Student Information


Commencement and Senior Week

Based on the information we are receiving from the Rhode Island Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Salve Regina has no choice but to postpone Commencement and cancel Senior Week activities. The University has cancelled all events with more than 10 people through the end of the semester and the Commencement Ball has recently been cancelled by the host hotel.

I speak for the entire community when I tell you that our hearts go out to the Class of 2020 and those who expected to proudly celebrate with them in May. We will honor your accomplishments during the months ahead, and you will have a Commencement. As details for the new date become available we will share them with you so that you and your families have time to prepare for this delayed, but nonetheless momentous and joyful occasion.

For additional questions regarding Commencement, contact the Commencement office at (401) 341-2162 or Graduating seniors should direct questions concerning social activities during Commencement Week to the Office of Student Engagement at (401) 341-2915.
