Transfer Credit Policy

Students admitted into the doctoral or master’s degree programs in the School of Communication & the Arts may request that graduate-level coursework completed at another accredited college or university be applied toward their degree at Regent. Read our transfer policy.

Joint Degrees

The Joint Degree program at Regent offers students an opportunity to subsequently earn two master’s degrees from different Regent schools, which may reduce the overall number of credit hours required to earn those degrees. Joint degrees are available between the School of Communication & the Arts and Regent’s other graduate schools.

Financial Aid

A college education and financing a theatre, film & television, journalism or communication degree require a significant investment of time and money. However, gaining the skills and credentials needed to pursue your vocational calling is well worth it. It’s an investment that will pay dividends for the rest of your life.

Students are encouraged to be both practical and creative when planning out how they will fund their studies. There are many forms of financial aid available ranging from third-party scholarships, low-interest federal and private loans, university scholarships, grants, employer reimbursements, and others. Make sure to do an exhaustive search to discover which of these, or combination of these, will help you to determine how to pay for graduate school and arrive at your goal. Please feel free to contact us with questions at finaid@regent.edu.
