The University of Dallas Rome Program has arranged a group flight. Students will rendezvous in a hub city on flights from their hometown airports, which will be arranged by the Rome Office from the information you provide on your flight form and will be calculated into the cost of your ticket.
Students with a good reason for not flying with the group may request a waiver of the group flight requirement. A complete waiver requires submission of the waiver form along with a copy of the student’s tentative itinerary with complete flight information and travel details.
