Office of Advising – Online Undergraduate & Graduate

How can an Academic Advisor help you?

At Regent, students have a team of professional academic advisors passionate about helping students achieve success in their academic and spiritual life. Throughout your educational program, we provide you with university resources and caring and practical support. Each student is assigned to a unique team of advisors knowledgeable about your chosen degree and skilled in equipping you with the various tools to guide you toward graduation.

Research proves that online students, particularly adult learners, require encouragement, time management planning, and proactive outreach and attention from their advising team to aid in their quest for success, degree progression, retention, and graduation.

Foundational Studies for New Students

Whether you are an online undergraduate student or a graduate student, we offer a foundational course that best prepares you for the nuances of your college degree.
