In continued support of CDC guidelines, Rivier is moving the Accepted Students Day events originally planned for April 3 and 4 to a virtual platform.  Links will be shared via email, on individual microsites, and on this page.  

Accepted and Deposited Students

New Raider Day: May 2020, TBD

First-time and Transfer Students

If you planned to visit on Accepted Student Day, here is a new option!  We are planning a day for you to visit and meet with Rivier representatives before the Deposit Deadline Extension date of June 1st.  We will update this exact date once more information is available from the CDC in the coming weeks.  

Applicants

First-time Students

Those who are considering applying to Rivier now, please know that we understand you may have limited access to your academic records.  After you submit your application, your admissions counselor will work with you regarding using unofficial transcripts while high schools are closed.  We will accept report cards during this time frame.  

Rivier has rolling admissions and can work with you while we are not on campus.  We remain available to you throughout this process. 

 Apply Today

Transfer Students

Please continue to request transcripts from other colleges and universities through their websites.  It is likely that electronic requests will still be processed during closures or limited staffing. If that is not the case, submit an unofficial transcript.  

Questions

Email or text your admissions counselor as you have been and you will be communicated within a timely manner.  Leaving voicemail for a return call is also a good option.  

General questions can be emailed to admissions@rivier.edu and will be directed to the appropriate individual.
