When can I register for ASB?
General van registration for road trips will available online at 12:00pm (noon) on Wednesday, December 3. A link will be posted on the spring break website which will allow you to register for a van trip.
Air travel trips required an application. Applications were due by 5:00pm, Friday, October 31 and are now closed. Air travel trips will NOT be available in general van trip registration in December.
What are my payment options?
Payment must be made in full at the time of registration. Only online payments with a debit/credit card will be accepted. There are no refunds for ASB fees. Please carefully consider whether you can commit to an ASB trip before signing up.
Participants chosen for air travel trips will be requied to pay all registration fees once they are notified of trip placement. Payment is not due at time of application submission.
How quickly do trips fill up?
Last year, registration for all trips was completed by mid December. Air travel trips require an application. Therefore, places on air travel trips will be decided by December. Van trips do NOT require an application and are available for general registration online. These trips do fill up quickly and we encourage participants to register as soon as possible once registration opens.
Can I be placed on a waiting list?
OSV does maintain a short waiting list for each van trip. However, please be aware that students rarely cancel their ASB reservations. The only way to guarantee a spot in ASB is to register for an available trip. Please note that there are no waiting lists for air travel trips.
To be placed on a van trip waiting list, you must choose one van trip. You may not register for an ASB trip and then ask to be placed on the waiting list for another trip.
To be placed on a waiting list, please email Christine.Belcher@utdallas.edu with your name, classification and desired van trip.
Can I register for my friend?
Unfortunately, no. The system will only allow you to register and pay for one trip. Each student is responsible for his or her own registration.
Can I leave early or depart late from my ASB trip?
No. All students must stay together during spring break. No early or late departures will be allowed. Additionally, air travelers should consider the possibility of weather-related delays.
How can I become an ASB Site Leader?
Site Leader applications were due by 5:00pm, Friday, October 31 and are now closed.
Previous Viva Volunteer or ASB participation is preferred. Site Leaders are expected to serve as a driver or backup driver on all ASB trips; therefore, a valid driver's license is required.
While you may apply to be an ASB Site Leader, there is no guarantee that you will be selected to lead. The benefit of being a Site Leader is a guaranteed spot for the trip you are assigned.
