Why should I study here?

SLU's Madrid Campus dates from a modest study abroad program launched by Raymond L. Sullivant, S.J. in the 1960s. Its success led Father Sullivant to offer classes in conjunction with the University of Comillas and then to establish an independent, permanent program, with its administrative offices and classrooms located between Madrid's Complutense University and the city center, in 1967.

What are the admissions criteria?

Applicants can submit either SAT or ACT scores or an IB. Transcripts are also required, as is a passport copy.  Applicants from non-anglophone countries or high schools must show proof of English proficiency. The deadline for admission is May 31st.
