Application Instructions

For September admission, the priority deadline for applying for financial aid is March 1.

Returning students who have previously received financial aid are required to complete a renewal FAFSA. Please remember that the priority deadline is March 1. If this is the first time you are applying for financial aid at Salve Regina, refer to the section above for instructions.

Returning students will be awarded beginning in March each year. The priority deadline for filing the FAFSA is March 1 and students who do not complete the FAFSA by this deadline may see a reduction of aid. Grades are reviewed at the end of each year and students who are not meeting the academic scholarship requirements may be ineligible to continue to receive their scholarship. All verification documents are due by May 15 each year.

For January admission, students should file their FAFSA in November/December, as awarding is done on a rolling basis.

You are encouraged to use the IRS Data Retrieval, especially if you used it on the 2016-2017 FAFSA to prevent conflicting information.
