Salve Regina University is a small university with big opportunity. Located on one of the most beautiful campuses in the country, Salve Regina’s historic, oceanfront campus is a place where students feel at home. Students study and live in historic mansions, yet receive an education that prepares them for modern careers and a lifetime of serving their communities. Salve offers excellent professional and liberal arts programs (most popular are: business, education, administration of justice and biology). The classes are small and are all taught by professors (no grad assistants). Salve’s small size also makes it easy for students to get involved on-campus with clubs, activities, athletics or intramurals. At Salve, it is easy to become a leader, even in your first year. Newport offers the perfect location for students who love history, sailing and the outdoors. Students can surf, ocean kayak from First Beach or bike ride on the famous Ocean Drive. Newport also hosts several festivals throughout the year. All students get a free statewide trolley/bus pass that takes them throughout Newport or to Providence which is only 30 minutes away. Admission to Salve Regina is competitive. The Admissions Office looks at several factors in reviewing applications. Most important is your day to day academic work and the level of the courses you have taken. We also review recommendation letters and test scores. Leadership positions and community involvement are also considered in the review process.
