Summer Field Credit and Enrollment

Participants in the Summer Field Course earn six semester hours of credit from the University of Wyoming. Upon payment of tuition and fees, students will be enrolled in Geology 4717. Course credit will be from the University of Wyoming.

The University of Wyoming is fully accredited and the Department is highly acclaimed for its robust, field-oriented program. The course is normally limited to 30 students. Typically, more than half of the students will be University of Wyoming geology majors. Tuition is assessed for all students at the "Wyoming resident" rate--a real bargain for non-resident students.

Non UW applicants will be accepted on the basis of academic excellence and potential for professional development as indicated by their application and letters. Applicants are encouraged to include contacts for recommendations and a paragraph detailing particular qualifications and interests. Early applications are encouraged due to limitations on the number of students to be accepted. Applications are normally processed within three weeks. Applicants notified of acceptance must submit a non refundable pre-payment of $100 to hold a spot in the class. Course enrollment will be limited to approximately 30 students in order to maintain a favorable student-to-faculty ratio (approximately 7:1).
