TRIP PREFERENCE: Which part of the trip are you looking forward to the most?
All trips combine backpacking and canoeing. However, some trips spend an extended amount of time in one activity. Your trip preference may help us place you on a trip that matches your preference, when possible.
What type of LandSea trip experience are you registering for?
What level of physical difficulty are you looking for?
The fee for LandSea includes a $100 non-refundable advance deposit and covers transportation, food during the program and all expenses except for personal gear.

For those who apply and qualify for a need-based scholarship, a limited amount of funds are available and will be awarded based on a student's paperwork filed with the College's Financial Aid Office.  The majority of scholarships are awarded to students who qualify at the highest need levels.  Announcements regarding scholarship awards will be sent out in a mailing in late-May.

In order to be eligible for LandSea, you must:

1) Be admitted to the college and have paid the enrollment deposit to the Office of Admission for fall quarter.

2) Complete and submit this registration along with a $100 non-refundable deposit.

Registrations received without a deposit will not be considered until payment has been confirmed. This deposit will be returned if we cannot accept your registration.

If you have any questions, please contact the LandSea office at or (269) 337-7357.
100% of donations to LandSea are used toward scholarships for students with significant financial need.
