Student Financial Responsibility
The student, as a condition of being enrolled at Salve Regina University is responsible for the following:
- Ensuring the timely completion of registration for proper billing and financial aid awarding.
- Ensuring the timely payment of all charges in accordance with the University billing policy.
- Ensuring that all documentation is submitted in a timely fashion to the Office of Financial Aid to enable timely disbursement of scholarships, grants, and loans.
- Ensuring that the Business Office has the most up-to-date billing address on file. Change of address forms are available at the Business Office, the Office of the Registrar, and online.
- Ensuring the timely notification to the Office of Financial Aid and Business Office of any outside financial assistance (local scholarships) to be received on the student’s behalf.
- Ensuring the timely processing of University Health Insurance waiver information each academic year if applicable.
- Notifying the Office of the Registrar immediately of any course or University withdrawal. There are financial consequences for failure to notify.
The student must notify the Business Office if the student does not receive a bill by July 15 (fall semester) and December 15 (spring semester). If the student does not ensure timely payment for all tuition, room/board (if applicable), and fees, the University reserves the right to do the following:
- Administrative withdrawal (removal from all current semester classes).
- Disallow residence hall and meal plan access.
- Disallow future semester registration.
- Refusal of registrar services such as grades and transcripts.
- Disallow participation in commencement ceremonies and withhold diploma.
Full-time tuition allows students to register for 12 - 17 credits per semester. Please be aware that participation in additional programs (such as second majors, minors, or other programs) may incur additional tuition charges.
Unpaid charges (greater than six months without payment or default on a signed promissory note) will be placed with a third party collection agency and the student will be liable for all additional costs associated with the collection of the unpaid charges. Collection costs will significantly increase the student’s financial obligation.
Financial Policy/Methods of Payment
The University has various tuition/financial policies and some suggested methods of payment available to students. These policies and payment methods can be found on the University website. The Business Office website is located at www.salve.edu/offices/business.
Withdrawal and Refund Policies
Students who wish to withdraw from the University during a semester or at the end of a semester must do so officially by completing a withdrawal form and exit interview. Undergraduate students withdraw through the Office of the Registrar. Time is of the essence for prorated refunds of tuition and board fees; it is important to complete and submit the form as soon as the decision to withdraw is made and provide the reason for withdrawal (medical, financial hardship, etc.) The withdrawal date will be the date the completed form is received in the Office of the Registrar. Information for refund policy and withdrawal procedures can be accessed at http://web.salve.edu/offices/business/withdraw.cfm
Students who do not complete the required forms may be responsible for a full semester tuition charge. Students who receive financial aid must arrange for an exit interview with the director of financial aid. Financial aid awards are adjusted accordingly for the withdrawing student. The University may initial a student’s withdrawal when the student has not registered for two consecutive semesters without securing a leave of absence.
Tuition Refund Insurance
Salve Regina offers an insurance plan that guarantees a tuition and room and board refund in cases of physician diagnosed physical illness (90 percent reimbursement) and mental illness (90 percent reimbursement) any time during the semester. This plan covers the academic year and is independent of the University. Applications are mailed to all full-time students during the summer.
The premium for this insurance plan varies from year to year but is generally approximately 1 percent of tuition (commuters) or 1 percent of tuition and room and board (resident students) and is billed and payable each semester. You must enroll in the plan before the first day of classes each semester.
