FAQ's - Field Trips
Field trips require the approval by the Dean of Distance Education, Evening and Weekend Programs at least 5 working days prior to the trip using the appropriate form. Field Trip Forms are available for download from this web site. A signed Student Voluntary Field Trip/Excursion Notice form must be submitted for each participating student along with the request/authorization form. It is the instructor’s responsibility to distribute, collect and turn in these forms to the Dean of Distance Education, Evening and Weekend Programs prior to the field trip.

The following should be adhered to when considering field trips:
  • Field trips must be related to the course objectives.

  • All field trips must be voluntary, i.e. any student who cannot attend must be provided with an optional assignment of equal value in grading.

  • Unless the College is providing the transportation, the instructor shall not mandate any aspect of the transportation including route of travel, “caravanning”, rider ship, time of travel, etc.

  • No student shall participate unless the Student Voluntary Field Trip/Excursion form has been signed;

  • During the field trip all Hartnell rules and regulations are to be observed since the field trip is an official function of Hartnell College.
