MPP students can choose from a variety of student types. Students can choose to participate as a commuter, residential or online student.
Live at home and commute to the MPP program daily. Commuter students are required to sign-in daily at 8am and sign-out at the end of the day. Sign-out time varies by program location. You can expect to sign-out of the program sometime around 5pm. On the days that we have special events, group activities, site visits, and medical school tours, students can expect to sign out between 6pm and 9pm.
Commuter Extended students
Live at home and commute to the MPP program daily, however this extended option aids families who are not able to pick up their student at 5pm. Elementary and middle school families that choose the commuter extended option must pick up their student by 7pm.
Live on-campus while attending the MPP Academy. Living on campus is not required to participate in the program and is an optional programmatic feature to experience first-hand what it feels like to be a college student. Furthermore, the residential student option aids families who are unable to drop off and pick up their students from the program daily.
Attend live meetings using a video conferencing tool such as Zoom, which facilitates real-time communication between students and instructors via audio, webcam, and text-based chat.
