What Students Are Saying

4.03 Average Rating
The college does not require interviews, but if your school brings in a representative from PC Office of Admissions, it would be wise to attend such a session so the admissions counselor has an association between your name and face when perusing your application. Applying by the Early Action deadline greatly increases the chances of winning a merit-based scholarship, and in recent years the number of available scholarships have increased considerably. Take advantage of campus tours or a day visit with our Admissions Ambassadors.
Trevor from Providence, RI
Apply early action if you can. It's non-binding and you'll know if you're accepted in January.
Although PC is a Catholic school, being Catholic is not a requirement and there is no pressure to participate in religious activities on campus.
Have fun! There are a lot of activities sponsored by various clubs on the weekends and most of them are free.
Anonymous from Lakeville, MA
If you get in, go to PC!!! There are all types of people here from all different backgrounds. Even though it is a Catholic school don't be intimidated. I am an agnostic atheist and I still love being at PC.
Meg
Academics need to come first. Time management is everything! Stay on top of your work.
Mac
Definitely go visit campus and get a tour. Providence's tour guides are students who give the best college tour you will go on.
Emily from Massachusetts
The school looks for a lot of community service and academics. Don't worry so much about SAT's since this is a test-optional school.
