Transfer credit is awarded to matriculated students on the basis of official transcripts received from accredited postsecondary institutions. Qualifying grades at the undergraduate level are "C" or above. At the graduate level, grades of "B" or above are accepted for transfer.

Matriculated undergraduates who wish to study at another accredited institution should complete the Transfer Credit Approval Form and submit it to the Office of the Registrar.

College Level Examination Program

Matriculated undergraduates who have developed competence in basic subject areas may receive credit for acceptable scores on College Level Examination Program (CLEP) exams offered by the College Board. Transfer students may receive credit from CLEP exams taken prior to enrollment at the University, provided that their scores meet Salve Regina standards. Students may not receive duplicate credit for areas in which credit has previously been granted.

Advanced Placement

The University grants academic credit to students who have acceptable scores on the Advanced Placement (AP) tests offered by the College Board. Advanced standing and the actual number of credits to be granted are determined by the University after a review of the student's record and test scores.

International Baccalaureate

The University grants credit to students who achieve acceptable scores in higher level courses of the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. An official transcript of IB studies is required before a final decision on credit can be rendered. The actual number of credits awarded is determined after the applicant's record and official transcript are reviewed.
