  The List of 'I Understands'  

Over the years the ILC has had ILCers and parents who, while right in the middle of the program, tell us that no one ever told them about certain aspects, requirements or obligations of The Ivy League Connection. In particular, they’ve told us that no one ever told them they would be required to perform certain tasks, attend specific functions or would not be allowed to do some things.

As a result, the List of ‘I Understands’ was established and is provided to each student - to be shared with their parents - prior to their applying to the ILC. The ILC wants each applicant to know what they’re getting themselves into before they even apply. Transparency in what’s expected is a critical part of the ILC.

List of 'I Understands'

Every item on this list is the result of something that’s happened in the past that requires us now to let our applicants and parents know about the resulting rules and requirements. Even though the list is provided to each applicant beforehand, at the end of the year the list needs to be expanded.

All applicants need to read this list, make sure that your parents read it and make sure that everyone involved understands it and will abide by it before asking to be a part of The Ivy League Connection. A violation of these items is grounds for the revocation of your scholarship.

Once an applicant has been accepted by the panelists, each new ILCer will be provided with a signature sheet to be taken home, signed by the parents and the student and then returned to
the ILC.
