  • Final payments are due three (3) weeks after the deposit.
  • All students enrolled in a short-term field course are subject to the Global Education Office Withdraw and Refund Policy (pdf).

Financial Aid

  • Fully enrolled students who receive need-based financial aid from Hampshire College are eligible to apply for financial assistance through the global education office (GEO). Please follow the instructions in your HampGOES online application.
  • Hampshire alums, Hampshire students who will have graduated before the dates of the course, and non-Hampshire students are not eligible for aid through the global education office.
  • Any financial aid awarded by GEO will be applied directly to the program fee. 
  • Students are expected to cover all additional expenses, including airfare.
  • Awards vary from year to year and are dependent on the number of applicants and the amount of aid available.
  • Eligibility for financial assistance does not guarantee that aid will be awarded.
