All students must register for courses to be enrolled in a semester. Students are responsible for adhering to registration instructions and information. All potential new students, whether full- or part-time, should contact the Office of Admissions before registering.

Students must satisfy all financial obligations before they are permitted to register.

Students may drop and add courses without academic penalty during the time indicated in the academic calendar. If a student has not officially dropped a course or received an approved course withdrawal by the completion of the semester, the instructor must submit a final grade for the student.

Returning Students

In order to register, returning students must have clearance from the Business Office, the Office of Financial Aid, Health Services and their advisor. Registration dates may be found in the academic calendar. Returning students will receive additional registration information through their email account.

To register:

  • Visit with your advisor to review your registration plan prior to the start of registration.
  • Log in to My Information and select "Search and Register."
  • Select appropriate courses. For independent study and internship, complete the special forms required and submit them to the Office of the Registrar.
  • Complete your registration before the published deadline each semester to avoid costly late fees.

New and Non-Matriculated Students

New and non-matriculated students may register with the Office of the Registrar in Ochre Court. Students who are not able to register in person may submit a registration form by mail or fax. Graduate and continuing education students may also register online.

Incomplete and illegible forms are invalid and will be returned to the sender for additional information before they can be processed. See Tuition and Fees for important payment information. Be sure to include payment for tuition and all appropriate fees by check or Visa/Mastercard.

Mail registration form and payment to:
Office of the Registrar
Salve Regina University

Newport, RI 02840

Students may fax their registration form to (401) 341-2996.

Dropping and Adding Courses

Students are permitted to drop and add courses during specific dates published in the academic calendar. Students must follow the official drop/add procedure published in the schedule of classes. Deadlines for dropping and adding courses each semester are published in the academic calendar and are strictly observed. Failure to drop a class within published deadlines may result in a failing grade, while failure to add a course within published deadlines may result in lost credit.

Auditing of Courses

Students in good academic standing may audit courses. Students may register a course as audit, change from audit to credit or vice-versa only during the drop/add period. No academic credit is granted for audited courses, and on successful completion, a grade of "AU" (audit) is recorded on the transcript.

For undergraduate courses, auditors must fulfill course requirements except for the final examination. For graduate courses, audit requirements are determined by the instructor. At both levels, failure to satisfy the course requirements for auditing is a ground for removal of the audited course from the student's record.
