Interim Policy

(As revised by the Board of Directors April 22, 1997)

1. Definition of Interim An "interim" is defined as the period of time between school terms; more specifically, an interim begins on the first day after the last day of finals of the previous term and continues until the day before the houses open for the new term.

2. Tenancy during Interim

  • A. Resident members who have signed resident contracts for consecutive terms may use the facilities during interim periods at no charge provided the contract is signed prior to the first day of interim.
  • B. Current resident members who will not be staying for the following term must vacate the house no later than three days after the end of the term. During this three day period there will be no charge for their stay. After this three day period if they are still in the house they will be charged a $30.00 "FAILURE TO VACATE" fine, as well as a $7.00 per day guest fee (the current SCA minimum guest rate), which must be paid in advance. In no event may they stay longer than three days prior to the beginning of the next term.
  • C. New resident members who will be joining SCA the following term may arrive at the house three days prior to the first day the houses are open for the new term. During this three day period there will be no charge for their stay. If they arrive prior to this three day period they will be charged $5.00 per day guest fee (the current SCA minimum guest rate), which must be paid in advance. In no event may they arrive sooner than three days after the end of the previous term.
  • D. Current resident members who will be staying but do not have signed contracts for the following term will be charged as stated in the guest policy.

3. House Operations during Interim

  • A. At least three weeks prior to the end of Fall and Winter Terms each house shall elect an Interim Coordinator. The Interim Coordinators will be responsible for the smooth functioning of the house during the Fall-Winter and Winter-Spring interims.
  • B. At least four weeks prior to the end of Spring Term each house shall elect two Summer Guardians who will assume the duties of Interim Coordinator during the Spring-Summer and Summer-Fall interims. The Guardians shall be responsible for the smooth functioning of the house during the time period beginning with the first day after the end of Spring Term through the first 10 days of Fall term. Should there not be Summer Guardians, the houses will elect Interim Coordinators at the end of Spring and Summer Terms as stated in 3B above.
  • C. At least one week prior to the end of each term the House Interim Coordinators and/or House Guardians shall receive proper training and guidance from the current house treasurers, membership coordinators, job coordinators, and appropriate corporate officers and staff.
  • D. As there are no planned meals during the interim, no food will be purchased for use during the interim. It is possible to purchase non-food items (such as toilet paper and cleaning and maintenance supplies) prior to the end of the term for use during the interim.
