Global Field Study Fees
How much does the Field Study cost, and what is included?
The cost of each field study varies, depending on the location and length of the travel component. Most field study fees fall in the range of $2,000-$2,500, though some cost more and others slightly less. Items commonly included in the field study fee are airfare, accommodations, in-country ground transportation, and all tours, lectures and group activities. Other cost details specific to your field study location will be shared by your faculty leader.
How will I be asked to pay for the Field Study?
Please note that the field study is considered to be a special fee, and is charged on top of your regular tuition for the GFS course. The special fee for your course will be announced no later than the first class meeting. You will be informed at that time of the number of payments required, with payment deadlines that are specific to your course. The payment deadlines will be based on when we must pay the airlines and other vendors for costs related to your field study. Payments can be made online as you would pay any Arcadia bill, or you may pay by check at the One Stop Shop. All payments are non-refundable once each payment deadline has passed. Exception: In the case of total cancellation of your field study program by the University, all fees will be refunded to all participants.
