Financial Aid

Salve Regina is genuinely concerned that the cost of higher education is a serious financial burden for many students and their families. The Office of Financial Aid works to make tuition more affordable so that qualified students interested in attending the University are able to do so.

Filing Deadlines

March 1: Priority deadline for applying for financial aid. All applicants must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year.

May 15: Deadline to submit all verification materials (including an IRS tax return transcript or IRS data retrieval for students whose FAFSA has been selected for verification).

Apply for Aid

Using the information you provide on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and other required documentation, we calculate the amount of family resources you and your parent(s) are expected to contribute towards your educational costs.

Your Financial Aid Award

Your financial aid package is generally a combination of grants, scholarships and self-help. Grants and scholarships are gift aid that does not have to be paid back. Self-help includes loans, which must be paid back, and work-study, which allows you to earn money towards college expenses, but does not come directly off the bill.
