Request a Field Trip Waiver

Five College Compliance & Risk Management has developed an online waiver database where students can electronically sign waivers and trip managers can easily track which students have signed a waiver for their activity. Faculty and staff planning to take Five College students on a voluntary, domestic field trip must complete the webform below in order to request an electronic waiver. 

More information about online waivers at the Five Colleges

After you have submitted the form below, a member of the Five College Risk Management office will contact you to confirm that your online waiver is ready. We will also supply you with instructions on how to direct students to the online waiver form and how to view which students have completed the waiver. 

Select the sponsoring institution. For instance, if you are going on a Mount Holyoke sponsored field trip with students from all five institutions, select Mount Holyoke College. If you are uncertain as to who the sponsoring institution is, please include your concerns in the comment box below.
Please provide the destination of your field trip. If there is more than one destination, please list as many as is reasonable, or further describe the locations in the Comments box below.
Provide the date you would like students to start signing waivers. Please note that once a student has signed the waiver, it cannot be changed, so be sure that this date reflects when you will know all pertinent trip and travel details.
Provide any additional instructions that you would like to provide for students. This could include reminders on pre-trip assignments, other requirements students must meet before the field trip, or even more information on the trip itself that the student should see here.
Provide any special or specific risks that students should be aware of before attending this field trip. General risks that apply to most field trips will be automatically included in the waiver form.
Please add any other comments or questions you may have about your field trip or the waiver process.
