Notes:

* Dates as of May 27, 2019

** Participation in an SUMC cultural trip is automatically included in students’ tuition and fees. Students may also sign up through the Student Activities Office for an additional trip for an extra fee. Payment deadlines will be announced.

1Madrid activity is only for students enrolled in GVT 367 Politics of Spain.

2Canary Islands trip is only for students enrolled in the SCI L111 Introduction to Astronomy Lab.

3Toledo trip is only for students enrolled in ARH 101 Art History I.

***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 rescheduled 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.
