All participants in adventure trips coordinated and led by the FSU Outdoor Pursuits program are subject to the following policies and procedures.

Where and How to Register

Current FSU students, faculty, staff, and non-students who have previously taken an OP trip, can register immediately by signing into Rec Connect with their FSU login. Go to Programs, then select the Outdoor Pursuits category to show the list of OP trips. Once you login to Rec Connect (upper right of screen), students will see discounted pricing with each trip.  You can sign-up and pay immediately in Rec Connect.

Non-students who are first-time OP participants should sign-up for a Rec Connect account to register online. Account creation is a two-step process in which you must confirm the account from an email sent after you sign-up.  Once you have an account, you can register online in Rec Connect.

Payment is due at registration. Cash, check payable to FSU, or credit/debit card are accepted at the FSU Reservation for in-person registrations.

Cancellations & Related Fees

There are NO refunds. If the trip is cancelled by Outdoor Pursuits, you have a medical excuse note from a doctor, or we can sell your spot.we can offer you a credit for use on future OP trip, Please note: There is a cancellation fee of 20% to cover paperwork costs should you cancel your spot, even if it is filled. If a student who receives a "free" spot on a trip must cancel his/her registration, they must do so at least 48 hours before trip departure to avoid being assessed a $10 cancellation fee.

Drug, Alcohol and Firearms Policy

ALL OP PROGRAMS ARE DRUG, ALCOHOL and Firearms FREE. Alcohol, drugs and firearms can make the backcountry into a very dangerous place. You put not only yourself at risk, but also other trip participants and leaders. Participants will be asked to sign a Drug and Alcohol Policy Consent Form upon trip registration.


 Transportation is provided for all participants on an Outdoor Pursuits trip to and from FSU campus.

Pre-Trip Meetings

For most trips, we hold a short pre-trip meeting to cover everything that will happen with your program. It gives us a chance to meet the group, go over expectations, and gives you the opportunity to get involved with some of the planning and ask questions. You are required  to attend the pre-trip meeting. Meal planning, equipment fitting and other timely information is covered, so don't miss it.


All staff is trained in First Aid and CPR. The cost of any rescue or treatment beyond first aid will be borne by the participant. Outdoor Pursuits is not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged personal equipment.
