Jerusalem Center semester cancelled

PROVO, Utah — Because of the recent escalation of violence in the region, BYU will not resume student programs at its Jerusalem Center for Near Eastern Studies Fall Semester 2006 as previously announced.

While it is the hope and expectation that the university will resume students programs at some point, the university will not make any decision regarding future programs until the current conflict is resolved in such a way that students can safely travel to the area and within the Holy Land.

Application materials, processing fees and deposits are being returned to students who applied for the Fall 2006 program.

The Jerusalem Center remains open to visitors and continues to host community outreach and service programs.
