Field School Fees and Scholarships

Enrollment in Anthropology Field School requires payment of Summer Session fees plus a program fee.


The Summer Sessions office administers a tuition fee for Summer courses, with separate charges for UC Davis and non-UC Davis students. Out-of-state tuition is waved for all field school students. Total cost includes tuition, field supplies, food, lodging, and all transportation between Davis and the field site:

 UC StudentNon-UC Student
Course Fee:$279 x 4 units = $1,116$374 x 4 units = $1,496
Campus Fee:$388.81$388.81
Program Fee (food, transport,etc.)*:$1,100$1,100

*The program fee is an estimate and may change slightly until the time of billing. We do our utmost to keep this charge as low as possible. It includes room and board for the entire duration of the field school, transportation to the field school from UC Davis, field equipment, and other supplies.

More information on Summer Session tuition and fees can be found here. Students may be eligible for financial aid for summer tuition. To receive summer financial aid, students must enroll in at least 6 units total during the summer. Students can therefore enroll in 2 additional field research units under ANT 198  (in addition to the 4 unit ANT 181L field course). Note that financial aid can only be used to cover the course and campus fees but not the other field-related fees. Please consult with the ANT advising office to discuss this further. More information on financial aid can be found here.

Tuition for summer sessions field courses is NOT REFUNDABLE. You will be billed and remain liable for fees even if you withdraw or cancel your enrollment in Summer Sessions Field School.
