Program Participation & Registration

IMPORTANT POLICY NOTE: In an effort to keep all participants as safe and healthy as possible, we will be following all North Carolina Health Department guidelines regarding mask wearing, social distancing, and vaccinations as they are relevant to our planned activities. If you are planning to participate, please plan to follow the protocols that are in place at the time of any particular event.

Day and Regional Trip Registration

Enrollment space for LLC day trips and regional travel programs is limited to the capacity of our motor coach, the availability of tickets and other booking factors associated with group admissions. To reserve a place on any of these trips, ALL fees must be paid at the time of registration. Early registration is highly recommended as the trips tend to “sell out” very quickly.

To register and pay fees online, visit our website at From the left column select “Registration and Tickets,” then scroll down the page until you find the event that interests you. Follow the instructions to enter your payment information.

If you have questions about the online process, or would prefer to register by telephone or send payment by check, please call us at 252-638-7351 for assistance. Our office hours are Monday to Thursday, 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Fridays, 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

USA Adventures and International Travel

Registration deposits, fees and final payments for out-of-state or out-of-country travel where the LLC contracts with a tour company will follow a payment schedule specific to each trip. Many of the payments for these trips are paid directly to one of our group travel partners. Rules for refunds and the specific details for each trip will be posted on our website.

Please note that Craven Community College requires that each person participating in an extended trip must sign a liability waiver and purchase cancellation and post-departure emergency insurance. We offer a reasonably priced option with each trip that can be purchased though our travel partners. Participants who have other travel insurance coverage may opt out of our offer, but they are required to provide Craven Community College with proof of insurance that specifically documents insurance coverage equivalent to our minimum standards.

Refund Policy

Tickets or registrations purchased for Explorations in the Arts events or our Performance Day Trips are not refundable. However, the tickets and registrations are transferable. If you are unable to attend an event that you have paid for, you are welcome to share your tickets or transfer the registration to another person.

One-to-five-day trip registration fees are not refundable. There are a few exceptions: 1) the predetermined minimum enrollment is not met, and the trip is canceled by the LLC due to low enrollment; or 2) the college, or the performance, or exhibit venue determines that due to threatening weather or unsafe conditions we must cancel a trip or performance. No refunds will be offered if a new date is selected and the program is completed as advertised. If we are not able to offer an alternative date, then a refund will be issued.

There are no refunds offered for any program after an event has occurred. A refund of fees to a registered participant will only occur when a cancellation is made in advance of the event AND a replacement from the waiting list registers for an open spot. We understand that “life happens,” so please contact us as soon as possible if last-minute circumstances arise. We often have an extensive waiting list and we will attempt to fill a spot if we are notified.
