Incoming students are required to send a $200 nonrefundable deposit with their application. This will appear as a "semester payment" credit on the first College bill after the completion of the Expedition


REFUND POLICY
The activity fee of $830 for PED016 or the incurred fees due to dropping PED016 will be charged to the first College bill after the completion of the expedition. Since most of the expenses are incurred in preparation for the course, the following graduated fee policy has been set:

  • Dropping PED016 30-60 days before the trip incurs a $200 late-drop fee.
  • Dropping PED016 8-29 days before the trip incurs a $300 late-drop fee.
  • Failure to arrive for a confirmed space or dropping PED016 within 7 days of the trip incurs a late-drop fee of the full expedition price.

Please note: To drop PED016, a Drop Form must be signed by Rich Obenschain in the La Vida Office and then submitted to the Registrar's Office. 

If you are off campus due to summer break, you must provide the La Vida Office and Registrar's Office written notification of your intention to drop, and receive confirmation that the drop request was accepted. Incoming students must notify both Admissions and the La Vida Center and also receive confirmation in order to drop the course.  Send notification in the form of a letter or email. Students who do not notify both offices will incur a failure-to-arrive late-drop fee of $830.
