Cost & Payment




Through the generous support of our alumni, need-based scholarships are available.
In order to be eligible for scholarship consideration, students must register, deposit, and complete the scholarship application before May 15.
Registering and depositing by the May 15 deadline does not guarantee a scholarship.
Scholarship requests will be evaluated after the deadline and offers will be made in early June. The amount of the award varies based on financial background and the needs of students, but recent awards have ranged anywhere from $200 to 50% of the cost of the program. 
Completing the LandSea Registration, paying the Deposit, and submitting the Scholarship Application are the pieces necessary to be considered for a scholarship.

Payment plans are available to those who apply for scholarships (regardless of whether you receive one). Setting up a payment plan allows for the trip fee to be paid over 6 monthly payments (July - December). If you apply for a scholarship, you will receive information about setting up a payment plan in your May billing for LandSea. Payment plans must be set-up by July 1 in order to make the first payment due July 15.

Payment Schedule

June 15 - Optional first payment (for those who wish to break up the cost over two payments)

July 15 - Final Payment and All Paperwork DUE
