Cedar Crest College Credits
The Wildlife Leadership Academy works with Cedar Crest College to offer three (3) college credits to students who attend field school and fulfill all the necessary requirements. In order to obtain these credits, students must:
Attend the full duration of field school
Complete the pre- and post-tests and daily quizzes (conducted at the field school)
Submit the College Credit Registration Form AND payment after field school (We will follow up with you)
In order to seek college credit, you must return the College Credit Interest Form with your other paperwork. If this form is not received with your paperwork, you will not be eligible for college credits.
You will not be eligible to receive the college credits. TheCollege Credit Interest Form must be sent to us, indicating that you would like to pursue the college credit option with the rest of your paperwork.
The total cost is $1,824.00, payable by check to Cedar Crest College. Payment will be requested after the field school along with the submission of your College Credit Registration Form and must be sent by no later than August 25th.
No. But, you are required to send the College Credit Interest Form back by the April 16 deadline to have your name on the roster in order to receive credits. If you decide later that you no longer want to pursue the college credit option, you do not have to send the tuition payment. You may simply notify us and we will mark you as having “withdrawn.” There is no cost or grade associated with a withdraw denotation.
