What is the Risk Liability Waiver?
The Risk Liablity Waiver is a form, cautioning parents and/or guardians of risks involved in participation with Siblings Weekend 2016. The Risk Liability Waiver is available at Registration Check-In or you can download it here and send it with your child if you are not bringing them. Please speak with your CMU student as to how they should handle an emergency, if one were to arise.

In order for every participant to take part in all that Siblings Weekend has to offer, a parent or guardian must sign a risk liability waiver for every participant in your party. By signing the bottom portion of the risk liability waiver, you are claiming responsibility for your personal well being as well as any other participants in your party. CMU students can sign this form but should understand that they agree to take on any responsibility for their siblings. This form can be found here.

 

How do I know I successfully registered?
Upon completion of the registration process, you will be directed to a confirmation invoice. A link to this invoice will also be sent to the email address that you put on the form. If you ever have any questions about registration or any part of Siblings Weekend, pleases have the invoice available so we are able to serve you better.

 

Parent Registration?
We are happy to offer everyone a chance to experience CMU Siblings Weekend, however our events are tailored to students and their sibs. To help offset the cost of the seat that a parent may take up at, we charge per parent, a $20.00 registration fee that does NOT include a shirt, bag, or special event ticket.
