The Summer Field Program costs approximately $7,000 per UC Berkeley undergraduate student. Costs are higher for non-UC Berkeley students and graduate students. Students are responsible for the following:

Unit Fees (11 units @ $406 per unit) $4466.00
ASUC Fee $147.00
Course Reader, Handouts, Equipment* $100.00
Total $4713.00

The remaining costs, approximately $2200 per student to cover food and lodging, are paid for students who are registered for the courses (ESPM 105A-D) by June 6, 2014. These costs are paid from our Schwabacher Endowment which is supported by generous donations from our alumni. Students registering after that date will need to pay the Program Fee to cover food and lodging. UC Berkeley students may be eligible for summer financial aid. For more information, please visit the Financial Aid Office's website for summer aid. Specific questions should be directed to Cal Student Central in 120 Sproul Hall or open a case online.

Students will be checked out equipment as groups or individuals for field exercises.  Students are responsible for maintaining this equipment and returning it to the GSIs.  Lost or damaged equipment must be replaced and final course grades will be withheld if lost or damaged equipment is not paid for.
