Frequently Asked Questions

What opportunities do we have to learn more about PC? Can we visit campus? 

Yes, admitted students and their families are welcome to visit campus. Advance registration is required. A calendar of available dates and registration is available through the Admission Status Portal. For those unable to visit campus but hoping to get a sense of the campus and our facilities, check out our virtual campus tour and our virtual residence hall tour

Can I defer my admission? 

Yes. Any student who wishes to defer their enrollment for up to one year must submit their enrollment deposit through the Admission Status Portal by May 1 and then request to defer their enrollment by July 15. Students can defer as long as they are not enrolled in full-time coursework elsewhere during that time. The full policy is available here.

What can we expect for advising and orientation programs? 

The Center for Orientation, Transitions & Leadership will host new student and parent/family programming through a mix of in-person and virtual for 2022. A mailing will be sent to all enrolled students in mid-May with information on how to register for these events, and other next steps. For additional program information and Fall Orientation updates, please see their website at

When are tuition bills distributed and due? 

Tuition bills will be sent to students in late June and balances are due on August 15.  Payment plans are also available for those who wish to make payments monthly.

Our family has been impacted by the pandemic, is there an opportunity to receive additional financial aid? 

We recognize that many families have been impacted by COVID-19 and have allocated significant additional resources toward need-based financial aid. Our financial aid counselors stand ready to review individual circumstances. If your decision to attend Providence College has been negatively impacted by your family’s current financial situation, please contact us so we can explore new financial aid options together. We might not be able to help everyone to the degree they hope, but we are going to try to help as many families as possible. The forms to appeal financial aid packages are available here:
