Frequently Asked Questions

What qualifies as a potentially dangerous activity that requires use of the General Liability Release Form?

Any activity where there is a reasonable chance (as opposed to an outside possibility) of injury requires use of the form.  When in doubt, ask if it's needed.

What do I need to do to take my class on a field trip?

No Event Registration Form is required unless there are potentially dangerous activities involved in the trip.  Class trips also do not require the General Liability Release form.  The only forms required are the Off-Campus Trip Roster and the Private Vehicle Release (if applicable).
