The total cost of participating in COÖP is $400. Students are expected to arrive with most of their personal gear (we can provide some for a small fee), and a list of packing materials has been provided for each program: hiking (HOP), biking (BOP), and river canoeing (ROP). We offer COÖP Nalgenes for purchase upon arrival at Columbia.
Reduced pre-orientation program participation fees may be available for participants with the highest financial need. You will be asked during the program application process if you are a Columbia grant financial aid recipient and would like to be considered for a reduced program participation fee.
Offers will be sent in mid- to late-June. Deposits confirming a spot in COÖP, made in any payment method, are non-refundable. Please contact COÖP with any questions about this process at firstname.lastname@example.org.
