Transportation

From time to time, the university may elect to provide university-sponsored transportation for certain events such as educational events, field trips, athletic events and competitions. When university transportation is provided and a student elects not to take university-sponsored transportation, that student is solely responsible for reviewing in advance (and accepting) any risks such transportation might pose, including but not limited to the safety of the location, condition of the vehicle, and skill and decision-making of any drivers. The university is not responsible or liable for any damage or injuries that may occur in their private vehicle or any other non-university-owned, rented or leased vehicle.

The university does not offer students transportation to the airport; however, there are third-party shuttles which offer affordable rates.
