Early College – Earn College Credits During High School

The Early College Program provides the opportunity to study at one of the world’s premier Christian universities and helps you start college with credits already under your belt — a strong advantage in your educational and professional career. In our Early College Program you will enjoy:

  • Accelerated program tracks and reduced requirements for your college degree
  • Transferable undergraduate credits (see list of recommended courses)
  • Substantial savings on tuition — each credit hour costs $155
  • Undergraduate Scholarship up to $4,650 through the Regent REP*
  • Learning from academic leaders and mentors who embrace a Christian curriculum and worldview

Early College classes taken at Regent may be included on your high school transcript as part of your high school curriculum. When applying for admission to another university or college, you will also need to provide that school with an official transcript from Regent. Regent is regionally accredited and our courses should transfer to other colleges with no problem as long as you earned a “C” or above in those classes.
