Cell Phone Information

Students are not required to carry a cell phone while participating in the Rome Program, however they can be helpful to have when meeting up with other students, calling home, or contacting campus in case of an emergency. If you do not want to buy an international phone or plan past students suggest bringing an iPhone, smartphone, or some electronic device that can access the internet using Wifi. There are many free applications that allow you to call, text, video chat, and message by soley using your Wifi connection. No international cell plan is needed. A few of these free apps are Whatsapp, Voxer, and Textfree. With apps such as these, it is not necessary to purchase an international phone or data plan for communication. However, if you wish to do so, we do not suggest any specific carrier, but we recommend that you do your own research and decide what option will be best for you. A few such options are listed below. 

Filing Taxes

Remember to file your taxes, leave a signed tax form for your parents to complete, or file for an extension before you leave for Rome. All tax forms may be found at http://www.irs.gov/ and should be available to you via the internet. Forms may be completed, signed and mailed back to the states if you are unable to fill out your paperwork before you leave. If you are unable to file your income tax return by the due date you may be able to get a 6 month extension of time to file. To do so, you must file Form 4868, Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File US Income Tax Return by the due date for filing your calendar year return (April 15th) or fiscal year return.
