Coe College operates the Wilderness Field Station, a truly unique Wilderness "classroom," run for 40 years by the Associated Colleges of the Midwest, north of Ely in far northern Minnesota.
Upon completion the student will receive one course credit per course (or four semester hour credits). The course credit will count toward distribution requirements, majors and graduation, the same as if they were taken on campus at Coe.
Students at all colleges are eligible to apply.

Credit is received through Coe College's summer school and must be transferred to your home school if other than Coe. Check with your registrar for more details. Classes transfer as four semester hour credits or one course credit.
Three weeks after acceptance into the program, a $300 non-refundable deposit will be due. This deposit guarantees a place in the course and is applied directly to the total cost.
