Please utilize all federal grant and loan eligibility prior to applying for a private educational loan.
If you plan to pursue a private educational loan, please apply directly with your lender of choice. We will certify your loan once we receive a certification request from your lender. Effective February 14, 2010, new federal regulations governing private loans may result in a longer processing time than previously experienced. Please apply early to allow sufficient time for your loan to disburse.
The following is a full list of lenders offering private loans utilized by Regent students in the past three academic years. You are free to choose any lender that provides private educational loans even if they are not listed below. This list does not constitute a preferred lender arrangement. Regent University does not endorse, suggest or prefer the use of any lenders listed. Nor does the university prohibit the use of any lender of the student’s choice.

"Regent opened a door to self-discovery and selflessness. My Regent instructors encouraged me to operate on a higher level of motivation and others-oriented awareness."
“It is more of an amazing example of what God has for us when we allow Him to take the reins and trust that what He has in store is far better than what we can imagine for ourselves.”

“Regent definitely prepared me every step of the way, from a summer internship and moot court competitions to working with Singer Legal Group and securing a clerkship. I wouldn’t have had those same opportunities anywhere else.”
"I felt that Regent gave me a family connection."
"My online degree allowed me to incorporate my academics with my profession making my graduate experience at Regent incredibly relevant."
