Regent University Ranked #1 Most Affordable Private College in Virginia

VIRGINIA BEACH, VA (October 25, 2021) – Student Loan Hero’s recent analysis on nationwide college costs ranked Regent University as the #1 Most Affordable Private School in Virginia. Researchers examined data from more than 1,800 colleges and universities enrolling at least 1,000 students and focused primarily on bachelor’s degrees.

“Ensuring that students receive an exceptional Christ-centered education at an affordable price is of paramount importance at Regent University,” said Dr. William L. Hathaway, executive vice president for Academic Affairs at Regent University. “This recognition affirms that pursuing a degree at Regent University is a valuable investment.”

Regent University was previously listed among the top five percent of most affordable private Christian Universities (CCCU Tuition Survey, 2018). Regent’s institutional accreditation and nationally ranked programs demonstrate high quality and affordability. The university is regionally accredited by the Southern Association of Schools Commission on Colleges, the same organization that accredits schools including Duke, Texas A & M, Wake Forest, William & Mary, and the University of Virginia—adding even more value to a Regent degree.

Eighty-five percent of undergraduates at Regent receive financial aid. To further assist students in reaching their academic and career goals, Regent offers numerous scholarship opportunities and a flexible tuition installment program.

“We are continually reviewing our tuition accessibility and working diligently to keep higher education within reach,” said Claire Foster, executive vice president for Enrollment Services at Regent University. “Regent is advancing as America’s premier Christian university by providing results-oriented, affordable degree programs to help students be prepared to make a positive difference in the world.”
