April 27 - To the classes of 2020 and 2021: Guests at Commencement ceremonies

Dear classes of 2020 and 2021,

Rhode Island officials recently announced a further easing of COVID-19 restrictions in the state. As a result, Salve Regina is pleased to share that the University will now be able to accommodate two guests per graduating student for all Commencement ceremonies in May. The dates and times for all ceremonies will remain the same.

  • Class of 2020: The deadline to RSVP for Commencement weekend is Wednesday, April 28. If you have not yet done so, please submit the RSVP form as soon as possible.
  • Class of 2021: The deadline to RSVP for Commencement weekend was Friday, April 23 and preference will be given to students who RSVP’d. If you did not RSVP, we will try to accommodate you. Please email the Commencement Office at commencement@salve.edu for instructions.

More detailed information, including procedures and protocols for Commencement weekend, will be communicated to students and families on Thursday of this week. Our Commencement website will also be updated as new details become available. In the interim, if you wish to book accommodations for the weekend, we have worked with our hotel partners to offer discounted rooms for you and your families.
