Educational Travel

You can register for a trip in the same way you would for a class. Register online by going to; call (209) 575-6063 and register by phone with a Visa, MasterCard or Discover credit card; or come in person to our office in the Morris Administration Building, Room 104. Travel/Trip details will be provided in a letter to registered participants 7-10 days before the trip. Buses normally depart from the MJC West Campus, but MJC reserves the right to make any necessary changes in departure place and times. The departure location will be listed in the letter you receive from our office.

Modesto Junior College (MJC) reserves the right to make changes to itineraries of equal or greater value as deemed necessary. We cannot reimburse clients for items in the tour that they elect to not participate in.

MJC will not be liable for delays, bad conditions of the Rd., storms, acts of God, public enemies, strikes, acts of terrorism, and other conditions beyond its control.

All off-campus extracurricular field trips/excursions are voluntary. If you choose to participate, be advised that pursuant to the California Code of regulations, subchapter 5, section 55450, you agree to hold the district, its officers, agents and employees harmless from any and all liability or claims which may arise out of or in connection with your participation.

Rating Our Trips

You have asked for an indication as to how much walking each trip will entail.  We have tried to rate our trips with the following symbols:

2 feetMODERATE:  May require a large amount of walking, usually in either the morning or the afternoon.

3 feetEXTENDED:  Will involve walking much of the day.
