Processing and Notification

It is the applicant's responsibility to ensure that all required information is made available to Regent University for an admission decision. The admissions committee of the school to which application is being made will review the applicant's records when all information is complete. Applications are reviewed and evaluated in the order in which they are received. Admission decisions will be communicated to applicants in writing as soon as possible after the decision has been made.

Upon notification of acceptance, the applicant will be asked to sign an enrollment agreement, which must be returned with an enrollment deposit. This deposit will be applied toward tuition at the time of registration. It is refundable if the applicant notifies the Admissions Office of an intent not to enroll by July 1 for the fall semester, December 1 for the spring semester and May 1 for the summer semester.

Law School Applicants

February 1 is the priority consideration date for applications to the School of Law, although applications will be accepted until the class is filled. Every law school applicant must take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) and submit a Law School Data Assembly Service (LSDAS) report. Once this is done, the applicant will be placed on a 12-month subscription service, which will make the applicant eligible to take the required LSAT.

Regent University School of Law may admit a limited number of second-year transfer students. No third-year transfer students will be accepted; however, a third-year student may apply for visitor status. Transfer students must submit, along with the application for admission, a letter signed by the dean of the current law school certifying that the applicant is a student in good standing and eligible to return to that school. A maximum of 30 semester credits or 45 quarter credits, with course grades of C (or equivalent) or better, may be accepted for transfer credit, subject to a determination of course similarity or otherwise acceptable course content. All transfer students are required to take the Common Law and Constitutional Law courses at Regent University.

Joint-Degrees Applicants

To meet the growing demand for professionals who are trained in more than one field, Regent offers joint-degree programs between various schools within the university. Thus, a student may earn two graduate degrees in fewer total credit requirements than if the two degrees were earned separately. Joint-degree applicants must apply for admission to both schools of a joint-degree program and meet admissions criteria specific to each school. Each school will notify the applicant regarding acceptance to its degree program. A joint-degree applicant who is accepted in only one school may enroll in that school but not in a joint-degree program.

A student already enrolled who is applying to a joint-degree program must comply with the admissions procedures set forth by the other Regent school in which they seek admission. The student will be notified of the status of their application after all requirements have been satisfied.

Re-admission

Former students who have not been enrolled for one calendar year or more and who desire to enroll in the same degree program to which they were originally admitted should apply for re-admission through the Dean's Office. Such students should submit a re-admission application to their school. Students who have not been enrolled for more than one year must meet the degree requirements current at the time of re-admission.

Regent students, former students or graduates who seek admission to a different degree program than that of their last term of enrollment must contact the Admissions Office of their school of interest.
