To state the approval process, documentation requirements, and maintenance of field trip documents and records

All field trips must be pre-approved by the appropriate Department Head and Associate Dean at least two weeks in advance. Field trips should be scheduled at a time that will conflict least with other courses the students are taking. Faculty members taking students on field trips must notify other faculty members whose classes are being affected. Field trips do not replace future class sessions.

Students going on field trips will have signed a copy of the Student Release Form before participating with the class. Student release forms are to remain on file with the Department Head for a period of not less than one year. The pre-approved Field Trip form will be posted on classroom door the day (s) of the field trip. Field Trip request forms are to be attached to the course roster at the end of the semester.

The Field Form Request Form and Student Release Form can be accessed online in the Forms Section of the Personnel Handbook Policy Manual.
