Wild Rockies Field Institute


Application Process

Thank you for your interest in the Wild Rockies Field Institute!

STEP ONE: To apply for a WRFI course please complete our APPLICATION FORM

STEP TWO: You can either print your application and mail it to WRFI's address: PO Box 7071, Missoula, Montana, 59807 or attach your application in an email to wrfi@wrfi.net. The $50 application fee can be sent to WRFI's mailing address, paid over the phone to the WRFI office in Missoula (406-549-4336), or paid on the "Make a Payment" page of the website.

WRFI's admissions process is rolling, meaning we review applications as soon as we receive them. After a course fills, the remaining applicants will be placed on a waiting list or accepted into the course of their second choice.

Once you are accepted into a course, we will send you an information packet, including detailed information about the course and its particular equipment and clothing needs, the curriculum and travel routes, a medical form, an assumption of risk form, and a schedule with pertinent dates.

Your $50 application fee will be applied towards your tuition. To reserve a spot on the course, we require that students complete a medical history form and pay 25% of the tuition within three weeks of acceptance. If you have any questions, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions section or e-mail us at wrfi@wrfi.net.
