Registering for a Global Field Course

Registration/Student Application and Enrollment Processes/Accessibility
Eastern Connecticut State University is committed to a policy of non-discrimination, equal opportunity and affirmative action for all persons regardless of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, national origin, marital or veteran status or disability. This policy is applicable to all employment practices, admission of students, programs and services to students, faculty, staff and the community. This policy is equally applicable to off-campus programs sponsored by Eastern, such as the course abroad programs.

Persons with a disability who desire to participate in a Global Field Courses (GFC) and who require accommodation should provide appropriate documentation to the faculty organizing the study tour program as soon as possible so that the availability and feasibility of accommodation abroad can be evaluated.

Application Process
Students apply to participate in a Global Field Course program by completing the forms on the Documents web page and submitting it to the faculty conducting the program, along with the required program deposit. It is the faculty member’s responsibility to determine if the applicant qualifies for the GFC by meeting all prerequisites, and is not involved in unresolved judicial matters.

Enrollment Process – Academic Courses
Students register for the Global Field Course program through the Office of the Registrar in the same manner they would register for any course offered in the same semester; Winter or Summer Session. All tuition and fees are payable to Eastern Connecticut State University.

The basis upon which a student may be denied enrollment in a GFC program includes but is not limited to: failure to maintain good academic standing, inadequate course prerequisites, or evidence of pending or resolved judicial proceedings.

Non-degree Student Enrollment/Participation
Eastern faculty receive frequent requests from non-students (i.e., spouse or friend of an enrolled student or participating faculty member) to participate in a Global Field Course program without enrolling in the academic coursework. Such enrollment is permitted on a space available basis and requires the permission of the faculty member(s) leading the program. Guests of the program must complete all required authorization and release forms and pay all costs associated with participation in the GFC program. In the case of family members accompanying faculty on GFC programs, it is noted that this should not interfere with the faculty member’s ability to fulfill all responsibilities associated with the program. In general, Eastern shall not admit any participants under age 16, unless accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
