U.S. citizens, except those with official residency outside the United States, pay the U.S. dollar 2023-2024 published rates of $12,831 for permanent undergraduate, full-time tuition and $15,194 for first-semester transfer and non-SLU visiting students.
These students receive a bill from the St. Louis campus at their permanent U.S. address. 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 taking a course load of only online classes will not be covered by Sanitas. However, if they are physically in Spain, they can purchase Sanitas coverage through the University at 40 euros per calendar month. To do so, students may contact the Office of Finance at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A cafeteria fee will be assessed to all full-time undergraduate students in fall and spring terms that is loaded onto their IDs 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 the 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. 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% on unpaid balances if payment due dates are not met.
|Term||Payment Due Date||Percent of Payment Due on Each Date|
|Summer 2023 (First session & SP3)||
|Summer 2023 (Second session)||
Non-U.S. students may make payments using Flywire. Flywire accepts payments from any country — typically in your home currency.
- Once you initiate payment on saintlouismadrid.flywire.com, you will receive detailed instructions on how to transfer funds to SLU-Madrid. Flywire will keep you informed about every step in the process, including when funds have reached SLU-Madrid.
- Create a booking with Flywire every time you need to send money to SLU-Madrid. For more information, you can view videos about Flywire and how to make payments.
- After you've made your payment, log back into Flywire's website to review the status of your payment. SLU-Madrid will be notified once Flywire has guaranteed the funds.
- Flywire has 24/7 support available via phone, email or Skype. Please see Flywire support for contact information.
Finally, students with bank accounts in Spain may pay by domiciliación bancaria. Forms are available in the Office of Finance, or you can request one by emailing email@example.com.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. In that case, the following refund schedule would apply:
|Term||Withdrawal Date||Percent Refundable of Tuition||Percent Refundable of Class Fees|
|Summer 2023 (SP3)||
|Summer 2023 (Second Session)||
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.
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 worked out a detailed financial plan acceptable to the Office of Finance.
