Accepted Transfer Students

Undergraduate Admissions

Enrollment, Orientation and Class Registration

To formalize your enrollment, you must send a $700 commitment fee/housing deposit ($300 for commuters) and the reservation agreement enclosed in your acceptance packet. Deposited students will work with the director for student transitions to develop a course schedule based on their intended major, transfer credits and program requirements.

Orientation information will be mailed once we receive your enrollment deposit. Transfer Orientation is held in late August/early September (typically the week before classes begin) for students entering in the fall semester and mid-January (typically the day before classes begin) for students entering in the spring semester. During Orientation, you will meet with an academic advisor to finalize your course registration. Attendance is required for all students enrolling at Salve Regina for the first time.


Accepted students will receive an unofficial transfer credit evaluation within approximately three weeks of their admission decision. Transfer credit is typically awarded for academic courses completed at other regionally accredited institutions with a grade of “C” or above when the coursework is comparable to that of Salve Regina and does not duplicate another course for which credit has been granted.

On-Campus Housing

Transfer students accepted for the spring semester are welcome to request on-campus housing. On-campus housing will be assigned on a space available basis. We cannot guarantee housing for mid-year transfers at this time, but we will provide timely communication from Admissions and Residence Life on our ability to accommodate requests. Transfer students who choose to pursue off-campus housing may contact the Office of Residence Life at (401) 341-2210 or

On-campus housing for the fall term is granted based on availability, with priority given to those that deposit by May 1. While living on campus has many benefits, some of our students (particularly juniors and seniors) enjoy living off campus in the surrounding communities of Newport and Middletown. The Office of Residence Life would be happy to discuss both on- and off-campus living opportunities with you, and assist you in pursuing either option.
