Accepted Transfer Students

Undergraduate Admissions

Enrollment, Course Registration and New Seahawk Orientation

To formalize your enrollment, please send a $700 tuition and housing deposit ($300 for commuters) and the reservation agreement enclosed in your acceptance packet. Deposited students will work with their transfer advisor to develop a course schedule based on their intended major, transfer credits and program requirements.

Salve Regina's New Seahawk Orientation provides transfer students with an educational and engaging introduction to life at the University. You will meet fellow new students, learn about University resources and policies, and explore the campus and Newport community. 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 semester is granted based on availability. 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.
