While we are all practicing social distancing, Salve Regina is offering a variety of opportunities to experience our welcoming community. We encourage families to request information from the University (if they haven’t already) and to check their email consistently, as we are regularly adding new opportunities for engagement.

  • Open houses: Begin your college search process with our open houses and explore what it's like to live and learn on Salve Regina's campus. Save the date: Our spring open house will be held Sunday, April 18. Additional details will be announced as they are finalized. In the meantime, we invite you to explore the recordings from our fall virtual open house.
  • In-person campus tours: Thank you to all the families who visited our distinctive coastal campus this fall. Led by student ambassadors, our campus tours are available in small groups (limit of four guests per family) and require a reservation 24 hours or more in advance of the desired visit date. Available dates, times and registration information for the spring semester will be available later this winter. We look forward to introducing you, in-person, to Salve Regina.
  • Virtual information sessions: These live programs allow you to hear about our mission, campus life and academics directly from an admissions counselor in a group setting. During these sessions, you will learn about our application process and timeline, have an opportunity to live chat with an admissions professional and view our video tour of campus. It’s a great introduction to Salve Regina and the opportunities that exist here.
  • Counselor meetings: These one-on-one video calls are designed to be informational and offer you a chance to have your unique questions answered, whether you are just starting your college search or in the final stages of making your college decision.

Led by student ambassadors, our campus tours are available to one family at a time (limit of four guests) and require a reservation 24 hours or more in advance of your desired visit date.

The Office of Admissions is also offering virtual information sessions daily.

If I am unable to visit campus, what are my options for learning more about Salve Regina?

The Office of Admissions has a variety of virtual opportunities to fit your unique needs and interests, including academic spotlights, workshops, student chats and one-on-one appointments with your admissions counselor.

Will my admissions and financial aid counselors be available during this time?

Salve Regina's admissions and financial aid counselors are available to work with you as you continue your college search. Find the admissions counselor who works with students at your high school or in your state at salve.edu/counselor or contact us directly at admissions@salve.edu. If you'd like to speak with a financial aid counselor, please email financial_aid@salve.edu or call (401) 341-2908 to ask questions or set an appointment to meet via video call.

If my school changes my grading to pass/fail (or changes my academic requirements), will that impact my enrollment or admission to Salve Regina?

In these unprecedented times, many secondary schools and colleges have made adjustments to best support the success of their students. In some cases, students are being allowed to drop courses or to take courses pass/fail instead of being awarded a letter grade. We also understand that some states have or will be waiving statewide testing.

  • For seniors who have already been admitted to Salve Regina for the fall 2020 semester, we will be flexible with your final grades. Our expectation is that you remain steadfast in completion of your work and fulfill the graduation requirements for your high school.
  • For students in their first through third year of high school, we encourage you also to remain diligent in your schoolwork and complete your work as outlined and required by your individual school.
  • For transfer students who are at colleges making similar accommodations, we are happy to work with you individually on expectations for admission to Salve Regina for this coming fall and/or future semesters.

We have always and will continue to do a full holistic review of each applicant, including academic work, involvement, accomplishments and goals, with an understanding that many of your opportunities have been paused or changed. If you have any specific questions or concerns, we encourage you to email admissions@salve.edu to speak with your admissions counselor directly.
