Signing up for TREK

  1. Register Online.
    Registration for TREK programs is on a first-come, first-served basis and program spaces fill up quickly! We recommend registering as early as possible to ensure your preferred program.  You will need your netID and password to access the system - if you do not have this account set up or need to reset your password you must do so by contacting account services. We do not have access to netID information.

    Registration for TREK 2018 will open in Early May

  2. Pay Program Fees.
    We accept payments by check or credit card; If you are interested, you can read more about Financial Support in the TREK program.
  3. Get Your Packing Lists and Itinerary.
    Once you've registered you will recieve a confirmation email with a list of your next steps - including links to packing lists and details about check-in. These lists are available to view at anytime online.


The cost of participating in TREK varies according to the type of trip you choose. Additional program costs reflect the demand for specialized group equipment. More expensive options are in no way proportional to the amount of fun and experiential value that all TREK programs offer! Fees include all food, lodging, transportation, group gear usage, watercraft rental (where applicable), instruction, a t-shirt, and administrative costs.  Payment is expected at the time of registration via cash or credit card.  Students applying for financial aid must submit a deposit of at least $100.

Cancellations made before the registration deadline will be fully refunded. Cancellations made between July 2nd and July 16th will be refunded 50%. After July 20th, refunds are not guaranteed and only granted at the discretion of the TREK directors and our ability to fill vacated spaces.

Cancellations of registrations made by credit card will be refunded less a 3% credit card processing fee.
