Students in the bachelor's degree programs who choose to take the three-credit Global Cuisines and Cultures (GCC) course as one of their liberal arts electives will be charged this fee. The amount of the fee is subject to change based on seasonal costs and exchange rates at the time of booking. Rates will be announced prior to registration for the course and currently average $5,000 per trip. The fee may be partially offset if the student applies for and is awarded a CIA International Studies Grant.
Students who take the Global Cuisines and Cultures trip outside of their program—meaning it does not satisfy any requirements toward their degree—will be charged the full fee and will not be eligible to receive any financial aid funds to cover the cost of the trip. Also, their overall cost of attendance will not be increased.
