REQUESTING AN ACADEMIC FEE WAIVER FOR GLEN CANYON NRA
Academic Fee Waiver Application (pdf)
The following information has been taken directly from National Park Service Regulations (NPS-22). This is the guideline to be followed in granting education fee waivers. Bona fide educational or scientific institutions may qualify if the following conditions are met. Please Read Carefully. Your application package must contain all of the following.
1.Current official documentation of recognition of affiliation as an educational institution by a Federal, State or local government entity, or other evidence attesting to educational status is attached (e.g. ACCREDITATION LETTER or an EDUCATIONAL TAX EXEMPT LETTER). It is insufficient to merely state or imply this on official letterhead. Your fee waiver CANNOT be processed without one of these documents submitted with your application.
2.There must be a direct relationship between the visit purpose and the use of the Park. The visit must be to study some aspect/resource specific to Glen Canyon. A general statement to the effect that the visit is for "educational purposes" is insufficient by itself. An explanation of what the educational purpose entails and how is related to Park resources is required. (Course outlines, lesson plans, or a copy of the curriculum meet this requirement.)
3.The applicant is providing educational credit hours based on a specific course of instruction. The visit shall not be primarily for recreation purposes. (Generally, camping is considered a recreational activity). This requirement can be met by stating the course number, description and/or a copy of the catalog description for college courses or an outline of student work required for K-12. Number of Chaperones allowed will be: 20 College students - 1 Chaperone, 12 High School students - 1 Chaperone, 5 Elementary students - 1 Chaperone
Applications (download link is at the top of this page) must be received in the Fee Management Office 2-4 weeks in advance of the anticipated visit.
