• Apply for Financial Aid

    U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents can apply for need-based financial aid. The priority deadline to file for financial aid for fall enrollment is March 1. All students who are applying for aid need to fill out the FAFSA form. Find out more about Financial Aid.

  • Submit your enrollment deposit

    Once you receive your acceptance letter, return the enrollment response form (included with your letter) as soon as possible to reserve your spot. The deadline is May 1 (for the fall semester); the sooner we receive your deposit, the higher your priority for course pre-registration and housing preferences. Click here for more on how to pay your enrollment deposit.

    Your deposit will be credited toward your first-semester tuition and is refundable if we receive written notification before May 1.

  • Submit final transcripts

    If you’re a high school senior, please arrange to have your final transcript sent to Suffolk University upon graduation. We must receive this transcript before the start of the semester; otherwise, your financial aid award may not be distributed and you may not be allowed to enroll in classes. Final transcripts can be sent to our admission offices in Boston or Madrid.

    If you’re a transfer student, please arrange to send your official transcript for all courses taken through the semester before you start at Suffolk Madrid. For any courses you are currently taking, transcripts should be sent as soon as they become available. You also need to send proof of high school graduation or equivalency to the Office of Undergraduate Admission before classes begin; otherwise, your financial aid award may not be distributed and you may not be allowed to enroll in classes.

  • Pre-register for classes

    After you make your deposit, the Registrar’s Office in Madrid will contact you with a preliminary course selection that reflects your intended major. You may make changes to your schedule before you arrive in Spain so you’ll be ready to go when classes begin. For more information, email the Madrid Registrar’s Office.

  • Pay tuition bill

    Your tuition and fees need to be paid by the given deadline. Avoid getting de-registered from classes by making sure your payment is received. If you have any questions about the amount you owe or how to pay it, visit Payment Methods for Tuition & Fees.

  • Fly to Madrid

    Once you know your flight itinerary, fill out the airport arrival form to request airport pick-up. If we don't receive your flight information, we can't plan for you on the shuttle.

    Airport pick-up is available from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on arrival day. Remember: Flights from the U.S. to Europe usually leave in the evening and arrive in Europe the next morning. Your departure day from the US will therefore probably be the day before our arrival day. Suffolk Madrid staff and student ambassadors at the airport will welcome you, shuttle you to campus, and then accompany you to your assigned housing.

  • Extras

    There’s more to Suffolk Madrid beyond the classroom. Fun activities go on every week here, from movie nights and bike tours around the city to hiking in the mountains, volunteering, museum visits, a flamenco show, and so much more!

    Along with the welcome trip, three other weekend excursions are offered each semester. One of them is already included in your comprehensive tuition and fee package. Check out more information here.

    Suffolk Madrid partners with a prestigious local Spanish university, Universidad CEU San Pablo, so our students can participate in its cultural activities, use its facilities (library, cafeteria, gym, and sports facilities), and even take an academic class. And the best part is, it’s across the street from us!
