Helpful tips for Parents

While Regent University provides counselors and advisors to assist students with questions regarding degree programs, admissions and career goals, we realize that many decisions will be discussed in the context of the family.

One of the most valuable exercises you can complete in preparation of a college program is to help your student make some early decisions on the path taken toward his or her degree. Generally available in a simple, one-page form, the Degree Profile is a student-planning document that maps out each of the courses needed to earn a degree. The completed profile can then be reviewed with the academic advisor who will prepare the official degree plan.

If your student is ready for college but still uncertain about which degree to pursue, he or she may benefit in that the first two years of most college programs will involve a general education curriculum. This includes courses such as English, math, science and history, required of all college students, and typically required as core course work at any college or university.

Studying Abroad

Students in our undergraduate programs have the opportunity to participate in various study abroad programs offered each year through the College of Arts & Sciences as well as some of the university's graduate schools. Previous destinations have included England, France, Israel, Italy and Turkey.

Study Abroad programs vary in length from several weeks to a full semester and are generally conducted during the summer months. For information about study abroad opportunities, visit our Study Abroad page.

Graduate School Programs

It's not uncommon to have our best undergraduate students move right into a graduate program at Regent University. With eight graduate program options and a faculty of nationally and internationally recognized scholars, a master's degree from Regent University can open doors for an accelerated career in business and leadership, communication and the arts, divinity, education, government, law, or psychology and counseling.
