Participation in the Marquette Study Center is primarily an academic experience. Class attendance is mandatory. Outside trips and visits are to be scheduled during official program vacations, not during class time. Failure to adhere to this requirement may result in dismissal from the program.
You will be expected to behave in a manner that will reflect positively on Marquette University and the United States. Details of expected behavior can be found in the Marquette University Ethos Statement, as well as a variety of materials included in the housing information packet you'll receive. Above all, you should endeavor to treat yourself and others with respect.
Students admitted to the Marquette Study Center must agree to the supervision and authority of the resident director throughout their association with the program. Failure to adhere to this requirement and to Marquette Study Center in Madrid policies may result in dismissal from the program.
Physically disabled students contemplating study in Spain should be aware that universities in Spain are not equipped with the same services that American universities have. This means that generally there are no special facilities or personnel to assist students in wheelchairs or with other needs. Facilities such as wheelchair ramps and beeping traffic lights do not exist in most places in Spain. Private homes and public buildings usually have many steps or small elevators; public transportation does not offer the disabled additional means for getting on or off buses or subways. In addition, few psychological support systems are available.
If disabled students want to participate in the Marquette Study Center in Madrid program, they may need to provide their own additional assistance. The Marquette Study Center can't be held responsible or liable for the possible impediments to a positive and fruitful experience abroad.
