How to Register
General registration for van/road trips will be available online in December. A registration link will be posted on the spring break website. Spots are limited, and you may not purchase multiple trips. Only one road trip may be purchased per person. Payment is due upon registration.
Air travel trips required an application. Applications will open in October 2015.
Applying for an air travel trip does not guarantee a spot on the trip. Participants chosen for air travel trips will be notified of participation in November 2015. Only payment can firmly secure a student's position on an ASB trip. Students selected to participate in an air travel trip will be required to make their payment by 5:00pm, November 20, 2015.
The only method of payment is online via debit/credit card (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express).
ASB fees vary per trip and range from $75 - $450. The fee covers transportation, lodging and three basic meals a day for the week.
Upon confirmation of an air travel trip, the OSV will make arrangements with the University travel agency to book plane tickets for the group. Airplane tickets will be booked under each individual's name and are non-refundable and non-transferable and if canceled, may incur additional fees. If you are selected for an air travel trip, payment will be due in full by 5:00pm, November 20, 2015. Failure to submit payment by the deadline will forfeit your participation.
Payment for general registration/ van trips will be due at the moment of trip registration on December 2.
Please ensure that you can commit to the ASB program before registering. All ASB fees are non-refundable.
