Notes:

* Dates from Suffolk University Academic Calendar as of September 5th, 2019.

** Participation in one of these trips is automatically included in students’ tuition and fees. A supplementary fee for the trip to Andorra
may be applicable. For students who do not choose to participate in any of the trips included, no refund will be available. Students
may also sign up through the Student Activities Office for an additional trip for an extra fee. Payment deadlines will be announced.

1 This trip is only for students enrolled in the SCI L112 Structure of the Universe Course.

2 This trip is only for students enrolled in the SCI 103 Environmental Science.

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 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.
