer. The external Furman Events Calendar shows information about any CLP events open to the public for anyone off-campus. The Paladin often features upcoming CLPs. Faculty frequently announce recommended events in their classes, while event sponsors often post advertising fliers around campus. Keep your eyes and ears open - when you hear of an event that appeals to you, attend it!
Can I get credit for attending events more than once? For example, plays and some musical events?
No. You receive one CLP award per event attended. Although you are welcome to attend events more than once, you will only receive a single credit. Exceptions will be explicitly noted on the CLP website.
What if I attend an event, but I'm not credited for it?
Be patient. It can take up to a business week for credit to be posted. If the event credit is still not showing up, come visit Academic Records.
