Partner Universities and Study Abroad Programs

After you have been accepted to study abroad, you will be registered for "placeholder courses" at Suffolk University as determined by your advisor. Courses that you take at a partner university will appear as transfer credits on your transcript as long as you receive a passing grade in the course. In order to pass the course, students need to receive a letter grade of "C" or higher. A student's GPA will be unaffected by the semester spent abroad. 

While you are abroad, you will receive instructions to register for courses for the following semester from the Registrar's Office. 

Suffolk Madrid Campus 

You will be given a specific date to register for the classes that were approved with Academic Advising.  You will register through MySuffolk where you can search for courses being offered at the Madrid Campus. Students must take at least 12 credits to maintain their full-time status as a student for visa purposes.

Students taking courses at Suffolk Madrid will receive credits and the letter grades for their courses. These grades and credits will be reflected on the student's transcript and will factor into the student's GPA.

While you are abroad, you will receive instructions to register for courses for the following semester from the Registrar's Office.
