Application Process – Master of Education (M.Ed.)

Step 1: Application & Application Fee
Submit your application using our Regent University Online Application.

Pay the $50 application fee online during the application process.

Fee Waiver: Attend a graduate School of Education on-campus or online information session to learn how to streamline your application process, discover financial aid resources and waive your $50 application fee.

Note: If you are unable to complete our application due to a disability, please contact our Admissions Office and an admissions representative will provide reasonable accommodations to assist you in completing the application.

Step 2: Official Transcripts
An official transcript indicating successful completion of a bachelor's degree program is required. We are excited to offer you the service of requesting transcripts on your behalf using our Transcript Request Form*. Additional transcripts may be requested on a case-by-case basis. 

*Please be aware that it usually takes about one month to process a Transcript Request Form and receive a transcript from the issuing institution. However, it may take longer in some situations. It is ultimately the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that all transcripts are received by Regent University. With this timeline in mind, we do not suggest using this service within one month of a term start date unless you have submitted unofficial transcripts in addition to your Transcript Request Form. 

Step 3: Complete Your Admissions Survey
In lieu of the previously required writing sample, please complete a brief admissions survey based on your professional goals and interests. This should only take a few minutes to complete but please answer the questions completely and thoughtfully. This gives us a better opportunity to get to know you and align your objects with our programs. The admissions survey can be found here. Once completed, it will be sent directly to an enrollment counselor who will be in touch with you right away to help complete the rest of your application.

Step 4: Admissions Interview
If an interview is necessary, the admissions office will contact you to schedule an appointment. The interview can be conducted on campus or over the phone and typically takes about 20 minutes.

Note: All items submitted as part of the application process become the property of Regent University and cannot be returned.
