3 Academic English has a separate billing and refund policy.

U.S. citizens, except those with official residency outside the United States, pay the U.S. dollar equivalent of the euro prices given according to the dollar/euro exchange rate published in the Wall Street Journal on the dates listed below:

  • For summer tuition: March 15
  • For fall tuition: July 3
  • For spring tuition: Nov. 1

These students receive a bill at their permanent U.S. address from the St. Louis Campus. For more information on payment procedures and payment plans, visit Student Financial Services.

Undergraduate students enrolled in the fall or spring semester who take fewer than 12 credit hours pay the part-time per-credit hour rate. Students taking more than 18 credit hours pay the part-time per-credit hour rate for each credit hour taken above 18 in addition to the full-time flat price indicated. Graduate students pay on a per-credit basis.

All registered students taking classes for credit are automatically covered by a Sanitas medical insurance policy. Students whose registration consists solely of a zero-credit course have the option to purchase Sanitas coverage through the University at 40 euros per calendar month. To do so, zero-credit students may contact the Office of Finance at finance-madrid@slu.edu. Students in internships should consult insurance guidelines specific to their situation.

A cafeteria fee will be assessed to all full-time undergraduate and Academic English students in fall and spring terms. In exchange, students will be provided a 100 euros card for use in The Unity, Sodexo’s cafeteria. If a student fully withdraws during a particular term, a refund of this fee will only be processed upon the return of their SLU ID with the full unused credit to the Office of Finance within three business days of the withdrawal date. Exceptions will only be made for students who have not attended any orientation events or classes.

SLU-Madrid’s IT department sets print quotas at 500 pages per fall/spring term for undergraduates. Additional printing (per 50 pages) can be purchased in the Office of Finance.

Students who defer their admission from a summer session to fall or spring semester will need to make payment for the difference between the confirmation fees of 175 euros. In addition, first-year or transfer students who enter during a summer semester will also need to pay this difference.

Billing and Payment Information

For non-U.S. students, account summary statements for tuition are sent to the students' SLU email, which is how the University officially communicates with students. It is the responsibility of  our students to forward this information, if necessary, to those who they consider appropriate.

U.S. citizens with permanent residency outside the U.S. who do not apply for U.S. financial aid may pay their tuition fees directly to the Madrid Campus. Note that students must indicate this on their application forms and provide proof of residency outside the U.S. For these students, non-U.S. conditions will apply.

Non-U.S. students receive a statement from SLU-Madrid and may pay in full by the first day of classes or make payments in installments according to the following table. The University assesses a penalty fee of 2 percent on unpaid balances if payment due dates are not met.

Non-U.S. students may pay at the Office of Finance at SLU-Madrid by either sending a bank draft made payable to Saint Louis University in Spain, S.A., or transferring funds directly to the wire address given below.

Those who choose to transfer funds directly should be sure to specify the name of the student and what the payment is for. We recommend that a copy of the transfer be sent to the Office of Finance by fax at (+34) 91 554 62 02 or by email finance-madrid@slu.edu so that the arrival of the transfer can be monitored.

Bank: Santander Central Hispano
Address: Paseo San Francisco de Sales, 35 - 28003 Madrid, Spain
Account: IBAN ES48 0049 5127 1021 1014 7715
Bank ID: BSCHESMM
Account name: Saint Louis University in Spain, S.A.

Bank handling and exchange fees are automatically deducted from the exchanged value of the payment, at both the overseas bank and their corresponding bank in Spain, before being forwarded to us. You should make allowance for these fees when arranging payment as SLU will credit the student's account with the final value that is received.

Finally, students with bank accounts in Spain may choose to pay by domiciliación bancaria  Forms are available in the Office of Finance or you can request one by sending an email to finance-madrid@slu.edu.

Class Refund Policy

Students who formally drop any academic course within the add/drop period of the fall or spring semester will be eligible for a full refund of the difference in tuition costs. After the add/drop deadlines of each semester, refunds will only apply for full withdrawals from the University that are communicated to the Madrid Office of the Registrar by completing a Change of Registration Form or by emailing registrar-madrid@slu.edu. In that case, the following refund schedule would apply:

Dates are subject to change prior to first day of each semester. Class fees do not include mandatory class-trip fees that must be paid if the student drops after the Add/Drop period.

Financial Holds

Any student who is in arrears to the University either for tuition or housing in the course of the semester will be so notified, with the indication that failure to make payment according to an acceptable financial plan jeopardizes the student’s continued enrollment.

Students who are in arrears to the University on the final class day of a given semester for any part of either tuition or housing – and who have not prior to that date worked out a detailed financial payment plan that is acceptable to the Office of Finance – will have for the following semester any registration and housing assignments withdrawn.

In order for a student to be able to register or request a housing assignment for the following semester, he/she must have settled all debt to the University or must have worked out a detailed financial plan that is acceptable to the Office of Finance.

Please feel welcome to address any questions about financial matters related to housing to:
