This course will count for GNED/ENGL 400, or Goal 13. We will be in Alaska from June 19-June 28th. After you return you will need to turn in your assignments via Canvas online.
Here are some cost details – (Scholarships are available!)
The trip costs are approximately $750 per person. That may be paid in multiple parts.
That includes your local travel (by minivan), transfer to and from the airport,
all lodging, almost all meals, use of classroom space, visits to local museums,
guest speakers and guides, etc.
Deposits are made to Cashiering using a special deposit slip that can be picked up from Dr.Pederson or Dr. Poplin. It is very, very important that you
keep your copy of your receipt in a
safe place so that any accounting errors can be corrected (and it
does happen, unfortunately).
2.You also must buy a plane ticket. That is
not included in the fee cited above. Ideally everyone would
travel from their home airport to Fairbanks, AK arriving on
Monday, 19 June, and leaving Fairbanks on
Monday, 28 June. Those tickets usually run about $500-
800, but in past years they have been both
higher and lower than that range.
3. Longwood will bill for the tuition credits separately.
Tuition and fees for Summer 2017 can be found
on the Cashiering and Student Accounts website
(http://www.longwood.edu/studentaccounts/tuition-fees/undergraduate/). It is useful to compare the costs for completing a course on campus during the
semester and in the less expensive off-campus mode during the summer. Compared to rates for the current academic year, the summer course is about $300
less in tuition and fees (VA in-state rate).
4. We will stay in University dorm rooms, and we will camp out
(3 nights), and we will stay in minimalist
hotels in Prudhoe Bay.
5. Except during your airport adventures to and from the Alaska, all breakfasts, lunches, snacks will be
6. You will need pocket money for most dinners, impulse snacks,
hot drinks, souvenirs, etc.
7. The deadline for the course application is March 17th
