Students who apply to the Madrid Campus recognize the value of a traditional American, Jesuit university education, and are also looking for something unique. SLU-Madrid seeks individuals who are curious to meet new people, travel to new places and contemplate new ideas and ways of viewing the world as well as themselves.
Students who have completed more than 24 university credit hours or two semesters of full-time study at the university level should apply as transfer students. Students who transfer to the Madrid Campus are typically interested in majoring in Spanish, Communication, Political Science/International Relations, Economics and Business Administration/International Business. Transfer students from other disciplines are welcome to apply, but will ultimately have to transfer to the Saint Louis Campus (or any other American university) to finish their degree program.
Transfer students who have completed more than two years of university-level work should be aware that they must complete their final 30 credit hours at the Madrid Campus and that some majors may have additional requirements for graduation. Please see the following link for additional information: Information about transferring credits.
Students who do not have legal residence in the European Union will need to apply for a student visa in order to study with us at the Madrid Campus. Please keep in mind that this process can be both time consuming and costly. To find your corresponding consulate, refer to: http://www.maec.es/embajadas. Please keep in mind that you may need an appointment to apply for your visa.
SLU provides a visa service for students who are able to apply for their student visa using the Chicago Spanish Consulate. This service will allow students to send their application paperwork to St. Louis and SLU will take the applications to Chicago and pick them up for the student.
