Field Trip Information*

Instructors often use field trips to teach and engage students in activities related to the course. Students may be required to attend field trips outside of normal class periods. These are usually mandatory and require advance planning. Please check with your instructor before formalizing plans.

Students may also be required to use special equipment, tools or instruments. The instructor will outline all field trip equipment and how to obtain them. Although the course syllabus may contain this information, please follow additional or final instructions mentioned during class.

Your safety is our highest concern. Appropriate apparel should always be worn. Please check with your instructor to ensure you wear the necessary clothes. Due to their nature, field trips are often conducted away from campus. Travel to and from the field trip may require you to use personal or university transportation. All university required forms must be completed prior to driving your vehicle on a field trip. Please talk to your instructor or contact us for further information.

*The fieldtrips listed here represent those that require time outside of regularly scheduled class hours. Fieldtrip schedules are subject to change. Please check with instructor.
