Student Travel

Gulf Coast offers our students many different travel opportunities so you will be able to explore destinations near and far. The cost of travel varies depending on the trip, but those in Student Life work hard to make sure you get the most cost-effective experiences. Trips are open to all students who are enrolled in at least six credit hours and have a 2.0 GPA. Registration is on a first come, first served basis.


What is intramural travel? It is travel that has no "educational" benefit and are just for FUN. These trips include athletic activities such as a canoe trip on the Econfina river, a boat ride to Shell Island and visiting the Marianna Caverns. Additionally, we provide opportunities to attend various sporting events and theme parks.
