Undergraduate College Admissions Process
*Note: This is the application process for traditional incoming freshmen including current high school seniors or students with fewer than 15 transferable college credits.
1. Fill out our online application.
$50 nonrefundable application fee applies.
2. Submit your unofficial transcripts.
We are able to examine and view your unofficial high school and previous college transcripts from U.S.-based schools, which indicate successful completion of a high school diploma or GED, and any college credits attempted, in order to review you for an admissions decision. Please submit your unofficial transcripts to our Admissions Office by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Non-U.S. transcripts must be evaluated by an NACES-approved company. For further details, please review the International Admissions Checklist on the International Students Admissions page.
International Applicants: Please visit the International Students Admissions page for a more detailed explanation of the Regent University application information and to determine whether or not you qualify as an international student.
Upon conditional acceptance to the program by review of unofficial transcripts, Regent University’s Admissions Office will attempt to obtain your official transcripts from your U.S. degree-granting institution, which indicate successful completion of a high school diploma and any college credits you have attempted. We will notify you if your previous institution will not release transcripts directly to us.
3. If test scores are available, deliver your SAT/ACT/CLT scores to Regent.*
*Please note that an inability to submit SAT/ACT/CLT does not hinder your admissions decision or merit scholarship consideration.
4. Personal Statement (part of the online application)
In two paragraphs, briefly but thoughtfully, describe your testament of faith in God.
For example, you may describe what your relationship with Christ means to you or explain how you knew you wanted Him to be part of your life. Your response will help us better understand your personal spiritual journey.
5. Government-Issued ID
To ensure academic integrity, Regent University requires a copy of your government-issued ID. Please email a scanned copy or photograph of it to email@example.com with the subject line “Government ID.”
As soon as your application is completed and the application fee is paid, you’ll receive an introductory email and phone call from your enrollment counselor. If you have not submitted any of the items outlined in the steps above, you will need to submit them in order to be considered for admission.
An enrollment counselor will contact you when a decision has been made. If you’re admitted, you’ll receive instructions on how to complete the online Enrollment Agreement and Housing Application, if applicable.
All first-year freshmen in the Traditional Campus Program are required to live on-campus (unless they live within a 25-mile radius of Regent). To guarantee priority housing in the Commons, students must complete the following steps by May 1:
Step 1: You must be accepted for admission to Regent by April 25 to meet this housing deadline.
Step 2: After acceptance is confirmed, you must submit the online Enrollment Agreement and Housing Application (if applicable), and pay appropriate deposits online.Apply Now
