Before a student will be accepted to the tour program, they will need to meet with a tour director to determine the financial capability of the student.

$300 deposit

$1200 due by January 20

$1200 due by February 20

$1200 due by March 20

It is important that we receive payments before the deadlines as we must pay well in advance of the trip for airline tickets and deposits for housing, ground transportation, museum reservations, etc.

Payments may be made to the Brigham Young University-Idaho Cashiers Office, KIM 130, Rexburg, ID 83460-1625 either in person, by mail (make checks payable to Brigham Young-Idaho), or on-line by e-check or by MasterCard only with a 2% fee.  Specify that the payment is a deposit for your Humanities travel-study program.

The cost of tuition will be charged to each student's account by the university at the time registration is completed.


Cancellation fees can cost the tour upwards of thousands of dollars. Please plan carefully before committing to participate in a travel-study program.  If you choose not to participate once you have been accepted into the European Study program, you must notify the Department of Humanities and Philosophy in Taylor 240 in writing. There will be no refund of the $300 deposit for cancellations. In addition, expenses incurred above the $300 such as theatre tickets, airfare, and other non-refundable expenditures will also be charged to the student's account and will remain due and payable to the university.
