Checks must be made out to the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO), or you can pay with cash or credit card. All participants must secure their space with the group by submitting the deposit and application or registration forms. Confirmation of your reservation is on a first-come, first-served basis.  There are limited spaces so you must act soon if you want to guarantee a space. The remaining cost will be due April, 26.

UNO Students
UNO Students must enroll in LLS 4950/8956-851 “Latin America Study Abroad: Cuba in the 21st Century” for the summer 2012 semester (July 2 – August 10, 2012). The approximate cost of the trip will be between $3,400 and $3,600 which includes the flight, tuition, hotel (17 nights), two meals a day, local transportation, supplies, tips, special guest lectures, and the cost of the service learning project.
The final cost (less the deposit) will be assessed to your summer student account bill as a special fee. Personal and miscellaneous expenses as well as airport fees, travel insurance (required), meals, and travel outside of the set plan are your responsibility. We recommend you bring between $100-150/week.
