VIRGINIA BEACH, VA (April 22, 2020) – To help students financially amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Regent University will freeze tuition for all classes offered in Fall 2020 through Summer 2021, both online and on-campus.
“In this current climate of uncertainty, we understand the financial struggles many students and their families face,” said Dr. Gerson Moreno-Riaño, executive vice president for Academic Affairs. “This tuition freeze reflects Regent’s commitment to helping students achieve their educational goals. Now is the time for students to focus on their futures.”
Students who enroll in Regent’s online or on-campus degree programs for the 2020-2021 academic year will enjoy the same tuition rates as the 2019-2020 academic year.
“In order to support academic enhancements, it’s not uncommon for colleges to increase tuition rates,” said Steve Bruce, vice president for Business Administration. “Although Regent officials had initially planned a modest tuition increase prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, that decision has been reversed and Regent will absorb the costs associated with ongoing improvements.”
Regent’s annual tuition is nearly $20,000 less than that of other private institutions (U.S. News & World Report, 2019-20). Additionally, Regent is among the top five percent of most affordable private Christian colleges and universities for bachelor’s programs (CCCU Tuition Survey, 2018).
Regent’s leading-edge degree programs offer:
- Flexible online and on-campus 8-week and 15-week course sessions
- Top-ranked academics with expert faculty and world-class support
- Transfer up to 90 credit hours
- Generous financial aid and scholarship opportunities
- Over 135 areas of study in fields the market demands most
- Ranked among Top National Universities by U.S. News & World Report, 2020.
