The program fee is $4500 and includes transportation and meals, as well as camping, park entrance, and excursion fees. Tuition, which is not included in the program fee, will depend on the number of hours for which you register and the year you matriculated at UGA. Refer to tuition information from the Office of the Registrar. Participants will have to supply some camping gear and educational supplies (a list will be provided). Optional activities and meals on days off (and snacks purchased at gas stations) are not included in the program fees. Scholarships and student loans may be available for continuing UGA students through the Office of Student Financial Aid.
All UGA fees are explained by the Bursars Office. Be aware of the special Institutional fee, which is $450. All other on-campus fees are waived, except the Technology fee. Georgia Hope Scholarships can be applied if you qualify. See the Hope Scholarship website for more information.
All Participants are expected to register for a minimum of 15 credit hours.
The application deadline for the next season is February 28, 2013. Participants will be notified of their acceptance the first week of March. Any student who applies prior to the deadline will be notified of his/her status earlier, once the application is complete. We will continue to accept students until full. Please contact us to find out if we still have space available.
To ensure participation, all applicants accepted into the program must meet the following schedule of payment:
- By March 15th, an initial deposit of $500.
- By May 15th, the final fee payment (balance of all program fees).
- We ask that you register for classes and pay tuition by May 15th.
Since the UGA-IFP obtains its funding from student fees, and many of our accommodations require early deposits, late withdrawals jeopardize the program for all participants. Consequently, we will not refund fees already paid unless another qualified applicant can be found.
All fees should be paid through your student account to the Bursar's Office at the University of Georgia.
