Program Deposit

If offered a position in the program and you accept our offer, we require a $1,500 nonrefundable deposit. Please contact us if you need to spread this payment out over time. The deposit is directly applied to your first semester bill which is typically issued in early August.

MOSS Program Fee Tuition

The MOSS program fee tuition includes cost of instruction and field trips during the residency at the McCall Field Campus. The residency begins in mid-August and ends the following August. If you or your advisor have external educational and/or grant funding, this may be used to pay the MOSS program fee tuition if allowable by the funding source.

MOSS Housing and Food Service

MOSS housing and food service is available during the fall and spring semesters. There are two housing options and the fee varies based on housing choice. The two-semester fee for a double occupancy yurt with shared bath facilities is $450. The two-semester fee for a double occupancy cabin with private bath is $1,350. Optional meal plans are available for orientation and during the fall and spring academic semesters. Food service is not provided during scheduled university holiday breaks.

Summer housing is available for students at a rate of $375/month for a cabin or $240/month for a yurt. Registration for these rentals will occur in February annually.

Student Health Insurance

Health insurance is required for all degree-seeking students enrolled for 4 or more credits on the Moscow campus and enrolled in 8 or more credits on other university campuses. Students with insurance that meets the university requirements can waive coverage in the University Student Health Insurance Program (SHIP). The approximate cost of the UI SHIP program is $906/semester.

Wilderness First Aid Training

All MOSS graduate students must be certified in Wilderness First Aid from an accredited program such as NOLS Wilderness Medicine Institute, Wilderness Medical Associates or SOLO. We will offer a course from NOLS WMI a few days before your orientation begins in case you are not already certified. Those already certified do not need to take this course. The approximate cost of a WFA course is $250.

Financial Aid

Part-time Jobs at MOSS

Part-time job opportunities are available at MOSS in various departments. Specific project and job needs vary from year to year. Students apply for and begin their jobs near the beginning of October, after the completion of orientation. Examples of positions include campus assistant, marketing research and assistant, gear management and logistics, kitchen support and campus maintenance support. These positions pay $9/hour.

Student Loans

MOSS students are eligible for federal financial aid programs. Students are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships. To receive consideration for need-based aid, fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid. You must file by December 1st to receive priority consideration for all aid.

External Funding

If you or your advisor have external educational and/or grant funding, this may be used to pay the MOSS program fee tuition if allowable by the funding source.
