Domestic Travel with Student Organizations

Faculty or Staff advisors organizing travel with these student clubs, associations, organizations, or Greek societies must follow the following steps before travel begins:

  1. Notify Student Life & Leadership that travel with a student organization will occur. 
  2. Have each participant execute a Release of Liability Waiver  prior to traveling. 
  3. Please note that if the student participant is a minor, the student's guardian(s) must execute the Release of Liability PDF.  
  4. Inform the Student Life & Leadership Coordinator when the Release and Guidelines have been executed.
  5. Email a scanned copy of the Participant Waiver to University Police Department. Ensure the relevant organization retains the original copy.
  6. Unless these forms are executed and returned, CSUSM will not authorize or support travel.
