If you have been accepted and have filled out the
appropriate paperwork, you will receive a certificate of eligibility form I-20.
The I-20 is necessary to apply for the appropriate visa for entry to the United
States. Most students will apply for an F-1 student visa.
The I-20 will indicate the latest date by which students
should report to Salve Regina, which is generally the first day of orientation
for new students. Students who need to arrange off-campus housing should arrive
in advance of this date to allow enough time to locate suitable accommodations
before orientation and registration begins.
If your plans change and you decide not to attend Salve
Regina, return the I-20 to the Office of International Programs and notify us of your decision. If you wish to defer your admission to a
subsequent semester, you will need to put the request in writing when you
You must have a passport valid for travel to the
United States and with a validity date for at least six months after your
proposed date of entry into the United States.
