On February 5 a Prospective Romers meeting was held for students interested in attending Rome this Fall 2013 and Spring 2014. The application and eligibility requirements were discussed at the meeting. You will find the PowerPoint presentation shown at the meeting as well as other pertinent information for parents online at udallas.edu/rome/prospectiveromers/applicationprocess.html. Both Fall and Spring applicants will need to submit all application components to the Rome Office by March 1. A complete application for Rome includes a copy of a valid passport with an expiration date no sooner than September 2014. If your student does not have a passport or if their passport is expired, they should expedite their passport application in order for it to arrive by the March 1 deadline.
Tuition on the Rome and Irving campuses are the same, with room and board in Rome somewhat higher. Additional costs of the Rome semester relate to independent and faculty-led travel, administrative fees and international airfare.

If your UD undergrad has siblings who would like to "test-drive" a UD academic experience or if you are interested in an adult Rome experience, the Rome and Summer Programs Office offers programs in Italy and Irving. Programs for Summer 2013 include (for high school students): Shakespeare in Italy, Latin in Rome, and Arete: A College Preparatory Program, the Undergraduate Summer Rome Program and The School of Ministry offers theology courses for adults on the Rome campus in the month of June.
