FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I need to have previous experience to participate on an Adventure Trip?
No. Most all of our trips and clinics are designed for the beginner and do not require previous experience. If a trip does require some experience it will be noted. Additionally, each trip is rated for skill level and for physical exertion level. Please refer to the Trip Rating Chart for specifics.
Can I reserve a space on a trip and then pay later?
No. Spaces on trips can only be reserved by turning in all required paperwork and paying in full. For some extended trips you have the option of paying the deposit upon registering, with the remaining amount due by the registration deadline.
What if I don't have current health insurance coverage?
If you are a UT student... No problem. UT students are eligible to purchase student health insurance coverage for special events at $2 per person per day.
Why are there priority registration periods for students to register for extended trips?
While the UT Adventure Trip Program is open to anyone 18 and older, one of the Program's main goals is to provide inexpensive outdoor recreation activities to UT students. It is for this reason that we provide priority registration periods to allow UT students first shot at all of the extended trips.
