B. Students traveling in a university vehicle outside the Aiken, Augusta or Columbia area must be accompanied by a member of the USCA faculty, staff or administration and that person's name must appear on the Form 13/20. Any exception to this policy must be approved by the Vice Chancellor for Student Life and Services.
