Time conflicts

Below are general guidelines for time conflicts.

  • Returning students can have a conflict with their team meeting if the instructor approves. This works well for teams with regular sub-team meetings. There is no formal approval process. Instead, time-conflict permits are issued freely, and students are responsible for confirming with their instructors that they can work around the conflict.

If you are a returning student and a time-conflict permit was not issued with your regular permit, please email your name, GTID and a short explanation to

Switching Teams

The VIP Program does not allow students to freely switch from team to team. As a discincentive, students are typically asked to take a one-semester break between participation on one team and another. Students seeking exception to this rule should provide a detailed explanation in the comments section in the online application.
