What are Alternative January Break Trips?

An Alternative January Break trip has the same structure as one of our Alternative Spring Break trips. This experience happens in the winter during the university's January break. It will be considered on a year by year basis according to the academic calendar. Alternative January Break will follow the same schedule as Alternative Thanksgiving Break trips for information sessions, online sign ups, and the lottery process. Keep an eye on the events section of the homepage for updates.

There are currently no January Break Trips listed, but check back later this year as more are being developed all the time.


Current estimates for domestic driving trips are $250-300 for the week which includes all of your food, housing and transportation.

Domestic flying trips/international trips can vary due to the cost of airfare. Previous ranges have been $450-$1500. All flying trips will raise funds to help cut the costs of the trip. The total cost will include your food, housing, and transportation.
