You must also apply separately for Scholar's Weekend by Sunday, January 4, 2015 at 11:59 p.m. (ET). Please click on the link below and follow the step-by-step instructions to apply for Scholars Weekend.
You do NOT need to submit your SAT/ACT scores and transcripts more than once. We will use the items you provide with both your application for admission and your Scholars Weekend application.
Selected students will be expected to visit the Virginia Beach campus, February 5-7, 2015. Our program will begin on Thursday evening, February 5th, with optional attendance at our UnChapel Service. Competitors must be in attendance starting Friday morning and for the duration of Friday through the closing banquet. Breakfast and a closing session will end our time together on Saturday morning.
During the competition, participants will meet with faculty and staff, tour our campus, interact with other students, interview with a panel of faculty and staff members and write an essay. Parents and students will be provided with on-campus accommodations at the Founder’s Inn and Spa. The weekend includes an elegant banquet in our beautiful Library Atrium and the opportunity for the student to spend the night in our residence hall with a current Regent student.
You must be an accepted student to Regent University for the fall semester 2015. The admissions application must be complete before Monday, January 5, 2015.
You must be a high school senior as of September 1, 2014.
High school GPA, standardized test scores, submitted resume and essay will be reviewed and the top 25 students will be invited to attend the event. In prior years, an invited student would typically have a GPA of 3.8 or better, a 1200 or above verbal and math combined SAT score, or a 28 composite ACT score or better.
Your Chance to Compete for Full Tuition Scholarships
You've studied hard and excelled in high school. Now is the time to plan your future. Regent University College of Arts and Sciences is proud to announce the tenth annual Scholars Weekend competition, February 5-7, 2015, where 25 students will be invited to compete for five full-tuition scholarships and several partial scholarships. These are the largest scholarship awards available to incoming Regent students.
If you are invited, you and a parent or guardian will be our guests here on campus in Virginia Beach, Virginia on February 5-7, 2015. You will have the opportunity to experience our academic programs, check out our community life and meet our expert faculty. Accommodations will be provided for you and your guest at our well-renowned hotel on campus, the Founders Inn Resort and Spa.
In order to participate in Scholars Weekend, you must be considered a high school senior as of September 1, 2014 and have been accepted for admission for fall 2015 by January 4, 2015. While admissions acceptance is required in order to participate in Scholars Weekend, it does not obligate the applicant to attend Regent University. The Scholars Weekend competition application is a separate application process, which includes evaluating your ACT or SAT score, official high school transcripts, GPA, resume and essay. This scholarship application is due by January 4, 2015. Students who apply for Scholars Weekend may also use the Scholars Weekend application as their application for admission to the Regent University Honors Program. Students who choose to apply for both programs with the one application will be notified regarding additional requirements for the Honors Program application. Participation in the Regent Honors program is not a requirement for receipt of Scholars Weekend scholarship awards.
Apply today to secure your place. While we encourage all high school students to apply, only 25 of the best qualified applicants will be invited to this exclusive event.
