Submit Transcript/Test Scores

Make sure you are communicating with the Office of Admissions and the Office of the Registrar for your transfer credits.

If you are currently taking courses, when grades are available, please send your official college transcript to Salve Regina University, Office of Admissions, 100 Ochre Point Ave., Newport, RI 02840. In-progress credits will not be applied to your transcript until this is received. More information is available at salve.edu/registrar/transfer-credit.

Financial Aid

All transfer students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the United States are eligible to be considered for financial aid. Please complete the FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Financial aid awards will be emailed and mailed shortly after you are accepted, if your FAFSA is on file. Please refer to the Office of Financial Aid website for information about financial aid at Salve Regina.

Please note: If you are applying for the spring (January) semester, the FAFSA year is the academic year you will be matriculating at Salve Regina.
