J-term 2018 Study/Travel Courses

Please check this site frequently – it is the most accurate source of information and is updated frequently! 

A $100 non-refundable deposit is required for registration; at the same time, students must also submit a signed (student's signature) add-form to the Registrar’s Office to be added to the course.  

The $100 will be applied to the 50% deposit due by August 1 (unless an earlier deadline was established by the instructor). In the event the student changes to another study/travel course, the $100 deposit can be transferred to the new course unless funds have already been spent by the first instructor.  

You also need to obtain the instructor’s signature for the courses that have an asterisk (*) before the title or "permission of the instructor."

If you are enrolled in courses traveling together, you only pay one travel fee.
