Registration Dates

Expeditions: All expedition registration will happen at one time, in September 2017 and all participants will be notified by October 2017. There will be an Information Session held in September 2017 for ALL expeditions, intensives and workshops which will provide additional information on the types of ventures – expeditions vs. intensives vs. workshops and what is involved in each.

Intensives and Expeditions:

These Ventures fill fast, sign up to reserve your spot for one of these incredible experiences to develop your leadership skills.

Registration happens via Course Match to efficiently and equitably distribute selection of students for all Intensives and Expeditions.

Students will be notified if they have been selected for the Venture. Participant lists are randomly selected. If you are not selected, you can still add yourself to the waitlist of an Intensive or Expedition until 1 week prior to the Venture.

2018-2019 Registration for ALL Expeditions and Fall Intensives:

Tuesday, September 18 at 9AM – Thursday, September 20 at 5PM

*Students will receive an email with registration link to apply*


Two Full Land Cost Scholarships are available per Expedition Ventures. Student Financial Services approves scholarship applicants based on need and our Course Match algorithm randomly selects scholarship recipients for each venture.

If Student Financial Services does not approve you as a  scholarship candidate, you can still apply for an expedition during the general application round on September 18 – September 20.

Expedition Scholarship Application Registration:

September 5 – September 10, 2018

*Students will receive an email with registration link to apply*
