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 2023 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 2024, 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. 
    • There are specific scholarship programs for first-generation students.

Next steps:

  • Each applicant will receive their FYJ trip fee information with trip assignments by July 12 at the latest. The earlier you register the sooner you will know your fee. Additional resources for financial support will be available at that time.
