It is recommended that all Early College students also complete the FERPA Waiver Form. By completing this form, the Early College student gives permission to Regent University to share information about tuition and grades to parents and high school personnel.
Tuition is $155/credit hour for classes in the online or on campus format. Books are not included in the per credit hour cost.
The only fees applicable to the Early College program are parking fees and late payment fees.
Financial aid is not available to non-degree students.
Early College students are limited to taking a maximum of 30 credit hours at Regent University. Such students are limited to courses listed on the recommended course list. Appeals for courses not on the course list or for an increase in the maximum credit hour limit should be directed to the Undergraduate Academic Advising Office.
Acceptance as a non-degree student does not guarantee regular acceptance as a degree-seeking student. Nor does it guarantee availability of courses.
A non-degree student is required to maintain a GPA of 2.0.
Early College students come under the FERPA regulations for privacy. Therefore, college personnel are not permitted to share confidential academic information with parents or high school personnel unless the student has granted permission for this action using the FERPA waiver form found on the Regent University website.
Students are required to determine how courses taken at Regent University will transfer to other institutions. Regent is NOT responsible for determining applicability of transfer credit or translation of college credit to high school credit. Special consideration should be given when taking courses in religious studies as these courses are particularly prone to having difficulty with transferring credit. Math 101 may also have some limitations on transferability.
Students who plan to take math at Regent but have not completed Algebra II should NOT enroll in College Algebra unless they have excellent grades in Algebra I and Geometry. College Algebra is equivalent to taking AP Algebra II, NOT standard high school Algebra II. Students who wish to take Calculus I at Regent, should have completed pre-calculus with excellent grades or Algebra II with Trigonometry, again with excellent grades.
Regent University reserves the right to change or cancel courses, so please call 800-722-3680 or visit our website to confirm the location, date, and time of your course(s) prior to the first day of class.
