Undergraduate Transfer Credit
Finish Your Degree at Regent!
Whether transferring from a community college, military career, or other regionally-accredited institution, Regent can help you maximize your qualifying transfer credits and finish your degree much faster. With our flexible transfer options, we accept credit from a variety of sources and count them toward your degree.
Waive your General Education requirements with an approved AS or AA Degree!
Beginning in Fall 2015, transfer students who have earned an Associate of Arts (A.A.), Associate of Science (A.S.) or Associate of Arts & Sciences (A.A.&S.) degree from any regionally-accredited United States community college (or other institution with whom Regent has an articulation agreement), and who meet the minimum requirements for admission to Regent University, will receive transfer credit for ALL general education requirements at Regent Univesity. Such students will only complete Regent's required biblical worldview cornerstone and capstone courses (GENE 100 and GENE 202/402), in addition to their major and concentration requirements.
Other flexible General Education transfer options
Regent also offers flexible general education options for transfer students who may not have a completed AA or AS degree. For example:
|Regent's General Education (GE) requirement:||Can be satisfied by transfer of:|
|Philosophy||-->||Any approved Philosophy transfer course|
|Global Studies||-->||Any approved World History, Sociology, Social Science, Cross-Cultural, or foreign language transfer course|
|Western Literature or Shakespeare||-->||Any approved Literature transfer course|
|Arts & Culture||-->||Any approved Arts or Humanities transfer course|
|U.S. History||-->||Any approved U.S. or regional History transfer course|
Other appropriate course and requirement substitutions may also be considered on a case-by-case basis. Ask us today!
Regent University will also consider transfer credits from the following sources:
- Direct equivalent courses from the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) pursuant to our VCCS Transfer Guides
- College-level work completed at other regionally-accredited colleges and universities
- Credit earned through approved entrance level examinations (i.e., AP/CLEP/DANTES)
- Military credit (see Military Partners for more information)
- Credits from non-regionally accredited institutions or other institutions of higher learning with whom Regent has an articulation agreement (credits will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis)
- A score of 3 or higher on high school Advanced Placement exams
- Experiential credit (visit http://www.regent.edu/acad/undergrad/admissions/learning_experience.cfm for more information)
To find out how your courses will transfer to Regent, use the Online Transfer Evaluation Database (Online T.E.D.). Online T.E.D. provides the student with information on how credits might transfer from various colleges across the country.
Once a student has been admitted to Regent University, the Registrar's Office will evaluate official college transcripts for possible transfer credit. For course credit from another college/university to be accepted, the final grade for the course should be no less than a "C" (2.0 on a 4-point scale). To ensure that Regent University reviews your college transcript, make sure you have all official college transcripts sent to the following address:
Registrar's Office, SC 218
1000 Regent University Drive
Virginia Beach, VA 23464
Transfer credit will be based on individual evaluation of the coursework to determine whether the course is equivalent to a Regent course. Students can transfer a maximum of 90 credits toward their bachelor's degree, requiring the student to complete at least 30 credits at Regent. For students wishing to complete the associate's degree, the total transfer credits may not exceed 48 credits.
When transferring credits, it is important to note that only the credit for the accepted course transfers; grades do not. You will be notified by the Registrar's Office once this process has been completed.
International Transfer Credit Evaluations
All transcripts that are not from an American institution must be evaluated. A course-by-course evaluation is required, and the transcript must be converted to the American Grade Point Average system. Transcripts in a language other than English must also include an official English translation.
