Salve Regina offers fee-free transfer applications to Sweet Briar students

The admissions office at Salve Regina will accept transfer applications from current students at Sweet Briar University with no application fee prior to an extended priority deadline of April 1.

“I believe that students who found a home in the family atmosphere provided by Sweet Briar would find a welcoming community and similar experience at Salve,” said James R. Fowler Jr., vice president for enrollment management. “It is our goal to provide a viable option for students who are experiencing a difficult transition so that they know they have a choice of solid academic options.”
