OCTOBER 5, 2015:  NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE INTO PROGRAM BEGINS (earlier if enrollment is competitive).  Begin practicing Italian and Turkish.  Students with other than a US or Canadian passport should consult with the Learning Abroad Center as quickly as possible (even if you haven’t registered) and in particular to consult with Mike Trost (the VISA specialist at Learning Abroad Center).  Please allow yourself plenty of time to confirm – if required – and  apply for the necessary visas.  Non US Passport holders will have some extra hoops to jump through, but we’ve got some good Visa experience to share!  Please note that as of this year, the University of Minnesota is charging $50 to register for a study abroad program.

OCTOBER 12, 2015: DROP-DEAD-DEADLINE FOR FINAL REGISTRATION via Learning Abroad Center (Links will be provided here when updated).

OCTOBER 16, 2015: Non-refundable program fee deposit due: $500

OCTOBER 19, 2015:  FINAL Student roster to be sent to Rome/Istanbul for Housing + Accommodation confirmations.
