Office of Advising – On-Campus Undergraduate

How can an Academic Advisor help you?

At Regent, through our Office of Advising, we help facilitate a successful transition into college and adulthood by providing essential information that assists you in making well-informed education decisions.

A professional academic advisor is assigned to every new and returning residential and commuter student based on their chosen major. Our advisors are passionate about helping students achieve success in their collegiate and spiritual life and offer caring and practical support throughout their tenure as a student. This support helps build connections and provides an outreach channel for managing the challenges of college life.

Additionally, our office partners with other campus departments to ensure students know about the university policies and procedures available to them concerning their education.

Your First Semester at Regent

Attending college is an exciting time in the lives of our incoming students! A successful first semester can serve as the foundation for your college experience.

As academic advisors, we understand the importance of aiding our student’s success, especially during their initial semester here. That’s why we guide them in creating a well-balanced course load, keep them informed of policies and procedures and available payment options, and assist them in taking ownership of their educational plans.

Our new student orientation course, which students complete during their initial semester at Regent, provides insight into study strategies, stress management, community standards, and academic life as a young adult.

In addition to the orientation course, great online tools are available to new and returning students.

Honors Students

The Regent University Honors college.

The Office of Advising supports students by bringing awareness to their honors-specific course and degree requirements and insight into exclusive campus-wide resources and learning spaces. Additionally, we partner with the Honors College to ensure students understand L.I.F.E-changing experiential opportunities which will positively impact their collegiate journey at Regent. 

Several benefits are afforded to our Honors College student population, including priority class registration each semester due to the rigorous nature of their academic degree and expected engagement in campus and community activities, which requires early preparation and course access. 

For more insight into why Regent’s Honors College is uniquely suited for you, listen to this thought-provoking message from Dr. Joshua McMullen, dean of the College of Arts & Sciences and director of the Honors College.

Student-athletes

The Office of Advising partners with student-athletes in different ways to aid their potential for success. We ensure students remain aware of their degree requirements, understand the importance of becoming and remaining eligible to compete in the National Christian Collegiate Athletic Association (NCCAA) conference, and assist them with navigating the challenges of balancing a college education and cultivating their Christian character with their commitment to sports.

As a Division I South Region member institution in the NCCAA, Regent offers opportunities for student-athletes to participate in intercollegiate sports while giving our athletes a venue to glorify God. Regent’s transformational approach to athletic competition equips student-athletes to be winners first and foremost in Christian character, competing to win, yet transcending the scoreboard to be Christian leaders to change the sports world.
