* Dates as per Suffolk online academic calendar 15 June, 2016.

** 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.

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.
