Notes:

*Dates as per Suffolk online academic calendar as of 4 August 2014.

** 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.

*** This trip is only for students enrolled in SCI L112 Astronomy II Lab.

**** Final exams will be administered from Wednesday, 29 April through Thursday, 7 May. Individual course exam dates will be published at the beginning of the spring semester but may be subject to change. Students should not make plans to travel before Friday, 8 May.

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.
