*** Due to regulations set in place by The Galapagos National Park Directorate (GNPD) and the Ecuadorian Ministry of Tourism it is required that we confirm your spot on the boat by early October. Therefore, BY PAYING THE PROGRAM DEPOSIT you are confirming your spot on the trip and committing to pay the entire program cost. The program deposit of $500 is due BY OCTOBER 4, 2017. These stipulations supersede the CGE withdrawal policy. ***

Shortly after your term bill is released, your deposit will be credited to your Rutgers student account and you will be responsible for any remaining payments (less any *financial aid or scholarship).

The above estimated total expenses are intended to help plan and prepare for the program.  Total expenses will vary by student and are subject to change depending on currency fluctuation, past-participant reports, university recommendations, and personal spending habits. Not all students will incur all the expenses above. Please contact the Center for Global Education about estimated expenses as well as ways to reduce expenses while abroad.

If you will be awarded scholarships, grants, or financial aid through Rutgers, these awards will be posted to your student account according to the normal disbursement schedule after you confirm your attendance. Some non-billable items may be due prior to the release of your semester bill and your financial aid, so students should be prepared to pay these expenses in advance.
