All disciplinary policies in effect on the Irving campus apply on the Eugene Constantin Campus in Rome. Additionally, the Rome Campus Dean/Director/VP institutes policies for the efficient operation of that campus. Students who present serious or repeated disciplinary problems or are a danger to themselves or others may be dismissed from the Rome Program.

Disciplinary Clearance

A student’s disciplinary records will be reviewed by the Director of Student Affairs for clearance to participate in the Rome program. Students with serious or repeated violations of the Student Code of Conduct will not be permitted to participate in the Rome Semester until they clearly demonstrate the personal maturity to study abroad.

Health Clearance

Medical conditions are not an automatic obstacle to studying abroad. The University makes reasonable accommodations on an individualized basis for students with medical conditions to make participation in the Rome Program possible.
Health Requirements: Health clearance requires that chronic health conditions must be stable under current treatment for at least 4 months, including at least one full semester on the Irving campus, with an expectation of ongoing stability under current treatment for the next 6 months. The student must be able to travel, carry a heavy backpack, and adjust to rigorous academic and physical activity. Ongoing treatment must be able to be administered on Rome campus and during travel periods.

Rome Applications: Both fall and spring Rome applicants apply for Rome the February prior to the year they wish to go to Rome. A complete application for students attending Rome in fall 2016 or spring 2017 includes a passport valid through September 2017. Students without this passport by March 1, 2016 will be wait-listed for Rome. If you do not have a passport, apply for one before Christmas. Passports issued to people under 17 expire every five years. If you do have a passport, be sure to check your expiration date and renew your passport before Christmas.

Rome Courses: Rome course prerequisites are the Literary Tradition I and Philosophy and the Ethical Life. The Literary Tradition II and Understanding the Bible are strongly encouraged. The courses offered in Rome include the Literary Tradition III, Western Civilization I, The Human Person and Western Theological Tradition. Do not take these courses in Irving; save them for Rome.

Summer Rome: There is a summer Rome term for those who cannot attend the full semester. For further information please see the Rome and Summer Programs section of the University bulleting and visit udallas.edu/rome or udallas.edu/romesummer.
