Review current tuition rates for each school as well as miscellaneous fees. We also list direct and estimated indirect costs to give you a clearer picture of the cost of attendance at Regent University. Undergraduate students can use the net price calculator for an estimate of their scholarship and financial aid options.
Learn about payment methods, including third-party payment plans.
The monthly and semi-monthly tuition payment plans are designed to help students pay for their higher education.
You may pay enrollment deposits, application fees and fines via a secure online payment form. To pay tuition and student fees, log on to the MyRegent Portal and click on Genisys. Learn more about tuition payment options.
APPLICATION FEE & ENROLLMENT DEPOSIT
An application fee is a non-refundable fee that is submitted with your application for admission. An enrollment deposit is paid after you’ve been admitted and serves as confirmation of your seat as a student. Once it is received it activates your student account and will be applied as a credit that will be used toward your first semester’s tuition.
Review important policies and procedures.
Important Changes to 1098-T Reporting
In previous years, your 1098-T included a figure in Box 2 that represented the qualified tuition and related expenses (QTRE) we billed to your student account for the calendar 2018 year. Due to a change to institutional reporting requirements under federal law, beginning with tax year 2018, we will report in Box 1 the amount of QTRE you paid during the year.
Depending on your income (or your family’s income, if you are a dependent), whether you were considered full or half-time enrolled, and the amount of your qualified educational expenses for the year, you may be eligible for a federal education tax credit. (You can find detailed information about claiming education tax credits in IRS Publication 970, page 9.)
The dollar amounts reported on your Form 1098-T may assist you in completing IRS Form 8863 – the form used for calculating the education tax credits that a taxpayer may claim as part of their tax return.
Regent University is unable to provide you with individual tax advice, but should you have questions, you should seek the counsel of an informed tax preparer or adviser.
What is Form 1098-T?
Colleges and universities are required by U.S. law each year to provide each student who is a “US person” for tax purposes with Form 1098-T. This form is to be used by the student to determine eligibility to receive the American Opportunity Credit or Lifetime Learning education tax credits.
Note: Receiving Form 1098-T does not necessarily indicate that you are entitled to claim any of the education-related tax credits or deductions.
What should I do with my Form 1098-T?
Form 1098-T should be given to your tax professional to assist in the preparation of your tax returns. If you prepare your own tax returns, you should keep your Form 1098-T in a file with your other tax documents; it does not need to be sent to the IRS with your income tax return.
What payments are reported on Form 1098-T?
Payments received for Qualified Tuition and Related Expenses (QTRE) up to the cost of QTRE. The IRS defines “qualified” education expenses as tuition and certain related expenses required for enrollment or attendance at an eligible institution.
Where can I go for help in understanding my Form 1098-T?
You may obtain additional information on Form 1098-T and the related tax credits and deductions from the IRS website, IRS.gov. If you have questions about the specific transactions reported on your student account at Regent, you may view your account details in the Bill and Payment Center, via Genisys. If you have additional questions please contact the Business Office by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 757.352.4059.
What semesters are included on Form 1098-T?
Regent reports transactions from the Spring, Summer, and Fall semesters that have a transaction date within the reporting tax year (January 1st – December 31st). Please note, the transactions reported on Form 1098-T are those posted to your student account during the calendar year, not academic year. Additional registration or payments that occur with a transaction date after December 31st will be reported in the following year’s 1098-T statement.
When will Form 1098-T be available for the current tax year?
If you have signed up to receive your Form 1098-T electronically, you will receive an e-mail when the form is available to view and print in the Bill and Payment Center, via Genisys. If you have not signed up to receive your form electronically, a hard copy will be mailed through the US Postal Service to the student’s permanent address on file by January 31st.
What is an Electronic 1098-T and how does it compare to traditional mailing?
Regent University students can choose to receive their IRS Form 1098-T through a secure website to view and print, the Bill and Payment Center, via Genisys. If a student does not provide their consent for electronic delivery, a paper copy will be mailed to the student’s permanent address.
STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE
Regent University does not require students to have health insurance, except as noted below for international students with F1 visas. Moreover, Regent does not sponsor an optional student health insurance plan; therefore, students are responsible for obtaining health insurance on their own.
For more information about health insurance requirements under the Affordable Care Act (also know as “Obamacare”), please visit www.healthcare.gov.
RESOURCES ON HEALTH INSURANCE PLANS
The following links may also assist you in finding an individual health insurance plan. This is not intended to be an exhaustive list of insurance companies. Regent does not endorse or support any of these companies, and simply provides this information as a resource to students. Students should research the options available to them, and make insurance decisions based on their specific, individual needs.

The Internal Revenue Service requires us to have either a Social Security Number (SSN) or Tax Identification Number (TIN) on record for each of our payees. We are therefore asking all of our vendors to submit an IRS Form W9 directly to our office. If this document is not returned we will be required to withhold 31% from any future payments and your payment may not be processed in a timely manner. If you do not already have a completed W9 on file, you may obtain a blank W9 through the following link: IRS Form W9
Please return your completed W9 to Accounts Payable by one of the following methods:
All invoices should be sent to the attention of the Accounts Payable Office.
Invoices may be emailed to email@example.com or mailed to the following address:

The University pays all vendors on “net 30” credit terms.
