Whether you are a prospective undergraduate, a returning student, a professional looking to advance your career opportunities or simply someone who loves to learn, your educational journey continues here.
We recognize that educational costs are a concern for many. Financial aid and other assistance varies for each type of student or program, but our best efforts will be put forth to ensure qualified students interested in attending Salve Regina are able to do so.
Below you will find information to help you take that first step toward success.
While admission to Salve Regina is competitive, students are selected without regard to age, race, gender, creed, national or ethnic origin, sexual orientation or disability. Please visit the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for more details about the application process or the Office of Financial Aid for further assistance with funding and scholarships.
The University offers master's degrees in nine areas as well as a doctorate in humanities. Graduate courses are available on our Newport campus, at our Blackstone Valley site in Pawtucket, R.I., or online. Certificate programs and a five-year course of study option are also available. Programs are open to individuals with bachelor's degrees from regionally accredited institutions of higher learning or an equivalent degree from an internationally accredited college or university. The Office of Graduate Studies and Continuing Education will help you get started.
Continuing Education Programs
Not everyone seeking access to higher education is doing so right after high school. Salve Regina recognizes the growing number of non-traditional students searching for learning opportunities through continuing education. The University's continuing education programs in accounting, business administration, liberal arts and marketing feature small classes led by faculty with real-world experience, along with the opportunity to take some courses online. Designed with working nurses in mind, Salve Regina's RN to B.S. program is available to those with an RN license who are currently established in the field. Applicants must have completed at least 45 credits of undergraduate work.
Salve Regina classifies an international student as a student who does not hold a U.S. citizenship or passport or U.S. permanent residency (U.S. resident alien) and who needs an F-1 student visa. This includes international students who are living and/or studying outside the U.S. and students who are living and/or studying in the U.S. at the time of their application for admission. International students can access application instructions and resources specific to them through the international admissions office.
