International Programs sponsoring passport day
Members of the Salve Regina community are invited to get their first passport or renew their old one during the Office of International Programs’ passport day, which will be held from noon to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 13 in Drexel Hall as part of International Education Week.
All Salve Regina students who register for the event will be entered into a raffle to have their passport paid for by the Office of International Programs (up to $150). Participants should bring the required documentation listed below. All required forms will be available during the session, and a representative from the U.S. Postal Service’s Newport office will be on hand to make the process as quick and easy as possible.
