Salem College guides you through each step of the process of becoming a Salem student.
Congratulations again on your acceptance to Salem College! You have demonstrated your dedication to exceptional academic performance and a life of leadership, so the traditions and excellence of Salem College are now open to you. Today, you gain a network of students, faculty, staff, and thousands of alumnae from around the world who will join you on your journey to an exceptional life!
Now, we invite you to take the next steps:
First, visit salem.edu/deposit to make your $250 non-refundable enrollment deposit, which will hold your place in the class. You will need your Salem Student ID number, which you can find in your acceptance letter at admissions.salem.edu! The letter also has all the details about your merit scholarship, if applicable, and more!
Second, if you are applying for the Spring 2024 term as a full-time student, you will want to immediately visit studentaid.gov to complete your 2023-24 FAFSA form, and include Salem’s FAFSA code: 002960. That will allow us to immediately provide you with an Award Letter containing any Spring 2024 need-based Federal and/or State grants, scholarships, and/or loans for which you are eligible. Then head to the Salem College Spring 2024 New Student Roadmap, where you can complete the few items necessary to get you ready to begin!
If you are applying for the Fall 2024 term, you will receive an email from us when the FAFSA is available for Fall 2024. As soon as those are available, you can complete them at studentaid.gov. When you have added Salem to your Fall 2024 FAFSA, you will receive an Award Letter from Salem with any Fall 2024-Spring 2025 need-based Federal and/or State grants, scholarships, and/or loans for which you are eligible.
Third, dive in! Take a look at our entire website, our programs, our student life, our outcomes – and get ready for the experience of a lifetime! We will let you know soon about our many events for accepted students, orientation (on-campus and virtual!), and all the details about next steps! Soon you will be on the road for your own journey to Salem, where we are eager to welcome you!
