Agreement and Release of Liability
This is a release of legal rights. Read carefully and understand before signing.
This form is to be signed in conjunction with the Assumption of Risk form.

The undersigned registrant (and his or her legal guardian if the registrant is less than 18 years of age), represents and agrees as follows:

1. The registrant has voluntarily enrolled in a travel-study program outside the city of Moorhead and has made a deposit that has been paid to cooperating agencies or organizations to apply against the costs of transportation, housing, and other goods and services to be arranged for the registrant by the cooperating agencies and/or organizations.

2. THE REGISTRANT IS AWARE THAT THE USE OF TRANSPORTATION, HOUSING, DINING SERVICES, AND OTHER GOODS AND SERVICES IN CONNECTION WITH PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM CARRIES A RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY AND PROPERTY DAMAGE OR LOSS. THE REGISTRANT EXPRESSLY AND VOLUNTARILY ASSUMES ALL RISK OF INJURY AND PROPERTY DAMAGE OR LOSS THAT MAY RESULT FROM THE PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM AND USE OF THE GOODS AND SERVICES DESCRIBED ABOVE.

3. The college agrees to carry out the program as specified in the program announcement. As consideration for being permitted for participation in the program, the registrant hereby RELEASES AND DISCHARGES the college, and their officers, directors, faculty, agents, employees and legal representatives (“the Released Parties”) from any liability, injury, damage, or loss ARISING OUT OF THE ARRANGEMENT OR PROVISION OF TRANSPORTATION, HOUSING, DINING OR OTHER GOODS AND SERVICES or arising out of any other activity incident to the registrant’s participation in the program, including any losses CAUSED BY NEGLIGENCE of the released parties. I do not release the college from liability for willful or intentional acts of punitive damages.

4. The registrant also agrees NOT TO SUE OR MAKE A CLAIM AGAINST THE RELEASE PARTIES for injury, damage, or loss sustained as a result of participation in the program and use of the goods or services described above. The registrant will indemnify and hold harmless the released parties from all claims, judgments, and costs, including attorney’s fees, incurred in connection with any action. The registrant also agrees to reimburse the college for any sums the college may advance for purchase of goods or services on behalf of the registrant in connection with the registrant’s participation in the program.

5. The registrant further agrees to abide by all applicable rules and regulations of the college, and the laws of the governmental jurisdictions at the place or places of program offering. The registrant agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the released parties from all claims or losses resulting from the registrant’s failure to abide by such rules and laws.

That by executing and signing this agreement, I attest to the fact that I have read this agreement and release of liability form carefully and understand the contents of this document, and have had the opportunity to ask questions as to the nature of the document I have signed. I sign this document of my own free will.
