Baggage Information

Checked Bags

You are permitted one checked bag for $25, which has been included in your course fees. It must not exceed 62 inches (length + width + height). It also must also not exceed 50 pounds.

Overweight bag charge, each way!: 51-70 pounds = $100 fee...71-99 pounds = $200 fee

Oversize bag charge: 63-80 inches (L + W + H) = $150 fee

An overweight, oversized bag will cost you both fees!

A second bag costs you $35...and the same overweight and oversize charges apply.

All second-bag, overweight, or oversize charges are your personal financial responsibility at check-in. These charges are not covered in your course fees! Use a lightweight bag and select items from the list of things to bring that are as lightweight as possible. A diving knife (if any), scissors, pocket knife, fingernail clipper, etc. must be in a checked bag. Any computers must NOT be in the checked bag(s); we discourage bringing computers as you will not have access to Wi-Fi on the station, and internet access is provided for you in the GRC computer lab.
