Program Costs

The School for Field Studies (SFS) funds our programs through a combination of program revenue, grants, and donations. Our program fees cover room and board, program-related ground, domestic air and boat transportation, park entrance fees, field equipment, supplies, orientation, and pre- and post-program advisory services. Total Program Cost does not include transportation to and from the program.

Full tuition is due ninety (90) days prior to program commencement for a semester or summer program. You will not be allowed to participate in the program with an outstanding tuition balance. For applicants who apply within 90 days of the program, tuition is due upon receipt of the invoice.

Note:
Program costs for the coming academic year starting in the fall will be updated in the preceding spring of that calendar year.

In addition to tuition charges, please also consider the following to determine the total cost of your participation:

  • 1. Travel arrangements;
  • 2. Clothing and equipment;
  • 3. Physical examination, immunizations, and medical insurance;
  • 4. Personal expenses (i.e., semester program break);
  • 5. Passport and Visa (You must have a passport that is valid for at least six months after the program ends.)

 

SFS strives to make study abroad affordable. Please visit our Financial Aid and Scholarships page for more information on need-based scholarships, grants, and loans.
