Be Sure You Have a Valid Passport

You must possess a valid passport to study at SLU-Madrid — no matter what your nationality. The passport must be valid for at least six months beyond the end of your academic term. For example, if you enroll as a degree-seeking student through May, your passport should be valid six months past May. 

EU and Spanish passport holders may submit an ID card number in lieu of a passport. 

Submit Your Confirmation Fee

Become a Billiken by accepting the offer to join our student body. You can pay the 225 euros non-refundable confirmation fee via Flywire, a secure online payment system. Input your Banner ID and date of birth, then submit the fee. We will send you an email once we receive it. You must have a valid passport before submitting your confirmation fee.

Consider Your Housing Options

SLU-Madrid doesn't have a housing requirement, so you are free to choose what's best for you. SLU-Madrid strongly suggests that new students live with a host family or in a nearby residence hall to help them adjust to living in a new place. 

Your best source of information is our housing page.

Apply for Your Student Visa

If you do not hold a European passport and you will be in Spain for one semester or more, you must apply for a Spanish student visa at your nearest consulate. Students who do not hold a European Union or U.S. passport must pay for one full semester's tuition before SLU-Madrid issues their student visa documentation. Your consulate is the best source of information, however, we can get you started on the basics on our Visas for Spain page.

Finish Pre-Registration Items and Register for Classes

Registration begins two to three months before the start of your academic term and only after you have completed the pre-registration tasks. Your academic adviser will create a first-semester plan for you. 

We also offer transfer credit for classes from other institutions (AP, CLEP, IB Highers).

Learn About Transfer Credit

If your admission has the condition that you must send final academic documents, have your registrar or college counselor send them before the beginning of your term; failure to do so will mean you cannot register for your second-semester classes.
