Please make sure you have your passport information on hand as it is required to submit the application. If you leave a required field blank (denoted by a *), you will not be able to submit.
Guests are welcome if there is space available after students have been accommodated. Guests must complete and submit their own full GLO application packet and will be charged a $1222 spouse program fee. This includes half of a double suite, the welcome and farewell meals, group cultural visits and transportation to/from Abu Dhabi. If you plan to bring a guest with you on the program, please indicate the guest's name below.
On occasion, we are required to release the name and other information (including but not limited to employer, position, city/state of residence, country of citizenship) to the companies that will be hosting our group. Our travel service company requires that we submit participant information to them for hotel, travel arrangements and other logistics. The Tippie MBA Program will register your travel with the U.S. State Department STEP program.
Please answer the questions below in order to help us identify and match compatible individuals—as much as feasibly possible—as roommates. For all double rooms, the MBA program will assign roommates unless a preferred roommate is listed by both parties. NOTE: This information will not be shared with other students—it is simply for office use.
Even if you are selecting your roommate, it is a good thing to consider the following questions because awareness of and consideration for one another's individual habits will help make your trip go more smoothly.
Optional Single Room Supplement Fee:
By paying this fee students will have their own room for all nights of the program.
If you have a preferred roommate, please list him/her here. In order for us to honor this request both individuals, must name each other as the preferred roommate.
* If you do not have a passport, you MUST apply for one immediately. (Application processing typically takes 4 to 6 weeks and there is also an option to Expedite for an additional fee.) Visit travel.state.gov for information about applying for a passport.
** If your passport will expire before July 12, 2014, you will need to renew your passport before the GLO, as the destination country requires that passports be valid for at least 6 months past the date of travel.

The Full-time MBA Program will subsidize the $2,400 program fee for GLO.
NOTE: If you withdraw on or after October 1, the program fee is not refundable and you will be penalized the entire program fee amount ($2400) given our requirement to prepay the vendor. The program fee will be charged to your U-Bill on October 1, 2013. If you selected a single room, your U-Bill will also reflect that additional $495 charge.
