Unaccompanied Minor (UAM) Service is a fee-based service that is arranged through the airline. Airlines have age requirements that vary by the airline and may mandate that this service is purchased if the child is flying alone. Please contact the airline for details on using this service.

If you do purchase this service, please contact the Program Office to ensure that our staff is prepared to meet your child.

CHECK-IN AND PICK-UP TIMES (if you are dropping off your child)

Check-in time: Summit check-in is from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM on the first day of the program. Parents dropping students off can take part in the parent orientation. The check-in desk will remain open until all students have arrived, however we ask that you plan to arrive during the window above so that your child does not miss orientation and activities planned for that afternoon and evening.

Pick-up time: On the departure day, students must be picked up by 9:00 AM.

Driving directions to the summit site will be provided before the summit. Upon arriving on campus, please look for the signs that will direct you to the Ambassador Leadership Summit registration area.
