      Thank you for your interest in the July Institute! Please feel free to look at the Institute description on the website and be sure to download a PDF registration form in order to register for the Institute by June 1. The registration form is available from the Institute’s page, located directly below the description. Students in professional degree programs may use the Institute as a Non-Project Option (NPO), but students may also use an Institute as credit toward their degree and choose to complete a project. We hope you are able to join us, and we look forward to receiving your registration form! Any questions you might have about this Institute or any future Institute, you may direct them to the Office of the Provost. Thank you again.
