First-Year Students: Your trip assignments are now available to view! Please read this whole page of important information about your trip assignment (also sent to you via email) before viewing your trip assignment on the registration site.
If you would like to submit a late registration or have any other questions, please email us at DOC.Trips@dartmouth.edu or call us at (603) 646-3996!
We are SO thrilled you've decided to go on a trip and we cannot wait to meet you this fall. With your arrival to Hanover in just a few weeks, we hope you are looking forward to joining the Dartmouth community and making it your own.
You can log in (with your NetID & Password) to our registration site to see which trip and section you have been assigned to. Before looking at your trip assignment, please read this page in its entirety. The information below is extremely important and answers the most common questions incoming students have about their trip.
Your trip assignment will include both a section (A-J) and a trip type (Hiking 1, Flatwater Kayaking, Adventure Quest, etc.). The trip type is denoted by a number. The specific section you have been assigned to is very important as it indicates:
We have done our very best to assign each of you to one of your desired trip types on a trip section that works well with your schedule. Every effort was made to honor your top preferences, however, because we have a limited set of trips on every section, we were not always able to meet everyone's first choice. We have worked (and continue to work) very hard to make sure that every trip type is an outstanding experience -- so we promise you will find enjoyment on whatever trip you're assigned to!
Changing Your Trip:
**If your schedule has changed and you can no longer attend the section we have assigned you, please contact us ASAP. We want you to participate in a first-year trip, so we will do everything in our power to make participating a reality.
As noted above, we did our best to assign each incoming student to a trip they are excited about. However, given the size of the program, it is almost impossible to change your trip type unless there is a specific circumstance that will impact your participation (i.e. medical condition, accessibility needs, etc.). We work closely with Dartmouth's Student Accessibility Services office and we're committed to providing accommodations for your accessibility needs. Please contact us to let us know what you need and we will gladly adjust your trip as necessary. All information will be kept confidential.
On your trip assignment page, you will see the cost of your DOC First-Year Trip (this includes the additional cost of DOC membership, your bus assignment, and any Green Fund donations -- if you elected to participate in any of those) and whether you are receiving financial assistance. The cost will automatically be billed to your College account and will show up on your financial statement during fall term. Thus, you DO NOT need to send us direct payment (credit card information, etc.). Financial assistance will be deducted from the cost of your trip and will be reflected on your statement. If the cost of your DOC Trip is still a barrier for you, please contact us as soon as possible and we can work something out!
Equipment & Packing List
With your trip assignment, you will see a packing list designed specifically for your trip. Please review the following steps to ensure you are prepared for your trip:
Alright, now that you've made it through all those important instructions and details (thank you!!), here's the link you've been waiting for! You can view your trip assignment by going to http://doc-trips.herokuapp.com/incoming/ and logging in with your NetID and password. If you are unable to access your trip assignment, please contact us immediately.
We know this is a LOT of information to process, so feel free to contact us with any questions. Please note that we are doing the best we can to balance the needs and requests of over 1000 incoming students, so we appreciate your flexibility and patience throughout this process. We ask that you mark your calendar with the dates of your assigned trip; it's important that you make your travel and move-in plans with the start date of your DOC Trip in mind. **If your schedule prevents you from participating in your assigned trip, please contact us ASAP and we can assign you to a different section that works for you.
Going on a DOC Trip will be one of your first experiences at Dartmouth and we are so thrilled (and humbled) to be part of that. Whether you spend your trip kayaking on the Connecticut River, exploring the Dartmouth Organic Farm, fishing in the Second College Grant, or hiking in the White Mountains, we hope you are feeling excited and prepared for the trip we've assigned you.
On behalf of the 350+ student volunteers who are working hard to make DOC Trips a success, welcome to Dartmouth and see you this fall!
