The first payment for the program will be due by April in order to purchase airline tickets. Please contact Dr. Carmine Palumbo if you have any questions regarding payment amounts and/or deadlines.


Students who are interested in participating with the program, but do not currently have a passport will need to apply for an expedited passport, so that the passport will arrive in time for purchasing international airline tickets.
