Updates

Airline Fees...The airlines are charging many different fees today; it is almost impossible to keep up with them. Here is a link which gives a breakdown of the current fees. These are subject to change without notice.

Baggage Fees....In light of the fact that airlines are now charging for checked luggage for domestic travel, the college will pay for the first piece of checked luggage for all standard business travel.  Please pay attention to weight limits on luggage because the college will not cover any “over the limit” weight fees. Please remember to keep your receipts for reimbursement.  (Students traveling for semester and interim abroad programs are responsible for their own baggage fees.)
