In order to secure your place in a field school, a $500 nonrefundable deposit payment is required. However, you can pay the deposit payment only after your application was approved by the field school director. The tuition cost for your field school will cover your expenses in the field and the 8 semester credit units through Connecticut College. Cost of travel to and from your field school meeting point is not covered. Most – but not all – field schools require that you pay for your own food during weekends (when students are away from the site and its kitchen facilities). Personal expenses (such as gifts to family & friends, phone calls, etc.) are not covered by your tuition payment. Payments differ by program.
Payments may be made by check, cashier check or our online payment system. Paystubs for check payments are required and will be provided during the enrollment process. If you choose to pay by check, please make your check payable to the “Institute for Field Research” and write your program name on the memo line.
The IFR accepts all major credit cards and there is a 2% service fee charged for all credit card transactions. Final payment for your Tuition is due by April 2.
Financial aid recipients who have submitted all financial aid documents by the appropriate deadlines are exempt from the final payment deadline.
Financial aid recipients must pay their program balance in full at least ten (10) days prior to the program start date.
