Admitted and Prospective Students

For the health and safety of current and future Friars, all campus visits are canceled through July 1.  This includes admitted student programs, information sessions, campus tours, group visits, and transfer student interviews. The status of summer campus visits is unclear and registration is not currently available.

While the College remains operational, the Office of Admission is working from home and prospective students are discouraged from visiting campus. Students can be in touch with their assigned admission counselor through the Admission Status Portal (admitted students) or https://admission.providence.edu/contact/ (prospective students).

POLICY UPDATES

The Office of Admission recognizes that a number of secondary schools have adjusted their grading scales or adopted a pass/fail system for the remainder of the academic year. Students will in no way be impacted by these adjustments, nor do they need to request permission or notify the Office of Admission that their final transcript will arrive with these changes. Transfer students who received a Pass grade, in the Spring 2020 semester only, will be granted transfer credit for approved courses. Please note that there may be some restrictions on accepting courses with a P grade due to standards of external accrediting bodies or pre-existing department/program policies.

The Office of Admission is aware that many testing agencies are providing alternative arrangements to administer exams this spring. For the Class of 2024, all policies related to the acceptance of transfer credit (including Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, TOEFL, and IELTS) will not be changed and remain as published at https://registrar.providence.edu/policies/transfer-credit/.

Since it has become increasingly more difficult for transfer students to obtain class syllabi, we no longer require them for students who wish to transfer in fall 2020.  In place of syllabi, please submit course description to syllabi@providence.edu so we can review them for transfer credit.

For questions on any of the above information, contact the Office of Admission, 401.865.2535, pcadmiss@providence.edu.
