Marquette students

Most Marquette financial aid can be applied to the Marquette Study Center in Madrid. Check with the Office of Student Financial Aid to confirm how studying in Madrid will affect your aid package, including scholarships.

Non-Marquette students

Check with your home institution’s financial aid office to see if it will process financial assistance while you attend the Marquette Study Center. If this is not an option, you may apply for aid through Marquette's Office of Student Financial Aid.

You must also complete a FAFSA and a visiting student consortium agreement, which can be obtained from:
