Application Process – Master of Science in Nursing (MSN)

Step 1: Application & Application Fee

  • Submit your application using the Regent University Online Application. Pay the $50 application fee online during the application process.
  • Fee Waiver: Attend an on-campus or online information session to learn how to streamline your application process, discover financial aid resources and waive your $50 application fee.
  • Note: If you are unable to complete our application due to a disability, please contact our Admissions Office and an admissions representative will provide reasonable accommodations to assist you in completing the application.

Step 2: Submit your Unofficial College Transcripts*

  • We are able to examine and view your unofficial transcript from a U.S.-based school, which indicates successful completion of a bachelor's degree program, in order to review you for an admissions decision. Please submit your unofficial transcript to our Admissions Office by email to transcripts@regent.edu using the subject line: MSN Master's Application Pieces.
  • 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 bachelor's degree program. We will notify you if your previous institution will not release transcripts directly to us.

Step 3: Complete Your Admissions Questionnaire

  • In lieu of the previously required writing sample, please complete a brief admissions questionnaire based on your professional goals and interests. This should only take a few minutes to complete but please answer the questions completely and thoughtfully. This gives us a better opportunity to get to know you and align your objects with our programs. The admissions questionnaire can be found here. Once completed, it will be sent directly to an enrollment counselor who will be in touch with you right away to help complete the rest of your application.

Step 4: Submit Your Nursing License

  • In order to be admitted to the MSN program, you must submit an unencumbered/unrestricted nursing license from your state of practice.

Step 5: Submit a Reference

  • Use the Recommendation Request Form to submit your recommendation from a previous supervisor and/or educator. This recommendation may not be completed by a family member or friend. Recommendations received from family members or friends will be rejected and the applicant will be required to submit a new recommendation request for a non-family member.

Step 6: Admissions Interview

  • If an interview is necessary, the admissions office will contact you to schedule an appointment. The interview can be conducted on campus or over the phone and typically takes about 20 minutes.
  • Note: All items submitted as part of the application process become the property of Regent University and cannot be returned.

Schedule/Length of Program
The program may be completed in six or eight sessions or as warranted by the student. Completion of the program must occur within eight years of initial enrollment.
