Next Steps

  • Once all application materials have been received and reviewed, you will receive an email from ViaTRM regarding your status change and an email from the OIP with your next steps. If you fail to submit the required forms, you may forfeit your acceptance. Please do not apply directly to the program/university until you have been approved to study abroad by the OIP. 
    • If you are approved, you will need to log back in and "commit" to your program, at which time you will receive further access to the portal to complete your pre-departure forms and documents.
    • If you are conditionally approved or denied, the OIP will be in touch with next steps.
  • You must be in good financial standing with the University. You are required to pay Salve Regina tuition and a $650 study abroad fee. This fee is waived for students attending a recognized Salve Regina exchange institution. Refer to the University’s home school tuition policy for details.
  • You will be billed directly by the overseas institution or program provider for relevant room and board fees. Additional costs vary by program and/or cost of living in your study abroad location. Please refer to your study abroad budget sheet for further details.
  • The participation agreement for parents/legal guardians will be emailed or mailed to your primary emergency contact. This must be signed and returned to the OIP.
  • The OIP will purchase supplemental international medical insurance for all accepted students. You will receive information about the policy and proof of coverage at pre-departure orientation.
  • Check your salve.edu email account and ViaTRM account frequently. You will begin receiving messages from the OIP about important pre-departure meetings and student visa workshops. Program-specific information will be sent by your overseas institutional contact.
