Travel course programs vary in cost. The participant’s fee depends on the location they are traveling to, the duration of the program, number of paying participants, and provisions included in the program. For some courses, the program fee covers airfare, accommodations and most meals. For other courses, the program fee may cover accommodations, only breakfast, and some excursions. To assist students in their selection process, an online program brochure is created for each travel course offered. The program brochures detail what is included in the program fee and provides a cost range. When the final participant’s cost of the program is determined, it may not exceed the upper range. Tuition fees are not included in the travel course program fee.
Tuition costs are NOT included in the Travel Course Program Fee.
Undergraduate students who are registered full-time in both the fall and spring semesters (12-18 units taken in each semester is considered full-time for undergraduate students) may take up to four units during interterm at no charge. For a full-time undergraduate student, a Tuition Waiver is not required for tuition units received in January. This does not include Travel Course participation fees or lab fees.
A completed Tuition Waiver may submitted to the Student Business Services office located in Bhathal Student Services Building in order to be considered for the tuition waiver. The form can be found on Chapman’s Travel Course webpage.
Submitting the form does not guarantee approval for the Travel Course Tuition Waiver. Students must meet the eligibility requirements prescribed by the Student Business Services office.
Well before departure, we encourage you to discuss with your dependent their finances, how to create a budget and how to adhere to it. Each travel course participant should bring money to cover personal expenses and any other costs not included in the program fee. Expenses will vary depending on the student’s own standard of living and how much traveling, shopping, and dining out he or she does. The foreign currency exchange rate is also a factor to be considered.
