Valley City State University defines an academic field trip as:

  • A faculty supervised activity
  • An activity that is listed in the syllabus
  • Travel that is a required part of a class
  • Travel that occurs outside of the regular classroom location
  • A course related activity
  • Travel that includes an education purpose
  • The duration may be during the class period or longer

Faculty will submit AA-22 Faculty Field Trip Request Form for such activities.  The form is located in BlackBoard under My Web Applications titled Field Trip Authorization V480.01.
