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.

The deadlines for tuition, room & board payments due to SFS are as follows (effective beginning Spring 2017):

SFS Summer I or Combined: April 1st

SFS Summer II: April 30th

SFS Fall Programs: June 1st

SFS Spring Programs: October 30th

Students will receive an invoice from our billing department about 30 days prior to these deadlines via mail or email. You will not be allowed to participate in the program with an outstanding tuition balance. For applicants who apply after these deadlines, tuition is due upon receipt of the invoice.

Please note that these are not application deadlines and we will work with students on an individual basis if they apply to a session after these dates have passed.

If your home school will make these payments to SFS for you, you are not subject to these terms and deadlines. Your acceptance email will indicate whether or not you must make these payments to SFS.


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.
