Laptop Requirement for Bachelor of Education

Given that technology is essential to effective teaching, the CAS Teacher Education Department requires that all students seeking a Bachelor of Education own a personal laptop computer with MS Office tools. Students will utilize laptops during classes to meet technology-related standards for teaching and learning in grades PK-12. Other devices such as iPhones, iPads, or desktop computers do not meet the requirement.

Students may bring whatever brand of laptop they choose. All current Regent University students have access to Microsoft’s Office 365 at no cost. The Regent HelpDesk provides technical support, as related to your courses. The Regent HelpDesk does not provide support for the installation, repair, or maintenance of computer hardware, or the installation and configuration of computer software for personally owned computers. We recommend students purchase a laptop from a vendor that offers a hardware warranty, including accident damage coverage, and a service plan with 24/7 telephone and web-based support, for the duration of your program. Students can access Regent IT computer recommendations and information on discounts for laptops here.

The Bachelor of Education degrees lead to initial professional licensure. Students enrolled in these programs must both declare the major and be formally accepted into the professional studies coursework (UED courses). Upon declaring the major, the University identifies students as non-licensure track. Upon completing the requirements below, students will apply for formal admission to the professional studies portion of the major. A Teacher Education committee will consider a student’s completed application, faculty recommendation, and past academic performance to accept a student to the major’s professional studies. The committee may request an interview with the applicant. Upon acceptance, students may begin taking UED courses.

Eligibility criteria for formal admission to the (UED) professional studies coursework:
