Planning for the Spring 2002 Trip

Costs, Payment, and Financial Aid

The cost of the trip is $3,400. That figure covers all transportation and housing costs, all class field trips, and per diem stipends adequate for meals and entrance fees.

Financial aid is available. The Student Academic Assistance Committee (SAAC) makes decisions about financial aid based on both financial need and merit. Students applying for financial aid must: (1) have on file in the Financial Aid Office a FAFSA form (the form to apply for financial aid during the regular academic year), (2) submit to the Office of Academic Affairs by Monday September 17 a "Financial Need Evaluation Form" (this one is specifically for study abroad in the spring term), and (3) submit to the Office of Acadmic Affairs an "academic data sheet" and a "statement of academic merit . . . describing their particular qualifications and the benefits they will realize by taking this course."

In the "evaluation of merit," the SAAC gives consideration to: "(1) academic history, including cumulative GPA and class (senior, junior, etc.); (2) curricular background, work experience, and particular skills relevant to success in the course; (3) the significance of the course experience for the student's academic and/or career interest; (4) the quality of the written statement itself." (from Program Guidelines, Financial Need Evaluation 06/29/01)
