The above fees do NOT cover the following: transatlantic travel, personal expenses, tips, passport and visa cosst, trips not connected with Academic Year excursions, textbooks, study materials, dry cleaning and transportation within Madrid.

Because of possible fluctuations in the foreign exchange rate and of other unforeseen circumstances, these fees are to be considered tentative. Every effort will be made, however, to limit the charges to those stated above.

All payments should be made by check, payable to the Hamilton College Academic Year in Spain. Please send payments to the address below in order to ensure proper crediting to the student's individual account.

Students who apply and are accepted for the full academic year and who decide later (by Oct. 1 at the latest) to change to a fall-only status will be required to pay an additional $200 above the usual total fall payments. (This fee is necessary because of commitments the program has to make on an annual basis, and helps to defray extra costs incurred when such changes are made.)

Note: A student who is admitted for the fall term and who, while in Spain, desires admission to the full-year program, must submit an application to the Programs Abroad Committee prior to Oct. 1, and must have that application approved by the committee.

Note: Some Spanish consulates in the United States require proof of payment having been made in full before a student can obtain his or her visa. This may require some participants to pay prior to the official Hamilton program deadline.
