Working/Classes During the Summer
Though FASET Leaders are required to be present at all sessions and trainings (unless authorized prior), NSTP supports any student who decides to enroll in classes, participate in a co-op/internship, or be employed on or off campus. However, all FASET Leaders must communicate the required dates to their employers and have a written and supervisor approved plan to balance both their job and FASET.
Students who are studying abroad during the Spring Semester are eligible to apply to be a FASET Leader. These leaders are still required to attend all trainings/sessions that take place following their study abroad term. Those applying while abroad will participate in a Skype interview with the Assistant Director and members of Cabinet.
