Notes:

* Dates as of January 30, 2017.

** Participation in one of these trips is automatically included in students’ tuition and fees. Students may also sign up through the Student Activities Office for either one or both of the other two trips for an additional fee. Payment deadlines will be announced.

1 This trip is mandatory and only for students enrolled in ARH 101 Art History I.

2 This trip is mandatory and only for students enrolled in the SCI L112 Astronomy II Lab.

Dates for specific exams will be published separately and may be subject to change; therefore, students should not make arrangements for any personal plans or travel during the stated midterm and final exam periods. Exams will not be re-scheduled to accommodate student travel or other personal plans.

The Spanish Ministry of Labor publishes the calendar of official holidays a few months ahead of the relevant year. Therefore, it is possible that there may be changes in the Suffolk University Madrid Campus calendar. Otherwise, changes are expected to be slight.

Suffolk University Madrid Campus reserves the right to alter these dates should the need arise.
