Step 2: Enroll and pay a deposit.
Once you have chosen your expedition, either select ENROLL on the website, or call us toll free at (855)-802-0307. You will be asked to complete a short questionnaire and submit a $500 deposit. This deposit includes a $150 non-refundable processing fee. Please read through our Attending Outward Bound document so that you understand the our policies.
Step 3: Look for an email from your Course Advisor.
Once you have completed Steps 1 & 2 above, one of our Admissions staff will send you a Registration Email within a couple of business days – look for an email from someone with an @hiobs.org address (sometimes these emails get lost in your JUNK folder).
Your registration email will contain a link to your Course Page which has important information about your course, including the Medical Form, Applicant Profile, Commitment to Excellence, and other forms that are important for you to complete, as well as a complete step-by-step guide for our Admissions Process. If you have difficulties downloading the forms, contact your Course Advisor immediately and we will help you out.
Step 4: Send us your completed forms ASAP.
Complete all the required forms outlined in your registration email and submit to us by email, mail or fax within 5 business days (sometimes less, if you sign up close to Course Start).
We will review your forms, and if we have follow up questions, we will contact you by phone or email. If you have asthma, allergies, orthopedic concerns, take any medications or have any other followup needed please be ready to complete further questionnaires. It is our objective to get you cleared for course as quickly as possible, and we appreciate your help!
After the paperwork is taken care of, we schedule an interview with the student.
Step 5: Pay for your course.
Your full course tuition is due on or before 90 days before your course start date. Please be sure to complete the Payment of Fees form in the Enrollment paperwork. You are also able to PAY ONLINE. Refer to your Welcome Email provided by your course advisor for your course number and your tuition balance.
Step 6: Get ready for course!
Start preparing mentally and physically for your course. You don't have to be a world-class athlete to complete an Outward Bound course. In fact, most of our courses are designed for the average person who is looking for a physical, mental and social challenge. Still, your level of physical readiness will affect your experience. Learn more about what's required and how you can better prepare yourself for your personal challenge by reading Attending Outward Bound, watching the video below, and following the physical and mental preparedness guidelines here.
