Important passport information:
If you do not have a valid passport, we suggest that you go ahead and apply for your passport now. Both first time applicants and passport renewals can be subject to extensive delays, so we strongly suggest applying today. While it might seem premature to apply before you are accepted to your program, remember that USA adult passports are valid for 10 years so if you see yourself traveling in the future, it is worth it to apply now!
If this is your first passport, you will have to apply in person, so keep that in mind. If you already have a passport but it has expired, you will receive a new passport number when you renew your passport. It’s best to start this process early as well because you will need the new passport number to book flights and more. Passport acquisition is an additional cost not shown in the above estimates!
If you do not already have a passport and are getting your first time passport, the College of Forestry has scholarship funds to support you. For more information, see our First-time Passport Funding section!
