Who can participate in the Bible Lands program?
Learners of any age—students and non-students—can participate in the Bible Lands program. Certain eligibility requirements apply for college students, and for minors not accompanied by an adult. (See "Student Information" below.)
When is the program offered?
The Bible Lands program takes place annually, with different destinations offered each year. The 2017 Bible Lands program in Greece and Turkey will take place May 15-27. (May 15-16 and 27 are travel days to and from the Eastern Mediterranean.)
How do I apply?
View and print the Bible Lands application online and submit it to the FHU Abroad Office. Acrobat Reader is required to view the application. The application deadline for the May 2017 Bible Lands program is January 9, 2017.
Applicants are required to submit a $400 deposit (refundable until January 9, 2017) with their application to reserve a spot in the program. The trip can accommodate a limited number of participants. Once the program is full, later applicants will be placed on a waiting list after they pay the $400 deposit. All applicants who are placed on the waiting list and do not make the program will have their deposits refunded.
Where do I send my deposit and application?
Cash or check deposits may be mailed to FHU Abroad:
FHU Abroad (Box 139)
158 E Main St.
Henderson, TN 38340
Make checks payable to FHU, and specify in the memo line that the deposit is for the “Bible Lands program.” If the name of the participant is not the same as the name on the check, please also note for whom the deposit is being made.
To pay by credit or debit card, contact the Office of Business Services at 731-989-6357.
Applications may be submitted to FHU Abroad by mail to the address above, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by fax to 731-989-6115. Please include a cover sheet when submitting an application via fax.
Are there any other materials I need to submit?
In order to participate in the program, applicants must complete and submit all FHU Abroad forms, including the Release and Indemnification Agreement, the Payment and Withdrawal Policy, the Emergency Information Form, and the Insurance Waiver (if applicable). All of the forms are available online. Participants will also be required to submit any relevant pre-departure orientation forms; contact FHU Abroad for more information.
How much does the program cost?
The all-inclusive program charge for the 2017 Bible Lands program is $4,000. The program charge includes:
Will there be any other expenses?
Participants are responsible for the expense of obtaining a passport (if applicable) and a Turkish e-visa ($20—must be obtained online before arrival at evisa.gov.tr).
If a single-occupancy room is required (as opposed to a standard double room), there is an additional $500 charge. Upon request, single participants may be paired up in double rooms when possible, but the double-occupancy rate cannot be guaranteed for single participants.
Please note: The cost of the program is based on the cost of group airfare as quoted by the airlines and cannot be guaranteed until tickets are purchased. The cost of travel insurance also increases for higher age brackets, so participants age 80 or older may be required to pay a higher program charge. Any increase in the cost of the program will only reflect an increase in the cost of airfare and/or travel insurance.
When will I make payments for the program?
Payments should be made toward the cost of the 2017 Bible Lands program according to the following payment schedule:
An additional $500 is due by March 6 if a single-occupancy room is required. Any increase in the cost of airfare or travel insurance (see above) will be due by March 6.
The cancellation and refund policy applies to all deposits and payments. Reference the Payment and Withdrawal Policy for more information.
How can I make payments?
Payments may be made to the FHU Office of Business Services in the same way as the $400 deposit. Checks may be mailed to:
Make checks payable to FHU, and specify in the memo line that the payment is for the “Bible Lands program.” If the name of the participant is not the same as the name on the check, please also note for whom the payment is being made.
To pay by credit card, contact the Office of Business Services at 731-989-6357.
What are the student eligibility requirements?
All minors and college students, whether enrolled in classes at FHU or elsewhere, must have completed two semesters of college coursework and achieved sophomore classification with a minimum GPA of 2.5. Students whose GPA falls below 2.5 or who are on any kind of probation—academic, disciplinary, or otherwise—may not participate.
Students will also be required to participate in pre-departure orientation during the semester before they participate in the program.
Will I receive course credit for the program?
Students may enroll in three hours of academic credit associated with the program through the course BIB299A/399A Middle Eastern Cultures. Class participants will attend meetings and complete assignments during the spring semester prior to traveling to the Middle East.
Will I pay tuition?
Full-time students who enroll in BIB299A/399A Middle Eastern Cultures will not be charged any additional cost for taking the course, as the hours will be included in the spring semester's comprehensive charge. Students who are enrolled less than full-time will pay the part-time comprehensive charge (see Tuition Details).
Can I use financial aid?
Students may use financial aid such as scholarships, grants, and loans toward the cost of the Bible Lands program if they are enrolled in BIB299A/399A Middle Eastern Cultures. Contact the Office of Student Financial Services regarding questions or information about financial aid.
What is pre-departure orientation?
All participants in the Bible Lands program are required to complete mandatory pre-departure orientation sessions before participating in the tour. The orientation sessions will be completed either on campus or online via video podcasts. Orientation sessions will cover topics like safety and appropriate conduct, history and culture, packing tips, and general program information.
The FHU Abroad Office will contact participants with information about pre-departure orientation after the application deadline, and any questions about orientation should be directed to the FHU Abroad Office.
When do I need to apply for a passport?
Applicants who do not already have a passport should begin the passport application process immediately. Valid passports are required in advance for all participants in order to make travel arrangements. For information about how to apply for a passport, reference the State Department website.
Even if you already have a passport, check the expiration date. To obtain a Turkish visa (see below), your passport must be valid for at least 6 months from the date you intend to enter Turkey. If your passport will expire before then, it must be renewed.
Will I need a visa?
U.S. citizens must apply for a visa to enter Turkey, no sooner than three months prior to your arrival in Turkey. (The FHU Abroad Office will contact you when it is time for you apply for your visa.) The Turkish visa is an e-Visa, meaning the entire process can be done online. Visit evisa.gov.tr to apply for your visa.
Non-U.S. citizens are responsible for obtaining any visas or re-entry permits necessary for visiting Greece and Turkey; check the foreign entry requirements for Greece and Turkey. Tourist visas often require more time to process than passports, so apply early.
How does the FHU Abroad office address safety concerns?
The health and safety of our program participants is always very important to Freed-Hardeman University. Every effort is made to keep our students and participants safe and secure. Safety will be thoroughly discussed during pre-departure orientation to educate participants about safety concerns, appropriate conduct while traveling abroad, and what to do in the event of an emergency. In the event of an emergency, the FHU Abroad Office will be in close contact with the tour hosts in Israel as well as the students, participants, and family members involved.
The U.S. State Department works to alert U.S. citizens of any international travel risks, and all of our international program participants are urged to register their travels with the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). STEP is a free program provided by the State Department that allows international travelers to receive the latest travel updates and information about their location.
