Cancellation, Refund, and Transfer Policy

All trip balances are due prior to the pre-trip meeting. Notice of registration cancellation must be in writing one (1) business day prior to the registration deadline in order to receive a refund. Refunds will be less 20% of the full registration fee as a cancellation fee. No refunds will be issued after the registration deadline. Requests to transfer from one trip to another will be considered a cancellation.

The Outdoor Adventures Center reserves the right to cancel all or part of a trip or program due to inclement weather, below minimum participation, force majeure, or any other circumstances beyond our control. In the event that a trip or program is canceled, efforts will be made to reschedule or refund the trip at the discretion of the UNL Outdoor Adventure program.

Medical Cancellation
In the event of a cancellation due to medical reasons and upon receipt of a written statement from a doctor attesting to your inability to participate in the trip, Outdoor Adventures will retain 10% of the full registration fee or $10.00, whichever is greater, as a cancellation fee. The remaining balance will be returned as a refund.
