Undergraduate Info

Registration

Registration opens May 1, 2019 and will close on July 1, 2019.

Each chapter/colony has seven (7) paid-for spots designated for the Consul, Pro Consul, Quaestor, Magister, Recruitment Chairman, Kustos (Ritual Chairman), and the Risk Manager (Social Chairman). Thomas Cowan Bell Chapters receive additional paid-for spots (+3 for Blue Bell Chapters and +5 for Gold Bell Chapters). Each elected officer from the list above has a corresponding registration option. Any attendees who are not currently elected to one of the listed seven (7) positions may register for the officer track they prefer with two caveats; the chapter must fill all empty officer track slots prior to sending multiple members to the same track and, only Consuls and Consuls-elect may register for the Consul officer track. All colony members should register for the Expansion Track. 

Registrants over the chapter/colony's paid-for allotment are $350 each. Any cancellations made after the registration deadline (July 1, 2019) without a corresponding replacement registration are subject to late fees (see fee table below). Any undergraduate attendee who does not submit a cancellation and does not check in at KTLW will incur a no-show fee of $350. Charges for extra participants, cancellations fees, and no-show fees, will be assessed to the chapter's or colony's account after KTLW . Chapters/colonies will have eight (8) weeks from the date of their fee notice to inquire about the fee(s). This deadline will be clearly communicated in the notice. Inquires submitted after 8 weeks will be acknowledged, but not fulfilled.

For a chapter to receive its stipend, every participant must attend every session they are registered for. Failure to do so will forfeit the entire chapter’s stipend.

Stipends will be awarded as a credit on the chapter's account (viewed in the finances dashboard of the Chapter System), notification of the credit will be sent to each Consul and Quaestor. Chapters and colonies will have eight (8) weeks from the date of their stipend notice to inquire about the stipend. This deadline will be clearly communicated in the notice. Inquires submitted after eight (8) weeks will be acknowledged, but not fulfilled.

Expectations and Conduct Policy

Participants' conduct should reflect Sigma Chi's high ideals and enhance the reputation of our Fraternity. Krach Transformational Leaders Workshop (KTLW) is an event at which our members' actions are highly visible; therefore, participants should take extra care with their words and actions.

The Education and Leadership Board (ELB) will continue a policy of no alcohol anywhere on campus, including in the residence halls. During unscheduled time and while off-campus, no attempt will be made to dictate participants' actions. If you do go out, please act responsibly. If you are driving, assign a designated driver.

Any damage to residence hall rooms or any other facilities will be the financial responsibility of the individuals who cause the damage. In the event that damage or loss occurs in public areas of the living facility, such as lounges or hallways, and the person responsible cannot be identified, all chapters that had attendees residing on that floor may be held responsible for damages. Tampering with fire extinguishers or alarms will lead to an automatic fine and disciplinary action.

Security personnel will be in the residence halls during the late evening hours. They are there for your safety and should be treated with the utmost respect and courtesy. Their presence will in no way impede your fun, as long as you observe university policies, local ordinances and state laws.

Violations of any of the above guidelines will result in disciplinary action, which may include dismissal from KTLW. None of the faculty or staff has any desire to act as police; we trust that your responsible behavior will eliminate the need for such action.

If there is a violation in policy, including, but not limited to the misuse of alcohol, drugs, or other behavior unbecoming of a Sigma Chi that results in expulsion from KTLW, the individual in question will be asked to leave at his own expense.
