FYJ Trip Cost

Adventures cost money and FYJ is worth it!

We're committed to ensuring that cost is not a barrier for anyone who wants to participate in FYJ. Our goal is to provide equitable opportunities for all students, while still having the program remain financially sustainable.


 Financial Information:

As an optional pre-orientation program, FYJ’s are not part of student tuition, and paid for separately. They’re a significant investment from the University, both in terms of leadership, equipment and overhead, but also in making the trips happen. Accommodations, food, outfitters, supplies and transportation all cost money. 52% of our past 2022 FYJ participants received a partial or full fee waiver, with 15 students attending for zero cost.

Cost details:

  • Trip fees for FYJ will range from $0 - $495 for the week, which includes all accommodations, travel, food, equipment rentals and activity costs.
  • For 2023, each student’s trip fee will be determined by their financial aid package, FASFA and Estimated Family Contribution (EFC).
  • Students will automatically be considered for a full or partial fee waiver based on their financial situation. 

Next steps:

  • Each applicant will receive their FYJ trip fee information with trip assignments on July 15th. Additional resources for financial support will be available at that time.
  • Find your adventure and preview the trips!
