Cost Savings & Scholarships

Students have found a number of ways to reduce their costs associated with this trip. First, some students use their frequent flier miles to save on airfare costs. Second, many students have convinced their employers to pay for the program as part of an employer's educational reimbursement program. Third, some students who apply for scholarships receive some money, so we strongly recommend that participants apply for scholarships. Information about these can be found on the Learning Abroad Scholarship website.


International Travel Information

Participants must have a valid passport. Because a copy of your passport is required to sign up for the trip, if you do not have one you should apply for one as soon as possible. Students who are not U.S. citizens may require a Visa to enter Greece. It is the student's responsibility to verify visa requirements for their nationality. It is also the student's responsibility to acquire all necessary visas. Visit the state department's web site for more information about international travel.

Arrival

Students are responsible for their own arrival travel arrangements. The program begins at 5:00 pm on Saturday, March 9th. Because most flights leave Houston in the afternoon and arrive in Athens the following day, students will have to depart Houston on Friday, March 8th.

During the Program

We will arrange all travel during the program at no additional expense to the student. This includes day trips, tours, visits to local businesses, and travel to and from Athens International Airport.

Departure

The program ends on Saturday, March 16th. Students may depart at any time that day or later.


Accommodation Information

Students will be provided double rooms upon arrival on Saturday until departure on the following Saturday. Breakfast is included, but other meals, phone charges, laundry, and other charges are not.

If students desire to arrive in Athens before Saturday or depart Athens after the following Saturday, all arrangements for accommodations need to be made directly with the hotel.
