**Students may opt to stay in a hotel for the Jordan portion of the program for an additional fee - contact us for current costs. Meals other than breakfast are not included if a hotel is selected.

At the end of the program students are free to travel either back to their home country or to other locations. After the day indicated as the day students depart (typically following the final day of the program), students are responsible for all of their own transportation, housing, insurance, and other logistical arrangements. Students should note that after the departure day noted on the academic calendar, their program-provided insurance coverage will end and they must arrange for accommodations outside of AMIDEAST shared apartments, AMIDEAST host families, or the hotel in Dublin.
