Activity Release, Waiver of Liability & Academic Travel Release Policy

Clarkson College values the multiple enrichment experiences that are offered and, in which, students will participate while enrolled in classes, school organizations, or College related student employment or scholarship programs. While participating in College related activities, students will be required to sign a student activity waiver form at the beginning of each academic year.
Students are expected to secure their own transportation to and from activities. Students are not allowed to transport any outside parties (i.e. clients, patients, or any individual they are working with) while participating in College related activities. Employees are advised not to transport students. In the event where a related College activity requires an employee to transport students, the College will provide transportation via a rental vehicle.

Procedure:

  1. Students will complete the activity release form on the web upon enrollment and at the start of each academic year before fall registration.
  2. A scheduled action email will be sent to all enrolled students prior to fall registration reminding them to complete the activities release form.
  3. The completed forms on the web will be automatically sent to the registrar’s office and a copy will also be sent to the student.
  4. The registrar’s office will input that the student form has been completed in powercampus.
  5. Before the student is authorized to register for fall courses the academic advisor will verify that the form is completed or they will see a stop in self service.
  6. A student will not be able to register for fall classes until the activities release form and all other stops are completed.
