Reis summer courses have an associated $250 field fee that pays for food, transportation and field supplies during the 3-week session. 
Seats in all three courses are reserved in the order that deposits are received.  To hold your reservation, you must remit a non-refundable $50 deposit that will be credited toward the field fee; we will accept deposits in cash only.

Dr. Valone (MWH 130) will begin accepting deposits at 1:00 pm on Thursday, October 15.
The remainder of the field fee (again, cash only) will be due in the spring semester, no later than April 1, 2016, and must be submitted to Dr. Valone.  Refunds will not be made after your deposit and field fee are received; be sure to read carefully the course descriptions and general information about the field station on the Field Courses page. You will register for the RBS courses during regular spring enrollment period; Dr. Valone will send you registration instructions.
