Trip Information

  • Please plan to attend the required pre-trip meeting for our off-campus trips.
  • Alcohol, tobacco and drug use are prohibited for the duration of the trip. If you violate these rules, you are subject to removal from the trip, and transportation back to NC State will be at your expense.

Refunds

If a participant can no longer go on a trip, participants must inform Outdoor Adventures they can no longer attend at least two weeks before the pre-trip meeting. They must request a refund by contacting Wellness and Recreation staff (wellrec-outdoor@ncsu.edu). Deposits on trips are non-refundable.

For personal emergencies, partial or full refunds between two weeks and the pre-trip meeting may be considered with written and verifiable proof of inability to attend (i.e., a doctor’s note). The participant must provide documentation at least five business days before the trip’s departure date for any refund to be considered. No refunds will be given after this period, regardless of the reason.      

All refunds are at the discretion of Wellness and Recreation. We will provide refunds if the activity is canceled.
