Please note: Your
application will be processed faster if you submit all the required materials
together, and use paper clips rather than staples to secure your documents.
Applications must be complete in order to be reviewed. Completed applications contain all of our
required items. If you receive a missing items postcard, please check to see
that the items have been sent. Please remember that items sent by your
school may have crossed in the mail with our processing. Do not panic - as long
as missing items are received with a postmark date prior to the deadline, your
application will be reviewed.
Salve Regina's Early
Action deadline is Nov. 1. Decision letters for Early Action candidates will be mailed shortly before the holiday break in December.
Salve Regina's regular
application deadline is Feb. 1. All decision letters for the fall semester are
mailed by April 1.
Applicants accepted to
Salve Regina must submit their enrollment deposit by May 1. Accepted students
will also be invited to our spring event, Connections Day, to assist in their
college selection process. Accepted students planning to apply for financial
aid must file all financial aid forms by March 1.
Applicants placed on the
wait list will be notified of their status no earlier than May 1 and no later
than June 30. Students must return the wait list response form to hold their
place on the wait list. We realize the difficulty associated with the uncertainty
of being on the wait list and have developed a question-and-answer sheet which
we mail to wait-listed applicants to answer your questions.
Regina receives many more applications than there are spaces in the entering
class. In recent years, Salve Regina has been able to accept only 60 percent of
applicants. If you receive a denial letter and have questions about the
decision, please send your questions in writing and we will respond.
Unfortunately, we cannot accept phone calls on this topic during reading season
(December through March). Students who are not accepted are welcome to reapply
the following year after a successful year at another college. Please refer to
our policies and procedures on reapplying as a transfer student.
Early Action Deferral to Regular Applicant Pool
If you applied under the
Early Action plan and received a letter stating that your application was
deferred, this means that your application will be re-reviewed within our
regular decision applicant pool. Simply put, the admissions committee needs
more information (about you as well as the applicant pool as a whole) before it
can make a final decision on your application. You should arrange to have your
guidance counselor send your mid-year grades as soon as they are available. Also, feel free to send any additional
information that you think may strengthen your application. Applicants will
receive a decision by April 1.
Students who are accepted to Salve Regina may defer
their enrollment for up to one year. Students wishing to defer must submit a Request to Defer
Admission Form along with a non-refundable
enrollment deposit. It is understood that students who defer their admission
will not enroll in credit-bearing work at another college or university. Students
who do not enroll at Salve Regina within one academic year and/or who attend
another college or university during the academic year in which they have
deferred must reapply for admission to Salve Regina. A student electing to
defer enrollment must contact the Office of Financial Aid to determine filing
