Before you fill out an application please make sure you have read & understand all course information on this website including this page.
Most universities accept this course for academic credit, however students must confirm with their university and/or department that credits will transfer appropriately for their degree. This course is open to students from all majors, years of study, & universities. We value a diversity of student demographics as it adds to the uniqueness of our courses! Interested students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible as qualified applicants are accepted on a rolling basis. There is NO set deadline to apply as we accept applications until courses fill. If a course fills we will post an announcement on this page. Students are welcome to take this course without seeking academic credit.
A fully refundable $50 application fee is required upon application and paid at the end of the application through Paypal. This fee is applied to course tuition if accepted or 100% refunded if not accepted. If a student is accepted and then declines acceptance, EcoFS issues a 50% refund of the application fee. Typically about 75% of students who apply are accepted. Upon acceptance students receive online access to further course info, equipment list, registration info etc. Applicants must be 18 years or older by the course start day to apply. EcoFS does not have specific correct answers/criteria for application questions & advise that the most important tip is to answer honestly & thoughtfully.
