Geology in Cuba, a trip for students

The 10-day Brevard College Geology in Cuba journey is open 
to students from all US colleges and universities. Students 
register for a 1-credit course entitled Geology 290: The 
Geology of Western Cuba. 

Brevard College in North Carolina, in collaboration with CET 
Academic Programs, will travel to Cuba from March 2-12, 2012. 
This 10-day journey features travel to Havana, Varadero, and 
other locations in the Vinales Valley. Students explore the 
unique Cuban geological landscape with renowned Professor 
of Geology, Dr. Jim Reynolds.  Dr. Reynolds has led numerous 
study excursions all over the world including the Galápagos 
Islands, Iceland, Egypt, Argentina and Chile.

The program costs $3615 which is broken into two parts - 
a) the Brevard College Program Fee of $925 (tuition for the 
1-credit GEOL 290: Geology of Western Cuba course and 
administrative fees) and the CET fee of $2690 (round-trip 
airfare from Miami, FL to Havana, Cuba; double 
accommodation room; ground transportation for all 
program activities; 10 breakfasts, 3 lunches and 9 dinners; 
required Cuban Medical Insurance; and Cuban visa fees). 
Transportation to/from Miami is not included. Airfare

Programs' travel partner separately.

Registration for the 1-credit GEOL 290 course is facilitated 
by Dr. Reynolds who will direct students to the appropriate 
form(s) on the Brevard College website, the Registrar's 
Office and the Finance Office.  For more information and to

Dear Colleagues,

I am writing to clarify the message sent out by CET Academic Programs on November 1 about the 10-day Brevard College Geology in Cuba journey.

The parent company of CET Academic Programs, Academic Travel Abroad (ATA) is licensed by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC)/US Treasury as a Travel Services Provider (TSP) and has extensive experience serving US residents who are legally permitted to travel to Cuba in their own right. Here is the link to the Treasury Department's list of TSP: http://www.treasury.gov/resource-center/sanctions/Programs/Documents/cuba_tsp.pdf.

Additionally, in order to participate in this program, students from institutions other than Brevard College must register for academic credit for GEOL 290 - Geology in Cuba at Brevard College. According to OFAC rules, this credit must also be accepted by students' home institutions and must count towards their degree.

If you have any additional questions about these restrictions and regulations, please contact Mark Lenhart, Executive Director of CET Academic Programs and Vice President of Academic Travel Abroad.

  1. Cuba’s metallic resources include cobalt, nickel, iron ore, chromium and copper. Great things you can discover in this place, specially for the students who will visit.
